Thank you for all your suggestions.

I was hoping for Simic but of course I take everything I can find to the topic.

The way it looks, you're most likely to be punished for tapping countries. I might have thought of something like Angel's Trumpet + Shisato, Whispering Hunter or Yosei, the Morning Star .

Thanks for linking my profile. :D Athreos, God of Passage and Yosei, the Morning Star are really cool additions. I would add Athreos myself if I had one. It should be a really strong card in this deck.

I hope you had fun playing this deck. Personally I really like to play this deck.

Millikin is essentially a 2 mana rock with a free card advantage engine built in thanks to all of the recursion in this deck. It's easily one of the best turn 2 plays. Blade of Selves has great synergy with all of the enter the battlefield effects, you can attach it to a Solemn Simulacrum for a free explosive vegetation every turn or a Skyscanner to see more cards. Additionally, it can be used with Yosei, the Morning Star for two death triggers on every attack thanks to the legend rule which wins games if it isn't dealt with.

So I'm trying to put together a kind of budget version of teysa karlov aristocrats and I've gotten kind of stuck. Currently trying to thin the deck down, but also looking for more budget options to add in as well. The deck I've put together has been a blast so far.

In the future I'm slowly going to acquire the non-budget options, but in the mean time I'm looking for good cards that cost 5$ or less, and cards that I'm currently using that aren't that good. I do know Anointed Procession , Exquisite Blood , low cost tutors, expensive lands, Yosei, the Morning Star , Kokusho, the Evening Star , Grave Pact , Dictate of Erebos , and Elenda, the Dusk Rose exist; but I don't have the cash for them currently. Keep an eye on this deck though, improvements are coming!

The deck focuses on synergies with teysa karlov's ability to double death triggers. It likes to gain life, and punish opponents with non-combat damage. Ultimately it also likes to be a token deck, the tokens themselves gaining vigilance and lifelink thanks to teysa. Teysa karlov aristocrats, God of death

Whenever I feel like one of my decks is slow or clunky, I go through this mental process.

Firstly, how is your mana cost? 3.1 isn't bad, but there are a few high mana cost cards that aren't impactful enough. Debtors' Knell is a seven drop that demands a full turn cycle before it does the same job as Animate Dead . Why not Rally the Ancestors or Return to the Ranks ? Even Whip of Erebos or Seance would be good here.

Too costly for their impact:

I will type the other process in another comment. Give me but a moment.

Yosei, the Morning Star could be a good creature for you. His death trigger letting you pretty much tap someone down and skip their untap step so they’ll be using there next turn doing nothing and if you add Teysa Karlov to the deck then him and any other death triggers will happen twice.

Panharmonicon May also be a good addition since then you’ll have double your etb triggers.

SufferFromEDHD First off, love the username haha. Secondly thank you for the suggestions! Did my best working them into the deck list. I didnt know about Flesh Carver but Hallowed Spiritkeeper I've had my eye on at one point, just wasn't sure at the time about fitting him in and guess I just forgot about it. You're right about Yosei, the Morning Star though, while it isn't the best in other decks it does fit perfectly well considering Teysa is the commander. Thanks!!
