Creature — Human Rogue Ally
Whenever Zulaport Cutthroat or another creature you control dies, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life.
Zulaport Cutthroat Discussion
5 hours ago
Hey, you're welcome.
If you're willing to drop some funds for a single card then consider Food Chain ? It's a one card infinite Kobold token combo with Prossh, by repeatably exiling Prossh for mana and then casting him from the Command Zone. Cards such as Squee, the Immortal and Eternal Scourge can be cast from exile allowing you to exile them with Chain to make mana, then cast them again and keep doing this for infinite mana.
The infinite tokens combo is the piece you want for a win condition with several cards here. Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist make all your opponents lose all life because Prossh is a sac outlet. Purphoros, God of the Forge , Impact Tremors , Goblin Bombardment make all your opponents die from damage. Anger (only if you have easy ways to get it into your graveyard), Ogre Battledriver , Rhythm of the Wild are good to give all tokens and Prossh haste. Another way to give everything haste and a pump for a turn one kill is Goblin Bushwhacker . Smothering Abomination lets you draw a lot of cards from sacing tokens. Skullclamp is also excellent as draw with tokens.
If adding Chain then you'll need ways to find it. Necropotence , Diabolic Intent , Demonic Tutor , Dimir Machinations (transmute), Gamble are ways to tutor or draw it that won't break the bank. Plunge into Darkness , Demonic Consultation , Tainted Pact (with only one basic land of each type) are other instant ways to find Chain, but you exile all other cards until you find it. Sensei's Divining Top and Sylvan Library help to find/draw Chain or other cards as well as to help setup these spells that let you find one card exile the rest.

@ryprov Thanks Ry. Glad you like the look of the deck. I originally had Zulaport Cutthroat as that sac piece but I needed to make cuts and didn’t want the deck to have that typical wincon. When I play the deck and I find something that doesn’t fit I’ll throw one of those two in. I like that idea with Nim Deathmantle . I will definitely be considering that one.

- Commander's Sphere > Orzhov Cluestone
Can add all these upgrades for about $14. Most of these cards do something when other creatures die which triggers Teysa. Repeatable abilties and effects are very good in Commander.
Nonbudget cards to consider adding:
If you like some these suggestions I offer more help.
Good luck with your deck.

Fauna Shaman is another way to help tutor up those creature combos plus get creatures into the yard.
Zulaport Cutthroat is some redundancy for Artist plus it hits all opponents. If you only run one, Cutthroat is probably better.
Doom Whisperer can fill the yard for more recursion.
Thragtusk for life gain and 3/3 beast making machine.

NcGWaspy as for the lands, Blackcleave Cliffs is one of the best lands in modern. Being able to play Thoughtseize or Lightning Bolt on turn one is incredible. Blackcleave Cliffs and Concealed Courtyard on turns 1 and 2 will let you have access to any color combo you need. Essentially, you want all of your land to be able to be untapped for the first 3 turns because you want to be aggressive and fill the board with bodies.
Speaking of filling the board with bodies, I actually love Mogg War Marshal ! It is truly fantastic in this deck. It is 3 bodies for 2 mana, it can kill itself to trigger Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat if you don't have an Aristocrat. It also plays very nicely with Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, as it can be returned to get more tokens.
I love that you are into this deck! I wish I had more time to playtest more often.

"dying" means a creature is being sent from the field to the graveyard. exiling a creature will not cause Zulaport Cutthroat to trigger.

If I have a Zulaport Cutthroat out and a Felidar Guardian our then I exile that guardian with another creature with the same affect does that count as a trigger and thus I can repeat this 20 times for a comb
