Teysa Karlov's Death Engine

Commander / EDH* WB (Orzhov)



Decklist for Teysa Karlov. Made to make the most of death effects with incidental synergies for lifegain and tokens.

The general strategy is just like any other aristocrats style of deck:
-Get the pieces of your engine.
-Make creatures.
-Sacrifice those creatures.
-Drain your opponents.
The deck can essentially operate just fine with or without Teysa on the field, though it's obviously twice as good if you can keep her out.

I would be happy to hear any suggestions or advice.
(Cards in the Maybeboard are mostly due to high price).
