Teysa, Token Shenanigans

Commander / EDH* WB (Orzhov)

mookie990


archetypes: token control

deck motto: Sacrificing tokens for fun and profit

Built using the white Forged in Stone precon as a skeleton, but it's been heavily modified since then to support both the token theme and Teysa's abilities. A typical gamestate consists of a source of token generation and a sac outlet, letting me transform resources into tokens, and tokens into value.

Gameplan:

early game: mostly focusing on hitting land drops, and playing small creatures in preparation for midgame, when I have more resources to throw around

midgame: start setting up engines - ways for me to repeatedly kill creatures/spawn tokens/draw cards.

lategame: engines feed into each other for massive value - mana turns into tokens, tokens turn into cards and removal. goal is to keep opponent's boards clear and keep attacking until they die.

Issues:

deck is rather reliant on building engines and having them stick around - if my token generation is cut off, or if I have no sac outlet, then the deck can't be as productive. also can have problems when under a lot of pressure - Teysa's ability exile ability is an inherent 3-for-1, which means it should only be used as a last resort, or if you have massive numbers of tokens to burn. I don't have a lot of spot removal other than Teysa, so getting a Grave Pact effect online is pretty important.

Sidenotes:

-no tutors, which wasn't intentional, but I think works well. deck is fairly straightforward to play, which means it's good for lending.

-I have one or two combos in the deck, but they aren't the primary focus. opponents will generally see their inevitable demise.

-good amount of recursion. I sort of want to incorporate a reanimator subtheme.
