Nice deck there dude!

Here are some ideas for improving it :

First time that came to me, the lands! Having the fetches could really helps you dig what you need better with the Sensei's Divining Top and the others cantrips effect you got. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is really good to help you fix your black mana, Karn's Bastion is good synergy with the commander itself.

Also, having MORE planewalkers to this deck sound really an advantage. Just the -1 of Aminatou, the Fateshifter could mean doing the abilities more times in the same turn, even better if you have the Oath of Teferi or The Chain Veil .

As for the creatures, I would try to find some space for those super valuable : Snapcaster Mage , Sun Titan , Eldrazi Displacer , Gilded Drake . For better version of Angel of Despair , either Hostage Taker and Ashen Rider .

Last advice would be, get some Wraths!

One of my favorite board wipes in a token based deck is Martial Coup because you can either get 4 dudes for 6 mana which is eh or you can get 5+ and increasing starting at 7 with a board wipe.

Things like Ashen Rider , Archon of Justice , and Angel of Despair can work really well in any WB deck but especially when you are recovering them from the graveyard and wanting them to die anyway.

Would you also consider a Swords to Plowshares ? It's simply strong with no additional costs for 1 mana and who cares that they gain some life unless it's hundreds? And even then it could be hundreds that aren't killing you. Also, since you have the infinite combo for Teysa with Darkest Hour, you could also consider Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate for a finisher with that mana. I win with Debt without even going infinite. Storm Herd is also a heavy hitter.

SideBae on Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim EDH (Help Needed)

First of all, thank you for including the budget in your deck description. It helps me to know what kinds of cards to suggest.

Swords to Plowshares is one of the few one-for-ones I think should be regularly run in EDH -- you should include it in this list. It is easily better than Path to Exile , as the ramp is significant in a format like EDH, where people are always trying to do big things. Ashes to Ashes is another good piece of removal, as it kills two things with one card; Kaya's Guile is similar. Despark is worth considering, if only because of its versatility.

Entomb is 7-odd dollars these days, and if you pair it with Animate Dead , Unburial Rites , Reanimate or Dance of the Dead you can cheat out a fatty like your Harvester of Souls or Sheoldred, Whispering One nice and early. Buried Alive is similar to Entomb . Consider an Ashen Rider or Grave Titan as other reanimation targets.

Caves of Koilos is a good enters-untapped land to consider, as is Isolated Chapel . Shambling Vent , Command Tower and possibly Godless Shrine or Silent Clearing are also worth considering. Speaking of lands, I think you're running too many. Thirty-three lands is generally about where you want to be -- thirty-eight is generally only appropriate in landfall-style, Azusa, Lost but Seeking -type decks. Including more mana-rocks like Mind Stone , Coldsteel Heart , the soon-to-come-out Arcane Signet , Fellwar Stone or Prismatic Lens is also worth considering.

Blind Obedience is a good way to slow down your opponents while providing a way to recoup life you pay to your Necropotence or similar. Blood Artist and Cruel Celebrant are also good cards in the vein of draining opponents.

Card advantage is a big deal in EDH. Phyrexian Arena is worth considering, even if it is a big expensive these days; Twilight Prophet is similar. Night's Whisper and Ambition's Cost are good one-shot draw-spells.

Dawn of Hope is worth considering, especially if you also choose to add Mentor of the Meek . Having tokens to sac with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim 's abilities (especially the second one) is good. Which brings me to recursive creatures: Having creatures who return themselves to the board will make Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim that much stronger. Nether Traitor , Reassembling Skeleton and Bloodsoaked Champion are worth considering.

Mother of Runes is a good way to protect your creatures from spot-removal. Similarly, hatebears like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Vryn Wingmare , Glowrider , Aven Mindcensor or Leonin Arbiter . Smallpox is a card I really love in EDH, and its daddy Pox is worth a nod of consideration as well -- I do think Smallpox is the better of the two though.

If you choose to run Snow-Covered Plains and Snow-Covered Swamp s instead of regular basics, you can run Dead of Winter as a pretty powerful boardwipe that gets around Gaddock Teeg . Planar Cleansing is also worth consideration.

Fiend Hunter is an interesting card I thought of when I looked at this deck. Sac-ing him with the exile trigger on the stack makes the 'return to battlefield' resolve first, resulting in a permanent exile effect. This may be too marginal a synergy to include, but I figured it'd be worth at least mentioning.

Diabolic Edict and Chainer's Edict are both better than Blighted Fen .

Right. That's all from me, at least as far as I can think right now. Good luck with deck building!

Other suggestions would be to remove Ashen Rider it’s to expensive. You have Archon of Justice and that is enough. You don’t need both.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose should be in the deck.

Remove Sadistic Hypnotist only because de it’s not an instant speed sac outlet.

Other death trigger life loss cards need to be added Vindictive Vampire , Pious Evangel  Flip.

To help get lands in to play you should look at Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

To help better control your opponents creatures I suggest Dictate of Erebos and gravepact

Life_autonomous on Trigger Warning with Teysa Karlov

KibaAlpha I agree, Ashen Rider and Darien, King of Kjeldor could go. Gotta disagree on the Grand Abolisher , though. Lots of spellslingers and "nope" decks in my meta, and it has saved me the trouble of being hit with a counterspell or Maze of Ith . I like the idea of seeing Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite in there, and I have a Phyrexian Reclamation lying around. Burnished Hart is a good staple, and I need to get my hands on an Anguished Unmaking . Thanks for the tips!

I would do the following if I was building a deck around both abilities of Teysa Karlov .

Remove, Ashen Rider to expensive not enough value, Darien, King of Kjeldor there are better cards that would synergize, Grand Abolisher not really needed

Check out the creatures from Ravnica Allegiance with the "afterlife" trigger.

Add, Phyrexian Reclamation , Malevolent Awakening , Bontu's Monument , Burnished Hart , Knight of the White Orchid , Crypt Ghast , Anguished Unmaking , Generous Gift , Ethereal Absolution , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
