Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim Discussion

Sorry to burst your bubble, but their companion criteria exclude each other from being in the deck. If Mulato is the companion, Kulato isn't allowed in the deck and vice versa. Commanders themselves aren't excluded from the companion criteria, that's why Lurrus of the Dream-Den can only be a companion for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Karlov of the Ghost Council or Killian, Ink Duelist.
So running one as a commander, or even just in the 99, means that the other is not allowed as a companion.

What's your budget, and what sort of ultimate power level are you looking for?
In b/w, you'll definitely want to rock all your mana rocks. Orzhov Signet, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Hierarchy, and some number of colorless, depending on your build/preference, like Mind Stone, Everflowing Chalice, definitely Sol Ring, possibly Wayfarer's Bauble, etc.
I would strongly recommend getting a "backup" commander, in case the playgroup won't allow a walker - I personally loathe walkers as commanders, so it'd be a bad night to show up and be told they don't want to play. On that note, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is a great Cleric commander.
The things to focus your budget on, overall, will be card draw, ramp, and removal; most of the non-cEDH "engine" cards won't cost that much, but things like sweepers, good targeted removal, and good card draw definitely will. And, of course, the good tutors are very expensive. You can also make a reasonably-budget reanimator list that'll work well, which will let you abuse something like Vilis, Broker of Blood.
The best all-encompassing resource will be looking at existing lists on here, edhrec, or similar.

To stay more in black, I would consider some sort of vampire sacrifice, counters, and/or lifedrain strategy. Your black cards that could work well in such a deck would be Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Embodiment of Agonies , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Mortician Beetle , Souls of the Faultless , Castigate , Disentomb , Gerrard's Verdict , Revival / Revenge , Despark , and Grim Return . Most of the other black cards are at least playable as well. The only two I'd cut in most circumstances are Underworld Dreams and In Garruk's Wake . The former needs more build-around while the latter just costs too much to be a consistent boardwipe.
Cards I'd look at adding for such a build might be Gatekeeper of Malakir , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Sangromancer , Dictate of Erebos , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Victim of Night , Indulgent Aristocrat , Pawn of Ulamog , Grim Haruspex , Silversmote Ghoul , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Malakir Cullblade , Blood Artist , Urge to Feed , Feast of Blood , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Archangel of Thune , Cruel Celebrant , Drana's Emissary , Indulging Patrician , Malakir Bloodwitch , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanctum Seeker , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Pious Evangel Flip.

Hero of Precinct One and Tome of the Guildpact are some decent cards that care about multicolored without being so themselves. Orzhov picks could be Pillar of the Paruns , Beckon Apparition , Blood Baron of Vizkopa , Nightsky Mimic , Kaya's Guile , Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Karlov of the Ghost Council , Resolute Rider , Seraph of the Scales , or Vizkopa Guildmage . I tried to pick card suggestions that fit in with either the multicolored or the lifegain plans. Popular inclusions in more tempo or aggro focused Mimic/Divinity builds include Castigate , Orzhov Charm , Mourning Thrull , Cartel Aristocrat , Sin Collector , and Gift of Orzhova . Combine the two and you might get some value out of a shell of Ajani's Pridemate , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Light of Promise , Wall of Limbs , and Archangel of Thune .
Anyway, now that I've probably named every black and white card ever printed, do let me know if you have questions. Good luck!

Cool deck, it reminds me a lot of some old Alesha, Who Smiles at Death decks I used to play a lot. You currently have 2 Priest of Forgotten Gods - so maybe you could replace one of them with the staple Blood Artist ? I don't know your budget but cards like Ashnod's Altar , Dictate of Erebos , and- since you do have access to white- either Athreos could be worth looking into. There are also some solid budget options like Suture Priest and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim if you decide to splash in white

I've made several versions of EDH decks around the Teysa's and token spawns. Some neat stuff you can do;
Spirits! Afterlife is useful, but we can also use stuff like Bishop of Wings alongside Requiem Angel to get some neat trigger stacks. Divine Visitation on top makes it absolutely brutal, but that's probably not where your deck wants to go.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim . I mean... :)
