cfost827 You don't lose too much consistently without Scrubland. It shouldn't matter. I've tried Smothering Tithe a few times, and it's decent, but it's too slow for me personally. I'd include it with Revel in Riches if I wanted that package or if your meta is heavy blue/draw oriented. I also wouldn't skimp on Ophiomancer. I underestimated her at first, but if you play a few games of her, you'll see just how much value she pumps out with sac outlets. I play Blinkmoth Nexus because it's cheap sac fodder at best and a colorless land that can chump block at worst. However, the cool thing about aristocrats is that there's so much redundancy that any few cuts likely won't matter. You can customize the deck to your liking, especially since it's hard to say what's the absolute best. This isn't cEDH after all.

Awesome, thanks for the feedback ! I think another reason is that I'm not running Scrubland since I just don't want to spend the money for it currently. Maybe in the future! But I'll try replacing Aria Mesa to start with a plains.
Also, have you ever considered adding in Smothering Tithe? It's usually just an EDH staple and my buddy thought it can never hurt to add it (Unless you play tested it already of course). Blinkmoth Nexus or Ophiomancer were 2 cards that I was thinking of possibly replacing..but we shall see.

If an opponent attacks with a 2/2, we could activate muta and then target it with blinkmoth and give it +1/+1 so we could block with a 3/3 Muta. It's more common of an occurrence than dealing 20 damage over multiple turns with a single Muta. So we could end up seeing that interaction in maybe 1/10 games vs a full 20 damage win in 1/100 games. So in that regard, Mutavault is certainly something to consider, not as a full fledged alt win-con but just as a built in layer of defense that can help us survive a bit longer and then pull off the combo sooner. That might actually be worth the extra $1 a piece vs Inkmoth Nexus.

Hey there! As asked for on my page, I will most certainly do my best to give you as many suggestions as I can, though aristocrats is, again, not exactly my area of expertise. I hope this helps, and before I continue, I wish you the best of luck on your deck.
Let's start off with the lands/ramp. The lands seem pretty great choices for a budget deck, couldn't really have done it better myself, but there are a couple cards you may want to consider that you might have missed. Brightclimb Pathway Flip is probably one of the biggest ones, and it is only around 2-3 bucks. It's very valuable to have a choice like that in the game, and neither would come in tapped which is super good. Salt Flats is also a great card, and while it comes in tapped, you can always rely on it for a good source of colored mana, or simply use the colorless part of its ability. It is also less than 50 cents, making it a great include for a budget deck. Blighted Fen might also contribute to the theme, but is absolutely unnecessary unless you like its ability. Now, we get into a whole set of cards that could be interesting to think about, though whether you think you should include them or not are entirely up to you. Teysa is all about sacrificing and having sac outlets, so what if you had lands that had the option to act as creatures? This would let you tap for mana, and have the option to sac a creature if you needed it! Here are some of the better ones you may want to consider:
- Shambling Vent
- Foundry of the Consuls
- Blinkmoth Nexus
- Dread Statuary
- Frostwalk Bastion
- Mishra's Factory
- Cradle of the Accursed
Now you may not like most of those, but possibly even just having one or two of the better ones like Blinkmoth and Mishra might be pretty beneficial, as it's always good to have things to sac in the worst-case scenario. In addition to that, all of the cards above are less than a dollar if not a small bit more, meaning they could most likely work price wise. To wrap up all the land part, Crystal Vein is also something good to consider, giving you a turn extra in mana at the price of the land, as well as Field of Ruin, which is just a overall not bad card in general for harming your opponents.
Now, what about ramp? While your ramp looks pretty good, here are a couple sweet ones you may have missed: Dark Ritual!!! This guy is amazing, for one mana you can pretty much cast teysa turn 2 with another land out, or it can just give you a huge leg up in general! Certaintly worth considering. Talisman of Hierarchy is also a super cheap great card I would definitely recommend for the deck, and it will surely benefit you more than the Prismatic Lens, though having both is simply better. Commander's Sphere obviously isn't as good as arcane signet, but it is still pretty great due to the draw ability and is also definitely worth considering. Cabal Ritual is also great with teysa since you'll be sacrificing a lot. To top that all off, Knight of the White Orchid and Gift of Estates are pretty good and definitely worth looking into.
Altogether, for your mana base, there isn't anything too dire, it all looks pretty good, though there are certainly a few budget cards I mentioned there you should definitely consider. I'm now going to give some recommendations on some all-around good cards to include, and save the specifically aristocrats stuff for last. Swords to Plowshares is pretty cheap and yet an amazing staple in all decks, I would definitely consider that, especially since in your case you can play it on one of your own things to get extra triggers, while also gaining the life. Generous Gift is also an amazing removal card that I have in my best deck and it's pretty good too! Same as for swords, you even have the option to play it on yourself and get the elephant token that you can sacrifice again! Fumigate and Cleansing Nova are pretty cheap but good board wipes that I would definitely try including too, to top of all the removal. In black, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, and Night's Whisper are pretty good for draw that you may want to think about.
Now sorry if this is a bit rushed, I am short on time, but you may want to think about some of the following cards, with graveyard recursion, tutors to graveyards, and good sac cards!
- Buried Alive
- Fleshbag Marauder
- Pitiless Plunderer
- Dictate of Erebos (not budget, but would be worth it)
- Village Rites
- Cruel Celebrant
Now before I end this, I would consider checking out EDHREC, where you can find so many suggestions for teysa based on what other people have (link to teysa on edhrec here and also checking out the combo section, as you may find many combo-y cards that could work in the deck! Anyways, sorry this was a bit rushed, I hope it is of use to you, and have a wonderful day! Happy tapping!

Secure the Wastes is a bomb, abuse it ;)
The best dual tapped manlands are really Celestial Colonnade, Lumbering Falls, and Creeping Tar Pit, abuse the heck out of them! Mishra's Workshop, Inkmoth Nexus, Blinkmoth Nexus, and Mutavault are also all amazing, so do as you wish with those! Otherwise Treetop Village, Faerie Conclave, and perhaps even Frostwalk Bastion are good enough to test ;)

Hi. Nice deck. And a great input for my own Deck which is more on the budget side.
Nethertheless a great primer.
