ThePianist on Teysa, Ozrhov Scion Combo

Especially when I have other back up combos, for example with Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Pitiless Plunderer, a sac outlet and one of my recursive creature (Bloodsoaked Champion or Reassembling Skeleton) I have infinite death trigger, It also works with Teysa Karlov or Pawn of Ulamog instead of Teysa, Orzhov Scion, and even if it's not infinite without Pitiless Plunderer it is still 2 death triggers for each black mana I have

kirbysan I hadn't considered Tenacious Underdog until you pointed it out, but he seems like a strong grindy card. The fact that you can just keep bringing him back to draw 2 cards apiece with Teysa and get continuous fodder seems good. The only problem is that 4 mana every time is a lot. I'm not confident enough to include him off the bat, but I'll keep my eye on him.

Body Count feels a bit win-more. It's not as strong as our other draw outlets that only require one sacrifice or also count as fodder. If we're getting a million death triggers in one turn, we're probably winning anyway.

Life Insurance feels worse than either Smothering Tithe or Black Market, and we're playing neither of those. I don't see room for these 4+ mana slow ramp spells. They're nice in grindy games, but we'd rather be developing cheap fodder in early turns and hopefully ending in mid-late game.

Thanks for your suggestions! I should hopefully have time to do the New Capenna deck update sometime soon, so stay tuned for that!

Nic44 Oh that's an interesting format idea! I love budget alternatives since the more accessible the game is, the better. I can see wanting Bloodsoaked Champion in the circumstances you mentioned. Good luck and have fun!

Thank you for your response. My group has really come to enjoy playing a fun and challenging Commander variant called "2DH" which limits cards in one's deck to not exceed $2.00 concerning TCGPlayer "listed median" price (with Commanders having a cap of $5.00 by the same rule) so I may add Bloodsoaked Champion to my list just for the added redundancy since lack of viable tutors is a thing in this format. Being able to reanimate Reassembling Skeleton at instant speed on opponent's turns is a huge plus for skellie, though...and in my "regular Edh" Teysa deck I only play it and not Champion.

As one who enjoys piloting Teysa Karlov, I love your list.

Forgive me if this has been brought up already...but since Reassembling Skeleton is such an important card in your list, have you ever considered Bloodsoaked Champion? He's kind of a better skellie, only with (IMO) a minor condition to be met in attaining "Raid."

Hey Masterful Have you ever considered including Altar of Dementia and Bloodsoaked Champion for additional combo pieces?

For example: Altar of Dementia, Pitless Plunderer, Champion or Reassembling Skeleton.

Take out Garna, the Bloodflame, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Rushblade Commander, and Intimidation Bolt and this deck is pioneer legal. Some of them aren't all that good here anyways and they're not worth being in a much higher power format.

Cards that are also not very good: Chief of the Scale, Goma Fada Vanguard, and Pacifism. Cut Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants if you have trouble finding space for other cards.

Your best creatures would probably be Blood-Chin Rager and Chief of the Edge, so run 4 each.

Since you have Herald of Dromoka, you can do some pretty cool things with exert creatures. Brave the Sands also has this effect. Ahn-Crop Crasher, Combat Celebrant, Devoted Crop-Mate, and Glory-Bound Initiate are all really good warriors when paired with vigilance. Resolute Survivors too if you want to commit this route, although Brutal Hordechief is probably better. Path of Mettle  Flip is an interesting one too for grindy matches, maybe more of a sideboard card.

If you want more wide aggro, run Bloodsoaked Champion and either Gutterbones or Zurgo Bellstriker, take out vigilance or toughness effects, and work to increase power. You can win with a couple Arashin Foremost, Brutal Hordechief, and more Secure the Wastes.

Fatal Push is probably the best pioneer removal spell, but if you find larger CMC creatures in your meta Cast Down or Heartless Act will hit almost anything.

For mana base, Battlefield Forge and Caves of Koilos are better budget dual options than anything that comes in tapped. Secluded Courtyard and Unclaimed Territory are almost auto includes for tribal.

You have opened my eyes. I am, in fact, running one Cryptic Serpent so the nonbo doesn't matter. I'll run Treasure Cruise instead of Improbable Alliance. The only thing I worry there is that my turn 2's probability of having board presence goes from 79% to 70%, and I am more prone to getting slammed by Bloodsoaked Champion and the like. But that card advantage though...

Bloodsoaked Champion feels like the obvious card to drop for the Gravecrawlers.

I also think you don’t necessarily want G.Messengers - your land count is super-low and i’m not sure you want extra 3-drops, especially when some of your other cards want mana available for their abilities.
