Not that I think it'll come up, but be careful when running Bad Moon because if someone drops a Darkest Hour it can really turn bad lol.

The more I look into it, Green and White have a lot of enchantment hate cards for mono-black:

Luckily I don't think anyone has any of these so they won't be a problem for a while. I also just realised that mono-black has no enchant removal at all, I think the best bet would be Eye of Doom and just hope that you and the teammate pick better permanents than your opponents. There is also Scour from Existence but you're probably wanting the game to be over by the time you have 7 mana.

Hey there! Looks like you have a big focus on tokens in this deck, more so than just death triggers, since I see cards like Ayara, First of Locthwain, Soul's Attendant, etc. For this strategy, I have a few recommendations:

If you're looking for cards to cut, I have some suggestions, but I can't say for certain. Only you know exactly what your plan is for your deck.

  • Beckon Apparition seems weak. It only provides a 1/1 token. If you feel like you need more of this effect, I'd put in Hunted Witness.

  • I've found that Lightning Greaves is somewhat underwhelming in Teysa. You're usually pretty resilient to targeted removal since you don't rely on any one creature.

  • I wouldn't play Lotus Petal in a non-storm or non-artifact deck, unless I'm missing some sort of combo you have. Petal's temporariness tends to make it less powerful than traditional ramp.

  • Vampiric Rites is pretty slow and expensive per draw. I'd rather play one of the draw engines I suggested.

  • Similar to Lotus Petal, Mana Vault is pretty temporary. I'd prefer permanent ramp like the ones I suggested. I can see running it though if you really feel like you want to turbo out a big card.

  • I'm not sure how consistently you can keep Mox Amber up. It doesn't look like you have a ton of legendary creatures, so I'd prefer more consistent ramp. In practice, if you find you're able to stick a legend really easily to activate it, then it's probably fine.

Again, I can't really tell you exactly what cards to cut, especially since aristocrats has so many viable card choices. It's really up to you how you want to take this advice. Hope these suggestions help.

Hey, I've got my own Teysa Deck that I love to play with, which is focused heavily on combos and comboing. If you wanted a good tutor to help get your combo pieces, I'd recommend Diabolic Revelation since it can tutor many things at once. Also, seeing as you have both Karmic Guide and Reveillark, you should know that as long as you can sacrifice them, they go infinite with each other.

Seeing as you have a few cards that are already close to comboing together, I thought I'd also recommend a few cards that can help you go infinite, if that's what you want to do. Your Requiem Angel, when paired with Divine Visitation cycles infinite tokens for infinite death when you sacrifice creatures. You also have the older Teysa, Orzhov Scion which, when paired with Darkest Hour does the same thing and cycles infinite tokens.

Those are my main suggestions if you want to complete combos. Divine Visitation and Darkest Hour. As for a good tutor, Diabolic Revelation is pretty good. Finally, Blasting Station and Altar of Dementia are both good sacrifice artifacts that will allow you to do a ton of damage to your opponents or mill them out.

I hope these suggestions are useful, and good luck with your Teysa deck in the apocalypse!

Added a few cards but still trying to stay away from easy infinite combo's which is why Painter's Servant and Darkest Hour is not in here

Looks promising. I do feel you should consider Liliana, Dreadhorde General .

Cabal Coffers to go with your Urborg if finances allow for it.

Expedition Map can help tutor out cabal or coffers get your ramp online a bit sooner.

I personally don’t care for Teysa, Orzhov Sicon and Darkest Hour for aristocrats. I hate having Death Triggers that don’t trigger due to another card.

All in all I do like the looks of the deck.
