Creature — Elemental Incarnation

Fear (This creature can't be blocked except by artifact creatures and/or black creatures.)

Whenever a creature deals damage to you, destroy it.

When Dread is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Well that's nice THCue! I feel like your swaps make sense, since attacking is not what I want to do anyways, I'm going to think about those too.

Propaganda was previously in the deck, but I've swapped it out sometime ago.

No Mercy is a functional upgrade: once I'll have enough money for it I'll buy one! Until then, Dread will do fine.

Anyways, keep up the good work and let me know!

This is a good start! You might consider these: Warstorm Surge (causes your general and your assassins to murder a dude when they enter), Fire Whip , Power of Fire , Unquestioned Authority , Asha's Favor , Stuffy Doll , Lapse of Certainty , Royal Assassin , Mogg Maniac , Dread .

I have a Queen M deck too if you wanna check it out. It has rattlesnakes and a lot of atypical stuff too that you might find interesting.

K1ngMars on What Creature Should Replace Teysa, ...

I definitely confirm what's already been told you by others. Cards have to be included only if they support your deck's gameplay and/or flavour. You may include some pet cards just for fun, but trust me, sooner or later, you'll find a game in which you draw one of those and you'll be screwed... It happened to me too, it's a matter of trial and error sometimes.

Anyways, if you desperately need cards that punish your opponents from attacking you, I'd suggest: No Mercy , Dissipation Field and Dread just to name some from the top of my head. Remember though, that if you're dealt lethal damage, the triggered ability of all those cards, Teysa EoG included, will fizzle because you're dead (and as a state base action your spells, permanents and such are exiled). That's saying that those cards won't help you when facing lethal damage.

On the other hand, if what you need are tokens, I'm sure you'll find better options depending on the deck and/or needs you have. I think of Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Ophiomancer or any of the plentiful white effects to create tokens, like Secure the Wastes , or to double them like Anointed Procession .

If you need good protection creatures, again, it depends on your colors and deck strategy. Do an advanced search on Scryfall with keyword "protection" and some commander identity color limitations and you'll be good to go.

I dig it.

Generally, I'd include fewer Madness cards that buff your creatures and include more tutors, reanimation spells, and control pieces to help you buy time to find your combo. Black damage taxes are good, like Dread or No Mercy .

Archfiend of Ifnir over Archfiend of Spite . Maybe some more modular wipes (like Crux of Fate , Decree of Pain , or Kindred Dominance ) + spells like Grim Return or Endless Obedience . Have a way to win with other people's decks after they exile your graveyard or Worldgorger Dragon .

Maybe play Talisman of Dominance over any other rock than your signet. Play a cost reducer or two, as well, like Jet Medallion or Ruby Medallion , or more 2-drop rocks like Charcoal Diamond and Fire Diamond . I'd play the red and black cycle lands for extra draw/dig/loot, as well.

It's a good synergy and making it so that they can't attack you with more than a few creatures is a viability. Also like using Insurrection as a wincon is viable. Also I think a prison deck might also be better if you made it Jeskai though for stuff like Isperia, Supreme Judge or make it Mardu for Dread type effects.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Have you considered Dread in place of No Mercy ? It does cost 2 more mana, but, for that additional cost, it is a 6/6 creature that is difficult to block and automatically recurs itself when it dies.
