Elenda, the Dusk Rose

Legendary Creature — Vampire Knight

Lifelink

Whenever another creature dies, put a +1/+1 counter on Elenda, the Dusk Rose. (Is put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens are put into the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

When Elenda dies, create X 1/1 white Vampire creature tokens with lifelink, where X is Elenda's power.

I saw that you're trying to keep this on a budget, so absolutely ignore as much of this as necessary.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Suture Priest, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Phyrexian Tower, Altar of Dementia, Phyrexian Altar, Pawn of Ulamog, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Nether Traitor, Ravenous Chupacabra, Brought Back, Tragic Slip

There's really a lot you can do, so I will leave it here for now.

No matter what you decide to do, I highly recommend cutting Temple of the False God and replacing it with almost any other land, even just another basic. That card is a dead land for the first 4 turns of the game and I personally feel that it's more productive to have something more reliable.

Ok, with more context, there are more cards I can suggest. Lurrus of the Dream-Den and Omen of the Dead are a pretty cool value engine. Gravebreaker Lamia is a version of Oriq Loremage. As you're also including , Doomed Traveler is perfect. To draw cards, I heavily suggest Grim Haruspex and/or Smothering Abomination. With enough tribal synergy, Species Specialist could work, as well. Oh, and Elenda, the Dusk Rose is just nuts. Bushmeat Poacher is another underrated card to draw cards.

I really like your deck, hope you still work at it.

Is Keeper of the Accord the right card for this deck? There are chance that you spend 4 mana for a vanilla 3/4; and you need more than 3 basic plain for make it a ramp. I prefere Solemn Simulacrum over him. I don't really like Smothering Abomination, even if it seems make you draw cards. You can cut out Elenda, the Dusk Rose as well, 4 mana and for two 1/1 creature if you are unlucky.

From your Maybe list I like Bitterblossom, Deadly Dispute, Dusk / Dawn. Can Moon-Blessed Cleric be one more tutor for Anointed Procession? Do you ever considerate Goblin Sharpshooter? I'd like try it with Teysa Karlov. Speaking of goblins: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Siege-Gang Commander but maybe they are for another kind of deck. Does Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker works with Flamekin Herald? Remainder text for Apex Devastator says: "Multiple instances of cascade each trigger separately", so maybe yes, you can double cascade your sorcery commander. For sure it doesn't work with Academy Rector. Purphoros, God of the Forge maybe is to much strong and turn all your opponent against you.

esperdeathblade I'd say Junji is a similar power level to Archon of Justice. They both have strong effects that get even better when Teysa can double them, but 5 mana is a steep price to pay. It's almost certainly less impactful than most of our 4-drops, like Luminous Broodmoth that doubles all of our creatures or Elenda, the Dusk Rose who spirals out of control. But let's evaluate his ability individually.

Reanimating a single creature from any player's graveyard is decent, but for 5 mana, it's a poor rate. We can reanimate a creature for 1-2 mana with Animate Dead or Reanimate, and we don't play either currently. Since Junji can reanimate two creatures with Teysa out, it gets a bit better, but Victimize can do the same for 2-less mana.

Junji's other ability, forcing each opponent to discard two cards is comparatively more powerful. With Teysa out, we discard 4 cards, sometimes putting multiple players into topdeck mode. However, the power of this effect is very situational. Many decks have permanent-based card draw engines which will already be out by the time we resolve this 5-drop, and some decks don't care about losing their hands or will even thank us.

There's something to be said about Junji's versatility, since you can choose differently based on the situation, and you're even allowed to choose one of each with Teysa. Overall though, it's a bit too slow and low-impact for this current build. In a slower, grindier meta with more control decks, I can see the discard with reanimation options being quite valuable. And definitely play him if you think he's fun!

Necrosis24 on Commander for Abzan Aristocrat deck

Tayam, Luminous Enigma could be a fun one with a side focus of +1/+1 counters if you want to include it but isn’t necessary.

Pairs well with Cathars' Crusade and Elenda, the Dusk Rose. And helps build a graveyard for Tombstone Stairwell.

Cauldron of Souls, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Luminous Broodmoth for some recursion to pair well with the aristocrat theme.

Living Death and Command the Dreadhorde to take advantage of the self mill Tayam does.

BertilFalukorv on Commander for Abzan Aristocrat deck

As the title says, I'm looking for some help finding a good commander or commander pair for what I want to do.

My deck idea is to get as many creature cards in the yard as possible, while going wide at the same time.

I mainly want to abuse Tombstone Stairwell with something like Cathars' Crusade White gives me some access to player protection (to prevent Bojuka Bog from emptying my graveyard and the orzhov combination gives me access to stuff like Elenda, the Dusk Rose and other deathtriggers. Green has mainly been to ramp, create tokens and great recursion spells to bring back my Tombstone when I cant pay the upkeep or when someone destroys it, without relying too much of white which is mainly bringing back specifically enchantments.

Originally I was planning to use either Teysa Karlov or Teysa, Orzhov Scion but I feel like greens bring me some really good cards like GY recursion with flashback on it. Please give me some insight of my idea :)

I also made a deck of this in Mardu with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death which gives me red for things like Purphoros.

Im not sure how many creatures I want to run minimum to make Tombstone work, Id rather not selfmill but draw cards instead. All the help I can get is appreciated. Mainly Im trying to find a home for my favorite card without building the entire deck around it ( Tombstone Stairwell )

Nice deck! Gave me plenty of ideas for my own (Teysa Karlov Death Doubling). Some that I think could help in here on a budget are: Reassembling Skeleton, Dross Harvester, Falkenrath Noble, and Sengir, the Dark Baron.

If you wanted to bust your budget a bit, Elenda, the Dusk Rose is an absolute game-changer for me.
