This seems really interesting, but also pretty narrow. You'd need a critical mass of matching CMC between auras and creatures you can get into the graveyard.

May I suggest a revised version that is more flexible?

Monomanamaniac on Need help making room in …

SynergyBuild that's actually where I'm hoping to keep it tbh, when I do get to play, my group is tough, but not cedh, I want the deck to be hyper focused but not so much so that they stop wanting to see it at the table. I'm ecstatic at the 2.3 average cmc I've managed to pull off, even with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite in the list lol. When it's finished it'll likely be under 2, which is perfect for mono-white considering the weakness of mana ramp lol. Thank you though, I'm glad it's finally getting to be at least worth considering lol

If you do run Dovescape you could also run Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite which would buff your birds and kill your opponents birds. So you swap a bird for a nonland permanent and then the bird dies.

Fibonachos on The Hateful Trait

Thanks for the comments KuzcosPoison! Cut Vindicate for the Nature's Claim, and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons for Mangara, the Diplomat. Also switched out Ready / Willing for Eladamri's Call which should help fetch either answers like Containment Priest, or finishers like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Mirror Entity. Definitely considering Destiny Spinner, will see what playtesting shows. I think Alms Collector is a bit too off-track for this deck (expensive/3 power). Grand Abolisher is definitely a good one, but recent spikes have it out of my price range :/. Crawlspace isn't bad, but I'm less worried about being hit wide, and more worried about being hit high by one or two big bois. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is good, but no way of ensuring she doesn't get killed when she attacks as she is a 3/2.

Omniscience_is_life well Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite has a number of uses a) it's a one sided board wipe, anything that survives is greatly powered down, and it clears out all the chump blockers that might be stopping me. It shuts down any deck that relies upon making a swarm of small creatures/ tokens B) it powers up my team, including Balan, and is a big enough target to occasionally eat single target removal before my beloved commander. C) it's a pet card, I paid 20$ for it a long time ago when the deck was helmed by Kemba, Kha Regent.

I agree with you though for the most part though. I mostly wait to cast it as a last resort, or if I'm out of equipment to cast. As far as they go though, I'm running somewhere between 25-30 equipment already which is more than plenty. When I get more swords that'll change though, you can't have enough swords lol.

I appreciate the feedback and I'll definitely consider taking elesh norn out to build a deck around her.

Super awesome list, still so stoked you cracked down and got the Sword. My only question is: why are you running Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite? I mean, don't get me wrong, Ellie's a beast, but she doesn't fit the strategy of the deck as it were. And as a 7-drop... I'd much rather have the mana to play and equip something, which for that much you can definitely do.

Hi Ghostbreath77!

Great, seeing something decent going on in Orzhov :) As for your gameplan you can probably take inspiration off of this list: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/lurrus-stax-cedh/

Deafening Silence and Spirit of the Labyrinth seem like auto-includes to me if you wanna go the disruptive route.

I'm playing combo-teysa since 6 years. You're most certainly right on your choice of commanders since card advantage is crucial in strong metas. However Teysa, Orzhov Scion lead my deck leaning to a markov-like list (https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/symphony-of-the-knight-primer/), trying to generate value from bodys with cards like Grim Haruspex and Carnival of Souls. First target for tutoring is always Skullclamp which is awesome when teysa is out and/or you play cards like Pitiless Plunderer and Zombie Infestation which can loot through your whole deck and need minimal setup. Most compact combos are the dead-cat-loop and gravecrawler and carrionfeeder on your choice of Phyrexian Altar, carnival or pirate.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite might be considerations for a decent top end, making ad nauseam more painful obviously.

If there gonna be some ideas thrown together I can see some proper Orzhov Lists coming up :) great to see that there's more people into it!
