When Hunted Witness is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, create a 1/1 white Soldier creature token with lifelink.
Hunted Witness Discussion

Hangarback Walker it's pretty strong in the mid game and with Black Market and the other ramps you can cast it for high values. The only cons are that you can pick it from gy only with Phyrexian Reclamation , but still, you can tutor for it in the same way as Hunted Witness . Also it's a great top deck!

These are the cards I dont know if follows the aggro strategy (or quick growth) on your deck: Veteran Swordsmith , Veteran Armorsmith , Topan Freeblade , Soldier of the Pantheon , Precinct Captain (sometimes you wont be able to attack for two turns. He is better when you "haste" him), Loyal Cathar Flip (his other form escapes "human tribal", so he doesnt triggers lot of abbilities on the deck), Elite Vanguard , Archetype of Courage (cost 3 is too much, it may leave you without mana for Brave the Elements ).
Some options of cost 1: Hunted Witness , Akrasan Squire , Thraben Inspector and Ardent Recruit which would call for more artifacts and equipments. I think of him because I would use Ratchet Bomb . It is good against midrange enchantments, tokens, cretures and artifacts. And there are God-Pharaoh's Faithful and Novice Knight , they are perfect to be powered with aura and all sort of things (against red decks).
And there are plenty of lands that can help you draw, gives extra mana, enhance your creatures and are way under 3$. I hate to depend on luck, and I hate extra lands in hand, so I would use 20x lands, basic and non basic, plus 4x Secluded Steppe .

hey, Endrobot! you asked me to come up with some cuts for the deck in return for upvotes, so here I am! hmm tough decisions here.. theyre all very synergistic, but I'll do what i can to the best of my ability. Reassembling Skeleton works well because you can sac,bring back and repeat as long as you have the mana but he doesn't have a death trigger. Hunted Witness , Doomed Dissenter , Doomed Traveler , Imperious Oligarch & Orzhov Enforcer are great low cmc creatures that synergize really well with teysa, but maybe theyre just not inpactful enough for EDH? i dont know you dont want to cut too many low cards. Plus, they all make tokens when they die and with teysa out, they make double tokens, with lifelink and vigilance so maybe just a few of those? maybe Batwing Brume ? its a cool effect and i see the synergy but i would put in a Path to Exile instead? Smothering Abomination works well too, and card-draw is essential. but his ability doesn't double trigger with teysa. plus, it seems like you have plenty of draw. Pitiless Plunderer is good..good ramp..but if youre gonna run him id throw in a Revel in Riches as an alternate win-con. but what Kiba said: it is better at flash speed. a Vedalken Orrery would be great if it wasnt $30. i only own one now im considering putting it in my teysa build instead of my new chainer deck. hmm more cuts more cuts... if youre gonna keep your deck low to the ground and not take out all of those two drops like i said (which cutting low cmc cards may be a bad idea, i'll admit) then you could afford to cut a couple lands? you have ramp with Solemn, the hart, all the rocks and the plunderer. it shouldnt be too bad cutting at least one or two lands. especially with the new mull rule. Sorry. I'm all over the place with my suggestions. I certainly hope I was atleast some help. Please let me know what you end up doing! im curious now. and i like what you got here, btw. +1 from me!

I really want to get some Priest of the Forgotten Gods for the deck. I’ve considered Judith, the Scourge Diva and Cruel Celebrant but initially dismissed the life drain effect since I like be more aggressive with cards like Falkenrath Aristocrat . I’ll definitely look into getting a few copies of them both.
I thought about using Fatal Push , but for my playgroup meta Tragic Slip is going to more effective against my groups Dino and indestructible focused decks. Spark Harvest replaced Bone Splinters since my playgroup uses a lot of planeswalkers. Dreadbore could be good so I’ll keep an eye out for those as well. My main goal is to get two more copies of Falkenrath Aristocrat and focus on sacrificing the humans like Doomed Traveler and Hunted Witness . Seraph of the Scales is awesome, but is also out of my budget. I like having Martyr of Dusk just in case my opponent has a way around Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet ’s zombie engine and it’s saved me a few times. Same with Shamble Back but I am looking for a better alternative since I don’t always have a creature ready to exile for it.
Thank you for the recommendations!

Personally I would consider using 2 or 3 copies of Judith, the Scourge Diva and a playset of Priest of Forgotten Gods . If the budget is not an issue a playset of Bloodghast would work splendid in this deck, though you would need to rework your mana base with some fetches and shocklands.E.g Blood Crypt , Bloodstained Mire , Sacred Foundry and Arid Mesa . Perhaps 3 Seraph of the Scales instead of Hunted Witness and more copies of Cartel Aristocrat as your sac outlets. I would remove Shamble Back and Spark Harvest completely. I would use 3 Fatal Push and 2 Dreadbore instead as a removal package. In place of Utter End and Raise the Alarm I would use playset of Cruel Celebrant or Blood Artist as the main drain engine of the deck. I would also run Tithe Taker in place of Martyr of Dusk . As for the sideboard 2 copies of Grafdigger's Cage for graveyard hate, 2 copies Vandalblast for artifact hate, Bedevil and an extra copy of Anguished Unmaking

Ever considered Worldsoul Colossus since you have many creatures?

I might add Ajani, the Greathearted and Pledge of Unity because you don't have many ways to get +1/+1 counters on your creatures in the first place (with a total of 6 cards that actually have something to do with counters). I would cut your Silverback Shaman s, Aggressive Mammoth s, your Silhana Wayfinder , and one of your Woodland Champion s for 3x Ajani's, and 4x Pledge of Unity's. Your land count is also way too low. 19 lands is not nearly enough to play on curve. Adding more would definitely increase the decks fluidity. Cutting your Law-Rune Enforcer s and your Hunted Witness s to add more lands could be a great start!
Hope this Helps!

BW has always been a pet colour archetype and I like where this deck is going. A few questions arise thought when reading the decklist. First of all, your deck seems to contain 61 cards, which isn't really recommended. Also, you're running a lot of 3X time cards. I would rather see some cards go, staples of standard such as Hunted Witness or Dauntless Bodyguard , as they have little impact in modern. Better options exist in the current modern card pool such as Doomed Traveler
if you are going for a more aristocrats deck, maybe consider dropping Knight of the Ebon Legion as that card fits more in an agro style deck or vampire synergy.
A simple way to make aristocrats better is to incorporate token generators such as Lingering Souls .
If you're going for a more budget deck, than this is a good start but if you're willing to spend a bit more money in your aristocrat's deck, upgrading your removal package for Path to Exile and Fatal Push is a must-do. Mortify is too expensive (mana wise) and the idea of destroying enchantments isn't that relevant in a metagame that sees no enchantment theme decks. Even though you rejected the idea of buying shock lands due to price, I can assure you that having them in your deck can make a huge difference and is much-welcomed addition. if you're still not interested, consider some Caves of Koilos or Concealed Courtyard as a budget version.
I hope this helps you. I know mtggoldfish post a mardu version of aristocrats a while back so if you wanna be inspired, I recommend giving it a look.
