Thanks RNR, I had considered Thousand (along with Illusionist's Bracers ), but there is little else that interacts with it in the deck, and I have quite a few ways to protect Her (or Haste) + Reconnaissance which is better for the deck overall. Whip would be excellent for recurring Static abilities on Knight Lords + is better "All Lifelink" than Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord , so will consider! (maybe over Athreos? ;P )

I don't know how much you want but I'm going to recommend some cards as a Teysa, Orzhov Scion fan.

Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation is great in EDH to start the board over all over again. Merciless Eviction is something you should definitely keep in the deck by the way.

Anointed Procession is really good for doubling up on token effects. Requiem Angel and Field of Souls can be really nice too. Army of the Damned can provide a lot of bodies to work with. I've won with Army of the Damned and Maw of the Obzedat before. Storm Herd is an absolute beast too.

Two artifacts that you should consider are Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar . These can let you go infinite if you also get a Darkest Hour or a Painter's Servant . I have a Darkest Hour in mine, can't justify the price of the Painter's Servant yet. Either way both of those Altars are great with or without going infinite.

Illusionist's Bracers are great on Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Maw of the Obzedat should you include one as well. Three tokens to exile two creatures? Yes, please. In theory, if you have a Maw with the Bracers out and you Storm Herd at 40 life, you can sacrifice 5 of them and have 35 11/11 flying pegasus. Great card, I think it's underrated.

Also consider getting gravepact and/or Dictate of Erebos and maybe a Martyr's Bond too. You may not exile creatures with Teysa when they're out because of the way the stack works and if you sacrifice three creatures they'll sacrifice theirs before Teysa can exile it, but it's extremely good to keep your creatures out and have everyone else open.

Imperial Recruiter , Walking Ballista , Wurmcoil Engine , Illusionist's Bracers , Kuldotha Forgemaster and Throne of Geth . Your other proliferation costs too much when you don't have infinite mana, bracers will make things like welder, forgemaster, and ravager pop off more effectively, and recruiter will fetch 2/3 of those. Wurmcoil is just too much value to not have.

If you want more bang for your buck, add in Illusionist's Bracers . Don't exile them with a cage counter on it, but instead cast and equip it onto her.

Then, when you activate TCV, you get 2x activations out of it for the price of .

Update: Got the OK for Illusionist's Bracers as it falls into the same category as Ashnod's Altar : difficult to tutor and protect. Great suggestion, SmokeyMcPot! I removed Wear / Tear , as I prefer Krosan Grip for spot artifact/enchantment removal.

Have you considered including Illusionist's Bracers or Unbound Flourishing ? Both of those can go infinite with Marath.
