TDemers on No Time to Die Teysa

7 months ago

Thanks for the suggestions KibaAlpha, much appreciated!

I decided not to run too many one-use spells like Dark Ritual , Bubbling Muck and Lotus Petal and keep the deck more midrange. I'll get a better feel for the need to add aggressive ramp after I get more playtesting under my belt.

I just removed Endless Cockroaches and Pious Evangel  Flip, will consider re-adding if I find myself missing having creatures to play/sac and/or more aristocrats.

Not a big fan of Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Malevolent Awakening , I struggle to see what I would remove in their place that would improve the deck.

Greed I like, I really hesitated removing Dark Prophecy as I am concerned it could easily kill me if I don't draw a Vindicate . ( Midnight Reaper is much better since I can simply sac him if needed).

I saw your Teysa deck when I was looking around for ideas early on, great work and thanks again.

KibaAlpha on Karlove One Another

Lets look at what we should be adding,

Bontu the Glorified , Bontu's Monument , Malevolent Awakening

I'd remove Revel in Riches . You really do want to be able to play that at flash speed to get your value from it.

Phyrexian Arena There is better card draw you can get.

Ghostly Prison With death triggers there are ways to remove your opponents creatures rather then worry about making them pay 2 mana per to attack.

Anointed Procession you can do without. Creatures that die and create tokens will create double the tokens from Teysa Karlov so she herself is like Anointed Procession .

I'd lose the four "Sorcery" cards you have. If anything I'd replace Black Sun's Zenith with Toxic Deluge .

Sword of the Animist . Only good if you are attacking a lot.

Skullclamp That one can go either way. I opted to remove it from my build. I found better options.

Blade of the Bloodchief

Thrilling Encore If done right you won't need your opponents creatures.

Doomblade and Fatal Push Focus on using Dictate of Erebos , Grave Pact
