You're welcome :)

I really like the nastiness going on here, I guess I'll come up with more ideas soon. In the mean time:

Long-Forgotten Gohei

Blinking Spirit is a must-include basically.

Drogskol Cavalry

Forbidding Spirit

Ghost Tactician

Hanged Executioner

Hollowhenge Spirit

Hundred-Talon Kami

Jeweled Spirit is pretty sick with Martyr's Bond.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Deathmonicon - Teysa Karlov Aristocrats EDH

Change log after not investing in this list in a while:

-1 Ashen Rider +1 Path to Exile

-1 Boreas Charger +1 Cruel Celebrant

-1 Sadistic Hypnotist +1 Altar of Dementia

In terms of creature swaps, Ashen Rider is incredibly strong and a hard cut, but I’d rather have the cheap efficiency of Path. Archon of Justice costs less and is about as good.

Boreas Charger has always kinda sucked even if I get double death triggers, so in goes Celebrant as an additional wincon.

Sadistic Hypnotist is pretty good, but Altar costs less, can sacrifice at instant speed, and is a wincon.

-1 Worn Powerstone +1 Talisman of Hierarchy

Just an upgrade to a mana rock. I’d rather curve into Teysa on turn two than have an extra colorless mana a turn later.

-1 Dark Prophecy +1 Village Rites

-1 Martyr's Bond +1 Bastion of Remembrance

This list really badly needed a way to just draw cards instantly; we have plenty of card draw value engines. I decided Dark Prophecy competed with Necro for its slot and got the cut.

Martyrs Bond I never really saw while playing, but I’d rather have another drain effect than something that stalls the game.

-1 Sorin, Lord of Innistrad +1 Grim Tutor

Sorry, foil original print Sorin, he’s a little slow to generate tokens for his mana cost. The deck needed a fourth tutor to more consistently pull together its combos anyway, and Grim is a spicy recent reprint.

-1 Orzhov Guildgate +1 Brightclimb Pathway  Flip

-1 Swamp +1 Silent Clearing

And just some upgrades in the manabase. Overall, can’t wait to see how this list can perform even better!

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. This is a good budget version of Teysa and you have several nice cards.

Some lower CMC cards within the budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting for these:

Good luck with your deck.

KuzcosPoison on Orah Aristocrats Combo

Looks like a cool deck, Orah seems like the commander clerics has been looking for for a long time. Combos are interesting, would suggest leaning into a couple of the more concise ones while cutting out any cards that would be dead outside of them like Shuriken. Also your lifegain combos become much more deadly with a Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose so would recommend those along with a Blood Artist type effect or two. Celestial Gatekeeper seems like an odd choice, not sure if it's worth. If you want the body then Butcher is very good but I find that Martyr's Bond does a lot of work for aristocrats. Also Burnt Offering is fun ramp but Culling the Weak might be better value since there's not a ton of creatures above 5 mana in there. This is definitely a meta call too but with undying combos and Mikeaus in there, a Solemnity might be worth along with some light lifegain tax like Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Anyway, hope that helps

Nice job!

Looks like we got a little over-excited and have 2 Field of Souls in the list too. No problem, there's a whole bunch of goodies we can put in instead. Just Ikoria, the most recent set, had amazing cards like Bastion of Remembrance, Luminous Broodmoth, Garrison Cat, Dire Tactics, and Serrated Scorpion.

A few organizational things...feel free to simplify it down even further if you'd like. You can put all lands in one category, all removal (exile, board clear...think anything that interacts with something an opponent has that is a problem) in one (this would be a good place for your Leonin Relic-Warder. Also, double check your category for Martyr's Bond :P However helps you think about the deck best.

One thing you could use is more ramp in the early game...a few rocks (since only green gets the land-based stuff and the mana dorks). Orzhov Keyrune, Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy, or maybe a few fetch creatures such as Knight of the White Orchid, or Boreas Charger. Otherwise, I think we just need to test.

Already run enough Blood Artist effects that Bastion seems unnecessary. I like that it's harder for your opp's to deal with, but I dislike that it's a bit harder to recur it. Mothra's great value but you need to run Solemnity to combo off with her. I'd prefer both in a more stax enchantment focused build with Academy Rector/Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos/Martyr's Bond

Also, thanks I guess because I am taking some suggestions from your decklist to add to my Teysa Karlov deck, Teysa's Cheery Sacrifice. :-)
