Ministrant of Obligation Discussion

Hey, think about how you can get more value out of Teysa with the token strategy?
I'll give you four card examples within the budget to mull over:
- Doomed Traveler : dies ability.
- Ministrant of Obligation : dies ability.
- Luminarch Ascension : repeatable source of tokens.
- Spawning Pit : sac outlet, repeatable source of tokens.
I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Tips. If you have recommendations I think I'd like something which can recover some value if all the spirits get taken out or if I'm ending up suiciding some lifelink tokens for Dawn of Hope . I basically added Impassioned Orator originally because opponents playing Ethereal Absolution was giving me head-aches and at least allowed me to throw Ministrant of Obligation onto the board for a minimum of 3x card-draw events off Dawn of Hope as they all come onto the board and immediately die while waiting for a Conclave Tribunal or something. Rising Populace is at least a cheap option, and the synergy with Teysa Karlov is nice but I'm hesitant.

canderson107 there's nothing wrong with that! It's a great card. I have been on the fence about Altar of Dementia but I already have Pitiless Plunderer and Reassembling Skeleton so I might as well try and fit it! Yeah yours is very token heavy. I like that afterlife mechanic. Feels great when you chop a Ministrant of Obligation with teysa and Divine Visitation out and net 4 Angels and tons of triggers.

FullmetalWes I figured I could cut out Hunted Witness and just have playsets of Mentor of the Meek for more consistent card draw Ministrant of Obligation for better Afterlife and Orzhov Enforcer for more blockers with Deathtouch, but I haven't gotten around to playtesting it just yet.

If you really want an indestructible type effect, you'd probably be better off going for Unbreakable Formation than Sheltering Light and Adamant Will as it protects all your creatures and can give them a buff and a decent attack step if you use if offensively instead of defensively.
I'd also personally run more cards with afterlife or an afterlife-type effect, like Orzhov Enforcer and Ministrant of Obligation so you can get extra value when those creatures die. Then you have even more creatures to lose for even more value.
Also if you want a higher end threat, Seraph of the Scales would be another good inclusion as its a threatening body on its own and if it dies you still get some value from it.
I've been quite interested in building a deck like this one, this might be the inspiration I need to actually build it.

I love Teysa decks! My reccomendation is to replace some of the token generating spells with creatures that generate tokens on death triggers. Cards like Orzhov Enforcer , Ministrant of Obligation and Doomed Traveler , really anything cheap with the Afterlife keyword. I would also recommend some cards that get you cards back from the graveyard, Whisper, Blood Liturgist is great for this as she also functions as a sacrifice outlet for you and Dutiful Attendant is great as it's triger doubles with your commander.

Genesis26 I dare say Priest of the Forgotten Gods is the best sacrifice outlet we have in standard right now. It's the go-to turn 2 play BECAUSE it's summoning sick, so it's got to be played as early as possible. Besides, even if it didn't have summoning sickness there's nothing to sac on turn 2. On turn three, we can follow the priest up with another expendable creature body ( Ministrant of Obligation is ideal) and sac it + the turn one play for value. This, however may not even be the ideal play, since we really don't even want to start saccing things in the early game; it's better to wait till the mid-game for more value with Teysa or Visitation.
