Nether Traitor Discussion

Thank you for the suggestions. It has given me a few things to consider. Funny story I originally had Nether Traitor in the deck but it started to be too clunky as I tested. I will have to test Tortured Existence and Necromancer's Stockpile. Also Sevinne's Reclamation and Scourge of Nel Toth are things I have not considered before and will need to play around with.

I recently made a Tormod deck partnering him with Esior, Wardwing Familiar. I was debating making it a while I was building it. If I did go Orzhov, it probably would've looked pretty similar to this! Well done!
I do have a few suggestions, though. Tortured Existence is a must. for a zombie token? At instant speed? Definitely an all star in my deck. I'd also recommend Daring Fiendbonder as a way to give a commander indestructible, Necromancer's Stockpile for it's multi-purpose value and Bloodghast, Nether Traitor and Scourge of Nel Toth as threats that will keep coming back over and over. Sevinne's Reclamation is probably also worth checking out.

Karazikar is my new favorite commander, he is SO MUCH FUN. He seems to be the most underrated commander of the set. Some cards I love in my list:
Nether Traitor is a super cheap and reliable way to always trigger your commander.

Brightwrath Carnival seems powerful when combined with Reassembling Skeleton or Nether Traitor . It acts as another Pitiless Plunderer type affect. Otherwise, it can help turbo out more creatures. I must've overlooked it since it isn't a death trigger. For what to swap out, I'd probably go with Stoneforge Mystic , Blight Mound , Spawning Pit or some other redundant effect in the deck. I'm not 100% sure yet, but I might add it in an update sometime soon. After all, it has a ton of combo power.

Nice Deck and i love this spooky Theme! :)
Maybe Iname, Death Aspect would be a good include.
I just drop a List of creepy Cards i found, maybe you can use some of them:
Thief of Hope not that scary, but would fit in with the spirit theme.

This list looks really fun! I like Legion's Landing Flip in Teysa. I've overlooked it in the past because of the land's lackluster activated ability, but I'm just now realizing how strong a 1 mana land-ramp card is in white. Since you can easily flip it in a deck with tokens, it seems strong.
I've been looking over your decklist, and I have a few suggestions about what to improve. First off, you're a little low on death triggers. Since this is Teysa's main strength, you may want to include more. If I counted right, you have 13 death triggers plus 2 more that aren't doubled by Teysa ( Luminous Broodmoth and Nether Traitor ). This makes Teysa herself more inconsistent. Just playing some more tokens-on-death cards like Ministrant of Obligation instead of Lingering Souls can go a long way to help facilitate her first ability as well as your cards that don't trigger off of tokens, like Pawn of Ulamog .
Second, I'd be careful about counting scry-effects like Temple of Silence , Woe Strider , or Path of Ancestry as card advantage. Scrying doesn't net you any cards. It's more like card filtering or card selection rather than card advantage. If you want lands that can provide card advantage, I'd go for Orzhov Basilica or Windbrisk Heights . Similarly, Verge Rangers don't ramp you, they just provide card advantage.

A bit of a long comment for you to chew some ideas over. I'm just going to throw out some cards that work for the aristocrats strategy that I think the commander would work well with. Then I'll give you some combos that could work here. Most of the combos rely heavily on white cards, so I think they are all pretty cheap. I'm sure there's a lot more that you could use, but these are the ones that come to my mind.
