Parun of Golgari was Svogthir, a Lich Elf.
Svogthir, Devkarin Lich
Legendary Creature - Zombie Elf
As long as Svogthir, Devkarin is in your graveyard, if your would draw a card, Dredge Svogthir instead.
Sacrifice two other creatures: Regenerate Svogthir, Devkarin Lich.
At the beginning of your endstep, if you control no other creatures, transform Svogthir, Devkarin Lich.
Svogthir, Lich Transcendant
Legendary Planeswalker - Svogthir
+1: Return target card from your graveyard to your hand, Dredge 2.
0: Create a 1/1 black and green Plant Zombie creature token with "Exile a creature card in your graveyard: put a +1/+1 counter on this creature."
-5: Return target creature from a graveyard to the battlefield under your control.
Okay, so the Paruns left are:
- : Obzedat, Ghost Council/Ghost Council of Orzhova(Incl. Karlov, Enezesku, Fautomni, Vuliev, and Xil Xaxosz)
- : Mat'Selesnya (Voiced by Trostani, Selesnya's Voice/Trostani Discordant
- : Szadek, Lord of Secrets
- : The First Simic (Yeah, if you have a better name go with it, but idk?)
- : Cisarzim, the Lord of Chaos (Seems to have been a cyclops)
- : Rakdos the Defiler/Rakdos, Lord of Riots//Rakdos, the Showstopper

Athreos, God of Passage, is an excellent choice to punish your opponents or recur your dudes. This would be a more creature based deck.
Obzedat, Ghost Council is always a solid pick, but doesn’t do much.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening to all my fellow wizards around the world. My name is Viera, and right now I had recently uploaded my Lemures Citadel Orzhov Control list. Previously, I had posted help regarding Dead Guy Ale, which I had discarded and have completed a grindy attritional-style control list featuring two combos: Bolas's Top and Sickening Grace. The whole idea is to act as a disruptive deck features hand disruption, spot removal and wraths and combo off.
The link below will provide a rough draft of my list, and will love any constructive criticism as to how to make my deck better. Oh! My commander is Obzedat, Ghost Council, a mascot this deck is themed after.

ShadowAblaze, thanks for the comment. I am very aware of all of those cards; they have all been left out deliberately, for different reasons (except Teysa, who is actually my commander-- you seem to have overlooked her). I'll address them individually:
Blood Baron of Vizkopa - At 5 mana, with no real synergy with the rest of the deck, and no immediate impact on the board state, he is not viable in this build.
Immortal Servitude - This is a fantastic card, and I will actually probably put a copy in. I just need to work on finding a copy. Unfortunately, it's usually going to be a strictly worse Rally the Ancestors, but casting it for X=2 should usually yield good results.
Obzedat, Ghost Council - This is another creature which offers no synergy with the rest of the deck's aristocrat goals. I will probably make a separate deck for the Ghost Council in the future.
Obzedat's Aid - I love this card, and I have tried to make it work so many times, but it is unfortunately too slow, most of the time. This card lives in my maybeboard.
Karlov of the Ghost Council - This is a very strong card, but again, it lacks any meaningful synergy with the deck. The best I get from Karlov is a bunch of triggers from my Lifelink tokens, but usually Karlov ends up being a "win-more" card. He, too, lives in my maybe-board.
Teysa Karlov - This is literally the commander of the deck. I'm not sure why you think she's not in here, lmfao.
Kaya's Guile - I have playtested this card, and I have found that more often than not it under-performs. It may find its way back into the deck as my meta shifts, but more often than not it's not worth playing, for me.
Debt to the Deathless - This has been one of my favorite cards since its release. It simply is not well suited to this deck, however. More often than not, it simply gets countered, and even if it didn't, it does nothing to support the aristocrats strategy of this deck. The current build usually does not accelerate to the amount of mana required to make this card viable.
High Priest of Penance - This is another one of my all-time favorite Magic cards, and nearly made the cut, but since I do not have any way of dealing damage to him on my own, he more often than not ends up sitting in play and doing nothing until the board gets wiped. He's another one of those cards that lives in my maybe-board, and may one day be added to the roster-- but for now, he doesn't have the synergy required to make it work.

No, because it left. Same with gaining control like with Agent of Treachery.
That's why Obzedat, Ghost Council includes Haste, making him the only Advisor with haste, as well as the only Orzhov card with haste.

Kaya's Guile - excellent edict and graveyard hose
Debt to the Deathless - potential win con
High Priest of Penance - can be solid removal
