Open the Armory Discussion
10 hours ago
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:
- Doomed Traveler
- Open the Armory: tutor for Skullclamp.
- Tithe Taker
- Skirsdag High Priest: repeatable 5/5 Demons, morbid can trigger on any player's turn even when an opponent's creature dies.
- Dark Ritual
- Dreadhorde Invasion
Cards to consider cutting for these:
- Martial Coup
- Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder: his token making ability is better in mono black or Rakdos; it's not needed when playing white.
- Vindictive Vampire: the worst aristocrat here.
- Smothering Abomination: doesn't trigger when a creature dies only when a creature is saced, there's better repeatable draw options/sac outlets here.
- Black Market: Smothering Tithe is better ramp.
- Sifter of Skulls: Pitiless Plunderer and Pawn of Ulamog are better.
- Choose one, cut the other, from Butcher of Malakir or Martyr's Bond.
Good luck with your deck.

Ok i've been thinking, Open the Armory (fetches: Animate Dead or Dance of the Dead) is better than Steelshaper's Gift (only Lightning Greaves), the issue is CMC2, for that I get Demonic Tutor or Tainted Pact or Diabolic Intent.
I dunno if you follow the Kaalia discord, but Kaalia of the Vast finished in the top-4 of 118 player cEDH tourney, Okoberfest, there's a decklist in the article (moxfield). I'm going to run a side-by-side differential, but notably it runs Ad Nauseam and Dualcaster Mage combos instead of like Dockside Extortionist combos (which I feel Corpse Dance isn't good until mid-range gameplay).

Another suggestion you may have already considered or had suggested to you... Thoughts on Imperial Recruiter?

Open the Armory is another tutor for an equipment that is easy enough to pick up.
Ignite the Future is a card I've been testing out that has been pretty good for card draw and some free cards in the late game.
Sun Titan is an amazing creature since it will let you get your smaller things back from your graveyard and can even be ramp with getting lands back from the yard like your Evolving Wilds or a Myriad Landscape also can help you draw since you won't need to worry about sacing the Mind Stone
Tome of Legends is pretty good with building the counters on it for card draw at least getting you some extra cards over the course of the game.
Duelist's Heritage is amazing since it is a cheap enchantment that will give two of your creatures double strike.
Blackblade Reforged is an equipment that will probably let Aurelia on her own to start taking out players.

Hey, nice semi budget version of Arahbo.
King of the Pride + Elemental Bond is an interaction for a lot of repeatable draw with Cats. The +2 of power is applied to Cats when they ETB therefore with King any Cat here who ETB will trigger Bond. Bond triggers when tokens are created and with King a 1/1 Cat token ETB as a 3/2 Cat which triggers Bond to draw.
This interaction is good with equipped Kemba, Kha Regent, Felidar Retreat, Brimaz, King of Oreskos or White Sun's Zenith. Many Cats have 2 power which means with any anthem such as Kaheera, the Orphanguard they get 3 power which triggers Bond. Garruk's Uprising is another option and trample is nice, but Cats consistently having 4 power when they ETB is more difficult then 3 power.
Consider more tutors to get a Cat, an equipment, an enchantment?
Several Cats have double strike including Raksha Golden Cub who can give all Cats the ability, but he's 7 mana. Giving any Cat the ability for a lower mana cost is helpful since Arahbo is a repeatable pump right away.
With double strike a creature who has an effect that happens when it does combat damage to a player can potentially trigger it twice. Can take real advantage of this with Feline Sovereign and Bloodforged Battle-Axe. Other ways to use this are too draw cards with Mask of Memory, Keeper of Fables, Hunter's Insight.
Good luck with your deck.

Hiya! A few notable exclusions I see. Fervent Champion and Kazuul's Toll Collector are both excellent holders of equipment.\ Dowsing Dagger Flip and Mask of Memory are both equipment that provide a lot of value when held. Sunforger is arguably the best Boros card in EDH. It is a must as it provides a tutor-able piece of equipment that can get you to answers. Speaking of tutors, Open the Armory is still cheap. Steelshaper's Gift has unfortunately gotten more expensive but is the best equipment tutor. Next is removal. Akiri synergizes with white's wrath effects really well since she can make those board wipes one-sided. I suggest running those Wrath of God and Day of Judgment effects. Additionally, Winds of Abandon is a recent piece of white removal printed that I find to be as much of an auto-include in white decks as Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile. Finally, if you've been liking Flawless Maneuver then I highly suggest Deflecting Swat. This card is amazing and is excellent when your general only costs 3 mana.

I really like Akiri and your build of her. Couple suggestions:
Haktos the Unscarred is a bit of a nonbo as protection means you can't equip him unless the cmc is allowed.
I didn't see Fervent Champion in your list and he is honestly the best creature possible for this deck.

Things that synergize with white's effects like counters with Mindless Automaton, lifegain with Well of Lost Dreams, and tokens or small dudes with Skullclamp, that or Sword of Fire and Ice for equipment strategies, Smuggler's Copter and Bonders' Enclave for other strategies.
And in white, after looking it up for Omniscience_is_life, here is my new, semi-educated package:
Land Tax, Mangara, the Diplomat, Alms Collector, Weathered Wayfarer, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Sram, Senior Edificer, Stonehewer Giant, Dawn of Hope, Puresteel Paladin, Mentor of the Meek, Bygone Bishop, Luminarch Ascension, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Sun Titan, Sevinne's Reclamation, Ranger of Eos, and Castle Ardenvale
Not to mention tutors being Weathered Wayfarer/Ranger of Eos being tutors, alongside Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Recruiter of the Guard, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Academy Rector, Arena Rector, Call the Gatewatch, Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Heliod's Pilgrim, Quest for the Holy Relic, Three Dreams, Boonweaver Giant, Auratouched Mage, Djeru, With Eyes Open, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Thalia's Lancers, Totem-Guide Hartebeest, Relic Seeker, Priest of the Wakening Sun, Forerunner of the Legion, Ignite the Beacon, Plea for Guidance, Kithkin Harbinger, etc.
Oh, and there is more, just look!
