rjphilla I opted for Return to the Ranks instead since most of the decks value comes from 2 drops but then all the sac fodder is in the 1 drop slot. You can play Rally the Ancestors if you want its just personal preference. The Athreos, God of Passage will help mitigate how much goes into the grave so Return to the Ranks wont be so costly, its also protected from all kinds of creature removal since you can sac your way below 7 devotion and target all the damage at them for trying.

It's alright! I would definitely play more disruption. The longer games go with this deck, the better; while there are some good high cmc creatures with death triggers, ramping into those will make less value in the long run than playing smaller creatures (quantity over quality in this case).

Looking online, most Teysa decks play less lands with a lower overall cmc, have sweepers, and only have Requiem Angel and Yosei as the top of their curve. That speaks for itself, right?

If you feel that you need a payoff for Ashnod's Altar and the other mana sac artifact, Rally the Ancestors is a pretty good one. Lots of combo kill situations with it.

Fair enough. I've never found the afterlife mechanic all that powerful in commander. Usually I like to be combo'ing with death triggers and recursion with cards like Faith's Reward , Thrilling Encore , Command the Dreadhorde , or Rally the Ancestors . Hope the deck finds you well.

FullmetalWes: I am in the process of building it, but the budget is proving difficult. I looks like it has potential, but I want to bring it to an event to see how it performs. I can see it falling apart to graveyard postboard as it is, but lords could replace Rally the Ancestors and combo cards pushing full aggro. Thanks for the upvote!

Don't you think Allies with a backup Rally the Ancestors -combokill would be better on such a tight budget than humans?

i think the other things o change with the addition of white mana is probably the SB option, as white has some of the most powerful hate cards in the game the ones that come to mind are Anguished Unmaking Stony Silence Path to Exile Kambal, Consul of Allocation Runed Halo Fragmentize

and if your feeling brave Auriok Champion (as in a creture heavy deck like zombies, this card just wins games against burn and deathshadow if it resolves. (its also pretty tight against jund to)

it also provides access to mass reanimation spells like Rally the Ancestors if you wanted to try a more aristocats style strategy

Whenever I feel like one of my decks is slow or clunky, I go through this mental process.

Firstly, how is your mana cost? 3.1 isn't bad, but there are a few high mana cost cards that aren't impactful enough. Debtors' Knell is a seven drop that demands a full turn cycle before it does the same job as Animate Dead . Why not Rally the Ancestors or Return to the Ranks ? Even Whip of Erebos or Seance would be good here.

Too costly for their impact:

I will type the other process in another comment. Give me but a moment.
