Okay! I was finally able to take a look at your deck. I have some suggestions that I would add, but first it would help to have a better understanding of what you want from the deck. I assume you're not against infinite combos since you've included Darkest Hour , but are you going for a traditional Aristocrats theme? Do you want to win as fast as possible or are you trying to go a more stax route?

I notice you have Reveillark , but I don't see Karmic Guide . I highly recommend you pair them together for an infinite sac loop but also to be able to get everything out of your graveyard with power 2 or less.

Nim Deathmantle is another that works great with Teysa. It can even go infinite with Ashnod's Altar and your commander if you sacrifice the creature you get from Teysa first so you have 4 to pay to the mantle.

Ogre Slumlord is excellent for providing sac fodder. He gets ridiculous pretty fast.

I would add Zulaport Cutthroat or the new Cruel Celebrant in addition to your Blood Artist to have additional means of draining your opponents. You could also go big with Kokusho, the Evening Star if you want to throw him into a recurring sac loop.

You've got Reassembling Skeleton which is great, but I'd also add Nether Traitor . He's so easy to abuse especially with Phyrexian Altar .

Smothering Abomination is great for card advantage, and if you can find room for him, you probably won't regret it. Dark Prophecy is probably the best in terms of card draw and would recommend you find room for it. I might also replace Burnished Hart with Solemn Simulacrum . He'll draw you cards and ramp you. Plus you can recur him to use him again.

Speaking of graveyard recursion, Phyrexian Reclamation is one of the best in terms of getting single creatures back to sac again especially if they're cheap to cast. Athreos, God of Passage is amazing for recursion as well. You might also try Trading Post for recurring your artifacts which can be essential to your strategies.

Martyr's Bond is great, but no Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos ? I'd run at least one of those in addition to Martyr.

In line with some stax play, Yosei, the Morning Star is an all-star (ha...) especially if you can bring him back and sac him again (say with Nim Deathmantle ).

As for more cards in your Maybeboard, Sun Titan is an excellent choice if you want to include him. Bojuka Bog is always handy when you're going against other graveyard decks, and Reliquary Tower is good to have on hand when you end up drawing half your deck, which can realistically happen if you run Darkest Hour . I would definitely keep Blasting Station but I'd probably cut Loxodon Warhammer and Felidar Sovereign . The way Teysa runs, they aren't the most useful cards in her arsenal. I've found Felidar just becomes the primary target when he comes out anyway.

Anyway...just a few thoughts. Like I said it would be helpful to know the direction you want to take the deck. Otherwise I'm just spitballing with cards I would personally use to run Teysa.

My pet card for this deck is Veilstone Amulet . It puts in work.

You are a little creature light especially if you want a lot of targets for mirrorwing and zada. I see what you are going for with Swiftblade Vindicator but I think there are better creatures for this deck.

Psychotic Fury can't target zada or mirrorwing, so it didn't make my list.

Seize the Day underperformed for me. Without a lot of vigilance creatures it ended up doing the same as giving one creature double strike

Other considerations for the deck, Akroan Crusader , Path to Exile (can be used on your own tokens to ramp you), Goblinslide , Intimidation Bolt , Guttersnipe , Electrostatic Field , Thermo-Alchemist , Sentinel Tower , Reliquary Tower

No worries, Byuante.

Westvale Abbey  Flip seems a bit win more in this deck and I think there are better token generation / outlet options to help enable your main win con of Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter . I almost prefer the added control offered by Sadistic Hypnotist .

Sword of the Animist seems a little out of place. I'd honestly replace that with Swiftfoot Boots to help with the protection package.

I see Reliquary Tower in the maybe board, but I would rather have Vedalken Orrery in here.

I'd prefer Merciless Eviction in place of one of the more targeted removals.

Just to throw it out there, Finale of Glory or Secure the Wastes could add a mana dump.

P.S. orzhov is not my strong suit :)

Also, I am calling that Explosion Zone may break standard. Mono-Blue Tempo, Mono-Red Burn, Mono-White Aggro/Azorius Aggro, and even a few other decks could easily be pushed out if it only destroyed 1 cmc nonlands, but because decks like Sultai base themselves on Wildgrowth Walker , Merfolk Branchwalker , and Hydroid Krasis (technically always 2 cmc on field), x=2 can shut them out too.

That land may also hurt control decks using Search for Azcanta  Flip as their main engine, and new decks using walkers that use the 4 drop slot religiously with Tamiyo, Jace, Chandra, or 3 drop slot with the newer walkers from RNA and WAR.

Not to mention a Bant Teferi, Hero of Dominaria / Wilderness Reclamation + Nexus of Fate deck that can now play Explosion Zon], tap it to put counters, untap it on endstep and hold an activation for any CMC the turn they play it over their opponent's head.


But is also is a Ratchet Bomb on a land, making it incredibly good for Red and Black EDH decks that need to destroy enchantments (or artifacts for Black EDH decks), or green decks that want creature removal. It will probably be the best utility land in colorless, IMO surpassing lands like Winding Canyons , Maze of Ith , Reliquary Tower , even Strip Mine / Wasteland etc. only being beaten by Bazaar of Baghdad for decks like The Gitrog Monster , Ancient Tomb or maybe Gemstone Caverns for fast combo decks in cEDH, and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale in stax lists.

Just sayin' it looks to be a 50 dollar staple in 5 years.

If the combo goes infinite and somehow doesn't win (like maybe an opponent casts Pay No Heed or some such), Reliquary Tower & Elixir of Immortality would be useful after drawing lots of cards.

Bearer of the Heavens I understand, Reliquary Tower not so much since my hand won't be that full most of the time. Thanks for the ideas though.

Hi MJS154,

Thank you for your input and apologies for the reply! Definitely happy with Sol Ring , Reliquary Tower and I love Academy Elite . Thinking a go-wide win condition with the likes of Rise from the Tides , Talrand, Sky Summoner and maybe Young Pyromancer .
