Soul Warden Discussion

squadcarxmar on Teysa, Orzhov Scion: life and death

I'd trade out Exsanguinate and put in a Debt to the Deathless . I run it over Exsanguinate in my Teysa because I don't mainboard my Darkest Hour and it helps me close out games still. So even if your Darkest Hour is getting countered/exiled/whatever you can have an easier time winning with that. If you slap a Illusionist's Bracers on your Vizkopa Guildmage it makes this even more insane. And Bracers is also already good on Teysa trading 3 tokens for 2 creatures rather than 1. Say you spend 7 mana on Debt, 3 on Vizkopa with Bracers, with 3 opponents in the game. That's 3 on Debt for 6 life but you'll gain 18 then Vizkopa activates twice and they lose 36. That's 42 life loss to each opponent. It can also work well whenever you gain a lot of life in a turn like Soul Warden and a token dump.

I would run Carnival of Souls since you already have Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant and if both are out, it's free black mana whenever creatures hit.
I'd trade a boardwipe for Merciless Eviction because it can handle indestructible and hexproof creatures with exile. The only downside is worrying about a counterspell. Also, maybe Storm Herd in place of Increasing Devotion ? I don't know how fast the decks you play against are but if you mana ramp enough Storm Herd usually has more value. Also consider Black Market for mana ramp in a Teysa deck.

I know I'm suggesting a lot but wanted you to consider some of your options, I know some of my suggestions don't really have something directly to take out with them. This deck seems very good and competitive I'd say.

Genesis Chamber + Felidar Guardian + Felidar Guardian for infinite Myr Tokens

Replace Genesis Chamber with Valor in Akros for infinite +1/+1 tokens

Replace Genesis Chamber with Soul Warden or a card with the same effect to get infinite life

You can replace one Felidar Guardian with Restoration Angel or Wispweaver Angel

You can replace both Felidar Guardian with Wispweaver Angel

This budget Deck of mine puts these all into action Sub $30 Flickering Frenzy

All these work in a single color (white), so its a little easier to pull of, as long as you have the mana and can survive till then.

Whitehamma on Black/White Token Deck

I only see a couple of black cards. Do you want it to be black and white or just white? I would figure that out first. If black and white....

Suture Priest instead of Soul Warden you are going to be the one making creatures you don't need them to put creatures in the field to gain life, but punishing them for casting creatures imo is better. Plus it works with Exquisite Blood which i would also get Sanguine Bond like someone else mentioned.... because its infinite. Also Blood Seeker , and Blood Artist if you plan on wiping their creatures or even yours.

If the deck is budget and can't afford fetch lands, Windswept Heath is cheaper than all the fetch lands and can fetch your plains, which includes the shock lands. For mana base you could get rid of the cards that say land and grab Plains/Swamp for example Godless Shrine . There is also the lands that enter and gain you life.

I would include Anointed Procession in any white token deck, especially since it makes Cathars' Crusade tick

maybe Divine Visitation ?

I appologize for not knowing some of the names. I am a green player, I could tell you all sorts of cards if you were green white, but thats not your color scheme

You may want to have Felidar Guardian and/or Wispweaver Angel alongside one of Soul Warden , Genesis Chamber , or Valor in Akros for a late game infinite combo by causing two instaflickers to target each other infinitely, causing them to enter the battlefield infinitely, prompting such abilities.

I would recommend Felidar Guardian as it appears to be able to go infinite with your commander in flickering each other, and if you add some cards that get benefits whenever something else enters the battlefield, like Genesis Chamber , Soul Warden , or Valor in Akros , you could basically just win the game on the spot.

A soul sister deck would give your friend a bit of trouble. If he's using Krovikan Mist , he's got a pretty heavy creature list. Could use more info on his playstyle. I wager he's going straight up aggro using dudes like Phantasmal Bear , Vapor Snag and Phantasmal Dragon but I could also see him doing something more control-like with Riftwing Cloudskate , Draining Whelk , meloku the cloud mirror and Counterspell since it sounds like he's pretty annoying.

A mid-range life gaining deck sounds like it will consistently give you more turns to play bigger threats and overall be winning more games. Blue has a lot of problem solving cards so I wouldn't rely on a single card to win you a game, especially if it can get countered. I'd lean more to redundancy and playing relevant cards.

Strategies that use creatures like Soul Warden , Thragtusk or making a deck around that new card Bishop of Wings since angels can block flyers or Suture Priest or Gray Merchant of Asphodel

I'm a little surprised you're not running Aetherflux Reservoir

Also, I think you'll gain more life in the long run with Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant than you will with Martyr of Sands and Children of Korlis

Neat deck!

You could really use Eladamri's Call so you can pull out Crested Sunmare as its one of your best creatures. And because the mare triggers at the end of each endstep, maybe Soul Warden as it will likely gain you life on every turn [same reason you're playing Sun Droplet I guess].

You may want Exotic Orchard for additional color fixing. Fortunately with more coming out in C19 decks they should get even cheaper soon.

With access to red, Shared Animosity could add some more punch.
