I don't know how much you want but I'm going to recommend some cards as a Teysa, Orzhov Scion fan.

Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation is great in EDH to start the board over all over again. Merciless Eviction is something you should definitely keep in the deck by the way.

Anointed Procession is really good for doubling up on token effects. Requiem Angel and Field of Souls can be really nice too. Army of the Damned can provide a lot of bodies to work with. I've won with Army of the Damned and Maw of the Obzedat before. Storm Herd is an absolute beast too.

Two artifacts that you should consider are Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar . These can let you go infinite if you also get a Darkest Hour or a Painter's Servant . I have a Darkest Hour in mine, can't justify the price of the Painter's Servant yet. Either way both of those Altars are great with or without going infinite.

Illusionist's Bracers are great on Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Maw of the Obzedat should you include one as well. Three tokens to exile two creatures? Yes, please. In theory, if you have a Maw with the Bracers out and you Storm Herd at 40 life, you can sacrifice 5 of them and have 35 11/11 flying pegasus. Great card, I think it's underrated.

Also consider getting gravepact and/or Dictate of Erebos and maybe a Martyr's Bond too. You may not exile creatures with Teysa when they're out because of the way the stack works and if you sacrifice three creatures they'll sacrifice theirs before Teysa can exile it, but it's extremely good to keep your creatures out and have everyone else open.

i see that you heavily focus on gaining life in your deck, but don't utilise it a lot (except for having a ton of life). the only cards that benefit from you having/gaining much life are, as far as i can see Resplendent Angel , Ajani's Pridemate , Dawn of Hope , Storm Herd and Ajani, Strength of the Pride .

if you really want to play around gaining life/having a ton of it, i would recommend Sanguine Bond , Felidar Sovereign , Greed , Ambition's Cost , Night's Whisper , Defiant Bloodlord , Phyrexian Arena , Epicure of Blood and/or Exquisite Blood .

remember that life is a resource in this game. just gaining a lot of it makes it harder for you to lose the game, yes, but you should also trie to use it to win the game.

if you are looking for any other kind of inspiration, feel free to check out my kaalia deck:

One of my favorite board wipes in a token based deck is Martial Coup because you can either get 4 dudes for 6 mana which is eh or you can get 5+ and increasing starting at 7 with a board wipe.

Things like Ashen Rider , Archon of Justice , and Angel of Despair can work really well in any WB deck but especially when you are recovering them from the graveyard and wanting them to die anyway.

Would you also consider a Swords to Plowshares ? It's simply strong with no additional costs for 1 mana and who cares that they gain some life unless it's hundreds? And even then it could be hundreds that aren't killing you. Also, since you have the infinite combo for Teysa with Darkest Hour, you could also consider Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate for a finisher with that mana. I win with Debt without even going infinite. Storm Herd is also a heavy hitter.

wereotter: That's why I'm aiming for Combo pieces moreso than anything else. Week 3 and 4 are basically me getting redundancy into place, and some protection. I just have to survive long enough to go off.

Preview for next update on this - I Aftermath Refuse / Cooperate on Storm Herd , and enjoy my new army just long enough for the next player to play Languish . :sigh:

Your lands are a bit funky... You really only need around 36 lands for something like this, and you have plains as the majority of basics when white is the smallest portion of your deck. I would switch up basics so you have 10 Island s, 4 Plains , and 6 Mountain s. Aside from that to bring it to 100 cards I'd cut stuff like Storm Herd , Clone Legion and Sublime Exhalation . They're good cards but really not worth the mana cost. Some things that didn't seem like they really fit with the theme of the deck are Azor, the Lawbringer , and Pristine Skywise . I could be reading the deck completely wrong but this is just my two cents, take it with a grain of salt as I'm still relatively new to building decks. Sorry for the wall of text as well.

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.
