DemMeowsephs Yeah some prices have been going up like rockets, I guess there is more demand and people try to build more competitive decks.

  1. Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts is funny but yeah not really worth it in the deck.

  2. Keen Duelist is definitely a cheaper option that I will change eventually, it is too risky if you are playing vs high CMC decks.

  3. Gonti, Lord of Luxury is there just to slow/get information about the other decks, he have to go too yeah.

  4. Deathbringer Liege lets me tap and kill creatures everytime I make tokens with Felisa (Tokens are b/w) so I will leave it for now.

  5. Ashen Rider is not supposed to be casted at all but I combo her with Gift of Immortality so I can deny people. Also Gift works with Gray Merchant of Asphodel too.

I agree with the rest you just told me, specially with Coat of Arms , I will also change Blade of the Bloodchief for Sword of Truth and Justice

You are helping me a lot, I really appreciate it, If you prefer/want I can give you my discord user so we can talk through there anytime you want. Hope you have a nice day!

Glad to hear it! Yeah sheesh I didn't even realize it was that much I remember it being like fifteen bucks a little while back, that's kind of insane- but hmm. Oh holy crap the synergy with Teysa Karlov and Felisa is kind of crazy, just noticed that too. But here are some ones I would recommend cutting, though if they are fun/interesting to you or serve a purpose I missed, I could obviously be wrong:

Those are just some I see off the top of my head, if you look a little deep and really question how many times you play a card and utilize it, you might find some more! Sometimes its hard to cut a card you enjoy playing even if its fun so I'd recommend having a list of cards you can add for fun, and a list for effectiveness so you can play both sides! Hope this helps, I'm glad some suggestions are useful to you, and I'll let you know if I see any more possible cuts! Feel free to ask for any more assistance or if you have any questions I'd be glad to help.

Hey, you don't need massive help. This is a good first version especially if it's your first deck.

Some advice is try to reduce the mana curve. A 3.5 avg CMC is high, reducing this number will help gameplay. You want to prioritize the four, five or higher CMC cards. Keep the best ones for your strategy and cut the others. This deck building process is called streamlining or "cutting the fat". Adding more draw and ramp will help game play.

An example, the best fours drops here are: Teysa, Smothering Tithe, Pitiless Plunderer, Luminous Broodmoth, Elenda, Anointed Procession. Best five drops and six drops here: Sidisi, Thalisse, Wurmcoil Engine, Elspeth.

All the others not named could be cut to reduce the mana curve. A five drop that has a powerful die trigger is Archon of Justice , it's an upgrade for Liesa, Shroud of Dusk . Solemn Simulacrum is a fine four drop for ramp and a draw trigger when it dies, it's an upgrade for Kor Cartographer .


Reducing the mana curve means cutting high CMC cards for lower ones. Some examples:

  • Cutting Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , a seven drop, adding one drop Skullclamp . Skullclamp is one of the better cards with Teysa for a draw engine. It's die trigger draws four cards, it's very good with the 1/1 token theme and sac outlets.

  • Cutting Increasing Devotion , adding Viscera Seer , five drop for a one drop. You can create tokens from many other sources that have more interaction with Teysa than Devotion does. Seer is a one drop repeatable sac outlet who can also be repeatable filtering the top card of your library to help draws especially with Skullclamp.

  • Cutting Debtors' Knell , adding Phyrexian Reclamation . A seven drop that doesn't do anything the turn you play it for a one drop that's mana efficient repeatable creature recursion even at instant speed.

  • Adding more two drop mana rocks: Talisman of Hierarchy and Orzhov Signet to improve ramp by cutting some four drops such as Oketra the True and Ill-Gotten Inheritance . For your deck Oketra is an expensive price card that's a mana expensive source of tokens which doesn't have much interaction with Teysa.


You could complete two combos with Teysa by adding two cards: Reassembling Skeleton and Ministrant of Obligation .

If interested I offer more advice. Would you like more advice? Good luck with your deck.

Idk how to format it here but the other Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts artwork is a lot better than the one here.

I actually made an entire deck around this concept that works surprisingly well. Steve Argyle is a particularly great resource for this topic. In addition to Liliana of the Veil and Chosen of Markov  Flip, he's also done Deadly Allure , Guul Draz Vampire , Naya Battlemage , and Night Revelers . Other notable artists are Jason Chan ( Deathpact Angel , Fires of Undeath , Kiora, Master of the Depths , Mayael the Anima , Maul Splicer , Treasured Find ) and Volkan Baga ( Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Korozda Gorgon , Stoic Angel , Student of Warfare ). I ended up going with vampires + knights and some other cards I included are Hero of Bladehold , Knight Exemplar , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , and possibly the most ridiculous piece of Magic art ever created: Soul Collector . Some cards that came close to making the cut are Angel of Despair , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief , Knight of Dusk , Magister of Worth , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Vampire Hexmage , and Veteran Cavalier .

Other cards that I like (sorted by type) include Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch , Lyzolda, the Blood Witch , Kemba, Kha Regent , Sunspear Shikari , Elvish Champion , Gaea's Herald , Quirion Dryad , Nimbus Naiad , Dreamborn Muse , Mistral Singer , Shipwreck Singer , Siren of the Fanged Coast , Akroma, Angel of Wrath , Archangel of Strife , Basandra, Battle Seraph , Razia, Boros Archangel , and Ire Shaman . Looking at this list now, it's clear I've spent far too much time researching this subject.

KibaAlpha I agree, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts has too high CMC.

Another suggestion could be Wurmcoil Engine and it's dying trigger - delivers you addintional tokens and infinite combo-potential with Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar.

Thank you for your suggestion.

I can see Teysa, Orzhov Scion maybe finding a spot in the deck (not sure what to swap out with at this time) but Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts no chance. Her CMC alone is to high and her ability doesn't really fit with the deck.

If I could guarantee having Teysa Karlov on the field each time I sacrifice Kokusho, the Evening Star then he'd be in the deck.

What about the other Teysas... Teysa, Orzhov Scion or Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts.

Kokusho, the Evening Star would fit the theme also
