Teysa Karlov

Legendary Creature — Human Advisor

If a creature dying causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens enter the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

Creature tokens you control have vigilance and lifelink.

Last_Laugh on Death by Tokens

2 months ago

As the first poster said, you're trying to take the deck in too many different directions. You're going Aristocrats but have cards for treasure strats like Revel in Riches and Lotho as well as aggro stuff like Cathar's Crusade and Shadrix.

You're honestly better off with Teysa Karlov in the Command Zone to lean even harder into the Aristocrats theme with Kambal in the 99.

Last_Laugh on New hubs to be added

3 months ago

legendofa re: double triggers. None of what you listed is a trigger. I'm talking Isshin, Two Heavens as One, Teysa Karlov, Felix Five-Boots, Yarok, the Desecrated, Gandalf the White, Drivnod, Carnage Dominus, Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines, etc.

I guess to me a hub describes a decks main focuses and when I'm unable to describe my deck this way then the available hubs might be getting too narrow.

Anyways, cheers and sorry for the bad timing... it didn't even click I tossed this at ya on a prerelease weekend.

Yes, Teysa doubles creatures own "dies" triggers. First Oracle ruling on Teysa Karlov reads:

Teysa affects a creature's own “when this creature dies” triggered abilities as well as other triggered abilities that trigger when that creature dies. Such triggered abilities start with “when” or “whenever.”

I know that Teysa Karlov's static ability will double the triggered abilities of cards such as Dark Prophecy or Moldervine Reclamation, but will her ability also double the triggered ability of Wurmcoil Engine or similar cards?

Afterlife Insurance may very well be the pièce de résistance for every Teysa Karlov pilot from the moment it's released until the sun burns out.

FourDoughnut on Blood Bending - Awaken the Avatar

Nice deck! I started brewing AtBA almost immediately after seeing it spoiled and have been working on the deck making improvements/changes over time, and it is easily my favourite deck at the moment. One thing that I do differently with mine is focus more on low cost creatures that make tokens on ETB, things like Weaponcraft Enthusiast & Sengir Autocrat ideally as they make 2-3 tokens to get that first or second Blood Avatar cast, You're Confronted by Robbers is great also because it's an instant, Waylay is the cheapest way to make 3 tokens on your turn. Because of this I also run all the good reanimator spells, and since that includes Animate Dead I also run Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward, which on it's own is also good, especially if you run a lot of mana rocks. I chose not to run Worldgorger Dragon for the infinite mana combo as it isn't good on its own, where Abdel Adrian is. Since you run Fury Storm I would consider running Storm-Kiln Artist for the combo potential, as he is also good for ramping off of instants/sorceries and synergizes with the toke doublers (get Mondrak out of the sideboard and into the 99). It also combos with Chain of Smog for infinite mana if you're into that (I'm not). Academy Rector is awesome for cheating in Anointed Procession if you're about to make tokens or City on Fire if you already have Blood Avatar(s). Roaming Throne from Lost Caverns of Ixilan is also good for the same reasons Isshin is, but it has Ward 2 and is colourless. I also run most of the lower cost extra combat cards to try to maximize the attack triggers, Goblin Goliath has been an (expensive) all-star. Any planeswalker with + ability that make tokens are also great.

There are so many different things you could focus on with this deck I find it hard just to narrow it down to the gameplan you're after, which is one of the things I love about it. The one thing my deck is lacking now is Lifelink, I'm looking at Teysa Karlov because vigilance is great too, but I don't focus too much on death triggers, so Whip of Erebos may take the spot.

Excited to see future updates on this! Will post my decklist eventually and link it here, interested to see your comments.

KorandAngels on Teysa Karlov’s Double D's

I was originally going to doubt the title, because you can't really see her body shape through her clothes on Teysa Karlov's art, and on Teysa, Orzhov Scion she actually looks pretty small, but then I saw her on Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts and there's no doubt any more.

What the fuck am I doing?

Crow_Umbra on Commanders that can take advanmtage …

You could always go the classic Aristocrats route with Teysa Karlov. She is one of, if not, the most popular Aristocrats commanders. She tends to helm decks that make lots of creature tokens, and sacrificing them for additional value. Teysa will also double up your triggers from Meathook.

You could also put The Meathook Massacre into a deck that has some kind of sub-theme that cares about life gain/life loss. Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose could be the commander or in the 99 for something like this.

I know you mentioned Mardu in your description, but are there other colors that you interested in as a support? Black adjacent strategies have plenty to work with in regards to Aristocrats and Life manipulation.
