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.

Creature tokens you control have vigilance and lifelink.

Masterful Update: Commander over the weekend went great! We had 5 people, so we were actually playing secret partner (obviously this is not a great "partner" deck lol). We all had some beers and it was actually a lot of fun.

I did very well the first game. Basically I had Bastion of Remembrance + Teysa Karlov out for most of the game and was able to drain everyone with my sac fodder pretty well. I then also got a Cruel Celebrant out and played Hangarback Walker and saced it to get 4 Thopter tokens, then saced them and domed everyone for lots of damage. It was pretty straight forward actually just sacing the tokens and dealing damage that it went well. Toxic Deluge also came in clutch to get rid of my opponents boards when they got wild. I won the game for my partner and I (he was killed earlier, so it came down to just me vs. my buddy's Chainer deck).

My one buddy played Yasova Dragonclaw and Sisay, Weatherlight Captain as his commanders for 2 games and stole some of my key creatures 2 games in a row, which was tough as I didn't have any sac outlets on the board at the time. My other buddy also played The Ur-Dragon as his commander, and he stole my Vilis, Broker of Blood which was rough as well.

Playing secret partner w/ 5 people was a bit different than the normal 4 way games we usually play, but I felt the deck still played fairly well and was a lot of fun. I think the power level is right where it needs to be to be honest.

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.

Charitable Greed


When Charitable Greed enters the battlefield, exile target permanent until Charitable Greed leaves the battlefield.

or pay 1/3rd of your life, rounded up: Exile this enchantment. Only the owner of the exiled permanent may activate this ability.

Coin, blood. It matters not. Only that payment is delivered.

Interested to see what a Teysa Karlov Planeswalker might look like. Please do that. If I recall, she can manifest spirits?

One of two things will happen when people see the deck name,

1.) They see it as a clever and witty pun that plays on Teysa Karlov's ability.


2.) They see it as sexist, degrading and insulting towards women.

I dont control how people percieve the name.

I do believe the name is what initially brought so many views to this deck and for that I'm grateful and have no plans to ever change the deck name.

My suggestion to you is to go find something else more worthy of your time and energy.

I... really think people are overestimating this card. One extra card and a 1/1 per turn cycle isn't great for 4 mana, is it?? Like, I don't even play competitively, and the only decks I know that would play this are my buddy's Rhys the Redeemed and Teysa Karlov builds, because they can use the token.

Arcades, the Strategist walls, anybody? (Tbh I didn’t get to read your already-finished list, if you’ve already used Arcades then maybe Teysa Karlov tokens?)

Samimaru, thanks for the upvote and suggestions!

Unfortunately, those cards are much better when you are playing around creature deaths (especially your own). I have them all in my Teysa Karlov deck since the main goal of that deck is to make as many tokens as possible and sac and recur creatures that produce tokens on death. This deck does NOT want our creature to die, as their value lies in what they do while in play. I also run a lot of exile effects for opponents creatures so even Blood Artist wouldn't be utilized to its fullest extent were I to run it, despite triggering on any creature.

I definitely think those creatures are good but they have a place and purpose to fulfill, neither of which really fit into this deck.

Since you want to abuse the death triggers, I would recommend you to try running Teysa Karlov, since she doubles all the death triggers and also gives lifelink and vigilance to all the tokens.
