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.

Teysa Karlov Discussion

CrimsonChaos Huh, I like Gravecrawler , and I have a copy of Leyline of Anticipation , but I'm missing what the Thornbite Staff does for the deck???

Also, thanks for pointing out the Teysa Karlov and Pitiless Plunderer thing!

Strike_Rouge on Blood Moon in Four-Color Mana ...

2 weeks ago

Commanders: Tana, the Bloodsower / Tymna the Weaver (Like you had any other guesses?)

Deck variant: reanimator aristocrats

Card in question: Blood Moon

Question: How tf do you run that card outside of cEDH mana bases?

Further explanation: Running few non-basic lands is difficult in four colors. I don't run the usual cEDH mana rocks or fetch lands because my decks are only, at most, what people might call "budget cEDH" (not fully up to the "c" in "cEDH", but definitely based on cEDH counterparts). There exists Chromatic Lantern and Gilded Lotus , but to be perfectly honest, I'm not fond of either. I dislike almost any mana rock with over CMC 2 that only produces one mana per tap, and while Lotus might produce three mana, having a CMC of 5 kills it for me.

Already-brainstormed solutions:

Play cheaper (money-wise) mana rocks in place (signets, talismans, etc.).

  • One of the more viable circumventions. My only objection lies in how lands are more viable strictly in the sense that there are more ways to blow up a rock than there are for lands. Since green is involved, land ramp tutors are a thing.

"Just play x," where x =/= $100+

Chrome Mox , Bloom Tender

  • Real wallet murderers, these ones. But also super helpful; might be worth it.

Avacyn's Pilgrim , Elves of Deep Shadow , Birds of Paradise , and other dorks

  • Creatures are easily killed, and although I already planned on needing these, there's no way they can support the mana base that well.

Oracle of Mul Daya , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Courser of Kruphix , etc.

  • Playing extra land is amazing... when there's land to play. I generally dislike playing more than 32-33 land in a deck outside of landfall (max 28- 30 colored land + fetch lands, 1-3 utility lands), so odds are moderate, but not super high. Also, again, creatures are easily killed.

Cryptolith Rite

  • The only thing on the list that might actually work consistently, is below 3 CMC, and below even $10. Bonus: explicit Enchantment removal is still barely a thing. Let's just hope a boardwipe doesn't occur.

Don't run Blood Moon

So yeah, any and all thoughts welcome.

Might I suggest Gravecrawler , Thornbite Staff , and Leyline of Anticipation (or if you're feeling extravagant you could throw in Vedalken Orrery instead)? These three together would give you pretty repeatable counters. On their own that's pretty strong, but combine with Teysa Karlov and Pitiless Plunderer , and you can infinitely counter things and basically prevent your opponents from doing just about anything at all! It would take setup, but pulling it off would feel way good.

Kogarashi on Teysa karlov and strionic resonator

Each one would only get you one trigger.

When Doomed Traveler dies, its ability triggers. Because a creature dying triggered the ability, Teysa Karlov 's ability causes that ability to trigger a second time. Copying the triggered ability with Strionic Resonator isn't causing any additional triggering, just duplicating the triggered ability, so it won't implicate Teysa's ability again.

Basically the way Teysa and Resonator are worded, they are each worth +1 copy of the triggered ability.

If I have Teysa Karlov and Strionic Resonator in play and a Doomed Traveler in play and the traveler dies, can I use the resonator to copy the ability, allowing teysa to copy both triggers, or would each one only get me 1 trigger

Teysa Karlov is the embodiment of a “value engine” which you could use as your sixth hub to help garner more deck views.

Also have you thought about Warteye Witch ? Synergizes very well with death triggers.
