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.

Here is the link to the "2DH" version of my Teysa Karlov Aristocrats deck.


I do move cards around quite often due to my nitpicky nature along with the price limitation rule...but the core cards/concept remain intact.

The power level in my group creeped up so high that it became stagnant...so we decided to give this Commander variant a shot. We absolutely love it...it makes the experience feel like Edh used to feel like because of the limitations on usable cards. This allows, or rather forces, a deck builder's dream come true because of, again, the limitations make you get real creative with what you're aiming to accomplish with a given deck. The ONLY real hang-up of this format is keeping up with the ban list...but it's not as bad as one may think.

Recently built my own Teysa Karlov deck after a ~2-3 year hiatus. Glad to see it pop up again! Wanted to say thank you for the inspiration!

I’m assuming cards like Requiem Angel and Divine Visitation are too mana-intensive for the deck? They’re all-stars in mine, and allow me to pop off, even on their own.

Just wanted to drop by to say some kind words!

Masterful, the commander set has some possibly good cards:

Body Count could be real useful for drawing a lot of cards if we're running out of steam on a combo turn. Since the spectacle conditions shouldn't be hard if we have an aristocrat out, then it could be draw 5+ cards for only 1 mana.

Life Insurance is the only orzhov card this set. It's 1CMC more than Smothering Tithe, only works off non-token creatures but doubles off Teysa Karlov, gives you the extort mechanic for extra mana payoff and potentially provides more Treasure tokens. I think Smothering Tithe is still stronger since you can drop it early and accrue the treasures as turns progress. Life Insurance requires you to have bodies and a sac outlet.

As one who enjoys piloting Teysa Karlov, I love your list.

Forgive me if this has been brought up already...but since Reassembling Skeleton is such an important card in your list, have you ever considered Bloodsoaked Champion? He's kind of a better skellie, only with (IMO) a minor condition to be met in attaining "Raid."

Hi all! :)

It's been a while and I've recently decided to brew a deck theme that I've been thinking of making for a while now, aristocrats! Teysa Karlov is at helm, because she seems like a really fun value engine.

I'm working with a slight budget for new cards, because all the more expensive cards I have already in my collection. I also want to keep this deck about 75% because it's more fun to play a back and forth game with others. Was wondering if there are any cool new cards I might've missed that synergies well with her!

Here's the deck in question: A Teysa-tiful Death

Kodama of the Center Tree is super powerful in a spirit deck. With enough spirits, it can easily recurr itself, and even bringung back something like a Sekki usually isn't too hard. Iirc, as Soulshift triggers from the battlefield, you only need it plus four other spirits to have it have Soulshift 5. And I just realized you have a Teysa Karlov in here. That makes Center Tree even better.

Have you tried Teysa Karlov in this deck? She can double the Soulshift triggers.

KBK7101- High Market is a maybe im still trying to get the mana base good enough but it may have a place after tinkering. As for O-Kagachi vs Kyodai neither mesh well with the whole death trigger in fact i wish there as a commander in five colors with Teysa Karlov first ability and Moldervine Reclamation in one card would be perfect... perhaps a bit to broken?

RambIe- I would say there a kami theme per say maybe you could call it a sub theme? If there is a kami theme it more in the background and is not as important as making this deck work. the same could be said for the all that dragon support yes it 12 dragons but it also only has 12 dragons as Teneb, the Harvester was already in the deck. However Palace Siege, Haven of the Spirit Dragon and The Kami War  Flip will defiantly find a place in the deck. As for Bladewing the Risen and Korvold, Fae-Cursed King I considered them but haven't really found a place for them the rest don't really help with what im looking for

Massacar- Mirror Gallery will find a place can always use legendary rule removal redundancy. Soul Foundry most likly will not be added as I just cut Mimic Vat for the same reason it makes me exile a Star/Sky dragon to make a copy and if the artifacts get destroyed i lose those creature permanently, while vat negates somewhat but putting the old one into the graveyard i still am weary on exiling them.

Necrosis24- I'm not looking for this to be competitive just looking for it to fun, functional and could win me some games.

Bramble Sovereign, Flameshadow Conjuring, Molten Echoes and Mirror March are all great adds and add more red to the deck is minor thing but it bother me that the basically the only red were the command and the two star/sky dragons. As for all the "Legendary Rule doesn't apply" cards yes if i don't have them free on death triggers if i have them big flying disposable minion army either way i win (though having them on board has more pluses than them just blowing up but either way is fine).

As for Reflections of Littjara i like it

As for Infinite Reflection and Echoing Equation will need some time to consider them.

And for Avenger of Zendikar + Mystic Reflection I like the consecpt but not sure if i can squeeze them in
