Teysa, Orzhov Scion occurrence in decks from the last year

Teysa, Orzhov Scion Discussion

KibaAlpha on Teysa Karlov’s Double D's

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

Hi Ghostbreath77!

Great, seeing something decent going on in Orzhov :) As for your gameplan you can probably take inspiration off of this list: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/lurrus-stax-cedh/

Deafening Silence and Spirit of the Labyrinth seem like auto-includes to me if you wanna go the disruptive route.

I'm playing combo-teysa since 6 years. You're most certainly right on your choice of commanders since card advantage is crucial in strong metas. However Teysa, Orzhov Scion lead my deck leaning to a markov-like list (https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/symphony-of-the-knight-primer/), trying to generate value from bodys with cards like Grim Haruspex and Carnival of Souls. First target for tutoring is always Skullclamp which is awesome when teysa is out and/or you play cards like Pitiless Plunderer and Zombie Infestation which can loot through your whole deck and need minimal setup. Most compact combos are the dead-cat-loop and gravecrawler and carrionfeeder on your choice of Phyrexian Altar, carnival or pirate.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite might be considerations for a decent top end, making ad nauseam more painful obviously.

If there gonna be some ideas thrown together I can see some proper Orzhov Lists coming up :) great to see that there's more people into it!

I see a lot of similarities mechanics-wise (not so much card selection) here between your deck and my Exile Everything! (Triple Teysas) deck.

  • Athreos, God of Passage is a pricey one to buy singles of, but he works amazingly well in a variety of deck types (including yours here from the looks of it)

  • Teysa, Orzhov Scion would combo extremely well with your build as well as it will trigger more token generation as well as offer some potential control options.

  • You've got some Legends running in this build already, so Arvad the Cursed might be something to toy with.

There might be some other suggestions buried in my deck if you want to take a look at that. Some other decent suggestions in the comments as well.

RiotRunner789 on Jank Control?

6 months ago

There are a lot of different kinds of control. Since you mentioned Jank, I would recommend staying away from blue (or go deep end blue jank).

The Orzhov recommendation is pretty good. I would recommend Kambal, Consul of Allocation or Karlov of the Ghost Council, or Teysa, Orzhov Scion. Intermix elements of pillow fort and lifegain with control elements of board wipes and spot removal to get you ahead. Also, black has the best discard and acts as a great counter to blue/opponent card advantage.

Speaking of discard, you could go with a mono-black discard strategy which is an amazing resource denial (black at its best) for your opponents. There is Rankle, Master of Pranks and Tinybones, Trinket Thief who would probably work best but there are also others.

rofldiekatz on Good ol' Edgar - Aristocrats/Drain

Hi HannahBarbera, thanks for your suggestions. Anointed Procession tends to annoy me since it doesn't do a lot when the whole board is already set up (unlike Teysa, Orzhov Scion) but for now I moved it back in. Shared Animosity is a powerhouse for Edgar Markov decks but I feel it doesn't really suit the aristocrats-style enough. I might end up putting it in later though. Once again thank you for the suggestions! ;)

As long as you're running a good slew of creatures with evasion so that you can keep drawing up to 3 cards a turn off Tymna, going heavy on single target removal isn't a bad thing.

While it would disable skulk a bit, you could also look at partnering Tymna with Ravos, Soultender to help connect damage as well as take advantage of stuff like Attrition and Teysa, Orzhov Scion as repeatable removal effects.

I'd lower the Athreos count to 1. Also, you may want to work on your mana base. Perhaps consider a Teysa, Orzhov Scion?
