Windbrisk Heights Discussion

This list looks really fun! I like Legion's Landing Flip in Teysa. I've overlooked it in the past because of the land's lackluster activated ability, but I'm just now realizing how strong a 1 mana land-ramp card is in white. Since you can easily flip it in a deck with tokens, it seems strong.
I've been looking over your decklist, and I have a few suggestions about what to improve. First off, you're a little low on death triggers. Since this is Teysa's main strength, you may want to include more. If I counted right, you have 13 death triggers plus 2 more that aren't doubled by Teysa ( Luminous Broodmoth and Nether Traitor ). This makes Teysa herself more inconsistent. Just playing some more tokens-on-death cards like Ministrant of Obligation instead of Lingering Souls can go a long way to help facilitate her first ability as well as your cards that don't trigger off of tokens, like Pawn of Ulamog .
Second, I'd be careful about counting scry-effects like Temple of Silence , Woe Strider , or Path of Ancestry as card advantage. Scrying doesn't net you any cards. It's more like card filtering or card selection rather than card advantage. If you want lands that can provide card advantage, I'd go for Orzhov Basilica or Windbrisk Heights . Similarly, Verge Rangers don't ramp you, they just provide card advantage.

I see you have Sword of the Animist already. Awesome! I also use Terrain Generator and Lotus Field in my Nahiri equipment deck for additional non-artifact ramp. It works really well. I've also been known to Settle the Wreckage several of my own tokens after moving the equipment to another creature like Balan, Armory Automaton , or Heavenly Blademaster . I've gotten 6 lands before on a single turn doing this! Also, I know you said you didn't want to run rocks but so many people don't know that Inspiring Statuary is ridiculously strong in equipment decks. Basically it turns all of your equipment into mana rocks! Windbrisk Heights is also another land-based way of cheating out a high mana cost card.
My deck if you're curious: Pure Nahiri

It's cool how you built a deck entirely out of cards you got from variety boxes. I think you might like these if you wanted to snag some singles for the deck: Mask of Memory , Tome of Legends , Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" , Celestial Crusader , Archetype of Courage , Battlefield Raptor , Encampment Keeper , Glorious Anthem , Heraldic Banner , Signal Pest , Accorder Paladin , Rhox Veteran , Marshal's Anthem , Always Watching , Windbrisk Heights , Shefet Dunes

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.
Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.
Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.
Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.
Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound
Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver
Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie
General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

ellie-is: here is the update from today:
- Game1 Esper Control: Got good starts in both Matches
- Game2 AspiringSpikes Jeskai Wildfire:
-- Match 1: Mulligand to 5 with still 1 Land -> Conceded turn 3 to opponents Teferi, Time Raveler with only 1 Land myself
-- Match 2, the good case happened: Got 4 Birds out of Battle Screech Turn 4 and won Turn 6 with them :)
-- Match 3, the bad case happened: Got my board cleared with Supreme Verdict, played but was not able to flash back Battle Screech afterwards and then lost the game to Cryptic Command + Mystic Sanctuary + Jace, the Mind Sculptor :(
- Game3 Temur Taking Turns:
-- Match 1: Opponent was able to keep his head above the water with Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath's Lifegain and Cryptic Command-Tap my Team. Did not draw any "Virtues" and lost to the combo with 13 1/1 creature tokens onboard
-- Match 2: Opponent got down a turn 1 Wrenn and Six due to Gemstone Caverns and was able to ping down my early tokens, played an Anger of the Gods turn 4, slowed me down with Jace, the Mind Sculptor & Chandra, Torch of Defiance and won with his combo turn 7
Conclusion: the games where overshadowed by my lack of sideboard cards against control and not by Battle Screech alone and I need more playtests, do you have any suggestions ?
The MonoW manabase felt a lot better than the Orzhov manabase indeed
I don't think that cutting on the 2-Drops is a good idea due to the low landcount and Windbrisk Heights coming into play tapped (sometimes turn 3) , it would be possible to run a split between Battle Screech, Spectral Procession and Lingering Souls.

may main red flag with the deck is, you have a lot of creature removal, but little hand disruption. in modern turn 1 inquisition/thoughtseize is about as strong as it gets. id stick to 4 path, 2 push, (0 dissmember, unmaking and alliance) 4 inquisitions, 1-2 Collective Brutality, 3 tidehollow i would also strongly consider 2 Kaya's Guile mb, there modular nature makes them relevant in most matchups and the can be used as a strait up, make a token, opponent sacs a creature.
other potential options, Start / Finish tokens and removal on a single card is always great
lastly mono w tokens has been making a good showing recently, and a big part is down to Force of Virtue which may be a solid option for the deck as a 2 of.
hope some of these help

Ok, For game one, I added mostly a mana base; 21 Plains Windbrisk Heights, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, New Benalia, Eiganjo Castle, Mistveil Plains, Flagstones of Trokair, Castle Ardenvale, and Idyllic Grange
additionally i made one creature adjustment Master Apothecary was removed for Luminous Broodmoth. There is a mana increase in this swap but now a land does what the Apothecary does easier, and this gives a lot of the creatures some kind of mass removal evasion.
i will play more up to 15 games and make adjustments, let me know what you think.
Also Eye for an Eye is amazing.
