I appreciate the suggestions but I've built this deck to be infinite combo free hence why you don't see Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar and Reassembling Skeleton .

I want my commander to be relevant. Infinite takes all relevance away. I might still try to find a spot for Reassembling Skeleton but I've got a couple other cards right now I'm trying to find a spot for.

A Gaddock Teeg deck in a playgroup or at a LGS where people don't run creature heavy decks would be "fun".

Fair enough. Everyone's playgroup or LGS is different with their meta. If you haven't and want to take a look at a very solid Death Trigger Aristocrats build feel free to check my deck out. It's not budget but you might find something of value you can incorporate in to your own deck. Good luck and Happy Brewing.

First bring your land count down to 35, 37 at the most.

I suggest removing Reveal in riches. Without the ability to play it at flash speed the odds of playing it on your turn and having it still on the board by the time your turn comes around again is slim to none. Cathars' Crusade , has nearly no value in a aristocrats build. Teysa, Orzhov Scion , she is best used as a commander for an infinite combo build. Suture Priest , unless you are going for some lifegain win con this seems pretty useless. Cliffhaven Vampire , it has nothing that synergizes with your commander. Mortify , don't need it so long as you have Archon of Justice , Anguished Unmaking and Utter End in your deck. You could add Generous Gift if you wanted to. Unmake , creature target only, leaves it limited in it's use.

Thank you, your appreciation is appreciated.

Short answer to your infinite combo question is, I find it boring. I will admit this deck started out as an infinite combo built deck though but that quickly changed.

Long answer to your infinite question is, Teysa Karlov . Look at her, look at what her first ability does. It's beautiful. When she was spoiled I was stoked and when I was fortunate enough to pull her I was ecstatic. However as I went to build her for infinite I realized within the first game that the commander I was all excited to have was 100% irrelevant in a infinite build. Any legendary creature in Orzhov colours would do. Teysa Karlov had no relevance. I wanted my deck to have value from the commander but not necessarily need the commander to win.

I was determined to have that and thus rebuilt the deck from the ground up making sure to the best of my knowledge and ability to keep the deck infinite combo free and avoid creature combat focusing solely on Aristocrat Death Triggers to win.

I get together with friends on Saturday's to play Magic for hours, shooting the shit, laughing and having a good time win or lose. I don't want to focus on winning or ending the game before turn 10. It seems rather pointless to build a 100 card deck if you are just going to infinite out that fast and how are you going to have a good time with friends ending games that quickly. To me personally you can't.

Hopefully this answers your question and on a side note I'm not against anyone building infinite combos they just aren't how I want to brew my decks.

You should look at adding Bloodflow Connoisseur , Carrion Feeder , Spawning Pit , Viscera Seer and Altar of Dementia for sac outlets.

For sac fodder look to add Archon of Justice , Doomed Traveler , Doomed Dissenter , Myr Sire , Tithe Taker , Orzhov Enforcer and Ministrant of Obligation to name a few.

For card draw look to Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex and Greed .

Ramp using Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

Recur your creatures using Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening .

Garruk's Wake wipes the board leaving your stuff intact then cast Command the Dreadhorde to take control what ever number of planeswalkers and creatures are in your opponents graveyard.

Blade of Selves works nicely with Reyhan, Last of the Abzan . The copies come in to play with the counters. The copies get sacrificed and the counters can be moved thanks to Reyhan, Last of the Abzan ability.

Looks like you are trying to build off both abilities of Teysa Karlov .

I’m not a fan of that and I don’t recommend it.

Both her abilities are strong and I suggest picking just one of them to maximize the efficiency of your deck.

Maybe I’m missing it but what exactly is your decks win con?

I’m not seeing any of the life loss Death Triggers.

No massing of Tokens to swarm.

A lack of creatures to swing with.

Overall the deck looks to kind of all over.

I’d like to help if you would explain more of what you want to accomplish with the deck.

If you are wanting to go hard aristocrats I can certainly help you out there.
