My favorite guild (and color combination) is Orzhov. I appreciate and enjoy any comments/suggestions on my decks.

My favorite blocks are all the Ravnica ones, Lorwyn/Shadowmoor, The Dark, and Zendikar.

I don't know what your budget it is or how optimized you want this deck but immediate suggestions are a few tutors at the least. Diabolic Tutor is the cheap everyone goes for until they get better ones. Beseech the Queen isn't bad either. There's also Diabolic Intent , Demonic Tutor , Dark Petition , Vampiric Tutor , Diabolic Revelation , and more.

If you are playing with death triggers and things dying some good options are Debtors' Knell , Sheoldred, Whispering One , Black Market , and whatnot. Also, you have white! Use Swords to Plowshares ! I'd keep Merciless Eviction as it is a wonderful board wipe but also consider Hour of Revelation . Other good cards are like Anguished Unmaking , Utter End , and Vindicate .

I don't know how much you want but I'm going to recommend some cards as a Teysa, Orzhov Scion fan.

Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation is great in EDH to start the board over all over again. Merciless Eviction is something you should definitely keep in the deck by the way.

Anointed Procession is really good for doubling up on token effects. Requiem Angel and Field of Souls can be really nice too. Army of the Damned can provide a lot of bodies to work with. I've won with Army of the Damned and Maw of the Obzedat before. Storm Herd is an absolute beast too.

Two artifacts that you should consider are Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar . These can let you go infinite if you also get a Darkest Hour or a Painter's Servant . I have a Darkest Hour in mine, can't justify the price of the Painter's Servant yet. Either way both of those Altars are great with or without going infinite.

Illusionist's Bracers are great on Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Maw of the Obzedat should you include one as well. Three tokens to exile two creatures? Yes, please. In theory, if you have a Maw with the Bracers out and you Storm Herd at 40 life, you can sacrifice 5 of them and have 35 11/11 flying pegasus. Great card, I think it's underrated.

Also consider getting gravepact and/or Dictate of Erebos and maybe a Martyr's Bond too. You may not exile creatures with Teysa when they're out because of the way the stack works and if you sacrifice three creatures they'll sacrifice theirs before Teysa can exile it, but it's extremely good to keep your creatures out and have everyone else open.

Ah, understandable. I run Black Market with Teysa, Orzhov Scion. So even though I'm exiling things, I'm usually sacrificing my own things so it's beneficial either way.

No tutors? Depending on budgets/styles you can go with Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation , Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Dark Petition , Increasing Ambition , Beseech the Queen and probably more. I use Revelation with two others and if I generate enough mana, I can Elixir of Immortality back my old tutors and use Revelation to search them back out along with the Elixir plus whatever else I want.

As for board wipes I'd recommend at least a Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation just to make sure you can wipe a board clean and nice. Also, Merciless Eviction is strong when someone starts making things indestructible or you need to remove a specific type of problem off the table.

Fun enchantments like Black Market can also fetch you quite a bit of mana.

I'm coming in with a lot here. Not going to say what to take out due to how much I am recommending, sorry.
I'd say Soul's Attendant is strictly better than Warden but running both isn't bad either. I like Attendant for when people play anti-life gain cards like Rain of Gore and others. Of course, Phyrexian Altar is a second altar that's a great sac outlet whenever you need it. Consider cards like Dictate of Erebos and Martyr's Bond , I see you already have Grave Pact on the maybeboard. Teysa Karlov is a great card to get too but consider Teysa, Orzhov Scion .

Also, you definitely should go for an Anointed Procession . Too good of a card for any white deck with tokens. This deck is already looking great though.

It seems Sol Ring , Talisman of Hierarchy , Thought Vessel , Caves of Koilos , and Fetid Heath are your colorless options. Now that you made me look at your lands more closely, have you considered Reliquary Tower ? I consider it nearly a staple for EDH. You have a Necropotence and what's better than just paying 10 when you want instead of balancing your hand? And it comes in handy for whenever players try to fill your hand in group hug decks or punish you by filling your hand in draw decks that punish you for it.

Nice to see new Orzhov decks with no Teysas. Instead you run Karlov and both Ghoust Council cards. I dig it. I can't let go of my Teysa but seeing an extort deck is neat.

Besides telling you to just spend more money/trades on better tutors/lands (which I assume you already would like to), I can think of one suggestion. You already run Ephemerate and if you're using that to save or just blink the Ghost Councils and other things, you could always put it on an Isochron Scepter and spend 2 but do it over and over again. Same with Swords to Plowshares on it. There's also the Eldrazi Displacer which can get more than one use out of it for blinks but requires a colorless mana to activate the ability.

#10

If you included some cards that retrieve cards from the graveyard as well in the deck you could counter your own Phage with things like Dash Hopes and Thrull Wizard . Your Withering Boon would also compliment this.

Things to put Phage into your hand from the graveyard could be Aid the Fallen , Call to the Netherworld , Cemetery Recruitment , Disentomb , Ghoulcaller's Chant , Grim Discovery , March of the Drowned , and the new Order of Midnight . There are plenty more with the same effects but I'm only listing the 1 and 2 CMC options since less mana is always better!
