My favorite commander, hands down. Lack of blood artist saddens me. Also, Lolth is insanely good in this deck. Play Lolth with Teysa on-board and you can ult her if you sac two creatures. Pretty easy to do with her curve, then you get a permanent emblem the rest of the game!
I usually don't like to run Blood Artist as it end up hitting only a single player; I usually want to be able to hit all my opponents with my Zulaport Effects.
Speaking about Lolth, I agree that it is pretty easy to ulti but I rarely found myself attacking if not for the first few turns where I could get some free swings, so I think her Emblem would rarely become useful for me... much better to create spiders to sac or card draw
You def should run blood artist. If you go infinate it doesnt matter how many it hits at once, and its also nice to have redudanties of your win con. Its also very cheap.
Agree with it. If the deck goes infinite it is nice to have as you are gonna win even if it targets a single opponents. Here the deck doesn't have infinite combos and that's why a decided to not put it in
Your deck does have infinite combos tho:
Plunderer, Ashnod's Altar, and Reassembling Skeleton Is infinite ETB/LTB
Aristocrats is inherently a combo strategy. It is almost hard to make a good Aristocrats deck that doesn't go infinite.
oh! You are right! Damn...
Don't know how reliable can be without many tutors to get it but still I heard many positive opinions about the Blood Artist that I'm totally going to add it to the deck.
I used to agree as well but blood artist seeing *all* creatures dying is hella strong, once had a goblin player have like 60+ creatures only to wipe his board and do 100+ damage to the table, zulaport doesn't do that
Ok, thinking this way suddenly makes is much more relevant. Honestly I rarely saw board that degenerate and when they appear usually my opponents try to win the game with it the same turn, so I never thought about it in those terms.
Yup it's really good, even if it's just a few dying from combat with teysa on the board it could be the difference of you surviving a turn or not
I will then think about put in into the list. Thank ya!
I hear ya! She's free card draw, too. It's amazing how quick her loyalty builds, especially with teysa out.. Also, one little 1/1 flying spirit hits for 8. That's pretty impactful late game :)
For a moment I had to re-read Lolth's emblem lol Thought that I always read it wrong and made all creatures hit for 8 lol after re-reading it I then understood what you were trying to say to me
Teysa is my aristocrat queen as well, i can share my deck list if you need ideas (it's pretty tuned though)
Share it freely! So people that want a more tuned version of the one I'm playing can look up to yours!
