Animation Module


Whenever one or more +1/+1 counters are placed on a permanent you control, you may pay 1. If you do, create a 1/1 colorless Servo artifact creature token.

3, T: Choose a counter on target permanent or player. Give that permanent or player another counter of that kind.

CrimsonChaos on Korvold, the hangry kang

1 week ago

Another fantastic combo to take advantage of Korvold's abilities is by adding in Animation Module in conjunction with Korvold and Ashnod's Altar . Just have an extra thing to sac, and as soon as you slap that +1/+1 counter on Korvold you can pay one generic mana to get a servo, which you can then sac with the altar and repeat the process. Boom, you can now get a ton of mana, card draw, and buff counters on your commander as long as you're careful not to draw yourself out. You can even add in an Elixir of Immortality to help perpetuate things, if you'd like.

Hi there.

A few suggestions to your deck:

  • Take out Manifold Key . It's a bad card and does next to nothing for the deck. Having it in just to untap Steel Overseer and Hangarback Walker is going to be very mediocre at best, as you will already be in a good spot, if you get to untap with them normally. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar looks like a much stronger inclusion.

  • Heroic Intervention is a good sideboard card, but I wouldn't play it in the main. Inspiring Call I'd take out all together. Drawing some cards is fine, but you mainly want it for the indestructibility, which Intervention does better and cheaper. Stonecoil Serpent should go in the main instead.

  • Verdurous Gearhulk is a tad expensive with only 21 lands in the deck. I'd take them out. If the deck gets to do its thing, the Gearhulk is just a win-more card anyway. Rishkar, Peema Renegade is strong in this deck and adds a lot of pressure early on. Remember that he also scales super well with Animation Module + any card that puts counters on the tokens, as they get to tap for mana and make even more tokens.

Animation Module could work well in this deck.

lagotripha on Pioneer GW Convoke Tokens

I'd like to see more token generation in the lower slots- convoke payoffs are amazing, but cutting a few to get a threat on the board that can scare 3 mana plainswalkers is essential for pioneer. More raise the alarm, more marshal.

In terms of 1 drops, Legion's Landing  Flip Hunted Witness , Cartouche of Solidarity , Skymarcher Aspirant / Snubhorn Sentry , Thraben Inspector exist. If you make bigger tokens, Wake the Reflections can work. Springleaf Drum helps power out low-mana creatures.

Voice of Resurgence is the strongest 2 drop available for this list.

Further up the curve, Launch the Fleet , Countless Gears Renegade / Servo Exhibition , Dwynen's Elite , Animation Module / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Hero of Precinct One , Lovestruck Beast , Murder Investigation Precinct Captain , Thorn Lieutenant , Westvale Abbey  Flip and Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip

In terms of sidebord, we'll see how the meta shapes up, but Alive / Well , Dryad Militant are worth looking at beside standard options. Druid's Deliverance if vannafar combo takes off. Sundering Growth as an artifact answer.

Hi there, love the brew! I've been working on a list of my own a little bit as well. Animation Module goes infinite with Korvold + KCI/Ashnod's Altar.

Come over to the Korvold discord, if you haven't already and join in the chat! We've been working a little bit on the Eggs plan:

CrimsonChaos on Korvold's Hunger

Ashnod's Altar and Animation Module can be a powerful combo setup with Korvold. More sac outlets in general would probably be nice to have, like Viscera Seer , Priest of Forgotten Gods , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Goblin Bombardment , or Ayara, First of Locthwain . Token generators like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Pawn of Ulamog , etc. are good for giving Korvold plenty of fodder to sac. Ramunap Excavator is a more affordable version of Crucible of Worlds , allowing you to replay any lands you sac, and having creature recursion through Phyrexian Reclamation may prove useful too. All of which should each be cheaper than ten bucks!

TheUnaturalTree on Mono-Green Evolve

This deck has no answers to flyers or control, and despite having a mostly low curve it's going to take too long to build up to effectively answer to aggro and stompy decks. Also, you're going too wide with cards. Try to focus on getting playsets of your most effective cards (in my opinion Gyre Sage , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Barkhide Troll , Renegade Krasis , Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Animation Module , and Avatar of the Resolute against flyers), and try using Rabid Bite for effective removal. You'll want to just attack with Ghalta, Primal Hunger , there are few games a 12/12 trample can't figure out. If you have space 4 Power Conduit 's can also make blockers way easier to deal with, basically being reusable combat tricks.

Poly_raptor on Korvold Buff Bot

I’d strongly recommend running some free sac outlets.

Ashnod's Altar

Phyrexian Altar

Altar of Dementia

Also there’s some good combos with Words of Wilding and Animation Module that let you infinitely buff of Korvold if you have acess to an altar that adds mana.

Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos could be better than butcher of Malakir due to their reduced casting cost.

Hope this is of some use :)
