Anyway, might I recommend Ashnod's Altar, Attrition, and Etchings of the Chosen? Ancestor's Prophet and Whipgrass Entangler may be cool tribal cards, as well.

I guess Heartless Summoning is used to get Myr Retriever for free and to trigger his ability. Get one of the Altar of the Brood in youre Hand you Entomb.

In my Playtest i only used Viscera Seer to sacrifice Geralf's Messenger or Myr Retriever until i get Vampiric Tutor/Phyrexian Unlife/Solemnity to get the Cards i want.

If you manage to get 2 Heartless Summoning and Solemnity out, Geralf's Messenger ability would trigger infinity duo to getting -2/-2 for Heartless Summoning and no Counter from Undying cause of Solemnity.

I think something like Attrition, Hidden Stockpile or Vampiric Rites would be a better Option then Viscera Seer, giving you atleast some board clear or card draw.

Sorry for my bad english...

Guys... Force of Will and Pact of Negation are rare... and you just have to get creative with your removal. Artifact Mutation/Aura Mutation, Attrition, Bedevil, Berserk, Bounty Agent, Decimate, Dimir Charm, Dreadbore THE LIST GOES ON

I'm going to suggest a lot of possible cards to give you options, but I'm not saying they should all go in the deck!

Here's some additional sac outlets, since I think they'll be useful for keeping your creatures flowing:
Viscera Seer
Birthing Pod
Woe Strider
Yahenni, Undying Partisan
Yawgmoth, Thran Physician
Diabolic Intent

And here are some cards that go well with doing damage and saccing creatures:
Dictate of Erebos
Butcher of Malakir
Erebos, Bleak-Hearted
Midnight Reaper
Moldervine Reclamation
Chandra's Ignition (deals double damage to the chosen player and is also a panic button)

You might need some additional protection since you're likely to be a target:
Teferi's Protection
Flawless Maneuver
Deflecting Swat

Hope that gives you a good starting point. However, I don't think Saskia is necessarily a high synergy commander. If you're really looking for synergy and/or combo decks (since you have Aluren in the deck), I'd recommend Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, or Meren of Clan Nel Toth.

Well, there is Carrion Feeder, Dimir House Guard, Phyrexian Plaguelord, Woe Strider, Attrition, and Ashnod's Altar

Plaguelord and attrition helps clear your opponent's board.

Woe Strider is a backup vicera seer that gives you a goat to sac.

Dimir is a free sac outlet that can double as a limited tutor.

Ashnod for the mana and carrion feeder is good because its cheap and free to activate. Maybe it gets big but not the main reason to run it.

So I would consider cutting Vigilante Justice for Impact Tremors.

Some other possible good includes Bastion of Remembrance or Reverent Hoplite. The Ozolith could also be helpful for times when your big Silvar, Devourer of the Free gets removed so you don't lose all of your counters. You could also consider adding something like Grave Pact to make your sacrificial engine nastier.

Attrition could also be a possible substitution for Skirsdag Flayer.

I don't know what I am missing here, but by my count you are one card shy of 100. 32 creatures (commander included) + 35 lands + 8 enchantments + 10 artifacts + 9 instants + 5 sorcery = 99 cards. If that is the case, great, this deck wants more lands. I'd say 36-37 is a good number of lands for an EDH deck. If you can swing the cost of fetches, they work really well with Korvold. After that, I'd say that with the number of aristocrats you have in the deck (as well as the token doubling cards) I would say that you could benefit from more token production. If I were you, I would cut the mana dorks like Llanowar Elves or Boreal Druid for cards like Kodama's Reach and Skyshroud Claim then start finding good token producers. The ones that come to mind are Bitterblossom (or Shitterblossom for budget) as well as things like Hornet Queen, Ant Queen, Dragon Broodmother, Dragonlair Spider, Tendershoot Dryad, Avenger of Zendikar, Grave Titan, Kessig Cagebreakers etc. A personal favorite token-producing gimmick card I adore is Hornet Nest but that one is more of a pet option. Funny rattlesnake card though! Then if you do decide to go deep into tokens, I can't recommend Sadistic Hypnotist more highly. Other good token sac-outlets that come to mind are Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Smothering Abomination, Attrition, or Eldrazi Monument. I think that's all I've got right now, hope I'm not coming across as overbearing or anything here! Looking forward to seeing the deck evolve.

Really good deck, totally beats my most competitive deck reliably, but I am amused to note it struggles vs my creature heavy mono green deck. Not sure what you could realistically do to deal with a deck like that without hurting the deck in general. I doubt you have to deal with a deck like that in your meta, so I think it's a non-issue. Maybe Attrition? You do have a great supply of creatures potentially, as long as you have one player you can hit, and you generally should have some B mana to use it. It seems more like a sideboard card though to be honest, but pro-active defense of your planeswalkers is a good strategy.

Note, there is no salt like the salt of being beaten by planeswalkers. Kudos for really making them a force here.
