Korvold not being a reliable sac outlet I suggest these, Viscera Seer and Prossh, Skyraider of Kher .

Korvold is more of a , hey I'm glad you were here when all that happened card. He's the perfect battlefield ascetic for sac decks.

These cards are also way better token producers than some of this stuff you have, although bitterblossum for sac tokens is kind of Meh IMO. Its a great card, but those tokens are more useful as attackers.

Also cards like Phyrexian Reclamation are really handy and cheap. Nice deck, reminds me of my deck in some ways ☠ вℓσσ∂ ση cняιsтмαs ☠.

Saber Ants . That and Hornet Nest work well with cards like Simulacrum , Give No Ground and Valor Made Real . They give you a huge creature advantage after a Blasphemous Act or Star of Extinction .

Tattered Nest

Creature - Pest


Whenever Tattered Nest is dealt damage, create that many 0/1 black Pest creature tokens.

Pests you control get +1/+1


Inspired by Hornet Nest , which is a card I love but can't find a decent home for where it truly shines. One day I'll be able to run a playset in Modern and people will roll their eyes and sigh... one day :'3

Take a local bar in your area and turn it into a legendary land, lololol

Unfortunately the Hornet Nest trick only works with Ulvenwald Tracker , as Ayula doesn't let you target a creature you control with the fight mechanic. Still really cool though.

11/10 for this deck name. I love it.

Wow absolutely love the flavor of Hornet Nest , that is super clever.

To go with the flavor you could proxy a Drop of Honey (700 bucks is not on budget I know)... since you are in voltron it wouldn't be horrible since you'll likely have one of the biggest creatures at all times. Its a weird card... but flavor is flavor right?

Rishkar's Expertise is my favorite green card draw spell and I would try and find a home for it here, maybe instead of soul's majesty? The one mana difference shouldn't matter too much in mono green.
