Korvold, Fae-Cursed King Discussion

multimedia on COOL sac Korvold deck?!

Hey, Korvold, Fae-Cursed King is not $10 it's $5 and is right up your alley if you like Mayhem Devil. Korvold is a much stronger Commander with his repeatable draw/grows himself than Rakdos. Jund Goblins could work since Goblin tokens can be saced to Korvold and it gives you Grumgully, the Generous + Scuzzback Marauders combo which Mayhem is a win condition.

From what I've heard so far, 2 of the first place winners were Sigarda, Host of Herons voltron and Korvold, Fae-Cursed King that could also get rather large. Sounds like going big is a good idea if you can't figure anything else

Korvold, Fae-Cursed King is a super high value card and could absolutely run on uncommons.

All else fails you could do thrasios and tymna instead and just outdraw your opponents til you win

ZendikariWol on Lithoform Enginge: Not Broken, Definitely …

I hate that Lithoform Engine goes into 80% of EDH decks below power level 8. It's so stupidly universal, why not put it in? Does your commander have an activated ability or care about instants, sorceries, tokens, or generating value by doubling your spells? Congratulations, you account for roughly 90% of the commander format.

This card would slot very comfortably into five of my seven paper decks (Roon of the Hidden Realm, Sisay, Weatherlight Captain, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, with Chainer, Nightmare Adept, and Korvold, Fae-Cursed King being the exceptions). It slots comfortably into four out of my best friend's four decks (Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, The Ur-Dragon, and Olivia Voldaren).

This card is not nutso bonkers silly powerful. It is, however, so versatile that as long as your deck can spend 4 mana on an artifact that does nothing immediately (which most EDH decks can at some point in the game), you should probably be running this card. I don't like cards like this at all. The strokes it paints in are just too broad, which is a shame because this card would be a massively cool proof of concept for a new deck I want to make, Double Masters: helmed by Riku of Two Reflections and sporting only cards which have a 2 on them or interact somehow with 2. It's a shame that this card isn't cool and is instead just very, very good.

Sorry if this is a rant but I am annoyed; I love this card as a johnny, because I want to maximize it, but the floor is so broadly applicable that it's useless to do so, and it'll probably be prohibitively expensive anyway- we love being a Magic-playing college student- because of its broad strength.

Korvold, Fae-Cursed King and Wildfire is spicy. All the draw you get will help you break parity and korvold is a beefy boi so he can get through wildfire and Destructive Force withoit dying.

New Akiri is interesting as she is a lower cmc and less restrictive Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale. To me that instantly makes her more palatable as Syr Gwyn is sooo expensive and you feel crushed if she gets removed quickly.

Forsaken Monument is immediately going into my Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer list. Beefing up all my Morphs and gaining 2 life for each one is fantastic. Plus it will help the deck finish games (one area where Kadena usually struggles).

The alternate art for Moraug is freaking sick!

Holy hell is Nahiri's Lithoforming great for lands matters decks! DemonDragonJ, being able to sac lands off this card is not a downside, it's a boon. Lord Windgrace/Korvold, Fae-Cursed King will certainly abuse the heck out of that card, and even my Mina and Denn, Wildborn list will gladly take this.

Jund fits into that type wheel house I will list a few of the well know commanders Old school Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Most are using Korvold, Fae-Cursed King now because he is such a big value engine.

Lord Windgrace was the one before Korvold showed up

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.
