Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest Discussion

NV_1980 Thanks for the suggestions! I feel like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed plays the same role as Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest in terms of persist combo, and mike would otherwise never do anything since everything else will have counters on it when it dies.

Phyrexian Altar is definitely worth adding, the only reason I havent is because I dont have one right now

Flavor aside, I think you should cut the big Eldrazi (aside from card: It That Betrays, and maybe Spawnsire of Ulamog ) and focus instead on going wide with Eldrazi/Sliver tokens to take advantage of the fact that the Slivdrazi only gives out one Annihilator 1 per person. If so, token makers to consider: Sliver Hive , Birthing Boughs , Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Hanweir, the Writhing Township 's components (Garrison is pretty useless but Battlements is decent since you want to attack for Annihilator), From Beyond , Growth Spasm

Also Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest to take advantage of sac triggers alongside of "It..."

Hivestone for redundancy, maybe Arcane Adaptation too

Devoid rewards: Tomb of the Spirit Dragon , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , All Is Dust , Ravnica at War

Maybe Ghostflame Sliver for devoid redundancy

Thoughts (Not things which should automatically be included; but things to consider.);

  1. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed -->Redundancy for Grumgully
  2. The Gitrog Monster -->Additional Lands for Turn but on top of that a free sacrifice/Korvold trigger each turn and synergizes SUPER well with fetches.
  3. Tendershoot Dryad -->pretty damn good token producer and potential wincon
  4. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest -->Makes your board get out of hand VERY quickly.
  5. Squandered Resources -->kinda speaks for itself.
  6. Harrow , Crop Rotation , Scapeshift , Splendid Reclamation , Khalni Heart Expedition -->Ramp and draw, what's not to love?
  7. Journey to Eternity  Flip-->Considering the number of sac outlets we are looking to run, this card quickly becomes a good one per turn re-animator.
  8. In my mind this may be a deck which wants to go a little heavier on multiple lands per turn with Azusa, Oracle, Gitrog and Exploration. It allows a focus on using fetches to trigger Korvold while also generating value with things like Field of the Dead or Strip Mine. Maybe keep

It may be a bit pricey to get the cards now but If you can come across a Meren Commander Precon Meren of Clan Nel Toth & Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest are excellent additions to any sacrifice deck. Feel free to check out my Jund Dragon Prossh here for more ideas Prossh, Skyraider of my Friends

Hey, you're welcome.

You want to try to limit the amount of high mana cost cards (four drops or higher) you have in your deck.

These are all better high mana cost cards then Brass's Bounty . Bounty makes treasures, but that's all it does and it costs seven mana. There's better cards for less mana that make treasures. Bounty makes treasures equal to the amount of lands you have therefore you can't even ramp into Bounty with nonland sources such as mana rocks or mana dorks.

You don't need Butcher of Malakir if you have Dictate of Erebos . Butcher is seven mana redundancy (the same thing) which is too much. If you didn't have Dictate then Butcher would be fine. There's too many five drops here especially since Korvold is a five drop and it's the five drop you want to cast more then the rest. The other five drops that are worth keeping are:

I'm not a fan of Revel I would cut it because I think treasures are better to sac and make mana or to grow Korvold and draw then keeping ten of them on the battlefield hoping to win with Revel.

Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a good tutor, consider more tutors? Diabolic Intent is worth clearing $10 to add. It makes you sac a creature before you can tutor which is has synergy with the sac theme of Korvold. Consider cutting Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip for Intent? Rites is a fine card, but for your deck it's not better than Intent since Intent can tutor directly for Dockside Extortionist .

Eternal Witness is great with Intent and Temur Sabertooth . Witness can recur Intent letting you cast it again. Sabertooth can bounce Witness back to your hand to cast it again and recur Intent or something else. Having the ability to recur any card is very helpful when the strategy with Korvold is to sac your permanents. To make room in the budget for $5 Witness consider cutting $6 Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest ?

Because Dockside Extortionist is so good with Korvold then having other tutors that can get him are helpful.

These are good budget creature tutors. Evolution goes with the sac theme since you sac a creature before you tutor for another one and put it onto the battlefield. Signal can tutor for three different creatures and then randomly you put one into your hand. Empath can tutor for Prossh or Avenger. Summons can tutor for both Extortionist and Sabertooth.


Korvold is five mana and you kind of want him on the battlefield before you start sacing permanents to get the value. The problem is you need more ramp to do this. More early game ramp is good with Korvold; it can be used to cast him faster and then ramp permanents can be sac fodder for his ability. The nice thing about Korvold is even if you all draw are ramp and nothing else it's fine because ramp lets you cast him faster and then the ramp or lands can used to sac to grow him and draw.

One drop mana dorks are some of the best cards for ramp in Commander.

multimedia Hi, thanks for your answer and thanks for your help with lands, but I have few questions First, why do u considering to cut Brass's Bounty , I think its fit this deck nicely, it can be a good mana for next turns and/or End game card combined with Revel in Riches , and i really like Butcher of Malakir so i don't think to cut this card, because it's like creature version of Dictate of Erebos Second, thanks for showing that Temur Sabertooth combo :) Third, Half of these cards from Korvold bravler deck, so I considering to change some of them with other cards and ofc lands :D. So I thinking to add - Bolas's Citadel I think it's really fit Korvold - Death Cloud for wiping board - Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest I just found that card and I really like that card, you can make your all token creatures to real deal and you get double counters on Korvold - Sylvan Safekeeper I think this card is a great way to keep Korvold alive - Bloodspore Thrinax I'am not sure for this, but it can be nice played with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest to create a massive token army And what do you think about these cards : Mitotic Slime , God-Eternal Bontu , Open the Graves

Thanks again for your help! Sorry for bad English (not my native language)

I recommend trying out Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest . He can get your board state out of control in a hurry.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is a persist combo piece in the command zone, I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned yet. I have not really focused on it for my Mazi deck, but the combo is available just in case.

Using Mazi in Karador is probably best if you just wanna combo though.
