My recommendations :
I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.
MANA COST TOO HIGH
I would first add better ramp, better draw, potential Stax, tutors and then other win cons.
Verity Circle (good against dorks)
Plunge into Darkness (a good Impulse)
CONSULT COMBO Demonic Consultation
AD NAUSEAM COMBO Angel's Grace
Ad Nauseam (draw whole deck, can Windfall and make everyone die while AG means you can't lose
Heliod Walking Ballista
Rocks that produce at least three mana total (outlet is extort with blind obedience or crypt ghast) If have pristine Talisman gain infinite life, which is infinite draw with commander
Didn't look at landbase

Epicurus thanks for checking my deck man :D.
i really like Karador and i am trying always to improve him.
Beast Whisperer,Skullclamp,Audacious Thief,Oakhame Adversary,Mindblade Render,Yawgmoth, Thran Physician are all amazing draw engines. Sometimes i forget i have them and neglected to tell you to add them.
on that idea also add Guardian Project and Path of Discovery they are really amazing enchantments i had to cut them out because they costed 2 much. But i still like them.
Runic Armasaur believe it or not is the first to be swapped out when i find a replacement because he is too cirumstancial.
Finally i do love Syr Konrad, the Grim but my meta is too fast for that.I tried him and really like him but 5 mana is too much for the slot i wanted him for (protect my graveyard). I don't need his damage to end the game so i had to remove him.
Thanks for checkning my deck :D

Thanks for the upvote and comment shwanerz88! Mindblade Render is only in for the card draw as having card advantage is always key, however I am still testing it out and its better than Runic Armasaur in the current moment. Orcish Lumberjack has been meh when I tried it as it would be better in a lands build. As for Goblin Bombardment it generally is good but when used with Food Chain it doesn't become an outlet or its a dead card in hand, it's better for a Prossh deck.
Appreciate the look over!

Wishclaw Talisman > Scheming Symmetry you should never be helping someone in cedh with a tutor like Scheming. but wishclaw at least lest you pop off on your turn without someone tutoring a counterspell to stop you.
unless you add more discard synergy, i would cut Sire Of Insanity and Protean Hulk you don't have a consistent way to dump them in the gy to cheat their cost. i would even consider cutting Mikaeus too, as it is one of the more expensive ways to activate your persist combo.
and since you're going for the persist combo it looks like: Putrid Goblin is a decent plan B if murderous redcap is off the table. Grumgully, the Generous is probably the better replacement to mikaeus. and with that said, Goblin Recruiter becomes a great line to get your persist combo if Korvold is out. top to bottom: Dockside Extortionist, Vexing Shusher (if you need the protection), grumgully, Skirk Prospector, and putrid goblin or the redcap.
i highly recommend Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast just for some interactions. it's a good way to shoot rhystic study at the least, but you can protect your fairly fragile persist combo as well. unless you're magically playing in a meta without any blue, which for cEDH standards is absurd.
also some other cheap ways to draw cards is also something i noticed this deck missing, all you really have is library, dark confidant, and Korvold himself. decent add-ons are: Oakhame Adversary, Mindblade Render, Azra Oddsmaker, or Runic Armasaur
if you end up cutting all the top end (cmc 5+) cards out, you can also add in ad nauseum for a very strong draw power.

Very good looking list, I may take some tips from this and add them to my Prossh deck. Mindblade Render seems pretty bad in this deck though considering it is the only warrior. Orcish Lumberjack or Goblin Bombardment add additional sac outlets

What are people's experiences with Mindblade Render? Seems pretty random and meta specific (good against najeelas)?

I don't really follow your train of thought. What does the low amount of maindeck warriors (you left out Mindblade Render ) have to do with Oakhame Adversary?
More importantly, you kind of answered your own question: the fact that Adversary basically always costs 2 mana to cast is the big reason why it's so nuts. It's essentially another copy of Dark Confidant but with added upside. Efficiency is king. While I have strongly considered Raiders' Spoils , four mana at sorcery speed is kind of a turn off.
