Nerve_Atk on Dockside Mortuary Korvold

1 month ago

the_ouroboros sorry for not having a primer, this was a conceptual brew and takes a back seat to my Buried Alive Korvold Combos list, so I haven't taken the time to flesh it out any yet. The list has a few different means of winning. Dockside Extortionist + Temur Sabertooth is almost always plan A in Korvold, but we have also taken a path with this list that allows us to manually storm off while Aetherflux Reservoir is in play, or achieve infinite etbs/sacs and deaths/storm with Mortuary + Wild Cantor Skirk Prospector or Blood Pet whilst Korvold, Fae-Cursed King is in play, allowing us to win through Reservoir, Mayhem Devil Grapeshot Or Impact Tremors . There is a lot more fleshed out information in the

Hey, Goon squads like to extort and Pontiff of Blight 's extort is busted with Phyrexian mana :)

Consider moving Pontiff from the maybeboard to the main deck by cutting Ob Nixilis, Unshackled ? It's also a six drop and like Pontiff it can be a repeatable source of your opponents losing life, but unlike Pontiff your opponents have the choice to lose life to tutor. With Pontiff you control when and how much life your opponents are losing by casting spells and you also can gain a ton of life which is good with Aetherflux Reservoir .

The one thing your deck lacks is fast colorless mana from mana rocks. You want quick. Sol is great, but consider more? With the budget here Mana Vault and/or Basalt Monolith can fit. Either could replace Caged Sun and/or Tendrils of Corruption . Caged is fine, but I don't think at six mana it's needed here. Everflowing Chalice is also good because it can scale or cast it as a two drop it could replace Vampiric Link .

With only 17 creatures Crypt of Agadeem is not doing much. Consider cutting it for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Nykthos is another powerful outlet for black devotion. Gravecrawler and Carrion Feeder with Phyrexian mana is a loop to combo kill your opponents with Aetherflux Reservoir since you cast Gravecrawler from your graveyard. These two Zombies can also put a ton of counters on Krrik or Black Market . These Zombies and Aetherflux can also be part of a Doomsday pile.

Another enabler for Aetherflux with Phyrexian mana is Leshrac's Sigil since it can bounce itself back to your hand to loop cast it. It's also good with devotion as well as some hate for green. These three cards could replace Tendrils of Corruption , Exquisite Blood , Mortuary , Bloodchief Ascension . Mortuary has nice interaction with Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Bolas's Citadel , but I'm not sure that it's worth including just for this interaction.

I see Dead of Winter , but I don't see Snow-Covered Swamp s to fuel it. Cut Winter if you don't want to add Snow-Covered Swamps?

Good luck with your deck.

Wouldn't a countered creature spell still go to the graveyard because it was never actually on the battlefield?

Mortuary is still very cool.

My K'rrik is just kind of a "goodstuff" deck without any infinite combos, but I'm always looking to see what others are doing.

RNR_Gaming, I would say that Mortuary has a use. Imagine someone counters me playing Demonlord Belzenlok and I don't have recursion. Now I get another chance to play him.

Is Mortuary good outside of the combo? It looks like an interesting interaction with the citadel and sac outlet; but is it good without the peices.

I've thought about adding Yawgmoth's Will and maybe Immortal Servitude to get more recurring value from my low cost creatures.

I also have a similar deck built for multiplayer which has a combo using Bolas's Citadel + Mortuary + Death Cultist to drain your opponents' life totals.

The first phase of this deck had me playing cards like Mortuary or Haunted Crossroads but I eventually found out that I didn’t have enough creatures to warrant slots for that

I’m looking for more combos or lockdown effects to limit my opponents moves
