Orzhov Keyrune Discussion

superhuman21 on Hungry Karl

My recommendation would be swap out Orzhov Keyrune, Pristine Talisman,Underworld Connections. for a mana rock is expensive, especially if it only generates colorless or 1-2 colors. Underworld Connections would be alright in a golgari deck IMO, but here it is going to take away from your potential mana pool as you'll have to tap the land for a card instead of mana.

Just my thoughts

On a normal deck, I would usually say to put most swampwalk cards in your sideboard. But with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in your deck it actually helps you a lot keeping them in the main board. The only thing I would actually change now is your Orzhov Keyrune. They aren't helping that much as while most of the time you will have a Crypt Ghast out, and the mana the keyrune produces doesn't trigger the ability for the Crypt Ghast. While the creature part does go with your deck, it still isn't that good. I would replace them with a few tutors, maybe one Diabolic Tutor and one Diabolic Revelation. Other than that, everything is looking good to me.

Eternity Vessel will go well with Aetherflux Reservoir. Drogskol Reaver, Ivory Cup, Celestial Mantle and Kambul are all good cards for an Oloro Deck. With eternity vessel, the cup, and celestial mantle in play I can get 75-200 life all day unless my opponent is running a harsh deck like slivers.

Drop the Orzhov Cluestone and Orzhov Keyrune. They are both too costly for their mana production. Consider Tablet of the Guilds.

Other cards to consider Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Westvale Abbey  Flip, and Ghost Council of Orzhova.

These are just my recommendations based on playing Oloro as a commander.

My first thought was Wall of Limbs, but I see it in the maybe-board.

Sunbond is maybe one to consider.
Also Ajani's Pridemate might be too good to leave out, in this deck.

Night Market Lookout is only as good as your ability to tap him. If he can't attack he's a bit shit. Soul Warden instead maybe?.

I would lose Orzhov Keyrune and instead go forBontu's Monument and Oketra's Monument. Thery're good for fixing mana and creating abusable effects.

Greed seems to good not to put in, maybe lose Retreat to Hagra (will there be that much landfall?) Underworld Connections is a cheaper, and worse, version if need be.

Trespasser's Curse seems like fun.

Miraculous Recovery just for EOT returning Felidar Sovereign for a quick and easy win.

If you need to cut costs to get stuff in Scholar of Athreos might be a cheap substitute for something.

Bond of Agony maybe?

Blood Tribute is you have enough Vamps.

Mortify is quite versatile.

Those are my thoughts.

anything with extort that's at least a little good. Basilica Screecher, Kingpin's Pet, Treasury Thrull, Thrull Parasite or Pontiff of Blight

Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough

Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble

Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy

Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.

Contemplation, combo off!

Disciple of Griselbrand, or Disciple of Bolas let you convert a big karlov to something else

Honor the Fallen - on theme graveyard hate that's also a combat trick

Mastery of the Unseen this needs a lot of mana to be great, but maybe you'll get some good use out of it. It's kinda iffy though

Patron of the Kitsune and Righteous Cause are VIP's with karlov

Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white

Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov

Soldier of the Pantheon

Suture Priest

Vampiric Rites

Vizkopa Confessor

Wingmate Roc

Exsanguinate is good

Well of Lost Dreams and Alhammarret's Archive are nifty but expensive on the $budget$

Use all the life you gain for benefits, like card draw! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections

or recursion Phyrexian Reclamation

budget cuts might include, Ajani Goldmane, Lightning Greaves (this might be Swiftfoot Boots), Angelic Chorus

Some possible cuts

Rupture Spire, Shimmering Grotto, Transguild Promenade - two color decks don't need to slow down this much for mana fixing

Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander

Bond of Agony seems bad, maybe Exsanguinate

Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?

Doom Blade could be Go for the Throat if your meta/budget allows for it

Darksteel Ingot, Orzhov Cluestone, Orzhov Keyrune could be cut for a 2 mana rock, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Star Compass. Maybe one of those

Blind Hunter, Blood Tithe, Agent of Masks, Certain Death don't seem strong enough

You may also consider Keyrunes for ramp, like Orzhov Keyrune, Rakdos Keyrune, and Boros Keyrune. More crew with the ramp you already need.

Interesting take. This is very different from my Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control deck. I like it.

imo i'd say Fiend Hunter is superior to Avacynian Missionaries  Flip in regards to its effect with the singlular equipment in the deck

not totally sure what you feel like doing with your deck so I can't make too many suggestions about the deck other than probably cutting some lands for other cards and adding in more mana ramp since you have pretty much none, mana ramp is a bit hard in a deck that doesn't use green but there are some options

you could use the Soul Sisters Soul Warden Soul's Attendant and Auriok Champion but the last one is pretty pricey, they do give lifegain on all creatures entering the battlefield not just your own

i think you could replace Sigil of the Empty Throne with Angelic Accord since your deck is to gain life, it sort of utilizes it. You could also use an Archangel of Thune to weaponize lifegain, or use the Sanguine Bond +Exquisite Blood combo it might not be friendly but it isn't that bad

you could add in tutors:Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen is a decent card for 3 mana mid game Sorin, Grim Nemesis is fairly good here i'd think but better if it hits a higher cost card, i dont think he'd live long enough to pump enough value out though.

Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse can fix mana but in a 2 color not overly needed

Ghost Quarter + Flagstones of Trokair = 2 Plains tutor which isnt too bad i guess abet one is tapped

Gift of Estates, Land Tax i guess is technically ramp Knight of the White Orchid can be a solid card since someone's bound to have more lands

Artifact Land tutors: Armillary Sphere, Solemn Simulacrum, Expedition Map

i mean you could add in some mana rocks to give ramp like: Charcoal Diamond, Marble Diamond not very fast but mana ramp

not really mana rocks just cost reducers, still a bit slow though: Pearl Medallion, Jet Medallion

Slower monocolor rocks: Tooth of Ramos, Thunder Totem, Skull of Ramos not as good as commander's sphere or manalith

Guild Manarocks: Orzhov Cluestone, Orzhov Keyrune, Orzhov Signet

Colorless Mana: Obligitory Sol Ring then Dreamstone Hedron, Everflowing Chalice, Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Thought Vessel

not very easy on the wallet but solid rock here: Mana Crypt

Any color ones: Manalith, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Doubling Cube(doubles all the Mana you have for 2), Cryptolith Fragment  Flip(doesnt really flip though), Corrupted Grafstone, Gilded Lotus, Fellwar Stone

Hey berryjon, what do you think about the Keyrunes, e.g. Rakdos Keyrune, Orzhov Keyrune, etc. in comparison to the Monuments?
