Ramunap Excavator Discussion

Playing lands like Raging Ravine might benefit you. If it dies, it triggers Omnath. Then you can play it from the graveyard via your Ramunap Excavator or Crucible of Worlds. Wakeroot Elemental? Liege of the Tangle? War Elemental? Vastwood Zendikon? Koth of the Hammer looks interesting.

TriusMalarky: Having fetches in the graveyard is not a bad thing.
Green has Ramunap Excavator in addition to Crucible. It also has Mirri's Guile and Sylvan Library which act similar to Sensei's. And then there's all of the landfall effects and cards like Titania, Protector of Argoth and Splendid Reclamation.
White has cards like Sun Titan which, if you're playing mono white then you want as much ability to consistently hit land drops as possible.
Black and Blue both have a slew of delve cards and eating a land to play Dig Through Time seems like a solid play.
Not every mono colour deck wants to run fetches, if you're running stax yourself or are used to playing against it, then it seems bad to crack a fetch into an Aven Mindcensor where you don't have to. Or to play an early fetch into a Blood Moon. But that doesn't mean that they don't have their place.
As for the reason we don't see a lot of fetches in mono colour decks (which aren't mono green lands based decks) is that typically the fetches sit in a price point between casual where stax isn't generally a thing and competitive where stax and even one shot stax effects like Aven Mindcensor very much are a thing. i.e. casuals don't want to pay for them and competitive decks don't want to be hit by stax. Yes, this is an overgeneralisation however I also don't think it's wrong (though I'm sure there are other factors than just this).

Bojuka Bog provides great graveyard synergy without affecting synergy. Great for multiplayer.
Sire of Stagnation is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.
I like Sylvan Ranger over Sakura-Tribe Elder in its slot. If you're milling yourself, pulling 2 lands into your hand is better than 1 to me. I played a ton of Dredgevine in Modern over the years, so I appreciate this kind of acceleration.
Ramunap Excavator lets you play lands from your graveyard, which could help build a board state from the graveyard.
Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will help you bounce creatures to further abuse ETB effects.

I've always thought that The Gitrog Monster was a cool card to play in commander, and this deck does it that justice. Ramunap Excavator would be a good addition if you can find something else to take out. Also, you can add your companion to your deck list by putting it in your sideboard and typing star CMPN star after it. Nice deck!

Hey, nice start and base. Several good cards and interactions here.
Some interesting lower mana cost card interactions for repeatable sac with Korvold that are within the budget:
Invasion and Zone create a token that you can sac each turn when you attack with Korvold. Skeleton and Champion can be a repeatable creature to sac since they can reanimate themselves for two mana. Excavator lets you sac a land which you can play from your graveyard. A repeatable token/creature to sac each turn also good with Evolutionary Leap for one mana to put a creature into your hand.
I'm a big fan of one drop mana dorks when playing so much green and with Korvold. Dorks are ramp to play Korvold faster and then can be sac fodder. Goose is fine, but consider more?
Lumberjack is good with 10x Forests; it can be a repeatable source of sac that also makes mana. It makes it so a single Forest can equal four mana (combination of green/red) since you can tap the Forest to make one green mana before you sac it with Lumberjack. It's good with Ramunap Excavator since then you can play the Forest from your graveyard.
Fierce Empath is a budget creature tutor to get a threat such as Prossh, Skyraider of Kher or Broodmother. After tutoring Empath can be sac fodder. Prossh is powerful with Korvold since it can make a large amount of Kobolds who can be sac fodder and Prossh is also a sac outlet. For six mana if Prossh sacs all the Kobolds created can equal six +1/+1 counters on Korvold and draw six cards. You can even pay more than six mana to cast Prossh to create more than six Kobolds.
Could improve the manabase with some budget lands:
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Savage Lands
- Llanowar Wastes
- Karplusan Forest
- Cinder Glade
- Smoldering Marsh
- Jund Panorama
- Ash Barrens
Good luck with your deck.

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, The Gitrog Monster, Ramunap Excavator, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Tireless Tracker, Wayward Swordtooth, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Evolution Sage and Korvold, Fae-Cursed King all go very well well with this commander. Additional land drops and pay offs for playing more lands in a turn makes this commander shine.
