Reassembling Skeleton Discussion

Good deck. Inquisition of Kozilek would be a better play than Duress in my opinion. Also, there's a lack of one drops here. Why not go with a turn 1 play of Gravecrawler or for a possible turn 2 play Reassembling Skeleton?

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.

Reassembling Skeleton is a nice backup creature in case they remove your commander

Eloniel Lurrus is alright, but I don't think any of the CMC < 2 permanents in the deck are worth recurring only once per turn. I already have Phyrexian Reclamation and the Reassembling Skeleton which do a better job. Massacre Wurm is still in the combos since unfortunately, right now I can't edit the description. Every time I save a new description, the editor deletes half of it. I've been waiting to see if it fixes itself, but it hasn't yet, so eventually, I'll have to get the admins' attention. I like Hell's Caretaker but it seems very slow and costly. Cards like that die quickly in my meta, and I don't like playing such slow cards.
sub780lime Personally, I like 1-drop fodder like Garrison Cat more than 2-drops like Tithe Taker. The extra abilities tacked onto two drop fodder don't interest me compared to the tokens they make on death. Since I'm mainly aiming for the tokens, I'd rather them be 1 less mana. That being said, I don't think I'll include the cat since Hunted Witness and Doomed Traveler have been enough.

Nice, one thing I might suggest is some more tutors to tutor up some of the combo pieces. The ones not in here already in black are: Booster Tutor to open a pack of Core Set 2019 for Reassembling Skeleton or a pack of Invasion or Fifth Edition for Initiates of the Ebon Hand or Bog Initiate, or Amonkhet for Embalmer's Tools, or the respective pack for any of the combo pieces, if you want to play casual and your playgroup allows silver-bordered cards. Also: Cruel Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Grim Tutor, or Rhystic Tutor. Also some possibilities for some card draw to get pieces of the combo are: Aladdin's Lamp, Book of Rass, and Conch Horn. This link has some more card draw. Ignore the multicolored cards as I forgot to exclude colors on the gatherer.

Here are some thoughts from me:
If you are moving towards more cards that drain your opponents out, then the new Bastion of Remembrance is great! Enchantments are more difficult to interact with than creatures. This makes it a more sticky win-con.
The one thing I worry about when looking at this list is how vulnerable Shirei is. He is your deck's engine so more protection for him might be helpful. You already have Greaves, but you might want one or two more pieces. Cards like Swiftfoot Boots, Imp's Mischief, Champion's Helm, or Kaya's Ghostform are all options.
Likewise, running cards that can still be effective without him (like Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton, or Tenacious Dead) might be useful. Each of those three cards can move in and out of your graveyard with-or-without Shirei. Plus, each of them go infinite with Phyrexian Altar and Pawn of Ulamog/Pitiless Plunderer if you are inclined to want to do that.

Nice suggestion valentin74, so I'll walk you through my thoughts:
The way I view Yahenni, Undying Partisan is as a sack outlet with the upsides of additional beatdown and being hard to remove, whereas Recruiter of the Guard would be a tutor, so it's a bit hard to compare directly.
But let's first check what the Recruiter could get: Combo pieces: Both Reassembling Skeleton or Nether Traitor and Pawn of Ulamog All drain effect creatures like Blood Artist Sack outlets Woe Strider and Carrion Feeder Card draw: Midnight Reaper, Grim Haruspex and Mentor of the Meek Stuff I can sack: Doomed Traveler and alike, and if our graveyard is full Hallowed Spiritkeeper.
So actually it seems like Recruiter is indeed a versatile tutor and a card that I should probably include. I am not sure what I am going to cut for it though. Probably either Yahenni or Woe Strider. This is a meta call on how many destroy all creature wipes you see, as Yahenni can survive those and get's more powerful in the process, giving a bit more beatdown. Strider has the upside of doing something more useful when sacking, coming with a token himself and the escape ability if we really need that sack outlet. For now I'll swap out Yahenni. Thank's for the suggestion!
