Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper Discussion

The reason you get a deck is that there is no "the" in his name. Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper

I think your deck would be really benefit from putting Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper and Emrakul's Evangel in. Being able to sacrifice your stuff and get more creatures to sac out of it, specifically tokens with decent power, would help pump Kresh even more quickly. Sek'Kuar can also give you some boardwipe protection, or force multiple boardwipes, becuase he just replaces all your creatures when they die. I would replace Rakshasa Deathdealer with one of these, as I feel it just doesn't do enough in your deck. Another card I personally would remove is Necropolis Fiend because once again, I just don't think it does enough for your deck, and it seems like a bit of a nonbow because it reduces the creatures power to zero, meaning Kresh gets no benefit, and it forces you to remove cards from your graveyard which kind of takes away any chance for recursion. Final card I would add because I just remembered it as I was writing this is Gutter Grime. If you do a lot of mass sacrificing this thing can go crazy reallly fast, giving you an absurd amount of power for basically free.

Adding in Reassembling Skeleton and you’re all set for a budget infinite combo, (if you like) that will get Korvold to lethal damage to take someone out with commander damage, all you would need is a sac outlet, this would be a fairly solid combo as you don’t cast the skeleton from the yard, it’s an ability which you come across less counters for.
You could cut Sifter of Skulls for the plunderer, same mana coast but strictly better.
Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper wouldn’t be out of place in here too.
Hope this feedback was useful in some way :)

Deveret Tokens do indeed hit the grave before they cease to exist, so they work with abilities that trigger on creatures dying. If they didn't, the wording on Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper wouldn't need to include the word "nontoken", which is the only thing which stops his Graveborn tokens from replacing themselves when they die.

Under combos you stated that " Phyrexian Altar + Nether Traitor + Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper + e.g. Blood Artist is infinite life loss for all opponents." How is that possible? You have no way of recurring Nether Traitor because the tokens are not entering the graveyard. Is this just a error or am I not understanding something?

@TheSimikBOat: Thanks for your suggestions!
- Savvy Hunter : When Food tokens came out, I was reminded of my experience with Clue tokens in this deck, which was very underwhelming, so I didn't test any of the cards in here. But you sound convinced, so I will test it (and also Gilded Goose and Witch's Oven , which also seem kind of promising to me).
- Korvold, Fae-Cursed King : Yeah, I want to run him (maybe instead of Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ), but he's a little too expensive right now.
- Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper : I tried it when I still ran Bloodghast , Nether Traitor and Reassembling Skeleton and even then it did very little. Right now, I mostly only want to sac tokens... Fun fact: The first iteration of my Shadowborn Apostle deck ran Sek'Kuar as commander, which worked quite well, but then I made it Abzan...
