Poly_raptor on Korvold's Conundrum

If you’re sacrificing creatures maybe adding Pitiless Plunderer in to go with Pawn of Ulamog could be helpful, when you sav the token for ramp they’ll trigger Korvold as he doesn’t specify nontoken.

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?

Man $10 budget is really challenging! Kudos to you SynergyBuild. How about one for Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper ?

Really love the deck (like all the Shattergang Brothers decks that I see).

Here I have some suggestions based on my own takes on the deck:
