Talisman of Resilience Discussion

Aliensibob on Jarad and the Lhurgoyf

My suggestions using only cards in your maybeboard.

If Ob Nixilis Reignited's only purpose is card draw, out for Guardian Project

That's 1 more out than in so you should be down to 99.

Ugrades using cards not in maybeboard.

Kodama's Reach in for Golgari Signet, Circuitous Route in for Fellwar Stone, Far Wanderings in for Wayfarer's Bauble - net same mana without threshold, but with it a lot better.
Solemn Simulacrum in for Artisan of Kozilek- Artisan is nice but so expensive, while the sad robot is ramp, card draw, and sac fodder.

Death's Presence in for Nyx Weaver - You don't lose any power for sacking your creatures.

Crucible of Worlds in for Whispersilk Cloak

Illusionist's Bracers in for Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Archfiend of Despair in for Boneyard Wurm- have to cut one of this effect at this point, Wound Reflection in for Liliana, Death's Majesty - could take out the other Lily, but her best case scenario is better.

These three cards together with Jarad allow you to sac a 5 power creature to deal 40 damage. Activate Jarac(sac creature is a cost)+Bracers double = 10 to each opponent. Archfiend and Reflection trigger, first deals 10, second 20 for 40 total damage.

Be careful about putting the Cauldron out too early, since it prevents Death Triggers.

Underrealm Lich + Gitrog = draw almost entire deck, since they trigger off each other.

Underrealm Lich will prevent you from decking as it replaces the card draw.

Hey, you're welcome.

You want to try to limit the amount of high mana cost cards (four drops or higher) you have in your deck.

These are all better high mana cost cards then Brass's Bounty . Bounty makes treasures, but that's all it does and it costs seven mana. There's better cards for less mana that make treasures. Bounty makes treasures equal to the amount of lands you have therefore you can't even ramp into Bounty with nonland sources such as mana rocks or mana dorks.

You don't need Butcher of Malakir if you have Dictate of Erebos . Butcher is seven mana redundancy (the same thing) which is too much. If you didn't have Dictate then Butcher would be fine. There's too many five drops here especially since Korvold is a five drop and it's the five drop you want to cast more then the rest. The other five drops that are worth keeping are:

I'm not a fan of Revel I would cut it because I think treasures are better to sac and make mana or to grow Korvold and draw then keeping ten of them on the battlefield hoping to win with Revel.

Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a good tutor, consider more tutors? Diabolic Intent is worth clearing $10 to add. It makes you sac a creature before you can tutor which is has synergy with the sac theme of Korvold. Consider cutting Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip for Intent? Rites is a fine card, but for your deck it's not better than Intent since Intent can tutor directly for Dockside Extortionist .

Eternal Witness is great with Intent and Temur Sabertooth . Witness can recur Intent letting you cast it again. Sabertooth can bounce Witness back to your hand to cast it again and recur Intent or something else. Having the ability to recur any card is very helpful when the strategy with Korvold is to sac your permanents. To make room in the budget for $5 Witness consider cutting $6 Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest ?

Because Dockside Extortionist is so good with Korvold then having other tutors that can get him are helpful.

These are good budget creature tutors. Evolution goes with the sac theme since you sac a creature before you tutor for another one and put it onto the battlefield. Signal can tutor for three different creatures and then randomly you put one into your hand. Empath can tutor for Prossh or Avenger. Summons can tutor for both Extortionist and Sabertooth.

Korvold is five mana and you kind of want him on the battlefield before you start sacing permanents to get the value. The problem is you need more ramp to do this. More early game ramp is good with Korvold; it can be used to cast him faster and then ramp permanents can be sac fodder for his ability. The nice thing about Korvold is even if you all draw are ramp and nothing else it's fine because ramp lets you cast him faster and then the ramp or lands can used to sac to grow him and draw.

One drop mana dorks are some of the best cards for ramp in Commander.

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon. Better to view the Command Zone as entertainment not as an information source for making decks. Those guys don't know how to make good decks. They know how to promote the latest thing that Wizards is selling and they do that well.

There's several budget lands to consider adding to upgrade the manabase.

Lands to consider cutting:

  • Golgari Guildgate
  • Gruul Guildgate
  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Jungle Hollow
  • Rugged Highlands
  • Rocky Tar Pit

With Korvold and green I suggest adding lots of ramp because the ramp can help to play Korvold faster then be used as fodder to sac for his ability. One drop mana dorks are budget and are very good when using one of them to ramp into Korvold since it gives you something to sac.

More mana rocks are also helpful ramp that can also be sac fodder after getting Korvold on the battlefield.

Creatures who can reanimate themselves can be repeatable sac fodder for Korvold.

Ramunap Excavator lets you play a land from your graveyard which can be another repeatable source of sac fodder letting you use a land to sac rather than another permanent. Prossh, Skyraider of Kher is a budget big creature that can create a lot of sac fodder for Korvold or just be another flying threat.

If these other suggestions interest you then I can give more advice about what cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.

  1. I suggest including some Xerox spells. Consider Ponder and Preordain -- one mana to dig past what you don't need to what you do is a really good rate. Brainstorm is also great, though I'd put in an off-color fetch or two (eg. Windswept Heath ) before I ran Brainstorm . The shuffle effects will keep you from getting stuck with cards you don't need on top of your deck.

  2. I feel I should inform you that Leovold, Emissary of Trest is mega-banned in EDH. Depending on your playgroup, you may be able to run it; but most playgroups will not be alright with him.

  3. I think you may be better off running talismans ( Talisman of Creativity , Talisman of Dominance and/or Talisman of Resilience ) than signets. Also be aware than artifact ramp is generally worse than dork-ramp, like your Birds of Paradise . Consider running some of the following: Elves of Deep Shadow , Deathrite Shaman , Arbor Elf , Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Bloom Tender and/or Fyndhorn Elves . One-mana enchantment ramp is good too -- consider Wild Growth or Utopia Sprawl . These come down turn one, as opposed to turn two (like most of the best artifact ramp would).

  4. If you do cut your artifact-ramp for dork-ramp (I suggest you do), you can run something like Collector Ouphe to hose opponents without hosing yourself.

Good luck!
