Witch's Oven Discussion
4 days ago
I meant it as tokens that are not creatures, like battle-axe copies, treasures, clues, even food tokens (but that means only Turn into a Pumpkin and Witch's Oven and I wouldn't play them tho :S) since most boardwipes kill creatures, but not other things. However if your meta runs stuff like Austere Command, Cleansing Nova etc safe is even more relative.
P.S. Apparently chat is an option for premium users (which I'm not) so I'm sorry for the late response :S

Dont forget infinite ETB, infinite life, and opponents losing infinite life in the same combo:

Witch's Oven- Good, but we could go faster!
Bloodsoaked Altar- Way too many hoops to be good? I want to win by casting 6-mana spells.
Devils' Playground- This is too expensive to not do anything on it's own. 6-mana makes win.
Blood for Bones- There are better methods of creature type recursion to run this deck on. Try on some of my lovely favorites below.
Whisper, Blood Liturgist- 4-mana, doesn't do anything. If it survives a round, you get revive a dude. I'd rather just revive a dude right now.
Syr Konrad, the Grim- Better for mill-type decks. Would be a keeper if you had an infinite loop though.
Predator Dragon- Can't argue that this isn't one of the better win cards in your deck, but I think this is the type of card that spells doom if you draw it on E.
Poison-Tip Archer- A little redundancy isn't bad, reach and deathtouch are great, too expensive CMC for the deck. You want your stuff like this to be cheap.
Living Hive- You should win if you have 8 mana. This is the type of card you cheat into play by playing a different deck.
Hissing Iguanar-Put that thing back where it came from or so help me. I think we can do better than this.
From Toilet Paper Horde:
Dockside Extortionist- Haven't dropped mine on the table yet, but I've noted several occasions this card would net me 6-12 mana. (especially when Kurt plays).
Phyrexian Reclamation- I think this just belongs here.
Phyrexian Altar- ($18 at this point, we'll check back in a few weeks/months/years).
What to Loot WTSHTF:
Viscera Seer - Think of it as a sac engine and not a 1-drop.
Sakura-Tribe Elder- Is perfect ramp for deck?
Anger- Haste means punch them now, what's not to love?
Rhythm of the Wild- Think of this as enabling a big punch. Tempo!
Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin- Just a good stand alone. Sometimes it just eats removal for your win cons which is hilarious to watch.
Siege-Gang Commander- Like, one of my favorite red cards, fits right on in.
Veil of Summer- Basically prevents you from the classic ?Does it Resolve? dilemma.
Heroic Intervention- Wrath of Who?
Dark Ritual- I would like to cast all of these spells early. All of them.
Krenko's Command- Just fast and easy. Good for fodder, refill, combo, etc.
Dread Return- Three other creatures for the one you need right now (and can cast it from graveyard wtf).
Maelstrom Pulse- Target Sol rings to pass the salt back around.
Vraska, Relic Seeker- Surprisingly effective casting pattern with your commander.
(((((Various Expensive Lands))))) PURCHASE LAND YOU PEASANT! :wink:

It's nice to see a Korvold deck that isn't going full cEDH into Food Chain.
You have a bit of a token sub-theme going so maybe some token doublers like Parallel Lives or the criminally expensive Doubling Season would be good. Plus Parallel Lives/Doubling Season + Clock of Omens + Cauldron Familiar + Witch's Oven is a hilarious infinite combo.
Also, Artifact Mutation might be a solid removal spell that provides fodder.

The deck looks good but it is too slow for the meta. Aggro decks are probably going to destroy you (especially mono red) and you are very vulnerable to board wipes making the white/blue control a hard matchup as well.
I would personnaly cut all 4 copies of Nightveil Sprite because it is way too slow for little upside.
An interesting idea would be to add 3 copies of Cauldron Familiar, 4 Witch's Oven and 4 Emry, Lurker of the Loch. You only need 1 cat in the graveyard to keep sacrificing it to the oven, emry is a very good card that does what the deck wants and can get the oven back from the graveyard and the oven/cat combo is very good against aggro. The cauldron also as other upsides like preventing your creatures from being exiled from banishing light (for the shepherd). It is just an idea though, it might be bad because emry is also quite a slow card and the cauldron and cat doesn't synergise very well with the rest of the deck apart from energizing with themselves. I think it is worth a try though.
Also I think Ashiok, Dream Render is worth considering as well. Oh and Doom Whisperer can be an insane finisher, if you surveil for a long time with Creeping Chill and probably kill them if you have Devourer of Memory in play (instant speed removal would be a disaster though).
That being said I really like the idea of the deck and been thinking about building something similar for a while.

-1 Teysa, -1 ayara, -4 gutterbones, -1 corpse knight, -1 woe strider, -1 gray merchant, -1 nightmare shepherd
Reasoning: Having 4 counts of any legendary creature in a deck can get you into trouble, if you can avoid it and still keep the deck running well, do it. I think you'll also be surprised at how fast the lifegain and damage add up from cat/oven when you have either cruel celebrant/corpse knight in play.
Example: Opponent attacks
1) block with cat preventing damage 2) sac cat with oven in response (makes food) 3) cat dying triggers celebrant (+1 life, -1 opponents life) 4) replay cat using created food (+1 life, -1 opponents life) 6) corpse knight triggers from cat re-entry (-1 opponents life)
You have now blocked all damage, gained two life, did 3 damage to your opponent, spent zero mana, and all this happened during their attack phase.
The cat also synergizes very well with teysa, whereas gutterbones wouldn't have that extra trigger. It's worth a shot to playtest this stuff at the very least.
The seraphs of the scale would do amazing things both for death triggers (celebrant, teysa) and would leave you with a board presence even after a board wipe (2 flyers at that).
Other cards to think about:
-Liliana, Dreadhorde General (excellent synergies with most of your deck, her "both players sac 2" ability would do a LOT in your deck, including gaining you life, doing damage to opponent, and getting additional draw triggers from teysa)
-Command the Dreadhorde (just don't kill yourself! Not sure if your deck has enough lifegain to support this, but it might)
-Basilica Bell-Haunt (does wonders on its own, but amazing with nightmare shepherd and the additional devotion for gray merchant)
Hope this helps in some way!

I think this would be better as a more aggro deck, Dreamshaper Shaman is nice but honestly is way off curve. Could cut him and add in something like Witch's Oven and then cut the land down because the highest cmc would be 3. Also adding in Gallia of the Endless Dance would help with the pace; also helps Blood Aspirant which could go to 4 of if you went for a more aggro build.
