Hi m8,

Very nice deck. A card like Arachnogenesis seems made for this deck. With Chatter on the field this really makes an ungodly amount of tokens. Speakin' of spiders, that reminds me: Arasta of the Endless Web, crazy good against any deck that likes slinging spells. Champion of Lambholt also seems very good for a deck that can generate this many tokens. Last but not least, I would really recommend Heroic Intervention to counter wipes against your token armies.

Good luck playing this; looks fun!

Kind regards,

Daedalus19876 Thank you for your feedback and the suggestions!

I definitely would consider Parallel Lives as well it’s brother Doubling Season , unfortunately they are not in my collection. :/

I like Arasta of the Endless Web and tested it in my Ghired, Conclave Exile Populate-Deck… but it turned out not that effective in our playgroup meta.

I alredy have an eye on Blight Mound in another deck but it hasn’t entered the Battlefield yet.

I love Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and have to find a spot for him. Which swap would you consider?

Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is an extraordinary strong card. I haven’t considered using him in this deck so far, but you’re right, i have tons of tokens which would be awesome fodder for him. Which card would tou cut for him?

Have you considered Parallel Lives or Second Harvest to ramp up your squirrel production? It stacks with your commander's effect. I'm also a fan of Arasta of the Endless Web and Blight Mound and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder as token producers which allow you to make squirrels too. Have you considered Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as a sac outlet for all of your ridiculous tokens? He's spectacular in that role...

This is truly a mishmash, but out of all your creatures the ones that jump out at me are the disproportionately high number of spiders. Spider tribal could be an interesting direction to move the deck in, although switching to Golgari or at least Jund would probably be necessary. Black gives you access to graveyard interaction that benefits cards like Hatchery Spider while also having a fair number of good spider cards. Some modern options for such a deck are Arasta of the Endless Web, Graverobber Spider, Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Nyx Weaver, Rotwidow Pack, Chainweb Aracnir, Twin-Silk Spider, Spider Spawning, Blex, Vexing Pest  Flip, Renowned Weaver, Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Obelisk of Urd, and Coat of Arms.

If you are more interested in staying red, one option is to focus on your combat tricks with cards that like being targeted. Silverfur Partisan and Zada, Hedron Grinder are a great pair for such a deck. Cheap buffs with bonus effects like Confront the Unknown and Expedite work well in such a shell, as do cards that care about having many creatures like Might of the Masses.

I love this! So glad to see Reef Worm and Arasta of the Endless Web getting some love. You've covered your bases pretty well for token generators, but if you have the extra cash Doubling Season or Parallel Lives would be a great addition. I don't normally suggest expensive cards, but they have major utility in this deck.

Some other things you might consider are Repudiate / Replicate for a quick hit (in place of Spitting Image maybe?), or Double Major to double-down on a single cast while it's on the stack. Honestly, Mystic Reflection would be great. It can turn each of the tokens coming in on a turn into copies of a big dude instead of 1/1s for example. Or another token generator already out and therefore get multiple triggers later.

Whatever you choose, this deck looks like fun. Good job!

Hey, good start on a budget.

Cards in the maybeboard that are worth adding:

  • Whisper, Blood Liturgist
  • Altar's Reap
  • Costly Plunder
  • Solemn Simulacrum
  • Fleshbag Marauder
  • Apprentice Necromancer
  • In Garruk's Wake
  • Tainted Wood

Possible others:

  • Erebos, Bleak-Hearted
  • Smothering Abomination
  • Acidic Slime

Some budget cards, $1-$2, most are less than $1, at TCGPlayer to consider adding:


More ramp is good with Korvold because it can help to cast him faster and then it can be sac fodder to trigger him.

Some budget lands to consider adding:

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, well planned out strategies on a budget. Nice Diabolic Intent :)

Consider Priest of Forgotten Gods and more repeatable token sources? If you can fuel Priest then she's over powered in multiplayer Commander and a great way to grow Korvold and draw. Priest makes insane value with Korvold since for no mana, just sacing two creatures, you make all opponents sac a creature and lose 2 life, you draw three cards, make two black mana and give Korvold two +1/+1 counters. Priest wants a robust package of cards that are repeatable token sources.

Chandra's second 0 loyalty ability + Priest is a combo to be able to activate Priest repeatedly on your turn. The Elementals Chandra creates are saced at your end step meaning they will trigger Korvold and they don't have to attack.


You can speed up game play by adding more one and two drops that have interaction with Korvold or can be reliable ramp to cast him quicker.

Another way to speed up game play is the reduce the number of lands that will always ETB tapped such as Gruul Guildgate .

On a budget Savage and Ancestry are exceptions, but they can make one color of the three Jund colors, that's worth it.

I offer more advice, including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.
