hkhssweiss Yeah, Korvold has become my 2nd favorite deck to play with. He sits just below Breya, so I have a hard time deciding which one to plop down at a table when I play with my main play group or at the LGS.

I chose to walk the path of the tokens, and I really like it. I mainly aim to abuse them through permanents like Purphoros, God of the Forge or play them into spot removal with Attrition to remove flyers and swing through with the beats.

Of course, they mainly become fodder for the mighty leader or become mulched down into basic essence through Ashnod's Altar for added spells or to surprise someone that opts not to block him :)

Also, since you're using polukranos for sniping creatures maybe add Attrition to get one more kill out of him.

If a card like Dictate of Erebos or Gatekeeper of Malakir states player must sacrifice a creature, can that be fulfilled if I sacrifice a creature to pay a cost such as from Attrition Fling or Culling Dais ?

Thanks

Thanks for the comments!

bushido_man96 - I do already have Conjurer's Bauble in the list, but I forgot about Urza's Bauble. It's probably better than Ichor Wellspring in this build. I'll definitely swap those. Tangle Wire is interesting, but I am not really into playing mana denial type stax.

Daedalus19876 - Good point on Sheoldred. I just love the card so much haha. A lot of my removal package can hit multiple permanent types which is why I didn't feel the need for more specific removal, but I do have a Force of Vigor sitting around so I can see about adding it. Thornbite Staff is basically a board wipe with Glissa on the battlefield due to her deathtouch. Viridian Longbow is another option with her. I've seen Ashnod's Altar + Grave Pact + Hex Parasite in Glissa before, but not Attrition + Ornithopter. I'll have to consider it.

Without reanimation, Sheoldred, Whispering One seems bad. Your removal package isn't bad, but I'd highly recommend Force of Vigor and Nature's Claim to handle artifacts and enchantments. Vampiric Tutor is also awesome if you can afford it.

I've also seen some Glissa lists run Attrition + Ornithopter as a lock combo.

I'm curious what Thornbite Staff is for, I feel like that's a potential cut.

I agree with the above suggestion to run the Baubles.

Hope this helps!
