aznb01777 on Esix of Many Reflection

Ziabo I'm still in my draft phase lol, but with the mana ramps I hope it won't be an issue. I got a total of 17 mana ramps. My thoughts are if I can get a good counter off Mana Drain , Plasm Capture , and Spell Swindle to hit a boost for my mana ramp or big spells that have big board impact. Some cool synergy I'm going for is Awakening Zone with Sakura-Tribe Elder or Wood Elves with Esix on the board.

The beauty of Thantis is the perplexing open-endedness of the commander. I've had the most success & fun making it a mix of: monarch/courts, token spawning big-boys (on upkeep is my fav.), polymorph spells to trade tokens for bigs, card draw for little guys, & lifelink.

A few favorites: Toski, Bearer of Secrets , Ohran Frostfang , Oath of Druids , Kardur, Doomscourge , Clackbridge Troll , Awakening Zone , Moldervine Reclamation , Thieving Amalgam

Remove-Replace: For better Beatdowns... Butcher of Malakir- Siege Behemoth

Vulturous Zombie- Kamahl, Heart of Krosa

The Haunt of Hightower- Torgaar, Famine Incarnate

From Beyond- Awakening Zone <-You only have 1 eldrazi. Why not save 1 mana instead for the same token maker?

For the combo win... Savra, Queen of the Golgari-Swap in any card with Persist. You have Mikaeus, but no Triskelion/Ballista, so just use a persist creature with a blood artist effect. I'd recommend Rendclaw Trow since it's cheap, or Puppeteer Clique since it's fun as hell.

Sadistic Hypnotist- Korozda Guildmage

Sidisi, Undead Vizier- Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis

The way this combo works is detailed here https://edhrec.com/combos/bg/hogaak-korozda-phyrexian. Since you don't have Phyrixan Altar, you can't go infinite, but I think you'll like that more. It will still provide tons of death triggers or tokens, so you can use a blood artist or just swing in.

TheVectornaut on Human to Eldrazi Conversion

It looks like your breakpoint for Eldritch Evolution is at 3 mana, but the single copy of Gisela is the only creature you can tutor for at that point that costs more than the sacrificed creature. If you want Evolution to be the Birthing Pod for this deck, I'd suggest adding more threats that cost 4-5 mana. Fives are particularly valuable since they can themselves be sacced to find Bruna or Deceiver of Form . Sticking with the Eldrazi type, Emrakul's Hatcher , Kozilek's Channeler , and the popular Reality Smasher seem like they'd be the most effective. The world's your oyster if you don't mind running other creature types. Stormbreath Dragon , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Baneslayer Angel , and Thragtusk are some picks recommended by the internet as the best modern creatures on 5. If you prefer having only the biggest baddest threats in the 7-9 range, I'd cut Evolution entirely for more ramp in Cryptolith Rite / Citanul Hierophants , From Beyond / Awakening Zone , or really whatever other options you prefer. Another card I'd consider cutting is Kozilek's Return since it will wipe out all of your tokens (even after upgrading with Emrakul's Evangel ) unless you're lucky enough to also have Eldrazi Monument out. Maybe Mizzium Mortars could be your sweeper if that's what you're looking for. A final cut I'd make is the odd fifth copy of Game Trail . Unless that's a typo, you don't typically want to run more than 4 copies of nonbasics, even in casual. Plus, your deck looks like it could use more white and colorless mana sources anyway. An interesting option that jumped to my mind was Westvale Abbey  Flip since you already have a human token theme. Some other tribal picks that might fit are Champion of the Parish , Thalia's Lieutenant , and Mayor of Avabruck  Flip.

Let me know if you have any questions and good luck! (BTW, I'm not a great sideboard builder, but I do know eldrazi make use of Warping Wail and Oblivion Sower in addition to the more traditional hate artifacts.)

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.

Snogglesworth I absolutely agree, but I have to commit to the theme. Every time a new set comes out I check every card for new upkeep cards. Maybe in the future there will be more that create ramp.

As of right now Awakening Zone, Court of Bounty, From Beyond are the only true upkeep ramp.

And arguably, Aether Vial, As Foretold, and Braid of Fire also help this deck get ahead. Really the mana curve is so low, and you get SO SO SOOO many free creatures every upkeep with this deck that the ramp is not extremely necessary for casual play.

Snogglesworth Ancient Tomb, Awakening Zone, From Beyond, never miss land drop with Land Tax, almost never miss a land drop with Mirri's Guile.

Additonaly this deck isn't a typically Golos deck, and if I'm being honest I only cast golos about 7/10 times. The average cmc for the deck is 4.68 which is very low for the average Golos.

If I wanted to, I could add rocks but at the end of the day that breaks the theme of the deck.

Also Court of Bounty is a great ramp "upkeep" card too.
