Dictate of Erebos Discussion

To stay more in black, I would consider some sort of vampire sacrifice, counters, and/or lifedrain strategy. Your black cards that could work well in such a deck would be Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Embodiment of Agonies , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Mortician Beetle , Souls of the Faultless , Castigate , Disentomb , Gerrard's Verdict , Revival / Revenge , Despark , and Grim Return . Most of the other black cards are at least playable as well. The only two I'd cut in most circumstances are Underworld Dreams and In Garruk's Wake . The former needs more build-around while the latter just costs too much to be a consistent boardwipe.
Cards I'd look at adding for such a build might be Gatekeeper of Malakir , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Sangromancer , Dictate of Erebos , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Victim of Night , Indulgent Aristocrat , Pawn of Ulamog , Grim Haruspex , Silversmote Ghoul , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Malakir Cullblade , Blood Artist , Urge to Feed , Feast of Blood , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Archangel of Thune , Cruel Celebrant , Drana's Emissary , Indulging Patrician , Malakir Bloodwitch , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanctum Seeker , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Pious Evangel Flip.

Pikobyte From the few games ive played so far, deck seems pretty control-y, with Butcher of Malakir and Dictate of Erebos out, can pretty much boardwipe as long as i have some tokens or something. Having Spore Frog and Siren Stormtamer out can stop most things from what ive seen.
As for budget, I might not be able to afford some of the more really expensive cards but i have a bit of pocket change. On my list to add i have Caustic Caterpillar , Buried Alive and i thinking of adding Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools as well. any other suggestions?

BlackGtitan Those are great suggestions! I think I will add Triskelion . I originally had Dictate of Erebos , but I started lowering the curve a bit. With Yawgmoth's ability to kill creatures I found that often my opponents have a hard time keeping creatures out so I got rid of it for creatures that combo/tutors. Thanks for taking the time to look over the list and comment!

This looks good! I might suggest Triskelion as it would be good in this and becomes an alternative win with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . Maybe a Dictate of Erebos to double up on the "I sack, you sack" and death triggers. Otherwise really nice build with lots of synergy.
Check out my Deck as well, The Good Dr., as you're running a lot of the same stuff and maybe get some more ideas!

Your deck looks like it is off to a great start! The first commander deck I ever built was a Korvold deck and I've been playing with Korvold for a while. Personally, I think (with the way you've built this deck) that Tergrid, God of Fright Flip is pointless in here, with the overwhelming amount of potential from Tergrid I think that there should be more discard effects and effects that force your opponents to sacrifice their stuff to take complete advantage of her. More effects like Dictate of Erebos and Plaguecrafter . I suggest this because these kinds of effects are super powerful in their own right and Tergrid makes them even more powerful. If I were forced to build Korvold again with a different strategy then I would go with the discard and opponent sacrifice effects. If you would like to look at my own current build of Korvold then here is the link Korvold Sac Deck. Take a moment to read my description of my deck and maybe that can help you out some too.

Yeah, teysa is a lot of fun. Win or lose, I always enjoy playing this deck.
As for your suggestions.
I will check out your deck when I get a chance. Thanks again for the suggestions.

To your point, I definitely appreciate that you're going "budget" with it. That's the very reason why I built it. Our playgroup is trying to stay with $200-400 deck prices.
So this deck was a perfect starting point that I could buff up just a bit (it was already really strong and overhwhelming with tokens!).
Honestly, I just dont know what I would take out and replace.
Any ideas on what else I could cut to make room for the last few additions? Thanks!

With my playgroup in particular I've realized that for this deck to really excel, it needs a bit more control/removal.
I added the tutor cards (Vampiric, Demonic) to help find those needed cards.
Also was going to add Cryptic Command to tap down a player and try to swing out for the win
