Hello friend! I have some suggestions! I had way too much time today, so here you go.

Relatively cheap, potent, and just perfect upgrades.

This bit is, of course, focused on making as many treasures as your board can bear.

Great, now you have all of these treasures, now what are you going to do with them?

  • Frogmite, Lens Flare, Scale of Chiss-Goria, Tooth of Chiss-Goria, Mycosynth Golem, Slag Strider, Furnace Dragon, and Myr Enforcer are all notable cards you could add, since they pretty much become free after a while, though mostly pretty useless.

  • Forsworn Paladin is pretty good token generation early game, but really shines with the second ability where it can instantly punish anyone blocking or attacking you recklessly.

  • Marionette Master is going to pack a punch.

  • Dargo, the Shipwrecker is super cheap for a 7/5 with trample.

  • Enraged Giant, Freejam Regent, Battle at the Bridge, Saheeli's Directive, Herald of Anguish, and Organic Extinction are all pretty solid additions, since they don’t make you sacrifice anything in exchange for it.

  • Ruthless Technomancer has a million combos with (like Dockside Extortionist+sac outlet) and is just pretty good on its own.

  • Leonin Elder is just one life, but when you’re playing a treasure deck, that one life will definitely add up.

  • Underhanded Designs is a murder or a poke engine, which is very snazzy.

  • Glaze Fiend is pretty scary, considering that it has trample.

  • Dragonspark Reactor could be a bit of removal in your back pocket or your wincon.

  • Arcbound Crusher’s design team didn’t anticipate just how many artifacts I was planning on throwing onto the field.

  • Professional Face-Breaker is just like Grim Hireling, in that it makes treasure tokens, but more importantly, it gives you something else. You get a load of impulse draw, which is really nice when you have loads of mana.

  • Magda, Brazen Outlaw is just an artifact tutor, really. Though, there are plenty of treasure loving dragons you could also fish for. (:

  • Kalain, Reclusive Painter loves treasures, giving everyone big buffs.

  • Swashbuckler Extraordinaire can give anything that might be sensitive to dying double strike for a big final push. That, or just give one big boy double strike.

  • Their Number is Legion gets you lots of life and lots of tokens.

  • Necron Overlord is just a worse Ghirapur, but it’s still gonna hurt.

  • Street Urchin is the same idea as the above.

  • Armix, Filigree Thrasher could be some annoying removal, especially early game.

  • Hellkite Igniter is a big boy that, if left unblocked, could be a one hit kill.

  • Feedback Bolt is a big, powerful spell. To put it simply: ouch.

  • Fain, the Broker can make treasures, can make +1/+1’s, and can make little spooky boys. The best type of boys. Great utility and variety overall.

  • Rain of Riches is big. One cascading spell a turn, whichever one you want? Imagine dropping Feedback Bolt and cascading into Hellkite Igniter.

  • Captain Lannery Storm is innocent… Until you leave her unblocked like a dummy.

  • Concussive Bolt can be an easy kill, letting you get as much damage as you want through.

  • Dispense Justice is just like saying “Fuck your voltron.”

  • It seems you also like having and sacrificing constructs, so here’s a bit to let you do more of that, if you’d prefer to have a construct deck over a treasure token deck.

    • Shared Animosity will give constructs a boost, but there really isn’t a specific theme across creature types aside from that, and your constructs are better used for chump blocking or just turning them into scrap. Ignore this if you’re going for more of a construct tribal sort of thing.

    • Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip is a good card, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it’s really necessary.

    • Rakdos Charm could be replaced with something better as far as artifact removal or graveyard hate. Nihil Spellbomb would be good graveyard hate and Generous Gift is just a good white staple.

    • Comet Storm is fun, but Crackle with Power is more fun.

    Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, Impulsive Pilferer, and Shambling Ghast seem like decent additions. I'm also surprised not to see the fetchlands in this deck (heck, given the added value from Korvold it might be worth it to run off-color fetches like Marsh Flats), and if you do add the fetches then Elvish Reclaimer and Crop Rotation would perform incredibly well.

    Happy trails! Korvold is one of my favorite commanders >:)

    Ruthless Technomancer, Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, and Tireless Provisioner pop off really well in my Korvold deck.

    Hello! fun deck! Some Suggestions:
    Captain Lannery Storm, not as powerful as other recommended cards but can be a powerhouse if used correctly
    Descent into Avernus, considering the fact that you can utlize treasures better than your opponents, this could be very useful with its treasure creation
    Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, amazing card in any treasure deck
    Mahadi, Emporium Master, great value
    Rain of Riches, cascading is an effect only printed on certain cards due to its power, imprinting cascade on to random cards is amazingly powerful
    Scion of Opulence has some absurd value, not only because of the death triggers but because of the fact that with enough treasures you can play tons of cards off the top of your library with them.
    In the end of the day this is your deck and these are my suggestions. Thought I'd give some advice though.

    i might found some gems which could be useful for you. First of, i like the dragonorbs as rocks, as they are on flavour and if used for a dragon, they gain extra some advantage. Only drawback is - except the OG-Orb - they cost 3 cmc.

    Lapis Orb of Dragonkind - Card selection

    Jade Orb of Dragonkind - Prottection

    Carnelian Orb of Dragonkind Haste

    Orb of Dragonkind - Draw

    Swashbuckler Extraordinaire gains a treasure while entering which could be used for ramp or combat dmg.

    Thunderbreak Regent gains some kind of tax for removing your dragons and is a 4/4 for 4, which is kinda nice.

    If you're using Blasphemous Act with Wrathful Red Dragon as a potential game ender, could Chain Reaction get you some redundancy here?

    Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge is a 5/4 for 3 with kinda defender. but with that many rock and the triggered ability he can definately gain you some advantage. Otherwise he is a flying blocker for 3.

    Looking forward to your thoughts
