Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest Discussion

This is definitely how I would have built Chevill if I didn't have a very similar Korvold, Fae-Cursed King aristocrats deck. If you're looking for sacrifice value, there are many great cards:

Pitiless Plunderer for lots of mana

Erebos, Bleak-Hearted more draw for death as well as a sac outlet attached. Definitely use life as a resource because Chevill can gain it back.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest combos off really well with Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact

Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodsoaked Champion, and Gutterbones are great sac fodder with built-in reanimation.

i used to play Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest in my Ghave, Guru of Spores deck, but i often found it to be a dead draw. mostly it is too high cmc to be worth it imo, and Good-Fortune Unicorn accomplishes the same purpose but for 3 cmc and on our own terms! would recommend recommend removing him for Dockside Extortionist :)

Burnished Hart is inefficient turn 4 ramp. either put a 2 cmc ramp option or try fittimg Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer here. i like the classic Prismatic Lens and Wayfarer's Bauble for my 5-color deck :)

finally i would remove Thraben Inspector. quite an underwhelming card in commander game.

i love this deck idea! i have always wanted to try a mass alt-wincon theme deck, and i like the flavor of this one much!

LittleBlueHero gitrog as well as Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is in the 99 for that extra land per turn goodness.

All of the land destruction effects have sacrifice on them so you'll get a ton of counters with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest.

alright - one more thought :)

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest - I know it's expensive CMC, but might play real nice with devour? too slow?

Might be a little late here, but I though I'd mention Mayhem Devil for getting some ping damage off your myriad of sacrifices, and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest for buffing up your few creatures to fairly insane levels after some sacrifices. Both work off of permanent sacrifice, and can potentially be game winners (or at least changers). Also nice against other Korvold players.

Brass's Bounty is also a really nice card to run with lands, tho a tad on the expensive side, but can net you huge amounts of mana and sac triggers.

As well, Killing Wave could be a fun board wipe to play with in the end game, especially when you have all those locus elemental tokens sitting around. Use something like 12 or more mana for it, just sac all your creatures but korvold, rake in all those +1/+1s, draws, and Locus Elemental damage pings, and then swing with korvold at someone. All Is Dust also provides a similar experience, but you lose korvold with it.
