dbpunk - I feel like Mindblade Render is more Shadow Weaver-ish. And maybe Combat Celebrant or Mentor of the Meek could be Bow?

My recommendations :

I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.

LOW IMPACT:

Teferi's Protection

Rhox Faithmender

Debt to the Deathless

Despark

MANA COST TOO HIGH

Merciless Eviction

Anguished Unmaking

Disallow

Thran Dynamo

TOO SLOW

Mox Tantalite

Phyrexian Arena

Twilight Prophet

Crypt Ghast

Winds of Abandon

Vindicate

Search for Azcanta  Flip

I would first add better ramp, better draw, potential Stax, tutors and then other win cons.

Epicurus thanks for checking my deck man :D.
i really like Karador and i am trying always to improve him.
Beast Whisperer,Skullclamp,Audacious Thief,Oakhame Adversary,Mindblade Render,Yawgmoth, Thran Physician are all amazing draw engines. Sometimes i forget i have them and neglected to tell you to add them.
on that idea also add Guardian Project and Path of Discovery they are really amazing enchantments i had to cut them out because they costed 2 much. But i still like them.
Runic Armasaur believe it or not is the first to be swapped out when i find a replacement because he is too cirumstancial.
Finally i do love Syr Konrad, the Grim but my meta is too fast for that.I tried him and really like him but 5 mana is too much for the slot i wanted him for (protect my graveyard). I don't need his damage to end the game so i had to remove him.
Thanks for checkning my deck :D

Thanks for the upvote and comment shwanerz88! Mindblade Render is only in for the card draw as having card advantage is always key, however I am still testing it out and its better than Runic Armasaur in the current moment. Orcish Lumberjack has been meh when I tried it as it would be better in a lands build. As for Goblin Bombardment it generally is good but when used with Food Chain it doesn't become an outlet or its a dead card in hand, it's better for a Prossh deck.

Appreciate the look over!

Wishclaw Talisman > Scheming Symmetry you should never be helping someone in cedh with a tutor like Scheming. but wishclaw at least lest you pop off on your turn without someone tutoring a counterspell to stop you.

Gamble > Diabolic Tutor diabolic tutor is just bad, 4 mana to tutor something is really bad unless it's letting cheat mana cost somewhere else, like Natural Order

unless you add more discard synergy, i would cut Sire Of Insanity and Protean Hulk you don't have a consistent way to dump them in the gy to cheat their cost. i would even consider cutting Mikaeus too, as it is one of the more expensive ways to activate your persist combo.

and since you're going for the persist combo it looks like: Putrid Goblin is a decent plan B if murderous redcap is off the table. Grumgully, the Generous is probably the better replacement to mikaeus. and with that said, Goblin Recruiter becomes a great line to get your persist combo if Korvold is out. top to bottom: Dockside Extortionist, Vexing Shusher (if you need the protection), grumgully, Skirk Prospector, and putrid goblin or the redcap.

i highly recommend Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast just for some interactions. it's a good way to shoot rhystic study at the least, but you can protect your fairly fragile persist combo as well. unless you're magically playing in a meta without any blue, which for cEDH standards is absurd.

also some other cheap ways to draw cards is also something i noticed this deck missing, all you really have is library, dark confidant, and Korvold himself. decent add-ons are: Oakhame Adversary, Mindblade Render, Azra Oddsmaker, or Runic Armasaur

if you end up cutting all the top end (cmc 5+) cards out, you can also add in ad nauseum for a very strong draw power.

Very good looking list, I may take some tips from this and add them to my Prossh deck. Mindblade Render seems pretty bad in this deck though considering it is the only warrior. Orcish Lumberjack or Goblin Bombardment add additional sac outlets

What are people's experiences with Mindblade Render? Seems pretty random and meta specific (good against najeelas)?
