My Haakon list was fairly slow, but when it worked it was hard to interrupt. My playgroup learned very quickly how to stop it and he became a target. I had him for a little bit before selling 12 EDH decks (including Haakon) because I was in college at the time and keeping up with 15+ decks was too time consuming and too much money. I always meant to come back to him and now is the time.
Because I have been out of the Magic scene, I have been trying to research new cards and potential combos. When I found Netherborn Altar I knew I wanted to get back to Haakon since there is more than one way to get him out now. I remembered your deck so I came back to check it out. Still love it. Thanks for answering all of my questions. I've been debating on starting from scratch which is why I asked so many. A couple more for you before I start rebuilding or tweaking.
Viscera Seer? Do you have enough sac outlets?
What do you do in the event of early gravehate?
Thanks for answering these again, man. Great to talk to someone who plays one of my favorite commanders/cards in all of Magic.
I definitely understand trying to find non-english version of cards. One of my pioneer decks I have been trying to get Japanese foils but Covid makes that so damn difficult.

Upgrade is finally made! For now, I'm going with adding Opposition Agent, Szat's Will, Jeweled Lotus, and Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools, and removing Black Market, Netherborn Altar, Rite of Belzenlok, and Murderous Rider (for now). Bloodchief Ascension would probably have been a better cut than Rider, but I just have a personal fondness for that card...

manvsamerica: I'll work to update it soon! Rite of Belzenlok and Black Market and Netherborn Altar are definitely out. Liliana's Standard Bearer is really strong, but I'll consider it. Ugin is a potential cut, but I'm unsure. I also need to add some stuff from Zendikar Rising, so I'm considering...

Haakon players rejoice! The newcomer Netherborn Altar now doubles the number of cards that let you actually get Haakon into the game.
You might also appreciate Gravebreaker Lamia as a tutor that makes all your dead knights cheaper to replay, Cavalier of Night as a kill spell stapled to a knight, Blacklance Paragon as a combat trick you can play from your graveyard at instant speed, Liliana's Standard Bearer as repeatable card draw and Syr Konrad, the Grim as a big boy who will wear your opponent down whenever you play a knight from your graveyard, sacrifice a creature or even discard a creature... basically everything the deck wants to be doing already. Good luck with this challenging commander!

This deck is cool. I'm trying to make a deck for all the primal dinos, and this one is going to be the hardest. A card I'd recommend adding is Netherborn Altar. It costs some life however it puts you commander into you hand. A card that I don't think would be very useful but is cool is Nesting Grounds.

Have you thought about putting in card Netherborn Altar into the deck? I know you commented earlier that you feel like you had enough ways to get Phage out, but it just seems like that is a card that is too efficient to pass up.
