Hey, well planned out strategies on a budget. Nice Diabolic Intent :)
Consider Priest of Forgotten Gods and more repeatable token sources? If you can fuel Priest then she's over powered in multiplayer Commander and a great way to grow Korvold and draw. Priest makes insane value with Korvold since for no mana, just sacing two creatures, you make all opponents sac a creature and lose 2 life, you draw three cards, make two black mana and give Korvold two +1/+1 counters. Priest wants a robust package of cards that are repeatable token sources.
- Chandra, Acolyte of Flame
- Scute Swarm
- Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
- Awakening Zone
- From Beyond : can tutor for Betrays.
- Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin
- Dreadhorde Invasion
- Arasta of the Endless Web
- Tendershoot Dryad
- Wolverine Riders
Chandra's second 0 loyalty ability + Priest is a combo to be able to activate Priest repeatedly on your turn. The Elementals Chandra creates are saced at your end step meaning they will trigger Korvold and they don't have to attack.
You can speed up game play by adding more one and two drops that have interaction with Korvold or can be reliable ramp to cast him quicker.
- Arcane Signet : staple mana rock.
- Sakura-Tribe Elder : ramp, can sac itself.
- Impulsive Pilferer : creates a treasure when saced or dies. Four sacs and four treasures with encore.
- Caustic Caterpillar : removal, can sac itself.
- Viscera Seer : sac outlet, can sac itself.
- Paradise Druid : ramp.
- Farseek : land ramp that can search for a dual land such as Cinder Glade .
- Village Rites : draw.
- Crop Rotation : land tutor.
Another way to speed up game play is the reduce the number of lands that will always ETB tapped such as Gruul Guildgate .
- Command Tower : staple land for multicolored decks.
- Exotic Orchard
- Savage Lands : Jund Tri land.
- Path of Ancestry
- Llanowar Wastes : Golgari Pain land.
- Cinder Glade : Gruul Battle land.
- Smoldering Marsh : Rakdos Battle land.
- Rootbound Crag
- Dragonskull Summit
- Blighted Woodland
- Tainted Wood
On a budget Savage and Ancestry are exceptions, but they can make one color of the three Jund colors, that's worth it.
I offer more advice, including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

I really like Vorn. Garruk Wildspeaker , Garruk, Unleashed , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Vivien, Monsters' Advocate , Vivien Reid and Vivien, Arkbow Ranger would be the walkers that most fit your strategy even without corn out they'd be good on their own.

SnakeByte77: Hmm, having a flyer in the deck wouldn't be bad at all, actually. Being a three-drop, it'd have to replace either Nissa, Voice of Zendikar or my only draw, Inspiring Call (Managorger Hydra is way to good to take out). That means if Nissa doesn't work out and I have to fire her, then I could try Grakmaw in that spot. Thanks for the idea!

Like the deck and partner pair! I happen to know someone who would love playing this strategy at an EDH table!

Wyleth, Soul of Steel: I had this spoiled for me yesterday so I'm not as excited as I could be, but whatever. I don't think it's cEDH but it's obviously very functional for , being a draw engine piece in the command zone for a pretty low cmc. Bloodforged Battle-Axe obviously comes to mind, and as I mentioned earlier Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar will help decrease the voltron problem even if Wyleth doesn't have partner.
Hamza, Guardian of Arashin: Basically, has affinity for creatures with +1/+1 counters and gives that to all your creature cards, which is obviously spicy. Good-Fortune Unicorn is the obvious auto-include here (sorry Lathiel, the Bounteous Dawn!). Neat token/counter cards include Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Felidar Retreat & Animation Module Avenger of Zendikar might be kinda win-more here but casting it ahead of the curve, dropping a land and then following up with a big Eldrazi or something sounds damn cool.
Frenzied Saddlebrute: pseudo-haste for everyone is neat design space, but I feel this is just a bit too expensive since haste is something you want earlier rather than later.
Triumphant Reckoning: Does not include creatures without the relevant types. Probably does best in a multicolor artifact/enchantment deck.

There are good resources that offer something besides lifegain when you are in Selesnya colors. Abd have lifegain included along with the ability you want the card for. Good choices like; Nissa, Voice of Zendikar,Emmara, Soul of the Accord, March of the Multitudes. and Knight of Autumn. I would run march or the knight before that white sorcery or that WG instant at the top of this thread.
These all offer something besides just lifegain and many of them will actively advance your game state or provide threats while gaining lives.
