Wait for the board to fill then play Vicious Shadows and then play Blasphemous Act. I love that combo.

Wait for the board to fill then play Phyrexian Scriptures. Next turn play Thrilling Encore.

I love commanders that give you free range to build a deck to however you decide to create it. A good example of this is Queen Marchesa. I built a Queen Marchesa deck with a bunch of deathtouch creatures other dangerous creatures like Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker Ophiomancer and High Priest of Penance. To create a unique pillowfort. Why this kind of pillowfort you ask? Because it's also a planswalker deck with 12 walkers. But that's not all. I also have a plethora of card combos like Protector of the Crown and Shielded by Faith and all the above board wipe combos. And the board wipe combos act like win conditions too.

This is why Queen Marchesa is good. But she gives the monarch. Thats what makes her great. And she has deathtouch and when you dont have the monarch you get deathtouch Assassins that die to Skullclamp or act as good blockers for planswalkers. Creatures with deathtouch work great with Thornbite Staff, Viridian Longbow and Chandra's Ignition. Giving you simple control.


With all that being said. Are their other commanders that you have built around? That has a deck design that seems to be unique? An example of this would be rashmi, eternitites crafter. Rashmi creates no direction to build a deck. A bad example would be Lathliss, Dragon Queen. Clearly you need a dragon tribal. So Lathliss, Dragon Queen gives you a direction to build.


So everyone please share your thoughts and explain what commanders you believe are good for this and share what you did to make it unique.

It's nice to see a Korvold deck that isn't going full cEDH into Food Chain.

You have a bit of a token sub-theme going so maybe some token doublers like Parallel Lives or the criminally expensive Doubling Season would be good. Plus Parallel Lives/Doubling Season + Clock of Omens + Cauldron Familiar + Witch's Oven is a hilarious infinite combo.

Also, Artifact Mutation might be a solid removal spell that provides fodder.

Dreadhorde Invasion (and the more expensive Ophiomancer and Bitterblossom) can ensure that you always have something to sack.

Looks great! Personally I would make these swaps:

I like the idea of a quasi- Zulaport Cutthroat in the Command zone..

Ayara synergizes with the passive token generators used in the classic Contamination -lock ( Bitterblossom , Dreadhorde Invasion , Ophiomancer , etc.), even if you don’t run the dreaded Contamination itself..

Also, I see your Greaves, but a pair of Swiftfoot Boots is usually a good idea too..

Lastly, although the strategy of my deck is ultimately different, you should consider some of the Undying synergies in my deck (Undying Phyrexian Aristocracy) for some inspiration..

Cool deck!! I think you could probably cut Dark Ritual as its only a one time boost. I would run something like Blood Pet or Blood Vassal instead. Or if you find that you aren't lacking in the mana debt. Then go with the Ophiomancer or Ogre Slumlord .

SynergyBuild on Mono black aggro DONE OUR WAY

Contamination feels at home if we had Ophiomancer and Bitterblossom effects, but then I feel that Rankle, Master of Pranks is also a requirment, making us more of a normal black-stax build rather than a stax-aggro. I will look for other ways of improving that style and perhaps it is the best method!

Wolfpig on Infinite Hunger : A Korvold deck

Korvold not being a reliable sac outlet I suggest these, Viscera Seer and Prossh, Skyraider of Kher .

Korvold is more of a , hey I'm glad you were here when all that happened card. He's the perfect battlefield ascetic for sac decks.

These cards are also way better token producers than some of this stuff you have, although bitterblossum for sac tokens is kind of Meh IMO. Its a great card, but those tokens are more useful as attackers.

Also cards like Phyrexian Reclamation are really handy and cheap. Nice deck, reminds me of my deck in some ways ☠ вℓσσ∂ ση cняιsтмαs ☠.
