Hey, well done on a budget, nice foil Goldspan and SL Dreadbore :)

Consider more ramp with Korvold? More one and two drop ramp sources:

Korvold is powerful as Commander when playing lots of ramp since it helps to cast him faster and then that ramp can fuel his sacrifice. This makes playing lots of redundant ramp actually a strength.


Animation Module + Ashnod's Altar + Korvold is a combo to draw as many cards as you want, make Korvold huge, make as much colorless mana as you want. Without the combo Module is a nice repeatable source of tokens for sac fodder because of Korvold.

Add Pitiless Plunderer to create tons of treasures. Plunderer and a different sac outlet such as Viscera Seer or Goblin Bombardment could replace Ashnod's Altar since it only costs 1 mana (1 treasure) to make a Servo with Module. Bombardment is an excellent low CMC budget sac outlet.

Ramunap Excavator lets you abuse lands as the permanent to sac with Korvold. Caustic Caterpillar and Seal of Primordium are upgrades for artifact/enchantment removal spells because they can sac themselves as well as be saced at instant speed. Plaguecrafter is a nice creature removal effect in multiplayer Commander who sacs himself.

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher as the high end has synergy with Korvold. It's a sac outlet and it makes Kobold tokens to sac. Farseek is an upgrade for Rampant Growth because you have Overgrown Tomb and Stomping Ground. Harrow is an upgrade for Cultivate because you sac a land to cast it.

Path of Ancestry, Jund Panorama, Karplusan Forest, Dragonskull Summit, Rootbound Crag, Cinder Glade, Smoldering Marsh are some budget land upgrades to consider.

If interested I offer more advice including suggestions of cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Hey there!

For a first EDH deck this looks pretty good! Had all sorts of advice to give but found most of my ideas were already in this list! Nice job!

A few things I did see:

IMO you are a bit heavy on the land with your mana curve how it is. 38 lands plus 8 rocks is a lot and you will end up drawing dead cards later on. While these can be pitched to Chainer, if your commander isnt out it wont feel great. My suggestion would be to cut a few lands, maybe 4, and add in some additional draw spells such as:

I see you already have Plaguecrafter so another one to include could be Fleshbag Marauder for some more copies of that effect.

To go with Buried Alive you could also run Unmarked Grave

In terms of removal, Bedevil would be a solid addition.

Finally a fun card to reanimate creatures could be Hell's Caretaker.

As for cards I would remove:

  • Meteor Golem is pricey for what it does. While it can be recurred you do have to pay for it each time.

Thats it! Everything else looks awesome so I would have a tough time cutting things for my suggestions. lol

Hope this helps and love the deck! Best of luck!

Hey, you're welcome.

Against opponent hexproof creatures you want more Fleshbag Marauder and Syphon Flesh sacrifice effects. Here's some budget options.

Living Death is powerful, but may be too expensive price. It's mass sacrifice for all players creatures and it's also mass reanimation for each player of any creatures that where in that players graveyard before you cast Living.


Black has some board wipes, unfortunately the better cards are not budget options, but here's a few that are.

  • Life's Finale : also puts any three creatures of your choice from one opponent's library into their graveyard to embalm them with Scarab.
  • Deadly Tempest : also does damage to each player.
  • Crux of Fate : if there's no problematic Dragons then choose all nonDragon creatures.

Some more situational budget board wipes:

Saw your post on reddit. Welcome back to MtG!

Some immediate cheap upgrades include Plaguecrafter and Demon's Disciple which are strictly better than Fleshbag Marauder.

Some new lands since the precon was released that are worth consideration are Llanowar Wastes , Necroblossom Snarl , Undergrowth Stadium , and Nurturing Peatland .

Here is my list which may be handy to reference.

Hey, sac outlets that cost no mana to activate are overall better than ones that cost mana. 3 mana to sac one creature and draw one card is a lot. Your Teneb deck is better than the other one so I will focus on that one.

Altar of Dementia gives you repeatable self-mill and/or opponent mill and being able to choose either one is versatile. Currently you're only using the strategy of reanimating your opponent's creatures with Teneb, but by adding self-mill such as Altar then you can abuse Teneb other ways by reanimating your own creatures.

Plaguecrafter , Demon's Disciple and Fleshbag Marauder can do work as sac outlets since they make all your opponents sac a creature, if they have one. They can sac themselves which gets them into your graveyard to reanimate and potentially repeat.
