multimedia on COOL sac Korvold deck?!

3 months ago

Hey, nice update. I think you'll find that Korvold is an amazing Commander with sacrifice strategies.

Murderous Redcap and Putrid Goblin are other persist Goblins to combo with Grumgully and a sac outlet. Goblin Recruiter and Goblin Matron are tutors to get Goblins which is also nice with Dockside. Recruiter can setup the top of your library with Goblins to draw and assemble the Goblin combo with Korvold. Get Dockside first which makes mana with treasures to sac to draw with Korvold the rest of the Goblins and cast them.

Because you have Dockside then Temur Sabertooth can combo with it as long as Dockside makes five or more treasures then it can make infinite mana with treasures and bounce of Dockside with Sabertooth. This combo with Korvold draws into your deck letting you cast all cards in your deck or draw until you find Mayhem Devil as a win condition by sacing treasures.

Tireless Tracker, Mystery Booster version, is very good with Korvold as a repeatable source of permanents to sac just by playing a land. Sacing a clue with Korvold draws two cards and grows Korvold as well as Tracker. Without Korvold Tracker's clues can be a backup draw source.

A budget card that's overlooked with Korvold is Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse. On your turn if you draw a card with Korvold then you create a 2/2 Cat. She can be a repeatable source of Cats just by drawing a card which can be sac fodder for Korvold. She can also trigger on your opponents turns, if you draw two cards, which is good with clues and treasures with Korvold. Jolrael's activated ability can pump all your creatures especially Goblin tokens for a huge attack which can be a backup win condition with infinite mana from Dockside + Sabertooth without Korvold.

Yeah, this is difficult.

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.

So a similar but cheaper cmc alternative would be Butcher Ghoul. Also Putrid Goblin for a persist version. If you want a more expensive card that can help generally try looking at Cauldron of Souls. Also, in my opinion Genesis Chamber is one of the most underrated cards in commander, especially in terms of generating sac fodder for things like Phyrexian Altar or anything that benefits from frequent sac targets.

What specific qualities do you want for your sac fodder? Is it just low cmc self recurring, or anything else you are looking for?

As for your Mana, it's looking better. Still lean for my tastes.

triproberts12 on Hogaak Persist Combo

Yeah, the list I threw out at first is a little clunky, because I didn't see the Protean Hulk plan. If that's the level of power your table is playing at, efficiency matters.

Here's my pitch for Puppeteer Clique and Woodfall Primus with Renata, Called to the Hunt. As you upgrade the deck, you're going to want altars- Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia, Greater Good, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician. They can all do degenerate things in general, but just win the game by reanimating a persist creature. Having infinite sac combos built into dorks like Putrid Goblin, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Viscera Seer also seems good.

To go with that, keeping the reanimation curve low would be most powerful. I can understand the price tag on Unearth being out of reach for a bit and I see Victimize and Stitch Together, but no Animate Dead or Apprentice Necromancer. You only need the one turn to go off, after all!

Oh, also, now I see the game plan. I'd also add in some redundancy with other persist creatures and +1/+1 ETB combo pieces. Namely, Ivy Lane Denizen + Renata, Called to the Hunt and Putrid Goblin + Puppeteer Clique (basically does a 1-turn Rise of the Dark Realms impression), Rendclaw Trow, and Woodfall Primus (not a bad Worldfire impression if you have a decent board!)
