Reliquary Tower Discussion
2 days ago
Really I like so much this deck :) Here I have some suggestions:
Probably K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth can work here to do a little bit of ramp and also lose life.
Vilis, Broker of Blood becomes a silly card-draw engine in this deck. I mean, in some scenarios you can draw your entire deck, or at least between 30-35 cards! (If you add this I recommend you to add some cards that give you no maximum hand size, the best options for this deck are Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel )
Hex Parasite is another card to lose all the life that you can (because X can be 0), but also can help you to kill planeswalkers.

Maybe using cards like Sidisi, Undead Vizier so you can tutor cards and sac stuff you need in the grave, Scheming Symmetry , Phyrexian Delver , Bolas's Citadel , Buried Alive to tutor your wincons to the gy (like Necrotic Ooze Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion and you win in the spot), Animate Dead , Dark Petition , Carrion Feeder , Gravecrawler , Living Death / Rise of the Dark Realms (that last one is kinda expensive) I'd suggest those as black cards. Using Sol Ring is more useful than Worn Powerstone , Expedition Map to tutor any land to hand, Tormod's Crypt bc gy hate is useful, Gilded Lotus 3 mana by 5 isn't bad, Thought Vessel , Aetherflux Reservoir wincon tho. The mana base kinda concerns me by the amount of basic swamps, you could use something like Cabal Stronghold , Reliquary Tower , Terramorphic Expanse , Evolving Wilds even if it's a mono color deck, being able to shuffle and get lands out of the deck will be useful, less dead draws. Sword of the Animist is always useful if you don't have ramp.

Imp's Mischief - Counters counterspells, redirects removal and extra turns. People rarely see it coming. Using hatred sucks because it is additional cost to cast is life, so you can have imp's mischief as a backup to removal. Same with insidious dreams.... this deck seems very very weak to blue. Have you considered perhaps the double edged sword Defense Grid ? Or hell, since you don't care about losing life, become the blue player with Withering Boon ! Show them what a Goku shooting a kamehaha can do!
Contamination - Synergy with bitterblossom, counterspell bait, brtual.
Rings of Brighthearth - Synergy with your commander, top, aetherflux....karn, ayara, razaketh, fetches,
No Reliquary Tower for necro?
Lotus Petal - Seems better in decks like locust g-d with built in card advantage to mitigate the card loss. You don't have much card draw in the deck so a few timely pieces of removal and you're gone.

I can see Vilis, Broker of Blood in the maybe board and I’d say that would be a good inclusion in the main board, any spells you cast with your commander will draw you 2 cards minimum which is insane card advantage.
Ivory Tower could be a very good option as it only costs 1 mana and could gain you a fair bit of life back each turn.
Erebos, God of the Dead could also be a very good inclusion because it’ll give you card advantage and stops your opponents from gaining life.

Hey man, just saw you on MTG Muddstah. I'm a little surprised you aren't running Field of the Dead, Pathbreaker Ibex, Finale of Devastation and Marwyn, the Nurturer.
The line of play would be Scapeshift into Splendid Reclamation - getting Reliquary Tower and Field of the Dead (if they aren't on the battlefield already) for loads of card draw, tokens and unlimited hand size while effectively doubling your lands on the battlefield. With those lands and tokens, you can tutor and easily resolve Finale for X=10+, get Pathbreaker or Craterhoof and kill the entire table. Should both (Hoof and Ibex) be in your hand as you cast Finale, get Marwyn and tap her for X+1 green mana (she gets haste and +X/X from Finale) and cast Craterhoof off of that. Spellseeker can find Finale for you, as it's technically 2 cmc. Eldritch Evolution can find Spellseeker quite easily.
That said, I like this deck. It actually performed like I'd expect from a Tatyova list. Best regards!

Great suggestions Tata! I'm actually planning to include Zombify AND Dread Return but my LGS has a hard time keeping this card in-stock it seems. Three trips now and no dice haha (same issue with Anger & Dictate of Erebos )
I definitely have a soft spot for Flayer of the Hatebound , especially in conjunction with Stalking Vengeance and/or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . In combo with Birthing Pod it allows me to pull two creatures instead of one, which in-and-of-itself is fairly appealing. You're not wrong, I just like the options the card provides.
Now that I've removed Siege-Gang Commander the Marsh Flitter has become pretty one-dimensional. Definitely on the cut list. Generator Servant will likely stay.. this card is really quite good. It has in-built synergy with Korvold and early in the game has been able to eat removal spells on numerous occasions.
When I first constructed this deck I had Kodama's Reach , Skyshroud Claim , Burnished Hart & Explosive Vegetation in it. Since switching to Korvold as the Commander and especially since the addition of Sol Ring , Ashnod's Altar & Phyrexian Altar casting my Commander has never been an issue. Once Korvold hits the field the Card Draw is really gratuitous. So-much-so that I've recently decided a Reliquary Tower is a necessity. In this kind of deck drawing cards will always be a better alternative to ramp spells (in my opinion). In the rare circumstance I struggle to get to five mana, perhaps I'll regret this sentiment and make changes, but consistently it has not been an issue [thus far] with this deck.
