Yahenni, Undying Partisan Discussion

CrimsonChaos on Korvold's Hunger

Ashnod's Altar and Animation Module can be a powerful combo setup with Korvold. More sac outlets in general would probably be nice to have, like Viscera Seer , Priest of Forgotten Gods , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Goblin Bombardment , or Ayara, First of Locthwain . Token generators like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Pawn of Ulamog , etc. are good for giving Korvold plenty of fodder to sac. Ramunap Excavator is a more affordable version of Crucible of Worlds , allowing you to replay any lands you sac, and having creature recursion through Phyrexian Reclamation may prove useful too. All of which should each be cheaper than ten bucks!

Solid deck thus far, you may want to lean a bit more heavily into true instant-speed, repeatable sac outlets like Viscera Seer rather than one-off outlets like Hell's Caretaker . Only being able to activate Caretaker during your upkeep is a pretty real restriction, you'll probably be serviced better by Dread Return taking up that slot. Maybe look at Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Spawning Pit for more true sac outlets. Also, minor thing, but you could replace Orzhov Cluestone and Orzhov Locket with Talisman of Hierarchy and maybe Millikin or Gold Myr / Leaden Myr . 2 Mana rocks/dorks are so much better than 3 mana, and Millikin will probably ultimately provide more card selection for you in this deck than the cluestone or locket.

Cheers on joining the Orzhov aristocrats club! My Elenda, the Dusk Rose deck is probably my favorite deck if I had to choose.

You have quite a few that I have in my deck. And a couple that I noticed are missing are in your maybeboard.. but thought i would give a couple suggestions.

Bloodghast is expensive, but his recursion is pretty nice. Noosegraf Mob - a bit high CMC, but can make 6 ETBs in a round around the table. And if you can recur him, he can do it again. Puppeteer Clique - 4 ETBs, along with 2 creatures from an opponents graveyard Sepulchral Primordial - guess it depends on your playgroup, but my buddies usually play big beasts, and we usually play 4-5 player Desecrated Tomb depending on how much graveyard recursion you have, this might pay off. Buried Alive is a great way to get those key creatures like Nether Traitor and Gravecrawler where you need them Yahenni, Undying Partisan - an extra sac outlet never hurts, and he is pretty easy to keep alive

I have found Yahenni, Undying Partisan to be very fun as an aristocrats commander. Free sac outlet from the command zone is an excellent thing to have available. As far as the two you are currently looking at go, my suggestion would be syr konrad. He is a stupid good mana sink and just outright wins the game with infinite black mana. Not that krrik isn't good by any means, but konrad is my preference

Sarkhan421X mono color is not a no-no, only mono white. There are very competitive decks in each other color that can win just fine.

Highly recommend Key to the City and Rogue's Passage , with a taste of Metallic Mimic to make redcap work still. Worse case scenario, if you don't have a ton of counters, Solemnity also works. Viscera Seer to hunt for your combo faster and Grenzo, Dungeon Warden , to really mess with people. Yahenni, Undying Partisan is a good free sac outlet to bounce things in and out of the yard. If you went into a heavier goblin combo, you can have Sling-Gang Lieutenant and Pashalik Mons as a good way to get some recursion and partial pinging damage, Same with Judith, the Scourge Diva . Chainer, Nightmare Adept is a good inclusion as well if that would be something you'd be interested in.

Would cards like Mausoleum Harpy work in this deck? I feel like you'd have to have a lot of 1/1's die on your side of the board to boost him up pretty well but then if your opponents have a lot more creatures then it'll still die?

Yahenni, Undying Partisan is another card I was wondering about.

Thanks!

Abzan Falconer , Tuskguard Captain , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vigor , Spark Double , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Mox Amber , Fellwar Stone , Good-Fortune Unicorn

I’d remove the Planeswalkers.

Sage of Hours . If a creature with a lot of +1/+1 counters dies and Reyhan, Last of Abzan is on the field you can move all those counters to the sage and then immediately remove them from the sage for possibly a mass amount of turns.

Thanks for the suggestions. Metallic Mimic has been sitting in my awful wizards deck for months now, I never thought of it going in here, but it really helps. Especially with the majority of the creature cards being wizards, same goes for Vindictive Lich , so thank you!

Now that I think about it, Yahenni, Undying Partisan really is a cheaper, and to some extent, better version of Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , so that definitely got put in. I would be hesitant to put in Falkenrath Aristocrat due to my CMC being quite high already (I know Razaketh, the Foulblooded has a high CMC, but he tutors and I cracked him while opening a pack so I feel obligated to use him! Shhhh!) And I would love to put Yawgmoth, Thran Physician but for now I'll leave him out, though I will probably always contemplate it!

Both Midnight Reaper and Grim Haruspex work better than River Kelpie for death/ETB based draw.

I feel like if I run Jokulhaups my playgroup will disown me. At some point Last One Standing will probably replace Killing Wave .

Thanks again for the suggestions, I really appreciate the feedback, and I definitely up-voted your Marchesa deck!
