Black Water - Korlash $40 Budget Voltron

Commander / EDH Artifact Budget Mono-Black Voltron Zombie




The #1 Korlash deck on TappedOut!


With regeneration, Korlash is really hard to get rid of once he hits the table so going for commander damage is the obvious play. If he gets stolen, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Nightmare, and Squelching Leeches are your backup options. My playgroup bought each other $40 commander decks and this was my choice to give to my friend.

In my ongoing endeavor to bring frugality to Commander, each card in this deck is under $2 and the whole deck is under $40 (not including the commander). If you like what you see, UPVOTE! or you can check out all my other $40 budget decks. If you see some areas of improvement, let me know what you'd change. Just make sure all suggested cards are under $2.

Step 1 = Play Korlash, Heir to Blackblade

Step 2 = Play equipment

Step 3 = Swing away

1) Commander damage

2) Big damage from pseudo-commanders

3) Big damage from Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Exsanguinate or Pestilence (if you're ahead on life)

I love the challenge of building really cheap decks. This is how the majority of my real life decks start out and then I improve them over time.
