An Intro to Railgun Theory

Making Korvold big and blasting players is the name of the game! I absolutely love this deck, and it’s one of my favorites to bring to the table for group games. Plenty of sac outlets to trigger Korvold coupled with spells to hit players directly with Korvold's power. Charge the railgun, and wipe them off the plane!

Charging the beam

Building up counters on Korvold, Fae-Cursed King is the core mechanic of this deck, and there are plenty of cards included to do just that. Enchantments like Awakening Zone and From Beyond provide a steady steam of tokens to sacrifice, providing both mana and Korvold triggers, and you also have excellent token generating creatures such as Mycoloth and Grave Titan! Along with several other creatures with sacrificial benefits, there are also a few buffing spells to pump Korvold without need of sacrifice. Blackblade Reforged and Colossification can magnify Korvold’s power greatly in a single turn, while Hydra's Growth can quickly put Korvold at a monstrous level if left unchecked. Additionally, using Defense of the Heart to fetch Xenagos, God of Revels or Atarka, World Render can boost Korvold to two times the power for an attack!

Unleash Devastation

The strategy is simple but adaptable, you take that dragon and give him a cannon! Soul's Fire and Gravitic Punch allow you to shoot a single player directly after you’ve stacked Korvold to a respectable power level, and you have emergency answers and insurance in the form of Fling (#HoldThisDragon) and Dying Wish! An ideal setup would be to have Obosh, the Preypiercer or Angrath's Marauders on field to double the blasting power, as it is very easy to one shot a player with the combination of Korvold, Fae-Cursed King + Obosh, the Preypiercer + Soul's Fire ! (Xenagos, God of Revels is used to similar effect). There have also been victories by killing the entire table at once, using Chandra's Ignition + Korvold, Fae-Cursed King , with and without doubling spells!

“Who needs a plan, I have a goblin”

I mean if all else fails you could just have Brash Taunter fight Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, that’s always funny. “My Dragon fights my goblin, you die!”
