Said on Korvold's Hunger...

(Sorry for the double post, but I just noticed you already had Pawn of Ulamog on your list and I missed it earlier. Oops.)

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!

Spark Double could be fun, especially when paired with Paradox Haze .

If you can work it in, you should definitely consider Conjurer's Closet as another repeatable way to flicker your commander or other creatures that benefit from ETB triggers.

If I'm understanding this correctly, the intention here is for Mairsil to use Quicksilver Elemental 's ability to have Mairsil target itself, thus gaining some sort of additional instance of its own abilities, yes? But I'm not sure that works either since Mairsil's abilities aren't technically activated abilities, right? The first part is a triggered ability on ETB and the second is a static ability. So as best as I can tell, nothing is being "refreshed" with this, and each ability can still only be activated once per turn. On the other hand, I'm by no means a judge, so I could also be off-base with my logic here.

Optimator thanks for reminding me of him! I was totally going to include him in here but somehow forgot. Still haven't pulled him yet, but I'm sure it won't be hard to get a copy. As for Endless Ranks of the Dead I was keeping it on the list mostly as a sort of placeholder until I could pick up a better token generator like Ogre Slumlord or Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder . Even though I have a fair amount of zombies to work with Ranks, it still won't be as efficient in this setup as either of those other two, so I definitely agree with you there.

I suppose it's not outside the realm of possibility that we might see Jace, Chandra, and Ajani there to pay their respects to Gideon after WAR, and if Elspeth is indeed able to to come back to the realm of the living then Ajani being there for her return would make a bit of sense, even if it is a bit plot convenient. Granted, I know a lot of people are pretty sick of the Gatewatch at this point...

I do hope we see some more of Ashiok though, and there's a part of me that hopes against hope that maybe a return to Theros could lead to some roundabout way of bringing Dack back (I know how unlikely this is, but a guy can dream).

Nice! Looks pretty solid! I feel like any deck that's running Elenda as commander wants some kind of enchantment recursion though to bring back goodies like Kaya's Ghostform and Animate Dead for repeated use if needed. Probably the best one I can think of would be Hall of Heliod's Generosity since it's repeatable and harder to get rid of since it's a land.

Looks pretty cool! I'm not sure what I'd take out for it, but Young Pyromancer seems like it might do pretty well with a deck like this, giving you value in the form of extra elemental tokens every time you play your instants or sorcery cards.

I don't know why I didn't think of it before for my last comment, but Blind Obedience would probably fit well, making your opponents bow before their king as their stuff gets tapped and you get to extort them.

If I had to choose between the two, I'd pick Gravecrawler over Reassembling Skeleton personally. Gravecrawler does what the skeleton does, only better and more efficiently.

If you equip the Thornbite Staff onto your commander, any time a creature dies you get to untap it. More importantly, when you activate your commander's ability, you pay your mana, tap it, then sac a creature. As soon as that creature hits the graveyard, the staff's ability triggers, letting you untap your commander, and therefore allowing you to continue using Ertai's ability as long as you have the mana and the creatures to sac! Using the Gravecrawler and a means to flash it in means you can sac the crawler and bring it back immediately after you use the counter ability at any time, and getting the double treasures from Teysa+Plunderer ensures you'll always have the mana to activate the ability and recast the crawler. Barring that, just having Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + Pitiless Plunderer gives you easy access to all the mana you could ever need!

I love Elenda! Using her as a commander can be tricky since you normally can't get the most out of her abilities unless you let her hit the grave. However, I see you have Kaya's Ghostform slotted in, which is useful as long as it doesn't get removed at the wrong moment. To supplement that, I recommend considering cards like Restoration Specialist , Treasury Thrull , and most especially Hall of Heliod's Generosity to give you added recursion, all of which can give you back Ghostform and Animate Dead to reuse! Plus a little added insurance never hurt anyone.

I feel like Archetype of Aggression would compliment Bolas nicely. It's affordable and cheap to cast, gives all your creatures trample and makes it impossible for your opponents to trample you all in one neat little package.
