Description

{"ops":[{"insert":"The idea for this deck or the Korlash "},{"attributes":{"italic":true},"insert":"Grandeur"},{"insert":" combo is not mine, originally. But I have yet to see a recent attempt at it, and the decklists I see of Korlash on the internet are overwhelmingly voltron or zombie tribal, ignoring the most interesting part of his textbox. Thus, this deck is an update on the combo-turbo swamp deck that focuses on the "},{"attributes":{"italic":true},"insert":"Grandeur "},{"insert":"ability, including combo lines and cards no one has used with Korlash before. Enjoy. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"The main idea: "},{"insert":"the goal is to get "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Korlash, Heir to Blackblade"}},{"insert":" out, create a copy of him, and sacrifice the actual card, getting that card back to my hand, to activate the grandeur ability of the copy on the battlefield, discarding the real Korlash to find two swamps. Those are the hoops. The reward? two swamps and being way cooler than everyone else at the table. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"How to copy Korlash:"},{"insert":" "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Activated Sleeper"}},{"insert":" is probably the best of the bunch, creating a permanent Phyrexian Korlash if our Korlash has died. "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Saw in Half"}},{"insert":" might be better, but one has to stomach using an un-set card, and losing one of the copies that it creates. Still, it gets the real Korlash card into the graveyard. Next best are "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Mirror of the Forebears"}},{"insert":" and "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Mirage Mirror"}},{"insert":", which do it as an activation, and only last until end of turn. These will become copies of Korlash, he will die, but you have to make sure everything is in place before you use these. Otherwise, they are strong cards in their own right. Further up the mana chain are "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Helm of the Host"}},{"insert":" and "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Lithoform Engine"}},{"insert":", which both create a copy at a steep cost. Helm also requires you to find a way for the real Korlash to die. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Getting Korlash back to hand:"},{"insert":" a good number of cards in the deck are dedicated to getting Korlash back to hand at various degrees of repeatability and function. It's odd for a color that wants to return stuff to the field, it isn't as good at returning stuff to hand. "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Phyrexian Reclamation"}},{"insert":" is far and above the best version of this. Low cost, repeatable. "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Tortured Existence"}},{"insert":" is alright, but asks for creatures to discard, which can be very tough as you run out quickly. "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Undertaker"}},{"insert":" asks for cards as well, and can only do it once per turn. "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Lord of the Undead"}},{"insert":" is more forgiving, grabbing our zombie commander once a turn. "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Endbringer's Revel"}},{"insert":" is a steep cost, and lets our opponents have some fun too, which can be good and bad. Either way, it's a solid choice. The rest are one-off effects and are pretty flexible in terms of the slot they fill. Many of these effects appear on lands, which is nice.\n\n "},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"What then? "},{"insert":"Though pulling this off is a victory itself, the deck doesn't stop there. Adding "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Amulet of Vigor"}},{"insert":" and "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Tiller Engine"}},{"insert":" into the pile makes the loop with "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Phyrexian Reclamation"}},{"insert":" mana-neutral, so it only costs our life to fetch all the swamps out of the library. Those untaps make "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Lord of the Undead"}},{"insert":" look nice, and cuts the cost of "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Endbringer's Revel"}},{"insert":" in half. \n\n"},{"insert":{"card-link":"Veilborn Ghoul"}},{"insert":" directly synergizes with "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Tortured Existence"}},{"insert":", making it one black mana to fetch two swamps. With the untaps we get all the swamps out of the library and gain a decent amount of mana in the process. \n\nFor all these interactions, "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Dread Presence"}},{"insert":" is a solid wincon, or at worst some card draw. \n\nWith all the mana, the deck can spit out some splashy big-mana spells. Pick your favorites. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Backup Plan:"},{"insert":" This deck can combo in a few other ways, notably "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Tormod, the Desecrator"}},{"insert":" "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Phyrexian Altar"}},{"insert":" "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Gravecrawler"}},{"insert":". The gravecrawler/alter combo can hook onto other cards like "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Undead Augur"}},{"insert":" also. \n\nFinally, this deck isn't against suiting Korlash up and smashing some skulls in. "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Mask of Griselbrand"}},{"insert":" "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Shadowspear"}},{"insert":", and of course "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Blackblade Reforged"}},{"insert":" itself. Sometimes it's possible to make a huge Korlash (or multiple) and fling him with "},{"insert":{"card-link":"Blood-Chin Fanatic"}},{"insert":" for the victory.\n"}]}
