Post The Council of Blackblade - Korlash EDH
So I've been trying to get this deck up and running but I've been having a lot of trouble coming up with a definative deck list. Pretty much my thinking is if it doesn't have a chance vs. Sean's Akroma deck, it's not worth it. That said, I do want to stay with the vison of the deck of being Korlash who grows big on his own and voltron pieces. I tried to focus on multiple either free-to-equip or non-mana equip cost artifacts to get the job done.

The goal is abviously to get 21 points of general damage in with a huge Korlash. I like that if he gets tucked with Condem or what not, that I can just equip one of the other utility creatures with the voltron pieces and keep swinging.

I'm considering changing the general to Mirri the Cursed as she has haste, evasion and flying built in but she doesn't grow bigger on her own.

Any good suggestions?

Post Re: EDH Deck Tuning: Voltron Korlash - Need Suggestions!
Well, firstly, if you're going against Akromath,then I'm not sure Voltron is the way to go - white decks have more ways to get around artifacts than anyone else, and Sean is no exception. Secondly, you're missing Drain Life and Consume Spirit - I put them into my old Braids deck at Aaron's suggestion and haven't looked back - and probably Mindtwist or Cap/Sadistic Sacrament if you want to go 1v1.
In terms of individual cards, I'm not sure I'd want Terramorphic Expanse, or the Warclub/Gear but I'd definitely want SoLaS at least as much as SoFI. Also, Corpse Dance rocks if you have a few ways to sac your critters, and you have such an insane amount of graveyard hate (very happy to see someone else play Gravestorm, but wondering if Inkeyes is now useless?) that Living Death and Bidding would be very lopsided (if your dragon deck can spare them).

Anyway, awesome deck, whichever way you slice it. Go Black!!

PS: I assume Rishana is Don?

Post Re: Step into the Arena with Korlash - An Evolution
Just wondering, is the reason people play fetch lands in mono-color decks just for deck thinning? (wouldn't know, myself, what with always favoring the mono)
BLACK POWAH!!!

Post Re: Step into the Arena with Korlash - An Evolution
Its mostly to shuffle your library for things like Scroll Rack and Top. Don told me about an EDH deck he found online that ran Mishra (whenever you play an artifact, search your library for a copy of that artifact and put it into play), which was of course a complete bombo in EDH except for the fact that you shuffle your deck eighteen times a turn

Rings of brightheart makes every fetch pull double duty. They have amazing synergy with Ob Nixilis as well as top and scroll rack as Brian pointed out. They help out with when a general is condemned to the bottom. And they just slowly increase the general quality of your draws over the course of the game.

There really is no reason NOT to run them and plenty of reasons to.

Post Re: Step into the Arena with Korlash - An Evolution
hmm, well, that's convinced me, guess I'll run the two I've got in my new deck... just as soon as I finish it.

(maybe you're on to something here, Don, with the personal EDH ideas and suggestions post. wondering if it might be a good idea for everyone else to make one as well. certainly has me interested)

I enjoy seeing the local decks, but for more varied feedback, why not post on the official boards?

No offense but varied in this case has turned out to be a variance in intelligence. Cut CLAWS OF GIX?!!? WTF?!?!

At least I tried...
