The +Toxin will combine with the viral. The + Electric will combine with the base heat, giving you radiation. So your build will then result in a Viral + Rad combo.

As far as I know, the only weapons that can get both corrosive and viral together are weapons that have base viral or base corrosive (Synapse, Phage, Plague zaws, etc... [See reply by @Duality52 for additional weapons]).

Few more to add with weapons that can do Viral/Corrosive:

  • Kuva Seer's explosion also has Corrosive to it
  • Entrati Augment for the Akbronco Prime (240% Viral).
  • Pathocyst
  • Pupacyst
  • Keratinos

As a note for multi-elemental Rivens, the element at the bottom go first. Since @Sevek7 answered the question, here's an example with your Riven: If you installed the Riven only, you would have Corrosive/Heat for your Kuva Karak (Innate Heat).

  • If the weapon has an innate element like Heat, elements from mods go first. Innate elements would go last, such as your Heat from the Kuva Karak. This results in Corrosive/Heat.
  • If you modded two elements like Cold and Heat, where you place them before or after the Riven matters. Placing Cold before the Riven and Toxin after will result in Viral (Cold/Toxin) and Radiation (Heat/Electric). Bolded words are from your Riven. Whatever your last element is, it will fuse with the innate Heat with the Kuva Karak.

the bullet point rules that govern everything, are that Elements can be used exactly once on a Weapon. never more than once. (though this does not include certain Abilities which force add Elements that do not combine, there are very few cases of this however)
if a Weapon has an innate Element, it is added after all other Mods. so a singular Element combines with your last Equipped Elemental.
oh yes, and Rivens combine in Descending Ascending order, rather than the Ascending Descending that you would expect.

and ofcourse top left to bottom right combining order.

i think you mean the reverse. as a riven with toxin then cold with a heat mod in front of it will combine to make blast, toxin. rather then gas, cold.
