Bake into a Pie Discussion
2 months ago
Hey shifthappen1! I'll try to answer your questions...
I actually removed most of the tutors from this deck because when you run them the temptation is to always gun for your combo pieces and I wanted this to be a little less linear. I have combos in there, but they mostly synergise with the thopter tokens and I only really use them if I draw into them rather than digging to win. So yeah, I can't give much advice on tutoring as I don't tend to do it in this deck any more!
As for things like Bake into a Pie and Spell Swindle - these are fun, and I actually used to run some of them, but they're all generally much more expensive than the alternatives, even if the alternatives don't have the synergy you mentioned. I'd generally rather run a 1 mana Swords to Plowshares or 2 mana Counterspell instead as there's lots of ways to make the tokens without nerfing your control. The same can be said for the other cards you mentioned. They'd all work well here, but they're just not optimal! I think depending on your playgroup and local meta, you could easily swap in the more artifact-based cards you mentioned but they wouldn't work so well where I usually play.
Hope that makes sense!

I've been 5hinking, since this deck is heavily token based, what are you usually tutoring and/or recuring from the graveyard? There's great utility with daretti and co, but there's no artifact that ends the game right there or is a huge threat all by itself. I guess what I mean is, how do you approach the game when you got tutors and/or recur engines available?
Also, for the control aspect, while there's a bunch of staples, a lot of them don't synergise all that. Have you concidered gettin control stuff that also adds tokens like Bake into a Pie, Spell Swindle, Confirm Suspicions, and others? And/or, using artifact based blinks like Voyager Staff or Tawnos's Coffin, or more artifact based control like Spine of Ish Sah, Duplicant, or a bunch of others.
Gosh, so many options, it'll take a while for me to decide how to actually build my version.

Don't know how I missed Field of Ruin haha
I think Dockside Extortionist is much less situational than one might expect. And as long as your opponents have 5 or more artifacts and/or enchantments, he goes infinite with Temur Sabertooth. Usually, he's just a two drop that gives you a few treasures which can help you ramp into Korvold by turn 3-4.

Hello everyone. This is the first time posting here. I hope I did all this right sorry if I screwed this up. I'm looking to improve my Yarok deck. I know there are at least two cards on the tip of everyone's tung. Questing Beast and Hydroid Krasis . I would love to add thees but alas they are too pricey. The deck is as follows.
Commander) Yarok, the Desecrated
Creatures) Meteor Golem Dream Eater Gravedigger Evolution Sage District Guide Dungeon Geists Cavalier of Gales Murderous Rider Thief of Sanity Golgari Findbroker Agent of Treachery Cavalier of Thorns Paradise Druid Yarok's Fenlurker God-Eternal Rhonas Cavalier of Night Risen Reef Incubation Druid Voracious Hydra

I looked at Bog Naughty too and I like it. I was also considering Vilis, Broker of Blood for a mean flyer, but I was thinking ultimately I hope Bloodthirsty Aerialist will get big enough that I don't need another high mana-cost flyer.

Have you considered putting in a few Bake into a Pie s for removal that is on curve, makes food, and is great for low income ;)

I'm a noob when it comes to deck building so don't take me too serious, but i think one thing that would improve this build would be to add Bake into a Pie as to have an effective removal spell that also creates food tokens.
