Black Market


Whenever a creature dies, put a charge counter on Black Market.

At the beginning of your precombat main phase, add to your mana pool for each charge counter on Black Market.

TheMillKid I think I might throw in Cabal Stronghold as the baby Cabal Coffers, since I mostly play in paper and don't want to shell out so much for a single card, at least not right now haha. Demonic Tutor is next on my buy list, and Black Market I like, I might throw it in again to test it out, my meta is full of removal like Krosan Grip and Return to Dust type cards so I'm sure its a kill-on-sight card, but I'll give it a whirl. Thanks for the suggestions!

A good, cheap way to generate lots of mana would be Cabal Stronghold , and if money is no object Cabal Coffers . Non-creature cards that don't die to Massacre Girl, but that work when creatures die could also be good! Black Market comes to mind.

I'd also definitely recommend Demonic Tutor over Diabolic Tutor.

Happy Brewing!

I'd add Death Baron cheap lord, Quasiduplicate for copy lord, Mana Geode , Dimir Signet , and Commander's Sphere for ramp, Graf Harvest for zombie boosting, Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Liliana, the Necromancer for reasons, and Black Market for getting lots of black mana

I would recommend taking out some more mana intensive spells, like Overwhelming Intellect and Stir the Sands , and adding in more land. A good mana base for a commander deck is usually 35-38 lands. 29 is generally too low unless you have plenty of ramp. Now stay with me here,

Daedalus19876 on Black Plague, On The Rocks: Yawgmoth EDH [PRIMER]

gradstudent: Oh, he's 100% going in here :D he's perfect for the deck.

sam171z: Thank you, both for your kind words and your incredibly helpful comments! In order:

I tested Black Market and had mixed feelings, I just don't want to spend 5 mana for a mana source that will only pay off the next turn, despite the high ceiling.

Diabolic Intent is in here already, but it's definitely awesome ;)

Puppeteer Clique is a very neat idea here, I'm honestly irritated I didn't think of it XD

Night Incarnate is intriguing, I'll consider it. I'd almost rather run something like Yahenni's Expertise , though?

Lashwrithe was awesome in this deck's predecessor (a Yahenni list) but I think I'll pass on it here (I have more efficient ways to win than Voltron IMO).

Priest of Forgotten Gods is awesome, but I feel like our Commander generally does the trick better. I'll contemplate :)

I don't think that Karn, Silver Golem fits here necessarily... but what DOES work amazingly (and I can't believe I've never thought of) is Karn, the Great Creator ! That's getting IMMEDIATELY slammed in here :D

Hey love the deck its got my vote. what is your take on Black Market , Diabolic Intent which could work better then Vampiric Tutor , Puppeteer Clique which with Mikaeus, its a repeatable primordail, Night Incarnate , even Lashwrithe can come as an unexpected beatdown, and Priest of Forgotten Gods . Will some of these Help, and when you get a chance, can you check out my deck, there are on your wall.

griffstick on Muldrotha vs Yarok

3 weeks ago

Yarok is better because Muldrotha has a huge weakness. Graveyard hate. One Rest in Peace or any other similar effect and you're done. But the same could be said about Yarok. One Torpor Orb and you're done. Only difference is torpor orb stops creatures. Yarok cares about all the triggered effects not just creatures, and not the entering.

Theres so many strategies you can go. Reanimation decks. Mill decks. Draw and discard decks. Control decks. Token decks. Walkers. Or just value.

I'm gonna list a few cards that trigger in many effects except etb effects. To hammer home the point that torpor will not shut down a yarok deck.

I can go on and on. Yarok all the way better
