Blowfly Infestation Discussion

TheBoraxKid Thanks for your suggestions. I've recently bought some cards from a friend of mine who sold his collection and some of the cards you suggested were in there. Ayara, First of Locthwain, Blowfly Infestation and Bubbling Muck were among them and i'll try and eventually put into the final list. Grave Titan is not in the list because i wanted to lower the mana curve. Jet Medallion is an auto inclusion if it weren't for the price.
I saw your deck and left a +1. I'm also testing (not the best moment to do that, so i was testing to be more precise) Tombstone Stairwell.. this card played well the few times i used it. I've not access to a lot of mana but in a more performing build like yours may be even better. I got the idea from the primer deck https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/black-plague-on-the-rocks-yawgmoth-edh-primer/ the owner of the list explained to me how good the card was in the comments and i wanted to give it a try. It looks busted so you may want to try it too.

Hey, love the list, +1 from me.
I too have a Yawgmoth list I’ve been fine-tuning for awhile now. I’ve got the opportunity to play it quite a bit and I feel like it’s getting a lot tighter. If you’re interested in checking it out you can find it here: Nocturnal Majesty: Sworn to Black We'll Always Be
Some all star cards that I have has great success with are
Ayara, First of Locthwain: this card can do so much chip damage over the game, not to mention Yawgmoth decks tend to lose life pretty aggressively. This card helps a ton with that and can be sort of a mini-Commander.
Blowfly Infestation: helps wipe the opponent’s field at double the speed. Pretty powerful stuff.
Dark Ritual, Bubbling Muck, Jet Medallion: Probably some of the strongest ramp for mono-black Commanders and helps recast Yawgmoth if he is destroyed. Remember, you’ll have a huge target on your Commander’s back simply by playing him, so make sure you can afford to recast him multiple times per game.
Grave Titan: This boi is just straight up USDA certified BEEF. You’ll obviously get the 3 bodied just from casting him but if left unchecked, it’s not unheard of to get upwards of 4-8 zombies. Plus, having a 6/6 Deathtoucher on defense is pretty nice too.
Tell me what you think of my suggestions and feel free to take a peek at my deck if you’d like and tell me what you think.
Looking forward to chatting.

Wow thanks for all the suggestions.
Blowfly Infestation I considered, however I’m not trying to kill creatures in this deck, I am very familiar with it as I run it in my Happatra deck.
Corrupted Resolve I like it, I’ll consider, however which counterspell would you cut to add in?
Cruel Sadist just puts counters on itself, and I want to put them on other things.
Rishkar, Peema Renegade I had in originally but instead added in cryptolith rite, it’s harder to remove and let’s me use all creature not just ones with counters on.
Crumbling Ashes is another tricky one, ideally I don’t want to kill the creatures I’m putting counters on, because I want to copy them with Volrath. Also, it is not a may trigger so I would have to kill something, and if it was only my creatures with a counter on I’m blowing up my own stuff.
Deepglow Skate once again, don’t need lots of counters on creatures, just one.
Grim Affliction I did consider but again, proliferate isn’t necessary in the build and I can put a counter on something for cheaper.
The cards in the fun suggestions I also looked at, but I just want to play around with putting counters on other creatures. That being said, I had not seen Musician that is bloody brilliant and is going straight in the list!!

Really fun build, and deliciously quirky!

soufianhriz: Mmmm. Yes and no. Is Hapatra good enough for that? Yes. Is this deck a decent starting point for trying to build a cEDH version of Hapatra? Yes, this deck does well.
Is this deck quite ready for that table? Not quite, unless you get a very good hand -- and even then, I'd modify the deck to have a lot more stax pieces (taxing spells with Trinisphere and Sphere of Resistance, shutting down mana counters/removal, graveyard hate, etc).
Basically, I'd slim down the deck a little more, to fit in a lot more stax (since we can't play counters).
But I've played this against Food Chain lists to great success (because we snipe their mana dorks), and I suspect that we'd keep Najeela decently under control too, especially if we run Blowfly Infestation. Doomsday is trickier, since we really have no good ways to prevent Zur's tutoring in our colors (apart from "shoot him on sight"). I've never been super impressed by Curious Control, honestly, when I've played against it, so I'd rank that as the lowest of those threats (without knowing about your meta).
Definitely add Torpor Orb too. It's great against the current cEDH meta.

WUBRG97: Hmmm. If I were trying to tone down the power level, I'd add a few of my older favorite cards back in: Parallel Lives, Garruk Relentless Flip, Archfiend of Ifnir, Survival of the Fittest... But I'm probably not going to make an explicit separate list with these changes. I will say that I've never been a fan of Blowfly Infestation here; it causes Problems and is often a dead card. I have easier-to-tutor-for combos :)

I see that this list has evolved into a very optimized/competitive list, with the inclusions of mana dorks, moxes and various other inclusions.
