Henwy_UltimateTimmy hello!

May I recommend Blowfly Infestation for your consideration? It works well with Hapatra and synergizes really well with Nest of Scarabs.

Also consider Karn's Bastion for a land slot since you can use it to Proliferate.

bushido_man96: With a few edits, I'm at 54.99 right now. If I cut all the color-fixing lands, I'd be down to 54.09 -- the only cards in the list which are over 1.09 are Black Sun's Zenith, Eldrazi Monument, Skullclamp, Blowfly Infestation, Sol Ring, Phyrexian Reclamation, Eldritch Evolution, Animate Dead, Victimize, Generous Patron, Devoted Druid, Soul Snuffers, and Shared Summons. I think I want all of those over Bastion, but I'm not certain. Or maybe something will drop in price over the next week, who knows.

Thanks JRaynor! I kinda wish that Kels was Grixis, so I could throw in Vicious Shadows, or some of the R/B Wither creatures.

I do have a -1/-1 counter list with Kels at the helm. It features stuff like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Crumbling Ashes, Blowfly Infestation, Nest of Scarabs and Necroskitter, but it feels less focused than this list. I'll likely revisit it and make it public.

Gidgetimer on What is your favorite combo ...

Is all of them an acceptable answer? Because I have never met a 3 or less card combo I didn't love. I even love some Rube Goldberg-esque combos that have silly amounts of moving pieces. If I have to name some specifically:

Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond

Ashnod's Altar + Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Blowfly Infestation + Blood Artist

Put Blowfly Infestation back in main board, removed one Ayara, First of Locthwain from sideboard, moved The Ozolith to sideboard.

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 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.
