shade_o_mirth: Lifeline is very, very dangerous -- careful playing that card, it can easily get you killed. Coffin Queen isn't a bad idea, though! I have an extra in my binder that I could test with...

I really like this decklist, and used it as a guide for my own Kroxa deck. I swapped in some cards like Coffin Queen and Lifeline to try and maximize ETB triggers and force overreactions from the control players. Coffin Queen can work as a counter to reanimator style decks that just discard creatures when you make them discard.

It bugs me a little that Caretaker is only usable in the upkeep. But Whisper, Blood Liturgist trades 2:1... and Coffin Queen is probably too mana intensive.

What do you think of an Ever After Sidisi, Undead Vizier + Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger loop for a reusable reanimate on Kroxa every turn?

Several cards for you to consider from my own Yawg decklist:

  1. Coffin Queen . It doesn't survive Demon of Dark Schemes , unfortunately, so it may be a one or the other kind of thing there. But it scales well with your opponents. I run both.

  2. Aetherworks Marvel . Uses the same energy counters you'll be getting for Demon of the Dark Schemes, and provides some slower card advantage for doing what you're going to be doing anyway: sacrificing stuff. It's easy to fill up on counters and the activation is instant speed, allowing you to pull off surprising, wonky stuff sometimes.

  3. Liliana, Death's Majesty is a versatile planeswalkers for a reanimator build of Yawgmoth: she creates fodder, she reanimates, and she mills you cards to potentially reanimate. In a pinch you could resolve her and proliferate twice to wipe the board.

For cuts, I'm not huge on the following:

I like your list. It is similar to mine, eschewing infinite combos and going for value. Plus, you are running Coffin Queen . I love Coffin Queen. Kudos.

A few fun suggestions: Grimoire of the Dead and Aetherworks Marvel . Both can be proliferated and both work well with Yawg as a sacrifice outlet.

Were you running a few more creatures, I'd recommend Deathrender . You can do some silly things in one turn by having Yawgmoth draw into more creatures to feed into it.

Any reason you're running Illusionist's Bracers over Rings of Brighthearth (other than budget)? The rings interact with more of your deck. Always fun to copy planeswalker effects. You could even throw some fetch lands in to get more value out of it. Biggest downside would be putting a bigger target on yourself, if folks assume you'd be running Basalt Monolith alongside it. I do not.

Good stuff, thanks for posting!

ThaneGarrus Happy to explain. There is no Stax theme. Everything that you see being stax is actually a sac outlet. I can choose to use tabby as a sac outlet that is harder to remove than the others. It works in conjunction with Dawn of the Dead and Lifeline I want to be able to sac every upkeep and every end step wheich means i use 2-3 sac outlets per turn. The more death triggers the better. And remember people dont have decks designed around Lifeline . A lot of the meta where I am is Storm and control decks there are not a lot of creature decks so lifline has actually won me the game a few times already.

The Altar of Dementia mill is also just bec I want a sac outlet. Having a Sac outlet that can mill when you have 40 power on board is very powerful.

The deck is designed to let players kill anything they want exile anything they want and it dosent matter the deck bounces back trowing crazy token combos back in your face. I dont care what other players are doing most of the time and if i do I use Coffin Queen and Helm of Possession to stop them. People see the death triggers and assume they should take the sac outlets off the board or from the deck, but it dosent matter I have so many ways to sac my cards they do nothing but answer me all game. You will be the target all game with this deck and thats fine they wont be able to build a board while they have to answer all the recursion and tokens.

Masterful I ended up adding Seal before i started playing.

Play testing has been amazing. With the updated list I won a 3 person 3 pod tournament in spectacular fashion. I won the first pod by Helm of Possession my opponents Coffin Queen keeping myself alive after being milled to 0 cards by the Phenax, God of Deception player milled me out, using queen to grab Golgari Thug from the GY and targeting creatures in the yard to finish out the game with combat. It was amazing. The final pod I T1 fetch landed and Enlightened Tutor for Mana Crypt . T2 Yawgmoth's Will my fetch land and played Enlightened Tutor for Eldrazi Monument . After that it was all over. I ended up killing first player with Commander Damage for Flavor and killed the last player with 16x 4/4 Wurm Tokens.

I had some issues with SAC outlets being stolen from a player but other than that I think I am happy with the deck for now. Not running any hate and annoying disruption gives gthe deck a fun play feel being able to hold off opponets from attacking you first. Will see how it play tests over the next few weeks as people become familiar with it. Everyone that has lost to it loved the deck and had nothing but positive things to say. Card draw felt hard with Monument and Skullclamp was worthless after T2 in both games. I feel like its only good if i have it in my open hand and a 1/1 to sac.

Additions i am going to make are Coffin Queen .
