Whispersilk Cloak & Bladed Pinions & Cranial Plating!!! & Executioner's Hood & Vorrac Battlehorns

Dece equips that boost power like Bonesplitter & Darksteel Axe & Vulshok Morningstar

Rite of Consumption DOME 'EM


Howl from Beyond & Shade's Form

Blessing of Leeches & Butcher's Glee & Skeletal Grimace & Unhallowed Pact & Supernatural Stamina (Regenerate is generally great, especially when repeatable)

Slagwurm Armor if you want Yargle to be a 9/9 for the memes

Something to consider might actually be mono-black control with Yargle as a finisher. Maybe I'm wrong and you could just outspeed people with Yargle's IMMENSE POWER but I think he's a bit too high cmc in colours that don't necessarily allow for much evasion/protection to just get in ASAP. Typical mono B control stuff looks like this:

Corrupt + Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Pestilence + Crypt Rats + Evincar's Justice

Feel free to disagree tho, 2 swings and Yargle kills someone without any buffs in PDH which is pretty DANK. Just going all in on evasion could probably just do it in some metas. Fear & Intimidate are available in black plentifully to boot. Sleeper's Guile & Traitor's Clutch.

Happy brewing, looking forward to see what you make of it!

Here are some changes I would make:

The first changes are because I personally think instant speed interaction is better than it being limited to your turn. Second is because Path of Ancestry is strictly better even though it only helps with one creature. Third is because I think Theft of Dreams will be more useful overall. Fourth changes are to implement a new combo with Cloud of Faeries: use the same combo as Drake but if you have two of those enchantments or one with Simic Growth Chamber it will produce unlimited mana.

Besides that, I would maybe find a way to work in Mystic Remora. For beats you could add Executioner's Hood. I'll think about it some more.

You could probably swap out the 2 Executioner's Hood, 4 Gatstaf Shepherd  Flip and 1 or 2 Full Moon's Rise. Neglected Heirloom  Flip is a really cool card for Werewolves but I wouldn't run a playset since it doesn't do much on its own.

I second the comments to get rid of single target pump spells. You might instead go for stuff like Prowler's Helm or Executioner's Hood to get your commander through unblocked. Also, Pollenbright Wings might be fun. Sigil of Valor also. Stuff like Windstorm, Silklash Spider, Tornado Elemental, Needle Storm & Gale Force would help you destroy fliers to get your army through unblocked.

Bruse is actually VERY GOOD. Ever heard of Rafiq of the Many? Well now you have that with lifelink and potentially 4 colors.

Straight up VOLTRON. Batterskull, the mirran swords, Lashwrithe/Strata Scythe + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Whispersilk Cloak, Executioner's Hood, etc. Probably pair it with Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist or Thrasios, Triton Hero since that's card draw is your biggest problem. I'd go with Thrasios so you can just slam sum Giant Growth effects/Rancor pump spells.

For skulk there is Behind the Scenes and Skeleton Key

For intimidate there is Nim Deathmantle, Gruesome Deformity, Grisly Transformation, and Executioner's Hood

For fear there is Cover of Darkness, Dirge of Dread, Intimidation, Ebony Charm, Profane Command, Sleeper's Guile.

There's also Odric, Lunarch Marshal who copies keywords, Odric, Master Tactician who allows you to declare no blockers, Akroma's Memorial which has flying and pro two colours, a kind of evasion.

There's a whole deck that's pretty good based around 1-shotting with this commander.


It's got a lot of good comments on it as well if you need more ideas.

I would cut a lot of this though. There are just a lot better options out there.Cuts:

You already have an evasive commander & dragons with both Trample and Flying so I don't see why you'd need stuff like Prowler's Helm and Executioner's Hood as well. I would put in stuff that's more likely to keep your things alive i.e. Darksteel Plate, Dosan the Falling Leaf or City of Solitude.
