When I was taking a look at this list you have here I just started wondering is there a second ME out there. A ton of these cards are my pet cards that I have never seen anyone else play. A few things I would recommend adding to this deck are Squall Line and Toxic Deluge . One more card that I have always been impressed by that I recommend you add just for pure value is Herald of Leshrac , based on the cards on this list I bet 100% you will love this card forever after the first time you play it.

ClockworkSwordfish on Even in death I serve (Alesha EDH)

You have plenty of deadly utility creatures, which is great, but a wonderful trick is to bring back creatures who are "bigger" than their stats might suggest. A great example is Clockwork Dragon - so long as it's outside of play, including in the graveyard, it has zero power. But the second Alesha animates him, you suddenly have a 6/6 flyer. Other good options include Arcbound Overseer , Sewer Nemesis , Nighthowler and Herald of Leshrac .

Motys on Yennett All Odds, No Evens

So first iteration of my yenett deck was put to the test. 3 games, 3 wins. Worth mentioning i'm playing only in paper and that our LGS is small and deck are rather casual (i believe strongest decks are like 6/10 in term of power). We tend to play long games. My build runs 38 lands (21 basics, 1 fetch), and 10 even cards. Cannot provide decklist yet. My build isn't very focused on single target removal. Thou i need to add some removal for enchantments/artifacts. No Future Sight, Sensei, Soothsaying. Rise of the Dark Realms, Anguished Unmaking i have in other decks.

Even cards are : Strionic Resonator (damn this one is strong), Swiftfoot Boots , some 2cmc mana rocks, Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Smothering Tithe (Can this get ban already?), Overwhelming Denial .

Since this is "casual", only wheel effect im running along this Smothering Tithe is Dark Deal .

Liliana Vess performed really well. I don't have Animatou. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is probably fine addition to the deck. Dream Cache is probably better than Frantic Search? Living Death is too risky in my opinion.

To protect myself and yenett i'm running packet of : Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Sphere of Safety , Shielded by Faith , Karmic Justice , Bastion Protector

Ethersworn Adjudicator was really good in my games.

Counterspell package: Stubborn Denial , Disallow , Overwhelming Denial .

Fun's over pack : Time Warp , Temporal Mastery

Examples of odd cards im running: Herald of Leshrac , Artisan of Kozilek , Brilliant Ultimatum , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Blatant Thievery , Void Winnower , Inkwell Leviathan , Mind's Dilation , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Platinum Angel , Angelic Arbiter

If You want to improve Yenett and make deck real nasty , extra turn spells are probably way to go (Nexus of Fate might be really strong). Old Ulamog and New Emrakul are also Odd cards. Magister Sphinx , Enigma Sphinx , Mother of Runes , Iona, Approach of the Second Sun can also be very good.

Hope this helps a little and i'll see another Yenett video on the channel :D

There are a few ways.

Contagion Clasp and Inexorable Tide have proliferate, which would increase the age counters on Herald of Leshrac .

Paradox Haze adds an additional upkeep, which can increase the effect of Herald. Paradox can be copied by Estrid's Invocation , Copy Enchantment , or Clever Impersonator .

As Foretold , Aether Vial , and Braid of Fire (if Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir or Leyline of Anticipation is in play) could help cheat him onto the field for less mana than hard-casting him

Clever Impersonator or Followed Footsteps can copy Herald and amplify his land-stealing effect even more. Followed Footsteps can amplify it even more with additional copies of Herald over time or with additional upkeeps from Paradox

Anything that affects card-draw easily affects the chances of drawing Herald, and there are quite a few cards that do that in the deck.

Make a Deck that revolves around these three cards. Braid of Fire , Herald of Leshrac , Karplusan Minotaur . Go!!! Make it fucking disgusting and to make it even more Challenging let's make the budget $500.

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip is a card I forgot about - great tech for your general! Including that, you have about 6 cards of CMC Three or less to help you get Rakdos deployed. I like Shepherd of Rot better than Pyrohemia just to add to your count. If you need more cards like this Honden of Infinite Rage, Granite Shard, and Chalice of Life  Flip don't die to a Wrath. Leechridden Swamp and Piranha Marsh are other suggestions. Shizo, Death's Storehouse helps in any black deck where the Commander wants to attack.

Shadowblood Ridge I dislike since it forces you to contort your tapping of lands to get the mana you need. Signets are fine because they're acceleration, but playing this land any time before turn 4 seems a bit risky with double-R or double-B spells.

The deck seems light on removal (both targeted and sweepers). I'm guessing you intend to be aggressive and hope for the best the entire game since you have no haste, hexproof, nor shroud. Flamekin Village and Hanweir Battlements help. Also be careful with Herald of Leshrac... don't want to lose a few friends...

Overall I assess you have a very optimistic game plan.
