TehGrief on Yahenni of the Endless Offerings (EDH)

Thank you so much for your comment,

I must disagree with your statement that all Yahenni decks should be the same and run a large quantity of board wipes. The true beauty of Magic, and more so Commander/EDH, is that you can take any deck and build it in one-hundred different ways.

If you are worried about the deck not being able to control opponents creatures, there are plenty of cards that do that already:

Additionally, because I am running many different combos with Lifeline, a board wipe wouldn't really do me any good.An important aspect of building a singleton-style deck is that you have to make each of your hundred cards important; each part of your deck should be able to mesh with the rest of it.

However, I always appreciate the time people take to comment on my deck.Thank you for your time.

Rooftop Storm + zombies that cast from graveyard like Gravecrawler or Gisa and Geralf can do it with any zombie once per turn.

Good sac outlets are Ashnod's Altar, Killing Wave, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, and so many others.

Well A) for more out-there counter ideas, my deck has some good ones: +1/+1 Counterspells. It may be a little too out-there but it's some good ideas. Killing Wave, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, and Herald of Secret Streams are stand-outs. Killing wave is a beast.

For enchantments... stuff gets really tough. Green and white have most of the good removal. However, Nevinyrral's Disk is fantastic. I am now putting it in my deck...

Bxbx Thank you for the suggestions. I rather like the dredge idea, I'll look into that. More stuff in the grave faster is always good. I played the deck a few games already and I agree that I definitely need more kill. Those artifacts would be great additions too.

cabal + urborg would be nice to have I'm just not sure about spending that kind of money for lands. I do have some other cards that want swamps though so if I end up loving this deck I'll bite the bullet on those.

Killing Wave is really a pet card of mine. I know it isn't the best but I really don't mind giving people 2 bad options. Only time it lets me down is when someone has enough lifegain to ignore it. That doesn't happen often enough to matter though.

Hi,here are some ideas for your deck:

I would suggest moving the 2 Killing Wave to your sideboard and replacing them with Tragic Slip. In modern you'll typically have more creatures than them, so it hurts you more. In addition you already have tons of kill/sac abilities, a few more removal could round it out nicely. Everything is dying anyways! :D
