K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth Discussion

Woiteck on Phyrexianized Versions of Existing Cards

Boza: Well, there is K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth. And to prove your point, I play Phyrexian Obliterator through him for 8 life all the time and it's absolutely worth it.

Hey, me too. The deck has changed a lot since we started giving advice.

Most of my advice that's different then yours is based on making extort better. To be able to cast more cards each turn and have more draw sources to make sure have more cards in hand to cast. I also think K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is an underrated card with Karlov and it's very good with extort. Starting out the deck was a budget deck, less than $200, which was the main reason I suggested extort and Krrik since it's a budget way for repeatable life gain for Karlov. As more expensive price combos have been added then you're right extort is less needed.

Hey, I agree if you want to play Vamps, have a Vamp army with Sorin then Edgar Markov is the best tribal Vampire Commander. You could play a secondary life gain/drain strategy with Edgar; Cliffhaven Vampire + Righteous Cause.

With Karlov of the Ghost Council you want to play the best cards within the budget that gain you life or use life to give you value which are mostly nonVamp cards. Karlov is the center of attention, you build around him. Edgar is different; you may not even cast Edgar in a game. Instead utilize his eminence ability from the Command Zone; cast Vamps to create Vamp tokens which builds you an army to attack.

Karlov is a win condition, doing Commander damage which is less relying on other creatures to attack. Of course other creatures can attack especially if they have evasion and lifelink. The purpose of creatures with Karlov is to support him in some way.

How I would play Karlov with a $200 budget:

Aetherflux and Collar were just reprinted in the Mystery Booster set; those versions are $4 and $2. The nice thing about extort with Karlov is it gives you a life gain source for important cards that you should play that don't normally gain you life such as mana rocks, enchantments, removal spells, etc. Smothering Tithe + Leonin Elder can be a life gain and counters engine with Karlov.

For sure add Sol Ring.

Lower CMC mana rocks: Arcane Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Dimir Signet that ETB untapped to make black mana are good with Zombies. K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is not a Zombie, but has a powerful ability when playing a lot of black cards. He makes black mana costs able to be paid for with 2 life instead of mana. Make him huge with Gravecrawler and other black Zombies.

Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Bubbling Muck. Rituals are options for ramp especially Dark which can help to cast Scarab fast. Soldevi Adnate not a Zombie, but can be repeatable sac of Zombies to make black mana.

Azeworai Thanks for the recommendations.

Wait, Gary has 2 power? Well he's going in immediately.

I hadn't actually considered self mill, but I will experiment with it.

Protector of the Crown and False Prophet seem like great inclusions, I'm surprised I haven't seen them before.

As for Anje Falkenrath, I've been trying to get a hold of the precon so I can add her, K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth and Chainer, Nightmare Adept.

I will consider Dread Return, Unburial Rites and Selfless Spirit as they seem like good inclusions.

I've found that I often want a sac outlet on board, in case someone uses exile removal (or god forbid Merciless Eviction), but I will probably take out Blood Bairn in favor of the new Woe Strider from TBD.

I will have a look at my removal, but it's worked fine thus far.

You asked about how I add a card in several categories. It's quite simple, you just add several hashtags after the card like this:

1x Vindicate #Removal

1x Viscera Seer #2Power #SacOutlet

1x Yahenni, Undying Partisan #SacOutlet

1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician #2Power #Discard #Draw #SacOutlet

Thanks again for taking the time to look through my list, and have a great day yourself!

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is a much more "rush for the win" type of deck, but it's win it or lose it. If you'll always be playing such a deck in you new playgroup, you'll probably be always be kept in check by other players that will try to slow you down/interrupt you.

Tasigur, the Golden Fang is a way more resilient deck, since you get to use green for ramp and blue for card advantage. Tasigur's delve ability let's you exile useless cards from your graveyard, such that your opponents will be forced to choose between the "good" cards that still might be in your yard. Moreover, Tasigur's ability may be used politically with one opponent in order to team up against another opponent: "If you give me my Putrefy back, I'll get rid of that pesky Breya that's attempting to combo off"... Or similar, you got the point.

Reki, the History of Kamigawa is a good card in Legendary Tribal decks as one of the 99, but I probably won't pick him as a legendary tribal commander, as you're limiting yourself a lot in the possible card pool. One good commander for legendary tribal is Sisay, Weatherlight Captain. Moreover, trying to add on top of that an Infect subtheme without being able to run Blighted Agent, Inexorable Tide or Tainted Strike seems like a bad choice because, again, you're too limited in mono green to do that. One good commander for Infect is Saskia the Unyielding.

Tasigur, the Golden Fang with infinite mana is a classic. K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is probably a bit more original though, and equally powerful I would say. Personally I would go with Sultai, but that's just because it's my favorite color combo. Honestly, I don't think you could go too wrong with any of these choices.
