Is it a deliberate choice to be combo free? Simply adding Sifter of Skulls, Pitiless Plunderer, or Pawn of Ulamog will allow to to go infinite with Nether Traitor and Phyrexian Altar

Hey, nice deck, I like the idea, madness is tricky I think, I love the idea of having all of the synergies but I’d pick a main one and stream line the others to help you decide what to remove.

I thi The suggestions I would make for the list as is are:


Cut Pawn of Ulamog and add in Pitiless Plunderer

Pros. It’s treasure tokens so much better for mana fixing as adds one of any colour, not colourless. It’s whenever another creature dies, not non-token creature. Which can also be very beneficial.

Cons. It’s 1 mana more expensive. It’s not a vampire...

I think you could cut down on the removal as you’re running a lot of it, maybe adding in Attrition would be good because it’s constant. Slaughter could be cut as could Unfulfilled Desires If you could budget for it Dream Halls could be very good, because it’s a madness outlet that lets you cast another spell too.

Swap Kalastria Highborn for Blood Artist too, You don’t have to pay to activate it and it’s easier to cast.


I hope you found this useful :)

KibaAlpha I hear you on the Dark Ritual and friends, I will reconsider after I get more games under my belt, my gut feeling is that I will stay away from them and continue to rely on mana rocks and treasure tokens to ramp. I expect Pawn of Ulamog , Pitiless Plunderer , Sifter of Skulls , Black Market , Revel in Riches and Smothering Tithe will be doing alot of work.

I will however take your recommendation and add Orzhov Locket to my mana rocks, my only copy of Arcane Signet will stay in my other deck for now.

Erebos, God of the Dead is a great card and I already have a copy but I will instead add Erebos, Bleak-Hearted as soon as Theros beyond Death set is released. I'll also be adding Yawgmoth, Thran Physician for more draw.

Gutterbones and Relentless Dead are great suggestions thanks, Tenacious Dead is already in the deck. I am not set on Tokens at all, self recurring creatures are better.

Lanzo493 on Korvold budget sacrifice

Revel in Riches , Pitiless Plunderer and Brass's Bounty are great cards that give you lots of things to sacrifice. So does Pawn of Ulamog . And From Beyond . And Mycoloth . They're all great. If you've got some cash to burn then Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact will win you games. Butcher of Malakir is a good budget choice that is still great. Springbloom Druid and Harrow are ramp cards that also sacrifice. Terramorphic Expanse , Jund Panorama , and Blighted Woodland are more lands you can sacrifice. I love adding Rogue's Passage to decks where my commander gets really big. If you get that 21 damage in, you can kill someone with commander damage really easily with how big Korvold gets. Smothering Abomination can help you get a lot draw. Font of Fertility is a budget version of Wayfarer's Bauble , but both are still good ramp and sac effects.

cassa on Teysa, Orzhov Scion

Hi, thank you for your advices, they're precisely what i needed! First of all i know that the description is rough and approximate, when i'll arrive to 100 cards beeing sure i'll fix it once for all.

I didn't consider Victimize , but it's perfect for this deck: I'll add immediately. Same for Razaketh, the Foulblooded that i own and Altar of Dementia .

Fetid Heath , Phyrexian Tower and Diabolic Intent are surely better, and are in my wishlist for now, but i'm already investing in my Kaalia deck and except for some budget utilities (like Wake the Dead ) i prefer to wait.

Talking about the cutting (that was my biggest problem):

Hey man cool build. Definitely a +1 from me!

My version of this is a little more competitive than most, but I don't currently have my Yawgmoth deck on tappedout. Some cards that I've found particularly useful are these:

Sengir Autocrat , Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Myr Battlesphere , Abhorrent Overlord , and Chittering Witch

These cards give you a ton of extra creatures to sacrifice to your commander. This means you'll be drawing more cards, getting closer to your win cons, and removing more creatures via -1/-1 counters.

They will also pair very well with your Sifter of Skulls and Pawn of Ulamog as well as all the other great death triggers you have going on.

If you are looking for a good infinite combo (I'm not a fan of them myself, but I don't judge those who enjoy them), add in Geralf's Messenger . Sacrifice him, he comes back and drains your opponent immediately, put the -1/-1 counter on him and draw, repeat until you kill someone. The only problem is that you'll be losing life as well from your commander. Add a Blood Artist to the combo and it'll cancel out the life loss and you're infinite.

Hope this helps! If you want some interesting deck ideas, I'd love for you to check mine out and give me an upvote. Feedback is welcome!
