I like Sewer Nemesis and Apocalypse Demon for fun fat bois.

Careful Consideration is pretty weak. I'd recommend Final Parting or Jarad's Orders instead

As dragonstryke said Sewer Nemesis's first ability is not a triggered ability so Yarok has no interaction with it.

If we use something that does have an ETB that is also part of a set of linked abilities the other ability will see and interact with both choices. For example Phyrexian Ingester will get buffed from both cards exiled with its Imprint ability.

607.3. If, within a pair of linked abilities, one ability refers to a single object as “the exiled card,” “a card exiled with [this card],” or a similar phrase, and the other ability has exiled multiple cards (usually because it was copied), the ability refers to each of the exiled cards. If that ability asks for any information about the exiled card, such as a characteristic or converted mana cost, it gets multiple answers. If these answers are used to determine the value of a variable, the sum of the answers is used. If that ability performs any actions on the exiled card, it performs that action on each exiled card.

The first ability of Sewer Nemesis is not an ETB triggered ability. It is a replacement effect that modifies how it enters the battlefield. Therefore, Yarok, the Desecrated does not interact with Sewer Nemesis (it will not trigger twice, resolve twice, and remember the last choice as it is not a triggered ability).

The ETB's Yarok, the Desecrated interacts with are triggered abilities of permanents you control which trigger off a permanent entering the battlefield and not replacement effects. The key here is that triggered abilities begin with "When", "Whenever", or "At".

Relevant Rules:

603.6a Enters-the-battlefield abilities trigger when a permanent enters the battlefield. These are written, “When [this object] enters the battlefield, . . . “ or “Whenever a [type] enters the battlefield, . . .” Each time an event puts one or more permanents onto the battlefield, all permanents on the battlefield (including the newcomers) are checked for any enters-the-battlefield triggers that match the event.


614.1c Effects that read “[This permanent] enters the battlefield with . . . ,” “As [this permanent] enters the battlefield . . . ,” or “[This permanent] enters the battlefield as . . . “ are replacement effects.

I’m going to use a Sewer Nemesis in my Yarrok the Desecrated EDH deck and I wonder if the Nemesis’s ETB effect triggers twice? And if so, does it count the cards in two players graveyards and combine the numbers?

I'd say you want to add Blade of Selves , Azra Oddsmaker , and Cavalier of Flame from the maybeboard in exchange for Sewer Nemesis , Final Parting , and Rotting Rats . Maybe find space for Megrim -like effects as well? Also, I like Codex Shredder over Wand of Vertebrae as it can mess with top-of-the-library tutors, get something back in a pinch, and turn a Vampiric Tutor into another Entomb. Sweet deck!
