Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Discussion

Chuff_Bucket on Mind Munch

Hey, I'm digging this list so far!

I would recommend cutting Glimpse the Unthinkable. A 1-time mill effect that only hits for 10 cards (at $30, to boot) just isn't going to have enough impact in the average game. I would HIGHLY recommend replacing it with Altar of the Brood. This card looks innocuous, but it does freakin' WORK. I played a Lazav deck for a while, and that card always over-performed, especially when dropped on T1.

Additionally, I would recommend replacing Duskmantle, House of Shadow for Nephalia Drownyard. For just one more mana, you get 2 more cards! You'll probably also want to run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers to help power out some of those huge X spells. Mind Grind for X = 20 is basically a game-ender in its own right, and that's easy to do with the Coffers doin' work.

I might also recommend Jace's Archivist. He may not seem like a good mill card, but he gets people churning through decks REALLY quickly. Not to mention he has crazy synergy with Sphinx's Tutelage. To that point, Jace's Erasure was another over-performer in the Lazav deck I played. I would cut Millstone for it.

It might be beneficial to replace Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger with one of the OG Eldrazi Titans, simply for the fact that they have the "shuffle your graveyard back into your library" clause. It would help you protect yourself against any incidental self-mill you'll be incurring throughout the course of a game.

Beyond that, you might want to consider adding a few cards that do graveyard shenanigans, like Sepulchral Primordial and Reanimate and Memory Plunder. You'll certainly have a lot of juicy targets!

My only other advice is to bump up your land count. Not by much, but 36 is usually bare-bones minimum unless your curve tops out at 4. I might recommend 37 or 38 for this build.

Okay, so I do realize you ask for possible cuts, but I've honestly got too many things to list option-wise to say where a cut could/should be made. Some examples of options you may have missed:

Weird Harvest, Mana Flare, Dictate of Karametra, Howling Mine, Heartwood Storyteller, Shizuko, Caller of Autumn, Skullwinder, Horn of Greed, Helm of Awakening, Spectral Searchlight, Primal Vigor, Seed the Land, Bubble Matrix, Flux, Beacon of Immortality, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, Liege of the Hollows, Ghosts of the Innocent, Pulsemage Advocate, Orzhov Advokist, Wishmonger, Tangleroot. Storm Cauldron, Grove of the Burnwillows, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Arbiter of Knollridge, Dakra Mystic, Concordant Crossroads, and

(my last two to mention that I cannot believe YOU don't even mention them how could you possibly have missed these and I'm metaphorically running out of air here)

Phelddagrif and Questing Phelddagrif.

BREATHES

whew. Okay, firstly I do not do "tldr" summaries, so I'm afraid you'll have to sift through the above the slow way (which that isn' even an exhaustive list btw).

Secondly, to help you sift through the above I would ask is there a specific manner in which you are wanting to help people? Do you like seeing certain gameplans win or hate others? By example is that I can see some cards like Hive Mind being too helpful possibly towards "storm" decks, but if you're playing a catch-all type of group hug then that's no big deal.

Another idea is are you into fringe group hug effects? By which I mean playing Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth just to help everyone mana fix that uses black. Or even playing Ink-Treader Nephilim in tandem with say Tempt with Reflections to give everybody an extra copy of literally every creature on their board and them some. Heck, if you ran Rite of Replication you could let everyone have EVERY creature on the board. The nephilim isn't directly a group hug card here but it has the potential to hug. Kinda like Guided Passage no?

Just some food for thought. ;D

You mention having a mana curve problem, since you already have a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth have you thought about getting a Cabal Coffers to help your ramp?

Not that I've played your deck before, but it looks like you already have a lot of ramp and card draw to be able to support a deck with an average CMC of 4.1 with no problem. If you really wanna take down the average, you just gotta get rid of Scour from Existence. Maybe replace it with Dismember, Go for the Throat, Damnation, or even Nevinyrral's Disk. The only 7-drop you have I actually like is Repay in Kind. I'd say the others are all expendable. But like I said before, from here it looks like you have plenty of ramp to support the deck just fine as it stands.

You also mentioned a goal of low life total, I might consider Sorin Markov for his -3 to get you to a low life total for someone, especially if anyone in your playgroup likes to gain infinite life.

Hope you found this helpful.

APPLE01DOJ on Tectonic Edge Question

I have 4 lands, 2 Swamps, an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and a Blinkmoth Nexus.

My opponent has 4 lands, 2 are Tectonic Edge.

If he uses Tectonic Edge target a land, and in response use the 2nd Tectonic Edge land to target a 2nd land what happens?

Come to the dark side, we have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

MiceandMen No you just have to sac down to one. So you sac the original Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage is now a Dark Depths with no counters, thus procing the last ability.

Have you thought of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth/Vampire Hexmage as a possible turn two Dark Depths proc?

You've already got Grafted Exoskeleton, so why not throw in Mycosynth Lattice and Bosh, Iron Golem. All permanents become artifacts once the lattice is dropped, so equip the exoskeleton to Bosh and you can just start throwing things at people for 8 infect damage. He's a nice "beatstick" with trample too, but the lattice will enable you to use his activated ability. Funny, stupid, AND degenerate. What do you think?

Also, Phyrexian Crusader is pro white/red, not pro white/green, but it's still funny.

However, why have Odric, Lunarch Marshal, when you could run Akroma's Memorial, which is way more fun!

Finally, you could run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Liliana of the Dark Realms. Lili can solve color problems, and, if her ultimate goes off, Urborg makes each of your lands able to produce . Urborg also makes Sheoldred, Whispering One engage her swampwalk against everyone, which can also be really funny.

I assume you're already aware that Sheoldred and Sidisi, Undead Vizier means having a reusable tutor. It's a pretty neat combo that I've actually seen before.

Thought it weird not to see Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with the Vampire Hexmage/Dark Depths combo. But still great. +1
