Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Discussion
18 hours ago
I'll try going a little lighter on lands, good call.
Would it maybe be reasonable to cut down on card draw since Yidris gives so much card advantage from cascade?
GQ and Bog are both meta choices for my playgroup, the former for Rogue's Passage and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth while the latter is there to hose a Kresh deck that runs some nasty big dudes and lots of recursion.
GQ not making colored mana is a good enough strike against it to take out but Bog gives such a huge upside and Shinka even comes in untapped so I'll likely keep them in for now but keep them in mind.

@Icbrgr: Good luck with this deck! It sounds like fun!
I was brewing 4C Land Destruction for a while and really liked playing it, but then they banned Deathrite Shaman.
The only other suggestion I can think of is adding Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoths to the deck so that you can tap your Ghost Quarters and Tectonic Edges for . It also lets you play cards like Mutavault or Stalking Stones more efficiently. It also makes Mutilate and Corrupt insane. I think even with a limited budget, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is the one card definitely worth investing in.

some relatively inexpensive lands you can run to smooth out your colored mana supply include:
Lavaclaw Reaches, Dragonskull Summit, Shadowblood Ridge, Sulfurous Springs, Smoldering Marsh.
also in 2-color i would consider not running cabal coffers unless you also run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.
also would consider Talisman of Indulgence and Rakdos Signet over Thought Vessel

I don't know how competitive/expensive you want to get, but whenever I see a tribal deck, I think Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial are good choices. Other notables, (depending on what rout you want to go):
Vile Rebirth: Instant speed dudes just seems good. Plus it can interrupt graveyard interaction with creatures.
Blood Scrivener if you feel like you're top decking a little too much
Lord of the Undead for recursion
Geralf's Messenger for annoyance
Diregraf Ghoul for aggro
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to ensure you have that black mana (especially if you go with Geralf's)
Fetches/Shocks(?) to thin out the deck
All in all, seems like it could be annoying!

Why not put Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth since so many things deal directly with swamps

I find it interesting that the linked Turbofroggy list plays Lake of the Dead but no Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Is it just there to basically draw a card in place of land drop or am I missing something?

Mightyhulk1, Hey man! Thanks for the upvote and im happy to give some suggestions to make it a bit cheaper. If you stick to the discard hellbent ability and tribal theme then you can easily cut some of the pricier splashier cards.
First off the more expensive lands can be swapped out, Bloodstained Mire for any colour relevant panorama, Blood Crypt and Sulfurous Springs for some tap lands, strip mine for Ghost Quarter and finally Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth could just come out for a basic swamp or another tap land.
Arifacts can change by ditching the swords and greaves for cheaper alternatives. Change greaves to Swiftfoot Boots and then the swords can be replaced with any budget equipment you think fits with the rest of the deck or that you simply enjoy playing!
Enchantments can be cut down by replacing Aggravated Assault with Berserkers' Onslaught as it is still giving you that extra push but doesnt allow you to pull off any combos or trickery with multiple combat phases.
Creatures can be cut really simply to just focus more on the tribal aspect so replacing pricey creatures with other minotaurs is the easy/quick way to go about it. Its hard to say what kind of price tag we are going to see on Hazoret the Fervent but to replace her simply look at what she's doing for the deck and find a suitable replacement. The card is giving us a great late game discard outlet which ties nicely with our commander, so replacing her with a self discard enchantment or spell is a good choice. Same goes for Sheoldred, the Whispering One, she is really great recursion so again, replace her with a recursion enchantment, artifact, spell or otherwise!
Finally the more expensive spells are Kolaghan's Command and Insurrection. Replace command with a card that gives you one of its four abilities depending on your play style, e.g more burn, recursion, hand hate or artifact hate. Then replace Insurrection with something like Besmirch that does the same effect just on one creature. I prefer besmirch over Act of Treason in this situation purely because EDH is the 'fun' format and its a bit more interesting to play with and for your fellow players to play against!
I hope some of this has helped, if needs be I can still throw together a cheaper alternative when I have the time. Going from what ive suggested here you should be able to shave off around $100.
