Void Winnower Discussion
3 weeks ago
I've been looking at that card for the last 5 days vs. what it shuts down in my deck. I'm at the point now of just convincing myself it's worth it which I know it is. What it would shut down within my playgroup is.....beautiful.
The downside is the cards of mine it shuts off and what cards I could replace those with.
I wonder if adding Void Winnower is worth it if I go that route.

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:
- Gilded Lotus -> Fanatical Firebrand
- Sword of the Animist -> Swiftfoot Boots
- Mana Crypt -> Thermo-Alchemist
- Neheb, the Eternal -> Pilgrim's Eye
- Abyssal Persecutor -> Coldsteel Heart
- Dire Fleet Ravager -> Rune-Scarred Demon
- Fiery Confluence -> Painful Truths
- Olivia Voldaren -> Goblin Fireslinger
- Damnation -> Damnable Pact
- Steel Hellkite -> It That Betrays
- Bojuka Bog -> Smoldering Marsh
- Oppression -> Artisan of Kozilek
- Rakdos, the Showstopper -> Theater of Horrors
- Sol Ring -> Lobber Crew
- Flame Rift -> Gamble
- Rakdos Charm -> Lotus Petal
- Duplicant -> Walking Ballista
- Scourge of the Throne -> Void Winnower
- Bloodgift Demon -> Mask of Memory
- Kokusho, the Evening Star -> Painful Lesson
- Oblivion Stone -> Necropotence
- Risk Factor -> Dark Ritual
- Whip of Erebos -> Plague Spitter
- Heartless Hidetsugu -> Arguel's Blood Fast Flip
Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:
- direct damage is now at lower cmc
- -1 Ramp
- +1 protection/haste
- +2 tutor
- +5 draw
- +1 anti-control
- -4 Creature removal
- -2 graveyard hate
- -1 discard
- -1 extra attack
- -1 lifegain/recursion
- +1 removal
So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.
And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!

One thing I have learned about Eldrazi EDH decks is that mana ramp is IMPORTANT. I think that having more mana generators would be very helpful like Sol Ring , Thran Dynamo , and Gilded Lotus . I stopped running Coat of Arms in my decks because my play group loves tribal decks. I would go with a card like Eldrazi Monument because it makes your big boys bigger, and gives them indestructible and flying. If you find some scion generators, its easy to keep out as well. I would put in the Void Winnower because of the control you can maintain. Lastly, I would include some tribal land suggestions for you. Path of Ancestry , Eldrazi Temple , Unclaimed Territory .

If you mean the Devoid mechanic then no, but Eldrazi like Void Winnower then yes that would be fine.

There are some cards which I find confusing in your deck. Purphoros, God of the Forge is usually reserved for token decks or other "Go-wide" stategies whereas you are a "go-big" strategy. I also dont know how good Stalking Vengeance is. You are not a sacrifice based deck so this is just a lot of mana for some incremental damage. Then there's Sun Titan . It just doesnt seem like you have a lot of targets for him to bring back. Perhaps a fetchland or a mana dork that got killed early but not much else. Doesn't seem worth it. Then there's some other cards. I prefer Terastodon over Woodfall Primus . And why Sylvan Scrying and no Kodama's Reach ? I'd also consider adding just one more haste enabler. You have multiple creatures that want to be attacking right away like Etali, Primal Storm , Ilharg, the Raze-Boar , Balefire Dragon plus all the eldrazis. May I recommend Rhythm of the Wild ? Seems really solid in your deck.
Hope these help.

So this is a link to my paper Karador deck: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/that-was-karadorable-copy-1/?cb=1554224847
I think it has a lot of the things that you are trying to do, minus some synergies. My deck tries to grind more value from the creatures and eventually win through a fantastic win with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord sacrificing Lord of Extinction after fueling the graveyard with Hermit Druid (the deck plays lots of basics, so it isn't as bad as it looks to the opponents) and Underrealm Lich .
Some general suggestions for your deck:
Cut the cluestones and add the signets in their place. The difference between ramping on 3 to 5 is less important than from 2 to 4.
Cards that I think should be in every Karador deck:
Pattern of Rebirth This was reprinted in UMA and is a couple dollars. If you can kill your stuff, it fetches anything at instant speed.
Birthing Pod Pod is so much value and it makes you consider your creature curve. It helps lower it a bit to give your more diverse choices on the lower end. Pod also just so happens to kill your commander (who is usually cast for 3 mana) to fetch a Void Winnower to make opponents sad.
Eldritch Evolution I am unsure if I saw this card in the deck, but this card is a baby pod that can get ANY card with x+2 mana of the card you sacrificed. You can turn a 5 drop into a better 4, or even a 7. Whatever is needed. Amazing value.

So first iteration of my yenett deck was put to the test. 3 games, 3 wins. Worth mentioning i'm playing only in paper and that our LGS is small and deck are rather casual (i believe strongest decks are like 6/10 in term of power). We tend to play long games. My build runs 38 lands (21 basics, 1 fetch), and 10 even cards. Cannot provide decklist yet. My build isn't very focused on single target removal. Thou i need to add some removal for enchantments/artifacts. No Future Sight, Sensei, Soothsaying. Rise of the Dark Realms, Anguished Unmaking i have in other decks.
Even cards are : Strionic Resonator (damn this one is strong), Swiftfoot Boots , some 2cmc mana rocks, Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Smothering Tithe (Can this get ban already?), Overwhelming Denial .
Since this is "casual", only wheel effect im running along this Smothering Tithe is Dark Deal .
Liliana Vess performed really well. I don't have Animatou. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is probably fine addition to the deck. Dream Cache is probably better than Frantic Search? Living Death is too risky in my opinion.
Ethersworn Adjudicator was really good in my games.
Examples of odd cards im running: Herald of Leshrac , Artisan of Kozilek , Brilliant Ultimatum , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Blatant Thievery , Void Winnower , Inkwell Leviathan , Mind's Dilation , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Platinum Angel , Angelic Arbiter
If You want to improve Yenett and make deck real nasty , extra turn spells are probably way to go (Nexus of Fate might be really strong). Old Ulamog and New Emrakul are also Odd cards. Magister Sphinx , Enigma Sphinx , Mother of Runes , Iona, Approach of the Second Sun can also be very good.
Hope this helps a little and i'll see another Yenett video on the channel :D
