Vraska, Scheming Gorgon Discussion

I'd run Liliana, Death's Majesty here; the reanimation effect is really surprisingly helpful. I'm very very surprised to not see Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip in here as well. Both are significantly stronger, in my opinion, than Liliana, the Necromancer and possibly Vraska, Scheming Gorgon .
You could run Throne of Geth to get extra proliferate triggers. I'd also highly recommend Imp's Mischief , to avoid targeted removal being thrown at your Walkers. Given that you're proliferating frequently, have you considered Everflowing Chalice or Astral Cornucopia ? Or Illusionist's Bracers , for that matter ;)
I know my list doesn't have much in common with yours - we're doing very different strategies - but there may be some general Yawgmoth synergies you missed if you want to take a look :)

I have looked at this deck often over the past week or two and have considered building something similar. If I copy your deck and try to modify it, I somehow always end up adding in Vraska, Scheming Gorgon , Immolation Shaman and Bladebrand and end up moving away from creature sacrifice. I then end up with something that looks rather different but a lot more janky. To make it more resilient, I end up replacing high cmc creatures with deathtouch weenies and really battle to get a balanced approach. The more that I look at the deck, the more I see problems against other aggro decks or decks with lots of creature removal.

ZendikariWol thanks for the suggestions, the more feedback the better.
There is a decent amount of removal in my meta and one particular person likes to play mil, however I don't plan on needing to recur things for the most part and only use it as a panic button which is why all of my recursion is either continuously effective, pulls the entire graveyard, or targets several cards at once.
Rage Forger was specifically included to get around the "attack one player" restriction since it targets any player, allowing me to spread the damage around.
Solidarity of Heroes Doubles as a combat trick, but even if I only use it on a single creature, lets say one that has 4 counters on it, then I get 4 counters for 2 mana which I find decent enough.
I understand the Lifeblood Hydra has a bad mana curve and have avoided running it up until now, but with so many ways to produce and move counters it will continue to grow even after being played.
Vraska is mainly run for her ultimate, I know that is generally frowned upon but she doesn't require you sac something, it is a may ability. If she happens to be put down with a doubling season it will only take her 2 turns to ulti, and if not then it gives the less aggressive decks a reason to attack me and as a result, I am able to attack them. I considered using Vraska, Scheming Gorgon instead but she had a higher CMC and the ulti only lasted for a turn.
Balefire I considered mostly as a repeatable removal, a 7/7 with flying and menace is hard to block, especially multiple times in a row.
The rest I'll take a look at removing.

Yes, it dodges the commander tax and not only that you can cast it from the grave when Muldrotha is in play avoiding to pay the full cost of the creature, while casting a cheaper creature option as well :P
Personally I feel Vraska, Relic Seeker or Vraska, Scheming Gorgon is a bit too slow and for their abilities they don't do much for the cost. Wand of Vertebrae could also be switched out for Codex Shredder as you can target opponents library as well. Gleaming Barrier can be cut as well to make room for more spells.
Hope that helps!

Hello, Dickbutt McGee here.
This is all fine and good, but you have nothing to prevent other people from fucking you over. You'll need a bit of removal in case someone plays something that essentially reads "Michaela's deck doesn't work anymore."
^^^These are all solid ways to remove bullshit on other people's field that may be fucking you over.
Some cards that allow you to do graveyard bullshit:
Jarad's Orders: Search for something big and scary to put in the graveyard for you to later cheat onto the field, and search for something that is good utility like Solemn Simulacrum to put in your hand.
Grisly Salvage is also a great way to be filling your graveyard with bullshit to later cheat onto the field.
Liliana, Death's Majesty is great for both filling your graveyard with bullshit to cheat, and then she also helps you cheat it onto the field
Golgari Charm is just a solid card all around. It might not make the cut but it's good.
