Yahenni, Undying Partisan Discussion
1 day ago
Thanks for the comment MizzMizz. It's been a while since I've updated this deck online and honestly I probably hadn't sleeved a new card into it in over a year until this week.
Both the Overseer and Mike almost always felt like crap draws, leading them to hangout in my hand. I'm really happy with their replacements, Archfiend can be a chore to get out some times but it never disappoints and Yawgs will is one of those cards that really needs no explanation.
That being said, I do watch for cards to fit in here as they are released. after doing some research after your comment i noticed that somehow I let Syr Konrad, the Grim get past me. I'ts a total fit for the deck, rewarding me for doing most of what I enjoy doing with this deck; filling the yard.
So I went ahead and added some of my other favorites in to complement it: Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Merciless Executioner. I'm still looking for the cut to put Buried Alive back in to capitalize on Syr Konrad even more. Buried alive may even replace Yahenni after testing, I'm skeptical at this point that it will carry it's weight.
Anyways thanks! Let me know if you have any other questions, I would be happy to answer them!

Drag to the Underworld is good in anything exclusively black. With the number of one drops you are playing, you might consider including Shadow Alley Denizen for more evasion. For good two drops, Kitesail Freebooter helps deal with opposition boardwipes that this deck can be susceptible to. Otherwise some card advantage may be needed. A couple Pain Seer, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, or Blood Scrivener may be good for that. You could also replace one of your various one drops for Foulmire Knight. They are all certainly better than Scrapheap Scrounger because that card doesn't play well with the other cards that recur themselves and it removes from your devotion count if you choose to play any cards with it like Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a great way to buff your whole team considering you go pretty wide. Murderous Rider is removal on a stick to add to the copies of Fatal Push. Also, you have no way to recur Deathless Knight, so maybe look at other undercosted beaters like Pitiless Horde, Rotting Regisaur, or Master of the Feast. If you want to stick to the haste theme though, Yahenni, Undying Partisan is excellent.

Nice suggestion valentin74, so I'll walk you through my thoughts:
The way I view Yahenni, Undying Partisan is as a sack outlet with the upsides of additional beatdown and being hard to remove, whereas Recruiter of the Guard would be a tutor, so it's a bit hard to compare directly.
But let's first check what the Recruiter could get: Combo pieces: Both Reassembling Skeleton or Nether Traitor and Pawn of Ulamog All drain effect creatures like Blood Artist Sack outlets Woe Strider and Carrion Feeder Card draw: Midnight Reaper, Grim Haruspex and Mentor of the Meek Stuff I can sack: Doomed Traveler and alike, and if our graveyard is full Hallowed Spiritkeeper.
So actually it seems like Recruiter is indeed a versatile tutor and a card that I should probably include. I am not sure what I am going to cut for it though. Probably either Yahenni or Woe Strider. This is a meta call on how many destroy all creature wipes you see, as Yahenni can survive those and get's more powerful in the process, giving a bit more beatdown. Strider has the upside of doing something more useful when sacking, coming with a token himself and the escape ability if we really need that sack outlet. For now I'll swap out Yahenni. Thank's for the suggestion!

That's a really solid deck, congratulations!
I especially like the inclusion of Psychatog. It seems highly synergistic with the deck's strategy.
A few considerations:
Haste is incredibly important. What's even more important is the fact that its enabler has as low of a CMC as possible. For this reason, although Yahenni, Undying Partisan could have some synergy with the deck if you are not including too many looting effects, I think you would be better off with a Nether Traitor or, even better, a Gingerbrute. Being 1 or 2 mana cheaper means you can transition from them to something else with ease. On top of that, they also provide evasion.
Nighthowler seems to me a little too situational and unreliable. Your graveyard shouldn't be too stocked with creatures, as it would be risky. As regards your opponents', it's too dependent on the matchup.
Good job and keep your list up to date!

Hey Squirrel_of_War, thank you for checking my list and making suggestions. The Lack of free sac outlets will be diminished in the Future. I’ve bought an Phyrexian Altar, Goblin Bombardment and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I dont want to abuse dockside like i dont want to win with Revel in Riches. I‘m a Bit affraid of playing without the Signets but lets See how it turns out. Sadly the Corona Virus stops our playgroup meeting this saturday :/
Hope you See all alright!

One of the most obvious combos is Vizier of Remedies + Murderous Redcap + any sac outlet. (You can have Cathars' Crusade or Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit instead of Vizier of Remedies for the combo) Unless disrupted, this combo deals infinite damage to any number of players/ creatures. How the combo works:
Step 1. Sacrifice Murderous Redcap
Step 2. Persist Triggers and Murderous Redcap is back
Step 3. Murderous Redcap trigger is put on the stack
Step 4. Vizier of Remedies triggers - resolve this one first
Step 5. Murderous Redcap deals damage
Rinse and repeat.
Note about this combo - if your sac outlet is Altar of Dementia you can mill one player while killing another one. Other sac maybe Ashnod's Altar, Blasting Station, Phyrexian Altar, Phyrexian Tower, Goblin Bombardment, Yahenni, Undying Partisan
