Yahenni, Undying Partisan Discussion
11 hours ago
Other recommendations I have (I know, I should seriously stop, haha) are:
- Timepiece lets you get more self mill, but can respond to Bojuka Bog-effects, whereas Elixir is really only used in response to GY hate
- Might be good, as it can fetch up and immediately put out Mike & Trike
- Paired with Life from the Loam there are no drawbacks
- Could be good, if you have money to throw around (mainly referring to you, Demonic Tutor and Yawgmoth's Will...)
- Both provide levels of stax effects that could be incredibly useful, plus Smokestack, itself, is somewhat of a sac outlet that could help to add experience counters if needed
Board wipe after playing him, sac one of your creatures, he survives then potentially takes out one player in one swing
Additionally, he's just good and can be used as a sac outlet too
+1 for the name, description, and song. And again, I am terribly sorry for all of this and I will leave you alone now, haha.

Thank you both for the great advice concerning my tribal vampire deck. Based on both of your recommendations I made the following changes:I removed all non-vampire creatures and planeswalkers including Flamerush Rider, Combat Celebrant, Dukhara Scavenger, Chandra, Pyrogenius, Liliana, Death Wielder, Akroma, Angel of Fury, and Ammit Eternal. I did keep Ob Nixilis Reignited because of his first ability to draw cards and his third ability to deter opponents from drawing cards. I added Diabolic Tutor, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Pawn of Ulamog, Bloodrite Invoker, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodmad Vampire, Bold Impaler, Voldaren Duelist, Call the Bloodline, Dark Impostor, and Diabolic Tutor as I had them already in my collection. I also added Asylum Visitor to help with the card drawing aspect. The other recommended cards are great and I will begin adding many of them to my collection / deck as soon as I can. Again, thank you both for taking the time and making the recommendations. They were super helpful.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan, you already have a couple of board wipes and single creature kills, along with Yahenni's Expertise. Might be a good idea to remove a couple of the cards that rely too much on energy counters like Aether Hub and Harnessed Lightning. Or make cards that produce more energy counters like Die Young that will end up making those cards more effective.

I like seeing good home-brews SHI0RA. I have three questions before I attempt to evaluate changes to your build.
1) What is your meta? (most common decks/cards where you play)
2) Which cards do you "always want to cast"? Situational cards are often traps that eat up slots and weaken a strategy.
3) Have you evaluated each card by where it fits on your curve? Turn 1 cast -specific card-, turn 2 cast -specific card-, turn 3... and so on. Your "lines of play" will often dictate what changes need to be made.
For example, the main weakness I see for this build is turn 2. You've got Key to the City and Invigorated Rampage, which are great support cards. What do you want to do on turn 2 if you don't have any creatures? You can cast a Fatal Push, Harsh Scrutiny, or Bloodlust Inciter. In the right meta those plays will suffice, but having a cmc 2 that you always want to play is going to allow you to get ahead. Casting your key may set up future plays, but you might have a stacked hand that you don't want to discard from.
In regards to Yahenni, Undying Partisan, she is a beast in the right build. Your deck is a bit overloaded at cmc 3 though, so perhaps she is not needed. If you were to focus on her abilities it would detract from the rest of your synergies. She can buddy up to The Scorpion God and Ammit Eternal, but she wants to hit the battlefield turn 3 which clashes with your line of play. Would you wait a turn to cast Ammit in favor of slinging a Yahenni? If you need to cast Bontu's Last Reckoning which creature would you sacrifice to Yahenni's second ability?
There are a lot of questions to ask when deciding whether or not to introduce a card into a build. The most telling experience will come from playtesting the deck, hands on experience is the best teacher!
I hope my senseless ramblings have helped thus far. I will check back later and help you tinker with this build. Your responses to my questions will help me to tailor my future suggestions.

Thanks a lot DubiousDanish! I appreciate your interest :). Also, I like Wildfire Eternal quite a lot actually. But i didn't think the instants and sorceries spells i had made quite the impact it needed to justify him a spot over anything else. If anything, removing 2 Unlicensed Disintegration to add 2 Wildfire Eternal may be interesting. What do you think?
and also, what about Yahenni, Undying Partisan? does he deserve a maybeboard?

Hey man, like what you got going here. I have a few things to suggest.

So the sideboard should primarily be used to hate on other matchups in your colours, Lost Legacy, Dusk / Dawn, Solemnity, and Crook of Condemnation (or something of the like) are great sideboard cards especially if you don't know your local meta. Lost Legacy beats New Perspectives and Aetherflux Reservoir combo decks. Dusk / Dawn is just a great sweeper to have, Solemnity beats energy, and Crook of Condemnation beats delirium. You may also want Dissenter's Deliverance to have some artifact hate, Cast Out or Grasp of Darkness in the side for some additional removal, and if budget isn't a concern Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Collective Brutality. If you still have flex slots in the side or main Yahenni, Undying Partisan can enable an instant win with Zulaport Cutthroat out.
In terms of numbers of copies I would do something like this for the side:
3x Lost Legacy
2x Dusk / Dawn
2x Cast Out

Ballzanya I see where you're coming from, but it's done well in testing. The first strike deals with their early game creatures and the servos boost the consistency of having an artifact on board. Hope of Ghirapur Isn't nearly aggressive enough, Bloodrage Brawler is aggressive but we don't really want to be pitching our resources here except for a flooded hand, Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Glorybringer are great cards but we're looking to keep the curve real low to just flood the board while using our extensive removal suite to deal with threats.
