Yarok, the Desecrated Discussion

1empyrean on Progenitors Gateway (Testing Golos)

2 weeks ago

My brother has a gates golos deck and it is really quite good. Don't overlook Yarok, the Desecrated and Panharmonicon. Muldrotha, the Gravetide is also very strong here, even if its only being used to recast golos or a few key cards.

Yeah, feel that, man. I'm saving to get some new commanders to build around. I'm tired of building Yarok, the Desecrated, Esper control, and Thraximundar. And for basics, have you considered removing the mana symbol and edges from a Zendikar/Amonkhet land with a Sharpie?

Phyrexian Metamorph: ETB creature to copy a Nyxbloom Ancient, Gilded Lotus, Sol Ring, Savannah Lions. Whatever your heart desires.

Solemn Simulacrum: 5 basics in the deck. Finds them.

Agent of Treachery: Usually targets the most expensive cards on the table. Masterpiece Mana Crypt or a Sheoldred. Taking that Mana Crypt.

Bloom Tender: Mana dork.

Charming Prince: ETB bounce creature. Also sets up the top of the deck for a Golos activation.

Deadeye Navigator: Soulbonds with most ETB creatures listed here. Favorite, Resolute Archangel.

Eternal Witness: Returns fetch lands, removal, Aminatou's Augury to hand.

Faeburrow Elder: Mana dork.

Laboratory Maniac: One somewhat win con. Self-mill.

Progenitor Mimic: Imagine having a few copies of Nyxbloom or Terror of the Peaks.

Reclamation Sage: Destroys those pesky signets.

Resolute Archangel: See Deadeye.

Rune-Scarred Demon: Searches for things you need. Sensei or Soothsaying comes in handy.

Seedborn Muse: Activate Golos on everyone's turn.

Soulherder: EOT bounce.

Terror of the Peaks: Creatures entering and leaving the battlefield all the time. Deals damage.

Wayward Swordtooth: Extra land dork.

Nyxbloom Ancient: Mana dork with trample.

Ramos, Dragon Engine: Golos activation adds a few counters to this.

Emiel the Blessed: If you want to have fun with your opponents. Golos out in play. Have enough mana to activate Golos twice. But, instead, you play Emiel. Pay three to activate Emiel 4 or 5 or 6 times to flicker Golos in and out. Find a bunch of lands. Amulet of Vigor out. Those lands come in untapped. Then you tap them for things.

Keruga, the Macrosage: Draws a bunch of cards.

Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient: If 1 activation from Golos isn't enough. Double it.

Maelstrom Wanderer: More than 90 percent of the deck is CMC 7 or less. Some free spells when this ETB's with Golos activation. Or you can just cast it normally. Whatever you want.

Yarok, the Desecrated: Double triggered abilities. Zacama entering is a wild ride.

Zacama, Primal Calamity: Untaps lands. Destroys artifacts/enchantments. Kills opponents.

Zirda, the Dawnwaker: Why pay 7 to activate Golos. Pay 5.

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling: EOT bounce.

Greater Good: Draw engine.

Guardian Project: Another little draw engine. Awesome with ETB triggers.

Mirari's Wake: Mana doubler.

Mystic Remora: Draw.

Omniscience: Let's start a new game.

Rhystic Study: Draw.

Smothering Tithe: Best feeling ever is asking: "paying for smothering tithe".

Soothsaying: Fixes the top of your deck.

Aetherflux Reservoir: Unnecessary in the deck but always fun to take someone out early.

Amulet of Vigor: Untapps tapped lands when they enter with a Golos trigger.

Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Izzet Signet, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Chromatic Orrery: Mana Rocks.

Conjurer's Closet: EOT bounce.

Sensei's Divining Top: Fixes top of the deck.

Only have removal in the deck. Removed all counter spells.

Ephemerate and Eerie Interlude: Bounces creatures in and out.

Aminatou's Augury: Play a bunch of free cards.

Demonic Tutor: Find a card.

Genesis Ultimatum: Play permanents, put the rest in your hand.

In Garruk's Wake: Destroy all creatures and PW you don't control.

Time Stretch: Gives your friends and even longer time in wondering why they let you play with them.

Aggro definitely. You need Sisay for ETB. But if you choose to go that route, add Yarok, the Desecrated.

ZendikariWol on Nahiri's Presence in Zendikar

1 month ago

Drawing on your poignant quote, Mj, I think this is a good opportunity to give Nahiri her redemption arc. My headcanon is as follows:

Nahiri, back on Zendikar, turns her attention immediately to Yarok, the Desecrated. She addresses it as an unnatural threat, but she goes after it because it's a symbol of her failure. There are other unnatural and potentially dangerous forces on Zendikar; the reason she goes after Yarok is personal. So from here we have two different options, but they lead to the same conclusion:

A) Nahiri strikes Yarok down, only to realize that it, though damaged, was a part of Zendikar too, and she had harmed her home. Having realized the damage her selfishness can cause, Nahiri is left with some thinking to do...

B) Nahiri tracks Yarok and prepares an attack on it, only to realize that it, though damaged, is a part of Zendikar too. She sets down her blades and departs, conflicted, confused, and deeply regretful.

Yarok, the Desecrated does double the landfall trigger though, if you have a way to spend life in between the two triggers.

So I came across a card that I think would work with Yarok but I’m still unsure.

Yarok, the Desecrated


Eternity Vessel

It’s the condition with the life total I’m not sure about. When Eternity Vessel ETB would it get double the counters?

Morophon, the Boundless is a must have in any pentacolor tribal deck. Reduces the Color cost of each elemental by 1 of each colored mana type in it's cost. It would makes cards like Flamekin Harbinger and Unsettled Mariner free to play. Smokebraider would help alleviate your land issues as well haha. Animar, Soul of Elements would further reduce mana costs and is just good in general haha. Yarok, the Desecrated is good, but only if you have more ETB effects.
