Yawgmoth, Thran Physician Discussion
3 days ago
So, there's stuff like Yarok, the Desecrated and Teysa Karlov, which double triggers, and Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, Astral Drift/Astral Slide, adds value, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Urza, Lord High Artificer, and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician all facilitate infinite combos. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, Kess, Dissident Mage, and Wrenn and Six all provide a way to increase the value of your resources.
These all would be considered "Abusing" their respective mechanics.

The only thing i find missing is more ramp :D you are missing a few key elves on turn 1 and 1 suggestion would be Yawgmoth, Thran Physician he is a bit slow but he can draw so many cards even without the infinite loop.Other than that i should be taking notes from you :D

Epicurus thanks for checking my deck man :D.
i really like Karador and i am trying always to improve him.
Beast Whisperer,Skullclamp,Audacious Thief,Oakhame Adversary,Mindblade Render,Yawgmoth, Thran Physician are all amazing draw engines. Sometimes i forget i have them and neglected to tell you to add them.
on that idea also add Guardian Project and Path of Discovery they are really amazing enchantments i had to cut them out because they costed 2 much. But i still like them.
Runic Armasaur believe it or not is the first to be swapped out when i find a replacement because he is too cirumstancial.
Finally i do love Syr Konrad, the Grim but my meta is too fast for that.I tried him and really like him but 5 mana is too much for the slot i wanted him for (protect my graveyard). I don't need his damage to end the game so i had to remove him.
Thanks for checkning my deck :D

You, sir. I admire your earnestness.
For getting more counters, I HIGHLY suggest Yawgmoth, Thran Physician. Golgari is an excellent color combination for getting a ton of cards in your hand and a ton of mana, so you could easily go from a couple of counters to 10 in a turn. Same logic for Planewide Celebration. 7 mana for 4 counters each isn't a bad deal. Lean into green ramp. You can definitely afford to fire off 1-for-1 2-mana green ramp spells, so long as you're drawing with Tymna.
You can amplify the effects of your infect and proliferate cards with Winding Constrictor and Corpsejack Menace. Hand of the Praetors and Phyrexian Swarmlord are infect lords, so they should probably see play. Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons means that all of your infect creatures explode into deathtouching snakes when they trade in combat.
Swamp Mosquito doesn't say infect, but it has non-keyworded Infect. Suq'Ata Assassin has non-keyworded Fear, but also gives poison counters with evasion. If you want to load up on the cheapest, most efficient bodies with infect, then it might be worth running Pit Scorpion, too.
The reason why I would go for a bigger spread of bodies is that it will ultimately be more efficient to load up on instant-speed mass pump spells, rather than having to draw and cast poorly-suited cards for Commander like Giant Growth. In priority order, I'd go Return of the Wildspeaker, Overrun, Pride of Conquerors, Make a Stand, Dark Triumph, Borrowed Grace, Zealous Persecution, Fortify, Sigil Blessing.

TK_Tyrant thanks so much for the comment and question. Very glad someone is able to enjoy the deck like myself. I'm still learning whats working and I would say the deck really wins of it's synergy so it kind of hard to pick but I have some favourites! First should mention with Athreos its very easy and possible that the super good combo cards and threats will be owned by your opponents so just slap a coin counter on whatever looks good. I think the main win conditions are from cards like Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Cruel Celebrant, and Corpse Knight. These cards are nice with the sacrifice synergy and spirit tokens. I always try to throw coin counters on these type of cards so they stick around. Some more single stand outs are Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Teysa, Orzhov Scion. Yawgmoth is a sac outlet letting you draw to find more synergy. He also is great for killing things. Teysa has been doing work everytime she's hit the board. She's great removal on a stick, lets me sac things for zulaport triggers and makes more tokens at the same time. Lastly one of my recent additions and favourites has to be Mirror Entity. Makes all the little tokens into big threats. Also makes them all spirits or humans if the need arises. This with Piper of the Swarm is amazing and hilarious and is portably my favourite combo so far. Thanks again for the comment and hope the deck keeps working out for you!!

Any opinions for best card-draw engines from all of the included cards?
