Yawgmoth's Bargain Discussion
2 days ago
Fellin22, Hermit Druid maybe be strong, but being such a fragile card, needing a turn of no removal to get around or another piece in a haste enabler and I doubt it is truly a menace to the format. Nearly 0 cEDH lists I have seen in Maximum power run it anymore, as doing so for a major wincon does require a lack of basics and some build around, and that just gets crushed by Back to Basics or Blood Moon , while making painful manabases.
Nerdytimesorwhatever, I agree, I believe in many ways that Flash is an unhealthy card for the format, that or ban its partner Protean Hulk again. Perhaps both. I feel like Channel isn't banned for that reason though, it is banned more along the lines of Yawgmoth's Bargain , where due to the 40 life, it is even more unfair than normal. Not sure, maybe a bit of both. It is also a major reason due to why in the cEDH scene Thrasios/Tymna is by far the best deck.

"When black gets better draw"
Did I just read this string of words?
Why would you make me read this string of words? Yawgmoth's Bargain is banned. As is Griselbrand . You're not going to get better draw power in black than Necropotence without it being banned. I'm not sure why you'd need it though, Necro is quite possibly the best draw card ever printed.

Love the deck! Another good card to abuse Vilis could be Blood Celebrant . With two initial (one to cast, one to activate - that is then given back to you to go on with the cycle) it basically becomes a Yawgmoth's Bargain and it's the cheapest among the few that let you pay only 1 life at a time, giving you full control over your draws.

Now that WotC has finally printed a card of Yawgmoth himself, I feel that I can do the same; their card depicts him at the beginning of his career, when he was still a human, so my card depicts him later in his life.
Yawgmoth, Master Eugenicist Show
Legendary Creature – Human Cleric
Protection from red, from blue, and from green.
, sacrifice a creature: target player loses life equal to the scarified creature’s power and you gain life equal to its toughness.
, pay X life: until end of turn, creatures that your opponents control get -X/-X and creatures that you control get +X/+X.
, pay 2 life: draw a card.
, sacrifice a creature: destroy target artifact or enchantment.
This card depicts Yawgmoth when he was still human, but when he was in a position of power and authority in the Thran empire. At that time, he was the chief physician of the empire, tasked with curing the citizens of a virulent disease that was afflicting the, but, in actuality, he was the one who was infecting them, hoping to cull the weak from the population and breed super-soldiers to conquer Dominaria.
As for the card itself, I felt that he, as with Urza, acquired more colors as time passed, so I made him black and white, since, out of all the two-color combinations in this game, that combination is the most associated with pride, arrogance, and nobility (although black/white and black/blue are close behind). As such, he has protection from the other three colors (a combination that has never been used, before), to represent how he is supremely confident in himself and that only a being who is similar to him (i.e., in the same colors as him) could harm him.
Each of his abilities represents his experiments, whether they are culling the weak or experimenting on subjects. The mono-black ability is a reference to both Greed and Yawgmoth's Bargain , but more expensive than either, since it would be too powerful otherwise. The mono-white ability is there simply because I wanted an equal distribution of colors in his abilities; also notice that two of his abilities involve paying life and two involve sacrificing a creature, another form of symmetry.
What does everyone else think of this card? Does having four activated abilities make him too powerful? If so, should I remove the latter two (as the first two are the essential abilities that I must keep)? Is his mana cost too low?

Yawgmoth's Opus. No. 8
Pay 1 life, : Put up to one target card from your graveyard on top of your library, scry 1, then draw a card.
Based off Yawgmoth's Bargain , but more fair and interesting.

I am very excited to test Yawgmoth, Thran Physician . Draw, sacrifice, discard, proliferate, kills dorks. It's a slam dunk in this deck.
Insta-win with Yawgmoth in play: Buried Alive for Mikaeus, Delver, and Blood Artist.
I love him.
