Yawgmoth's Bargain Discussion
2 months ago
Initial thoughts: Your curve is very 3 mana heavy, this is good and bad, means you can flood early, but leads to some dead draws late, assuming good draws, this will be fine.
For the amount of life you gain, Rhox Faithmender may be good in this deck. Big emphasis on may though.
For the amount of recursion you have, you need more sacrifice outlets. Diamond Valley Miren, the Moaning Well Phyrexian Tower Innocent Blood Vampiric Rites maybe even Carnage Altar Diabolic IntentDisciple of Griselbrand Hidden Stockpile Skirsdag Flayer Ashnod's Altar Attrition Bontu the Glorified
Oh, you sorta require Grave Pact I know it has a HUGE black requirement, but it's very much required in this sort of deck.
Some cards I'd consider cutting:
Arashin Cleric not good enough.
Greed you already have Erebos, God of the Dead you may as well replace with something better like Yawgmoth's Bargain Arguel's Blood Fast Flip that being said, you need more card draw. So maybe grab Necropotence or some of the other draw cards I've recommended here.
Some misc cards/tings (boom) you may want to consider:
Enchantment tribal? Constellation is a fun mechanic.

bradtheimpaler13: I think he’s going to be a mainstay in the deck. Haven’t gotten to play him much, but when I do, he’s REALLY good.
So, with the new updates to MTGO 1v1, fast mana and the good tutors are back, so not only do I get to play Gonti at full power, but also WITH Recurring Nightmare and possibly Yawgmoth's Bargain. I’m pretty excited!

Some more spoilers:
For each player, choose friend or foe. Each friend returns a creature card from their graveyard to their hand. Each foe sacrifices a creature.
This card is funny, but I don't think it's all that playable:
You're more limited by there not being any really obscene planeswalkers (vs. Academy Rector which grabs Omniscience or Yawgmoth's Bargain). About the most broken thing you can get is Garruk, Apex Predator or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.
This is also interesting:
It's a solid EDH card because players that are behind will help you cast it. It's not completely unplayable in 2HG, either, since you and your teammate can each play 3 mana to help cast it, meaning you can cast it early on. It's especially powerful if your team was able to dump most of the cards out of their hands first and letting the other team only draw 3 or 4 cards.
It also feels like there's better reprints than Iconic Masters lol:

SteelSentry, both Necropotence and Yawgmoth's Bargain work at a rate of 1 life per card, but my card would require a payment of 4 life for a single card, which forces a player to be much more strategic and conservative with how they use it.

I think the design strength of Greed is that it costs the mana as well as the life. I have been in a situation in an EDH game with a Grim Haruspex on the field where, due to various taxation effects from 2 black-based stax decks at the table, sacrificing a creature cost me 6 life, and I still did it, because I was in a spot where I needed an answer. The power of Necropotence or Yawgmoth's Bargain aren't that they're 1 life for 1 card (although the rate is part of it), but the fact that it's card draw with no mana investment. With a card like this, it allows you to hold up as much mana as you want to cast out everything you draw, whereas with Greed you're not only slowly killing yourself, but there is a resource cap where the more cards you draw, the less of them you can actually play that turn.

Yeah, it's fine. The whole "paying life to draw cards is broken" concept doesn't apply here because the amount of life you have to pay makes the card a lot worse than Necropotence or Yawgmoth's Bargain. Makes it a lot closer to the card you wanted; a combination of Greed and Book of Rass.

So from an EDH perspective: Not costing mana to draw seems too powerful. There's a reason why Necropotence is one of the most powerful cards in the format and Yawgmoth's Bargain is banned. So you've eliminated the mana requirement and kept the draw step haha!
Still, fun card that I'd totally put in my Neheb, the Eternal deck.
