Yawgmoth's Bargain Discussion

Lilbrudder on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

SaberTech: I too feel some grief over the shrinking of the viable card pool/generals, but mine is tempered by the freedom partners have provided in regards to how one chooses to play. Strategies such as midrange, control, reanimator, and various hybrid strategies are much more viable than they once were. So on the whole I find the changes to be a +. Moreover, with PlayEDH becoming a thing, the budget restrictions for playing cEDH has evaporated completely as proxies are allowed and you can play people halfway across the world in your basement.

I will never advocate to ban cards, in fact I wish cards like Tinker, Gifts Ungiven, and Yawgmoth's Bargain were legal. Broken ass cards is what makes the format fun imo. If you despise running staples, there is a range of deck power levels that aren't cEDH that offer a person a taste of the big dance. I agree that you dont just start with cEDH, the learning curve is far too high even if you netdeck which is why popular decks often get mixed reviews as inexperienced pilots play badly.

Fortunately, PlayEDH has various power levels it accomodates and there are ways to cater your deck power to the situation while still following cEDH principles. For instance, if I am playing with friends back home I play comboless value sharuum beatdown strategy. I still run a tight curve and good cards alongside my Withengar shenanighans. I am also in the process of assembling the cards for a high power inalla wizard deck. Is mecurial chemister cEDH worthy? Hell no, but that wont stop it from stomping asses in any environment other than cEDH. There is no shame in playing mid power or high power decks. You can play more generals and play jankier ("fun") strategies. The key to this format, is and always will be, playgroup selection. You don't need an imp seal to play high quality edh and a well construxted edh deck is totally fine with or without the staples.

Darksteel Plate could be a good back for indestructable up oh and Yawgmoth's Bargain is banned. Hatred could be a good sneak attack in your deck

@fluffybunnypants: lol no worries. I was just freaking out because I knew they unrestricted Yawgmoth's Bargain and was thinking "Dafuq? Storm is going to be INSANE in Vintage!"

But ya definitely reserved list. I'm just wondering what caused such a large jump from the mid $20 range to $50+ overnight. RL cards have been hit by buyouts one by one over the past year since Eternal Masters established the RL wasn't going away.

@fluffybunnypants: Yawgmoth's Bargain was unrestricted, unless I missed something? Yawgmoth's Will is a 1-sided Timetwister and the format would probably cease to exist if it got unrestricted.

Sorry for double posting, but I forgot to mention that another alternative for Yawgmoth's Bargain is Necropotence.

First off, Yawgmoth's Bargain is not EDH legal. For a substitute, you can put in Phyrexian Arena.

Fist of Suns is great mainly because it slashes Progenitus's cost in half. Dream Halls is a nice way to cast him for free, although you should beware of grouphug effects.

Door to Nothingness, Legacy Weapon, Maelstrom Archangel, Cascading Cataracts, Conflux, Maelstrom Nexus, Ramos, Dragon Engine, and maybe, just maybe, Child of Alara are all really nice in a rainbow EDH deck.

Hi, At first i think you don't need that many lands, about 35-38 should be enough. Also the strategy (Discard right?) isn't well constructed. I would recommend also discarding cards from your Hand and creating some Synergies with your graveyard (Reanimator stuff etc...). Here are some Cards which are relativ cheap, but could work quite well.

Discard stuff:Mind Shatter, The Rack, Shrieking Affliction, Rotting Rats

Reanimation and Graveyard stuff:Gravecrawler, Exhume, Buried Alive, Victimize, Bojuka Bog!!!, Zombify, Nighthowler

Maybe some Ramp:Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone, Sol Ring

Other good Stuff:Yawgmoth's Bargain, Mutilate, Languish, Bloodgift Demon, Profane Command, Swiftfoot Boots, Skullclamp, Avatar of Woe, Desecration Demon, Harvester of Souls, Phyrexian Reclamation, Nekrataal, Shriekmaw, Polluted Mire

I think that most of the cards are affordable and could improve this deck a lot. Adding more removal is also important. There are plenty of more cards, but this list should be enough for some new toughts :)
