Yawgmoth's Will


Until end of turn, you may play cards from your graveyard.

If a card would be put into your graveyard from anywhere this turn, exile that card instead.

Yawgmoth's Will Discussion

jimmyfoas the choose to play no recursion is due at my meta graveyards hate. At the beginning me and my friends have abused about playing from the graveyard so the hate has grown and sometimes my recursion inside this deck have becomed a dead draw. In the previous list i ran Sun Titan but i cut it off because he has never been so decisive in the matches. Now, in the last month, it seems that graveyards hate has lowered a tiny bit, I will think about Yawgmoth's Will , it s too good to stay out and it is a second chance for trigger Ad Nauseam combo if the first chance go bad, the same is for Animate Dead , another card that i would add in the list. Another reason for the which i don t play recursion is that i play Rest in Peace . I play against a lot of archetype that pass by graveyards for combo or mechanic as Ghave, Guru of Spores , Scion of the Ur-Dragon or Kess, Dissident Mage , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Marchesa, the Black Rose so it frequently happen that i have tutor for RIP. With RIP in play i stop their engine but as you could imagine all my recursion are useless, this last one is probably the main reason for which I don t play recursion. I hope to have exhaustively respond to your question . Thanks again for comment.

Have you found that this deck operates well without a need for any recursion? I've been brewing a similar deck and I'm considering things like Past in Flames , Yawgmoth's Will and Sun Titan so I was curious about you reasoning behind not running any recursion. Along similar lines, have you ever considered Vedalken Orrery ? I've found that it lets me keep my mana up to be reactive and then cast what permanents I need on my opponent's endstep (It also helps justify cards like Yawgmoth's will)

Thanks for your advice, xaarvaxus!

Yeah, I feel like Demon's Horn will lose its usefulness quite soon. Same goes for Pristine Talisman . About Basilica Screecher -- true, it's not super helpful, especially since the generic mana in its cost makes it impossible to cast for "free".

The cards I feel like cutting in the near future (apart from the ones I mentioned above) are Harvester of Souls , and probably Lotus Bloom (still on the fence about it and the same goes for Chrome Mox ), and Vampiric Link since I don't have enough demons to make it reliably worth it (and by demons I mean big creatures that I can stick the link on and be happy with it). Obviously, Necropotence and Yawgmoth's Will are auto-includes. I just haven't ordered them yet. I'd love to be able to stick Sheoldred, Whispering One somewhere. but I'm getting pretty short on space.

Gate to Phyrexia is an expensive card, yeah, but there's no replacement for it in black and artifacts are obviously a big part of EDH. No generic mana in the cost is also a big plus. I'm just having trouble with staying within the 100 card limit :D

Oh, and I guess Exquisite Blood is another one of those must-have cards for K'rrik.

Big thanks for your input!

enpc, Yawgmoth's Will is far too expensive for me to purchase a copy of it for my decks (although I would consider Magus of the Will , if I could find a card to remove in its stead), and Mission Briefing relies on having a large amount of instants and sorceries in a deck, which only some of my decks have, so that card is too unrelaible for my decks.

DemonDragonJ: Elixir of Immortality isn't such an issue. It's more that there a a slew of cards (like Mission Briefing or Yawgmoth's Will ) which let you treat your graveyard like cards in your hand, which is where the power comes from. Elixir just shuffles your GY, but cards which let you target something specifically in your GY get more powerful the more options there are.

Cut Swamp to go to 38 lands, 39 is too much

Cut swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Upgrade and goes with coffers and non-swamps

Cut swamp for Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or any utility land like cradle, strip mine, etc...

Murderous Rider > Hero's Downfall

Hellfire is such an expensive card that hurts you, cut for something cheaper like Dead of Winter , Mutilate or Toxic Deluge .

How are you dealing with artifacts and enchantments? One Rest in Peace and you lose unless you make them proactively discard it which isn't always possible. Some suggestions of budget and nonbudget include....

Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Boompile , Ratchet Bomb , Perilous Vault , Blast Zone etc...

Ill-Gotten Gains seems like it can backfire a large portion of the time. What is the purpose of it, to put creatures in yards or general recursion? If you're looking for recursion of black cards, Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed can do the trick. General recursion can be down with Yawgmoth's Will . Artifact/Creature recursion can be done with Beacon of Unrest (not suggesting beacon, but just an idea to note).

DemonDragonJ: How long is a piece of string? It entirely depends on what your opponents are playing (are they running Kess or Meren type decks), do they run stuff like Past in Flames or Yawgmoth's Will , do they run cards like Mission Briefing or Reanimate -esque spells?

Most "decent" decks (that is ones that have at least somewhat of a competitive focus) will have some level of personal graveyard interation,.
