Yawgmoth's Will Discussion

freakingShane on Meren's Friends are Dead, Push Her to the Edge

Other recommendations I have (I know, I should seriously stop, haha) are:

Perpetual Timepiece and/or Elixir of Immortality

  • Timepiece lets you get more self mill, but can respond to Bojuka Bog-effects, whereas Elixir is really only used in response to GY hate

Defense of the Heart

  • Might be good, as it can fetch up and immediately put out Mike & Trike

Realms Uncharted

Animate Dead, Yawgmoth's Will, and Demonic Tutor

Grave Pact and/or Smokestack

  • Both provide levels of stax effects that could be incredibly useful, plus Smokestack, itself, is somewhat of a sac outlet that could help to add experience counters if needed

Yahenni, Undying Partisan

  • Board wipe after playing him, sac one of your creatures, he survives then potentially takes out one player in one swing

  • Additionally, he's just good and can be used as a sac outlet too

+1 for the name, description, and song. And again, I am terribly sorry for all of this and I will leave you alone now, haha.

Saucealicious on Nicol Bolas, the chaotic maelstrom dragon

1 week ago

Thanks for checking out my deck Harness the Maelstrom~ Yidris EDH! I hope you found the description useful and that you saw some cards that you might want to use for yourself :)

In general, make sure you have enough draw to keep your Cascade chains and Paradox Engine chains going. I have a list of interesting cards for my own deck, there's a lot of different things in it and everything might not be that good but if you look through it I'm sure you'll find something you like! Here's the link: Maybe Cards for Yidris EDH

For specific suggestions, on the top of my head I would recommend Arcanis the Omnipotent since he is just bonkers with your Paradox Engine strategy and maybe Yawgmoth's Will (don't be fooled by the card text, it has been updated. It does not count as casting cards from your hand. You will not Cascade from them!) since it's a cheaper Past in Flames, but it loses Flashback.

DonaldFuck: While you're right that Torment of Hailfire would not be a good card specifically for Cascading, it is still a really good card in and of itself, especially in a deck like this that can generate a ridicolous amount of mana with Paradox Engine. If you hit it while Cascading you could just put it on the bottom of the deck if you don't want to have it in your graveyard. While that would be a wasted Cascade you have to keep in mind that Cascade in a Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder-deck is always a stapled-on bonus, you're rarely spending resources in order to get it! :D You're still casting a card normally, that card's effects are never lost even though the FREE Cascade might be a miss! :)

Sgtpopnfreash on Where did your library go?

Generally people who play DD go all in on that strategy and have Time Spiral, Yawgmoth's Will and Snapcaster Mage as the back ups if it gets countered or something.

As for your DD pile I will give you a much better one. Doomsday gets cast and you make your pile from top to bottom Gush, Frantic Search, Laboratory Maniac, Swan Song and Gitaxian Probe
This pile allows you to draw into Gush return 2 islands to your hand draw Laboratory Maniac and Frantic Search cast Frantic Search for 3 and untap 3 lands then you pitch the islands you returned to your hand and draw Gitaxian Probe and Swan Song then cast Lab Man with the untaped lands from Frantic Search with swan song as protection Then Gitaxian Probe for 2 life for the win.

The entire combo takes a draw trigger, 2 islands to bounce with Gush and to pitch to Frantic Search , 3 other lands, 4 mana and 2 life.
It seems complicated but it gets easier after a few tries.

DoctorMckay on infinate sacking

Imo Sinkhole can be cut and Demonic Tutor can be replaced.

About Sinkhole: You can argue that a Glacial Chasm or a Gaea's Cradle are good targets but, I think adding some powerful draw or recursivity engines might be more useful. Yawgmoth's Will/Magus of the Wheel, for example. (ALL HAIL YAWGMOTH) Let the opponents do what they want but you will do your stuff faster than theirs.

About Diabolic Tutor: Beseech the Queen is better. In an average game you won't activate Diabolic Tutor until turn 3 or 4. By then you have about 3-4 lands in play. Also, Beseech the Queen can be cast for the same cost of Diabolic Tutor, for or for white mana only. Flexibility is always a good thing. Also, you could run Grim Tutor, I mean, your are playing Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

I've just become aware of it, you are running Karmic Guide and Ashnod's Altar but not Reveillark?! I mean, those 3 create an infinite combo of mana. With Altar of Dementia instead of Ashnod's Altar you can mill everyone to 0. Karmic Guide and Reveillark enable pretty nasty combos and are a wincon, pls, run both.

Viscera Seer is a good pick too. It works really well with the combo.

PD: Question, what enchantment/artifact hate or spot removals are you running?

PD2: Have you considered running razaketh, the foulblooded ?

Archwizard, have you considered Grafdigger's Cage in place of Tormod's Crypt? I mean, Grafdigger's Cage not only inhibits reanimator strategies, but it also shuts down cheating creatures from libraries (i.e. Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Natural Order) and some storm lists that may rely on Yawgmoth's Will. Not to mention that it is still tutorable through all of your artifact tutors, including Trinket Mage. The only downside to the card would be the anti-synergy against your own Snapcaster Mage and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip when he is Jace, Telepath Unbound  Flip, which I don't believe is that much of a downside.

I agree with Imp's Mischief over Pyroblast. It will probably be overall more usefull in the long run. Reason I have been running both, due to the high number of blue players around my play area. But they are dying down a bit, so Imp's Mischief will probably be better now. Rakdos Charm is a meta call. I have some token players around, a lot of graveyard and the artifact destroy is handy from time to time, so it will stay for now. Yawgmoth's Will is not actually in the list, I just put in sideboard instead of maybe. xD

I will wait a bit on finding space for Faithless Looting and other draw cards. I want feel out more of the cards first!

Ty for the advice DiabolicEsper! :D

DiabolicEsper on The sting of value!

This is actually a pretty good list for TSG, just some things tho:
-I would replace either Pyroblast or Red Elemental Blast with Imp's Mischief, which in my experience it's better being able to basically counter other colour spells (eg swords, or path etc), unless your meta demands it.
-The other is card draw, both Faithless Looting and Cathartic Reunion are decent inclusion I would choose (especially since you some of the combo's you included involve filling up the graveyard, and also you have a decent amount of reanimation for the discard to be beneficial).
-Rakdos Charm is another card that seems like more of a meta-answer ( it could be nice if you included what your meta is like), which can really be replaced with Smelt or Tormod's Crypt.
-Your land count is alright considering your average CMC is 3-ish and a decent number of ramp.
-and Yawgmoth's Will? seems like a card that doesn't look right in here, it shuts off too many things/gameplans (u want creatures to enter the graveyard, not exile) it's more for a storm style or very explosive single-turn deck in case your wondering.
Either way, have fun with TSG, I'll give this list a shot with my casual pods.
