Yawgmoth's Will Discussion

Thanks for the comment MizzMizz. It's been a while since I've updated this deck online and honestly I probably hadn't sleeved a new card into it in over a year until this week.

Some old adjustments that I had not documented were that I cut Overseer of the Damned and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed for Archfiend of Despair and Yawgmoth's Will.

Both the Overseer and Mike almost always felt like crap draws, leading them to hangout in my hand. I'm really happy with their replacements, Archfiend can be a chore to get out some times but it never disappoints and Yawgs will is one of those cards that really needs no explanation.

That being said, I do watch for cards to fit in here as they are released. after doing some research after your comment i noticed that somehow I let Syr Konrad, the Grim get past me. I'ts a total fit for the deck, rewarding me for doing most of what I enjoy doing with this deck; filling the yard.

So I went ahead and added some of my other favorites in to complement it: Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Merciless Executioner. I'm still looking for the cut to put Buried Alive back in to capitalize on Syr Konrad even more. Buried alive may even replace Yahenni after testing, I'm skeptical at this point that it will carry it's weight.

Cuts that I made so far to fit in these new ones were: Indulgent Tormentor, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Dictate of Erebos. Each of these were alright but never really shined in the deck.

Anyways thanks! Let me know if you have any other questions, I would be happy to answer them!

Angel's Grace seem like a must play in this deck with the high amount of consultation players. Wrath of God/Damnation and maybe even Living Death could work too since you're running a high amount of hate bear. Yawgmoth's Will also look like another must have card. Smothering Tithe and Dark Deal are to be considerated if you're in a Opus Thief meta (you're also running the Uba Mask/Drannith Magistrate lock so even more reason to run them). Also, you're really low on lands.

I really like the deck and idea, hope you continue your tunning !

Hey, for cEDH I don't think sanguine-blood combo is good or efficient enough. I think you should convert this into a farm deck. The Archangel/feeder combo also doesn't accomplish much in a cEDH context. There really is no room for pet/cute combos in a cEDH context frankly speaking and it's all about efficiency. I would also recommend adding more protection like Veil of Summer to protect your combo. You're also missing Necropotence, Deathrite Shaman, Carpet of Flowers, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Deafening Silence which I think is crucial. Yawgmoth's Will/Children of Korlis is also great in your deck.

So as a food chain player, things i notice off the bat, due to consultation and singleton mana base, Utopia Sprawl is really bad, you only have like 4 forests in the entire deck, that card is gonna be a whiff a lot, and something like Wild Growth would likely be better, i know growth only produces green, but meh. The card Tale's End is fantastic and likely should find a home in the deck answers to other peoples sushi could be good. The blue and green needed to cast Kiora's Follower is not good and thing's like Blightsoil Druid or Naga Vitalist are much better 2 drop mana dork choices. to be fair, i would take this in a more thief direction than doomsday since you already running 2 wheels and Notion Thief and Narset, Parter of Veils. no Regrowth or Reap or Noxious Revival or Eternal Witness Yawgmoth's Will is a bad mistake. jmo.

UltimateRoxas40, wow i'm flattered that you took inspiration from my own deck. Thank you for that. I personally subscribe to The Progress Engine's school of thought when it comes to deck building - especially when it comes to my own Atraxa deck. So looking at your list you have a lot of different themes. The primary seem to be +1/+1 counters and infect. I think you could lean a little more into that - including cards like:

  • The Ozolith: Fresh from ikoria, this card guarantees that if a creature is removed from play you will always gain value from it if you manage to put a +1/+1 counter on it.

  • Corpsejack Menace: I have a promo copy of this little guy, but decided to build in a different direction. Regardless, Corpsejack can help your boardstate get out of control very easily with those counters.

  • Forgotten Ancient: Another fun little card that can dramatically increase the number of +1/+1 counters on your creatures.

Now what would you be cutting? Well some of the less efficient cards I see are:

  • Simic Ascendancy: This is a maybe cut from me as I've tried this card in my deck but I determined that it was just too mana intensive to use. The simic requirement for activation was just tough. Maybe this card has done better in your deck since +1/+1 counters are a primary theme.
  • Lux Cannon: This is a maybe cut from me as well. This is a pet card of mine in the deck. I love it's flavor and overall style. Yes, it can be a mean and very scary deterrent/distraction on the board but it depends entirely on how you feel about it. I know I could probably find a more efficient card in the slot - but I like it.
  • Reanimate: As cool as this card is, only being able to resurrect one creature isn't that great in the span of things. I swapped this out for a Yawgmoth's Will. Super expensive card, I know. But it's so insanely good.
  • Consecrated Sphinx: For such a high CMC creature the pay off isn't quite that great in the context of your deck. Normally, Sphinx would be used in something like a Nekusar deck that runs a good amount of wheel effects like Windfall or Time Spiral.

TacticM, oh and one more good thing - I can recur it with Yawgmoth's Will (it's in the deck). Yeah, I think Defense of the Heart is the better choice for my deck The Song of Phyresis (Seriously...check it out. Let me know what you think. Shameless plug over, I swear.)

MurderForBrunch on cEDH: King of the Ring

I think you play both honestly! I was taking another look at your deck, and there's other cards you could possibly cut for the Reclamation. For instance, I've seen you have Finale of Devastation which is a good card, really good, but I'm not sure you're making the best use out of it. That card stands out in a deck with 6+ mana dorks where no matter what, you'll have enough creatures to kill everyone twice with infinite mana. In you case, if you get to infinite mana Kenrith, the Returned King is a better mana outlet to win the game.

On the other hand, you have a lot of tutors, maybe you could cut Eldritch Evolution or Worldly Tutor (one of them, although not both). I get that they both find you Thassa's Oracle, but there's a lot of other tutors that can also get that.

In general, I think Yawgmoth's Will is a super duper bonkers card that lets you rebuy stuff that got countered or replay everything in a combo turn. And the good part of the Will is that is also good when you're not doing broken stuff, if you rebuy a Mana Crypt that got destroyed, a fetch and maybe a Ponder that's not game winning, but it's still pretty good!

In conclusion, I would try to evaluate cards in the moment they're super good, but also in the moments they're not as good, when you topdeck them without a ton of other stuff. In that regard, both the Will and the Reclamation are really good!

I see steel helkite as your only way to deal with artifacts/enchantments. You might want to consider some of the following.... Blast Zone, Karn liberated, OG Ugin, New Ugin, Lux cannon, ratchet bomb, meteor golem, etc...
