Yawgmoth's Will Discussion
21 hours ago
Hi Fiplo,yes, used to run Tendrils of Agony in it, too.It's good against counter meta, but in praxis, Aetherflux / Paradox Engine is faster to win with.And Comet Storm can help against too many obnoxious creature or be a win con, so it was more flexible as a backup.
Past in Flames was also in the Deck. 4 CMC is a bit high in Storm, and in playtesting, I always went for Yawgmoth's Will, to also get my Artifacts, they are enablers and WinCons.Dark Petition for Yawgmoth's Will for example, with counter backup and key stuff in GY: usually game winning.
So, in the end, I took both cards out, for two more counterspells.

Coward_Token, War Cadence and Brutal Hordechief are very different. I can't use Brutal Hordechief on other players' turns. I am only allowed to use it to aid myself, and this deck is not optimized for it. It also forces blocks, it does not make things unblockable. That means that I can't use it politically or as an Aikido play. It is just a heavy threat from me, and can never enhance other players' games. Very different cards. I considered it, and it doesn't fit, in my opinion.
NotEaster, Yawgmoth's Will is just a mass recursion for dramatic swing turns. Since my swings are mostly sorcery and instant based, I would consider Mizzix's Mastery. I have considered it myself in this list, but went for the broader card. Sometimes I consider the change anyway. If yours are not sorcery and instant based, consider something like Replenish (too expensive), or maybe Living Death. Depends on your list. You just want something to allow you to replay your big turns at a later time if they end up in your graveyard.
Phyrexian Arena is not too powerful, it is just not as swingy as I like. I run Necropotence, more powerful and more swingy. I advocate for Phyrexian Arena for card draw for those who don't run other, more subtle but more swingy, card draw.

Hey, back again! I've got a list cooking, based off of yours and a budget-friendly version I found by another user (he credited you, the list is quite similar). I have some questions.
Are there any acceptable cheap(er) sideboard cards to replace Yawgmoth's Will, or should I scrap the effect entirely? All the similar effects I could find would only hit certain kinds of cards (e.g. creatures or instants+sorceries), which I'm worried could undermine the card's purpose.
On a similar note, at what point do wheel effects not become efficient enough to replace Wheel of Fortune? Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fate are similar, but they both have significant downsides (especially seeing as the miracle cost on reforge is basically irrelevant).
Finally, I'm wondering if Solitary Confinement is too dependent on cards I'm not sure I want to shill out for, like Tithe. I've considered Phyrexian Arena, but that card must have been considered by you when making the deck, so its exclusion makes me nervous. Was the card advantage it gave too threatening to fit the deck?

chubba: Thank you so much!
draconaspyrothanus: That's exactly what Recall and Yawgmoth's Will are in the deck for. In fact, while they have other utility, almost their entire purpose is to be able to get back Phyrexian Altar and Rooftop Storm in emergencies.

harbingerofduh I'll take a look at that, the archfiend seems pretty good! As far as manabond goes, I've done some play testing on here, and it plays pretty alright. I like the fact that your whole hand gets discarded, so you refill back to 7, and also helps fuel Yawgmoth's Will, which is a very large value piece of this deck. However burgeoning also seems good, and since I actually have that now, I'll try it out! Any suggestions for what to take out for Archfiend of Ifnir? Again thanks for the suggestions!

Ok thanks! Yeah we run a lot of rituals because we only have 34 lands that make mana. I took the Cabal Ritual into the wish board for games when We'r mana screwed and stuck at 4 so I can use it the turn after to cast most any card in the deck. The floor is much lower on Lion's Eye Diamond but the ceiling is ridiculous when combined with Yawgmoth's Will with rituals in the graveyard gets me big mana to hard cast Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion. also brought that Necromancy into the wish board for stealing Mikaeus, the Unhallowed from an opposing self milling Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck OR taking pieces out of the Saffi and Friends combos.
Still need to find a place for Shriekmaw. suggestions anyone?

In my opinion, try taking out Sovereigns of Lost Alara for Vampiric Tutor, Karmic Justice for Cloud Cover, and Yawgmoth's Will for Vanishing which will give Zur an out for mass removal (assuming you're trying to protect him since you're running Diplomatic Immunity.
Also, Cyclonic Rift is a must!!!!!

I noticed a lack of Yawgmoth's Will which if nothing else is an excellent value card. Is there any reason you chose not to include it? Additionally, I believe that in your maybeboard Cabal Pit should actually be Cabal Coffers.
