Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign

Legendary Creature — Sphinx

Flying, vigilance, menace

Whenever Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign attacks, reveal the top card of your library. If that card's converted mana cost is odd, you may cast it without paying its mana cost. Otherwise, draw a card.

Thanks Cloudius.

I think your deck's a bit more potent than mine, just due to budgeting restrictions on my end of things. Esper just seems like my favorite of the three color combos in mtg, and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign just seems like the best way to play those colors and get card advantage. The cmc of the revealed card doesn't matter as far as I'm concerned. If it's odd, I get to cast it for free, if not, I draw it. Either way, I can't see anything to be mad about. Not to mention, with its keywords, commander damage is a threat some players either can't stop or will forget about until it's too late to stop.

I like innovative decks and taking the path less traveled. Here's my rendition of a Creatureless Spellslinger Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign combo deck!

This home-brewed deck is extremely fun to pilot and refreshing to see in action. Through my play testing, this deck can combo off pretty consistently and as early as turn 3 when uninterrupted.

I'm constantly brainstorming on ways to improve this deck so feel free to add your peculiar and crazy concoctions to the brew! I welcome all things wacky, bizarre and freakish into my cauldron of ideas!

I've recently added a new section to the Primer to document interesting match-ups and game plays featuring the deck. Feel free to check out the new section "Chronicles of War".

The deck recently hit 100 upvotes and 10,000 views. I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by, gave suggestions and upvoted the deck. Let's keep the support flowing in!

Thanks everyone in advance. Cheers!

Cloudchaser.Kestrel Digesting your deck and my comments will be posted soon.

Fun commander choice. I love the include of In Garruk's Wake just for the fun of top decking it when Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign attacks. You've hit on a majority of the cards I'd want to include. I actually want to build this deck now :D. What about Time Warp or Clone Legion ? Clone Legion would be pretty hilarious to flip with Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign .

marco-piatti I think the walkers make decent commanders but a lot of others disagree with me. It is worth noting that in each of those decks this year and most previous years there are other cards included in the deck that can be the commander out of the box. Both Varina, Lich Queen and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign come in the Aminatou, the Fateshifter deck. That said the most important aspect of commander for most of us is that we play a commander that 'feels right' so if you are most interested in scarab/oloro go with that. You'll have more fun :)

Mostly, i tryed to sinergise my creatures, like Doom Whisperer & Approach of the Second Sun

What i do it's manipulate the top with Approach of the Second Sun , with Doom Whisperer and Sensei's Divining Top in the field, then Pay 6 Life (even with 1 life total this will works since you gain 7 lifes) and use the top to take Approach of the Second Sun and hard cast it in the same turn in second main fase to win the game very oddly.

Also, Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign works very well with Artisan of Kozilek and Sepulchral Primordial / Diluvian Primordial giving me a TON of Value with at least 2 huge creatures, and probably 5 creatures or 3 other good spells (and also get rid of those spells), get the most valuable from others graveyards.

If there's something to improve it's probably use some fetch lands, and i'm considering Penance and Haunted Crossroads

Both of you are right magnusactor and PapaC83 about Zur the Enchanter and Oath of Ajani .

I've tried Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Privileged Position it hasn't worked too much, specially indestructible.

For Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon I never thought about him, but with Captain Sisay and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign could be an interesting addition.

Knight-Captain of Eos could be good, but I'm quite satisfied with Spike Weaver probably better than indestructible. I truly need to test with the combination of Elspeth, Knight-Errant

I don't think that Sword of Body and Mind would work fine in this deck, but it gives me the idea of trying Umezawa's Jitte .

Grafted Exoskeleton it's a personal choice and every time it hit the table this equipment had the job done.

Cant wait to see the new set War of the Spark. I'm pretty sure I'm going to see something good for my deck.

As having Yennett in play and attacking is central to the deck, I'm contemplating increasing my Counterspells/Protection package to protect Yennett from being countered/removed.
