Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign

Legendary Creature — Sphinx

Flying, vigilance, menace

Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign Discussion

SteelSentry on The odds is the only ...

If this is for commander, I would look at building a Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck.

Cloudius on Insidious Dreams or Cruel Tutor ...

6 days ago

I made a creatureless Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign combo deck, and totally fell in love with how the deck runs.

Am thinking of adding more Top of Library Manipulation cards into the deck and am deciding between Cruel Tutor and/or Insidious Dreams.

Let me know which you'd add and why. Feel free to suggest better alternatives too!

PrideGreen You're right about Worn Powerstone. ETB tapped is its Achilles heel and slows down the tempo of the deck, when we're always striving to cast Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign asap.

To be honest, I've never drawn Condescend in the games I've played. On paper, marrying Counterspell and Scry is awesome and warrants a slot in the deck. There are much stronger "hard counters" out there for sure, so am taking a compromise here to gain the Scry ability. Will probably test it further before deciding whether to axe it.

So for now, I'd try out Preordain over Worn Powerstone. I've ordered an Insidious Dreams and that'll go in once I received it. Then its headache all over again to decide which card to cut. LOL

I always appreciate it when folks take time to go through my Primer, understand the concept and ideas behind the deck, before making suggestions and/or cuts. So kudos to you for doing so! Thanks once again.

Cloudius on Should Yennett join the Bandits?

2 weeks ago

Long story short, I made a quirky creatureless Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck.

Been enjoying it so far and has been tweaking it regularly to make it more consistent.

Hall of the Bandit Lord seem to synergize with Yennett well, letting her attack the turn she was casted. But before I sink my money into the land, would like to hear from you guys.

Would you add Hall of the Bandit Lord to the deck?

If yes, which card would you take out?

gvazdaus, typically my wins look like a Heart Sliver + Basal Sliver + Gemhide Sliver/Manaweft Sliver + Sliver Queen infinite mana combo. My meta is Control Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign, Voltron Sram, Senior Edificer, and Goodstuff/Synergy Reki, the History of Kamigawa. The worst of it is that politically, my deck is very weak. My playgroup tends to go for me first, and it quickly becomes a game of Archenemy. Typically the best thing I can do is play a bunch of Slivers and attempt to combo out when the table least expects it. Usually it works a lot better than i'd expect until the Yennett player gets a CounterScepter online, then i'd just be hurtin.

Rarely do I ever swing wide though. In case you were wondering.

Cloudius on Wincons for Quirky Creatureless Yennett ...

3 weeks ago

So I decided to take the path less travelled and made a creatureless Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign Spellslinger deck.

The deck is extremely fun to pilot and thus far, the main wincons are via Proteus Staff or Approach of the Second Sun.

Hoping to tap on the quirky and zany minds of the brilliant deck brewers out there to suggest more alternate wincons for the deck, while adhering to the creatureless theme.

All suggestions and comments are welcomed, however wacky, bizarre and unorthodox the are!

P.S. While you're viewing the deck, let me know whether the layout and color schemes are reader friendly. I've been dolling up the page and would some feedback on that too!

+1 for Top deck matters deck and a deck name that is very befitting of the theme!

The deck looks strong and really fun (for you that is). Evil Laughter

I recently made a more casual and funky creatureless Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck with a similar "top deck matters" theme. She's certainly more restrictive than Narset and doesn't dig as deep as well.

Would love some suggestions and feedback from you since you've been piloting Narset for quite awhile now. Cheers!

+1 I've a soft spot for Dimir and cause the mention of Brago, King Eternal caught my eye as he's my very 1st EDH commander. I'm also a big fancy of funky innovative builds!

Cavern Harpy seems like a nice fit in this deck, allowing repeated bounce at a cost of 1 life.

I recently made a creatureless Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck and thought some of the top of library manipulation spells could come in handy in your deck should you want to strengthen this area.

Conch Horn an inexpensive mini Brainstorm.

Dimir Machinations an underused, under-rated card. It's versatile as you can use it on yourself to rearrange the top of your library, use it on your opponent to control his next few draws, or act as a tutor for your key 3 CMC combo pieces like Arcane Adaptation or Words of Wind.

Sensei's Divining Top is awesome too if you've the budget for it.
