Perhaps these options prove to be interesting for you:

I read that you like gimmicky, unusual, combo decks.

Below is my home-brewed original deck helmed by Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign .

We Love Freebies! *Primer*

Commander / EDH Cloudius


It's one of its kind on Tappedout (have not come across a similar deck idea online as well). While being quirky, it still packs a punch and is able to win games, fast and furious.

Hope you like this original brew of mine. As always, feedback and suggestions are welcomed! Cheers.

KayneMarco I like the primer layout. Great job!

Interestingly, Zur was the 1st commander I want to build when I first venture into EDH! But I got distracted thereafter but ended up making other decks instead.

My favourite deck at the moment is my home brewed original Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck:

While it is still work in progress, I also like the layout for my Athreos, God of Passage deck below:

Commander / EDH Cloudius


Keep in touch buddy! Cheers.

griffstick on Scooping to Expropriate

Well Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign is basically a fair version of Narset, Enlightened Master but not really since once you get an extra turn you can start chaining extra turns and win just like a Narset, Enlightened Master deck. Have you ever played against a Narset, Enlightened Master deck? Its insane. The point is everyone scoops to Narset, Enlightened Master and if you built your Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign anything like that then people will scoop to any one extra turn 75 percent of the time.

Phaetion on Scooping to Expropriate

Reference: Expropriate

I had a couple of games in with my new Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck, and there were times I hit Expropriate off the top. The whole table agreed to scoop it up and move to the next game (The last time was convenient for me because I had to leave).

Reflecting on the card's performance made me wonder if it was running in the first place. I would've thought people would vote money (and I always voted time) whenever I cast it. Is scooping to the card resolving justified or not? If it's that bad, I'll remove it for something else. Thanks in advance.

Boros doesn't have those kind of abilities. The free cast spells are more of Blues area. Which is why cards like Maelstrom Wanderer, Intet, the Dreamer, Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign has those type of free cast ability. It doesn't match what Boros can do so it will never happen.

BlakeLeask thanks for the suggestion. I started with slightly more lands too but progressively replaced some with rocks (currently running 13 ramp) to accelerate the deck and allow me to drop Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign early.

It's a delicate balance so am still refining it. Do play test the deck on T/O and let me know what you think.

Give me a +1 too if you like how it runs. Cheers!

Unesh seems like a cool commander, have you also looked over at Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign for a sphinx tribal as well? She is cool as hell :P
