In Yasovas Russia, Deck plays You

Commander / EDH* Aikido Multiplayer RUG (Temur)



A fun to play deck I create for my GF with some unusual cards.

Basically it should be easy to play and have enough interaction and variety to be fun again and again. She already has a Meren of Clan Nel Toth-Deck she loves, but a bit more to choose from is nice and I wanted this to be some sort of budget beside what I already have. A lot of stealing is going on here, it is intentional that the deck works with and without the commander and has a lot of good stuff in it without loosing the focus like a goodstuff deck. Well...

Kind-of secret tech was Teferi's Veil I changed it to Trading Post when I realized it wouldn't work as thought... :/ Thada Adel, Acquisitor (which can be unblockable) is providing more stuff for Inspiring Statuary besides making my equipment double as pseudo-mana with improvise. This is a lot of fun!

Cards I'm on the brink of cutting: Blatant Thievery (for i.E. Dominus of Fealty or Reins of Power). And at some point I might swap Blood Frenzy for Berserk. Probably even Hazoret's Favor? TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS! =)

I use the Maybeboard for cards to remember and consider, priority to German ones. +1 and suggest cards if you want to. =)

Strionic Resonator doubles the ability of Yasova and Thada Adel and should definitely be in. If your GF likes Thada Adel i have a deck with her as the commander that's a lot of fun, Serial Shoplifting.

You have to be able to break through shroud/hexproof. Arcane Lighthouse or artifact destruction maybe? Hellkite Tyrant can steal all the boots/greaves and fits with the stealing theme. Cultural Exchange can steal Shrouded creatures because it targets the player, not the creature.

Blade of Selves could be pretty funny and destroys a legendary if that's your goal.

City of Shadows could be another sac outlet but you seem to have plenty of those already.

Unfortunately Teferi's Veil does not work the way you want it to. See here for details.

Thanks for the link! I'm pretty sure it works though, I checked a lot of forums about it, but I'll do so again with the thread you mentioned and post here again! =)

It seems you are right, very sad :/ Okay, then I have to find a good replacement for it. Suggestions?

Crivaro, I've run a Yasova deck before and it's a powerhouse. Something you should really consider is Xenagos, God of Revels. What you're going to want to do is pump Yasova up a ton so you can gain control of almost anything on the battlefield, than during the beginning of combat on your turn give her +X/+X with Xenagos so you can take control of even more stuff.

This solves two problems at once; If you're lacking in pumps, he can be a swift boost that you need. And if you're low on creatures, he's an Indestructible tank.

Another beautiful God is Kruphix, God of Horizons. Sit back and tap your mana and pool it all together into one big colorless clump. When it comes time during the beginning of your combat phase, dump all of the colorless to pay for the cost, so that you can free up your mana base for more costs. Essentially, if you plan right, you can open up approximately 30% more mana since you no longer need to tap for that . And again, you get another Indestructible tank.

Interesting ideas, thank you so much! I have both, I will test both a couple of times. It seems fun! Included them in the maybeboard. =)

Sundial of the infinite will let you keep your opponent's creatures, kinda like willbreaker.

Crivaro says... #18

Sadly not. Sundial's ability will even 'shortening' the control effect from Yasova's second ability. Because Yasova's ability give you a control effect "until end of turn" and Sundial's ability make "end of turn" happens earlier than normal. :/
