Why Yasova?

Some guys may think, get out of here! Surrak is better, but I wanted to abuse the fact that Yasova is a faster drop to put the threat on the tabble and punish the opponent with tempo cards, strike two or three lands and do nothing in the meanwhile don't get you anywhere.Theres also the fact that putting your opponent behind makes him only be able to drop minor threats which you can steal with Yasova's ability and use against her/him.

How Yasova?

Simple, try to get yasova on board as fast as you can to abuse her 4 power to punish your opponent while you destroy or tap some lands, after one or two LD you can save your hand and use the 3 mana ability to "remove" blockers and use them to punish even more.

It's very important not to over-extend yourself. If you've got 2+ creatures in play hold onto the other critters for the post-apocalypse. Then you bring a Broodbraid or Goblin Dark-Dwellers.


Wasteland + Crucible of Worlds

Stifle/Trickbind + Parallax Tide

Twin Combo

Yasova's abbility + Beast Within/Swan Song/Pongify/Rapid Hybridization

I'm running out of gas, especcialy if my opponent drop lands and lands and lands.

Propaganda could help to slow them down some more. Crawlspace would be another way to limit attackers until you can take some more lands away.

I'm not sure about your budget, but Strip Mine and Crucible of Worlds should help in slowing down your opponents playing lands. Land Equilibrium, Ward of Bones and Territorial Dispute might also work. Territorial Dispute would work better if you play creatures that put lands into play, like Budoka Gardener.

I'd also strengthen your Twin combo by playing Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Chord of Calling, Worldly Tutor, Mystical Tutor and Vexing Shusher if counterspells are prevalent in your meta.

bushido_man96 The problem of these cards is that if my opponent is putting so many creatures in the board it means that my LD didn't work so well, so I probably already have lost.

LoneCrusader399 I can't use Stripe Mine because is illegal in Duel Commander, so I'm using Wasteland. I'll definitely consider put Crucible on the list, helps me with my auto LD too.

Wards of bones and territorial are too heavy, but land equilibrium in a very good card that I didn't know, thanks for the tip!

Kiki-jiki is too color demanding, chord can be used because half of the deck is green, chord and wordly are very good additions, lay down some LD to stop my opponent and then strikes with a fast twin. Vexing protects the combo, thats very nice too.

Thanks a lot for the commentaries!!!!
