Budget Yawgmoth that is going without some of the more powerful, prolific cards available: ( Liliana, Dreadhorde General ; Mikaeus, the Unhallowed ; Black Market ; Jet Medallion ; Thrilling Encore ; Torment of Hailfire ; Nim Deathmantle ; etc.)

Regardless, the keys are available to power the aristocrat engine that we have here. Some alternate means of utilizing -1/-1 counters could also come from cards such as Glistening Oil and Blowfly Infestation , as examples for cards to switch out for.

Currently, the only win conditions involve bleeding our opponents dry. We ideally want to do this with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician + One of our 'aristocrat' cards ( Zulaport Cutthroat ) + Two of our Undying Creatures ( Butcher Ghoul and Geralf's Messenger ). Alternatively, we can use Ichor Rats to set up an infect victory via proliferate or Tainted Strike .

Initial Thoughts/Tests:

Feels like the deck is a bit creature heavy, even on a budget. First step I'm thinking is to consolidate what creatures I have, and switch them out for non-creature spells (ramp and recursion most likely).
