Hail Phyrexia! This is the second iteration of Yawgmoth, Thran Physician . Welcome back to Phyrexia everyone. A lot has changed along with the glory of our leader Yawgmoth's return. With this, we bring to you all the pits of Rath, and dig deeper into the madness that is the Phyrexian Culture (Minus 4 Praetors)

You will notice we do not play the bad Phyrexian creatures or cards in the deck. Phyrexian Vatmother is like fringe good in this deck since we don't care about infecting ourselves as well so long as we get the job done of dealing with you. While infect is one way out of a game with this deck, we can deal with people through many other routes to include our own commander. Yawgmoth is very versatile to where he can enable a draw engine and combo engine for us to be able to deal with problems very fast and effectively. Essentially with Blood Artist, its free card draw and damage done to opponents. He becomes the sac outlet we always wanted. The typical Mike/Ballista is in the deck to make sure we can get the victory over our opponents if we need it. Old Razzy made his way into the deck and that took some convincing to get done.

We cut Vampire Nighthawk and brought in something that is strictly better. a 1/1 lifelink deathtouch. Vampire Hexmage is kind of a secret tech for this deck. We can cut the crap and remove a +1/+1 or -1/-1 counter from our creatures and be able to continue our combo. Plus, with Mike out, it does its effect a second time to kill some mother fuckers.

As per all the -1/-1 counter decks, Nest of Scarabs found a home in here as well. Initially we had the Nest of Scarabs combo deck going with Blowfly Infestation but I played a Hapatra combo deck before building this and it reminded me too much of Hapatra.

Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle found a home in this deck for infinite mana and infinite creatures. Infinite Draw engine as well for Yawgmoth.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Yawgmoth, Thran Physician + Zulaport Cutthroat Infinite Damage

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder he's some what of a strange one for this deck. I feel he has a home here, but I'm not 100% sold on him. Create fodder to sac to Yawgmoth for value. He feels like Ophiomancer . Great value card for the deck that enables my synergies along with my Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos .

We did add the good tutors into the deck to make this deck proficient and capable of standing its own ground. However we most likely have no reason to add Sidisi, Undead Vizier to this deck any time soon.

Command the Dreadhorde feels like it has a home here. It really does, but its a matter of knowing if it does or not 100% before I slip it in. It's essentially a win con of its own to steal everything, take a truckload of damage then win by sacrificing to Yawgmoth or an alter for the kill.

Currently, we are looking to cut some cards out of this deck to make it 100 cards, so bare with me while this deck transforms to a 100 card deck. Thanks. Enjoy.

A tribute to the old days of magic when Urza and Yawgmoth were at war. Long live the great Phyrexian!
