Bubbling Muck Discussion

ShutUpMokuba on Yawgmoth M.D

TheBoraxKid Thanks for your suggestions. I've recently bought some cards from a friend of mine who sold his collection and some of the cards you suggested were in there. Ayara, First of Locthwain, Blowfly Infestation and Bubbling Muck were among them and i'll try and eventually put into the final list. Grave Titan is not in the list because i wanted to lower the mana curve. Jet Medallion is an auto inclusion if it weren't for the price.

I saw your deck and left a +1. I'm also testing (not the best moment to do that, so i was testing to be more precise) Tombstone Stairwell.. this card played well the few times i used it. I've not access to a lot of mana but in a more performing build like yours may be even better. I got the idea from the primer deck https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/black-plague-on-the-rocks-yawgmoth-edh-primer/ the owner of the list explained to me how good the card was in the comments and i wanted to give it a try. It looks busted so you may want to try it too.

Hey, love the list, +1 from me.

I too have a Yawgmoth list I’ve been fine-tuning for awhile now. I’ve got the opportunity to play it quite a bit and I feel like it’s getting a lot tighter. If you’re interested in checking it out you can find it here: Nocturnal Majesty: Sworn to Black We'll Always Be

Some all star cards that I have has great success with are

Ayara, First of Locthwain: this card can do so much chip damage over the game, not to mention Yawgmoth decks tend to lose life pretty aggressively. This card helps a ton with that and can be sort of a mini-Commander.

Blowfly Infestation: helps wipe the opponent’s field at double the speed. Pretty powerful stuff.

Dark Ritual, Bubbling Muck, Jet Medallion: Probably some of the strongest ramp for mono-black Commanders and helps recast Yawgmoth if he is destroyed. Remember, you’ll have a huge target on your Commander’s back simply by playing him, so make sure you can afford to recast him multiple times per game.

Grave Titan: This boi is just straight up USDA certified BEEF. You’ll obviously get the 3 bodied just from casting him but if left unchecked, it’s not unheard of to get upwards of 4-8 zombies. Plus, having a 6/6 Deathtoucher on defense is pretty nice too.

Tell me what you think of my suggestions and feel free to take a peek at my deck if you’d like and tell me what you think.

Looking forward to chatting.

I would consider cutting: Bloodtracker, Dutiful Attendant or Bubbling Muck. Bloodtracker being my top choice.

For sure add Sol Ring.

Lower CMC mana rocks: Arcane Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Dimir Signet that ETB untapped to make black mana are good with Zombies. K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is not a Zombie, but has a powerful ability when playing a lot of black cards. He makes black mana costs able to be paid for with 2 life instead of mana. Make him huge with Gravecrawler and other black Zombies.

Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Bubbling Muck. Rituals are options for ramp especially Dark which can help to cast Scarab fast. Soldevi Adnate not a Zombie, but can be repeatable sac of Zombies to make black mana.

Great comments, thanks for the ideas!

Demonic Collusion is really cool and definitely helps with those big Living Death turns. A lot of the time, my Insidious Dreams wind up just being set ups for Living Death, and this does the same thing but better!

I love Gamble, great idea. It's a very Rakdos theme.

Deserted Temple is great for rebuys on Coffers. I think it's definitely worth lowering the basic swamp count by one.

I'm not a big fan of Past in Flames in a deck that doesn't have a huge number of rituals to really take advantage of it. Because of the cost of playing the card, I think the most common scenario would be to pay 4 or 5 mana for it and get back 3 from one ritual or maybe a bit above breaking even for two. Obviously, doubling Bubbling Muck for a turn is huge, or a big chain of rituals, but I'm not sure how common that will be.

Wheel of Fortune is a great suggestion, but I don't have a copy and it's a wee bit expensive. I might try to pick one up in the future.

Hey discipleofgary73! At first, let me thank you a lot for your feedback. It's very helpful.

Your theme suggestions are all really nice and I already tested some of them before to come up with the version presented there.

Those which didn't make the cut were the following ones: Pestilence Demon (a cool card, with the perfect flavorness, despite being too clunky atm for my meta - I'll add it to the maybeboard for more casual runs), Phyrexian Plaguelord (a pretty good creature removal I'm not convinced about being needed there / nice flavor tho), Pox (land hate always draws you a big target on the head in my pod, but still this could be a game-changing card that fits the theme and powers up Burning Sands / I'm definitely up to try it again), Torment of Hailfire (even if I like that card as one - if not maybe the one, the chosen one - of my favorites, I'm a bit bored of playing it all my decks containing Black - but you're right, it does make sense in there).

I do like the suggestion of Bubbling Muck as most of the deck is black-centered, I'll certainly make room for it. Pontiff of Blight also feels nice, but I think I already got too many mana sinks and don't storm off efficiently enough to use him at its best. Heartless Hidetsugu is an interesting one. It's some bonkers lifeloss outlet I'll always want in a Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck, not sure if it goes there though because of the redundancy it creates with just a bit better cards. Torment of Scarabs is good but one-sided, and generates some hate / I cut Painful Quandary for that reason so I doubt about it being better. Binding Agony is a weird card I actually didn't know it existed - it's like a cheap Repercussion onto one creature - which feels fair. With White enchantment recursion and infinite doll-combos it could be dope I second you on that, I'll see if I figure out a way where it could be nearly as effective there since it's surely an appealing tool.

Otherwise I also tried Black Market for some time, but preferred to run Revel in Riches over it given that it does allow me to generate other mana sources than only black ones. I'm still not really sure about it, but having both in the list feels redundant as the ramp for pestilence effects to occur asap wasn't the main problem I was facing through my few games. I might still reconsider it if things don't stand this way. It's not that cheap to play at 5ccm and doesn't make any difference with Revel in Riches at the attention it attracts from my playgroup removals.

Even if it's a bit sad, I've to admit that Garza is pretty much useless as it stands. Sometimes in long-term games where everyone is playing Control and exterminated the aggro players, I'm able to cast her and draw between one or two cards with her second ability, but that's all. I wish there was a way to make us of her without choosing to go for a typical Voltron strategy involving the Swords' package / Greaves / Jitte / etc. That being told, Kusari-Gama could be of use if I decide to go for more creatures. The whole new Sword of Sinew and Steel you also suggested enables me to deal with things actually out of my range and I might consider tuning up a bit the decklist for it. Scytheclaw is cool and fits the themes, I forgot about that card.

Smoke is overall a really good card, I just hope it doesn't turn the deck too much into a Staxxy one / feels pretty good against Saskia. I'm not fond of Counterflux but I guess it also could be useful against this annoying Pod dude. Fool's Demise is a card I never played because I always felt it was overcosted, but I might give it its chance for once and see what happens!

I'll let you know about future changes if you're interested, thanks again for your help!

Solely theme-based, not necessarily things that will improve the deck suggestions: Bubbling Muck, Pontiff of Blight, Pestilence Demon, Heartless Hidetsugu, Pox, Phyrexian Plaguelord, Torment of Hailfire, Torment of Scarabs, Binding Agony. I've seen agony be used for infinite combos with stuffy doll, but as far as I know, they all need white.
I think Black Market could help power up the pestilence effects.
Some goodies for Garza: Kusari-Gama, Nemesis Mask, Scytheclaw, Argentum Armor, Ring of Valkas, Sword of Sinew and Steel, and Sword of Fire and Ice.
And some final thoughts: Smoke, Counterflux, and Fool's Demise.

Thanks for the advice. I used to play Bubbling Muck and Culling the Weak is on my buylist of cards to tryout. Sacrifice seems pretty good as well. I'll try some of these out to see how much faster I can build the combo. Just dug a Viscera Seer out of my collection so I'm gonna playtest that one as well.
