Hey, nice start on a budget with upgrading the Wilhelt precon. In the deck editor you can add CMDR tag to Wilhelt text making him the official Commander of your deck.

1x Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver *CMDR*

You currently have 2x Rooftop which can't have in Commander. Some cards here that are in my opinion not worth playing because there's better options on a budget.

Dreadhorde Invasion and Midnight Reaper are in the Wilhelt precon, consider adding them back in? They're some of the better cards in the precon because of they're repeatable effects especially Invasion with Wilhelt.

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice casual budget version, but are undying creatures other than Mikaeus and Flayer really worth it?

Consider more enablers to get +1/+1 counters on your creatures?

If you're going for an attacking strategy then consider a few more fliers that have some added value when they die or when they ETB?

Bloodtracker + Sword of Hours is a nice interaction. Some sac outlets are helpful to sac creatures who have counters to get their die or ETB triggers.

You have several high CMC creatures here, more reanimation and enablers could help.

Olivia, Mobilized for War is a +1/+1 counter enabler and an enabler for reanimation.

Good luck with your deck.

Hi wallisface,thanks for your comment! 1) i prefering the addictional cost of Spark Harvest. 2) i can increase creatures but Blisterpod and Butcher Ghoul are valid for two. and you can utilize Butcher Ghoul many times with Retribution of the Ancients

Hey man, i notice you don’t have any undying creatures. These are the BEST creatures with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as hexan just slap them with a -1/-1 counter to reset them.

Butcher Ghoul , Sightless Ghoul , and Treacherous Pit-Dweller are great and could replace some of your other token creators. Or run big daddy Mikaeus, the Unhallowed to give anything undying. Gray Merchant of Asphodel with undying, and yawgmoth reseting it? You just won.

Cards like Blight Mound , and Nest of Scarabs also pop off hard with yawgmoth.

Hi tearrow,you can use Spark Harvest instead of Bone Splinters . What do you think about Bastion of Remembrance ? you have one soldier for sacrifice and an another "blood artist's effect". Another cards that you can use are Perilous Myr , Poison-Tip Archer , Bone Picker , Butcher Ghoul .

I did this awhile back, and changed my deck up Bastion of Remembrance is a HUGE card for this kind of deck. You can also add Butcher Ghoul and Geralf's Messenger if you want to switch it up and add the Undying Death Combo.

But Bastion is a MUST have in this deck.

Hey, well done for your first Commander deck. You have good card sense on a budget and seem to already understand the importance of mana curve :)

Open the Armory can get Skullclamp or Animate Dead . Court of Grace can create flying tokens, either an Angel or a Spirit and it can be repeatable draw with the monarch. Archon of Justice has a powerful die trigger with Teysa. Sun Titan can be repeatable reanimation and 3 CMC or less gives you many options of permanents to reanimate. Titan is excellent with Animate Dead .

Swords to Plowshares is a staple instant removal spell for white, but because Teysa is a Human then Dire Tactics is a less than $0.50 option. Generous Gift is a versatile instant removal spell. Austere Command is a versatile board wipe. Fanatical Devotion is a sac outlet for repeatable protection from most removal and in combat. Mentor of the Meek can be repeatable draw when creating 1/1 tokens.

Hi there, I too run a Yawgmoth deck. And I also try to avoid infinte combos. To achieve this, you shouldn't run creatures with undying like Butcher Ghoul or Geralf's Messenger But I like your picks and the idea to go full on discard and proliferate. Maybe check out my decklist? Like Yawgmoths into light II
