Not that you need to add more nonland cards right now, but I also like Genesis Chamber in these types of decks so it might be worth considering.

KvltWind: Apologies, I must have missed your comment! Nether Traitor or Reassembling Skeleton is the creature getting reanimated, while Phyrexian Altar plus either Genesis Chamber or Pawn of Ulamog make the necessary mana.

Skydaddy: Are you confused about how it works rules-wise, or about why I'm including it in this deck? It makes a bunch of tokens each turn (not just your turn), which you can sacrifice to Yawgmoth. Moreover, you can block with them THEN sacrifice for cards/removal. Pair with Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat or Deathgreeter or Whip of Erebos for best results ;) It's basically Ophiomancer on steroids.

So a similar but cheaper cmc alternative would be Butcher Ghoul. Also Putrid Goblin for a persist version. If you want a more expensive card that can help generally try looking at Cauldron of Souls. Also, in my opinion Genesis Chamber is one of the most underrated cards in commander, especially in terms of generating sac fodder for things like Phyrexian Altar or anything that benefits from frequent sac targets.

What specific qualities do you want for your sac fodder? Is it just low cmc self recurring, or anything else you are looking for?

As for your Mana, it's looking better. Still lean for my tastes.

Daedalus19876 and bushido_man96 - How do you feel about cards like Hunted Troll, Grismold, the Dreadsower and Genesis Chamber in a deck like this to ensure opponents have creatures so I can trigger Glissa?

Consider Proclamation of Rebirth in the sideboard in case your board is wrathed. Mentor of the Meek and Dawn of Hope are good card advantage engines. Genesis Chamber and Impact Tremors work well with Norin the Wary.

Hey thanks! Much appreciated.

In a nutshell, the deck plays with a combination of two types of cards: the ones used to activate Barrin’s ability and the one’s we generally want to return back to our hand. In a dire situation we can target our opponent’s creatures but that is not the primary focus.

Cards like: Hatching Plans, Ichor Wellspring, Mycosynth Wellspring are budget cards thatbwork perfectly as sac fodder and give some sort of reward for sending them to the graveyard. Metallurgic Summonings and Genesis Chamber are great examples of ways to generate sac fodder at minimal cost as well. Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Matter Reshaper among others give a little more of a reward when sent to the graveyard.

Then there are the cards we want to target with Barrin’s ability. Basically just a bunch of stuff with delicious ETBs. Master of Waves, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Sower of Temptation, Myr Battlesphere and Torrential Gearhulk are prime examples of this. Large payoff if we can get them to bounce multiple times.

All the instants and sorceries are a basic round-up of counterspells and spells that will help syphon through the deck. When building this, the other person who helped me mainly used cards from Guilds of Ravnica and later. So mostly newer cards.

I’ve only played a few games with this and it’s definitely fun. Biggest problem i’ve noticed is I need more firepower. I’m thinking of adding in Kozilek and Jin-Gataxius just as some potential finishers. I’m not a blue player either but Barrin appealed to me for his obscurity and the fact his ability is really solid.

Thanks for commenting and I’ll check out your Naban deck to see if I can help you out!

Profet93 My issue with Awaken the Erstwhile is that you discard too and that since you are facing three opponents you won't be able to get rid of even half the zombies created this way most of the times. You can't proliferate with Yawghmoth because you discarded all your cards. You need some Blowfly Infestation/Crumbling Ashes set up to make that card actually insane. On the other hand i get that Genesis Chamber is a key combo piece, i would't cut it but i still don't think you can always benefit from it more than your opponents.

Daedalus19876 i'm sure you know your deck better than i do. I was asking out of curiosity just because i'm building a yawghmoth deck myself with a lower budget and i wanted to know your opinion about those cards since i'm trying to build a version similar to yours. Also i was wandering if the deck could benefit from more protection for the commander with classics cards like Swiftfoot Boots since yawgh is the engine of the deck.
