K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth Discussion

Tortured Existence seems kind of dumb with Tormod, the Desecrator. Makes a dude for assuming you have 2 creatures to cycle between. Gives you good sac fodder or just lets you make a bunch of dudes and beat someone to death really quickly. Especially if K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is in play.

Definitely need to listen to Last_Laugh. He's helped me a substantial amount with a few of my decks too.

Cards you might wanna consider that I don't think anyone has mentioned yet:

Dockside Extortionist - depending on your playgroup this can ramp you an insane amount.

Feast on the Fallen - allows you to do some truly degenerate things when combined with Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Goblin Bombardment.

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth - stay off the throne and make your spells cheaper (easy to get +1/+1 counters on it, and can help stem the bleeding if you're losing life too fast)

Deathbringer Thoctar - opponents can never have a creature with 1 toughness again. Give it deathtouch and they can just never have creatures.

Dismember - really good spot removal

Snuff Out - more free removal

Chainer, Nightmare Adept - haste enabler + being able to cast creatures out of the bin is pretty sweet (gives marchesa haste from the command zone).

Soldevi Adnate - fantastic ramp & sac outlet.

Thalakos Deceiver - your creatures are now my creatures

Also, depending on how degenerate you wanna be....

Just trying to understand this combo: A fun combo I've found is Coveted Prize + K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth . If you have a full party, first search for Archaeomancer, then recast and search for Rite of Replication and kick it copying Archaeomancer.

What is K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth doing for you in this combo? Just looking at it it seems like hes not really doing anything for it. And the result is that you get to cast a much of stuff from your library and graveyard right?

Marwyn, the Nurturer is definitely my favorite, but I'm also a fan of Gargos, Vicious Watcher, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, and Yarok, the Desecrated. Here's the link to my Marwyn, the Nurturer and Gargos, Vicious Watcher decks: Gargos And His Hydra Buddies Too Many Elves (Marwyn Commander). I'll update my Marwyn deck description soon so you can see what the cards are for. Love this forum!

Since you've got so many planeswalkers and you're going a proliferation route I think The Chain Veil might be a good fit for you.

Also K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for mana purposes.

If I may ask, what purpose is K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth serving in this deck? Since black isn't featured particularly heavily in this deck, and he isn't any of the party subtypes, I feel like his spot could be better utilized by something else.

Same essentially goes for Zur the Enchanter since only 3 of your enchantments can be tutored by him to begin with.

Training Grounds, Thran Turbine, Heartstone, and Biomancer's Familiar can all help out with paying for Tazri's ability.

Manaless dredge is generally difficult to pull off in EDH

I think K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is a decent candidate for this build personally since he lets you directly convert your life into mana even without the citadel in play. Plus if you play anything with extort, it become a wincon when combined with K'rrik in a multiplayer game. The problem is that mono-black won't get you access to as many dredge cards. So unfortunately the best K'rrik could probably do is a Mana-lite dredge.

Most manaless dredge decks I've seen tried in EDH have been 5 color decks.

Also for a top deck manipulator would definitely recommend Scroll Rack. It's pricy but definitely worth it.

I couldn't come up with a good title. Anyway,

I always thought that manaless dredge was super amazingly cool, but I also think Commander is awesome, and unfortunately, the two don't go together.

UNTIL NOW (possibly).

Basically, a lot of my EDH playing friends think that Bolas's Citadel is an amazing card, and even though it can be pretty good, people inevitably hit a land and then end up having to pass after going pseudo-storm mode.

I then had an idea.

NO LANDS. (Drops bass).

Basically, my concept was to play one of two commanders, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic or K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth.

Both builds would attempt to use a stupid quantity of mana artifacts in order to replace the lack of lands in the deck. They would then also play a few tutors.

Oloro, obviously, gains life, allows more colors, and once out, allows for card draw and burn through his ability.

K'rrik has life gain, helps play the Citadel in the first place, but does not seem quite as good in my opinion (for this build).

It is also a possibility that only a very small number of lands would be played, possibly with a strong top-deck manipulator (such as Proteus Staff).

My main question is, do you all think that this could be at all viable (like, maybe a 7 out of 10, if built correctly?)
