K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth

For each in a cost, you may pay 2 life rather than pay that mana.

Whenever you cast a black spell, put a +1/+1 counter on this.

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth Discussion

GreenHamma on Black Bolt | Athreos, Shadowborn [PRIMER]

Beware I agree with most of what you said. I do feel that sol ring and other fast rocks would help out depending on how the deck is suppose to play. My view is coming from playing K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth as the commander but my deck is also competitive and doesn't need the amount of Colored mana this one does. Mine pumps out is more pump out Thrumming Stone, Secret Salvage or Peer into the Abyss (which I highly recommend and Aetherflux Reservoir Turns 1-4.

Dark Confidant shouldn't hurt too much but I understand why you say what you do. A bonus is at least with the commander out it is draw that is hard to remove.

"I also like having some kind of backup to avoid getting my apostles Pithing Needle. I chose Mirror Entity but there are plenty of other alternatives." This is just hilarious... never would have thought about it.

Mana Confluence Definitely agree on this being changed. Would even swap it with Forbidden Orchard it gives a creature to the enemy yea but attack with a shadowborn make them block taking away their creature and yours then cast Secret Salvage.

I've been playing monoblack in EDH for a while! So, I have some advice I can offer that I hope will help you out!

Land base: 35 should be enough, consider some utility lands: Maze of Ith Cabal Coffers (get it while it is cheap!) maybe some land destruction like Field of Ruin, Wasteland, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, etc. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Temple of the False God Cabal Stronghold Castle Locthwain Rogue's Passage

Equipment to boost your general:

Sword of War and Peace, life gain and protection Sword of Light and Shadow, recursion and protection Sword of Hearth and Home, protection, blink your ETB kill a guy creatures, ramp Sword of Feast and Famine, expensive, but super good Lashwrithe: ouch Vorpal Sword: haha double ouch Blackblade Reforged Sword of Truth and Justice Sword of the Animist

I might try to add a few more win cons in your creature base

Vilis, Broker of Blood, draw and beat stick Razaketh, the Foulblooded, search and beat stick K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth ramp and can get big Archon of Cruelty been debating adding it to chainer

Ramp and utility suggestions

Bolas's Citadel: super good but can be rough if you aren't gaining a lot of life Caged Sun: super good ramp and works when your opponents tap Skyclave Relic: better than darksteel ingot Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools: good for draw and blockers Grief: hand control Thought-Knot Seer: hand control Ob Nixilis Reignited: stayed in my chainer deck for a while until Tevesh came along

Grim Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition over diabolic tutor (depends on you play group if they allow a "wish board," some don't, I run acquisition but may pick up a grim tutor for groups not okay with it)

I might lose some of the instant speed removal for:

Hero's Downfall: which you are running Deadly Rollick Eat to Extinction Vraska's Contempt

Some general removal as monoblack suffers from inability to handle certain types like enchant and artifact:

Karn Liberated Ugin, the Ineffable Steel Hellkite Nevinyrral's Disk

Suggested drops:

Tattered Mummy: Not that good, more consistent ways of grinding out damage Skyclave Shade: Bloodghast is better 1x Skeletal Grimace: I get the point, but there are better cards 1x Underworld Dreams: I am iffy on this one, Painful Quandary and Polluted Bonds may be better or good additions to complement it. The entire instant pool save hero's downfall and malicious affliction, there are better killspells Expedition Map: really only useful for setting up tron or land combos Liliana, Waker of the Dead: Liliana Vess works better

The True Meaning of Death and Taxes: this is my chainer death and taxes reanimator list, check it out for suggestions, I have a lot of cards in the maybeboard I have considered and even used at one point that may spark some ideas.

SueMe on Hogaak: My Favorite (Infinite) Combo Deck

1 month ago

Hey AwesomeDude2471!

I took out Life from the Loam because it seemed sooomewhat narrow (has an infinite combo with Bone Miser + Discard Outlet), but it's still playable. I've found that Rishkar's Expertise is just too slow, and has the downside of being green (can't be easily cast off Bone Miser or Sacrifice). Ad Nauseam costs less, is black, and can be cast at instant speed (a virtue that I have been neglecting for too long).

Just took out a Buried Alive for K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth; turns out, casting Hogaak for delve + life makes things a lot easier.

Hmm. Would you enlighten me on combos that Fain provides?

Daemogoth Titan is definitely a good Berserk/Greater Good target. I'm not so sure it's necessary though, Hogaak being our commander (in fact, I'm might take out Rotting Regisaur).

Incarnation Technique seems like good tech, especially for the slower metas. I'd probably add Reanimate first, though.

Necrotic Wound might be good in other builds, but I find that my particular build doesn't have a lot of cards in the yard at any moment in time (unless I'm going off).

Thanks for stopping by!

Additionally, Children of Korlis with Veinwitch Coven are a great match with Carnival of Souls / K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Blood Celebrant , and Blight Mound . It's a 5 card combo, but I think this deck can pull it off.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

2 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

SpammyV on Will WotC Use Phyrexian Mana …

2 months ago

Technically, they already have, with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth .

I would be fine if they didn't, though. With time the constructed-playable ones have settled into filling a niche in the metagame but free spells and color pie bleed are pretty dangerous.

I suppose more Phyrexian Mana abilities wouldn't be too bad.

Update: Tuning

Minus Massacre Wurm Plus K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth

Why: smooths curve and allows for more explosive plays

Minus Sedgemoor Witch Plus Wandering Archaic  Flip

Why: ekes out some advantage, back side fills hands to target for more discard effects

Minus Tragic Slip Plus Baleful Mastery

Why: Accomplishes the same thing that im seeking from tragic slip and is more efficient for what it does

Minus Clattering Augur Plus Glasses of Urza

Why: glasses are tutor able by Urza's Saga allow to more efficiently and effectively target hands with removal, also great T1 play. (FIND OF THE DAYYYY!!!!)

Minus Viscera Seer Plus Gate to Phyrexia

Why: Artifacts like Mirage Mirror can be a problem for turgid in terms of interaction so having the ability at hand as well as replacing a sac outlet with a sac outlet is ok with me. Secondly being able to remove artifacts at will in black sounds nice
