Maybe Culling the Weak can be your replacement for Burnt Offering.

I like Bolas's Citadel because it combos with Sensei's Divining Top or Necropotence to win. A lot of people run Aetherflux with that combo but I cut Aetherflux and I have never not wok with just the Citadel and Top or Necropotence.

Chainer, Dementia Master is a fun one. He combos with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth and any sac outlet to go (essentially) infinite with Kokusho and truly infinite with Gary.

Chainer and K'rrik are usually my targets for Buried Alive (along with Viscera Seer ) or Entomb or I use Final Parting to get one of them to graveyard and Reanimate to my hand.

Nim Deathmantle pairs well with Kokusho. Or it can just win the game with Su-Chi and Blasting Station .

Razaketh, the Foul-Blooded is a card I haven't yet added but intend to.

Hi! My advice is replace some of the creatures with cheap or free counter magic. I would defiantly cut Wonder , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Spark Double and Throatseeker the rest is up to you. Don't under estimate free creatures without evasion like Memnite and Phyrexian Walker .

Some disruption spells i would recommend are Commandeer , Chain of Vapor , Flusterstorm . Their expensive so some budget options are Fatal Push , Misdirection , Murderous Cut , Spell Pierce . Also i would recommend some library manipulation like Spy Network , Ponder , Mission Briefing , Lim-Dul's Vault (its good but expensive). Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top are also great top deck manipulation but probably no worth the money.

I recon Access Tunnel , Blinkmoth Nexus , Halimar Depths and Mystic Sanctuary should replace Path of Ancestry , Temple of the False God , Isolated Watchtower , High Market .

Finally i would recommend some better high CMC cards to reveal with Yuriko activation's. Some of the cards i recommended already double as good reveals but you could add: Sea Gate Restoration  Flip, Nexus of Fate , Time Warp . Their not budget friendly but there good. Take out two lands if you use Sea Gate Restoration and Agadeem's Awakening  Flip for obvious reasons.

I hope this helps :D

First of: You have 13 cards with white pips.... but only swamps as lands?

Andy it seems linke Elenda, the Dusk Rose could be a nice addition as she delivers lifelink und lifelinkers when she dies. Heliod, Sun-Crowned looks like he could power up your lifegain-theme.

As you are generating tons of life Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth are made for your list. In addition Dream Devourer could ramp you und protect you from discard.

And what about aristocrats favourite sac-outlet Ashnod's Altar ?

You have 21 cards mit cmc 5 or greater which seems a lot. Have you already tested is? How does it perform so far?

TheoryCrafter, K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth sounds excellent, I would love to add him in but am having a bit of trouble finding a spot. Maybe take out 1x Grave Titan and then either 1x Phage the Untouchable or something else? Banehound is wonderful and actually helps out a lot, will definitely replace with Vampire of the Dire Moon . Any other suggestions?

Noire_Samhain on What Makes Phyrexian Mana More …

Because the only life that matters in many decks is the last one, and many decks are willing to pay that life to get good effects for cheaper or even for free ( Gitaxian Probe for example- that sucker's banned in many formats for a reason). And they actively allow decks to play with effects from a lot of colors with no real downsides, something WOTC doesn't generally like.

Hybrid lets you CHOOSE between two different kinds of mana, and while some can break the color pie in minor ways, they aren't cheaper or free when cast with your choice. For the most part. Its harder to get specific pips over generic costs, so cards like Beseech the Queen or Reaper King are oddballs but make sense with that ethos.

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth was only printed because he's only really good for EDH (one of only two formats that CAN use him). And even then, he's really good in mono-Black/Black-heavy decks.

Have you considered finding a spot for K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth ? It would be a bit of a gamble, but with all the lifegain you currenty have in the deck I think you can manage it.

Also, may I suggest Banehound ? It doesn't have deathtouch but the haste can help you to reach an early lead.

Happy Hunting!
