Morbid Curiosity Discussion

orpheum on Yawgmoth, Blight of the Thran

Thank you so much for your kind words! This is a really fun deck to play (at least for me), and there are some great synergies as well. The moment he was spoiled, I knew I needed to build a deck around Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , and it’s just as mean and effective as I’d hoped it would be. ;)

I had never seen Urborg Justice before! That’s a neat card, and I can see how it would essentially act as a single-target board wipe of sorts. I’ll have to keep that one in mind. As for Morbid Curiosity , the main impediment for me is that what I’m most likely to sacrifice with Reprocess are tokens, and Morbid Curiosity doesn’t interact as well with those, even if it is more efficient. Still something to consider. I’d love to see your decklist for Yawgmoth!

Great deck bro. Definitely a +1 from me.

I'd recommend Urborg Justice and Morbid Curiosity in place of a couple of your instants and sorceries. They're both reasonably priced and more efficient than Reprocess and any of your 2 Mana kill spells. Most of the time whenever I play Urborg in my Yawgmoth deck, it wipes one players board since I'm sacrificing so many creatures. Plus it's an instant which is very valuable.

If I have a Spark Double that's a copy of Lazotep Reaver on the battlefield and I cast Morbid Curiosity sacrificing the Spark Double, which CMC does the Morbid Curiosity "read"? That is, would I draw 2 or 3 cards?

Hey dude I love this deck. Definitely a +1 from me! It's refreshing to see a dragon deck that's not 5 colors. Recursion is one of my favorite mechanics in Magic. I'm a very seasoned Magic player and I can't express to you how much I love Scroll Rack It would be a great addition. 2 other cards for draw that I absolutely love and that I think are completely underated are Morbid Curiosity and Sanguimancy Also for another way to blink your commander, I'd recommend Conjurer's Closet Last card that I want to mention that is neat, but maybe not a necessary include is Cryptic Gateway

Gofralighto on Licia, First Sword of the Mardu {Primer}

Normally you'd be right, but because Licia, Sanguine Tribune is a CMC 8 creature, Morbid Curiosity draws us 8 cards off 3 mana compared to spells like Night's Whisper . This isn't a voltron strategy deck so I don't mind sacrificing Licia as she works more like a utility commander in this deck and it's easy to get her back on the field anyway.

Caltrops with Sydri, Galvanic Genius 's second ability could be a lot of fun though you do have to be careful because your own creatures will get pinged when they attack.

Commander's Sphere is an upgrade over Manalith as your commander can recycle the Sphere for a slow draw engine. Provides some redundancy with the Strix.

For other sac effects you could look at Morbid Curiosity , Costly Plunder , Reprocess , Reshape , and Syndicate Trafficker

Another artifact creature that begs to be recurred is Meteor Golem

And Aminatou, the Fateshifter is another blink effect on stick to keep you commander getting value from artifacts in the graveyard or just blinking ones in play.
