I own a deck similar to this except it was with The Scorpion God but the deck plays exactly the same as this one. Control the board with -1/-1 counters. I run Blowfly Infestation + Nest of Scarabs to go infinite on draw or kill with Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat. So my version tends to run more of a combo deck style. I can win with infect but its not the focus so it doesnt happen often.

Thoughts on updating? I'm working on a list now using The Ozolith and Everlasting Torment.

I don't know if I should go heavy with dmgremoval and Soul-Scar Mage or combo out.

I'm also thinking Utopia Sprawl for ramp but Bloodbraid Elf would be interesting.

Black Sun's Zenith and Nest of Scarabs seems insane but I'm also interested in that new The Meathook Massacre

Ahhh, that makes sense. Well, I don’t THINK Blight Mound or Nest of Scarabs goes infinite without undying creatures, so those may still be good options.

Cauldron of Souls is also a lot of fun, and avoids the clause going infinite since it’s persist, instead of undying. Even with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed it only guarantees some extra returns, rather than infinite returns.

Hey man, i notice you don’t have any undying creatures. These are the BEST creatures with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as hexan just slap them with a -1/-1 counter to reset them.

Butcher Ghoul , Sightless Ghoul , and Treacherous Pit-Dweller are great and could replace some of your other token creators. Or run big daddy Mikaeus, the Unhallowed to give anything undying. Gray Merchant of Asphodel with undying, and yawgmoth reseting it? You just won.

Cards like Blight Mound , and Nest of Scarabs also pop off hard with yawgmoth.

@Nawg, try Concordant Crossroads + Cryptolith Rite .

@Daedalus19876, I want to suggest replacing Seshiro the Anointed with Blex, Vexing Pest  Flip and here is why. 1st, if pulling a combo with Yawgmoth via an anthem effect, Blex has an advantage in that he is only 3cmc rather than 6cmc. 2nd, Blex will work with Nest of Scarabs where Seshiro does not. 3rd, when looking for card draw, Search for Blex is faster and more flexible. Getting to see 5 cards for 4 mana is really efficient, especially when the cards you dont choose to pay life for go to the graveyard anyway, making it possible to recur them later. In the majority of cases, this is going to be a much better way to put cards in your hand, rather than paying six and having to get through with combat damage.
