Ohran Frostfang Discussion

Here's my list if you're curious: Bruse Tana Boorish Bloodsower
That said, I definitely recommend these cards: Sigil of the Nayan Gods, Hope Against Hope, Cathars' Crusade, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Betrothed of Fire, Thallid Germinator, Song of Freyalise, Cryptolith Rite, Druids' Repository, Utopia Mycon, Fungal Plots, Shamanic Revelation, Ohran Frostfang

+1 cuz Tana is best girl. You might like these: Bravado, Ivy Lane Denizen, Thallid Germinator, Betrothed of Fire, Hunter's Prowess, Might of the Masses, Ohran Frostfang, Keeper of Fables, Impact Tremors, Song of Freyalise, Utopia Mycon
Also I'd highly recommend pairing her with Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. A Bravado effect + double strike on Tana gets interesting REAL FAST! Here's my list if you're interested: Bruse Tana, Boorish Bloodsower

IzmAYAYA: If you cast a removal spell on Yawgmoth, yes, I can still try to combo with him in response. I've won in response to removal before. However, it means I have to win without sorcery speed cards, which is possible but harder (usually involving some janky combination of Vampiric Tutor, Chord of Calling, Noxious Revival, Crop Rotation, etc). Once I have something like Ivy Lane Denizen on battlefield, though, my Yawgmoth combos become almost impervious to removal (since I can just start a second iteration of the combo in response to your removal). I hope that answers your question! (Also, I can dig and try to find Veil of Summer and/or Heroic Intervention to counteract your removal.)
cleandeceit: Mikaeus wasn't doing enough. He got a lot less good when I removed Defense of the Heart. I am not a fan of Grismold here at all, sorry. He makes it impossible for Hapatra to connect, gives opponents things to sacrifice, et cetera. This isn't 100% a Yawgmoth combo deck; I do still use aggro as my backup plan, or to win with things like Craterhoof Behemoth. Moreover, the many snakes from Soul Snuffers increases the power of Gaea's Cradle, Ohran Frostfang, Skullclamp, Earthcraft, et cetera. Grismold does this job much less effectively, and generally fits my gameplan less well: I'd prefer the one huge "burst" of creatures. OptimalGreen is completely correct -- if I orient my whole deck towards Yawgmoth, I'm dead in the water if he gets exiled, etc.

Love this! Tana and Bruse are my favorite pairing. When I built them they quickly became my fave deck. Here's my list if you want to check it out: Bruse Tana Boorish Bloodsower. I also built a super-budget (sub $50) version.
I definitely concur with Braingamer, Bravado and its ilk (Sigil of the Nayan Gods, Hope Against Hope, Mantle of Leadership, Betrothed of Fire, Eidolon of Countless Battles) are extremely powerful with this duo. I have an explanation of how these work on my deck page but in short, they make Tana grow exponentially bigger every time she hits, and she hits twice per turn thanks to Bruse. Easy commander damage!
You might consider these too: Thallid Germinator, Sunbond, Goldnight Commander, Hunter's Insight, Rishkar's Expertise, Ohran Frostfang, Skullclamp, Seize the Day, Cryptolith Rite, Song of Freyalise, Druids' Repository

For your consideration:
Card Draw / Tutor:
IMO, with no tutors or card draw like Harmonize you need to dig deep to find answers on the board. These should help you find the card you need.
Since the mana isn't restricted to just casting creatures use that mana to help make your board big. Monstrous and firebreathing effects are another area to investigate. Steel Hellkite even helps clear the board of what ails you.
End the game with these.
Gruul Ragebeast allows you to remove trouble creatures, see also Thorn Mammoth and Apex Altisaur. Primal Surge isn't a creature but basically says place your deck on the field. Ruric Thar will never punish you and allows aerial blocking.

Hey, with this much equipment consider cards that have good interaction with equipment?
- Sigarda's Aid: flash for equipment and equip for free when equipment ETB.
- Open the Armory: tutor for an equipment.
- Mother of Runes: repeatable protection for Rafiq from targeted removal, in combat or even make him unblockable in combat.
Budget lands to consider adding:
Cards that trigger an ability when you do combat damage to a player trigger that ability twice with double strike if the creature isn't blocked. This is powerful with draw effects.
Ramp that's creatures can also give you a body to equip to.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Simic Guildgate
- Graypelt Refuge
- Tranquil Cove
- Dakra Mystic
- Fog Bank
- Guardians of Akrasa
- Peregrine Drake
- Dictate of Kruphix
- Ordeal of Nylea
- Rites of Flourishing
- Holy Day
- Blunt the Assault
- Mace of the Valiant
- Mask of Avacyn
Good luck with your deck.

Love this deck. Definitely a +1 from me. I love the idea and the uniqueness of it.
It seems like the stars of the show are the Nephilem. That being said, I'd recommend more creature tutors that can out them into play like Tooth and Nail, Green Sun's Zenith,Chord of Calling, Eldritch Evolution, Neoform, and Wild Pair.
All the kindred cards as well as the banner will help you multiply those Myr as well as gain value off of them before you can land a couple Nephilem!
