Have you considered running Urborg Justice? An instant speed Grave Pact-like effect can really catch your opponents off guard. Since they don't see it coming, they are much more likely to commit to their board.

If you do end up running it, I would try replacing it with one of your more conditional spot removals like Grasp of Darkness, Dismember, Defile, etc. Good luck!

Sweet list! I've never played Mardu aristocrats but it seems like a lot of fun :)

If you tend to have a lot of other creature-focused decks in your play group, Urborg Justice seems like it could be an interesting card to consider.The instant Grave Pact-like effect might catch people really off-guard!

If you are in the market for more burst card-draw, Liliana's Standard Bearer might get you a nice lump of cards too

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.

Depending on your play group, I'd say that for the 1 cmc more, Zendikar Resurgent's card draw for playing creatures, especially in a deck with 34, is incredible value. You get twice as much mana AND your creatures are replacing themselves with new spells to play.

For Meren of Clan Nel Toth, I personally would cut Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger... But that's because I think he's a bit of an ass hole hahaha. As a more obvious value exchange, I'd say Gleancrawler as Meren gives you a free creature returned to the battlefield (cheating for big ETBs and expensive creatures) every turn and is 4 cheaper. Maybe Ingot Chewer, however Meren makes cards like that good - so I'd stick by trying a trade with Gleancrawler.

I hear you with the Dictate vs. Grave Pact, especially if that's what your meta calls for. I don't always have a quick free sac outlet out, but if I know I can play one the next turn "keeping that mana up" isn't really "keeping it up", it's just as if you played it your turn but nobody knows about it - better yet, they will stay away from you that cycle cause they think you have some 5cmc response up your sleeve, then you play it right before your next turn to feed Kresh for an attack they didn't see coming. And as per a comparison to Urborg Justice, I think they would only be similar in 1vs.1 games, except Dictate of Erebos sticks around, a repeatable Justice for 3cmc more... that hits all your opponents, which might make or break a game for someone as hungry as Kresh. However, Urborg Justice is still a fantastic card, that I forgot about, so thanks for the reminder :). I have a token based Kresh I'm building which that'll be going in.

I do feel Dictate of Erebos, in this context, is better than Shattergang Brothers due to the free effect that also discourages people from removing your creatures, even when you don't have mana up. I think the brothers are better in a deck that doesn't have the high mana curve you mentioned, and that also makes token artifacts and creatures so you have enough to sac where your opponents can't pick and choose so easily when you can only afford triggering it 2x and they have 5 or more options to sac. But that's just my opinion based on my meta.

God call on the mana doubler. I have wanted to put a doubler into the deck for some time now. I do like Zendikar Resurgent because of the additional draw it provides. Maybe this or the 1cmc lower Mana Reflection.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth looks good, but what should I cut for it?

I never had any issues in this deck with getting the 3 black mana for my Grave Pact. I have found that, at least in my meta, Dictate of Erebos' flash ability isn't all that helpful. The decks high curve usually won't let me keep up 5 mana for flashing Dictate of Erebos anyway and I usually only play Grave Pact when I have a free sac outlet like Viscera Seer and thus can get immediate value out of it. If I wanted to play a "surprise Grave Pact" then I guess I'd play Urborg Justice which costs only 2 black mana to cast.

A bit obscure and one use but a mini-blowout like Dictate/Pact is Urborg Justice

You can Isochron Scepter it though!
