Urborg Justice Discussion

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!

+1 for the background art.

I recommend adding more Wincons and consistent ways to draw into them.

Some suggestions to consider:

Possible Wincons

Rings of Brighthearth + Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith to generate infinite mana, which you can pump into Slimefoot. With a sac outlet in play, it's basically game over.

Finding the Combo Pieces

Green grants you access to awesome creature tutors while Black basically fetches anything and everything. You may wish to consider some of the following tutors:

Green Sun's Zenith - Turn 1 Dryad Arbor ramps you too!

Chord of Calling - Tons of shenanigans you can do with this card. Fetching Craterhoof Behemoth during Combat to buff your creatures, bringing in Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat or Falkenrath Noble in response to a board wipe, etc.

Survival of the Fittest - Repeatable creature tutor. Slightly pricey though.

Demonic Tutor - One of the best tutors Black has to offer!

Dimir Machinations - And the other Transmute cards, depending on the CMC of your combo pieces. Machinations seems like a good fit since Ashnod's Altar, Rings of Brighthearth, Basalt Monolith are all 3 drops.

Keeping the Board in Check

Some creature removals to keep you alive while you gather the combo pieces.

Grave Pact - Way better than Butcher of Malakir, despite the in its casting cost, but you're a 2 color deck so it shouldn't be too difficult.

Urborg Justice - Nice little combat trick you can hold in your hand, then say to your opponents "I Die, You Die!"

Living Death - Always fun to see this resolve when we mess with the living and the underworld.

Other Utility Cards

Tortured Existence - Good recursion to bring back the dead and reuse their ETB effects, etc.

Mana Reflection or Zendikar Resurgent if you're keen to explore mana doublers. Their CMC is on the high side though. If you want to make the deck more fast paced, then perhaps they ain't a good fit.

Oh My god. While Researching Urborg's History, I found Urborg Justice!! 2-black payback for killing one of your creatures (and you might get more than one Toshi trigger off one spell!). Maybe it's bad in your meta but in mine, there's a fist full of Ulamogs and Swiftfoot Boots that make targeted removal sometimes nullified. It's possible with your targeted exile, Edict, and Geth's, this is just redundancy, but I saw the card and thought of you :P

Also, Mirari might be considered "meh," but could add value in surplus mana times. (Also Pictured in Cabal Coffers for flavor wins)
