Yahenni, Undying Partisan Discussion

That's a really solid deck, congratulations!

I especially like the inclusion of Psychatog. It seems highly synergistic with the deck's strategy.

A few considerations:

Haste is incredibly important. What's even more important is the fact that its enabler has as low of a CMC as possible. For this reason, although Yahenni, Undying Partisan could have some synergy with the deck if you are not including too many looting effects, I think you would be better off with a Nether Traitor or, even better, a Gingerbrute. Being 1 or 2 mana cheaper means you can transition from them to something else with ease. On top of that, they also provide evasion.

Nighthowler seems to me a little too situational and unreliable. Your graveyard shouldn't be too stocked with creatures, as it would be risky. As regards your opponents', it's too dependent on the matchup.

As regards the Laboratory Maniac package, I would rather go for Demonic Consultation and Tainted Pact instead of Mirror-Mad Phantasm and Mesmeric Orb. It seems faster and more reliable.

Good job and keep your list up to date!

Hey Squirrel_of_War, thank you for checking my list and making suggestions. The Lack of free sac outlets will be diminished in the Future. I’ve bought an Phyrexian Altar, Goblin Bombardment and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I dont want to abuse dockside like i dont want to win with Revel in Riches. I‘m a Bit affraid of playing without the Signets but lets See how it turns out. Sadly the Corona Virus stops our playgroup meeting this saturday :/

Hope you See all alright!

One of the most obvious combos is Vizier of Remedies + Murderous Redcap + any sac outlet. (You can have Cathars' Crusade or Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit instead of Vizier of Remedies for the combo) Unless disrupted, this combo deals infinite damage to any number of players/ creatures. How the combo works:

Step 1. Sacrifice Murderous Redcap

Step 2. Persist Triggers and Murderous Redcap is back

Step 3. Murderous Redcap trigger is put on the stack

Step 4. Vizier of Remedies triggers - resolve this one first

Step 5. Murderous Redcap deals damage

Rinse and repeat.

Note about this combo - if your sac outlet is Altar of Dementia you can mill one player while killing another one. Other sac maybe Ashnod's Altar, Blasting Station, Phyrexian Altar, Phyrexian Tower, Goblin Bombardment, Yahenni, Undying Partisan

Yea, if you include a sacrifice outlet, such as Viscera Seer, Yahenni, Undying Partisan or an altar of some sort, being phyrexian, ashnod's, or of dementia, you can infinite loop with Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit or mimic

Hey I_TappedWrong, thank you for the upvote and your suggestion of Mad Ratter. This is a real good Token Machine. As far as i have tested my deck in draw simulators i have enough ramp to possibly cut one card for Mad Ratter. At this Weekend i can finally test the deck in our Playgroup and hopefully i can give you an answer about the impact of Mad Ratter.

About your deck: Your way to build Korvold seems a really fun alternative to mine. You have many powerhouses i got extra edh-decks like Omnath, Locus of Rage or Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I maybe take some of your free sac outlets to my maybeboard, because i think my deck is lacking those.

bradtheimpaler13, thanks for the view and for the suggestions.

Contamination is dirty, I love it.. Definitely going to be an add.. I find I have enough extra creatures.. short of a board wipe, i should be good to keep it up for a while.

I also do want to get rid of a few of the higher CMC cards. So thinking if I dump Scourge of Nel Toth, Sepulchral Primordial, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan (although he is not expensive, he has just never done anything for me), I should be add all three of those.... drop CMC for CMC..

Some quick 2 cents on other entries:

TypicalTimmy Show

Boza Show

As for my own suggestion on Hunt, I'm sitting on two versions and would like some feedback on the concept if possible before deciding a final route. I'll note which version will be the main entry until I change my mind or the challenge ends - when is that btw dbpunk?

Mechanic Show

Examples for model 1 Show

At the moment I will not make examples on the second variant.
