Yarok, the Desecrated Discussion

DeinoStinkus on Has anybody played Judge’s Tower?

1 day ago

I definitely don't think it's for me, I'd... I'd commit concede after the third Yarok, the Desecrated entered the battlefield. Actually, Yarok would be good in the format, I think...

DeinoStinkus on Golos, the "I dunno what I'm doing here"

In love with this deck! I love Golos. +1.

P.S. Your Yarok is way better than mine: Yarok, the Desecrated

The_Big_Elf What makes the deck work is not only a large number of combos, but also having lots of cards that synergize with Yarok, the Desecrated. Rampaging Baloths and Yarok make double beast tokens. Ravenous Chupacabra and yarok lets me kill 2 creatures. Mulldrifter and yarok lets me draw 4 cards. Even without synergy, those cards have objective power and can stand alone in case Yarok is debilitated, giving me more options during games.

Blue Sun's Zenith and Laboratory Maniac are good win cons, but they are only effective as win cons. Without the infinite mana engines, they don't synergize with yarok and are either mediocre/dead cards in hand.

The bounce land combo is difficult to justify because bounce lands are meant to "ramp" you early game. Double their effects with Yarok sets you very far back mana wise and is only beneficial if I have a landfall card. Perhaps its something to put in another deck as any deck with Blue and Green can play the combo regardless of other synergies.

Seshiro, that's true. There really isn't a good way to phrase it, although "As ~ enters the battlefield" would at least not be copied by Panharmonicon, Yarok, the Desecrated, etc.

DeinoStinkus on Longest Turns?

2 weeks ago

Ramble the other way to do it is to use tutors.

One day I was playtesting Yennett and took two turns in a row that together lasted about 30 minutes.

My Yarok deck once did a stack overload that was a headache to figure out. The scenario was: Yarok, the Desecrated, a Spark Double version of Yarok, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, and an Evolution Sage. I played Solemn Simulacrum.

After that, it was time for Prime Speaker Vannifar...

DeinoStinkus on Altered Sleeves

Are the ones seen on the site the only ones?

These are cool; don't think I'd get any, I usually unborder my cards with Sharpie, as in Yarok, the Desecrated.

I love them though! Not a huge fan of the meme Gonti.

DeinoStinkus on Should I Add the Filter ...

2 weeks ago

enpc I have to respectfully disagree with you here. For a lot of players, especially those who don't have hundreds of dollars every month to spend on magic, it can be very difficult to keep decks different. Saying "should I add XYZ to my decks" is essentially the same as saying "should I add XYZ to my collection". For example, almost half the nonland cards in my Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck are shared by my Yarok, the Desecrated deck. Although it is a different format, it's much the same question.

DeinoStinkus on Alter not working

Yarok, the Desecrated

It works, although the glare is very noticeable. Guess I just needed to refresh.
