If a permanent entering the battlefield causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.

Yarok, the Desecrated Discussion

See rule 10 here. https://mtgcommander.net/index.php/rules/

In commander specifically the assumption most random people will have when building decks based on the rules is that Wish effects like that just don't work.

So with Mastermind's Acquisition, the first effect works, the second doesn't.

To get the effect you seem to be looking for, multiple copies of Vorinclex, try Mirror Gallery, Mirror Box, Helm of the Host, and Rite of Replication.

Lithoform Engine, Rings of Brighthearth, and Yarok, the Desecrated can all be used to abuse things with Proliferate. With all those extra loyalty counters you'll be rolling in, the The Chain Veil seems like it belongs in here too. Especially since it gives all your walkers an extra activation, not just one.

Some other stuff to replace your wishes with would be Search for Glory, and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth. Those not only work for Vorinclex, but they will also get most of your Planeswalkers, Helm of the Host, and Lithoform Engine.

Also, Fist of Suns seems like a great combo with that commander.

^I know that pain. I have that same feeling with commanders like Korvold, Fae-Cursed King and Yarok, the Desecrated. They're just too... easy. Their decks seem to run on autopilot.

Yarok, the Desecrated + Omnath, Locus of Creation to cut out the Horde of Notions middleman and get roundly punched in the face.

On a more responsible note, Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca or Adrix and Nev, Twincasters + Sygg, River Guide would give the Bant Merfolk commander I think is sorely missing.

You may have noticed I've liked elementals. Anyhow....

What's the catch?

Morophon, the Boundless + Fist of Suns = All Elements in Hand Free-Cast

Morophon(Moro) + Fist of Suns(Fos)+ Yarok, the Desecrated/Panharmonicon(Double ETB) + AEthersnipe (Bounce) = Bounce all permanents, OR infinitely play any elemental spell on hand/field = enabling unlimited ETB effects.


Moro + Fos + Double ETB + Bounce + Risen Reef/Cloudkin Seer/Cavalier of Thorns = Draw/Mill all cards in deck for self mill. Note, not actually a wincon yet. Consider Jace, Wielder of Mysteries? Feels more win-more, though. Any of these milling processes will probably lead to the following loops:

Moro + Fos + Double ETB + Bounce + Foundation Breaker = I hate artifacts + enchantments, grr!

Moro + Fos + Double ETB + Bounce + Avenger of Zendikar/Scampering Scorcher = Infinite Plants or 1/1 hasty elementals

Moro + Fos + Double ETB + Bounce + Blasting Station/Omnath, Locus of the Roil/Warstorm Surge = Ping enemies to death

Moro + Fos + Double ETB + Muldrotha + Bounce = All Elements (and lands) in Hand + Graveyard Castable

General Gameplan:

Have a number of 4fun cascade cards to help cheat creatures + churn through the deck and get out expensive bodies. Horde of Notions acts as a great toolbox and helps set up some of these combos.

Thinking of: Yarok's Wavecrasher to provide another piece to enable the infinite loop.

zach3584 tinkered around with my version with the new set release! I'm finding Illusionist's Bracers to be too mana costly and it slows down development. Going to eventually add in Yarok, the Desecrated in for full ETB jank

Yeah. I could see Toxrill, the Corrosive being a commander that alot of people would dislike. Yarok, the Desecrated was certainly one that had me burnt out mostly because of popularity when I used to play online. Golos was another... It was common where I would play several games with 2 other Golos players (partially my fault for staying in that game). To some extent Esika, God of the Tree  Flip is filling that WUBRG goodstuff void that alot of people apparently like. I think Hasbro has figured out that WUBRG commanders are good for the bottom dollar. Not too surprising that they caught onto that, the manabase for a new WUBRG deck itself is $$.

I currently only play with my brothers at home with decks I have built, so my experience for this thread will come from my experience with Historic Brawl on Arena, which is close enough for the sake of this topic.

Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip is awful to play against. Chulane, Teller of Tales and Yarok, the Desecrated are equally unfun. I didn't really think much of it during VOW spoiler season but Toxrill, the Corrosive is quickly becoming a top "kill on sight" commander as well and although I've only played one game against it, I can see Hinata, Dawn-Crowned enter into this tier as well. Removal, protection and counterspells all cost one less? Ugh.

Sadly, Historic Brawl is largely these decks with a healthy dose of The First Sliver and Esika, God of the Tree  Flip and a decent amount of Halana and Alena, Partners. There's very little variety, it seems.

UltimateRoxas40 on Yarok, who let the lands out?!

Cool deck! Since you're running a lands-matter Yarok, the Desecrated, have you thought about Roil Elemental? Since your deck seems to be a high power level, stealing your opponents creatures doesn't seem too oppressive.

Rampaging Baloths is another good landfall card. Pretty easy to make a horde of Beasts to attack everyone with.
