Yarok, the Desecrated Discussion
2 days ago
Thanks for the comment! You may also want to check out Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver from Innistrad Midnight Hunt as another option for Dimir zombie commanders. It'd be a bit less graveyard and a bit more zombie tribal, though. Gisa and Geralf are cool, too, though! I like how they're more "fair" when compared to newer "autopilot" commanders like Korvold, Fae-Cursed King and Yarok, the Desecrated.
Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are pretty good ideas. Sadly, I don't own a Pact and I only have one or two Dictates, and they're all seeing use in other decks. I've added them to the maybeboard for now. Havengul Lich is pretty sweet! I'd probably just need it for reanimating because I don't have much in the way of activated abilities that it could gain. I don't think I'd use Whip of Erebos in this deck due to it's exile clause. The stuff I'd want to reanimate with it... I'd want to reanimate again later if possible. Can't do that if they get exiled. :\

Copying the ability is not activating the ability (or triggering it, for cards like say Dramatic Finale). You can copy these abilities just fine.

Okay, I'm open for discussion. Could you please give me an example of an ETB deck that's not Yarok, the Desecrated Commander or Blink? Every color has cards with abilities that trigger when they or something else enters, and I feel like "a deck built around permanents with abilities that trigger upon entering the battlefield" is very broad, almost on par with "a deck built around creatures attacking."
Cheerios, maybe. So what do Cheerios and Yarok EDH have in common?

Questionable includes in this deck. For example, why run Untamed Wilds when there’s nature’s lore or three vists. If you don’t have the duals, consider cultivate or rampant growth. Either or is strictly better although if you don’t, it’s fine. Belbe's Portal is too expensive to use. 8 mana to cheat out a one mana scarecrow seems mediocre. Also consider Yarok, the Desecrated or more cheap changelings.
However, I do like the artifact synergies in this deck. Using a artifact land seems cool!

brandonplaysmagic -- Thanks!! I always like to try and make things a little bit more interesting than having to play against Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, Yarok, the Desecrated, Kess, Dissident Mage and Golos, Tireless Pilgrim (RIP) decks all the time. Experimenting with lesser known commanders is so fun!
Diamanacle -- Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools is an amazing card and would be a fantastic Rakdos sacrifice commander. I don't have a Vial Smasher the Fierce but he seems super good, too! Exile cards always seem to cost a bit more, CMC-wise, which is why I opted for cheaper removal like Terminate or ones that could hit multiple types like Bedevil and Feed the Swarm. It does sound like a good, though. I'll add some to the maybeboard and see which ones I have laying around. As for tutors, they'd be great and I do have a one Demonic and Vampiric Tutor along with a Diabolic Intent in other decks. I was already debating adding them in, but... I have no idea what to cut. Suggestions?
As for copying this deck, have at it! If you end up posting it on here just mention me as an inspiration or something. I'd love to see it!

Appreciate the well thought out response, I know that took some time. Many of your suggestions were added, the ones on the "Maybe Board" are cards I don't own currently so they would likely be upgrades if I bought.
You make valid points for Castle Locthwain and Westvale Abbey Flip, I was just thinking late game card draw or a surprise late game flying, lifelink, indestructible, haste; removed the castle as card draw really doesn't seem to be too much of an issue. The same for benching Anticipate.
I didn't have most of the cards for the extra land ramp you suggested but added what I could and others to the Maybe Board. Can't believe I missed Command Tower lol.
The justification for keeping Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh is he is a dragon (theme deck for casual friends) and if he flips it is a distraction that needs to be addressed. Commit / Memory was for mill protection and since been added to the sideboard. Shadowspear was mainly there for the (1) remove hexproof and indestructible, which could be more of a sideboard item. Ramos, Dragon Engine is there for yet another mana source as my mana base is a little on the low side. Deathbringer Regent has moved to sideboard as well, he was added for opponents who crap out tokens and board whipe was needed. Amareth, the Lustrous is in currently for card draw until I purchase something from my maybe board.

I don't really have a favorite commander, but the one I've had the most fun with is Yarok, the Desecrated...
Yarok, Mirebrood Warden

Whenever an ability of a nontoken permanent you control triggers as it enters the battlefield, create a token that is a copy of that permanent
It's very interesting to see everyone's response to this challenge, so I'll say do it again.
