Yawgmoth, Thran Physician Discussion

Lowly_Hollow on cEDH Meren stax and Combo

6 days ago

I've got a different Protean Hulk line. Hulk grabs Phyrexian Delver and Viscera Seer . Delver returns Hulk, Seer sacs hulk to grab Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . Seer sacs Delver, Delver returns with undead and returns Hulk, Seer sacs hulk to grab Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Blood Artist , Hulk returns with undead. Yawgmoth sacs Blood Artist and puts a -1/-1 counter on Hulk (removing the +1/+1 counter), Blood Artist returns with a +1/+1. Yawgmoth sacs Hulk and puts a -1/-1 counter on Blood Artist. Repeat for infinite damage, all your 6-cmc creatures on the battlefield, and infinite card draw. It can be tweaked to add some sort of protection with Faceless Butcher . You might should include a card that can shuffle your graveyard into your library depending on the number of opponents because yawgmoth forces you to draw, or you could grab another combo with the undying hulk tutors instead of using Yawgmoth's ability to finish the job. You could tutor for a persist creature.

I have been AFK testing this new variant of Mardu Pyromancer and I think I have the ratios and inclusions that bring back that old familiar feeling of Mardu Pyromancer! I want to address some of the previous comments that I have now archived. Everything here on is brand spanking new!

JacenSolo29 I want to address some of the suggestions you made. As you can see, I actually did include one of them, so thank you for the suggestion! Kaya's Guile is a magnificent midrange/control inclusion that just fits perfectly in the sideboard against grave decks (few and far between, but still existent) and against burn for the life gain, edict/sacrifice effect, and chump blocking token. I usually bring it in in place of Kolaghan's Command or Bedlam Reveler for extra sustain. Honestly, a perfect inclusion for Mardu Pyromancer that just screams: "I do Orzhov things"! As for Monastery Mentor , it is always on my radar. I want it to work, but it just seems like an extra Young Pyromancer and always feels a turn late. I want to keep working on it, but it just doesn't fit, especially with being a splash color in the overall theme of the deck, it needs more testing.

YamishiTheWickedOne I want to try to address all your previous comments, that are under the first "update" tab. First, Seasoned Pyromancer is straight GAS. Literally, the nuts and the perfect breath of life that the deck needed to remain competitive. It's so good, that I've even seen it in Jund and Grixis Control decks as a sideboard option for card draw. Honestly, we need the full 4 copies and I would never EVER side out any of them!

YamishiTheWickedOne I tried Dreadhorde Arcanist , and it works well if you max out on every 1 cmc drop, like Inquisition of Kozilek , Thoughtseize , Fatal Push , and Path to Exile . However, since Faithless Looting got the ban axe, we need Ransack the Lab for card draw and it is 2 cmc and doesn't fit well with Dreadhorde Arcanist . It's an honest maybeboard card, but with the current build, it doesn't work.

YamishiTheWickedOne Blood Moon delays the inevitable against big mana decks. We need proactive choices that don't stall, like Fulminator Mage , Molten Rain , or Pillage . I've opted for Pillage so as to also kick some artifact behind, like Tron's plethora of artifacts and the occasional Affinity, since we can also destroy their manlands. Also, having sorcery spells help for all our creatures to trigger some type of additional VALUE advantage, minus Hazoret the Fervent .

YamishiTheWickedOne as for Yawgmoth, Thran Physician ... I don't like it, personally... it feels very "win-more" and doesn't work with the consistent in all the cmc of the cards. Besides, Plague Engineer literally takes a Phyrexian dump all over Human and other tribal decks. Yawgmoth, Thran Physician might need more testing, but I have not been excited to play him on turn 4 compared to other cards and combinations. Maybe one day he will be "emergency ban worthy" (really funny reference since I also was a Yugioh player before MtG), but as for now, he's "meh".

Thank you all for being so interested in the build and keeping the comment section alive and thriving! I appreciate the support and the enthusiasm! Here's to the future of Mardu Pyromancer!

LuketheCool Thanks for the upvote! Instead of looking at Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as the finisher threat, look at him as a massive value machine. He rarely kills anyone himself. Instead, he's like a boardwipe strapped to a Yawgmoth's Bargain for . The deck usually kills by a mix of token swarm and burn to the face, with flashback support for bolts and helixes from Chandra, Acolyte of Flame . The Yawgmoth+Chandra synergy is actually super important to the whole thing.

I've been tinkering with Mardu in modern since Dragons of Tarkir gave us Kolaghan's Command , and this is definitely the most durable iteration I've put together.

Errast on Korvold’s at it again

Hey there. I had a look at the decklist and while I like a lot of what you're doing here, I think there are a lot of cards worth considering for this list. I'll list the ones I think are best here, and give my reasons why below.

First off is Fires of Yavimaya and it's best friends Anger / Hammer of Purphoros . Three cards that are fantastic for this deck, as giving Korvold (and all his other friends) can be really important to get your engine rolling!

Second, I've got Goblin Bombardment , and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician . These two are pretty self-explanatory, they're by far the best sacrifice outlets you'll find, and go great in any deck that's looking to sac creatures for value.

Third are Blood for Bones , Meren of Clan Nel Toth , and Phyrexian Reclamation three recursion engines that in this deck, will ensure you can keep re-using important creatures, or so that you don't gas out before you hit your win conditions. Speaking of...

The last 2 cards I have written down are Garruk, Cursed Huntsman , and Tendershoot Dryad . While the least neccessary of the bunch, I would highly recommend adding these two, as they serve the dual purpose of being both win condition and creature generators.

So to round out our suggestions (desite my claims that Garruk and the dryad were our last), I would advise adding more basic Mountain s, especially if you intend to run Anger . The deck would likely run better, as the amount of tap lands youre running is just too high, and is likely clunkier than just throwing more Mountain s into the deck.

Well if you made it this far, then thanks for that and best of luck with your deck!

Fracastador2 on Vraska, Queen of the Children of the Corn

Heyo! I'm building a very similar deck to yours (it used to have a lot more eldrazi than it currently does, but there are still a few.) Carrion Court Just wanted to let you know that Ayara, First of Locthwain can only trigger on the ETBs of/sacrifice black creatures. She does not interact with your eldrazi scions/spawn/green eldrazi at all. You may know that, but without that interaction she seems underwhelming here. My list has a few options you might want to consider instead (some not exactly budget), but I don't think I know of any cards that perform her precise role well.

If you want card draw: Underworld Dreams Moldervine Reclamation Midnight Reaper Grim Haruspex Yawgmoth, Thran Physician Priest of Forgotten Gods are thoughts.

If you want life gain: Vindictive Vampire Falkenrath Noble Blood Artist Are a few options.

I'm not going to make any of those "official" suggestions as I don't know what your means are for acquiring cards.

Oathbreaker absolutely is a good kind of format for this deck! It's robust to a bunch of different enemy strategies and can adapt to situations. I love it!

I have yet to ever win meaningfully with Vraska's emblem. I've gotten it, but my opponents have already been already dead on board whenever I have. Good luck!

I've been playing my Slimefoot deck a lot lately, and ive found i really like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Liliana, Dreadhorde General , and Krav, the Unredeemed . They work quite nicely as draw engines that also provide threats on board
