Until end of turn, you may play cards from your graveyard.
If a card would be put into your graveyard from anywhere this turn, exile that card instead.

Yawgmoth's Will Discussion
3 days ago
MrNoodlesworth, I am still debating whether to keep Planar Void . I need to test this latest version more. The recursion cards I’m running for now are Buried Ruin , Volrath's Stronghold , and Yawgmoth's Will , plus tutors to find those cards. I don’t think the deck needs much more than this. Wiping my own graveyard was something I learned to adapt to with Planar Void , but being able to bring back a card every now and then is a minor plus. It doesn’t make or break the deck. Tergrid, God of Fright Flip still works as an alternative win-con on her own.

So, I personally would build from scratch. The amount you would cut from that deck being offered is substantial. Now, with some of the expensive stuff I have, you can consider some alternatives for sure. Gaea's Will is similar to Yawgmoth's Will but much more budget friendly, and the aforementioned Patriarch's Bidding is now cheap as chips. For tutoring, Diabolic Tutor , Beseech the Queen , Mastermind's Acquisition and Gamble are but some of the cheaper tutor cards you can use. Liliana Vess is also an option. There are many options, just be aware of either higher cost, or potential downside. Of course, our commander Sliver Overlord is a tutor himself, which is very useful. With interaction, well I went heavy on counter magic, but there are a plethora or removal type spells. Joy of being in 5 colours. Utter End , Beast Within , Vindicate , even you basic Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile offer you some interaction. I also like Akroma's Will as an alternative to Teferi's Protection . Can also double up as a win con. With the lands, whilst I do have a couple of OG duals and all the shocks, the bond lands (if your pod is 3 or 4) are all good. With fetches, you just need to make sure you have the land types on the card. Shocks are defo good. There was a couple lands in BFZ I think Canopy Vista that are fetchable, and in a pinch, triomes work. Otherwise, basics are ok too, but not ideal.

+1 I see you already had profane transfusion, my bad. Other good stuff cards to consider...
what is the point of altar of the brood?
Deliver Unto Evil - Choose: Bolas Citadel, Tutor, Boardwipe, Utility Spell... works with politics too. I've found it useful, as aside from ill gotten goods, yawgmoths will and (sort of ) Xiahou Dun the One Eyed, this is good, cheap recursion.
Feed the Swarm - Enchantment removal is key in black. Don't sleep on this, synergy with font of agonies
Mind Twist - Early ramp into this is BRUTAL. Bait counter spells for X=2 prior to casting your wincon. It only hits one person, but it is devastating (note, it says random).
Oubliette - With an updated ruling, you can really mess with opposing commanders.
Phyrexian Arena - Again, not needed, but its nice incremental advantage. I understand you have necro already among (some) other draw, so this may not be necessary. But from my understanding, you are dumping your hand pretty quickly so it might be worth considering.
Yawgmoth's Will - Or is it too expensive?
Buried Ruin - Recur bolas citadel, phyrexian alter or something else of value
Potential swap is Bubbling Muck in place of song of the dammed. Both ramp, although bubbling muck is symmetrical (note Urborg) so perhaps not. Nevertheless, worth mentioning.
I would cut scroll rack for an actual draw spell as you have no shuffling engines (aside from tutors) and it sucks to draw this without m(any) cards in hand.
I love cruel tutor myself, but I think you should swap it for another tutor Mastermind's Acquisition (aka diabolic tutor #2 or better depending on playgroup). You lose less life, you get the card in hand, and your commander can pay for it's mana cost if needed.
I'm surprised to see ad naseum in a deck whose avg cmc is 3.78. How has it worked (or not) for you? I can see you killing yourself too quickly given your commander. Would be best swapped for a different draw spell, tutor, many of the above, etc...
Would love to hear your own thoughts regarding your deck and my suggestions. What's your meta, like, power level, budget, etc...

Hey Rilakai, +1 :)
Here's a Kethis deck I put together that turned out to be crazy fun: Superfrens Tokens/Reanimator. I wanted to play only planeswalkers that made tokens. Because Kethis, the Hidden Hand is basically Yawgmoth's Will / Underworld Breach , I found cards like Oath of Druids that could turbo self-mill, kind of like Hermit Druid . Primevals' Glorious Rebirth and Urza's Ruinous Blast became my go-to wincons. Planewide Celebration is probably another.
I've played vs. several Atraxa decks and they're usually very similar. Often she plays as archenemy and often relies on 10+ mana combo wins (like Teferi + Chainveil). What I liked about Kethis was that I didn't care if my planeswalkers died.
Imo, go beyond "planeswalkers" as a theme and narrow your focus to #tokens, #+1/+1 counters, etc. This lets you play around weaker planeswalkers, making your deck less threatening and more versatile and unique.

Bolas's Citadel could be a great lategame finisher. An awesome card for Chainer in general is Shaman's Trance . It has no synergy with your minotaurs, but the possibility of Sterling a creature with Chainer and casually negating Yawgmoth's Will / Underworld Breach and any flashback shenanigans is a powerful option.

To be fair, I never said I was good at stax, only like it and trying to overcome a lock. Speaking of locks, I notice your contamination bitterblossom lock. Have you thought of adding additional redundancy in the form of Infernal Darkness ? It doesn't need a token unlike contamination.
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - If you got $ and want to improve coffers
snow covered swamps can allow you to swap mutilate for Dead of Winter for slightly more efficiency given you aren't running urborg to fuel mutilate.
Vona's Hunger or Liliana's Triumph - How often do you find yourself "ascending?"
Mind Twist - Only hits one opponent, but early ramp into this can be devastating. Also works as countermagic bait. for X on 1-2.
Yawgmoth's Will - I'm assuming you would have added chains and this given budget, what's the budget per card?
Cabal Stronghold for a stax deck seems slow, I would swap in a Blast Zone (to deal with artifact and enchantments) or another utility land such as deserted temple or thespian's stage to utilize coffers, copy opposing utility lands, or politic opponents.

The short answer really just is: powerful effects like extra turn’s, Yawgmoth's Will , and similar effects are already so powerful that abusing them any more then that makes them un-fun / broken. Shahrazad , is annoying on its own, but when copied 3+ times it’s more than van worthy. When Time Walk was printed 30+ years ago, an extra turn to play Rock Hydra wasn’t a huge problem, but now cards like Approach of the Second Sun / Isochron Scepter / (insert most modern mythic cards) make that just not feasible. If players can abuse and effect, they will Oko, Thief of Crowns , if they don’t shuffle/ exile themselves they will warp formats.
