Yosei, the Morning Star occurrence in decks from the last year

Yosei, the Morning Star Discussion

This deck is hilarious, I love it.

Cards to consider:

Yosei, the Morning Star: Just incredible with your Emeria

Skyclave Apparition seems a pretty good addition.

Myojin of Cleansing Fire for a little more removal.

Mirror Entity as a finisher?

How about Eerie Interlude to protect any amount of your own creatures?

Nikko-Onna because why not?

Reveillark and Vesperlark seem like great additions. Same goes for Sun Titan.

I really like entirely wack Commanders.

Today's epiphany for a fun General to build around was Yosei, the Morning Star. I'm sure we've all had that one Yosei player in our playgroup (sarcasm: never seen this guy in the command zone ever), and I want to become that player. My plan for the deck is: tap everyone's lands and rocks down by recurring Yosei for just long enough to combo off with a Heliod, Sun-Crowned, or Rings of Brighthearth.

The help I'm looking for is as follows--card draw, recursion, win-cons, and random tidbits of lovely information regarding how strained my life is to want to build a mono-white commander deck (maybe not that last one but go for it if you're feeling the vibes)

I know I just made a forum for help with a deck, but no one else is posting anything (sad face) so I thought I'd just fill the void now.

Every time I see Yosei, the Morning Star I think of that one 90's song - Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Yosei that we've got nothing in common No common ground to start from And we're falling apart

On a more serious note - Excellent Primer. Really enjoyed reading it. I garnered several insights to help with my own deck construction. I recently picked up a copy of the precon from a friend who was getting out of magic and had the original deck pretty much untouched, and I seem to be following a similar trajectory to you. So far, I've barely done anything to it, aside from polish a few of the rough edges and it's already one of my favorite decks.

The part regarding Wasitora made me laugh! : "She almost never gets to create cute tokens (which, to be clear, is the main reason to play Wasitora)"

Doombeard1984, I think the rules change for "entering the graveyard" also being able to trigger in the command zone is a simple, yet elegant change that only serves to promote and improve the health of EDH/Commander. That simple change has empowered so many lower tier commanders - and has changed up the meta. I'm excited to see the nightmare that will be Yosei, the Morning Star stax or Elenda, the Dusk Rose being able to fire off with more consistency and with better tools at it's disposal. Speaking of Elenda, have you seen that crazy price spike of hers? According to MTGoldfish she went up 17%

The best possible reanimate targets in your colors are Vilis, Broker of Blood and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is not far behind as a bit of a board wipe and a buff to your other creatures, but doesn't give card advantage like the others to help leverage the win. All 3 of these see play in reanimator decks in cEDH even. If you are looking for something spicy that isn't highly played though, Yosei, the Morning Star can be reanimated and used turn after turn as a lockdown piece if you are so inclined.
