Yawg Daddy **PRIMER** [Heavily Play Tested]

Commander / EDH Aristocrats Combo Mono-Black Primer Suicide Black Tokens



Yawgmoth, Thran Physician

and his house of horrors

Welcome to the heavily play tested and my favorite form, of my Yawg Daddy deck. Forget about having friends. Forget about sitting around for a friendly game of Magic The Gathering. No! You will be hated out. You will be resilient though. You ultimately will sit at the table with less friends, than you started with.

What makes my Yawgmoth different than the other ones on tapped out? They focus on his card draw potential and he is a major part of their ability to win. This deck sees Yawgmoth as the coup de gras. He isn't necessary, but he is great to have on board when we are going off, which is why he is in the command zone.

This deck is not at maximum misery potential, but it is at enough to survive in almost any meta. I've played this deck at quite a few game shops in several states now. I will say this. It doesn't do cute things. It does horrible dreadful things. Which is why I love it so much. I hope you enjoy playing it as much I do.

Why Play Yawgmoth Show

Opening Hand Show

No Hand 4 U
Ult Liliana, Defiant Necromancer then cast and sac Mindslicer. You keep sacing Mindslicer after the draw phase of each opponent. Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Vilis, Broker of Blood can break parity by drawing us cards.

No Mana 4 U
Contamination and Bitterblossom. Bitterblossom will give you a creature to sac to Contamination every upkeep. This will not fully lock out most opponents, but it will seriously hamper their game plans. I've literally had tables scoop when the consensus was that nobody could do anything about it.

The wincons are simple. Take the aristocrats win, through undying and pinging from sacrifice or infect your way out. As a backup you can win via Insidious Dreams or storm your way out with Bolas's Citadel + Aetherflux Reservoir. This deck has many lines of play, to achieve that objective. I hope you enjoy winning with it, as much as I do.

This deck tech is quite spicy. We are not talking jalapeno spicy. We are talking ghost pepper spicy. Do not play this deck at a casual table or with people who are new to commander. This is for the tables that are trying to have fun, but win above that. It is not a competitive deck nor is it a competitive commander. It is an extremely strong deck for a table of highly tuned and optimized decks.

Some may ask why Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is CMC 0. It's because the card is to prevent mill and reshuffle the graveyard on discard.

As a note to the viewer, this is the base of my deck. I am constantly testing out cards and swaps, before I make an official update to the deck, as a semi-permanent addition. Once, I am satisfied that a card is not preforming and I have found a good replacement, I will make an update to the list.

Here is a $200ish budget version of the deck. Enjoy!!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my sadistic creation. I appreciate the comments and suggestions.
