Quote from Goodking »In what way does it warp draft or cube construction?
Quote from JuiceBOX »If he isn't an engine for something, then I don't want him for occasional, semi-random, activations. I would rather run more powerful 4 drops that have more narrow application when compared to Yawg.
If he is supposed to be an engine for something, then I don't want him in 360, I want him in something larger.
Quote from FlossingSheep »Why does he have to be an engine for something? Drawing a card and full-to-partial removal on the same ability just seems like an engine to win games. Do you not cube with token generators?
Quote from FlossingSheep »Respectfully, I think you may be overthinking things in this case. But I also acknowledge that you dont actually need any reason to keep a card from your cube, so, do you my man.
Quote from LucidVision »I think this card is excellent in a sacrifice archetype, a super fun card overall and am slamming it into my cube.
However, I think people who don't support aristocrats AND run smaller powered cubes will be disappointed if they expect much from him.
He requires considerable setup before he becomes a power house, and if your format has a lot of decks that go way over the top, grindy decks that support him may not be well suited to that format.
In that kind of format I'd want my black agro decks to disrupt the opponents mana base/hand and/or kill fast as possible. Yawgmoth does neither.
IE he'd be stone unplayable in the MTGO vintage cube.
The more creature heavy and slower the format, the better. Against a green or white creature deck, yawgmoth seems utterly absurd.
Quote from NotScottMescudi »Cool card, but definitely won’t fit into my cube. Just too slow and resource intensive to get value out of it. To be fair I play 360 powered so most things don’t make the cut, but even at larger sizes is this playable if you don’t run a strong tokens subtheme? Because the proliferate and stat line don’t seem great. Maybe id run this at 540.
Quote from allred123 »How is this playing for those who have been able to test this guy. Where would you rank him compared to other black 4s?
