Recently, I placed 12th (11-3 record) with Golgari Yawgmoth in the 1400-player MTG Vegas Modern event. I had a great experience with it, and with this Deep Dive, I’m going to try to convince you that it’s on the short list of highly-competitive decks in Modern.
Creature-based combo decks have always been strong in Modern. From the days of Birthing Pod, to Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies, all the way to Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Walking Ballista and Kiki-Chord. Yawgmoth is the most popular and successful of these combo decks right now. It’s fast and powerful with resilient threats, efficient tutors and overwhelming card advantage.
It’s also a strategy that greatly rewards experience. So if Yawgmoth interests you, pair this Deep Dive with plenty of gameplay reps, learn from your mistakes, and watch as your results continue to improve over time.
Ragavan players don’t like having to attack through a bunch of undying creatures. That alone might be enough to sell you on Golgari Yawgmoth in Modern. But if it’s not, then by all means, read on!
