Golgari Yawgmoth continues to put up results, and holds its own as one of Modern’s highly competitive “Tier 2” archetypes. It’s a tried and true strategy that was untouched by the banning of Lurrus of the Dream-Den, and it even picked up a new weapon in Boseiju, Who Endures from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty.
I’ve had a great experience with Yawgmoth when I’ve played with it myself, and in this Deep Dive, I’m going to tell you everything you need to know to start winning games with it.
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.
