Deck Notes

I have to say, every time a Yawgmoth deck hits the top table, I get pretty excited. The proliferate/sacrifice strategy is a really fun one, and this deck does all that and more. As always, queen of everything Sheoldred is the star of the show, but this whole deck is a bomb and a half. No one is safe, and whenever you kill an enemy, you get fodder for your own sacrifices.

MTG is ever-changing, with new busted and broken cards rising to the top. Check back in next week for the upcoming top deck.

Oh hey! BoLS might make a little money if you decide to buy these items.
