I feel a little torn as to whether one should build according to one's favored colors (GWU in my case), or one's favorite potential commander, that being Yasova as I mentioned in the post title. I've already made one chart for the GWU, so I'm spending excess time on charting a Yasova deck. (Just remember that I'm in no position to play just yet; a big part of the reason I'm spending so much time charting is so that when I *am* in a position to play, I don't waste money on cards I'll prove not to need.) I decided to have Yasova take helm position away from Intet for a deck experiment that relied on playing games with who's blocking whom, with a healthy dose of temporary critter theft to arrange attacking (and enemy defending) forces as I see fit.

Now I have to figure out how to fill this up to 100, first and foremost. Especially on the green side.

COMMANDER:


CREATURES:







(having a way to mess around with how combat goes without spending at that moment is always welcome)



(I have green and blue available, this always makes itself known. No exceptions.)



(That powerful blocker suddenly isn't so powerful any more...)
(Radiant trample is always nice to have around when you're fiddling with block assignments for yourself)

ENCHANTMENTS:
(not sure if this is merited...)





ARTIFACTS:
(primarily so things like False Orders and Provoke can become repeatable)
(no, you're not getting the critter back, not if I think you're going to use it on me first and foremost, anyway)

(mostly for Yasova herself, so she can handle getting into scraps. Or the Vorine...)



SORCERIES:



(I'm using fighting as a sort of spot removal)


INSTANTS:


(May want to look for a different way to clone a creature; this is a holdover from when Intet was commander, so she could benefit from scrying putting the "correct" card on top)






LANDS: (trying to get seven more)





*6


*7

*7

(Mostly to help Yasova avoid getting sent to sick bay)




Current card total: 74 (not counting Yasova)

Obviously, mana ramp is missing, so that could easily be something to help shore up the green side of this. I'm just getting the feeling there's other things along the lines of the provoke critters that would fit the battle manipulation theme.

Okay, I've developed this to 100 cards, but the chart is looking distinctly unfocused. Probably because I was looking at another Yasova charting on MTGSalvation, and I took some card ideas from there. So now the question is figuring out how to properly focus this thing (e.g. should I stick to combat manipulation, or is lockdown a better subtheme?).

COMMANDER


CREATURES (26)




























ENCHANTMENTS (15)
















ARTIFACTS (6)







PLANESWALKERS (2)



SORCERIES (7)








INSTANTS (5)



(surprise way to get extra mana)


LANDS (38)
*7
*6
*6




















EDIT: Now that I've learned about the recent banning, has been replaced by (although I can't say I like the price tag...). I also removed , (neither of them seems to be available on MTGO, which is where I'm relegated for the time being), and (not worth it for just ) for , , and .

You're going to have swap seedborne muse in for prophet, as the lady of kruphix was the most recent recipient of the banhammer.

A bit of tweaking I did for Eldritch Moon. Now to see what can go in from Kaladesh...

OUT: *1, , ,
IN: , , ,

EDIT: And the five candidates from Kaladesh have been identified: , , , (for the second ability), and .

Still not vectoring in Kaladesh cards for now (simply because MuMagic hasn't been updated for Kaladesh yet, although there is the thought of replacing with ...maybe), but nonetheless I did some heavy editing, mostly of fight cards.

OUT:

OUT:
-- (When there's a card that grants everyone double strike for just one more red mana...)
--
--
--
--

IN:
--
--
--
-- (slowly but surely, this deck will become not-so-starved for card draw)
-- (precipice card; mostly, it jumped out at me while I was looking through red KTK cards, looking for replacements for Mana Flare and Mudslide)
--

Now I just need a way to cram in and ...Any suggestions on whom to jettison? (Well, Mindswipe might already be on the jettison list...)

This is something of a "net" change, considering how long it's been since I updated the chart. (Still no actual playing experience for Commander. Still trying to make sure I can hit the ground running when I get an actual chance to play.)

OUT: , , , , , ,

IN: , , (tentative), , (tentative after remembering I have in here), (maybe instead?),

EDIT: Bah, I just realized there's a severe problem with the Ragebeast--as long as it's out, getting Yasova out is rather difficult (you're not given the choice as to whether to fight or not, and absent Hero's Blade, Yasova is going to be squishy on arrival). Replaced with .

Updates for Ixalan! (Not much to put in from Rivals of Ixalan. Maybe , but I can't figure out what to jettison for it.)

OUT: (too easy to see coming), , , (was really just my idea of a talisman card), , (hope I know what I'm doing)

IN: , , , , , (more card draw)
