Modern: BG Yawgmoth and the strength of Complexity
Today, we'll dissect one of the few combo decks that persist in Modern, BG Yawgmoth, or Golgari Sacrifice, one of the format's most synergistic strategies!

BG Yawgmoth Decklist
DemonicTutorshas opted for minimal interaction, using just one copy of Thoughtseize, a card the opponent usually plays around during most times when they see the first copy. We also have Grist, the Hunger Tide, which does a bit of everything and is found by every tutor on the deck, as it's a creature while it's outside the battlefield. Grist creates bodies, destroy creatures or planeswalkers (at the cost of a sacrifice, which in this deck is almost free) and may even be an alternate wincondition. All of these pieces put together create an extremely solid and resilient deck, as its pieces are a bit problematic to deal with, and it has many ways to put the combo on the board. Thus, BG Yawgmoth proves to be one of the most consistent combos currently.
