Yasova is actually the last place I tried City of Shadows and it was ok, but not great

I mean even within the bounds of what could reasonably be expected. Yasova's pretty intensive on colored mana, so having a bunch of colorless mana from your City doesn't help as much as it might otherwise, and the way her ability works means she's pretty easy to interact with and prevent me from stealing a guy and nomming it. It just always felt clunky, like I wasn't maximizing City's potential.

maybe instead of threaten you should be looking for creature token generation. stuff like Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools

Yeah, the threaten plan does draw a lot of aggro. Nomming one thing and then proliferating is probably the easiest way to break it, though really the part I wanted to break was the nomming and not the extra mana

Yeah city is kind of just a mediocre card, you need to eat 2 things before it's a temple of the false god. You have to really want sac outlets on lands.

yeah that's the other thing is if you're trying to break the nom part then there are so many other better cards that let you repeatedly sacrifice creatures for value

It's especially tricky because it exiles, and you really would rather your nontoken creatures go to the graveyard

Somehow I forgot that Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir forced your opponents to sorcery speed. Then I spent a long time trying to remember what you used to make scepter chant a full lock

I think the spikes are just part of a weird hat (you can see what appears to be a brim separating them from his face) so he might not even be mutated

and oracle has him as a human cleric yeah

I just realized that's an "as", so it's not a trigger. I wonder why they did that.
