    [Deck Development]Yorion + Restoration Angel/Felidar Guardian chaining

    https://magic.wizards.com/en/article...toast_th_place

    This deck made me notice the rather hilarious interaction between Yorion and blink/flicker effects. Especially Restoration Angel/Felidar Guardian are great for this as they grant a Yorion rotation every end step (in contrast to Flickerwisp-type effects which can do a full rotation only every second end step).

    A D&T shell probably isn't fast enough to churn out a 4 mana and 5 mana card. A better approach might be a Maverick (or Nic Fit) shell to ramp up mana, which would also provide search (GSZ and Fiend Artisan) and protection (Mom/Giver/Sylvan Safekeeper).

    ETB effects might include:

    Arcum's Astrolabe
    Eternal Witness
    Renegade Rallier
    Knight of Autumn

    and many more. The nice thing about the combo is that it's self-sustaining once it's played, so no further mana costs required.

    Another approach might be a white Stompy shell that runs Eldrazi Displacer in addition for instant Yorion flickers on demand (costs 3 mana, though). Since you're most likely running Chalice in that kind of shell, abusable ETB might be a bit harder to come by, but might be still worth a shot (SFM, Flickerwisp, Palace Jailer, TKS, Prophetic Prism for draw and mana fixing, Charming Prince, etc.). If you want to go balls-to-the-walls in terms of accel, it's worth noting that Yorion can untap your Grim Monoliths you've used to cast it (same goes for Guardian if you absolutely need a decent blocker).

    Running loads of blink effects also helps you to unfuck your permanents after they got Oko'd.

    Edit:
    Since Yorion is also blue, another variant could be an Emry/Urza Stompy deck that splashes white for Karakas, Teferi and the blinkers.

    Either approach might be promising. What do you think?

    Yorion is a bit like Lurrus in that you donít really need to break it specifically, it slots into good decks as they are pretty much....

    Yorion has almost the same text as worldgorger dragon. you may want to play with animate dead since you have a bouncable tutor (heliod pilgrim), there is an existing combo, and your whole plan doesn't fall apart when they fow your 5 drop.
