Okull and Mariah should be run for her react is practically a 3rd HP. Also I think Cloak of the Leech is underestimated in 4E. I personally dont think Shroud of Lost Souls is completely better than Cloak for this deck. I only would play it in Necros. What if you were playing against weenie blitz like Keziah? "Remove Scarlett from the game and do a DC 13 :? " While Meteor Swarm can get even HIGHER in the 20's with the Cloak. :yes:

Shroud is usually run as Graveyard control moreso than a way to do wounding. In certain situations, getting a key character like Tyyphera or Aida out of the opponent's graveyard is a key play rather than the character dying from the check. That's why Shroud usually wins the "Shroud vs. Cloak" argument.

Every Yavlo deck should run 3xAlexa Genecourts, period. She is the single best defense he has against *everything* and she is not once per turn. She makes the second rank safe while she's alive, even against the new sniper tricks that are coming out.

Faerie Bolt would beg to differ.

Alexa Genecourt can still defend at least if they are using Fairie Bolt.

Have you thought about putting in either magic missles or flame arrow's? IDK I've never built a deck based around this guy before but those both seem to be better then fireball, granted the MM doesn't receive any bonus but he still can ready off it,, and if you start with a level 2 wiz it's never a dead card....Herick the Venomous this guy seem's like he wound fit the bill.....Thought's?

Yavlo cannot ready from Magic Missiles.

Except that Alexa can still react to cancel the Faerie Bolt shot, and failing that then react to make you shoot her with the Faerie Bolt. And if you miss both of those, she can still defend the shot at Yavlo as a last ditch effort. So far from useless IMO.

I meant the React on Faerie bolt would cancel Alexa's react, but yes, she could still defend.

Due to the likely increase in sniper decks, I have included 2x Alexa Genecourt maindecked in addition to the one I was already starting. I had to drop Temur for it, but overall, I think it was a worthwhile trade.

I'm probably going to start including 2x Ironcloth Bracers in my Wizard decks. Yavlo has the benefit of Alexa Genecourt, Temur, Mistress Edrea, Caleb the Shifter, and Mother Deiane, so I have little worries about his survivability in the coming storm.

I found flame arrows to be super lack luster, and fire odem to be much superior to it

The original deck list had Fireball, but never Flame Arrows (serious waste of space IMO). Then I acquired 2x Fire Odem to replace the Fireballs and am very happy with its ability to break ranks; it is especially nice as the first spell against the standard Drasek Berenj starting line: 3x Brine Fiend and 2x Narutep.
