hahaha. you've got it all wrong. Yog-Sothoth / Shub-Niggurath FTW
thing is ( and i'm not talking khopesh / guardian here, but my usual shub / yog decks ), i usually design them so that after a few turns they can basically run a whole turn or 2 without even touching my hand cards through various special abilities recurring cards from discard, so apierophobia really doesn't bother me, and as stated might put another card in discard that really helps me out anyway ( same with milling - love it !! ). quick decks usually start finding themselves short on cards in hand and this is why i moved to compensating with cards in discard ( and before you say it snow graves is road kill under the wheels of a yog / shub deck also designed to keep the discards free - and before you say it marcus jamburg is snot caught under the fingernails of a yog / shub deck also designed to lock down an opponent's discard pile ).
also cards like chant of thoth ( when part of a draw and played first before apierophobia can be ) gives a player the equivalent of 3 extra untouchable cards in hand, and when characters like corrupted midwife / elder thing scavenger ( possibly shock transformed in if cost is a concern ) and the great AO's Yog and Shub themselves are also available ( and these can be brought into play as early as turn 3 in some decks ), then who needs hand cards ??
that's why i love Yog / Shub. destruction decks are GENERALLY not a problem as the domains an opponent is using to do this are the mirror domains i'm using to just bring them back, and i can practically treat most of the discard as if it was sitting in my hand. it has enough sacrificing of its own to cause its own brand of havoc, superior in some ways for its card effect bypassing against wounding / destroyed, can continually remove any supports / relics that it faces while protecting its own, and blended together has a beautiful mix of terror / combat / arcane ( with a few investigations too if you want them ). finally it also has some really great cost for skill ratios happening ( 2:4 / 3:6 etc ).
zealous much ?? haha.
( and truthfully, everything i've ever said here and every deck i've posted is just blather when compared to my REAL yog / shub secret squirrel deck - i had to edit the above cause i almost gave it away !! - and the key is NONE of the above )
