Active Volcano Discussion
1 month ago
Ironically, this list probably does work better in a cEDH meta than a casual meta but only if opponents kept sub optimal hands. You can live past a few counter spells but the amount of board wipes in the average casual meta would probably really hurt.
I've found that the best strategy for running Rakdos in a casual meta is to sand bag really hard then explode after the first or 2nd board wipe. Adding board wipe recovery may help you. Perhaps consider Living Death or Garna, the Bloodflame for wipe recovery.
Active Volcano seems bad but may help stop a counter spell or pop a fish.
Also Flame Rift is huge value for the mander.
Fire Covenant is straight gas.
Anyway, I know this list is dated, I just wanted to give my 2 cent and give you some kudos for the effort you have put into this list, it looks fun.

See I would beileve that He identifys as a RBG card but he cant be destroyed by a simple card like Active Volcano so therefore it shouldnt matter what mana symbols he has in the rule text because its just not true. He's not RBG he's a red card you can't change that. This rule basically says you cant have any color that your commander doesnt have even if you pay the ability corectly unless you use extort. And I dont know why this is a rule but it's actually ridiculous.

- Active Volcano (limited to Blue, not Modern legal)
- Anarchy (limited to White, not Modern legal)
- Fury Charm (it can remove all of one enchantment: Reality Acid)
- Jalum Grifter (luck based, and from an Unset, so not legal in any format)
- Landfill (not only from an Unset, but it's a dexterity card. Double illegal).
- Pyroblast (limited to Blue, not Modern legal)
- Red Elemental Blast (limited to Blue, not Modern legal)
I'm sure that's all more information than you wanted, but since I did the research for my own edification, I figured I would pass along my results.

Apologies for the delay, I had to write this twice.One time mana sources make a lot of sense since you do need 11 mana to play your commander and equip all in the same turn.Basalt Monolith, Grim Monolith, Lion's Eye Diamond, Mana Vault, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song, Lotus Bloom, Lotus Petal, Treasonous Ogre, Vessel of Volatility, Simian Spirit Guide
EquipmentHammer of Nazahn, Helm of the Host, Lightning Greaves all good but how do you feel about Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault backup strategy? Sword of the Animist is a good equipment for this strategy as well but depending on the table may not be fast enough.
Love the counter package, no Dualcaster Mage?Fork, Burnout, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Ricochet Trap, Glorious End, and of course Possibility Storm. Not a big fan of Veilstone Amulet in cedh but the makeup of your local meta will make or break this card. Active Volcano is probably too much.
Maybe too many colorless lands? I think you could cut one land overall but I understand you want to hit each land drop. Ancient Tomb, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls, City of Traitors, Command Beacon, Crystal Vein, Dwarven Ruins, Gemstone Caverns, 25xMountain, Sandstone Needle, Scorched Ruins, Sequestered Stash
Kuldotha Forgemaster is a good way to tutor the equipment into play.
Sphere of Resistance is a fantastic protection card but can make it easier for others to combo if you leave it out.

One or two Dwarven Driller might work for damage or land hate.
