This is cool, not a commander I've played, +1. I always thought her ability was kind of weird, but in this environment, it works! Also lol communism.

I thought Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor could be interesting? Same kinda Akroan Horse thing but different. Also Coveted Jewel and Assault Suit are fun "gifts" to give. Bazaar Trader is a must.

Hiya!! Looking good so far! one of the trickiest thing with a deck like this is balancing the chaos/ group slug nature of red/black with the politics that Xantcha wants to direct.

I think Akroan Horse is perfect for you. and also Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , these two cards are great for getting other people at the table to join your side, or at least reconsider attacking you. Havoc Festival is also a must. Even Torgaar, Famine Incarnate would fit too. Vial Smasher the Fierce helps sow those seeds of Chaos as well.

I think political Rakdos is one of the coolest archetypes, and this deck seems like it's got the potential! Keep at it! How has it been to play so far?

I like Hunted Lammasu best of those options. Akroan Horse is good, but takes time to really earn itself, and there's a lot of artifact hate, from Kolaghan's Command to Abrade .1 horror is a lot easier to deal with than 5 goblins, though, yeah. I I should have looked through the hunted cycle again. I went down from 3 to 2 phantasms for that reason, 5 creatures being hard to keep under control.

I'll take out the time ravelers, but I'm not sure what I'll replace it with. If I end up needing more reliable creature presence on the opposite side of the board, I could add more Hunted Lammasu , but Niblis of Frost is also good, and I like the ability to make an Opt a free activated ability from Quiet Contemplation . Against aggro, lifelink would be helpful, so maybe Ojutai Exemplars instead of the niblis of frost?

As for having a way to permanently shut creatures down, that kind of goes against the aesthetic. The hope is that I'll be able to net more value out of it than my oppinent will with Verity Circle . Not all games will have verity circle out though, I know.

Gideon is a way to deal with tapped creatures, but he's a 1-of. Should I bump that number up, or go with a card like Swift Reckoning ?

I think you should probably use Hunted Lammasu or Akroan Horse instead of Hunted Phantasm . Giving them one creature would be much easier to manage than having to deal with 5 1/1s.

Right now, Serum Visions is the only card that Teferi, Time Raveler helps out. You could probably cut those Teferis for more finishers, like Icefall Regent or Niblis of Frost .

I think you need some way to permanently deal with creatures. In modern, there are some creatures that you can't just let a stay on the board for extended periods of time, like Dark Confidant .

Love that deckname :D

I accidentally only just yesterday build my own massacre girl, but with a little twist: I included lots of discard so my opponents have to choose if they keep their cards in hand to have them discarded, or if they commit to the board and run into the visible wipe from the command zone.

Yours is very cool as well though. Just kill everything. Swarm of Bloodflies and Patron of the Vein might be very useful for you. Also how about Akroan Horse ?

Scipio was designed with Akroan Horse , and similar "group hug" ideas in mind, as well as a stax type commander.

Decks that give things to other people are always pretty cool, and having all five colors gives you a lot of control over how to make that happen.

  • You know who's cool? Xantcha, Sleeper Agent . In terms of cards that give other people cards, this is a cool card that gives someone a card. Rite of the Raging Storm is a good one too, though I suspect it doesn't let you choose who gets it in the same way as these other ones. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor and Akroan Horse as well. I was going to bring up Sylvan Offering , but you have it already.

  • Two of my favorite cards in the game are Coveted Jewel and Stuffy Doll . Both of these are pretty neat; they encourage people to attack you, but move that damage around. Stuffy Doll is a great way to get around opponents pillow forts, etc, while coveted jewel is great for you specifically, giving you much needed mana (not that you lack mana, but 5 color decks can always use a card that can give all 5) and card draw. In my own Thantis deck, I found both these cards to be worth a ton of political leverage.
