Bontu's Monument Discussion
1 week ago
I personally don't feel the new Rakdos is competitive. If anyone can prove me wrong, cool. Either way, he is a lot of fun. What I did with mine is create a "Russian Roullete" themed deck. It's very casual, cheesy board wipes, and some of my own minions are not immune to Rakdos Roullete. He's a lot of fun. Here are some useful picks you might want to consider.
Basically, blink Rakdos. :) If you find any others, please let me know. Here is the link to my version.
No graveyard recursion whatsoever, just a bunch of demons, some other useful critters. Some devils, imps. Somewhat refined draw, and a stupid amount of ramp. I saw the cost of Rakdos, and demons, and decided they needed to become affordable ASAP. Built for fun. It gets those demons out though, so you don't necessarily have to cut demons, in fact, because of Liliana's Contract being so cheap right now, I'd take advantage of that if you already haven't. Also, Revel in Riches ..... Running my version, you are basically playing Rakdos Roullette, again and again hehe. Mirror March looks interesting. I am considering Krark's Thumb for mine.
Be careful playing Painful Quandary! If you don't have a ton of discard to support that card, you can get targeted really fast. I run it in my Gonti's suicide hotline deck.
My Rakdos is either hilariously effective against something, or ridiculously ineffective. But, as a lover of board wipes, he is a ton of fun. I may consider Mirror March for my version, so thank you for sharing. Look through my creatures though! There are some fantastic demons that make the ramp worth it. I've got a pretty good ramp package too, so check that out as well.

I think those are some really nice cuts, can't agree with you more except for one. Call to the Grave I would play, it's a decent card wich put's pressure on your opponents. Instead I would take out Geth, Lord of the Vault . If you don't have the money for Damnation then the more expensive Life's Finale is alright.
Things to cut for your counterspells, Dread Summons yes, Dark Salvation yes, Living Death no. The last one is really to good to cut, especially if you gonna keep your opponents graveyards empty of value with your commander. Grimgrin, Corpse-Born I would cut as well, since he wants to sac stuff, but your ethernalized creatures will be gone forever if you sac him to grimgrin. If you really need a sac outlet I would go for Yahenni, since she can survive boardwhipes.
Other slot's im not so sure about are: Midnight Reaper and i'm sorry Bontu's Monument The monument does not provide any bonus in activating your God more than once, only provides a discount on casting spells. A true mana rock would be a better choice for this slot, since it can be used for both! Mind Stone for example. The lifeloss the monument gives, your commander will provide as well. Don't forget about Paradox Haze wich gives you 2 upkeeps ;)
Hope this helps again! And you know where to find me if you want to discuss some more! :)

Hallo FounderX, yes that is correct and wanted. This is not a Commander 99 + 1 deck but an EDH (Elder Dragon Highlander deck) with a minimum of +100 cards. We play this format because sometimes, like in this deck of mine sometimes some cards have to come in more. I usually play my EDH decks with 105-120 cards, although I also have a deck with ~ 135 cards.
The idea with Bontu's Monument is actually quite interesting, I will test it out.

on Need rats?

If i was going to to tune this for FNM I would play 4 Pack Rat some number of relentless rat 4 Typhoid Rats 4 Aether Vial and then the rest just needs to be hand disruption ( Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek ) and removal ( Fatal Push , Doom Blade , Dismember , ect.) I would't use any of the extra cards that you have ( The Rack , Bontu's Monument , Trespasser's Curse ) or anything over 3 mana. Modern is a brutally fast format, most decks can kill turn 3 and everything else can kill turn 4. You unfortunately cannot, so you need to be as efficient at disruption as possible. I also wouldnt use Bojuka Bog or Thespian's Stage . I would replace it with 3 Field of Ruin and swamps
also you deck is under standard so I can't suggest any of these. Good Luck!!
