Snap157 on Rakdos; Burn It Down

18 hours ago

Alrighty then let's get you all set!

You've got some big things and that's not bad with your commander, but you'll need some cheaper burn spells if Rakdos can really work. With that being said, Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, Bump in the Night, and Rift Bolt are your best friends. As for land base, try to shy away from basics, but add in as many rakdos duals that don't come in tapped as possible. I'll get you started down below.

While using rakdos, keep in mind that he takes away only colorless mana, so huge eldrazi such as Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Desolation Twin and It That Betrays can all go out for free if you play it right.

It's also important to keep in mind that the ability only impacts creatures, so super expensive things like Din of the Fireherd, Subterranean Tremors don't belong.

Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:

replace with:

With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!

AgentGreen, given that the point of removal is to destroy creatures, I'm not sure that's enough evidence to condemn a creature-based mechanic like Eternalize. That's like saying Arcbound Ravager or Tarmogoyf is bad because they get Pushed (and Pathed, and sometimes Bolted, and Mana Leaked).

Now, I'm not saying you have to suddenly like Eternalize, just that it might find a niche in Standard by occupying similar roles to Bump in the Night, where the first cast is what you'll probably use, but the second cast can be useful late-game from the grave.

Well the issue I see is you aren't running enough creatures. Midrange normally runs about 12-13, then 3-4 decent walkers to back up those threats as must answer cards. Which you are lacking. They also have access to man-lands to help apply pressure.

Drop all the Vexing Devil and Bump in the Night. For creatures you've got stuff like Thundermaw Hellkite, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Gurmag Angler, For walkers, Liliana of the Veil, Liliana, the Last Hope, Chandra, Pyromaster and Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

For removal, you can probably drop Doom Blade due to the prevalence of DS and Go for the Throat, instead play Fatal Push. Kolaghan's Command is also pretty sweet for recursion, mainboard artifact hate, damage and discard.

I would suggest taking out 5 Swamp to add 4 Bloodstained Mire and 1 Smoldering Marsh (or 1 Blood Crypt, not sure what would be better in this slot). That essentially gives us 4 extra copies of Leechridden Swamp and the ability to flashback Bump in the Night in games that eventually go long.

Beacon of Unrest is WAAAAAY too expensive to be competitive in Modern. By the time you cast it, assuming you've both found your Twin AND put it in the yard, which is unlikely, you've probably already lost because your deck has literally no way at all to interact with the board. I have some advice for you that I give to almost every player who posts a Modern list like this:

If this is your first foray into Modern, don't brew. You don't know the format. You don't know the meta. You don't understand all the interactions and all the decks and all the little nuances of the different matchups. You're better off finding and learning an established meta list. If you're on a budget, there are much better budget options.

If this is not your first foray into Modern, then you know that this is not good enough to win.

If you're a new player, Modern is NOT THE RIGHT FORMAT FOR YOU. It's too fast, too competitive, too expensive, and too complicated. I personally would recommend casual play until you have a firm grasp of the rules, then start with Standard. Don't play Modern until you're confident that you can play it well.

Also, some advice, learn the deck names. I saw the word "burn" and the BR colors and expected Lightning Bolt, Goblin Guide, and Bump in the Night. Nothing about this deck has anything to do with burn.

Your spells are midrange, your creatures are midrange, but you've got Vexing Devil, who is just 4 damage, and Bump in the Night which is just damage. The fast blast off is just going to put you down cards, because they can stabilize because the rest of the deck isn't applying enough pressure.

I would cut the fairly weak burn elements for more creatures of quality.

godzilla080 Sorry, guess I should have pointed out that this deck is intended to be strictly mono red. Even if I were to splice black, one black card like Bump in the Night doesn't really justify splicing for me.
