Chandra's Phoenix Discussion
1 week ago
As neat of a card as AEther Membrane is, I say sideboard it for a playset of Exquisite Firecraft. This lets you hose combo/control decks that run very little creatures as it can't be countered under a normal situation in this deck. Cut Tuktuk the Explorer, every deck in modern can kill or even exile his first form, the 5/5 that results isn't much of a payoff from turn 3. I say in place of him and two copies of Chandra's Phoenix run a playset of Spark Elemental. He is a Lightning Bolt slapped onto a creature. Since you're going on a mixed creature build of a burn deck Monastery Swiftspear is a powerful staple of burn decks that can get out of control. Brute Force optionally can be replaced with Titan's Strength for card advantage. Temur Battle Rage or Assault Strobe can combo with monastery swiftspear to pull off some turn 3-4 kills.

Looks good, too bad Chandra's Phoenix isn't legal in this format.
Awesome deck though, +1

Honestly, you probably need some kind of power booster for the phoenixes. A lot of them are weak and somewhat mana heavy to bring back. Flamewake Phoenix I would try to put to four because that is the easiest one to continuously recur. I like Chandra's Phoenix because she is also somewhat easy to bring back, especially if you replace Pyroclasm with Earthquake. I'm not so sure I like Skred in here since it can only damage creatures. Maybe just a whole bunch of burn spells in its place? Also, while I have a deep love for Obsidian Fireheart (he is one of my favorite all time arts), he seems pretty out of place here. For that mana, maybe consider Flame-Wreathed Phoenix since you'll either get the return ability or a 5/5 beater.

I would think Remand is better than Mana Leak in a tempo burn deck, you don't need to completely stop your opponent, just delay them till you burn them out, and Remand replaces itself for more gas. Chandra's Phoenix is pretty bad... Stormchaser Mage is probably better if you're looking for fliers, less mana. Usually bigger attack, and most importantly, doesn't die to Pyroclasm.

Looks solid! Although the planeswalkers are a bit expensive for the deck.Goblin Guide won't be reprinted for a long time, sir, but the deck still is around tier 2 or 3 without it.What was your reasoning with Temur Battle Rage and Chandra's Phoenix? They're good, but I'm not sure if they make the cut.

I'm sure you've thought of Lightning Bolt.
Oh and I could never leave out my homegirl Monastery Swiftspear.

What is the Reverberate for in this deck?
Burst Lightning over Shock since it can potentially deal more than shock. Flame Javelin is a 4 damage to anything instant and Rekindled Flame is a 4 damage anywhere sorcery that can come back. Chandra's Phoenix, Guttersnipe, and Cinder Pyromancer seem like they'd be good here since they can recur or deal additional damage. Searing Spear is another Lightning Strike. Finally, Chandra, the Firebrand might be better than Chandra, Pyromaster since it can double a spell over, but 'drawing' a spell is good too.

Hi a long Time a played a similar Deck, when i see you Decklist i get the following suggestions comes me to Mind.
Demigod of Revenge is one of my alltime favorite cards but in my opinion there is one golden Rule: run 4 or run 0, when you decide to run 4 than a playset of Faithless Looting makes sense to Rakdos,utilize his amazing GY ability.The same with Terminate, removing from Blockers and Stuff like Thing in the Ice Flip,Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, and other Stuff that can Ruin you Gameplan, is importent for your Gameplan in my Eyes.perhaps the Demigod need a little more higher Landcount for casting him savely at Turn 5 or 6.
Rakdos, Lord of Riots is a big Badass, but in your List with a lot of ,or costs you cant utilize his ability so much. So perhaps you consider Stuff like Hellrider or when you go more the way Fanatic of Mogis especially when you play Ashenmoor Gouger and Rakdos Cackler + Rakdos Shred-Freak over Spike Jester or Hellspark Elemental otherwise Jester is definite better for sure.
For Chandra's Phoenix the same, it is a great card but i think not so necessary in this List.
So that my ideas for you Rakdos Aggro, good Luck further with it.
and for sure a +1 from a Rakdosplayer to another..;)
