Cinder Pyromancer could be worth a look.

I love your inclusion of Cinder Pyromancer, I would also put in Thermo-Alchemist to have basically two of the same card running around causing chaos. +1 for a great deck.

And yes I see what you're wanting to do. Cast a bunch of spells and pump your creatures up to give them Rush of Adrenaline. Unfortunately that only targets a single creature at a time. You might want to look into more machine-gun creatures. Guys who untap anytime you cast a spell.

Also:

Pyromancer's Assault and Galvanic Bombardment are really nice, too.

I would say the biggest problem with this Rakdos, Lord of Riots build is the lack or cheap sources of early damage that cost no mana to activate by the time you have the needed to drop Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Rakdos Ickspitter, Spiteful Returned, Mardu Shadowspear, and Goblin Fireslinger are the only cards I see that guarantee damage assuming they have blockers. I would Up the count of cards that do this job to at least 10, If you do that you can afford to convert the rest of these dinky creatures to the Plethera of beat sticks that this guild has access to. Other worthwhile cards for this job are Cinder Pyromancer, Cunning Sparkmage, Dauthi Slayer, Goblin Arsonist, Honden of Infinite Rage, Lobber Crew, Mogg Fanatic, Nettle Drone, Goblin Sharpshooter, and Tunneling Geopede.

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.

Dude! I don't know why I haven't seen this yet, but it looks dope! It's wonderfully straightforward, and that is usually the most enjoyable way to play red, amirite? I'd say that since you no longer run chandra, liberating combustion is too pricy. You can find better and cheaper burn. I'd go with Ravaging Blaze or maybe Scouring Sands to deal with large numbers of weenies. Since you're not really using energy counters that much, I'd replace the spontaneous artist with something more juicy like a Manic Vandal or an Avaricious Dragon if it ain't too expensive :p also, since you're in monoR, Cinder Pyromancer will definitely earn her keep. Stay fresh!

To cast Rakdos, Lord of Riots you need to be 100% sure of dealing combat damage at turn 4. It really depends on what kind of opponent you're facing. If your little damagers are blocked or removed, no Rakdos, Lord of Riots for you.

You can also design other ways to do free damage at turn 4. Examples are countless:


The other route is "not casting it":

  • Fleshwrither's unique put-into-play-from-library ability that works because both rakdos and this horrific guy cost 4 mana total (not doable on turn 4)

  • using things that let you put it into play from your hand like Through the Breach or Quicksilver Amulet

  • putting Rakdos into the graveyard and reanimating it directly into play. This is the way Reanimator decks cheat powerful creatures (Griselbrand) into play. You have to: (1) find your Rakdos from your library and (2) put him into your graveyard, (3) reanimate it, (4) in some cases find a way to dodge the reanimation spell drawbacks. It's tricky, see that a deck that does this needs the whole deck built around this single combo (http://www.channelfireball.com/articles/grishoalbrand-deck-tech-and-guide/)


I recommend the two following articles:

  • how to handle Rakdos Lord of Riots (http://www.gatheringmagic.com/andrew-wilson-rakdos-return-to-ravnica-keyword-121112-paincast/)

  • suggestions for a Rakdos Commander list (http://legitmtg.com/casual/their-agony-and-the-ecstasy/) that has a huge number of synergic card suggestions (not always modern-legal eh!)
