Creatures: Rakdos, Lord of Riots makes you jump through hoops to cast, then only really benefits creatures which you are light on. Although I love the flavor, it may be an upgrade target. Something like Vial Smasher the Fierce or Sire Of Insanity could keep the flavor but give better long term results.

Wall of Shadows The flavor is once again strong with this pick. However, it is the black Fog Bank. If creatures are a premium for you, it may be a slot. I don't have upgrades, just an observation.

Speaking of your creatures, over 90% cost 4+. You will need defense if unable to stay below suspicion. Which brings me to removal... Most of it is targeted or sorcery. In the colors where you will make each opponent angry, you NEED the flexibility to remove when needed. Or the very least, remove everything (board wipe) to buy time, ie: Damnation, Blasphemous Act... cards like that will keep the board clear till you can play the big X spells FTW. Midnight Recovery only targets your grave, which will most likely not have a target. Possibly Animate Dead or Beacon of Unrest would be a better fit. Sadistic Sacrament will, at best, anger 1 opponent. Most likely the 1 who is the most ahead. Why turn that chair? Secondly, Stitch Together also only works for your grave, which will most likely be creature light given ~17% of your build are creatures in the grave. Cut or Killing Wave may be options? Artifacts are heavily reliant on a creature. There are several card slots that could be utilized to better punish opponents here. Enchantments: Wound Reflection and Stolen Strategy are amazing! The other 2 feel narrow only because they rely on you having creatures. A single board wipe, removal spell, etc will render these cards worthless. Lastly, lands... this is a controversial topic I typically do not comment on via TO. I'll remain brief, but currently with a avg CMC of 3.63 and most of your spells costing 4+ or are X spells 37 lands feels low. 39 may be better. Although fetches don't add to much in EDH, they do offer choice and remove dead land draws later. More dual options could be helpful too. Lastly Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, Command Tower, Tainted Peak & Badlands are just to name a few. In closing, I love what this build is trying to do. Playing the player is very next level, even though it creates fast enemies. Preparing for the backlash that comes with being 'that player' will increase both win and fun. Believe me. You may not win every game, but you'll have a great time seeing everyone squirm. Keep up the dirty work. There is always the most filthy of them all... Suicide Rakdos. :)

Going to vote neither. Both have high potential to be dead cards in a lot of games. I would suggest 1x Cut the Ribbons instead.

I have a few suggestions;

1) instead of Boros Guildgate, have you considered running Wind-Scarred Crag? It is strictly better than the Guildgate, and has good synergy with Lich's Mastery, and makes it not a useless topdeck in the late game. Speaking of lands, I also think that a third Field of Ruin is worth considering, since you are currently running sixteen basic lands.

2) it feels to me that, as a combo control deck, that you need more ways to reliably draw cards. I'm not sure how well the deck has been performing for you without it (aside from Lich's Mastery, obviously), but I feel like Wall of Omens would be a good inclusion over some of the more situational/clunky cards, like Renewed Faith, or maybe cut down on some of the removal (the Cut feels out of place to me, and there are better options, like Flame Slash for example). And maybe Prophetic Prism over Navigator's Compass since that also cantrips?

3) why do you not have a sideboard? Does your playgroup not play with them? I always have a sideboard built for my decks, just in case, and I recommend that you build one to, for this deck and whatever other decks you have, since it at least gives you practice on building them. And even if you don't want to build one in paper, you can always build one on the TappedOut page here and mess around with it before you actually put one together.

I hope that some of these suggestions helped, and +1 from me! The deck looks fun!

My experiences with my White with Angels are similiar, only i was lucky and could defeat an imperfect Turbo Fog 2-0. UB Midrange and Hard Control are a massive Problem, but let‘s see what happens once Torrential Gearhulk is history... I built mine around History of Benalia, Benalish Marshal- thus making Resplendent Angel boltproof, saving Shalai, Voice of Plenty from Cut even before Lyra Dawnbringer hits the board. That’s the reason why I only splash black, I want 3 on turn 3, so I decided against . Good Luck and Fun playing the Deck!

Alright, maybe ill try experimenting with it.

Do you think Cut would be better in the sideboard than Never like my build has?

I think I could side out a Unlicensed Disintegration and have 1x Cut in my Main and 1x Cut in the sideboard.

Primal Amulet  Flip I did have in there, but never got it out. I took it out again after having so many games just be way too on curve or aggressive for it to have done anything. But I'm willing to leave it in to really give it a good try.

Its funny, but Cut actually pulled me to B/R in my first theories of where to force Jaya. Sad thing is I couldn't come up with enough real nice instants/sorceries or creatures that cared about spells. Add to the fact this deck becomes super hungry for card draw, and it just seemed natural to go into blue instead. However, this does remind me that I should take a second look at the aftermath cards. Commit may have a place, though I do not like it giving cards to the opponent. But it does stop Carnage Tyrant... which generally eats this deck alive.

Don't get me wrong though, part of me really wants to splash black just for Ribbons... but there are already way too many double blue and double/triple red spells for that mana base to work.

Thats a good idea since Ribbons originally doubles as a win con, so Ill add 1 Cruel Ultimatum and lose one Cut for now. But I dont want to take away a lot because I still love cut because its sort of card advantage within itself. And I already have a playset of both Terminate and Dreadbore but 2 of each on the sideboard. Like I said in my description, you can swap them out if you want a full set of Terminate over Dreadbore. They are just interchangeable depending on the situation, thats why I only have 2 of each mainboarded.

Personally, I'd cut Cut (heh). You can run better and faster removal, and if you have the time/mana to cast Ribbons, you've probably already won. With the amount of creatures you're running, a mid-late game Cruel Ultimatum will steal games.

One or two copies of Ultimatum, fill up on Terminate, maybe even mainboard some board wipes.
