The7thBobba on Rakdos Demons!

this looks cruel and unusual! or rather, just usual for you - that's meant as a compliment, if you couldn't tell ;) I was gonna suggest Defiler of Souls - as I think he's the perfect rakdos demon - but he doesn't look to fit in nicely with your other demons. stay frosty, my man!

Hunter of Eyeblights and Humble Defector seem very odd for a stax/control deck. Defiler of Souls is cute, but I think it's too much mana for its effect (given that you have a decent number of mono-colored creatures) - I'd almost rather run something like Reaper from the Abyss (more versatile and gives you the choice) or Sheoldred, Whispering One. Tsabo Tavoc is a LOT of mana, and I'd consider removing her.

I'd find space for Anguished Unmaking - while you should play both, probably, it's generally better than Chaos Warp. Beyond that, Null Rod, Armageddon, Rule of Law, and other common stax pieces are what I would consider a "must". Also, no Archfiend of Depravity? It's a good way to thin out large hordes.

...also, I'd put more basics in the deck, and work on making more of the landbase come in untapped. You need to drop your stax/control pieces before opponents drop major answers onto the field.

Huh, the thread glitched. Well here's what it was:

Right now, I'm building a Modern Grixis deck centered around Bolas but I'm trying to keep the manabase budget while staying competitive. I'm willing to spend up to $50 outside of the cards I already have on the manabase itself. The deck itself has a lot of control aspects with a bit of beatdown, with either Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker or Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh being the primary win conditions and Blood Tyrant/Defiler of Souls being back up win conditions.

Right now, I have:

Any Number of Basics (Who Doesn't)

Blood Crypt 1x

Polluted Delta 1x

Watery Grave 2x

Drowned Catacomb 2x

Dragonskull Summit 2x

I will have Crypt of the Eternals 1x (pre-ordered, I liked the land; if it doesn't go in here I have another Grixis deck)

Sulfur Falls 1x

Crumbling Necropolis 3x

Spirebluff Canal 1x

Again, I want to keep the manabase under $50 outside of what I already have. What I listed above is what's available to help construct the manabase (without spending out of the $50). Thank you!

(30% black, 19% blue, 21% red, 30% colorless (not the Eldrazi kind) in the deck)

Deck is mostly multicolored, with the majority of spells being 2 mana but having several 1 mana spells and a lot of 3-5 mana spells. Only five 6+ mana spells.

Aiming to have 22 lands total.

LuminAutopsy dude i liked you deck, Sedris is damn awesome but i think u should improve you deck a little bit more ad creatures like Prince of Thralls Crosis, the Purger Defiler of Souls.

Okay! I don't have much experience with "tabletop" MTG or anything so I'm not quite sure what to suggest--I'm also not great at aggro--but I'll just throw out this archetype you might like: B/R Legacy Reanimator. It's got a lot of hate cards like Unmask and Chancellor of the Annex that you probably don't need, but the main strategy you should enjoy: reanimating Sire Of Insanity really early with Entomb and Reanimate effects.

You could easily use this strategy to get the other big Rakdos bombs on the table too, like your Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Defiler of Souls, and Prince of Thralls. Then you could supplant some of your lower end curve spells, like Blood Speaker, with some more board control like maybe Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Go for the Throat. Especially since those help trigger Prince.

You would just really need Faithless Looting and Entomb playsets to get the fatties in the GY, then playsets of Reanimate and Animate Dead to get 'em back. With new reprints it's not too expensive; you could also substitute some Entomb with Cathartic Reunion. Dark Ritual helps speed up the whole reanimation turn too and they're cheap.

Just something to consider. It seems like a very fun archetype! :)
