Demigod of Revenge Discussion

RazortoothMtg Godhead of Awe is suicide. It's ALL other creatures, including your own. Someone just needs to drop a Black Sun's Zenith for 1 or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and your entire deck of 'indestructable' gods is an hero. There's not enough spaces after the addition of the Amonkhet block gods, so cuts needed to be made. Nobilis of War wasn't good enough, the colours of Divinity of Pride are covered by the other demigods and there was a lack of Rakdos Devotion colours in the other demigods with the removal of Nobilis and Pride, so Demigod of Revenge was included.
Lykaios Wrath of God is something I should have included. As explained above Demigod of Revenge is there to ensure colour devotions are covered evenly. Fist of Suns is primarily used for Progenetus. NOTHING hurts more than an unblockable, almost untouachable 10/10 commander on turn 4 or 5. Pillar of the Paruns was in the first itteration of this deck, but I found it too restrictive, especially now with the 5 new mono-coloured Amonkhet gods and the Enchantresses that exist in the deck, along with the non creature mono coloured support cards. It's good, but also too restrictive for my tastes. Glad it works for you though. Still, more hate is likely to be a good idea. Thanks for that. ;)

Hey there! I'll throw an up-vote your way for the idea alone. I was toying around with the same deck idea for awhile but abandoned it in the end. So a couple of questions/suggestions from me. For starters I'm surprised at the lack of an obligatory Wrath of God. It's flavorful AND effective. Though unlike mine your deck throws in some more..."Mortal" beings. Not sure what you're gunning for. On that note, Demigod of Revenge I get the flavor, but in commander it does come out lacking. Sure you're aware of that but just wanted to check. Fist of Suns is another card I feel could be replaced. It saves you mana on Avacyn, Angel of Hope and The Locust God by my count, and is used as mana fixing for your bi-color spirits. Not really mana-fixing but damn close with your creature base being mostly 5 or less, Maelstrom Nexus does wonders in most decks that can run it. On the topic of mana Pillar of the Paruns Has done me wonders in the past, and unlike a lot of good lands. Won't make your wallet cry in one fell swoop. (Looking at you Cavern of Souls ) Moving along a Strionic Resonator Could do wonders here with all the triggered abilities. Keranos is a good example, netting you 6 free damage or an extra 2 cards! In a deck that could be named value r us it helps. Now as you've stated Gods get A LOT of hate. With good reason mind you but still. Having some more hate cards of your own, such as board wipes or removal. Could help you a lot out there. Alternatively some political cards could draw the hate elsewhere. Really depends on your groups meta, just like everything else in Commander amirite? Anyways, in conclusion I like the deck. I have more suggestions on landbase etc. If you want them (Basically based on your budget, and no I don't mean true duals q-q) anything else would be based on what you're gunning for here. Good job bud!

Why no Godhead of Awe, Divinity of Pride, or Nobilis of War to finish out the cycle? Even if you didn't want them to finish out the cycle, Divinity of Pride seems just better than Demigod of Revenge in commander, where you can't reanimate anything with him.

Thanks for the tips. So, just to ask, making it more "creature heavy" isn't a good choice? I mean some cards like Ob Nixilis, Unshackled or something like Demigod of Revenge are too slow? Sinkhole is an interesting addition that I didn't know. Thanks for adivices I keep looking after them since I'm quite noob :)

Hey! I just started playing recently and after realizing I wasn't even halfway to finishing my Jund deck, I decided to flesh out a similar Rakdos control deck to yours. I like your list, especially Beseech the Queen which I may very well add to my own deck as a 1 of. It's nice for finding that 3rd or 4th Demigod of Revenge.
I would recommend going up to 2x Crumble to Dust in your sideboard. Without any other land destruction, I feel like you will really want to see this vs Tron and even vs UW control. Another possible alternative is Shatterstorm over By Force. If you like the ability to play it on 2 or 3, maybe try a 1-1 split between the two to see which serves you better when you sideboard it in. Vandalblast or Shattering Spree are options as well, though I understand Shattering Spree isn't the cheapest of cards. That being said, being able to pay just 1 to destroy 1 artifact is nice.
One last suggestion is depending on your meta, adding in a 1x or 2x Devour Flesh to your mainboard might be alright vs something like Death's Shadow and it's alright vs boggles until they get out Leyline of Sanctity as well. You can always slot it out if you don't need it in the matchup, or use it on yourself for the life gain in the most dire of situations.

I think you're trying to play two very different games using that many creatures and Thing in the Ice Flip, also consider that there are very few cards that will get your Prized Amalgams out of the graveyard and using Demigod of Revenge means you want to have a mana base that consists almost entirely of black and red, committing your deck a lot more towards those colors.

I think Master of the Feast, while aggressively costed for its P/T, goes against your strategy to strip away your opponents resources with discard.
If you are looking for card draw other than Tormenting Voice or Daredevil Dragster then you could do something like Night's Whisper or Read the Bones or Sign in Blood (which can also target your opponent for lethal)
Not sure if this is budget or not since you have fetches but here are some other plain Rakdos good stuff that could have gotten overlooked.
Fulminator Mage (more resource denial)
Slaughter Games for the SB
Graven Cairns is great mana fixing for this deck
Sorry if some of this was over budget!

If you aren't completely attached to vampire tribal (don't blame you if you are. Love me some vamps) I would consider 4x Demigod of Revenge to go with your Buried Alive. Vicious combo that lets you pull out 4x 5/4 creatures with haste and flying in a single turn.
