Currently It's solid, except from that it desperatly needs some form of instant-speed protection spells.

Fiendslayer Paladin, Knight of the White Orchid, Stone Haven Outfitter, Thalia, Heretic Cathar seems like the least interesting creatures, they might be taken out for trickery/removal

Good_knight Well I really don't know what you have so that makes things harder. I can offer some suggestions but that kind of depends on your meta. What is your playgroup like or are you talking about local game store? Do you play 1v1 or more?

If your 1v1 I suggest more spot removal. This should help you buy time to get your engine online. There are a ton of cheap options as white and black are good for this. If you have a local game store near buy, you might be able to do get these pretty easy. Afterlife, Swords to Plowshares, Blazing Hope, Crib Swap, Mortify, Profane Procession (this would be a good card for this deck even when you move beyond it simple trickets). Unmake, Walk the Plank, Go for the Throat. You get the idea.

Ok so some ideas for improving your creature pool. I tried to keep this pretty cheap. Dauntless Bodyguard, Chieftain en-Dal, Fiendslayer Paladin, Kinsbaile Cavalier, Knight of Dusk (A great cheap card for this deck. Just make sure you always have the mana up to destroy. Since it can be played at instant speed you can kill their creature after blockers are declared and damage is done. This is one of the reasons you should wait until second main to play nonessential spells. Lightwielder Paladin, Knight of Sursi, Mirror Entity, Pentarch Paladin.

Some enchantments to help out: Glorious Anthem, Behind the Scenes, Archetype of Courage, Archetype of Finality, Brave the Sands, Intimidation, Knighthood.

Artifacts and lands: Whip of Erebos, Fellwar Stone, Rupture Spire, Path of Ancestry Unclaimed Territory . If you want to splurge a little bit get an Isochron Scepter and put something like Go for the Throat on it.

This are just suggestions. Take all or some. On August 10th the new preconstructed Commander decks come out. In the past these have been pretty awesome for right out of the box. You can always tailor make them. They are normally worth well over the MSRP.

Also don't let the prices here scare you too much. They are just a generalization. You could go to tcgplayer and get better values. Even after you choose, they can optimize your cart to get a lower value.

The swords are awesome, but they are slow. Initially I was used to run the 4 swords, but modern is a pretty fast format and most of the time I didnt have enough time to use them. Sword of Feast and Famine is not the best sword for this deck because I already have the playset of Mirran Crusader.

Blessed Alliance is nice and I run 2 copies on my SB. They dont worth mainboard because it is weak on my bad matchups, and Fiendslayer Paladin helps against burn and other aggro decks :)

@ zombob57:

Fiendslayer Paladin is definitely the weaker of the two cards (except with respect to the art — that art is awesome), so I agree with you fully on that point.

Helm of the Host has a few cute interactions here but you’re right that it’s a massive mana hog. It’s pretty neat with Scourge of Valkas and somewhat so, too, with Adriana, Captain of the Guard and Utvara Hellkite, but those interactions are so absurdly mana intensive that when we discuss them we are treading into the realm of 360 no-scoping and have ceased to discuss practical, viable Magic play. If this were an Aurelia, the Warleader deck, then yes, it’d be a viable wincon in its own right, but it’s not an “I win” piece here. It’s just a slow, cute card that’ll likely be shut down before doing anything broken. So yeah, probably more practical to go with the extra gas route. Less likely to lose if I keep drawing cards to play rather than relying on Helm of the Host exclusively to carry me if I draw it (not to mention it’s simply a dead card sometimes).

Yeah, big daddy Rakdos is such a fun deck. Competitive? Nope. Fun? Oh yeah. It’s just a blast going crazy and running so many ridiculously swingy effects. Check my list if you feel so inclined. You’ve been a big help for this list, I’m sure you’ll have good ideas for that one. I basically only run four Commander decks these days due to limits on funds and free time — Jori En, Ruin Diver, Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero, Rakdos the Defiler, and this one here. I actually don’t hate Green, I just haven’t got a deck with that color for some reason these days. Maybe I’ll do a Ghalta, Primal Hunger stompy/Green devotion list one of these days.

I have mad respect for you for having a rakdaddy defizzler deck. I have built and took apart mine so many times, to date one of my favorite commanders.

Alrighty a different cut for the sun might be Helm of the Host. I don't really see a bunch of etb effects or legendary critters to abuse in here. It is a really cute interaction with puresteel paladin if you think you can reliably get it online, but honestly card draw seems more important. Gas > another fat ass. Dragon Tempest may be another card on the chopping block if need be, but it is a really cute card. Lathliss was practically made for this deck because every dragon equals another 10 damage on the board with Sylvia out.
Mirror Entity is super good, but I would rather cut you cut Fiendslayer Paladin for it since Mirran Crusader can hold swords super well
