EleshNornsFs on Longest Turns?

I had a 4 minute turn while running Meren, just trying to plan ahead and figure out how to sacrifice and reanimate creatures between Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Viscera Seer, and Flesh-Eater Imp.

For instant speed sacrifice there's Carrion Feeder for one mana, and Flesh-Eater Imp which costs more but has infect so it can on occasion one shot someone. Then for more value from a sacrifice there's Stronghold Assassin which in this deck lets you take out two creatures, the one you took control of and any other of your choice. Then Sadistic Hypnotist is instant speed and makes them discard. Then for card draw there's Vampiric Rites a repeatable Altar's Reap and Costly Plunder is the same as Altar's Reap. And other card draw is Bushmeat Poacher and Smothering Abomination but that last one may kill some of your creatures by accident.

Infect. Do it. You know you wanna. Mutate a 6/6 onto Blighted Agent. Get some value out of that Ichor Rats and Viridian Corrupter. Eat a whole board with Flesh-Eater Imp. Dump your library into your graveyard, then make Corpse Cur and Otrimi bring both pieces back.

triproberts12 on Suggestions for Rakdos?

Oh, in that case, if you aren't super set on Rakdos, but are just trying to play RBx, I'd suggest going for a Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt infect deck. Mutating up an Ichorclaw Myr, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Flesh-Eater Imp, Ogre Menial, Phyrexian Crusader, etc. seems awesome with double strike. Or you can just hardcast Snappy and put a Grafted Exoskeleton or Phyresis on it.

I think this is an awesome deck! I do have a couple of suggestions though. the sacrifice outlets (Blasting Station, Altar of Dementia, AKA your wincons) are too few in the deck. Also, i would suggest maybe splashing a little black for maybe a Murderous Redcap for a win with any sac outlet at all. Flesh-Eater Imp is a good sac outlet and a wincon provided that you get the rest of the combo pieces. Also, between Noble Hierarch and Birds of Paradise you could probably throw in at least 2 Fabricate to get your sac outlets. Another card that's fun with this kind of deck is Chronozoa. Similar to Fabricate it wouldn't be impossible to just slide one or 2 into the deck, but chances are you wont need them. I was going to recommend Dark Depths but haha BANNED that was awhile ago i don't know why i didn't remember. My only suggestions are more sac outlets or some more ways to find them like Fabricate. Great and original idea, +1 from me!

Been doing some thinking and am a little bit more convinced that I should try out some of the cards y'all mentioned.

I had several games today and got some pretty good results. I won a good portion of them, and even when I didn't the deck still performed well. I bet a decent contributing factor was the fact that Yawgmoth hardly ever got so much as threatened with removal; unsure if the people there just don't run removal or never drew into them in all the games we played, but either way it's likely that they'll eventually wisen up to my gameplan and start doing a little bit more to disrupt me aside from constantly swinging at me.

I'm thinking of adding Viscera Seer , Phyrexian Ghoul , Flesh-Eater Imp , Reassembling Skeleton , and Skullclamp . Other than Doomed Dissenter , Dread Presence (iffy tbh), and Blood for Bones , though, I'm not sure what else would be a bearable cut.

Unstable Obelisk provides some ramp early game and can eventually be used to remove some threatening noncreature permanent.

Ritual of the Machine did some surprisingly decent work in protecting me by placing threats on my side of the field and then using them to win (Atarka with Phyresis lmao).

Cards like Myr Sire and Lazotep Reaver are hard to let go of because they do provide some good immediate value.

Any other suggestions for what could be some likely candidates for replacement?

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom

Don't forget Thraximundar and Warstorm Surge ...

Here are some houses:

Bloodtracker ... must have imo

Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?

Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone

Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone

Viscera Seer ... tier 1 version of Carrion Feeder

Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this

Treasonous Ogre ... seems good

Harvester of Souls ... + Damnation ?

Reef Worm ... endless worms

Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped

Drana, Liberator of Malakir ... yes... anything that lets you ignore the throne is amazing

Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+

Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes

Midnight Reaper ... yes

Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this

Goblin Bombardment ... yes

You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...

Ogre Slumlord

Overseer of the Damned

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Revel in Riches

If you count Merciless Executioner , Innocent Blood , etc, with wipes like Damnation , etc, you have 12 wipes and 5 removal... which is probably too much control.

To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...

Core Prowler ... maybe

Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out

Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice

Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet

...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.

Demons would also be pretty sweet:

Archfiend of Depravity ... wipe

Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice

Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice

Havoc Demon ... wipe

Indulgent Tormentor ... another Bloodgift Demon

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?

Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good

Lord of the Void ... betrayal

Malfegor ... wipe?

Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe

Ravenous Demon  Flip... sacrifice Marchesa or take the 9 to get off the throne?

Reaper from the Abyss ... removal

Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor

Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal

Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

Secondly, make custom categories. In my aristocrats deck, Lie, Steal, Cheat, and SURVIVE!, I separate these into

  • Sac Outlets: More on this in a moment
  • Sacrificial Lambs: Vindictive Lich is a prime example
  • Blood Artistry: I have access to four good ones
  • Mana Rocks: More on this in a moment
  • Card Draw: Dark Prophecy
  • Board Wipes: More on this in a moment
  • +1/+1 Counters: You don't have this synergy, but consider it the "cute interactions" section
  • Full Power: This is the section for your haymakers that end the game almost immediately. Mass reanimation like Command the Dreadhorde or Black Market go here.

Once you do that, you understand what gameplans you want the deck to adopt and what ones just don't fit. You finally see the level of consistency that your list offers.

You are running eight sac outlets, which is fine, but you're missing Carrion Feeder . Is Flesh-Eater Imp , a four mana outlet that gives an alternate wincon, really worth running?

You have four mana rocks in the entire deck, not counting Ashnod's and Phyrexian Altar. The odds of you having those early on in the game to ramp are extremely low. Talisman of Hierarchy , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , Thran Dynamo , Fellwar Stone . Run these and the clunkiness will be reduced. Oh, Black Market and Smothering Tithe are auto-inclusions.

Granted, I have no knowledge of your meta, but I do think that you could use a few more board wipes. Grave Pact , Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Damnation and Wrath of God oughta do the trick. Since budget is your concern, try Day of Judgment and Hour of Revelation .
