Two cuts to go... If I remove Heartless Hidetsugu + Furnace of Rath , should I also remove Fortune Thief ? That at least gives me a slot to fill. Opinions?

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent fits so well into this theme, and has a lower CMC than a lot of the cards on this list, plus looks really fun to have go around the table. I hear she also makes a surprisingly good commander. I like her over the more expensive Crimson Honor Guard too. Furnace of Rath is functionally similar to Wound Reflection and cheaper to cast, just a thought.

Ankh of Mishra is incredibly punishing as well, I saw you have Polluted Bonds on the maybe list. Ankh is a lot less CMC and functionally does the same thing.

This deck seems rather cruel to your opponents but I guess that's the point of Rakdos ;) good luck!

So I had a bad idea the other day that I'm half convinced might work. The idea is to fill the board with tokens, sac one to any of the numerous sac outlets, and- with a damage doubling source like Furnace of Rath , flash in the general, Archangel Avacyn  Flip for a fair amount of damage. Now there's a 6/5 beater on the board and all of my dudes survived the Conflagration thanks to her front side effect. Buff the tokens with Intangible Virtue and/or Glorious Anthem and the buffed army meets little resistance. So here's my question, has anyone run a deck like this and what was your experience? Anyone play against it and how was it?

cdkime is onto something with his deception of Boros. Resources denial is key in big mana formats like EDH and decks that can do that to their opponents while remaining untouched do well. This is why Rubblehulk is so great. Destroy their stuff, make it hurt, and use stuff like Furnace of Rath or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight to amplify the effects.

Why is this better than a more regular kind of burn deck? As far as I can tell, you'll run out of rituals and x-spells somewhat earlier than your opponent runs out of life (unless you copy spells with Pyromancer's Goggles - but playing a 5 cmc mana rock has its own problems). Furnace of Rath is great... when it works. It works when you draw damage spells... you have nothing apart from your regular draws to smoothen your draws... and you have a lot of really disappointing top deck draws in the late game...

Love the synergy between Furnace of Rath / Dictate of the Twin Gods and those ping effects. +1!
