As for Faceless Butcher, you can cast it just fine without a valid target for its ability, because its ability doesn't go on the stack while you're casting it. You cast the Butcher and, as long as no one else counters it or something, it will enter the battlefield. Then its ETB ability will trigger and you will attempt to choose a target for it. With no legal targets, the ability will "fizzle" and be removed from the stack, but the Butcher is still on the battlefield.

And in general, planeswalker abilities are written in such a way that you should always be able to activate a plus ability, even if you get no effect from it, so you can actually increase your planeswalker's loyalty. This is why you can target a player with no cards in hand for a discard ability, or target a tapped creature for a "tap target creature" ability, and so on. Planeswalkers like Garruk, Apex Predator will give you an alternate plus ability to use if one of them must absolutely have a valid target in order to be activated. One of the few that I can think of where this isn't true is Koth of the Hammer, where if there are no mountains on the battlefield, you can't actually use his plus ability. However, if there are mountains but they're all untapped, you can still use him because you can still "untap" a tapped mountain.

PIayswithFlRE, thanks for the reply and complement on my Angrath design.

As for your Planeswalkers for Rakdos, why not just ignite Neheb, the Worthy?

You can make it work by suggesting that he was as such a cunning and deadly warrior as Neheb, the Worthy that when Bolas killed him to turn him into Neheb, the Eternal it ignited his spark. But he was under Bolas' command until he left Amonkhet.

With Amonkhet in ruins, Neheb can now freely roam the multiverse. His goals and aspirations ar highly narrow due to being dead, giving us our first Zombie Planeswalker. Though, he is still a Minotaur for flavors sake. But the Lazotep carapace allows him to be powerful enough to have a real driving force.

Perhaps, in a similar mentality to Garruk, Apex Predator.

Neheb ultimately seeks that which he is now unable to obtain - death. And his warrior mentality draws others to be inspired and feared by him - giving you an excuse to go Minotaur Tribal or something and justification for abilities such as Enrage / Bloodthirst / Ferocious / etc.

Recall on Amonkhet, death was prized and sought after via the Trials. Imagine if you retained your mind after death.

Your entire life was seeking death at the hands of the gods to bask in their glory, and your efforts were rewarded with immortality.

It's actually a cruel and harsh punishment, in the minds of The Eternal.

So Neheb would be the perfect embodiment of Rakdos: Pure anguish driven by unadulterated hatred.

Oh and by the way, using Lifeblood Hydra as a manasink and immediately hitting it with Garruk, Apex Predator's -3 is hilariously awesome and really pisses people off ;)
