Gore-House Chainwalker Discussion

nobu_the_bard on Why Does WotC Not Use ...

Is this the Sen Triplets vs Breya, Etherium Shaper question? Why do the triplets get to be wizards but not Breya?

Maro has given a couple of reasons for this on his blog thing. I don't know that he's ever done an article about it. The main reason he's given seems to be because they need to conserve space to make translating into non-English languages easier. Most other languages are less concise.

Example: Gore-House Chainwalker has the French name Marcheur de chanes de la Halle aux viscres

Since the deck doesn't have any 1 drops, maybe you could add a few more taplands like Rakdos Guildgate to help with the color requirements.

Or, you could add something like Rakdos Cackler to have something to do on turn one. Actually the unleash creatures in general would be a good addition to this list. I would suggest dropping Child of Night as it is pretty underwhelming in an aggro deck. Also, Madcap Skills would be a good replacement for Infernal Scarring

Some other budget cards to consider: Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Gore-House Chainwalker, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, Cryptborn Horror, Hellspark Elemental, Brimstone Volley

I like the idea. +1

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! WHY ARE YOU PLAYING LIGHTNING STRIKE!!!!!!!!!! MAKE THOSE LIGHTNING BOLTS IMMEDIATELY NO MATTER THE COST!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS NO COMPARISON BETWEEN THEM AND NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!!!


So, once you fix that bolt issue, I'm a little afraid I've been misleading you in terms of what you want to be playing. If you want to be playing full out aggro, then Gruul aggro is almost certainly better. Fact of the matter is that Rakdos just doesn't have the cards to build a playable budget aggro. But, fear not! Because although Rakdos might not have a turn 3 or consistent 4 kill in it, it does have great disruption and an unstoppable turn 5 or occasionally 6 kill. If you want to build a hyper aggro designed for a turn 3 or 4 kill, then switch to Gruul where you get Ghor-Clan Rampager, Burning-Tree Emissary, and a pile of other nasties that can win more quickly. But if you want to play Rakdos, switch over to a slightly slower but very disruptive shell. Make your creature base something like Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, Rakdos Cackler, Gore-House Chainwalker, and Dead Reveler for your unleash cards, then support it with Spike Jester, Bloodsoaked Champion if you can afford it, and other 1-drop 2 power creatures. Then run 4 Duress, 4 spot removal, 4 bolt, 4 Bump, 2-4 Madcap Skills, and 2 Blightning. I have no idea if it'll be better or worse than the current deck, but what you're trying to do right now feels like a bad idea.

Good luck!
