You thought about stuff like Crackleburr, or Knacksaw Clique? Infinite combos I'm sure with some of that stuff, like with Krark-Clan Stoker or something similar?

Plus Pyromancer's Goggles could be crazy.

Those are all great cards for the deck, but I'm building this as on theme as possible for casual play and none of these put -1/-1 counters on creatures. Well, save for Hateflayer, but I'm just not a fan of a 7mana creature with no immediate value.

I will expand the maybeboard tho for people who want a stronger version. Thanks

You've got plenty of ways to lay on the -1/-1 counters, but you need some hard removal to take of bigger stuff. Terminate should be included.

Rakdos Charm is a versatile tool that is highly effective against multiple types of decks (artifact, graveyard, tokens).

Vandalblast is super great. Use it turn 2 to counter a Sol Ring, or blow up all the mana rocks later.

Hateflayer is a powerful beater with synergy with your theme.

Dreadbore is another hard removal spell worth considering, especially since -1/-1 counters don't work against 'walkers.

Talisman of Indulgence should probably be included as another mana rock.

Some permanents (enchantments) are near-impossible for Rakdos colors to deal with, which is why Chaos Warp continues to be a valuable removal too.

Just for reference


Please describe to me, among the 4/5 cards listed in the combo, which one is allowing you to:

"Untap for U Mana"

Besides Hateflayer, there is no other way to untap Mairsil with the listed cards in the combo. I am unsure where you are getting an extra untap ability from, but it is not with the listed cards.

As described, this combo WOULD work if you had a way to discount the mana you were using. Add in Heartstone or Training Grounds and this combo DOES work:

Tap for UUUUse U for Quicksilver ability - refresh abilitiesUse UU to untap with Hateflayer - Quicksilver allows U mana to be used in place of any other color (training grounds makes it so its U, letting you make infinite mana if you cannot target a player for example)Mairsil now has the ability to tap again for UUU and can repeat the steps for an insta-kill

If Hateflayer is caged, its ability will only deal 4, not 5 damage, bringing your opponent down to 5 life, not 4, and therefore will require more than a single activation of either ability to finish them off.

As for mana rocks, keep in mind that they tap to generate mana, so exiling more than one would most likely be pointless. Try to get a cage counter on Gilded Lotus, and leave it at that.

Also, please mark an answer to remove this question from the unanswered queue, or otherwise ask if there's still unclear elements.
