I personally don't feel the new Rakdos is competitive. If anyone can prove me wrong, cool. Either way, he is a lot of fun. What I did with mine is create a "Russian Roullete" themed deck. It's very casual, cheesy board wipes, and some of my own minions are not immune to Rakdos Roullete. He's a lot of fun. Here are some useful picks you might want to consider.

Conjurer's Closet , Skull Collector , Decoction Module , Erratic Portal , Oni of Wild Places ,

Basically, blink Rakdos. :) If you find any others, please let me know. Here is the link to my version.

Let's play Rakdos Roullette~

No graveyard recursion whatsoever, just a bunch of demons, some other useful critters. Some devils, imps. Somewhat refined draw, and a stupid amount of ramp. I saw the cost of Rakdos, and demons, and decided they needed to become affordable ASAP. Built for fun. It gets those demons out though, so you don't necessarily have to cut demons, in fact, because of Liliana's Contract being so cheap right now, I'd take advantage of that if you already haven't. Also, Revel in Riches ..... Running my version, you are basically playing Rakdos Roullette, again and again hehe. Mirror March looks interesting. I am considering Krark's Thumb for mine.

Be careful playing Painful Quandary! If you don't have a ton of discard to support that card, you can get targeted really fast. I run it in my Gonti's suicide hotline deck.

My Rakdos is either hilariously effective against something, or ridiculously ineffective. But, as a lover of board wipes, he is a ton of fun. I may consider Mirror March for my version, so thank you for sharing. Look through my creatures though! There are some fantastic demons that make the ramp worth it. I've got a pretty good ramp package too, so check that out as well.

I hope your version turns out well for you and what you're going for. Also, Bontu's Monument Herald's Horn Hazoret's Monument COST REDUCTION FOR DEMONS!

cdkime I did put in Krark's Thumb but I’m a little on the fence about Frenetic Efreet since wouldn’t you only get whatever’s the last trigger is since it would phase him out or kill him?

At the risk of stating the obvious, I'll post two basic cards every coin flip deck should have:

Frenetic Efreet generates infinite coin flips all by itself, so long as you stack all the activations on top of one another before passing priority.

Krark's Thumb is pretty nifty, for somewhat obvious reasons.

Revolves around seems pretty subjective. I'm more used to esper colors so I can't speak for what might be in red that would be interesting.

Paradox Haze would be an obvious choice. Then being able to copy that effect with Estrid's Invocation and Copy Enchantment would be obvious. Since the deck must incorporate an upkeep-based theme, Mind Unbound , As Foretold . Quest cards like Quest for Ula's Temple end up being resolved pretty quickly too.

As AnchroCity said, Krark's Thumb synergizes with the coinflip at upkeep. This could lead to potentially 3 wins per upkeep in terms of coinflips. In that case Chance Encounter might be pretty neat as a wincon.

Cards like decent into madness ends up having a factorial effect with the multiple upkeeps (1 counter, then 2, then 3, then 4 means 1+2+3+4 = 10 cards exiled on the first turn after its played) if I'm understanding the wording correctly.

This does kill cards with cumulative upkeep costs that aren't in fact benefits like the 3 you've chosen. Thats all I'm willing to think about it for now but it seems like it could be pretty neat.

Krark's Thumb seems like a pretty obvious include for the coin flipping.

Actually, I'm guessing it's Rakdos, the Showstopper that prompted the black splash. You might already know, but, in case you don't, since it's a common misconception, Rakdos doesn't work with Chance Encounter , since you never "win" a coin flip, having never called heads or tails. The tutors are nice to have, as well, but I would personally use Muddle the Mixture and Whir of Invention to grab Krark's Thumb and chain Mystical Tutor , Personal Tutor , or Dizzy Spell into Gamble . Long-Term Plans is also pretty easy to set up when you're drawing like crazy with Zndersplt.

I suppose nobody has an idea for this? Thinking of removing my other, weaker Chaos Deck before this one as well... I still need cuts, & given I'm not running what was Okaun, or even Zndrsplt now, I'll cut Krark's Thumb & Ral Zarek , & I only need to worry about 4 cuts afterward, unless Ral Zarek is still good to you guys, meaning I have 5 others to cut still...
