Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hello, I'll try my luck in cutting the list down. I would suggest to add Emrakul, the Promised End to the maybeboard just because. IT seems there are a lot of 2 drops and 1 ofs. I would throw Dreadbore into the side. Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy do the same thing at instant speed. Speaking of which maybe put those cards at a 2:2 split. I like Assassin's Trophy but the extra land may hurt plus Abrupt Decay pretty much does the same thing, can't be countered, and it has yet to be seen if the converted mana cost restriction hurts the card.
Down to 67. Some cards are pretty costly you can restrict yourself to whatever you can get at the time being so for now cut expensive cards until you get them and by the time you can get them you probably playtested enough to see if you need that card or not.
Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is just discarding a card and doing damage. Good card but doesn't really feel like the value you are looking for. You are digging and finding removal spells. I would put this card in the side.
Down to 65, Scavenging Ooze would be good against an aggro deck to gain life and such otherwise do you exile cards in your graveyard? Doesn't seem too good with the plan of having things in the graveyard to Grim Flayer and getting it back with Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Speaking of which the 6 drop slots have 2 1 ofs. I would go with a 2 of of Tasigur, the Golden Fang and put the other card in side for now.
You might also get away with cutting 1 land as long as you're the only one playing the deck. Not sure how many cards we are at but I really like the deck

fasmith718 that's sweet to hear you killed it at a paper event! I've been competing on MTGO and doing decent. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper has been a popular discussion point in that discord that I shared in the description. I, personally, am not a fan of planeswalker cards, but that's the aggro in me. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper is good as a recurring grave exile threat, and as a small cmc creature threat. However, Kaya's Guile can be at instant speed, adds to grave for Bedlam Reveler and can force opponent to sacrifice an expensive creature (which has come in hand against Primeval Titan, Gurmag Angler, Bedlam Reveler, and other big creatures we find it difficult to remove at instant speed. As for the synergy with Leyline of the Void, I agree that that could close out games really well IF opponent lets Kaya, Orzhov Usurper get there. Generally, you don't judge a planeswalker based on ultimate alone, but you do bring up very strong points. If you like the synergy, and it works for you, keep it! Keep reporting back to us on how it works for you. Also, as for Chalice of the Void, I usually use Kolaghan's Command or Wear when I know opponent uses it. Usually, Mardu Pyromancer can work at the 2 or 3 cmc range really well, until artifact hate is found. Opponent usually doesn't have 6 mana super early to use Chalice of the Void to counter 3cmc spells.
YamishiTheWickedOne there are new Rakdos lists that use Lightning Skelemental, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, Dreadhorde Arcanist, and Seasoned Pyromancer to absolutely blaze through opponents. I think I've generally seen them forgo to also threaten with Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon. They are somewhat susceptible to early interaction and grave hate, so that's why I've kept my list this way. That being said, Unearth doesn't work here super well, since most creatures are not 3 cmc or lower pre-sideboard. I actually just did a league and I found myself not needing more card draw. I had plenty of threats and just had to "toolbox" and figure out which I needed to cast at that moment.
Thank you for your comments! Please feel included and encouraged to critique and suggest anything else to the deck, or even the primer to make it better! :)

When it comes to big finisher against Control, I'd recommend Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger if you can afford it. Not only it can serve as a 2-drop spell & sacrifice trigger for Devil, but also it keeps coming back thanks to Escape mechanic in case of removal or board wipe. God-Eternal Bontu is good too, so that would be my second choice. It's a great finisher having Devil in play and sacrificing all the permanents into opponent face! Of course if it manages to hit the battlefield.

Darkewarrior Thanks! I still need to get the huge Maybe list added... But I’m pretty happy with the synergies of the build. Dropping/Claiming a turn 3 Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger with Hushbringer in play feels so crazy strong.

Super sweet list. My friend plays a lot of Grixis control and we've speculated on Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger since it came out. Everyone has been overreacting about Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath so it's good to see the stronger of the two finally get it's time to shine. I've played lots of Esper control sometimes splashing red for The Royal Scions and the card is much stronger in reality than it looks like it would be on paper. I'm not quite convinced on Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker yet but I played it back in the day and it does seem playable. This list is super spicy so dm me if you need any playtest help. I know what it's like to play on a budget, I'm still in high school and fetches don'y buy themselves.

Mainboard Ideas: Swap Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker for Kolaghan's Command. Maybe consider trimming 1/4 Blood Crypts to add a fourth Polluted Delta to help the Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger escape plan.
