Does the following combo work the way I think it does (in a 4-player game)?

Rakdos, Lord of Riots + 4 damage + Ancestral Statue + Crypt Ghast/any Extort + K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth = infinite casts from Statue, Extorting on each cast for a cost of 2 life, to drain and gain 3 life from opponents. Repeat until GG.

toastySmorc I'm not doing Doomsday combo.

My primer may not have suggested otherwise, but it also didn't have a doomsday combo. It's K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth if i was going to play doomsday it would already be in there.

The things you said about spells being redundant, and cards not being necessary, show that you don't understand the deck. Which if i actually finished the primer and cleaned it up might be easier.

Your saying that Golos is very safe and that he is a huge target at your table. I feel like those are opposites... To me he seems exactly like a high risk high reward.

Some other potential options for you:

Heidar, Rimewind Master - This is neither high risk nor high reward but it is very snowy.

Chulane, Teller of Tales - I never would have thought of this but he actually seems like he would be pretty solid if you look at this page

The theme looks pretty neat but there doesn't seem to be a lot of support which makes me sad. There is a page for it in the Themes section of EDHrec. Maybe that will help? I saw K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth on that page but didn't see a lot of snow on the page for him...

Hey, Vindictive Vampire is a unique aristocrat because it does damage not loss of life to opponents. If you equip/enchant Vindictive with a source of infect then any time it does damage to an opponent that damage is poison counters. With the aristocrat strategy Vindictive with infect can kill your opponents fast and Vindictive is still a good card without infect.

With the $400+ budget consider including more cards that are good with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth ?

Necropotence is black's best source of repeatable card draw in Commander. Since you start with 40 life then you can put a ton of cards into your hand and if you have Reliquary Tower on the battlefield keep them. Necro is busted with Phyrexian mana because for 6 life you can cast it for free.

Necropotence and Citadel interaction is excellent because you can see the top card of your library with Citadel and choose to activate Necro to remove the land from the top of your library. Then when you hit a nonland card you can cast it for free with life with Citadel. Citadel is also busted with Phyrexian mana because then it's not six mana it's three and 6 life.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, already been suggested, but Vilis is amazing with Erebos. It's also amazing with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth because then you're drawing cards when paying Phyrexian mana (life) for black spells you cast. Vilis is a big upgrade for Harvester of Souls .

Some other upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice overall concept, but I think you can be doing a lot more slugging :)

Harsh Mentor , Zo-Zu the Punisher , Ankh of Mishra , Spellshock can be more repeatable damage to your opponents and these cards are good in a large variety of deck matchups. Spellshock and Mentor can alone shut down infinite combos. Torbran, Thane of Red Fell makes Mogis do 4 damage instead of 2 each turn and he's good with other sources of damage especially Manabarbs since 3 damage is a lot more than 1 damage. Torbran and Loyal Subordinate with Mogis can increase the bleeding of your opponents.

Cards also can do damage to you which is good draw with Vilis, Broker of Blood and Vilis is busted with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth . Sire Of Insanity can be a backbreaking effect in multiplayer Commander and it goes with the idea of gaining turns to bleed out your opponents. Sire is good with Bloodchief Ascension . Vilis and Sire are worth including a small reanimation package with some enablers to cheat them onto the battlefield.

Smoke is an underrated disruptive card for red. Not only is good to stop lots of attackers, but also mana dorks since an opponent can only untap one of them.

Good luck with your deck.

The last few sets have given some very interesting mono-color commanders. Obviously cards like Urza, Lord High Artificer , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Emry, Lurker of the Loch , and Torbran, Thane of Red Fell are all standouts amidst a sea of Legendary creatures. But I'm a fan of the underdog. So I'm curious how people would build the following if starting from scratch (incl Theros Beyond Death if you'd like) on the following commanders: Massacre Girl , Fblthp, the Lost , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Gargos, Vicious Watcher , or Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion .

I'm curious to see what people come up with!

Cool deck i like it, ever thought of adding K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth and Font of Agonies , they both work very well with each other. Every time you pay life to activate a black mana symbol you get that many counters and then you can start removing them to shoot down opponents creatures.
