I'm surprised to not see Blightning in here. Not sure about Lightning Skelemental as this deck does seem more instant/sorcery focused. What do you think?

Thanks for the suggestion and +1 cyeRunner! I’ll consider Lightning Skelemental, but I think the focus should remain on burn and self life-loss to build up the Scourges and Shadows. I feel like Skelemental is better for Rakdos 8-Rack decks which focus on hand discard. I can imagine that deck running Scourges, 8-Rack, Bolts, and cards like Thoughtseize, Bitterblossom, Kolaghan's Command, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, etc.

If you are not satisfied with Death's Shadow you might give Lightning Skelemental a try, I am intrigued if it fits in your shell :)

Peoni: That's a really fun suggestion! I don't think I have enough cards to make that effect worth it, but the thought of using it is pretty entertaining. Though it's worth noting that Lightning Skelemental will still die at the end of the opponent's turn :)

One card I'm on the fence about right now is Scampering Scorcher, it gets three ETB triggers out of one card and is great with the lords but I'm having a tough time deciding what to take out. Currently leaning towards axing Mulldrifter, but not sure yet.

Sundial of the Infinite lol. I'm not sure if I'm serious or not, but hey, it turns Flickerwisp into straight up removal. It also lets you keep whatever you reanimate with Incandescent Soulstoke and Thunderkin Awakener, and you won't have to kill off your poor Lightning Skelementals anymore.

Like I said, this might be a joke, but it also might not be. :^)

Nice deck. I think 8Rack is a really fun deck to play too. You may want to take out Sedraxis Specter and put in Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger or Lightning Skelemental. Or have Nether Spirit as a one of. Defile can be good removal. Shrieking Affliction can be a good second copy of The Rack. It can also be helpful to take out Wishful Thinking. You could add Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage as a replacement for Liliana's Caress. A bit more general discard good be helpful too. Sorry if this is a lot. Hope it is helpful, have a good day. Also, add Mountains. Dead of Winter can work well as a board clear.
