Snap157 on Rakdos; Burn It Down

1 day ago

Alrighty then let's get you all set!

You've got some big things and that's not bad with your commander, but you'll need some cheaper burn spells if Rakdos can really work. With that being said, Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, Bump in the Night, and Rift Bolt are your best friends. As for land base, try to shy away from basics, but add in as many rakdos duals that don't come in tapped as possible. I'll get you started down below.

While using rakdos, keep in mind that he takes away only colorless mana, so huge eldrazi such as Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Desolation Twin and It That Betrays can all go out for free if you play it right.

It's also important to keep in mind that the ability only impacts creatures, so super expensive things like Din of the Fireherd, Subterranean Tremors don't belong.

Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:

replace with:

With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!

Nekusar's damaging ability is superb at ruining the whole table at once with Wheel of Fortune effects, look up other Nekusar lists for those because I'm not super familiar with them. Teferi's Puzzle Box is a good include along with Kami of the Crescent Moon. Feel free to throw in other good stuff constant damage cards like Mogis, God of Slaughter, Sulfuric Vortex, and Kaervek the Merciless to keep your opponents floored even when Nekusar is off board.

Be careful about including Notion Thief though, while it may seem good it's limiting the amount of card draw for your opponents which limits all the damage they take, and it can cause you to draw too many cards and have to discard a ton or even deck yourself out. That being said it's a good early game card to keep your own draw up.

Sounds to me like you're wanting more of a punisher deck. Mogis, God of Slaughter would give you access to black and other pain spells like Polluted Bonds, Painful Quandary, Bloodchief Ascension ect. Also offers more draw and more control.

Otherwise to really screw over control decks, Mono-red excels at mass land destruction. Couple that with "damned if you do, damned if you don't" type spells like Spellshock, Manabarbs. This will also work well with Mogis. Purphoros is built to be all in and fast. If Purphoros gets out early enough then control decks may have a rough time stopping him. Especially with Price of Glory, MLD, Stoneshaker Shaman and Citadel of Pain, ect.

Hey Pataflip! After looking at the deck for awhile, I've come up with a few suggestions. If you're going to splash white, definitely add Path to Exile. It's just too good of a removal spell to pass up in a white deck. I would cut Smallpox completely honestly. It just doesn't fit with the deck and there aren't really any synergies with sacrificing your own stuff. The other route you could take is to cut white completely and just go B/R Midrange/Control. I threw together a list here --> Black Moon Midrange that you can take a look at to get some suggestions from. I tried to use some of the cards you wanted to play with, like Mogis, God of Slaughter, but others were just to slow for Modern, such as Call the Bloodline. I hope this helps!

Here are just some suggestions you might like: Key to the City, Cover of Darkness, Necrogen Mists, Dark Deal, Cunning Lethemancer, Avaricious Dragon, Sire Of Insanity, Metallic Mimic, and maybe addMogis, God of Slaughter as the honorary Minotaur god.

I'd put in lots of bleeder effects. Mogis, God of Slaughter is fun to use and Erebos, God of the Dead stops life gain. Omen Machine forces people to play cards from the top of their decks.
