Moment of Craving Discussion

Hey IWantYouBad! I like the thoughts behind the deck, but I think if you're going down the discard route, you would be better off playing to win with value then looking to discard your opponent for game. For this reason, I would definitely go with The Eldest Reborn as a four of, in place of Raiders' Wake as it is a 3 for 1 advantage, that won't be dead weight in the control matchup. I'd also get to 4 Ravenous Chupacabras, that card is automatically a 2 for one if your opponent has any creature on the field. The aggro red deck may also give you fits, I would recommend three Moment of Cravings main deck or sideboard to give you extra time to out-value them. If Golgari is a worry for you, I'd look to switch out Lightning Strike for Lava Coil (this also matches up really well against Rekindling Phoenix. Since we don't have any shock lands in rakdos, I would recommend splashing a third color (if this is looking to be competitive, if it's just for fun, then you don't want to waste that much money), it will actually make your mana base better. I would personally go with blue for access to more control like Syncopate, and card draw like Chemister's Insight. Finally, it's a budget breaker but Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip would be a stud in this deck, as he is a 2 for one flying 4/4 that is an easy win condition if not answered. If you don't want to break the bank, then Hostage Taker at the four spot is a good value as well (provided your opponent does not have an answer). Anyways, great deck! I've been playing something similar in MTG Arena and it does work!

Hey Valiant Centipede! Cool deck! I run something very similar (don't know how to link it or I would). Gotta say, Moment of Craving is turning into an all star for me against the mono red burn, I'd also consider at least one more Ritual of Soot in either the main or side board, as aggro decks will give this deck fits if it is not careful (trust me on that, I figured it out the hard way). Great deck though! I love that you included Etrata, the Silencer, I may have to look into that.

Hey, you should consider trading your Karns for more Lyras and Resplendent Angels. When talking about life gain Lyra is in the conversation as one of the best sources in Standard. The combination of Lyra and Resplendent is a game winning interaction that also can gain you a ton of life. In my opinion these two Angels do more for the deck's strategy than Karn.
Consider Moment of Craving and Revitalize? Low mana cost instant ways to gain life. These spells seem good with Dawn for four mana gain 3 life and draw two cards or do -2/-2 to a creature, gain 2 life and draw a card.
Good luck with your deck.

I've actually had Etrata, the Silencer in the deck before, but I found that I didn't really want her over Ravenous Chupacabra and Hostage Taker vs control, but vs aggro I liked her for the 3/5 body, but I never really attacked with her.

Honestly I think you have enough creatures against red aggro. Red in general has a harder time dealing with enchantments and instants/sorceries, so that's where I would look for cards. I think the answer lies in defensive two drops. Moment of Craving and Seal Away do a nice job hazing agressive decks, and higher drops like Settle the Wreckage or Cleansing Nova could help round out your curve.

Quasiduplicate sounds really nice with the ETB triggers. I am kind of wary of using cards with double blue mana costs, since this deck is mostly black and the surveil + draw on my 2 and 3 drops makes this deck very consistent. I fear that having UU could make this less consistent.
So far I've used this deck only in magic arena. It deals very well with everything midrange and combo, but is very reliant on good draws (Ritual of Soot, Moment of Craving, Chupacabra) vs aggro. It also has no answer to Carnage Tyrant and Vine Mare, so The Eldest Reborn might be necessary in the sideboard depending on meta. I've also replaced some murders with Vraska's Contempt to deal with Planeswalkers.
