Murderous Compulsion Discussion

Rakdos decks are the best kind of decks to abuse hellbent and madness cards, not just in the "power at any cost" color themes, but the flavor and playstyle as well :p


Anthem of Rakdos

Gibbering Descent

Infernal Tutor

Asylum Visitor

Murderous Compulsion

Necrogen Mists

Bottomless Pit

It does seem hurtful at first, but trust me opponents will feel it a lot more especially if you just cast Oppression and pass turn to a storm, control, combo or tempo player or any blue player itll cripple them :p

To think like a madman, you must PLAY like a madman :p

Faith of the Devoted is a little bad cause you will not have mana after casting Malfegor especially if you do it for the second or third time. I know you have a lot of cycling land but I still do not think that it is worth it might suggest some targeted creature removal like Grisly Spectacle possibly...

otherwise other madness cards could be great Call to the Netherworld might be cool, Dark Withering, Murderous Compulsion

  1. Cut / Ribbons does 4 damage as well and costs 3-mana less, plus it has its aftermath making it useful in the graveyard.

  2. Murderous Compulsion is a little restrictive being a tapped creature. Unlicensed Disintegration and even Never / Return I believe are better options.

I appreciate the feedback, it helps me think about other options. Thank you!

Alchemist's Greeting and Murderous Compulsion are woth looking into for some more removal.

If i ever see a Minotaur deck and ignore him, it's because i'm possessed by some stupid spirit or something like that. They are my favorite tribe ever and Amonkhet bringing them back it's just amazing. I still want a Minotaur planeswalker (Maybe Sandruu?) card and I'm salty that Didgeridoo isn' going to be reprinted for modern any time soon :C

Did you try playing with some madness cards? maybe something like Fiery Temper or Murderous Compulsion? your deck does have some discard synergies, maybe not as much as the Vampires from SOI e EMN, but a few cards maybe are worthy?
