Rakdos Cackler Discussion

Pethrax on Say goodbye, as we dance with the devil tonight...

First, I love the theme. I have always loved the flavor Devils have had in MTG, and I'm glad you found something to make it work.

Second, some suggestions. 20 lands means playing with a lower curve. Artillerize is a no go. Swap that sucker for Fling. With the exception of Rakdos Cackler and Hellrider (who you wouldn't want to fling anyways) Fling does an equal or better job. It allows you to Impetuous Devils AND Fling in the same turn in case the opponent has a pinger or some form of removal.

Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded. Flavor yes, useable, no. This planeswalker is meant for a longhaul, not a quick RDW like you are building. Shared Animosity however is DOPE with all the devilish flavor you've packed in. Definitely swap these two around, and if I may, make it a two of and cut 1 copy of Curse of Stalked Prey, which is really only good on the early setup turns.

Try putting more 1 CMC creatures such as Rakdos Cackler, and taking out your creatures that take a lot of mana, like Excruciator, and seeing how that works

Also, it seems like you'd need more lands that enter untapped, like Dragonskull Summit or Blood Crypt

You could also replace Rakdos Carnarium with Rakdos Signet, if that's more your speed

Hope this helps!

Logics on Boros Aggro Deck

1 month ago

Hey. I like where you're trying to get to with the deck, but as far as the modern format goes, this deck will not line up well. Let's get into why for a little bit.

For starters, aggro decks want to be off the ground much faster than your deck is capable of. I would suggest you play around 12+ 1 mana creatures, to guarantee that you start off quick. Cards like Monastery Swiftspear, Champion of the Perish, Goblin Guide, Figure of Destiny, Judge's Familiar, Legion Loyalist, Rakdos Cackler, Stromkirk Noble, or Thraben Inspector could all be reasonable, depending how much you want to spend.

Secondly you need lands that enter untapped. Battlefield Forge is a reasonable option, with Sacred Foundry and Arid Mesa being the best, but ultimately most expensive options.

I would also take any cards that cost more than 3 mana out of the deck. You want to hit the ground fast, and kill them before they can react. I would also cut Renegade Map because doing that turn 1 in modern can make it impossible for you to ever applyu pressure for the rest of the game. I would find a way to put 4 Lightning Bolts and some number of Lightning Helixs in your deck, as well as going up to 4 Boros Charm. Path to Exile is also an excellent card, but runs a bit more money.

Here's an average of how many cards you may expect of each kind in the deck:

25-29 Creatures, 19-21 Lands, 9-11 Spells, 1-2 Enchantments

Hopefully this helped a little bit. I have been playing modern a while now, and like yourself, love deckbuilding.

The link above is a wonderful tool for deckbuilding. You can narrow down a search and look up any card ever printed for magic. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me, I'll try to help any way I can. To tag me in the post just put 2 square brackets around my name on either side (ex. [ [ Logics ] ] but with no spaces).

OOoo nice! I could definitely see myself throwing a Sire Of Insanity in. I love demons, and I love discard. As for Smallpox, I feel like it might set me back, considering I rely on getting Rakdos Cackler out early with a Fists of the Demigod for some heavy early damage (or block). I will definitely play test it a bit and see how it goes!

I'm confused about the german phrase in the deck name.

The deck looks pretty fast. Lightning Helix seems an obvious addition. A card i really like in my boros deck is Skyknight Legionnaire. A smaller Mantis Rider without vigilance but only two-coloured is still a great card. Also (it doesn't fit your deck title) Rakdos Cackler is great for boros.

Pretty cool tribal deck. I like it. Take my +1.

It it weren't standard, Rakdos Cackler would be an awesome 1-drop.

I would appreciate if you took a look at a tribal deck of mine: My snake deck (that title took me two weeks...)

Ok for 2 platers you can afford to get a bit more aggressive. This may sound obvious but you are going to want to unload the 20 damage you need to win as quickly as possible. To that end there are 2 things to keep in mind:

1) keep cmc low: cards like Grave Betrayal are nice but at 7 mana your opponents life total should be relatively low and you would rather have direct damage or more creatures to finish them off. Cards like Vile Requiem that arent useful into late game are also iffy

2) your life total is irrelavent. The longer the game goes on the less likely aggressive decks will win. As such don't fell bad about paying some life.

On that note you will want cards like Bitterblossom to provide a stream of creatures to beat down with and cards like Phyrexian Arena can keep your hand full.

here are cheap creatures to beat face with: Carnophage, Diregraf Ghoul, Firedrinker Satyr, Goblin Guide, Jackal Pup, Vampire Lacerator, Rakdos Cackler, Ash Zealot, Bloodghast, Blood Scrivener, Crimson Muckwader, Dark Confidant, Dauthi Slayer, Hellspark Elemental, Keldon Marauders, Rakdos Shred-Freak,Spike Jester, Young Pyromancer, Shambling Remains, Hell's Thunder, Anathemancer. I'm not saying you need to include all those cards but cards like that are nice. I's worth noting that they are efficient for their mana cost which is where aggressive decks want to be. The game plan can be attacking with cheap creatures and finishing them off with burn.

This means you want your lands to be able to come in untapped. assuming you don't want to buy a Badlands, there are still other lands that can tap for both colors and come in utapped like Blood Crypt, Dragonskull Summit, Blackcleave Cliffs, Sulfurous Springs. If you have in your deck the fetchlands (Bloodstained Mire/Polluted Delta/Wooded Foothills/Verdant Catacombs/Marsh Flats/Arid Mesa/Scalding Tarn) you can always fetch for your one-of blood crypt.

You can throw in hand disruption like Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Hymn to Tourach, Blightning but i'd keep the amount relatively low.

Sign in Blood/Night's Whisper can also refill your hand

Price of Progress/Smash to Smithereens are also ways of dealing damage

Burst Lightning is a strictly better shock.

Sorry if this was long but I hope this helped. I think your deck is a good start but just needs to be a bit faster.
