Rakdos Carnarium Discussion

I like, but I think it's trying to be a bit too fast and all in, would 100% cut Akki Drillmaster because a 3 mana haste enabler that dies to most removal in pauper isn't great, Gurmag Angler is a good beater and occational reanimation target. Divest and Exhume do not go well together, I would replace divest with Duress as you are attempting to take their interaction (counters/removal) and you already play the biggest creatures in pauper. I would also cut some number of removal spells for a full 4 Shred Memory as it it copies 5-8 of Exhume and is great in the mirror. Final point would be adding the last Bloodfell Caves and maybe a Rakdos Carnarium or Evolving Wilds / Ash Barrens as mana screw is a real problem with this deck

Hey, Sage of Fables works well with Marchesa, Viscera, Haruspex, Disciple of Bolas , Puppeteer Clique , Sower of Temptation , etc. It also can be a draw engine by removing +1/+1 counters from your creatures.
To help the less than ideal manabase consider Trophy Mage just to tutor for Chromatic Lantern ? Or she can get Ashnod's. Consider Brainstorm , Ponder , Impulse , Read the Bones to help to find lands or other cards? Another way to help the manabase is with more mana rocks Rakdos Signet , Izzet Signet , Dimir Signet , Fellwar Stone .
Lands that won't break the bank to consider adding: Exotic Orchard , Choked Estuary , Foreboding Ruins , Grixis Panorama , Ash Barrens , Dimir Aqueduct , Rakdos Carnarium , Izzet Boilerworks , Reliquary Tower , Smoldering Marsh , Sunken Hollow , Shivan Reef . Most of these lands have good interaction with basic lands since there's a lot of them here and I suggest adding more in place of the lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Urborg Volcano . The Bounce lands (Aqueduct, Carnarium, Boilerworks) work well with basic lands and other lands that can ETB untapped.
Consider this budget manabase:
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Grixis Panorama
- Ash Barrens
- Crumbling Necropolis
- Guildmages' Forum
- Opal Palace
- Evolving Wilds
- Choked Estuary
- Foreboding Ruins
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Rakdos Carnarium
- Izzet Boilerworks
- Reliquary Tower
- Smoldering Marsh
- Sunken Hollow
- Shivan Reef
- 6x Island
- 8x Swamps
- 6x Mountain
If you like some of suggestions I offer help to make cuts. By the way there's 2x Skullclamp here ;)
Good luck with your deck.

Some cheap lands I suggest instead of Vivid Crag , Vivid Grove , Darigaaz's Caldera and some basic lands: Blighted Woodland and Myriad Landscape ramp you. Bojuka Bog hoses graveyard players. Golgari Rot Farm , Gruul Turf , Rakdos Carnarium and Jund Panorama give you more land-drops. Sheltered Thicket and Canyon Slough can be easily fetched or brought back from the graveyard after cycled. Cinder Glade and Smoldering Marsh are also fetchable. When Standard rotates, Dragonskull Summit , Rootbound Crag , Woodland Cemetery , Blood Crypt , Stomping Ground and Overgrown Tomb will be way cheaper.

bushido_man96 as for Amulet of Vigor yes your absolutely right i did only put in there to speed up my tap lands but with 12 pure Taplands Temple of Silence , Sandsteppe Citadel , Rakdos Carnarium , Orzhov Basilica , Opulent Palace , Nomad Outpost , Izzet Boilerworks , Gruul Turf , Golgari Rot Farm , Dimir Aqueduct , Boros Garrison and Azorius Chancery , and 6 ETB tap unless lands Blood Crypt , Godless Shrine , Isolated Chapel , Overgrown Tomb , Sacred Foundry and Watery Grave think me having Amulet of Vigor is justified.

Give this episode of EDHRECast a listen. It's all about 75% decks with a focus on the creator of the site's Xantcha deck.
As for specifics for your deck, the first card I would include Koskun Falls . It's the only Ghostly Prison effect in black, and it will help you defend. Well, there's also No Mercy , so give that a whirl, as well.
Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are interesting tech. I've never seen those cards before! If your goal is just to make Xantcha unblockable, though, Cover of Darkness is much cheaper (gotta love old cards that effect other people's creatures!), and I doubt you'll get much blowback from other Minions on the table.
I also see a Nekusar, the Mindrazer kind of thing going on. You'll probably want some wheels to supplement that strategy. A few good budget ones are Khorvath's Fury , Incendiary Command , and Reforge the Soul .
As for cuts, Cabal Stronghold is pretty iffy in a deck running 11 Basic Swamps. Temple of the False God is awful. You're effectively running 35 lands, because Temple is a free 4-mana rock, not a land. I honestly despise this card. Run Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , or Hedron Archive , instead, and add in a couple more lands. I would put in some budget fixing lands, such as Rakdos Carnarium and Tainted Peak . I don't like Bubbling Muck much. You're not running that many swamps, so something like Mana Geyser would be much more effective if you need big mana. I'm also not really sure what Harmless Offering is doing in this deck.
Those are just my initial impressions. I'd also check out the Xantcha page at EDHREC to see how others are building. You can click the budget tab in the top right to help stay under $150! Good luck!
