Rakdos Carnarium Discussion

multimedia on Kess Combo

Hey, interesting start on a budget version of Kess.

Some cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting for these:


Baleful Strix is a two drop who draws a card when it ETB, that way you can blink it with Deadeye to draw many cards. When you assemble Deadeye + Drake for infinite mana then being able to infinite blink a creature who draws can draw your win condition or draw and cast all cards in your deck. It's possible you could have a win condition already on the battlefield or in hand or graveyard with Kess, but if not then infinite blinking Strix lets you draw it.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be a win condition with Deadeye + Drake. It's not opponent mill, it's better, it's opponent exile their libraries and with infinite mana you get to cast all your opponent's cards. Arcane Signet , Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet are some two drop mana rocks so you're not only relying on lands to have enough mana to cast cards.

I don't think you need to play so many creatures who recur an instant or sorcery because isn't that what Kess is for? That's the advantage of Kess, you get to cast an instant or sorcery from your graveyard on your turns, but once you resolve that spell is exiled. An exiled spell is no longer in your graveyard to recur to your hand. Archaeomancer is the only creature you want for this effect because you also have blink spells as well as Deadeye and creature recursion/reanimation spells for Archaeomancer.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Zagras and the Dethtouch Party

1 month ago

Hey, nice start on budget. Kyle_Winter gave you some good advice to help the party. My advice is to help the manabase, ramp and draw.

First, you don't need 42 lands, that's overkill for your deck. 36 lands should be fine. Consider cutting some lands for more ramp sources? Budget lands and ramp to consider adding:

Consider cutting some basic lands for these lands?


Ramp can be a problem with Rakdos because these colors lack lots of options, but one way to help to not miss land drops is to play low mana cost draw. Cards like these can replace ramp because for a low mana cost they can help to draw into lands or party members who then act like ramp to cast Zagras.

Repeatable draw sources are best in Commander because they can potentially give you value throughout the entire game. With Zagras cards that give you value who are party creatures or when you attack/do combat damage are options:

Oddsmaker and Mask are nice with Zagras because he has flying.


Some advice about game play. I would keep the mana curve very low because you want to assemble a party for Zagras as that's what makes Zagras a mana efficient and potentially good Commander. The lower the mana curve the easier it will be to have two or more party members on the battlefield to help to cast Zagras. In fact, for your deck I would end the curve at Dagger Caster and Drana, the Last Bloodchief as these are abilities and effects at the top that go well with Zagras. I would limit the four drops to very few.

Roving Keep is an example of a creature you don't need because it's high CMC and doesn't help the party or have interaction with Zagras. Zof Consumption is an example of a spell that you don't need even though if you want can play it as a tapped land. Consumption for six mana is not worth what it does.

I offer more advice about what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start upgrading the precon on a budget.

28 lands is not enough land for an avg. CMC of 3.4 which is high. I recommend 36 lands and adding Knight of the White Orchid. First strike with a two drop Human is good with +2 pump from Jirina. You want to take more advantage of Jirina who's a four drop anthem effect for Humans. This means you want to consistently be able to play more impactful one drops (Champion of the Parish)/two drops (Thalia's Lieutenant)/three drops (Frontline Medic) to attack with the turn you play Jirina.

Tribal creature strategies in Commander fold to board wipes. To combat this play more repeatable instant speed indestructible protection (Etchings of the Chosen), creature recursion (Phyrexian Reclamation), reanimation (Alesha, Who Smiles at Death) and noncreature repeatable sources of Humans (Outlaws' Merriment).

Hey, nice budget version of Brass.

Cards a $1 or less each to consider adding:

Lands

Pirates

Repeatable Draw

Evasion

Command Tower is one of the best lands for multicolored decks in Commander and it's $1. Pirates have to do combat damage to a player to trigger Brass this makes Pirates who have flying/other evasion important because they can more easily attack and not be blocked thus do combat damage to a player. Wonder can give all your Pirates flying as long as it's in your graveyard and you control one Island. More Pirates with flying/other evasion makes Bident and Mission good repeatable draw since for each Pirate who does combat damage to a player you draw a card.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Walk the Plank
  • Cancel
  • Heartless Pillage
  • Thaumatic Compass
  • Vance's Blasting Cannons
  • Dusk Legion Dreadnought
  • Lightning-Rig Crew
  • Storm Fleet Swashbuckler
  • Headstrong Brute
  • Rigging Runner
  • Storm Fleet Aerialist

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Hail to Kolaghan King!

4 months ago

Hey, for the low budget good job for your first Commander deck.

Consider a Goblin and Dragon theme? This would give your overall deck a more focused theme instead of just playing random creatures such as Diregraf Ghoul and Spinal Centipede. I suggest this because when Kolaghan attacks she pumps any creatures you control and Goblins can make lots of token creatures. This kind of strategy is call go wide. Which means attacking with lots of creatures, a wide battlefield of creatures.

Cards to consider adding:

Other Draw/Tutors

Other Ramp

Other Dragons

Other Goblins

Other Removal

Other Lands

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start, nice Dockside Extortionist and Vampiric Tutor :)

Consider more one/two drop Pirates especially ones with flying? More overall one/two drop Pirates helps to assemble a battlefield of Pirates to attack the turn you play Brass.

Forerunner of the Coalition is a Pirate tutor and it can also be a repeatable source opponents' lose life when a Pirate ETB. Ruin Raider can be repeatable draw at your end step with attacking Pirates. Anger and Wonder are good with Pirates especially Wonder giving them flying evasion. Giving all your Pirates including Brass flying can be a win condition with attacking Pirates. Brass is much better when she has haste letting her attack the turn you cast her. Pirates who can attack the turn you play them can help to trigger Brass's gain control ability quicker.

Buried Alive can tutor for both Anger/Wonder as well as one other creature and put them all into your graveyard. Can also use Buried with Phyrexian Reclamation and/or March of the Drowned as a way to tutor for Pirates put them into your graveyard and then recur them to your hand. Reclamation can be helpful repeatable recursion for Pirates since Pirates are going to die over the course of a game.

Marchesa, the Black Rose is not a Pirate, but she can be a repeatable source of reanimating Pirates. Dethrone is an attacking ability where as if a Pirate attacks your opponent with the most amount of life then that Pirate gets a +1/+1 counter. With Marchesa if that Pirate dies then it will come back to the battlefield at your end step. Metallic Mimic is a Pirate when it ETB who interacts well with Marchesa since Mimic can put a +1/+1 counter on another Pirate when it ETB.


Adding some more ramp can help game play:

Some budget lands (each $5 or less) to consider adding:

These are budget land options, but of course there's many other better options for lands that are more expensive.

Good luck with your deck.

Also, I like the addition of Sacred Foundry to put the lands to 37+1 for Maze. That's a solid number, keep it there, I say. But also:

-2 Plains

+1 Mountain

+1 Path of Ancestry

and maybe think about squeezing Rakdos Carnarium in at some point

multimedia on Cromation ($50 Mutate Voltron)

5 months ago

Hey, nice budget version. Interesting deck, bizarre deck description.

You can put Jegantha next to Cromat in the deck list by adding the CMDR tag to Jegantha in the deck editor.

1x Jegantha, the Wellspring *CMDR*

Doing it this way clearly shows that Jegantha is the companion of your deck.


Because of Jegantha's tap ability consider adding cards that can untap a creature to get more activations?

Faeburrow Elder is a very good mana dork for five colors and is also a creature you want to untap. With Cromat in your control Elder is another Jegantha. Jodah, Archmage Eternal in combination with Jegantha makes it easier to cast spells because then generic mana costs don't matter and the mana made by Jegantha lets you cast any spell. Conflux is busted with the ramp from Jegantha tutoring for five creatures with mutate.

$40 total price is below precon total prices and the manabase here is worse then a lot of precons. With 20 Forest in the manabase you're counting on Jegantha to cast spells. I know this is low budget, but you want to at least make the manabase playable without Jegantha. For low cost the Guild Bounce lands can help the manabase and have fine interaction with lots of basic lands.

Good luck with your deck.
