Rakdos Charm Discussion
1 week ago
some good staples in BR are Rakdos Charm , and Kolaghan's Command . I would add more ramp like Rakdos Cluestone , Fellwar Stone , etc. if not adding one or two more land. Also since you are in red, how about some counterspells like Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast .

Struyk Thanks bud! Actually got a couple out. Beast Within , Thran Dynamo , Sire of Stagnation (Thank you so much for pointing out it's colorless xD), Hadana's Climb Flip, Journey to Eternity Flip are out. Actually decided to keep Kruphix, God of Horizons , Sphinx's Revelation and Detention Sphere for the moment but probably i'll get them out too once I found something else to put.
I'll keep Mirari's Wake . Doubling my mana, in 5 color, help me so much! I don't get mana screwed if I play 2-3 spells in the same turn with this (as it can happens without]. Rakdos Charm is a personnal choice I guess. There's a lot of token deck in my playgroup, and it can one shot a player easily for 2 mana, which is good imo and it stop reanimate too! (YAY, RIP The Mimeoplasm and Meren of Clan Nel Toth ) Thought Vessel seems good to me too. Having a second Reliquary Tower is not bad I think.
I'll stay tuned to your future upgrades :)

Take a look at my attempt
Work in progress still :) My goal is to play commander, draw many cheap control cards / counter cards and win by card advantage.

Only 1 card, Rakdos Charm can destroy the final one, that isn't your Signature Spell. That makes it ult + 2 cards for Ugin's Nexus to have any effect at all.
Your combo doesn't work without Charm. You need to ult too. That card is trash in this deck.

I have 2 built already. I have,
Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast and Slaughter Games it's a combo killer deck, it wins through grinding out a game and melting them. If I'm up against no blue decks I switch to Sadistic Sacrament and if I'm against no combo decks I switch to Rakdos Charm . Here's the deck for your viewing pleasure click here too.

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:
- Gilded Lotus -> Fanatical Firebrand
- Sword of the Animist -> Swiftfoot Boots
- Mana Crypt -> Thermo-Alchemist
- Neheb, the Eternal -> Pilgrim's Eye
- Abyssal Persecutor -> Coldsteel Heart
- Dire Fleet Ravager -> Rune-Scarred Demon
- Fiery Confluence -> Painful Truths
- Olivia Voldaren -> Goblin Fireslinger
- Damnation -> Damnable Pact
- Steel Hellkite -> It That Betrays
- Bojuka Bog -> Smoldering Marsh
- Oppression -> Artisan of Kozilek
- Rakdos, the Showstopper -> Theater of Horrors
- Sol Ring -> Lobber Crew
- Flame Rift -> Gamble
- Rakdos Charm -> Lotus Petal
- Duplicant -> Walking Ballista
- Scourge of the Throne -> Void Winnower
- Bloodgift Demon -> Mask of Memory
- Kokusho, the Evening Star -> Painful Lesson
- Oblivion Stone -> Necropotence
- Risk Factor -> Dark Ritual
- Whip of Erebos -> Plague Spitter
- Heartless Hidetsugu -> Arguel's Blood Fast Flip
Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:
- direct damage is now at lower cmc
- -1 Ramp
- +1 protection/haste
- +2 tutor
- +5 draw
- +1 anti-control
- -4 Creature removal
- -2 graveyard hate
- -1 discard
- -1 extra attack
- -1 lifegain/recursion
- +1 removal
So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.
And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!

Whoops; I was thinking of something else. I meant something like Rakdos Charm

Another way to get some value off of your Zubera idea is to run 3 or 4 Viscera Seer or even Hidden Stockpile for fun. Lets you scry and get some extra value over time. However, in terms of your sideboard there's a few options you can go with... I think the most broad I'll put below with small explanations and then it can be altered as needed? Maybe?
2x Destructive Revelry --> The card is good, however, not needed as a 4 of. Leyline of Sanctity isn't played nearly as much, Leyline of the Void is awkward to bring in against you since you still get Zubera value from the death trigger and Rest in Peace is the same. Other key artifacts or enchantments you can try to go around/under due to smaller creatures being annoying.
2x Damping Sphere --> Slows down both tron and storm and just helps for the most part...
4x Death's Shadow --> Honestly, I don't know if I like this selection but it does give you another angle of attack... Speaking of angles, Gurmag Angler may also be worth considering due to the nature of Greater Gargadon doing his thing. May also want to consider other wincons here in split numbers ( Liliana of the Veil , Liliana, the Last Hope , Kaya, Orzhov Usurper , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet etc.)
3x Path to Exile --> Kill it, kill it dead.
This is 15, and it should be broad enough to help in several match ups, but it can also be tuned to be better/stronger for what you need. I feel that the options here are easy enough to understand when you'd bring them in and makes choices easy when playing against opponents, however, I also threw this together real quick before work so I'm sure I missed a few things. Either way, this gives an idea of a few cards to look into. Other options include Surgical Extraction , Crumble to Dust , Fulminator Mage , Thoughtseize , Nihil Spellbomb and it can just keep on going.... Rakdos Charm is a personal favorite of mine for Sideboards in X decks!
