Rakdos Charm Discussion

So it almost seems that you are on the precipice of 2 versions of the deck. You could go more aggro counter-burn by adding Stormchaser Mage and Bone Picker or you could go more controlling by taking out Young Pyromancer and Electrolyze and adding more counters. Either way I would add one maindeck Dreadbore and move one Terminate to the sideboard. I would also add things like 2 Grafdigger's Cage instead of Rakdos Charm and something else.

Please look at what the cards in the deck do before commenting. I have plenty of single removal (Decimate, Grapeshot, Shattering Spree, Beast Within, Chain of Vapor, Chaos Warp, Cyclonic Rift, Doomblade, Murder, Rakdos Charm, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, and Pyroblast), as well as enough wipes to keep the deck effective (Evacuation, Cyclonic Rift, Shattering Spree, and Grapeshot). As for playing against mill, you clearly haven't even looked at what Magus of the Will, Elixir of Immortality, Day's Undoing, Past in Flames, or Noxious Revival do. As for burn decks, I'd have to depend on my tutors to get out my Doomsday + Laboratory Maniac combo out as soon as possible. My testing of the deck has had me realize that I can win as early as turn 4 with this combo, so I'm not too worried. And I won't even discuss how ridiculous it is that you think Traumatize would be a threat to my deck, especially when Im using Doomsday. First off, the goal of the Doomsday combo is to empty out my deck so that I win using Laboratory Maniac, and second off, anyone with half a brain would go after a deck that actually has cards in it, so they get their 5 manas worth. 5 mana for 2 cards in a combo that tries to mill itself out is beyond ridiculous.

Please, please, look at the deck before commenting.

Quantumsandwich on Rule 306.7 shenanigans with Rakdos ...

1 week ago

I was looking up rules text to answer a different question, when I stumbled upon what I thought might be an interesting interaction.

I control a Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded with 1 loyalty counter. My opponent controls a Flying Men. We are both at 1 life. I cast Rakdos Charm choosing the third mode, hoping to win.

Rule 306.7 says "If noncombat damage would be dealt to a player by a source controlled by an opponent, that opponent may have that source deal that damage to a planeswalker the first player controls instead."

Flying Men is a source my opponent controls, dealing noncombat damage to a player. If my interpretation of the rules is correct, is my opponent allowed to redirect the 1 damage from himself to my planeswalker, thereby not dying and killing my planeswalker in the process? This seems like something silly I'd like to be able to pull once in a blue moon.

Being in red black means you have access to several strong noncreature spells...Terminate, Dreadbore, Unlicensed Disintegration, Kolaghan's Command, Rakdos Charm just to name a few.

You also have access to token creators in Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder and Hordeling Outburst

Vandalblast is a thing you want also

and then there's goblin lords - consider the following... Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Warchief, Goblin King

Hot Soup is bad do not play it

Mogg Fanatic, Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker play them

Vampire Nocturnus is fine with some copies of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Agree that you definitely need 4 Bloodghast. Viscera Seer is an excellent 1-drop vampire that combos with Nocturnus/Bloodghast and sort of blanks opponent's removal. From my own testing, I have also found Captivating Vampire and Bloodline Keeper  Flip to be underwhelming in Modern. Lastly, I would keep Rakdos Charm in the sideboard and just run more discard or removal in the main.

Also, Rakdos Charm was in there to start. I am realizing I need some graveyard hate. I might decide to add it in, or try Relic of Progenitus or Leyline of the Void.

I also am a huge fan of Rakdos Charm in my play group. It's hilarious seeing someone mass a butt ton of tokens or creature then go in for a killing blow with craterhoof then killing them with its effect
