Rakdos, Lord of Riots Discussion

Ik ben een beetje een noob in dit comment systeem maar het komt blijkbaar wel aan. :S

Ik heb je Sissay deck ff bekeken. Super strak in elkaar en een papieren staaf goud. Super Spicy.

Mijn favo EDH deck is mijn Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck omdat het mijn eerste homebrew commander deck is, maar ben altijd graag aan het sleutelen. m'n playgroup is bestwel casual en proberen we graag nieuwe dingen uit.

This doesn't look bad! With that being said, I'd add more card draw that isn't reliant on having Rakdos, Lord of Riots on the field, such as Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/etc or Read the Bones. I'd also add a LOT more ramp, since the deck is essentially dead without its commander, particularly mana rocks such as Coalition Relic or Gilded Lotus. My first cuts would be Rakdos's Return, Palace Siege, and all three of your PWs: they don't do enough for their mana costs. Also, have you considered Lobber Crew as another way to curve out Rakdos?

I could be wrong but I think Rakdos, Lord of Riots might fit nicely in there

EDedan on 3 color cards in Ravnica

I understand your point cdkime but it is a cool idea so i'm not gonna get sad if they don't do it but i'm gonna get hyped if they do that's all :)

Another theory.. We know that Bolas was in contact with Vraska on ravnica before so maybe Bolas will forge alliances inside of ravnica with other guilds to strengthen his forces..

I would not be suprised if he talked to Lazav, Dimir Mastermind because i always thought that Bolas was primarily Dimir and having a net of spies at a world we are certain that bolas will return in one of the ravnica sets seems like the logical option if he would make an alliance with.

Maybe Rakdos, Lord of Riots cause he will invade new worlds and Rakdos, Lord of Riots as the Lord of Riots would be intrigued about making mayhem on other planes.

AAaaaannndd if i wanna stretch it maybe Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius cause maybe he is interested in bolas inventions and wants to find out more about the multiverse?

or maybe a three way alliance? making the Grixis Guild in the name of his own plane ;)

sorry if i rambled a bit but i'm hyped for the idea that we will maybe get "merged guilds" maybe the will be called "Parlaments of Ravnica" now xD

Not really much to say if I'm honest. It does look like you were using cards that you already own, such as Faerie Macabre and Dusk Legion Zealot, as they don't really have any internal synergy.

If you're asking for tips on what you should buy, cards like Lantern of Insight can help you make sure you're not going to give that Rakdos, Lord of Riots player a free Emrakul. Lens of Clarity could guarantee a sexy 7 drop rather than lands, and maybe more artifact ramp just so you can hard cast some of those fatties if they end up in you hand: Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Star Compass, Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo are some sold budget options. Also: run more eldrazi! If you don't want to fork out your life's savings for an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, a Pathrazer of Ulamog or It That Betrays are some thicc boys.

Also, Primal Surge and Genesis Wave :3

Sultanna on Kaalia of the Vast edh ...

You are welcome to check out my Kaalia deck: Saints, Sinners, and Serpents, it's a little out of date and I've replaced some so-so "meh" cards with much better ones :) She's one of my favorite decks to play and I have some recommendations that I think would fit well with yours.

I would say to take out Disciple of Bolas, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Sire Of Insanity, and Demonlord Belzenlok. Personally I'm not a fan of these cards in Kaalia and I think there are far better options, IMO.

I would definitley add in: Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Akroma, Angel of Fury, Aurelia, the Warleader, and Platinum Angel in addition to other cards you're wanting to put in - those will buff your deck immensely. Personally, I'd try to fit them all in. I might take out Overseer of the Damned and Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, as well.

As for enchantments I'd also put in Fervor as another way to give Kaalia haste. Personally, I'm a big fan of Expedite to give her haste for one mana and draw a card. I'd consider investing in Land Tax or Weathered Wayfarer as ways to fix your land.

Let me know if this helps!!

Vela the Night-Clad is good, I absolutely adore Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and she isn't absolutely necessary, though she is super powerful. Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Mayael the Anima is slap full of ramp allowing you to hardcast as well, I'll throw in another vote for Edgar Markov because he is just SICK, last one I'll throw out is Karametra, God of Harvests...just look up her Enchantress list. It's excellent.

Liliana’s contract seems pretty solid in a Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck.
