Speaking of free Eldrazi, Rakdos, Lord of Riots is worth considering as a non-Green option..

Thanks for the comment Heimdall300

I do have a Rakdos, Lord of Riots lying around, it does look good in there.

For Sire Of Insanity, I never played with it, gonna have to see if I can slot him in, love that big power on him also!

I just added Terror of the Peaks to the list and cut Solemn Simulacrum I never want to single target reanimate this guy and i feel like i'm good on ramp and don't need as much draw as other decks, i'll find myself dredging everytime I can most of the time!

What would you cut for those 2?

Looks really cool, nice deck ! Maybe Sire Of Insanity and Rakdos, Lord of Riots could fit in well ;)

So, dipping my feet back into deck building with primers to take a break from a soulless deck building project; I've decided to brew around Rakdos, Lord of Riots this time. There was a guy who use to run him at the shop I went to and I always thought it was pretty cool to be rewarded by your commander for whacking people. Anyways, for the most part I feel the deck is solid though suggestions are always welcome. What I really want help with is the primer. Namely, what everyone is looking for in a primer. What wins your upvotes?

Here's the deck

I'd use Rakdos, Lord of Riots as the cmdr. The cost reducing ability from rakdos can help cast big spells that generate value for casting artifacts, sacrificing them, bringing them back. Anything you can think of.

I really like this idea. What commander would you run? I feel like Rakdos, Lord of Riots wouldn’t work as well for this kinda thing, as reducing one or two mana cards is something other easier to cast cards can do.

Massacar: these combos look awesome, I may swap out commanders but the ideas are amazing.

Hey all.

I’ve been tossing the idea of Rakdos artifacts around and was wondering how you guys would build it? I was thinking maybe Rakdos, Lord of Riots? Cheat big artifact creatures into play? How would you make it more combo focused? What other commanders seem like they’d work to you?
