Rakdos, Lord of Riots Discussion

RazortoothMtg on Best grusilda creatures

Essentially Grusilda, Monster Masher seems to be the Rakdos version of Stitcher Geralf, so you might want to look at those decks for ideas. Another commander that'd share similar cards would be Rakdos, Lord of Riots, but that's essentially just a list of Eldrazi. So maybe you just build it as a reanimator deck, something along the lines of Sheoldred, Whispering One.

I'll second Olivia Voldaren - one of my least favorite commanders to play against. Main issue is she doesn't bring much to the table against non-creature decks.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots is great for group slug decks (not great 1v1), and can be kind of a less-good Kaalia. Linear but fast. I've never seen anyone do Rakdos with artifact creatures, but could be fun.

I've been wanting to try Tsabo Tavoc, even though the liabilities clearly outweigh the benefits. Maybe best as an addition to Lord of Riots...

Hey all.

So I'm trying to make a new deck with rakdos colors, and I'm trying to make it as strong as possible. I know technically the only "competitive" Rakdos general is Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and while I'm keeping him as an option I wanna explore other avenues too, especially since Im on a budget. Rakdos, Lord of Riots has also come up as a strong general but I fear he is too linear? Finally I won't play Mogis, God of Slaughter since my playgroup is mostly graveyard decks and that free sac only helps them lol.

Thanks in advanced!

EDIT: Also, how is Tymaret, the Murder King? I was looking through cards and I own a foil one.

EDIT 2: Okay so I also found out I have a foil Malfegor and am making builds for him. Thoughts?

  1. Get rid of the killbots and other creatures
  2. Replace them with Eldrazi titans and good creatures i.e. Rakdos, Lord of Riots
  3. Jam Conspiracy into this deck.
  4. Enjoy the reactions of your playgroup as you cheat Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or another Eldrazi onto the field for 2 mana and put him back into your hand when an effect would endanger him.
  5. Win by sheer force of eldrazi!

Jimmy_Chinchila Thanks! And I never really thought of that... That gives me an idea for a Grenzo, Havoc Raiser devil/havoc themed deck (I know he isn't a devil but he definitely feels on theme), or maybe something like Boris Devilboon/Malfegor/Mogis, God of Slaughter/Rakdos the Defiler/Rakdos, Lord of Riots and throw some demons in there. I honestly spent way too long trying to figure out a creative deck name when I made the deck lol so if you can think of something better I'd probably use it. Initially I was going to use the name "I could me your angle... Or yuor devil" but there was some confusion with people who didn't know the reference

Rakdos Signet for the nut turn one of of Sol Ring... Concerning the spell package, you have a lot of direct removal maybe some boardwhipe type cards that don't hurt your board like: Vandalblast for artifacts and Mizzium Mortars for onesided wrath or even Blasphemous Act. then use your killspells on anithing left. as for removal: bolts are pretty weak in EDH type strategies unless you have a good way of recurring them like with Charmbreaker Devils or Isochron Scepter so I would suggest running Murder Dismember Doomblade Tragic Slip

I hope it helps, and if your interested in a way different B/R experience, check out my Rakdos, Lord of Riots EDH list:
