Rakdos Signet Discussion

multimedia on Cheap Marchesa, the Black Rose deck

11 hours ago

Hey, Sage of Fables works well with Marchesa, Viscera, Haruspex, Disciple of Bolas , Puppeteer Clique , Sower of Temptation , etc. It also can be a draw engine by removing +1/+1 counters from your creatures.

To help the less than ideal manabase consider Trophy Mage just to tutor for Chromatic Lantern ? Or she can get Ashnod's. Consider Brainstorm , Ponder , Impulse , Read the Bones to help to find lands or other cards? Another way to help the manabase is with more mana rocks Rakdos Signet , Izzet Signet , Dimir Signet , Fellwar Stone .

Lands that won't break the bank to consider adding: Exotic Orchard , Choked Estuary , Foreboding Ruins , Grixis Panorama , Ash Barrens , Dimir Aqueduct , Rakdos Carnarium , Izzet Boilerworks , Reliquary Tower , Smoldering Marsh , Sunken Hollow , Shivan Reef . Most of these lands have good interaction with basic lands since there's a lot of them here and I suggest adding more in place of the lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Urborg Volcano . The Bounce lands (Aqueduct, Carnarium, Boilerworks) work well with basic lands and other lands that can ETB untapped.

Consider this budget manabase:

If you like some of suggestions I offer help to make cuts. By the way there's 2x Skullclamp here ;)

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice start for a budget upgrade of the precon.

With Jeleva you don't have to go completely over the top with all splashy high mana cost spells, some is good. You can benefit from Jeleva by simply getting card advantage when she attacks from a low mana cost spell you exiled with her especially a draw spell such as Brainstorm or a tutor such as Gamble .

Budget cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

Lots of creatures goes against Jeleva's ability. If you have a lot of creatures then it makes it more difficult for you to hit an instant/sorcery to exile. You want to benefit from Jeleva's ETB ability too, not just exile your opponents spells.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Izzet Guildgate
  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Temple of the False God
  • Vivid Creek
  • Vivid Marsh
  • Baleful Strix
  • Dimir Doppelganger
  • Djinn Illuminatus
  • Fog Bank
  • Nekusar, the Mindrazer
  • Thraximundar
  • Tsabo Tavoc
  • Uyo, Silent Prophet
  • Vampire Nighthawk
  • Hypersonic Dragon
  • Fissure Vent
  • Liturgy of Blood
  • Molten Disaster
  • Tempt with Reflections
  • Annihilate
  • Price of Fame
  • Starstorm
  • Spiteful Visions
  • Illusionist's Gambit
  • Phthisis

If you like these suggestions then I offer more help. Good luck with your deck.

Heres a few suggestions to help the sacrifice package: Dictate of Erebos , Merciless Executioner , Plaguecrafter , Slave of Bolas , Call to the Grave , Grave Pact . As for the mana ramp package, you may want to add Sol Ring , Izzet Signet and Rakdos Signet . Since Thraximundar costs CMC of seven, playing him and getting him bounced/killed and having to pay commander tax afterwords is going to really set you back a couple of turns considering the deck revolves around him sticking on the board to get bonuses for players saccing creatures. Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are EDH staples that will help him stick to the board.

urchinpriests on The Ur-Dragon

Removing the following, some I may re-add when I get them, others would just be better as legit mana sources

High CMC, non-dragon

Zirilan of the Claw -> Boros Signet

Low impact, non-dragon

Dragon Whisperer -> Golgari Signet

Signet would almost always do a better job

Dragonspeaker Shaman -> Gruul Signet

Signet would almost always do a better job

Dragonlord's Servant -> Izzet Signet

A little pricey ($), might be more durable as a signet anyway

Sarkhan, Fireblood -> Rakdos Signet

Need colored mana

Homeward Path -> Mountain

Just forgot to order him

Dragonlord Kolaghan -> Dragon Broodmother

No etb's but you need Boros Signet , Rakdos Signet , Orzhov Signet , Fellwar Stone , Talisman of Indulgence , and Talisman of Dominance .

Also consider Last One Standing and Jokulhaups .

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Plenty of budget friendly options and the list is pretty optimized. Upvotes and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

The 2 main areas I feel this list needs work in is both ramp and card draw. The mana curve on the other hand looks great.

Draw: Consider Greed , Dark Prophecy , and Herald's Horn .

Ramp: Talisman of Indulgence , Fellwar Stone , Rakdos Signet , Boros Signet , and Orzhov Signet all deserve spots.

I'm also fond of Sorin, Solemn Visitor here. His +1 is very nice, especially with Reconnaissance (note: until your next turn).

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

triproberts12 on Xantcha, Sleeper Agent

I really like what you've done here, and I vote you build this deck. I can tell that, despite not having played very long, you've done your research. Haven't even seen Balduvian Warlord in a list yet, and it's some great tech. Plus you're running my favorite black card in EDH, Syphon Mind! Such value.

As for what to add, I think you could use another sac outlet or two for when Xantcha comes back to you after a player dies. Phyrexian Tower is a good investment. It only recently went from like $60 to $10 from the reprint, and I don't see it being reprinted any time soon.

Some other good cards to encourage combat and keep yourself protected are Koskun Falls , since it's the only Ghostly Prison in BR. No Mercy is a great deterrent, as well. Also, Maddening Imp is fun tech, but you can force combat more broadly with Angel's Trumpet , Fumiko the Lowblood , Goblin Spymaster , and Warmonger Hellkite .

As for helping Xantcha hit the mark, Cover of Darkness is excellent. Gotta love the old tribal cards that affect other player's creatures, and you're unlikely to get much splash effect from naming "Minion." Although, if you want to capitalize on it, Chainer, Dementia Master , Sleeper Agent (the OG Xantcha), and Phage the Untouchable could all play well into what you're doing. Chainer for the abundance of dying creatures. Agent, since no one will want to block it and for that sweet, sweet flavor. Phage, since no blockers should be a goal in your deck. Either way, Cover of Darkness should replace Whispersilk Cloak , since you can't equip creatures you don't control. Shizo, Death's Storehouse could also be good.

I think you could use a little more mana fixing, as well. Blood Crypt is unlikely to ever get cheaper than it is now. Temple of Malice is nice, and if you find yourself leaning black, Tainted Peak could be a good include, as well. Also, Rakdos Signet seems like a given.

As for cuts, I don't think Hissing Miasma is that great. Koskun Falls and No Mercy are much better deterrents. Shizo, Death's Storehouse is more mana-efficient than Rogue's Passage , and makes black mana, to boot. The Haunt of Hightower just seems too slow to be worth the cost if you're not building around it. Words of Waste seems like a loosing battle, since you'll need to be paying 3 mana to draw with Xantcha and activate the ability, so for every two times you combo, you're paying 6 mana and putting your opponents down 2 cards each and drawing 0 cards. For that 6 mana, you could just draw three cards, instead.

Good luck!

Word of Seizing gives you a turn to attack for free as you can gain control of their Ghostly Prison for the turn.

Confusion in the Ranks can effectively make your opponent lose control of Ghostly Prison for the duration of the game, and yes, Confusion in the Ranks does trigger off itself entering the battlefield so you can exchange it right away.

If you remove Terminate and Rakdos Signet for Demonic Dread there will be no spells in your deck with CMC 2 or less. That means if you board in the Dread and a card like Destructive Revelry , Back to Nature , or Abrupt Decay then your Demonic Dread will always cast whatever 2-cost spell is in your deck without needing to pay it's mana costs. (You can always run Dismember instead of Terminate if you want a cheap removal spot or you can just board out Terminate for the Demonic Dread combo whenever you need enchantment hate more.)

Rampaging Ferocidon would probably make for an amazing sideboard-tech against soul-sisters without needing to mess with the Ghostly Prison .

When it comes to Black-Red you really have to get wacky if you want to interact with enchantments. It may be better to run discard effects like Inquisition of Kozilek or meta-specific sideboard-hate like the Ferocidon though.
