Rakshasa Deathdealer Discussion

MurderousPanda on Kresh

4 months ago

I think your deck would be really benefit from putting Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper and Emrakul's Evangel in. Being able to sacrifice your stuff and get more creatures to sac out of it, specifically tokens with decent power, would help pump Kresh even more quickly. Sek'Kuar can also give you some boardwipe protection, or force multiple boardwipes, becuase he just replaces all your creatures when they die. I would replace Rakshasa Deathdealer with one of these, as I feel it just doesn't do enough in your deck. Another card I personally would remove is Necropolis Fiend because once again, I just don't think it does enough for your deck, and it seems like a bit of a nonbow because it reduces the creatures power to zero, meaning Kresh gets no benefit, and it forces you to remove cards from your graveyard which kind of takes away any chance for recursion. Final card I would add because I just remembered it as I was writing this is Gutter Grime. If you do a lot of mass sacrificing this thing can go crazy reallly fast, giving you an absurd amount of power for basically free.

what do u think about Rakshasa Deathdealer as a mutate target? I also had some loose thoughts about cards like Fleecemane Lion with Outlast Abzan Falconer (but those are humans... scratch that thought)

Heliogabale on Google Ghave and The Search Engine of Doom

This is a nice idea! I hope you manage to make it work.

You need a Strionic Resonator to double the activations of Ob-Nixilis or Maralen.

Avatar of Growth would be great if you can lay your hands on one.

I am not too fond of the white counterspell sub-theme you have included; with this color scheme you have ample options for removal. Personally I like Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Pernicious Deed. With your search to kill theme, Assassin's Trophy and Path to Exile should also be included.

Not sure why you are currently including Gift of Immortality, but adding a Spore Frog and a Necrotic Sliver makes for fun control.

Since your theme is running a bit thin, I see two options to make this deck more efficient : filling it to the brim with tutors, or including an alternate wincon. I definitely favour the second option; and I though you would like it to include your hidden general for flavor. Here is my suggestion for that:

Liliana's Contract and inexpensive Demons, like Desecration Demon, Grinning Demon, Herald of Torment, Indulgent Tormentor, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Rakshasa Deathdealer, Soulcage Fiend.

Hope this helps!

xyr0s on Abzan Aggro?

Just play the safe (and some would say "boring") cards for abzan. You want to go with blinking midrange? ok, no problem. Add 4 Mama blink.

Utter End is a bad card in modern, simply because it provides for 4 mana what you most often can do for 1 (remove a creature). Play the more efficient Path to Exile, which lets you answer aggro threats a lot earlier than at 4 mana. Rakshasa Deathdealer is somewhat the same story - it doesn't do anything you can't get at lower mana (well, regeneration, actually, but at 2 mana...). Grim Flayer would be a very real upgrade. And this seems to be the theme for your creatures. Hooded Hydra isn't exactly fast either, when you have none/very little ramp. I guess Wingmate Roc is an interesting card, but since the rest of your creatures are a bit on the heavy end, this is not very good either.

Against aggro, you should bring some sort of discard at 1 mana (that is Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize). Those trade for the best card in your opponents hand on your first turn, and might take 3 to 6 damage out of your opponent (or more, in some cases), even if they are pretty bad topdecks later on. Burn is particularly intimidated by Collective Brutality, since it kills one of their attackers and takes a card from them. It also enables delve and/or delirium.

Anafenza, the Foremost seems fitting. Or, if being a sink isn't too bad, why noch Rakshasa Deathdealer?

Cheap BG stuff that you might want to consider: Vulturous Zombie stuff dying is quite good, Varolz, the Scar-Striped graveuard stuff and sac engine, Spiritmonger, Reaper of the Wilds stuff dying is good, Rakshasa Deathdealer, Putrid Leech a decent buff, Pharika, God of Affliction graveyard and make some snakes, Hag Hedge-Mage versatility is good, Grave-Shell Scarab for some draw, Doomgape is a good sac engine, Deity of Scars good dude in general, Baloth Null for some recursion, Puppeteer Clique not BG but steal your opponet's stuff.

More recursion because you are a sacrifice deck: Whip of Erebos who doesn't like lifelink, Vigor Mortis, Seasons Past got lots o stuff.

Anastasius: This is an interesting take on , but in my personal opinion - could use a small amount of work. I feel that you need a few more aggresive threats and maybe a Planeswalker or two. I like Sorin, Solemn Visitor. I also think that maybe (maybe) Fleecemane Lion is very nice, for just . I also like Rakshasa Deathdealer.

bsherrer: This person's finances and ability to have fun, construct a deck, and or post what ever they want onto the Tappedout community - is entirely irrelevant. They are...what, $14 dollars out of budget range (depending who you ask) and that qualifies questioning. Interesting. I feel that this is actually a a well designed 75 -that does not cost 100's or even potentially 1000's. Help them out. You are among one of the budget Kings/Queens on this site.
