Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion

xsnappsx on Meren's Friends are Dead, Push Her to the Edge

  • punkrawkmonkey I hadn't thought about including Tooth and Nail. While it's clearly a great form of tutoring and cheating, I'm not sure I need it already having Survival of the Fittest or that what I would take out for it. On the other hand, this would be a backup if my Buried Alive gets countered one way or the other. I'll consider getting this.

  • LVL_666 Razaketh, the Foulblooded certainly caught my eye when HOU came out. He could potentially be a replacement if a big threat like Avenger of Zendikar, Terastodon, etc. wind up not working out. I haven't had much of an issue with sacrificing creatures due to my meta, my opponents tend to be doing it for me most of the time. So, that would seriously hamper him.

  • freakingShane That's a lot of helpful information! Thank you!

I defintitely want to get an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers in there. I would take out a swamp for Urborg, easy enough, and a forest for the Cabal Coffers. I could make these part of a 'Birthday gift' to myself.

Toxic Deluge is another one that would be a good meta answer. Zurgo Helmsmasher has been making an appearance and I've had no answer aside from Dictate of Erebos or Fleshbag Marauder.

I had no idea about the Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord combo with Phyrexian Devourer and the stack. Going to have to explain that one to the playgroup once I pull that off. I will add him back in it's just a matter of what to take out now.

Never heard of Perpetual Timepiece but I had been considering adding Elixir of Immortality. The timepiece would be a godsend for the graveyard hate, but what would I remove for that.

Realms Uncharted another card I didn't know about. Out of all my matches so far I've used Life from the Loam only once. Perhaps it was because I wasn't aware of this combo. Up until this point I was considering removing it.

Smokestack and the stax element was something I was considering as well. Awakening Zone, Pawn of Ulamog, Avenger of Zendikar, and any creature brough back EOT with Meren would make this pretty good. I have a sealed From the Vault Annihilation on my bookshelf that I may have to open up.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan would really have staying power. I could take out one of my artifact / enchantment removal creatures for him.

  • zaerox12345 You're absolutely right. I got jaded from one of my earlier games where Scourge of Nel Toth was cheated in to win the game for me. Otherwise in hand it's a 7 CMC 6/6 with flying. Nothing to special considering it would not be the target of an early Buried Alive and provides no ETB effect. Good call here.

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is almost a second commander for the deck with her -2 and especially if you can hit her ultimate. I've toyed with the idea of working Rune-Scarred Demon into my deck, because Sidisi, Undead Vizier works so well. Razaketh, the Foulblooded is awesome, too, and it is repeatable, and works well with the sacrificing theme of the deck.

A question on Walking Ballista; if you return it to the battlefield, won't it die immediately because you can't get the +1/+1 counters on it? You'd have to return it to your hand and recast it. Also, what is its CMC in regard to Meren's ability to return it to your hand?

SlyBlu7 on Draft League N00B, HELP!

2 days ago

Hey guys - just entered a draft league. They let us pick up 4 packs to start (2 ANK, 2 HOU) and build 30 card decks from there. I think I got the short end of the pulls. Especially when I look at the awesome (frustratingly so) pulls that my GF got, who is even more of a newbie to the game. Anyway, this is what I put together:

Creatures Frilled Sandwalla , Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Naga Vitalist, Dune Beetle , Wretched Camel, Ruin Rat, Bitterblade Warrior , Sidewinder Naga , Ornery Kudu , Giant Spider , Bitterbow Sharpshooters

Spells Compelling Argument, Gift of Strength , Synchronized Strike , Splendid Agony, Cartouche of Ambition, Torment of Venom

Artifacts Traveler's Amulet, Bontu's Monument, Oketra's Monument

Land Ipnu Rivulet, Desert of the Glorified, Desert of the Indomitable, Grasping Dunes,1Island, 4Forest, 2Swamp

The idea that I had was to go BG for tossing -1/-1 with Vizier, and having some creatures and pumps. Splashed U for milling.

What else did I pull? Garbage, I think. White was especially thin, which is sad because it's one of my favorite colors.

White Mighty Leap , Oketra's Avenger , Forsake the Worldly , Dauntless Aven , Sandblast

Blue Strategic Planning, Spellweaver Eternal, Labyrinth Guardian , Ancient Crab , Eternal of Harsh Truths, Tragic Lesson, Illusory Wrappings , Shimmerscale Drake , Striped Riverwinder, Open Into Wonder

Black Liliana's Defeat, Shadow of the Grave, Doomfall, Razaketh, the Foulblooded

Red Crash Through, Pathmaker Initiate, Nef-Crop Entangler , Blur of Blades, Open Fire, Pursue Glory , Manticore Eternal , Hazoret's Undying Fury, Desert Cerodon

Aftermath Onward / Victory

Land Sunscorched Desert, Shefet Dunes

Now, my list of cards is recorded at the store, so I can change the deck but obviously cannot add any cards from elsewhere. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have featured Red in the deck, maybe just cut my losses and went RG to keep it simple. Can anyone help me out? It's fairly casual, but I don't really want to get my head caved in for the next two months of MtG.Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

KingMathoro on Powerful Commanders on a Budget

3 days ago

I may have a few suggestions for you. Some budget Commanders that perform well while even on a budget are Commanders like Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. The main win con with the first two is to combo out with something like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion. And Yisan just does sillyness. Cheat stuff out and profit. My personal take on a budget deck that is different from what you have mentioned above is Voltron. I am quite the fan of Voltron and it can be powerful while being on a budget. 21 Commander damage is quite feasible and most people don't encounter it a lot, at least that's how its been in my experience. My two commanders of choice right now are Sram, Senior Edificer and Sigarda, Host of Herons. The former is more Artifact based whilst the latter is more Enchantment based. I only have a decklist for Sram right now but I can get a Sidgarda one together fairly easily if that peeks your interest. Also a note, I know the deck list says 160 over all but when I went to checkout on TCG the deck was only 130.

Here's the list: Budget Voltron EDH

Geo67 on Sultai Reanimator

I think the the milling 4/4 would be hilarious to be honest.

I have a Razaketh, the Foulblooded in mine just for fun, but he is rarely cast from my hand...I also do the Verdurous Gearhulk because he comes in and puts counters down, and you can make stuff ridiculous. Imagine your Haunted Dead 1/1 spirit as a 5/5.

Looks pretty cool tho. I was actually trying to figure out how to get Ishkana into mine.

landofMordor on Mad God-Pharoah's Reanimator

If you're wanting to focus on the Gift, then I think you could eliminate some other combos here. Madcap Experiment, for example, hurts more than it helps, and Fiery Temper (you want to discard creatures). Cut 2-3 Gifts and add 4 Gate to the Afterlife, to tutor for the Gift and cheat Gift into play as early as T4.

Then, put in way more payoff creature cards, with relevant abilities but low P/T that will be improved by the Gift. Things like Thraben Inspector, Noosegraf Mob, etc. Or cheat stuff into play on the cheap: Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Exquisite Archangel. Brisela, Voice of Nightmares. Stuff like that.

Hope that helps! Mention me if I can be helpful.

Lythia: Welcome and sure!

Hey guys and gals its been a while. I have just completed my latest project and will build on the description over the next month or so. Its pure cEDH made to play against similar decks only. I have built the deck around Razaketh, the Foulblooded and I am pretty pleased with it.

If you're after a drain and gain deck I would suggest Kambal, Consul of Allocation as your commander as well as the keyword 'extort' and done 'whenever you gain life' or 'whenever an opponent loses life'.

That said a sacrifice deck works fine. I'd recommend adding Razaketh, the Foulblooded if there's is room.
