Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion
58 minutes ago
Alright I took a look over your deck, and you built it pretty sweet! From what you told me so far you want a casual/fun deck that can threaten to stomp people to the ground :P
Here might be some fun card suggestions that you can utilize for card flips:
Aside from those fun janky cards, I would lower the curve a little bit more, add more rocks, as well as more Card Advantage (CA). The most problem with Rakdos decks is the lack of CA it can provide.
Some staples you can use of this archetype are:
Also some additional types of demon that can help:
- Bloodgift Demon
- Demon of Dark Schemes
- Lord of the Void
- Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
- Razaketh, the Foulblooded
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Sire Of Insanity
Since cards are going to hit the graveyard at one point, recursion spells are quite nice, here might be some utility spells that are cool:
I'm not too sure on which route you want to go for your deck, but I hope this gives you some additional insight. If you like further help clarify what additional support your looking for and I'll be glad to help out!

Word of Command temporarily gives you control of your opponent to cast a spell from their hand while Word of Command is on the stack. Can you cast other spells from your opponent's hand if they had enough mana and the spells had flash/were instants? Can you sacrifice their creatures to Razaketh, the Foulblooded ? Can you make them concede the game?

The card in question is Progenitus .
• Does it protect it from bounce effects like Cyclonic Rift ?

MightyDarknut The deck you describe would never need Shirei and would be better as a Sidisi shell. Trying to involve Shirei means that one of 3 main stategies come into play:
1 - Go for a reanimator style list, with minor control elements. Abuse Apprentice Necromancer to the maximum, and have Shirei as a minor value pieces with some combo lines with Razaketh, the Foulblooded sacrificing creatures that trigger Shirei, so if the combo is disrupted, you have some board state to go off on your next turn. It could be a good mono-black combo list, as good as mono-black combo lists are in general, and can even have some very limited use for Shirei.
2 - Go for a stax list, abusing Shirei about as much as competitively viable as possible, trying to get good cards (think Bone Shredder ) that have innate value without Shirei and also a lot with, maybe 10-15 of these good useful creatures exist that work with Shirei and also aren't dead without like Heap Doll . Then run cards like Contamination , Smokestack , etc. and maybe even some hate pieces like Lethal Vapors if you are feeling... 'Out there.' Finish the deck off with a various amount of non-shirei based stax pieces like Sphere of Resistance , Thorn of Amethyst , Damping Matrix , Oppression , Bottomless Pit , Leyline of the Void , Chalice of the Void etc. and a large amount of instant speed interaction to hopefully survive the early game like Fatal Push , Dismember , Warping Wail , etc.
3 - Go with a Midrange combo list. Try to find some value-oriented creatures and a mix of interaction, maybe a few minor stax pieces that don't affect you, and then a bunch of tutors to find some hyper-card-efficient combo that may or may not interact with Shirei. Try some Ad Nauseam storm maybe, maybe a Buried Alive combo, who knows. Make it survive the early game a get their turns 4-5 for the midgame win, with a decent controlling backbone to lie on when you can't combo out as early as you would want, due to a stax piece you need removed or whatever.

So I'm assuming we are going with a sac outlet style here, and I have a couple of win cons. Exsanguinate / Debt to the Deathless for a large amount using Ashnod's Altar / Phyrexian Altar , Sac outlet procs from Kokusho/Artist/Cutthroat/Evangel, or Mirror Entity swarm.
- Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
- Mimic Vat
- Open the Graves
- Pitiless Plunder
- Sheoldred, the Whispering One
- Bontu's Monument
- Expedition Map
- Razaketh, the Foulblooded
- Debt to the Deathless
- Teferi's Protection
- Songs of the Damned
- Thran Dynamo
- Coldsteel Heart
- Viscera Seer
- Mirror Entity
- Pious Evangel Flip
- Phyrexian Plaguelord
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Oversold Cemetery
- Toxic Deluge
- Smothering Abomination
- Dark Prophecy
- Gate to the Afterlife
- God-Pharaoh's Gift ?
- Grim Haruspex
- Ashen Rider: I personally hate this card, it's so god awfully expensive and it expensive for a pretty vanilla creature... I think that unless you are playing a reanimator style this isn't worth playing at 8 CMC
- Butcher of malakir: I know a lot of people love this card, but I'd rather just play Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact over this any day, too expensive and too easily destroyed.
- Extractor demon: It's too expensive and mill is one of those things you have to COMMIT to.
- Havester of souls: I'd rather see a Smothering Abomination , Dark Prophecy , Gate to the Afterlife , or Grim Haruspex
- Knight Of The Last Breath: It's really bad.
- Krav, the unredeemed: This one is a bit iffy, it could be really good it could be really bad playtest with it, and if the deck doesn't do what you want it should be onthe first to go list.
- Light of the Legion: You don't have enough white creatures to make this worth while.
- Regna, the Redeemed: It's just WAY too expensive.
- Nomad's Assembly: This could be good, but it's far too expensive
- Storm Herd: This isn't your game plan my friend, I mean sure you could play it and win off it but I think you're better off taking that 10 mana and dumbing it into an Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless
- Rise of the Dark Realms: Too expensive, and you have no way to cheat it out.
- Cathar's Crusade: your gameplan should be more sac to get triggers and do silly things, not attacking.
- Divine Visitation: It's a Win more card in a deck that isn't solely based on making tokens, not worth.
- Sanguine bond/Exquisite Blood: I'm just not a fan of the combo, it pisses people off and is no fun. Play one or the other, not both.
- Grave Betrayl: Too expensive in my book
- True Coviction: Triple white in a deck that is prominently black... No thank you... Plus this doesn't contribute to your win con.
- Sword of Light and Shadow: Why? It won't protect against your board wipes, and it's very much not your strategy.

Hi MediSyntax, you make some great points - and some less great points. Though I think that Plaguecrafter is a strict upgrade from Fleshbag Marauder in 99% of cases, I'm lead to believe that in this one instance - it's less effective. Solely due to the fact that one can still cast Gravecrawler while it's in play. I'd probably include it, but there aren't many flex-slots - not even a Merciless Executioner or Innocent Blood that fill the same role.
Running Liliana, Untouched By Death is strong - especially with the rest of the build. Being able to sacrifice and recast other 1-drops as alternative combo pieces is awesome - 10/10 suggestion.
I also want to mention Pitiless Plunderer as it's a mana more than Pawn of Ulamog - but makes coloured mana when any of your creatures die - which means that it's a recurrable creature version of Phyrexian Altar as long as you have carrion feeder or something out (also it blocks Tymna).
Doom Whisperer is cool - but given you need to sit at a cozy 20 life for Razaketh, the Foulblooded it's a tough squeeze - though I might place it over Void Winnower since digging through the top 20 is much more pro-active than locking out some cards (worth testing - maybe board for sure).
Mausoleum Secrets could be cool with some testing - I'm building a version similar to this atm. My best question is what would you cut in order to include this (sometimes functioning) tutor? The main gripe is that with Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void in play - the card is turned off.
Furthermore, an interesting include that came to me is Thornbite Staff - with Soldevi Adnate (and with Priest of Forgotten Gods) and Gravecrawler - you have another copy of Phyrexian Altar. Granted it requires more mana and setup than Phyrexian Altar, but if you don't want to use paradox engine to achieve the same effect with sacrificing and replaying Gravecrawler, then this is the next best thing.

Further to the comments onKaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH
Bruna, the Fading Light make sure you understand that she doesn't work if you play her with Kaalia of the Vast. She only works if you cast her from your hand. And is only really cool (other than she has unburial) when Gisela, the Broken Blade is in the graveyard, Brisela, Voice of Nightmares is pretty cool, win-con wouldn't go that far, but pretty cool. Just HIGH CMC and need the other half to be useful. Doesn't work with Quicksilver Amulet or any type of Reanimate either.
Sensei's Divining Top is good for pulling a A/D/D from the top of your deck into your hand. Nothing worse than an unblockable Kaalia of the Vast and No A/D/D to play for free. It also draw enables the tutors, like pull a Razaketh, the Foulblooded with Vampiric Tutor (if you drew it that turn) and then grab it with the derpy dreidel for the win.
You play more control than I do for sure, You might want to choose 1 or maybe 2, but 3 CMC6, and 2 CMC4 is too much I think. Maybe another tutor and just pull one or the other, keep the best, tutor for it. Cycling is even still a bit too much, if it was it would be amazing.
Can't say much, deck looks pretty impressive and lethal. When you get more ramp, you see more Turn-2/3 Combos.

Hey, for a Dimir Commander consider the The Scarab God?
Combine the aristocrat strategy and reanimation? You don't have to play Zombie tribal with Scarab, value creatures are just as good. Get value from creatures when they ETB, when you sac them with sac outlets and when they are reanimated.
Creatures such as: Mulldrifter, Baleful Strix, Hostage Taker, Plaguecrafter, Champion of Wits, Clever Impersonator, Phyrexian Metamorph, etc. Can still include Zombies: Carrion Feeder, Cryptbreaker, Gravecrawler, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Fleshbag Marauder. Consecrated Sphinx, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Razaketh, the Foulblooded are great creatures with Buried Alive or Windfall and reanimation. Sheoldred, Whispering One is also a good reanimation target, at reanimating one of your value creatures each turn.
