Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion
1 day ago
An interesting list!
I would look at lowering/smoothing out your curve, I have found it helps improve the functionality of a deck.

This comes from love, I also have a Shirei deck and hate to see people misplaying him. Desecrated Tomb is overrated and should be pulled out, it only triggers once per turn. A better replacement would be Lightning Coils which gives you more creatures and more powerful creatures. I would recommend also pulling Liliana's Shade , which is a four drop for a land to your hand, Skittering Surveyor does the same thing and is a three drop. Soldevi Adnate is also pretty bad, most cards with a tap ability are in this type of deck. First you would only be getting 4 mana at the most, which is fine but underutilized. My final creature suggestion is to add more heavies. Where is the win-con? Where are the super demons who destroy things? Ob Nixilis, Unshackled , is perfect as is Razaketh, the Foulblooded
You also do not have commander protection. Sure you can re-animate him but you lose all of the creatures that go to the graveyard that turn before he died. Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots , Darksteel Plate , and most importantly Dark Privilege . Which is a sac outlet and protection.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded tutes for anything

I was getting pretty upset last week, when I saw God-Eternal Kefnet and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries then I saw the Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead , I abuse him with Oblivion Ring in other decks, Brago, the Banisher $50 EDH with Reveillark and Alesha, Boros' Crusade $50 EDH with Fiend Hunter , but this one BLEW my mind, it's so simple, good on it's own, and doesn't need any off-synergy cards!
Sounds like your having great success with this type of build! When T2-T4 good ol' Buried Alive is the back-up plan, in pretty good shape. He's the Master of Cruelties should never show mercy! If they winning on T7 that's pretty good too, no fun in dragging the game out past T5!
Agreed Hatred is just too much of a life commitment, even when casting it on a Lifelink creature, the initial burden of life is too much, Leonin Relic-Warder is far more value as an alternative win-con! I always find it strange that people fear Kaalia of the Vast , sit down at table with Kess, Dissident Mage , Prossh, Skyraider of Kher , and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician , it's wrong evaluation that Kaalia of the Vast is the highest threat, even if I resolve a Avacyn, Angel of Hope early.
Sneak Attack doesn't get me a Buried Alive so it's not as useful, in many cases (without a Razaketh, the Foulblooded or Rune-Scarred Demon ) for example. Sneak Attack needs other synergistic cards to be truly effective (unless you have a Razaketh, the Foulblooded )

I played a total of four games this weekend. I wanted to try using Leonin Relic-Warder , So I intentionally played Two games trying to win with it. well, Both games...I was able to win on T4 using Leonin Relic-Warder . Which at first I thought was going to take awhile to pull off, having to tutor for everything but I found it to be quite simple.
Another game, which was a pod of 5, I won on T6 using the good ol' Buried Alive | Karmic Guide + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Restoration Angel . I could have actually won on T5 but I misplayed. So what I did was, having 3 Mana left open, I Grim Tutor on T5, grabbing Reanimate , setting me up for the win on T6, when I should have played Mausoleum Secrets (which I also had in hand) to tutor for Reanimate and with the remaining I could have played Reanimate that same turn. Which goes to show, I still need a lot more play time, So these simple mistakes don't happen.
The last game was 1V1. I could have won on T5 with Kaalia of the Vast + Master of Cruelties but I didn't end up playing it because, well, I felt a little bad. And I ended up losing on T7 that game But realistically, we could just say I won if I hadn't shown mercy.
Sir_Flash Lifegaining is working but its hard to maintain to utilize Hatred . The reason being is i'm almost instantly the target. It's hard holding onto life when i'm up against 3 or even 4 other players and they're all pinging/attacking me each turn. The lifegain is there but it never maintains along with my tutoring, just makes it harder for the use of Hatred . But I have yet to die by life total becoming 0. I'm either knocked out by infect or by someone else going infinite before I do.
And the thing with Gamble , every time I play it, I cross my fingers and I clench my jaw and think to myself "I can win if it plays in my favor" but then it's like it can set me back a bit if it doesn't. I may have played this deck a total of 25 times so far and used Gamble about 8 of those times and it's played in my favor each time except for once (during a tournament of all games, go figure)
Although Sneak Attack is great. I don't see it fitting the tempo of this build. I could be wrong, Spirits would have a better assessment about this than I would but so far from playing, the deck would have to alter a bit to accommodate Sneak Attack which would take on a slightly different build. I have yet to win a game with creatures attacking, the only thing I could see it working with is throwing out Rune-Scarred Demon or Doom Whisperer for some quick tutoring and possibly even Demonlord Belzenlok or Razaketh, the Foulblooded . But with a to cast and an additional to play, it gets me thinking of just throwing in Diabolic Tutor as an additional tutor source. But I could certainly be wrong and i'd be more than happy to receive some clarification as i'm still fairly new and getting a hang of this.

Lifegain is very important, it's like mana for this deck. I don't have enough life when needed for Hatred and even if I have an attacking Lifelink creature, sometimes don't have enough. Plus it's CMC5 isn't great.
If I had Mox Diamond I would play it.
I swapped Reveillark back in, and moved out Angel of Serenity to try Leonin Relic-Warder . See how that goes, I'm below proper % of A/D/D now as well. Probably will take Reveillark out and put Angel of Serenity back in. 22 A/D/D was marginal, but I'm hoping the addition of Faithless Looting counteracts the 1 less A/D/D.

I like this. I created my own Shadowborn deck too. Razaketh, the Foulblooded is super helpful for these decks too.

The turn I cast Kaalia of the Vast I want to Equip Lightning Greaves , If someone tries to remove in response, I can be flexible, is it ? ? ? I won't know until I see what's coming. It also allows me to (without CMC2) change my color to . Where Flickering Ward costs me mana () AND is Sorcery speed, it's the same as Lightning Greaves basically. Also, Mother of Runes can block and then give herself Protection from the Attacking creatures color. She can also be sacrificed to Razaketh, the Foulblooded and often is. She protects Kaalia of the Vast , allows the Razaketh, the Foulblooded play, then Tutors the win-con for a and 2 life. If someone removes Kaalia of the Vast with Flickering Ward on the stack, your not going to be having a good day. Also, the turn I cast Kaalia of the Vast i don't want to have to wait for an additional to cast Flickering Ward that's a whole turn slower! Mother of Runes helps with Mausoleum Secrets as well.
A strong synergy with Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + Razaketh, the Foulblooded , tutor as many times as you have 2 life (half your life less 1). Easy to pull Buried Alive or Reanimate or Goblin Bombardment . The issue is to cast Goblin Bombardment you need to pause the infinite combo, but I figure tutor some CMC0 rocks and Goblin Bombardment and then restart the combo with Restoration Angel . Depends on mana situations and life situations. Either way, it tutors every card you need to win to your hand. Cloudshift also has synergy with this combo and is good with ETB A/D/D.
Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + Entomb ( Razaketh, the Foulblooded ) + Reanimate isn't outside the realm of a T1 win for ++, especially since Leonin Relic-Warder can untap your Chrome Mox on first cast as well. Gemstone Caverns + Godless Shrine + Chrome Mox + Mana Crypt does it T1.
