Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion
4 days ago
UPDATE: Still trying to cut a deck w/ Reanimator, Discard, & Sacrifice elements; a 3 for 1 if need be.
Right now, I dunno how to try & find what cuts to put in/what to replace; & a lot of good cards are currently in the Maybeboard. I do want this to be Reanimator based, Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon (Worldgorge Win.) Hell's Caretaker , Everyone Discard like mad Waste Not , Bone Miser , among other effects, & Sacrifice for effects more beneficial to you, than your foes; likely resulting to benefitting from your other cards in exchange for Sidisi, Undead Vizier , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , even Doomed Necromancer ! Some are hybrids of 2/3 of these effects; Maybe all 3!
So I'll ask again. What would you cut, and what to replace? Saying "Add" doesn't seem to be necessary anymore.
Yep, I'm on a status where I do want help again. I'll see what else to do about my CHAOS deck, but this is also important currently.
Thank you for responding (If so...)! :D

Thank you so much!
Yes. You're right about the Birthing Pod into Razaketh, the Foulblooded combo. I actually had it in the deck for some time, but, as weird as it sounds, I think I took it out because it was too easy to win with. But I should at least add it to the Maybeboard, just so that people know about it. Maybe I'll put it back into the main list sometime.
Now the Desecrated Tomb idea. It's brilliant! Absolutely brilliant. I never realized that it could replace the Zombie Infestation in the Greater Good combo. I just need an extra discard outlet on the field, and a creature to exile every time, but that shouldn't be hard. I don't mind you double posting, especially if it's for something as good as this!

Understand what your saying, most decks that rely on the commanders, usually once the commander resolves (caster maintains priority), it's too late, whatever it is that needs to get done, is done instant speed so removal is hard.
Some commanders like Kaalia of the Vast , that have to resolve, and then pass phases (into combat phase in this case), have a harder time. A few tricks we can use, 1) Grand Abolisher , 2) Silence , 3) Teferi's Protection , 4) Haste ( Dragon Tempest ) 5) Shroud ( Lightning Greaves ).
The way that i've configured this deck is 1) Primary win-con is Buried Alive + Reanimate , 2) Secondary win-con is Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + Goblin Bombardment , 3) still trying to figure it out, currently Worldgorger Dragon + Animate Dead + Dragon Tempest . None of these win-cons use Kaalia of the Vast .
Kaalia of the Vast gives me some high-synergies 1) Kaalia of the Vast + Master of Cruelties eliminates an opponent, 2) Kaalia of the Vast + Razaketh, the Foulblooded usually tutors the win-con. Kaalia of the Vast can also drop in Interactive ADD to solve issues. Definitively no reliance on resolving ADD for combat damage.
What commander do you play, can strategize some plans for you. In the cEDH tournament this weekend, only cast Kaalia of the Vast in 1 of the rounds.

Update from this weekends cEDH tournament.
Won all rounds, but probably should have lost to a Kess, Dissident Mage in round 2, had a Glen Elendra Archmage resolved. I managed to Toxic Deluge it but then they Thoughtseize my Grim Tutor so was waiting for a tutor to pull a Swords to Plowshares . Then they tapped out on casting a Pact of Negation on my Bloodgift Demon (At the time, I only had Reflecting Pool (luckily they had played a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth which enabled it to be ) and they were trying to mitigate my draw. (Note: I kept a 0 land hand in that round because I had Mana Crypt , Arcane Signet , and Dark Ritual in hand. Soon as they had no , successfully resolved my combo (again), they had already Force of Will cast on me earlier.
Anyways, never used the Worldgorger Dragon at all, drew the Bogardan Hellkite in the last round, never played him. Each round got there the same way, Buried Alive + Reanimate . The last round I resolved a Razaketh, the Foulblooded , sac'd Kaalia of the Vast realized I didn't have enough , so had to wait a turn, then cast Kaalia of the Vast again, resolved an Avacyn, Angel of Hope , sac'd Kaalia of the Vast to pull a for Goblin Bombardment (post-combat) sacrifice all the Restoration Angel after casting Buried Alive + Reanimate .
Post the tournament, realized Demonic Consultation was too much of a dead draw, going to replace it with Plunge into Darkness , saw it played a couple times was not horrible, worst case just pulls a tutor usually.
Also worked that evening on replacing Worldgorger Dragon and Bogardan Hellkite but came up with nothing. I primary win-con all rounds, never went to Leonin Relic-Warder which is far safer secondary than Worldgorger Dragon . Still thinking a Doomsday is a better way to go, could do Doomsday + Night's Whisper and build a stack:
Leonin Relic-Warder (discard with Faithless Looting )
That's CMC7 though .
What I really need is another Buried Alive best I can think of is Final Parting >> Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead (to hand), but then still need a Goblin Bombardment . So the combo would be Final Parting + Goblin Bombardment or Animate Dead . So would be CMC9. Better than Doomsday CMC7 (stack) + = CMC10, and doesn't require a same turn enabler like Street Wraith . Still not right though. Hmm.

multimedia I do like the idea of adding more tutors and cutting down on some of my wincons (especially the ones that require going sideways). I've been looking into including the transmute cards as well, like Brainspoil and Dimir House Guard . The reasone why I didn't put Authority of the Consuls and Blind Obedience in is because of my meta. Most of my opponents don't play many creatures, and although tapping their artifacts sounds nice, that 1-turn stall doesn't seem worth it to me. With extort though, we'll see if it makes the cut. I am considering the aristocrat combo you mentioned. My only thought is why would I look for a combo, in order to look for a combo? For that reason, I'm not sure if I'll include Razaketh, the Foulblooded , but I'll playtest with it and see how I like it.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. I don't have any experience with Licia, never played the card, but I do have experience with Mardu and life gaining/aristocrat strategies with Alesha.
Cards to consider to upgrade your deck are tutors and an aristocrat combo. Cards within the budget to consider adding:
- Demonic Tutor
- Diabolic Intent
- Enlightened Tutor
- Blood Artist : combo piece, triggers when any creature dies including your opponents creatures.
- Animate Dead : combo piece, two drop reanimation of your own creature or an opponents.
- Leonin Relic-Warder : combo piece.
- Buried Alive : combo enabler, tutor for both Warder and Razaketh putting them into your graveyard.
- Entomb : combo enabler, tutor for Warder and put it into your graveyard.
- Razaketh, the Foulblooded : combo piece, repeatable tutor.
- Arcane Signet
- Mother of Runes : repeatable protection from targeted removal and in combat for Licia, protection of the color of the blocking creature makes it so it can't block Licia.
- Blind Obedience : repeatable tap of potential blockers your opponents play making it easier for Licia to attack. Extort is a way to gain life and in multiplayer Commander you pay one mana to gain 3 life if you have three opponents.
- Authority of the Consuls
- Reanimate : one drop reanimation, use life to reanimate your creature or opponents.
- Chaos Warp
- Fetid Heath
- Rugged Prairie
- Graven Cairns
The most important cards to consider adding for upgrades are tutors. If you can afford them they're some of the best investments you can make in Commander because they can be played in all decks you make no matter the strategy. When playing combos then tutors are very helpful to find the combo pieces or Necropotence . Tutors can replace high mana cost cards, redundancy or reduce the amount of win conditions. Which in return creates smoother gameplay, reducing the avg. CMC of your deck, speeding up your deck.
Aristocrat strategies can strengthen your deck and give you another avenue to victory using life without needing Licia. Aristocrats are good for gaining life as well as making your opponents lose life which can be a win condition. A combo for Mardu aristocrats is called Razacats. It's Leonin Relic-Warder and Animate Dead with Razaketh, the Foulblooded , but you don't even need Razaketh. He's played with reanimation to tutor for Warder/Animate. Create the loop and then using Warder as repeatable sac to tutor for and assemble other combos. Razaketh's ability to tutor is powerful when you have a lot of life to use.
The two card Leonin Relic-Warder / Animate Dead combo are the cards to consider adding because it creates an infinite dying or creature ETB loop of Warder. If before you create the loop have on the battlefield an aristocrat such as Blood Artist then this combo kills all your opponents and you gain infinite life. The combo has interaction with the overall life gaining strategy. It can be used with Soul Warden / Soul's Attendant . One of them has to be on the battlefield before you create the loop to gain infinite life because Warder is repeatedly ETB and each time you gain 1 life.
When gaining infinite life you can add other cards to win such as Aetherflux Reservoir , Cliffhaven Vampire , Sanguine Bond . Aetherflux is the best option because you can cast it after you have made infinite life and broken the loop to use all the life you gained to kill each opponent. Declare you're gaining infinite life with the combo then break the loop then cast Reservior. Cliffhaven or Bond would have to be along with one of Warden or Attendant on the battlefield before you created the loop.
Sun Titan can reanimate Animate Dead which can be helpful to keep creating the loop as long as Warder is in your graveyard. If you are interested in learning more about this combo then I will explain it further.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Beacon of Immortality
- Storm Herd
- Approach of the Second Sun
- True Conviction
- Minion of the Wastes
- Serra Avatar
- Sorin, Grim Nemesis
- Hide / Seek
- Nyx-Fleece Ram
- Sun Droplet
- Tainted Sigil
- Debt to the Deathless
- Angel of Vitality
- Diabolic Tutor
- 1x Swamp
- 1x Plains
- Tainted Field
The majority of these suggested cuts are high mana cost cards. This is to reduce the high avg. CMC that's 3.7. To improve your deck cut some these high mana cost cards and replace them with low mana cost tutors which can search for and get the better cards into your hand. Good luck with your deck.
