Razaketh's Rite Discussion

Poly_raptor on Yawgmoth, Scorpion King

Thanks for the suggestions guys, great help. I’m going to re draft today and update.

bushido_man96 I can’t believe I’ve missed Karn's Bastion that’s a great shout.

Izzy- the reanimate is a good idea, gives me a bit of extra protection if Yawgmoth gets hit so I’ll add some in.

Chhris I did consider infect, however, one of my friends has an infect deck and I hate playing against it, not a huge fan of the mechanic so I don’t want to run too much of it for that reason haha!

I thought I had put Razaketh's Rite in the list but I’ve missed it. Bedevil and Bontu's Last Reckoning are both good shouts.

Thanks v much.

Hey!! Great list so far. New Yawg is incredible. Have you considered running even 1 or 2 more Infect creatures as an alternate win-con? Obviously new Yawg is amazing with infect, and even though that's not your primary strategy here, it would work for you.

More board control may benefit you as well whilst you prepare the combo. Bedevil is amazing in Rakdos decks, and I like Bontu's Last Reckoning as well. Havoc Festival is dumb but may work for you. Also, Razaketh's Rite gives you the tools to search for your combo, plus added cycling for archfiend and cycling.

Overall I think this is great and on the way!!

WUBRG87 on The Queen of Corpses

skillz2125, so true. Especially the good ones like: Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor and the most expensive of them all: Imperial Seal . The best one I own is Diabolic Intent but that's in another deck. I suppose Corpse Harvester is, and he's obviously in here but thats on a creature. Other than that though, I have Diabolic Tutor and Razaketh's Rite and Mastermind's Acquisition available but theyre so expensive CMC wise. And I wouldnt even know what to cut for them.

With Ad Nauseam you should always be carefull with huge cmc costs like Razaketh's Rite and the the amount of 4 / 5 drops you run as when you would go for a line without angels's grace it could hurt you a lot more than it should!!

x12721 on Never Play In Graveyards

What Pikobyte said. But for specific suggestions, I'll list them below.


- Brood Monitor isn't super strong in EDH. Not necessarily a must-cut, but one I'd definitly keep in mind. - Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is super powerful, but the mana requirements are pretty tough in a three-color deck. - Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis doesn't do much for your game plan. You have much better ways for forced sacrifice. - Scribe of the Mindful should probably be cut, unless you really want to keep the amount of Instant/Sorcery spells high. - Sphinx of Foresight , while interesting, is just kinda... meh. - Thallid Soothsayer is okay, but there are better sac outlets available to you. - Verdant Force is far too expensive and slow for what it does. - Weaver of Currents doesn't produce colored mana, which is important for a three-color deck.
- Curse of Disturbance isn't great, and not something you want to spend your T3 play on. - Underworld Connections could be cut in favor of better draw spells. Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study would be great here. -I respect the Exquisite Blood / Sanguine Bond combo, but without both cards you're stuck with a 5 CMC enchantment that doesn't do much for you.
- Haunted Fengraf and Rogue's Passage are both underwhelming, I'd look at replacing them with lands that produce colored mana or have stronger utility.
- Cast Down , Doom Blade , Incubation / Incongruity , Price of Fame , and Vona's Hunger are all decent removal, but again, you should prioritize permanents with those effects. - Dismiss and Unwind both seem like they're thrown in here. There's not much use for them. There are even creatures that can counter spells. - Thought Scour is worse than Stitcher's Supplier in this deck.
Nothing specific to replace here, but I would look into better (cheaper CMC) mana rocks and other value engines.

Spirits on Un-FLICKING-believable!!!!!!!!!!

8 months ago

Hi hoardofnotions,

Thanks for the comments on Spirits Wall.

What do you guys use to value your decks? We use Deckstats.net Un-FLICKING-believable!!!!!!!!!! Deck. $60.82 - Basic Lands $1.10 = $59.72. We always found TCGPlayer.com (Sidebar) was always missing cards (Caution triangle), and was so variable made it unpleasant. Interested to know what you guys settled on.

Rakdos Charm in all honesty is not the best, but it is modular (graveyard protection), and it kills a go-wide token strategy that you indicated to have issues with. Also, or alternatively, you can run board clearing, like Chandra's Ignition or Whipflare.

Ontop of Dualcaster Mage + Ghostly Flicker + Piranha Marsh, Archaeomancer + Peregrine Drake also work.Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon can also, but he is high risk. Maybe some additional Tutors to consistently get the Ghostly Flicker.

Rite of Replication + Dualcaster Mage / Naru Meha, Master Wizard is infinite Wizards (Don't even need to kick it). Rite of Replication is good on it's own too, especially with all the ETB's you run. Add a Gray Merchant of Asphodel and that's a win-con (unless the opponent is playing heavy life gain), does 60 damage to each opponent ( x 6 Gray Merchant of Asphodel + 5 triggers) by itself, and you gain 180 life.

I see the mana fixing in the base, but so many tapped lands can slow you down too much. May overcome this with the ramp?

Dinrova Horror I understand he can be a powerhouse, and recurring him makes him good, but High CMC, and can't target yourself (efficiently anyway).

Dreamscape Artist that is a hell of a price to pay, I wouldn't. If it could pull any land maybe, but not basic.

I'm not sure Duplicant is effective enough, and high CMC, for his $ cost in a budget format. There's lots of ETB's to abuse, for sure, he is one of them, but not sure worth it. Would rather have money for a Rite of Replication.

Withered Wretch and Ingot Chewer are ok, but I would rather have a Rakdos Charm, I realize can't flicker them, but those creatures aren't the greatest anyway, and Withered Wretch doesn't benefit from flicker.

I would play but evaluate Discovery / Dispersal, doesn't provide any card advantage, have to see how often it is Surveil a card into the graveyard that you return as a %. If it inconsistently works, I wouldn't run it. If you find your usually recurring the card it throws, or your aggressive enough to dig for a combo piece, might be ok. Hard to evaluate.

Evil Twin (CMC4) can be great, or not. Situational. Same with Memory Plunder, too random, too situational. Difficult to evaluate it's value, I usually stay away from those.

Animate Dead is very high $, again would rather see something like a Rite of Replication in it's place.

Nightscape Familiar is not a terrible ramp, and he has Regenerate, so can block Non-Flample pretty good.

Devastation Tide scares me to, because you probably rebuild your board the slowest (or close to the slowest). I wouldn't want to reset myself, after doing all the ramping work. Might be situational good on occasion, but rarely on a miracle. There is a blue card (not Cyclonic Rift that does opponents stuff, name escapes me now, but it has a very high CMC)

Commit / Memory at CMC4 seems pretty high too. Seems to much, lose the game with it in hand and unable to cast, or saving CMC4 and don't end up using it. Not Flash or anything (other than the copy spell guys) to really utilize the saved mana, or draw, etc. Some with the artifact returns/recur though.

Burnished Hart is really good, I know he doesn't ETB, but if you can recur him, lots of ramping. A little $ expensive too.

Most of your drawing is CMC 3+ which, I understand early turns your playing tapped lands for the most part, so you're slowly moving, then turn 3-5 your trying to draw. You have a couple tutors, but you might get overwhelmed before you can get to it. Luckily in a multi-pod, you'll probably be left alone for a while, but hard to evaluate if your fast enough. Since you restrict to only Tier 4+ commanders, you may have enough time, our league doesn't restrict, just restricts the budget, Animar or Brago, you'd never get ahead of, so you have that going for you!

Cloud of Faeries + Deadeye Navigator + Dimir Aqueduct or Izzet Boilerworks or Rakdos Carnarium does indeed make infinite mana.

Razaketh's Rite is high CMC, but the Cycling makes it playable if drawn in opening rounds.

Sever the Bloodline is great for Horde removal too (or indestructible), or Bile Blight. Not sure how often you see it though, we have 1/1 Snake and 2/2 Wolf and */* Vampire in our league. Tragic Slip too (instant speed).

Murder is a good budget removal too. Can free up some $ with a Dissipate instead of Counterspell.

I like the draw on Illusionist's Stratagem but the CMC4 sucks, it's still good though because it triggers the 2 creatures, which you need.

Custodi Lich is awesome (for the extra draw and the sacrifice), but his $ and his CMC5 make him not budget friendly. Plus he many not even get the target your really want to kill, and sorcery speed. Once the Monarch is on the table, if you don't have a way to take it back, you may actually hurt yourself by giving away card advantage.

Notion Thief is best with Wheel of Fortune type effects, or when you play "all players draw a card" type effects. Not sure if you've found him consistent enough in this flicker type build?

Good deck idea, like the flicker. +1.

Spirits on Budget Thraximundar - EDH $50

9 months ago

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.

Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.

Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.

Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.

Archfiend of Depravity $1.01 can dominate this format, you've seen it from my Glissa, the Traitor deck.

Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.

Soul's Fire also feels wrong, a turn you cast Thraximundar you won't have mana for it, only a handful of creatures going to deal enough to be of consequence.

Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.

Nighthowler is a better Wight of Precinct Six (you can run both), he is CMC3, but he also counts your graveyard, and he also has Bestow if you have the extra mana (modular)

Consuming Aberration is a higher CMC, but he can also build the graveyards, remember that time SolomonsEfreet had him out. But high CMC. $1.90 too.

Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,

You have Fleshbag Marauder & Merciless Executioner but missing their good buddy Slum Reaper $0.19.

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are great for color fixing and ramping. Wayfarer's Bauble goes onto the battlefield for CMC1 more.

Deadeye Navigator has lots of positive applications in your build, but he's $2.15. I won't list everyone, you can read the LTB/ETB guys, but Peregrine Drake is infinite ETB & infinite mana.

Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.

Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.

You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .

Vona's Hunger was pretty good when SolomonsEfreet played it.

Diabolic Tutor for Torment of Hailfire or the other half of Rite of Replication / Gray Merchant of Asphodel win-con.

Dark Petition is $2.32 but can assist with casting the Gray Merchant of Asphodel, I also don't mind Razaketh's Rite because I just cycle it for if it's drawn early on.

Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.

I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.

One of the nice things with Thraximundar is you should get left alone early on because your not an immediate threat vs. someone like your Xenagos.

I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

Havengul Lich has some recursion built in, but wouldn't say he's really that synergistic with Thraximundar but he can target others graveyards.

He's not a Xenagos, God of Revels but a good serviceable Commander in $50 budget. Crosis, the Purger no way lol, Sedris, the Traitor King would also work but he the same CMC anyway,
