Reckless Spite Discussion

Ok. So, here're my suggestions; feel free to ignore any or all of them, if you so choose:

CARD DRAW/SELECTION: This is a big part of EDH.

TUTORS: These will make your deck more consistent.

RAMP: I think you're running too many lands for an aggro deck; also, your ramp package has room for improvement. Replacing a few lands with rocks and potentially some more creatures can make the deck a lot better.

REMOVAL: You have a lot of good removal spells, mainly because a lot of your removal is more than a one-for-one (see Fell the Mighty , Crackling Doom and Return to Dust ). In a format with three opponents, you typically want to be doing more than trading one-for-ones, a notable exception being Swords to Plowshares , which is an absurdly powerful card. I suggest running some of the following:

MANA BASE: Untapped lands are the best lands, but once you hit three colors, it can be tough to make your mana work while coming in untapped. Consider the following:

CREATURES: There're some creatures I think you should upgrade from the Maybeboard:

MISCELLANEOUS: There're some other cards you might like. Consider the following:

  • Shared Animosity : One time, many moons ago, I built a modern goblins deck with this. It was alright/terrible in Modern, but in a relatively slow-moving format like EDH it can be a real powerhouse.

  • Smallpox / Pox : Smallpox is easily one of my favorite cards in EDH, and may be good with your high land count, even if you choose to cut three or four lands. It'll depend on your meta and your final deck list. It could be awful, but it could be good. Pox is much more likely to be terrible, but is worth having on your radar.

  • Suppression Field : You're running very few planeswalkers, fetches, and with a little crafting, you can have very few creatures and/or artifacts with activated abilities. In my meta, this card is absurd. Especially against me.

  • Price of Glory : This discourages instant-speed interaction. In a deck like this, it's very likely to hose blue-players without really touching you.

  • Necrogen Mists : This is a good way to limit your opponents' ability to oppose you, especially if you choose to run Falkenrath Gorger off your Maybeboard.

  • Armageddon : Speaking of limiting your opponents' ability to stop you... Just make sure you cast it while you're ahead. Decree of Annihilation is good for this at instant-speed.

  • Stranglehold : Everyone searches. Make 'em stop.

  • Aura of Silence : This is good in most metas. The tax effect is brutal, and the sacrifice has the ability to break a combo in a pinch.

  • Rule of Law : This'll hose pretty much any combo deck. I hate playing against this card. (I play Storm.)

  • Authority of the Consuls : This is a good way to make sure opponents can't poop out blockers too quick.

This seems like a pretty mean deck against creatures. A big dumb splashy thing that would benefit from that is Rise of the Dark Realms . It gives you a pretty ridiculous board-state made up of all the monsters Toshi-sama has killed. If you're looking to make tokens, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Ghoulcaller Gisa are good options. Exsanguinate may also be a good finisher or a good way to put you ahead life-wise.

Instant wise Reckless Spite , Tribute to Hunger , and Vona's Hunger all seem like cards that could go in the deck.

Reckless Spite and Curtains' Call are almost strictly better than Ashes to Ashes by virtue of instant speed. Malicious Affliction is pretty great as well

I'm not sure about Reckless Spite in a mono-red deck... :P

You probably want more instant speed removal to deal with Voltron creatures, as well as non-targeted removal. You can try Curtains' Call, Dismember, Doom Blade, Geth's Verdict, Go for the Throat, Hero's Demise, Hero's Downfall, Malicious Affliction, Murderous Cut, Reckless Spite, Slaughter Pact, Snuff Out, Terror, Ultimate Price, Victim of Night, and Vona's Hunger. Attrition is also good if you have Zombies to sacrifice. Glaring Spotlight and Arcane Lighthouse are useful for dealing with hexproof and shroud.

Illusionist's Bracers would greatly help out your commander's ability. Also, consider Training Grounds. You could also seriously use a Sol Ring and probably a Thran Dynamo to help accelerate your ability to use Oona. You also might want to consider Notorious Throng and Stinkdrinker Bandit to take advantage of the fact that you are creating a bunch of flying faerie rogues which are presumably attacking, especially the latter.

I'm not sure whether Wydwen, the Biting Gale is quite worth it in your deck, unless I'm missing something, so I'd consider dropping it.

Catalog also seems a bit weak without madness or graveyard recursion. Consider Glimmer of Genius, Hieroglyphic Illumination, Thieves' Fortune, or Thirst for Knowledge instead.

Violet Pall is a bit too much mana for what you are getting even in a faerie deck. Consider Reckless Spite, Malicious Affliction, Eyeblight's Ending, or Doom Blade instead.

If you want the deck to be legal in the modern format, I'd remove Control Magic, Memory Lapse, and Reckless Spite, as they are not legal in the format.

Reckless Spite or Ashes to Ashes instead of Curtains' Call? Depends of your playgroup, of course.
