Nameless Inversion might not be a bad choice for spot removal. Not too sure what you would really swap it out for though. Rend Flesh might also be a good swap out for Go for the Throat. It costs an extra mana but the effect is similar and it costs less(since budget is of the essence).

Snap157 on Rakdos; Burn It Down

4 months ago

Alrighty then let's get you all set!

You've got some big things and that's not bad with your commander, but you'll need some cheaper burn spells if Rakdos can really work. With that being said, Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, Bump in the Night, and Rift Bolt are your best friends. As for land base, try to shy away from basics, but add in as many rakdos duals that don't come in tapped as possible. I'll get you started down below.

While using rakdos, keep in mind that he takes away only colorless mana, so huge eldrazi such as Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Desolation Twin and It That Betrays can all go out for free if you play it right.

It's also important to keep in mind that the ability only impacts creatures, so super expensive things like Din of the Fireherd, Subterranean Tremors don't belong.

Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:

replace with:

With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!

Waxmane Baku great control. Really great.

Yosei, the Morning Star fuck. Yes!

Surprised not to see Rend Flesh or the basic Murder. Dark Ritual would be good as well.

Rescue from the Underworld gets you returns. Wretched Confluence would be good too, Devour in Shadow is expensive but works.

Human Frailty is amazing when you realize more than half of all commanders are in fact Human, and a lot of really good creatures are humans too.

also Gruesome Encore can be upgraded. Same with Rend Flesh and Deathmark. Rootgrapple and Showstopper are trash

The previous posts gave a lot of great imputs.

Most Infect decks are usually mono green for a turn 3-4 kills as mentioned.

You should use 4x Mutagenic Growth That card is bonker for any infect deck.

You pretty much need 4x Plague Stinger as well. infect + flying is always a great thing.

Underworld Connections should probably be traded for Phyrexian Arena

Cut the big infect creatures and play weaker ones to make best uses of Hand of the Praetors

Inkmoth Nexus is the best goddamn land you can use, but the 24$ price tag comes with it.

Some other control spells not mentioned you can use are: Harsh Scrutiny - Grasp of Darkness - Rend Flesh - Murder - Hero's Downfall . You should probably pick a turn 1 spell to help the mana curve.

What you could remove from your deck for something better:

(2-3 lands) - Flensermite - Tragic Slip - Phyrexian Vatmother - Whispering Specter - Paragon of Open Graves - Underworld Connections.

Goodluck!! :)

Behind the Scenes and Unburial Rites aren't legal cards in this decklist; they have white mana symbols in their text boxes that technically means they are outside your commander's color identity.

Permeating Mass seems like an interesting 1-drop Spirit to include. Shuts down indestructible and other annoying creatures your opponents might choose to attack with.

Rend Flesh is on-theme and is far more effective removal than something like Tar Snare or Demon's Grasp.

Bounteous Kirin can really buffer your life total in conjunction with Iname as One's high mana cost and the slew of Spirits you're playing.

Forked-Branch Garami seems like powerful tribal recursion.

Petalmane Baku can fix your colors and ramp mana, which is important when you want to cast your 12-cmc commander.

Besides the fact that it is a staple mana fixer for EDH, Kodama's Reach is an Arcane spell, which has synergy with some of your effects, plus it's a flavor win.

He Who Hungers is a powerful counter to control decks, and provides an outlet for your weaker Spirits.

Soulless Revival is a superior Raise Dead because of the Splice onto Arcane ability.

Arashi, the Sky Asunder gives you repeatable flying removal, or one-shot flying board clear.

Death Denied provides even more recursion; plus it's an Arcane spell.

Haru-Onna is a pretty generous card advantage engine for Spirits.

Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse hits opponents' hands hard by exiling their cards.

Myojin of Night's Reach is another hard-hitting card disadvantaging Spirit.

Hana Kami is cheap and can be used to recur an Arcane spell for more Splicing shenanigans.

Wear Away is the Naturalize variant this deck can make the most use out of.

Great decklist! Very flavorful, and I love how these Kamigawa cards are being utilized!
