Rix Maadi Reveler Discussion

A discussion of some of the Maybeboard cards:
- Prized Amalgam - Simple, great creature in graveyard eccentric decks, reliable blocker and sac fodder.
- Rix Maadi Reveler - Cycle a card, or pitch your hand and draw 3, strictly worse Ox of Agonas; which is still more than good enough.
- Rotting Regisaur - Big beat stick, fuels the discard engine and another card that has synergy with Flamewake Phoenix.
- Collective Brutality - Potentially snag lots of value out of this one: drain your opponent, kill a thing and look at their hand, you can even get value out of the perceived downside.
And then there's this thing...
A lot of people (probably rightfully) assume this card is just a troll, but, at least theoretically, it can be a great board-in against Control or slower Combo decks. Successfully resolving this spell could be back-breaking as long as you can live to make use of it; the zombies are nothing special, but it fuels Escape for Ox/Kroxa, and it removes your opponents hand from the equation, that means you could potentially pitch your opponents win-con or board wipe and ruin any hope they had of stabilizing while you're reaping the benefits.
Thoughts and comments are much appreciated.~

I have found that Pack Rat is underwhelming. I often play it in two just for it to chump on turn 5-6 because I just haven’t had the mana to activate it. Champion of Wits is actually not bad, and his ability helps fill the graveyard to escape Kroxa, which is the main reason I played pack rat anyways. I wish it was a 2 drop, and I’m thinking Rix Maadi Reveler might be better suited but idk.

Hi, back with another question about your experience regarding the reanimation package. Hope you don't mind.
I've been goldfishing a bit with my prototype, and I'm worried that there aren't enough opportunities to actually get things in the yard. Your list currently has 7(+2) ways (if I'm correct) of sending things directly to the yard; Faithless Looting , Thrill of Possibility , Wheel of Fortune , Entomb , Buried Alive , Altar of Dementia , and Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion . The two additional ones I'm not counting here are Gamble , because it's unreliable, and Sire Of Insanity , because it's really a payoff rather than an enabler.
How is this working out for you? Do you get enough setup to cater to Alesha and the other reanimation spells? Do you find your creatures hitting the bin through other means often? What about things like Elesh Norn that you won't ever hardcast?
I'd love to hear about your experience, since having an empty yard is a complaint I've seen often from Alesha players.

You need to add more tormenting voice effects. Faithless Looting and Cathartic Reunion for sorcery, Geier Reach Sanitarium for land, Key to the City for artifacts, Rix Maadi Reveler for a budget creature and Seasoned Pyromancer nonbudget.
The second thing you need is fast mana, so put in cards like signets: Rakdos Signet , Orzhov Signet , Boros Signet and the talisman cycle: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Indulgence .

Rix Maadi Reveler is useful in most turn 2-3 situations, as it can set up your hand and dump unnecessary lands. I highly recommend playing it. As for Fireblade Artist , it is very effective against the Bant Scapeshift/Field of the Dead, as it can come down and swing in before they can remove it, and can continually threaten them without having to swing into a Settle the Wreckage . Post-rotation, both of these cards will be powerful against control decks as well as midrange and combo. Fireblade artist's upkeep trigger is great when your opponent has an impassable board and you have already blitzed your hand, then you topdeck rix-maadi reveler, allowing you to draw three cards for four mana and the cost of sacrificing one creature, which is pretty great in rakdos deck.

Ransack the Lab / Strategic Planning is probably the closest Looting effect we're probably ever going to see. I think Rix Maadi Reveler and Smuggler's Copter are also somewhat acceptable replacements as well. Lastly while Painful Truths doesn't fuel the graveyard it is an exceptional source of card draw in three color decks.

This list seems sweet. I've been playing various Rakdos and Gruul aggro decks over the past standard rotation and enjoying a fair amount of success. I think the first thing to improve the list would be to cut Vampire of the Dire Moon in favor of Fanatical Firebrand or Gutterbones . Since you don't really have vampire synergy and are looking to kill as quick as possible, those creatures are generally more efficient at doing that. You also might want to look to improve the curve by cutting a few 3 drops in favor of a few two and one drops. Personally, I'd include something like Rix Maadi Reveler or Fireblade Artist . As for what three drops to cut, that's up to you. I'd also prefer running Dragonskull Summit over the Bloodfell Caves and Blast Zone . Your sideboard actually looks great as is, though I'd maybe cut the planeswalkers in favor of Blood Sun , Alpine Moon , or two more copies of Legion's End to deal with Field of the Dead + Scapeshift if you see that cropping up in whatever meta you play in. Overall though, the list seems great and I'll be trying something similar myself very soon.
