Spell_Slam on Rakdos, Lord of riots Budget build

4 days ago

Great choice for a budget!

Piranha Marsh is a suprisingly effective land. I'm often very happy to play this on turn 5 to get Rakdos out.

Insolent Neonate is also surprisngly effective as an enabler with Menace. Being able to use him as card draw later is a big bonus.

Duplicant is .75 cents. That should be cheap enough to make your budget, right? It's removal and potentially another fatty that can be very cheap with Rakdos.

Knollspine Dragon is 1.28, but being able to draw tons of cards after an attack is brutal.

Steel Hellkite is .99 cents. Definitely worth an include.

Increasing Ambition is 1.26, which is pretty cheap for a good tutor.

Dragon Mage hits hard and wheels you into more fatties. .20 cents.

Demonlord Belzenlok is 1$ can has a pretty good chance of drawing you a lot of cards.

Pestilence Demon is freakin' awesome. .48 cents.

When Sire Of Insanity gets out early, the game usually ends. .67 cents.

Gorgon's Head doesn't make much sense here since most of your pingers don't hit creatures.

Staff of Nin is cool, but just way too expensive on mana to be worth it.

Ill-Gotten Inheritance seems pretty weak. You don't want your enablers at 4 mana, usually.

Morgue Burst is really expensive. It just doesn't seem worth it.

Tectonic Giant could easily be cut.

Since a lot of the budget mana rocks are 3 mana, maybe you should look into more 2 mana or less pingers, so that you can get to your Rakdos on turn 4 more often.

Part-timeMTG on CMR: Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

Hello! Thank you for the upvote and comment; I've had alot of fun with this brew. Steel Hellkite is mostly just a creature catch-all with his sweep ability. It's also nifty with Necrotic Ooze as a way to sneak in a sweeper effect. That's the main purpose, but Razaketh, the Foulblooded is another great option and I have him in the maybe board as well.

I'll hop over and take a look at your list. Have a good one!

Hey man, love the deck! Gyruda is a very interesting route to take with Sidisi, and I'm all for it. Just a questions, though:

One last thing: Do you think you could help me with my Sidisi deck? I'm always looking for a fresh pair of eyes on it. Hope this advice helps, and as always, Happy Tapping!

Honestly, I’d swap Growth Spiral for Risen Reef. It is true that you don’t have many elementals, but just your commander being an elemental makes it worth it.

Steel Hellkite is a good card in mono color decks that have trouble removing certain permanent types. Like enchantments for red, black, and blue. But your color combo is the best for removing anything that’s a problem.

Expedition Map usually isn’t worth running unless you have utility lands or super powerful lands. It doesn’t really ramp, which is what holds it back.

Frost Lynx doesn’t really impact the board much. Especially since some of the greatest threats don’t need to attack or tap to be a pain.

Narset, Parter of Veils, Snapcaster Mage, Ponder, Preordain, Gitaxian Probe seem like cards that fit a spellslinger deck rather than a good stuff value deck. I don’t know if you’re trying to do that with your deck or not. Just be careful to not do so many different things with your deck that it ends up doing none of them well.

Elmoisamac on Kokusho Reanimator

Great list! I think you should consider reducing the numbers of 4-6 drops to speed the deck up a bit.

Cards to consider removing: Dusk Legion Zealot - only drawing one time seems minimal Steel Hellkite - Maybe too pricey Vampire Hexmage - Not very impactful imo Thief of Blood - Keep an eye on this one, the floor seems low.

Cards to consider adding: Phyrexian Reclamation Victimize Necropotence Phyrexian Arena Wound Reflection Darksteel Ingot Zulaport Cutthroat

multimedia on Hail to Kolaghan King!

2 months ago

Hey, for the low budget good job for your first Commander deck.

Consider a Goblin and Dragon theme? This would give your overall deck a more focused theme instead of just playing random creatures such as Diregraf Ghoul and Spinal Centipede. I suggest this because when Kolaghan attacks she pumps any creatures you control and Goblins can make lots of token creatures. This kind of strategy is call go wide. Which means attacking with lots of creatures, a wide battlefield of creatures.

Cards to consider adding:

Other Draw/Tutors

Other Ramp

Other Dragons

Other Goblins

Other Removal

Other Lands

Good luck with your deck.

In: Dragonlord Silumgar - Out: Keiga, the Tide Star Clear upgrade.

In: Primevals' Glorious Rebirth - Out: Spell Rupture Cut a counterspell in favour of Primeval to recover from a board wipe instead of trying to prevent one.

In: Ugin, the Spirit Dragon - Out: Despark Moving the deck balance more towards asymetrical boardwipes instead of single target removals. Ugin and Primeval moved the average CMC to 4.0 which is quite high. I'll decide after some playtesting if Ugin should stay or not, maybe in favour of ramp like Skyshroud Claim

In: Return of the Wildspeaker - Out: Swords to Plowshares I can see Return of the Wildspeaker doing alot of work in this deck, 10 cards for 5 mana or a combat trick to close the game.

In: Urza's Ruinous Blast - Out: Ryusei, the Falling Star More reliable board wipe since I control when it happens and not my opponents.

In: Numot, the Devastator - Out: Steel Hellkite Improvement in color density to help synergize with Jegantha, Ramos and Morophon, white and blue needed the most help.

I left Niv-Mizzet Reborn in the deck for now, in goldfishing he usually draws me 1-3 cards which is not bad for a 5 colored mana dragon that can be cast with a simple Jegantha tap.

Down to 25 dragons, which is the lowest I want to go. I'd like to make room for Skyshroud Claim due to the higher average CMC and also still planning on adding Fire Covenant whenever I get my hands on it.

NeonEndymion Just getting around to look at your comments in more details now.. I remember looking at Magmaquake earlier and it would be great if it wasn't for that double red mana and Jegantha... lol

Considered your advice and made the following changes: Feels like it made an overall improvement to the deck, I will add Dragonlord Silumgar and Fire Covenant when/if I manage to get my hands on them. Thanks again for the help.

In: Heroic Intervention - Out: Arcane Denial

In: Steely Resolve - Out: Path to Exile

In: Morophon, the Boundless - Out: Chromium, the Mutable

In: Ramos, Dragon Engine - Out: Hypersonic Dragon

In: Steel Hellkite - Out: Spellbound Dragon

In: Rhythm of the Wild - Out: Negate
