Succumb to Temptation Discussion

TurtleLordMTG on Rakdos, Lord of Burn

1 month ago

Nice deck! +1 If I would suggest something about the playstyle for Rakdos, Lord of Riots it all depends on how you want the deck to work. If you're laying in for a more casual/focused Rakdos-theme deck than this is it, you've got demons, sacrifice, burn etc so nothing to point out there. I would however just generally recommend more card draw since you might quicky run out of your burnspells. Staff of Nin is a good casual draw card but a little bit too slow. You might want to look into cards like Read the Bones , Damnable Pact , Greed , Sign in Blood , Succumb to Temptation , Grim Haruspex , Underworld Connections are just a few cheap (prizewise) draw spells you could use.

And there's also the option for card-selection cards like Faithless Looting which is a really good one, not card draw per-say but it's still card advantage in a way.

The best draw card in black (and maybe in the whole format at least according to me) is Necropotence . Altough a little expensive it does grant some ridiculous card advantage but that's totally up to you if you want to invest in such.

And lastly, if you ever want to take this deck to a more semi-competitive level, the way for this is to just load the deck with some cheap burn and huge creatures with generic mana as the majority of their cmc (like the eldrazi).

BrutalGlory on Olivia & Nahiri's Vampire Masquerade

This is now the 3rd revision. In this revision I removed Olivia's Dragoon , Succumb to Temptation , Murderous Compulsion , Abundant Maw , Fiery Temper , Pale Rider of Trostad , Stromkirk Condemned , Vampire Cutthroat , Bloodrage Brawler , Call the Bloodline , Sanguinary Mage , Furyblade Vampire .

Instead more powerful vampires were added as well as cards that were cheaper with a draw mechanic.

I would switch out Succumb to Temptation for Sign in Blood. You're losing the instant speed, but it's 1 mana cheaper, and you can always use it as a 2-life burn spell in a pinch.

I would also swap Cancel for Mana Leak. It hits 95% of what Cancel hits and doesn't require UU.

Hi,

your deck is very exciting! These two cards come to my mind:

Bitter Revelation for Succumb to TemptationBoth are Sorcery Speed, draw 2 cards for 2 life, but Bitter Revelation fills up your graveyard.

Forbidden Alchemy for Strategic PlanningIt has the benefits of instant speed, digging/discarding one card more and has flashback.

Also, I very much enjoyed reading your articles on pdhhomebase! You guys do a great job!

If I may be so bold to express a wish; Personally I would love to know you perspective on an Izzet deck, preferrably with with similar puzzling trickiness like the Tog - maybe Gelectrode or one of the Guildmages... Do you think that might be a possible deck tech for your website?
