Sulfurous Springs Discussion
1 hour ago
I'm making one of these myself, but with a focus on Darien, King of Kjeldor. Ever thought of using lands like Barbarian Ring, Brushland, Centaur Garden, Llanowar Wastes, Nomad Stadium, Pine Barrens, Salt Flats, Scabland, Sulfurous Springs, or Tomb of Urami? While for my deck, they only help a lot when I have Darien out.. They can get you consistent life loss early on in the game and stay with you throughout.. even if you don't need the mana, you can float it!

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.
Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:
- Strangling Soot
- Rend Flesh
- Wail of the Nim
- Sire Of Insanity
- Falkenrath Noble
- Maggot Carrier
- Tavern Swindler
- Rakdos Guildgate
- Blood Reckoning
- 4x Swamp
- 4x Mountain
- No Mercy
- Blood Crypt
- Ultimate Price
- Vial Smasher the Fierce
- Mogis, God of Slaughter
- Lord of the Void
- Dragonskull Summit
- Bloodstained Mire
- Command Tower
- Opal Palace
- Graven Cairns
- Shadowblood Ridge
- Leechridden Swamp
- Sulfurous Springs
- Chandra, Torch of Defiance
With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!

Sorry, it seems Ashnod's Altar is not modern legal! I'm fairly new to mtg ;9
The amount of lands you have seem pretty low. Although keeping the number of lands low will help consistency, spending money on fetches, moxen, shocks, and etc. are a pain in the budget. Atleast painlands are less of a pain to pay for. You might like Battlefield Forge and Sulfurous Springs.
One Inventor's Fair should be enough because the second would be a dead draw.
I'd use Darksteel Citadel because it can be tapped, sac'ed, and recurred with Pia's Revolution. And if a land wasn't played that turn, play it and repeat. Also, it helps to use Spire's mana ability.
Renegade Map can be swapped with Springleaf Drum, as the drum can tap a foundry inspector or disciple and produce any mana. As a possiblity, it can be sac'ed, recurred, played again with the mana, and tap another creature.
Blood Artist is awesome for when any creature dies. Shrapnel Blast your opponent's creature, they lose 2 life and you gain 2. May be worth considering a swap with Impact Tremors.

Alright I love this new version way more than the old one, but we still got some problems with this.
So let's start with a question, how many creatures do we want in our opening hand? The answer to that is "just one." But we have eight? And you also have doubles of creatures that most of the time you only end up casting one. So what I suggest, is running one copy of each card, and using the cards based on utility.
Right now your only utility is Annihilator because Artisan's ability only works when he is casted(+1 to Uselessness). (And if we are honest here, Artisan of Kozilek and Ulamog's Crusher are trash to begin with.) So why not invest in some better reanimate targets? Here are my ideas:
Kokusho, the Evening Star: This dude becomes more effective in multiplayer games, and he can even gain you the life to play another reanimate spell(if he dies) if you are hurting from the first one, the City of Brasss, the Sulfurous Springs, the Blood Crypts, and the Gitaxian Probes. Best part is? You can Fling him.
Akroma, Angel of Wrath: We could also just run good creatures. Like this one. How about running one of this very versatile and hard to kill creature?
Angel of Despair: Let's say one of your friends plays a deck that has a permanent that screws you over, like an enchantment or an artifact. What are you gonna do about that? Are you gonna cast an Annihilator creature and swing? What if he has multiple permanents and blocks? What if your creature is pacified or the opponent is running Ensnaring Bridge? What if Pathrazer of Ulamog gets outta bed to have some Vitamin C and breakfast, and is slapped with an eviction notice, and a deportation letter, revoking his citizenship to none other than the graveyard? What are you gonna do? (The answer is Angel of Despair)
Improving our Resilience
So what are you gonna do if the opponent backhands our creature into the soft soil we just Reanimated from and then Surgical Extractirpates(Surgical Extraction & Extirpate) our Reanimate? What if we Gamble our Reanimates away via the one random discard? What if all four Reanimates get countered by some Spike that eats win-cons for dinner? Do you just scoop and walk away in shame? The answer to these questions? Run more Reanimate spells. 1-2 Animate Deads will work. Or even Exhume.
These simple fixes will help this deck go a long way. If you wanted even more resilience, throw in a single Feldon's Cane. Might as well have a shot at recycling everything you own in case all else fails.

I think you could upgrade Pacifism, Doom Blade, Ultimate Price and Lightning Bolt into Darksteel Mutation, Snuff Out, Murderous Cut and Swords to Plowshares.
As for acceleration, Generator Servant seems like great fit. I don't understand why you are running Darksteel Citadel though. I can't see any useful synergies in your list. A couple of your tapped lands could make room for Dragonskull Summit, Sulfurous Springs, Caves of Koilos, Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat or other untapped dual lands.
Hellkite Tyrant is another great dragon, i highly recommend it.

Since you are running a tribal deck, I would also suggest using Coat of Arms, because, well tribal. Also, looking through a couple of your cards, they seem a little mana specific, so in order to prevent yourself from being mana screwed, I would play shock/pain lands to relieve the burden.(Blood Crypt, Sulfurous Springs) Also, I would suggest using cards like Lightning Bolt for some removal although Dreadbore may be a tad better. (even though it's one extra mana.)
That's all for now. Good deck! +1

This is the full deck that's based off another deck idea. The original deck constructor had Gitaxian Probe but that is currently banned in modern so I switched it out for the the Tainted Strike and Sulfurous Springs. Its just a fun idea. I don't actually play it, but statistically, you will get the combo at least once...eventually.
