Judith, the Scourge Diva is nice and Bedevil seems OK :) In this fast format my dude you'll never play 3 CCM cards such as Theater of Horrors that does nothing when it arrived on the battlefield except if the draw back is really really really huge (cf Deeproot Waters in my Kumena deck). Won't even talk about Captive Audience ... Unplayable in duel commander.

What about cards from Ravnica Allegiance: Bedevil , Judith, the Scourge Diva , Theater of Horrors and (oh, my favorite!) Captive Audience ?

Yeah, I approve. Risk factor is only good because people really don't like to take damage, but if you're win condition is Revel in Riches , it really doesn't matter.

Theater of Horrors basically because a Phyrexian Arena with all of the lightning strike and shock

Captain Lannery Storm won me a game, so I liked him a lot. The removal and ability for him to hit multiple times was really nice. I won a game with just him, removing threats with spells and then hitting with 14 treasures off a Brass's Bounty to end it. I haven't played many games with the deck yet, but I would be hesitant to remove him so far. I'm glad you removed Risk factor. I figured maybe I didn't know the deck well enough, but without Lannery slamming in, the deck isn't doing much damage so the opponent will almost always take the hit which doesn't help you much. Try a few playtests with Theater of Horrors and see if you like where it is in the deck. Maybe Lannery in the Sideboard, because decks with a lot of removal just clean him off? I'm not sure. More playtesting.

Thanks Boroswins! Yeah I'm definitely thinking about the Ritual of Soot , I forgot about that card. I'll have to think about the Theater of Horrors . At first glance it seems like it might be too expensive, but I could be wrong about that.

Theater of Horrors would add an alternative target to your Revel, so they use their enchantment removal early. If they don't blast it, you get a lot of additional card draw. Ritual of Soot would make a great early sweeper against aggressive decks, maybe either sideboard or something that you put in two of and board in or out the other two after G1. Overall I like the deck and how it plays. I'm looking for a good Rakdos midrange and this felt pretty smooth in the game I played with it. I'm going to playtest more. Good job.

Domri Rade : +1 is not very good? Draws you around 1/3 of a card every turn. I'm assuming you're playing him for his ult, which is kind of a bad idea. No player in their right mind is gonna let that boi get his ultimate out, and with four people at the table? Not likely.

Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro : the most expensive card in your deck is Woodfall Primus at 8 mana (yes, I know Blasphemous Act is 9 technically but realistically it's 1). What do you need with all this mana after turn 4? Casting your whole hand every turn? You don't have the draw to sustain that.

Love Prophetic Flamespeaker in a voltron deck but here it's kinda shaky. Theater of Horrors seems much better.
