Worldgorger Dragon + Animate Dead / Dance of the Dead forms an infinite loop that you can cancel at any time. The loop blinks all of your lands into exile temporarily, allowing you to tap them before they blink out. This can be used to create infinite mana. Worldgorger Dragon isn't a good card on it's own, but it combos well with Buried Alive and your Gravebreaker Lamia. Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead are great any time because they can target creatures in anyone's GY.

I'd cut Torgaar, Famine Incarnate . He sort of works against Zulaport Cutthroat , as he cleanly sets the opponent's life to 10, denying all the sac triggers. Also leaves Nantuko Husk with less fodder. He's a big beater, but he's very easily blocked and doesn't get hit by Collected Company .

In this deck i want to make many tokens a and i have big chance for dat. For example Thallids and spores counter, Mycoloth Tendershoot Dryad Verdant Force Saproling Migration etc. But if i look on my card i can produce saproling fast and make them big. Its not enough in my opinion becous i have fuel but where is engin to burn all of them? Only a few card give me that option again thallids, Torgaar, Famine Incarnate Whisper, Blood Liturgist Priest of Forgotten Gods . Altar of Dementia give me free sacrifice to drain enemy and way to respons. Opponent want kill my fungus ore something? pyk sacrifice in response. So answering for you're qestion it's for fun but it's give me new opportunities. Now i think i have to give nice description for this nice deck.

I love random, obscure tribals. My input would be that both Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are better than Butcher of Malakir . If you want more death triggers you can consider Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , Falkenrath Noble , Vindictive Vampire , ect, ect.

Silence is one of the best combo protection spells you can run.
The Exquisite Blood / Cliffhaven Vampire combo seems out of place here. you're better off focusing on overlapping combos rather than having a combo which doesn't really interact with any other pieces. Torgaar, Famine Incarnate is expensive and slow, plus isn't actually a win condition. Avalanche Riders , Stuffy Doll and Silent Arbiter could be replaced for more combo density. Unless you're in a beats heavy meta, Maze of Ith also seems out of place.
Goblin Bombardment is another solid outlet, I'm also surprised there's no Viscera Seer . Painful Truths is generally better than Phyrexian Arena . Wheel of Fortune is another good draw card you're not running.

Brand new user here, brand new player (been toying with MTG Arena to figure out builds I want to invest in).
I've been playing around with Omniscience . I've seen the build that combos it with Overflowing Insight to make the opponent deck out, but that just doesn't seem fun to play with or against. Instead, I've been trying to play as many big creatures as possible and win the same turn in comes out.
Here's where I'm struggling: Omniscience is a big card, so I know the deck needs to ramp quickly. I also know I need to have a constant inflow of cards into my hand. Also fine. The problem is that, when I put together the ramp cards and the drawing engines, there isn't really any room in the deck for anything else. I can fit a few big hitters, and not much to protect me until turn 5+ when I can get all of this out. Here's what I'm running right now on Arena:
2x New Horizons
2x Mana Geode
The idea is to ramp, draw cards, get Samut, Tyrant Smasher out so all my big hitters have Haste and take the game the turn they come on. I know I'm doing something inefficiently, I just don't know what. Any help would be really appreciated here.

Hiya!! Looking good so far! one of the trickiest thing with a deck like this is balancing the chaos/ group slug nature of red/black with the politics that Xantcha wants to direct.
I think Akroan Horse is perfect for you. and also Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , these two cards are great for getting other people at the table to join your side, or at least reconsider attacking you. Havoc Festival is also a must. Even Torgaar, Famine Incarnate would fit too. Vial Smasher the Fierce helps sow those seeds of Chaos as well.
I think political Rakdos is one of the coolest archetypes, and this deck seems like it's got the potential! Keep at it! How has it been to play so far?
