Tree of Perdition Discussion
2 weeks ago
Heartless Summoning might actually be pretty good, I might try it out. I ran Behind the Scenes originally and it didn't do that much for me unfortunately. I'm trying to avoid defenders, so probably no Tree of Perdition or Tree of Redemption, but I've been considering them. Originally I was trying to run as few creatures with power greater than two, which is why there is no Ulvenwald Observer. I have been going away from that a bit, so maybe.
Thanks for the recommendations

I think it my be worth trying out a Heartless Summoning since almost all of your creatures have big booties. This will interfere with 4-5 of the 1/1 creatures you have in there but those could always be replaced for more creatures that follow your theme, and any ramp you lose from those 1/1s can become sorcery spells instead like Rampant Growth, or even Yavimaya Elder cause it has benefits going to the graveyard. Behind the Scenes can give all your creatures Skulk. And if you put in Heartless Summoning you can then justify putting in Mirari's Wake for the mana boost and that additional +1+1 pump. Other suggestions: Tree of Perdition, Tree of Redemption, Ulvenwald Observer.
Feel free to check out my Doran deck for some other possibilities. I will say that my deck isn't totally true to his ability because I've had to build it to my meta (my deck has lots and lots of target removal and wipes) because my meta constantly targets Doran when I play him.
Hope this helps!

Tree of Perdition is a great way to force life gain if you can keep it alive long enough. When you exchange life totals it is considered a loss/gain of life, so make their life total 13 then make it 40 gain and they lose 27 life.

Gleeock - Yeah, thankfully it's Friday and I'll have some more time to be able to give this deck a critical look this weekend! Currently looking at Pestilence, Pyrohemia, Neheb, the Eternal, Crawlspace, Diabolic Intent and Chain Reaction for cuts and looking at Blasphemous Act, Fraying Omnipotence, Dismember, Bloodchief Ascension, Master of Cruelties, Virtus the Veiled and Tree of Perdition for adds. Not 100% sold on any of these yet; but they're all strong considerations!
I see now! I LOVE that idea. I actually glossed over those two cards when I saw your deck the first time around, now I wish Xantcha was Jund. The way that you're running your deck is initially how I was planning on building mine. I just can't guarantee that they'll have enough creatures to attack with and there don't seem to be a lot of cards in Rakdos that give your opponents creatures (for a good deal); I've counted maybe 5 or so. I think redirect spells are a great addition to your deck, whereas I think my deck isn't built to utilize them to their potential.
Jimmy_Chinchila For some reason I didn't even give these cards a second thought! I was too hyperfocused on the group slug aspect of the deck to really even consider a lot of the solid Rakdos damage dealers on their own. I think I'll shy away from Malignus because I don't have any way of protecting it, giving it haste, or giving it any sort of evasion. At 5 mana, it's a pricy investment considering all that could go wrong. The other three, on the other hand, I really like and am strongly considering adding to the deck. Virtus the Veiled has the same issues as Malignus, but at 3 mana it feels much more reasonable to include. Tree of Perdition doesn't care about blockers, which is a wonderful upside. And Sorin Markov might as well be a sorcery since you can activate it as soon as it comes down. I think I'll try and order Tree & Virtus and hold off on Sorin at the moment because of the price, but he is a strong consideration for the deck. Thank you!
