Bryan "The Dude" Brakdosi awoke one morning to several cultists worshiping him. They claim Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch
has been out tapping mana with some of those "Simic" nerds. After peeing on his Boros Guildgate
they realize, they are actually seeking Rakdos, Lord of Riots
a demon that can practically piss fire, and not some washed up hippie, and leave.
The Dude tells his tale to his Slaughter Games buddies. Together they decide Rakdos, Lord of Riots , owes Bryan a new guildgate. Thus begins the tale of ... THE BIG BRAKDOSI!
DECK DESIGN: "The Dude abides" This Standard Deck is designed around the Constellation ability and using various auras and enchant/creatures to reliably get Rakdos, Lord of Riots
into play. Overall it's a casual FNM or Table top deck, not intended to be ultra competitive. The decks name is a play on the classic movie "The Big Lebowski".
SYNERGY: "I don't need your sympathy, I need my Johnson." Agent of Fates being enchanted will help clear the battlefield of the opponents creatures, as well as being difficult to block if enchanted with cards such as Alpha Authority
or Deviant Glee
Brain Maggot can help handle an opponent gaining extra cards through Master of the Feast while Gift of Orzhova can help offset the life loss of an early Herald of Torment .Grim Guardian , Mogis, God of Slaughter , and Spiteful Returned help to ensure Rakdos, Lord of Riots can be cast as soon as possible.
SIDEBOARD: "This aggression will not stand man." The sideboard is a work in progress, I originally intended to splash more green to push card draw and hexproof, but was at a loss of what to cut. I expect to revise this area after playtesting.
BUDGET: "It really tied the room together." I build every deck under a $100 budget, to be affordable for most casual players. While this removes many of the higher priced and sought after cards from my potential pool, it also forces me to be creative and look into a wider scope of cards. Occasionally I have a deck that exceeds this amount, either due to price inflation over time, or getting a few lucky pulls in packs that I opted to keep, and in those rare cases, I will attempt to annotate replacement options that would bring the deck back in line with this budget.
FEEDBACK: "Yeah,well, that's just, like, your opinion, man." I'm looking for suggestions for the sideboard, as well as opinions on the green splash. 4 Alpha Authority
s seem like a weak reason to mess with the mana base so much, but I question the ability to run Eidolon of Blossoms
with its dual green casting cost. Ive considered Madcap Skills
as a potential addition. Please feel free to share thoughts and opinions!
