I have removed 2 master of cruelties and added anger of the gods, as per all your recommendations

Rakdos doesnt seem like hes doing much work in this deck other than his body but there are better plays. Also you should side in some Skullcrack for all the powerful lifegain out there. Blood Baron of Vizkopa isnt really afraid of your removal.

Well, as far as vizkopa thats why devour flesh is there lol, as well as magma jet and lightning strike. But I agree that Rakdos isn't perfect for the deck: maybe swap in Desecration Demon? Also Skullcrack could work in a sideboard: it could also combine with Whip of Erebos to counter more effectively.

if you do try it, i'd mainboard 1 more of the madcaps and 2 of Mugging 's
nice deck good luck.

Mugging would be nice, but that would mean removing even more cards, and the sideboard is already filling up. I'm updating the deck now, adding 2 more land, so # of cards is a factor.

I had dark betrayal and thrill-kill before actually, but they didn't really fit it. Whip of erebos allowed me to continue to sack life for card using underworld connections, whereas dark betrayal is very situational, though you can do some awesome stuff with it. Thrill-Kill is great, but I needed to get some actual damage within the deck, whereas thrill-kill is best used as a defender and doesn't really do damage well.

Guttersnipe is a useful card in it's own right, but is extremely vulnerable in the current meta game due to his 2 toughness. Also Rakdos, Lord of Riots seems marginal, as his ability really only helps in casting Master of Cruelties who shouldn't be much trouble if you can cast a Lord of Riots.
I'd recommend playing more heavily into the Master of Cruelties direction with the following changes:

Have you considered Mizzium Mortars and Young Pyromancer ? You do have a lot of instants and sorceries so they help out a lot. I like guttersnipe but I feel like Young Pyromancer would work a lot more effectively. You could swing at your opponent as you are removing their creatures.

The only problem I would have with young pyromancer is thaat it's limited to RED instants or sorceries

Wait, what card is limited to red instants and sorceries? Sorry, you're right, and that means that actually young pyromancer would be pretty awesome
November 27, 2013 1:39 a.m.
OH, I was mixing it up with pyromancer's gauntlet

As great as Lightning Talons is, Madcap Skills just synergizes well with Liliana's Reaver and Master of Cruelties
