1. This is a Rakdos deck that utilizes your graveyard, but also has a strong board. Sweet spot play is Footsteps of the Goryo to raise Flayer of the Hatebound.


  1. Flayer of the Hatebound - bring him back from graveyard with Footsteps of the Goryo and you get to ping 4 right away and 5 damage at the end of turn. Plus you get to keep him as a 5/3 creature. Maga!

  2. Perilous Myr - When you attack with it you will deal damage no matter what. So it's your best friend in getting out ...

  3. Rakdos, Lord of Riots - I just want to smash people who have a not-modern-playable-cardlist with it! This demon also dodges some removals such as: Inquisition of Kozilek, Roast, Abrupt Decay and Dismember.

  4. Shriekmaw - Cheap removal, or expensive removal and exotic pet. It's all sweet either way. Extra sweet with Sin Prodder.

  5. Sin Prodder - My new favourite card! You get card advantage or your opponent gets damage. Enables you to pop out Rakdos Lord if he or she chooses damage. On top of that he is sweet on attack with menace. Looks good with Lightning Greaves. Other creatures are intentionately high cmc so that opponent will have a hard time choosing damage or discard.

Other Spells

  1. Faithless Looting - Keep what you need, and discard creatures for future Footsteps of the Goryo's.

  2. Footsteps of the Goryo - Nom nom nom.

  3. Seal of Fire - Works to set up turn 4 Rakdos, Lord of Riots.

  4. Lightning Greaves - Sweet boots! You can protect something (Sin Prodder) or give haste to something that you just brought back with Footsteps of the Goryo. ***sweet scenario: you have 4 mana, Greaves on the battlefield, Rakdos Lord in your graveyard and Flayer in your hand. Footstep Rakdos Lord, equip boots, swing for six, cast Flayer for one red.

  5. Smallpox - My new favourite non-creature card! Some decks are straight away undone by this card. Overall should hurt your opponent more than you. Cast it when he or she has a creature on play and you don't. Extra sweet against Infect and Aura Hexproof.

  6. Pyroclasm - Ah' I love the smell of pyroclasm in the morning. Sometimes it's sweet to have a Perilous Myr on the battlefield and get to ping two extra damage.


  1. Drownyard Temple - Good to discard.

  2. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - No harm in having x2 of these.
