A Rakdos deck designed to play something like MBC.
Tapped out control taking the game as late as possible.
Considering putting in 3 Dead Weight in place of the 2 Sever the Bloodline moving those to side and one Underworld Connections for some cheap early-game black removal. I'm hesitant to pull anymore black out of the deck in favor of red or my swamp count will start getting so low that Mutilate won't be nearly as efficient. At the very least, if Curse of the Pierced Heart doesn't do what I want it to, I'll be boarding some Dead Weight for the hyper-aggro matchup, but between Pillar of Flame , Dreadbore , Vampire Nighthawk /Tribute to Hunger , getting to T4 isn't as hard as even I'd expected.
i really think against agro you need Bonfire of the Damned i know you dont want to put to much more red in your deck but against agro you really do need it Mutilate simply wont be enough , your mana should be fine. if not take out one of your Stensia Bloodhall s for another mountain or even a Rakdos Guildgate .
I playtested Bonfire of the Damned back in the first incarnation of this deck, and hated it. I'd rather run Mizzium Mortars for another wipe if I need it, non-miracle Bonfire felt like such a dead card, and the miracle seemed to come up only when I didn't need it. I think I was excited to see it maybe 2-3 games out of the 15 or so I tested with it that it came up. It was literally the first card I cut.
