Description

This is a deck I built entirely out of singles I pulled at my local Legends Comics store. I based it on this deck

but couldn't find a majority of the Rakdos cards so I improvised. I've had pretty good luck with it so far but would always appreciate suggestions

Edit 1: Recently I've been knocking around the idea of adding in a planeswalker. My goal is to have a relatively low CMC planeswalker with a damaging ability or can transform. This is reflected in the maybe board. I'm leaning more towards Chandra, Pyromaster for price but I like the transform for Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker

Edit 2: I'm thinking of swapping around some creatures for 1-drop instant damage, stuff like Lightning Bolt or 2 more Shock.

Edit 3: After looking over the deck more carefully because of advise given i've chosen to removed/replace many of the one-offs I had to make it more consistent. I'm still considering a Planeswalker but now I feel more confident without having to add it

Edit 4: After much careful consideration I've decided to make this deck a Pure-Aggro, removing anything that was non conducive to going wide or burning fast. See the Update for cards removed/added.

Comments

I don't know if you're looking for cards that your local game store doesn't have, but if you just want general recommendations, I have a few.

Some highly recommended burn spells: Incinerate, Searing Blood, Magma Jet, Magma Spray, Pillar of Flame

Some good creatures: Ash Zealot, Stromkirk Noble, Firedrinker Satyr, Zurgo Bellstriker, Vampire Lacerator

Some other strong options:Duress, Doom Blade, Tragic Slip, Disfigure

This is if you want to make an extremely aggressive deck. All of these recommended cards are somewhere in a budget range, with nothing over 50 cents (on TCG player).

You also should cut 4 cards no matter what, because you currently have 64. You should probably get rid of Seismic Stomp, Madcap Skills, Mugging, and Act of Treason. The first 3 are sub-par, the last one is a more niche card.

If you're going to make that hyper-aggressive deck, I think 19-20 lands is preferable. And the 3 and 4 drops aren't going to cut it.

If you want to keep Exava and add planeswalkers, the deck is going to be a lot slower. If you do go that direction you should add some of the control elements like doom blade and duress. You should also probably take some of the 3-drops from the deck you linked to: Shambling Remains, Hellhole Flailer, Ashenmoor Gouger.

Just my 2 cents.
