Not the Counters You'd Expect

Modern BR (Rakdos) Counters



This deck focuses around the -1/-1 counters the opponents creatures get my creatures and such, as well as debuffs caused by said counters .Keep in mind; however, that this may not be budget but I still try not to use all to expensive cards, for example, Painter's Servant. Any suggestions would be appreciated, and a +1 upvote if you enjoy.


After a good long while, some testing, and suggestions I managed to get this deck to become viable to play with. I'm certain it can still improve, and would love to hear any suggestions anyone has.

Having a turn one play is very important in modern. I suggest Flamekin Harbinger. It contests the board on turn one and can tutor your stronger elementals.

I was debating that card for a while, but the fact I can look for am elemental I need when I drop it is a good point. Thanks for the suggestion!

You have a nice day to! I'll try it out, just gotta get it in. I just read proliferate, and my gosh, it'll be interesting if I can get it in.

You're very welcome :) I'd probably toss Vessel of Volatility. Most of your stuff is quite inexpensive :)

Ever thought about Ashenmoor Liege? Looks solid!

I do as a matter of fact have him in, only two however. He's a tad pricey to me.

Ashling, the Extinguisher is a solid card, might be worth a look.

Maybe, maybe. Ill for sure at least maybeboard that. Price kinda pushes my buttons.

You could use some form of a "destroy artifact/enchantment" cards in your sideboard. Those are always nice to have around, and your Deepfire Elemental is a little too big to only target artifacts

Fair point. Do you have suggestions by chance? I don't know anything really for red/black anti artifact cards.
