Rakdos Cackler Turn 1 Win - PDH

Pauper EDH

wraya2


Rakdos Cackler 1v1. Deck is meant to be played quick, aggro, and mean... the epitome of rakdos. Put out Cackler turn 1, Unleash him, and continue to buff him with enchantments and equipment. Kill spells/burn spells are meant to control the field in a 1v1 situation in order to do what needs to be done. Have fun.

In a PERFECT scenario, here's how this deck can win turn 1.

Starting hand (on the draw): Swamp, Dark Ritual , Lotus Petal , Simian Spirit Guide , Cartouche of Zeal , Assault Strobe , Demonic Appetite , Deviant Glee . Use swamp to pop the D.R., one D.R. mana plays Rakdos Cackler , the other two play Deviant Glee and Demonic Appetite. Simian Spirit Guide exiles to use the red mana to play assault strobe, and lotus petal gets cracked to play cartouche of zeal which deals 16 Commander Damage to win out (given they play no creatures turn one). This is clearly a huge perfect storm scenario BUT it's possible :)

Starting Hand On the Play: Swamp, Dark Ritual , Lotus Petal , Simian Spirit Guide , Tainted Strike , Reckless Charge , Assault Strobe . Swamp > Dark Ritual for 3 black mana. One for Rakdos Cackler , one for Tainted Strike . Simian gets exiled to pay for assault strobe, lotus petal pops reckless charge to get Cackler to 5P. Upon attacking, use one of the last floating black mana from Dark Ritual to play tainted strike, which would deliver 12 infect because of double strike.

In an excellent scenario, here are some ways this deck can win via the 16 Commander Damage on turn 2.

Turn 1: Swamp or Mountain -> Rakdos Cackler with Unleash. Then drop Bone Saw for free.

Turn 2: NEED two have at least a Swamp and Mountain. Use one Swamp to play Dark Ritual . Use one of the 3 Floating to play Unholy Strength , another to play demonic apetite, the last to attach Bone Saw or, if no saw, Riot Spikes // Deviant Glee . Use your one Mountain to play Assault Strobe = 16/17 CMDR DM. GG.
