Description

Rakdos Control: It can be a thing!

The main goal of this deck is to stall until you can get your big hitters out (Desecration Demon and Stormbreath Dragon by using loads of removal and kill spells. Dreadbore and Hero's Downfall deal with planeswalkers VERY well, whereas Mizzium Mortars, Anger of the Gods and Doom Blade help deal with early game aggression in addition to Dreadbore and Hero's Downfall. Thoughtseize is to mess up their mana curve and pick out any pesky creatures or removal spells, as well as get rid of gods before they come into play. [[Underworld Connections is useful, for drawing the right creature or right control spell when it's needed.

The sideboard is pretty standard: Dark Betrayal against mono-black, Lifebane Zombie against Selesnya/Esper. Slaughter Games can straight up kill certain decks, and Ratchet Bomb helps deal with any creature en masse (Pack Rat, etc.). Devour Flesh is additional removal in case it's necessary, as well as a way to get rid of difficult indestructible creatures.Pithing Needle is the only sideboard card i'm unsure about: my deck has plenty of Planeswalker removal as is, so Pithing Needle isn't necessary for that.Still, there are many other situations where it is of value. Duress, Thoughtseize and Rakdos's Return help deal with anything in their hand to kill our big hitters.

Please give any Feedback: i'm relatively new to Magic, but from my experience this works really well.
