Rakdos Control for Theros

Score: Unrated


Description

Was working on an Izzet deck but realized all the good cards in black.

The best in Rakdos cards for killing of creatures and doing damage. Thoughts?

This doesn't make any sense. You would have to have all four of your Young Pyromancer out to make your devotion to red five, including Purphoros, God of the Forge . Devotion is the mana cost paid that is currently out on the battlefield. Tokens have a mana cost of 0 no matter what and you have zero enchantments, therefore, pyromancer is the only devotion you could have on the field.

rakdosrunner I do not count on him ever being a creature. He is just a good enchantment to play around with pyromancer.

I was just thinking if he isn't a creature you have only six in your deck. And playing any control or other burn, including aggro, you'll have a hard time getting them out or lasting long enough to have your damage take effect.
