Rakdos is devoted to Purpohoros

Modern*

fiduke Score: Unrated


Description

Deck is meant to be played extremely aggressively. Hope to get out enough devotion for a turn 4 Purphoros. By turn 5 opponent should be at 10 life if things are going well. Turn 6 is hopefully a win with either Demigod of Revenge or Nykthos for large banefire (or both!).

Whip and Hammer are there in case the game drags on longer and I can't get my devotion up. I could see myself removing both however.

On the Maybeboard, my favorites are Anathemancer, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, and Shambling Remains. With unearth, the Whip condition becomes unnecessary. Koth is also a strong consideration. With a little tweaking this can easily become a mono red deck that can turn a T5 Koth into a 9-12 point Banefire quite easily.

Not sure how much the hammer will help. If you're running Rakdos, what about Erebos, so people don't gain life vs. your aggro? And if they hold you off, you have a card drawing engine?

Also, how do you feel about Shambling Remains?

I like Shambling Remains a lot. It's on my maybeboard and is definitely up there on cards I would put in the deck.

I think at this point it just needs some playtesting to see if its at all feasible and if so what cards to add/remove.
