pie chart Rakdos Standard




This is my current red/black Rakdos Deck for standard. Basically, it is quick aggro with cards having 1-4 mana costs and some control. I kinda want to change it to where I can use Rakdos, Lord of Riots' effect to bring out bigger monsters, but that might be difficult. If anyone has any ideas for improvements, please list them out.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots here is kinda useless since most of your mana costs are B/R not colorless, it's still a good fat creature.

First of all you are playing 28 creatures which is enough, so swap those key runes for +2 Blood Crypt and -1/-2 Rakdos Guildgate since they enter tapped and they slow your aggro.That leaves you with 2 slots free, put +2 Ash Zealot . Why? Regardless if you are using it's passive it's still a 2/2 first strike with haste for 2 mana.

I would take out Hellhole Flailer and Hellrider since you are plying only 1 and put +3 Searing Spear , it's an awesome instant and a must in red colored decks.

Also -2 Bump in the Night , -1 Mizzium Mortars +3 Annihilating Fire . Why? because it's an instant, it let's you choose player or creature and removes creatures.

Also -2 Archwing Dragon and -1 Rakdos, Lord of Riots (or if you really want to play it take out a Vampire Nighthawk ) and put +3 Stromkirk Noble . It's a 1 mana drop 1/1 who can get bigger if the oponent started with soldiers to chump block and stuff. Archwing dragon is not bad but remember that in an aggro deck your main drops should be 1,2 and 3 mana creatures and spells.
