Updated description / deck: February 26th 2017

Hueless Havok! This was my very first Commander-Deck a long while ago and I still like it very much; I keep it up to date. Rakdos, Lord of Riots is the center of this Deck. Enabling him and getting the deck to work is not too difficult, and the effects nearly explode if you do this right. This is kind of my shot for this deck-type and this is probably one of the strongest Rakdos-Decks online. Since relying on your commander to win is naive, it can also work without him pretty well.

A lot of updates were done, currently going more towards colorless stuff. There is also a lot more draw than there was before. Once you got some damage in, you can nearly drop everything you hold and draw. Exciting times!

There is only one combo in there on purpose - no one likes to win with combo around here, but sometimes it is necessary to end a round that drags on for too long. I included Cloudstone Curio since it works with a lot of colorless creatures as a loop when they aren't artifacts and I can cast them for free again and again if opponents suffered enough damage. And even then, needing the Artifact, 2 non-artifact colorless creatures, your commander and enough damage in the current round seem like enough loops to jump through for everyone not to feel cheated.

Edit: Chandra, Torch of Defiance is amazing in play! Every ability of hers is incredible in this deck (+1: Draw/Damage (Cheapen with Rakdos), +1: Colored Mana, -2: Removal, -7: Combo with the Cast-Loop I mentioned above... just bonkers...)

Edit: Recently I changed Vial Smasher the Fierce for Walking Ballista. It pings for free (instead of having to play a spell with Vial Smasher the Fierce), I can use it for 2 mana to get a ping in and late game it scales beautifully and I can reduce the costs fully instead of it being multicolored.

No, I don't have a Badlands, but if I had one it would be in there obviously. And I'm currently not very happy with Earthquake as it is - looking to replace it.
