Rakdos, Lord of Riots Deck Help

Commander Deck Help forum

I'm trying to brew up a relatively cheap Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck. I think I've got it at a decent spot at the moment, but I know it could get better. If you have any advice for the deck (Rakdos, Lord of Riots EDH), please let me know! Do you have a Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck? If so, what works? What doesn't work? Thanks!

Use quality pingers over sorceries like cryptolith fragment nettle drone chandra torch of defiance. Lands like sunscorched desert parang marsh.also cloudtone curio with any of the cast trigger eldrazi is infinate.

Agree with @Bighimmy. Also, I don’t think you have nearly enough creatures for a Rakdos deck. Once you get him out you don’t need a ton of land either. I would put something in to protect him. Maybe Darksteel Plate? I would go down to 38 lands and remove most of your mana rocks. Add pingers!! And more artifact creatures! You want free stuff. Steel Hellkite for example is super inexpensive and great with Rakdos.

I have a rakdos deck and it consistently gets him out turn 4 and is capable of playing entire deck on same turn or turn 5.

Mine is as much of a spike build as can be.

Thanks for the comments! I have definitely come to realize that I don't need as many lands as I currently have, so I'll be dropping some soon. I'm also currently in the process of getting more/better pingers, so if you have any suggestions there I'd welcome them greatly. Also, thanks for posting your deck, I'll definitely check it out!

Chandra, torch of defiance. Cryptolith fragment. Shepherd of rot. Nettle drone. Paranah marsh. Sunscroched desert. Thermo alcovist. Rakdos charm which can also kill a token deck. Heartless hidesugu is a powerhouse.retreat to hagra.all but one of these are permanents and can be reused. I prefer quality over quantity.
