Got back in back in to magic around 14 after playing till about 2000 and quickly abandoned the all other formats to play EDH.

Said on Rakdos Beatdown...

I find that having playable hands comes down to flexible color mana and cheap to cast free to repeat damage. These 2 factors lead to Rakdos, Lord of Riots dropping at least turn 4.

You defiantly need more dual colord lands. As of this statment you have 3 lands and 4 mana rocks that can tap for either. that means you only have 7 chances to get a card that can pay for either the , or in Rakdos, Lord of Riots cost.

Lobber Crew, Nettle Drone, Thermo-Alchemist, Shepherd of Rot, and Endbringer are a good start for casting enablers. I will absolutly steal Plague Spitter, and Cryptolith Fragment  Flip for my desk. I would also recommend Cinder Pyromancer, and Tunneling Geopede Basically I try to run 10 or more cards that don't take mana away from casting Rakdos, Lord of Riots, while still dealing at least 1 damage to an opponent.

The decklist is out of date from my current build but I am sure you can find some fun tools in Comrad Rakdos

I hope these tips help.

Also rule that handles redirection specifically omits combat damage.

306.7. If noncombat damage would be dealt to a player by a source controlled by an opponent, that opponent may have that source deal that damage to a planeswalker the first player controls instead. This is a redirection effect (see rule 614.9) and is subject to the normal rules for ordering replacement effects (see rule 616). The opponent chooses whether to redirect the damage as the redirection effect is applied. #

Great article but i would like to clarify that plainwalkers work a bit diffrent in combat than described. When you choose attackers you either choose a plainswalker or a player to attack and if unblocked or trampling any combat damage sticks with the original target and can not be redirected.
