Cranial Plating Discussion

Transmute really has one of the strongest synergies with Ramirez; however, I didn't end up adding it for each CMC, because the deck is still in construction and I don't have key cards to tutor for yet. Also, I want to make sure that the card with transmute has a relevant ability. Otherwise, it'll only be a tutor and a waste of a card slot, imo.
- There are some obvious cards I will have to buy/trade for such as: Cranial Plating, Buried Ruin, Unearth, Reconnaissance Mission
- Maybe: Shadow of the Grave, Drake Haven (CMC3 slot is competitive & the 1 mana tax might be hindering my game plan; would like to hear your opinion on that card)
I haven't thought of Dredge cards. Thanks for that suggestion! I think cards with that ability might work best when I have both commanders in play. (probably cutting some cycling cards for Dredge) These are the ones I'm currently considering: Golgari Thug, Necroplasm and Dakmor Salvage. I think I need more cards that recur stuff from my graveyard besides Ramirez. (just in case he gets removed before combat dmg etc.)
What's your opinion on redundant cards? I already have 2 creatures that reduce costs of artifacts and 2 creatures that return artifacts to my hand when they die. How many is enough do you think?
Also looking for cards that synergize well with my commanders and help me recur non-artifact, non-creature cards.

Hey, good start, but without an infinite combo you should forget about trying to get to power level 8 because 8+ level decks win with infinite combos. Without an infinite combo then power level 6-7 is the highest level you should go for. Not having black's powerful tutors or Fetch lands are other reasons the power level isn't higher. With DFC you only count the front side of the card in the decklist, the backside is not added. For example Shatterskull Smashing Flip goes in the decklist, but Shatterskull, the Hammer Pass doesn't.
My advice is if you want to make a good Rakdos Toggo deck than build around Rocks. Take more advantage of Rocks to get more value out of them. Cranial Plating fueled by Rocks combos with Chandra's Ignition and Fling effects to kill your opponents with burn. Inspiring Statuary and Rocks can make a lot of ramp for Comet Storm or Exsanguinate.
- Reckless Fireweaver
- Ghirapur AEther Grid
- Quicksmith Genius
- Valduk, Keeper of the Flame
- Hammer of Nazahn
- Fabled Passage
- Jund Panorama
- Grixis Panorama
- Guildless Commons
- Great Furnace
- Vault of Whispers
Some other cards to consider adding:
- Red Elemental Blast
- Chandra, Torch of Defiance
- Valakut Exploration
- Heartless Hidetsugu
- Torbran, Thane of Red Fell
- Price of Progress
Good luck with you deck.

This is a thing of beauty, great job. How about Cranial Plating?

Feed the Swarm is pretty cheap and versatile removal to consider. Fact or Fiction or Read the Bones or even Altar's Reap might also be nice as it seems card draw might be a bit weak Thoughtcast is even better I bet with the Treasure synergies. Murder or Doom Blade or Tragic Slip or Price of Fame or Defile or Cast Down or Drag to the Underworld might also be nice to deal with enemy threats or blockers. Force of Despair is another good cheap effect that can help push through for attacks. Costly Plunder turns a treasure into cards which is nice and on theme. Profane Command is also surprisingly cheap for the versatility. Damnable Pact is neat as you can target an opponent to deal lethal or yourself to draw. Cranial Plating is a pretty awesome equipment with treasure too. Armix, Filigree Thrasher although not a pirate, has a cool synergy with treasures. AEtherize is a neat wrath effect that is cheap. Memory Lapse and Unsubstantiate is a counterspell that feels less controlling since they keep the card. Tolarian Winds is a one sided Windfall which is interesting. Thassa's Intervention is another potential counterspell that doesn't feel so controlling. Distant Melody is also probably a great card given all the Pirates. Merchant's Dockhand interacts nicely with Treasures.

Cheers for the feedback MrKillStar, it's good to see some other people coming up with novel brews for the new Legends!
Armix and Silas Renn looks like a great aggressive combo (Attack with both, trash an artifact to Armix to kill off a blocker, then use Silas to play an artifact you've trashed), but I like the restriction of mono colored decks, in deck building and power level. Also, most of the more expensive cards (including the Sword) in this list I already have a spare copy of, so putting it together would only cost me about $30!
Skyclave Relic and Strionic Resonator look very nice in the deck, I'll see if I can fit them into my budget! I don't think I'll be using Keskit toooo much, so Magewright's Stone might not make the cut.
I think this deck just needs a really reliable finisher. The current options are either incremental advantage from things like Underhanded Designs and Marionette Master, or combat-focused with Cranial Plating and Lashwrithe.
I was thinking Revel in Riches might be good, as this deck can (theoretically) kill creatures pretty consistently, and the Treasure tokens are Artifacts! The only thing is it's a bit out of my budget for now, I really want this to be a super cheap deck to build, so if I don't end up liking it, I can just pull it apart or give it to someone without any bad feels!
