Latest Decks as Commander
2 days ago
Hey! Cool deck! I wanted to now your thoughts on some other Random commanders, you say Kroxa is the only Rakdos commander that serves as an outlet, so what are your issues with these commanders?
Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, can serve as removal/card draw in a pinch.
Xantcha, Sleeper Agent, also double as card draw.
Of course, Kroxa has his own pros and cons as well, but I'd like to hear why you prefer him to these other options.

Maybe Doomsday would work in the build? It does help you set up a game winning combo. (I know it's kind of expensive...) Otherwise, I really like the deck. All K'rrik decks are really interesting to me, and I hope that your friend enjoys your build!

@Snap157 great feedback. I have every card mentioned so I will be making a few of these suggested changes. Let me explain a few of these choices as well.
I'll be keeping:
- Mirrorpool for now, I may take it out but a land that can clone Gyruda sounds fun.
- Sire of Stagnation because I feel like landfall strategies are going to become more common after Zen Rising and I have a foil one and I love the art.
- Crush of Tentacles is in the deck for flavor reasons, I put it in instead of Cyclonic Rift.
- Rise of the Dark Realms just because I love big flashy plays that do dumb stuff.
Cards I'll be swapping out
- Ravenous Chupacabra, it's a single target so maybe I'll swap him for Slum Reaper, I don't know for sure yet.
- Thassa's Oracle, I had Doomsday in here but I took it out because I don't like ending games early. I play for fun and love long, grindy games. Maybe I'll add in a fail-safe like Dread so I don't kill myself with my own commander.
I'm still figuring out what to swap out for some other suggestions but I plan on adding Rhystic Study and probably Thought Vessel. I am currently running Thorn of the Black Rose instead of Phyrexian Arena because I could get her off a Gyruda trigger.
I really appreciate the feedback!

Sounds like a fairly standard Consultation line, or maybe a Doomsday set up.
There are a number of ways to punish this line of play that are very effective.
Angel's Grace will prevent him from winning and he won't be able to interact with Angel's Grace when it's cast. This will, at a minimum, give your group a turn cycle to come up with an answer to his board state, or result in him killing himself outright if he used Thassa's Oracle.
Trickbind works similarly, it's got split second so it can't be interacted with on the stack, and it counters the triggered ability of Oracle or the activated ability of Jace, but doesn't really affect Lab Man. Again, with Oracle he just dies on his next turn, but with Jace this option buys the table a turn cycle to find a way to kill the Jace.
Dispel is a good way to interact with both of the Forbidden Tutors (Demonic Consultation and Tainted Pact). Many other counterspells are also excellent in this role. The key is being prepared for him to attempt his line of play and then busting out the countermagic you were saving for that situation.
Spell Snare hits both Oracle and Tainted Pact.
Geier Reach Sanitarium can be used to force him to draw with an Oracle etb trigger on the stack, but is less useful against Lab Man and Jace. Any spell that can force him to draw at instant speed while an Oracle trigger is on the stack will cause him to lose as well.
Any form of instant speed creature removal is an excellent way to answer Lab Man while he has a draw trigger on the stack that would draw on his empty library and win the game. Lab Man will die, he will draw, then he will die.
Meddling Mage and other cards that prevent him from playing important pieces of his line of play are also good solutions but can be vulnerable to removal.

The combo this deck is aiming for has changed. Thassa's Oracle is used in place of Lab Man because even if it's removed, you still win the game from its ability going on the stack. Doomsday is also not used much anymore because Demonic Consultation and Tainted Pact win you the game faster and with fewer cards and less mana. I like this deck a lot but (no disrespect to you I'm just trying to help) I feel it good be better. If you're looking for an example of what I'm talking about, please check out my Dralnu deck.

I think with a couple of changes it could become a Spellchaser. However, with no Mirror, Doomsday could be an alternative.
