Red creature spells you cast cost less to cast.
Whenever you cast a creature spell, you may discard a card. If you do, draw a card.
Hazoret's Monument Discussion
1 month ago
Hey Matt, 'saw your reddit post and wanted to help!
I'd drop some of the vanilla madness for a few more lands and ramp (34-36 lands/ 6-8 ramp).
Here are a few more:
Hazoret's Monument ... win-more.

yeah linvala is pretty decent at stopping up some strategies. The skirmisher might be a better early cut than one of the akroma though.
Now Oketra's Monument is kind of good for mana ramp (these monuments proc their ability off any creature cast, not just the ones it discounts) and you can run cards like Kor Skyfisher or Whitemane Lion to abuse it and go wide on tokens, it gets extra weird when someone I suggest this to also has Divine Visitation (1 mana make an angel when the synergy is built). There is also Hazoret's Monument , while the discount pretty much only hits your commander having a loot engine can help out your minor reanimator strategy and smooth out your draws somewhat closer to that of blue. (it also works to turn land tax's land draws into non lands)
Oh yeah Thalia's Lancers is also a pretty decent tutor.

Just in case you weren't aware, you're not allowed to run Behind the Scenes according to official EDH rules since it has white in its colour identity.
Among recent-ish cards that your local store is reasonably likely to have, I would recommend Neheb, the Eternal for both theme and great ramp. Having playtested against the deck it also feels like it could use more card draw, and I would recommend Erebos, God of the Dead or Arguel's Blood Fast Flip or any other Greed -variant they might have in.
Angrath's Marauders are a one-sided damage doubler with a flavour connection to Angrath.
Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic and Obelisk of Urd are tribal staples and can help your minotaurs get big enough to attack through small or medium creatures. Stoneforge Masterwork is also solid. Door of Destinies and Shared Animosity are the big boys of tribal buffs, but since they're a bit older they can be harder to find, and the latter is quite expensive as well.
While a bit more pricey, Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power (and the very expensive Gauntlet of Might ) are powerful in both boosting your mana and your creatures. Crypt Ghast only does one of the two, but costs a bit less and is slightly easier to find. (Note that the symbol is in reminder text and does not give the card a white colour identity).
I hope I've given you some ideas!

Hi aarnok! I'm not familiar with how to reply to you on my deck thread, or if you'd be notified, so I figured I'd try sending you a comment this way to see if it works.
Thanks for the feedback and suggestions! Here's some insight as to my process:
Sword of the Animist is definitely a bit of a corner case inclusion, but I've gotten plenty of value from it. If my Feldon is on the field and has no targets in graveyard, at least he can get me some lands by swinging away. Plus I've got plenty of low CMC creatures that can be equipped and ramp me some land. It's performed well in all the games I've seen it!
Liquimetal Coating is bonkers with things like Ingot Chewer and Manic Vandal . It turns Feldon activations into "destroy any permanent". I've used it to take out Gaea's Cradle , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and even planeswalkers. It's fantastic.
Chandra, Flamecaller is used exclusively for the 0 effect. Dumping my hand and drawing a new one plus one is fantastic and desirable since I'm often dumping a ton of threats for Feldon to activate or a bunch of cards I don't need. Yeah, she costs 6 but it's not a huge problem most games.
Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded is absolutely a bad card. I run it for the fun of it. I'd definitely say Sarkhan is better in all cases and may consider adding him in addition, but Tibalt is just a fun pet card that I enjoy. :)
Nahiri's Wrath is a newer inclusion but I have it in the deck as an alternate way to pitch big dragons and other buff creatures to the graveyard. It's removal and a discard outlet in one. It's tested adequately thus far, but it's definitely closer to the "gonna get replaced soon" side of things at the moment.
Rowdy Crew is a sleeper hit. Discard effects on creatures is great as Feldon can recur them to keep fueling the graveyard more and more!
I used to run Gauntlet of Power and Caged Sun but removed them to tone the deck back a bit as it was getting a little too powerful. I tone a lot of my decks to match my meta which is pretty casual, so sometimes I sacrifice some super-powerful cards for the betterment of the group. GoP was why I had so many basics, but you're right - I could do to add a few more nonbasics.
Goblin Engineer and Drakuseth, Maw of Flames are both on my "to buy" list. Hazoret's Monument is a great idea and I'm not sure why I'm not running it already, thanks! Endless Atlas seems cool too! Warstorm Surge is definitely powerful but it's another card that was sacrificed for playgroup purposes. The deck is already quite strong, and Surge is a bit "win-more" in my opinion. Godo, Bandit Warlord isn't a bad idea either but I only have four legal targets in the deck. Sure, grabbing Illusionist's Bracers would be slick but getting Boots or Greaves would feel underwhelming for the cost.
Worldgorger Dragon seems super interesting as some insurance to protect against board wipes (though the delayed trigger getting Stifle 'd would feel really bad), but I'm not sure how much else we could really abuse him since all my creatures would get summoning sickness again. It would untap my lands so if I had something like Hanweir Battlements in play I could give Feldon haste and use his effect again, but I just don't know that I run enough instants / flash stuff to warrant it. I'll have to consider trying him out.
Thanks a ton! I'll take a look at your list and let you know any feedback there!

Hey man, always love to see another fellow Feldon fan out there. Few questions and comments though:
I am not sold on the following cards: Sword of the Animist , Liquimetal Coating and Chandra, Flamecaller Sure we want to ramp up fast, but most of the time I don't have a creature or the mana to attack with the equipped Sword of the Animist . How is that for you? For Liquimetal Coating I don't see the potential, except to combo with Hellkite Tyrant . But the impact and chances seems to small to get them. For Chandra, she seems to cost to much for me. 6 mana is a lot to spend for. Are you using that for her +1 mainly? Is that 6 damage so much of a difference? Her +0 is oke, but also to much for 6 mana. Please tell me what your experiences are.
I would remove Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded and replace it for Sarkhan, Fireblood Cost a bit more, but you have the same effect with control over it. Plus you run a lot of dragons, so his other +1 seems to add up to that. Also I would drop Nahiri's Wrath . I think there are better removals that also don't cost two cards to play.
I like your inclusion of Rowdy Crew . Seems a lot of fun and not so bad when I think more about it.
Last are some cards I really think you should add: Goblin Engineer Drakuseth, Maw of Flames (new cards) Hazoret's Monument Endless Atlas and Warstorm Surge . Perhaps also Godo, Bandit Warlord , to get the specific equipments really helps a lot some times.
Overall it seems like a fun deck as well. Lot of looting, but maybe that is what I am missing.

You should probably run around 10 mana ramp sources, and your land count should probably go up to around 37 with such a top-heavy deck. Talisman of Indulgence , Rakdos Signet , Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , and even Iron Myr , Copper Myr , Alloy Myr , and Plague Myr work in a deck like this. Hazoret's Monument can be decent. Charcoal Diamond and Fire Diamond come into play tapped, but only cost 2 apiece.

I recommend Hazoret's Monument since it helps reduce the cost of the more expensive creatures. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is good for extra life loss, and helps get around cards like Glacial Chasm . Impact Tremors as always has great synergy with Goblins. Finally, Last-Ditch Effort is a good end it all card. If you find yourself lacking in draw power, I also suggest Tormenting Voice and Wild Guess .

I personally don't feel the new Rakdos is competitive. If anyone can prove me wrong, cool. Either way, he is a lot of fun. What I did with mine is create a "Russian Roullete" themed deck. It's very casual, cheesy board wipes, and some of my own minions are not immune to Rakdos Roullete. He's a lot of fun. Here are some useful picks you might want to consider.
Basically, blink Rakdos. :) If you find any others, please let me know. Here is the link to my version.
No graveyard recursion whatsoever, just a bunch of demons, some other useful critters. Some devils, imps. Somewhat refined draw, and a stupid amount of ramp. I saw the cost of Rakdos, and demons, and decided they needed to become affordable ASAP. Built for fun. It gets those demons out though, so you don't necessarily have to cut demons, in fact, because of Liliana's Contract being so cheap right now, I'd take advantage of that if you already haven't. Also, Revel in Riches ..... Running my version, you are basically playing Rakdos Roullette, again and again hehe. Mirror March looks interesting. I am considering Krark's Thumb for mine.
Be careful playing Painful Quandary! If you don't have a ton of discard to support that card, you can get targeted really fast. I run it in my Gonti's suicide hotline deck.
My Rakdos is either hilariously effective against something, or ridiculously ineffective. But, as a lover of board wipes, he is a ton of fun. I may consider Mirror March for my version, so thank you for sharing. Look through my creatures though! There are some fantastic demons that make the ramp worth it. I've got a pretty good ramp package too, so check that out as well.
