I used to run Rakdos as a demon tribal commander and found great use in Cryptolith Fragment  Flip & Leechridden Swamp

It's really pricey atm, but I suspect The Meathook Massacre would do some work in here. It is Legendary though, so you might only want the 1.

Is Pestilence worth a look? It's 4 mana, but it's a strong effect. Also questionable, but Leechridden Swamp might work, and it hits each opponent.

Also for insight on the VOW decks...

Millicent, Restless Revenant relies on you amassing a ton of spirits on-board to really do her thing, but the engine feeds itself. Once you have a bunch, they're monstrously hard to get rid of and keep multiplying thanks to her ability. She snowballs very quickly with steady card draw. I modified my Millicent with a few more Bident of Thassa effects to really take advantage of the plentiful bodies to keep the cards coming and she can explode and become a menace very quickly.

Strefan, Maurer Progenitor is a beatstick-y guy on his surface...he wants you to cheat in giant vampires. But there's trickiness there too. Making blood tokens with small damage sources like Leechridden Swamp, and you can easily make the deck more of a reanimator/graveyard matters deck or even have an artifact matters subtheme because of the blood tokens. Good thing Bloodline Necromancer is already in the deck, he's so good in here!

Hey, well done with your upgrades to the precon. There's some cards in the precon to consider adding back in.

Cards that could be cut for these:


Some upgrades within the budget to consider:

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip is a mana rock to create Blood since it makes each player lose life. Sanctum of Stone Fangs is repeatable way to create Blood before combat on your turn. Leechridden Swamp is a land that can repeatedly create Blood for one mana.

Florian, Voldaren Scion is a Vamp who can be a lot of card advantage along with plenty of card selection. Florian doesn't care how your opponents lose life during the turn making it excellent with Fragment, Shrine and Leechridden and he doesn't have to attack to trigger.

Cranial Plating is tech to make Strefan huge since Blood tokens are artifacts. Mask of Memory is repeatable draw especially when your Commander has flying and wants to keep attacking.

Good luck with your deck.

With your low curve, do you think you Leechridden Swamp would work in here? It's still a swamp for Cottage, and you have some black permanents along with low average MV so you might have the spare mana mid game, where it's a land that can ping your opponent.

Back again, I’ve been test playing this deck again, because I love black burn, I come in peace with some friendly suggestions, Thrull Parasite would be interesting to extort for all the burn spells, I would mainboard Collective Brutality it can burn, and I can be of other value, Smallpox can burn and slow down the game, in between Collective Brutality and Smallpox they can service as a discard outlet for Alms of the Veins madness ability, I feel like 4 Piranha Marsh coming into play tap slows down the deck too much, I feel like it’s just not worth it for 1 life, I think Marsh Flats would be a good investment it’s the cheapest swamp fetching land that can fetch Leechridden Swamp, I wish more people would make Black burn builts, I am a black burn nut,

Thanks for posting, loricatuslupus. I can’t believe I overlooked Leechridden Swamp—I think it’s because this originally began as a Pauper build before I switched formats. It’ll most assuredly go in.

As for the other suggestions, I can see their value but I’d prefer to keep this as close to true burn as I conceivably can. Options are limited and I realize I’ll be painting myself into something of a corner with this stipulation, but I think the uniqueness of it all makes it a worthwhile pursuit. If I ever decide to retool this to make it a more competitive build, I’ll take your suggestions to heart. Thank you for your input.
