Oni of Wild Places Discussion

Here’s some decent pieces to both help with the war theme and make life difficult for your enemies.

Fumiko the Lowblood because samurai

Warmonger Hellkite makes creatures attack and can be pumped

Incite RebellionandDisrupt Decorum both have that sort of subterfuge, disrupt enemy lines feel to me.

Grand Melee because open war

Goblin Diplomats because diplomacy is needed in every war

Prowler's Helm like a spy slipping through their defenses.

Outpost Siege card advantage and siege is referenced.

Blackblade Reforged and Strata Scythe can both make varchild big after a bit of development. More survivors

Grenzo, Havoc Razor

Paragon of Fierce Defiance

Godo, Bandit Warlord and while you’re at it you could add Helm of the Host as an easy win

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell

Bloodsworn Steward

Archetype of Aggression

Dockside Extortionist because there is always people like that in war

Neheb, the Eternal is likely worth a spot.

Oni of Wild Places may not necessarily fit the theme but repeatedly bouncing varchild has its advantages

Signal Pest

Iron Myr for mana

Legion Warboss

Angrath's Marauders

Downhill Charge seems pretty good.

Fatal Frenzy and Mercadia's Downfall feel decent too.

Seize the Day is very war themed to me.

By Force implies hostilities

Burn at the Stake might be a big kill card after you’ve taken a bunch of survivors. 3 times the amount you tap gets huge quick.

World at War

Mizzium Mortars

Crawlspace so you can bottleneck their armies like Sparta did against the Persians lol.

Voyager Staff to remove varchild maybe?

That’s what stood out most to me with a quick glance through EDHRec. I’ll keep brainstorming for ya though!

Oni of Wild Places is a cool card that will let you put red stuff back in your hand. to recur etbs of to get that lethal swing with master of cruelties

You will definitely want to consider the new red god from War of the Spark... Ilharg, the Raze-Boar . Huge friend with ETBs. He doesn’t really gel with Feldon but if he happens to be in the graveyard Feldon can get him back and you can then unload goodies from your hand. There’s also Oni of Wild Places for more recursion.

Not trying to sound rude, but the deck seems really unfocused outside of just getting big, free creatures.

Oni of Wild Places + Rakdos the Defiler : When Oni of Wild Places is in play, bring Rakdos the Defiler into play tapped and attacking with Kaalia's ability. Since you didn't declare Rakdos as an attacking creature, you ignore the first half of his ability. Deal damage, opponent sacs half their non-demon permanents. At the beginning of your next upkeep, use Oni's ability to put Rakdos back into your hand to repeat the process.

Kaalia was one of my first EDH commanders and I loved her, but she draws way too much attention at the table. So I've started going with commanders who don't have such a huge presence. One guy I know runs a bunch of land destruction/discard with her to make sure that opponents have a really hard time responding to Kaalia and her hoard.

If I can offer some advice for things to take out...

Tariel, Reckoner of Souls - Not a bad card by any means, but in Kaalia unless you plan on randomly resurrecting your opponents' creatures, this probably won't do much.

Utvara Hellkite - Not a bad card on it's own, but it just really shines in a dragon tribal deck imo. Again, a card I can't imagine you getting a whole lot of mileage out of.

Dragon Tempest - Again, another card really focused for dragon tribal.

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.

Conjurer's Closet , Skull Collector , Decoction Module , Erratic Portal , Oni of Wild Places ,

Basically, blink Rakdos. :) If you find any others, please let me know. Here is the link to my version.

Let's play Rakdos Roullette~

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.

I hope your version turns out well for you and what you're going for. Also, Bontu's Monument Herald's Horn Hazoret's Monument COST REDUCTION FOR DEMONS!
