It's not really a great card, but Shivan Gorge can deal some damage to each opponent, which can let you shave mana off of spells for a turn. There is also stuff like Spear Spewer that pings each player, that's a much better way to achieve that goal I suppose. There are also Kessig Flamebreather and Firebrand Archer that can turn any non-creature spell into damage, not sure you have enough stuff to justify them, but felt they were worth a mention. There is also good old Pyrohemia/Pestilence, which can ping each opponent (and it clears out x/1s if tokens are an issue in your area). Not sure if you will be able to get in for damage consistently, but Rite of the Raging Storm tokens usually suck to block, so you might get 5 damage per turn in some metas.

I feel like it's worth throwing in something like Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer if you want a sac outlet that can clear out lots of bodies and derive value from it, Feeder even works with Pitiless Plunderer (or another 'mana from dead creature' card, Pawn of Ulamog and Bog Initiate will work on a budget) and Gravecrawler to go infinite.

Final point, maybe a few Annihilator creatures that have high MV as their drawback, they tend to be colourless anyways, so can give a full discount and be free sometimes. Artisan of Kozilek and Pathrazer of Ulamog are good examples that aren't too pricey, but Titans are obviously more expensive/powerful, it's worth noting you'll always get cast triggers, even if you're casting them for nothing/very little. Some of these can also let you run cards that care about high MV, like Protection Racket and Timesifter, both are very strong in some metas. Heck, I think I'd just run Protection Racket either way now that I think about it, I'm not sure there is a drawback to that card in this deck, it's big drawback is that it's bad in combo decks because people won't give you combo pieces, but in a deck that isn't attached to any one card you can run it safely. There is also Meteor Golem, Platinum Emperion and even Platinum Angel to offer some value if stuff like Darksteel Colossus or Blightsteel Colossus are over the budget, and there are big old utility beaters like Tsabo Tavoc that are worth a look, you can shave 5 mana off still.

Rakdos is a pretty nifty Commander, hope you're having fun with him!

Platinum Emperion would work but it will not save your board

Vicious Shadows will punish the opponent of your choice for each creature that dies. Pair this with Blasphemous Act to do it your self all in the same turn.

king-saproling I've listed Platinum Emperion and Platinum Angel in the "flex slots" category of the primer to be swapped out for Recruiter of the Guard and Imperial Recruiter respectively. Swapping these out gives the deck more tutor options and plays more consistently as a result. I do think Moonsilver Key would be another good addition for obvious reasons, but if you had to pick something else to cut, what would it be? I'm currently considering cutting Mirage Mirror for it, but would be curious to hear your thoughts?

The whole reason for the flex slots category is so the deck can be played at higher power levels where infinite combos are more common and acceptable. Otherwise I usually just run the current list (at my LGS and with friends) so games have more variance and are more "fair" for the group.

Kimset That's actually a great idea. Thank you for the suggestion. I also have access to some pretty high quality proxies so that's always an option as well. My problem is I like to own at least one copy of every card I play, so we'll see. You make an excellent point about it being a legit WOTC product. I do like that.

Ognis, the Dragon's Lash is the first time we had a cmdr who cares about haste. So that's cool.

Rumor Gatherer is good card draw in white. I'm hyped to see card draw in white.

Glittering Stockpile is pretty unique we haven't seen a mana rock that turns into a ritual later.

Luxior, Giada's Gift is probably the most unique card from this main set.

Angel of Suffering is pretty unique as well. There's only a few cards I can think of that are a lil like this. Platinum Angel and Platinum Emperion. Pairing Angel of Suffering with Wheel of Sun and Moon creates the dream sceneiro for Syr Konrad, the Grim.

Leaving the main set and moving to the cmdr set

Tivit, Seller of Secrets is the first time we got a cmdr that cares about voting and that's awesome.

The Beamtown Bullies seems like a legit cmdr that does something like we've never seen before and make you want to put cards in your deck that you wouldn't want in any other deck. Cards like Eater of Days lol

Mari, the Killing Quill is the first cmdr that cares about assassins. That's freaking cool

Syrix, Carrier of the Flame is clearly made for Phoenix tribes and its sweet

Bennie Bracks, Zoologist more sweet mono white card draw. Yes more cards like this please.

Smuggler's Share same as above but also ramp. Soo good.

Resourceful Defense wins the cmdr set for the most unique card from this set. We've never had a card printed that can move counters of any kind around at instant speed and stick around to do it again whenever you want. So good so Broken and so unique.

And to finish this off. More white card draw.

Maybe Memnarch, Platinum Angel, and Platinum Emperion as closers too. The platinum guys seem extra good in your deck since they'll often have protection. Stonecoil Serpent is a good aggro creature. Soul of New Phyrexia is good. Workshop Elders might be cute. If your creatures get enough protection from Rebbec I guess you wouldn't need flying so much.

The only moderately successful Possessed Portal build I've seen used Abundance to fake-draw lands to make tokens for Rampaging Baloths. There's probably much better options now.

Platinum Emperion should work fine in a control deck as long as you can protect it.

im currently using it with Platinum Emperion using it with Unmarked Grave is a pretty good set up. Possessed Portal is a crazy card but i wouldnt know how to build around it.
