SideBae on Edgar Markov and his Jacked Up Family

Ok. So, here're my suggestions; feel free to ignore any or all of them, if you so choose:

CARD DRAW/SELECTION: This is a big part of EDH.

TUTORS: These will make your deck more consistent.

RAMP: I think you're running too many lands for an aggro deck; also, your ramp package has room for improvement. Replacing a few lands with rocks and potentially some more creatures can make the deck a lot better.

REMOVAL: You have a lot of good removal spells, mainly because a lot of your removal is more than a one-for-one (see Fell the Mighty , Crackling Doom and Return to Dust ). In a format with three opponents, you typically want to be doing more than trading one-for-ones, a notable exception being Swords to Plowshares , which is an absurdly powerful card. I suggest running some of the following:

MANA BASE: Untapped lands are the best lands, but once you hit three colors, it can be tough to make your mana work while coming in untapped. Consider the following:

CREATURES: There're some creatures I think you should upgrade from the Maybeboard:

MISCELLANEOUS: There're some other cards you might like. Consider the following:

  • Shared Animosity : One time, many moons ago, I built a modern goblins deck with this. It was alright/terrible in Modern, but in a relatively slow-moving format like EDH it can be a real powerhouse.

  • Smallpox / Pox : Smallpox is easily one of my favorite cards in EDH, and may be good with your high land count, even if you choose to cut three or four lands. It'll depend on your meta and your final deck list. It could be awful, but it could be good. Pox is much more likely to be terrible, but is worth having on your radar.

  • Suppression Field : You're running very few planeswalkers, fetches, and with a little crafting, you can have very few creatures and/or artifacts with activated abilities. In my meta, this card is absurd. Especially against me.

  • Price of Glory : This discourages instant-speed interaction. In a deck like this, it's very likely to hose blue-players without really touching you.

  • Necrogen Mists : This is a good way to limit your opponents' ability to oppose you, especially if you choose to run Falkenrath Gorger off your Maybeboard.

  • Armageddon : Speaking of limiting your opponents' ability to stop you... Just make sure you cast it while you're ahead. Decree of Annihilation is good for this at instant-speed.

  • Stranglehold : Everyone searches. Make 'em stop.

  • Aura of Silence : This is good in most metas. The tax effect is brutal, and the sacrifice has the ability to break a combo in a pinch.

  • Rule of Law : This'll hose pretty much any combo deck. I hate playing against this card. (I play Storm.)

  • Authority of the Consuls : This is a good way to make sure opponents can't poop out blockers too quick.

I really suggest the scry lands from m20/theros block for this deck. Also some sac outlets would be great Barrage of Expendables seems kinda crazy in this deck Sake with Goblin Bombardment Pyrohemia also doesn't look bad

I like Shamanic Revelation , but I'd consider Rishkar's Expertise , as well. Good draw, and likely to put a big fatty on the board, too. Cards like Caltrops and Pyrohemia are great for enrage triggers, and another budget option is Task Mage Assembly .

Love the infinite combo, too.

I always struggle with cutting cards. Some that I'd probably think about dropping are Camaraderie , Pyrohemia , Wilt-Leaf Liege , Conclave Cavalier , and Sun Titan

Very nice deck, +1! I'm collecting ideas for my own Koth OBK. Bad news, though, if you haven't heard - Mana Geyser is banned in OBK.

Some card thoughts on Koth: I'm looking to experiment with e.g. Doubling Cube (generally good?), Glacial Chasm + Acidic Soil (goes well with Pyrohemia too), then maybe Shrine of Burning Rage as backup.

Also looking for upgrades to my Jaya/Wheel deck: Jaya Ballard Returns (Oathbreaker)

bushido_man96 on Rakdos commander

Rakdos, Lord of Riots can be a decent Commander, and you could run Rakdos, the Showstopper in the 99, but he requires some build-around. Cards like Subversion , Pyrohemia , Pestilence , and Palace Siege can help you get damage in to be able to cast him and use his mechanic to cast creatures for less. Some small CMC critters that tap to deal one damage are also good for getting him out onto the field. But this suite of cards can take up much needed slots, so consider carefully when building around him. Cheap, early drop aggro helps too, but you need to include at least around 7 to hope of getting one early enough to do what you want.

SpiralWolfos on Does a card like this ...

I'm not sure where you're playing the deck at, but there are cards like Pestilence , Pyrohemia and Festering Evil if you're willing to put the mana into them. Fiery Confluence will also allow you to deal 1 damage 3 times, similar to the effect that cdkime was talking about. If you are using this effect for Polyraptor, I think Izzet Staticaster could be pretty cute repeatable way to ping the original Polyraptor as well as all the tokens. Hopefully you'll be able to use one of these.
