Rain of Gore


If a spell or ability would cause its controller to gain life, that player loses that much life instead.

Ptolemaius, Cursed Annointer

Legendary Creature - Kor Cleric


For each in a cost, you may have target opponent gain 3 life rather than pay that mana.

, pay 5 life: Until end of turn, whenever an opponent would gain life, they lose that much life instead.


Oh, the possibilities of a walking Tainted Remedy. It's a shame we don't have that, yet.

Create a shard or wedge commander that has a key ability for a strategy that doesn't yet have its own dedicated commander, just like my card is for Rain of Gore decks.

Devourer of Joy

Creature - Turtle Demon

Hexproof, Trample

Whenever you cast your first spell each turn, exile that spell. During the next turn, you may cast it from exile without paying its mana cost.

Each player may cast spells as though they had flash.


So tell me, TypicalTimmy, do I get a pat on the back? ;)

Create a card that turns a mechanic on the head. Examples would be Rain of Gore/Tainted Remedy.

In: Crypt Rats... Neheb, the Eternal... Brash Taunter... Ob Nixilis, the Adversary... Black Market Connections... Tainted Remedy... Lethal Vapors... Curse of the Cabal... Bedevil

Out: Battle Strain... Rain of Gore... Furnace of Rath... Fate Unraveler... Bloodgift Demon... Stuffy Doll... Crackle with Power... Dreadbore... Temporal Extortion

Some pretty straight forward 1 for 1 swaps with better cards. Trying to add a little more interaction into the deck with cards such as Curse of the Cabal, Lethal Vapors, Neheb and Crypt Rats. Ob Nixilis looks interesting and is in there to test as well.

If there's one thing I know, it's how to make discard happen; have been known to use a Wheel & Deal Nekusar, the Mindrazer EDH deck.

In colors you have:

And probably so many more that I've forgotten. If I give it enough time, I might be able to find "retro" framed discard-specific cards.. but that sounds like fun. I'll update you if I cross any!

Out: Rain of Gore, Dreadbore, Stuffy Doll

In: Tainted Remedy, Bedevil, Brash Taunter

Rain of Gore is good, but it does not stop Lifelink, while Tainted Remedy does. Bedevil is just Dreadbore at instant speed for one more , but it can also destroy artifacts. Brash Taunter's tap ability (in my opinion) is way better than Stuffy Doll's. Plus, it can deal damage to any player, not just the one target.

If you would like more inspiration on how to play in the punisher style, I cordially invite you to the Rakdos Festival of Fire! You should find some more inspiration on group slug synergy within this decklist. Hope this helps!

tek357 depending on the colors you're using for your counter life gain Rain of Gore, Everlasting Torment, Flames of the Blood Hand, Roiling Vortex. Should be a good start to an anti-life gain.

Coiner's Row Charlatan

Creature - Vampire Rogue (Rare)

If a spell or ability an opponent controls would cause its controller to gain life, that player loses that much life instead and you gain that much life.


I love Rain of Gore and would absolutely love that effect on a creature. I think it'd be a very cheap rare that wouldn't be really good in general, but a fun include in vampire tribal commander decks, idk.

I'd like to see a card in some capacity similar to Wheel of Sun and Moon, because it's such a cool card!

I love replacement effects like those, it really bends strategies. I run Rain of Gore in my modern Rakdos deck's sideboard. It's not a very good deck, but I like it in any case.

One of my favorite cards from my rakdos-watermark deck is Rain of Gore. It gives a big fundamental game-mechanics change and doubles as a rad metal album title!
