Rakdos, the Showstopper Discussion
3 weeks ago
I am looking for some legendaries which can serve as the basis for multi-tribe decks. I am talking creatures like Rakdos, the Showstopper which can be the basis for a demon/devil/imp deck, or Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for Zombies and Vampires.
I am specifically looking for cards who buff multiple tribes at ones. Anybody know any?

So yesterday I asked what my impmander should be either Blim, Comedic Genius or Rakdos, the Showstopper, and overwhelming people choose Rakdos so that what I'm going with. Now I'm asking for mean spirited "Prank" cards or trickery cards in the flavor as Cruel Entertainment. It's fun it mean and it has some minor political intrigue, and that what I'm looking for fun but mean pranks to pull on people like an imp deck should be. Link to my deck Here
Impish Delight- It's still not finished but has roughly 30 cards to fill with so pls help make sure that even the treats are tricks. Please.

What should i use for my imp tribalmmander?
Blim, Comedic Genius-is an imp so synergy is there. has an okay effect but i feel that it's a build around effect and won't help the tribal much but it also has flavor
Rakdos, the Showstopper- is a demon so no synergy with the tribe but his effect is much more helpful than Blim's to the tribe as a whole but feels less flavorful at the same time.
Now flavor is nice but not over important just stating my thoughts
Any ideas to make this more Tricky and mean spirited pranks are welcome
Also should I add devils as well as both devils and imps? As both are pranksters that cause harm.

Parun of Golgari was Svogthir, a Lich Elf.
Svogthir, Devkarin Lich
Legendary Creature - Zombie Elf
As long as Svogthir, Devkarin is in your graveyard, if your would draw a card, Dredge Svogthir instead.
Sacrifice two other creatures: Regenerate Svogthir, Devkarin Lich.
At the beginning of your endstep, if you control no other creatures, transform Svogthir, Devkarin Lich.
Svogthir, Lich Transcendant
Legendary Planeswalker - Svogthir
+1: Return target card from your graveyard to your hand, Dredge 2.
0: Create a 1/1 black and green Plant Zombie creature token with "Exile a creature card in your graveyard: put a +1/+1 counter on this creature."
-5: Return target creature from a graveyard to the battlefield under your control.
Okay, so the Paruns left are:
- : Obzedat, Ghost Council/Ghost Council of Orzhova(Incl. Karlov, Enezesku, Fautomni, Vuliev, and Xil Xaxosz)
- : Mat'Selesnya (Voiced by Trostani, Selesnya's Voice/Trostani Discordant
- : Szadek, Lord of Secrets
- : The First Simic (Yeah, if you have a better name go with it, but idk?)
- : Cisarzim, the Lord of Chaos (Seems to have been a cyclops)
- : Rakdos the Defiler/Rakdos, Lord of Riots//Rakdos, the Showstopper

Sorry, a bad typo above. I mention only having one other demon in the first paragraph. It is based on my comment in the second paragraph on Rakdos, the Showstopper and should have been placed there.

I see the control, but don't see much of the aggro. I don't necessarily see this being a win by turns 6-8. That is generally where I draw the line for aggro, but don't mistake me as the authority on that. Your deck average CMC is good for this, 3 or under in my opinion. Dreadhorde Butcher is a great early game play. I'd have 4 in this deck. Sprite Dragon is a good card, but not for this deck. You have at best, 6 chances for an island, given you are not short another color and that makes Sprite Dragon difficult to play early like you would want. Having either Nicol Bolas, the Arisen or Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip for the late game is doable, but if you take out those 2 and the 2 faerie dragons, I think you can find better fits. For my agro decks, I assume if I can't win early, I likely will not win at all. So I have no back up. This lets me focus on putting in more aggressive creatures for the early game. You have only one other demon.
Also note that Avatar of Woe and Bone Dragon really work against each other. Maybe focus on one of them. For instance, you have cards for exiling creatures (not good for the avatar). So maybe Bone Dragon is the choice here. You would likely want to not have cards that pull spells from your graveyard as well. Such as Unbreakable Bond if you want to keep getting the dragon back out. Also note that Rakdos, the Showstopper could really hurt you in this scenario even more than your opponent. Not sure that card fits here.
I would suggest looking into cards with menace. They are usually cheap and are very aggressive, given they are hard to block. Stormfist Crusader is a good one that can work with control as well. To keep the control aspect, put in cards such as Heartless Act and Terminate. This keep the opponent creature count low and the game in your hands. Act of Treason is a good one to keep in for control.
Sorry if I went too deep here. You can ignore me and it won't hurt my feelings. I'm just snooping around getting ideas of my own as well and waiting for criticism to come back to me from time to time.

For each permanent, flip a coin. If you win, its controller sacrifices it.
I've long wanted a random wipe. Extinction Event is very cool and I love it, but Boompile and morseo Puppet's Verdict are the closest examples. Based off of Rakdos, the Showstopper, commander of my Rakdos Cannibals deck
I'd like a common equipment with either a parasitic mechanic or set specific keyword.
