Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion

smilodex on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List]

@Imposter: Zedruu the Greathearted is a very fun group hug commander, who can also generate card advantage, BUT you need a lot of protection for Zedru and you have to play bad cards in your deck to get the best out of Zedru. You need so many resources to get him to work and without him, your deck is filled with a lot of horrible cards. So If you want to get the most value out of him, you have to play them, and then you also have to use Zedrus ability to give away these bad permanents. If you play this deck against advanced players, they will always remove Zedru when your bad permanent is on the stack. In this scenario you'll find yourself stuck in a very bad position. Some of these permanents you try to play in Zedru straight up loose you the game if you don't get rid of them. Phelddagrif is also often played as a group hug deck, he's a political tool (gift blockers to somebody who's in trouble), he can protect himself and he's an infinite mana outlet in the commandzone and he's part of an infinite combo with Suture Priest.

@Sephyrias: Mardu is currently in a pretty strong state of the meta, because of meta defining cards like Dockside Extortionist, Underworld Breach, Silence, Ad Nauseam/Necropotence/Peer into the Abyss, all the black tutors and all the asymmetrical stax pieces like Drannith Magistrate/Dauthi Voidwalker/Esper Sentinel/Grand Abolisher etc. The main reason of Kaalia's power is the fact that she can consistently cheat one of the following demons on the field in the first few rounds of the game: Razaketh, the Foulblooded or Vilis, Broker of Blood (Rune-Scarred Demon, Burning-Rune Demon, Doom Whisperer) Anyone who has ever played against a completely tuned Kaalia deck knows that the game is usually over as soon as one of the demons is on the battlefield and you have no answer for it. You can read exactly how this works (like Eisenherz wrote) in the respective Kaalia cEDH primers, but the deck has several combo lines to finish the game.

@Commander_JAR: I think you don't really understand the difference between high powered EDH and cEDH. Have you ever even bothered to read the Kaalia (cEDH) primer, why they only play 3-5 demons? Because they need the other deckslots for protection, interaction, carddraw, ramp and for tutors to find Razaketh. Flooding the board with Dragons Angels and attacking is maybe fun for you but a completely different strategy and by far not as effective as comboing with the demons... Please do us all a favour and educate yourself on the subject of competitive EDH before you post your opinion about ranking commanders. Take atleast a look at a few cEDH matches, deck techs and in general the currently strongest decklists (https://cedh-decklist-database.com) in the format and WHY they are as strong as they are.

Please read the description of the Tier List here, because we explain the difference between a strong and a competitive commander. I can highly recommend the youtube channel and the podcast of Playing with Power MTG, there you'll find many interesting videos on the subject of Competetive EDH (https://youtu.be/FwJyb8vk--4).

She can also cheat in Razaketh, the Foulblooded. There are a few mardu combos there. In addition, she can cheat in Bogardan Hellkite and then set up Worldgorger Dragon loops. Not saying that Tier 2 is or isn't suitable for her, but those are defnitely some outs that she has.

MrFantabulous Glorious End exiles all spells and abilities from the stack, but as you said the sacrifice is only a cost, not an effect. So here's what happens, play-by-play style:

You activate Razaketh, the Foulblooded, sacrificing Academy Rector. Because the sacrifice is part of his activation cost, Razaketh's ability hasn't resolved yet, and is sitting on the stack--under the Rector trigger.

So when your opponent casts Glorious End, both abilities are exiled from the stack, but you've already sacrificed the Rector so that doesn't get reversed.

Your opponent was correct. When you sacrifice Academy Rector to pay the cost of Razaketh, the Foulblooded's ability, the Rector's ability triggers and goes onto the stack on top of Razaketh's ability (there's only one stack; it's one of the game's zones, like the battlefield or exile). Your opponent responds with Glorious End, so it goes onto the top of the stack. Glorious End starts resolving first and removes both the Rector's trigger and Razaketh's activation from the stack. Neither of them resolve.

MrFantabulous on Glorious End interactions

So I recently asked a question about Academy Rector and Glorious End and the interaction about the exiling of Academy Rector where it was said that Academy Rector would just go to my graveyard with Glorious end casted/

But this last go, I had Razaketh, the Foulblooded out, sacrificing my Academy Rector to it. Then my opponent casted Glorious End .

He argued that I don't get a card draw or the exile ability. But I am fairly certain that Razaketh, and Academy Rectors are technically different stacks. Because of the wording on Academy Rectors, so he can either.

I told him I'd still get to search my library, but he could send Academy Rectors to my graveyard, he assumed that my sacrifice would happen, and "in response" I would use Academy Rectors exile ability, but I told him those were seperate, as I can't exile Academy Rectors until it hits my graveyard, then I get the option.

Am I correct, as in he could stop the Academy Rectors ability but not the search with this, at which point Academy Rector would just go into my graveyard?

I love this deck. I wonder if it would be ok to just run Razaketh, the Foulblooded and replace the other 2 demons for Final Parting, and Reanimate? I use that combo quite often in my shadowborn decks and it seems to work.

I tend to choose Rune-Scarred Demon when I have no other creatures to sacrifice to activate Razaketh, the Foulblooded immediately.

ghostfire86 I borrowed Songs of the Damned from your list and it's exactly what the deck needed!
