Ruthless Deathfang Discussion

DeinoStinkus on Halloween Deck Ideas

To go with the trick or treat vibe you could potentially run Nekusar, the Mindrazer as a commander. You get some treats (extra cards) but only your opponent's get the trick. Plus it's in the right colors to run a neat sacrifice shell with cards like Butcher of Malakir, Ruthless Deathfang, Grave Pact, and Dictate of Erebos, plus it is easily run with the cards that have been suggested. Since you're new, Thraximundar may be a better commander as Nekusar takes some experience to run effectively. But it's up to you, I'm just offering some suggestions. Feel free to link the deck when you have something :)

i saw that that Ruthless Deathfang was listed as tier 4. I built a comp deck around him and have done pretty well especially against combo decks and he destroys voltron decks any reason for why he is in tier 4. Ruthless Deathfang eats ur stuff

Mj3913 That's true. My concern there would be that it might feel more like a faerie deck if the board state is more often Alela, a few faerie tokens, and a couple of dragons. Building around Ruthless Deathfang, Boneyard Scourge, Scourge of Nel Toth, Keiga, the Tide Star, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Yosei, the Morning Star, Martyr's Bond, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, and Phyrexian Tower could be interesting. Turning those tokens into other resources would help it feel more like a dragon deck.

Wonder and Skullclamp would be an autoinclude. You could do some aristocrats style gameplay while grinding through little self-recurring dudes like Bloodghast, Reef Worm, and Bloodsoaked Champion while churning through your deck with Midnight Reaper or Grim Haruspex, draining everyone with Blood Artist effects and simultaneously clearing the board with Grave Pact effects (found a use for Ruthless Deathfang!)

Havengul Lich, Mimic Vat and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder honorable mentions.

You could include some mind control effects to sac for value. Dragonlord Silumgar and Roil Elemental have a special place in my heart. And while we're on the topic of ETB's you could run a few one-off etb/death guys like Ravenous Chupacabra, Mulldrifter (I believe you can evoke and sac the dude while the evoke sacrifice trigger is on the stack but don't quote me on that) the primordials and Keiga, the Tide Star.

Jimmy_Chincilla, I did have Sunscorch in there during one of the initial drafts, but I felt like I was starting to run up against a really steep mana curve. I will definitely look for Cavern of Souls, that seems to be able to make a lot of things really damaging. Necromaster could definitely make some good sac fodder for Ruthless Deathfang.
