Secret Rendezvous


You and target opponent each draw three cards.

I had no idea Chivalric Alliance was a card. That's kind of nifty, but at the same time I feel like your comment highlights my biggest problem with white - all the card draw is conditional. There isn't anything like Harmonize (I know Secret Rendezvous is a thing, but oh hey look it has a condition...), and I really think it hurts the color overall.

Regardless, thank you for your comment!

77hi77 on Rakdos the Defil-Loving, Kind, Salt …

I'm in that awful/exciting place where I'm working on 4 decks at the same time. My wallet hates it.

I've always known that I want to build a Rakdos the Defiler deck. A while ago, I posted on here looking for ideas of chaotic cards/archetypes that fit his theme. "I attack, I sacrifice myself to do it. Uh oh, you took damage, sucks to be yoouuu" is such a chaotic way to play. As I'm building the deck now, though, I'm realizing that it's so much more fun to lean hard into the politics of it. Rakdos the Defiler is a commander that forces you to get into character, and I've been fantasizing about various ways to politic with Rakdos, which should also make it a more fun game than the rampant destruction I was originally aiming for.

The two cards that really made it click for me: Sower of Discord and Scheming Symmetry. I can just imagine myself drawing a card then, grinning ear-to-ear, asking: "If this were a 2v2 game, what would the teams be?". Then proceeding to play that character of the overtly nice one to my new bestie while we both tutor. Or Wishclaw Talisman, I tap it, tutor, then give it to my new bestie; now my new bestie has to decide whether they want to give it back or betray me. It presents everyone with character choices that they have to deal with, and Rakdos the Defiler is very likely to be the scariest commander on the board, which just adds to it all. That also allows me to build my favourite kind of deck: the glass cannon, knowing that it has built in politics as a defensive measure.

So I've been looking for cards in Rakdos like Secret Rendezvous, and more Sower of Discord kind of effects to go with that theme. So far I've got the cards I've already mentioned, Zurzoth, Chaos Rider to help my bestie draw cards (and to give Rakdos some tokens to sac), Bloodthirster to pick on my non-besties, and yeah that's about all I can find. If you know of cards that help, or if you've seen decks that really play into the Generous Untrustworthy Demon archetype, I'd love to see them!

Thanks all!

Are you looking for a a sort of winner-takes-all approach? Contested War Zone, Crag Saurian, Turf War, Fractured Loyalty

A combat control approach? Anything with goad, Commander 2013 curses, Seeker of Slaanesh, Goblin Diplomats, Shipwreck Singer

Group hug? Rites of Flourishing, Humble Budoka, Secret Rendezvous

DemonDragonJ on Prosperity or Cut a Deal?

shadow63, that is a good card, but it has the same problem as Secret Rendezvous in that the opponent shall benefit from it more greatly than does the caster, and I wish to avoid that situation.

I don't love Explorer's Scope, Bearded Axe, Goldvein Pick, and Helm of Kaldra. If it were me I'd add more equipment that grant evasion or some more card-draw.

Rogue's Gloves, Outpost Siege, Zephyr Boots, Secret Rendezvous, and Bladed Pinions are all decent. There are tons of options out there though.

I second Bloodforged Battle-Axe. Used to be a $10 card! Seems perfect in this deck.

Secret Rendezvous is a shit card if you have other options. And in green, you have other options. It's only a good card draw option in mono white.

I like your build.

I think I would cut Secret Rendezvous and go with something like Rishkar's Expertise. You don't have to worry about cutting a deal with an opposing player, and it's likely you'll have a pretty high-powered creature to dray you a lot cards. Recent reprints have brought it down in price, and it should meet your budget.
