Theater of Horrors Discussion

Curse of Opulence will serve well here. Also new Pyre of Heroes really just powerhouses your deck through it’s best gas.

I recommend Theater of Horrors for some card draw effects. Something like Faithless Looting wouldn’t be bad in here.

I have an edgar build. Most believe it doesn’t take much to pilot vamps to a W, but truth be told it requires a lot of planning. For that reason, I’d recommend lowering your curve wherever possible.

Indulgent Aristocrat , Knight of the Ebon Legion , and/or Vampire Cutthroat (Skulk is underrated). These are some vamps that will push damage earlier.

Think Boros Charm - Unbreakable Formation and +1 Dreadbore - Bedevil

Wear is solid removal.

Rivenor Always love more options, thanks for the suggestions. Theater of Horrors is something I've never thought about, neat that it can stack a bunch of cards.

Looking at some party cards, the problem I'm coming across is lack of synergy but I'll recommend some anyway. You really want your commander out early with as many ETBs as you have and being how aggressive he is.

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden: Rogue. Gives you a decent body with repeatable card advantage.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser: Rogue. Either card advantage or point the biggest (or weakest utility) creature at another player.

Rankle, Master of Pranks: Another rogue. Less synergistic but he has three modes and haste. Plus, you can choose as many modes as you like.

Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion: Warrior. Red ramp and card fixing.

Priest of Forgotten Gods: Cleric. Potential card advantage and removal plus ramp.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs: Warrior. Provides plenty of deathtouch chump blockers with your commander.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed: Cleric. Allows all of your creatures to die once and come back. Plus, kills any human that gets through.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury: Rouge. Neat. Not the greatest in a vacuum but replaces himself, normally with something good.

Anarchist: Wizard. If you get more spells then maybe.

Cinder Seer: Wizard. Not the best pinger but a pinger nonetheless.

Coffin Queen: Wizard. Playable effect.

Dismissive Pyromancer: Wizard. Decent rummage affect and can take one guy out.

Embermage Goblin: Wizard. Not the best pinger but possibly playable. Hits any target.

Fervent Paincaster: Wizard. Hits creatures.

Fireslinger: Wizard. Best pinger so far at 2 cmc. Hits any target.

Nezumi Graverobber: Rogue/Wizard. Starts off as a graveyard hating rogue and turns into a grave stealing wizard.

Going through cards and the party subtheme seems a bit sad. Some of the above are decent but there isn't a ton to go on in my opinion.

On the first strke though, there are a million cheap red spells that grant first strike temporarily as an instant or as an enchantment. I would recommend running 1 or 2 of the instants to keep opponents on their toes when they think about blocking you.

As for creatures,

Soul of Shandalar: Mana wise, not the best. But can ping and has built in first strike.

Sparring Collar: Cheap first strike and can be attached instant speed to either dissuade blocks/attacks or murder something.

Sword of Vengeance: I don't think its as good as above due to not being able to move at instant speed, but it grants vigilance as well. It is nice to keep a first strike flying blocker up after it attacks.

Akki Coalflinger: Way to help out the team.

Legion Loyalist: Way to help out the team. (My favorite of the team helping bunch).

Bloodmark Mentor: Way to help out half of the team.

Akroma's Memorial. Expensive but a classic.

I think a couple or few first strike options would work out. As for cards that I think you could do better than,

Bloodgift Demon: Good card but his effect is a bit expensive for card advantage. Maybe try Theater of Horrors. Its essentially the same as phyrexian arena but for rakdos.

Endbringer: Potentially a great card but I wouldn't count on using his other effects with as little colorless mana sources that you have.

Master of Cruelties: Can be good but typically best if saved for kalia combos. He shuts down attacking with everyone else which limits you to dealing with one opponent at a time.

Rakdos Firewheeler: Not bad but repeatable effects may be better.

if your dropped Theater of Horrorsyou could run Lurrus of the Dream-Den as a companion. Zulaport Cutthroat is also probably worth a look and Mogg War Marshal can do alot of work Serrated Scorpion is pretty much strictly better that tattered mummy

Grim Haruspex is better than theater of horrors 9/10 time

Theater of Insanity

Commander / EDH* DarkHero

Just looking for some opinions to finalize this bad boy. I've fallen bellow 100 cards, could probably justify cutting others, and I'm not married to the commander.

So the main strategy will be to do a sort of soft lock with Sire Of Insanity/Descent into Madness effects that empty hands, and then use Theater of Horrors/Sunbird's Invocation/Stolen Strategy/Sin Prodder ect. to get around the effect.

Alternatively, big Demons from big mana, Havoc Festival with effects like Archfiend of Despair, and something along the lines of Bloodchief Ascension/Pain Magnification/Shrieking Affliction

Thanks guys <3

Scallywallwest on Rakdos: Threat or Menace?

11 months ago

Thanks for that, rjife! Those all sound like good suggestions, and all of them address problems I can understand. I forgot Theater of Horrors existed, to be honest! :b It seems like a good suggestion, considering the deck strat.

Also. What do you think of Rakdos's Return as a finisher for opponents? Thank you for commenting! :D
