Theater of Horrors


At the beginning of your upkeep, exile the top card of your library.

During your turn, if an opponent lost life this turn, you may play cards exiled with this.

: This deals 1 damage to target opponent or planeswalker.

11/23/22 - Madness update

I'm really low on madness cards. Needs to be far higher for an anje deck.




Removed most end game threats + interaction that didn't have madness, since madness tech needs to be there in high density and the deck can win through that stuff mainly.

Gidgetimer I did get a new copy of Necropotence. I had sold mine after not having used it in years, but this is the perfect deck for it.

TheOfficialCreator Light Up the Stage and Theater of Horrors work great!

Thank you both for these great suggestions. I also added

TheOfficialCreator Thank you, Light Up the Stage looks great with Spellweaver Helix. I wish Vilis, Broker of Blood was a dragon. MaybeMaskwood Nexus to make him a dragon… Theater of Horrors looks perfect, though!

multimedia on Rakdos, Lord of Riots Demon Tribal

Hey, with Rakdos as Commander then consider some effects that make an opponent lose life without attacking? Rakdos can't be cast without first an opponent losing life and effects that cost no additional mana as well as being repeatable are nice since you want to use your mana on your turn to cast Demons or draw. Get repeatable value while also making your opponent or each opponent lose life.

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip is ramp and an enabler for Rakdos. Plague Spitter is a hidden gem, repeatable 1 damage to each creature at your upkeep can wreck opponent token strategies especially Spirits who are flying blockers against Demons and opponent's green mana dorks. Lower mana cost options, less than 4 mana, are better since they can potentially be cast before Rakdos.

With Rakdos as Commander and playing Demons you need less ramp because he's a source of ramp for Demons. For this reason I would make draw more important then ramp. Still play some ramp, but more draw lets you draw Demons to cast using Rakdos mana cost reduction.

For more draw my advice is make cards with repeatable effects a priory for upgrades. Draw spells that are a single effect are fine too, having both is best. Seize the Spoils, Big Score and Unexpected Windfall is loot (draw and discard) and ramp with treasures, that's really helpful for Demons to get three effects with one card.

If you're interested I offer more advice in another comment. Would you like more advice?

I’ve had a lot of fun with Theater of Horrors but that’s got black in it...if you can swing it, might be worth a look. Great way to get non-suspend/etc cards exiled.

Cards like the two you mentioned are too much of a gamble for me. On one hand with Valakut Exploration yes you can play that exiled card but you must have enough mana to do so and you aren't going to know if you will have enough mana unless you are running other cards that help you look at the top of your library beforehand. Theater of Horrors is too situational. You have to deal combat damage to be able to play the exiled card. Sure you might be in the ideal situation where it works but it likely won't work every time. And that means possible exiled cards going to waste. The last ability is 4 CMC to deal 1 damage to an opponent or planeswalker. That's expensive for 1 damage. Let your vampires do the damage.

Good point! I actually have a Mind's Eye in my binder, so that will go in for sure.I'm okay with a $10 card - Vanquisher's Banner - but I should wait until my next payday. That seems really good for this deck. Some of those others, yeah they're cheap. Maybe I can find them at my LGS or maybe a friend has one I can trade.

What is your opinion of cards like Valakut Exploration or Theater of Horrors that aren't really card draw but can still give advantage? I've been eyeing some of those.
