Torgaar, Famine Incarnate Discussion

Silence is one of the best combo protection spells you can run.
The Exquisite Blood / Cliffhaven Vampire combo seems out of place here. you're better off focusing on overlapping combos rather than having a combo which doesn't really interact with any other pieces. Torgaar, Famine Incarnate is expensive and slow, plus isn't actually a win condition. Avalanche Riders , Stuffy Doll and Silent Arbiter could be replaced for more combo density. Unless you're in a beats heavy meta, Maze of Ith also seems out of place.
Goblin Bombardment is another solid outlet, I'm also surprised there's no Viscera Seer . Painful Truths is generally better than Phyrexian Arena . Wheel of Fortune is another good draw card you're not running.

Brand new user here, brand new player (been toying with MTG Arena to figure out builds I want to invest in).
I've been playing around with Omniscience . I've seen the build that combos it with Overflowing Insight to make the opponent deck out, but that just doesn't seem fun to play with or against. Instead, I've been trying to play as many big creatures as possible and win the same turn in comes out.
Here's where I'm struggling: Omniscience is a big card, so I know the deck needs to ramp quickly. I also know I need to have a constant inflow of cards into my hand. Also fine. The problem is that, when I put together the ramp cards and the drawing engines, there isn't really any room in the deck for anything else. I can fit a few big hitters, and not much to protect me until turn 5+ when I can get all of this out. Here's what I'm running right now on Arena:
2x New Horizons
2x Mana Geode
The idea is to ramp, draw cards, get Samut, Tyrant Smasher out so all my big hitters have Haste and take the game the turn they come on. I know I'm doing something inefficiently, I just don't know what. Any help would be really appreciated here.

Hiya!! Looking good so far! one of the trickiest thing with a deck like this is balancing the chaos/ group slug nature of red/black with the politics that Xantcha wants to direct.
I think Akroan Horse is perfect for you. and also Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , these two cards are great for getting other people at the table to join your side, or at least reconsider attacking you. Havoc Festival is also a must. Even Torgaar, Famine Incarnate would fit too. Vial Smasher the Fierce helps sow those seeds of Chaos as well.
I think political Rakdos is one of the coolest archetypes, and this deck seems like it's got the potential! Keep at it! How has it been to play so far?

If you put a Rakdos the Defiler into play with the ability, you don't need to sacrifice anything.
Putting a Silent Arbiter into play attacking means you can attack with any number of critters, but they can only block with one.

i might have something to add to your sideboard if you face off against lifegain or at a disadvantage, this card can help you out. Torgaar, Famine Incarnate

I would try adding some discard outlets so that you can more reliably get creatures to reanimate into your graveyard. Right now you have to discard to hand size or draw Entomb or Buried Alive . I would try out creatures that give you this effect repeatably like Cryptbreaker , Pack Rat , or Putrid Imp . These creatures give you a better early game on their own and can be sacrificed to Buried Alive or Torgaar, Famine Incarnate .
