DreadKhan on Rakdos Santa Deck

I like stuff like Dream Devourer in big Rakdos decks, it's a great way to get a Captive Audience out early. Rakdos Keyrune is another interesting mana rock in Rakdos, a 3/1 First Strike can do work on many boards (it can kill a Golem if necessary) while also offering you ramp. I think my final idea to speed this up a bit is to try out some Dark Rituals? There are other Red rituals, but Dark Ritual is a great rate.

Have you thought about tossing in some token generators? Even a Kher Keep might do some work, those 0/1s are about as useless a creature as you can give. There is also Trading Post, which can generate value if you aren't donating yet.

I suspect this deck could use something like Night's Whisper or even Phyrexian Arena, but now that I think about it, why not throw in Midnight Oil and/or Demonic Lore? Neither is so cruel as to be unfair, but both offer card draw, much gentler options than Demonic Pact for example!

Do you have trouble getting in with Blim, or having him get targeted? Whispersilk Cloak is clunky, but it might be useful as your deck really cares about having him out.

Just curious, but Thieves' Auction seems weirdly risky with Blim, doesn't his ability also hurt you potentially if you control a bunch of stolen stuff? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding how these cards interact.

Gotta Love Zurgo! A buddy of mine has a Zurgo Deck as well that I usually had a hard time beating. His main goal was to get Zurgo out as quickly as possible and then make him unblockable somehow. Usually by giving him shadow or something like that. Dauthi Embrace, Dauthi Trapper, Whispersilk Cloak, Prowler's Helm, might be useful to you, I see you already have Rogue's Passage. Smash ON! Anywho, good luck! +1

SpeedOfLightning - I am deliberating a similar conundrum as I would like to add things like Whispersilk Cloak to my deck (Gishath Spared No Expense!!!) but it is getting pretty hard to decide on what to cut. So glad I was able to spread the indecision!

In regard to the mass protection, you are running the best mass protection with Asceticism. Hexproof vs Shroud plus you can regenerate creatures for two mana. Privileged Position offers a bit wider protection as it covers all permanents for the same cost but for you and me, Asceticism is the better of the two. I have been working on picking one up but keep blowing my budget on other needs. Steely Resolve I do like for the cheap cost so I can drop it down very early. I do have a few things that it messes with like Marauding Raptor's ability to trigger Enrage, the double-strike ability of Boros Charm, along with a couples others but for only two mana, you can offer peace of mind knowing your dino hoards are safe!

lhetrick13 - Very true! To be honest, that combo to draw has made me consider cutting Polyraptor from the deck. I know it seems crazy to remove such a powerful dino, but if I had to remove one to avoid the combo, I'd rather have the ramp and add in another powerful dino or Forerunner of the Empire.

Wow, you're absolutely right! All this time, and I just realized that. I completely agree, Steely Resolve or Privileged Position could offer better protection. I may opt for Whispersilk Cloak however, as the unblockable could make a larger impact. What are your thoughts on Asceticism over Steely Resolve or Privileged Position? I found that Asceticism is very similar, even same mana cost. But being able to tap 2 to regenerate a creature could definitely be a life saver.

Deflecting Swat is a fantastic card in any deck, but you're right; it's a big investment. I'm only adding it as I had a copy of it in another deck. Might I suggest Bolt Bend as a budget option? I plan to replace the Deflecting Swat with that. It offers the same effect for only one mana if you have a strong enough creature. Since we'd be using it to protect Gishath, you'd likely have the reduced mana cost already.

SpeedOfLightning - Good thoughts on the Forerunner of the Empire and Rampaging Ferocidon. I avoid the Marauding Raptor + Polyraptor combo because technically it creates an infinite loop that you can not stop and technically ends the game but the presence of Marauding Raptor would complicate that!

For protection, you might consider Steely Resolve or Privileged Position over cards like Swiftfoot Boots. I am assuming you are likely wanting to protect Gishath and she already has Haste that is kinda redundant. Whispersilk Cloak has more potential is you are set on an equipment. Deflecting Swat would be a great addition but that is a solid investment. Trying to pick up one myself but there are other more pressing needs than that at the moment.

Whispersilk Cloak for 3 turn commander damage

Mana base is all wastes? What a waste .... you should definitely add some non-basics to add flexibility.

Probably some more ramp wouldn't hurt, with a side of card draw
