Instant (2)

Creature (1)

The deck is meant for multiplayer games in a semi-competitive group. The strategy is to land an early creature to deal damage to let us cast Rakdos, Lord of Riots and pop off the same turn or next turn with a discounter (i.e. Flame Rift for 8-12 mana discount) followed by any of the high impact cards in the deck. Running a tutorable infinite combo if we struggle to end the game with our higher tempo cards. We run a lot of discard and draw cards with some reanimation. There is anti-synergy with Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre shuffling the graveyard back in, but I don't care. Not running Emrakul, the Promised End because it's not fun to play against. The deck can easily be converted to a low budget version if you cut the fetches, Eldrazi, and Wheel of Fortune.
We run a bunch of cheap cards to ping our opponents to reliably drop Rakdos on curve. We also include a lot of 2-3 mana creatures that are aggressive and provide value (i.e. Mindblade Render) to also do the job.

  • Blisterspit Gremlin, Lobber Crew, Nettle Drone, Plague Spitter, Shepherd of Rot, Spear Spewer, Thermo-Alchemist, Sunscorched Desert, Cryptolith Fragment  , Stormfist Crusader, Sanctum of Stone Fangs, Impact Tremors
  • Outside of smashing in with our commander, we run many cards that provide us instant 6+ mana discounts on our fat creatures.

  • Combustible Gearhulk, Dire Fleet Ravager, Loyal Subordinate, Tectonic Giant, Terror of the Peaks, Fiery Confluence, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Flame Rift
  • We primarily win by dropping early Eldrazi or high-value creatures to overwhelm the table. We also have an infinite combo that is easily tutorable: Discounted Ancestral Statue + Terror of the Peaks/Impact Tremors/Nettle Drone.

  • Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, It That Betrays, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Artisan of Kozilek, Void Winnower, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Blightsteel Colossus
