Rakdos-- Now with More Smuggler's Copter!

Pioneer* BR (Rakdos) Competitive Midrange




----------Why I created this deck----------

This is NOT a net deck. It is an evolution of a previous deck inspired by lack of responses to a friend's deck. Read the brief story, below:

I made a mono-black deck that focused on a couple of cards I pulled from packs (Phyrexian Obliterator and Sheoldred, the Apocalypse). I had fun with that deck and I won at my (admittedly not very competitive) lgs with that deck. However, I have been wanting to play a bit in the Rakdos space because I have been wanting to try out Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  , but I didn't want to just net-deck something. Then a friend showed up with a Chandra Tribal deck and I realized I had very little planeswalker hate in my mono-black deck. So, I started looking at planeswalker hate cards and realized I could splash red and get Bedevil into the deck-- a card I really like and LOVE the art, and then I could also try out Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  .

----------More about the deck----------

Okay, so I did look at some of the net decks to get an idea of the mana base to use, but outside of that, I think you'll see only vague glimpses of the "tier" deck that terrorizes the format.

I did get to play this last week at my lgs and went 3-0 without dropping a game. Fable of the Mirror-Breaker   is busted. Period. That card is just silly. Everything else in the deck seems okay, though copying Phyrexian Obliterator with Reflection of Kiki-Jiki   is nuts.

----------A note about the sideboard----------

Also, my sideboard is very specific to my lgs, so look at the maybe board for some ideas that may work better in your situation. Most people won't face someone who built a deck around life gain, so Tainted Remedy likely isn't a good card for your sideboard-- but it is amazing in my sideboard as I see such decks weekly.
