Reckless Rakdos (Ideal)

Modern Aggro BR (Rakdos) Burn Competitive



Just plain aggro

This deck seeks to quickly, and inevitably lower my opponent's life to 0. That's it. Tiny Red critters and spells to accelerate the pace are always welcome. What looks like it slows the deck?

This is my current iteration of it: Reckless Rakdos (Current)


Lava Spike , Lightning Bolt , Vexing Devil , Thunderous Wrath , Bump in the Night , Eidolon of the Great Revel , and Rift Bolt for Burn

Monastery Swiftspear and Vexing Devil (and Eidolon of the Great Revel ) for Aggro

Runaway Steam-Kin and Simian Spirit Guide are there for mana ramp

The Flame of Keld and Light Up the Stage for Card Advantage

Claim is an amazing recursion effect, especially for Vexing Devil , but it can target all my other creatures.


Eidolon of the Great Revel is there for Storm, or other stuff that casts more spells, like Control.

Tragic Slip is there for larger creatures, as smaller creatures are Bolt-able.

Rakdos Charm is for graveyard hate, tokens, and Chalice of the Void , er, artifacts.

Inquisition of Kozilek is for combo and control matchups

Spawn of Mayhem is for mirror matches and flying oriented decks.

Anger of the Gods backs up Rakdos Charm vs. go-wide strategies.


I used to have Falkenrath Aristocrat and Insolent Neonate for Flying/Evasion, but may put Gurmag Swiftwing or Impetuous Sunchaser for that role.

Dash Hopes is a current sideboard, and is fun and I like it, but I'm debating Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize to fill that role.

Collateral Damage and Shard Volley are appealing alternative burn options.

I'm debating Titan's Strength instead of Brute Force . I used to run it, and Scry is amazing, but sometimes the +3 toughness is amazing, I might go 2 and 2.

Quest for Pure Flame also seems interesting, what are your thought?
