"Kroxa is possessed by a never-ending hunger, he eats not for sustenance or pleasure, but because it is his nature."

This is a Rakdos discard deck where the main focus is to get as many Megrim type effects in play as possible and then cast something like Reforge the Soul to ping our opponents to death. This is somewhat of a nontraditional build, so we're playing a fair amount of tutors and card draw to make sure we can do what the deck wants to do. There are no infinite loops or game winning combos in this deck, and I'd like to keep it that way.

I've been debating for quite some time now about switching the commander of this deck to Chainer, Nightmare Adept, but haven't yet. He seems like a better fit giving us a more reliable reanimation package, but I also just really like Kroxa. I mean c'mon... look at that art.

This deck plays hard and fast quickly overwhelming our opponents with value and damage before they can react.

The main synergy/ strategy of this deck is to drop as many discard/ draw payoffs as possible and trigger several different permanents to drain our opponents to death or amass value. We can do that with the following cards...

Discard triggers:

  1. Bloodchief Ascension
  2. Fell Specter
  3. Liliana's Caress
  4. Megrim
  5. Raiders' Wake
  6. Syr Konrad, the Grim

Draw Triggers

  1. Underworld Dreams
  2. Sheoldred, the Apocalypse
  3. Orcish Bowmasters

Value Payoffs:

  1. Geth's Grimoirefoil
  2. Sangromancer
  3. Tergrid, God of Fright  
  4. Waste Not
  5. Dauthi Voidwalker

Draw and Discard (Wheel) Package:

  1. Dark Deal
  2. Dragon Mage
  3. Incendiary Command
  4. Khorvath's Fury
  5. Magus of the Wheel
  6. Memory Jar
  7. Reforge the Soul
  8. Runehorn Hellkite
  9. Wheel of Fortune
  10. Wheel of Misfortune
  11. Winds of Change

Some additional synergy...

Anger = Excels in a discard strategy.

Library of Leng = Also excels is a discard strategy.

Buried Alive = Quite possibly the best tutor in our deck, allowing us to grab Anger / Runehorn Hellkite and Stinkweed Imp or whatever other creature we may want to reanimate.

Stinkweed Imp = Gives us the gas we need in a single turn to escape kroxa. Also one of the best blockers a guy could have.

Geth's Grimoire = This card is absolutely busted with any wheel effect.

Waste Not = This card is also absolutely busted with any wheel effect.

Tergrid, God of Fright   = And... well... you guessed it.

Anvil of Bogardan + Underworld Dreams / Sheoldred, the Apocalypse / Orcish Bowmasters = A little extra damage for them draws.

Sundial of the Infinite + Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger = Keep Kroxa on T3.

Bloodchief Ascension / Sangromancer / Sheoldred, the Apocalypse = All synergize really well with wheels gaining us a silly amount of life with one wheel.

Agadeem's Awakening   / Animate Dead / Dance of the Dead / Feldon of the Third Path / Necromancy / Reanimate / Sheoldred, Whispering One / Stitch Together / Underworld Breach = All pair really well with a discard strategy, allowing us to recur creatures we've discarded. Usually for a discount rate as well.

This deck is very focused and synergistic. It does exactly what it wants to do, while doing it very quickly. It can accrue massive amounts of value while dealing massive amounts of damage directly to opponents.

The downside to this however, is that it will draw a lot of hate. And we don't run many creatures to block an onslaught of attackers. We're also very light on removal. Best thing to do is just go for the throat as quickly as possible. Try to re-animate what we can for blockers, and hopefully get some lifegain going to bring us to the late game if necessary.

This is my Mardu library of commander decks. All four decks are some combination of colors that belong to the Mardu wedge. My Kaalia of the Vast deck is the flagship deck and does not run any proxies. The rest of the decks in this library run proxies (of the expensive cards that are shared with my Kaalia deck) and are indicated with a "P" in their respective deck lists.

Everything in this library is sleeved with dragon shield classic gold sleeves and dragon shield perfect fit inners. I use white, black, and red ultimate guard sidewinder 100 deck boxes, an assortment of dice in the same colors, and a dice bag that's on theme as well. All my decks and accessories are then stored in a Dewalt mid pro organizer. The two playmats I use for this library are either the damnation art playmat by Seb Mckinnon or the akroma angel of fury playmat by Terese Nielsen. Both playmats are signed by the artists in gold paint pen.

All four decks are different archetypes, but all play very explosively and can win out of no where.


Fear, Faith, and Fury

Commander / EDH unstable_anomaly

SCORE: 5 | 395 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER


This is a classic Kaalia build focusing on hitting as hard and fast as possible. Lots of draw to keep things going, and a few different ways to play into the long game if necessary. Mid to high powered casual build with no infinite loops or game winning combos that uses combat damage to win the game.



This is a artificer deck that focuses on overwhelming our opponents with shear value and then beating them to death with massive creatures in traditional Boros fashion. High powered casual deck with many overlapping synergies to win the game.


The Damned and the Discarded

Commander / EDH unstable_anomaly

SCORE: 4 | 301 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS


This is a rakdos wheels deck that generates huge amounts of value by taking advantage of wheel effects and all the various payoffs these colors have to offer. This deck hits incredibly hard and fast and may be my most powerful deck I own outside of my cEDH and combo builds. High powered casual build that wins by pinging our opponents to death with draw and discard triggers.


The Syndicate's Sacrifice

Commander / EDH unstable_anomaly

SCORE: 3 | 324 VIEWS


Standard Teysa Karlov build that wins through infinite aristocrat loops (pining our opponents to death) or just by simply doing the same thing without looping combos. Mid to high power casual build.
