How would you build it.

I have been messing around with Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats ( deck link here --> Deadshot ) for a while now and I dont know if I've found all the cards that fit the deck criteria. Looking for some insight. The idea is simple. Basically I want to drop the Jericho missile on my opponents.

jericho missile

Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats gives all my creatures deathtouch. So all I have to do is a single point of damage to a creature to kill it. The best example of this is dropping Goblin Chainwhirler after Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats.

So I've played around with it. I've tried to build dragons only. Because dragons deal damage to all non fliers all the time. So that was a viable strategy. And I've tried vampires but that's not really anything impressive. The hardest thing to figure out is what works best for Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats, and what creatures that dont lean into the 1 point of deathtouch damage that I should include. Especially ones that are rogues, wizards, warriors, and clerics.

I did finally build something I liked but I'm not totally satisfied with this build. Its missing something. It feels clunky. So I'm asking the community for help. Also if anyone knows me. I love vampires and rakdos.

So, I actually think you're going in the right direction with the pings. Though most of the good pingers are going to be shamans.

Now, for the shameless plug. I actually put a list together :) maybe you can get some ideas from it. Definitely think Hellrider is going to be an mvp in any build for this guy though.
