I enjoy collecting cards anywhere from ABU to Dungeons & Dragons; and I enjoy playing older formats such as Vintage and Modern. Since 2020 I've focused a lot on EDH, and those are the decks I'm most often brewing up.

Most of the decks listed within my profile are upgraded pre-cons, janky home brews, or ideas inspired from other players - all containing cards I love from Magic's history. The ones I built myself are listed as such.

I appreciate all and any constructive feedback, and suggestions as my Magic hobby continues on.

Happy tapping!

How do you think Mirror Box would run in this build?

This looks awesome, and I really enjoyed reading the primer explaining the deck build and mechanics.

Looking at the deck list of the C17 pre-con, it looks like there's a good chunk of cards in both that list and yours. I may just have to see if I can upgrade it in the same fashion as you have.

Thanks again for the work you put into this and sharing with the community!

JosephStardust glad to hear your deck is working out! Avatar of Discord is such a beautiful card.

As I work to improve my own Rakdos EDH deck, I'll keep ya posted on what I learn and see if it helps you out as well.

Thanks for the comment!

This is a nice looking build, and I'm curious to hear how it runs. You might have trouble getting some of those 5+ CMC cards onto the battlefield, however. I'd recommend running Dark Ritual, Seething Song or Jeska's Will for some ramp. Or you can toss in Cabal Coffers or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in if you have them.

The biggest issue I've had using Rakdos, group slug decks is the amount of attention they get. I have a build using Kaervek as the commander, and it does a good job of speeding up the games. I'd love to hear your comments/suggestions on it!

I like what you have going here - which appears to be some upgrades to the 2017 pre-con. I also did this and can tell you that upgrading the lands is a game-changer in regards to putting vampires onto the battlefield quicker. But as you know, lands are expensive.

Some cheaper upgrades I'd recommend are: Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord, Embercleave, Vanquisher's Banner and Bontu's Monument. I threw those in my upgraded deck and they're very useful.

Here's a link to mine if you'd like to peek at it for ideas. Again, ignore the price tag because I upgrade all of the lands with cards I already owned.

Update!

In: Fireball

Out: Blasphemous Act

I really don't like Blasphemous Act in this deck, and I think if I draw/tutor into a combo where I have Fireball, Jeska's Will, Cabal Coffers or Seething Song, I can take someone out. Especially if a 2x damage multiplier is on the battle field. Not to mention, how great would it feel to take someone out with one of Magic's original Sorcery! :)

Update!

Out: Hero's Downfall

In: Murderous Rider

I think more cheap creatures is needed for this deck, just to protect my own life total. The instant adventure of Murderous Rider has the same effect and costs the same as Hero's Downfall, but then turns into a creature with lifelink.

Update!

Out: Burning Earth

In: Chandra, Torch of Defiance

In my playgroup, I don't think Burning Earth will work well enough. Also, unless I swap in more basic lands, it will likely do more damage to me than anyone else! Chandra, Torch of Defiance has so much versatility for 4 CMC - mana ramp, card draw, and group slug effects. I will play test it and see how it goes.

Update!

Out: Mox Diamond

In: Wheel of Fortune

Honestly not even sure why I put Mox Diamond in this deck - possibly due to concerns of the mana ramp. The mana situation was actually very decent in the 4x playing this deck recently, and I played a Wheel of Fortune will helped me out a lot. I think it will be fun to have in the deck.

Update!

In: 1. Time of Ice

Out: 1. Zagoth Crystal

I stumbled upon Time of Ice when going through some bulk commons and uncommons and not only LOVE the artwork on it but also think that it can be pretty tricky in the sense of shutting down a large threat and then creating a semi- board wipe on turn 3 of the saga. We'll see how it plays out!

Haha, I love. For $15 this is so worth making just to have fun with it.
