I see that you have a playset of the red izzet card "dynacharge", but how about adding some red boros cards or even some black golgari cards?

Well, what cards would you recommend for him to add?

Mizzium mortars, undercity plague, legion loyalist, wrecking ogre, stuff like that.

And what should he replace?

Thrill-kill assassin isn't the best, even in block, and madcap skills and dynacharge are good, but not quite playset worthy. I would remove 2 thrill-kill assassins and add 2 mizzium mortars, mabye add 1 wrecking ogre and a legion loyalist to replace a dynacharge and a madcap skills.

I like the conversation. I will make some changes but not to the extent of your reccomendations.

Thanks! Check out my mate Cthuhlubrew's set of budget block decks from this block. They're great.

I don't like Thrill-Kill, Lord of Riots or Rakdos' return in this deck. You lack any form of instant speed removal as well. My old Rakdos deck has nothing over 3 for about 90% of the deck, then 2 Exava and 2 Desecration Demon as finisher cards. Some good creatures to look at are Goreehouse Chainwalker, Hellhole Flailer and Desecration Demon. As for remoal, I've always loved Doomblade but something like Go for the Throat is also really good. Also, some cheap burn could be useful to put yourself just over the line. Lightning bolt is great but I still use Shock because of budget constraints at the time I built the deck.

Holy shit, i forgot hellhole flailer. Btw, this is a block deck, so go for the throat, doom blade and lightning bolt are not avaliable.

Yeah, it is limited in the cards he can add. For a block deck (not from zendikar block), this is epic.

2

I missed the block part. But Hellhole is MUCH better than most of the stuff here. I still reckon that you should run Desecration Demon over Rakdos.
Also, just check out the instant speed burn and removal from the block and try to use more of that.

True, but all instant speed removal from that block costs at least 4 except for ultimate price.

Thanks for the advice though. I appreciate it.

Use Ultimate Price then. Any cheap removal is better than none.

And I do mean more than 2 of them

Dreadbore is still better. It's a tier 2 card and ultimate price is tier 3.

2
Posted 15 February 2018 at 16:28

I agree. Ultimate price is inconsistent, so why run it consistently?

2

I dont agree with ultimate price but desecration demon seems better than lord of riots.

Not really, a lot of decks can deal with it every turn, especially decks from this block.

Unless they're running tokens, then no. Also, I've played my version since the deck was in standard, and trust me when I say people CAN'T deal with a Des Demon. Then again, I technically had access to a wider range of removal options.

Well, you're beloved ultimate price could take it out and couldnt take out rakdos.

Please. I personally prefer Doom Blade. My true love is intsnt-speed removal of ALL sorts. But, since you've decided to restrict yourself to a single block, this is all I can really suggest.

Listen man, dont say it like i've chosen to restrict myself, block is an actual format, that, especially on the vault, is quite underrepresented. If you'd like i could build a tier 1 rakdos speed kill modern deck.

Would it run desecration demon?

Try using the manabase from my hastedeck :D
(Reliant turn 4 beatdown that can survive lots of removal)

The "hastemare" deck is part of a series I made that I dubbed "Naked decks"
The concept is that you have a manacurve that can be applied to ANY deck simply by selecting your creatures to fit all of the manabase. The manabase is perfected to play out the deck in as many turn 5 kills as possible as long as your creatures have the same pow as their cost. (Evolution perfects my decks for me)

By using the same number of 1cc, 2cc, 3cc and 4cc and copying all the lands in my deck you will get a very fast deck no matter what you build (as long as the guidelines are followed) Exchange Mountains with plains and you can build a White weenie. Easy peasy :D
