Quote from Crimson Lancer »I guess I should work out a Primer late this week; I've taken the deck to 13th at Regionals, 145th at GP OKC, and 4-0 most of my local events with it.
Goblin Lore is used because Reunion is the worst top-deck with an empty hand of all time, and we're running an empty hand fairly often. Lore replaces itself, digs deep, and instantly enables a free Hollow One. In my testing, it's by far the better card.
I'll see about coming up with a Primer in a few days!
Quote from MagicMat »I'm going to build this deck starting with a budget mono-red version, but I don't know if it's better with Prized Amalgam, Hellspark Elemental, Scourge Devil and more discard spells or similar to RB version but with only Mountains and something like Bloodrage Brawler instead of Gurmag Angler to trigger Flamewake Phoenix's ferocious. Advices?
Quote from megatog201 »Thats first this's sb is total garbage. Yall can do so much better IMO.
Other than that they both look good. Probably lean slightly to the rakdos deck though.
Quote from NuBlkAu »yo yo... been looking for a primer for this... I believe im the only person using edge of autumn? ... its a free cycler, flood protection, lets you be fast, fill up your graveyard quick and not exile things like looting/flamewake/bloodghast when casting gurmag. Its often sideboarded out except when We need to be fastfastfast... 4 felt excessive because we often only want to cycle one in a match. makes more intentional t1 hollow one broken hands ( dont sac your land if its your only land (including hand) unless youre gonna get like 2 or 3 hollow ones) takes practice, but feels like a missing link in the deck to me
Quote from StumbleMuse »This deck seems wacky powerful, and like a deck that will be "on the rise" in the months ahead.
If you look at my Decks portion of my profile, you can see my list if your are interested. I've built this in the last week after seeing SaffronOlive's take on the deck and have been fascinated by it...
Sometimes, the deck is a smelly donkey that you want to drop-kick, but that's rare. I had a weird situation playing last night (due to Godly draw and even better luck with random discard) where I had THREE Hollow Ones on the board on the first term, and a bunch of correlating Bloodghasts and Amalgams by turn 2... Nuts, man... Absolute nuts.
That might even beat a "Vintage" deck on occasion.
The go-to cards have skyrocketed in price over the last two weeks. This deck will be a THING, I think... And I'm really glad to have pooled the necessary cards to build it.
It's Way Fun too...
Quote from Raalic »Been testing a Rakdos list on Cockatrice, and I am impressed with the potential of the deck. I will say that it still seems a little inconsistent, but I think it's partly because I'm not experienced with the deck. How aggressively do you guys mulligan for a strong turn 1 play? I find that the power level of the deck drops by orders of magnitude when at least one Hollow One doesn't come down on turn 1 or turn 2.
