2nd video of our run with FMira's Rakdos Burn list, we ended this run 4-2 by the way. Izzet Phoenixes / Drakes is about 60% of games once you get past 1/2 wins so prepare accordingly!

Adam dvolak - It's a massive responsibility in Ravnica. It's like being the administrator for the city and dealing with guild to guild disputes n request n stuff. A very demanding position. The planeswalker Jace Beleren has been the guildpact for a while now, and folk aren't too happy because the guildpact position is swamped with constant work and he's being really selfish and planeswalking away to save the multiverse and shit.

Been having a lot of fun with this list. Pretty neat that this is already decent without any Rakdos support

+Exe Calibur I know about Vraska and Ral. But what is living guildpact? It's like leader of all guilds or anything like that?
Exe Calibur (1 month ago)
+Adam Dvořák Vraska for Golgari and Ral for Izzet, Jace is the living guild-pact still. Aside from these I am unaware if any other planeswalker will become a leader or leaders becoming a planeswalker.
Adam Dvořák (1 month ago)
+Exe Calibur Are there another planeswalker guild leaders?

Very good game! Like.
H. Comfy (19 days ago)
I have a genuine question. At 4:08 why didn’t you declare attackers, then played shock? If he chose to block you could have shocked the blocker and your 1/1’s damage would have gotten through, plus the Field trigger. It’s only a difference of 1 extra damage but I’m just curious.
Talguy21 (20 days ago)
Given I'm relatively new to Magic- but isn't this just Mono Red Aggro splashing Black for even more burn?
Cosminen (21 days ago)
Deck list? Could always put a link to the deck list to the descrition?

I played against this deck and it was disgusting
GrumpyThumper (21 days ago)
It wouldn't be a competitive event without facing Jeskai in your first match up.
What a beautiful little shock monkey.
EdFrankBlack (25 days ago)
Really cool deck. Might build it for kicks.
Noel Helsing Gonzalez (26 days ago)
um I'm kinda new to mtg arena. Is this a good deck to grind 7 wins bo1? I can make it but I want to make sure I'll be able to grind well with it.
Noel Helsing Gonzalez (24 days ago)
cant decide between this or dimir control or white
JakesFavorites (26 days ago)
3:20 He doesn't know you already have a SHock in hand, so he's going to preserve his Knight by denying you removal. But you already have another Shock in hand so he took free damage. He must be feeling bad right about now.
Gary C (28 days ago)
Is there a reason I can not find Sword-point diplomacy in my collections? Even when I show cards that I do not own.

fpantunes1 (29 days ago)
I can't really express myself towards this deck. I have played around 100games with, and I can't win THE BEST I have done was 4-3 in constructed event, and 2-2 in competitive constructed. I win around 50% of games! I watch all these rakdos burn videos and everyone does amazing, 5-0 runs and stuff, super deck yay ! I build it, I play with it a lot, I play magic for years (!) and the results I have are nothing like the videos that are posted. It's just insane.
MrGrimgate (29 days ago)
When you played Sword-Point Diplomacy you criticized the other player for taking three damage to remove your Shock but that Shock was already in your Graveyard. Your opponent took three to remove Sovereign's Bite, he basically took the damage he would have taken anyway but prevented you from gaining life from it, it was the right move.
Perhaps you aren't familiar with Sword-Point Diplomacy. The opponent selects cards to exile, not to put into the graveyard. That opponent exiled the Bite AND the Shock for 3 life each.
matthew parish (1 month ago)
I'm willing to watch a video of you reading magic lore or just telling the story of magic. You got a nice story telling voice.
Adam Ramistella (1 month ago)
Love the videos..... I am working on a grixis thousand year storm deck. Sword point diplomacy and the bite.... Would you recommend any auto adds?

Wouldn't evolving wilds be better than cinder Barrens? Since it filters your deck

As a mostly f2p beginner (to arena, not magic) is this deck worth crafting?
D&D Breakfast Club (1 month ago)
I have had great success with this deck so far. Yeah I think it is worth crafting, as it also beats a lot of mono red.

I cannot wait for rakdos to come out. Favorite guild hands down
Shinsua (1 month ago)
Of all the guilds, I feel like Azorius or Orzhov would be the easiest for Bolas to sink his claws into Dude tricked a whole plane into believing he was godking
JakesFavorites (26 days ago)
Well obviously he's going to use the Immortal Sun to take over Azorius, and go from there. Assert himself above the hieromancy and use the Gruul to start a citywide riot.

Krzysztof Olech (1 month ago)
dunno why did u throw away flame of keld for electrostatic field, i prefer playing both. flame III makes fields shoot for 3 dmg in adition to boosting the burn. shock +fields triger on flames III deals 7dmg instead of 3. instead i run 2 lavacoils and no firebrands... well... will be playing*. im a new mtga player and i dont have a lot of cards yet
Tyler Ellis (1 month ago)
To me, Rakdos defines chaotic evil. Gruul and Izzet better fit chaotic neutral.
Narowe (2 days ago)
Azorius - Lawful Good Boros - Chaotic Good Dimir - Lawful Neutral Izzet - Chaotic Neutral Golgari - Neutral Evil maybe? Simic - true neutral? I'm not too sure about them. Rakdos - Chaotic Evil Orzov - Lawful Evil Gruul - Chaotic Neutral Selesnya - Neutral Good I think that's how it would go. Gruul are difficult to categories and I know next to nothing about Simic except they're all about making big creatures bigger and better n stuff.
OP Malfit (13 days ago)
Let's sort all ten guilds this way 😍

Why weren't your double lands tapping when you put them down
Gregory Garrison (1 month ago)
He is also running 4 lands that strictly come into play tapped because we don't have the other half of the color pairs of shock lands yet. So yeah, like Steam vents but a different style of "Come into play untapped."
Kin-Tuck Ng (1 month ago)
+Gregory Garrison ok that's alright then, like steam vents, i thought it didn't tap for no reason
Gregory Garrison (1 month ago)
There are special dual lands that are typically mythic rarity that come in untapped when a condition is met. The ones he is using are called 'Check' Lands (The Red/Black one called Dragonskull Summit) and came out in the current standard during the Ixalan release. It doesn't come into play tapped if there is either a mountain or swamp in play (Which two depends on the colors of the check lands).

Do you think primal amulet would go well in this deck?

Bruh sword point diplomacy strong af
I just played a few matches of this and I must say, it's pretty fun, the basic "Tactical assault" mono white deck that you start out with is pretty good, I've won all my matches with it so far. I made a couple of changes to the original deck otherwise I played almost the exact deck I started my tutorial with, it was amazing, all the life gain was insane. I think I'll enjoy this arena thing. the only thing I'm sad about is that you can't buy singles, as far as I know, so you can't use the gold you earn to build yourself the perfect deck. you just need to buy the boosters and hope you get what you want.
TheSeth256 (1 month ago)
Wildcards are for crafting the cards you need for your deck,you should have some already by now :) Check in your collection!
H4rrysp94 (1 month ago)
Great content buddy, just out of curiosity why electrostatic field instead of guttersnipe??
Stephen Hardy (1 month ago)
I would imagine it was because it is a better blocker.
Irkhalu (1 month ago)
He mentioned it in the last video. Short version is 2 cmc vs 3 cmc. It fits better into the tempo he wants, and the 4 toughness puts it out of reach of just about all burn in standard.

Rackdos planeswalker? we can do a multiversal carnival!!!
Kashif Farees (1 month ago)
I think we'll just get some of Ajani's new superfriends as planeswalkers next set, unless it's been confirmed that shit doesn't go down until the third set. *Lore spoiler warning*(incase you care about lore spoilers and haven't paid attention to Hour of Devastation and Dominaria cards): I'm kinda hoping for an Orzhov Gideon, the black coming from the blackblade and the fact that he's in for an edgelord transformation after watching Oketra die and getting penetrated by Bolas and getting betrayed by Liliana after sticking up for her when literally everyone who knows her told him she's bad.
JakesFavorites (26 days ago)
They could make him white-red, he'd make a good white-red walker with combat-relevant magic and maybe extra combat as his minus or ult. An emblem with "you get an extra combat phase" would be really nice. I see him siding with the Boros as he did before.
7moonlightshadow7 (1 month ago)
Sadly that won't happen (at least not atm). There will be a total of 5 pro-Bolas Guilds and Wizards said that all of them will have a Planeswalker as a Leader. In this set its the Golgari and the Izzet, which means a color balanced Team would have to include the Orzhov, Gruul and Azorius, however Gideon will not be on Bolas team and with 3 Planeswalkers already coming I don't think they will push for even more in the same Set.
TheKIngOFNOOOBSS (1 month ago)
I have a question about new sets. What will happen, if certain other (the current ones) sets rotate out? Will there be a refund or smth like Wild Modus like in Hearthstone?
SprayFart84 (1 month ago)
In the first video the opponent had 2 knights of benalia. They triggered in the wrong order causing the +1/+1 to come out before the knight. You said that can be changed, how do you do that?
leimad13 (1 month ago)
He showed the options where you can do it. Basically don't let game to auto stack them and you can do it yourself.

Feel like jeskai is one of those under the radar decks that really shouldn't be because they are just so versatile they can change their entire archetype in best of 3's which makes it one of the most versatile decks in standard
Narowe (2 days ago)
There's a jeskai player in our club and it's insane versatile. Goes from control with drakes, to control/removal with all the board wipes and Teferi, to a card drawing monster with Niv Mizzet. Seriously I swear the guy must have a side board of three thousand cards. It's awesome what he's managed to achieve when it comes to how rounded his deck is.

All I need are the Diplomacies and I'm there! Thank you for the content! Can't wait to see the next builds.

You’ve made quite a few rakdos burn deck videos and I love it, it’s one of my favorite decks to watch and play, keep it up!
Merchant (1 month ago)
Yeah it's my favourite Standard Archetype really. Might work some more on my own Izzet Burn soon though.
CaptainLazer85 (1 month ago)
Also, Bolas is more of a chaotic manipulator (IE most of his cards are control card) and Rakdoes is more of a "hit hard and fast" kind of guild.
aliasKalessin (1 month ago)
I like to compare to Rakdos to a funny circus kind of thing... where fun is burning people and circus would be a menagerie of horror's and demons

Jan Šinkovec I believe a grixis counterburn build might be possible
Olly Thomas (1 month ago)
Around 4:30 you say you can order the triggers on the Benalia cards your opponent is playing. How would he have done that? I'm guessing it's something to do with full control mode?
Olly Thomas (1 month ago)
Nevermind, 13 minutes in and you explain it, cheers! :)
Markor (1 month ago)
About 3:10 : you can cast shock on the knights he was gonna summon so his win condition is to get boardcontrol and hit you with minions before you can burn him. not giving you shock was the right play, no need to just criticise the enemy bcs "take 3 damage instead of 2 face hurr durr" edit: nvm it was discussed 1 minute later
Business Cat Inc. (1 month ago)
I love this deck, I tried it in Constructed events and went 5-3, 7-1 and 7-2 so far.

I like this deck alot but having way more successes with just doing mono red

You know what...they should use Tibalt in the next set...but guess what they make him..wait for it! good!
Evan The Living Meme (1 month ago)
lol what am I thinking
Merchant (1 month ago)
Tibalt is a Tiefling addicted to torture, not sure he can be particularly good, he can be very Rakdosy though!
