Game #57: Rakdos, Lord of Riots
Location: Family Game Store
vs. Sol’Kanar the Swamp King; Rorix Bladewing
Demons and Dragons in Round 2 of the “Night of Insurrection and Obliteration”…
I start with 2 land and a Tormod’s Crypt and a Scroll of Grislebrand. Sol’Kanar has Sol (ka)Ring and puts a Darksteel something or other onto a Prototype Portal, and soon plays Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker. Rorix is doing stuff with artifacts and plays a Voltaic Key. I manage to get a Reassembling Skeleton out. Sol’Kanar casts Windfall, and I am happy because I have to get land, right? Nope I get 1. (this deck, while playing 40 lands, is always mana screwed).
Eventually I get a Stuffy Doll out aimed at Sol’Kanar, who has a Necropolis Regent. Then I finally can play Rakdos, but Rakdos dies to Inferno. I have a Pyrohemia out, but Nicol Bolas kills it. I terminate a gigantic Regent that swings at me, and replay Rakdos, which Bolas copies some how and then plays a cheap Mindleech Mass, which steals away my Disciple of Bolas (fitting… I suppose). I cast Boris Devilboon and another big creature for cheap, but that’s about all I can manage. I dont’ remember who won, but I think Rorix had a Hellkite Tyrant and 15 artifacts at one point…
About the Deck (Tapped out Someday)
This is somewhat Demons and Devils tribal, but not really, and lots things to make people lose life so that Rakdos can make things cheaper. Other than that, it’s just an Aggro deck.
