Aclazotz Joins Rakdos Beatdown as a Top-End Threat

image image image

Introduction

This is the fifth version of my Rakdos Beatdown deck deploying the best creatures and spells of the Standard format, with a focus on providing haste to big flying creatures, such as Archfiend of the Drossimage and Aclazotz, Deepest Betrayal // Temple of the Deadimage, with Reckless Stormseeker // Storm-Charged Slasherimage, quickly dealing huge amounts of unblockable damage to the opponent.

In this version, I removed Gix, Yawgmoth Praetorimage from the deck and added Aclazotz, Deepest Betrayal // Temple of the Deadimage. The deck is essentially the same as Rakdos Haste Flyer Beatdown v2 but Bonehoard Dracosaurimage replaced with Aclazotz, Deepest Betrayal // Temple of the Deadimage and somewhat changed mana base. The removal of Bonehoard Dracosaurimage allows one to play with just 1 Mountain, because no card requires two red mana. I also changed Mishra's Foundryimage into Mirreximage, which can help you casting your spells the turn it enters the battlefield. It's also great for generating a multitude of tokens in the late game.

Format

  • The deck is for the Standard format with Murders at Karlov Manor being the last legal set.
  • The deck is probably Tier 1 or Tier 1.5 caliber.
  • The deck can be played in both Bo1 and Bo3.
  • The deck is pretty fast, and thus it's suitable for quickly grinding a large number of wins in the MTG Arena ladder.

This is my own brew.
