Individually, black and red are strong colors in Alchemy. They’re home to many of the best removal spells in the format. Additionally, black has discard spells to shred slower decks, while red has threats which can unload damage hard and fast. As such, Rakdos is a somewhat familiar color combination in Alchemy. Vampire and Dragon tribal decks exist in Rakdos, while you can also build sacrifice decks based around Sanguine Brushstroke. But the deck I’ll be covering today sets aside all of these dedicated synergies in exchange for a clean game plan focused on individual card quality.
