Last week, I put together a Rakdos Midrange deck that was a culmination of all the lessons I’ve learned from deck building post-Modern Horizons 2. After a lot of playtesting in MTGO leagues, tuning the list and getting input from my Twitch chat, I ended the week with a 71-12 record.
I believe that this is going to be one of the most powerful and popular decks in Modern in the next few weeks. Many other talented players have already picked up the deck and have had tournament success over the past weekend. I’m excited to see how the deck evolves from here. With these kinds of midrange decks, there’s always going to be room for innovation, technology and unique approaches to deckbuilding. For the immediate future, I recommend this list that I hammered out in the MTGO trenches.
