Modern Rakdos Food by SPIDERSPACE
Figuring out the best Food variant has been a difficult challenge for deck builders. Today’s deck highlight follows a build a bit off the beaten path: Rakdos Food.
Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar, The Underworld Cookbook, Urza’s Saga and Ovalchase Daredevil is the powerful four-card package that defines the Food archetype. This past Saturday, MTGO user and streamer Spiderspace Top 8’d a Modern Challenge with this new take on the deck that plays Modern’s new dynamic duo: Dragon’s Rage Channeler and Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer.
Aside from just being two of the best cards in the format, these powerful one-drops synergize surprisingly well. Dragon’s Rage Channeler can surveil Ovalchase Daredevil into the graveyard, and Ragavan makes Treasure to help grow your Construct tokens. Additionally, having these creatures that are powerful by themselves allows you to be more resilient to sideboard cards.
I’m looking forward to seeing the evolution of this deck as there’s a lot of potential here. I’ll definitely keep an eye on the archetype and this build in particular.
