Haha.

Then again, Pojo in the Gauntlet video games breathed fire and attacked people. In all of the Zelda games, attacking chickens elicits major repercussions (in the form of flocks of chickens attacking you). Furthermore, even though Scooby-Doo and Shaggy always called themselves chickens, they usually caught the bad guy while Fred, Velma, and Daphne watched from the sidelines (making Scooby and Shaggy the bravest of the lot).

You know, I think I've seen you post this pic before somewhere...I don't know where though.

Changes I'm going to make at this time by removing the cards I pointed out before:

+ Dread Cacodemon
+ Blasphemous Act
+ Hero's Downfall
+ Stormbreath Dragon
+ Leyline of the Void
+ Withered Wretch

3 pieces of removal, new dragon, and more graveyard removal.

I'd cut Moltensteel. Flameblast is removal (if conditional), whereas MS is just a beater.

Moltensteel was actually my second thought. It does come down to that, and most likely I'm going to want the removal.

Grr. I ran across Rimescale last night while finding cards for other decks (conveniently well after I had finished making the previous changes) and went, "Dragon? In Red? Snow creature?! Needs Snow MANA?!!! $#@*#\&!!"

I ran rimescale in my karrthus deck with all snow lands rather than standard basics. You would be suprised just how useless his ability can be tbh, what with the wraths, spot removal and protection equipment he either freezes a thing or two (at the cost of you doing other interesting stuff) or just dies before becoming relevant. I love the thing and the artwork is among my favourite as a dragon collector, but he just always seems to get cut for something better like hellkite tyrant, broodmother, broodmate, dragon mage, moonveil, stormbreath, thundermaw etc etc the list goes on. I hope he works for you i really do, but don't be suprised when its just a 5/5 flyer that dies before doing any freezing :-(

Dragons--dying to wrath effects before doing anything useful since the format was called Elder Dragon Highlander. :P

EDIT: this is Rakdos, I'm allowed to be a little affluent and insane with the deck's resources!

Possibly, but it still requires replacing a card. If Dragon Tyrant turns out to be a bad match for the deck, I'll probably be pulling it and switching. I'm getting to the point where there's not a whole lot of options to take out without really disrupting something within the deck.

Also, I don't own a Knollspine Dragon. It helps to have one to consider putting it in. :wink:

I like Heartless Hidetsugu for Rakdos. Why enable Rakdos with 1 damage when you can kill everyone halfway? Mostly I just like the card.

Ancient Hellkite is another option for removal that can hit multiple targets in one turn.
The downside is you need all red mana for it.

Thundermaw Hellkite is another card worth considering. It gives you an opening for all your dragons to hit on the turn it comes in.

Sarkhan the Mad seem like a flavorful fit too.
