The Demon Rakdos has emerged from his lava pit in Murders at Karlov Manor to witness a performance worthy of his attention. Fitted with 6/6 stats and keywords like Flying and Trample, the Mythic Rare Demon forces opponents to sacrifice permanents at the beginning of your end step. And if they don’t, you get to draw two cards. 

Rakdos decks in Magic showcase the colors Black and Red. The color pair is most often known for sacrifice synergies. Rakdos, Patron of Chaos is not only a powerful commander in the MTG Commander format but a solid top-end boss that can finish off matches within a Black and Red Standard or Pioneer deck. And the Demon is a guaranteed bomb within the Limited format.
