Rakdos Arcanist – Budget Historic Deck

Best-of-One (BO1)


  • 4 Thoughtseize: one of the safest crafts in Historic, needed for every Black sideboard and many maindecks.
  • 4 Dreadhorde Arcanist: the pillar this whole deck stands on, necessary for this archetype.
  • 1 Lurrus of the Dream-Den: A fantastic value card and free inclusion that benefits the deck significantly, and only requires one rare wildcard.
