Oops all damage!

That right there is the motto of the baddest and raddest commanders mono red has ever seen: Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh and Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar. It's gonna take a lot to convince me that these partners are not meant for one another. These two go together like peanut butter and jelly, cards and sleeves, or fists and punching!

Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh is the perfect storm for a mono-red commander: he has a 0 casting cost and some pretty gnarly keywords.

Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar on the other hand is the perfect sideline supporting partner: he cheers Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh on, distributing damage to everyone else while his friend slices and dices. This Commander deck is truly sublime because even though it has two generals, all you really need is one to kill everyone.

Deck Goals

When building this deck, I wanted to aim for something budget-friendly (compared to my many previous deck techs). Why? Well, Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh and Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar are uncommon legendaries extraordinary power. You don't need rares or mythics to have a powerful deck. It was their rarity (or lack thereof) that inspired me to build an incredibly potent Commander deck that was both powerful and cost-effective.

This week's deck tech budget was set at $100 and not a penny more. After many cuts and compromises, chat and I were able to make something truly heinous while bringing the cost down to a crisp $82.

The deck's game-winning strategy? Simple. Just equip Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh with enough artifacts and Auras, swing at one person, and let Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar snipe everyone else.

Equipment

Let's talk metal, baby. Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh and Equipment seem to go hand in hand. Not only is he carrying a sword in his art (we already have a flavor win folks), but his three keywords make him devastating early game. While we aren't necessarily a keyword soup deck (we need lots of buffs rather than words), there are still many potent artifacts in this deck that enhance our Kobold's lethal tendencies.

The decks's first and probably most nauseating Equipment is Grafted Exoskeleton. While Infect is going to cause a few moans and groans, rest assured they will be worth it here. When equipped to Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh this will give him +2/+2, leaving your combat target at an eight-turn clock. However, with Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar out, this clock is extended to everyone.

Next we have the newly printed Commander's Plate. This one's doozy in this deck. Why? Because we're mono-red, babyyyyy! While this is one of the pricier pieces in our brew, it remained for one very good reason: evasion. Blockers will build up over time, however having protection from white, blue, black, and green is incredibly potent.

Do you want an unblockable commander without having to find your Rogue's Passage? Then worry not, my darling deck builder, for I have just the solution for you: Trailblazer's Boots.

More often than not, opponents will be playing their flashy, exciting nonbasic lands. Sure, they can do cool stuff like ping us for damage or tap for more than one color. However, this matters not to Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh and Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar. Every battlefield is meant to be traversed, and every face is meant to be slapped.

Lastly, let's talk about an Equipment that is criminally underplayed and underpriced.

In mono-colored decks, this artifact shines. Thankfully, we are just the deck for it. In today's particular brew, we run 30 basic Mountains. After one is imprinted, we run the possibility of buffing Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh to +29/+29 all on our own. While the likelihood of this is low, it really looks good in my article to say that we have a 29/30 with a pet that deals 29 damage to each other opponent, right?

Auras

This deck may only run three Auras, however, don't let this minimal number deceive you. They are just as powerful as our Equipment, if not more so.

Our first two are Claws of Valakut and Granite Grip. With these two pieces in our deck it is key that we run as many Mountains as we can. If we can't hit our key buffing Equipment, then these Auras are able to deal a hefty chunk of damage in a pinch.

Our third and final aura is a bit more cost intensive in terms of mana: Dragon Mantle. While it doesn't buff based on how many Mountains we run, we can still sink as much mana as we can generate into it in order to turn out zero into a hero (get it, 'cause he has a converted mana cost of 0?).

Card Advantage

One of red's biggest weaknesses is card advantage. Cheap commanders are fun and all, but when our hands are empty or our mana is running dry, we run out of gas and our commanders start to weaken up a bit. Red card draw can be pretty scary, mostly because of all the drawbacks. However, some card draw is better than no card draw, and thankfully we have some neat ways of sneaking it into this deck.

To start off, of course we have to run some of red's most infamous forms of card draw: Tormenting Voice, Faithless Looting, and Thrill of Possibility. However, we have another red way to get the cards we truly need: Experimental Frenzy.

Once a Standard powerhouse, this card has finally retired to Commander stardom. With this bad boy we can look at and play cards from the top of our library. While, yes, there is a slight drawback, we can get rid of the enchantment anytime we so please, making it very helpful in our quest for that sweet, sweet card advantage.

Another "top of the library" piece comes in the form of an Equipment: Explorer's Scope. This is our way of ramping. Lands on the top come into play tapped. Who needs Cultivate?

This deck is not done with advantage-generating Equipment just yet. We still have two potent pieces to knock out: Mask of Memory and Rogue's Gloves. Slap these on Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh to maximize the value we get out of our combat steps. Sure, damage to everyone is nice. But you know what's nicer than damage? Consistent card draw in a color that desperately needs it.

"Oops, I Win"

This was my actual reaction to a play I made with this deck live on my stream, Filthy Casuals. I'll elaborate.

Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar interacts with damage doublers and triplers in a very broken way, because when it causes a commander to deal noncombat damage, that counts as an all-new damage source to be multiplied. Say we have Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh and Kediss out alongside Fiery Emancipation. Rograkh is a 10/10. We move to combat and deal 30 damage to an opponent. Fiery Emancipation sees Kediss' ability as a new source, thus tripling it again for 90 damage to our other opponents.

The same interaction works with Dictate of the Twin Gods and Furnace of Rath. Disgusting, right?

This Combo Is $11?!

Whenever a deck is Equipment-heavy, odds are you will find this neat little combo. It is infamous, chilling, and only costs $11.

Helm of the Host makes up the majority of this combo's cost, and with good reason. Not only does it do wonders with Godo, Bandit Warlord, but we can attach it to Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar to make more of him, thus increasing the amount of damage on the board. However, we aren't in this section to talk about Kediss. We're here to talk about what he does with Godo.

When Helm of the Host is attached to Godo, Bandit Warlord, we can make a nonlegendary Godo token with haste when we move to combat. If we attack with this hasty token, we will then have an extra combat step. This will then trigger Helm of the Host, thus creating infinite Godo tokens and infinite combat steps. Infinite combat steps means we can kill some blockers and make contact with Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh. Regardless, everyone's gonna get smacked in the face for a lot of damage.

"Budget" Doesn't Equal "Bad"

While most of the decks I brew for this series don't consider price, I wanted to take a moment to showcase a deck that can be high in power level without costing hundreds of dollars. Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh and Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar prove you can win in Commander without breaking the bank.

Happy brewing, deck builders!
