Aspiring spike started using it in his rakdos modern deck. Lots of people use it and shinka since it is almost free to run over a basic land.


CraigArndt

Not 100% free because Blood Moon is still very much a thing in modern. But shouldn’t be a problem in Rakdos because you should be building your mana to work with your OWN Blood Moons


Luxypoo

Lurrus >>> Moon in that particular deck


Healthy-Piece-3593

Rakdos doesn’t have to play blood moon, spike’s list doesn’t. Also, I said ‘almost free’ for blood moon.


CraigArndt

That’s fair. But blood moon is worth bringing up for anyone thinking of running Shinzo because a heavy played meta card that can straight up lock a deck out of non-red colors if you’re not prepared for it is not really “almost free”. And while spike is a very talented deck builder and has probably compensated for it. others might not have thought of it especially if they don’t run blood moon in their deck.

I'm happy if my opponent is playing bloodmoon on turn 3 vs my rakdos deck.


JoblessJester

Ah, I see. Thank you.

Five mana vs two mana, Rogue’s passage isn’t better enough to justify costing so much more in most situations


JoblessJester

If someone has black or artifact creatures Shizo won't work. Rogue's guarantees there's no blocking whatsoever. Cost wise yea, Shizo is awesome but, I guess I'd be fine paying the extra mana to guarantee a hit.


Martial_facts

If you can tap 6 mana in modern why would you do that and not play a primeval Titan? Also in a deck with heavy r/b colour requirements it can prevent you casting on curve


LoginBranchOut

It spiked because modern and the supply is relatively low nobody plays rogues passage in modern.


JoblessJester

Thats good. I was using it for a commander deck. But I might put it in a different commander or trade it for other stuff I need to some modern player.

It's a good land that should be in any commander deck with black were your commander wants to attack. That and I believe there was a modern deck with it and ragavan. But I don't play modern anymore so could be wrong.


Twingemios

Because if you run 1 copy it’s basically a basic swamp and that it only costs 2 mana instead of 5 (you count the land itself)


mtgistonsoffun

Rogues passage costing 5 mana to activate makes it pretty useless in most modern (or high powered commander) decks.


GossamerGlenn

Ragavan decks basically and not sure who started it but may have been aspiringspike as mentioned but the red one is also being used


Apellosine

In RB Rock decks it buffs Ragavan, Kroxa and Tourach so you're definitely running a decent number of legends for the very minor downsides to melt away.
