Okay so I'm new to Duel Commander specifically. I've played plenty of regular EDH, especially with my Rafiq of the Many Exalted Aggro deck, and I found that Duels would be an awesome variant to explore. I just need help with how or if this deck can be converted to be effective 1v1.

So not a lot of 1v1 action here but if you go to http://duelcommander.com/ you will find more info. Just as a way to help are you wanting to be cutthroat or a more casual experience? Rafiq can just win out of no where so he is generally thought of as cutthroat, especially as a voltron general... but he doesn't have to be.

With perfect mana, reasonable removal, disruption, and card advantage, we're back to pitchforks and torches. And it's about to get worse for those who do not enjoy the game as Richard Garfield intended, playing as few win conditions as possible and prompting concession after all hopes (and spells) are lost. - Shaheen Soorani

Yeah I posted this in the "Decklists" forums before and people were commenting a lot about how he doesn't fit a funtime deck. Initially it was meant for a funtime multiplayer casual, (with things like Join Forces cards and whatnot) but slowly it ended up transforming into being more cutthroat because I did start winning out of nowhere even with a heavy funtime theme. So yeah, that's why I thought it would be flavourful and beneficial to make it into a duel commander.

I actually enjoy not using Rafiq as a Voltron Commander, he's more of a Support/Tank maker. I like making even a Phantom Warrior a game ender. Out of no where I guess eh? :D So yeah cutthroat but not Voltron. I only lean on that for a desperation win con.

EDIT: Updated decklist to current.

Check out MTGTop8 for Rafiq lists. They post Duel Commander lists from around the world, mainly from Europe, and it pretty much sets the metagame as I do not know of any other site that posts DC lists so frequently.

Here are the most recent two lists from their site:

http://www.mtgtop8.com/event?e=11226&d=263759&f=EDH

http://www.mtgtop8.com/event?e=10963&d=262408&f=EDH

Keep in mind that the DC format is pretty aggressive and a much different animal from the US version.
