Abyssal Persecutor Discussion

If you want bang for your buck there's Abyssal Persecutor which can get you 6 tokens for 5 mana with your commander, or can be used to do a little damage before sacrificing it, being that it has flying and can swing over some people. Then a good card for any black token deck with a decent mana supply is Champion of Stray Souls which has a repeatable effect.

Hey! Great idea! I love Phage and this deck. I could blind but do you have any other effects than Platinum Angel that make it so you don't lose when you cast Phage? Because if you cast Phage without something like that then you will lose the game. Try adding Stunning Reversal or Lich's Mastery. If you have some ways to give your creatures to other people maybe even throw in an Abyssal Persecutor. But I love the deck! keep it up!

You can format your commander in your mainboard like so:
1x Kenrith, the Returned King *CMDR*
Unless its your center theme, I wouldn't recommend Will of the Council as its not group-hug at all and its payoffs are either meh or extra turns (feels bad man).
I highly recommend Karona, False God. It can swing for 8 by itself and politicking its swings or protecting yourself from your own commander is a lot of fun. Scheming Symmetry, Wishclaw Talisman, Havoc Festival, and Captive Audience are also a lot of fun.

Love the idea of the deck, and can always respect a level of restraint when it comes to crafting 'ideal' setups in favour of the theme. I run a similar sort of idea (though wildly different in approach) in You cannot change your fate..., which aims to balance the board state by helping players that aren't doing so well while hindering ones that are doing well, with the end goal (can't exactly call it a win con since it doesn't let me win) being Divine Intervention. Obviously with that being B/W not everything will transition but I feel there's some ideas I think may work, though obviously you'll know best.
Firstly I've always enjoyed Forbidden Orchard. While you don't usually need much colour fixing in a 2-colour setup, it still helps if you can get it, and giving someone who isn't doing so well at least a chump blocker is just a nice thing to do (I don't know if you'd be able to work this into any deals with anyone, but again, you probably know best whether it's worth considering).
I don't know if you have enough means to get rid of it when you need to, but if you do, I feel Abyssal Persecutor could work wonders. There's no better deal you could make with someone who's about to lose than to keep them alive by your good graces. You'd need a way to ditch it if things go south, but if you have that, I think it could lead to some interesting situations.
Lastly, a card that I am not yet running in my deck but I have every intention of trying out, and I think would work even better for you is Head Games. While it'd be good in my deck for balancing out the game, I think the ability to give someone a hand with any combination of cards from their deck would be an insane amount of leverage in any deal you'd be looking to make. Otherwise you could always use it to give someone a hand full of lands if they don't hold up their end of a deal with you.
Let me know your thoughts!

Dark Ritual is the perfect tool for casting your demons earlier; I'd recommend fitting 3 or 4 in the deck. Heartless Summoning is something to consider as well. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled isn't very useful in this deck unless you run something that forces the opponent to search their library like Scheming Symmetry ; Some cheaper CMC (and $) demons to consider are Abyssal Persecutor and Desecration Demon . Rakdos, the Showstopper is also an OK one-sided board wipe as well. This could also open you up to cheaper CMC devils and Imps such as Rakdos Cackler or Vexing Devil . Overall I like the theme a lot and I think it has potential to be really disgusting.

If you go with more sacrificing Sengir Autocrat and Rite of Belzenlok create lots of tokens that can be sacrificed, but are too mana-intensive for their effect. Maybe Doomed Dissenter , Lazotep Reaver or Orzhov Enforcer ? Bitterblossom is too far out of budget range, but for a consistent stream of sacrificable creatures Dreadhorde Invasion but be worth it.

Why play Abyssal Persecutor if you have only two cards to get rid of him?
