Abyssal Persecutor Discussion

thegoldentoast on Free Kittens!

Just wanted to point out giving the opponent Abyssal Persecutor and Act of Treason are your only defensive cards. Your combos take some time to hit off, so I would consider running more things to prevent yourself from loosing to an aggro deck between turns 4-6. (most aggro and mid range decks can kill you in this range if you have no blockers)

Yo, I'm thinking about an idea. It has some holes but if it works it will be HILARIOUS. 1) something that gives you hexproof, 2) Bazaar Trader and Abyssal Persecutor.

I have no idea what would give me hexproof or how, and you know what, I don't care. I don't know if I would run this but if it works out it would be so damn fun.

Report from last FNM, went 2:1:
Match 1 against dredge: First game was fast and i did almost nothing. Second game was much better thanks to sideboarding. I managed to remove some important stuff with Tormod's Crypt and buy some time, land Night of Souls' Betrayal shutting down Bloodghast and Narcomoeba. But still Prized Amalgam and Conflagrate was enough to kill me. I desperately needed some other graveyard removal. But Bojuka Bog didn't show up at all and i died with Nihil Spellbomb sitting on the top of my library.
Match 2 against another dredge: First game was straightforward, i bought some time thanks to Gifted Aetherborn, but that was all, no Bojuka Bog, my only chance to win before sideboarding. Second game i won because of board sweeper followed up by graveyard removal, Mutilate and Nihil Spellbomb. Used Bojuka Bog and lifelink before it to buy some time. Game was very long, in the end i had a lot of swamps and Lashwrithe was really powerfull and attached to lifelink creature the game was over. I survived the thanks to Arguel's Blood Fast. Draw cards at the end of opponent's turn and immediately transform on your upkeep, than attach Lashwrithe to anything and job is done. Third game was similar to second, lifegain to stay in game long enough to wreck opponent's graveyard and win because of extremely powerfull Lashwrithe.
Match 3 against storm: Opponent began. I discarded two cards from opponent's hand on turn 1 and turn 2. On turn 4 i was on healthy 27 lifes. Next i was killed by 29 Grapeshots :). Before sideboard discard is my only chance, but still i'm weak against combo. Second game after sideboarding: turn 3 Lost Legacy on Grapeshot with Night of Souls' Betrayal in hand. On his turn 3 with Baral, Chief of Compliance he made something like 100 goblins thanks to Empty the Warrens. On my next turn i landed Night of Souls' Betrayal (he had no open mana, so it was safe) and scooped. Game 3 was very similar to game 2, but no so fast. There were two turns, where i was just hoping (Lost Legacy was Remanded), but once i exiled all his grapeshots and had sweeper in hand i was calm.

Notes: Victim of Night is good budget removal for monoblack, but useless against dredge (Prized Amalgam and Bloodghast). Discard also useless against dredge, so before sideboarding i have almost no chance to win.Against storm, sideboard out all spot removal and let them cast Baral, Chief of Compliance or Goblin Electromancer and handle their wincons. They have usually one before sideboard but two after sideboard. Remember Empty the Warrens! But Empty the Warrens can be handled on sorcery speed on your turn, so have all sweepers in your deck. Be careful of Remand . Lashwrithe scales really good as game goes on. Great synergy with Arguel's Blood Fast and Rite of Consumption. In one game with 7 mana i played Abyssal Persecutor attached Lashwrithe for 2 mana and 2 lifes and immediatelly sac it to Rite of Consumption. 26 lifes swing in total:)

You know what works really well with Smallpox? Abyssal Persecutor. It gives much more value to Pox late game. Not to mention a 6/6 Flying Trampler in modern is no joke.

Bile Blight is in consideration and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is out of money range. But i made some changes due to acquiring second Inquisition of Kozilek.Also trying one Rite of Consumption in place of fourth Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Similar in terms of life drain, but lowers mana curve a bit and kills my Abyssal Persecutor even when countered. Plus together with Lashwrithe should be pretty powerfull. Will see how it works.

GodRedSands on Duelist's Nightmare - Demon Edition (40$)

What I basically wanted for this deck is to keep the Gimmick Theme of Demons in the deck while still being in a budget range. Its a remake of one of my old decks to which the general cmc is very small.

20 lands in a 60 card-based deck is more than enough for me since the heavy hitters only need to come out one at a time a turn. I don't need to fill up my board with multiple copies of Abyssal Persecutor since the opponent will more likely have a hard time dealing with it early on.

Yes I admit that the deck doesn't use a super competetive mechanic, but its pretty satisfying when all is done. Its kind of hard to find a deck that mostly uses only demons that don't cost so much which possess uncomfortable abilities. And to be able to bend those abilities to your advantage is mostly satisfying.

If this weren't really demon themed or budget, I'd absolutely use Geralf's Messenger and Gray Merchant of Asphodel as they run a better mechanic for my sacrifice conditions and with stackable returns like Geralf's own ability and Grim return. Or even simply with the Merchant which would decimate a target whilst healing up my potentially low lifepoints.

you might think that Blinkmoth Well isn't very good, but a buddy of mine plays a super dangerous deck that revolves around Bazaar Trader to give you cards like Abyssal Persecutor, Demonic Pact (he uses the good effects then gives it to you), or Immortal Coil before you have anything in your graveyard.
