Creature — Vampire
When Carrier Thrall dies, create a 1/1 colorless Eldrazi Scion creature token. It has "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool."
Carrier Thrall Discussion

Guys, I think he wants to sac those creatures to other effects, since he said no self-sacrificing creatures, so Thrulls are just spinning wheels. Unfortunately, the effect OP is looking for is pretty unusual, as evidenced by Su-Chi 's $50 price tag (screw the Reserved List). The best you're going to do outside the original examples is treasure and scion makers like Dire Fleet Hoarder , Gleaming Barrier , Pitiless Plunderer , and Carrier Thrall . That's why most people choose to make tokens and sac them for mana through an intermediary like Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar , etc. get the mana through death-matters triggers on cards like Black Market and Pitiless Plunderer .

My idea is to make all of the above as 30 card Modern legal decks, where you take any two pieces and combine them before the game starts to make a full 60 card deck. Each 30 card deck will also have a "champion" - a mythic or rare that is the lynchpin - while the rest of the cards are commons or uncommons. For example, BR aristocrats:
This can be combined with say, RW Vehicle aggro:
1 Depala, Pilot Exemplar - the champion
4 Veteran Motorist
2 Renegade Freighter
2 Untethered Express
2 Consulate Dreadnought
1 Aeronaut Admiral
2 Speedway Fanatic
1 Caught in the Brights
2 Court Homunculus
You can easily combine the two to make a capable deck. Keep going for the other deck archetypes.
What this idea does is provide a mini-game for more experienced players and variety of gameplay, while less experienced ones get a view of deckbuilding and a form of "smash-up" that is more fun than simply picking up a ready deck. If you want to really spice it up, add some loose cards players can switch in between games - a sort of a sideboard.
For example, with 10 30-card decks, you have 90 combinations.

Just playtested a couple hands and I got Demon of Death's Gate a few Carrier Thrall...that's a powerful play! Sac those and put out a huge creature and still get tokens afterwards. If you had a Blood Artist out too that's a 6 point life swing on top of it. Fun stuff.

I am trying to build a casual sacrifice/demon deck.
I need help trimming the deck and keeping the deck in it's "theme", while it still works and it's fun.
Any help appreciated :)

qwertyking Yeah, I was thinking about adding a sac engine of some kind, but apart from the Mortician Beetle and Quest for the Gravelord which completes easily anyway, I'm not really that dependant on sacrificing early on. I've changed Butcher Ghoul to Carrier Thrall for some additional easy sacrificing and to help mitigate land destruction from Smallpox and to help cast Desecration Demon more easily.

Thank's a lot Aiding! I realy ovelooked that part "any permanent"...So I will definitaly put in Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds. And I will think about putting in "scions" - stuff like: Blisterpod, Carrier Thrall and Pawn of Ulamog. This will bring my deck to another level.

It's been a while since I worked on this deck and just recently dusted off the tappedout list. I initially didn't include Mikaeus because he was fairly expensive and I didn't know how much I wanted to do with Undying.
As for the land-searchers, when I threw this together I was more concerned with getting colors, that's why I didn't list Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo etc. as they produce colorless mana mostly. I've been thinking about picking this up again, so I'll review everything again.
The Altars might be very nice to get more mana, but Scorpio's ability can get pretty expensive so I don't think we can churn out an infinite combo with it very easily.. I think it would work if you happened to have something like Pitiless Plunderer as well, with Ashnod's Altar you'd get , and could use the treasure token for at least one of the required /. I don't think it can go infinite, but you can combo as long as there are creatures on the board. Probably, seeing as we have quite a lot of other -1/-1 effects that might kill stuff, as long as we somehow get colored mana from their death...
Bog Initiate would allow you to filter the colorless mana into colored mana.
So it might be possible to go infinite, but you'd need a lot of cards in play to combo off. Sac outlet for mana, treasure or eldrazi tokens for colors, revival though undying or pesist..
