Demigod of Revenge Discussion
2 months ago
I play Infernal Plunge, since if i played a creature before it, it will ramp as if it was 2x normal mana flares like Pyretic Ritual - there is only a single comparable effect in the format Vessel of Volatility but its a turn slower, and won't help me in powering out turn 2 Blood Moon, or Chandra, Torch of Defiance.
And its not problem if i "loose value" on my mana flare. Its there to do broken things, like not allowing my opponent to play magic (as they will only have red mana), play an early chandra they can't really interact with, that can run away with games, or simply as a way to cast Demigod of Revenge on turn 3, & reanimate copies from the grave. When i swing for 10+ damage i don't care that i sacrificed a cheap creature for it. Plus using the ritual on bloodghast is a 3 card combo, as i need a card to loot it into the grave on turn 1, the ghast itself, and the ritual - currently i only need the ritual and the creature.
I don't run Bloodghast becasue i am not content with surviving grave hate, i want to thrive against opponent who bring it in against me game 2. All my grave based cards (Demigod of Revenge & Flamewake Phoenix) are pretty decent even without the added value from the yard - the same cannot be said about Bloodghast. Its also weak, if i want to play the "ride chandra to victory" plan, as it can't block. Ghast is also much weaker if i don't run fetches - and as a mono red deck i don't plan to do so.
I tried Hour of Devastation, in the heyday of UW gideon tribal "control". Its extremely strong in many matchups, but its excruciatingly bad against decks with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben - which is pretty relevant at the moment.

The 4 spirit avatars are probably worth mentioning too, if hybrid mana still counts as mono-black. Deity of Scars, Ghastlord of Fugue, Demigod of Revenge, and Divinity of Pride. Excellent if you're trying to get heavy black devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Demigod in particular is brutal.

Bloodrage Brawler is a trap!
It dies to most 1 mana removal in the format, leavibg you 1 mana and 1 card short compared to the opposing player. Its a disaster waiting to happen.
Being mono red or budget is no reason to include the worst (eh... second worst, afetr Avatar of Woe) option in the deck. You have acess to cards like Grim Lavamancer for 5$ - its the second best thing after the all around banned and restricted Deathrite Shaman. Red has plenty of great cards, but that minotaur at best should be nothing more than a passing sideboard idea for racing in non-interactive matchups.
If you want to use you rituals to cast early Demigod of Revenge i would advocate replacing 4x Simian Spirit Guide & 4x Desperate Ritual with 4x Vessel of Volatility as its mora consistent and will provide you with 4 cards to do something more useful.

A friend of mine built a god deck and was having trouble with devotion so he included some of the following and they really helped.
He only runs 3 or 4 of them but most of them are interesting options to run. Fist of Suns is also really nice in his deck.

Sarkhan, Fireblood is aeons ahead of Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded. It has a good-to great +1 (it can be used to enable stuff like Goryo's Vengeance + Griselbrand), and the floor is Tormenting Voice. And it has a game winning ultimate - which is a better Marit lage (due to evasion and multiple bodies).
Its likely gonna be a staple in free win red variants, and gonna pop up time to time in decks like skred, or ponza, that would love card filtering but have little to no access to it. (And the latter two decks may be able to use the second +1 to power out early dragon)
(While tibalt has 3 useless abilities)
Bone Dragon easily could have been fixed Skaab Ruinator, is the ability would not include a mana cost. As it is its complete garbage in constructed. Just compare it to cards that we have since eaons like Demigod of Revenge, and that is only marginally played.

I like the list. Have you considered cutting the curious obsession and swapping in Thoughtseize and a negate/alliance to net three sideboard slots?
Black also has some notable spirits to look at- Bloodghast, Nether Traitor and Demigod of Revenge from the graveyard, Dimir Infiltrator for transmute, and Will-o'-the-Wisp as a resilient chump blocker. I've tried to get a mardu Shared Animosity spirits list working with Eidolon of the Great Revel, but it needs a particular meta to run smoothly. This has a lot more resillience.
