MrNobleMonkey, thank you! Extirpate is an excellent replacement to Surgical Extraction. Nearly get the whole playset for the price of one extraction! As far as Demigod of Revenge I would say it's certainly the weakest card in the deck, but it usually ends up helping me fish out removal spells in order to give Phyrexian Obliterator a better chance. If I swapped out any card it'd be the demigod though. Works far better in my deck Revenge of the Underworld [Remastered] it fairs far better thanks to the engines that can put it in the graveyard. Entomb might be a good option, but I figure we want as many permanents as possible to rack up devotion. Sometimes it pays off if I've got Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, but by and large it gets 5 damage in and then gets killed off. I'll probably end up switching demigod out for either Murderous Rider or Ayara, First of Locthwain.

love the deck i have a devotion deck of my own and found that the card Extirpate performed better then Surgical Extraction also is much cheaper. Also im interested to hear how Demigod of Revenge performs with it at the top of the curve.

You say Liliana of the Veil isn’t useful, but imo it would provide some much needed speed to your deck. It would allow to to ruin your opponents hand while also pitching Demigod of Revenge for a later-game win. It would also allow to to very-happily run Bloodghast .
Other than that, my only concern is the sheer quantity of 4 and 5 drop cards you’re running. Most modern midrange decks wouldn’t be seen running more than 4 4-drops, and no 5 drops. Understandably you want to be casting Gary, but i think you should rethink your other 4-and-5 drop selections and try to limit them. At the moment i see it being difficult reliably getting a game to go long enough to play them

How do you feel about a transformative sideboard into (or from) a Madness deck? Thinking of Demigod of Revenge , Fiery Temper , and Avacyn's Judgment personally. Also, Darksteel Colossus may be a better non-budget option than Emmy to get around GY hate.

Maybe you have left them out intentionally, but you didn't get all of the Spirit Avatars. Here's the ones you're missing:
Admittedly not all of them are especially good (especially the Demigod is not exactly a gamebreaker in EDH), but I'm a big fan of the Spirit Avatars as a card cycle and an Avatar deck would be the perfect opportunity to run all of them in a single deck (at least I'd want to run them all if I were to make the deck). It's up to you.

Have you considered a Devotion shell instead of a tron one? you could use Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Phyrexian Obliterator and Gray Merchant of Asphodel . Demigod of Revenge and Geralf's Messenger might also have a place in a devotion shell.
How often are you looking for more than one card with diabolic revelation? If it isn't often Dark Petition may be a little better.

Just as a side note: this deck was originally built around Demigod of Revenge , which is not great in the current meta. As such, the current mainboard still needs some tweaking. Feel free to offer feedback, I'd be happy to hear it.

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.
