Demon of Catastrophes Discussion

perplexedsquirrel on Bar

Thanks I'll probably end up finding space either a couple of Costly Plunder or Abnormal Endurance. Plunder is hands down better as an all purpose response to bounce/exile but endurance really shines in enabling unexpected trades and triggering etb/death effects. I like Demon of Catastrophes but Whisper, Blood Liturgist is hard justify given the lack of large creatures to recur and its frailty. I know Gravewaker and his ability isn't a great deal either recurring mostly 2-3 mana creatures but in late game mana will likely be more plentiful than creatures.

This looks like a fun mono colored deck. For more card value I'd add in Costly Plunder and I feel like your deck can take advantage of Demon of Catastrophes. Also I'd consider swapping Gravewaker for Whisper, Blood Liturgist.

1 of each creature is going to be pretty inconsistent. It'd be good to play some turn 1 ramp like Llanowar Elves and you'll wanna see it a lot so I'd use 4 of them. Then you can focus on combo and such. So 4 Slimefoot, the Stowaway and I would think 4 Sporecrown Thallid. Then you just need token generators. You have Fungal Infection and Yavimaya Sapherd which are good. I really like 4 of Spore Swarm too. Then fill in with your finishers. Ghalta, Primal Hunger and Demon of Catastrophes are strong. Play some removal like Cast Down and hand hate like Duress. Maybe a couple cards that can help return your big finishers from the graveyard or a way to help ramp into them, Song of Freyalise is my choice in my saprolings. Does wonders with 4 creatures on the board already.

In the end, you only need 4 Tendershoot Dryad to make saprolings really work.

Good luck.

Alright, it seems the deck is a bit top heavy. Here are my suggestions. I have structured this rework of the deck to sac and get the mana out quick till you can have Meren stay on the board long enough or just hard cast the big things. You don't have to take my suggestions but I highly insist that this will make her work again.

Take out Nirkana Revenant for Satyr Wayfinder

Take out Hermit Druid for Ravenous Chupacabra

Take out Demon of Catastrophes for Viridian Zealot

Take out Razaketh, the Foulblooded for Viridian Emissary

Take out Plague Wind for Wall of Blossoms

Take out Doomgape for Bontu the Glorified

Take out Ruinous Path for Vindictive Lich

Take out Altar of Dementia for Dawntreader Elk

Take out Necropotence for Wood Elves

Take out Deadbridge Chant for Merciless Executioner

Take out The Gitrog Monster for Slum Reaper

Take out Yahenni, Undying Partisan for Diabolic Intent

Take out Voldaren Pariah  Flip for Damnation

Take out Lord of Extinction for Whiptongue Hydra

Take out Stitch Together for Swamp

Take out Vivid Grove for Forest

Take out Temple of the False God for Swamp

Take out Vivid Marsh for Swamp

Take out Vivid Grove for Forest

Take out Slippery Karst for Forest

Take out Polluted Mire for Forest

Take out Desecrated Tomb for Forest

Take out Golgari Guildgate for Forest

I think shoehorning red into this deck is too much work. Sword-Point Diplomacy is better for you then Tormenting voice. Squee is not worth the effort. Doomed Dissenter can do the job well. This deck is screaming for Demon of Catastrophes to finish, and Isareth can bring him back for 4. Midnight Reaper, a new card is also perfect for this.

Thank you multimedia! You’re suggestions are greatly appreciated. I agree with the swap-outs outright; Suncleanser, Skymarch Bloodletter and Radiating Lightning were all aimed at the meta of the current format I had faced with this deck. Once rotation occurs they become less effective.

However the swap-ins needed a little adjustment to handle what I have faced with this build. Against aggro my build only really stumbles against Goblin Chainwhirler on a regular basis, and against control Seal Away and Settle the Wreckage have been ruining my plan. All of which are excellent against Isareth the Awakener, who literally everyone has been suggesting the addition of. I’ve tried her multiple times and each time she gets eaten alive...undead?

So my swaps were: 4xSuncleanser, 2x Skymarch Bloodletter , and 2xRadiating Lightning——OUT for 4xKnight of Grace and 4xKnight of Malice——IN

It has definitely improved my win ratio, so far I have not missed with a Militia Bugler since the upgrade. Also casting one of each on turn four (when I have not drawn a Demon of Catastrophes) is a brutal board-state to move forward with. Cast Down and Seal Away will be excellent cards for sideboard, but I can’t choose what to drop from the main board to make room for them.

Top recommendations: Burnished Hart, sad robot-Solemn Simulacrum, and Liliana's Contract due to the number of demons your are running.

Undiscovered Paradise/Ghost Town - are ways to ensure land drops each turn

Other Ways to search for lands: Liliana's Shade, Armillary Sphere, Journeyer's Kite/Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Pilgrim's Eye, Surveyor's Scope, Thawing Glaciers, Field of Ruin

Keeping the demon subtheme I would suggest: Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Archfiend of Despair, Demon of Catastrophes, Demon of Dark Schemes, Demon of Wailing Agonies, Harvester of Souls, Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis, Reiver Demon

Demonlord Belzenlok/Kothophed, Soul Hoarder/Razaketh, the Foulblooded (these three + griselbrand hold liliana's contract very flavorful)

I would remove: Buried Alive (don't see strong graveyard recursion), Temporal Extortion/Dash Hopes (bc if its that important to your opponents they will pay the life), Grinning Demon/Minion of Leshrac (no upside), Gloom/Infernal Reckoning(unless this is a meta choice but its too situational), Sanguine Bond (do you gain that much life to be relevant?), Death's Approach (for hard removal) and Without Weakness

OO you're totally right about that planeswalker rule (I just got back into Standard and missed that update). Ammit Eternal is actually pretty sweet in my opinion. and Isareth is somehow even better than it looks. The way it interacts with Demon of Catastrophes (good sideboard option for you if you need aerial support btw) and Ravenous Chupacabra gets me rough.

Sword-Point Diplomacy is a sweet card, especially to side-in when you're playing opponents that are bad at making decisions.

Walk the Plank has great coverage and value in case Cast Down keeps staring down Lyra Dawnbringer and you're over it haha.

Vanquisher's Banner has it's place here against certain control match ups.

Tetzimoc, Primal Death is a reliable win condition I enjoy.

lol Monoblack is kind of my thing, sorry to unload. It's looking better though, maybe just a few more 2-drop spells to balance things out and you should be good to go. Reassembling Skeleton is looking real nice with deathtouch, btw.
