Demon of Dark Schemes Discussion

If you follow the cuts that I stated as well as the ones in your description, that adds up to 15 cards. You have 17 cards in the "Possible Additions" category, so you only have to worry about 2 at that point.

Three of my suggestions are lands, and three of the cards you are considering adding are lands, so easy trade in there. The rest are up to you, but Demon of Dark Schemes could be replaced with Razaketh, the Foulblooded.

Anyway, just my two cents. Let me know what you think.

You aren't running the combo, so he doesn't serve a purpose here.

Just put in Ancient Tomb for any of these. I don't think you will miss 'em.


I think CW Liege is alright, but he's more combat oriented than anything else. Even at 4 CMC I'm eh about him.

I know you love him, so I won't even start to talk smack. Just saying there's wiggle room here if you need a slot.


You already have Sakura-Tribe Elder, Solemn Simulacrum, and Sylvan Ranger on top of Ashnod's Altar, Deathrite Shaman, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. You don't need that much ramp.

Other than that though, I really don't think there's much more to cut unless you want to focus your synergies more so towards certain mechanics.

This isn't legal in modern in addition none of the creatures even give you a strong buff for example cards that etb board wipe all other creatures or win cons for example 4 of Massacre Wurm and Demon of Dark Schemes maybe even Noxious Gearhulk with either a control shell or mana ramp depending if you are going more blue or green in addition i would remove white from this deck as it doesn't do much without Cataclysmic Gearhulk another thing since the premise of this deck is illegal in this format switch the tutors to the better versions and if you go green add cards like Worldly Tutor

I've been doing a lot of testing with this concept. My current build is Jund and the main payoffs are Noxious Gearhulk, Combustible Gearhulk and Demon of Dark Schemes. I recommend you switc out the Metalwork Colossus for any combination of the gearhulks. Combustible Gearhulk is so good in this style deck, especially since so many of your cards are high cost. Also, I feel 3x Ever After is way too many, especially since you're running the full playset of Liliana, Death's Majesty. My list just runs 4x Liliana and I find that to be plenty.

That's perfect Reverie42. Yeah Massacre Wurm could replace Demon of Dark Schemes perfect fit.

Demon of Dark Schemes performed very well...he came in, did his job, filled up both yards with creatures. He wasn't on the board too long tho, most people get a bit uncomfortable with a 5/5 flyer. I played him against the flash deck, but didn't draw him. I may actually run one of him in main, extra in side, and board that extra one in against flash/spririt stuff. The first game against flash I just got over run, the second, he got his Elder Deep-Fiend chain going, and it was lights out.

Yeah, I ordered my playset of Champion of Wits, she was actually sold at at both LGS'. Nimble Obstructionist was the over achiever for sure.

Geo67 Glad to hear it was fun to play. Champion of Wits is definitely crucial for the discard, and there isn't much that can replace her right now. How did Demon of Dark Schemes perform? I'm thinking of running a copy in the mainboard or at least another in the sideboard due to the rising popularity of WU Monument decks. It's a one sided board wipe against the spirits.

Could add the new Liliana, Death's Majesty Good animator and ain't rotating for a long time. Plus makes zombies and mills cards into your graveyard for value. Also a Noxious Gearhulk is a monster etb to bring back on their turn with Demon of Dark Schemes. If you want to be aggressive i would swap the Gonti, Lord of Luxury out for the Ammit Eternal's as they have proven to be devastating in aggressive decks. Especially if you follow it up with a cartouche.
