Demon of Death's Gate Discussion

CasualCucumber on Demon/Sacrifice deck help

2 weeks ago

I am trying to build a casual sacrifice/demon deck.

The main idea is to run creatures like Demon of Death's Gate, Demonlord of Ashmouth then sacrifice creatures like Carrier Thrall and abusing it with Grave Pact.

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 :)

Bridge from Below is a solid card. It sees play usually with cards like Faithless Looting, and maybe Insolent Neonate, that let you put it in the graveyard easily.

You can get the critters to fuel the Bridge relatively quickly with Bloodghast and Prized Amalgam, but it might be best to use those to power out the Demon of Death's Gate, because you can play a land to get them all back.

Wow, I'm amazed by all the input so quickly. Certainly some food for thought here. Huge thanks to everyone. I did realize that Demon of Death's Gate would not work with the original concept since it lists specifically sac'ing black creatures and eldrazi are either colorless or devoid. Granted, there's better demons that might support this concept like maybe Xathrid Demon, Reaper from the Abyss, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder and/or Harvester of Souls. Though focusing on eldrazi with emerge in conjunction with scion producers and cards like Grave Pact, Quest for the Gravelord, and Skirsdag High Priest might be better. Suppose more like running demon support rather than demon themselves. The deck would be mostly casual and aim for just a fun, interesting way to use the 2 archetypes regardless.

Boza: the only way to get Demon of Death's Gate into play reliably is to "cheat" it in with things like Through the Breach, and if a player is going to cheat in creatures, there are other much better creatures.

I would say that Demon of Death's Gate is a perfectly good magic card that has not found a home. I made this a while ago when GGT was still legal, but it works the same with Golgari Thug:

The key to abusing demon is Bridge from Below. Use demon as a non-banned Dread Return.

Funkydiscogod: MindAblaze wasn't saying that every deck aims to win "on" turn 4, he was saying games are usually "decided" by then. theres a difference. control decks aim to have the game locked down by turn 4, and then win at their own pace. Demon of Death's Gate requires too much effort for modern. 6 life and 3 black creatures is too much of a cost for something with no haste that can be killed with Path to Exile or Terminate.

There are plenty of Modern decks that win after turn 4. Those can be considered "Control". I mean, Cryptic Command is a modern staple for that exact reason.

Demon of Death's Gate is interesting because you might be able to shove one sideways into a Death's Shadow type deck. The evasive trampling could catch some opponents offguard.

So I was sitting at work thinking about anything but work, so i started running new deck ideas in my head. My 2 favorite decks i'm running right are mono black demons and green eldrazis. Then i got the idea of mashing the 2 themes together.

Now, this is part discussion and part rule questions so i wasn't sure where exactly to post it. The Basic premise of the deck would be to run eldrazi cards that produce scions and/or spawns and maybe a couple solid utility based eldazi but then run black cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos so that when you sac' them for mana your opponent has to sac' also. To round out the line up you might run Westvale Abbey  Flip and perhaps Demon of Death's Gate. Of course there'd be other tech choices but just to name a few offhand.

Main concerns are, will this combo function as planned, how viable is this, and if the decks would honestly just work better separately and more focused.

I'm not very informed on the meta or even previous meta's so this could already be a thing and this thread pointless. I apologize if that's the case. lol
