Demonic Consultation Discussion
1 week ago
The etb counter triggers are definitely a good idea to go for budget Alesha, however you must remember that the more closer you get to being a value town deck, the more you need to rely on your commander to win. Thusly I suggest some protection for your deck. Darksteel Plate, Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn, Shield of Kaldra and Basilisk Collar all help out alesha.
As for other cards, the titans are always powerhouses. Inferno Titan, Grave Titan and Sun Titan will definitely help you out. Steelshaper's Gift and Stonehewer Giant will help get the equipments you need to protect Alesha.
Finally, for the infinite combo, don't forget to include tutors. Things like Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Dimir House Guard, Beseech the Queen, Enlightened Tutor, Insidious Dreams, Tainted Pact and Demonic Consultation. While many of these are fairly pricey, they are all things to look out for.
I've built Alesha in both directions, the value town and the infinite combo. I only kept the infinite combo variant, so I'll post it here for you to get some insight on certain things to use.

How often have you hit the Demonic Consultation and Laboratory Maniac combo? I am thinking of adding that to my Oloro deck, since it you name Mountain or something with the Consultation and then play the Maniac and then a draw spell. It just seems like a hilarious win-con.

Is this a legal action?
(If I must have a legal target in my deck, I can take care of that.)

I am looking for a third infinite self milling combo. That or I should remove Demonic Consultation. I managed to exile all of my infinite mill win cons with it. I am also thinking of adding cards like Pernicious Deed, Toxic Deluge, and/or Damnation in place of Concordant Crossroads. I am open to all suggestions. Thanks in advance.

I love using Demonic Consultation in some of my proxied vintage decks and block constructed (especially with Necropotence), but the inherent risk in a singleton format is too much. And Cruel Tutor is too inefficient compared to the others I already have, but I am grateful for your ideas.

How about ... Demonic Consultation?
What are your thoughts on using tutors that put them ontop of your deck like Cruel Tutor?

Good point lemmingllama. I got some ideas to take out some of the lesser cards in this deck. I'll be doing an update shortly. I just recently took out Unburial Rites for Exhume, though I guess I can put it back in. It'll replace Stitch Together. Thoughtseize isn't good enough, I'd have to see every player's hand. I'll probably use Glasses of Urza if I had to choose, but otherwise, I'm mainly just going for wheel effects like Dark Deal and Winds of Change in here.
Master of Cruelties draws way too much hate Kryzis, and doesn't actually win me the game. Sun Titan doesn't reanimate any of my pivotal creatures. I'm removing Altar of Dementia so I don't need Relic of Progenitus. However, while I shied away from Volrath's Stronghold in the past, I think it is an excellent idea to use this for Anarchist and Corpse Connoisseur. I'll also be adding in Homeward Path to deal with Bribery effects.
Total cards I wish to add:
- Beacon of Unrest
- Dark Deal
- Demonic Consultation
- Dimir House Guard
- Homeward Path
- Unburial Rites
- Volrath's Stronghold
- Winds of Change
