There used to be, but I had too many effects to make people lose really fast with Demonic Pact, Immortal Coil, Forbidden Crypt, and the Leveler in there I had to take some out. Its a really funny card though and its great with Ramos

Have you considered adding Strionic Resonator to duplicate the Door to Nothingness effect. Also in 5 color you could do fun stuff with Zedruu the Greathearted like cast Demonic Pact then once you got down to the lose the game effect give it away with Zedruu the Greathearted.

you might think that Blinkmoth Well isn't very good, but a buddy of mine plays a super dangerous deck that revolves around Bazaar Trader to give you cards like Abyssal Persecutor, Demonic Pact (he uses the good effects then gives it to you), or Immortal Coil before you have anything in your graveyard.

For Gottsplitter

WOW, thanks for the really quality post!

I got to say I like your deck you have made, and your post has made me really think long and hard about the recommendations you have given me. So here are my thoughts on all of them.

Relic of Progenitus you are correct about it not being perfect, but it never really caused problems as I would just pull off a donation before triggering the ability, however the first effect on it helped a little with the exile 1. But all in all the main reason I was keeping it in was its draw effect, and as Nihil Spellbomb also has draw I am totally down to add it and see how it plays out at my next FNM.

Terminate and Go for the Throat as stated are mainly here to remove the Abyssal Persecutor, but I cant see me taking them out or changing it to Greater Gargadon for the simple fact of the kill gives me way more survivability. I find that I have enough donation in the deck that I rarely need to use them on Abyssal Persecutor and instead I use it as a kill to take out my opponents shenanigans. So I will not be adding Greater Gargadon but I do have to say I really like that combo and would have never see using it like that, such a good idea though.

Sign in Blood is something I was looking at, however the deck is already tight fitting in all the cards I need for my combos aswell as the cards that let me live long enough to pull off a win. And so there is just no room for Sign in Blood, and as for Street Wraith mostly the same reasoning as Sign in Blood but also it does not really fit the theam and idea of a donation deck.

As for more Fetchlands, I really want to... but that shit is expensive yo, and I am already way over budget for what I wanted to spend on this deck. (100$ was how much I was originally looking to spend, to give you an idea for how over budget this has gotten... but I do have to admit it has been really fun to play.)

Also this deck list is a little out dated after Juppe recommendations I have actually created a V3 of this deck witch I played last night at my local FNM, but after your recommendations I have created a V4 of the deck witch I hope to play next week.

Here is the links as well as the changes between each version.

Damn another long ass reply, well hopefully I did not ramble too much and got my point across, if you have any other ideas or recommendations feel free to place a comment and I will get back to you... also I will try and remember next Friday after FNM to make a comment and tell you how the Nihil Spellbomb play out.

Stuff like Phyrexian Etchings & Demonic Pact doesn't move, means business, and the deck has nothing against em....

Jokes aside its a nice list.
Do you plan including a 4th Dark Confidant? (If not, why?)

I absolutely love it! Feel free to use my version as a source of inspiration! Be warned, Demonic Pact demands a lot of attention in your deck building! Best of luck!

I absolutely love it! Just some advice from a fellow Demonic Pact abuser, you're really going to want more removal and wrath effects to survive long enough to get your engine going. I recommend Fatal Push, Path to Exile, Terminate, and more Wrath of Gods. Crackling Doom is always a fun sideboard card in Mardu as well.

Demonic Pact fits with your daredevil theme along Abyssal. Save the dmg tick for when you sack Abyssal and win with style :)
