Legendary Creature — Elder Demon

Flying, trample

Demonlord Belzenlok Discussion

LordBlackblade on Mono-B WTF?!

2 days ago

It's not a bad way to go, kind of why I've always been skittish about running Maralen of the Mornsong. I've been experimenting with Demonlord Belzenlok in my mono-black goodstuff deck. He's got a decent body and the card draw is usually pretty good. In my deck he usually draws around three cards.

Warp World seems like an odd choice. What is your plan with that one... I love Azuza, Lost but Seeking, and am curious how Demonlord Belzenlok works? Nice deck love the land combos.

Mirabilis on Subjective Reality (Flicker Focus)

hi Daggerfella,

I see.

You can go aggro control. Most of the creatures do hurt (5 power) with effective etb effect/s. Flickering them reuses their etb and give pseudo vigilance.

I will raise a disclaimer that esper tends to run "good stuff" because, well, there are good spells that have little to no alternates.

From the creature list: consider keeping

--removal Angel of Despair

Ashen Rider

Lavinia of the Tenth

Reflector Mage

--draw Sphinx of Uthuun




--value Arbiter of the Ideal Brago, King Eternal Diluvian Primordial -> great when many spells in opponents' gy

Sepulchral Primordial -> another good one, getting creatures in opponents' gy

Magister Sphinx -> my bias. similar to Sorin Markov

Vela the Night-Clad -> could be a win con, when you flicker enough

Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign

Resolute Archangel

Sun Titan -> not sure if you have many 3cmc permanents, but usually great to have

--combo Deadeye Navigator Peregrine Drake

maybeboard Boreas Charger

Chancellor of the Spires

Demonlord Belzenlok

Djinn of Wishes

Felidar Guardian

Jace's Mindseeker

Mistmeadow Witch

hope this helps.

Hello... I've been playing your deck in MTG Arena (without the Trophy for now) and its very good. But I've changed the Hydras for Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma and for me its far better. For the same mana cost, you got a 4/3 that helps you to get faster to the biggies and also helps with the Vine Mare Also, have you considered Demonlord Belzenlok? I've run the deck with it and once it got rid of 4 lands that were comming in row, and gave me to the hand 3 cards: Vraska's Contempt, Angrath, the Flame-Chained and a Banefire

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

I'm soon ordering some hype cards for this deck as well. I wish you the best of luck with Demonlord Belzenlok. He's been a blast for me and hopefully he will bring the high rolls for you! :D

It was pointed out to me in a recent game actually. Someone else played the card and pointed out the interaction to me (it hadn't even occurred that he dealt damage to you). He told me this while I had been trying to stay afloat between 5 and 10 health the last 5 turns, with a small glee on his face! :P

I have managed to "kick some ass" with the deck, as you put it :D! I threw together the original list in a hurry before mtg night with my playgroup and it put in much more work than I expected! I already loved mono black before this, but Demonlord Belzenlok took the fun to new heights! :D

One more thing. I don't know if you are aware, because you didn't mention it, but if you have Whip of Erebos in play when you cast Demonlord Belzenlok the damage he does to you from his ability will not do damage to you, due to the lifelink. I mean it does but you gain the life back.
