Desecration Demon Discussion

Taipan on Throne of Sacrifice

Yeah I think I might put Desecration Demon into the deck instead of Soul Collector. He's a much more straightforward beatstick, and with the Blade on him he'll cause death even if they tap him out of combat.

Bone Splinters is only sorcery speed. I already have a sac outlet. I think Victim of Night is better, its 1 more mana but instant speed is a big deal.

Blood Artist is fine, I just think he's too slow for the deck. Grim Haruspex gives me card advantage, which is better than the slow lifedrain he does.

I understand the need to fiddle with a deck, I kinda do it myself.

Trouble is you changed a deck which basically worked, with nice to have over need to have

You do need defence, you do need an alternative to Vish kal, but you have to put in things which make sense to use with him.

Desecration Demon could be a monster with him, Bloodline Keeper  Flip could feed him hugely.

Bloodghast feeds him, both demon Ob nixilis feed him, pw ob feeds him

But now you go into the realms of my deck, so consider tokens

As to Demons...

Master of the Feast is okay, doesn't really link in with the other demons though.

Desecration Demon would be brutal in the B/W deck, making your opponents sac, with the Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble even Sangromancer in play.

I am not sold on Athreos, I can see plusses, but also negatives, wouldn't work at all with a token deck though.

I reckon PW ob would work well for you, giving you sac tokens or 5/5 flyers (that's why he is in my deck).

If your going to use Sign in Blood on yourself, I suggest trading it out for Read the Bones. Another thing I would trade Asphyxiate for Hero's Downfall to have the extra takedown on planeswalkers. Warren Pilferers why, only goblin card and it is a 5 cost 3/3, trade it for a slightly better card such as Desecration Demon, or a Grave Titan

Tragic Slip would be awesome, along side things like Blood Artist, Bone Splinters, and Desecration Demon it would be cool

mdunham FAMOUSWATERMELON You would both be surprised at how quick this deck is.... I almost always draw into a Sol Ring and/or Dark Ritual with a Desecration Demon or Liliana of the Dark Realms in my starting hand.... I almost never have problems. Turn 1 Liliana's mean Im more or less guaranteed her emblem, so massive mana ramp there. Plus, for me at least, Quicksilver Amulet never seems to be far from the top even though Im only running one. Even if I dont draw it right away, the amount of disruption and removal I use buys me plenty of time :P

Good attempt at a deck. If you're running Fetch Lands, you shouldn't be running Dragonskull Summit. You'd be better off running Blood Crypt because you can reach it with the fetches. Desecration Demon is a great creature. I would recommend a playset. Likewise, Vexing Devil should also be a four of because, at worst, you've burned the other guy for four. I would drop Generator Servant in favor of Dreadbore. I think the destruction is better than the ramp offered by Generator Servant.

The situation that comes to mind though is something that I personally like to use that exploits a huge weakness in your deck. Turn 1 giant creatures. For example, Desecration Demon. Not hard to get out with a Dark Ritual and Sol Ring on turn 1. Or cheap Heroic decks that turn little 1/1's like Akroan Skyguard into 16/16's by turn 3. (Again, these are things i use) You have very little defense against decks that shoot for an early and aggressive win. 1 or 2 Geth's Verdict or Diabolic Edict s might be useful, perhaps in the sideboard, at least :P
