At the beginning of each combat, any opponent may sacrifice a creature. If a player does, tap Desecration Demon and put a +1/+1 counter on it.

Bought twelve Desecration Demon for a buck a piece. 108 dollar profit. I was happy.
I think we tied on that overall in terms of value
I'd max out the Hardened Scales , get a few Experiment One , and replace the Retribution of the Ancients with Unmake and replace a Putrefy with Mortify . As good as Desecration Demon is, I think that you'd be better off with a third Corpsejack Menace and a fourth Herald of Anafenza . Your mana curve is also really low on two drops. I'm personally fond of Tidehollow Sculler , but it doesn't fit the deck well.
I'd cut the Kin-Tree Invocation down to one, as it will only be useful late game.
Burst of Strength is a nice combat trick, allowing you outlast at the end of your turn, then when your opponent declares attackers, you untap the outlasted guy so he can be a surprise blocker, and it gets a boost as well.
Bramblewood Paragon is a nice two drop.Deranged Outcast might work.Lotleth Troll can get big quickly, and the regeneration makes him hard to kill.Quirion Dryad is insanely powerful in this kind of deck. She will get bigger practically every turn.
I made a trip to my local card store and bought some new cards, so I just made some changes.
Seer's Sundial , Ur-Golem's Eye , Blood Scrivener , Attrition , Transguild Promenade , Faithless Looting , Taigam's Scheming , Island , Indulgent Tormentor , Stronghold Assassin , Eater of Hope , Unscythe, Killer of Kings , Demolish
Fact or Fiction , Necromancy , Lightning Greaves , Phyrexian Arena , Bloodstained Mire , Desecration Demon , Impulse , Grim Monolith , Dark Ritual , Jace, the Mind Sculptor , Thran Dynamo , Gilded Lotus , Vandalblast
I can lose these cards:
I like the feel of this deck and how it runs a little more black than most others I've seen. My first thought is the land balance - I'd recommend at least 2 Mana Confluence
, but if not then perhaps drop 2 swamps for 1 more sandsteppe and one more Temple of Silence
. Second thought is about the Master of the Feast
. I picked up a playset when they came out because I figured they'd replace the Desecration Demon
. They almost have. But in my many games using them I have found that the only decks they really fit were pure mono-black aggro or a discard based deck where having them draw on your upkeep meant a late game sorcery-speed discard spell was not a wasted card.
In your situation, where you're trying to rely on removal to control the board around your win conditions (typically the planeswalkers), the opponent getting extra cards is potentially a bad idea. Playtest it and see how it feels and I bet you'll agree. In place of them, perhaps a 4th Hero's Downfall
and a Brimaz, King of Oreskos
. Or 2x Brimaz, as he is awesome. Or up to 4 Herald of Torment
because he rocks as well.
+1 on the deck! Cheers!
I like gravepact and Dictate of Erebos in a deck like this. Desecration Demon seems fun and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen could make an impact on the field as soon as he shows up. Ravenous Demon Flip seems good. Lord of the Void seems awesome. Spirit of the Night should be there imo. Necropolis Fiend has great utility.
I completely agree with you diatryma. If money was no problem, it would be:
All of those are very big upgrades from what is listed now. Sadly, I must give way to money as an actual finite resource. So I put it forth on TO, to get some brains a churning about possible alternatives that could still be fun and such. Not like I'll be going to a PTQ or anything, so we have some wiggle room.
