Desecration Demon Discussion
5 days ago
Archfiend of Depravity, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Halo Hunter, Overseer of the Damned, Desecration Demon, Demon of Wailing Agonies, Demonlord of Ashmouth, Shadowborn Demon, and Bloodgift Demon are all budget demons. Demon of Dark Schemes would work well for a shadowborn deck.

Boy oh boy is this deck a total b-word to fight against. You could probably call this "Ruiner of setups and friendships." Your deck plays with impressive consistency and power. That said, I've got a couple of ideas that could strengthen this deck even more!
Land Balance: Your creature costs cap out at 4, so you really don't need more than 20 or 21 swamps. Take out 2 or 3 swamps and replace them with cards like Read the Bones, Altar's Reap, or Cremate to bring in some good draw power. You could also replace a few other swamps with Leechridden Swamp, though it could slow you down early game.
Sudden Death: No. Bad. Grasp of Darkness. That is all
And now for some fun cards to consider: Desecration Demon doesn't heighten the mana curve, it's evasive, and it helps kill off your opponent's creatures. However, it's not a vampire, so Vampire Nocturnus and Feast of Blood don't get any help from him.
Quest for the Gravelord: With all the death happening, Quest would get out the 5/5 Zombie McKillyerface out pretty quickly, and would make a good turn 2 drop since nothing is likely to die in the first turn. However, like the demon, it doesn't produce a Vampire and thus weakens Feast of Blood's consistency of playability.
I hope this helps you a bunch! -CStar

Pathbreaker Ibex doesn't really fit Meren imo, and you have access to better win conditions. If you want to win with one big hit, you are better of throwing something big and nasty like terrastodon, Woodfall Primus, Lord of Extinction or even a big, late-game Bonehoard at your opponent with Jarad. Regardless, Mike and trike or Necrotic Ooze with Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer in the graveyard make for better finishers overall.
I've played around with Skullwinder, but the symmetry is too much of a disadvantage when you are removing opponents' creatures trying to grind out value for a win.

I think the playsets of Vampire Nighthawk, Desecration Demon, and Read the Bones are perfectly fine, even for a casual modern deck you'd play at FNM. The rest of the deck however is sub-optimal for that. Sticking to an Uber-budget can still let you play some reasonably competitive cards.
Let's start with the hand disruption that mono black has to offer, Duress, Despise, and the new card, Harsh Scrutiny. Since your description mentions tournament play, I assume you'll need a sideboard. With that said, having 3 or 4 duress in it, plus a couple despise will help a lot. Depending upon what direction your deck takes, Harsh Scrutiny could go in the mainboard or the sideboard.
Vampire Hexmage as a one or two-of in the sideboard seems good as well. Sudden Spoiling is fine for the sideboard, but I'd take the Infest out from the mainboard and run two Drown in Sorrow in the mainboard.
I'd play 3 or 4 Gatekeeper of Malakir in the maindeck. I'd also run at least two Doom Blade, as it's pretty good removal against anything non-black. Definitely play three or four Victim of Night. Playing 3 to 4 Gray Merchant of Asphodel will be good as well due to all the creatures with two devotion to black. (nighthawk, gatekeeper of malakir etc.)
