Desecration Demon Discussion

jesmisterThank you for the input. I had 26 land, then I tried 25. I think you are right, 26 is better in a list like this. Serum Visions is definitely on my list of cards to pick up for this list. I am also considering swapping out Remand for Spellsnare. My primary issue with Desecration Demon is that I don't want to tap out on turn 4 to play him because I want to leave mana up for Remand and Mana Leak. I also don't want to play him and then just have him instantly killed or exiled. He also doesn't fair too well against decks that run Lingering Souls.

Also, I think Mystical Teachings is bad without Snapcaster Mage which you said is out of budget the only target you want with the Teachings is really only Consume the Meek. Plus I also tend to like Desecration Demon true it does not have a home but nothing does before you make it. I've been testing it in a lot of decks and it is basically a 6/6 flying for 4 with NO DRAWBACK because if they sacrifice a creature that's good for you and if they take 12 that's also good for you to burn them out with Lightning Bolts and Electrolyzes. Like laggaprone said.

Here's a few I've looked at, black is my favorite color of the proverbial pie.
Erebos's Titan has been a midrange powerhouse in standard and especially enjoys your board clear and creature hate. This forces your opponent to choose between sacking a creature to keep Desecration Demon (great choice by the way, I love the pressure that creature puts on your opponent) and letting your titan become indestructible. It's also fairly cheap with the 4 cmc, as far as the Pain Seer situation goes.
Phyrexian Obliterator, while expensive, is very good at crippling your opponent to the point of not being able to come back into the game (if they don't answer it immediately). It also has the same 4 cmc price tag.
I know you only have two spots left, but if you could cut two of something for Demigod of Revenge it would make for some sick late game plays. Though the ideas I'm having for the Demigod would change a lot of the deck, as I think about it.
I hope my suggestions have helped you find something you like or at least give you some direction to start looking. If you ever chose to change up from mono-black, Hunted Horror is an extremely strong early body, as well as late when you have the extra mana to get rid of two protected blockers.

tchau204 I agree, I can use something better than Endless One but I don't want to use a Soul Sister theme at all, I rather it be a constant lifegain and and not triggered lifegain from a creature entering. I have been debating changing him out for either two Ajani Goldmane for it or maybe two more Rhox Faithmender only because I may see one every few games.
Though no he does not have synergy in the deck he has done fairly well for now in it, as for my higher CMC cards Desecration Demon is four, quickly out usually by turn four or six at the latest.Beacon of Immortality I never play it unless I am either going for a wincon using it or to keep going for a bit longer and stay in game.
Archangel of Tithes is there to extend the game by the mana cost, yea it's not a high one but it builds up and slows them down a little. Plus it's a nice defender or beater if I need it.
Understand, this deck is not just about lifegain, it's control and me toying with the opponent. I don't expect to cast a few of them even by turn eight, if I do fine by me, if I don't no skin off my back really, I want to have a long game with this deck, if I want a short game then I will run my aggro deck Gruul Anarchy and end it by turn five.

I think you have a pretty good shell overall. The only cards I would suggest considering are the soul sisters: Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant. This can give you a mini soul sisters sub-theme with Ajani's Pridemate that would help you win more games imo. I would remove Endless One which doesn't really have any synergy, and is a X/X for X garbage vanilla creature. I would also shave off a few of your high CMC cards such as Beacon of Immortality, Desecration Demon, etc as you're only running 20 lands (statistically this means that you're unlikely to even hit 6 lands on the 6th turn.. you'd probably get it on turn 8-9 if you're lucky/unlucky)
