Desecration Demon Discussion

Out of curiosity, why aren't you running The Rack? It isn't expensive, and it is more consistent than the Quest for the Nihil Stone. Also, Desecration Demon is ok, but a card like Master of the Feast is cheaper and the drawback is virtually non-existent in your deck, though I would take it out vs control as the instant speed may be troublesome. I personally enjoy Stain the Mind as it is able to be convoked. I realize Dreamstealer is recurrable discard, but you run so many discard effects, I think I'd replace him with someone like Erebos, God of the Dead to hose lifegain and add card draw. I'd add two of him and perhaps 2 Nyxathid or another alternative win-con in its place. Best of luck though! If you ever get the chance, a play set of Liliana of the Veil is basically required to make decks like this truly competitive. But you can do quite well at the FNM level without her.

I would like to mention that I know someone who owns a black oath it goes the demon tribal rout. Here are some cards that I think that this deck would like for one Carrion Feeder, Nightmare, Reaper from the Abyss Demonlord Belzenlok a good turn 2 play is Desecration Demon and finally some good sack fodder Abhorrent Overlord.

Desecration Demon isn't really doing much here. His whole theme is to have a cheap 6/6 flyer that an opponent can stall out to prevent it from attacking them. But the cheap is irrelevant because we're playing kaalia. So let's expand on its secondary purpose, making an opponent punish him/herself to stop you from doing something you really lack, card draw, with Indulgent Tormentor
Malakir Cullblade doesn't fit the theme of this deck. Malakir relies on your opponents to let him grow into a threat when the theme of this deck is to cheat out creatures that are already threats. Deaths usually don't happen unless you're dealing with a sacrifice themed deck. Instead, consider Strionic Resonator This card is also 2 CMC and is fantastic in this deck as you already have a lot of triggered ability creatures and more importantly, it works with Kaalia allowing you to go from cheating 1 giant creature for free per turn to cheating 2 giant creatures for free for 2 mana of any color.

joaoguaxinim, I agree about Reassembling Skeleton. 2 were in a previous version of this deck. I'm not sure what to cut to keep them. Skeleton Archer seems too expensive for its ability. I think I would run Desecration Demon instead.

Squelching Leeches and Nightmare are both pretty bad cards. Their effect isn't that strong, and you can get better things for that amount of mana. Might I suggest you go the Devotion route with Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Dread Shade, Gifted Aetherborn, Geralf's Messenger, and Vampire Cutthroat. If budget is not an issue, Phyrexian Obliterator...all day, every day. If it is, then Desecration Demon is an amazing choice.
I would also change your tags. They're very misleading. You have "Casual" AND "Competitive" in there, when this deck is nowhere close to being able to compete in a competitive format. If you want it to be aggro then you really need to lower the average mana cost of the deck. Aggressive decks win by turn five at the VERY latest, and this deck isn't doing that. It's also not a dragons deck, nor is it Suicide Black. Suicide Black revolves around a card called Death's Shadow or Asylum Visitor. Basically they win as quickly as possible without putting up any defenses.

It's worth the slot in case your trump card goes to the grave. I believe it will be a better replacement for Fleshbag Marauder Other cards that work very well with toshiro is
Virtus the Veiled Either they lose half their life or deal with toshiro's ability
Desecration Demon same thing 6 in the face or deal with toshiro's ability
Nightmare's Thirst you are running a lot of lifegain so this can get rid of indestructables
Detection Tower hexproof can be a problem

I'd concider Desecration Demon in here, maybe even replacing Master of the Feast since giving your opponents free cards means giving them potentially more answers to your demons...

My #1 favorite set in the entire history of Magic was the Tarkir block, specifically Dragons of Tarkir. I know most people went for Khans of Tarkir because of the fetch lands, but I'm not a very competitive player. I like flavorful decks, big flashy cards, stupid combos, and awesome finishers.
- Your typical Timmy / Johnny Modern player
So when I saw the plethora of Dragons in M19 my inner fanboy freaked!
I currently have like four or five Dragon decks. Gruul, Jund, Rakdos, Azorius (That one sucks but is fun to play), and I had an older Jund deck that I quit using because it was making problems with my group.
I gotta say, Sarkhan, Fireblood pairs especially nicely with Sarkhan Vol. Their +1 abilities line up rather nicely. Draw a card and give your bois +1/+1 and Haste or pop out a Dragon and give it +1/+1 and Haste. Very nice.
Sure, Fireblood is two turns slower to ult but you also now have 8 cards in your deck that do the same thing (If you so choose). Dragon decks centered around Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Tempest will have far too much fun with these.
Which leads me into Sarkhan, Dragonsoul. I currently have a Mono-red Dragon deck that actually ramps via Dragonlord's Servant and Infernal Plunge. I'm definitely able to make room for at least two of these guys, which is going to be awesome.
Stepping aside from Dragons now, I'm also super excited for Apex of Power as I routinely run decks that can very easily achieve those levels of mana, though I may just run a single copy in a deck as Genesis Wave is strictly better. For 10 mana, you get X=8 and they hit the battlefield. Though what's interesting is if you cast an Apex of Power, you can filter the top seven and Genesis Wave the next 8. I'm not 100% certain if this is a good idea or not, but it could be worth looking at.
I'd also like to say that I'm super excited for the new Gruulfriends deck I can build around Vivien Reid and Domri Rade. If you get both emblems, which should be rather easy to do in Gruul, everybody now gets the following:
- +2/+2, Indestructible, Double Strike, Haste, Hexproof, Trample, and Vigilance. That's a TON of anthem!
Also, can I just say that Resplendent Angel alongside Nyx-Fleece Ram + Inventors' Fair + Venser's Journal + Fountain of Renewal + Radiant Fountain is dangerously potent when you consider Angelic Accord and Archangel of Thune are a thing.
It's also nice to finally have a new Hydra addition that doesn't completely suck.
I also run a Mono-Black Demon Tribal centered around the following:
- Soulcage Fiend
- Abyssal Persecutor
- Master of the Feast
- Archfiend of Depravity
- Desecration Demon
- Indulgent Tormentor
So, naturally Liliana's Contract is a nice addition. Worth noting: Grixis Arcane Contract will be fun.
