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.

From waaaay back, when i started playing MtG in grade school. The card that made me smile the most was a T1 Wild Growth . Now? Desecration Demon or Vraska the Unseen in Standard and my general Scion of the Ur-Dragon in EDH.
I see what you mean UpperDeckerTaco, Jace is surprisingly solid in this deck. the kinda/sorta topdeck control is actually really nice (especially paired with chandra) the bounce any nonland permanent on entry can change a game (gets rid of those pesky big blockers or enchanted creatures).
Stoke the Flames is for the rather common x/4 or greater creatures that are used and I side it out in match-ups with smaller creature decks.
Do you have a solid answer for Desecration Demon ? that damned thing is just a thorn that is really difficult for me to deal with.
hmm you are quite right on the Chief Engineer he usually just ends up as a blocker then actually doing anything useful, I am almost tempted to remove him entirely (almost) we'll see after my next FNM (tomorrow). So I will try Generator at 4 chief at 2 and..... hmm that leaves me with 1 open slot...I don't know what to fill it with. =( WAIT I have 1 randomly available Thassa. lets try that
Also, what is your opinion on Abyssal Persecutor ? I am trying to decide on that or Desecration Demon . I really like the flying trample, and the fact that the opponent doesn't have an option to avoid an attack, however, I am in a bad spot when I have no removal spells and am getting low on life points. I've also considered Master of the Feast because of its low drop with high threat, but, in modern I'm certain that giving your opponent a card advantage is a very bad idea.
Haha, wow that deck is similar! I see what you mean with Deity of Scars , but the job of Desecration Demon isn't exactly to do damage, I kinda just want him to sit there and strike fear, and if the opponent lets him get too big then I have already gotten many of their creatures and I can just kill my opponent with a single attack as soon as they run out of creatures to sacrifice (that's the plan anyway). The difference between our two decks is that yours is made to hit as hard as possible with no means of stopping it (I assume that is what you meant your deck to do anyway), and mine is to more slowly wear onto the opponent and attacking once and only once. Additionally, I have been thinking of dropping Sickle Ripper as after the third or fourth turn, he is just dead weight. Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon will be going out, and I think upping the enchantments will be the result. Thanks for the suggestions, and I'll put in the edits and see if anything needs to be fixed next.
It's not like there is no one who does it, but listen to people complain on here all standard season long and you'd think they're playing on the pro tour. I swear people will tell you that they've literally only played against 3 different decks in the last year, Mono-black devotion, Mono-blue devotion, and U/W/x. There are so many people who complain about card prices and how they're inflated because there is no variety among decks and there is all of these people who post up their "budget decks" their working on. But when you see a thread about someone complaining on here, it's like their trying to convince you that no one at their local shop builds with what they got, that everyone goes out and spends top dollar every week and only plays what deck won a pro event the week before. I just think it's funny because when people complain, they want to make it seem like they lost to what's considered the "best deck" and so anytime they lose to a deck that has a Pack Rat , Desecration Demon , Thassa, God of the Sea or Supreme Verdict in it, naturally that person is net decking. It's standard... it's a small card pool and some cards are just strictly better than others in that color. So naturally if your building a standard deck that is competitive it's going to contain cards that you see the pro's using. The whiners don't seem to realize this so they blame "net decking" as the problem, even though that's typically not really what happened. They just don't know better and feel like they need to blame something. It's just funny because If they really had played against nothing but net decks for the last year you'd think by now they would knows whats going on. Apparently a year just isn't enough for them to figure anything out lol.
The biggest problem I faced was Pack Rat
, because if they play it with enough mana to protect it, that's basically game. I could dance around it for a while, but it becomes inevitable. The solution I've decided upon is using 3x Bile Blight
in the sideboard, in place of 1x Duress
, 1x Doom Blade
, and 1x Abrupt Decay
. That will help me against both tokens of any sort and aggro decks.
I also had some trouble with Gruul Monsters (you can read about it in the update) and I'm not sure what to think about it. How should I fare against them? Do I want to have Underworld Connections
in that matchup? What's my game plan there? I'm not entirely certain...
I also was able to trade for two more Scavenging Ooze
, so I have the whole playset now. I replaced one of my Devour Flesh
with a Scooze before the tournament because I felt like I wanted at least three of them. Overall, I really like having it (it helped a ton in my matches). Should I go for a fourth, or not?
About Reaper of the Wilds
: There were some times where it was just better to have than Desecration Demon
, but it was a bit corner-case. The scry was awesome, but maybe Polukranos, World Eater
is better. Reaper was good, but not as good as I wanted it to be. Then again, nobody could kill it, and it's not like they tried to (so it seemed like the Reaper wasn't doing much, when really it was letting those removal spells rot in people's hands.) Something interesting to note --- When my opponent Thoughtseize
d me, and saw I had both Reaper and Demon, they took the Reaper. I can't ignore that, because my opponents are telegraphing that Double-D isn't as good... Maybe Reaper is still worth playing?
Finally, the last thing I'm wondering is whether or not I should consider Pack Rat in my 75. It seems okay, but only if I can combine it with a steady source of card draw/advantage. Feeding a creature to Pack Rat , and then to Scavenging Ooze sounds really fun, though. Thoughts?
Thanks Isntitizzet!! I'll definitely swap Lobber Crew and Boros Reckoner I didn't give him much thought, now it's just a matter if time till I get a playset of him. I wish I had 40$ to get 4x Mana Confluence but I'll see what I can do, so I'll probably get Temple of Malice Yea I only use Rakdos Keyrune (hes a 3/1 but I know what you meant) every once in a while it's not nessessary. So I'd probably add 1x Rakdos, Lord of Riots 1x Desecration Demon and 2 more spells of some sort? If I made this modern do you have any musts?
