Desecration Demon Discussion

Thank you Wonky.wombat.. I really don't like giving my opponents options and unfortunately, that is exactly what Desecration Demon does. Abyssal Persecutor is cool, but has a much bigger drawback than Master of the Feast and I'd have to add spells just to deal w/ my own creature.

How about Abyssal Persecutor, as he is a 6/6 flying trample turn four, then when your opponent is a -4, you just kill it with some of your removal. Speaking of, Rite of Consumption is an uncounted able way to get rid of it, and it adds some reach. If that seems to risky, maybe Desecration Demon, since your opponent will either sac a bunch of stuff, preventing them from killing you, or take tons of damage, and if they saced their board and have nothing left, you are left with this 12/12 flying trample. Also these are all pretty cheap.

I've made a deck based on that idea some time ago. Feel free to check:
SCORE: 17 | 10 COMMENTS | 18254 VIEWS | IN 16 FOLDERS
The idea is to use cards like: Trickbind, Sundial of the Infinite, Torpor Orb, Disallow, Voidslime and Hushwing Gryff to counter the EtB triggers and cast your massive creatures. There is also the option to use Fling and Rite of Consumption for cards that have upkeep triggers.
Currently this is the list of cheap big creatures with big drawbacks for modern:
Vexing Devil, Boldwyr Heavyweights, Cosmic Larva, Desecration Demon, Desecration Elemental, Dust Elemental, Eater of Days, Leveler, Hunted Phantasm, Hunted Horror, Hunted Troll, Hunted Wumpus, Hunted Dragon, Hunted Lammasu, Inverter of Truth, Nova Chaser, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Primeval Force, Sky Swallower.

I have to admit, I love the theme. Demons are some of my favorite creatures in MTG, and I've honestly been considering adding Desecration Demon and Indulgent Tormentor into my own deck. I love the speed the deck provides, along with the ability to remove blockers with ease. And you've even got my favorite card in Magic, the Underworld Cerberus, to top everything on. Keep up the good work, man!

Thanks for the suggestions. I have considered Gray Merchant and to be honest I completely forgot about Lashwrithe.... Don't know how I managed that.
If you have anymore suggestions please don't hesitate to put them down :)

Cards I think should be cut (mostly because they are weak or overcosted or irrelevant to your game plan): Akoum Hellkite, Desecration Demon, Imperial Hellkite (morph is not reduced by Rakdos' ability), Sire Of Insanity, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Conqueror's Flail, Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip, Piranha Marsh, Zoetic Cavern, Palace Siege, Quest for Pure Flame, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Tainted Strike, Lightning Bolt

Aside from the Phyrexian Dreadnought already mentioned, you wouldn't go wrong adding a number of the under-costed black creatures (demons mostly) that come with a significant downside to offset the difference.
For example, Abyssal Persecutor is a 6/6 flying trampler until you want to kill someone, then it becomes a horde of zombies with Gisa. Or, cast Demonlord of Ashmouth, immediately sac it to Gisa, then use one of the zonbies to pay its cost when it enters the battlefield again due to undying. See also: Desecration Demon, Grinning Demon, Master of the Feast, Shadowborn Demon.
