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.

@ playingonabudget Noble looks interesting, but I was looking for a way to play that got away from EDH and pauper a bit more, something that took a cue from the way rarity is distributed in packs. Thanks for the heads-up, though. Noble's rules could serve as a template for me...
@ ljs54321 Good point. I had forgotten that Shadowborn Apostle could tutor any demon, not just Desecration Demon . I guess this format would need to ban any card with "A deck can have any number of cards named ~" text.
Giving it a bit more thought, if I were to go ahead and try to outline this new format, it would need a name that was not confusing and gave a sense of what it is (sort of how EDH became "Commander.") I was also thinking of only including printings of cards where the rarity is obvious with the gold/silver/black scheme.
Name Ideas: Five-Fifteen-Budget, Pyramid Rarity, Hierarchy
I would imagine Shadowborn Apostle would get the ban with Relentless Rats , possibly even moreso due to the utility it provides of being able to tutor up any Demon and drop it in play at instant speed. If I built a deck for this format and Apostle was legal, I'd dedicate all my Mythic/Rare slots for Griselbrand , Demon of Death's Gate , Desecration Demon , etc.
I've got two regular decks based around this theme (Disciples Of Slaughter and Traitorous Act Of Unwilling Sacrifice), I've found Thoughtpicker Witch to be very effective as well as Mogis, God of Slaughter . Depending on your budget you can never go wrong with Desecration Demon .
Nice deck though +1.
Sorry it took me so long to respond, haven't been on in a while. I agree with the reasons you gave for Fiendslayer Paladin over Brimaz, King of Oreskos . I always like when people have done their research for the deck they have made and have considered all the options. I see neither are in there now, what did you take out? I see two had to be Athreos, God of Passage which I completely agree, he is amazing and I can't wait to use him. Him being out at the same time that Blood Baron of Vizkopa , Obzedat, Ghost Council and Desecration Demon are out is practically not fair. I understand about the Whip of Erebos and Rakdos's Return helping out as win cons and you are a removal deck so you only really need one heavy hitter to get the job done. I agree with not using Warleader's Helix and Alms Beast as well, Warleader's Helix is a great 8 difference life change but is a little slow to simply rely on that as a removal and you probably gain enough life with the whip, or don't need it because your opponents board is clear. Alms Beast is too fragile of an investment, the opponent being able to chump block it and gain life over and over again is too big of a downside to consider. Not to say that he is a bad card though, he just has different uses, my friend used him in a crazy sacrifice deck with Sanguine Bond , Vizkopa Guildmage , and Dying Wish , he would just destroy it or sacrifice it with Cartel Aristocrat and do like 24 damage and gain 24 life, it wasn't that effective but it sure was hilarious. Using Read the Bones instead of Underworld Connections is a good call, underworld is just good in a devotion deck, bones is a stronger card. since you have used some of the journey into nyx cards you should check out Deicide and use it instead of Revoke Existence , the card is awesome, so much flavor, so overpowered, its like a more specific white Slaughter Games . Hell if enchantments start becoming a real problem in the block it might need to be maindecked, but I doubt it. Your welcome on all the comments, the deck is very cool, I am a selesyna man myself. I have some old decks on here but nothing I'm currently running.
Thanks! Food for thought :) And yeah, Desecration Demon with Rite of Consumption seems a solid combination too. I think if I'd replace Abyssal Persecutor with him it'd already be a pretty solid deck. Think I could maybe go with one or two less Go for the Throat then and put something else in. :)
I realise that persecutor is your aim here, but I'd change him for Desecration Demon . Same mana and still a 66, though without trample. Point is he doesn't require you to sac anything, but rather may force your opponent to. I'm splashing red for Rakdos, Lord of Riots and some burn spells to trigger his ability in a similar deck.
