FrenchFryNinja thanks for the recommendations, Lake of the Dead is in.shadow63 I will put in Desecration Demon because I reckon it might be better. Any suggestions to replace Vampire Nighthawk then?

masterosok Though Desecration Demon is pretty good in 1-1 since it either bash for some easy 6 damage, stop my foe's progression or eat some removal right away to secure better drops afterward. I feel like Magus of the Moat is a little too defensive for my tastes :/

Deck is looking good. One more thing, Desecration Demon doesn't work as well in Commander as it may seem as after it gets in that first time when cheating it in with Kaalia usually it just gets tapped down until someone is able to deal with it. Since we are cheating stuff in with Kaalia or Quicksilver Amulet the value of a 6/6 flyer for 4 is not quite as good as other options since odds are its not getting a chance to attack each turn. If you are looking for something cheaper that you can play when you can't cheat something in consider Magus of the Moat to slow other aggro decks down some or you can always add another bomb like Balefire Dragon which synergies well with Tariel, Reckoner of Souls as you are likely to kill something when it attacks. Or you can add a mana sink like Forgestoker Dragon to keep your fatties from getting blocked.

I feel as if you don't need the Archfiend of Depravity.. Your whole goal is to simple screw them up, by sending out the biggest baddest creatures as quick as possible using Dark ritual to get a turn 2 5/5 kind of thing. Generally, you're not against someone who, on turn two, has more than two creatures. So, I feel as if it's not useful in this situation. If you have it In there for the aggressive decks, use Bile Blight instead. The Phylactery Lich seems to be a pretty big part of this deck, I'm not 100% sure, but if it is, don't have 4 of them with only 3 artifacts in your deck, I'd recommend anywhere around 6. Another strong creature I do not enjoy playing against that can screw up an enemy's early game is Desecration Demon 4 mana 6/6 flying. Intimidation doesn't seem to do anything for this deck, because it doesn't seem you have to be worried about getting blocked. I don't think you need the Darkness, as it's not necessary. More kill spells would be fun :D Hero's Downfall works nicely, or maybe something like Geth's Verdict and Tribute to Hunger would suit your fancy? Anyways, good luck!

benni4848 thanks man. Good to see people appreciate it.

I was looking at one of your decks and I saw Desecration Demon, I was wondering how well you'd think it'd work in this deck, with the sacrifice mechanic. Seems like a perfect fit.

thank you i just thought it would be better for controlling your opponent's creatures so he doesn't overwhelm you. also some Victimize would be good if you could fit that in get some demons back also you could replace some of your kill cards for Tragic Slip since your killing off creatures. also maybe a Desecration Demon and some Skirsdag High Priest and oneReaper from the Abyss

APPLE01DOJ on Is mono-black viable. What do ...

U ever play the demon? They sac a token there goes your board presence; something black typically needs to win. (Blah blah 8rack)

Desecration Demon while it shines when it shines it will flat out loose you games when it doesn't. Awesome in multiples though...
