Desecration Demon Discussion

DankLink on Mono black modern

drop a few swamps and add in some of the best cards in monoblack: Phyrexian Obliterator, maybe Desecration Demon, and idk about griselbrand thats a lot of mana to be hardcasting. Also if you are running crucible of worlds put in things like Ghost Quarter, Tectonic Edge and maybe a couple of Inkmoth Nexus, cause you can chump with them then just replay them.

I can't really figure out what direction u want this deck to go, but here is my advice :)

I don't feel like you should run Cosmic Larva unless u have Crimson Wisps...

Abyssal Persecutor one of my favorits... but how to kill him in time? Fling is a wise choice... but what about Defiler of Souls??? both for stronger creature base, and to get rid of persecutor in time. But if that's to heavy just add some Heartless Summoning to make it insanely fast. Beside that I could not imagine how awesome Damnation would be :3 ! and Beside that... u can always run Rite of Consumption :)

all in all:

Torpor Orb + Hunted Horror, Eater of Days and Demonlord of Ashmouth

Abyssal Persecutor + Desecration Demon, Heartless Summoning + Damnation, Fling and Rite of Consumption.

Phyrexian Obliterator + Gray Merchant of Asphodel, maybe not the best in this deck tho'.

Since this is a pretty open deck to add cards to I have a few different suggestions that you may or may not like

while grinding your opponent's life total something like Gray Merchant of Asphodel would be good to finish them off because you're spike will become less and less effective as the game goes on

Instead of asphyxiate - although I know you love it - how about just Murder

Desecration Demon for the sideboard maybe

Harvester of Souls keeps with the deathtouch theme but lets you draw cards as well if they try any funny business

Could try a Grave Betrayal as a win condition

And a classic that I can't forget Vampire Nighthawk

And just to attach the arrow quiver to as a less expensive option Typhoid Rats

I hope you likes some of these suggestions

Portfolio Well, most of my matchups (In my current meta) have been alot of Abzan Whip and just overall Abzan decks, and aggressive Jeskai and Mardu decks, wich both i handle quite well (And some affinity and Tron). For the quicker decks i think it works out pretty good, even though i do happen too take some damage early game, i can almost always make up for it with either Batterskull or Sphinx's Revelation. I am not saying that i always win with this deck, were i havent had the best draws or just overall i havent played the cards well, but it performs good, and is great on powering out the bigger and high CMC cards like Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Sphinx's Revelation and AEtherling. Against the whip decks, i usually burn, counter and use ugins second ability. Against aggro (Jeskai, Mardu or just RDW) i benefit from early Lightning Bolt's and counterspells untill i get either Tamiyo, the Moon Sage (tapping down creatures) or Sphinx's Revelation. And round 2 (against the aggro decks) i side in Consume the Meek and maybe Engineered Explosives (depending on how much creature aggro they are going). Otherwise Anger of the Gods and my counterspells usually do the trick no problem. Desecration Demon works good aswell, but once again depending on how many creatures my opponent is running since the demon and tamiyo work great together by tapping down my opponents creatures. Thanks for commenting! Do you think i didnt answer your question very clearly, just tell me! Thanks!

SpartanCEL on Turn 3 win/Lord of Cruelties

I don't run Desecration Demon because it didn't work in the previous meta, like they'd just sac and swing, so we'll see. 4 drops have to win the game, Rakdos, Lord of Riots is essentially a 3 turn clock than can ramp into Wurmcoil Engine.We can play him turn 4 even turn 3 I didn't list that yet. I do have a playset of desecration. I should have enough/right mana to cast rakdos and I have 12 enablers. Gurmag Angler is interesting, I may go 3-2 rakdos Wurmcoil for 2 of an awesome card we'll see but it plays well. Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch isn't going to win anything no offense. I am curious to see how Desecration Demon/Tombstalker play out in this modern

Isntitizzet on Turn 3 win/Lord of Cruelties

I'm trying to think of decent black/red threats at 4 cmc for modern. Tomb stalker might not be bad, but also Desecration Demon might be worth a look over rakdos. I know he's epic and all, but he's much less conditional and is easier to cast. Maybe a 2/2 split to test them out. I like rakdos a lot, but 4x seems excessive. Ashcloud phoenix too seems pretty nice in this sort of deck actually. Also not sure why you have the psuedo mana dork in here. He's better off as a lightning bolt analogue, like lava spike or bump in the night. Maybe even a disfigure or two in the sideboard to be more interactive. OR if you're going for the cheap 1 damage to kill the opponent, Mogg Fanatic is fantastic if its modern legal, which I'm pretty sure it is. He's also flexible to take out your opponent's 1 toughness issues, like an otherwise unchecked Bob.

Also, I'd be intrigued to hear what you think about something like Gurmag Angler as a cheap beats delve threat. You play anger out of the sideboard, so ground should be kept relatively clear between that and bolts. He seems like a possibly underrated card in modern with all the fetches you use.
