Desecration Demon Discussion

I like the concept of the deck, but it seems to slow to play efectivelly. I would remove some of the high cost creatures that you have, and focus on smaller ones, like Desecration Demon. So, I would suugest Daze and this is because you'll be mana hungry and you want to play fast, so Daze is a fast counter that can stall your opponents. Having that in mind, you may not have money for Underground Sea, but Watery Grave is a really good card to combo with Daze. I would also use some more spot removal Doomblade or Diabolic Edict. Also, to speed up the game, there is Lotus Petal, a very good card.

Besides, how is your budget for the deck? Do you mind take fetches?

These are only my suggestions and feel free to argue. I would like to hear your thoughts about this.

Great deck! Here are my recommendations Desecration Demon, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Nightveil Spectre? (<- sux against lightning bolt). I would not play 3 Lili's and 2 Phyrexian Arena. That seems like overkill. Maximum I would play 4 Lili's and that's it. 2 Fulminator Mage mainboard is OK if you like them. 1 Grave Titan would be OK. You really want to play 4 Blood Crypt and 4 Blackcleave Cliffs. Vampire Nighthawk is AMAZING if you are not up against Lightning Bolt. Phyrexian Obliterator<- on of the best black creatures ever printed. For card draw you want 4 Dark Confidant

Removal: Victim of Night, Hero's Downfall, Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Ultimate Price. Disfigure, Damnation

Whip of Erebos is good for grindy matchups

Lifebane Zombie for the sideboard

I modern I would take out 1 Chandra, Flamecaller, 4 Demigod of Revenge, 2 Phyrexian Arena

Thanks, frostdiggity and Izu_Korasu for the feedback and suggestions! I thought about Blood Artist, but I don't think there's a enough sac in the deck to make the life exchange strong enough to take up a 2CMC creature slot, especially with the weak body.

I considered Desecration Demon before, but I wasn't convinced it was scary enough. I'll try it out in some test games. I think I'd still get more mileage out of a Vampire Nighthawk than Gatekeeper of Malakir. Geth's Verdict is already in the sideboard.

Beyond that, I try to avoid having too many big spells in most my decks because I plan on winning by T5 or so. My goal with this deck is come out swinging with hard fast hits.

Desecration Demon, Gatekeeper of Malakir and Geth's Verdict seem to fit the theme of the deck.

as do cards like Curse of the Cabal and Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos

Lol, my brother used to say the same when i asked why he uses 2x Desecration Demon + 2x Phyrexian Obliterator, instead of just 4 obliterator.

Desecration Demon is in general a brutally awesome card, and is awesome enough on its own, even though it doesn't have any synergy with the rest of your deck. As far as getting those cards you can buy singles relatively easily from TCGplayer if you want to get those cards. I have 2 Felidar Sovereigns and I don't generally play white, so i could give you one if you want.

Phyrexian Obliterator just does what its name suggests - and a lot better than Desecration Demon imho.
(sadly its price follows its power)

Thanks for the feedback! I've not gotten the chance to test this version of the deck at all, but running out of gas and the low amount of high cost cards are something that I'm smoothing over slowly. I like all of the suggestions, especially Ajani, Caller of the Pride. Unfortunately I am but a scrub and don't have any of these cards. Do you think Desecration Demon would be a start for a lategame? It fits the theme and is a generally big threat.
