Desecration Demon Discussion

Your deck seems to run on making a bunch of +1/+1 counters, which is a good start to a marchesa deck. A couple things to touch up on, though:

  1. Disciple of Bolas isn't the best for the deck. In its place, you could add in Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, which makes an emblem of that same ability.

  2. I like adding in Sheoldred, Whispering One or Phyrexian Obliterator to most of the decks I make that involve black; they're just very fun and annoying to have.

  3. Flesh Carver seems like a fun addition; it lets you sacrifice a creature for 2 counters, and with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Marchesa's ow ability, you can get a lot of counters on it.

  4. Vela the Nightclad could work. It gives intimidate-pretty useful.

  5. Last, try Desecration Demon, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled and/or Ob Nixilis, the Fallen. They're fun cards for pain and manipulation.

Maybe a better structure for next time? It is super hard to read! Something like this:

Whenever I get sad I cry...and then I Stifle my tears,

hoping to Negate my fears;

still fighting after all these years,

looking for a Fighting Chance.

My best friend even Abrupt Decayed

was better off being left to Drown in Sorrow.

I managed to live for tomorrow with my Angel's Grace

even with this Desecration Demon in my face.

Maybe if Gods Willing to save me from being Bile Blighted

there will be a Second Sunrise.

Yet the Anger of the Gods rained down on me...

I was left with so much Hatred

every step I took felt like Acid Rain;

every breathe I take I Choke on Ashes to Ashes;

everyone I knew was stuck under One Thousand Lashes.

Even my old Mad Auntie - driving me insane till I Empty the Warrens.

Maybe someday I'll get a Final Fortune and there will be Natural Order.

What do you think? Should there be more poems? They don't all have to be sad! They can be Happy or Sad - Cheerful or Mad - Pleasant or Distasteful - About Peasants or Kings, whatever! :D If you don't like the poem a simple "You'll get it next time" will do!

Essence Harvest would pair great with Desecration Demon! My 1 drop space is kinda taken up by Evil Presence, to limit what they can cast from the get-go. Banewasp Affliction seems nice, but I don't know where I'd find room for it. Thanks for the suggestions!

if your looking for any 1 drop creatures I'd recommend Bile Urchin, it goes along with your theme nicely

since it taps when an opponent sac's a creature... you can still get use out of your Desecration Demon with Essence Harvest or Rite of Consumption

Banewasp Affliction works well with your theme too, especially with Geth's Verdict

Me and a friend of mine were at a Meijer yesterday and we were browsing around the card section, not planning on buying anything really when we noticed a small goof. You know those packs of three that have a promo in it, like Hamletback Goliath or Angelic Skirmisher? Those packs that are priced MSRP for $11.99? They had those packs listed for $4.19. Needless to say me and my friend bought all of them. The packs actually split up perfectly and we each got 10 Return to Ravnica packs, 5 Journey into Nyx packs, and 2 each of Theros, Gatecrash, and Dragon's Maze for only $31. That's like $1.50 per pack.

My notable pulls were Stomping Ground, Hallowed Fountain, Blood Crypt, Pithing Needle, Master of the Feast, Detention Sphere, Worst Fears, Desecration Demon, and a Vraska Assassin token.

I just wanted to brag a little because nothing awesome ever happens to me like this.

Not a bad mono-black deck for this being your first deck! Definitely gotta give props for the Desecration Demon. That thing is a beast early on and left alone! You might want to consider alternate forms of damage. Hissing Miasma and Blood Artist are both good options to make your opponent think twice before playing recklessly, and Blood Artist can make any bad situation into a good one if you use him right. A single Artist out while the Desecration Demon forces sacrifices literally changes the demon's effect to read "Your opponent may tap this creature at the beginning of combat by sacrificing a creature, paying 1 life, and putting a +1/+1 Counter on Desecration Demon. If your opponent does, you gain 1 life." With unfair combos like that you'll be devastating with your friends! Also try Underworld Dreams to punish your opponents for simply drawing a single card!

CharlesMandore, I agree with the 3-mana thing, but what do you suggest replacing Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Mogis, God of Slaughter, and Desecration Demon with?
