Gauntlet of Power Discussion

Maxpphire By the time you reach turns 5 and 6 where you can cast Caged Sun or Gauntlet of Power the game is usually already over or it's about to be. Extraplanar Lens is a decent option for mono white, but it still won't be enough. You NEED fast mana to have a fighting chance in cEDH, no question. White is arguably the worst in terms of ramping. Cards like Land Tax and Endless Horizons simply guarantee that you'll have lands to play they're not gonna help you race other decks. I agree that the voltron route isn't the best way of doing 8.5 tails, but your deck needs quite a bit more high end cards to be an example of a cEDH viable 8.5 tails list. As a previous pilot of 8.5 tails I'm aware of the potential strengths that he has, but I don't think he's tier 2.5 worthy.

Archwizard I really don't need Fast Mana when I have ways to easily double or triple my mana base thanks to Caged Sun, Extraplanar Lens, and Gauntlet of Power and I consistently get one of them if not two of them. Land Tax and Endless Horizons also helps me get my mana base out. I will admit that Angel's Grace is a fantastic suggestion, but I also have ways of being able to exile/Destroy creatures fairly easily. The fact that I hermit down was a comment on myself of not being able to pilot my own deck as properly as it could be piloted. If I was more aggressive I'd be a bit better.
I'm not even asking that Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is Tier one. It's not and I know it, but I think it would better fit in the 2.5 list as if you play properly to it's strengths, you can make a devastating deck with it. Most of the decks being "Lets buff a single creature and attack with it protecting it with 8.5 tails" is not playing to its strength as a card.

Here is a list of budget cards I think you should consider:
Here are some cards that has a little more value:
Another thing I noticed you are lacking is card draw, here is some suggestions:

Price of Progress and Comet Storm are some of the best burn cards in EDH. Stuffy Doll is great with most all types of red Blasphemous Act style removal. Speaking of removal: Spine of Ish Sah, Chain Reaction, Pyrohemia, Caldera Hellion are all absent at the moment. Solemn Simulacrum because red ramp. Maybe some doublers Gauntlet of Might, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun. Is Whispersilk Cloak more valuable than Darksteel Plate in your meta? Lastly since red draw is minimal you might want to consider Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth.

First off, I love this deck! Demons are a fun tribe (however they barely don't make my top five).
My one suggestion is to drop Warn Powerstone for something like Gauntlet of Power, Nirkana Revenant, or Extraplanar Lens. The reason you might want to drop Warn is it is slow. It comes out tapped which sets you back one turn. The three listed cards help you double your mana and with such a high CMC, you'll need it.
Another suggestion is to take out Tendrils of Corruption for it's better counterpart, Corrupt. Being able to hit someone for a lot of damage can be a game ender. Corruption also hits creatures.

Rage Nimbus is definitely low priority but it's a great way to force your opponents to run their creatures into each other and leave themselves more open for you. There are probably just better options like Avatar of Slaughter. If you add more mana ramp in the form of some of my other suggestions and Gilded Lotus, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, and Thran Dynamo you should have enough mana for Nim Deathmantle. Definitely you should have Neheb, the Eternal in the deck, and he would also contribute to making the Deathmantle amazing. If you are really tight for budget then yeah, stay away from the deathmantle for now. For Helm of Possession, the point is that Brion might get killed, or become too expensive to cast and you just have a bunch of Ball Lightning creatures that don't do anything so the Helm is another way to turn them into value by stealing other people's creatures. Armillary Sphere isn't actually ramp since it puts them in your hand; just play cards that put them into play instead and that you may be able to reuse, like Burnished Hart. I forgot to mention Sun Titan, but he should absolutely be in here, given that so many of your dudes that come in to smash and die are 3 CMC or less. Infiltration Lens is what I suggest to replace Staff of Nin. It works perfectly in your deck's plan and is super cheap. Combine it with Nemesis Mask for all the cards. For Sunforger you should generally be building the deck around it in the first place, or playing at least 10 targets and Mistveil Plains. Of all the cards I recommended, Lifeline is definitely the most important. I would say no to Sneak Attack and Kiki-Jiki, they're too expensive for the effects without saving you much in this deck. Dreadnought is interesting though.

Replacing Batterskull with Akroma's Memorial saves another $4, costs you the +4/+4 and lifelink, but gains other abilities and hits all your creatures. Alternately, you could place Gauntlet of Power in this slot and still save a couple bucks while eliminating your need for Thran Dynamo.
