Harvester of Souls Discussion

If you want finishers you can add Sun Titan because you have a lot of cheap cards, Harvester of Souls, Cataclysmic Gearhulk or Indulgent Tormentor.

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). It appears I've slightly reversed it and have a "9 by 7" ratio. Some cards also overlap, but I put them in their main use case category.

After looking at the list though I only have 7 categories of cards which means I could look to add a new category by removing some of the weaker cards in each of the existing categories.

Target Protection (10)

Removal (8)

Tutor (9)

Draw (10)

Revive (8)

Utility (9)

Meld (6)

Mana (5 + 35 - 1)

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.

A demon I'm shocked to see missing is Harvester of Souls. With all your creature removal, I thought you'd run him. Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is also good card draw, but is a bit risky.

Hey, the Avg. CMC of this deck is very high consider adding more artifact ramp to compensate such as Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence.

These are more suggestions in no order:

Consider some more early game plays because you want some ceature set-up before you play Marchesa. Baleful Strix is a very efficient creature for only two mana. It's also great when it gets dethrone. Carrion Feeder is a 1 drop free sac outlet that can give itself counters very good with Marchesa. Bitterblossom can gives you a constant basically free source of creatures to sac and with Oona's Blackguard also in your control can be very bad for your opponents.

If you're sacing creatures then Grim Haruspex and Harvester of Souls can be draw engines with Marchesa. With cards like Feeder, Viscera Seer, etc who are free sac outlets. They're also nice to get some advantage when stealing your opponent's creatures and sacing them. Fleshbag Marauder, Mulldrifter and Sidisi, Undead Vizier are all excellent creatures who can sac themselves giving you value in return.

Sadistic Hypnotist has a very powerful free sac ability. A secondary theme here is stealing your opponent's creatures and sacing them for value Olivia Voldaren is one of the best creatures who can do this. She also puts counters on herself which is great with Marchesa.

Culling Dais and Phyrexian Arena are additional draw. High Market having a land that can also be a sac outlet is good.

Good luck with your deck.

Deepstriker29, this deck contains 11 cards that either draw or tutor for cards, most of which draw a butt ton at once, which has proved time and again to be sufficient to keep the deck chugging along (This deck had 12, but the 12th was removed due to its major downside in this deck, that card being Dark Prophecy). Soul of the Harvest is a slightly worst Harvester of Souls, as it triggers only when I play creatures, while Harvester will trigger upon any nontoken creature dying, mine or my enemies.

I don't like the sorcery speed card draws you suggested as they have their statutes of limitation. A card like Inspiring Call, which is an instant, does something similar to Rishkar's Expertise but the biggest difference is that Call has a far less chance of decking me than rishkar's expertise. This deck goes crazy quickly, and once it starts, without having instant speed cards to draw with, a card like Expertise could only be played before it useful, or after its too late. Mazirek grows to be around 60/60, Mycoloth about 80/80, which makes the Expertise a threat to me as it will deck me at that point, but with call I can respond to his trigger to make the most use of the draw.

Grave Titan used to be in here, cut him for Ophiomancer due to how synergistic she is with Ashnod's Altar and Dictate of Erebos, along with others.

Thanks for your suggestions.

As much as I like playing big flying beaters, adding more cards to dilute the number of Apostles in the deck seems counterintuitive. If you did want some additional targets, I would stick with Harvester of Souls and Bloodgift Demon, but not much else.

This particular take on the deck seems more like a general monoblack value deck than an all-in combo, so maybe dropping the Apostles altogether might be worth it? You have things like Grave Pact, which works against the Living Death plan (your opponents will just get back whatever you've worked hard to kill over the course of the game, and will probably disrupt you). Just a thought. Appreciate that you checked out my list tho :)
