Indulgent Tormentor Discussion

I think you broke me. (That sounded kind raunchy, sorry bout that).
You are the coolest dude I know for that!
Let's see where should I start... I'm running Altar's Reap over the other card draw because it's a sac outlet as well as draw.
The reason I'm running Fetid Imp is because he can have deathtouch which is nice, but really may not matter with all my kill spells, but him and Carrier Thrall are my only creatures below 3 mana. But I could probably replace the imp with something infinitely better. My thrall though, that's my homeboy, sacs for dayzzzzz.
Thanks for the awesome suggestions, Infernal Spawn of Infernal Spawn of Evil is an auto include. 4x for sure.
I feel my comment doesn't live up to your sick drop down!

i'd run Yahenni, Undying Partisan except you don't have a lot of removal. i'd offer Indulgent Tormentor except this is a format with bolt so he dies to everything. you should run some utility lands over just 4 swamps unless you are determined to make this strictly budget. (you don't have enough creatures for westvale abby to be an option. If you want a cheap creature that really isn't as good as it use to be you could play Nightmare if you want to stick to 24 swamps. Its a beater but its really a 6/6 flying for 6 on turn 6 so any demon could fill that role. Erebos's Titan would be good if frontier had shrine to nyx but it doesn't. you also don't run enough removal to guarantee hes indestructable when you want, though he could be a good sideboard against dredge as hes bigger than anything they play except ormandal and he would constantly recur.
Kothophed, Soul Hoarder could be a good finisher/card draw he is unfortunately a double edged sword. you have some lifegain to partially negate his downside, but hes really just a better nightmare. That said from origins Dark Petition could really help you as by turn 5 you will have spell mastery in this deck. meaning its a demonic tutor for you. 1-2 Ob Nixilis Reignited offers control and a win con if you can protect him.
If you aren't on a budget Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet even as 1-2 of is a very powerful win con. So is Liliana, the Last Hope. If you want a sweeper attached to a body Demon of Dark Schemes could be a cheap win con, provided you can actually produce other sources of energy to steal your opponents creatures.
The truth is with the current deck you have built, there really is no 100% go to cheap option for a win con besides obnixilis but hes unreliable. If you completely retooled the deck to be Aetherborn tribal you might have something. The thing is if you want to kill your opponent by draining life you need to be WB RB or some variation of the 3.

FruitLoop7515 so I added Read the Bones to the deck list. In my testing, I felt like Indulgent Tormentor was just a bit too late game for his ability to really be of any use, and he never really made card draw consistent. Read the Bones, however, seems to be relatively early game. It's cheap, with a great effect, and it gives back that scry I so desperately needed after swapping out Titan's Strength for Madcap Skills. Thoughts?

I have to admit, I love the theme. Demons are some of my favorite creatures in MTG, and I've honestly been considering adding Desecration Demon and Indulgent Tormentor into my own deck. I love the speed the deck provides, along with the ability to remove blockers with ease. And you've even got my favorite card in Magic, the Underworld Cerberus, to top everything on. Keep up the good work, man!

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder -Good draw, especially in response to board-wipes.
Harvester of Souls An inferior Kothophed but you also don't lose any life and! it also protects from board-wipes.
Underworld Connections - inexpensive repeatable card draw.
Greed as above.
$2 and up
Stuffy Doll -Indestructible! perfect defender and enables Rakdos
Phyrexian Arena -Great!! Card draw. Inexpensive and reliable.
Ob Nixilis Reignited -Great Card Draw with removal... It's an autoinclude in each of my black decks. It is just too good.
Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath - Triggers Rakdos, Damage, Life-gain, Cheap 5/5 demon tokens, and the Ultimate is more life-gain with some added card draw.
Mind's Eye - Best multiplayer non-blue card draw imho.
Just a few recommendations from a fellow Rakdos player.
Hmmm... Ever wonder what January 19th would be like with Rakdos running around DC. :D
