Liliana's Contract Discussion

Hah! No problem, looking at the rest of the set, I was not particularly impressed, the demon enchantment, Liliana's Contract was cool looking though.

I like the idea of winning with Liliana's Contract without needing Arcane Adaptation and being able to just beat down with cheaply costed demons until then. Turn 2 Metallic Mimic into one of the ammits and letting you cancel the -1/-1 seems cool, you kind of work around their intended downsides. How have your games gone? It seems like it can pull off its gameplan but might fold to removal since you don't have cheap creatures and most of them have some sort of initial downside so games might need to go long to turn in your favor.

Rite of Belzenlok doesn't provide a named demon to trigger Liliana's Contract, also, the demon requires an upkeep sacrifice that can't be avoided. lastly, 4x 0/1 tokens on the board still die to 1 Goblin Chainwhirler or 1 Plague Mare then we are stuck taking 6 damage.
That said, Liliana, Death's Majesty creates tokens for it to eat if your in a pinch.

It'll be hard to reduce the CMC of this deck since Angels and Demons tend to be quite expensive.
You could remove Sigil of the Empty Throne since best case scenario it gives you 9 tokens as long as it was the first enchantment you play and it isn't destroyed. It just might be putting too much faith on a permanent in a format filled with board wipes.
A card you could replace it with maybe Gift of Immortality. It has a lower CMC and can help you protect some of your expensive beaters or use the enchanted creature as payment for some of your sacrifice spells and abilities.
Since you seem to have a token thing going, may I suggest Anointed Procession? It doubles your tokens and gets more value out of your token generators. You can even take out Herald of War (great for angel tribal decks but your demons get neglected from it) and replace it with Herald of the Host. Its Myriad ability creates tokens to attack your other opponents AND coupled with Anointed Procession would create twice that many tokens attacking. In a 4-player game, that's 16 damage total flying to your enemies from a single card. And since you have cards that give lifelink, double strike and other abilities to your creatures...well there's a lot of math going on.
Teferi's Protection is a 3 CMC card that protects you for an entire turn rotation. Its price is around $20 bucks but it can definitely help you out in a pinch. You can combine it with M19's Liliana's Contract since you're running quite a few demons to give your deck an alternate win con.
Speaking of alternate win cons, Felidar Sovereign + Quicksilver Amulet is an amazing combo that can flash in a victory with all your lifegain. It's not an angel but I figured it would be worth considering.
Overall I think your deck is pretty solid and it looks like it would be fun to play and go up against. Good luck!

Abyssal Persecutor :"you cant win the game and your opponents cant lose the game" Liliana's Contract :"At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control four or more demons with different names, you win the game" What would happen in the case of having Abyssal Persecutor and 3 other demons out? I would assume the Abyssal Persecutor would override Liliana's Contract and prevent you from winning but im not exactly sure. How do you determine which has "priority" in this case?

Yes I saw Liliana's Contract and while it looks good I think this is a win-more card for this deck. Let me explain why: Drawing cards is always good but it is not the kind of card draw this deck needs. I mostly want steady card draw like Phyrexian Arena and Greed to have a constant supply of Apostles. Drawing 4 once just isn't enough to crank out sets of 6 Apostles consistently. On top of that, the win clause paints a huge target on my head even if I am nowhere near to reaching the condition. When I finally get enough demons to trigger it, I either have tutored 4 times or have reanimated a graveyard full of demons. If either happens I am so far ahead, I can win on the spot most of the time. Waiting for my upkeep again only gives my opponents another turn to mess everything up again. Best case scenario I can imagine for this card is when my opponents forget about it (people never forget about win-the-game cards) or I have instant mass reanimation of at least 4 demons, it which point I would have won anyways most likely. Liliana's Contract is neat but unfortunately not good enough for my deck.
