Legendary Creature — Demon Dragon
When Malfegor enters the battlefield, discard your hand. Each opponent sacrifices a creature for each card discarded this way.

I built this Malfegor edh deck recently. Mostly because it is a Demon Dragon and the conflux art looks sick. Also, not caring about my hand is an interesting dynamic, which would make it vastly different then my other decks.
Anyway, I was looking for any tips or suggestions on improving it. I am on a semi-budget so nothing to pricey (preferably mostly under 5 dollars, but willing to go over that sometimes).
Thank you for any help you can provide!

Befall the Titan
Legendary Enchantment - Saga
: Create a 6/6 black and red Legendary Creature token named Malfegor , Hand of Bolas with the Demon and Dragon subtypes. It has flying and haste.
: Destroy up to three target non-land permanents you don't control.
: Destroy all non-land permanents. Each player loses life equal to the number of permanents they owned that were destroyed in this way.
1st Saga embodies Malfegor's sheer brutality and power.
2nd Saga embodies his war across Alara as he invades Esper to go on a brutal genocide, guided by none other than Nicol Bolas himself.
3rd Saga embodies his vast swath of destruction and ultimate demise on Bant. This stage can literally cause you to lose the game if your life total is too low or you have too many permanents. Your greed and pride can undo you, just as Malfegor's did.
Let's do that again :) Saga depicting the full arc of a prominent character in Magic's history. Try to focus on someone who isn't very well known / popular. It's tempting to do Urza or Bolas because they are known by all. Let's try to stick with a lesser thought of, but equally important character!

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom
Here are some houses:
Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?
Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone
Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone
Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this
Treasonous Ogre ... seems good
Reef Worm ... endless worms
Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped
Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+
Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes
Midnight Reaper ... yes
Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this
Goblin Bombardment ... yes
You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...
To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...
Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out
Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice
Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet
...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.
Demons would also be pretty sweet:
Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice
Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice
Havoc Demon ... wipe
Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?
Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good
Lord of the Void ... betrayal
Malfegor ... wipe?
Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe
Reaper from the Abyss ... removal
Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor
Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal
Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

Happy to help! A Malfegor deck sounds awesome by the way!

Thank you for the comment! This has been one of my favorite decks to play to date. I wanted to make some updates to it and you have provided valuable feedback. I am considering changing it to a Malfegor deck focusing on discard and mutual destruction.

For Dragons, which I guess you want win with I'd use ones with lower CMC since they're easier to cast and provide cool effects:
Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury
- I just don't like discarding hand especially in a deck without mass reanimation (
), while Kolaghan can pump all the Dragons, which with
Double Strike becomes lethal
- Moonveil Dragon for Glorybringer - it also can count as removal when you decide to Extert
- Thunder Dragon for Thunderbreak Regent - Regent punishes every target removal
For planeswalkers I'd strongly suggest trying out Sarkhan, Fireblood

I wanted to stay away from as much combo potential as I could, so I left out Necrotic Ooze .
Torment of Hailfire is always a good card, but I wanted to stay more on the creature plan if I can.
Malfegor is awesome, I need to find a cut for him I think.
I stayed away from the Megrim effects as I wanted this to not have a heavy discard focus (you'll see I cleand up a good amount of the discard). The goal is more of play good threats, and evenutally when they and other creatures die, bring out the commander for a second round.

Looks like fun. Just wanted to put my comments in a place you can find them easier.
Not a fan of Ill-Gotten Gains , it allows your opponents to get back the good cards you forced them to discard earlier in the game.
Adds? Necrotic Ooze , because activated abilities happen Angrath, the Flame-Chained , Burglar Rat , and Arterial Flow make your opponents' discards happen Sire Of Insanity and Mindslicer are pretty mean, but at least everyone is stuck in topdeck mode. If you want to be "fair" you could play Awaken the Erstwhile so at least people get some creatures when they discard.
Malfegor , enables your discard and kills stuff.
