Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Grim Haruspex , etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:

I don't know how long your typical games go but i think that It That Betrays hard to cast at 12 mana as a deck with no mana ramp other then Dark Ritual Cabal Ritual and Cabal Stronghold so unless you us a tutor then you might struggle to cast it.

I personally don't like Mindwrack Demon the delirium effect can be rough if you hit the wrong cards with the ETB or if against graveyard hate but if you like a big demon Demon of Catastrophes which also works as a sudo sacrifice outlet. Also not sure about Barrier of Bones

I can't think of any black instant or sorcery recursion, I think that is more of a blue thing might be wrong though

A quick rundown of the first changes I'd try to implement.

Add:

Remove/trim:

You'll want some way to deal with artifacts and enchantments, possibly Seal of Cleansing in the sideboard.

You don't have valuable many-for-ones ( Merciless Eviction , eg); if you want more play versus aggro decks you might add some. Languish , Dusk / Dawn , things like that.

Also you don't have exile-versions of removal, but white and black are good for it, if you wanted to give up some of the "sacrifice for insane value" plan. Utter End and its variants.

If you're going to build a deck as cheap as $30, you're probably going to have to lean on a theme to make it functional. That can be supplemented with the fact that even mediocre demons and devils are good at not being coin-flipped away, but stuff like Dance with Devils wasn't even playable in Limited.

I see some reanimator stuff going on, so if you go that route, Torrent of Souls , Zombify , and Profane Command are all solid budget options. You'll want some graveyard stocking power to go with it. Mindwrack Demon , Extractor Demon , Archfiend of Ifnir , pull double duty. Cathartic Reunion , Dark Deal , Faithless Looting , Hazoret's Monument , Khorvath's Fury , Collective Defiance , Shattered Perception , and Tormenting Voice all fit the bill.

Also, Flayer of the Hatebound could power a nice subtheme with your reanimation, and you can stock up on cheap Undying creatures like Demonlord of Ashmouth , Hound of Griselbrand , and Pyreheart Wolf to lower your budget and synergize with Rakdos. Charmbreaker Devils could also be a house once you stock the yard.

Also, maybe improve general card quality by splurging on Bloodgift Demon and Demon of Wailing Agonies ? Demon's Horn , Carnage Altar , Rakdos Riteknife , Devils' Playground , Dance with Devils , Consume the Meek , and Rite of Belzenlok , Archdemon of Greed , Temple of the False God , Tomb of Urami , and Kindly Stranger  Flip are all pretty bad. Akoum Refuge and Bloodfell Caves seem like easy adds, as well.

No trouble! I wouldn't sleep on Rakdos, though. Even with a 50% chance of killing each creature, it's probably an equal or better rate than Reaper from the Abyss . I think I'd cut Abyssal Persecutor, since you don't have much that can sac it. If you're looking for early demon plays, Spawn of Mayhem is coming out in the new set. Also, Archdemon of Paliano has no downside outside of its draft format. Mindwrack Demon will help you fill the yard. Rakdos, Lord of Riots plays well into your high CMC stuff. Finally, Taurean Mauler is a staple in most red tribal decks. Also, I would run Bojuka Bog to hose any graveyard deck you're sharing a table with.

Pandaka on Razaketh's Demon Army

First, you will need a lot of ramp to get this deck going with all your demon and being able to maybe play multiple demons a turn making this deck able to sweep in with a win. You will also need more creatures that are to be sacrificed to Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Razaketh and Liliana's Contract will have you lose life so you will need some way to regain any lost life. Some cheap demons I've found are Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Demonic Taskmaster, Grinning Demon, Herald of Torment, Master of the Feast, Mindwrack Demon, Razorjaw Oni, Scourge of Numai, Soulcage Fiend, and Soulstinger.

I like Tar Pit a lot, but currently I don't have any, and it's a bit expensive. Also, the mana base is skewed toward BG, so I'm not sure if it's the best choice overall. If I ever get one I will probably include it though.

I'd really like ideas for some Traverse targets. I think Mindwrack Demon or Geralf's Masterpiece seem like good ones. I'm also wondering what cycle cards might help. I really like Nimble Obstructionist as a multi function card, but also Censor can maybe be a sideboard card?

Neotrup on Trample Damage vs Blocking Creature ...

1 year ago

A creature with trample has to deal lethal damage to blocking creatures before it can assign damage to the defending player. In the case of a 5/5 with 2 marked damage, 3 additional damage would be lethal. Specifically your Mindwrack Demon would deal 3 damage to Jace's Phantasm and 1 damage to the defending player, and Jace's Phantasm would deal 5 damage to Mindwrack Demon. Both creature's will be destroyed as a state based action after combat.
