Pestilence Demon Discussion

Delta-117 on Unfinished Kaalia needs HELP

1 day ago

If I had more time I would write something a little more substantial, but I will just say to you to check out edhrec.

From here you can from the top of the page take a look at the average Kaalia decklist, then also look at popular choices in the deck. Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Rune-Scarred Demon, and Iona, Shield of Emeria are some of the most common choices. Some of these angels, demons and dragons are slightly expensive, so Im sure you can put in some cheaper alternatives (like Archfiend of Depravity, Pestilence Demon,Indulgent Tormentor etc), as magic has no shortage of these creature types since there literally is at least 1 printed every new set!

Let me know if you have other questions though still, and I can try my best to help when Im less busy.

Funkydiscogod on Need suggestions for abusing Revel ...

3 days ago

Here's some ideas:

Disciple of the Vault and Marionette Master don't mind sacrificing treasure.

If an opponent has a poison counter, Throne of Geth can proliferate them to death. Throw in some planeswalkers for bonus points proliferating loyalty. Are there any energy cards worth proliferating?

Dovescape with Revel in Riches is almost a combo. I think Pestilence Demon would help? Or would a Enduring Ideal shell work better, since you can fetch Trove of Temptation and slowly win?

What about self-giving creatures like Sleeper Agent or Akroan Horse? They give the opponent the incentive to kill their own critter, so we don't have to waste removal on it.

Sending a Jinxed Idol to the opponent would encourage them to sacrifice their own critters to prevent the damage, but speed up the Treasure clock. Seems like it would be too casual.

Great list of interactions. I'm going to have to see what I can steal for my recently rebuilt Divine Decree. I know Pestilence Demon is 8 mana and heavy on black but might be worth a thought. Some of the enrage dinosaurs out of ixalan might be good here too. strap indestructible to Raptor Hatchling maybe? I dunno not many of them outside of green yet...

DudelRok on Powerful Commanders on a Budget

Kresh the Bloodbraided with stuff like Pestilence, Pyrohemia, and Thrashing Wumpus is the BEST! It lets you kill stuff consistantly, avoid the a lot of the expensive cards that usually come with Kresh (you don't need any Pact effects or sac outlets, for example). The entire deck, complete with stuff like Essence Harvest, Soul's Fire, and Fling came to around to, like $60? XD

Lethal commander is the name of the game!

Plague Spitter

Pestilence Demon

Anything that pings all the things!

Last Laugh was a funny board wipe that also sometimes killed everyone.

DrunkManSquakin666 on Kaalia, Destroyer of Metagames

3 months ago

Interesting... Not usually a fan of Malfegor in a Kaalia deck, but it seems like he'd work, here, lol.

Pestilence Demon and Bogardan Hellkite seem like the only critters I'd take out. What for? Good question... Hmmm...

Platinum Angel, Baneslayer Angel, Archangel of Thune, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Thundermaw Hellkite, and Archfiend of Depravity are all solid suggestions. If you find yourself needing some grave hate, Angel of Finality also helps. Depends on what you're looking for.

Also, this one's a bit odd, but Oni of Wild Places is potentially hilarious with Rakdos the Defiler and Master of Cruelties, lol. Worth experimenting with, if nothing else. :)

albino34 on Cease Hitting Thyself

The difficulty with Worldslayer is that our focus isnt really to destroy all permanents, as that would spare a few of our creatures, but leave no one with lands or anything useful to close the game. So instead of dragging out to attempt a rebuild, we would rather cast something like Volcano Hellion and Arcbond if necessary, and win that way. Whip of Erebos helps us not to kill ourselves doing this, or with Pestilence and Pestilence Demon.

JA14732 on Heralds of Ruin

Alright, so taking a look at this, I see a few cards that can be immediately cut. Ruin Rat is just bad. Doomfall doesn't work in EDH, Nef-Crop Entangler has better cards, Toil isn't great here unless you're pointing it at yourself, Tresspasser's Curse doesn't help you get big things out, Horror of the Broken Lands is just bad, Carnage Gladiator is kinda meh, Prismatic Lens is weak AF, Kozilek's Pathfinder just doesn't really do anything here outside of being a colorless mana sink (which you don't really have support for) and Desecration Demon will likely never attack.

Some replacements:

Nef-Crop Entangler out, Nettle Drone in. Nettle Sentinel is bonkers and I KNOW you have a copy of it somewhere (I legit gave my copy of it to you).

Prismatic Lens out, Cryptolith Fragment  Flip in. Fixing? Check. Gives you +4 (or more) mana towards creatures? CHECK.

Toil out, Bloodgift Demon in. Not only is Bloodgift a decent beater, but he gives you card draw. Basically a dude version of Phyrexian Arena with a side of hitting opponents too.

Ruin Rat out, literally anything else in. Probably Endbringer, simply because I think you have my copy of it. Use it.

Horror of the Broken Lands out, Conduit of Ruin in. Bad card out, better card in. Tutor + cost reduction is nutty.

Trespasser's Curse out, Combustible Gearhulk in. Not only do you need more dudes, but you need better dudes. Combustible shouldn't be hard to find rn and is very powerful in a deck with Eldrazi.

Carnage Gladiator out, Duplicant in. It's free removal. Just do it.

Kozilek's Predator out, Pestilence Demon in. This Demon can make multiple opponents lose a lot of life very quickly, as well as nuke crappier creatures. It also beats for 7.

Desecration Demon out, Pathrazer of Ulamog in. Self-explanatory.

Rakazeth's Rite out (it's a bit expensive for a tutor), Crypt Ghast in. You'll appreciate the ramp as well as the Extort triggers.

Doomfall out, Hero's Downfall in. I think I have one lying around and Downfall is just better.

Loxodon Warhammer out, Neheb, the Eternal in. Someone'll get it eventually, and he's just baller.

Seer's Lantern out, Sin Prodder in. Yes, I hate Sin Prodder. But goddamn if it isn't fun AF to nug someone for 12 off a blind flip, and synergistic in this deck as well.

Breaker of Armies out, Shepherd of Rot in. Spoiler alert, pingers are great in Rakdos. Additionally, it gets around cards like Solitary Confinement or Orbs of Warding.

Traveler's Amulet out, Hellkite Charger in. You know you want infinite combats with Neheb. Don't deny it.

landofMordor on Blood-Braided Beatdown (Primer)

Thanks for your feedback, KuraiU! In fact, I was thinking about adding in something like Pestilence Demon or Sanguine Praetor for those mass-removal effects, but the unconditional edict effects like Dictate of Erebos aren't quite the direction I want this deck to head, especially considering I've got some edicts in my Karador deck and I don't love double-dipping on cards too often. But thank you for the suggestion! I really appreciate it.
