Rite of Belzenlok Discussion

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.

I was wondering if Rite of Belzenlok would be a good fit?

At the moment you will have to sacrifice something nice to Demon of Catastrophes. Rite of Belzenlok gives nice block fodder or targets for the -1/-1 counters.

You definitely need to add some boardwipes, I only see the disk.

Maybe add these cards:

Panharmonicon if you go with an etb theme

Manglehorn make mana rocks come in tapped

Reclamation Sage etb removal

Merciless Executioner another Fleshbag Marauder

Eternal Witness expensive but on theme

Viscera Seer cheap, sac to scry not bad, especially if you want to reuse a creature for an etb effect

Satyr Wayfinder self mill

Sylvan Safekeeper SUPER good for protecting your big bois

Tatyova, Benthic Druid great if you're going for a landfall subtheme

Yavimaya Elder good for mana fixing

Coiling Oracle once you start playing from graveyard, essentially a draw spell

Hostage Taker

Meren of Clan Nel Toth with a sac theme, could be a good secret commander

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

Yahenni, Undying Partisan sac outlet

Wood Elves good ramp outlet once you start recurring

Archaeomancer good way to get back your non-permanents if you run self mill/wheels

Disciple of Bolas

Jace's Archivist

Hermit Druid self mill

Maybe take out these cards:

Baleful Strix not a lot of utility unless you just need flying blockers

Notion Thief it will certainly be in the graveyard at some point, but flash is what it makes it so good; also no guarantee you'll have Whispering Madness to cast with it; you have several tutors though so maybe you could get it off

Sheltering Ancient buffs your opponent's creatures if I understand correctly; you'll have to buff at least one creature to even attack with this

Shriekmaw a little too specific about removal

Rite of Belzenlok

Abrupt Decay cmc might be too low to use in some cases

Hey, I think the Demon archetype can really benefit from Reassembling Skeleton in M19. Several Demons in current Standard and M19 Standard coming up can be good with a recurring sac outlet like Skeleton: Demon of Catastrophes, Rite of Belzenlok and Razaketh, the Foulblooded.

I suggest to make your deck unique consider building around the Demons, Rite and Eldest using Skeleton as a sac outlet. Focus more on one, two and three drop removal rather than creatures.

Something like this:

  • 4x Aetherborn
  • 4x Skeleton
  • 4x Catastrophes
  • 2x Belzenlok
  • 1x Razaketh

  • 1x Liliana DM

  • 4x Push
  • 3x Down
  • 4x Doomfall
  • 3x Never

  • 3x Rite
  • 3x Eldest

not shabby, but you can totally bring the cost down and make it a bit more efficient. I would add a few Rite of Belzenlok, and Torgaar, Famine Incarnate.

I see why you have Walking Ballista, but I don't think it fits.

Hey Daedalus19876! Gosh, removing cards is always a pain :P

How's Luminarch Ascension working for you? I love the card myself, but I know that as soon as I play it, all the aggro comes to me. It's definitely amazing once it starts going, but how often/quickly do you normally get it up and running?

Does History of Benalia really help that much? The tokens are nice, but outside of those guys Elenda and the Hero are the only ones to benefit from the 3rd chapter, right?

Speaking of Hero of Bladehold, maybe that's an option if you don't find yourself attacking with her that often?

Rite of Belzenlok also doesn't seem too helpful overall, but I've never used it myself...

Lastly, is Liliana that useful?

What do you think about Rite of Belzenlok as a 1-2 of for tokens and creature to sac stuff or Dauntless Bodyguard in the side to help protect your stuff?

You'll want some faster card draw and creatures, and more go-wide pay offs. Disciple of Bolas, Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble, Blood Artist, Grim Backwoods, Sangromancer, Rogue's Passage, Whip of Erebos are all good cards to add.

Midnight Banshee is a major nonbo in your deck. It kills all of your snakes that you get from it, as well as many of your other creatures.

I dont see a reason to run Soul of New Phyrexia, Rite of Belzenlok, Rofellos's Gift, or Black Market.

Cut: Trigon of Corruption, Serrated Arrows, and Culling Dais. These cards are all too slow.

For lands you'll want to avoid tapped lands that dont further your game plan some how. Replace with basics or fast-duals: Foul Orchard, Golgari Guildgate, Golgari RotFarm, Jungle Hollow, Khalni Garden, Mortuary Mire, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Cabal Stronghold. Manabasecrafter.com provides a very helpful list of every mana source you can play given your commander.
