Shadowborn Demon Discussion

CaptSillva on EDH - Razaketh, the Foulblooded

Hmm it seems you are already running Thespian's Stage and Urborg, so have you considered running Dark Depths? Stage combos with it and Urborg makes it tap for mana if nothing else. You could also run Vampire Hexmage to double up your combo potential.

You could also consider Kagemaro, First to Suffer and Demon of Dark Schemes for board control options. As well as Shadowborn Demon and Reaper from the Abyss for single target removal. Then maybe Demon of Death's Gate as an early game house.

Suggestions for your mana base:

Remove: Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Warped Landscape, and Mind Stone. Add: Myriad Landscape, Cabal Coffers, High Market, and Charcoal Diamond.

Tower of Calamities depends a lot of mana to destroy only one creature. Try Black Market in its place.

Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).

34 lands is simply too few in my opinion so think about cutting Ascendant Evincar, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Nightmare, and Shadowborn Demon for 4 Swamps.


Suggestions for draw and card advantage:

It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.


Suggestions for removal spells:

Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.

Shadowborn Demon looks like it would be perfect for you.

Cool deck, but you have some cards in there that have red and blue in the mana costs. Depends on your playgroup since its a casual format.

Some suggestions:

Demon of Dark Schemes can get some demons back from the yard possibly, also a mini-board sweep.

Demon of Wailing Agonies Really good in commander

Eater of Hope Kills stuff, regenerates

Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis Makes defending player sac a creature when it attacks alone

Overseer of the Damned kills a creature when it ETB and makes zombie tokens

Pestilence Demon Pestilence attached to a demon, whats not to love!

Shadowborn Demon Kills a non demon when it ETB

Iamdoomitself on When demons come knocking

I agree with previous comments mana curve is huge.You can smooth it out further with an Expedition Map to fish out the coffers, Wayfarer's Bauble, Crypt Ghast.I know its probable just for fun but Lord of the Pit, Liege of the Pit and Shadowborn Demon are all really bad... I suggest replacing them with Harvester of Souls, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, and one of the mana accelerators

Spirits on Angels, Demons, and Dragons OMFG!

Nice Kaalia of the Vast deck. +1. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

Not a big fan of Shadowborn Demon how about an Iona, Shield of Emeria or are you not that #evil

Aurelia, the Warleader is a good friend to Kaalia of the Vast with Dragon Mage.

Demonic Tutor gives you whatever card you need, Highly recommended.

Where's the Master of Cruelties your being WAY to nice to your opponents :)

spotmarkedx on GhoulCaller Gisa (First EDH Deck)

Aside from the Phyrexian Dreadnought already mentioned, you wouldn't go wrong adding a number of the under-costed black creatures (demons mostly) that come with a significant downside to offset the difference.

For example, Abyssal Persecutor is a 6/6 flying trampler until you want to kill someone, then it becomes a horde of zombies with Gisa. Or, cast Demonlord of Ashmouth, immediately sac it to Gisa, then use one of the zonbies to pay its cost when it enters the battlefield again due to undying. See also: Desecration Demon, Grinning Demon, Master of the Feast, Shadowborn Demon.

I also suggest cards with beneficial x/x power toughness. Such as Sewer Nemesis, Nightmare, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Mortivore, Squelching Leeches.

TheDuggernaught on Mimeoplasm Budget/Casual

5 months ago

Granted my Mimeoplasm deck is much more combo oriented, some cards I have found to be super useful fir Mimeoplasm are Pathrazer of Ulamog, Mindshrieker, Consuming Aberration, Corpse Connoisseur, Havengul Lich, Sepulchral Primordial, Diluvian Primordial, Sphinx Ambassador, Compulsive Research, Thirst for Knowledge, Sultai Ascendancy, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy, Shadowborn Demon, Compulsion, Frantic Search, Forbidden Alchemy, Cyclonic Rift, Alchemist's Refuge, and Progenitor Mimic. Some of those aren't the cheapest things in the word, although I did try to exclude things that I think are a bit pricey. I guess it depends on your budget though. I have also had a lot of success with Worm Harvest.
