This is my tribal demons deck. Rakdos, Lord of Riots is definitely most efficient as an artifact or eldrazi general since he can make your creatures totally free but I don't like doing the most common archetype for a deck or necessarily the most obvious or easy routes. Demons have high mana costs that in this deck are lowered via the general's static ability to only cost their colored mana costs. This makes the deck more fair, definitely more slow, really flavorful, and to me, more fun. I've tried to squeeze more demon-flavor in and would like to add more burn and things like Blasphemous Act, Bonfire of the Damned, Volcanic Fallout , Demonfire , and Banefire but just haven't found the space. This deck has been rebuilt a number of times but always as tribal demons, so maybe it's time to just build a second deck in truer as this deck mostly just splashes .

Also, many of the card choices going into this deck were made because they're personal favorites and contribute to high devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Abhorrent Overlord.

I love the demons theme, but honestly this deck is not making efficient use of red. I would recommend removing red entirely, and switching your general to something like Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis or one of the Ob Nixilis cards you have. This change would greatly affect your devotion power, as well as your mana doubling from Nirkana Revenant

Not something I'm interested in at all, as I have a deck in every color combination for EDH almost and this is what I chose for . Rakdos is the king of the demons so he's the perfect general and I don't want to attack with just one creature a turn anyways. I denoted that red is more of a splash in this deck and maybe as they make more red demon cards in the future I can add more red in. But there's no need to make it purely black for my purposes and the devotion is already incredibly high. The two mana doublers already do plenty of work, especially with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth obviously. Really looking for help with the html.

You always make the most interesting decks and this is no exception. Good work :-) Unfortunately, I am computer illiterate so I cannot be of help with your coding.

thanks as always for your appreciation and encouragement Lilbrudder. If I can be anything I'd like to be an inspiration for people to build for fun and deep, innovative synergy over efficient win-at-all-costs type decks. it's nice to have a kindred spirit on here who can appreciate that.

Ender666666!!!! I got it to work by accidentally removing the /> termination character and leaving the script open. Idk why that works but it's all good now!

It also works on mobile I just realized. All of your decks have the image in the description on mobile for me.

I couldn't see the backgrounds in my decks on mobile. I just removed the /> and now it shows up... Bizarre

December 22, 2016 9:48 a.m.

Ikr. I can't believe that's how I accidentally figured it out. But now all my decks are beautiful haha

Let's add to the weird quotient... Making that change enables the images in mobile for me, but breaks them on a desktop.

wtaf dude. html code shouldn't work differently for different users on different platforms. I wonder if html is interpreted or implemented slightly different in Canada and the USA. the transparent text boxes don't work on mobile for me either.

December 22, 2016 12:18 p.m.

How did you make the boxes transparent ?

< link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href=""

Just remove the space before the beginning character and link and it should work

December 23, 2016 2:10 a.m.

Thank you so much! one other thing if you don't mind. How do you advertise your decks on the side like that?

December 23, 2016 2:14 a.m.

Hmm, I'm also having trouble with the transparency still. I'm not sure if i'm deleting the wrong spaces? I'm also on pc fyi

December 23, 2016 2:23 a.m.

as you can see from the comments above, Ender and I have been having significant difficulties getting the html code to work properly. the space you have to delete is between < and link at the beginning. you may also need to include the termination character /> at the very end of the last line. for some reason some people have to include that while others (me) don't. best of luck

December 23, 2016 2:41 a.m.

Yep, the termination character is necessary for me. Got it to work, and figured out the deck advertisements just a few minutes ago. Thanks again
