Archfiend of Despair

Creature — Demon


Your opponents can't gain life.

At the beginning of each end step, each opponent loses life equal to the life that player lost this turn. (Damage causes loss of life.)

I'm considering swapping out Orcus, Prince of Undeath for Archfiend of Despair as it's a card you prefer to have in your hand to bring back your board, and that's less likely to occur if it's been milled to the graveyard. Thoughts?

This idea is simply hilarious, very cool find!

Archfiend of Despair is one hell of a card. Just imagine hitting it with Gyruda and cloning it afterwards. It's basically tailor-made for the deck.

I’ve got two games in with this deck so far at my LGS. Already got some choice changes to make such as adding Reverse the Sands, and Mischievous Poltergeist.

Viscera Seer is a cut option to me.

I don’t plan to use enchantress draw package here.

Glacial Chasm also will be in here. The cumulative upkeep will deplete me while everything else protects me.

Wound Reflection is also on table as an option, but I’d prefer creature heavier effects. This means Archfiend of Despair is a viable addition, but I need to be careful of my mana curve when considering this.

Curiosity on Vial Smasher seems like it'd be good, especially considering that you have a lot of instants.

You might dig these too: Archfiend of Despair, Fiendish Duo, Gratuitous Violence, Angrath's Marauders

Rhox Faithmender is a creature version of Boon Reflection, Archfiend of Despair is a creature version of Wound Reflection, and Nyxbloom Ancient is (almost) a creature version of Mana Reflection, so I am now wondering when there shall be creature versions of the two remaining cards in the "reflection" cycle: Rage Reflection and Thought Reflection.

Avatar of Slaughter is similar to rage reflection, but is not a perfect creature version of it, since it affects all creatures and also forces them to attack, and I wish to see a creature that has exactly the same rules text as the enchantment. There is no creature version of Thought Reflection, as far as I am aware.

What does everyone else say about this? Will there every be creature versions of Rage Reflection and Thought Reflection?

What do you think about the demon Sower of Discord? He can help us finish the game with Fiery Emancipation/Archfiend of Despair. How has Rakdos, the Showstopper played out for you so far? Is he worth it?

In your deck description you write that Pestilence Demon is for controlling token decks. Has he any other use?

Would Mox Diamond be a good addition to the deck to come back after our lands are gone?
