I cast Claim the Firstborn on creature(1/1), then equip with Grafted Wargear (4/3), attack and finish with Fling for 4 dmg. But my friend said that Dracoplasm is not working that way, it check stats on that creature card. (no bonus stats for equipment, aura, counters,...) Dracoplasm is 0/0 on card, and if i sacrifice it for another Dracoplasm, then "New one " have same stats as first Dracoplasm or it become 0/0?

I second the idea of looking into a sacrifice-matters strategy. It's a good archetype for Rakdos that can be played on a low budget in casual settings. In my deck, Sacrifice in Flame, I make use of free sacrifice outlets like Viscera Seer or Carrion Feeder to get value out of sacrificing things, especially if those things are actually my opponent's creatures stolen via Act of Treason effects like Kari Zev's Expertise, Claim the Firstborn, or Bloody Betrayal. You can also sac for damage with Thud, Rite of Consumption, and other Flings, something that makes big cards with downside like Abyssal Persecutor, Desecration Demon, and Goldnight Castigator much better without needing a Harmless Offering or the like. As you can see, demons often take a starring role in such decks and from what you have here, it does look like you enjoy demons. The tribe isn't super well supported, but you could take a look at Raphael, Fiendish Savior or Liliana's Contract.

A random person on the internet said "at the beginning of the end step: Happens every end step, so if you skip your own, it will just happen again at your opponent's end step."

- Yeah if worded like this I would say Obeka wouldn't work but none of my cards have that text. The key difference is that my cards say "at the beginning of the NEXT end step". With this wording I can let my end step (the NEXT end step) begin where all the triggers are put on the stack then use Obeka to exile all of the triggers. Same story with Last Chance because that has a trigger that is exile-able (but the old mtg wording does make it weird - I looked into it though and it is a delayed trigger which Obeka can utilize). The MTG rules are very specific about the two terms in Obeka's text being duration effects that will end regardless of how the turn ends. So things like Claim the Firstborn don't work with Obeka.

Yeah fuck Blightsteel, you're right. I had him in because honestly I am worried about my win con here just because there isn't really a super clear route to victory on paper. I can take a bunch of turns and draw a bunch of cards but there are only so many scary things I can do with all that time and all those cards. Every game will be different that's for sure but the main theme is having fun with time. Which is a Charlie deck staple

It looks like this deck could use Thunderkin Awakener to reanimate Lightning Skelemental and Ashenmoor Liege. Also in modern Claim the Firstborn is heads and shoulders better than Act of Treason, so you should play 4. Actually Kari Zev's Expertise should replace Act of Treason entirely. Really cool deck!

Bone Shards definitly is a valid card for this deck, but I prefer Bedevil, because it can also target artifacts and planeswalkers, and because with Priest of Forgotten Gods, the enemys sacs thier creatures too. If there still are creatures, I use Act of Treason or Claim the Firstborn to steal it, and sac it to Village Rites for card draw or the Priest to fuel the engine.
