Baloth Razer

Creature - Baloth (Because screw you Wizards, turn my boys into their own subtype already damn it!)

When Baloth Razer enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice a land. If you do, put a +1/+1 counter on it.

3/3


Idk man, feels kinda janky and pushed to me. Draft trap. Don't play. 0/10 would not recommend. Now if it were in Modern Horizons and you drafted a Wrenn and Six, OMG yes all of them.

Make another Draft trap.

  • A Draft trap is a card that seems good at face value. It has a decent mana cost and overall decent power. However, it requires a hurdle to overcome, often making it non-viable

An example: Demon of Catastrophes. 6/6 for 4cmc with two keyword abilities is awesome, but if your opponent counters or removes, you're now down two creatures. Not ideal.

you could use something better than rakdos charm to finish off the opponent, cus if they dont have a creature out that kinda sucks. Lightning Bolt is good in pretty much all decks . you might want more lands and maybe some more removal spells too. Go for the Throat , Doom Blade Cast Down Tragic Slip arent bad options.

Sign in Blood is good for card draw and you can make the opponent lose two life to also finish them off if master of cruelties hits

Crypt Ghast can be great for loads of mana

Westvale Abbey  Flip is an awesome land and if you end up getting out alot of clerics you can sac em.

Skirsdag High Priest is another cool cleric

some other cool demons are:

Bloodgift Demon he can also finish the game a turn after if master of cruelties hits

Master of the Feast

Demon of Catastrophes

Lord of the Void

Desecration Demon

Sire Of Insanity

Abhorrent Overlord

Have a Similar Demon worship/human sacrifice with some extra synergies. Basically, it generates small tokens to feed the demons, but also generates huge flyers. Starting with 2x Ravenous Demon  Flip and 3x Demon of Catastrophes, cheap and lethal, just because you can get short of tokens. 2 copies of Rite of Belzenlok, wich generates creatures to sacrifice and at the third turn since you cast cast it, generates a huge flying 6/6 Demon token with trample. My main token generator creatures are 4 copies of Doomed Traveler and 2 copies of Thraben Doomsayer. I use 2x Skirsdag Flayer as a crature removal wich at the same time triggers Skirsdag High Priest ability (4 copies). Which is great. Tokens generators spells:3x Lingering Souls, 4x Gather the Townsfolk, 2xPromise of Bunrei, 1x Increasing Devotion.Some more synergies: 2 copies of Teysa Karlov, witch doubles tokens when Doomed Traveler dies, also giving vigilance and lifelink to ALL you tokens, including the demons generated from Rite of Belzenlok and Skirsdag High Priest, which is pretty solid. The rest of the Deck includes removals: 2x Bone Splinters, 4x Mortify. 2x Altar's Reap also feed the Sacrifice/Trigger mechanism giving extra cards. 2x Westvale Abbey  Flip for flavour and, of course, a 9/9 flying, lifelink, Indestructible hasted finisher!

Bloodmire Thornbush

Creature - Plant (Rare)

Defender

Draft Bloodmire Thornbush face up.

Whenever Bloodmire Thornbush is drafted, the last person who drafted it gains control of all cards named Bloodmire Thornbush.

A deck may have any number of cards named Bloodmire Thornbush in it.

3/1


Inspired by Canal Dredger 's ability to force extra cards toward that player. I figure you probably are not going to see more than one Bloodmire Thornbush, but hey you never know. If it was printed as a bulk rare, that'd be really interesting.

Speaking of which, how about the next challenge is to make an interesting bulk rare. For example, Demon of Catastrophes is interesting as it is a giant 6/6 with Flying and Trample that costs just 4 CMC. Yes the sac cost is there, but sacrificing a small 1/1 for a giant 6/6 is amazing. I can't tell you how many of these bastards I pulled, but it was enough to run effectively in two different decks.

Awesome deck, like it a lot, have you ever considered putting Demon of Catastrophes with k'rrik his basically 2 mana and you could always sacrifice Endless Cockroaches or a zombie token and get a 6/6 flying trample which i quite threatening early game.

Don't add Heartless Summoning ; you're not playing with crazy expensive demons. I approve of Demon of Catastrophes as a secondary way to kill your own Abyssal Persecutor .

I vote Defile instead of Tragic Slip . Fungal Infection might be worth considering, because it can still stop a few critters in modern.

If you go with more sacrificing Sengir Autocrat and Rite of Belzenlok create lots of tokens that can be sacrificed, but are too mana-intensive for their effect. Maybe Doomed Dissenter , Lazotep Reaver or Orzhov Enforcer ? Bitterblossom is too far out of budget range, but for a consistent stream of sacrificable creatures Dreadhorde Invasion but be worth it.

RNR_Gaming so I would have to drop dire moon and griselbrand. If I added 4 heartless summoning I would still need 4 more cards, I was thinking maybe Plaguecrafter or Demon of Catastrophes
