Demon of Catastrophes Discussion

mobizque on <20$ Undying demons

I'm building a similar deck with Demon of Catastrophes and Feaster of Fools (which you might consider--with Devour 2 it can get big, and with Convoke it can come out as early as turn 3).

Fetid Imp seems weak here. Your demons will dominate the sky, so you might consider more sacrificial creatures like Festering Mummy or Undead Augur .

All that said, I'm putting Tragic Slip in my deck. It's definitely > the Dismember I'm running.

+1!

The biggest potential weakness I see in this deck is that there's a sort of "cost void" between your 1-drops and your big demons, and the biggest threats in the deck may not be the most mana efficient. For instance, I'd probably run Desecration Demon or Demon of Catastrophes in a sacrifice deck instead of Goremand . I imagine he's a pet card for you though, so maybe you could lean more into the reanimator angle to cheat him in quickly. Most modern versions seem to be running Goryo's Vengeance into Griselbrand and praetors still, but I tend to prefer the budget alternatives. Some additions to Blood for Bones and Gravewaker are repeated activation creatures like Hell's Caretaker and Whisper, Blood Liturgist . Unburial Rites is also fairly popular if you don't mind splashing white. For the discard, staples include Thoughtseize , Collective Brutality , Ransack the Lab , and Mind Rake . For sacrifice synergy, I think Smallpox and Sinister Concoction could be options too. I'm also a big fan of creatures that mill for this role such as Stitcher's Supplier (which helps to play the very useful Gravecrawler ) or the green Satyr Wayfinder and all its Mulch brethren. Reanimator lets you play other big threats too, some of which could be Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Eater of Hope , or Xathrid Demon to stick with the demon theme. Another card I see as being pretty expensive here is Soul Foundry . The aforementioned Hell's Caretaker can usually produce a similar result without the 1 mana tax every turn. Furthermore, the tokens it creates could interfere with Grim Haruspex , a card draw engine I usually prefer to Dark Prophecy (or maybe Harvester of Souls if I'm feeling spicy.) There is some downside in cutting noncreature permanents for their creature counterparts, so choose the option that is being hit by removal the least in your meta. If creature hate is a problem, maybe a Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos could dissuade your opponents.

The first thing that comes to mind for me is Hatred. This can easily take out a player, and plays even better if you have a lifelink creature.

Jet Medallion seems like a great card to have in your deck, since you will probably play several spells a turn.

Black Market seems like it would generate a lot of value for you.

Wound Reflection also seems perfect for finishing off opponents.

In terms of aggressive, powerful creatures, I think you are missing a few key cards that would really make this deck scary.

Phyrexian Obliterator redefines what a good aggressive black card is.

Skirsdag High Priest is very easy to activate in Commander.

Loyal Subordinate represents heaps of damage with your commander out.

Rotting Regisaur is very much worth the discard for his body.

Woe Strider should make its way to the maindeck.

Abyssal Persecutor is excellent and even has great applications for multiplayer.

Demon of Catastrophes can eat up a useless creature in exchange for a 6/6 flying trample.

Doom Whisperer is great value.

Archfiend of Despair is the perfect late game finisher for you.

In terms of cuts, I don't think a lot of your very small creatures will get very far in a game of commander. I would cut the weaker ones like Carrier Thrall, Sanitarium Skeleton, Lazotep Reaver, Priest of the Forgotten Gods, Reassembling Skeleton and Tattered Mummy.

Tyrant's Choice seems like it won't often do what you want it to. I am sure you can find better removal than Defile. Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper also seem a bit underpowered for Commander.

Ups! Sorry for not sharing the link before.

Thanks for your suggestions. I wish I had a Dragonspeaker Shaman. Unfortunately my current stock is very very limited. I think I have a Skyscanner and a Pendulum of Patterns, but I felt so out of theme. I could add them to the deck anyway after I run some more tests. I'll also check that aristocrat thing (I've just learned what it meant), maybe I have something in my stock, like a Demon of Catastrophes, it has flying so it will haste with Dragon Tempest. On my God, thanks a lot seshiro_of_the_orochi!

droslag on Erebos, The Master of Cruelties

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!

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.
