I really like the concept of the deck - get a big bruiser like Daemogoth Titan out and feed him tokens to keep him happy! The problem is... I don't feel like your deck is quite geared towards that. Firstly, you only have one Titan - in a 68 card deck, how often do you expect him to show up? The other is that I think you might need a few more ways to make tokens or otherwise low-value creatures: a number of your critters, like Dragonsguard Elite, Moldering Karok and Augmenter Pugilist  Flip are quite nice but maybe take away from the focus of the deck.

I'd definitely lock in three of the Titan as well as a full four of Eyetwitch, who can be fed to your big guy and lets you keep your lessons in the sideboard rather than taking up space in the deck. Other good ways to pump out tokens include Awakening Zone, Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia and Creakwood Liege, depending on your budget. With all these tokens flying around, Bastion of Remembrance or Zulaport Cutthroat are options for trimming your opponent's life down, and Vampiric Rites gives you a way to draw into what you need if you have a bunch of tiny little creatures but no way to win.

One other issue with the Titan is that while he is fantastically big for his cost, he has no Trample. If your opponent is also playing tokens, they can hold your Demon at bay all day with a procession of 1/1 chumps. Some good ways to get your Titan past chump blockers include Rancor, O-Naginata and the two-birds-with-one-stone Fists of Ironwood.

The last thing I'd suggest is more general advice. Whenever possible, always try to get your deck down to 60 cards. It will really make your game a lot more consistent - and don't forget you can keep Lessons in your sideboard for all those Learn cards to pull out! The other is that you'll want more lands, even with the deck trimmed down to 60 cards. 24 lands is kind of the classic guideline, but you might be able to trim down to 23 or even 22 if you ensure the Daemogoth is the most mana-intensive card in there.

Anyways, I hope the advice in here helps you out! The Daemogoth is a very intriguing card to build around and I wish you all the best in piloting this deck.

I've looked into this and I really like the path of +1/+1 counters. There are of course plenty of ways to get counters on your creatures in this deck (primarily Willowdusk), so capitalizing off of that with effects that bolster any creatures with counters or give them trample it pretty darn powerful.

First off, the trample givers: Bramblewood Paragon, Gnarlid Colony, Pridemalkin, and Crowned Ceratok.

And some other +1/+1 tribal engines: Mer-Ek Nightblade, Oona's Blackguard, Skyclave Shadowcat, and Tenured Inkcaster who, in particular, is very good in this deck.

And some support for the counters: Armorcraft Judge, Gladehart Cavalry, and Inspiring Call.

On a different note, giving your creatures lifelink in this deck is insane. Swing with something big to permanently double it's P/T with Willowdusk. Some good cards for that are: Alchemist's Gift, Essence Infusion, Rush of Vitality, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord, Poet's Quill, and especially Whip of Erebos. Essence Harvest is also in the same vein.

Lastly, one nasty thing you could do would be untapping Willowdusk to use her ability twice in a turn for exponential gains. Ideally, this would be done with cards like: Magewright's Stone, Puppet Strings, Quirion Ranger, Seeker of Skybreak, and Thousand-Year Elixir.

I also want to quickly touch on the other side of Willowdusk's ability with Aetherflux Reservoir Which would let you instakill an opponent then give one of your creatures +50/+50.

As for what to remove, there are quite a few cards I feel are pretty unsynergistic here like Dragonsguard Elite and Witherbloom Pledgemage as this isn't really a spellslinger deck. I also dont see the point of reclamation effects like Deadly Brew, Retrieve, Healing Technique, Dollhouse of Horrors, The Underworld Cookbook, or You Happen on a Glade. Lastly, Roil Spout just isn't legal (probably an error lol).

Hi, I built this list before Strixhaven and now I wanna make room for Dragonsguard Elite and Double Major but I don’t know what to cut for them.

Other general tips/suggestions are welcome as well!

A solid card option I think you may want a couple copies of in your deck would be Charge Through . This card will give you a combat trick that can give trample to your creature for a surprise lethal hit with your Dragonsguard Elite or just serve as a cheap cantrip spell to trigger your cards in play. The spell also doubles as a learn card allowing you to discard draw or grab a lesson card from your side deck. You can take advantage of this to add cards like Containment Breach , Expanded Anatomy , Introduction to Annihilation , or even Mascot Exhibition to give you some card options that may help you pending on board state situation.

Some other options you may want to consider for your deck are Lovestruck Beast and Brazen Borrower . The option to use them for the adventure can be useful for trigger the magecraft skills. Both have a different purpose to be useful as Lovestruck Beast if you lose the 1/1 it makes a good wall and strong fighter target for Blizzard Brawl ; Brazen Borrower serves as a useful disruption spell that can be a decent flying aggressor.

Out of the cards you are running, Quandrix Apprentice seems like your weakest link as most of your spells are reactive defense spells. This means you are not likely just throwing your spells out to help you draw the lands with their skill.

Hope these suggestions help.
