Creature — Eye Bat
When this dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield), learn. (You may reveal a lesson card you own from outside the game and put it into your hand, or discard a card to draw a card.)

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.

Not to nitpick but two creatures in Grubbernaut's card list are illegal in this format. Eyetwitch can include discard. And Gingerbrute can provide lifegain. But your plan for cheapest, fastest creatures with some utility is a good plan.

Good flavour — love kitchen table casual! I'm was doing the legwork for an eye-themed deck after stumbling across Evil Eye of Orms-by-Gore, so you're helping to give some good leads. There's a new Eyetwitch that could work for a 1-drop, and a Revealing Eye that fits as well.

Thanks GrimlockVIII! I agree with you completely! I have been struggling with what creature to place in that slot. I have been play testing Eyetwitch and that seems to work well. If you have any suggestions I’d appreciate it!

Thanks for posting, droslag, and good question. Answer is simple; we aren’t interested in the Lessons. We want Eyetwitch to meet a quick demise so that we capitalize on the other portion of his death trigger, the discard/draw effect. The more creatures in our graveyard to exile with Ludevic the better; a dead Eyetwitch plus a creature from our hand gives us a net gain, plus a replacement draw that’s sure to be of value.
Edit- yup, you nailed it GrimlockVIII. Also, I missed Environmental Sciences while I was building this. I have an app I use while deck building and had set the parameters to search for Lesson cards that were either or ...I forgot about the colorless option. I’ll throw it in the maybeboard for now.
