As an additional cost to cast Fling, sacrifice a creature.
Fling deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to any target (creature, player or planeswalker).

You're right that Dracoplasm uses last known information, just like Fling and other similar effects. When the text makes reference to the "sacrificed creatures" (the current cleaned-up text just says "those creatures"), it means the creature objects that were sacrificed as they existed at the time, the same as any other effect that uses information about a sacrificed object to determine its results.
Neither the original printed text nor the current text is written in a way that would exclude any other P/T altering effects or only look at the printed characteristics of the card that were sacrificed. If Dracoplasm's ability was written in a way to exile the sacrificed creatures and reference the P/T of "the exiled cards" then the result would be what your friend is saying, but that's not how this ability works.

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?

this is a hilarious list i love it!(i dont think i knew Glyph of Destruction was a card lol). i have to second Gattison's mention of Soul's Fire as its the only reasonable one i know of and allows you to deal 20 damage without a second Glyph of Destruction. Do keep in mind that if your opponent kills your wall in response Soul's Fire will fizzle whereas Fling involves the creature in the casting cost of the spell, meaning your wall is dead before your opponent has a chance to interact with it. There are technically some other cards similar to Soul's Fire like Gravitic Punch but unless you have specific synergies, they will generally be a worse version of Soul's Fire

@jdogz32 Go for it. I have a few decks that already abuse either Fling type spells or self sacrificing creatures, but I haven’t yet figured out a way to bypass the main issue with theft cards—it’s a crapshoot if the deck you’re facing down will have anything worth stealing. For that reason I don’t think a deck with this theme will ever be remotely competitive. If the right combination of theft/creatures are featured in a new set, then maybe.
I do have a deck in the works that’s about as close to this theme as I can get while being semi viable, but it lacks the theft element. It should be ready in a week or so.

Thanks for posting, idfkgabe. Fling or Thud would definitely be better here, but I wanted to avoid those two since that would make Lyzolda, the Blood Witch kind of irrelevant. She’s the card I wanted to build around, so I didn’t want to undermine that.

How has the deck been running irl? I got inspired recently to try to brew in legacy with Fling and Phyrexian Dreadnought was wondering if you played legacy and if you happen to have any ideas on a deck like that. I am still amazed by this deck btw. Seems a whole lot fun to pilot!

Legendary Creature - Giant Demon
Whenever a creature you don't control is dealt excess damage, goad it.
Whenever a goaded creature attacks one of your opponents, its controller loses 1 life and discards a card, and you gain 1 life and draw a card.
Create a creature with a Fling-like effect.
