griffstick thanks! That’s exactly the type of advice I was looking for. I considered Harvester of Souls but I thought it wouldn’t be powerful enough, Deathrender really changes it tho. I’ve got Dark-Dweller Oracle in the same role, but that card can be risky because of the exile too, so this could be perfect, thank you. :)

Another combo I came up with that uses Mortuary is Deathrender + something that draws cards from a creature dying. Like Harvester of Souls a sac outlet of your choice like Ashnod's Altar + Mortuary. Making an infinite loop where you draw the creature you sacrificed and putting it back into play with Deathrender. You can kill the table with some really good enters the battlefield effects like Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

Hi! Thank you for creating this deck, i was looking for some cool demon deck, but only what i found were just decks filled with some expensive demons. However this deck has interesting engine in it that can cheat out demons or bring them back again from graveyard, and i love it! I'm playing it often, and still enjoying it. I made some personal changes, because not every card was available to me or i just wanted different demons there. :)

From sorcery i just cut out Duress, because i didn't need it, and it created space for more demons. :)

So for creatures: i kept all small dudes spawning small creatures - basically your nice cheating engine is kept untouched. However i made changes to some demons. Here is my list of demons:

  • one more Abhorrent Overlord because this card is fantastic in this deck as it spawns small creatures to sacrifice or chump block. So overall i have 2 of them in deck.

  • i kept Eater of Hope

  • i kept Kothophed, Soul Hoarder

  • i added 2x Overseer of the Damned because it creates more small creatures and can destroy enemy threat each time u pull him out.

  • added 2x Archfiend of Spite cuz he can be awesome blocker and also you can cheat him from hand as a surprise for its madness cost when you discard him with Call the Bloodline

  • added 1x Harvester of Souls as another card draw engine, and potential blocker for enormous creatures.

  • added 1x Lord of the Void cuz he is just so damn strong and people freak out when i pull him on board. :D

  • as an experiment i added 1x Desecration Demon but eventually i decided to remove him because if opponent have a lot of creatures, sacrificing one of them is not good enough for you and you have nor attacker or blocker. I put there 1x Griselbrand instead, because this deck lacks lifegain a little bit. I wish i could put there Westvale Abbey  Flip to get Ormendahl, Profane Prince but this card is unavailable for me.

Having Liliana's Contract as an alternate win condition is great, because some decks like to get tons of life, so with that you can surpass it.

Overall this deck performed very well for me, it is also good against mill, because if he mills your demons into your graveyard, you just need to pull them on board, you don't want to draw them anyways. :D

I think you're missing mana ramp mainly, Talisman of Hierarchy Orzhov Signet Solemn Simulacrum

you could also use more card draw Phyrexian Arena Harvester of Souls Grim Haruspex

also path's cousin Swords to Plowshares

Just be careful about the high cmc, Orzhov is really slow with ramp.

Thanks betomindslav!!

I do have some changes, although I haven't gotten around to updating the list yet - I'll hopefully get to that later this evening.

I haven't yet had a chance to test Gravebreaker Lamia yet, but at first glance it looks perfect for this deck - a Goblin Electromancer in black, almost. The tutor-to-the-graveyard ability is almost just icing on the cake - there aren't a lot of specific cards we're looking for in the yard (although if we've got a reanimation spell ready, nabbing Kokusho or Gray Merchant could always be fun). In fact, I think I'd most likely end up grabbing Succumb to Temptation, Dark Bargain, or Moonlight Bargain most often, since kill spells are plentiful and card draw is a little tighter.

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder I'm a little less enthusiastic about. I don't think it's bad, per se, I would just rather have Harvester of Souls, most of the time. They cost the same mana (and are pretty close in price too). Kothophed has a bigger body, but Flying is a better offensive mechanic, and Deathtouch is better on defense, which is where I find I usually want to be. More importantly, I think it's dangerous to put ourselves in a position where an opponent with a sac outlet might kill us, given how much life black already tends to pay to draw cards. So I'd say run it as a second copy of Harvester of Souls, but definitely don't drop Harvester for Kothophed.

One other card I want to talk about quickly, that (again...) I haven't had the chance to actually try out but looks sweet is the new Liliana, Waker of the Dead. Her +1 doesn't hurt us as much as it will hurt our opponents, since most of our cards can be cast from the grave anyway, and her -3 could prove to be solid removal, given that our graveyard should always be fairly well stocked. And of course, should we protect her long enough, her ult is game winning. I'm going to give her a try and see how she does!

I forgot to mention Harvester of Souls. A demon that Shadowborn Apostles can search for.
