Jet Medallion Discussion

You may also want to consider the cards Jet Medallion and Pearl Medallion over the diamonds. Although not colored mana the cost reduction can be a net gain for you. I'm having trouble seeing Crawlspace being useful here. As you seem to want creatures to attack you to drain your opponent's life totals but this card seems to work against that.

To touch on DrukenReaps's point, IF you decide to go the route of a lot of Demons, I would encourage cost-reduction spells. These are basically all artifacts, which makes them easier to play with no color requirements. Cost reduction, in this case, is superior to ramp as you get multiple uses of value out of one static ability, rather than a single land or mana rock that, once tapped, is expended.
Spells such as these generate long lasting value as they reduce a Demon who's CMC might be 5 or 6 or 7 down to 3 or 4 or 5.
With tutors, you can ensure speed to find these and get them into play.
This is, of course, assuming you are leaning heavy on the Demons. I'd say 10+ Demons is on the extremely heavy side with perhaps 7 being moderately heavy.
But it all depends on precisely what your goal is with the deck. Are you wanting to cheat Demons out, or are you wanting to run Demon tribal and reliable play them?

More cuts/updates through discussion for more experienced players in this playstyle
why: Gearhulk is spot removal, a big recurable body, interacts with half the deck through trawler and gains life, Reaver costs cards and isn't a guarantee
why: The deck is fairly low to the ground as is, most spells are double costed secondly does nothing for the cost of the artifacts in he deck which are at this point in the build the backbone as such due to minimal value was cut for graveyard control, I choose the lantern over Tormod's Crypt for several reasons, those being; (1) the foil art is gorgeous, (2) hits all opponents yards at once, (3) exiles something on ETB and draws a card
why: This one was really hard, and is still really hard for me to justify. what i like about Szat is that it better synergies with Skullclamp , gives me fodder for Grave Pact , Ashnod's Altar , and Phyrexian Altar . Szat in an ideal situation allows me to draw up to 4 cards with clamp at no loss to a board state compared to Haruspex which is more defensive in terms of boards wipes spot removal etc. I still feel that Tevesh offers more to the deck however thus the decision
Why: the "oh shit" factor

I get the flexibility you're talking about in terms of Thespian's Stage in comparison. However ill keep that in mind when i comes to play testing when i get the ability to in the future.
Lotus Petal can be chained infinitely with the scrap trawler line thus another back up of infinite mana for Tergrid's Lantern . I don't like Bubbling Muck because of its symmetry as you've also noticed but did proxy in (until i can get my hands on one) the Jet Medallion
I like the idea of Blast Zone but can't justify the loss ill take as well since it effects the board
Syphon Mind was cut earlier because instead of a use once sorcery regardless of the "value" it accrues, Grim Haruspex is both more explosive in draw power and more easily recurable within the confines of both mono black, and the deck itself.
to note a conversation with some fellows from my play group however there will be a couple adjustments incoming and as follows,
the reasoning being, in an attempt to understand or prepare for the hypothetical weakness of the deck (aggro/token strategies) i've determined that adding some spot removal (lack of opponent having a choice) to accompany the sacrificial removal spells (opponent has the choice) as well as an additional boardwipe in case of "oh shit" moments that being said there is also the possibility that Grasp of Darkness may eventually be replaced by Executioner's Capsule due to it being both an artifact and recurable.
What are your thoughts?

Regarding swapping vesuva instead of thespian's stage, I like stage because it can copy anything anytime. I value the flexibility of it more than the mana it costs to activate. But thats personal preference.
Regarding Dreamstone for Lotus petal, I've never liked petal personally. One and done mana rocks are best used in cEDH decks or decks that can abuse card draw to make up for the disadvantage. I like Bubbling Muck , although it is symmetrical especially with urborg. Again, personal preference. Lastly, another option in this slot is Jet Medallion
Blast Zone - Deal with artifacts and enchantments
Syphon Mind - Draw 3, each opponent discards 1, you get their stuff. All for 4 mana, the value!
Budget per card? As I know chains would fit nicely with anvil and yawgmoth's will is just value.

Hey really cool deck, I'm testing a tymna/ravos hatebears deck rn and it feels pretty powerful! Two cards I'd really recommend you to try are Oketra's Monument and one of the medallions available here, Pearl Medallion and Jet Medallion (depending on the amount of each color you run). The cost reducing it's amazing with stony silence out, and the tokens of the monument are so good at triggering tymna!

Tutors are always a good thing in a deck that has any sort of strategy to focus on. So yes, I would run demonic, and if you can afford it Vampiric Tutor , Diabolic Intent , Grim Tutor , and if you want you can go with the budget Diabolic Tutor .
Feel free to post a link to you list in here and I will look too. We don't want you to go too overboard on the ramp etc, just make sure you have a good mix of the ramp that seems to work best for you. (Let me know how focused you want this deck to be etc.)

Corpse Knight synergizes nicely with the Thalisse you already have.
I'd remove Anointed Procession. Teysa as your commander does the same and more.
Ashen Rider is overcosted for what it does. I suggest removing it.
