From a competitive modern standpoint, all of the following cards have super-impressed me and felt a lot stronger than they first appear:

Of course, every card is bad in the wrong deck, and these are no exception. Most of these cards do feel like they require more support than the average competitively-played card, but i’ve certainly found them all to pull their weight above-and-beyond what i’d initially expected.

Some thoughts:

  • your mana curve is very high, and your land count is very low. I would suggest limiting yourself to only 4 cards that cost 4-or-more mana, and going up to 23 lands.

  • a bunch of your creatures aren’t helping you control the board. Deathgreeter only gains you life, and Mortician Beetle only gets bigger. I would focus on better payoffs for things dying. For example, Mayhem Devil would thrive in a deck like this.

  • I’d suggest ditching both of Virulent Swipe and Murder. Black has enough awesome killspells that you should never need to spend 3 mana for one. And Swipe feels redundant here with your existing amount of killspells.

     elliotmward97: So in the end, I actually cut Cunning Rhetoric for Imperial Recruiter. I was looking really hard at Mayhem Devil but thought it would be better to cut it for Agent of the Iron Throne once I pick one up.

     Rhetoric is good, but similar to other cards we've talked about in that it requires participation on behalf of my opponents.

     elliotmward97: So I actually used to run Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Tibalt's Trickery and Withering Boon but didn't feel I was getting enough mileage out of them. Imp's Mischief and Deflecting Swat are both great in any black and/or red deck, I just don't have a copy of either unfortunately lol.

     Hadn't considered Wishclaw Talisman but I'm definitely going to now! Especially with Goblin Engineer/Goblin Welder is a pretty nifty combo. =D

     Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos is a card I really liked thematically, but in practice just never felt good to draw. Even going infinite with Dockside and Technomancer requires your opponents to have at least seven Enchantments and Artifacts - which totally is gonna happen sometimes, but definitely not all the time.

     Chandra, Torch of Defiance is another card I used to run (and quite liked) but got cut for Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast as Daretti just synergized with the deck better. Chandra may yet make it back into the deck, though!

     As for cuts, I'm not totally sure but probably Hellkite Tyrant in favour of Ancient Copper Dragon. Tyrant is great but also extremely telegraphed. I'd probably look at Professional Face-Breaker or either Mayhem Devil or Nadier's Nightblade (depending on your playstyle) as a cut for Imperial Recruiter. And although Goblin Welder is a favourite of mine, it's likely on the chopping block if I do pick up a Ragavan.

Gleeock I agree that Zurzoth, Chaos Rider is great and overlooked and is actually my favorite devil..but the problem is he mono red (not a problem with me personally, i never agreed with wizards making devils rakdos in color and wish they stuck with mono-red) but unfortunately wizards did make devils rakdos so and some of the best devils (other than Zurzoth) are mono black like Stone-Throwing Devils, Asmodeus the Archfiend and Lorcan, Warlock Collector or are in rakdos colors like the new spoiled Mahadi, Emporium Master and Raphael, Fiendish Savior (which will be the go to commander for tribal now) and Mayhem Devil. Now they are great mono red devils to but unfortunately not enough to warrent a mono red build at this time (particularly the lack of good boss level mono red devils and decent low level devils)

Personally from a gameplay perspective I think any chaotic effect should be 7+ mana - they’re typically very big-risk-big-rewards effects, so they need to be costed at a point where they don’t mess with competitive play. So, from a design-perspective, i’m fine with Devils doing whatever chaotic nonsense they want at those higher cmc amounts.

As far as “realistic casting costs” go, I’m much more in favour of Devils maintaining their sacrifice-matters identity. I think Mayhem Devil is a great card and example of a Devil done well. Its effect is controllable, but also can incidentally really mess with what at opponent is doing.
