Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Legendary Creature — Demon

Flying, trample

Whenever an opponent searches their library, that player sacrifices a creature and loses 10 life.

Whenever another creature dies, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield, tokens are put into the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

Okay, let's take a look at some of these. First note is, budget isn't really a concern, because pretty much all of my games are online these days, through servers like Cockatrice.

Master of Cruelty, Demonlord Belzenlok, and Burning-Rune Demon were all on my short list. Master of Cruelty is a little too build-around for my preference in this deck, but it's a great card. Belzenlok and B-R Demon would help to give it consistency, and Belzenlok in particular has a good chance of finding its way back in.

I had overlooked Dragon Tempest, so that's definitely going in.

I'll play around with Raphael, Fiendish Savior, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, and Rakshasa Debaser and see what they do for this deck. I especially like the lifelink, since this deck plays more recklessly than my usual style.

This is my first Demon tribal deck, so I'm still working out the details. The 6-8 mana slots fill up fast. Incidentally, how do you submit a deck to EDHrec?

Once again, thanks for the suggestions!

Wabbajacke , Ob Nixilis, Unshackled actually makes a real nasty combo with Opposition Agent but Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is the card I already own so that's what's in the deck for the time being at least

I like the Theme and Powerwolf, so + 1 from me ;)

Is there a reason why you use Ob Nixilis, the Fallen over Ob Nixilis, Unshackled? In my opinion, it synergizes very well with Varragoth, maybe because you need to chose an Opponent for its boast ability?

Niko9, Nixilis obtained The Chain Veil through a pact with one or more Demons, wanting everlasting war and power. It was gifted to him and, much like how the super soldier serum amplifies not just the physical characteristics, but the mental and emotional as well, so too does TCV. It drove him absolutely mad, and his new passion for death caused an endless rampage across his world where he lead armies of demons as their General. This was Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath. After this, he had fulfilled his end of the bargain, and as the sole survivor of his world he found no purpose. TCV had corrupted him fully, and the stress of having nothing left to murder ignited his spark.

When on Zendikar, the magics of that world corrupted his form and destroyed his spark, turning him into Ob Nixilis, Unshackled. He vowed to murder every last thing on Zendikar until his spark reignited, which to date appears to have been the only Planeswalker to successfully ignite, lose and reignite their own spark.

Karn doesn't count in this context because he was gifted I think a total of three? Urza's, Venser and the Goblin Planeswalker for a day - Slobad.

If I cast Winds of Abandon for it's overload cost with Ob Nixilis, Unshackled in play, would an opponent lose 10 life for each land they search for or just once for all?
