Ormendahl, Profane Prince Discussion

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 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

When transformed creatures leave the battlefield for any reason, flicker, etc, they transform back to their original face. Eg, Ravager of the Fells turns back into Huntmaster of the Fells Flip if it goes to the graveyard/exile/ flicker and et again.

This deck is themed to represent the Boros legion coming together with the other guilds to defend Ravnica. That's why I decided to include a permanent of each color to represent this unity: ( Vexing Shusher for green, Saheeli, Sublime Artificer for blue, & Ormendahl, Profane Prince for black.) So while it is primarily focused on red and white cards, it brings assistance from permanents of other colors as well.

Btw I decided to replace Wind-Scarred Crag with Inspiring Vantage rather than Sunbaked Canyon because I don't like to control permanents that deal damage to me, aside from Sacred Foundry . That Five-Alarm Fire seems pretty cool too.

8 cards? Well My choices are as follows, it's certainly a hard choice to narrow all of my favorites down. I have been playing since Journey into Nyx.
Prophet of Kruphix - Was one of the leading cards in my first ever Magic deck that I built to play casually and for a time I played it in my first commander deck led by Vorel of the Hull Clade until it's later banning.
Ugin, the Spirit Dragon - One of my favorite planeswalker cards of all time that I play both in my modern tron deck as well as Atraxa, Praetors' Voice commander deck. Can turn a game around so easily, his power cannot be denied.
Westvale Abbey Flip - Was a card that I built an earlier casual standard deck around involving Blisterpod , Cryptolith Rite , and other eldrazi scion generators to flip this card into Ormendahl, Profane Prince . If that wasn't possible, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger was another card that you could ramp into from tapping and then sacrificing the scions.
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - I had one of these first in my above mentioned casual deck that was mostly simic goodstuff, and even after that I made a place for it in a Vorel of the Hull Clade , Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck alongside the other praetors for flavour and now he resides in my Kruphix, God of Horizons deck where one of my favorite things to do with him is cheat him into play with Natural Order to make tons of mana for cost cards or Helix Pinnacle .
Winding Constrictor - Led a former standard deck of mine between Aether Revolt up until the later rotation all around +1/+1 counters. decks were all that I played in standard between Kaladesh to Guilds of Ravnica, only now with Ravnica Allegiance have I finally played a deck in different colours. I still have one in my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck for now until I convert it to superfriends fully with War of the Spark.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - I played this card a ton when it was in standard and I have held onto my two copies of the card which see a bit of commander play in my Edgar Markov and Oloro, Ageless Ascetic decks. Definitely one of my favorite black mythics of all time. I might in the future consider using them in a modern deck mainboard / sideboard if I ever build some deck in modern.
Cabal Coffers - There were so many cards besides this one I could still pick but this one really appeals to me as it embodies the power and greed that is black. Alongside Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth this is such good value, and I now use the card in two commander decks, Lord Windgrace and Gonti, Lord of Luxury .
Honourable Mentions of mine,

Thank you DRmagic2017
Selfless Spirit , Conqueror's Pledge , Pennon Blade and Stoneforge Masterwork are very good tips for which I am very grateful to you, I will definitely think about them I just have to think about which I throw out for them. Maybe you have some suitable suggestions.
Westvale Abbey Flip and everything that goes with it, I would immediately include it in the deck, but I believe that Ormendahl, Profane Prince is considered a black creature, so I can't include it in a white commander deck. For the same reason, I also decided against Archangel Avacyn Flip.

That's a really good point about Arena Rector I hadn't really thought about it that way. I'll definitely put her into a maybeboard and watch her price.
And that's a really good point about the ultimates. I guess I do put a lot of emphasis on them for the superfriends win-cons. But, at the very least, when playing cards like Inexorable Tide and Oath of Teferi (and potentially in the future The Chain Veil and Doubling Season ) it's definitely not something I can ignore.
I'm definitely going to put Yanling in the reconsider section with Ral, but I'm a little more cautious to do so. Taking her out also gets rid of a nice way to get your allies through and, in the best case scenario, a double-striking Ormendahl, Profane Prince .
But I think for that matter I also might reconsider Sorin, Solemn Visitor . Right now the only thing he does for the deck really is his ult, and because of that I guess I rarely play him in lieu of other walkers or creatures.
