Rite of Belzenlok Discussion

Wassy on Clerics pray for demons (BW)

2 weeks ago

Had a somewhat similar deck based on Scion of Darkness and Dark Supplicant but found it to be very clunky to play. The Scion was always destroyed and cost too many clerics to work regularly. Looking over your deck you are at least 1-2 lands short and I would increase Orzhov Basilica to 4 of to give you a pseudo extra land (on average every second game when you should see it). Academy Rector doesn't work in this deck, its a 4 drop creature with few sac outlets to grab 1 of 2 enchantments, one of which is a 4 drop in itself. I would just play 4 Rite of Belzenlok which ties in well with Rotlung Reanimator and Twilight Prophet. Doing that makes Overwhelming Splendor too expensive to cast which you can replace with an extra Cabal Therapy (I would consider replacing Cabal Therapy with Duress to protect your demons/key clerics/general board position unless you know what decks you will be up against most of the time).

I recently revisited my deck after Rite of Belzenlok and Archfiend's Vessel which I think has given a more reliable deck. Moved the focus to a wider range of demon threats which I think has helped. Every demon has it's day if you want to check it out.

If you want to put it in, take it out for Rite of Belzenlok

Have a Similar Demon worship/human sacrifice with some extra synergies. Basically, it generates small tokens to feed the demons, but also generates huge flyers. Starting with 2x Ravenous Demon  Flip and 3x Demon of Catastrophes, cheap and lethal, just because you can get short of tokens. 2 copies of Rite of Belzenlok, wich generates creatures to sacrifice and at the third turn since you cast cast it, generates a huge flying 6/6 Demon token with trample. My main token generator creatures are 4 copies of Doomed Traveler and 2 copies of Thraben Doomsayer. I use 2x Skirsdag Flayer as a crature removal wich at the same time triggers Skirsdag High Priest ability (4 copies). Which is great. Tokens generators spells:3x Lingering Souls, 4x Gather the Townsfolk, 2xPromise of Bunrei, 1x Increasing Devotion.Some more synergies: 2 copies of Teysa Karlov, witch doubles tokens when Doomed Traveler dies, also giving vigilance and lifelink to ALL you tokens, including the demons generated from Rite of Belzenlok and Skirsdag High Priest, which is pretty solid. The rest of the Deck includes removals: 2x Bone Splinters, 4x Mortify. 2x Altar's Reap also feed the Sacrifice/Trigger mechanism giving extra cards. 2x Westvale Abbey  Flip for flavour and, of course, a 9/9 flying, lifelink, Indestructible hasted finisher!

Hey nice deck man, I've been brewing my own Aristocrats deck & saw yours. Here are a few ideas from my Gatherer research that should be affordable:

Reassembling Skeleton Rite of Belzenlok Spark Harvest instead of Final Payment or Mortify Midnight Reaper instead of Dawn of Hope Plaguecrafter (maybe a sideboard card)

I also really like Gutterbones in this deck, I feel like having 4 more one-drops would really help get more consistent fast starts with a turn 1 creature.

Finally, if I was going to take out one thing it would probably be Ethereal Absolution, it just seems a little too high on the curve for this deck & the -1/-1 is situational. Probably better out of the side against control or something like that. Good luck with the deck! :)

Hey! Looks good overall, but a couple comments.

First, your CSS is broken - several of the images etc don't appear right in your deck description :(

Second, I've got a mono-black token-based deck of my own, which I'll link here. It's got a lot of useful sources of tokens you might find helpful!

Notable exclusions -- Tombstone Stairwell , Rite of Belzenlok (which has awesome flavor with Whisper too), Ophiomancer , Necropotence (note that you can reanimate in response to the exile trigger), Entomb ...

I don't know what your budget is here, but I can give more suggestions if you're interested :)

Have you considered swapping out something like Rite of Belzenlok for Mastermind's Acquisition or a more expensive $ tutor? Mastermind's Acquisition can fetch the Rite from your collection and lets you use a sideboard for stax hoser cards and things like Deathgrip . I'd also recommend Glistening Oil and Grafted Exoskeleton for more infect if you feel like you want to run more. They are re-useable and if you are going for infect I feel like you should just go for it. Its going to tilt people regardless. The Blight Dragon has haste and would be a solid addition as well.

vincilios: I was considering it actually! I do have an extra foil copy now, since he came out of Hapatra (ironically enough, to make room for Yawgmoth in the 99).

Abzkaban: Rite of Belzenlok gives me 5 bodies, two of which are immediate - I'm generally pretty happy with it, and it gets BETTER if I speed up the clock with Yawgmoth's proliferate. Dictate of Erebos is so good though, especially EOT...

Here are my thoughts. I’d cut Rite of Belzenlok and Dictate of Erebos if you’re still looking for more room. I’ve never been a big fan of sagas personally. This only gives you three bodies to sac and isn’t abusable like the creatures you can revive. Not only that but you run the risk of speeding up its clock when you proliferate with Yawgmoth. You already have Grave Pact, and I understand wanting to double that ability, but with the control package you’re running I think you’ll do fine with just the one.
