Rune-Scarred Demon

Creature — Demon


When Rune-Scarred Demon enters the battlefield, search your library for a card, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

you're running emergent ultimatum in this. I would suggest also running Rune-Scarred Demon + Thassa's Oracle +Demonic Consultation as a combo wincon. that way you get the most out of that spell (in my opinion)

if i were to go that route i would ditch the servitude and just go B/g for my colors, Aetherworks Marvel is also something to look at when brewing your deck, esentially allowing you to do the apostle sacrificex2

my apostle deck runs light on demons actually, it has four Rune-Scarred Demon two Lord of the Void and a Griselbrand its not to hard to get all of those demons on board at once, and at that point you have probably already won, or somebody board wipes.

i also tried putting in demons that could not be cast like Master of Cruelties or Sire Of Insanity but they always somehow end up in my hand, and they arent to useful in this situation anyways

You'll like Sidisi, he is the best tutor in this deck for all the reasons DreadKhan said. Other good ones are Gravebreaker Lamia which is budget and recurable, Rune-Scarred Demon, which is recurable and a great beater, Buried Alive, and Woodland Bellower. Obviously, you just made major changes and won't want all of these right now, but tutors are great for eventually leveling things up down the road.

Phage is always fun, but you can't use her with ninjutsu or you lose the game and you don't have any cards that make her unblockable. Maybe Rune-Scarred Demon instead?

Hey, I like your Teysa deck. I have a few suggestions for you to consider though, and hopefully they'll help.

First of all, Teysa decks love creatures. (Obviously, since that's basically what she cares about.) Because of that, I'd recommend running a few other creatures within the deck that could help you with her double-triggers. I'd recommend Pitiless Plunderer, Doomed Traveler, and Junji, the Midnight Sky as possible includes that trigger on creature's deaths. Viscera Seer is another helpful creature for sacrificing stuff, too.

Secondly, I want to start by saying that I love the idea to use Liliana's Contract in the deck. I've wanted to brew a Commander deck with it as a win-con for a while, but never did so. However, I feel like you aren't supporting it enough. You only have four demons in your deck, and an opponent exiling one of them makes the contract unusable. So, here's a few that you could add that would also work well with Teysa: Harvester of Souls can draw you an obscene amount of cards, because it looks at ALL non-token creatures, not just your own. Rune-Scarred Demon could help you with additional tutoring, especially if he dies and you bring him back. Dream Devourer can help you cast your spells later for cheaper, and isn't a lot of mana to cast, himself. Demon of Dark Schemes is a cool card that works with energy, but works without other energy support. It helps you reanimate creatures, and does a small boardwipe on entry.

I hope some of my suggestions help! My only other piece of advice is that if you're going to add more creatures, I'd remove a couple sorceries, maybe.

metalflame I play this deck on MTGO, so imperial seal is actually not very expensive at all. If I were going to play this in paper I would definitely replace that with something else.

Thrumming Stone actually does work with Bontu's Monument and Aetherflux Reservoir, as play is just an old term for cast.

The reason for 40 Shadowborn Apostle is so that I can consistently hit at least one off of Thrumming Stone when comboing off, fewer than 40 means the deck would be much less consistent. Also, excess copies can be played in the hope of getting up to six to find Rune-Scarred Demon or can be sacrificed to Ayara to draw cards, so it is not too big of a deal to have 40 of them.

Finally, thank you so much for the suggestion of Plague of Vermin, that card seems extremely good and I will definitely be testing it.

Thank you Arsalino007 for your feedback!

Overall, the most expensive cards in this deck were given to me, I have considered upgrading my tutors, and am going to go for Demonic Tutor. Although, Rune-Scarred Demon is expensive CMC, I dont have much flying unless I have an artifact out. Thus I included for double use, tutor and flying.

Regarding Nyxbloom Ancient, Gaze of Granite and Nevinyrral's Disk, I have been looking at other options for the exact reasons you stated above. I will be posting some updates to this deck soon! Thank you again!

I have some questions and some suggestions for you, since i play chatterfang alot myself:

First, you have many not so cheap cards but you have one of the not so good tutors with Diabolic Tutor, why using a cheap 4 mana tutor when you can have a 2 mana tutor Demonic Tutor.

What is the purpose of Nyxbloom Ancient in your deck? he is a 7 mana sink and it can only shine when you pull and play Cryptolith Rite. The chance to perfectly combo those cards is small and not worth it. In my opinion Nyxbloom Ancient is not good in this deck and only worth it if you have many mana dorks and not depends you to pull and play one card.

Why would you use Nevinyrral's Disk? you have many high value enchantments that you would destroy, same with Gaze of Granite, don't destroy your own enchantments. I think Rune-Scarred Demon is too much mana for what it does, it only gives you ETB one tutor and a 6/6 flying body, no synergie with tokens or lifegain/drain etc. for So much mana you can cast 1 Demonic tutor (2 mana) and a Falkenrath Noble for example.

Herd Baloth is a 5 mana useless 4/4 body without Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest or Ivy Lane Denizen to combo. You make yourself jump through so many hoops.

What i like are cards like Asceticism this is good protection, Attrition is indeed a good card for this deck and Fecundity very nice card draw for this deck.
