Sire Of Insanity Discussion

I agree that Esper Sentinel is better suited as a tax piece than it is draw value, but I’ve been brainstorming what secondary card could help boost the draw potential of it and I think the best card to compliment it is Sword of Light and Shadow . Making the tax may be too disruptive for most players to want to pay, but it also gives the Sentinel protection from two prominent removal colors and provides a cheap recursion method to get him back as recurring a 1/1 with no evasion through your commander may be too much to ask.
Even without the Sentinel it looks like your deck has a number of other targets that look more suitable to recur with the sword than with your commander such as: Azra Oddsmaker , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Sire Of Insanity as well as your tax pieces that lack evasion especially since the added protection the sword gives can also keep those tax pieces around longer.

Shriekhorn is 17 cents and mills for 6, 2 per turn.
Divest can let you see if re-animating is safe from removal/countermagic and you can target yourself to get fatties in the yard. Raven's Crime also works, and these are probably better than 2 cmc discard outlets.
Sire Of Insanity dodges any sorcery speed removal.
Lastly, Nihil Spellbomb only hits enemy yards and draws you a card. Worth considering for the sideboard.

kellpiece Thanks for the advice! I definitely appreciate the advice for the two drops. I was trying to fix my mana curve, but I hadn't looked for too many things. I will definitely add Sire Of Insanity and Griselbrand and consider the rest.

I love demon deck ideas. The only drawback is alot of demons have REALLY shitty negative stuff they do as well.
Griselbrand get this boi in there. he fucks. hard. I'd also def keep the Master of Cruelties and maybe even throw in some Lightning Greaves to protect your heavy hitters. Sire Of Insanity also a fuckin sick demon who works well with top decking if you have Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire out. Demigod of Revenge is also a sick ass card thats easy to play with your basic mana set up. Also maybe consider 1-2 Ob Nixilis Reignited for some late game card draw and variation to keep opponents on their toes.
Biggest advice would be to dial back on some of the demons/devils just for the sake of having them. Some of em are trash. For example you could ditch the Tibalt's Rager for maybe some Spike Jester or Dreadhorde Butcher

Dance of the Manse : For pillowforty decks like Pramikon to return removed stax pieces like Suppression Field (very strong card as it includes fetchlands and PW's and shuts off a nice variety of other stuff....mainly all of my other decks as they often assemble creature loops), or Oath of Lieges , or Confounding Conundrum (vs pesky ramp) and so on. It's in mah baby Pramikon Hurr Durr Slow Game.
Ghostly Pilferer : You want to have a value piece vs commanders and a discard outlet for potential reanimator style and the ability to draw on its own? Here you go. Speaking of reanimator: get yourself some ape snake with Thieving Amalgam . This thing takes over the game, if reanimated early (sure Grave Titan , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Sire Of Insanity and a heap of others do so too, but they are not as cheap as mah boi or make it a non game like the Sire or Jin-Gitaxias do). It's like a battlecruiser version of Consecrated Sphinx .

It depends how consistently you are able to draw your key pieces. Only Sire Of Insanity and Slaughter Games are mana intensive, the rest are 1 or 2 cmc. You can Reanimate the creature, but the sorcery spell is rather expensive. That’s primarily why I recommend Surgical Extraction over Slaughter Games . You’re absolutely right that it can’t hit cards like Emrakul, but I think the steep drop off in mana cost is worth it (plus it can be played at instant speed). That would lower the deck’s average cmc substantially. Lower cmc equals more cards that can be played per turn with the mana you have available.
If you’re intent on keeping Slaughter Games , then I’d probably add about 2 more lands or so to increase the odds of a land draw.

Since you have Sire Of Insanity , it might be cool to include Library of Leng . Being able to discard onto the top of your library would allow you to choose what card is on top when Vaevictis attacks.
Note: You still have to discard your hand when Sire is out. The oracle text of Library of Leng now reads "You have no maximum hand size. If an effect causes you to discard a card, discard it, but you may put it on top of your library instead of into your graveyard."
Cool deck! Sometimes the best decks are the honest ones that are just really good at doing the attacking thing.
