Looking for a spot for a Demonic Tutor

Commander (EDH) forum

I recently opened a JP alt art Demonic Tutor . I'm really excited about the pull, as the art and flavor of the card are enthralling. That being said, I don't have a black deck. I really want to make a deck that can really use the demonic tutor, so maybe a build that relies on several combo pieces or synergies? Any suggestions would be appreciated

Please understand that I don’t mean this in a snarky way at all, it just speaks to the power level of the card:
1) add black to any deck
2) add Demonic Tutor to said deck

You’re now successfully using one of the most powerful cards in EDH!

DuTogira I can't really argue with that

As others have said, any deck that runs black can make great use of it. That being said, I have had great luck with it in Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons , and Tayam, Luminous Enigma . All three are combo decks with various lines of play. I wait to draw into half of a combo and then tutor the other half.

How about going mono black and building K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth . I’ve heard he’s pretty good!

Yeah, Demonic is just an auto-include. If you have it or are willing to purchase it, chuck it into every black deck you have. That said . . .

Mairsil, the Pretender , Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools plus Kodama of the East Tree , Korvold, Fae-Cursed King , and Kenrith, the Returned King are the black decks I own. Maybe one of those tickles your fancy.

Yup, as others have said, in a 100 card singleton format, tutors help just about every deck. If Black is one of your colours, the only reason not to include Demonic Tutor is because you want a detuned deck to enjoy the more social aspects and enjoy the randomness that comes with a 100 card singleton format that doesn't use tutors.

I have two black decks. My Shadowborn Apostle deck runs Tutor. My Marchesa Theft deck doesn't.
