Seems like they are pushing this theme somewhat for the couple of months before rotation, similarly to what they’ve done in the past with various decks, making some powerful deck have a swansong before the cards fall out of standard.
In general, I like to avoid tutors, because they have a tendency to make the games too similar. I do usually play one or two in a black deck, but never the actual Demonic Tutor. However, this is different.
This is all about achievements and there’s actually three levels to this one. Level 1: Four demons with different names. Level 2: Four of the actual Liliana-demons. Level 3: Cast Doomsday to play the demons in the right order. I don’t know what that is, but that’s why it’s an achievement.
Well, sooner or later I had to do it.
It is, after all, an Elder Demon. Or The Elder Demon, since there aren’t any others as of this writing. In fact, all the other Elders are either Dragons or Dinosaurs. I guess you can’t reach elderhood unless your creature type starts with a ‘d’. So, while we’re waiting for that Legendary Elder Deserter to happen, we’ll talk about this.
Yargle, Glutton of Urborg is an interesting case. MaRo has communicated to us that it’s more or less a joke. Something they put in Dominaria just to have vanilla legend in there.
However, it is quite unique. How many legendary creatures with such a high power with that mana do you have? Actually, only one bests our little frog spirit: Lord of Tresserhorn
There’s a couple of pretty strong zombies in the new set, so perhaps the archetype would finally be strong enough, although I do have my reservations.
Liliana wins on her own. We just need to protect her long enough. The state of the format is such, that this grindy approach might not work, but come on, Liliana.
This might be a bit generic, because there’s already quite a few sac-centric decks, but at least its monoblack, so lets try this out.
Time to start brewing again.
Maybe Fateful Cruise? I don’t know. Its black, with a splash of blue.
I’m going to be playing next weekend in the GP Utrecht. I don’t have any clue on what I’m going to be playing, and I’m leaving for Netherlands on Sunday, so I don’t have a lot of time to decide what to play. However, M15 did bring me something I think would make my monoblack deck stronger. It might be surprising, but its Crippling Blight.
