You know what are good for devotion? Grave Pact and Dark Prophecy!

Seems nice with Grave Pact.

In non-limited games...

Phyrexian Obliterator plus Grave Pact and Dark Prophecy?

the sac ability should be negligible pretty much all of the time

You should read devotion again Majinara before commenting on cards with it. Your statement about needing a lot of black permanents for this guy to be good is off considering him and say gravepact alone put out 5 flying 1/1 tokens.

I always like Demon's that have a bonus and a drawback. Demons have always been affiliated with tempting offerings which later backfire. In this case, it just starts becoming a problem later.

This will be a good limited creature since you get at least 2 1/1 flyers when it comes into play (that is, unless Devotion doesn't count it's own symbol count...). A 6/6 flyer is hard to deal with, no matter the limited environment.

Devotion counts itself, as the ability triggers when the creature enters the battlefield. So the check for your devotion happens after the creature is already on the field, meaning you will always get at least 2 harpies with him.

That said, in a vacuum, AO gives you 7 points of flying for your first attack, for 7 mana. Not bad for a black creature. Still in a vacuum, he kills himself after two swings, which is the cost of him being so efficient otherwise. Add a few more black mana symbols on your field, and he can get pretty crazy.

I like him.

I kind of think Majinara doesn't play limited. 99% of all rares AND uncommons are good in limited? Yeah, just straight up no. I'd actually go out on a limb here and say that this guy gets more out of constructed because of how much easier it is to find resilient black permanents.

My sealed pool was garbage. Like really, really, REALLY garbage. I had little to no removal in any color (especially in black *fffff*) but that Demon still won me three rounds.
I think he is the best of the promos for limited, especially sealed. I might be wrong, but I think I'm right.

Solid card with a lot of great interactions in the set. My favourite: sacrifice it with Rescue from the Underworld and reanimate anything with ETB triggers (especially any of the Devotion to black cards). Even if doing this doesn't allow you to dodge the beginning of upkeep trigger to sacrifice (I wasn't sure because Rescue from the Underworld and this card both say "beginning of upkeep"), you get a bigger army (bonus points if you can give your guys haste).
