The demon Griselbrand dared to stand against Avacyn, earning him the loathing of thousands and the admiration of a few.

Avacyn, the World Asunder {13}
Creature- Eldrazi (mythic)
When you cast Avacyn, the World Asunder, destroy all nonland permanents.
Trample, Annihilator 5

Shocking Twist #1; Awesome!
Reusing Shocking Twist #1; Absolutely Hilarious! Saves design space! Makes demons seem like good guys! :D

i understand that it's ability is like that of diamond valley. but this card ain't no diamond valley. granted, there are some neat instant and combat tricks you can still pull with it, but at the end of the day it's still a 1/1 for 1B that demands you sacrifice a creature for it to do anything.

I used this with Reassembling Skeleton... repeatedly... it actually worked awesome.

I just used this with Platinum Angel... I got back up to four and my opponent only had four, and I had Sanguine Bond out. Do the math.

BG looks pretty damn fun i gotta say
get Gutter Grime out there, then tap all your Llanowar Elves or Birds of Paradise for free mana and sac them.
not to mention you can bring in Reassembling Skeletons if you want to. which you do XD
gonna need to call the ghostbusters to clean up that mess

I'd love to get this going with either a Grave Titan or a Sun Titan imprinted in a Mimic Vat.

4: Two titan activations, an attack for 6, and 6 life, per turn.

Or get this going with Reassembling Skeletons and Skirsdag High Priest, with a Lumberknot on the board just for s&g.

Getting tired of consistently losing to aggro decks turn 5 in my White/Red/Black Sacrifice deck, I added this guy in to see if it would help. In a 10 turn attrition war, I slowly beat my friend who was rapidly attaining elephants and had several Pelakka Wurms out, ending at one life. I must have gained twenty-some life thanks to this BAMF!

Griselbrand clerics are demon worshipers. Ironically enough, you can sacrifice pesky demons like Archdemon of Greed and other life eating demons if they become a threat to your survival.

This guy is amazing. I didn't get him except for two reasons:
-Sacrifice Outlet (I wanted Treacherous Pit-Dweller in the deck, he didn't make the cut lol)

Turns out that him, Skirsdag High Priest, and ravenous demon are big pals! (among my other clerics..)

In a pinch I can sac any human to flip the demon*, and gain 9 life. For 1 mana. Whenever I create a demon, I can attack next turn, pay 1, gain 5 life, and then put out the same untapped 5/5. Turns every kill spell into something like "Pay {1}, turn that spell into a backwards swords to plowshares"

*Note: his ability is a sorcery speed ability.

I thought the life-gain was going to be useless, but it comes in such huge gobs (even when you do it response to a board wipe, you gain like.. 10 life) that he's turning out to make the deck. Seriously, run him if you have toughness 2 or greater (probably everywhere!) and you'll be pleasantly surpris... (see all)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
