Does this Trope include having the supposedly satanic figure turn out to not be Satan while the evil tyrant we thought was God is in fact the real Satan(who duped the fake Satan into thinking he's the real Satan)? Is that a subversion or an inversion?

That sounds like a different trope altogether. This trope is about the alignment of Satan.

Part of me wants to see a work where Satan is essentially the Bad Cop of the Good Cop/Bad Cop routine.

Arguably that is the case in The Book Of Job (depending on how you interpret it).

A modern work.

I wonder if any Fan Works have ever combined this Trope with any of the fictional Satan Stand ins that appear in Cyrstal Dragon Jesus cosmologies, like Morgoth.

It's Morgoth. Tolkien has been ridden over so many times by the Fan Fic brigade that I'm pretty sure you could find Fan Fic pairing Morgoth and Sauron!

... Oh, god. There's fanfic pairing Morgoth and Sauron, isn't there?

The God of the Old Testament is, quite frankly, a God I'd have gladly joined Satan in fighting. Wasn't it a death penalty offense to wear cotton with wool?

Anyone who wouldn't rebel against a god like that is an idiot.

Not to mention that he was disliked enough that Satan was able to get 1/3 of the angels to rebel. But that doesn't necessarily mean Satan is a good guy, just look at what he did to Job (just because it was with God's permission doesn't change anything) or (if we're counting NT) the prophecies of Revelation.

"Maybe his loss in the war with God/the gods was the original Downer Ending, and the bastards who did win have been tarring him with the propaganda brush ever since. Wouldn't that be a Mind Screw?"

Mind Screw, indeed.
