TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa Edh

1 week ago

Ok...There are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (like Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards). The problem is, these cards hardly do anything other than putting counters on themselves. They're pretty much duds. So to make up for this, people will put in good sac outlets, (Cards like Mind Slash, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Attrition, etc). This type of deck gets its engine running STRICTLY from it's sac outlets, (NOT FROM ITS CREATURES) and because of this, it is a bit more reliant on it's commander.

The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck is not RELYING on its sac outlets, (although it does have a few) but rather on the bounce effects of creatures. (Cards like Mulldrifter and Harvester of Souls). With this type of deck, you're also not fully relying on your commander. Marchesa is just a perk. If you don't have her out, you can still play your creatures and benefit from them.

Also keep in mind, that it isn't too hard getting +1/+1 counters on your creatures just using the dethrone ability itself. I find that most, if not all the time, you will NOT be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.

This is the Marchesa deck that I personally made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

Some cards that I would highly recommend putting in the deck are:
- Sneak Attack
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Demonic Tutor
- River Kelpie
- Necropotence
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Diabolic Intent
- Harvester of Souls
- Glen Elendra Archmage
- Mind Slash
- Thalakos Deceiver
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Phyrexian Tower
- Cyclonic Rift
- Grimgrin, Corpse-Born
- Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
- Scourge of the Throne
- Unspeakable Symbol
- Grave Betrayal
- Flayer of the Hatebound
- Thraximundar
NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are good cards to help abuse the ETB triggers.

TheDarkSlayer21 on marchesa budget +1+1 counter deck

I realize that you have a budget for this deck, but I will let you be the person to decide what is too expensive and what isn't.

With that said, there are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck.

P.S. I would take out Endless One. If it dies and comes back, it will be a 0/0. So it's useless for this type of deck. Also, if you're searching for other Board Wipes that are as good as Damnation, I would recommend Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, or Decree of Pain.

TheDarkSlayer21 on The Truth of Politics

First off, putting Marchesa in the graveyard is NOT risky. If someone tries to get rid of Marchesa from your graveyard, you can redirect it back to the command zone.

Rule 903.9
If a commander would be exiled from ANYWHERE or put into its owner's hand, graveyard, or library from anywhere, its owner may put it into the command zone instead.

With that said, there are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (like Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards).

I find that most, if not all the time, you will not be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.

Also since your basing this on stealing as many creatures as possible I would recommend putting in Blatant Thievery, Bribery, Sepulchral Primordial, and Thalakos Deceiver

Asterfix on Pia's Choice

I just realized this was red/black I feel so silly. My red black deck revolves around Yahenni, Undying Partisan with shittons of kill spells, Aetherborn Marauder to steal the counters off of Fretwork Colony after about turn 6. The Marionette Master would work great to combo it with Ravenous Intruder + Key to the City. IF you wanted to end the game in a turn (after setup) I would add in some low cost artifacts to sac for Ravenous Intruder and then use Key to the City. Invigorated Rampage on Marionette Master for that sweet 8 damage from each sac, even if you have only 2 artifacts to sac Ravenous Intruder unblockable will finish the job (Sac the key to the city if they manage to kill it or stay alive).
