Ashling the Pilgrim Discussion

spooniermist on I get a kick out of you

A few suggestions:

Zendikar Resurgent is great, but I'm not sure it works with what you're trying to do here.

Triumph of Ferocity seems situational, you're probably better off having something like Harmonize

Shape of the Wiitigo is quite expensive for what it does

Primeval Bounty expensive card for what it does

Primal Vigorchances of you casting this, then passing and letting your opponents use it first are high, imo.

Death's Presence you don't have that many creature to benefit from this.

Ashling the Pilgrim seems like a weak board wipe. Might be okay, though, but expensive.

Jugan, the Rising Star is just kinda bad, and you can do better for 6 aman

Rage Forger1 damage across 2-3 creatures won't make a big difference, even if it's across a few turns.

Soul's Might I don't think this is good.

Boundless Realms you need cheaper mana sources. You should add Rampant Growth and other cheap ramp. And Kodama's Reach

Zhur-Taa Druid Rampant Growth Kodama's Reach 2 Forest 2 Mountain would be my suggestions for a bit more ramp to give you the nudge in mana to cast the kickers.

Verduran Emissary Scrounging Bandar Keldon Overseer Fungal Behemoth Citanul Woodreaders Burst Lightning seem okay, but work nicely with what you're trying to do. Maximising on kicker is the way to go, imo.

Rishkar's Expertise goes in almost every green deck. It's crazy good, especially with a giant commander.

Ashling the Pilgrim: Doesn't really do anything here. Sure, you can boardwipe, but there are better things for this.

Bogardan Hellkite: Eight mana for the effect? This is overcosted. Consider Inferno Titan or Ryusei, the Falling Star.

Dack's Duplicate is in a lot of Marchesa lists, and it shouldn't be. It's better in almost every way to run things like Captivating Crew or Sower of Temptation.

Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief Kinda just a goodstuff card, with a commander that doesn't want to be running goodstuff.

Duplicant: Allow me to introduce you to Patron of the Vein.

Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius: Again, why is this here? This ain't a goodstuff deck.

River Kelpie is a trap. I have played this card EXTENSIVELY and I find it to be a "win more" card. It ONLY works when you have your board state set up, whereas Harvester of Souls or Dark Prophecy gives you cards regardless of whether or not the things that died slipped through the cracks.

Shadowborn Demon: It's a goodstuff card that isn't even good. Run Vindictive Lich or something else that actually has synergy with Marchesa.

Finally, why don't you have any sac outlets? Ashnod's Altar, Attrition, ect. I feel like you're not entirely grasping what makes Marchesa powerful. You need to find a way to build around her and abuse all of her abilities. I'm not even recommending my list, just that you look at what stands out about the general and go from there.

There are so many lands because I liked the idea of Ashling the Pilgrim, 99 Mountain, but wanted a more competitive deck. Having so many lands also helps with not missing land drops.

Thanks a lot!

Yes I Purphoros, God of the Forge for this deck would be... godlike :D

I haven't even considered any instant boardwipes to use after declaring attackers, like with Ashling the Pilgrim. That's a good strategy.

Yes, Skullclamp for a draw. I also use Herald’s Horn and Vanquisher's Banner for draw since this is soldier tribal aside from commander itself.

I love those kind of aggro multiplayer decks! Got some inspiration from your deck as well (Legion's Landing.

Thought about Wingmate Roc or Serra Ascendant?

Also Ashling the Pilgrim works very well with Iroas, God of Victory when pushing it over the edge after declaring your attackers.

If you want to check my list --> Iroas, God of War (Multiplayer EDH)

Also +1 for your cool deck!

Greetings from Gottsplitter

Nice deck! Got some new ideas from it for mine like Thalia, Heretic Cathar.

I agree to your choice of Iroas as commander. You can do really go aggro with iroas without loosing your little creatures and also push a lot of the damage throught with the menace-ability.

Thought about Purphoros, God of the Forge. Should be even better in your deck than in mine, cause you play lot more token generators like Conqueror's Pledge and Nomads' Assembly.

Also consider Ashling the Pilgrim to wipe out opponents creatures during your attackphase before blockers are declared.

Maybe Skullclamp helps with the little acces WR have to card draw.

My own approach to Iroas aggro multiplayer is here: Iroas, God of War (Multiplayer EDH)

Cool deck! I got some new ideas like Blade Splicer and Precinct Captain from your list.

Thought about Serra Ascendant, Urabrask the Hidden or Emeria Angel?

Also Ashling the Pilgrim can be very sick, when triggering it during attack (before blockers are declared) with Iroas on the table.

For some inspiration here is my Iroas, God of War (Multiplayer EDH)

to be honest, the idea was to use him with Cauldron of Souls to make infinite persists triggers, I guess I'll use Ashling the Pilgrim instead, I already have Grim Poppet, But I want a second way to do the combo...
