precociousapprentice on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

2 weeks ago

Bloodytrailz, love the deck. I am always pretty excited to check out what other people are doing with an Aikido Marchesa.

simoneca, I had never really considered Intervention Pact before. I am not sure how I would adjust to fit it in. I played Reverse Damage for a little while when I first started playing with Queen Marchesa, and I never really felt it worked out as I wanted. I also systematically tested most white Fog effects, but for some reason Intervention Pact wasn't one of them. I guess Intervention Pact has an advantage over Reverse Damage in that you can just play your game, not leave up the mana, be more likely to catch someone by surprise, and then pay for it the next turn. It also ends up being like a Fog for the next two attacks, so it seems pretty solid. I will defininitely test it.

After playing with Warping Wail for a bit, I really like it. Sorceries that hose us are all over the place, and there are a ton of 1 power or toughness cards that can be a problem. Even as a flash chump blocker or 2 CMC ramp it does work. My issue at this point is having enough to cast it consistently. I am considering tuning my mana base a little to account for it. Pain lands like Battlefield Forge may help. I am also considering adding Arch of Orazca back in in place of Crystal Ball. The Ball has been solid, and may ultimately not come out, or at least return after testing, but being able to consistently hard counter sorceries when I want or exile key utility creatures if necessary would likely be worth the adjustment. That and the fact that an extra land may help given I have slowly raised the average CMC as the deck has evolved, so packing some extra lands could ease the pressure for mana. If I do that, I may try the Mox Diamond again. We shall see, as that could lower the sources again. Choices...

As a final thought, I am always amazed at how well this deck shifts from low key control to crazy aggression, depending on draw and on the opponents. I played a T4 Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo, followed by Warping Wailing a T5 Wrath of God by the Oloro, Ageless Ascetic player. I won shortly after. This is another aspect of Aikido. I knew playing a long game against Oloro would be a bad move, and drew the combo and counter backup in my opening hand. Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good. In any case, this idea makes me even more excited about Virtus the Veiled. Deathtouch defense and massive offense is exactly what I need. Like a mini-Master of Cruelties. It will definitely find a place in the deck.

Stormforge_Mystic on Opinions on Bogles and Burn

on low budget Burn is much better, Bogles needs Horizon Canopys pretty much for consistency. And don't play Rugged Prairies in your burn deck, it just doesn't fit there. Get more Sacred Foundrys or Battlefield Forges if budget is problem.

Ok.

First thing I looked up were your lands.
You have too many that enter the battlefield tapped and you definetely DON'T want that in a aggro deck. You need the mana now and not a turn later. I would cut them all except Path of Ancestry. Better add some like Battlefield Forge. They might seem bad but later on you won't need to pay life since your other lands will get you the colored mana you need. But they do come into play untapped and give you a choice depending on your situation. Edgar games can become Arch Enemy games pretty fast so you need all the speed you can get. Checklands like Clifftop Retreat help too and are not that expensive. Finally you really should add a Bojuka Bog against nasty graves. Just for the chance of hitting right with a land spot in your deck its worth it.

So now the sorceries:
Blood Tribute sounds like fun but for 6 mana it does not help you actually killing someone. On another note it only hurts 1 player but gives me the opposition of more then 1 in some playgroups. I would rather play a vampire to add to my main strategy. This things seems to be too much on the sideline. And later on in the game you would spend 6 mana AND tap a vampire for only 5 life loss and 5 life gain for example. So it decreases in efficiency. Vampires you play don't.
Bubbling Muck seems like fun but you are using 3 colors so its efficiency is limited. Especially with no duals in the deck. And the efficiency decreases as the game progresses since you will get your mana and will reach a point where you don't need more pretty fast.
Fell the Mighty sound cool but sometimes you really need to kill tokens or small creatures. Better use a Wrath of God and a Day of Judgment.
Tragic Arrogance is not that good either since you will loose most of your board. The voltron player will thank you and win. Use it in a voltron deck.

Spirits on Kaalia in the works(Final Draft Maybe?)

1 month ago

Hi Khentimentu,

Welcome to the world of Kaalia of the Vast, fellow play Kaalia, Mirror Breaker

Dragon Tempest is a CMC2 Fervor, Mother of Runes won't like it but she'll live!

Grand Abolisher is very nice, means Kaalia of the Vast can attack and play an A/D/D on your turn without interference. He is $6 though, so doesn't help your under $200 budget, but you have some room it looks like.

Karmic Guide is pretty cheap, has protection: and has recursion built-in, I really like her, she can be abused too if you choose. Could easily replace Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, he's too random, and can't get your graveyard.

Should also spend the $8 on Master of Cruelties. Instant kill-con.

Terminate is an inexpensive removal, more modular than Condemn. Lightning Bolt feels a little under-powered with all the good Exile in .

Archfiend of Depravity is a reasonably good budget demon. Mortify is a good budget removal spell. Aegis Angel is a good budget angel, and protects Kaalia of the Vast. Bladewing the Risen is good budget recursion dragon. None are auto-includes though, but there's some stuff there they could replace.

Hellspark Elemental feels wrong, does he combo something? No synergy.

Talisman of Indulgence > Rakdos Signet > Manalith (Commander's Sphere is better too, Cultivator's Caravan)

Battlefield Forge is a budget land that can get rid of some of the "ETB Tapped" lands your running.

Crackling Doom feels in the flavor of this deck because of the red spells you play. Thunderous Wrath is awesome to top deck, but sucks in the hand, can always just burn a player if drawn at a inconvenient time. Bogardan Hellkite also feels kind-of in this flavor too.

Flameblast Dragon won't work if he enters tapped and attacking, you'll have to wait until next turn to activate his ability.

Whip of Erebos its $3 I think, but gives all your creatures lifelink, and has recursion build in. Especially great to trigger guys like Rune-Scarred Demon.

I'm testing Demonlord Belzenlok, I think he's going to work out, I have a feeling.

Since your playing Ugin's Nexus, not knowing the commanders, I'm thinking Ob Nixilis, Unshackled might support that too.

Necropotence is $6 I believe, but can help with the draw issues.

Hopefully you find something useful here. Nice build. +1.

Ramunap Ruins instead of Battlefield Forge? The only advantage I can see Forge having is being able to respond to the damage trigger with Lightning Bolt when at 1 Life.

DeviousPenguin666 on CBr Eldrazi Aggro deck.

Looks like a good deck! As for suggestions, have you considered maybe playing Caves of Koilos/Llanowar Wastes and Battlefield Forge/Shivan Reef instead of the Evolving Wilds? They will only get you 2 of each of your mana symbols, but they won't come in tapped. Also, what are your thoughts on Matter Reshaper?

Have you ever tested withEldrazi Displacer + Sun Titan + a few more colorless-producing lands like Battlefield Forge, Sulfurous Springs, Fetid Heath, Rugged Prairie, and a few Wastes? That might be fun.

Or you could evoke Reveillark and blink it with its LTB trigger on the stack to keep it and blink it again and again with Displacer.

Have fun brewing!
