Bite of the Black Rose Discussion

It's like some kind of distorted Kenrith deck. I love it.

Stormfist Crusader and the new Allure of the Unknown feel like a good fit in here.

Head Games is so much fun! I run it in my Kenrith deck. You can give an opponent an answer for a big threat or a hand full of lands. Really versatile.

Multiplayer-specific cards like Infernal Offering or "will of the council" cards like Tyrant's Choice, Bite of the Black Rose, and Coercive Portal could also be fun.

GhostChieftain, Let me get this straight - you think Queen Marchesa (long may she reign) is a flavor fail? I think Bite of the Black Rose , Ballot Broker , and Capital Punishment have something to say. The Queen's court offers a choice even though the decision has already been made. I disagree with your assessment of Queen Marchesa (long may she reign).

Queen of Curses ala Queen Marchesa (Long May She Reign) is a awesome commander who brings the Monarch mechanic into the deck. To accompany your previously mentioned subthemes you could utilize Curses - which are a typical sub-theme of the Queen 's. Since she is mardu, you can also include the previously mentioned Ballot Broker for your voting/politics cards. Speaking of which, if you choose the queen you will have 15 of the previously mentioned cards to choose from - mentioned below:

For wincons, you have some very exciting options in the form of Captive Audience , Generous Gift + Demonic Pact , and Approach of the Second Sun . And, if you were to ever be in a 1v1 scenario Overwhelming Splendor outright cripples your opponent's combat damage based strategies. So, what do you think?

The offering cycle that cmdr 14 gave us, Volcanic Offering , and Infernal Offering .

There's voting from conspiracy like Capital Punishment and Bite of the Black Rose

There the chain cards. Like Chain of Smog and Chain Lightning

You clearly love politics and I have a few politics cards you might like. Bite of the Black Rose can poison your foes against one another. Cruel Entertainment will suddenly make allies out of people who have threatened to kill you. Tyrant's Choice gives them a choice between torture and death. You may also have use for Marchesa's Decree. If you have some time, would you review my Game of Marchesa deck, please?

I hope these suggestions have been of some use to you.

Ravenrose on Marchesa, Queen of Ashes

Bite of the Black Rose, Tyrant's Choice and Cruel Entertainment would be fun additions to this deck. Act of Treason and Press into Service may also be of use to you. I hope these suggestions have helped.

Ravenrose on Rose of Regeneration

I like this Marchesa too though the Queen will always rule my heart. For this deck I recommend Cruel Entertainment, Bite of the Black Rose, and Order of Succession due to usefulness and flavour. I think you might also enjoy Plea for Power. I do not know what your budget is but I think you might want to invest in Scourge of the Throne. Skyline Despot could be a good prophetic card: it makes you monarch. Rewind and Unwind are worthy counter spells to consider.

I hope these suggestions have helped!
