Blasphemous Act Discussion

Your deck inspired me to make a version of my own! I saw the Secret Lair alt art coming out and just had to make a deck around it.

Here's some suggestions I have:

Kindred Discovery - Staple in tribal decks that'll draw you plenty.

Phyrexian Arena - Good draw, life is a resource.

Vanquisher's Banner - A lord for your tribe and a draw on summon.

Mystic Remora and Smothering Tithe - Having these and Rhystic Study in the deck just feels good.

Toxic Deluge - Best boardwipe in the game. Your commander already destroys permanents but this gets around indestructible. Neat huh?

Blasphemous Act - Another boardwipe that gets around indestructible. Since your build is more so token oriented, you shouldn't have a problem resolving this for the low.

Patriarch's Bidding - Bring back your tribe and then some! You can call any creature type, so why not bring back some of your other tribal support too? Ex: Calling slivers would bring back your changelings and the sliver lords.

I'd run Adaptive Automaton and Crystal Shard . Blasphemous Act as well. Unclaimed Territory is a must and I like Tarnished Citadel . Living Death could be kida killer if you let the king go to the graveyard, and given his cost it isnt a bad idea. I think Firemind Vessel is actually really good here. Cauldron of Souls could also be interesting. I don't love Nim Deathmantle never have. I really don't like Cover of Darkness .

Thoughts on deck construction and how the deck played:

Fade Away is great budget but could use be upgraded to Cyclonic Rift / Blasphemous Act / Star of Extinction

Some more early game plays: Gilded Drake , Nev's disk, Oblivion Stone .

I would have included Ashiok, Dream Render , however most of my playgroups have Graveyard strategies included, and i don't want to be that guy.

I originally built with intent to run Desecrated Tomb . When it was played I found it to be too slow and didn't provide a lot of value. It was really gimmiky and really only ever netted me 2 bats over 15+ games.

Even though there is plenty of draw, wheel effects could help get things in the GY more quickly. i.e. Windfall , Wheel of Fate , Magus of the Wheel , Jace's Archivist , Reforge the Soul , etc.

You could also include cards like rise of the dark realms, or command the dread horde for added graveyard recursion, and a way to propel yourself to the front of the game after a major board wipe like In Garruk's Wake .

Mana Leak is also a weaker counterspell in EDH (it's pretty decent in 60-card formats). I would only recommend it in very counterspell-heavy decks. If the goal is protecting against removal/boardwipes use Swan Song or Negate . Otherwise, use Counterspell , Arcane Denial , or any of the other good cards that counter anything.

As for Rift Bolt and Lightning Bolt , if they're for removal I would highly recommend something more reliable like Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Reality Shift , Aftershock , or Fissure . Comet Storm or Rolling Thunder work well with Saheeli too. If they're for going upstairs I'd again recommend things like Comet Storm to have a bigger impact and even end the game outright.

Without counterspelling them, the only way in to handle enchantments is Chaos Warp . I insist you run it. There are a few colorless ways to deal, like Scour from Existence , Unstable Obelisk , and Spine of Ish Sah . The latter two are great with recursion.

Personally, I always run two boardwipes minimum and I try to squeeze more in when possible. You already have the best in Cyclonic Rift, but another could save your bacon (you don't have tutors to find it, nor would I necessarily recommend running any). Even decks that go wide, like ours, need reset buttons in emergencies. Blasphemous Act is the gold standard, but Ixidron , Earthquake , Wash Out , and Coastal Breach are good too.

So Intruder Alarm has a similar effect to Paradox Engine and is not banned lol. Getting things like Sliver Hivelord helps protect your board, and I also run hate cards like Armageddon and Jokulhaups . Don't mind wiping everyone's boards when I still got mana through creatures. Also, Spiteful Sliver and Blasphemous Act is really fun if you have a big board state and are indestructible. +1 for the hive

Last_Laugh on Marchesa’s Steal, Sack and Keep

Ok, I have a few suggestions for you. I also run Marchesa but it's more of an oppresive etb/death trigger abuse with a side of aggro.

First suggestion isn't really a suggestion lol. Spark Double copies Marchesa for double Dethrone, the copies protect one another, and the copy enters already protected. Get it in here asap... thank me later. Herald of Secret Streams falls into this category of 'not a suggestion' too lol.

Boardwipes: 3 opponents can play stuff faster than you can steal it sometimes. Blasphemous Act , Last One Standing , and Jokulhaups are really good budget friendly options. Fire Covenant is better in competitive metas with lots of small utilty creatures.

Sac Outlets: Goblin Bombardment is hard for some colors to get rid of. Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Falkenrath Aristocrat both have haste so they get an immediate counter and they protect themselves.

Discard: Oona's Blackguard and Sadistic Hypnotist help seal up games tighter than a dolpin's butthole.

I'm sure there's several other options I'm missing... feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

Having Anger in your graveyard could be key in getting value out of Magus, Neheb, etc so that you don't need to worry about them surviving a full turn of the table before trying to use them.

Could use a board wipe like Blasphemous Act and at least one more piece of targeted removal that doesn't require jumping through any hoops to make decent; Bedevil , Terminate , Hero's Downfall , etc.

Shenanigans is repeatable artifact removal and a 'safe' card to discard.
