Neotrup on Got eachother to 0 in ...

Your opponent swung with a 3/3 trampler, your ability (maybe Blood Reckoning?) triggers. Your opponent now loses the game during the declare attackers step and you don't get a chance to block as the game never moves to the declare blockers step.

Sagarys well one card I really like in black is Blood Reckoning then there are cards like Nettlevine Blight or the cheap version of that: Brink of Disaster to slow your opponent/destroy their resources or play stuff like Contaminated Bond to stop small creatures early on...

Hope that helps a bit

I think that Hissing Miasma is enough for that deck. Marchesa's Decree and Blood Reckoning cost 1 more mana and do almost the same thing, so I think that would be a waste of precious slots. Gonti's Machinations and Subversion are very interesting cards, i'll keep them for when I need to gain more life. Thank you!

How about all those "being attacked life lose" like Hissing Miasma - Marchesa's Decree and Blood Reckoning?

Gonti's Machinations is really cheap and effective drain in multiplayer EDH.

Subversion for more drain?

precociousapprentice on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

MegaMatt13, as far as the Norn's Annex, Marchesa's Decree, Hissing Miasma, Blood Reckoning question goes, it was somewhat of a difficult question. None of them are great Pillow Fort or Rattlesnake cards, and even Norn's Annex remains on the chopping block. They do less than they should. The loss of life can add up, but I have found that inhibiting the development of board state or causing loss of card or permanent resources is more of a disincentive than small life loss. Life is treated as a resource that can be spent, and people do choose to spend it. When choosing, I considered the CMC of Norn's Annex to be plus 4 life, with the option to pay to reduce that life loss. The loss of 2 life is twice as effective as teh loss of 1 life, so that made a difference. On top of that, I actually would rather that they paid , because that inhibits their development. Either way, the resource demand of Norn's Annex is way larger than that of the others. I also find that Queen Marchesa is the only Monarch card needed, so I devalued that ability. If one were to use all of these cards, I could see it becoming a huge Rattlesnake wall, where one would be paying 4+ life per attack, but that would take at lease 3 cards to achieve, and I find that needing + mana to attack is actually harder to overcome than 5+ life. The mana resource is a steeper cost than the life resource.

Snap157 on Rakdos; Burn It Down

Alrighty then let's get you all set!

You've got some big things and that's not bad with your commander, but you'll need some cheaper burn spells if Rakdos can really work. With that being said, Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, Bump in the Night, and Rift Bolt are your best friends. As for land base, try to shy away from basics, but add in as many rakdos duals that don't come in tapped as possible. I'll get you started down below.

While using rakdos, keep in mind that he takes away only colorless mana, so huge eldrazi such as Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Desolation Twin and It That Betrays can all go out for free if you play it right.

It's also important to keep in mind that the ability only impacts creatures, so super expensive things like Din of the Fireherd, Subterranean Tremors don't belong.

Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:

replace with:

With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!
