Abzkaban on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

5 days ago


A Game of Thrones

Commander / EDH Abzkaban


It started as a budget version of this deck before it shifted to a more competitive meta. It also hasn’t been updated in a while. I’ve been running a few things not on this list like Bloodthirsty Blade and Dockside Extortionist. It also still has my Wishboard which I just net decked from here since I didn’t know what I might need. But like I said I almost never grabbed something that wasn’t Insurrection, so I thought why pay 2 more to be able to play it and just swapped it in.

+1! @Your post

I'd cut...

Zombie Infestation ... I like this card, but when are you going to draw the cards to fuel this? I'd say there are better discard outlets, eg. Skirge Familiar , Phantasmagorian , etc.

Bloodthirsty Blade ... fluffy, < Doom Blade , etc.

Boneyard Parley ... 7 mana for 2-3 creatures of your opponent's choice is so meh. < Balthor the Defiled , Twilight's Call , Command the Dreadhorde , etc.

Cut ... fluffy, weak removal, weak late game burn.

Anje's Ravager ... this card is awful. I'd rather play Sire Of Insanity or Awaken the Erstwhile if you're going to dump your hand... or Faithless Looting .

Bog Witch ... slow! Cut!

You might also go down to 34 lands and add a few more madness.

Good luck!

Oh I like Blood Lust , Mutiny , Rally the Righteous , Auger Spree , & Nameless Inversion .

I have been thinking about Duelist's Heritage & Bloodthirsty Blade , I have always wished Assault Suit could be equipped to opponents creatures. I am unsure about the Vow's, every time I have played them I haven't gotten much value. If they were instants I may like them better. I am going to test out Bloodthirsty Blade to see if sticking around ends up having more value for me.

I wish running green worked, Berserk is perfect! Generous Patron & Gahiji, Honored One could be interesting too.

Definitely Arcbond ! I forgot to list that one above. I recently found out how good it works with Radiate ! And some kind of damage prevention.

My commander is Queen Marchesa and deck link,The Game of Houses (Daes Dae'mar).

I am running Repercussion , Deflecting Palm , & Boros Fury-Shield in my doubling deck as they allow damage to go from 2X - 4X. Doubling deck link -The bigger they are, the better they fall. They used to be the same deck but they recently split.

Thank you all for the suggestions!

Thanks cheeseycrackers, I appreciate it. The swords are tremendously useful I have found. The sheer power of Sword of Feast and Famine is undeniable as it will give your creatures unblockable against a very high percentage of Commander decks, and the hit really puts you ahead. The hits from Sword of War and Peace can also just deal out brutal hits to players with full hands, and boosts your own life total which can suffer from a lot from self-inflicted incremental damage.

The swords also work tremendously well against over-confident players who have a giant board presences which you can strategically bypass with the relevant sword.

If you couldn't get a hold of them and needed to find 2 cards to fill their spaces you could try a bigger politics package with Curse of Opulence and Duelist's Heritage , both of which are great. Bloodthirsty Blade might be an option, or simply more ramp with Arcane Signet and Mind Stone . Angel's Grace and more fog effects/removal would also be worth trying.

However, I've found the swords to be a really nice tool in my toolbox in many, many games. I can't think of any other cards that fill that exact space (Aside perhaps from other Swords) and solve the problems that Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of War and Peace can solve.
