goldlion on Marchesa, the Black Rose EDH: Steal Yo Gurl!

3 weeks ago

Wow, Expropriate is wild! That'd go nicely in my Lazav, Dimir Mastermind deck. Definitely expensive though. I might prefer Insurrection in your deck, for the fact it needs creativity to permanently steal their creatures (I like that challenge) - but they are both nuts in there. I see what you mean about Razaketh, the Foulblooded, and the lag to play one of those other two after you search for them...

...If that's the win-con package, maybe some passive ramping could help? A couple examples of what I mean would be Pitiless Plunderer and Black Market. I run both those in my Ghave, Guru of Spores to great effect. A Ruthless Knave, rather than the plunderer, offers a sac engine while creating two treasure tokens. Not efficient enough for this deck I think, but more for inspiration :). He offers a mana sink if you find yourself with extra mana in the first 5-6 turns and helps you position yourself for 1 big turn.

Maybe, after playing this version a bit, swapping your high cmc for Grave Betrayal and some one sided board wipes like Plague Wind could be an interesting take to try out?


I put an Unspeakable Symbol in mine as well. Seems like it was made for her, taking your life below your opponents while putting on the counters. I dream of having it out in this "Steal Yo Gurl!" style, with a Champion of Stray Souls on the battlefield. If the sequencing and mana could work... Value town.


In regards to the version I'm working on: We have a lower level player in our playgroup who doesn't quite have the cards or the know-how for stronger deck building. I wanted to make something less powerful than Kresh and Ghave, for playing him while still enjoying myself. Madness is a really fun mechanic I'm building around with a lot of trigger opportunities through the draw, discard to cast, and different recursion. Such great value, just not the power. Madness fits naturally with the Innistrad vampires that get +1/+1 counters for dealing damage. Great synergy with Marchesa and it's letting me play interesting cards, including some sweet old commons, that I probably wouldn't play otherwise (ex: Bog Witch). Cards like Archfiend of Ifnir and Squee, Goblin Nabob become elite. I'll let you know when a version is online.


One jankyish build I was thinking for Marchesa: If I can find a more ways in her colours to put +1/+1 counters on creatures, I could run Highway Robber type cards with Blood Artist triggers.

With Nether Traitor combo, you can sac the token Pawn of Ulamog makes to the Phyrexian Altar as opposed to it's own colorless mana effect for black mana to make infinite black.

I agree with the creature-based reanimation being too slow and have removed them from my own list too.

If you're finding you get stuck with nothing to reanimate sometimes I would start by replacing the noncreature cards with the same effects you can find on creatures:

Although you might want to run more hand discard effects so you don't have to hardcast your bombs. Things like Bog Witch, Overeager Apprentice, Skirge Familiar.

SamsWrath on Grenzo, Dungeon Warden - Doomsday

I like Tainted Pact because i can use it to dig for anything I might need which, includes interaction.

As for you best bet with those other cards... you have:

Past in Flames or Magus of the Will to replace Yawgmoth's Will

Reforge the Soul or Magus of the Wheel to replace Wheel of Fortune

Nothing will replace outright (as a downgraded version) Lion's Eye Diamond, Lake of the Dead or the fast mana: Mana Crypt, Mox Opal & Mox Diamond.

You could try running the creature replacements for the other 2 spells and then running Sacrifice and Burnt Offering. You could also try running Bog Witch although, unless you can play it T1 or T2 it won't be able to give you the needed BBB for a turn 3 win. Another card you could run that could eat a slot but, with purpose, would be Mossfire Egg. For more ramp you can always run Seething Song. You can use the red to pay colorless or convert it to black with replacement effects like the Stars/Egg/Signet, Bog Witch or Priest of Gix. It would also give you one hell of an awesome Shattering Spree if you want to slow down other players (blow up mana rocks/tops) or Stax pieces.

If you are a turn or 2 slower because you don't have fast mana, you could also always play more creature kill/artifact destruction or something like Conqueror's Flail.

Keep in mind that running higher cost cards will make Ad Nauseam more painful so you'll draw fewer cards when you use it.

Sporkity, thank you for the valueable inputs, currently making some changes to the deck.

I removed Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Blasting Station for now, since they are a bit slow (endrek takes a full turn to BEGIN functioning, station in my games has been mostly a worse Blood Artist/Zulaport - also wont kill big creatures and cant be reanimated to combo). Also removed Disciple of Griselbrand since he had little synergy with the deck and often was a stall card.

Added Dread Summons, Tortured Existence and Bog Witch. Like you said, I needed more discard/grave-filling outlets to reanimate big guys early - many times i was sitting early game with a Victimize and no way to discard my 7-drops.

Will soon experiment with the others you suggested. Only feel like Stinkweed Imp is a bit underwhelming - I lose a draw, hes mostly a chump blocker in battlefield, while other discards are much more recursive: generate tokens(call the bloodline, skirk ridge exh, dread summons, haunted dead), disrupt opponents (Mindslicer, Rotting Rats) or filtering (undead glatiator, geier reach, tortured existence).

Stitcher's Supplier seems like a very interesting addition, will test as soon as I get my hands in one. Also from M19 is Desecrated Tomb, which is a maybe, what do you think?

Hey there and welcome to the PDH home base.

Here are some ideas for your deck.

Removal: Ghastly Demise over Serrated Arrows, Vendetta over Chill to the Bone

Discard: more "each opponent discards" over the "target player discards" stuff

Draw: there is Vulturous Aven as well (can exploit itself)

Recover: Urborg Uprising over Gravedigger or Cadaver Imp

Stuff: Wayfarer's Bauble over Armillary Sphere. More ramp, like Thought Vessel, Leaden Myr, Bog Witch, Kozilek's Translator

Bog Witch

Call the Bloodline

Cryptbreaker

Darkblast

Deal Broker

Faithless Looting

Jalum Tome

Key to the City

Rummaging Goblin

Tin Street Market

Tomb Robber

Trading Post

Urza’s Tome

Towner_Willow on Gitrog Monster: Budget Possible?

9 months ago

i love the Frog, and im excited to see a budget list floating around. cards i would recommend and Ramunap Excavator and Beseech the Queen if you wanna keep it at this price point.

A your running the Dakmor Salvage combo and you have a few discard outlets but the need Mana to be payed into them. Noose Constrictor Putrid Imp and Skirge Familiar are all free and are cheep. I also don't see a win with the combo adding a Dark Ritual and Exsanguinate makes it when your holding your deck you can win. both cards are budget friendly and dont add to much complication to the combo. you could also use Bog Witch for this combo just cast Dark Ritual in response to the Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre trigger shuffle Ulamog, a land, and the Ritual. Discard Dakmor. repeat until you got a ton of and cast Exsanguinate. profit

I think this deck can be powerful because the main combo is so affordable.

Hi! +1!

Have you considered: Bog Witch, Cryptbreaker, Dark Confidant, Gate to Phyrexia, Weaponcraft Enthusiast?

And I would recommend to use Bitterblossom for all the stax and mana dinial spells and as a sac fodder generator.
