Search target opponent's library for a creature card and put that card onto the battlefield under your control. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

I understand your stance on Bribery ComboCrazy, but I'll keep it in lust since a lot of my meta plays stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth, Scourge of Valkas, ect as wincons. HOWEVER, I like Gather Specimens and Desertion. I'll definitely consider them.

Bribery should be under envy, since you're staking something that's someone else's. Also Gather Specimens and Desertion are great envy cards. I feel like Roast would be a total meme in a deck like this, even if it's not that good, it's always fun to roast someone's creature and then make a joke about it lol. Also maybe run Norin the Wary, under pride, because he's useless and you're proud of it. Anyways I'll comment again should anything come to mind, this deck looks fantastic, great work with the theme!

It returns to the control of the player with the most recent control-changing effect in place, or it's owner if there isn't any. There is actually no technical difference between auras like Mind Control and other control-changing effects, as the aura's effect doesn't "overwrite" anything (or otherwise, you wouldn't be able to steal it with Act of Treason in the first place). The only difference is that the control-changing effect doesn't last until end of turn, but only as long as the aura remains attached.
To give an example:
- player B casts Bribery, pulling any random creature from player A's deck. This control-changing effect lasts indefinitely.
- on player C's turn, they cast Mind Control on that creature, taking control over it. Bribery's control-changing effect is still in place, but overwritten by the more recent Mind Control effect.
- on player D's turn, they cast Act of Treason on the same creature. Again, both previous control-changing effects are in place, yet Act is the most recent, so it takes precedence. In the cleanup step, control of the creature returns to player C (who's Mind Control is now the most recent active control-changing effect).
- On player A's turn, they activate Homeward Path's second ability, creating a control-changing effect for all creatures, which also lasts indefinitely and is most recent, so even though Mind Control remains attached, it doesn't do a whole lot at this point.

....Bribery, Blatant Thievery, Cruel Entertainment, Spelltwine, Overburden, Pendrell Mists, Dissipation Field, Metallurgic Summonings, Hero's Downfall, Jace, the Mind Sculptor is always great but especially so here I think. He does everything from stacking your deck with cards from your hand to resetting Jeleva by bouncing her to hand to fatesealing opponents to know what they have to steal, Time Warp and all its variations are awesome for free, Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Thran Dynamo, Rhystic Study, Cyclonic Rift, and i agree with Scroll Rack.
Lots of changes to consider! Good luck and have fun with all that :)

I still feel like it's not worth it to build Marchesa as a Twin deck when decks with more colors can play the Twin plan faster and more consistently. The commander really supports an all-in build-around plan. Something like Mindslicer or Apocalypse will usually win you the game as long as you get your value engine online, and cutting slow duds like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed lets your deck be mostly cantrips and value creatures which can quickly find your 1-card wincons.
Anyway, tappedout pinged me, so i'm back again to plead and beg you to at least play Dark Confidant, Trinket Mage, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Metamorph, Mindslicer, and Bribery. They're all, in my humble opinion, far too good to pass up on in any Marchesa deck. Trinket Mage getting Mana Crypt or Sol Ring is a thousand times better than a 2 mana rock (that you're playing instead of curving out with creatures) and Mindslicer is a pretty easy way to beat Bojuka Bog and other reactive nonsense, and before I start ranting again, I'll suggest cutting Olivia, Yahenni, Grimgrin, Treasonous Ogre, Blood Artist, Martyr of Frost, and River Kelpie, which I consider your worst 7 non-combo cards, but also consider dropping all the combos and just going with the "I win" spells.
It's also possible that I place too much emphasis on Marchesa in my playstyle, and I've certainly played games where the table made me their enemy and shut down my value engine, so maybe playing a combo backup plan is worth it. It just feels to me like if you're playing creature combo you should be playing some sort of green deck for Birthing Pod or Survival of the Fittest or Food Chain etc etc

The deck you are describing sounds exactly like what I used to run so I'm just going to post my favorite cards from it here. Memory Plunder, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Diluvian Primordial, Sepulchral Primordial, Silent-Blade Oni, Mindleech Mass, Thada Adel, AcquisitorNightveil Specter, Knowledge Exploitation, Praetor's Grasp, Bribery, Blatant Thievery, and as said earlier Geth, Lord of the Vault. Green doesn't really have much in the thieving department but it does have ramp and non-creature removal which are both very important in commander.

Ok this is a strange deck. it s really political and difficult to be play.The strategy of the deck is to put pieces which slows my opponents and build with the enchantment a wall of protection on myself, after that I Have all time for defeat my opponents in different way playing creatures like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight for example or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite too. In other case I could steal or copy my opponents resources with Bribery or cards like Progenitor Mimictoo. Rhonas the Indomitable is very dangerous with the number of mana I could have in this deck and sometimes with my General I Could win by Voltron.Starfield of Nyx the main reason which I play that card is to "Reanimate" my enchantments over and over again and with Defense of the Heart it makes funny tricks.I had to think on the change of Lotus the only reasons which I haven't change it yet it s because when you do Lotus I don t go tappedout but I know Geoscope fixing better the mana then Lotus.

I run Archfiend of Depravity over Rune Scarred. I also include Sheoldred to make them sac a creature each upkeep. To keep from being overwhelmed by tokens, that I don't want to waste Merieke ability on, I run Eye of Singularity. Pemmin's Aura is an auto include for me due to its' multiple abilities. Etherium Sculptor is another way I deal with artifacts and creatures. Merciless Eviction gives you multiple options (all with exile) that might take place of Wrath of God. Same reason I run Austere Command in my deck. I try to force my opponents to focus on everything that I have on the board more than Merieke. That said, I run Bribery, Treachery, Steal Artifact, Steal Enchantment,Copy Artifact, Copy Enchantment,Preacher and Seasinger.
