Have you thought about putting Recruiter of the Guard in the deck since it searches for Karmic Guide , Stoneforge Mystic , Boreas Charger , and Burnished Hart

You might want a little more ramp since you don't have much currently. Myriad Landscape , Burnished Hart and Solemn Simulacrum work in almost any deck. Dark Ritual and Crypt Ghast are good in any black deck.

Is there a reason Burnished Hart isn't on here? It seems to fit pretty cleanly into your criteria.

Dango on Kozilek - Work in Progress

This is an obvious copy and paste of the Kozi list that Game Knights posted (Ashlen's Kozilek I Game Knights #24) with some minor changes so far, and that's fine and all but I think you should issue some credit to them in the description for where you found the inspiration and core of the list from. I'm not calling you out by any means, I just think you should link the source of what opted you to make these recent changes is all. At least do that until you get this deck into a state of finality and it molds into its own identity after you do some necessary tuning and playtesting with it.

For starters, I think you need to add some more basic Wastes . I know that may seem like a weird suggestion being in colorless, but you're running Burnished Hart , Solemn Simulacrum , Thaumatic Compass  Flip and Pilgrim's Eye . In the presence of those cards, as well as other effects that opponents often pack such as Path to Exile , Assassin's Trophy , and many others, only having 5 targets to hit makes those cards borderline useless at a certain point. I would recommend making some cuts to your utility lands in favor of 8-12 Wastes to get into a comfortable position to run the fetch cards you're using.

I personally am not a fan of Kozilek's Channeler because creature-based ramp is susceptible to boardwipes, and on top of that, a 5CMC 4/4 with summoning sickness that can only tap for two mana doesn't feel like a lot of payoff. I would recommend Golden Guardian  Flip as an alternative sort of pet card because it has potential utility for removal, and you either use it as fodder and intentionally kill it to flip it, or you can activate it in response to a boardwipe to get a land that taps for two mana and begin spewing out 4/4 tokens.

For the rest, I will just highlight the specific flex spot cards that you are running from the Game Knights list that I would recommend switching out to test other things: Energy Chamber , God-Pharoah's Gift, Lux Cannon , Nevinyrral's Disk / Oblivion Stone / Perilous Vault (unless you feel like you need a bunch of boardwipes), All Is Dust should be enough for you though), Orbs of Warding , Staff of Nin , Tamiyo's Journal , and Ugin's Nexus . These are all okay to run, but I think you should consider trying out other things to replace these slots. Here is a link to an EDHREC page for suggested cards you may be interested in. I'm not sure exactly what specific card suggestions to offer because I don't know what direction you want to go into. It's very important to have a considerate amount of ramp in a deck like this though. That should be your main priority in order to consistently get your commander and other threats out early.

Real Quick I want to say thank you so much for all your help, I am already feeling much better about this deck. I finally bit the bullet and took out some of the high mana cost cards and filled out my lands a bit more. Keep hitting me with that constructive criticism! Also please hop over to my deck

to give lots of feedback learning is what I am here for!

To address some comments:

Last_Laugh Your feedback has been incredible thanks a lot, although I am largely trying to avoid artifacts (too much removal) Last One Standing and Jokulhaups will be incredible additions, and I will be using your awesome deck Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them as reference, I encourage anyone reading this to .

Jaypay1994 Thanks for pointing out the land issue I didn't even notice lol, I swtiched out a ton of the tap lands for basics and nontapping split lands. All the tap lands that gave me little to no benefit are out. Next time I go to my local card shop I will absolutely pick of Burnished Hart and also I think the other best thing for my deck is Solemn Simulacrum (Since it is ETB), plus Ashnod's Altar will serve me very well.

Again thank you all so much

Don't forget to throw an upvote my way so more people can see it and people will give Marchesa the love she deserves.

Please everyone feel free to mention things that I should remove, it is really hard to pick what needs to come out when a deck feels like your baby, as I am sure you all know.

The lands don't have to be expensive. Not every deck has to have shocks and fetches (though they certainly help).

The battle lands are cheap Sunken Hollow and Smoldering Marsh . Check lands are a little more expensive Sulfur Falls , Dragonskull Summit , and Drowned Catacomb , so i could understand that those may not be in your immediate budget, but there's nothing wrong with saving up over time to invest in your deck. I build tons of decks, but only ever actually assemble them months at a time because i don't want to break my bank by investing all of my money into the game.

At the very least, you'll probably benefit more from having basics in your deck rather than tapped lands. but don't cut the cycle lands. Sure they come in tapped, but late game being able to cycle them away is important.

But yeah, just like the previous comment said, the signets, fellwar stone, and the talismans are a great starting point. Keep sol ring, but then consider including Wayfarer's Bauble and Burnished Hart as well.

Thanks for the tip TheNocholas. I do agree that Emeria, The Sky Ruin will be hard to pull off, but with how the deck is structured at the moment I feel that I need some graveyard recursion in the case a win-con like Laboratory Maniac or Sun Titan gets counter. To counteract the large number of plains needed I did try and add a fair amount of land tutoring via Solemn Simulacrum , Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Burnished Hart , and Land Tax . If have any ideas on what I could replace it with I would be happy to hear them.

As for your second question, I do believe a budget version is possible. The first things to replace would probably be Mana Crypt and Mana Vault , which can be about $150 by themselves, with some cheaper mana rocks, or maybe a Treasure Map  Flip, for those treasure tokens and extra card draw. Another card to go would be the Land Equilibrium . Other than that, I believe developing a cheaper land and getting rid of Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and Elspeth, Knight-Errant will also help to achieve your goal price as they are not necessary, just nice to have as teferi will help you leave mana for counter spells and Elspeth's -8 gives your lands indestructible so they do not blow up.
