Consecrated Sphinx Discussion

Yesterday on If you control a Thought ...

4 days ago

As I understand it, if you control Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar and a Consecrated Sphinx, if an opponent draws a card then functionally you get to filter the top three cards of your deck twice, because you would get to draw two cards from Consecrated Sphinx, and filter three instead of drawing one from the effects of Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar.

If you have a Thought Reflection and Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar on the battlefield and would draw a card, do you get to filter twice after applying Thought Reflection's ability and then the ability of Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar to the two cards you would draw? Or must you chose only a single "replacement effect" to apply?

For disclosure I guess I'm a little fuzzy on replacement effects. I understand the concept of Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar's effect replacing the act of drawing a card. I don't understand how Thought Reflection causing you to draw two cards as a replacement for drawing a card doesn't then trigger itself again as you go to draw two cards. As a replacement effect, is it immune to triggering another replacement effect?

Consecrated Sphinx is as good draw engine.

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa

Ok, there are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (Cards like: Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards). The problem is, these cards hardly do anything other than putting counters on themselves. Their pretty much duds. So to make up for this, people will put in good sac outlets, (Cards like: Mind Slash, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Attrition, etc.) This type of deck gets its engine running STRICTLY from it's sac outlets, (NOT FROM ITS CREATURES) and because of this, it is a bit more reliant on its commander.

The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck is not RELYING on its sac outlets, (although it does have a few) but rather on the ETB/graveyard triggers of creatures (Cards like: Mulldrifter and Harvester of Souls). With this type of deck, you're also not fully relying on your commander. Marchesa is just a perk. If you don't have her out, you can still play your creatures and benefit from them.

Also keep in mind, that it isn't too hard getting +1/+1 counters on your creatures just using the dethrone ability itself. I find that most, if not all the time, you will NOT be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.

This is the Marchesa deck that I personally made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

Some cards that I would highly recommend putting in the deck are:
- Sneak Attack
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Demonic Tutor
- Necropotence
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Diabolic Intent
- Mind Slash
- Thalakos Deceiver
- Phyrexian Tower
- Scourge of the Throne
NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are good cards to help abuse the ETB triggers.
