Crescendo of War Discussion

Seabody on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

1 week ago

alexjustdoit - makes sense. Perhaps I'm underrating Vampire Nighthawk. I suppose the lifegain effects help a lot when you are running things like Acidic Soil & Price of Progress (which I am currently not) which also hurt you.

Have you tried Kunoros, Hound of Athreos? My meta probably isn't resilient enough to fight against strong hate or stax, but I like that this guy does other things and being a creature is easier to remove (as opposed to something like Rest in Peace which could just lock someone out and does nothing against decks that don't utilize the yard).

Abzkaban - interestingly I just had a commission done for a Cersei alter of Queen Marchessa with Gregor and Qyburn assassin tokens, so I'm taking a similar GoT theme with my list. I'll post me list with the alters on here shortly.

How great is the Solemnity/Dark Depths package? I'd like to try it out but will need to cut some things like Assemble the Legion, Selfless Squire & Crescendo of War.

Thoughts on Assault Suit in a combat oriented build?

SizzleySurprise on Marisi Naya Aggro

I'm in the process of making a Marisi deck right now; I think I'm doing it a little differently - mostly trying to control combat, but I think there are a couple ideas that could interest you. Nahiri's Machinations, Duelist's Heritage (also cool that you can use it when your opponents are goaded into attacking each other), Invasion Plans makes it so your creatures can get through in a pinch, or let's you kill key creatures your opponents have. Bedlam has obvious synergy, Crescendo of War makes your opponents hurt each other more as well as your creatures, and then No Quarter gives you even more power with your big creatures. (Fight to the Death and Master Warcraft seem really fun, but I dunno if they'll make the cut... I want them to, though. haha.)

I like your deck, I got some good ideas from it, so thanks!

For more productive conversation, it is hard to say with mono-white. There are a couple of auto-includes. Smothering Tithe. Mistmeadow Skulk is fun. A whole lot of vigilance (other heliod) is incredibly rattlesnakey when you have this access to lifelink. Crescendo of War is just an amazing good time. Parhelion II is a fun pet-card. All the stuff that punishes/taxes non-creature play can be fun: Deafening Silence & friends.

king-saproling First of all, thanks for the many suggestions !

I really like Bident of Thassa and Coastal Piracy for the card draw they give. Furthermore I think Crescendo of War , Seal of Cleansing and Shared Triumph are great additions! I will add them to the maybeboard since I dont own them yet.

Oh and also Distand Melody! Awesome Card!

Yep, they definitely are. Alot of sweepers followed up with walker-locks. This strategy has increased the demand for me to have more burst-draw, non-creature permanent disruption, and haste/instant use creatures. Green-style dorkramp just does not work within my meta. The cool thing about your token strategy though (I've done this a few times) is that you can really just push out lame tokens in a control heavy game & force the opponents to use their sweeps on your garbage at some point. Done that a few times now with those drag-out games with Castle Ardenvale where I just hold the threats in my hand and just activate that every turn with something like Crescendo of War out. Kindof a fun & unusual way to play to have some early aggro on-board & then also be able to grind it out against some more controlly stuff.

Yo! Thran Quarry , Reflecting Pool , Opal Palace , Holdout Settlement , and/or Unknown Shores instead of the 3c enter tapped lands? Ramos, Dragon Engine could be a nice color fix too, especially if you wanted to go for a way to boost counters.

Siren's Call and Alpha Brawl could be funny. I seem to remember a cheaper version of Insurrection, but I can't think of it right now.

The "gift" destruction cards could be neat, flavor wise: Generous Gift , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Curse of the Swine , Beast Within , Terastodon , and even Swan Song .

Not sure Debt to the Deathless is doing much, but I'm probably missing something.

Other group-hug cards to consider Spurnmage Advocate , Skyscribing , Vision Skeins , Trade Secrets , Crescendo of War , and the good ol' Vow enchantment cards.
