Debtors' Knell Discussion
1 week ago
I've run a Queen Marchesa deck since it's realease, and it has a couple stand out cards that I think you'd appreciate. First of all, since monarch is not a permanent, one of the greatest value engines you can do is to play Marchesa then run a complete wrath package with Planar Cleansing then take advantage of the monarch while everybody rebuilds. Kaya, Ghost Assassin is pretty cheeky in the deck as you can wrath and save your commander, or Kaya. Gift of Immortality can be paired with a wrath, or a sacrifice outlet in order to get queenie back, and to ensure you keep monarch. Also Solitary Confinement can be a pretty big lockdown with this deck, it's not exactly cheap, but it is crazy good. Something like Debtors' Knell is great for rebuilding afterwards, too!

While I'm not certain it is the right move, I think Debtors' Knell while powerful is slow, and I think the Nim Deathmantle will serve itself better in that slot. As for what to cut for Massacre Girl , that is a far more difficult cut in my mind. I would probably argue that Sifter of Skulls is the cut though.

Yes i want to stay Mardu as everyone eles is either doing Neheb commander (at least in area) or angrath oathbreaker. And i fully admit that red and black are needed but even if you don add the white minotaurs having the boros combat tricks and support does alot of work and while not need having reusable grave recursion with Athreos, God of Passage , Sword of Light and Shadow , Debtors' Knell , and Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (though she only hits 7 of my creatures). and maybe Haunted Crossroads means you can attack without worrying about removal other than exile. and i guess this deck is less aggro and more mid to late game combat and kill

You seem to have a lot of high drops for an aggro deck. Some cards that I would cut would be Debtors' Knell ; it is just too slow for an aggro deck (especially since you have alesha), along with a lot of the other recursion cards. They work well in slower matches, but aggro is not the place for them. In addition, you will want to play as few tap lands as possible. Cut the bounce lands especially for fast lands like Concealed Courtyard . A lot of the minotaurs do nothing other than be minotaurs. I would cut those.
As for replacements, lower drop ramp spells to get your threats out faster (signets, Coldsteel Heart , Sol Ring , Mana Crypt if you have the money), cheap, fast card draw like Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood (NO Phyrexian Arena ), speedier removal (think Disenchant , not Return to Dust ). Depending on meta speed, you may want a Gorilla Shaman for 0 drop artifacts.
Hope this helps a bit.

frosthammer_eden You are absolutely right, correction made, tyvm.
lorenzo712 I've got Kaya's Wrath in the sideboard, and I am considering mainboarding it in lieu of Unbreakable Formation . I've definitely run into more situations where wiping the board is the more useful thing to do. While Debtors' Knell would be exceptionally useful, I was trying to play this deck with some other expensive enchantments like Open the Graves and Ethereal Absolution and found it just wasn't working. With the way Pitiless Pontiff winds up carrying things while ramping up, I always want to leave 1 mana open to keep her a threat during my opponent's turn, and this considerably slows things down. Essentially playing one turn behind curve, starting turn 3. Spending 5 or more mana on an enchantment that doesn't immediately effect the board state just isn't worth it. I'm making an exception for 2x Divine Visitation s but I don't want anything else at this point that costs more than 4. Thanks for the suggestions!
