Diaochan, Artful Beauty Discussion

Chompythebeast on Queen Marchesa

Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are must-runs in black, but maybe belong on your "Sideboard" for now. Diabolic Intent is also super good with tokens and might be cheap enough to run outright. Enlightened Tutor has enough targets in your deck also.

Other general bombs: Catastrophe (an incredible wipe in general, often slept upon), Axis of Mortality (wtf why does nobody run this, you should exercise your queenly authority and tell people that their life total now belongs to the crown), Solemn Simulacrum (ramp in non-green, though sadly in the same slot as your gen at 4 mana), Vedalken Orrery (surprise! always good), Exquisite Blood (biiiig time lifegain, can be a ridiculous difference maker)

Nobles: Falkenrath Aristocrat, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell. I dunno though. At least the Aristocrat is a hawt mamma.

Tokens: Anger, Filth (combos huge with anyone playing Urborg, or even just any black deck), Archetype of Aggression (Trample combos really well with Deathtouch, since you only need to deal one damage to the creature to be lethal and the rest of the damage tramples over), Archetype of Finality, Street Riot, Berserkers' Onslaught, Rage Reflection, Brave the Sands (Vigilance also combos really well First Strike + Death Touch, as does being able to block multiple creatures—basically a wall effect like Norn's Annex), Eldrazi Monument (very cool with token generation), Goblin War Drums, Intimidation, Mirror Entity, Nahiri, Storm of Stone (cutie Nahiri!), Radiant Destiny, Silverwing Squadron (token time), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Goads, pretty damn good card, seems popular in Marchesa decks), Skullclamp (big time card draw for your 1/1 tokens), Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs (another wall/token generator), Anointed Procession (double tokens!)

Other Royal Shit: Dreadhorde Invasion (creates Armies (fun flavor), tokens, Lifelink potential), Mobilized District (makes Citizen land, big flavor), Giant Killer (removal + Peasant + taps), Sengir Autocrat (SERFS!!), Righteous War (wild flavor, pretty solid evasion, gives your general Protection from Black AND White, could actually be a huge sleeper card), Stronghold Assassin (also an Assassin, obviously)

Powerful Women & Bad Bitches: Imposing Sovereign (also a Noble), Linden, the Steadfast Queen (also a noble), Agent of Masks (also an Advisor + "Aristocrats" staple), Diaochan, Artful Beauty (also an Advisor, could be neat with Hexproof lol), Masako the Humorless (also an Advisor, also fucking savage holy shit look at her), Orzhov Advokist (I know you've got it in the Maybelist, but it's so on-theme and it may or may not be better than Norn's Annex), Teysa Karlov (also an Advisor, great for tokens, you already have her other baller version), Etali, Primal Storm (I dunno, Elder, he's good), Zetalpa, Primal Dawn (same as before, also she's probably female so yeah), Massacre Girl (also an Assassin), Avatar of Woe, Silent Assassin (also a sexy Assassin), Thorn of the Black Rose (also an Assassin, themey, weak though, I suppose), Adriana, Captain of the Guard (wild with wide/tokens), angelic field marshall, Dark Impostor (also an Assassin), Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Stoneforge Mystic (big time with equipments, seriously some formats have called for her to be banned she's such a bad girl) Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Twilight Prophet (woah)

Tax/Bones: Kambal, Consul of Allocation (seriously amazing, most Marchesa decks run it, also an Advisor), Sheoldred, Whispering One, Urabrask the Hidden, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Pontiff of Blight (biiig beef, Marchesa controls the church), Wound Reflection (serious finisher, should really consider), Dictate of Erebos, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Fate Unraveler, Ankh of Mishra, Polluted Bonds (Ankh of Mishra on steroids, actually pretty broken card overall, probably should strongly consider it)

Multiplayer Shenanigans: Scandalmonger, Warmonger, and Wishmonger (wild times, probably too wild but they can be game finishers in weird ways); Varchild's War-Riders, Assault Suit, Goblin Assassin (also an Assassin), Embereth Skyblazer

Auras/Equipment: Kusari-Gama (super savage with Deathtouch), Helm of the Host (big theme on the flavor text, also a great card in general), Tenza, Godo's Maul, Angelic Destiny, Argentum Armor, Battle Mastery, Blackblade Reforged (a gen-equiping classic), Blessing of Leeches (Instant-speed free regeneration? This is another sleeper card, and it even has an amazing feminie art), Shadowspear, Colossus Hammer (kinda amazing with your gen), Embercleave, Whispersilk Cloak (you know Marches owns one of these), Fireshrieker (beefer)

How about adding Diaochan, Artful Beauty as either a Submissive or Dom, she sways people to kill for her.

I think this deck is looking good! I do think a Where Ancients Tread , Warstorm Surge and Diaochan, Artful Beauty might be good additions to the deck.

I hope this helps! If you have some time to spare, I would love your thoughts on my Nightmares deck

DrukenReaps on A More Destructive Mairsil

Hellos peeps!

I've got 3 cards coming in the mail for my Should I Pretend This Or That? Mairsil, the Pretender deck. They are Steel Hellkite, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, and Jaya Ballard, Task Mage. I think these could be amongst the better additions for removal that I've made to the deck but I've got no idea what to pull out to make room and could use suggestions for cuts.

Any help is appreciated! Other thoughts are welcome too. Thanks.

Thank you for commenting!

My deck tries to make others co-responsible for the outcome of my cards. Instead of Guided Passage, Intuition and Distant Memories I could have just put in stuff like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor, but would take away the politics.

Not only the tutors follow these principles, but the same goes for mass removal Magister of Worth, Coercive Portal, Austere Command, land destruction Bend or Break, spot removal Council's Judgment, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, and reanimation Dawnbreak Reclaimer.

Another part of the deck is about making friends so I have some influence on their choices. I can do so by giving away tokens, life, counters, cards etc.

Overall the rest of the deck is mana fixing, drawing and pillow forting.

I'm still make a lot of changes after each game. Running 5 colours gives you so many options.

I like your take on Karona, although it's it's really different from mine. You really went for the wall tribal theme. I can imagine that it's fun to play. You're not really a threat early in the game and quite annoying to deal with later on. If you haven't done so already, check this Karona Defender Build on Youtube

You want BROKEN?!?!?! Here are a few broken creatures. Narset, Enlightened Master, Arcum Dagsson, Athreos, God of Passage with shadowborn apostles, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice infect, Karametra, God of Harvests Enchantress goes broken with pillow forting and I can give you a goo combo for it if interested, Fumiko the Low Blood + goblins, and last but not least Sliver Overlord. And this is in my opinion but just remember. You can have a $1,000 deck but still lose to a $200-300 deck.
