Falkenrath Torturer Discussion

Yeah after some play testing, I decided that Falkenrath Torturer wasn't cutting it, so I scrapped him. I'll have to try out Xathrid Necromancer and see how it plays. My hope is that 3 of Falkenrath Aristocrat will be enough. I always run into the problem of wanting too many things for a deck and stretching my options too thin so I can't run playsets. Haha
Thanks for the tips and for taking a look!

Cool deck! Good idea for a budget version. I have a little advice to make it a bit more competitive if you would like! Lingering Souls is one of the better cards in modern, especially in this deck. You should try to play 4 if possible. Falkenrath Torturer is easily the worst of your Aristocrats. So if you ever look to cut any, that would be the one. Gather the Townsfolk is usually a better card than Thatcher Revolt. It may be worth playing 4 of the Gather. Finally, Xathrid Necromancer might be very good in this version of the deck. I would think about adding a couple. With Gather the Townsfolk, Doomed Traveler, Cartel Aristocrat, and Zulaport Cutthroat it will be very useful.

Great deck, +1! I'd suggest dropping Mogis's Marauder and add Falkenrath Torturer, its essentially an alternative win-con and with the human tribal aspect you have going on, he is a flying Nantuko Husk.
Here is my version of this type of deck I built a while ago. Tomorrow is a Latter Day!

You also could add Falkenrath Torturer for a huge scary flying dude that can be buffed a ton! With no cost to sacrifice!!! I choose him because you have a lot of humans that could be worth sacrificing!

B4BY3ATER Thanks for your support buddy. I must say I do start loving Marchesa more and more as well. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Sure is a must have for any respectable Marchesa deck. But as my mate has him as a commander [http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/zombie-tribal-mikaeus/] I want to be the gent and keep his Commander out of my crew.
I really like the Ob Nixilis, Unshackled but running a Sidisi, Undead Vizier I'd feel like quite a massive asshole preventing them from finding cracks in my net whilst I tutor for my stuff in their turns.
Blade of the Bloodchief is also looking swell it sure suits my Falkenrath Torturer making sure he gets his +1/+1 out of juggling with Arcbounds.I really like the Aura Thief in your marchesa-the-big-black-deck that one is definetally joining my bunch of Mischief.
Speaking about my bunch of Mischief here we got Arcbound Slith Arcbound Stinger and Arcbound Worker these three together are always up to no good. They don't seem like much being a total of 5 mana for 3 +1/+1 counters. But here lies maybe the most mischievous and hidden plot of my deck. As when all three of them get together behind Marchesa's shade they are most adapt at their work. Stealing +1/+1 counters from my graveyard that is.
You'll see Slith and Stinger heading into my graveyard first after my 2cnd Main Worker being the loyal friend holding all +3/+3 tokens on his shoulders. Geralf's Messenger sleepy as ever just bounces up from his chest to give a message 2 you. They come back before the Opponents turn both having dug up another +1/+1 token. They stay around to take care of their Mistress for when Marchesa's around they don't bother how they get to the +1/+1 tokens by making Viscera Seer see more value than a Sensei's Divining Top or by taking that fist full of death from Grave Titan.
Back at Marchesa's feet are the three that have been up to no good again at the start of Opponent2's turn. Now carrying around +5/+5 tokens Arcbound Worker's Shoulders start to feel heavy. Geralf's Messenger shows his sleepy head again sharing yet another message. Frost Titan crashes the party lookin at Bloodflow Connoisseur He decides he definetally wants to tap dat. Marchesa say's no and sends her away to gather new tokens. Viscera Seer tells Sidisi, Undead Vizier to dig deep. Helium Squirter jumps into the pits of hell ass well to get some fresh Squirts. Arcbound Worker decides he'll go for a dive as well and makes Arcbound Stinger fly with +7/+7 as Arcbound Slith follows.
Helium Squirter Comes back first lookin all squirty. Bloodflow Connoisseur and Sidisi, Undead Vizier followed by kicking Helium Squirter straight back into his doom he gives Marchesa a strange bundle relic.Arcbound's work their way to Marchesa curious about what Sidisi found in his moment of trancendence.
Opponent3 Ob Nixilis, Unshackled Finds out he's just a lil late for the party lookin at Sidisi, Undead Vizier's smile he regrets not staying at home for netflix and chills.Arcbound Slith and Arcbound Worker jump right in and come out quickly after together with Helium Squirter. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled as he flexes his musles twice.
Marchesa, the Black Rose stands upon her throne and throws Deathrender into the mix of maniacs. Arcbound Stinger now a +9/+9 tries to pick it up. As he asks Helium Squirter for a squirt of power Thraximundar screaming:"HERE'SS THRAXI!!" . Arcbound Slith was left to pick up the bits making him +10/+10 Spawning Pit puked 2/2 spawns all over the place. Bloodflow Connoisseur smashes them all to pieces. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled wished he really had stayed at home for netflix and chills as Thraximundar Started moving his way. He ran home to his shackles. Arcbound Slith pummeld Opponent in the face for +11/+11.
from 3 x1 to 1x12
Geralf's Messenger finally woke up.
Arcbound Worker Decided he'd go and find more +1/+1 counters
