Feast on the Fallen Discussion

Looking good so far I'll just add a few notes if thats ok. Probably replace one of those Acquire with Bribery. Coalition Relic is strictly better than Obelisk of Grixis. While Dragon Blood isn't the worst I think Unspeakable Symbol is most likely better (6 mana for the first +1 counter is rough) especially since you need kinda low life to trigger dethrone. Feast on the Fallen is a card that seems good but that I don't super like since to get max value out of it relies on your opponents attacking each other instead of you. Finally Fork or Twincast are always better than Doublecast.
I did not know this until today, not only does Marchesa's ability effect herself but it still triggers if she herself isn't on the battlefield so wrath effects like Damnation,Toxic Deluge and Blasphemous Act will basically only effect your opponents.
Soul Channeling is some sweet old school tech but I'd rather get haste so you can get those counters on asap since once they're on your team is safe, Fervor and Lightning Greaves are classics, Bloodsworn Steward, Urabrask the Hidden, and Dragonlord Kolaghan are also fair options.
On the creature front I won't say too much more other than maybe cosider a few cards that just get +1/+1 counters in other ways like Scourge of the Throne, Markov Blademaster, and Taurean Mauler. Although none of those are compulsory inclusions by any means.

I completely agree that the pirates tribe plays better with Marchesa over Beckett Brass. BB just doesnt seem to have enough synergy and also requires more effort, which usually requires more card slots, which isn't a good thing. Removing Thassa, God of the Sea for Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a great move. I'm mostly using Feast on the Fallen, Unspeakable Symbol, and Curse of Stalked Prey to get the counters on stuff (which i see you are using 2/3). I also threw in more stuff that pays life Dire Fleet Ravager, Phyrexian Purge, Toxic Deluge, etc.
Funny enough, I thought the Deadeye-Marionette combo would be my top wincon also but it has yet to come out.
Definitely agree with Diabolic Intent over Diabolic Tutor. I'm using Rhystic Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition for tutors. Rhystic seems silly, and that's because it is, but I enjoy the politics that stems from it.
Anyway, please check out my pirate deck! I'll take advice and feedback even though it seems we aren't totally going for the same thing.

I recommend Feast on the Fallen it can help for free +1/+1 counters on your creatures

Conquering Manticore, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, Feast on the Fallen, All Is Dust, Obliterate, Obelisk of Grixis, Darksteel Ingot, Nevinyrral's Disk, Sepulchral Primordial, Stingmoggie, Panharmonicon, Drakestown Forgotten, Dominus of Fealty, and Olivia Voldaren are what I'd suggest for cuts.
One addition I forgot to recommend though... Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. You have flayer of the hatebound already, so you should know how gross undying is here.

Press into Service is +1/+1 counter steal spell that I forgot!
Hmmm. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed,Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Feast on the Fallen seem like good options. Maybe Simic Fluxmage or Olivia, Mobilized for War, though I don't like the discard, but if you have Necropotence and the like that can be mitigated somewhat. It also occurred to me that Herald of Secret Streams and Flayer of the Hatebound might be good in here!

Those are some cards to also consider, I've also been looking at Brave the Sands. With which Dolmen Gate lowers the use of Iroas, God of Victory. Though Always Watching is a nice buff since I took out Feast on the Fallen. I've got a lot to consider, and thank you all for the suggestions.

I generally don't have trouble Dethroning people. I'm not sure if you abuse your Pain Lands and the like, but you can still Pain yourself with them to lower your Life Total on command. I often don't have a Turn 1 play, but if I Fetch+Shock myself to 37, I'll be off the Throne on Turn 1. Then I can Fetch+Shock again or just keep using my Pain Lands to get down low enough to Dethrone for awhile. I noticed that you're not running City of Brass, Ancient Tomb, Polluted Delta, Scalding Tarn, or Talisman of Dominance / Talisman of Indulgence. If the issue is money, then you do you man. However, City of Brass could easily swap for Crosis's Catacombs and you could swap the 2 Talismans in for Dimir Signet and Rakdos Signet.
As for gaining +1/+1 counters off the Throne, it seems that we both have all of the same Utility Cards: Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Feast on the Fallen, Unspeakable Symbol, Vigean Graftmage, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Sage of Fables, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Metallic Mimic. I may be a bit bias on the subject since my playgroup is mainly Combo oriented. I hardly ever win through Combat as I mainly use it for Dethrone value. Everyone has a few Infinite Combos in their Deck, so not everyone is always attacking, thus allowing me to manipulate Life Totals by myself. I know that, when my playgroup was more Creature and Combat based, it was much harder to always be off the Throne and stay alive through it all.

@Jpegwun, I'd recommend you proxy the Deck IRL or playtest it on Cockatrice before buying-in. Marchesa has been my bae since I started playing EDH and I know that she's the perfect Commander for me. Whether she's fun or not will depend on your playstyle and your preferences.
I play Marchesa as a value Engine. You can recur creatures with ETBs to generate a bunch of value through this Engine. For Example: Baleful Strix ETBs and draws a Card. You attack with Strix to trigger Dethrone (While Marchesa is out), then sacrifice the Strix on your 2nd Main Phase. On your End Step, Strix will recur itself, netting you another Card and whatever the output of your Sac Outlet is. This Engine can be looped for as long as you can Dethrone and only gets more insane as you add in more pieces. Add Grave Pact to cause an edict effect every loop. Add Grim Haruspex to draw an additional Card each loop. Add Flayer of the Hatebound to throw around some damage each loop, etc etc. Also, remember that Marchesa will protect herself with her own ability.
The standard loop can be repeated once every round. However, if you add Vigean Graftmage, Unspeakable Symbol, Feast on the Fallen, or Olivia, Mobilized for War, you can repeat the loop on every turn, generating 4 loops of the Engine every round. There's a bunch of stuff that you can add to make the Engine more and more insane. Then finally, when you've generated a bunch of value, you Combo off using a combination of Cards from the "Combo" section of my Decklist. You create a loop where a Wizard with Persist will never die, and you generate Infinite outputs depending on the Sac Outlet being used: Mana, Damage, Mill, Draw, etc etc.
Lastly, things like Karn Liberated, Chain of Vapor, Chaos Warp, and Venser, Shaper Savant are all included so that I can hit Enchantments. My group plays hard-Stax and I need to be able to remove a Rest in Peace. You can change and remove these, along with expensive Cards like Sneak Attack and Mana Crypt to suit your playgroup's and your own needs. I also ran Bearer of the Heavens before Razaketh as a mass-enchantment boardwipe that also ends the game.
