cdkime on All is dust vs gift ...

Shady78 is correct. All Is Dust causes all coloured permanents to be sacrificed simultaneously. As such, Gift of Immortality will "see" the fact the creature died simultaneously with it, and its ability will still trigger even though it also was sacrificed.

Compare to Austere Command . With command, you perform the actions as ordered on the card. If Gift is on a CMC 1 creature, and Enchantments and CMC 3 or less are chosen, first you destroy all enchantments, since that is printed first on the card; then you destroy all creatures. Since enchantments were destroyed first, Gift would be gone by the time the creature was destroyed, and thus would not trigger upon the creature's death.

Technically, it is an Aura and is attached to the creature permanent until removed or the creature is put in the graveyard. It resolves at the same time so I believe that Gift of Immortality would still be able to activate its ability.

If my opponent used All Is Dust , can i declare that my creature would die first so that both creature and Gift of Immortality will already be out of battlefield and prevent immortality from being destroyed?

Nzero on Interaction between Twilight Shepherd and ...

Sorry if this is too basic of a question, but I've been searching and can't find the answer.

With a card like Twilight Shepherd , does its "persist" effect come before or after other cards that would bring it back? For instance, what happens if you have Gift of Immortality attached to it? Does it come back with the -1/-1 on it or is that prevented? Similarly, as another example, what happens if the Adarkar Valkyrie ability was used on it? Or what about cards that return all creatures that died during the turn, like Faith's Reward ?

Can someone tell me under what conditions the persist -1/-1 counter comes into play and when it doesn't?

Anything I can think of is already in my version. Although I have more removal that I can abuse with Sunforger . It is currently updated to modern horizons and I really enjoy how the deck runs. One thing I discovered is Skullclamp is overratted with queen marchesa. It seems like an auto include cause you can sac your 1/1 assassins to draw 2 cards but you value the extra draw for being the monarch more than the tokens. It was replaced in favor of other effects like Blind Obedience and Gift of Immortality . Also I had issues in the past with developing a win condition, I can only stall out my opponents for so long. I used cards like Asha's Favor and Sword of Vengeance . Cheap cards you can attach to your general that allow her to attack without your opponent wanting to block and you can get them back from the graveyard with Sun Titan . Against graveyard strategies I use Mimic Vat and Rakdos Charm I find rakdos charm is useful when my opponents try to go for combos too. I can surprise kill them when they try to make X creatures or it can destroy an artifact at the very worst. I also recently added Kaya's Guile as another removal spell for creatures and graveyards. Here is a link to the deck and let me know what you think. Long Live The Queen

Mot much for me to add. Every card I thought xhould be in here already is.

A few minor quibbles though.

I'd do Authority of the Consuls over Blind Obedience Curse of Bounty or One with Nature over Cultivate etc

Maybe Open the Vaults ?

Gift of Immortality is a must if you're going to have Boonweaver Giant - with any sac outlet they give you infinite enchantment etb triggers.

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!
