Greater Gargadon Discussion

Zaane2 on Marchesa the Immortal Rose

@Jaefarlii I appreciate you linking the credit to me in your description and I'm glad you've gotten Marchesa to a place that you can enjoy. As long as Marchesa is complete, all of my changes and updates will always be displayed here.

For starters, I think that the number of sac outlets you have is completely reasonable. I actually added even more to my list because I realized how heavily reliant I am on having one in play. You can't loop creatures and do shenanigans without a sac outlet, and having more than one in play makes it much harder to stop the value loops. I also stopped counting Sidisi, Undead Vizier and the like as Sac Outlets because they're not repeatable. The value loops only happen if you have one that's repeatable. It appeared that I had a lot more than I actually did because I was counting non-repeatable sac outlets into the total number. Once I added more repeatable ones, my loops became much more consistent.

A few things in that thread are also outdated. I had to cut Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and Greater Gargadon because, while they were fun, they weren't insanely good. As my list has become more and more tuned, I've had to drop things that were more fun than good when looking for space. You can see my current list reflecting that.

Lastly, I wouldn't consider Expedition Map as Ramp. Map acts as Mana-fixing rather than Mana-ramp. However, I do think it's always a good idea to run Map in Decks that really want to abuse Cabal Coffers.

If you need anything else, just let me know.

Love that little trick you found here... but why is the Greater Gargadon yellow??

Thanks for the comment! I didn't even consider switching the fetch lands! I just happen to own Scalding Tarns IRL that I picked up back when the original Zendikar was in Standard. I'll definitely swap them out.

I'm also a huge fan of Greater Gargadon. The more I think about it, the more I am liking him in combination with Temur Battle Rage.

Wow, really like the deck! I clicked because of the Greater Gargadon feature image, haha. One thing from your description though... You claim that you can't make this deck any more budget- Just swap the x3 Scalding Tarn for x3 Wooded Foothills to knock $120 off the price (considering you don't run blue)?

You could try Greater Gargadon, since it can get suspended on turn 1.

It feels a little light on ways to get lands into your graveyard to be running 4 Splendid Reclamation. I tried adding Ghost Quarter (taking out 3 bounce lands) and Edge of Autumn (-1 Amulet, -1 Reclamation, -1 Harmonize) and liked the results.

I love to brew with Greater Gargadon and Second Sunrise and my brain was coming out of my ears one game where I had Gitrog and multiple amulets. Pretty fun!

You have to select the target of an ability when you put it on the stack, this is before it resolves.

I can't think of a good line to combo off without a sacrifice outlet. Maybe just start using Greater Gargadon as a sacrifice outlet and suspend him right before you plan on comboing off.

One great trick in red is suspend Greater Gargadon maybe sac some artifacts(or just wait it out) the play Decree of wipe the entire board and everyone's hand and you end up with a 9/7 on the board
