Scytec on Douchey Deck Help?

I like the Harmless Offering. :p However the Pact would probably just kill me because counter magic is fairly prevalent in my meta. Thanks for the suggestions!

Demonic Pact and Harmless Offering. It's not very chaotic, but it does make the opponent lose.

I've been thinking about this problem...I think that the issue lies in the fact that there are different types of extra cost abilities...allow me to explain...

  1. "The mana cost of spells and abilities you control can’t change." counters Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, but not Leonin Arbiter or Mana Tithe.

  2. "If a spell or ability an opponent controls would cause you to pay any amount of mana, you instead pay ." counters Mana Tithe, but not Thalia, Guardian of Thraben or Leonin Arbiter.

  3. ": Add . Spend this mana only on effects you don't control." counters Mana Tithe and Leonin Arbiter but not Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (and has potential issues in Modern).

The closest I think we can get to the desired effect is by combining effects 1 and 3, and trying to make combos with it unplayable in modern. Mostly, it can't be 2CMC, otherwise we could use Muddle the Mixture to find missing combo pieces and a finisher, and protect the combo. It also can't be colorless, otherwise Tron decks risk having sideboards that are too good.

As far as Legacy, I see no issues with this countering Minds Aglow(and similar cards), since that card would need to be cast by an opponent, unless someone used Hive Mind(or Harmless Offering. In that case, it's a 3-card combo and I don't care.

ArmorEuro Oh, yeah thats right. Well, one could still use Donate and Harmless Offering to give away Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom during the main phase before combat, and then declare a however many triggers on Frenetic Efreet and deck the opponent, right? Would be useful if you cant get to Laboratory Maniac

Scytec on Queen Marchesa Orders You to Slap

So the basic idea being that you would pick a card in your deck that when played allocated you the monarch title. I'll use Palace Sentinels as an example. When you play Sentinels you will become the monarch, however, afterwards, were you to play Harmless Offering you could give your opponent control of Sentinels, forcing them to become the monarch, allowing you to take full advantage of Queen Marchesa's ability. The monarch concept is not very prevalent, so it is quit unlikely you will face an opponent with the ability to make themselves the monarch. This is unfortunate as it means you commander will very rarely be able to utilize her full abilities. This would allow you a bit more control of the game state if you could decide if and when it was convenient for your opponent to be the monarch.

So the deck started off with making a pillowfort, but that just led to people not attacking. I want everyone to attack and at the same time make it difficult or impossible to attack me. If people are forced to attack with their creatures and it's impossible to attack me, I'll come out on top of the heap.

Also, could you go into more detail about the Harmless Offering idea? I'm not sure what you're getting at.
