Hixus, Prison Warden Discussion

Board wipes that seem "on theme" and white "ramp" to consider.

Queen Marchesa doesn't have a clear single way to build so you have lots of options. However, I feel like said you want to play her like the Kween she is and create a royal court full of politicin' and group interaction to make all the boys whine. I don't think you want to discourgage people from taking the monarch from you, more encourage them to swing others IE: NO Ghostly Prisons, YES Teysa effects. Punish the ones who swing you only after the fact and reward the ones who swing others. There is a lot listed!
You will also want to get retake the throne each turn and lets face it, the Assasin's won't always get through Dauthi Embrace Dauthi Trapper Nether Shadow Nether Traitor Soltari Visionary Changeling Outcast Tormented Soul Break Through the Line Ferropede Gingerbrute Key to the City Whispersilk Cloak Trailblazer's Boots Zhang He, Wei General Yellow Scarves Cavalry Wei Night Raiders Wei Scout Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior Shadow Alley Denizen

Legendary Creature- Beast Horror
First strike (because it can see in all directions), vigilance (same reason), haste (because they attack fast and without warning), flash (same reason), trample,
When ~ enters the battlefield, exile all creatures that are attacking you or blocking creatures you control (because of paralysis magic).
When ~ enters the battlefield, sacrifice all other creatures you control (because they are xenophobic).
Whenever a creature attacks you or becomes blocked by ~, tap that creature. It won't untap during its controller's untap step for as long as you control ~ (paralysis magic again).
Like a Hixus, Prison Warden, but better.
Is it missing something? Is it too good?

Update: I decided to make a Hixus, Prison Warden Oblivion Ring Tribal deck for the meme of it and it seems like a lot of fun so far. I want to get an alter of Hixus that's just the Monopoly "Go To Jail" tile.

Play lots of artifact ramp so you can afford your dinosaurs.
Red-White has lots of great creatures for attacking, like Aurelia, the Warleader, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Akiri, Line-Slinger, Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Anya, Merciless Angel, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Hixus, Prison Warden, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Odric, Master Tactician, Homura, Human Ascendant, and Urabrask the Hidden.
Good dinosaurs include Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Etali, Primal Storm, Bellowing Aegisaur, Goring Ceratops, Temple Altisaur, and Relentless Raptor. Iroas prevents damage to attacking creatures so Enrage effects on your dinosaurs won't trigger much.

Since I have already created threads that list commanders and planeswalkers by home plane, I shall now create a thread that lists legendary creatures who have appeared in core sets by home plane.
As with my previous lists, I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one legendary creature who has appeared in a core set alphabetically by name, and then list each legendary creature from that plane who has appeared in a core set alphabetically by name. If that creature is from a specific region of that plane or is a member of a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.
Barrin, Tolarian Archmage (Kjeldor, Terisiare)
Emiel the Blessed (Kjeldor)
Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse (Zhalfir, Jamuraa)
Kaervek, the Spiteful (Urborg)
Mangara, the Diplomat (Corondor)
Niambi, Esteemed Speaker (Femeref)
Radha, Heart of Keld (Skyshroud and Keld)
Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner (Zhalfir, Jamuraa)
Tinybones, Trinket Thief (Urborg)
What does everyone think of this list? Is it sufficiently informative? Have I improperly labeled any creatures? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you might want hatebear cards and global enchantments to slow the game down, or ways to punish people from attacking you. What about Ghostly Prison or Sphere of Safety or even a card like Hixus, Prison Warden? You can also try Mystic Barrier which can be ridiculously annoying. Also, Story Circle LOL
