Hello m8,
the following cards I need from your binder:
Griselbrand - 2x (MM)
Craterhoof Behemoth (MM)
Iona, Shield of Emeria (MM2)
Recruiter of the Guard
Entomb - 2x
Added value without shiping should be ~85$. Goyf should be at 90$. I'd be fine with that if you are. Let me know what you think.

Yeah, I guess your right with Maze of Ith, now I'm pretty stumped on how to deal with Master of Cruelties.

Oh and about Iona, Shield of Emeria I'm kinda against cards that are so broken that some players don't have fun anymore. My playgroups ok with her and that's just my personal taste.

The problem with Maze of Ith is, it doesn't remove Master of Cruelties from combat. If I can't block him, my life will still drop to 1.I pondered to put Iona, Shield of Emeria in, but I'm unsure because of her high mana cost. But it would help against all sorts of cards. Your opponents love to wipe the board with their mono-white deck? Name white. Or just the most popular color on the table...

Thank you a lot for the input, gentlemen!

No Mercy is a must have and I already put it in. I've simply forgotten of its existence. Other than that I'm still not very familiar with rakdos cards since I've always been playing selesnya or mono white. With this, Marchesa is even more challenging for me to build. AND this is why over 50% of the deck is white.

I will exchange some cards for the suggested ones for sure! I'm not sure of the transmuting tutors for now since I don't know which cards are doing what they should and which do not.
One is obvious -I need the ramp. I was just thinking about this earlier today. I will add in the signets and maybe some stones. Maybe the medallions would be ok in here?

I thought if another two cards: Iona, Shield of Emeria and Luminarch Ascension. They would both fit the theme and provide some offence but then again -thay are yet another white cards. I swear, if I could, I'd make Marchesa mono W! ;D

Thanks again, I'll keep my head busy with this one and certainly will report progress soon!

So I built Can't Touch Phage awhile back and it has been fun to pull out now and then. Problem is that it is just black good stuff. All I did to make it was decide Phage the Untouchable would be funny at the head of a deck and then threw in a bunch of black cards. I'm thinking maybe black voltron to give this deck more of a direction. It will remain black and unless you are extremely convincing it will continue to be led by phage. I have built some white voltron decks which is rather easy with all the equipment support in white but none of that exists in black. So what are some must haves for black voltron? Or would some other strategy be better suited to mono black? Also ways to deal with Iona, Shield of Emeria would be appreciated.
