Last One Standing Discussion

Daedalus19876 I totally agree. Maybe i've just had some rough experiences with Last One Standing in the past, but you bring up a valid point. Regarding the board wipe, I feel you should give Damnation a shot, as hopefully you hit some early ramp, which makes it a whole lot more viable.
It shouldn't hurt to essentially have a higher costed lili that has a bonkers ult that will ate the very least eat a Utter End or another removal spell which makes way for Kroxa.
I played this deck yesterday irl with a proxy Kroxa, and I slotted in angrath, and i didn't feel too underwhelmed. He got some work done, and I would certainly try to find a slot for him. If you don't want to cut Last One Standing maybe consider cutting Key to the City .
I know it's a solid card, but being two mana down on your untap without that much ramp doesn't seem very ideal, but I guess getting to discard and draw a additional card seems deece.
Another card to consider would be Rotting Regisaur . Lets you discard cards to Kroxa's escape, plus a 7/6 body as soon as turn 2 can be huge in battering down player's life totals for Kroxa to make short work of the rest of the table.
Kinda off topic, but what do you think of Dragonlord Dromoka stax/hatebears/pillowfort?

Whirlwind_2100: In all seriousness, I should test Angrath. But I feel like Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip might be better in that slot -- I can play her, drop Kroxa and let him self-sacrifice, then flip her and get a token. Her +2 is pretty great, and both of her minus abilities are brutal.
I really don't want to pay 9 mana for a board wipe, though. (And if I did, Decree of Pain is my go-to.) Last One Standing isn't really meant to deal with one huge voltron threat, it's meant to be a very low-cmc answer to a large number of distinct mid-sized threats.

Waste Not can make a ton of blockers, plus you'll probably have tutored for Waste Not in the earlier turns, which means by the time you curve into angrath, you will most likely have 3-4 zombies. Either way, this is the ideal situation, so angrath is still very debatable.
If I was to put Angrath, the Flame-Chained , I would consider cutting Last One Standing . Reason i say this is that unless you can get an early Waste Not , your board will be fairly small,a nd you'll most likely only have Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger out, making that 8/8 Uril, the Miststalker even more liley to stick around while you cry in a corner.
Alright; thanks for reading =)

This is really interesting! Gonna keep it in mind when I start building my own Kroxa deck. I love that you used Last One Standing , it's sort of a pet card of mine and I think should see more play.
It's a strange deck, so it's hard to form a proper opinion until seeing it played, but I definitely think it looks cool. Makes me excited to get my own built!
(Also, I'm now gonna have to picture Kroxa shouting "feed me" in Audrey II's voice every time I cast him haha)

Nice start. I do have a few suggestions to help you lower your avg. cmc though and I'll try to break it down by category and suggest a cut.
Draw: Midnight Reaper , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , and Skullclamp for Butcher of Malakir (Grave Pact if your mana can handle it but Butcher is overcosted and susceptible to more removal), Bedevil (versatile but single use and not abuseable here), and Necropolis Regent (Really good at what it does but there's better finishers for Marchesa).
Control: Glen Elendra Archmage (combos with Mikaeus and Goblin Bombardment also) for Mystic Confluence (Glen Elendra gets multiple uses, Confluence only 1).
Boardwipes: Last One Standing and Jokulhaups for Decree of Pain (You won't need extra cards with Jokulhaups and it's cheaper to cast) and Polymorphists Gest (Last One Standing is the same cost but effects all opponents rather than 1).
Discard: Sadistic Hypnotist and Oona's Blackguard (discard helps seal up games tighter than a dolphin's butthole) for Vilis (Marchesa does better with cheap aggro) and Underworld Connections (You'll have better results out of resource denial than a single use per turn draw).

I have several suggestions for you but this is a good start. I'll try to keep my recommendations budget(ish) friendly and I'll break it down by category.
If you're picking up what I'm putting down let me know, I can continue. I've played Marchesa for several years now and have one of the top rated decks on this site.

Ok, I have a few suggestions for you. I also run Marchesa but it's more of an oppresive etb/death trigger abuse with a side of aggro.
First suggestion isn't really a suggestion lol. Spark Double copies Marchesa for double Dethrone, the copies protect one another, and the copy enters already protected. Get it in here asap... thank me later. Herald of Secret Streams falls into this category of 'not a suggestion' too lol.
Boardwipes: 3 opponents can play stuff faster than you can steal it sometimes. Blasphemous Act , Last One Standing , and Jokulhaups are really good budget friendly options. Fire Covenant is better in competitive metas with lots of small utilty creatures.
Sac Outlets: Goblin Bombardment is hard for some colors to get rid of. Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Falkenrath Aristocrat both have haste so they get an immediate counter and they protect themselves.
I'm sure there's several other options I'm missing... feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

I feel like you're a little too focused on creature theft and are missing out on a lot of gems that Marchesa has to take advantage of. The other problem with too much focus on theft is that decks that're light on creatures don't give you many options to further your own gameplan.
First, get Spark Double in here. Copy Marchesa for double dethrone, the 2 Marchesas protect each other, and the copy immediately protects itself... all of which are just as gross as they sound.
Flayer of the Hatebound with a sac outlet is 36 damage to any targets per round in a 4 player game.
This one's a bigger change. There's cards like Sage of Fables and Metallic Mimic that can be used to abuse ETB/Death triggers on everyone's turn like Vindictive Lich , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Baleful Strix , etc. This is more the focus that my personal list has.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's one of the top rated lists on this site and there's lots of discussion to look through for even more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them
