Marchesa's Decree Discussion

shaftdiggity on Athreos' knights(EDH)

Dark Tutelage and Marchesa's Decree are cheap card draw, especially considering how much lifelink you have, and Phyrexian Arena would be nearly necessary as well. Phyrexian Reclamation would be an upgrade to tortured existence. Campaign of Vengeance and extort sources like Knight of Obligation and Blind Obedience would be great to attack their life by recasting you creatures. With Athreos at the helm, you could add up to 10 board wipes as they really don't affect you.

I have a cleric based athreos deck that's all about extort, board wipes, and cheap CMC.

I like the list man, but I can totally see some sweet upgrades for you (EVEN BUDGET ONES!)

  1. Executioner's Swing should really be Swords to Plowshares, since you really want cheap removal, the lifegain won't really matter in the long run.

  2. I really like the Extort theme here, but since most extort creatures won't protect you from big scary opponents, I'd recommend playing Crawlspace over Marchesa's Decree since it really stops opponents from getting in hits on you.

  3. While I get that with all the tokens, Altar's Reap is like a Divination, I'd really want to see Well of Lost Dreams in here with all this lifegain you have, as it could make this deck seriously powerful. (If you do play the Well of lost dreams, I sense a Reliquary Tower in your future.

  4. To me, Blood-Cursed Knight is pretty much draft-fodder, becuase as 3 cmc you could be playing Loxodon Warhammer and just have a way to give Karlov and any other heavy hitters trample and lifegain.

  5. While yes, you can pitch your lands to make a 1/1 every turn, you could just play, I'd say this card should be swapped out for something like Aetherflux Reservoir, which can win you games. (While you are token heavy, Whip of Erebos could also be strong.

  6. I suppose that with enough tokens, Zealous Persecution would be decent, but if you were to play Authority of the Consuls or Blood Artist I think you'd have more success in the life you need to trigger other cards (I could also see Whitesun's Passage getting swapped for another card, but direct lifegain might be goof enough that it works.

  7. Throne of the High City could be fun if you want to continue keeping monarch as a fun theme to have.

  8. Some other cards for your consideration are Sun Titan, Banishing Light, Vindicate, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Divinity of PrideDictate of Erebos, and Rhox Faithmender

  9. If you'd like more suggestions, just let me know buddy ;)

Okay. it seems like I need a lot more draw, so I'm going to move in the direction of permanents that draw cards, because they work better with malfegor. I'm also getting rid of a bunch more discard spells, and a couple draw cards that I think could be better.

To that end, I'm taking out: Sandstone Oracle, Skeletal Scrying, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Loreseeker's Stone, Promise of Power, Skull Rend, Disciple of Bolas, and Syphon Mind.

I'm putting in, Skullclamp, Arguel's Blood Fast, Thorn of the Black Rose, Crown-Hunter Hireling, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Marchesa's Decree, and Corpse Augur.

I'm also taking out Crypt Incursion and Mountain for Rakdos Charm and Throne of the High City.

I think that Hissing Miasma is enough for that deck. Marchesa's Decree and Blood Reckoning cost 1 more mana and do almost the same thing, so I think that would be a waste of precious slots. Gonti's Machinations and Subversion are very interesting cards, i'll keep them for when I need to gain more life. Thank you!

Ziembski thank for your suggestions. I like Marchesa's Decree i can replace Hissing Miasma with this but only one of those cards type ("being attacked life lose") is enough because they are important only vs aggro decks, but they are not vs control decks with only 15 creatures or vs voltron decks. Gonti's Machinations, Palace Siege and Subversion are very powerful cards but i play cards with "players can't gain life" so, for a card that could only lose life points (if i have Sulfuric Vortex in the battlefield for ex.) is not a good choice. I think that cards like Spellshock and Underworld Dreams are better vs decks that play many spell and that draws a lot of cards ( my meta have less aggro than control decks :) ). However which changes would you suggest?

How about all those "being attacked life lose" like Hissing Miasma - Marchesa's Decree and Blood Reckoning?

Gonti's Machinations is really cheap and effective drain in multiplayer EDH.

Subversion for more drain?
