Marchesa's Decree Discussion

You clearly love politics and I have a few politics cards you might like. Bite of the Black Rose can poison your foes against one another. Cruel Entertainment will suddenly make allies out of people who have threatened to kill you. Tyrant's Choice gives them a choice between torture and death. You may also have use for Marchesa's Decree. If you have some time, would you review my Game of Marchesa deck, please?

I hope these suggestions have been of some use to you.

Never in my entire life did I imagine myself looking at contaminated bond and nettling curse and being like "Heck yeah those cards are gonna be awesome!"

You've truly created something outstanding here, friend, and I hope you're at least half as proud of it as I am excited about it.

That said:

Please update with some cool stories of playing this deck, I am intrigued to hear about how it does.

Unfourtanely, to me, Disrupt Decorum dosen't seem as needed when there is other ways to force creatures to attack. and I would prefer to play other items over Marchesa's Decree. I do have one other question though; do you think the creatures have are sufficient enough to survive a Thantis style, because that was one of my main concerns.

Have you considered Disrupt Decorum and Marchesa's Decree? They both seem good here.

Shizo, Death's Storehouse & Dauthi Embrace to give him pseudo evasion, Captive Flame & Ghitu War Cry to pump opponents, Marchesa's Decree & Hissing Miasma for pillowfort.

Some off the wall Suggestions:
Caltrops, Curse of Bounty (on yourself), Thunderstaff (maybe), Marchesa's Decree (over or in addition to Blood Reckoning), Crown of Doom (for giggles).
Good luck!

So right now I'm trying to decide between building Thantis the Warweaver


Legendary Creature - Spider

Vigilance, reach

All creatures attack each combat if able.

Whenever a creature attacks you or planeswalker you control, put a +1/+1 counter on Thantis the Warweaver.


OR Xantcha, Sleeper Agent

Help me pool some cards that would be good with either of these guys to help me narrow down my choice.

For Thantis, obviously effects like Blood Reckoning, Marchesa's Decree, or even some cards like Hunted Horror or Hunted Troll seem good.

For Xantcha I could focus on assisting Xantcha in combat with things like Fists of the Demigod, or focus on creating ludicrous amounts of mana to drain its controller and draw tons of cards.

Anybody have any other good suggestions on individual cards or overall themes to build these two around? Any and all help is appreciated!

Nice deck man! Badass names always get me.

I, as you did, dwelled many times into the realm of Mill in EDH: I hope to be helpful.

I'd suggest you to remove Throne of the God-Pharaoh, since you want to keep your creatures up for defense, and just tap them to mill with Phenax's effect right before the start of your turn (last opponent's end step). Probably you are more concerned on attacking than I do with my deck, but still.

I'd suggest swapping out Blood Reckoning for Marchesa's Decree, since the second one does exactly the same thing plus making you the Monarch. Other such cards that love combat hate are: Propaganda, Silent Arbiter, Riddlekeeper, Collective Restraint (even though it's pricy).

I'll take into consideration some of your cards for my personal mill deck. Feel free to take a look at mine, so that you can get inspired too!
