Marchesa's Decree

Enchantment

When Marchesa's Decree enters the battlefield, you become the monarch.

Whenever a creature attacks you or a planeswalker you control, that creature's controller loses 1 life.

Suggested card replacements!

maybe cut 2 mana rocks in addition to the earlier notes I provided.

Thought Vessel --> Loxodon Warhammer

Worn Powerstone --> Gut Shot

The warhammer gives lifelink, super! Gut shot is nice cause you can fix your life total before switching 1, point for casting or 2, or 3 points if you target yourself for free.

Suture Priest --> Wall of Shards

Same drop slot and you stop opponents being able to manipulate their own life total by playing creatures.

Fireball --> Electrodominance

One more mana, and you get to cheat out Triskaidekaphobia or Axis of Mortality at instant speed.

Ill-Gotten Inheritance --> Necrologia

Too slow, and necrologia lets you draw a bunch of cards.

Marchesa's Decree --> Blood Celebrant

Again, you don't want them to fix their own life total themselves. Blood celebrant lets you fix your own and fixes mana, so good.

Syphon Mind --> Vexing Devil

I know you like the multiplayer discard, but I think vexing devil is better in this slot.

Swords to Plowshares --> Snuff Out

This is really up to you, I like the idea of trading life for creature removal but your mileage may vary.

Akroma's Vengeance --> Return to Dust

You run way too many tech enchantments that you want to be able to get back.

Chainer's Torment --> Restoration Specialist

not worth the life you put into it. Rootborn Defenses --> Unbreakable Formation

Just a strict upgrade IMO.

Lands:

Tainted Field Tainted Peak Spinerock Knoll Battlefield Forge Caves of Koilos Sulfurous Springs Mistveil Plains

cut basics? I like them because you can bring your life down, fix mana, cheat things out, and get instants back into your deck...

Some other ideas: Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , No Mercy , Marchesa's Decree , Dread , Vigor , Grenzo, Havoc Raiser , Royal Assassin , Pir, Imaginative Rascal , Awakening Zone , From Beyond , Dictate of Erebos , Dolmen Gate , AEther Membrane , Tree of Perdition , Whip of Erebos

Seem So-so: koskun falls - depends on number of players but not a lot of tax otherwise. Meren - doesn't work with tokens and not as a commander might not be worth it. Mogis - not much token syn. Dual nature - doesn't work with tokens. Greater good - the deck doesn't have a ton of big creatures to sac. Primal vigor - great syn but can be very dangerous. Yawgmoth's vile offering - not bad, but not a ton of legendary creatures in the deck.

Secondo me devi impostare il mazzo più verso il fare attaccare gli avversari tra loro e fargli perdere tempo per poi tirare fuori una finisher. Inoltre non hai nessun vantaggio dallo scartare, perché non hai cose come Liliana's Caress, wheels o carte con Madness, di conseguenza taglierei anche da quella parte. Quindi toglierei alcune delle carte tax che hai messo. Proporrei cose del genere:

  • Harsh Mentor -> Again, una tax abbastanza gratuita che però ti rende il tizio fastidioso #1. Non è ciò che vuoi, ti servono cose più subdole. Tipo Hunted Dragon.
  • Sire Of Insanity -> Spezza le tattiche a tutti, ma anche a te. Non lo ritengo utile, soprattutto perché non carte con madness, né carte sufficenti con flashback, emerge, ecc. Meglio un Combustible Gearhulk che ti fa pescare. In rosso. 6/6 first strike.
  • Dark Ritual -> Non è forte come Mana Geyser. Se non sei un mazzo combo, non te ne fai nulla di una carta così.
  • Hero's Downfall -> Ruinous Path e risparmi.
  • Rakdos Charm -> Nessuno dei sui effetti è così utile, se non forse esiliare il cimitero, but then again... Bojuka Bog?
  • Dreadbore -> Murder e risparmi.
  • Vandalblast -> Costa davvero tanto. Fai tu, ma non vedo tutta questa necessità di spaccare tutto. hai già molto removal per gli artefatti, potresti investire quei denari altrove.
  • War's Toll -> Heartless Hidetsugu è meglio non metterti un bersagio sulla testa grosso come war's toll. L'hidetsugu è più democratico.
  • Worn Powerstone -> Citadel of Pain perché la Powerstone fa schifo. Meglio una carta che gioca contro chi vuole fare il cheesy. Oppure Talisman of Indulgence.
  • Hissing Miasma -> Skyline Despot meglio avere più carte che ti rendono monarca che un side effect come questo enchantment. Se vogliono attaccarti, lo faranno comunque. L'unica ragione per cui invece Marchesa's Decree va bene è perché ti rende monarca.

Io tenterei di mettere tante carte che ti fanno rubare cose agli avversari, perché è un modo swag di rompere le balle. Ci sono così tante carte con questo effetto, che rischi di poter anche non mettere Insurrection, più che altro perché è difficile da trovare e costosa. Dico cose come:

Oltre a ciò, ti consiglio carte swag che sicuramente sono divertenti come:

Scusa se non ti ho commentato tutte le carte, ma sono un pelo di corsa. Ne possiamo piuttosto parlare quando ci vediamo.

The cards that I would personally recommend cutting are:

Helldozer: it would attract a lot of hate, and is really pretty slow to do much.

Phylactery Lich: a card that is almost exclusively stats, and just a 5/5 (even with indestructible) isn't usually that relevant.

Fated Return: 7 mana to resurrect a creature and maybe scry 2 just isn't that great in my opinion. If you're looking for something similar, I would recommend Rise of the Dark Realms. 2 more mana for all creatures instead of just one.

Curse of Shallow Graves: if I'm reading this correctly, this is only one 2/2 even if you attack with multiple creatures. And only attacking one player. And your opponents get it too.

Marchesa's Decree: conditional card draw with maybe some life loss? Ehhhh....

Trespasser's Curse: great against token decks, but largely irrelevant otherwise.

Mind Shatter: I think this could be good if you have a discard subtheme, which is definitely possible...maybe add a Sangromancer?

Cellar Door: way too inefficient...3 mana for maybe a 2/2?

Lich's Tomb: I think this is too risky and could easily blow you out

Another thing I'm noticing is the severe lack of ramp and card draw. There's plenty of Zombie synergy, but you're never going to get there if you have very little mana and an empty hand. I would recommended adding some Gilded Lotuses, Thran Dynamos, Worn Powerstones, Jet Medallion, as well as Phyrexian Arena or even Sign in Blood.

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!

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.

HOLY MOTHER OF BEANS THIS DECK LOOKS SO COOL.

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.
