Marionette Master Discussion

Funkydiscogod on Need suggestions for abusing Revel ...

20 hours ago

Here's some ideas:

Disciple of the Vault and Marionette Master don't mind sacrificing treasure.

If an opponent has a poison counter, Throne of Geth can proliferate them to death. Throw in some planeswalkers for bonus points proliferating loyalty. Are there any energy cards worth proliferating?

Dovescape with Revel in Riches is almost a combo. I think Pestilence Demon would help? Or would a Enduring Ideal shell work better, since you can fetch Trove of Temptation and slowly win?

What about self-giving creatures like Sleeper Agent or Akroan Horse? They give the opponent the incentive to kill their own critter, so we don't have to waste removal on it.

Sending a Jinxed Idol to the opponent would encourage them to sacrifice their own critters to prevent the damage, but speed up the Treasure clock. Seems like it would be too casual.

Marionette Master as another wincon?

geekoftheagesMarionette Master for sure. Went off 6 times tonight. Herald of Anguish is getting pulled. Likely going to use Prosperous Pirates in place or Torment of Hailfire maybe. Sideboard was perfect. Did exactly as needed. Crook of Condemnation even saw action against GPG tonight and came in clutch.

QL1Max I appreciate your feedback, and I at least agree on the Prying Blade part. I added it to see how it would fare, but the only time any of these creatures would attack would be if you had a butt-load of servos and just stampede over your opponent. As for the other cards, if this was just a token deck, then they would probably already be in here. Unfortunately, Mechanized Production and Marionette Master specify artifacts, so I'm limiting this deck to artifact tokens.

As for the sideboard, I just put up cards because people were clamoring that it needed one. The thing is, though, I believe that sideboards should be player specific, so if you make this deck, or a version of it, go ahead and add them. I really couldn't care less about the sideboard. These are just kinds of cards I imagine are useful in a sideboard that also pertain to the maindeck.

I moved Deadeye Plunderers to the side board along with Captain Lannery Storm, Swashbuckling and a few others. decided to add some larger cards like Angrath's Marauders, Dire Fleet Ravager, and Marionette Master. Before it seemed like it was hard to win unless i got enough treasure and drew a Mechanized Production or Revel in Riches. now with these larger pirates I have other options to win and with Marionette Master you can sacrifice 5 treasure artifacts to win alone. Also added one Tezzeret the Schemer planeswalker. Seems to be working well with the first few tests I have done. Let me know if you have any recommendations after the changes.

That's a cop-out reply if I ever saw one AgentGreen.

Not enough removal? 4 board wipes, 6 creature removal with 4 more in the sideboard? Plus some deathtouch? How much more would you run?

The goal is to get out Revel in Riches and board wipe creatures. Leaving an indestructible, pumped Yahenni, Undying Partisan on the board and swing with him. Hopefully I'll be close to winning via treasure. Backup wincon after wiping is dropping Marionette Master and saccing all my Treasure.

Hi UnlimitedFlour

I suspect that my go at pirates here is not quite representative of pirates in Ixalan.

You are right about needing more mana fixing. I have that atuff spread thin right now and should definitely add more (or find a way to be 2 colors if I can't).

There is more treasure production in the sideboard but it depends alot on Captain Lannery Storm, Spell Swindle, and opponent's creatures dying (sideboard cards).In the current standard you should test your merfolk against treasure decks running Marionette Master and Mechanized Production because they are way more explosive and make more treasure.

I am also noticing the big creature issue vs dinosaurs. I want to add more Walk the Plank for that (and pumped up merfolk).

Thanks for the comments! I have found some of the same things so this is a WIP. It has some good matchups but I wouldn't consider it competitive (just tabletop casual) or the best way to go treasure at the present moment.

Could someone please explain to me how Marionette Master works with treasure? Since they're tokens, I didn't think they entered the battlefield. Don't they just get exiled/disappear entirely after being sacrificed?
