TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa

1 day ago

I see that this deck isn't finished yet, so I will just give you some general advise.

There are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (like Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards). The problem is, these cards hardly do anything other than putting counters on themselves. Their pretty much duds. So to make up for this, people will put in good sac outlets, cards like Mind Slash, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Attrition, etc. This type of deck gets its engine running STRICTLY from it's sac outlets, (NOT FROM ITS CREATURES) and because of this, it is a bit more reliant on it's commander.

The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck IS NOT relying on its sac outlets, but rather on the ETB triggers of creatures. With this type of deck, you're not fully relying on your commander. Marchesa is just a perk. If you don't have her out, you can still play your creatures and benefit from them.

This is the Marchesa deck that I personally made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

Some cards that I would highly recommend putting in the deck are:
- Necropotence
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Demonic Tutor
- River Kelpie
- Diabolic Intent
- Harvester of Souls
- Grim Haruspex
- Grimgrin, Corpse-Born
- Mind Slash
- Flayer of the Hatebound
- Glen Elendra Archmage
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Grave Betrayal
- Sneak Attack
- Thraximundar
- Scourge of the Throne
- Thalakos Deceiver
- Phyrexian Tower
NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are also good cards to put in.

Attrition and Mind Slash turn your tokens into useful effects.

Aura Shards does an amazing job at getting rid of enchantments and artifacts.

Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Martyr's Bond, and Butcher of Malakir turn Ghave into ": Each opponent sacrifices a creature".

Beastmaster Ascension is disgusting with tokens. Collective Blessing provides a similar boost (without the trample).

Mind Slash is a good sac outlet.

Thalakos Deceiver is a phenomenal control card for a marchesa deck.

Sneak Attack is also a must have in any marchesa deck.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is amazing!

Necropotence, Harvester of Souls, and Consecrated Sphinx are good draw cards.

Thraximundar, Flayer of the Hatebound, Glen Elendra Archmage, Scourge of the Throne, River Kelpie, and Grave Betrayal, are also powerful cards to have in a marchesa deck.

If you need more suggestions, this is the marchesa deck that i made.

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa's Madness

I understand that you want to make this deck heavily vampire based, however you might want to consider adding in a few creatures that arn't vampires. Below are cards that i personally like to run.

Mind Slash is a good sac outlet.

Thalakos Deceiver is a phenomenal control card for a marchesa deck.

Sneak Attack is also a must have in any marchesa deck.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is amazing!

Disciple of Bolas, Necropotence, Harvester of Souls, and Consecrated Sphinx are good draw cards.

Thraximundar, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Flayer of the Hatebound, Glen Elendra Archmage, Scourge of the Throne, River Kelpie, Grave Betrayal, Harvester of Souls, and Dack's Duplicate are also powerful cards to have in a marchesa deck.

If you need more suggestions, this is the marchesa deck that i made.

I see that you have a lot of ETB creatures, so I would recommend putting in Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication to abuse these effects.

You should definately consider putting in Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in you deck instead or your sideboard

Mind Slash is another good sac outlet that I would highly recommend.

Sneak Attack combos well with marchesa's ability.

I would also recammend putting Rune-Scarred Demon, Grave Betrayal, Scourge of the Throne, and Thraximundar in the deck.

This is the deck that i created for Marchesa, your welcome to look at it for suggestions
