No Mercy Discussion
1 day ago
I really like the Repercussion kill, I will try that out. Koskun Falls is a card i didnt know exsisted, and I like it! A black Propaganda, pretty cool! I dont run No Mercy because it kills a couple of my creatures like Zo-Zu the Punisher and Heartless Hidetsugu, and Everlasting Torment stops me from gaining life, which is really bad since I hurt myself a lot, and I need all the life gain I can get without sacrificing dealing damage as often as possible.

You may already be aware, but Repercussion becomes a win con if you have no creatures and cast Blasphemous Act. Everlasting Torment and Embermaw Hellion would also be a good fit for this deck. Koskun Falls and No Mercy could be good ways to keep damage you take to a minimum.

For other win con cards: Dread acts as a second No Mercy and his Fear ability usually means he is unblockable. Luminarch Ascension can provide you with a massive angel army. People won't be attacking you much so it is relatively easy to get the necessary quest counters. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is both political and a win con. She incentivizes people into attacking each other for the double damage.
I personally would take out Lightning Bolt. Not enough of an effect for commander. Also Peacekeeper could go. You WANT other people attacking each other. Odric, Lunarch Marshal is a great card but your deck isn't really built around him.
Hope this helps. Chec out my deck at Marchesa, Political Queen of Pillows

Thanks for commenting Spudding,
I agree with the switch, although I am feeling lately like switching Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, and Doubling Cube, Mana Reflection, for Mana Flare, Dictate of Karametra, and Heartbeat of Spring. I have been running into difficulty giving my opponents extra mana....
With all the fetches i have been finding that Caged Sun nets me between 3-4 extra mana, which I agree isn't efficient enough. I think I may end up adding in a Mind Stone to replace it with card draw instead. Do you have any other Mana recommendations? Sans combos.
I am right in the middle of a restructuring of the deck. In many multiplayer games I end up using the "non-threatening" tactic allowing my opponents to be more concerned with other threats. I'm looking at adding about ten-eleven pillow-fort cards;
What do you think?
Sorry for the novel! I was right in the process of editing it.

Shield of the Righteous was never the target I'd hit when I tutored and the deck has 7 other Vigilance sources.
Silverblade Paladin was not able to be found with a tutor and represented a card where I would prefer anything else in the deck.

Would definitely recommend adding in some 'pillow forty' cards. No Mercy, Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety are all good candidates. Check out Oversold Cemetery and Tortured Existence too for recurring creature recycling. Ivory Mask can help if you find people are targeting your graveyard. BW has many great enchantments to protect yourself and I would recommend including some more. Academy Rector and Idyllic Tutor can help with consistency, but an enchantment toolbox could help protect what you are doing. Vindicate is less pricey following it's reprint and Utter End is a great card too. Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a great land in reanimator style decks with white, as is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers. Last but not least, consider Iona, Shield of Emeria, Rune-Scarred Demon, Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Angel of Despair as some great reanimator targets.
Deck seems a little unfocused and I think you could benefit from focusing on the specific theme. Some cards like Dark Ritual and the planeswalkers feel either redundant or not as impactful as you would like. I also think, if you're going reanimator, try running Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter as the general while removing the life gain aspect for cards like Bloodghast and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. The lifegain just seems like a sub-theme.
Just some suggestions, hope that helps!

I like your deck quite a bit. It's an interesting take on Marchesa but I don't see any definite win cons in your deck. Consider adding in a Master of Cruelties or a few harder hitting creatures. I don't expect Assemble the Legion to remain on the field long enough to allow you to be able to win off it. The token aspect is alright, but it lacks the ability to hit hard and kill. If you want to keep that, consider throwing in Coat of Arms. Felidar sovereign is an interesting inclusion but he'll be hard to keep on the field for a full rotation to your upkeep in multiplayer unless you have a way to cheat him in (Vedalken Orrery or Quicksilver Amulet. If you are dedicated to the life gain mechanic, you'll need stronger pillow fort to keep it up. Toss in Authority of the Consuls for bonus life gain (This is especially useful against token decks) and consider cards like No Mercy and Norn's Annex to keep the life you're gaining. As a bonus, this makes it easier to keep the monarch to yourself.
I built my own Marchesa deck awhile back and I still make tweaks to it from time to time.
