MatsuriFramboise on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

My (again, inexperienced) concern about the Ogre Slumlord is that it triggers whenever any nontoken creature dies, which means when a boardwipe happens, we get a bunch of non-deathtouch rats (unless they keep it when the slumlord dies?) that makes our board state look more threatening than we'd like it to be. Am I incorrect in that assessment?

Yeah I guess you can describe it as carrot and stick- motivate your enemies to attack each other and deter them from attacking you. Avoid cards that draw hate your way if you can, but find ways to benefit from the other action on the board. I think Ogre Slumlord and Ophiomancer are two of my favorite cards on your list as they keep reproducing goodness/defenses.

@xSKINCOLLECTORx,

Ogre Slumlord is invaluable in comparison to Pawn of Ulamog or Sifter of Skulls, in the sense that his ability triggers on opponents creatures as well as your own. He is well worth the higher CMC.

A critical mechanic of Yahenni of the Endless Offerings (EDH) is for opponents to be forced into sacrificing their creatures.

Equally as critical is for the player to also have creatures to sacrifice. As much as the utility of the Eldrazi Scions and Spawns is enjoyable, and as you mentioned invaluable in certain situations; it is important to have creatures to react to sacrifice triggers.

An Eldrazi Scion or Spawn lose their value when they are targeted with spells like Altar's Reap, or used for activated abilities such as Attrition or Vampiric Rites. Whereas a 1/1 Rat Creature Token from Ogre Slumlord I can sacrifice without a second thought.

This deck has a strong focus on knowing when sacrifice and when not to.

Again, I will still strongly consider Pawn of Ulamog in the future, and I do appreciate your time and recommendations.

Getting feedback or hearing more ideas is one of the best ways to craft the most intricate decks.

I agree with you completely, I ran both in a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker deck. I originally had Ogre Slumlord but the mana the scions/spawns generate is invaluable! I only mentioned both because I ran both for redundancy

@xSKINCOLLECTORx,

Thank you for your recommendations,

  • Ogre Slumlord was already part of the original deck list.

  • I had originally considered Pawn of Ulamog in the original deck list, but it hadn't made it to the final cut. I will consider it again in the future. It will be added to the maybe board.

  • Sifter of Skulls is a strictly worse version of Pawn of Ulamog (in my own honest opinion), and probably won't be considered above or alongside Pawn of Ulamog; having two of the same delayed abilities is redundant.
