Oona's Blackguard Discussion

I don't want to seem overly critical but you really need to lower the avg. cmc of your creatures by a LOT. You're currently at 4.62 avg. cmc on your creatures which is astronomically high.

You have a total of 5 creatures that cost or less and by comparison you have 17 creatures that cost to mana. This will result in VERY clunky opening hands where you consistently aren't doing anything for the first several turns and you'll hardly ever reach that sweet spot where you're able to chain multiple spells on the same turn.

Here's a list of all the and under creatures in my Marchesa list and her maybeboard that are $5 or less. Baleful Strix, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Grim Haruspex, Legion Loyalist, Liliana's Standard Bearer, Midnight Reaper, Oona's Blackguard, Sage of Fables, Vigean Graftmage, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Burglar Rat, Chasm Skulker, Fulminator Mage, and Judith, the Scourge Diva. I would cut from the top of your curve and work you way down.

Like I said, just trying to help. Feel free to check out my list for inspiration, it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site and there's also a decent sized maybeboard and over 90 comments to sift through for more ideas.

Try Jokulhaups in Torment of Hailfire's slot. It's terribly mean but you'll end the game within a few turns assuming your opponents don't scoop.

Discard is incredibly effective here also. Vindictive Lich, Oona's Blackguard, and Sadistic Hypnotist are the best of the bunch here.

Feel free to check out my list (assuming you haven't already, there's a lot of similarities). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

Last_Laugh Thanks for your comments. To your suggestions:

Spellskite: seems like a perfect card for Marchesa. I will put this in. :D

Metallic Mimic: same as spellskite. I will put this in. Seems really strong!

Glen Elendra Archmage: i thought about this card already and the potential lock. For me it is not fun to play such a lock since i want a good time with my playgroup. :D Similar reasons with Oona's Blackguard/Sadistic Hypnotist. Discard seems a good control aspect but put instantly me as a target. I have to figure it out if and how i can use these in the future.

Sower of Temptation:Was one of the last cuts for me. My thinking with Thalakos Deceiver is that he fits very well in this deck for some reasons. First he can sac himself what i already want to get him back. Second he synergies very well with Marchesa's dethrone ability. Give him the +1+1counter and sac him afterwards. But i need to test it to evaluate the card.

Fleshwrither: Seems good with all the 4 drops. I personally like to play with no or less tutors which makes every game quite diffrent. I guess for mimic and spellskite i will drop one or two 4 drops.

About Vicious Shadows and Stolen Strategy: Vicious shadows is a card i want to build around for a long time. Since my playgroup will draw a lot of cards this card seems good within this deck to punished it. Stolen strategy is one of my pet cards :D It works kinda with the theme of the deck and is usefull for card draw/advantage and removal!! because the cards stay at exile :D

Btw. I checked and upvote your list out and i think it is really good and a nice name :D

I am looking at giving them a try in modern with some mill theme shenanigans while poking and prodding with small, evasive creatures. Most of what I am considering right now are faeries (Oona's Blackguard and Faerie Impostor, for example) and getting multiple Thieves' Guild Enforcers online, especially with Phantasmal Image seems to me to be able to play a solid game, at least against decks without many creatures.

Nice deck, it's similar to my build but mine is less theft focused. I like the inclusion of Invasion Plans here. I do have a few suggestions for both cuts and additions.

Suggestions:

Spellskite helps protect Marchesa and you can redirect the same spell/ability on the stack as many times as needed to set your life where you want it.

Metallic Mimic allows you to abuse any etb/death trigger on everyone's turn instead of once per round. Just sac Mimic to reset the creature type as needed.

Glen Elendra Archmage is a counterspell on a stick that also doubles as a combo piece with Mikaeus and a free sac outlet. Infinite mana with Phyrexian/Ashnod's, infinite damage w/ Goblin Bombardment, and infinite mill with Altar of Dementia.

Legion Loyalist is a pet card of mine here. First strike + trample out of relatively nowhere is great thanks to haste. The tokens can't block part has saved my butt more often than I thought it would also.

Oona's Blackguard/Sadistic Hypnotist - Discard helps seal up games tighter than a Dolphin's butthole.

Cuts: Burnished Heart/Solemn Simulacrum are both too slow here imo. Feast on the Fallen is another card you won't miss much, it looks better on paper. At 7 mana Vicious Shadows should damn near win you the game but doesn't have nearly that impact. Thalakos Deceiver is probably your worst theft effect (maybe Sower of Temptation instead). Stolen Strategy also seems very mana intensive and awkward to find the right time to spend 5 mana on it, but I've admittedly never tried it.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas, it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site and has tons of posts to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

Last_Laugh on I've got a very tiny bone to pick with you

Sadistic Hypnotist can empty a hand real quick. Noxious Toad's oracle text is each opponent discards. Also, if there's any sort of +1+1 counter theme going on here (I hate custom categories...) Oona's Blackguard puts in some work.

I personally play Grixis discard with Marchesa, the Black Rose at the helm. Mines more of an etb/death trigger abuse deck though. Hand Hate Marchesa if you feel like taking a gander.

Yeah, Thieves' Guild Enforcer is going to go in, giving me some 1 drops, and that makes me wonder about Cloak and Dagger, which can be annoying, either being too narrow or still too small. Bad Moon might actually be more consistently useful, since I tend to go wide rather than tall, and though I love having Shroud on an Oona's Blackguard, I don't feel it consistently works out that way.
