Last_Laugh on Marchesa the Cheesy Winner

First let me start off with I'm trying to be helpful but it'll probably feel like I'm ripping the deck apart. Some of my advice isn't budget friendly but worth working up to if you like the deck. If you feel like skipping the rest and just checking out my list for ideas... Marchesa, The Roses' Thorn

I've been playing Marchesa for about 3 years now and my deck started out very similar to yours. I had a very high mana curve and a lot of splashy spells and creatures that did a LOT... but they cost a LOT too and my first 3 turns I had nothing to do and I rarely had a turn I could cast more than one spell.

Marchesa excels when you have synergy on board already and still play her on turn 3 or 4. I suggest dropping most of your 5+ cmc cards in favor of cards under 4 cmc like Baleful Strix, Fulminator Mage, Sage of Fables, Grim Haruspex, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Spellskite (redirect the same spell as many times as needed to drop off the throne), Oona's Blackguard, Metallic Mimic, Phantasmal Image, Phyrexian Metamorph, All 3 signets (in addition to talismans and sol ring), Toxic Deluge, Goblin Bombardment, Necropotence, and Phyrexian Altar.

As far as higher cost spells I'd suggest: Herald of Secret Streams, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Dack's Duplicate, Ogre Battledriver, Urabrask the Hidden, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Sneak Attack, and (this one's kinda douchey but amazingly effective) Jokulhaups.

Oona's Blackguard. With all the attacking +1/+1 counter creatures, if a player is forced to discard, they could discard a creature, and BAM! Exile.

First off, not sure why tappedout doesn't know this, but Sol Ring is banned in tiny leaders. Ainok Guide and Aquastrand Spider feel like they might just be too low impact cards, since they're pretty much just bodies with counters. Oona's Blackguard is a decent way to disrupt your opponent's hand that synergizes well with your deck. Ainok Bond-Kin makes your team more harder to block profitably, and Avatar of the Resolute could just be a strong beater. I like the idea of Durable Handicraft in here, since it lets you essentially spend an extra mana to upgrade any of your creatures, which can help you scale better into the late game.

Urabrask is much better but I run both though... haste is very valuable here.

As far as cuts, you seem to have a lot of high cmc cards. I'd cut Reef Worm, Necropolis Regent, Stalking Vengeance, Grave Betrayal, Sheoldred, Both planeswalkers, and Slave of Bolas.

I'd run more synergistic creatures, especially low cmc ones like Baleful Strix, Oona's Blackguard, Herald of Secret Streams, Dack's Duplicate, Phantasmal Image, Anger, and Spellskite (you can redirect the same spell on the stack as many times as you need to drop off the throne). I'm also curious, why no Gray Merchant of Asphodel? That card is stupid good here.

Inquisition of Kozilek. One person discard is fine in Standard and Modern, but terrible for multiplayer EDH. Discard should be happening on a bigger scale, and with +1/+1 counter strategies, Oona's Blackguard would be much better if you went down that path.

im not a faerie expert or all that competitive in general but i personally enjoy abusing the ETB effects from faeries and pairing them with Ninjas like Ninja of the Deep Hours/Mistblade Shinobi to get combat damage perks off the evasion of faeries and return them to your hand for recycling ETB effect from Thieving Sprite/Spellstutter Sprite....Triton Shorestalker is an epic evasion enabler if going this route and pairs well with Oona's Blackguard due to the rouge typing... same as Bitterblossom

Thanks for the comment Quicksilver.

Will check for Oona's Blackguard, Windswept Heath, and Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit with local players. Regarding the signets, I think I already have those. About Cathars' Crusade, my brother is already using it in his Iroas' deck and I am using Hardened Scales with my Ezuri, Claw of Progress. But that deck is not yet updated.
