Go for the Throat instead of doom blade

Modern is pretty much a turn 4 win format, so expensive mana cost cards that doesn't win you games are not awesome.

I would suggest to stay away from Oona, Queen of the Fae, I have a faerie deck and it never served me any purpose other than get killed or being a dead draw.

Concentrate is on the expensive side for a 4 CMC card. I would also consider Foresee to be much better in most cases.

Tragic Slip is a hit or miss and I would consider something more reliable because you can't have a creature die anytime you want to.

Faerie Miscreant is pretty good as 4x of.

Faeries are really weak and are more reliable with alot of control in the long run, so I would prefer more control over Favorable Winds.

-1 Oona's Blackguard + 1 Spellstutter Sprite

Thats what I think for now

MRDOOM3 on Marchesa EDH - To die or not to die

Drana, Liberator of Malakir works nicely with Marchesa's second ability. You can also consider Yahenni, Undying Partisan as well. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is extremely useful, so you can include him if you're willing to break the bank a little.

Dictate of Erebos is an instant-speed version of Grave Pact, so when someone blocks your guy with a bigger creature, just flash in Dictate for annoyance.

River Kelpie, Sage of Fables, Disciple of Bolas, and Grim Haruspex give nice card advantage. These are also somewhat synergistic with Chasm Skulker.

You can also try out Olivia, Mobilized for War (and/or Olivia Voldaren) and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born for some synergy with Marchesa.

Oona's Blackguard and Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch work as well.

For some more ETB damage, you can put in Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, and maybe Sneak Attack.

how much milage are you getting out of Oona's Blackguard? i personally really enjoy Mistbind Clique for my 3rd faerie slot. I would also, in the future, pick up some more copies of Vendilion Clique. Really helps with hand control, and is also a faerie.

I'm just trying it out right now. Oona's Blackguard isn't as punchy, but I've found this deck does very well in the long game. I'll trade off a huge trampling beater if it means my opponent doesn't have a hand anymore. I don't need much to keep building up a threatening board state.

Who knows though, I might revert back after giving it a shot tonight.

Icbrgr on What determines the order of ...

1 month ago

Alright I am playtesting a deck I made and need some help with a scenario i ran into..

If i have The Rack and Oona's Blackguard and Triton Shorestalker with a +1/+1 counter on him and Mistblade Shinobi with Aqueous Form attached and cast Distortion Strike Targeting my Ninja of the Deep Hours...

Then swing/attack with everything with no response/declared blockers from the opponent and my opponent has no cards in hand at this time ...

What determines the order of all the effects that take place?

also, if my opponent has no cards in hand when I attack... but Mistblade Shinobi returns a creature to their hand... will Triton Shorestalker with a +1/+1 counter on him cause the opponent to discard that creature resulting in the opponents upkeep for The Rack to deal 3 damage? or when all the damage is done then creature then goes into the opponents hand and and no discard occurs resulting in The Rack doing 2 damage?

Thanks in advance!

Icbrgr on Kamigawa Flip Card Question

1 month ago

I am looking for some guidance/confirmation on the rulings of auras/counters on a FLIP card from the Kamigawa Block Nezumi Shortfang. I am currently using him alongside Oona's Blackguard and want to know/confirm that if he gets the +1/+1 counter for being a Rogue will he keep that +1/+1 counter and or any other auras/equipment attached to him i.e. Aqueous Form/Quietus Spike when he flips to become Stabwhisker the Odious?

This deck looks decent, but I feel you don't have enough discard with only 5 outlets. Any opponent that plays card draw will not be affected by The Rack and Shrieking Affliction unless you add more discard. I would cut a few of the more expensive ninjas to go up to 4Oona's Blackguards as well as add 4 Inquisition of Kozilek which has gotten a lot cheaper due to its conspiracy two printing. I would also cut down to 5-6 rack affects if not less. Great deck bye the way!
