Creature — Faerie Rogue
Each other Rogue creature you control enters the battlefield with an additional +1/+1 counter on it.
Whenever a creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it deals combat damage to a player, that player discards a card.

Oona's Blackguard Discussion
4 days ago
Consider expanding on the +1/+1 counter theme that Kresh is using? Cards that give your creatures bonuses for having counters:
- Bramblewood Paragon
- Tuskguard Captain
- Rishkar, Peema Renegade
- Winding Constrictor
- Kalonian Hydra
- Battlefront Krushok
- Oona's Blackguard
Giving Kresh trample seems very good because otherwise he can just be chump blocked constantly. Giving him trample with spells is really a one shot deal where as using some creatures that can give him trample can last longer.
As far as the sacfrice theme with Kresh you can also expand on it using more creatures that give you value before they die and they die without needing to use other cards:
These creatures are removal spells who also die by themselves.
Creatures with evoke seems good with the Kresh because you get value from them using their low evoke cost and then they die by themselves. Creatures who are evoked do enter the battlefield and then they die. They work with abilities that want creatures to die such as Kresh. Brairhorn for example is a nice aggro evoke creature that Kresh can really benefit from.
Creatures with exploit such as Sidisi lets you sac a creature even itself and get value.
Good luck with your deck.

I gotta chime in because im one of those Cult Kamigawa lovers :p However; I agree with just about everything in this article. Ninjutsu was/is cool but the double whammy of limited card selection and color choices made deck building around it pretty difficult. Im a casual/modern player and found that things like Ornithopter/Memnite seem liked good enablers but ultimately just didnt pack enough punch or value... but a tribe that also exists in the Dimir colors was Faeries and ETB effects like Spellstutter Sprite and damage effects from Oona's Blackguard...and the relatively new Faerie Miscreant it made it plausible to come up with a decent 60 card deck... in terms of EDH....impossible i think.... has anyone made a LEGIT Higure, the Still Wind EDH deck? (...and won...against people who have played Magic before...)

no Oona's Blackguard? seems like it could be pretty good.

next on to suggestions, while its not a rogue per say, Corrosive Mentor could add an extra punch to your non-evasive deck, making opponents wary of blocking with larger creatures.
Deathcult Rogue, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Inkfathom Infiltrator, Marsh Flitter(comboes especially well with oona's black guard) and Zulaport Cutthroat all have their uses and can be powerful in the right variant of mono-black rogues. (although i think you get the most power from u/b artifact rogues)
Merrow Bonegnawer seems like especially good sb tech against dredge/delirium/graveyard type decks.

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.
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.
Thats what I think for now

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.

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.

My suggestions for now would be:
- Oona's Blackguard : This is fun and themed for this commander
- Glen Elendra Liege : That is nice for your tokens
- Dire Undercurrents : Serious advantage when your commander is out!
- Scion of Oona : A must have for this commander
- Rhystic Study : Great card draw engine in multiplayer
- Brainstorm : You gotta love blue for such pieces
- Metallic Mimic : A new card that fits your plans perfectly
Hope this helps you movin' forward.
