Order of Succession Discussion

When building a commander establish the goal of the deck and what type of play group the deck will fit into. You don't want to bring a tank to a pillow fight. If you're looking to make her competitive it's not terribly hard. Her ability is busted and scales really well if your opponents are also playing a bunch of degenerate stuff.

Highly competitive I'd recommend playing a storm version of her with Aetherflux Reservoir and ad nauseum; though I will not this leads to very linear games and your friends will groan every time you slap this type of deck on the table.

Medium - something along the lines of Aggravated Assault and Sword of Feast and Famine . Granted infinite combat steps will probably win the game this requires a higher mana commitment and is much easier to deal with than storm

Casual - chaos spells. Personally, I hate this archetype because it takes away skill based decisions and turns everything into RNG. Whims of the Fates , Kaboom! , and Order of Succession are examples of this.

  1. Cavern of Souls, Tectonic Edge,Wasteland and Treachery are all cards that I was planning on including. I've just updated the list but like I said, It's still a ongoing process.

  2. Dust Bowl: This card doesn't fit the game plan that this deck tries to execute. Our plan is to try and resolve a polymorph effect as soon as possible with some form of protection. Dust Bowl suits the more slow control decks where you want to grind their lands away bit by bit while maintaining board and card advantage. Just like Rishadan Port this also requires a good amount of resources. Resources that we would rather use for our main game plan.

  3. Lonely Sandbar: An island is better if we want a land drop and we run enough 1-drop cantrips and draw that give us more value then this.

  4. Riptide Laboratory: I think this card belongs more in the tempo/more creature version of this deck. The only value that this gives up is with clique and we want to actively kill clique. It does have it's uses as protection but I think other cards deserve it's spot in the deck.

  5. Jace, the Mind Sculptor: I may include him in a future version but atm he's benched. He is by far the best planeswalker to include in this deck but I think he may not be able to give us enough value for our plan.

  6. Order of Succession: This a prime sideboard card. If your local scene has a lot of voltron or hexproof commander decks then this card will be the bane of their existence.

Hmm Chaos Wand for repeadatly stealing, Order of Succession for when your loosing.

If you wanna be really evil Worst Fears Aura Thief or ,even though its not that stealy, Curse of the Cabal note how that one says permanents not non land permanents and make em do all the politics.

I like this Marchesa too though the Queen will always rule my heart. For this deck I recommend Cruel Entertainment, Bite of the Black Rose, and Order of Succession due to usefulness and flavour. I think you might also enjoy Plea for Power. I do not know what your budget is but I think you might want to invest in Scourge of the Throne. Skyline Despot could be a good prophetic card: it makes you monarch. Rewind and Unwind are worthy counter spells to consider.

I hope these suggestions have helped!

I've looked at trimming white and/or black multiple times over the year and a half I've spent using and tweaking this deck, but I can't find a way to retain the frankly insane ramp this specific manabase offers. Lack of mana actually isn't an issue I have to deal with often, which is why I've taken to following the IT maxim of "If it works when all the rules you know say it shouldn't, don't touch it" and am rather unwilling to mess with the manabase.

Psychic Battle has been on my 'include this' list for a while and will be slotted in as soon as I actually remember it exists when trading.

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder is both a creature, which I've themed the deck not to have, and something which, when played, allows the opponents to mentally assign the deck as being a very odd storm deck. It doesn't matter that the assumption is wrong; it allows the more serious players I often face online to form a plan against the deck.

Perplexing Chimera isn't included because it is both a creature and, given what my relevant large spells are, usually more effective against me than the opponents I'm facing.

Endless Whispers was actually in the deck, however it was cut because I play this deck primarily online, which means I have no clue what I'm facing and the decks tend to be more serious/less creature heavy. Order of Succession is perfect for the one thing I actually want it for: messing up the many, many decks who rely almost entirely on their command in the early/mid phases of the match. If I were playing this physically, I'd definitely swap them back.

Witch Hunt is a placeholder for Psychic Battle, though I might try putting Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder into that slot just to see if it's worth dropping the no creatures theme to include it.
