Seventy7INa45 on Affinity for EDH - Marchesa the Black Rose

1 month ago

Last_Laugh - Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate you taking the time to offer suggestions.

Spark Double and Diabolic Intent are solid suggestions, I will find room to include those, thank you!

Metallic Mimic was something I thought about including, because at face value it seems like it would interact well with Marchesa. Problem is, the most common creature type I have is construct, and that’s less than 1/3 of my overall creature count. I could see it being very good situationally (i.e. I have a few constructs in my hand, or a way to get them) but I saw it sitting on the board not doing much otherwise.

Ashnod's Altar is good overall; I use it in a lot of my other decks. I went with Ironworks since most of my creatures are artifacts anyway. Probably worth including both to be more consistent, also might be worth looking at Phyrexian Altar as well.

Sage of Fables seems good for instant Marchesa protection. I currently just have Guildmages' Forum and Forge of Heroes as instant +1/+1 counters for Marchesa, so I'll take a look at finding room for another if I find I consistently need it.

Flayer, Sage, and Altar seems like a cute combo to use to end the game, and powerful, but also doesn’t fit with the artifact based Marchesa deck I was going for. Stacking modular counters is a sub goal of the deck, and I can’t put counters on Flayer or Sage without something like Phyrexian Scriptures or Mycosynth Lattice . Same with Vindictive Lich

SynergyBuild on Mono black aggro DONE OUR WAY

Devotion requires a separate build, and would prolly need a commander that supports it like Erebos.

Otherwise I think I can build up a few pieces.

The main goal is to ramp, then drop a lock on the field with a wincon in SKittles. The issue is while Skittles is fast, it really needs a +1/+1 counter or a sword on it to get a whole turn faster at killing anyone.

I think Phyrexian Scriptures is perhaps worth it, since it lets us get that counter, is mass removal that saves our commander, AND it is mass exile, all for the price of Damnation , but I just dislike Damnation since it doesn't allow regeneration for our commander.

I am testing a bunch of cards like this.

Tanhathan on Muldrotha, Digging my own Grave

8 months ago

Hey! Thanks for the sugestions.

First, I realize that I'm a dumbass: I balanced the cards type so I would have more opportunities to recure...BUT! I hadn't fully read Muldrotha's ability: I can only play permanents from the graveyard. So I'm thinking about completly going overboard with permanants and keep only a few instants or sorceries (at the risk of not interacting much with what's being cast at instant speed).

Seeing how my mana curve is distributed, I'm not sure I need the Temple of the False God , so I migh go back to 36 lands.

Lazav is indeed a great way to keep yourself afloat if Muldrotha is undisposed. Great idee, thanks. Acidic Slime has a great ETB effect but I'll rather use something like Caustic Caterpillar if I can get one since it can sacrefice itself.

Also, you are very right about the lack of wraths. I intend to add a few recuring permanent that can wrath. I'm thinking Nevinyrral's Disk and Phyrexian Scriptures .

Also yes, Grave titan is awesome. But it's a bit expensive, I'll see if I'll add it directly or later if I want to pump up the dec.

Thanks for everything.

Struyk on Shiny Cookie Robots [ToE Artifacts]

Almost the same as my deck but I use:

Karn's Bastion -> Evolving Wilds
Evolving mills your deck and helps cast the enchantments

Ugin, the Ineffable -> Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge
Tezzeret is just way better

Meteor Golem -> Karn, Scion of Urza
Meteor Golem is too expensive mana wise

Iron Bully -> Silent Submersible
Don't know why you would use Iron Bully, he's so useless

Added a 2nd Traxos, Scourge of Kroog
I use Karn as well so more hystorics, he's just op

Added 3x Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp
5/6 flying for 4 cost, what's not to like?

Dropped Kaya's Ghostform
In my experience each time I try to cast this my creature / planeswalker dies before it applies or it just never dies...

Experimenting with Spark Double and Yawgmoth's Vile Offering and trying to main deck 4x Thought Erasure


Ugin, the Ineffable -> Phyrexian Scriptures
Helps a lot vs rush decks and creature spam decks

Experimenting with Chaos Wand
Extreme card advantage vs slow decks / control decks

syncronym on Muldrotha, She Speaks for the Trees

9 months ago

I see this same thing happening in alot of molly D decks. You use alot of instants and sorcery when you can use a permanent that does nearly the same thing. Boardwipes you should be running Bane of Progress Pernicious Deed Plague Boiler Tranquil Grove Phyrexian Scriptures Oblivion Stone

Mana ramp Wayfarer's Bauble Burnished Hart Command Tower Font of Fertility Deranged Assistant

Target removal Vampire Hexmage Seal of Removal Imprisoned in the Moon / Song of the Dryads

Draw/self mill Mesmeric Orb Chronic Flooding Jace, Memory Adept

Protection Darksteel Plate both boots Voidmage Prodigy Siren Stormtamer - this will protect from Bojuka Bog and alot of other gy exiles while also stopping target removal on muldrotha.

Good adds to think about Dismiss Into Dreams Animate Dead

And the only non permanent spell you should run in muldrotha Primal Surge combo with Laboratory Maniac for those games that just drag on.

These adds (especially the mana ramp) will make the deck run smoother and more consistent.
