Hey bud, got a few things that may interest ya:

- Deadeye Plunderers - Gets bigger for every treasure/artifact you own and makes them. Big time synergy.

- Protean Raider - Cheap pirate mimic. Thematic win combined with flexibility.

- Spell Swindle - Treasure generation X Counterspell.

- Storm the Vault  Flip - A must include if you want Treasure synergy. This bad boy will fix you with treasure, then give you an op land.

- Unspeakable Symbol - Instant speed counter distribution that costs no mana. Need to kill a bitch? Pay all your life into an unblocked scurvy boi. Need to save someone with Marchesa/save Marchesa? This has your back; highly recommended.

- Forge of Heroes - You know Marchesa brings herself back to life with her own ability too? You do now. This land ensures she's protected straight away.

Looking at your mass mutiny, I see you want to steal peoples things en masse. Here's some other suggestions for good cards of that ilk (Because frankly, they're pretty much alternate win cons/Marchesa steal opportunities)
- Mob Rule - Insurrection - Harness by Force - Press into Service - Reins of Power

Looks like a great start! Definitely seems powerful for a first EDH. You might like these: Blade of the Bloodchief , Iron Bully , Thalakos Deceiver , Mark of Mutiny , Press into Service , Unity of Purpose , Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Smothering Abomination , Aetherworks Marvel , Decree of Pain

I built a Marchesa deck around modular creatures if you want to check it out, maybe you'll see something you like.

Secondo me devi impostare il mazzo più verso il fare attaccare gli avversari tra loro e fargli perdere tempo per poi tirare fuori una finisher. Inoltre non hai nessun vantaggio dallo scartare, perché non hai cose come Liliana's Caress, wheels o carte con Madness, di conseguenza taglierei anche da quella parte. Quindi toglierei alcune delle carte tax che hai messo. Proporrei cose del genere:

  • Harsh Mentor -> Again, una tax abbastanza gratuita che però ti rende il tizio fastidioso #1. Non è ciò che vuoi, ti servono cose più subdole. Tipo Hunted Dragon.
  • Sire Of Insanity -> Spezza le tattiche a tutti, ma anche a te. Non lo ritengo utile, soprattutto perché non carte con madness, né carte sufficenti con flashback, emerge, ecc. Meglio un Combustible Gearhulk che ti fa pescare. In rosso. 6/6 first strike.
  • Dark Ritual -> Non è forte come Mana Geyser. Se non sei un mazzo combo, non te ne fai nulla di una carta così.
  • Hero's Downfall -> Ruinous Path e risparmi.
  • Rakdos Charm -> Nessuno dei sui effetti è così utile, se non forse esiliare il cimitero, but then again... Bojuka Bog?
  • Dreadbore -> Murder e risparmi.
  • Vandalblast -> Costa davvero tanto. Fai tu, ma non vedo tutta questa necessità di spaccare tutto. hai già molto removal per gli artefatti, potresti investire quei denari altrove.
  • War's Toll -> Heartless Hidetsugu è meglio non metterti un bersagio sulla testa grosso come war's toll. L'hidetsugu è più democratico.
  • Worn Powerstone -> Citadel of Pain perché la Powerstone fa schifo. Meglio una carta che gioca contro chi vuole fare il cheesy. Oppure Talisman of Indulgence.
  • Hissing Miasma -> Skyline Despot meglio avere più carte che ti rendono monarca che un side effect come questo enchantment. Se vogliono attaccarti, lo faranno comunque. L'unica ragione per cui invece Marchesa's Decree va bene è perché ti rende monarca.

Io tenterei di mettere tante carte che ti fanno rubare cose agli avversari, perché è un modo swag di rompere le balle. Ci sono così tante carte con questo effetto, che rischi di poter anche non mettere Insurrection, più che altro perché è difficile da trovare e costosa. Dico cose come:

Oltre a ciò, ti consiglio carte swag che sicuramente sono divertenti come:

Scusa se non ti ho commentato tutte le carte, ma sono un pelo di corsa. Ne possiamo piuttosto parlare quando ci vediamo.

Bite of the Black Rose, Tyrant's Choice and Cruel Entertainment would be fun additions to this deck. Act of Treason and Press into Service may also be of use to you. I hope these suggestions have helped.

Woiteck i had them both in the beggining! However i decided not to lean towards the "gain control" side of the deck too much. I have Press into Service instead of SoB cause of the +1/+1 counter (and i sac the creature afterwards) and Captivating Crew instead of Zealous Conscripts because i can dump my mana in its ability late game ;) But i'll consider them again. Cheers!

Press into Service is +1/+1 counter steal spell that I forgot!

Hmmm. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed,Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Feast on the Fallen seem like good options. Maybe Simic Fluxmage or Olivia, Mobilized for War, though I don't like the discard, but if you have Necropotence and the like that can be mitigated somewhat. It also occurred to me that Herald of Secret Streams and Flayer of the Hatebound might be good in here!

Rando sorcery suggestions. I'm not sure if mechanics work the way I assume, so some of these may be worse or better than I initially assumed. Press into Service, Chandra's Ignition, Seize the Day, Rekindled Flame, Panic Attack, Make Mischief, Heat Shimmer, Harness by Force, Wave of Indifference, Firestorm, Assault Strobe, Collective Defiance, Needle Drop, Aleatory.

Marchesa's 2nd ability also applies to her, so if she keeps dying make sure she has a +1/+1 counter on her and she will just bounce back! I use Armory of Iroas, Dragon Blood & Fabrication Module to consistently put at least 1 on her. Press into Service & Unity of Purpose work in a pinch and were the only (correct) coloured spells I could find. Diabolic Tutor is still cheap due to reprint and will allow you to search for whichever method takes your fancy. Drana, Liberator of Malakir also negates the need to attack the player with the highest life total in order to gain counters (as long as she can slip past, which she normally does). Hope this helps, feel free to take a look at my Marchesa deck (Marchesa's Treason) and critique it.
