@pizzagod13: Sou kaa...

Which is odd, since I was planning to use Zedruu the Greathearted at the helm; likely for Team USA reasons. :P But seriously, after seeing so many Queen Marchesa Aikido decks, I was asking myself if I could even incorporate such elements to Zedruu as well. But if Phelddagrif can do something like that better, I might as well do something of that kind better.

Question now: What Country's current official flag only has Bant Colors? XP

@Natalbee First of all, thanks a lot for your great tips! ;)

Regarding your suggestions:

1) You are right about Metalwork Colossus , I had picked him just to block some large tramples and for the recursion (sacrificing thopters), but I like the Forgemaster better. 2) Notion thief is really nice because it prevents the enemies from drawing (one of my friends in the playgroup plays Queen Marchesa ), but given the the amount of removal it will face I will follow your recommendation with mind's eye :) 3) OMG the Time Sieve combo is so amazing! Never thought about it but I'm definitely going to implement it! If my opponents happen to run out of counterspells and/or targeted artifact removal it can be a win combo for sure. 4) How does Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas fare in a real game? I really really like him but I feared that his ultimate being only -4 would scare my opponents and draw a ton of hatred towards him (and me).

Thanks again!

Thanks precociousapprentice for the time and effort you have put into the deck and the respectful and thoughtful interactions in the comments. Keep up the good work.

I think my previous comment was missed in the midst of rules debating so I'll copy it here:

I'm wondering if you have ever considered Etali, Primal Storm ? Seems like it fits right into the theme of the deck. It has to stick and then swing which can sometimes be a big ask, but I'm considering it for my Queen Marchesa deck as it has such a high ceiling.

Also have you thought about including Necromancy in addition to or replacing Animate Dead ? I've found the additional flexibility (And potential sick plays) well worth the additional cost and have considered running both.

Kiyomei graced me with his input on my Queen Marchesa deck as well some time ago. I'm glad I'm not the only one he provides such valuable feedback for!

It bugs me that Queen Marchesa and Monarchy effects aren't included here, because although they suit more political/control decks, they still provide really efficient card draw with a fairly avoidable drawback considering the decks playing them are suited to holding down the Monarchy.

Hey there everyone :) I wanted to share my Queen Marchesa -list with you and ask for some suggestions for improvement. At the moment all it does is cause chaos on the board but i feel like there is a winning condition missing but I don't really know what to put into the deck. Here is the list:
