I would suggest picking up a Talisman of Creativity, and an arcane signet and maybe run a few more mana rocks, as in my experience with Brudiclad, getting mana rocks is critical or you fall behind because he's 6 cmc. you may want to also add some duals like Sulfur Falls or Steam Vents to fix your mana outside of rocks. Molten Birth is a surprisingly good card in this deck. at worst you make a couple tokens, at best you can cast it again. Might I also suggest Tamiyo's Journal? from my experience, this card is an absolute power house. I've found that Saheeli, Sublime Artificer works wonders in a deck like this. Idol of Oblivion is also amazing in this deck as it gives you card draw and allows you to close out a game quickly. You also talked about using your opponents creatures to copy, so i would suggest Faerie Artisans to save you a couple copy cards. Finally, you're on the right track with making massive amounts of tokens, but you're leaving them too weak for boardwipes and to close out a game, my suggestion would be to add Wurmcoil Engine and Reef Worm wurmcoil engine allows you to close out game quick with tokens of 6/6s with deathtouch and lifelink and when a boardwipe occurs, double your tokens. Reef worm protects your tokens from 3 boardwipes and dies on the 4th boardwipe. They get large very quickly and close out games and are great chump blockers in their 0/1 stages.

Octopus Broodmother

Creature - Octopus

Whenever a creature an opponent controls becomes tapped, you may pay , if you do, create a 0/2 blue Egg creature token with defender and "When this creature dies, create a 3/3 blue Octopus Spawn token with "When this creature dies, create a copy of Octopus Broodmother.".".


I'd like a Leviathan or Serpent designed to see standard play.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I had previously bought all the creatures you'd mentioned when assembling this deck on MTGO.

I like the Serpent of Yawning Depths the most and will probably replace the Gearseeker Serpent with it.

The Simic Sky Swallower just feels weirdly vanilla to me. It's obviously not with three separate abilities but given the sweep or unblockable nature provided by the others, Shroud and Flample just don't excite me the same way.

As for the Kederekt Leviathan I considered and dismissed it because, for that mana, I'd much prefer a one sided board sweep. Sure, we'd have a 5/5 when all was said and done but things like Teferi's Protection would mess us up badly on that play. I just don't like the risk it exposes us to.

The Kiora planeswalker is valid. Kiora Bests the Sea God would be magical One on One but somewhat less so in Multiplayer and the Reef Worm just feels like too many hoops to get to my Kraken. I'm very impatient and lazy. I want my big stuff NOW.

I really appreciate the input though! I'll have to test with the Serpent of Yawning Depths soon.

Crush of Tentacles is a great form of flavorful removal. Cryptic Serpent and Deep-Sea Kraken are a couple other fatties you can cheat in for less mana. Also kinda surprised you don't have Halimar Depths in your build. Stormsurge Kraken can be fun, but I am biased in this as lieutenant cards are kinda pet cards for me. Reef Worm is fun, and just gets bigger and bigger. Tatyova, Benthic Druid could also get you some more card draw. Hope this helps, I know I love my sea monster deck, though I went mono blue.

Cmi1103 on Got 99 Upvotes And A Bitch Ain't One - Marchesa

Great deck! I started playing EDH with the Arcane Wizardry deck and was really impressed with what are now two of my favorite cards, Marchesa and Vindictive Lich. My next goal was to create a deck using Marchesa to abuse his ability and it's one of my favorites! Here's my list if you're interested: It’s a great day to die, again and again. Gotta say that I really enjoy Living Death in there, especially with Archaeomancer allowing you to retrieve it from your graveyard time and time again. This really throws off opponents' plans and with Grave Betrayal keeps creatures out of their graveyards and onto your battlefield. I'm also quite fond of Reef Worm and Chasm Skulker because they can create a lot of tokens. Great deck! +1 from me!

Why isn't Reef Worm in this? I use the reef worm with greater good to instantly get a 9/9 Kraken with a sac outlet. Then, if you're able to, cast it again from the graveyard.

I run it in my muldrotha deck. I've resolved a reef wurm with Doubling Season and Parallel Lives in play. I ended up sac'ing everything into Altar of Dementia and with Altar of the Brood on the battlefield to mill out my opponents. 1 worm creates 4 3/3 fish, which creates 16 6/6 whales, which created 64 9/9 Krakens. Then I cast the worm again from the graveyard with muldrotha and created another 64 Krakens.
