River Kelpie is definitely a sick card for Marchesa, my friend used to run her so I know how great of a commander she can be! +1 from me!

Also one creature i HIGHLY recommend for your deck as its a one card draw engine champ in this deck is River Kelpie . Seriously, the work that one card would do in this deck is nuts

Okay, since you wrote it should be a 'lands matter' deck Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar might be interesting to you. Also consider Splendid Reclamation. I would definitely switch out Slithermuse for River Kelpie, it's just amazing card draw.

Other things I would consider taking out are Hornet Queen (for its cost) and Whip of Erebos as it sends the creatures to exile and makes them useless for Muldrotha, the Gravetide.

Thank you for the feed back and suggestions !

My Card draw:

Solemn Simulacrum, Sage of Fables, River Kelpie, Midnight Reaper, Disciple of Bolas, Baleful Strix, Skullclamp, Sensei's Divining Top,Rhystic Study, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Phyrexian Arena, Moonlight Bargain. A total of 12 draw.

Also let’s not forget my tutors which I include has better card draw ( because you can obtain whatever you need ): Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Razaketh, the Foulblooded,Liliana Vess,Diabolic Intent,Vampiric Tutor,Mystical Tutor,Lim-Dul's Vault,Fabricate. 8 tutors ,let’s also not forget my cheat in play combos; Buried Alive+Victimize,Entomb+Reanimate. In total I have 23 cards in the deck which would allow me to have some kind of card advantage but is it enough?

My Sac outlets:

Phyrexian Tower,Grimgrin, Corpse-Born,Phyrexian Altar,Ashnod's Altar,Altar of Dementia,Goblin Bombardment, and one creature sacrifice with effects:Sidisi, Undead Vizier,Profaner of the Dead.

My Board Wipe:

My wipe game is ... down too three cards.. Cyclonic RiftToxic DelugeProfaner of the Dead. Your suggestion of Last One Standing is a perfect addition!

My Life gain:

Since my commander is Marchesa, the Black Rose my goal is always to be at the lowest but I do have two options of ganning life: Disciple of Bolas,Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip (Flipped). But Gray Merchant of Asphodel could be very powerful, any suggestions for a cut for him ?

The suggestions:

Grim Haruspex not as as abuse able as Midnight Reaper ( allows me to stay under the highest life total/ Midnight Reaper effects itself.

Corpse Augur relying on opponents graveyard to have creatures doesn’t seem very attractive to me.

Oona's Blackguard,Sadistic Hypnotist I have one creature that does both and more ! Vindictive Lich which I can abuse and effect all my opponents.

Dimir House Guard ( a tutor creature) , but I have plenty of tutors xD.

Here’s a few card ideas to bounce around your head:

Some of them are totally worth it. Siren Stormtamer protects you from grave removal. I’ve been playing Muldrotha for some time now and got a decent list online here. Tested Secrets of the Dead and it can’t hold up with River Kelpie. Stinkweed Imp is just useful for the dredge and only good with a sac outlet. Life from the Loam does the same plus puts itself back to grave while giving you lands and without any needed second card. Ramunap Excavator has proven pretty useless too. You better go for some protection like Diplomatic Immunity instead to protect your commander and you got the same effect.

LOL, yeah, I ask a lot, all at once. But damn really? That's interesting..same name, lots of similar cards...But ok.

Yeah, makes sense. Metallic Mimic does some work..indeed.

I like River Kelpie because he draws when other people do graveyard stuff. True, but in a heavy creature meta Clique is pretty good. Not Amazing!, but pretty good.

Yeahhhh, I would definitely give Vigean Graftmage another try. When he comes out people always anticipate what's gonna happen and then you see the "oh, ohhh, Ohhhhhhhh" face after they read it lol

Completely agree! Razaketh is great, it's one of the non-free sac outlets that I actually loved in this deck because the 2 life can matter...but yeah, 8 AND triple Black can be difficult. Or, you're just playing that and doing nothing else that turn which feels bad.

Thanks man, I appreciate that :)

I just checked out the list you posted and I like the changes you've made: Phantasmal Image - not a change, but clones are awesome and I might add him. Imperial Recruiter - tutors are always great. Chasm Skulker - I had it in my first build, cut it, and now I realize just having blockers in this deck is awesome because your life gets dangerously low sometimes. Chaos Warp - great in general Last One Standing - seems really good, cheaper boardwipe. Ever backfire though? Midnight Reaper - def have to try this out, I just put in Harvester of Souls after having it for a while and this seems like a cheaper version. Shifting Shadow - seems like a powerhouse if no one catches on and removes it lol I've wanted to add this for quite a while. Glen Elendra Archmage - awesome with Mikaeus lol I'm sure you know. Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip - I'm not a huge fan of that 7 mana cost to flip honestly, but, the effects do seem somewhat worth it. Sakashima the Impostor - I would have thought this is really good in Marchesa..no? Anger - I can understand that. I sometimes forget you need a mountain. Zealous Conscripts - I actually also took this out from my starting build. It didn't do much for me when people play small creatures and often just drew hate since people thought I ran the Kiki combo... Scourge of the Throne - I actually really like this card, but haven't played it much to have an opinion on it, but when I have, it hasn't done the amount of work I expected it too sadly. Consecrated Sphinx - seems great. I may test this out, I need more draw in my list. No Rune-Scarred Demon? - have you ever tested him out? I like the way it plays most times.

LANDS: I need a Hall of the Bandit Lord though, seems good.

Have you considered Forge of Heroes and Tarnished Citadel? Forge seems pretty good and I'm debating citadel, cuz 3 damage per colored mana seems like it might be pushing it.

Good on you for putting every fetch land though! I haven't invested That much money into my Marchesa landbase, but I should. Personally, personally, I don't think the OG duals are worth their cost in any deck lol - maybe when they were cheaper and I got a scrubland for my Teysa deck at $60, but now each being minimum $100?.. meh.. But I know everyone has different opinions on them.

Overall though, I really like the look of your list - it seems solid!

I have yet to read all these comments, but that list I linked to looks like it was definitely your old list lol

Your deck has changed a LOT! damn...though, that is 3 years old, so, that's expected.

No more Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Viscera Seer, River Kelpie or Puppeteer Clique?? why?
