Scourge of the Throne Discussion

Steaditup Thanks for the suggestions. Scourge of the Throne is a bit out of the budget unfortunately. Conquering Manticore could be interesting if I could repeatedly use his effect but the 6 cmc kinda hurts. Dominus of Fealty sounds nice once because once it's on the board, I don't have to worry about having a way to recur the card.

Scourge of the Throne seems good. Also, Marchesa's trigger specifically returns the creature to your control so effects that borrow or steal creatures are really strong. Dominus of Fealty springs to mind, as does Conquering Manticore.

chadsansing thanks for your comment! I did consider Scourge of the Throne, which unfortunately doesn't work as well as Aurelia, the Warleader since Aurelia has vigilance so the entire army can attack whereas Scourge can only attack one at a time, and stops working once the opponents' life totals are lower than yours.

Sweet idea!

Scourge of the Throne might be another good reveal off of Deceiver.

Happy playing!

Some other cards that might be fun to test if you want to cheat in big creatures:

Xenagos, God of Revels, Hellkite Charger, Scourge of the Throne, Savage Ventmaw, and Pathbreaker Ibex might also add some value. A Fight to the Death played while opponents are attacking each other might be cool.

Have fun!

Maybe a Disenchant to help against the combat funnels? Banishing Light, Oblivion Ring, Nahiri, the Harbinger, and Cast Out might also be worth testing as artifact and enchantment removal.

Scourge of the Throne might be fun in this list.

You could also play Comeuppance, Fight to the Death (especially against opponents attacking other opponents), and Settle the Wreckage as conditional, combat-trick-esque wipes.

Happy playing!
