Scourge of the Throne Discussion

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa, the Black Rose

4 days ago

Mind Slash is a good sac outlet.

Thalakos Deceiver is a phenomenal control card for a marchesa deck.

Sneak Attack is also a must have in any marchesa deck.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is amazing!

Necropotence, Harvester of Souls, and Consecrated Sphinx are good draw cards.

Thraximundar, Flayer of the Hatebound, Glen Elendra Archmage, Scourge of the Throne, River Kelpie, and Grave Betrayal, are also powerful cards to have in a marchesa deck.

If you need more suggestions, this is the marchesa deck that i made.

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa's Madness

5 days ago

I understand that you want to make this deck heavily vampire based, however you might want to consider adding in a few creatures that arn't vampires. Below are cards that i personally like to run.

Mind Slash is a good sac outlet.

Thalakos Deceiver is a phenomenal control card for a marchesa deck.

Sneak Attack is also a must have in any marchesa deck.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is amazing!

Disciple of Bolas, Necropotence, Harvester of Souls, and Consecrated Sphinx are good draw cards.

Thraximundar, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Flayer of the Hatebound, Glen Elendra Archmage, Scourge of the Throne, River Kelpie, Grave Betrayal, Harvester of Souls, and Dack's Duplicate are also powerful cards to have in a marchesa deck.

If you need more suggestions, this is the marchesa deck that i made.

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa's Engines

1 week ago

I see that you have a lot of ETB creatures, so I would recommend putting in Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication to abuse these effects.

You should definately consider putting in Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in you deck instead or your sideboard

Mind Slash is another good sac outlet that I would highly recommend.

Sneak Attack combos well with marchesa's ability.

I would also recammend putting Rune-Scarred Demon, Grave Betrayal, Scourge of the Throne, and Thraximundar in the deck.

This is the deck that i created for Marchesa, your welcome to look at it for suggestions

AverageDragon on That'll be one Zirilian dollars, please.

Also, I've found that due to the large amount of ramp, I don't especially need devoted card draw engines. The deck operates mostly off of the opening hand, and I took out most of the card draw that was in it due to the general lack of value I was getting from it.

The reason I have Hall of the Bandit Lord over Hanweir Battlements is that Hanweir Battlements effectively costs 2 mana to give haste to something (Tapping Hanweir and another mana source) while Hall of the Bandit Lord costs 0 mana to give something haste. The 3 life is either negligible or a benefit, as it can end up making Scourge of the Throne more effective.

In playtesting, I started with only around 12 pieces of ramp, and after around 10-15 games, I've found that "more ramp" is almost always what I want in my hand. Zirilan is a good commander (especially in mono-red) who can turn mana into value, and so over the various edits and tweaks, I've replaced more and more cards with ramp. In an ideal situation, I'll have 2 or 3 ramp pieces in an opening hand, a few lands, and some other utility cards. At this point, I believe I've found about the right balance between ramp and other cards. The goal of the ramp isn't necessarily to cast dragons (though that is another benefit), it's to get Zirilan onto the battlefield as soon as possible, which is turn 3 or 4.

Rimescale is also not included because I have no intention of cheating dragons out permanently. This deck is built around Zirilan, for Zirilan, and taking advantage of his ability to close games quickly. Rimescale is 7 mana, and doesn't give any real value unless he sticks around, which he almost never will.

Gorgosaurusrex on Kaalia has ADD (Angels, Demons, and Dragons)

scheerlc8520 Lands don't have color identities and fetch lands don't generate mana, so Polluted Delta is perfectly legal in my deck. I never cared for the Unhinged lands. Deflecting Palm is a decent suggestion but it's not great for my play group.

DoctorScarfI like Scourge of the Throne, thanks for the suggestion!

DoctorScarf on Kaalia's Vengeance

Scourge of the Throne is one of the best cards in my own Kaalia strategy, I would wholeheartedly suggest it to anyone playing her.

I love Scourge of the Throne for Kaalia, you can dump 2 things onto the battlefield per turn if you find yourself in a tricky situation. Not only that, Dethrone makes him more and more of a threat.
