Scourge of the Throne is, unfortunately, banned in all formats

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa

3 days ago

Ok, there are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (Cards like: Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards). The problem is, these cards hardly do anything other than putting counters on themselves. Their pretty much duds. So to make up for this, people will put in good sac outlets, (Cards like: Mind Slash, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Attrition, etc.) This type of deck gets its engine running STRICTLY from it's sac outlets, (NOT FROM ITS CREATURES) and because of this, it is a bit more reliant on its commander.

The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck is not RELYING on its sac outlets, (although it does have a few) but rather on the ETB/graveyard triggers of creatures (Cards like: Mulldrifter and Harvester of Souls). With this type of deck, you're also not fully relying on your commander. Marchesa is just a perk. If you don't have her out, you can still play your creatures and benefit from them.

Also keep in mind, that it isn't too hard getting +1/+1 counters on your creatures just using the dethrone ability itself. I find that most, if not all the time, you will NOT be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.

This is the Marchesa deck that I personally made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

Some cards that I would highly recommend putting in the deck are:
- Sneak Attack
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Demonic Tutor
- Necropotence
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Diabolic Intent
- Mind Slash
- Thalakos Deceiver
- Phyrexian Tower
- Scourge of the Throne
NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are good cards to help abuse the ETB triggers.

SkipYourDrawStep on Fantastic Beasts and How to Get Stomped By Them

D1beast: I pretty much just went to my binders for your request for a budget version. I haven't looked for much card interaction, mostly just trying to help this deck capitalize on Mayael's ability to cheat cards while keeping the price tag low.

Unfoil Blazing Archon.
Sideboard Omnath, Locus of Rage, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Dragonlord Atarka, Dromoka, the Eternal and Dragonlord Dromoka - put these in as you please.
Remove Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Scourge of the Throne, Vigor, Sword of Feast and Famine, Thran Dynamo, Rings of Brighthearth, Defense of the Heart, and all non-basic lands except for Command Tower and Reflecting Pool.
Adjust basic lands to 15 Forest, 11 Mountain, 10 Plains.
Add Aegis Angel, Bane of Bala Ged, Elderscale Wurm, Essence of the Wild, Krond the Dawn-Clad, Scaled Behemoth, Stoneshock Giant, Tyrant of Discord, Green Sun's Zenith, Primeval Bounty.
Total Cost of Mainboard as of 5/15 (TCG): ~$169. Sideboard adjustments above total ~$16-$17.

Again, this probably isn't optimal and needs tweaking to make all the removals and additions work together, but these are some ideas to take the deck if you wanted a unified theme.

TheDarkSlayer21 on marchesa budget +1+1 counter deck

P.S. I would take out Endless One. If it dies and comes back, it will be a 0/0. So it's useless for this type of deck. Also, if you're searching for other Board Wipes that are as good as Damnation, I would recommend Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, or Decree of Pain.

TheDarkSlayer21 on The Truth of Politics

First off, putting Marchesa in the graveyard is NOT risky. If someone tries to get rid of Marchesa from your graveyard, you can redirect it back to the command zone.

Rule 903.9
If a commander would be exiled from ANYWHERE or put into its owner's hand, graveyard, or library from anywhere, its owner may put it into the command zone instead.

With that said, there are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (like Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards).

I find that most, if not all the time, you will not be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.

Also since your basing this on stealing as many creatures as possible I would recommend putting in Blatant Thievery, Bribery, Sepulchral Primordial, and Thalakos Deceiver

Hey mate,

adding these cards. Some nice stuff for Boros. I think we are pretty set on this archetype. Now we just need to settle on Azorius and Simic and then we can start making cuts :)
