Sneak Attack Discussion

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa

1 day ago

I see that this deck isn't finished yet, so I will just give you some general advise.

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 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 it's commander.

The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck IS NOT relying on its sac outlets, but rather on the ETB triggers of creatures. With this type of deck, you're 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.

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:
- Necropotence
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Demonic Tutor
- River Kelpie
- Diabolic Intent
- Harvester of Souls
- Grim Haruspex
- Grimgrin, Corpse-Born
- Mind Slash
- Flayer of the Hatebound
- Glen Elendra Archmage
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Grave Betrayal
- Sneak Attack
- Thraximundar
- Scourge of the Throne
- Thalakos Deceiver
- Phyrexian Tower
NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are also good cards to put in.

Thoughts on using a Birthing Pod strategy? Another easy way to trigger the Hulk. Could also use Sneak Attack, Greater Good, Natural Order, Eldritch Evolution?

Thanks for the feedback. I had most of those cards in for a while, along with the gain control stuff in the sideboard. You're right Sneak Attack was great with them. I've since lowered the curve quite a bit, and went with a bunch of modular creatures since they come in with +1 counters, and I can then move them to other artifact creatures when they die. A couple of cards that could be removed would be Erebos, God of the Dead and Fulminator Mage. They are there specifically because of my LGS meta. River Kelpie and a land probably are my first additions.

Thanks again for the feedback

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.

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.

If he doesn't end up having the remaining; I've got 9x (2 in Japanese) as well a Liliana, the Last Hope and I was looking at your Sneak Attack, Show and Tell, Eye of Ugin and Expedition Mapfoil icon.
