Have you ever considered Sneak Attack or Shifting Shadow as an alternative way to get stuff from hand to grave?

@bankrupt_on_selling Sneak Attack is a card I have always been interested in, and have tested many times. Unfortunately, I find it hard to justify a slot in the deck. It can generate some big plays, but it's not a part of our core strategy, so sometimes it just doesn't have the opportunity to do much. Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded, on the other hand does advance our core strategy. He's a power 5+ creature for Mayael to find, and he gives all our other creatures haste which is probably the most important keyword for this deck. The Sneak Attack ability on him is just gravy. He's so new I haven't had the opportunity to test him much yet, but so far he seems like a very promising inclusion.

I almost forgot one thing you could use to cheat out the Eldrazi, even though I'm rather positive it won't interest you.

There are cards that can instantly put creatures from your hand into play. I'll just list them instead of going one by one as they're almost the same thing, the only difference between each are their mana costs, colors and/or if they make you sacrifice the creature at the end of the turn.

For me the strongest card in the set is easily Heliod, Sun-Crowned . He is cheap, easily tutor-able, hard to remove, and enables relevant combos in multiple formats. After that I think it's a toss up between Drag to the Underworld , Klothys, God of Destiny , and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath . I think each of those cards are strong enough to see play in multiple formats. I also suspect Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis will see heavy play in standard

The cards that I am most excited about are Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger and Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded . Purphoros mainly because the idea of Sneak Attack in the command zone seems fun and Kroxa just because I love Rakdos and he seems really unique.

As an aside, Escape is looking to be a very strong mechanic from the limited play I've seen so far.

TypicalTimmy What format are we talking about? You mention Sneak Attack and Sol Ring so im guessing EDH. To sneak attack it in EDH you need to spend 5 mana and 2 cards. 5 mana and 2 cards to tripple your mana is not ban worthy when there is 5 mana 2 cards to get you infinite mana in the format.

Then when you consider you can just cheat the stupid thing out, such as with Sneak Attack , you suddenly have game-winning mana far beyond when you normally should.

Again. I literally see no reason why this thing should have ever been contemplated, let alone printed.

Last_Laugh on Marchesa - No Rest For The Wicked

Nice start. I do have a few suggestions to help you lower your avg. cmc though and I'll try to break it down by category and suggest a cut.

Draw: Midnight Reaper , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , and Skullclamp for Butcher of Malakir (Grave Pact if your mana can handle it but Butcher is overcosted and susceptible to more removal), Bedevil (versatile but single use and not abuseable here), and Necropolis Regent (Really good at what it does but there's better finishers for Marchesa).

Control: Glen Elendra Archmage (combos with Mikaeus and Goblin Bombardment also) for Mystic Confluence (Glen Elendra gets multiple uses, Confluence only 1).

Boardwipes: Last One Standing and Jokulhaups for Decree of Pain (You won't need extra cards with Jokulhaups and it's cheaper to cast) and Polymorphists Gest (Last One Standing is the same cost but effects all opponents rather than 1).

Win Cons: Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Kokusho, the Evening Star (both very abuseable with Metallic Mimic to ignore the Throne and win outside of combat).

Discard: Sadistic Hypnotist and Oona's Blackguard (discard helps seal up games tighter than a dolphin's butthole) for Vilis (Marchesa does better with cheap aggro) and Underworld Connections (You'll have better results out of resource denial than a single use per turn draw).

Expensive Suggestions: Sneak Attack , Diabolic Intent , Imperial Recruiter , Grave Pact , Necropotence , and Spellskite
