- Does Spark Double get a counter if it doesn't copy?
- First Sliver and copies?
- What happens when you play card:Morbid Curiosity sacrificing a card:Spark Double?
- Are 'as this enters' and 'as you cast' abilities replacement effects, and how and when do multiple of these apply to a permanent entering the battlefield?
Creature — Illusion
You may have Spark Double enter the battlefield as a copy of a creature or planeswalker you control, except it enters with an additional +1/+1 counter on it if it's a creature, or an additional loyalty counter on it if it's a planeswalker, and it isn't legendary if that permanent is legendary.

Spark Double copying Marchesa for double Dethrone, the 2 Marchesas protect each other, and the copy enters with a counter immediately protecting itself.
Diabolic Intent is arguably better than Demonic Tutor here... run both.
Metallic Mimic fits your theme and you can either immediately protect Marchesa or abuse ETB/Death triggers every turn instead of once per round.
I'd also suggest Flayer of the Hatebound , Sage of Fables , and Ashnod's Altar for a great infinite damage/draw option (see paragraph below) and to give damage outside of combat. All these cards are good on their own in Marchesa. Sage immediately protects Marchesa (or abuse wizard etb/death like Vindictive Lich ), Altar is a free sac outlet that lets you dodge exile, tuck, etc. boardwipes, and Flayer with a free sac outlet is 36 damage (5+4 every turn) per round in a 4 player game.
Sac Flayer to Altar, float the from Altar, Flayer re-enters from undying and hits someone for 5, and then use the floating to remove Flayers counter and draw a card with Sage. Rinse and repeat until all opponents are certifiably dead.

Not sure if Spark Double would help but with the whole copying thing and it not being legendary maybe? Looks like the de I would be fun though. Love getting max value on etbs and Yarok! +1

You could add a Spark Double to your deck to make a non legendary copy of your commander earring you 2 removal triggers and a nice +2/+2 to all your non reaper king scarecrows which will only have +1/+1 on them which is still good.

I'll try to break things down by category. Spark Double needs a spot in the deck asap. Copy Marchesa for double Dethrone, the copies protect one another, and the copy immediately protects itself.

hungry000 Thanks for the suggestions. Replacing Spark Double / Clone with Phantasmal Image is a good call, when I've played this deck I'll occasionally get stuck with the 4 costing copy spells. This is somewhat of a budget deck though (I'll add that tag), I was trying to keep it on the cheaper side since it's just for casual play. I do like the idea of replacing Merfolk Secretkeeper with some kind of removal though (probably Lightning Bolt ).

Ok, I've ran Marchesa for several years now albeit not theft focused. First thing is work on lowering your avg. cmc to 3.5 or less (preferably 3.3ish).
Spark Double copying Marchesa for double dethrone, the two copies protect one another, and the copy enters immediately protecting itself.
Sage of Fables / Metallic Mimic - Immediately protects Marchesa and they also allow you to abuse ETB/Death triggers on everyone's turn instead of once per round. I.e. Sower of Temptation , Vindictive Lich , etc.
Skullclamp is excellent here with all the sacrificing going on.
I'll try to suggest cuts if I get a minute but I'd skim off the top (Primordials etc). Feel free to check out my list for inspiration, it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

I recommend playing Phantasmal Image instead of Spark Double / Clone . Two mana is much more playable than 4, and the sacrifice clause on it isn't really a big deal since it'll only ever be targeted by removal anyway.
Next, I'd ditch Merfolk Secretkeeper for Aether Vial (assuming this isn't a budget deck). Mill doesn't really do anything here, and blocking is just less efficient than killing opposing creatures with removal ( Lightning Bolt ) in Modern. Vial lets you cheat out Dwarves faster, especially with Phantasmal Image since it's also a two mana creature.

Looks good! Melek is really cool. What do you think of these? Mana Geyser , Turnabout , Snap , Spellseeker , Spark Double , Sensei's Divining Top , Scroll Rack , Serum Visions , Beacon of Tomorrows , Temporal Mastery , Bloodwater Entity , Shenanigans
