Talisman of Indulgence Discussion

SideBae on Mogis Slaughter House: Bleeding Out Or Mercy Kill

1 week ago

Sulfuric Vortex comes to mind... I think it's probably better than Falkenrath Noble . Eidolon of the Great Revel , Harsh Mentor and other such duders also work.

I also think that if you cut a few of the more expensive cards (ex: Kaervek the Merciless , Ward of Bones ) for more mana ramp ( Rakdos Signet , Talisman of Indulgence ...) you can get away with running just around 31 or 32 lands. That'll free up some more slots for low-to-the-ground burn. Overall I think the deck would improve by a lot if you lowered the average CMC to something like 2 or 2.5.

I don't think very highly of Dash Hopes , to be honest. Maybe your experience has been different than mine, but in general people will be perfectly happy to pay 5 life for a significant spell. You're probably better off running something that generates card advantage, like Commune with Lava or Light Up the Stage . Gamble isn't really card advantage, but I think you should run it if only for the selection. Same goes for Faithless Looting .

Wheel of Fortune is amazing, although it's sitting around $100 these days. Reforge the Soul works as a more accessible replacement. Theater of Horrors is worth considering, too.

If you want a discard-style sub-theme (with your Geier Reach Sanitarium , Painful Quandary ...) Waste Not can be helpful.

Harvester of Souls works pretty well as a top-end, I think. It gets you cards when your opponents sac guys.

Right. That's all I got. Good luck.

Strangelove on Marchesa the black rose

Wassup LordWaterbird, +1!

@Your post

I built a bad Black Rose Budget Deck and a Black Rose EDH Index of anything I found that might fit.

Something that has always helped me is adding custom tags to count draw and ramp, like so:

1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician #Draw #Sacrifice #Removal

If you really want to cap Marchesa's power level at 7/8 I think you'd have to gut many of the fun cards and play a really consistent, conservative midrange style with lots of interaction or MLD to really be an 8.

That'd be pretty spikey, but here are a few alternative (6-7/10) ideas:

Don't skimp on mana! 5 Ramp and 36 Lands is low. I'd go up to 37 lands and 10 ramp at least, prioritizing 2 drop ramp... eg. Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Indulgence , Fellwar Stone , etc.

Lean into aggro/midrange... BBB, BB, UU, etc, are really going to slow you down. I would only run cards with those costs that can compare to Necropotence , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , etc. Eg. Grave Pact is good, but Plaguecrafter does more (...also Merciless Executioner / Fleshbag Marauder ). If you're trying to wipe the board, I'd go for Massacre Girl / Profaner of the Dead , etc.

Vigean Graftmage ... really good with a Sac outlet. Olivia, Mobilized for War is similar if you have good draw.

Fire Covenant ... awesome card. Dethrone is tricky and so you need to be able to consistently manipulate life.

Thalakos Deceiver and Zealous Conscripts .... Stealing cards is a lot of fun.

Flayer of the Hatebound ... this card is MVP in Marchesa. Add this.

Noire_Samhain on [Primer] Alesha's Slaughterhouse

I gotta say, all I'd recommend is ramp. The talisman cycle in Alesha's colors should help. Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Conviction , and Talisman of Hierarchy should help. Chromatic Lantern helps to, as well as guaranteeing what colors you need. Ramp always speeds things up, makes your plan come to fruition faster.

I have a few suggestions for ya.

Ramp: Rakdos/Boros/ Orzhov Signet and Talisman of Indulgence /Conviction/Heirarchy over your Diamonds and Medallions.

Finisher: Shared Animosity

Draw: Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Champion of Dusk , and Greed .

I'll try to take another look when I get a moment.

enpc on "Burn everyone!" B/W/R - Pillow Fort Bleed

So, I would recommend adding more card advantage - the amount here feels underwhelming. Also, I would try to swap in 2 maan ramp for the current 3 mana stuff. The talsimans are really good here if you're preventing damage ( Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction ) as well as the signets ( Rakdos Signet , Boros Signet , Orzhov Signet ). You aslo have stuff like Fellwar Stone and the new Arcane Signet . You also have cards like Burnished Hart and Wayfarer's Bauble which help you straight up get lands.

I would also cut the Orzhov Basilica , you have lots of tapped lands and this will just slow you down more.

Last_Laugh on Edgar Markov, Legions Swarm

1 month ago

Not a bad start... I do have several suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.

Draw: You're lacking in this department. Necropotence , Twilight Prophet , Greed , and Herald's Horn . I literally run all those plus the draw creatures/Skullclamp you run.

Finishers: Drop Door of Destinies... it's a significant investment that does nothing for your current board and requires gas to get it to do anything after. Reconnaissance (2nd post dedicated entirely to this card) is your best finisher by far.

Board Protection: Teferi's Protection (if you have one). Boros Charm and Scapegoat are your next best options. Being able to quickly recover or dodge wraths outright wins games.

Ramp: It's worth running your Black Talismans. Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Indulgence , and Fellwar Stone

Creatures: Cordial Vampire and Drana, Liberator of Malakir

Misc.: Diabolic Intent and Austere Command
