Talisman of Creativity

Talisman of Indulgence

Talisman of Dominance

Pain lands such as Fiery Islet too

Are also pretty good ones if you're a masochist like me. You're playing black though, so why wouldn't you be? Hehe. Consistent color profile is important in these multicolored libraries.

My grixis under Thraximundar is undergoing some major changes right now. Check it out for more ideas on ramp and lands.

Your manabase is pretty slow (as you know), considering it's mostly taplands. If I were you I would consider cutting quite a few of the taplands in favor of basics, with a bias towards green, and then run a significant amount of green mana ramp, like Sakura-Tribe Elder , Rampant Growth , Farseek , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach etc.

As for lands, Exotic Orchard is an inexpensive land that taps for any mana, and depending on your budget, City of Brass isn't too bad either.

Chromatic Lantern is pretty much a must have in any 5C deck if you can afford it, and all of the talismans (like Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Creativity ) are really cheap now and super good to manafix :)

I'm guessing this is a Grenzo, Dungeon Warden deck. You need to list him as your commander, and that will help more people figure out how to help you. The mana base could probably be improved by getting more fast lands, but that depends on budget, and can be corrected over time. I'd recommend switching of the life-gain lands for Temple of Malice , as it gives you another scry.

Workhorse in here seems....bad? Six mana to make four and then it dies doesn't seem a good rate. Better to run another mana rock that sticks around. I'm not a big fan of the lockets, either, like Rakdos Locket . If you want the card draw, run Commander's Sphere . Otherwise, I'd run Talisman of Indulgence . You should also try to maindeck Skullclamp , especially if you'll be sacrificing creatures.

As for a wincon, I'm not sure. I haven't played Grenzo, so am not sure what the typical paths to victory used for him are. Hope this all helps.

Wrong Talisman, Talisman of Indulgence is the right one.

Hey, nice midrange version, but consider some more one/two drop Vamps who can fit in with a midrange strategy? Two of them are in the maybeboard.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Voldaren Pariah
  • Deathbringer Liege
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
  • Tithe Drinker

Midrange benefits from a good three drop consider more three drops? Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a good three drop Vamp, flying and pumps your attacking team of Vamps. Forerunner of the Legion is a three drop Vamp tutor and it's other ability is also good with eminence. Shared Animosity has a powerful repeatable effect for attacking Vamps. Painful Truths is a draw spell upgrade. Read the Bones is another draw spell upgrade.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Damnable Pact
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Teysa Karlov
  • Elenda, the Dusk Rose
  • Requiem Angel

Swords to Plowshares is handy efficient exile creature removal, a staple card of Commander. Boros Charm can at instant speed save your Vamp army from most board wipes and it's other modes are also relevant. The Talismans: Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Indulgence are upgrades for the Signets because Talismans can be used the turn you play them to make mana (colorless or colored) without needing another mana source.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Sangromancer
  • Kheru Bloodsucker
  • Rakdos Signet
  • Boros Signet
  • Orzhov Signet

Lands to consider adding:

Lands to cut for these:

  • Stone Quarry
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • 3x Plains
  • 1x Mountain

Milkspy on Marchesa's Night on the Town

As an easy and really cheap upgrade I'd replace all the lockets with the talismans such as: Talisman of Creativity , Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence . You can drop these talisman's (talismen) before you drop down your commander which can come in huge, also these allow you to lower your life total, thus making Marchesa, the Black Rose 's dethrone ability easier to trigger.

Currently I'm experimating with a budget Marchesa, the Black Rose - Theft deck aswell.

Black can also be for reanimation and tutors. Angel of Despair is a good Orzhov Angel and Rune-Scarred Demon is a good Demon. With Kaalia you play a lot of high CMC creatures because her ability lets you cheat these creatures onto the battlefield. There's however a drawback when playing so many high CMC creatures, it can make your overall deck's mana curve clunky to play, but you'll have this problem with any Angel deck because many Angels have high mana costs. If Kaalia is getting to attack and you're getting to cheat creatures onto the battlefield then you're in a good position. This is however not always the case thus want back-up plans, other ways to take advantage of high CMC creatures without Kaalia. Build your deck in a way that you're not completely relying on Kaalia in a game.

Reanimation can be a back-up plan. Ways to get high CMC creatures out of your hand/library into your graveyard and then onto the battlefield. Or ways to reanimate your dead creatures or even Kaalia since she will be a prime target for opponent's removal. Some options are:

Another back-up plan is ramp especially Signets and Talismans. High CMC creatures have high mana costs which ramp can help with to cast them without needing Kaalia. Low CMC mana rocks (0-2 CMC) also help to ramp into Kaalia which is good. Some options are:

Other back-up plans can be other ways to cheat high CMC creatures onto the battlefield or combo finishers. Some options are:

With Kaalia you want lots of protection and haste enablers because you want to be able to attack with her the turn you play her and you want to be able to protect her so she can do this. Some options are:

Kaalia can provide a lot of value especially if you can successfully cheat a high CMC creature onto the battlefield the turn you play her then you're in a really good position in a game. For instance with Kaalia cheat Aurelia, the Warleader onto the battlefield. Aurelia gives you another combat phase thus another creature can be cheated onto the battlefield with Kaalia because she gets to attack again.
