Thalakos Deceiver

Creature — Thalakos Wizard

Do you happen to have a slot for Thalakos Deceiver ? It's like a $3 creature thief.

Thalakos Deceiver is exactly what you're looking for except is costs $4. Notice you don't have to steal the creature from the guy you attacked. Always attack for the Dethrone bonus, get your counter, sac, steal any-damn-thing then Deceiver comes back to you.

Helm of Possession is also hilarious in a deck like this.

With all the sac cards you have maybe a few cheap creatures that come into play with counters would be a good fit. Things with Fabricate, Modular etc. My Marchesa deck is based on Modular and artifact creatures so the only thing i ever need to get a counter on is the boss. You already have some Graft creatures so I am assuming Cytoplast Manipulator would put you over budget?

Kaya's Ghostform is is probably free at this point. Play it on Marchesa to protect her or play it on an opponents creature after you steal it so you get it forever after it dies.

Forge of Heroes and Thalakos Deceiver are both incredible with Marchesa.

I recommend Thalakos Deceiver and Dauthi Mindripper

If you need more suggestions you're welcome to look at my deck.

i agree that Thalakos Deceiver is probably just too strong not to include, but the issues is that it can only sack itself, lets say someones tries to Path to Exile i need something else that can sac her for it :) but i do agree that i might have a few too many and i have also cutted one - btw i opened a war of the spark box and included some new cards unfortunately not a Ilharg, the Raze-Boar but you can check out the changes i have written about them in the description :)

you are totally right about Insurrection instead of molten primordial, that is something i have to look into in the future, thanks!

Krav, the Unredeemed seems interesting as well, but the live gain is rarely a benefit in marchesa unfortunately and i dont have enough "life total sinks" in yet i feel like, but nice effects still :)

i took a look at your deck yesterday and it looked interesting, will leave some comments when i have the time :D also thanks to you :)
