There are plenty of cards that are fun with Skullbriar. If you have trouble protecting him there are spells like, Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense. Hope that helps!

Mmm I see, and no worries, I play with a fairly degenerate group meta haha so I'm very used to a lot of interactions by T3-5. But yeah if ya need any help feel free to ask, I'm a bit of an Abzan reanimation specialist so there are so much fun cards that you can use in those colors, especially with +1/+1 interactions. Some cards you may never even hear of might be like Unspeakable Symbol ^^

I'm not fully convinced by the Grim Monolith here, it's better in decks that need a huge burst of mana early, then low-cost afterwards. I don't think this deck fits that description, personally.

No Fleshbag Marauder or Merciless Executioner, but you're running Slum Reaper?

You're missing Oona's Blackguard here, which is BACKBREAKING for opponents.

Could run Unspeakable Symbol if you really want to protect your stuff.

I'd run Blasphemous Act over Damnation, though you should probably run both.

I'd want Wheel of Fortune over Windfall, though again I might try both.

Slave of Bolas and Grave Betrayal are awesome ways to get your hands on your opponents' stuff.

You need to run WAY more creatures to make full use of Marchesa's ability, IMO. My Marchesa deck (from early in my EDH career, don't judge me: *RETIRED* Roses Aren't Red: Marchesa EDH) had over 30, though it was a bit of a different take on her (much more focused on her ability and much more budget). I'd check out that link, it may give you some other ideas :)

Very cool, very unique

You've got some hardcore stuff like Unspeakable Symbol, Souldrinker, Bloodflow Connoisseur, etc. I also like Blood Artist & co, Marchesa's Infiltrator and Scourge of the Throne for funsies

Your maybeboard options: Erebos, God of the Dead, Grave Pact, and I was thinking hard about Walking Ballista and I feel like there's a combo there?! Doom Whisperer should be in Karador if it isn't already; but just a great card overall

How do you feel about Ambition's Cost and Ancient Craving? They're slightly different than Painful Truths and Promise of Power... Depends on how much draw you think you need I guess. I'd maybe suggest Dusk Legion Zealot and Razaketh, the Foulblooded as well. Razaketh definitely lol

Looks fun! +1

Hey, saw your forum topic asking if any recent cards are worth an upgrade in any of your decks. Out of all your decks this one in my opinion has the most potential for upgrades. Even just with cards that are already in Magic, not ones that were in recent sets. You seem serious about upgrading this deck therefore most of my suggestions won't be budget cards.

Cards in recent sets to consider:

Other recent:

Cards that can be potential upgrades for cards here:

  1. Diabolic Intent or Vampiric Tutor > Diabolic Tutor
  2. Maelstrom Pulse > Hero's Downfall or Putrefy
  3. Trophy > Abrupt Decay or Putrefy
  4. Reanimate or Animate Dead > Vigor Mortis
  5. Sylvan Library > Ordeal of Nylea
  6. Berserk > Soul's Might
  7. Scavenging Ooze > Obsessive Skinner
  8. Night's Whisper > Harmonize
  9. Drana, Liberator of Malakir > Vastwood Hydra
  10. Rishkar, Peema Renegade > Fungal Behemoth
  11. Pir > Varolz, the Scar-Striped
  12. Unspeakable Symbol > Death's Presence
  13. Umezawa's Jitte > Blessings of Nature
  14. Forum > Evolving Wilds
  15. Greater Good > Curse of Predation

Good luck with your deck.


pedroedmarcos on Marchesa VS Garna

1 month ago

I did no explain the situation that well, but I'll try to give a best example here in the comments. So:

My opponent have A Marchesa deck, and he cast Reins of Power and get all my creatures. He cast Marhcesa and He put's +1/+1 counters on them with Unspeakable Symbol or something like that and after that He sac them to Ashnods alter triggering Marchesa. So here are the questions:

1-Let's say that I had 4 creatures that were stolen. Since He sac them 1 at a time, It will happen 4 triggers of Marchesa 1 at a time. So If I respond in on the last Sac+trigger Casting Garna, the Bloodflame Will all the creatures return to my hand right?

2-Can I respond to it At the end of his turn?

3-Same case and situation as situation 1, but instead of casting Garna, what will happen If I cast Thrilling Encore?

For your first deck I would recommend something in two colors. You get more than a single color but the mana base is still easy to put together. 3+ can be a little tricky...

Of the ones you have mentioned though I would highly recommend either Marchesa. They are just an absolute blast to play. My Divine Decree is a bit expensive but shows that Queen Marchesa has a lot of play styles. My black rose I just put back together with cards I had lying about so it is semi-budget, The Ever Returning Rose.

For Marchesa, the Black Rose you do need some key pieces like Unspeakable Symbol or you are going to have a tough time keeping +1/+1 counters on your guys. With recent prints of Guildmages' Forum and Forge of Heroes plus good old Opal Palace it is a pretty good time to get in on the black rose band wagon. My version really revolves around entering and leaving the battlefield, effects like Dire Fleet Ravager going off every turn really puts the hurt on people. It takes a little bit of setup to do that though.

My Divine Decree is a group slug deck with pillow forts to stop the relentless onslaught from my pals as I drain their lives away. People really underestimate the power of Manabarbs until they have to pay for their big hitters, lol.
