Razaketh, the Foulblooded is a sacrifice tutor that you kill off your own creatures to tutor for more. The Famished Paladin,Necropotence, Gift of Immortality, Unspeakable Symbol would be the first to go. But you

Unspeakable Symbol should definitely be in here. It does both of the things Marchesa wants to do. Harvester of Souls and/or Grim Haruspex can be great card draw here as well. Avalanche Riders and Polluted Dead can get rid of troublesome lands like Arcane Lighthouse. Maybe the talisman for acceleration as well as life manipulation? Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence Marchesa is one of my favorite commanders. I always upvote a good Marchesa. :D

Huh, I wonder what your meta is if Marchesa is considered not OP. :-D

However, to try to be helpful, I suggest Unspeakable Symbol, that card is fantastic with the Black Rose.

Nice deck!

epajula: "My type." I think that you're taking this a bit too personally, my friend. Before going for ad hominem, I would take a step back and cool down. My opponent's aren't wrecking me by any stretch of the word. The politics of not being hit for a bunch of damage from Blood Artist triggers is a strong deterrent for meddling. I do hear your argument, and will test out Unspeakable Symbol at the soonest opportunity.

Last_Laugh: I do believe that Sneak Attack is in the list. As for tutors, I'll probably invest in them when I'm not buying into Ad Nauseam. Will have trouble picking what to cut. Also: is the amount of mana-producing permanents in the deck sufficient in your eyes? I've heard from quite a few edh players that my landbase is a bit slim, but I'm also not running a whole lot of huge bombs.

I second Unspeakable Symbol, that card is a 100% windmill slam into any Marchesa list. You put counters on stuff in response to targeted removal etc. or to get a combo going, you don't need to put a counter on everything. Also some lifegain cards are kinda needed here because yes, the deck is aggressive with its own life, consider Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Noxious Gearhulk, and/or Disciple of Bolas. The first two can be alt win-cons with anything adding counters (like unspeakable symbol), marchesa, and a sac outlet.

Few changes I'm considering, what y'all think?

Sepulchral Primordial or Chainer, Dementia Master. One turn return of 3 or return over multiple turns.

Animate Dead or Phyrexian Reclamation. One time deal or reusable.

Souldrinker or Unspeakable Symbol. Same cost of life, Symbol could however be used politically.

Knight of the White Orchid or Grand Abolisher. Don't really want to lose the ramp, but white is our secondary color and nothing else to replace really.

I am currently running Cytoplast Manipulator and Flayer of the Hatebound. As for Unspeakable Symbol, I need to test it out a bit more extensively. In my experience it tends to drain a bit too quickly. If my meta weren't as aggressive, I might consider it. As for Akroma, I do like the synergy, but it doesn't synergize much with the deck beyond that cheap flip.
