I like your take on Queen Marchesa - very different to my own. Have you thought about adding cards like Alhammarret's Archive, Twilight Prophet and Well of Lost Dreams. I think all of them would work very well in your deck.

One card that might help the Boros curse in this deck specifically is Well of Lost Dreams. With how much potential life you could be gaining it might fix the card draw.

On the note of The Boros Curse, EDHRECast just put up a podcast about this problem and it might be helpful to listen to it.

Blood Artist & Zulaport Cutthroat I see in your maybe board. Both I run and are huge aids for the small advantage they will gain you in the game every turn. Against the right deck a Blood Artist + Board Wipe can kill a player.

Budget restrictions are fine in this deck as you can get a lot of power for little cost.

Phyrexian Reclamation, Mentor of the Meek, & Greed are big card advantage pieces in this deck as the life loss is negligible here. Also it's fun to sac and return to sack again a Solemn Simulacrum (another little more expensive card you should get). Well of Lost Dreams also but it ties to your life gain not you paying life... oh darn.

For ramp I recommend Sword of the Animist & Crypt Ghast. The sword is a huge ramp card in this deck as you can get some early attacks in with your cheap commander for some lands and late game you toss it on a creature you want to sack and attack with it, sack it pre damage if you don't want to make an enemy and gain +1 life over what you would before and gain a basic all for 2 extra mana.

Rhox Faithmender though a little higher cost is a must in this deck. All the life gain! Gray Merchant of Asphodel is almost as good on life gain but can also kill some one.

Aetherflux Reservoir as a win condition because all the life has to have a purpose.

Blind Obedience, Pontiff of Blight, Authority of the Consuls give great incremental life gain.

Fumigate is a great budget board wipe in the deck.

Anguished Unmaking I like as a back up to Ayli's ability.

Feel free to look over my Ayli, Eternal board wipes deck for some more ideas.

Hey there! I have a similar deck: Dynamite with a Laser Beam. Maybe you can get some ideas from it.

I've had a lot of fun with Warstorm Surge. It allows your assassin tokens to kill something on entry. Things like Fire Whip and Viridian Longbow turn the queen into a rattlesnake too.

I see you have a lifegain thing going on. Archangel of Thune, Cradle of Vitality, and Well of Lost Dreams might interest you.

Oh no Snivy__, I meant that I love artifacts in general, not two artifacts in particular. I considered Alhammarret's Archive along with Well of Lost Dreams for this deck, but I decided that the Well is enough. And since I have a whole deck dedicated to artifacts, I'm fine with that. Though a more fitting name would probably be "Things I love about Magic apart from artifacts" :-D

Hey, but thanks for your response!

You said that you had two favorite artifacts in your description of "Black", but there is only one artifact in the entire deck. Well of Lost Dreams does fit well with the lifegain theme, but if the deck is "Things I love about MTG", then you should have your favorite artifacts in here!
