Word of Seizing Discussion

Patolea on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

3 months ago

Older20 It's better use Second Sunrise or Faith's Reward .

MahBoi100 Like Jack the Ripper, let's go by parts:

The first three cards are removal spells, we are not trying to control the board, we are trying to conduct towards a result that benefits us.

I really like the idea of Varchild, you strengthens your opponents while protecting yourself.

Scheming is nice and dangerous at the same time.

Crown didn't create any value for your own.

Mathas attract to much attention.

Flash is CMC 6, that's too heavy, but it's a alternative to Word of Seizing , a card that saw a lot of play in this deck in the past.

You blowed my mind with Master Warcraft , excellent card for the aikido strategy.

Disharmony is like a fog of one creature or a removal spell, since you can get and block another attacking creature with it, both of the effects has better options in magic.

Jabari's Influence it's a alternative to Word of Seizing , a card that saw a lot of play in this deck in the past.

Soul Snare I like the reason behind the use of this card. Nice!

Boros Fury-Shield Man, this card is aewsome, it's better than Delirium and Backlash .

Encircling Fissure you usually don't have creatures to abuse of this, but it's a nice fog, can enter in the place of other.

Treacherous and mindclaw are heavy, cmc 5, and a shot in the dark.

Coveted act likes the monarch itself, a second monarch for 6 manas.

looking through other brion decks, have a couple of suggestions:

Phyrexian Processor - costs life once, makes large tokens to flink & gain life back.

Mimic Vat - token generator that can exile an opponent's (or your) enter play effect, then sling it with brion

Harness by Force - steal multiple creatures, can dial in as many as you need

Goblin Bombardment - backup sack outlet with no mana cost

Malevolent Whispers , Traitorous Instinct , and Unwilling Recruit - other stealers, these ones gives bonus power

Word of Seizing - because split-second is stupid-good against control

Cradle of Vitality - gain life equal to power? better amp up the next thing to chuck...

Orim's Thunder - a boros staple, disenchant + burn in one card is a good value


overall, I'd probably toss the Fling and Thud over permanents that can sac for less, or get something else out of it (like Carnage Altar )

With regard to a lower avg. CMC I recommend Cloudshift . This card is so flexible and perfectly fits into aikido style.

  • It's a nice counter for spells targeting your creatures.
  • Use it with Dualcaster Mage to copy an instant/sorcery for .
  • It synergizes very well with Word of Seizing due to getting permanent control of the targeted creature.
  • Become the monarch by flickering Queen Marchesa .
  • You tapped all your deathtouch creatures and need a blocker? Cloudshift is your friend (does not work with tokens though).
  • It's fetchable with Sunforger .

You can definitely make Omnath, Locus of Rage competitive. I have a friend who plays it.

Ramp is your best friend. And Sac Outlets are your best friend along with some wrath effects.

Purphoros, God of the Forge works wonders in the deck, especially along side the staples of Avenger of Zendikar and Rampaging Baloths .

Cards that you need to make the deck function better are Explore type effects: Oracle of Mul Daya , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Exploration , Explore , Enter the Unknown , Journey of Discovery , Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Summer Bloom , Wayward Swordtooth ... These work to great effect in getting the most out of Omnath's triggered ability and might hinder your opponents' plans of sweeping the board.

Also, you should be running more lands than the usual EDH deck because you want to be able to keep playing lands.

Recursion is also what will assist in the control metas: Regrowth , Eternal Witness , Den Protector , Greenwarden of Murasa , Recollect , The Mending of Dominaria ... These will help you maintain use of the cards that get removed. Also it allows you to let your general go to Graveyard and get it back to cast it for regular CMC.

Some form of protection is necessary: Heroic Intervention , Ranger's Guile , Blossoming Defense , Lightning Greaves ...

As for sac outlets, you have a great one in Goblin Bombardment and Greater Good and also Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar .

You could also use some triggers upon a creature entering the battlefield: Electropotence , Impact Tremors , In the Web of War , Mana Echoes , Warstorm Surge , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Colossal Majesty , Elemental Bond ...

And of course you could use some of the staples: Sylvan Library , Krosan Grip , Constant Mists , Beast Within , Word of Seizing ...

As for some sweepers: Chandra's Ignition and Star of Extinction are good ones. Hour of Devastation does some work. Insurrection is usually a good game finisher.

The world is your "oyster" good sir! So have at it. And happy shuffling. Hope this helps.

Gleeock on Play opponents cards, what cards ...

Don't forget Geth, Lord of the Vault , Word of Seizing , Dragonlord Silumgar ... & my favorite pet-card: Frenzied Fugue - the card with which I either ult. other player's planeswalkers or just keep taking advantage of their (-) ability.

Thanks BlazinT! Much appreciated.

MattN7498 Thanks for your comment. The nice part of this deck is that there are numerous cards that can win you the game that wouldn't normally be considered wincons. Of course Gisela, Blade of Goldnight equipped with Sunforger gets the job done real quick so does Price of Progress , Rakdos Charm , Deflecting Palm , Bloodchief Ascension , and Master of Cruelties and many others.

If none of those seem to get the job done you may choose to use someone else's wincon with Mirage Mirror , Stolen Strategy , Word of Seizing , Necromancy , or Reverberate

I've played this deck countless times now and I've never worried about closing out games - the later the game goes the more confident that I have a lock on it.
