StopShot on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

1 week ago

I did a brief read-through of your deck description and objectives. I wasn't familiar with the term "Aikido" until after I read it here. I run a full-focused combo deck and the term Aikido seems at odd ends with Combo since stopping the combo will mean disrupting your opponent's board-state.

There isn't any card that just turns off combo since combo strategies could rely on graveyard or storm or infinite token loops or infinite mana use. An excellent card you might want to consider that can help fall in line with Aikido would be Damping Sphere which hits hard against decks that try to storm out for the win. A good way to deal with graveyard-based combos could be Mimic Vat which not only can serve as a good deterrent, but it's triggered ability can stop a graveyard loop when in a pinch. Lastly if someone aims a lethal spell at you that deals infinite damage or infinite loss of life or forces you to draw infinite cards I've found that cards like Fork and Reverberate are excellent ways of turning those spells against their caster and not only that, but if they die to your copy that effectively exiles their original spell before it ever resolves saving you in the process. Fork and Reverberate are also good at giving your Price of Progress or Backlash more of an edge and can stop counter spells as well.

If you mind can you tell me what combos you're up against? I might be able to come up with a suggestion better suited to your meta. Also I noticed you have Vampire Nighthawk listed as a win condition which I found a bit amusing and out of place. Could you tell me what significance it holds in your deck? If you're looking for an effective aerial blocker I think Mischievous Poltergeist does the trick trading lethality for durability. Also if you have any issues with creatures trampling you to death you might want to consider Dead-Iron Sledge which practically works like super deathtouch killing the creature before combat damage.

Correct. CMC is one of the parts of a card that does not change. The only exception to that are spells, while on the stack their CMC is + the rest of their cost and while not on the stack the is zero. Otherwise CMC does not change.

sleeper_agent007, I could actually see Thada and Grasp replacing some mana ramp options because of the fact that they could easily grab Sol Ring. However, Acquire is much better than both of those for this reason: if I wanted to grab a card with the highest impact possible, that is most likely going to be a high cost card, potentially 6 mana or more, so I would rather pay than for X=6. The only exception to that rule is when opponents aren't playing any artifacts worth stealing with either Thada or Acquire, so the point is irrelevant. Fortunately, the "early game" doesn't really matter, as "struggling in the early game" is one of the best strategic choices I have seen if the goal is to be the winner of the game.

I also do see where you are coming from as well, and I think you hit the nail on the head when you said it comes down to card preference. I could definitely see replacing a few of the ramp cards with those cards in the future.

Legendary Creature - Human Scientist

Whenever you cast a spell that targets a creature you control, you exile that spell as it resolves.

, : You may cast a spell exiled by ~ with converted mana cost X or less without paying its mana cost. If you do, draw a card, then discard a card.

The key to developing a theory is repeated testing.
