Strangelove on Marchesa the black rose

Wassup LordWaterbird, +1!

@Your post

I built a bad Black Rose Budget Deck and a Black Rose EDH Index of anything I found that might fit.

Something that has always helped me is adding custom tags to count draw and ramp, like so:

1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician #Draw #Sacrifice #Removal

If you really want to cap Marchesa's power level at 7/8 I think you'd have to gut many of the fun cards and play a really consistent, conservative midrange style with lots of interaction or MLD to really be an 8.

That'd be pretty spikey, but here are a few alternative (6-7/10) ideas:

Don't skimp on mana! 5 Ramp and 36 Lands is low. I'd go up to 37 lands and 10 ramp at least, prioritizing 2 drop ramp... eg. Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Indulgence , Fellwar Stone , etc.

Lean into aggro/midrange... BBB, BB, UU, etc, are really going to slow you down. I would only run cards with those costs that can compare to Necropotence , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , etc. Eg. Grave Pact is good, but Plaguecrafter does more (...also Merciless Executioner / Fleshbag Marauder ). If you're trying to wipe the board, I'd go for Massacre Girl / Profaner of the Dead , etc.

Vigean Graftmage ... really good with a Sac outlet. Olivia, Mobilized for War is similar if you have good draw.

Fire Covenant ... awesome card. Dethrone is tricky and so you need to be able to consistently manipulate life.

Thalakos Deceiver and Zealous Conscripts .... Stealing cards is a lot of fun.

Flayer of the Hatebound ... this card is MVP in Marchesa. Add this.

Currently my deck wins through combat damage after a battle of attrition. The game plan being to control the board by recurring my creatures for value while keeping my opponents from progressing with cards like Grave Pact , Glen Elendra Archmage , and etc.

You could easily include any of the various Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combos if you'd prefer a combo win while only making minimal changes to the deck.

there's plenty of room for something like the Dramatic Reversal Isochron Scepter combo.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts would both be good on their own and also obviously combo together.
