One last thing: Even though I didn't put in some of your cards. I'm not saying to take them out. I would specifically leave in some of your enchantments. They are pretty good.

Also, I will probably delete that deck within the month. So If you want to keep the deck as a reference make sure to copy it.

I don't have too much time to look at the deck. It's not really my preferred commander choice, but if I had to give my two cents, I would say to cut out some cards that make people discard, like Locust Miser and Gnat Miser. By the time you get those out most players would have already played a few cards; so they won't be forced to discard. That, and you already have a consistent way to get people to discard with your commander.

That said, since you need to discard yourself in order for the commander's ability to work, you need to make sure that you have a lot of draw engines. You also should consider putting in a fair number of revival cards so you can steal other people's creatures from graveyards.

Below is a rough draft I just made. Some cards you already have in the deck. It's more of a basic outline of what I was thinking about. It's by no means perfect. Like I said I didn't have too much time making it. But if you want to look at it for suggestions, go ahead.

Side Note: Since I made it more revival heavy, I decided to also make it more Board Wipe Heavy.

That's true, but I don't have too many sac outlets. And I don't want Puppeteer Clique to determine when I play a Board Wipe.

I think that something like Thalakos Deceiver works much better for my personal deck.

I typically don't revive things too often using spells. I mostly get things back on the battlefield using Marchesa's ability. So while i like Entomb and Buried Alive, the deck just doesn't have spells consistent enough to revive creatures just by using spells alone. And I have thought about using Show and Tell, but I don't like having other ppl take advantage of that spell. And Puppeteer Clique only lets me gain control of things temporarily. I prefer to permanently gain control of other people's creatures.

With that said, I do love Dream Halls. I will heavily consider putting that in my deck. IF I don't put it in this deck, I will definitely put that in my mimeoplasm deck!

Thank you for your suggestion, and I will definitely take a look at your decks.

Ok...There are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (like Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards). The problem is, these cards hardly do anything other than putting counters on themselves. They're pretty much duds. So to make up for this, people will put in good sac outlets, (Cards like Mind Slash, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Attrition, etc). This type of deck gets its engine running STRICTLY from it's sac outlets, (NOT FROM ITS CREATURES) and because of this, it is a bit more reliant on it's commander.

The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck is not RELYING on its sac outlets, (although it does have a few) but rather on the bounce effects of creatures. (Cards like Mulldrifter and Harvester of Souls). With this type of deck, you're also not fully relying on your commander. Marchesa is just a perk. If you don't have her out, you can still play your creatures and benefit from them.

Also keep in mind, that it isn't too hard getting +1/+1 counters on your creatures just using the dethrone ability itself. I find that most, if not all the time, you will NOT be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.

This is the Marchesa deck that I personally made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

- Sneak Attack
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Demonic Tutor
- River Kelpie
- Necropotence
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Diabolic Intent
- Harvester of Souls
- Glen Elendra Archmage
- Mind Slash
- Thalakos Deceiver

NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are good cards to help abuse the ETB triggers.
