Bedlam

Enchantment

Creatures can't block.

Gleeock on Pooping Outside the Litterbox (Marisi Goad)(C)

3 weeks ago

Hello, I have an ancient Marisi deck: Cats off the Lawn! That has slowly evolved over time to be an oddball Naya enchantress deck with a little bit of aggression (because enchantress is not exactly known for that... so why not?).

Anyway, a few helpful things i've found along the way:

  1. protection keyword rules - evasion & resistance to removal combines really nicely... an early version of my deck was all about that: Hexdrinker & Haktos the Unscarred were great. I'm still in love with Earnest Fellowship

  2. Rabble Rousing - while good in my enchantress shell is equally good (maybe better) in a creature-spitting shell like yours. Court of Grace at least gives you an evasive creature consistently & the first card draw from monarch.

  3. Bedlam is amazing. The chaos and angst it causes is worth it.. not defending anyway.

  4. Crescendo of War also amazing... again, not defending anyway :)

Anyway, my meta became pretty heavy in non-combat wincons & such, or there would become this unintended sort of "screw you" minigame where players would waste a bunch of resources to workaround swing at me while they could since I put so many eggs in that one goading basket. so I eventually changed the shell to make the deck not really care about Marisi as much, but also use him (as you mentioned), as more of a strategy shiftpoint.

Ideas.

Bedlam spicy card creatures cannot block. Agro your opponents out.

Imposing Grandeur neat wheel that let's you draw 6 and your opponents probably draw 2 or 3.

Surestrike Trident w/a free equipt cost your creatures tap to deal dmg equal to their power.

Forging the Tyrite Sword slow ramp w/ a equipment tutor.

Skullclamp can be op with all the tokens. Yes most aren't 1 toughness but they will die alot.

Goblin Gaveleer big creature when you add equipment

Goblin Bombardment alot of tokens to throw around

Bitterthorn, Nissa's Animus Sword of the Animist ramp 1 is a living weapon too.

Most x and y Swords are expensive but feel free to consider them.

Although these are interesting ideas I went back through your list and i think you need more interaction.

Think anything from Wasteland type effects to Path to Exile or grave hate Soul-Guide Lantern protection Blacksmith's Skill I'm sure you have some favorites. I'd add at least 3 or 4 more. I personally like it when even If I don't draw my answer to a problem I at least have one in my deck.

Especially grave hate. I don't think I'd suggest Rest in Peace but I really think everyone should run 1 or 2 pieces of grave hate recursion is so popular and powerful these days you need to have an answer or you aren't playing the game.

Happy brewing!

Middle school for me. I believe my dad got the box for $85. That's so cool you were able to get proper orders to the family business.

Very generous gift and nice memory. I was lucky I pulled a Cradle and Academy from my one box.

I still have that mindset/mentality but this game has been hollowed out by the sharks/vultures/whales. I hate to see what it has become.

Haha I too also don't think it was play tested properly. All the legendary lands are iconic and powerful. Telepathy is a very cool power creeped uncommon. I always had a soft spot for Hidden Guerrillas. Excellent choice for favorite creature. Green deserves land destruction! I'm in the same lane as you but with Endless Wurm. I know it was an artifact block but the enchantments were so powerful. Sneak Attack is my favorite engine piece still to this day. Bedlam has always intrigued me as reverse Moat. Contamination is power at any cost. Gamble is a perfectly balanced red tutor.

As you can tell I really loved this set and what it did to the card pool. Every EDH deck I build has at least 1 Urza Saga card.

Bothersome Quasit and Bedlam allow you to goad unimpeded. Bedlam is a bit ballsy and has the potential to backfire but the quasit is worth its weight in gold here.

Vengeful Ancestor is a stud here.

Beloved Chaplain, Soltari Foot Soldier, Soltari Champion, Soltari Visionary, Spirit en-Dal, Spirit Mantle, and Champion of Lambholt will ensure you get through in combat to goad someone.

Authority of the Consuls in addition to Urabrask makes it so every hastey boy isn't sent your way and makes it impossible for your opponents to play fresh ungoaded blockers.

I've also had really good results out of 'deals combat damage to an opponent' effects due to a lack of blockers once a goad chain gets going. Stuff like Aerial Extortionist, Ancient Gold Dragon, and Scepter of Celebration.

A pet card of mine that's hilariously effective here is Kusari-Gama. It'll get your big boys through or wipe their board. Equip it to Soltari Guerrillas to ensure no one can block ANY of your creatures without immediate retaliation.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Marisi the Pimp - (Combat) Trickin' Hoes

Thanks for the kind words Entity_178! I agree Bedlam could be improved on, it's mostly in there for the name :) Right away, I think Furnace of Rath would be better and I'm sure there are even better options.

I hope your group enjoys the deck and I hope you can make it even more chaotic!

I will 100% be running this with my magic group! This deck looks like an absolute joy! Not sure if I like Bedlam though. I feel like there are more chaotic options? Love the idea of a Jhoira enchantment deck though! I'd say you know exactly how to create a commander deck, mate. Well done <3

Abzan Falconer or a couple of the other Outlast cards. Maybe Kalonian Hydra

Since you have to attack to activate the second ability you could use something that lets you attack with impunity. Bedlam, Vigor, Iroas, God of Victory, Master Warcraft, Cosmotronic Wave etc.

How has the deck been playing recently? Any weaknesses to note?

I absolutely love this deck list, but have a couple of questions and/or suggestions for you.

A. It looks like you have a total of 16 instants/sorceries. Do you ever have an issue with producing treasures with Storm-Kiln Artist? It's an excellent card, but I'm unsure (since I haven't played this list) that you would get enough value here. In it's place you could play something fun like Kazuul's Toll Collector or something that helps you cheat equip costs like Brass Squire. Imagine paying only 3 mana to play a creature, then immediately attaching 3-4 equipment to it for free! lol

B. Although I've played my share of Nettlecyst, I think you have some better options here. It has the opportunity to pump your commmander a great deal, if you're able to take advantage of your treasure generation and get some equipment on the battlefield. But what happens when you play this after all your artifacts get destroyed or exiled? I think in the long term, you'd get more value out of Sword of Forge and Frontier and/or The Reaver Cleaver. The sword costs the same, provides protection, card advantage and has the ability to pump your commander by playing additional lands. While the Reaver Cleaver is not only on theme, but helps put treasures back onto the battlefield, pumping your commander and progressing your Hellkite Tyrant alt win-con strategy.

C. I have some suggestions on your landbase

Great Furnace -> Snow-Covered Mountain - "2008-04-01: A permanent that’s more than one of these types (such as an artifact creature) counts only once." So an artifact land would only pump Bane by 1/1. Ditch this land for another snow-covered mountain to increase your chances of utilizing Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle in the mid/end game.

Darksteel Citadel -> Snow-Covered Mountain - See above comment

Sokenzan, Crucible of Defiance -> Snow-Covered Mountain - I appreciate that this can make blockers (Bane should be the only attacker you care about), but cards like Bedlam make them irrelevant. Let's add a snow-mountain to continue to improve our Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle potential.

Cathedral of War -> Command Beacon - Bane is going to be a target. Why bust treasures, when you can just send him to your hand and cast him for way less.

Bonders' Enclave -> Valakut Awakening  Flip - besides your commander (who is going to be a major target), you only have 4 other creatures with 4+ power. You don't want to have to spend mana to equip something, just so you can turn around and spend 4 more mana, to draw a card. This mdfc offers at least 1 card, for 1 less (floor), which is already better.

D. While, Endless Atlas can stick around for awhile, I think (maybe) you might get more immediate value from Seize the Spoils. It's only once, and yes it's sorcery speed, but you get 2 cards immediately, 2 treasures to pump Bane, and can feed your graveyard, giving Goblin Engineer and Goblin Welder more targets.

E. A fun card you could consider, and is a pet card of mine, is Surestrike Trident. It's so fun to watch people's faces when this hits the battlefield and they read what it does :D
