Grind on The Final Destination (The Afterlife)

9 months ago

oh disregard my previous card draw recommendations ---
i looked for card draw associated with creatures dying...
maybe Dark Prophecy, Erebos, Bleak-Hearted, Filigree Familiar, Corpse Augur, Harvester of Souls, Undead Augur, Solemn Simulacrum are more on-theme card draw options here.
also given how friggin good skullclamp is in this deck, maybe you want to run somethign to tutor for it -- Open the Armory or Steelshaper's Gift?

Last_Laugh on Betrayal at House Marchesa

10 months ago

My Marchesa list is a lot less theft focused but I still have a few suggestions.

Enchantment Removal: Chaos Warp 100% deserves a spot. It's Grixis' best answer to enchantments by far... don't let problematic enchantments like Solemnity or Rest in Peace wreck your day.

Combo: Flayer of the Hatebound is worth it for 36 damage per round in a 4 player game. It also goes infinite with Ashnod's Altar and Sage of Fables.

Draw: I'm not a fan of Read the Bones or 1 time draw in general. Reusable life gain or life loss with card draw would serve you better. Consider Disciple of Bolas, Corpse Augur, and/or Midnight Reaper.

Discard: Oona's Blackguard and Sadistic Hypnotist seal up games tighter than a Dolphin's butthole. Mean tactic but very effective.

I have several suggestions for you but this is a good start. I'll try to keep my recommendations budget(ish) friendly and I'll break it down by category.

Grixis Staple: Chaos Warp is our best answer to problematic enchantments like Solemnity or Rest in Peace .

Card Draw: Grim Haruspex , Midnight Reaper , Skullclamp , and Corpse Augur .

Boardwipes: Last One Standing and Jokulhaups .

Discard: Oona's Blackguard and Sadistic Hypnotist .

Sac Outlets: Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Falkenrath Aristocrat , and Goblin Bombardment .

If you're picking up what I'm putting down let me know, I can continue. I've played Marchesa for several years now and have one of the top rated decks on this site.

WUBRG87 Last thing I'd want is to sculpt your deck into something that doesn't feel like yours(!) - I love EDH's lack of homogeneity. Happy to give you my 2 cents with the direction I'd be thinking of from here though and with not too bad of a budget...

More of a sacrifice direction that isn't 'aristocrats'; add another altar ( Phyrexian Altar or Altar of Dementia ), maybe switch Dark Ritual for Culling the Weak - then you would have a good level of sac outlets to have some heavy hitters like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Kokusho, the Evening Star replace Noble/Zula/Buccaneer. It's a bit contradictory adding sac outlets and removing aristocrats I know but I think the aristocrats make better use of volume (like tokens) and our boy Chainer is better off packing more value into a big recur-able punch.

Blood for Bones , Whisper, Blood Liturgist and Diabolic Intent could be included then too. I like your use of Desecrated Tomb here and it gives you fodder for those last three I mentioned.

If it were me, I'd be thinking:

Also, to your point about the 'Compet-o-meter', I'd say the impact will be from the system rating Zula/Noble highly because of combo involvement in decks that revolve around them and the Buccaneer showing up in Nekusar, the Mindrazer lists, which tend to be pretty savage!, rather than necessarily your changes being significantly worse one-for-one. I actually really like Embodiment of Agonies in this, it's cheap and can be a massive beatstick pretty easily.

As someone who's played Gisa and Geralf for the past 2 years, you're missing a decent chunk of things.

First and foremost is any kind of interaction. Counterspells and kill spells are incredibly incredibly incredibly important, and the deck doesn't really function if you don't run enough. I personally like Ghastly Demise as a neat one that isn't the usual one, but overall imo you need ~8 counterspells/kill spells.

You're running a lot of cards that don't really do anything. Gisa and Geralf is a deck based around value imo, and running cards that are purely P/T lords limits the decks ability to function when you don't have your commander out. Along the same line, cards that just make tokens aren't great either (with an exception of Noosegraf Mob, that card is fantastic because it demands an answer all alone).

You're playing a lot of expensive cards, which usually means you can't cast them and do anything else on the same turn, but overall how you want to play the deck is definitely up to you, I've opted for a slimmer curve and try to win by just grinding the game out very consistently.

Some cards I love that you aren't running are Corpse Augur , Vindictive Lich , and Stronghold Assassin . Corpse Augur is just so many cards so consistently, Lich is just value value value, and can make people discard in their draw steps as well if you have a sac outlet. Stronghold Assassin is just such a powerful threat of activation, and it can sac itself to dodge exile as well.

I hope you enjoy the commander, here's my list if you want to see how i've built it: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/gisa-and-geralf-toolbox-combo/
