Feed the Swarm


Destroy target creature or enchantment an opponent controls. You lose life equal to that permanent's converted mana cost/mana value.

Love the suggestions, Profet93! Bolt Bend is in over Demon Bolt, Imp's Mischief is in over Feed the Swarm, Mystic Remora is in over An Offer You Can't Refuse, and Phyrexian Metamorph is in over Spark Double.

To the question you raised - games typically go well given the ramp and tutors that allow me to set up, cast other demons/useful enchantments, and ultimately expedite the summoning of Be'Lakor, the Dark Master triggering additional card draw. There have been a few instances where I've gone through a "creature drought", but that's pretty rare and is just how it shakes out every once in a while just like getting land flooded (or starved).

With respect to Yawgmoth's Will, I would like to slot it in but am unsure of what to take out. I'm hesitant to remove a creature but it might not be a bad idea given the power YW offers. Any final thoughts on this addition given the updated list?

Thank you again for all of the valuable suggestions, Profet93!

Syphon Mind - Draw 3, each opponent discards 1

Burnished Hart - Ramp. Fuels defile, blackblade reforged, etc...

Solemn Simulacrum - Unsure of price, but potentially a consideration.

Bubbling Muck - Super ramp

Dark Ritual - Ramp

Deliver Unto Evil - Recursion, especially important for artifacts which are hard to recur

Extinction Event - Sometimes things need to be gone, forever

Feed the Swarm - Few ways to remove enchantments

Hero's Downfall/Murderous Rider - Walker removal

Mutilate - Gets around indestructible too

Oubliette - Commander hate

Nevinyrral's Disk - Artifact + Enchantment removal

I'll give some good general-use options for several budget levels.

$20+ Thornbite Staff, Ashcoat of the Shadow Swarm

$10-$20 Contamination, Liliana of the Veil

$1-$10 Capital Punishment, Ratcatcher

Less than $1 Feed the Swarm, Fraying Omnipotence, Hex

Price of Progress and Blood Moon will hate on good mana bases (assuming the 36 basics is accurate and not just a lazy placeholder... I've been there lol). Blood Moon can definitely cause some saltiness though.

Archfiend of Depravity will screw go-wide creature strategies. Tainted AEther is another card that punishes creature strategies. Feed the Swarm and Chaos Warp are your only 2 answers to enchantments in these colors. Oubliette is another premium piece of removal (use on commanders for maximum effect).

Vicious Shadows, Emberwilde Captain, and Unquenchable Fury will hate on large hands. I'm not sure I like the Black Vice effects (or at least so many of them).

Exsanguinate would be a nice finisher here.

You are a bit light on creatures. Koskun Falls can be hard to find if you aren't shopping online but it does provide some defense.

Last One Standing and Blasphemous Act are a pair of good budget friendly boardwipes here.

Get Chaos Warp out of your maybeboard and into the deck. It along with Feed the Swarm and Canoptek Tomb Sentinel are your only answers to enchantments in these colors. I highly recommend all 3.

Unspeakable Symbol is worth its weight in gold here. Don't proactively put counters on everyone, just in response to removal as needed.

Uncivil Unrest is one of the grossest cards ever printed for Marchesa.

Danny Pink / Grim Haruspex are 2 of the best draw engines for this deck.

Anduril, Narsil Reforged is amazing here.

Feel free to check out my list for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa to Love Them

Unspeakable Symbol is worth its weight in gold here. Don't proactively put counters on stuff, just in response as needed.

Feed the Swarm is 1 of your only answers to problematic enchantments in these colors. Canoptek Tomb Sentinel is an option too but without consistent sac outlets it falls off fast.

Last One Standing / Blasphemous Act are 2 boardwipes I'd highly recommend here.

Patriarch's Bidding is always worth running in tribal decks.

Feed the Swarm and Chaos Warp are literally your only 2 realistic answers for enchantments in these colors.

Shared Animosity and Cover of Darkness are a couple other nice tribal cards here.
