DrkNinja, while I do reeaaalllyy agree with your card suggestions, I should have stated first that this is a budget deck. Hahahahaha. Sorry.

I just started magic a few weeks ago, and I have inherited from my brother his Trostani EDH deck, and as long as I keep to myself for the first few turns and stay alive, I automatically win, with huge creatures all over the field hitting 2-3 people in one turn and dealing lethal to them. But I wanna change that for a bit and try to create a deck of my own playstyle.

I agree that most of my cards don't really have much worth come mid or late game, but I find it fun trying to keep others from winning. I also checked your deck and I found really good stuff to consider bringing over here to mine.

Cards I'm considering:

Pillow Forts:

Counterspells:

Exile cards:

Enchantments:

Others:

*Cards I have in extra

Though some of your suggestions such as Curse of Opulence and Curse of Bloodletting are really good, I don't think it's legal for me to put it in an esper themed deck. Also, Curse of Shallow Graves doesn't really do much for me, I'd rather put in Curse of Disturbance , as I also get a zombie whenever that player is attacked. I know that it's weird, but I would try to minimize each opponent's gains from my enchantments too much. Incentivizing them to attack another player is good, but them getting 2/2 zombies who can hit me too, would be real bad.

Vedalken Orrery is reaallyyy good for this deck but it's priced up way too high for me. This is the first time I've heard of Forcefield , and no. I wouldn't be able to afford it, and if I could, I definitely wouldn't be downgrading everything else in this deck. Ahahahahahaha

Any suggestions as to which cards I could do without?

First let me start by saying that if your goal is to win, I think you are missing value... You have 8 cards that require voting and 3 cards that affect your ability to change votes... I think that of those only 4 or 5 cards are worth their weight. I like the concept of the deck, I even built a version of politics matters deck called Politically Motivated. which is themed after House of Cards but it's in Mardu colors. I think you'd be better off cutting the cards that affect the voting outcome and play some pillow fort. Ghostly Prison , Propaganda , Collective Restraint , Glacial Chasm , and Sphere of Safety are all great cards for that purpose. I also think you should play a bit more counter magic, stuff like Arcane Denial so that you tell them no and give them a slap on the ass at the same time! Honestly some spells will resolve and destroy your boardstate so it's worth playing a few. I also think that Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , and Anguished Unmaking are pretty relevant to deal with cards that are indestructible.

Also here are some fun political cards I used that you may like.

Also Humility + Forcefield is a great combo for pillow fort I forgot about... and Humility is far better than Overwhelming Splendor.

Lastly Greater Auramancy isn't political but... most of your political tools are enchantments so... you could also add Enchanted Evening for shits and giggles.

Thanks for the suggestions Quicksilver!

Thalia will most likely be making an appearance in v2 of this deck. I've playtested it several times and there's more misses than hits. When it works it really works. The problem I'm facing is the continuous life loss and being hated out of a game because of the stax cards, mainly Humility .

I'm planning on putting in more pillow fort cards like Forcefield instead of stax. Either way, I need at least a little more life gain and more consistency. I need to hit up another GP and trade up for a Cruel Tutor , Grim Tutor , and Imperial Seal .

If anyone else wants to throw some suggestions and ideas at me, please do!

Thanks for the comment Patolea. It is inspiring to hear that Marchesa is an international phenomena.

As for the Forcefield, I am not sure I run it because it is great, or because it is a rare and super fun card, and I have one. It can be replaced without much loss of function.

Thanks for your comment:)

I will look into Gitaxian Probe for stoping that annoying Black Lotus+Forcefield combo.

Blacker Lotus literally tears up the competition so when I boost my budget I will add it for sure!!

Mox Lotus has amazing synergy with Mishra's Bauble so it might get included when that fated paycheck rolls around:)

I feel like a more consistent Scornful Egotist will allow this deck to get to the next level, think Gitaxian Probe over Island, you only need 80 islands to consistently get that quick Crow.

Also, Gitaxian Probe allows you to see your opponents hands, so you know that they don't have the Black Lotus+Forcefield combo in hand and you can go full steam with Scornful Egotist.

Also, I know you are on a low $35692 budget, but Blacker Lotus and Mox Lotus are upgrades for when you get your next paycheck, feel me?

Wonderful deck - precociousapprentice thank you for putting in the time and effort into putting it all together and including such a detailed write-up.

I made a very similar version based on yours and have been playing it for a few months now.

A highlight was going 1v1 with a highly tuned Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck that was worth a small fortune. He played 4 or 5 permanents on turn one! It looked like he was going to run away with the game, but I hit him with Virtus the Veiled + Suspicious Bookcase. It still looked like he was going to run away with the game until I slowed him down with Kambal, Consul of Allocation. It still looked like he was one draw away from victory until I played Solemnity and Dark Depths and took the victory. My hands were sweaty at the end. We even drew a crowd of onlookers anxious to see who would win.

My advice for others interested in building this: Righteous Aura is a great budget substitute for Forcefield, imo. This has been mentioned before, but is buried in these comments. I've also gotten a lot of mileage out of Whispersilk Cloak, both for the shroud and unblockable.
