Ghostly Prison Discussion
6 hours ago
If you are building the deck for a pillow fort only group like it says in the deck description, I don't know how well the tokens will do. Kinda shut down by Ghostly Prison and Crawlspace . Otherwise, the deck feels solid, maybe cut Sunforger for Wear / Tear ?

So I’ve started to make a Queen Marchesa deck mostly centered around pillow fort with stuff like Ghostly Prison and Koskun Falls as well as token build up with Assemble the Legion and Skyline Despot . I have yet to play test it and hope to give it a few games soonish, but I would like some insight on the deck and see what others think about it.

Yeah! It's not a very popular website and it deserves more attention. After some reflection, I completely agree with the Ghostly Prison and Fog , it's a gery good way to simulate the bridge. Well done!

Much appreciated feedback! I've never played the deck myself, but I have played against it. The core of the deck is very affordable at ~$75 or less. It's the pieces that keep the deck competitive that really kill any attempt at a competitive budget build. AKA
I know the builds before Whir of Invention was printed were mostly GB shells. I agree that having more fog effects could replace Ghostly Prison . It would help make room for that one of Ensnaring Bridge too.

Yeah, sucks and I forgot Ghostly Prison was a mini bridge. I totally overlooked that and I an therefore way more positive about playing abzan. Blue allows better countermagic, so you don't have to use Avoid Fate , wich is fine but... suboptimal. If you want to splash blue I found a great budget list on mtgbudget.com , a gold mine of cheap decks. It's a bit outdated, but it's still, Imo, a great start.
If I really want to be critical, I think that you either want Fog or the Ghostly Prison . Let's say they can attack with 3 creatures, but can only pay for 1, if you use your fog, the result would be the same as if you didn't play the prison. But I repeat, I didn't play that much Lantern control and never played the Abzan version, so please don't change your whole deck to what I said. These are just a noobs' questions.
Thanks so much for the list, it brings some fresh air to the deck!

Thanks for the input Meuhforever!
I've been trying to think of a way to get Whir of Invention into the mix. The almost requires the deck to be mono Blue. Which could be a better approach to the deck....
As for the one of Ensnaring Bridge . I am working that in regardless. Ghostly Prison is OK but if we get the lock in place, they will draw lands and therefore have the mana to swing in.

try to add more enchant land like those:
Abundant Growth / Consecrate Land / Elvish Guidance / Genju of the Cedars / Genju of the Falls / Genju of the Fields / Imprisoned in the Moon / Market Festival / New Horizons / Nylea's Presence / One with Nature / Sheltered Aerie / Squirrel Nest / Urban Burgeoning / Utopia Sprawl / Weirding Wood
This way, you will be able to untap them with the +2 effect of Estrid.
Also, you should add more card to draw
Then, you should add some recursion spells like
Also, you should add some cards to protect you like
Then, you could add some cards to take permanents from opponents like
