king-saproling: ooooh, hadn't thought about Curiosity, I'll try that out. I'm also a fan of adding one of the clone effects because worst case I just get another kykar to make me more tokens. While the 1cmc enchantments are great with kykar, I don't really want to draw attention to her as a commander, because I don't want her to be the focus of the deck. Thanks for suggestions!

Oh yea, $-wise apparitions are better than solitudes for sure. I haven't playtested too much with Marchs, but being able to blink a Solitude (even without Ephemerates) is just so efficient. It's good to have another ETB payoff with all the blink in the deck.

As for not being able to be tutored, I am not saying to take out the apparitions, they're still great for a tutor in a pinch so I would leave them in.

My interpretation of going from to means we want to maximize Imperial Recruiter's use without leaving the deck less powerful if we never draw our recruiters (aka not having other good ETBs to pair with the blink). I also use Fervent Champion to take advantage of free sword equip or actually realistic kaldra equip but that's just me

This is a quality list. It has alot of the cards Comedlan has in his list buy also with a few wrinkles of its own.

My playgroup doesn't allow infinite combos (mana, creatures, draw, damage, mill, ect.)

If you wanted to remove the combo pieces what would you cut beyond Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Village Bell-Ringer, Zealous Conscripts, Moggcatcher, and maybe one of Recruiter of the Guard or Imperial Recruiter?

What would you add?

Cheaper artifact ramp can maybe go in place of more expensive artifact ramp. Grasp of Fate maybe replaces Oblivion Ring, since it's almost strictly an upgrade. Maybe replace Savage Beating or Sword of Light and Shadow. It's hard for me to make the call on what are/stronger weaker cards in this deck since I've never played her as a commander.

To make your job harder, here are more cards: Hero of Bladehold (similar to Hanweir Garrison  Meld, maybe better, but also higher cmc), and also Adriana, Captain of the Guard and Recruiter of the Guard (similar to Imperial Recruiter).

Good luck. Just gotta see what works and what doesn't, or what works better.

Oh, and just a word from the wise because I played this wrong for quite awhile. Marchesa's recursion are all seperate triggers and you choose what order they come back in. I'll use Vigean Graftmage and Imperial Recruiter as my example. Every turn you can sac these 2 creatures and have Vigean enter first followed by Recruiter so you can graft a counter onto Recruiter and both are ready to sac again (this is 8 free draws per round w/ 4 players with Grim Haruspex out). This makes etb/death triggers extremely abuseable with automatic +1+1 counters.

That's fair with Sylvan Library. I run all 9 of the fetches I can along with a few tutors. I shuffle a LOT and this helps me with Sylvan being more selective card draw and digging without being as aggressive by taking 8 just to switch up the topdeck.

I've had pretty good results out of Jared and the monarch mechanic in general. It sucks that you can't become the monarch the turn he enters but once you have it the very next turn, it's easy to hold onto here. He also makes for one hell of a blocker/deterrent for surprise hastey creatures.

I'm with you on Toski/Ohran being my main tutor targets though. I run Imperial Recruiter alongside them for another easy way to Tutor either (or Loyal Apprentice) as well.

Also, have you considered running Kataki, War's Wage? You don't run many artifacts and he's great at taxing and slowing down your opponents.
