Last_Laugh on Wizgines

Ok, first get Chaos Warp in here. It's your only real answer in Grixis for problematic enchantments like Rest in Peace and Solemnity . Consider everything after this to be good advice but optional unlike that first suggestion which really is a must.

Glen Elendra Archmage , Vindictive Lich , and Spark Double would all like a word. Especially Spark Double... copy Marchesa for double dethrone and they protect one another, it's gross!

Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Creativity are all excellent here.

A few more boardwipes couldn't hurt either. Consider Last One Standing and Jokulhaups .

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not tribal but it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

Sage of Fables and Metallic Mimic to immediately protect Marchesa or abuse etb/death triggers on every player's turn instead of once per round (i.e. Kokusho the table 4 times per round w/ 4 players).

I'd run the other 2 Talismans over Signets and City of Brass , Shivan Reef , and the rest of the painlands. Last One Standing and Jokulhaups are excellent boardwipes here. Vindictive Lich , Sadistic Hypnotist , and Oona's Blackguard are all amazing at putting your opponents into topdeck mode.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Less theft, more aggro, and more etb/death abuse. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

Leodragon67890 Just got it today and played a game with a few other people - it's pretty awesome! Won a game by board-wiping with Last One Standing and then using Command the Dreadhorde to take everything and swing over the next few turns. Second game was a little rougher, everyone kept wiping the board and commander tax got way too high on Chainer, Nightmare Adept but I needed him so I kept casting him. Deck definitely gets weaker the more he's removed, but he's not a huge threat on his own so I feel like most people overlook him. Deck could probably use a bit of protection for him, though.

Thanks for the suggestions. Metallic Mimic has been sitting in my awful wizards deck for months now, I never thought of it going in here, but it really helps. Especially with the majority of the creature cards being wizards, same goes for Vindictive Lich , so thank you!

Now that I think about it, Yahenni, Undying Partisan really is a cheaper, and to some extent, better version of Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , so that definitely got put in. I would be hesitant to put in Falkenrath Aristocrat due to my CMC being quite high already (I know Razaketh, the Foulblooded has a high CMC, but he tutors and I cracked him while opening a pack so I feel obligated to use him! Shhhh!) And I would love to put Yawgmoth, Thran Physician but for now I'll leave him out, though I will probably always contemplate it!

Both Midnight Reaper and Grim Haruspex work better than River Kelpie for death/ETB based draw.

I feel like if I run Jokulhaups my playgroup will disown me. At some point Last One Standing will probably replace Killing Wave .

Thanks again for the suggestions, I really appreciate the feedback, and I definitely up-voted your Marchesa deck!

Metallic Mimic and Sage of Fables - A: They make Marchesa enter with a counter so she's immediately protected and B: You can abuse ETB/Death triggers every turn instead of once per round (i.e. Vindictive Lich or Gray Merchant over and over)

Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Falkenrath Aristocrat are both great free sac outlets here that can protect themselves and have haste so they get a +1+1 counter the turn they enter. Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is another amazing sac outlet here assuming he's in your budget.

Midnight Reaper and Grim Haruspex are amazing draw engines in Marchesa.

Last One Standing and Jokulhaups are both really good boardwipes here as well.

zerowner, Bontu's Last Reckoning is a great board wipe early game, and cascade is there for benefit when i need to gain field advantage, but not really the center of the deck, the idea is to keep tapping and untapping creatures for abilities to activate, also i have my creatures able to tap for mana along with some artifacts, and if i tap artifacts or creatures to play a card and then cascade into it it wouldnt be an issue, neither would playing it from hand, Last One Standing is a gample in an edh game because you can give one person advantage and that one person may not be you

Trinket Mage can grab you several good artifacts in your deck, maybe that?

Bontu's Last Reckoning is pretty bad in EDH imo, especially when you might accidentally cascade into it. Maybe Last One Standing instead?
