TheRheX on Got 99 Upvotes And A Bitch Ain't One - Marchesa

Hi Last_Laugh!

Can you give some insight on how these following cards perform in practice:

Drana, Liberator of Malakir:

Seems to only be useful when you attack a player that's not on the throne.

Also only applies the counter after damage has been dealt, so the attacking creatures would have to survive the combat damage phase.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel:

It seems awkward to not deal enough damage to take your opponents out of the game while simultaineously putting yourself on the throne. Would be interesting to know how this performs on its own and in comparison to Kokusho, the Evening Star.

The Ozolith:

This card looks like it is made for this deck, but the restricion to only be able to move the counters at the beginning of combat on our turn seems problematic.

Herald of Secret Streams:

Is this a "win-more" card or a crucial piece to win the game? I played it for a while and was never too impressed - maybe the strength of this card depends a lot on what kind of decks you are facing in your playgroup.

Spellskite:

To figure out whether this card can find a spot in my deck I checked the decks I face in my playgroup and found surprisingly little single target spells/abilities where this card would be useful.

Last One Standing:

It's a strong card but seems clunky to resolve when you have 3-4 opponents with something like 14 creatures and 23 tokens. Do you use an app that can roll an x-sided die where x=number of creatures in play?

Sadistic Hypnotist:

How much of a drawback is the sorcery speed in practice? I find it immensely useful to be able to sac at instant speed.

Phyrexian Reclamation:

How often do you activate this - is it really better than Reanimate?

I'd also like some feedback on cards that have performed really well for me, but did not make your list:

Blasphemous Act:

It's usually a bordwipe for - I regularly tutor for this card.

Deadly Rollick:

The unexpected removal of a key creature can really mess up your opponents turn / combo. It has been really solid for me and has been really annoying to play against.

Deflecting Swat:

I feel super save playing Marchesa, the Black Rose without any ability to put counters on her when I have this card in hand.

Even just your opponents knowing that you have this card in your decks gives you some savety because they try to play around it even when it's not in your hand.

Reef Worm:

The worm seems like a dull beater that needs a setup to perform, but this card never lets me down.

Give your creatures haste via cards like Urabrask the Hidden and your opponenty will quickly be facing an army of sea-creatures.

(For reference you can check out my list here: Marchesa, the Black Rose)

Judging form the comment section of other Marchesa lists on this site you seem to put a lot of thought and effort into this deck so I am looking forward on your feedback on this topic.

Have a nice day :)

You seem a bit low on sac outlets and board wipes.

Dimir House Guard:A good budget option that can also act as a limited tutor.

Goblin Bombardment: A classic.

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born: Sac outlet, aggro piece, and removal all in one.

Woe Strider: Comes with its own sac fodder.

Blasphemous Act: Probably the best board wipe in red.

Last One Standing: Cheap as 3 and a good chance you randomly select one of your creatures.

Not a bad start, I do have a few suggestions though. First, I'd work on lowering your avg. cmc to around 3.3. Second are actual card suggestions and I'll try to break it down by category. If nothing else, add Chaos Warp... it's Grixis' best answer to enchantments by FAR.

Draw: Grim Haruspex and Sage of Fables (also handy for etb/death trigger abuse and immediately protecting Marchesa).

Discard: Oona's Blackguard and Sadistic Hypnotist. This seals games.

Boardwipes: Last One Standing and Jokulhaups

Sac Outlets: Ashnod's Altar, Goblin Bombardment, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Carrion Feeder, and Viscera Seer.

ETB/Death triggers: Vindictive Lich, Flayer of the Hatebound (36 damage per round w/ 4 players), Zealous Conscripts and Sower of Temptation.

Random Goodness: Diabolic Intent (Demonic Tutor with upside here), Metallic Mimic (same as Sage of Fables, just more versatile),

General
-------------------------------
I know you have a ton of decks, but arcane signet and commanders sphere likely belong in every deck.

36 lands/4 mana rocks seems too high. General rule for me is 35 lands - 1 for every 2-3 mana rocks. This deck also has a low cmc and generates treasures so it seems like you are ~3 lands too high. I would start cutting the 5 color lands and if you bump your cmc up at all, consider adding signets for minimal ramp at the cost of a lands at a 1/3 ratio.

add
Castle Locthwain - low oppurtunity cost for high value. your deck is half black and this can get you back into a game where you run low on resources

remove
Yawgmoth is a heavy combo card, I dont see a combo for him, he would likely be better in anafenza where you can combo with persist creatures and bolster and all that. the proliferate is powerful, but checkout the options under infect.
Brazen Freebooter Captain Lannery Storm Corsair Captain Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer Prosperous Pirates Rapacious Dragon Sailor of Means - you already have enough draft chaff in the random infect creatures, revel in riches win is accomplished with a single board clear, or ~2 turns of attacking, they are not required for revel in riches.

If you wanna go revel in riches
-------------------------------
Phyrexian Tower - sac outlet and fast mana. see also Westvale Abbey  Flip
Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch/Anger - lets you attack after a board clear
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - this may be in another deck for flavor reasons, but basically makes all non humans immortal
Last One Standing - This basically a better damnation in rackdos. This should replace bontus last reckoning or just be an
additional board clear if you wanna go reanimator with mikaeus, hell even Nevinyrral's Disk is better than bontus
Phyrexian Scriptures ^ all those reasons, mild shoutout to Chain Reaction Blasphemous Act Spell Swindle/Storm the Vault  Flip/Brass's Bounty any of these will replace all of the draft chaff and free up some card slots
Curse of Opulence - ramps and duh
Hellkite Tyrant - likely in another deck, but consider it

If you wanna go infect
-------------------------------
Karn's Bastion - proliferate the counters and infect counters
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Filth - another way to get unblockable. Wonder/Levitation also make blocking hard
Tainted Strike - the best thing about this card, is the fact you can cast it on your opponents creatures. This also combos well with reach creatures like Judith, the Scourge Diva/Syr Konrad, the Grim allowing you to kill your opponents w/o attacking. Does not apply to Blood Artist because life lose does not deal infect damage.
Move Drana, Liberator of Malakir to the mainboard, shes too synergistic to leave behind
Warstorm Surge - deal infect damage without attacking Stalking Vengeance is a worse version
Sword of Truth and Justice - prolly the best sword for this deck.
Bident of Thassa//Coastal Piracy - unblockable means free cards
Open Into Wonder/Mogis's Marauder - moar unblockable
Guildmages' Forum - synergy land
planeswalkers go up a ton with proliferate, Chandra, Flamecaller is a board clear, filter and damage engine. you will pretty much be able to ult Dack Fayden the turn you cast him. Liliana, Dreadhorde General looks amazing in this deck. ulting Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for the win? just lul
Geode Golem - consider him if you think you need marchesa for the deck to work
Cyclonic Rift - likely in another deck, but another way to go unblockable River's Rebuke/Profaner of the Dead budget options
the vivid lands work with proliferate

Vigean Graftmage - may be better in your twiddle deck, but you can do a number of infinite combos with this card if you wanna go that direction. not very recommended with your current build

Well board wipes are gonna work great. Also free value will work great. So for board wipes as many as you can get and even dumb ones like Last One Standing just so you can stay low curve. And free value. Cards like Sunbird's Invocation, Lurking Predators, and Mind's Dilation. Stick to this route and you'll be fine

Necessities:

Chaos Warp - Grixis' best answer to enchantments by far. Don't let Rest in Peace, Solemnity, etc. wreck your day.

Spark Double - Copies Marchesa for double Dethrone and this copy enters with a counter immediately protecting itself.

Draw/Discard:

Sage of Fables - Card draw, immediately protects Marchesa, and it doubles as a combo piece with Ashnod's Altar and Flayer of the Hatebound.

Midnight Reaper - Grim Haruspex with life loss is a plus in Marchesa.

Oona's Blackguard - Opponent discard is amazing in Marchesa.

Sadistic Hypnotist - See above but on a free sac outlet.

Ramp:- Other than Obelisk (and Lantern if you need it) I'd drop your cost mana rocks. They don't ramp you into a drop commander whereas drop rocks will net you a turn 3 Marchesa.

Dimir Signet, Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Dominance are your best options on a budget.

Boardwipe:

Last One Standing is an excellent budget option for 3 mana.

Sac Outlets: Besides the ones I listed above.

Viscera Seer - Free sac outlet with scry.

Goblin Bombardment - 3/5 colors can't deal with enchantments very well.

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