Legion Loyalist

Creature — Goblin Soldier


Battalion — Whenever Legion Loyalist and at least two other creatures attack, creatures you control gain first strike and trample until end of turn and can't be blocked by tokens this turn.

I would add 4 Legion Loyalist because Goblin Piledriver and Goblin Rabblemaster don't have trample. Also if you are going to add Warren Instigator I'd add Goblin Lackey as well and add Muxus, Goblin Grandee I'm also not understanding why Spikeshot Elder is in here. Seems like alot of Mana for not much of a payout. Hope this helps

So one thing I'm noticing is you are getting a bit flooded at the 4 drop spot (18 cards). If you're still looking for cuts, I'd say look there.

That's been my biggest struggle with Marchesa lol. Keeping the # of amazing 4 drops for this deck in check is a nightmare since they compete with Marchesa at that cost. If you find you can't cut down at that slot, consider Fleshwrither to make it a toolbox of sorts.

Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa to Love Them is my deck if you feel like referencing it. There's a lot of comments to sift through for older ideas too (like Legion Loyalist, which was honestly pretty amazing here for a 1 drop).

Reconnaissance is such a great card in this deck, glad you're finally giving it a try. I see you already have Gruesome Realization in the 99. I recently had a game a couple of weekends ago where a friend played his Krenko, Mob Boss deck. I drew with a fairly removal heavy hand, one of the pieces being Gruesome Realization. I used it fairly early, and was able to kill off Krenko's 5 Goblin tokens it already managed to create.

If you're looking for more evasion and anti-token tech, I'd also recommend checking out Legion Loyalist and Goblin War Drums. Rakdos Charm can also be a pretty cheeky way to punish token strategies that outpace you on board establishment. I also recently subbed in Urabrask the Hidden as another Haste anthem and stax piece to slow down board rebuilds after board wipes. Kismet is another decent stax piece to hinder what your opponents are rolling out.

Slaughter the Strong is a board wipe that Isshin can dodge, and forces your opponents to slim down to only the most crucial stuff they can afford to keep.

Lastly, Soul Partition is pretty versatile as a removal piece that essentially adds another instance of Commander Tax to a removed opponents' commander, or can be a protection piece for one of your own things. I used it that same game to get rid of Krenko for essentially the rest of the game.

Madchase - I forgot to mention some things in my last comment since I was typing on mobile. About $100ish of the price of this deck is tied up in foils and alternate printings. Picking up the cheapest version of each card should knock off about $100-$150. I haven't built many new decks in the past year, and if I have, I usually do so by recycling pieces from old decks and am mostly buying singles and upgrades.

Additionally, I think the 1-10 power scale is challenging to effectively nail down; the running joke is that everyone's deck is a 7. I think it's most important to find out (the hard way) what kinds of match ups are bad for your deck, and tailoring your removal and interaction to help minimize some of those deficiencies. Beyond the match up meta-game stuff, ultimately what is most fun and interesting for you.

Isshin go-wide, and other creature intensive strategies can have a rough time against volleys of removal. A variety of protection effects will help minimize that. Aside from the graveyard deck challenges and attrition from heavy removal, this deck can be challenged by other token strategies that establish faster. This was a big reason I've leaned into the group slug and drain to get "around" other big boards, and also why I've included cards like Legion Loyalist and Gruesome Realization. I also pack as much enchantment and artifact removal to help deal with troublesome value pieces, and stax/pillow fort effects like Ghostly Prison, Crawlspace, etc.

The deck isn't going to shine in every game or match up, and that's fine. When it does shine it can be explosive and dynamic in a way that I find to be fun.

Once your deck list is ready, give me an idea of what your meta is generally like, and what avenues for Isshin interest you most so I can try my best to give some more tailored suggestions.

I think Tome of Legends would definitely be a solid addition. I haven't played with Robber of the Rich as much, but it's hard to overlook a creature with Reach, Haste, & steals resources.

In terms of other 1 & 2 drop creatures:

  • cut higher end CMC creatures.

If you have a lot of token strats in your meta, I'd recommend checking out Authority of the Consuls & Legion Loyalist. I think ETB damage effects will also be your best friend to help you get "around" those boards.

Nice deck (+1), Legion Loyalist and Rundvelt Hordemaster are definitely good inclusions. Have you considered cards in the 8-whack style decks such as Goblin Bushwhacker, Reckless Bushwhacker, and Battle Cry Goblin? Battle Hymn might be a decent substitute for Brightstone Ritual. Hope this helps.

Solid deck! You've got some attack triggers I haven't seen yet, or must have overlooked. I have a few suggestions if you're interested:

Happy brewing!
