Marchesa, the Black Rose is definitely your best bet for theft. She turns any temporary theft effect (i.e. Act of Treason ) into permanent theft with a sac outlet thanks to her wording. You can also abuse cards like Aura Thief to steal enchantments or Zealous Conscripts to steal creatures, ult walkers, etc.

Some of the most popular theft commanders are Sen Triplets , Merieke Ri Berit , Rubinia Soulsinger , Empress Galina , Yasova Dragonclaw , Brion Stoutarm , and Marchesa, the Black Rose . I would say that Marchesa is the strongest one, but if you want to do them all, a good option is Sisay, Weatherlight Captain . She can tutor them all out.

Sultai_Sir on BOROS IS ACTUALLY GOOD??? (NOT …

Well, from what I've been brewing, Hofri is insane. He's like Marchesa, the Black Rose because he can steal your creatures, kill them, and than make a copy of them while also removing them, and he also supports combos and a general sacrifice theme like a boss. He's sort of like Muldrotha, the Gravetide in that he's hard to get set up, but once he's there, you win. But I do see what you mean with Radiant Scrollwielder and Reconstruct History. They're definitely dead to graveyard hate, and I'm not saying Boros is as good as Simic or Izzet anytime soon. It's still the worst color pair in Commander. It's just a lot better then in previous sets.

Thought you'd appreciate the true singleton format for this one. As for why Vorinclex, well it seems like Spike and Timmy have helped you figure that out ;)

Urza's Ruinous Blast and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth : Originally these were contestants, but this started out as a Party Matters deck (Wizard, Cleric, Warrior, Rogues) but I ended up not having enough of a balance of those types to warrant focusing heavily on the mechanic.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : The point of the deck is to not cast the legendary spells. Also, she has her own deck.

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage : This is one that was cut after deciding I had too many Wizards when I was still looking at Party Matters. Might warrant revisiting.

Kamahl's Druidic Vow : The primary reason this isn't in the deck is I don't have it. Otherwise I dunno what I'd cut.

Marchesa, the Black Rose and Shalai, Voice of Plenty : Damn that's a good combo. I'll need to source a Marchesa, but I have a Shalai coming in the Secret Lair drop. WHAT TO CUT?!

Day of Destiny : Don't has. Would be glorious w/ Arvad the Cursed .

Anafenza, the Foremost : Similarly, don't has. Will have to source as it's glorious.

Blackblade Reforged : Too many other good options to include this, unfortunately.

Heroes' Podium : I really like this one. Didn't know it existed. Will have to source.

Farseek : No idea what to cut. Also probably didn't find it when going through cards and was giving priority to LEGENDS

Thran Temporal Gateway : I've no excuse as to why this ain't in except that I wanted to use Sisay to cheat, not anything else. Which isn't a good excuse but it is mine.

Fblthp, the Lost : Wow yeah I do need one of these.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : Wouldn't go in here anyway. She'd go into Mono-White. And I'm not gonna get my hopes up on getting more than one.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope : If I had an extra, lol. She's basically an auto-include in any white deck.

Sigarda, Host of Herons : See above.

Eerie Ultimatum : Another card that...I wish I had.

Ruinous Ultimatum : Ehh,, I feel like one ultimatum is a bit much for the deck and I'd rather Eerie.

Weatherlight : Valid point. Now, ugh gotta figure out how to fit it in.

Legacy Weapon : Bad Vorthos. Bad.

Rhystic Study : Bad Spike. Bad

Curiosity : ...bad Johnny, bad.

Yes. Once a permanent leaves the battlefield, it will cease to be recognized as the same object.

This is the basis for such decks as Marchesa, the Black Rose : steal a thing, cover it in counters, and take it forever

i have seen some nasty Sisay, Weatherlight Captain super friends decks that utilize combos like Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Oath of Teferi to loop lands and plans walkers like Chandra, Awakened Inferno

but i love what your doing only card i would suggest is Cauldron of Souls as a backup,protect, or stand in for Marchesa, the Black Rose

People have always strived for something bigger. Something bigger. Some Johnnies of the world never wanted their Arcum Dagsson to be just one color, the resident Timmies always thirsted for an Omnath, Locus of Rage that wasn't confined to just Gruul. Or at least, I did. This strategy of having a bunch of tutors used to be very shaky, because half your deck would be recursion, tutors, and reanimation to keep your pseudo-general alive. Luckily, with the printing of Sisay, Weatherlight Captain, you have a legendary tutor in the command zone, and now, you only have to dedicate about 5 slots to finding your commander. The rest is up to you!

Personally, the commander I've wanted to try this on has been the face of Grixis Herself, Marchesa, the Black Rose (sorry, Lord of Tresserhorn). You get a ridiculous amount by adding Selesnya. You get enter the battlefield and death triggers like no other: Guardian Project, Stonehorn Dignitary, and my personal favorite, Gutter Grime. You get amazing ramp, like Sakura-Tribe Elder and Viridian Emissary, and the best sac outlet in the game, Fanatical Devotion.

But there's one thing I haven't talked about: Rhythm of the Wild and friends (Grumgully, the Generous, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Good-Fortune Unicorn, etc) . These cards are broken, leading to pseudo-infinites, locking your opponents out of their combat steps forever, invincible boardstates, hundreds of tokens per turn cycle, etc. So, what do you think? Do you have any commanders that could use this treatment? Any suggestions for cards for this deck? Well, thanks for sitting through this ramble, and as always, Happy Tapping!

Last_Laugh on Who gets control?

Correct. The entire premise of Marchesa, the Black Rose theft decks is to steal until eot, attack with it so it gets a +1+1 counter, then sac it before eot so it comes back at eot and it's permanently yours.
