Marchesa, the Black Rose

Marchesa, the Black Rose

Legendary Creature — Human Wizard

Dethrone *(Whenever this creature attacks the player with the most life or tied for most life, put a +1/+1 counter on it.) *

Other creatures you control have dethrone.

Whenever a creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it dies, return that card to the battlefield under your control at the beginning of the next end step.

Marchesa, the Black Rose Discussion

NTakamura on Help with undying midrange deck

2 weeks ago

I would like your advice on this deck. This deck uses Marchesa, the Black Rose to make sure my creatures are hard to kill. I compliment this with a lot of +1/+1 counters and creatures with the undying mechanic. My goal for this deck is win by attacking with creatures. I do feel the +1/+1 section can use some help. So how can I improve that area and other parts of my deck to make it a high level casual deck?

The Undying

theindigoeffect on Are there any other cards …

I have a Marchesa, the Black Rose deck, and being able to cast Open Into Wonder, subsequently put counters on my creatures, and draw cards is perfect for my deck. Are there any other cards that can imitate that effect? I know Bident of Thassa functions similarly, but I don't have enough fliers to make use of a card like that.

D2Vincent on Changing Commanders

For the longest time, I had Thraximundar as the commander of The Phyrexian Undead until I eventually decided to switch him with Marchesa, the Black Rose who was already in the 99. Now I can actually play and even recur ol' Thrax since he isn't constrained to the Command Zone, and the rest of the deck runs much better with Marchesa than it ever did with Thraximundar.

Originally, the deck was strictly about proliferating whatever I happened to have on the board, then I went almost the complete opposite going SUPER Heavy into Zombie-Tribal, then I decided that wasn't what I wanted to do since it didn't synergize well with my Proliferate shenanigans. About that time was when I made my commander change, and since then it's become more focused on Fling effects attached to my creatures, like Dreadhorde Butcher , Stalking Vengeance , etc.

Quickspell on What to Do with Treachery?

Hi guys, I have a copy of Treachery and I'm wondering what best to do with it.

  1. There seems to be a combo with Words of Wind but I don't quite understand how it works. I use Treachery to gain control of a creature, untap my lands and then use one of those the next time I would draw a card to return it to my hand? Is that it?

  2. What would be a good EDH deck for it? EDHRec has some suggestions of which Brago, King Eternal seems the best to me. But I suppose Marchesa, the Black Rose would also make good use of it, thought it's not even on EDHRec's list. So what other good commanders would you suggest for this card?

I built a Marchesa, the Black Rose deck based around Amass and changelings (best way to get counters on things in RUB imo) but I haven't played around with it and populate.

Also--in the future, this sort of thing is best posted in the "Rules Q&A" at the top of the page (or in the drop-down list from the three lines on mobile). Thanks!

Marchesa, the Black Rose is a blast to play. It's also a commander that's easy to have a sideboard of about 15-20 cards to swap to adjust the power level or just mix it up to keep things fresh. You can go theft, etb/death trigger abuse, aggro, modular artifacts, tribal (typically zombies or wizards) or a combination of some/all of these.

Last_Laugh on copy amd theft cpmmander ideas

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.
