Looks great! Personally I would make these swaps:

xaarvaxus on Graveyard Shift

Some cards that I use in my Meren deck that I get a ton of mileage out of:

Birthing Pod - Not the cheapest but if you've only been playing for 1-2 months and you've already got Grave Pact, etc. it should be in reach. Great to tutor up/upgrade to the next creature of need while building up exp counters. Eldritch Evolution is a cheaper one shot of this.

Noxious Gearhulk - Removal and lifegain on a decent beater.

Sidisi, Undead Vizier - Again, not the cheapest but having a Demonic Tutor to keep bringing back... Rune-Scarred Demon can fit but I like having the additional sacrifice and cheaper CMC.

Doom Whisperer - Cheap flyer that can fill your graveyard with creatures to recur.

Kogarashi on How does bouncing a Day ...

Assuming we start with Day of the Dragons on the battlefield and Noxious Gearhulk in exile, this is what happens:

  • You activate Aminatou, the Fateshifter's -1, targeting Day of the Dragons. It resolves as one single object on the stack. This means it exiles Day, triggering Day's LTB, and then immediately returns Day, triggering Day's ETB. Neither trigger goes on the stack until the loyalty ability is done resolving.

  • Both abilities will go on the stack at the same time. Since you control both abilities, you get to order them however you choose. The LTB will return your Gearhulk, while the ETB will exile all creatures you control.

  • If you choose to have the LTB resolve first, you will sacrifice any Dragons you currently have, then the Gearhulk will return to the battlefield and its ETB will trigger, going on the top of the stack. That will resolve next, then the Day's ETB, which will exile your Gearhulk and create a dragon token. You will end with a Gearhulk in exile and a dragon token on the battlefield.

  • If you choose to have the ETB resolve first, you will exile any creatures you have (if your dragon tokens are still around), then create that many dragon tokens. Then the LTB will resolve, forcing you to sacrifice your Dragons (if any), the Gearhulk will return to the battlefield, and its ETB will trigger, going on the now-empty stack. You will end with a Gearhulk on the battlefield and no dragon tokens.

I'm unsure what will happen if i bounce a Day of the Dragons with, say, Aminatou, the Fateshifter's -1 ability. If i have a Day of the Dragons that has exiled a Noxious Gearhulk and then bounce it will all the triggers leave me with Gearhulk in exile or on the battlefield?

Gorbah on Betrayal at House Marchesa

Cheers usaDiabetic,

I added 2 lifegain creatures for the next match up and those are Wurmcoil Engine & Disciple of Bolas !

Next in line are Kokusho, the Evening Star & Gray Merchant of Asphodel & Noxious Gearhulk

Since your devotion to black is the highest here aswell with 38.75% + adding the ones i mentioned here it will even get close to 50% ( Gary triggers )

Bouncing these creatures in and out of the grave with Marchesa will be more than enough to keep our heads above water.

Gonna upload my Marchesa build later this evening ! Feel free to take a peak ;)

MutinyMate on rebuild Rebuild REBUILD

Dross Scorpion and Lightning Coils just look too fun not to include. I opted to omit the non-artifact value creatures because I am so into the current theme, I'm considering removing a Phyrexian Arena for a Skyscanner . My house meta is somewhere around 50%-75%-- I'm trying to avoid stuff like Noxious Gearhulk that would enable me to have removal on a stick and just use the freedom of long games to build insane value with Marchesa. Usually people just see tons of dice and decide not to fuck with it. lmao

If things get more degenerate, I'll definitely return to the bookmark of your and the other commenters deck to build in infinites and probably also include a Time Sieve .

Your build is interesting in that it adapts non-artifacts to the artifact theme. I think what I'm going for here is a bit more of the classic artifact archetype. Either way, this commander with modular is a blast, no? :D

In any case, scorpion and coils are extremely dope. Thank you again!

Seventy7INa45 on Affinity for EDH - Marchesa the Black Rose

3 months ago

LeoSushi - thanks for the input. I really like Treasure Keeper and Throne of Geth , they seem like a solid options. I looked at Marionette Master when I was putting it together but I didn't like the high CMC and BB in the mana cost. I ended up going with Noxious Gearhulk instead, but I can try out Marionette Master and see which I like better.

Carrion/Viscera/Bombardment are all good sac outlets, but don't really fit the flavor I am after with the deck. Same is true with the graft creatures. I'm positive they would be good additions to a normal Marchesa/counter build, but I want to keep it artifact/affinity flavored, even if the deck is a little worse for it.

Thanks again for the feedback, I appreciate the help :)

Slicor01 on Vilis, Broker of Blood

pidyon I use a bunch of ways to gain life with him. Creature-wise, we have Blood Artist , Crypt Ghast (who has extort so he's extra good in this deck), Cavalier of Night 's lifelink, Diamond Mare , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Kokusho, the Evening Star , and Noxious Gearhulk . For enchantments, I use Exquisite Blood , Palace Siege , and Polluted Bonds . When it comes to artifacts, Aetherflux Reservoir is obviously the best but I also use Basilisk Collar , Fountain of Renewal , Pristine Talisman , Trading Post , Venser's Journal , and Whip of Erebos . Finally, I use Exsanguinate which can act as a finisher while also gaining a ton of life. As win-cons go, I mainly just beat down with our oppressive creatures while our opponents can't do much about it. There's lots of cards that also make our opponents lose life when they do anything, so they also end up getting themselves into killing range. Finally, I'll kill them with commander damage sometimes or a massive Exsanguinate if the game goes long. Thanks for checking out my deck.
