Fuzzlewuzzle thanks for the responses!

In looking back through your changes, Warstorm Surge eventually came back into the build. Did you feel like you needed it in order to get a faster win-con or more spot removal? At a 6 CMC that's a turn you wouldn't get to play any dragons.

What's kept Grave Upheaval in this build? High CMC, single target feels counter to a lot of what you've talked about wanting to do in the primer. Have you had instances where the haste was needed? For that total 6 CMC you could cast Patriarch's Bidding or Twilight's Call to be more impactful. Along that line, was Hammer of Purphoros ever a consideration?

Have you ever thought about Olivia, Mobilized for War as a tech in here?

  • 3 CMC means it hits the board reasonably quickly
  • Haste enabler when your dragons come into play, if they don't already have it
  • Can help fill the yard with dragons in hand if you don't have a discard outlet
  • Assuming you could resolve its ability before Surge and Tempest, it upticks the damage that either enchantment would do

I assume Wurmcoil and Everlasting Torment are local meta counters, but I might look to swap in for one of those.

This is FearDReaper from MTG Salvation. You asked me for my thoughts:

Dack's Duplicate never really preformed all that well for me. Imo clone effects are overrated. Phantasmal Image and Phyrexian Metamorph are also kinda meh in my experience. These guys were so much better before they changed the legend rule.

I haven't played my list in a while but if I reforged it I would definitely be trying Greven, Predator Captain. He seems to fit the deck like a glove and brings some phenominal card draw to the table.

Are you comboing with Murderous Redcap? If not I don't think he's a great include. In its place I would run Ravenous Chupacabra. If you are comboing with redcap, id still try to find a place for Chuppy. He's just sooo good

A few more cards I would add are: Herald of Secret Streams, Captivating Crew, Syr Konrad, the Grim, and Olivia, Mobilized for War (I see you have her in your maybe board but in my experience she is really good)

Lastly, idk how casual/competitive your playgroup is but if you wanna be really mean you can play Jokulhaups. I wouldn't recommend it if your group is more casual though as they will absolutely hate you lol.

Feel free to pick my brain more. Preferably on this site

Wassup LordWaterbird, +1!

@Your post

I built a bad Black Rose Budget Deck and a Black Rose EDH Index of anything I found that might fit.

Something that has always helped me is adding custom tags to count draw and ramp, like so:

1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician #Draw #Sacrifice #Removal

If you really want to cap Marchesa's power level at 7/8 I think you'd have to gut many of the fun cards and play a really consistent, conservative midrange style with lots of interaction or MLD to really be an 8.

That'd be pretty spikey, but here are a few alternative (6-7/10) ideas:

Don't skimp on mana! 5 Ramp and 36 Lands is low. I'd go up to 37 lands and 10 ramp at least, prioritizing 2 drop ramp... eg. Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Indulgence , Fellwar Stone , etc.

Lean into aggro/midrange... BBB, BB, UU, etc, are really going to slow you down. I would only run cards with those costs that can compare to Necropotence , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , etc. Eg. Grave Pact is good, but Plaguecrafter does more (...also Merciless Executioner / Fleshbag Marauder ). If you're trying to wipe the board, I'd go for Massacre Girl / Profaner of the Dead , etc.

Vigean Graftmage ... really good with a Sac outlet. Olivia, Mobilized for War is similar if you have good draw.

Fire Covenant ... awesome card. Dethrone is tricky and so you need to be able to consistently manipulate life.

Thalakos Deceiver and Zealous Conscripts .... Stealing cards is a lot of fun.

Flayer of the Hatebound ... this card is MVP in Marchesa. Add this.

Hey DarrockHawk, good start to this deck!

If you want to play this deck in modern, you'll have to cut the Swords to Plowshares since that card isn't modern legal. You're also running a much higher amount of removal than normal for an aggressive creature deck like this - hell, most control decks don't even run this much removal! Right now you're running 14 removal spells - a good spot of an aggresive creature deck is 6-8. I would go down to 4x Path to Exile, 2x Go for the Throat, and 1-2 Anguished Unmaking. The Extirpates are also an interesting choice - do you usually/always play against graveyard combo decks? If not, I'd move those to the sideboard (if you're going to play them at all).

As for what to add, Vicious Conquistador , Kalastria Highborn , Bloodghast , Gatekeeper of Malakir , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , and Captivating Vampire are some powerful vampire cards that you're missing. If you wanted to throw red into the deck, it opens up Stromkirk Captain , Olivia, Mobilized for War , and Olivia Voldaren as well as things like Lightning Bolt , Terminate , and Bedevil .

I can give more specific suggestions if you're interested, but in the meantime I think you should play around with it to see what you like! Whatever you decide to do, have fun with it!

Well let's see, if you want some good vampires I've found that Markov Dreadknight and Stromkirk Condemned are amazing, especially the latter because it fits your theme. Vampire Hounds can swing for big damage consistently, and offers instant speed discard. Skyshroud Vampire is also an evasive version of Vampire Hounds . Finally, and I'm honestly surprised you don't have her in here, Olivia, Mobilized for War is stunningly good because discard, counters for marchesa, and non-vampires you're running become vampires.

Knight of the White Orchid is neat.

There is a vampires theme option for this kind of list- Bloodcrazed Paladin , Forerunner of the Legion , Legion Lieutenant , Olivia, Mobilized for War , Paladin of Atonement etc. This is neat in that it lets you run a lot of lord effects, even if there is a little awkwardness in the non-vampire slots.
