I definitely understand hanging on to pet cards ( Head Games is one of mine). I've actually never run no-max-hand-size in my Chainer deck, but my meta isn't cutthroat and doesn't exhibit much 'yard exile (yet?) so I just use my normal discard most times to pitch something I want to reanimate. Otherwise it's almost draw-land-go. For frequent bits of lifegain I have several sources, but one I'd considered recently was Polluted Bonds .

If you're going to include an infinite mana piece to go with Rings , you might consider Deserted Temple to go with any of your ritual lands instead of Basalt Monolith (which could only be turned to by Bog Initiate ). It's not a budget card, but even without Rings it nearly doubles the ritual lands and allows double usages of some of your other utility lands.

Infinite mana may not be necessary in your deck with all the boosters and such — I've never needed infinite mana to loop Gary or Koko enough to kill the table whenever I've used them. I do have infinite mana capabilities in my current deck since it needs that much mana for some versions of its loops that aren't self-sustaining.

Edit: I don't think there are any other infinites with Rings currently in your deck, though infinite mana would enable some other infinite or just broken stuff.

DrukenReaps: Ooh, that looks like a deck i need to give a good look :) Very nice suggestions, some of them might get a home here. What are your experiences with the cards: Luminarch Ascension & Bloodchief Ascension ?

How much does Manabarbs punish you compared to your opponents?

Interesting thoughts about Polluted Bonds , i think i will add it, and then after some playtesting make my decision :)

Thank you so much for the feedback.

Wow, seems like you want to do a deck very similar to my own. I focused pretty hard on pillowfort and punishment. Please take a look at the deck itself, Divine Decree, but I'll list some of my all stars. Hope it helps.

Pillows- Ajani Steadfast , Glacial Chasm , Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , Luminarch Ascension , Solitary Confinement

Bleeders- Bloodchief Ascension , Manabarbs , Sorin Markov , Tainted Remedy

I don't think I suggested any you already have but my bad if I did. I will also say I played Zo-Zu the Punisher for awhile but found it highly underwhelming as a card in the 99 any time it came into the game after turn 6 or so and too aggressive if it came out early... I suspect Polluted Bonds will end up the same way unless you are up against landfall decks.

Hello Commander Forum

For a while i have been trying to build a political Queen Marchesa deck, but i have been cutting and adding cards forever never finding the 99 i want to run. So i was hoping you could help me of considerations of more cards, and maybe themes to cut.

These are sort of the themes i want in the deck, i have been adding some cards i want in the deck, but hopefully with help from the community i can finally make a version i like. Link

Best Regards Odysseus_97

My favorites are Lifegift and Druidic Satchel . Looking at your deck I'm unsure what would be the best option but the odds are in your favor to ramp or gain life with Druidic Satchel

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent fits so well into this theme, and has a lower CMC than a lot of the cards on this list, plus looks really fun to have go around the table. I hear she also makes a surprisingly good commander. I like her over the more expensive Crimson Honor Guard too. Furnace of Rath is functionally similar to Wound Reflection and cheaper to cast, just a thought.

Ankh of Mishra is incredibly punishing as well, I saw you have Polluted Bonds on the maybe list. Ankh is a lot less CMC and functionally does the same thing.

This deck seems rather cruel to your opponents but I guess that's the point of Rakdos ;) good luck!
