Helm of Obedience should be in here. It's a wincon combo with Rest in Peace and Lavinia

Hey man! I got a few suggestions. Feel free to ignore any/all of them:

  1. I kinda agree with PhaylogenX: Valiant Knight seems pretty good here (I see you've included it). Another pair of cards to consider for this type of role are Knight Exemplar and Kinsbaile Cavalier . They're like... good.

  2. I think Wear / Tear is likely better than your Crush Contraband . It costs less to cast if you're only targeting one or the other, and it still costs less than Crush Contraband if you're using both halves. However, it IS destroy rather than exile; this is frequently not an issue, but if it is a meta call please do ignore me.

  3. Since you're in black, you have access to the best tutors. Unfortunately, many of them are expensive: Things like Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor and Imperial Seal are gonna set you back a lot. Consider running things like Dark Petition , Diabolic Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition are all good cards.

  4. Your rocks could use some work. I like the signets, but I like the talismans more. Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction and Talisman of Indulgence are all better than their respective signets.

  5. You may want to consider some of the death and taxes staples. Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes are good ways to protect 'ya bois. Rest in Peace can hose a lot of decks, especially the ones I play. More generally, Stax and Hatebears can blow chunks on OPs. Winter Orb can slow down opponents from responding to your on-board pressure; Trinisphere is similar but expensive. Price of Glory can disincentivize counter-magic; Aura of Silence taxes one-sidedly in your favor.

  6. You're running a lot of basic lands. Consider Blood Moon and/or Magus of the Moon to punish more expensive decks.

  7. I think Cataclysm is probably better than Tragic Arrogance .

Right. That's all I got. Good luck!

Ok, first get Chaos Warp in here. It's your only real answer in Grixis for problematic enchantments like Rest in Peace and Solemnity . Consider everything after this to be good advice but optional unlike that first suggestion which really is a must.

Glen Elendra Archmage , Vindictive Lich , and Spark Double would all like a word. Especially Spark Double... copy Marchesa for double dethrone and they protect one another, it's gross!

Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Creativity are all excellent here.

A few more boardwipes couldn't hurt either. Consider Last One Standing and Jokulhaups .

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not tribal but it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

BMHKain on cEDH Boros is rewritten as a Vengeful Martyr

1 week ago

Within 2 Months, we have an update:

We got stuff added, but some still include Anti-ETB, & now Anti-Death Triggers from Hushbringer . Also, we got a new "Rule of Law"-like card called Deafening Silence might even be a big treat on its own. So I ask:

  1. How to make the deck Asymmetrical in regards to Torpor Orb / Hushbringer effects?

  2. How to allow Death Triggers while being Asymmetrical about Rest in Peace & Grafdigger's Cage / Ashes of the Abhorrent /Other?

  3. Is there such a thing as a Good Boros-Friendly Sorcery in cEDH? Is so, what? I'm stunned I only have 5 in general...

  4. Sometimes Stax shouldn't be the only strategy here; hell I still have failed to make my own Breakfast-Hulk (Or similar...) combo for Boros. I already have several ideas for combos for otherwise. Any other ideas?

  5. Is anyone here cEDH-centric, but supports Boros even if they don't have the "Same" thing as any other colors?

6/FINAL: How can I even make Eldrazi Displacer Viable as an ETB Engine anymore?

I hope this helps. I'm SO far away from 100 cards it is MURDER. Thanks if anyone wants to help... :D

Caerwyn on Theros: Beyond Death (Rumors/Speculations)

1 week ago

I think it is a foregone conclusion that we will see Elspeth in this next set, but I think we should be prepared for a rather depressing reunion. Greco-Roman mythology is full of journeys to the underworld; journeys that are never particularly happy for either those consigned there or the mortals who venture into Hades' depths. The accounts tend to either end with a failure to rescue the person doomed to the Underworld (Orpheus' fails to rescue his wife; Persephone is still bound to the Underworld for much of the year); or with our heroes learning depressing truths about those they care greatly for (Odysseus learns of Agamemnon's death and the drudgery of the Underworld; Aeneas learns his ex-lover, Queen Dido of Carthage, has killed herself as a result of his actions).

Based on the source material for the plane, it stands to reason that, if Elspeth does survive the journey out of the Underworld, she will not be the same person she was going in. I would be rather surprised if she retains her mono-White identity when we see her next.

I am also a bit curious if Kytheon shall make an appearance. When last we saw our incredibly dull Lawful Good friend, he was happily being welcomed into what appears to be Magic's version of Elysium . If Beyond Death follows Greco-Roman legends, our heroes would be able to go through the Underworld to reach what is presumably Gideon's new abode. Personally, I hope they allow the poor guy to Rest in Peace - it would devalue his character's sacrifice to bring him back so shortly after his death.

BMHKain on Help wanted for Sevinne Mass ...

2 weeks ago

Update at Late.

After a forum post was highlighted, I'm trying every option in the book to conform to those rules & so on. Ironically, my Gob Tribal Deck now seems on the way to actually getting done. Sevinne, the Chronoclasm cannot be said the same way. I actually wanted to find someone to Compile a whole List of Mass Burn Wraths; so I know what to use.

Ral, Storm Conduit is cut. I'll be dealing more Burn than Ral can zap even w/ outside support.

I haven't made my decision on War's Toll yet; Burning Earth & Manabarbs work damn well here, but is there a card that taps all that land as if it were for mana, or does War's Toll do just that?

I'm trying to find other Flashback Cards; but what to suggest for cuts? Is Catalyst Stone not as worthy as I thought? What are your thoughts on this?

Is there anyway to, say, bounce something, & force an opponent to discard it? This might be a good Strategem against Exile Strategems.

Finally, Regarding EDHREC's recommendations, what misc. cards would do good w/ Sevinne, the Chronoclasm ?

I actually apologize yet again. I just wanted some thoughts on Take 2 of my Deck Help threads. After I get some kind of input from enpc (Yes, I'm just as sick as the next person. Fear not.) on a more optimistic scale, I'll shape up there.

I really am trying all I can to Shape Up; enpc. Oh, & I'll resume finding Playtest worthy Non-cEDH decks soon enough. I'll talk later. I at least have something against Rest in Peace , & others...

& yes, I'll shape up on the comment size in the meanwhile; I even know this is a large comment. I'll save it for now though. Hope this helps; I'd like your thoughts. Thanks in advance. :)

I've tested it against other competitive decks. It does amazing about 75% of the time. It looks like it can beat control almost all of the time, but its games are really close. Maybe have a few basic lands in your sideboard so you'll be able to take advantage of cards like Path to Exile, which show up in most control decks. It works great against slower decks like Tron and Titanshift, but it there are certain archetypes that commonly defeat it. It wasn't able to defeat any of the infect decks we tested it against, for example. Maybe two or three Melira, Sylvok Outcast s in the sideboard could help? There also isn't much by way of graveyard hate, which is why it lost to three of the four dredge decks we tested it against. Maybe two Rest in Peace s could help here. It's really 50/50 with other burn decks, maybe it loses ever-so-slightly more than it wins. Still, it's a really great deck!

Azeworai on Chulane, Teller of Tales

I'd recommend the addition of Fleetfoot Panther , Kor Skyfisher , Ephara, God of the Polis , Whitemane Lion , and/or Stonecloaker . Glimpse of Nature is banned. Glowrider is a cheaper Thorn of Amethyst for budget and drawing cards. Land-based ramp tends to be more defended against removal such as Vandalblast and Austere Command , so Kodama's Reach and Cultivate would be a worthy inclusion. Chulane himself is a massive target on board, so Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage are worthy backups. Rest in Peace could be replaced with Remorseful Cleric , but that's personal preference.
