Icaruskid on Queen Marchesa Enchantments

I like this deck!

Solemnity pairs well with Delaying Shield. And Fighter Class is outstanding with Sunforger.

Replenish and Moon-Blessed Cleric fit in nicely with enchant builds like this too.

Long may she reign!

Icaruskid on Hail to the Queen, Baby

5 days ago

Fun deck! I like the enchantment theme and it makes perfect sense.

Moon-Blessed Cleric and Replenish might be handy here.

Solemnity pairs well with Delaying Shield too.

Court of Ambition and Court of Grace are enchantments that trigger monarch as well.

Long may she reign!

With Mox Opal banned in Modern you'll either have to find another source of black mana, replace Cranial Plating or rehab this as a Legacy deck. Your best bet is to add in either Mox Tantalite or Paradise Mantle.

Also, have you considered enchantment hate(such as Broken Bond) and counter spells (such as Voidslime)? Otherwise you'll be vulnerable to cards including, but are not limited to, Blood Moon and Solemnity.

Hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Why Solemnity? It would stop your own commander from getting big

trippy_mcfly Thank you! I’m gonna filter out Thorn of Amethyst and Approach of the Second Sun and Chromatic Lantern to filter in Mox Opal and Solemnity and another land

On the proactive side, things look very good. You’ve got lots of synergy and some great wincons. I think you should sideboard in some better removal though. A well timed Solemnity or Vampire Hexmage can really derail you, so I’d recommend something a bit faster than Broken Wings like a Natural State or even a Nature's Claim.

Last_Laugh on Marchesa - Till Death Don't we Part

I have several suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category.

ETB/DEATH Trigger Abuse: Spark Double feels like it was custom made for Marchesa and either allows you to abuse any etb/death trigger on everyone's turn thanks to that automatic +1+1 counter or it copies Marchesa for double Dethrone. Metallic Mimic/Sage of Fables/Vigean Graftmage all allow you to abuse etb/death triggers on everyone's turn or immediately protects Marchesa. Sac Metallic Mimic to rename its creature type as needed. Sages draw is nice in a pinch. Vigean allows 2 free sacs every turn (itself plus 1 other). Marchesa's recursion are all separate triggers so the creatures enter in whatever order you want and this is HIGHLY abuseable.

Card Draw: Grim Haruspex is worth its weight in gold here.

Discard: These can put opponents into topdeck mode to seal up games tighter than a dolphin's butthole. Oona's Blackguard, Vindictive Lich, and Sadistic Hypnotist.

Sac Outlets: Goblin Bombardment can only reliably be dealt with by 2 colors. Carrion Feeder protects itself with +1+1 counters and ends up pretty beefy. Falkenrath Aristocrat can protect itself via haste, indestructible, and/or +1+1 counters.

Non-Combat Finishers: Gray Merchant of Asphodel/Kokusho, the Evening Star (especially with Vigean Graftmage or Metallic Mimic) WILL end games even if you think the life gain is counter productive (spoiler alert: it's not). Flayer of the Hatebound is 36 damage (w/ 4 players) in one trip around the table thanks to Undying and punishes people who play Solemnity by going infinite. Terror of the Peaks can do some serious damage also.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. I've been playing Marchesa for about 8 years now and can help suggest cuts if you'd like. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa to Love Them

Ok, so I know that this card would be absolutely broken by Solemnity to the point of an instaban. But flavor-wise, this is meant to be a mainstay for a Magda deck. Sometimes it's unfortunate that really good synergy cards get banned because of one particular interaction that causes them to overwhelm a format. Just pretend that the broken combo doesn't exist, and enjoy this card for what it's meant to be.

legendofa, And sometimes, challenges are slow to be answered, and I still get damn ninja'd. Which is what we have here.
