Sygg, River Cutthroat Discussion

Wirex on Sygg Rogue Tribal

Hey Thanks armlessbastard ! I think you are probably correct about Crosis's Chamber. I think I was just throwing in everything i could find that added grixis colors without really reading them. I'll probably shave a rock or two in favor of some more basic lands (I think I overthought it on my first go round). I really need to lean more into the +1+1 counters synergy that Marchessa provides, because it feels like im not really utilizing her to her fullest potential. I hate to say it, because it would be a lot more work, but there may be a commander that fits the archetype i'm going for better. Sygg, River Cutthroat may be better.

Some things I think I will add on the next go round are Herald's Horn, Reconnaissance Mission, Unspeakable Symbol, and Night Dealings

Yeah, I was working on a discard deck around Sygg, River Cutthroat. I absolutely LOVE Tinybones, though.

My recommendations :

I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.

LOW IMPACT:

Teferi's Protection

Rhox Faithmender

Have you considered leaning a bit more into Rogues? They have a really nice lords (Stinkdrinker Bandit/Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive/Sygg, River Cutthroat) and some nice equipment (Cloak and Dagger). Unstable Mutation is a better alternative to Unholy Strength. Even though it will eventually kill your creature you can sneak in up to 10 damage with a 1 power unblockable creature before that happens. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, Sygg, River Cutthroat is part blue, and can't be in the deck. As a replacement, I recommend either Walking Ballista, which is like a second Triskelion, or either Tooth and Nail or Defense of the Heart, both of which can find both parts of your combo.

Actually my favorite politics deck is piloted by Sisay, Weatherlight Captain. It is... admittedly, not anything extraordinary, but I like it cuz it's quirky and it's a deck that can group hug in the early game and really punch through in the late game (with Sygg, River Cutthroat, Arvad the Cursed, and Basandra, Battle Seraph to push opponents into awfully inopportune attacks).

That said, I think that Marchesa excels at turning opponents against one another and accelerating the game with attacks and I really like that. I play it in a hypothetical Zurgo Helmsmasher politics deck. I was considering putting Zurgo in its place, as he really exemplifies how I take something that's pretty lame, honestly, and makes puts an unexpected spin on it.
