Enchantment (1)

Marchesa, the Black Rose

An aggresive value-based aggro deck with three resilient alternative win-conditions, namely Apocalypse, Hatred and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. Feel free to leave behind a comment and or make suggestions on the deck.


Sacrifice outlets:

Mass destruction/Bounce :

Apocalypse win :

Apocalypse is a very misunderstood card, on the face of it it would seem like you are putting your opponents ahead by discarding your hand, while everyone else are going to keep theirs. The truth however is very far from this.

The way you want to cast Apocalypse is by setting it up. Creatures in your graveyard are unaffected by Apocalypse. This means that you can sacrifice your creatures to a sac-engine, cast Apocalypse, and get them all back at the next end-step due to Marchesa's 2nd ability.

A resolved Apocalypse using this kind of set up should pretty much win the game on the spot.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker win :

This deck has multiple way's of comboing off out of nowhere with either Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Pestermite or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts

Imperial Recruiter + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker gets you your pestermite to untap kiki and start making copies again.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Sidisi, Undead Vizier does the same thing.

Imperial Recruiter + Sneak Attack or Sneak Attack + Sidisi, Undead Vizier can tutor or put recruiter into play, which gets kiki, sneak Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker into play copying Imperial Recruiter tutoring up Pestermite. Put that into play with the sneak attack, and you got the combo at a great discount and uncounterable!
