As if she wasn't good enough already, her last ability will in fact return herself to the battlefield should she die with a +1/+1 counter on her.

Sure a Mikaeus is great, but there's more than just him.

Flayer of the Hatebound
Spinal Embrace
Slave of Bolas
Grave Betrayal
Chancellor of the Forge
Solemn Simulacrum
Creatures with Unleash
Creatures with Persist
Creatures with Undying

A few of the many ways to have fun with Marchesa.

A few cards in Grixis colors to quickly get +1/+1 counters on your creatures: Unspeakable Symbol, Amok, Simic Fluxmage.

Clearly, Grixis needed another insanely powerful Commander. That said, I can't help but adore the absolute aggro a card like this encourages. It warms my Timmy heart.

Anyone else think that she's poisoned one of the Lords from Three Kingdoms back there?... perhaps Cao Cao, Lord of Wei?

@Fenizrael - Nice list sir! Also Cauldron of Souls works great if she's not out, THEN play her, rinse/repeat... and River Kelpie for a DUMB draw engine ;) , or Sower of Temptation / Puppeteer Clique / Conquering Manticore / Molten Primordial and any sac outlet to REALLY annoy your friends with their own guys. -She's VERY fun indeed!

The obvious play is Mikaeus the Unhallowed, allowing you to continuously sacrifice a non-human creature.

Lets not forget the absolute stupidity that is Treasonous Ogre
Posted By: Gallega123 (6/3/2014 4:40:49 PM)


Oh. Yes.

The second ability is cool. The third? Good enough to build around. Mikaeus the Unhallowed obviously, but anything with haste is fine. Ball Lightning, cards that sac themselves to an effect, the list goes on.

I love that she's the colors Brago isn't, the two are clearly the big rivals here.

Does Dethrone stack?
Posted By: purplebackpack89 (6/4/2014 10:25:35 AM)


@purplebackpack89 Yes. From the rules:

702.104b If a creature has multiple instances of dethrone, each triggers separately.
