    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you've got the text of Marchesa wrong. The correct text from the spoiler actually reads:

    Deathtouch, haste
    When Queen Marchesa enters the battlefield, you become the monarch.
    At the beginning of your upkeep, if an opponent is the monarch, put a 1/1 black assassin creature token with deathtouch and haste onto the battlefield.

    From my understanding, I don't think her second ability will work in EDH unless your oppoonent somehow becomes the monarch.

    posted a message on Zirilan of the Claw and his disposable dragons
    Like others have said, this deck is great and I really appreciate and agree with your thought process overall. I’m actually trying to build a Zirilan deck myself and have come across similar problems from certain cards being too dependent on the commander, so I think I’ll cut some of those out and put in more ramp like your deck. That said, I’m wondering if maybe you are too far on the opposite end of not providing Zirilan any support? I can understand cutting cards that are dead in your deck without Zirilan, but something like Conjourer’s Closet could still be useful with any dragons that have ETB abilities. A sac outlet like High Market doesn’t really take a card slot since it’s a land, but I can understand if you don’t want to run it if your meta is heavy with reanimation decks.

    Hi Spinny and welcome to the game. It's hard to give a direct answer to a broad question like that, but the best way to learn how to judge which cards are good or not is to keep playing the game! The intro and duel decks you purchased are a great way to start learning and I would advise you keep them as they are right now and just play them against your friends. This will allow you to see how each deck plays out. The duel deck you bought is especially awesome for playing against a friend because the two decks are balanced to play against one another.

    Try your decks against your friends and see how it plays out as is. Then ask yourself what you liked and disliked about the deck? Were there any cool synergies you found that worked really well? If so, maybe you could look into adding more cards into your deck that expand on that synergy! Or maybe you came across some cards that felt underwhelming or didn't do too much for you when played them. You could look into replacing these cards with something else. Maybe try out some of the cards from your booster packs!

    Magic is a very large and complex game. There are some great guides out there that can help you learn the basics of understanding power level, how the different colors compare against one another, and how to build a deck from scratch (google can help with that). These resources can help you hit the ground running. The best thing to do as a new player though, in my opinion, is to just keep playing, and experimenting. See a card that looks cool? Throw it in your deck, see how it plays out.

    Hope that helps some. If you have any specific questions about the game or deckbuilding suggestions feel free to PM me.
