A block of great weapon marauders with the MoT+blasted combo? How cool would that be? Not losing 30 models during the long slog across the board would be amazing...
Can marauders take a magic banner? Don't have the book in front of me, but I thought they couldn't...

Can't take a magic banner, no. That's why you bring 2 blocks of 50+ Marauders, Marnepup - let's see shooting chew through THAT.

BSB can take a magic banner. Is it worth it is the question.
I know marauders can't have one... Which is why I said "wouldn't it be cool," not "isn't it cool?". As for the BSB, since you only get one and can't take a ward if you take a magic banner, no, probably not worth it... Maybe if you mark him Tz as well, and give him a shield, then put him out on the end of the front rank where he's hard to target in melee, and pray that the marauder champion survives? It's not the worst you could do, but I'll keep mine in my Tz warrior block!
As for blocks of fifty... Nothing two mortars and two cannons wouldn't sort out in a hurry! Ten casualties right off the top from the two cannon, then followed by a pair of pieplates... And that's one turn of shooting from 'standard' empire artillery..,
