It's workable. I used the marx configuration as a
voltage doubler, and it worked OK.  My goal was to
boost the 4500VAC from a pair of MOTs up to 9000VAC
using only a single marx stage.  It made very nice
sparks for a little while--then my MMC released it's
smoke.  If you are planning to use a high current
source as I did, you need very robust caps!

My marx coil was an experiment.  I can't honestly say
I built a practical marx/tesla coil--only that I
proved to myself that the scheme is technically
