I'm looking into a Marshall JCM900 or 800 if I can find it, or an Orange Rockerverb head.
What one is best for a Electric Wizard-esque tone?

My gut feeling says Orange. All stoner bands probably use those amps for a reason, right?

The Rockeverb 100 is great, because you can switch between four output power levels. Basically it can use any number of the four EL34 power valves for output, so you have lots of options for output level and headroom. On a dubiously subjective note, the 100w version seems to sound better than the 50w version, as well. I have no explanation for that, other than more is more. :D

if you want to sound like electric wizard literally just get a Boss FZ-2. The amp you use under it doesn't matter.

and as literally that's the pedal they use for their sound the amps are just basically used as clean backgrounds with slight tube distortion from being pushed volumewise.

I would say the Orange but like others have said you want to put more into the pedals than the amp itself. I would also recommend getting a cabinet with 12" speakers instead of 10" if you want that crushing feeling to it. While your at it why not get a full stack just to be safe. You could even do a mix with a 4x12" cabinet on the bottom and a 4x10" on the top to get the low end and high end both in the mix.
