Admiral Beckett Brass Discussion

You're missing the biggest rares and mythics that are pirates. I would add Admiral Beckett Brass, Deadeye Plunderers, and Hostage Taker.

I think I can see some of the setups for each of the possible outcomes of the vote. The stage is now set for a conflict between the Sun Empire and River Heralds for either of them to win Orazca. Actually, I would prefer to think of the River Heralds' scenario as the peace version and the Sun Empire's scenario as the fight it out version.

I think the Legion of Dusk scenario will involve Vona rallying the vampires against Elenda's wishes.

I wonder if the Brazen Coalition scenario will involve Admiral Beckett Brass and her fleet.

Arcane Adaptation, Conspiracy and Xenograft would be nice additions. If you but some of them in this deck the stolen creatures profit from cards like Door of Destinies or Obelisk of Urd and help you activate the ability of Admiral Beckett Brass.

i would personally suggest adding 2-3 copies of Forerunner of the Coalition as in my pirates i also run 2/2 of Admiral Beckett Brass and Hostage Taker, and quite honestly, sometimes you just dont find them.

Once you add some Forerunner of the Coalition the odds to find your key creatures skyrockets, as it, along with Siren's Ruse creates a scenario where the chances of finding a Admiral, Hostage taker, forerunner or ruse is really high, and if you have a forerunner and ruse her, you can go and find another pirate! im talking about a 7/60 chance of finding a 1 of if you run 3 Forerunner with 4 sirens ruse. its bonkers how consistent your strategy becomes if you can do that. Siren's Ruse also has a multiple different other applications as im sure you know, and i believe it is the key card in a Grixis pirate setup. The other idea ive been playing with is Warkite Marauder into Shock, Lightning Strike or Dual Shot in place of something like Vraska's Contempt, probably still need that since since in RIX Walk the Plank and Fiery Cannonade might become even more situational that it was before, with the merfolk and vampire 2 manna lords i dont feel the cannonade would have a place anymore, but im still torn as to what to replace that with in the sideboard as it was sooo good.

i took a different take on this deck, using a tempo based strategy trying to activate Admiral Beckett Brass. the idea isnt to get 100 creatures on the field, just 3 to hit enemy lifepoints, and with the admiral, if you can do it once, you will do it again and again as the board-state steamroles into your favor. check out Grixis Admiral(Rivals of Ixalan variation)

Angrath, Minotaur Pirate, is not a legal commander because it is not a creature. Only Planeswalkers which specifically delineate that they can be used as a commander (example: Teferi, Temporal Archmage), or when they start as a creature (example: Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip).

Another rule of commander is that all cards in the deck must exclusively fall within your commander's colour identity. Colour identity includes both the colorus to cast the spell, and all mana symbols in the text box. Even assuming arguendo your commander is legal (though it is not, as established herein), its colour identity would be Red and Black. Thus, you can only play cards with Red or Black colour identities.

I am well aware Boros Reckoner can either be red or white. Its colour identity is both Red and White--as such, it would be illegal with a Rakdos commander.

The following cards, would also fall outside Rakdos' colours, and thus would not be permissible:

You also cannot use any lands which have non-Red/Black symbols in their rules texts. Vivid Creek, Island, Dimir Aqueduct, Dismal Backwater, Swiftwater Cliffs, and Izzet Boilerworks are all no-goes. The same is true of artifacts, so Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, and Sky Diamond cannot be used. While Fellwar Stone can produce non-Red/Black mana, because it does not have mana symbols in it, its colour identity is colourless, and can thus be used in any deck.

I think that covers everything. There might be more that I missed. I hope this proves helpful.

Couple quick points:

  • Who is your commander? Currently you have Angrath, Minotaur Pirate listed as your general, though he is neither a legal commander, nor fits with the colour identity of the rest of your deck. I presume Admiral Beckett Brass is supposed to be your commander?

  • Boros Reckoner is not a legal card in this set--its colour identity is Red and White, and thus cannot be played in either Grixis or Rakdos.
