Minor alteration you might enjoy - Horde of Notions for a general - you can't tutor out cards from play, but it lets you run any changling for , and cast them from graveyard as well.

another odd option is Reaper King for destruction of permanents

odd "lords" that might fit well -

Admiral Beckett Brass and or Captivating Vampire - Steal their stuff!

Bramblewood Paragon & the their tribal parallels - give a static bonus even after the card leaves

Death Baron - pairs well with first / double strike. kill stuff dead. good alternitive to Zombie Master

Drogskol Captain - another lord of the unreal, effectively. plus it steroids

Scion of Oona - see above, but shroud. can't target it, but has flash

Field Marshal and / or Stromkirk Captain - pairs well with deathtouch

Seshiro the Anointed - big buffs + card draw = win

Midnight Entourage - Gives a mini Phyrexian Arena effect when one dies

Myr Galvanizer - untapping is amazing. do stuff more!

Pheres-Band Warchief - because tribal centaurs are apparently a thing

Timber Protector & Crested Sunmare - because indistructable is amazing

Unnatural Selection - because more messing with stuff is more better

AEther Shockwave & Whelming Wave - lockout effects

Crux of Fate - because it is now viable in a non-dragon tribal

Goblin Chieftain - an alternitive to goblin king - not a fan of landwalk, personally. to circumstantial

I know pirates arnt so good but Land Tax is like the only card that makes Admiral Beckett Brass worth his weight, pirates are super cheap too

Phaetion on Having Doubts

Basically, I've recently had a trend of being targeted, even though some games I never did much, and it's getting very annoying (and giving me an undying hatred of Aminatou, the Fateshifter)

I've decided to scrap everything and build something new...

...but now I got this self-doubt that makes me think whenever I take a deck idea, asking myself (will I get targeted even if I have nothing?). Worse, I have no emotional attachments to any of my decks, and it bothers me more than it should.

Currently, I'm deciding between Admiral Beckett Brass and Pir/Toothy while thinking about a casual take on Kess, Dissident Mage. Even then, I look at each of these and that question appears again. Any ideas are welcome, but I really don't want to use options that are dependent on my general/commander choice. Thanks in advance.

Argy I have tried Admiral Beckett Brass and found it is not very good due to the fact that the biggest weakness right now is Deafening Clarion and Admiral Beckett Brass requires a lot of pirates. In addition as a sort of tempo deck I prefer Dreamcaller Siren because it has flash. I will test out Fight with Fire and Banefire. I have not had a big need for a bigger play than a four drop but I am considering looking into it, when I built this deck I was very focused on the power of Pirates and only put Pirates into the deck, but I am open to ideas.

You've got nothing at the top end of your curve so all your Opponent needs to do is keep your early game under control and they soon end up with Creatures large enough to block without trading.

If they have a couple of large fliers you end up not being able to hold them off for very long.

Have you tested with Admiral Beckett Brass, since you are in Grixis colours?

My partner StuBi and I did muck around with a Pirate brew but found we could only make it work with The Scarab God in the mix. Unfortunately you no longer have that card in Standard, or even Torrential Gearhulk.

You need to work out a Creature that comes out for either 5 or 6 CMC that will basically mean game over for your Opponent.

Interesting list! Its giving me ideas for my own piratey build The Crew of the Black Pearl: Dimir Piracy [GRN]

Have you considered Divest as an option? Seems like it might be easier to fit in casting it in your early turns instead of holding up Essence Scatter in some cases.

Also if there is a build for Admiral Beckett Brass, this might be it...c'mon you know you want to splash for it.

What kind of budget are we talking?

Your second to last paragraph screams Muldrotha, the Gravetide to me (probably biased because that's what I'm building). You're constantly re-using your permanents and removal, and you can run things like Hostage Taker and Kheru Spellsnatcher to steal opponent's things, and then reuse them!

Some other commanders that come to mind are Admiral Beckett Brass and Yasova Dragonclaw which allow you to continually steal opponent's creatures. Plus the are in the colors you were thinking.

Do any of those sound appealing?

Leodragon67890 That's a pretty good idea. I've been meaning to build another pirate deck. Not sure what exactly its going to be. All I know is its going to have some ships (cause a pirate isn't a pirate without a pirate ship) and Admiral Beckett Brass. Its a neat card.
