Baral's Expertise Discussion

If you have o e, Boros Charm is a pretty clean upgrade to your indestructible instants.Also, Baral's Expertise could give you a way to cast cards from your hand using Narset's trigger (and could replace Floodwaters pretty easily)

I had something similar to this but it was really focused on Hostage Taker and Gonti, Lord of Luxury blinking with things like Siren's Ruse, Select for Inspection and even Baral's Expertise. I'm transitioning from Modern to Standard and would like some advice.

Also +1 from me for this awesome deck.

Ogoki, what do you say about Baral's Expertise?

Spell Pierce, Mana Leak and Rune Snag are generally good, pretty cheap counterspells you could use.

I would recommend replacing Aberrant Researcher  Flip with Delver of Secrets if you don't mind the jump in price. Otherwise, you might want to just drop it as its cost is a little high for its impact.

You might want to drop Baral's Expertise as you rarely want to cast a card with it at sorcery speed and without that benefit, it isn't very good.

Going down a couple Rise from the Tides wouldn't hurt as you don't really need to cast it multiple times and drawing it early is just a dead card.

Scourge of Fleets is similar, so you might want to drop it entirely or go down to one.

I also recommend dropping Turn Aside, Supplant Form and Just the Wind.

Adding more Thing in the Ice  Flip would be good if you have some.

You want to drop down to 24 or so islands.

This should get you to around 60 cards.

i am keeping razakaths not because it is good tutor but because it also has a 1-mana cycling cost which is a key point in this deck i want to cycle cards and draw into fraying sanity and startled awake as fast as possible. however i can see what your saying and i might try Baral's Expertise. also i should mention that ixalan will rotate out battle for zekindar and oath of gatewatch so i still have until next block to finish this.

As above. A lot of things going out unfortunately. Mill just isn't fast enough and effective enough. Razaketh's Rite its stupidly expensive also. Its not worth putting in. Its a high cost mana card and you wouldn't have much mana left to cast anything... nearly a waste of a turn. Baral's Expertise maybe?

Good Pirate tribal matey! One feedback tho: River Rebuke seems expensive. Maybe Baral's Expertise?

Here's my list:

Thanks for the upvote on my Arjun deck!

I have a few suggestions you may want to consider:

Baral, Chief of Compliance, and Arcane Melee both provide cost reductions for your spells. Sapphire Medallion would do much more work for you than Sky Diamond. Baral also turns all of your counter spells into cantrips.

Being mono coloured, you don't need fixing, but Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse would help thin your deck along with the Myriad Landscape you already have. Any of the Bant, Esper, or Grixis panoramas would also help with this.

Disallow, Arcane Denial, Baral's Expertise, and Insidious Will offer some more good counters and other control.

Memory Erosion and Startled Awake can also help with the milling theme. However, I caution against focusing too much on that. People don't like being milled and will often choose to deal with it by removing you from the game.
