Captain Lannery Storm Discussion

W4W4 on $25 red ramp sorta rush

I took a similar version of this deck (adding 2x Verix Bladewing and 2x Lathliss, Dragon Queen while removing 2x Captain Lannery Storm and 2x draw cards) to my local FNM and finished 2-2. It's a fun deck and being able to swing with Charging Monstrosaur or Skizzik on turn 3 always caught my opponents by surprise.

That being said, there were times I felt I needed more burn, more draw power, or more mana.

  1. For wide/aggro decks, I think I will need to have Shock and Fiery Cannonade side-boarded. This extra burn can help keep the field clean until turn 5-6 when I have more large creatures summoned.

  2. I am too cheap to buy Risk Factor and used 2x Tormenting Voice instead. Probably not as good, but it works well enough. I will run 3-4x Tormenting Voice in the future.

  3. I was using 22 lands which was admittedly too low. 23-24 lands seem to be a necessity for this deck.

The other problem I encountered involved Goblin Instigator. I understand his synergy with Skirk Prospector, but it felt I was more often playing Goblin Instigator for two 1/1 blockers, rather than a mana source. Because it only matches with one other card in the deck, I may remove Goblin Instigator entirely.

Thanks for the great deck idea!

I'd say, drop the Captain Lannery Storm and add another Legion Warboss. Why? Because the Legion "Goblin Rabblemaster" Warboss' effect is pretty good. It gives you another creature to attack and the mentor effect really suits well with Swiftblade Vindicator. That's just my opinion though...

OberstHati For sure. Shalai doesn't protect against Teferi proper, but against the decks that play Settle, which usually run Teferi. She's decent protection into the various control decks looking to maximize targeted removal and Settle.

As for the mana base and Chainwhirler, yes. It's suuuuper greedy. I've found in my very limited testing that it's playable on turn 3 about 75% of the time. Thing is, I'm just as happy curving Knight of Grace into History, and then playing Chainwhirler on turn 4 or 5.

It's greedy. No way around that.

I've thought about Captain Lannery Storm as a way of helping with the manabase, but she's a 3-drop too which just stacks that slot too full. May be worth cutting Shalai for her... I dunno.

Orion93 I actually have ordered Captain Lannery Storm and Captivating Crew, both x4, with the other card. I just kind of felt that Captivating Crew requires too much mana, just like Vanquisher's Banner. I'll play some and see how different configurations work against my colleagues. Thank you for the suggestions :)

As a casual deck it looks fun and fair. You're right about losing some of the worse pirates to increase the numbers of the better ones. And pirates aren't expensive right now.

Maybe look into Captivating Crew and Captain Lannery Storm. Both can help stabilize your field in their own way. Captivating crew will steal creatures and Lannery is decent to help speed up your hands. Might also try something like Pirate's Cutlass or Prying Blade as well. I like casual so these aren't game breaking suggestions.

Why is the manabase so bad in Arena? Is there some kind of restriction on the number of rare lands you can play in a Standard manabase in Arena?

For almost two years now, since Kaladesh was released, Bomat Courier has been the best aggro red one drop in Standard. If you're playing aggro and red play Bomat. Post rotation Captain Lannery Storm may have her time to shine, but until rotation Ahn-Crop Crasher is the better three drop haste creature for an aggro strategy. Crasher and Exclusion's abilities can combine to really shut down your opponent's blockers.

Annexus I'm playing the Fungal Infection mainboard rather then vraska's due to the little one drops in game right now. If they swing with a 2/2 like Captain Lannery Storm, Fungel infection breaks that off with a -1/-1 and a free saproling. or if i need an extra sac for either the Demon of Catastrophes or Rite of Belzenlok
