Captain Lannery Storm Discussion

theboxcarracer on Treasure Production/Control

I like the idea of running a few one mana spells like Opt and Spell Pierce (or Censor on cycling mode) so if I spend a whole turn is spent casting a treasure producer, there's still this threat of countering something or the option to dig for answers if the opponent plays something that can't be ignored.

This is coming from a bit of a backwards place, though; I run a very aggressive R/B pirates deck and having Built to Smash available for the treasure produced when Captain Lannery Storm attacks is just a kind of freeing feeling.

What do you think of Mechanized Production to help with producing treasure tokens and Captain Lannery Storm as part of both a tool for treasure wincon and beatdown wincon? Mechanized Production can be a bit slow but after its 4th trigger it would already have paid it self. Plus you only need 8 treasures to win with Mechanized Production instead of 10 from Revel in Riches

Why are you playing Captain Lannery Storm? I may have missed that somewhere in these archives, but it seems to me that as a control player you would prefer to have a more defensive treasure production, for example another copy each of Gleaming Barrier and Sailor of Means, maybe even another Hornswoggle or the like.

Jodah is by far the most intriguing leaked legendary so +1 from me. I'd say you should run Fist of Suns, Sunbird's Invocation, and Maelstrom Archangel to provide redundancy incase Jodah is dealt with.

Both Forbidden Orchard and Exotic Orchard are great land additions. You could also consider the other cheap dual lands: BfZ tango lands and Amonkhet cycle lands

Skyshroud Claim, Wood Elves, and Nature's Lore seem like auto includes based upon your mana base and will serve you much better than Birds of Paradise or Captain Lannery Storm.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and Bloom Tender seem like great inclusions as well.

I think you could upgrade most of your removal packages. I understand that Contract Killing and Gild get you treasure, but cards like Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Path to Exile, Cyclonic Rift, etc. are far superior and more versatile. Sylvan Reclamation is also great to deal with a troublesome Blood Moon and can help fix your mana.

Good luck deck building and I absolutely love seeing someone play Hypnox!

I have never tried Dire Fleet Daredevil in my aggro pirate deck looks like it could be a good addition to score some big creatures if I can't win soon enough.

I also love Captain Lannery Storm to get a mana boost to cast more creatures earlier.

You might like to try Captivating Crew to gain control of your opponent's big guys if you can't win the game in the first few turns.

I also recommend adding some one drops like Daring Buccaneer or Rigging Runner to make it even quicker (a 2/2 on turn one is always good)

Angrath, Minotaur Pirate was never useful for me and doesn't seem like it's worth spending 6 mana for him.

Have fun !

Might try swapping Captain Lannery Storm for Storm Fleet Sprinter and are where that takes me. In a very early iteration of the deck I ran them, so Im familiar with the aggressiveness it has. Thanks a bunch!

It is a nice deck design you have going here. If you want to be a more aggressive deck then I would suggest Storm Fleet Sprinter. The unblockable tag will help you with attack based triggers from your creatures and the haste is always useful for fast aggression. If you want to include this creature for faster rush then you would probably want to cut Dreamcaller Siren, Captain Lannery Storm or dare I say Hostage Taker. The reason I would swap any of these cards out is because they are the higher end of your curve and I am simply suggesting if you wanted a more aggressive outlook for the deck.

Reason for suggestion over Lannery is because it can be blocked denying you triggers from Brass

Reason for Hostage Taker is because it usually takes an extra turn casting what you stole before you are willing to swing with it and can be blocked easily enough.

Reason for Dreamcaller Siren... its the next best option if you don't choose the other two.

I really like the hostage take so I understand not wanting to cut it from the deck, but It could be a side deck card for when you need it for certain match ups. The card functionality is relatively slow if you want to be an aggressive deck.

Like the deck you have as a base still. Best of luck with it.

While you have a lot of good creatures, I would recommend taking most of them out in place of the otters creatures you have. What I mean is, you have a high density of good creatures, but they have such low numbers in your deck that you will not consistently hit the creatures you want when needed. This is a common theme throughout the deck. Perhaps take out the Planeswalkers, Forerunner, Deadeye Brawler, and River's Rebuke in the main board and Recover in the sideboard for a playlet of March of the Drowned, 2-4 (probably 3)copies of Deadeye Plunderers if wanting to stick to the treasure theme. Otherwise throw in another copy of Captain Lannery Storm and Kari Zev, Skyship Raider. Fiery Cannonade would go well in the sideboard and could even make it main board if you know your meta plays a lot of small creatures. Storm Fleet Sprinter is another card that easy should be a playlet. Another 1 copy could work, though. Banner is a bit too high of cmc for Standard, but Lookout's Dispersal would be awesome as a playset. If there are any more spots in your deck, add more lands! Your land base is very low, especially for a three colored deck. Good luck!
