Crush of Tentacles Discussion

Cool theme!

I wonder if you might drop a few artifacts to add some wipes that bounce creatures. Those would also help you stay alive in the early game as you try to deal with threats in multiplayer. Engulf the Shore, Evacuation, and Crush of Tentacles might be helpful. Maybe an AEtherize and a Cyclonic Rift, as well, or a River's Rebuke?

Boomerang seems like a useful targeted alternative, as well.

Happy playing!

Sweet list and commander!

Have you tested with Crush of Tentacles or Engulf the Shore as back-up rifts?

Carry Away and Commandeer seem like they might also be flavorful cards to test.

Happy playing!

Your deck looks good it just looks like it needs some board wipes or massive board bounce spells. Since it's Nekusar it might take a bit for you to kill everyone. Cards like Hour of Devastation,Cyclonic Rift, or Crush of Tentacles would do you some good. It's always good to set gameplan's back a turn or two. I also suggest Kumena's awakening when Rivals of Ixalan comes out. Having an Howling Mine for a few turns that later helps you draw cards only is nice. Since your gonna be drawing a ton of cards, you could probably also use more cards that give you no maximum hand size. Hope this help's and have a great time with EDH!

So this is both a decent start and has a long way to go. While I don't have many specific card cuts to recommend to you, I can point you in a general direction for you to go, as well as a bunch of cards that might help you...

Hopefully some amount of this will help! You're allready at the deck being only $90 so you're pretty close! Good luck!

Great theme & list!

Strictly for flavor...maybe test with Chasm Skulker, Crush of Tentacles, Engulf the Shore, and/or Skyship Weatherlight?

Happy brewing!

Crush of Tentacles would be great with the natural rebound

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Jalira budget (30$ deck)

Looks pretty great; I built a Jalira list myself recently, and she's an absolute blast to play. I'd swap out Tromokratis and Lorthos, the Tidemaker since you actually can't flip them with Jalira (she specifies nonlegendary). I suggest including Inkwell Leviathan as a replacement beater and Talrand, Sky Summoner as an additional token generator. If you want other big creature budget ideas Pathrazer of Ulamog, Frost Titan, Stormsurge Kraken, Artisan of Kozilek, and Deep-Sea Kraken are all pretty cheap.

Definitely recommend some board clears to help stabilize yourself into the lategame so you can actually get the big dudes out. Whelming Wave, Engulf the Shore, and Crush of Tentacles are all pretty good in this respect.

There's also some cheap lands that can make tokens for you to sacrifice lategame to make sure you don't run out of gas; Foundry of the Consuls, Spawning Bed, and Cradle of the Accursed.

I'm gonna link my build here in case you ever want to go above $30 as your budget; don't worry, there's nothing crazy expensive in here except for the Blightsteel Colossus I opened in a booster pack back in the day: Jalira Big Dumb Beaters EDH

Ooooo I like a LOT.

I have a few suggestions:

Hostage Taker is AMAZING when flickered, as you can keep strealing and playing Creatures, even Indestructible ones.

Deadeye Navigator would help you do this, and it's name is flavorful for Pirates.

Along those lines, I use Siren's Ruse and Supernatural Stamina in my Standard Pirate deck, to both protect Hostage Taker and flicker it.

Metallic Mimic would give you an excellent early play. It's costly to buy at the moment, but will drop in price when it rotates out. I like early plays in EDH that help to establish a strong board, as nothing much is going on for those Turns.

Vizier of Many Faces will let you make a copy of Hostage Taker or any other Creature you want. It also comes back from the 'yard.

Unclaimed Territory is a cheaper version of Cavern of Souls. Rogue's Passage would help to trigger your Commander's ability.

Search for Azcanta  Flip is my favourite loot and draw card, at the moment. It would easily help you to filter cards early on, then get the jump later in the game.

If you like Swan Song you also might find Reality Shift useful. Even the promo version, which I've linked to, is inexpensive.

You have no Counter spells, when there are some VERY good ones that cost peanuts.

Stuff like Cancel, Dissolve, Dissipate, Void Shatter, etc. Pirates need protection.

River's Rebuke is a nice card for interrupting one of your your Opponent's tempo, and putting you in the driving seat. Crush of Tentacles is also good, and suits the flavour. If you were going to use that card you might want some stuff in your deck that gives you no maximum hand size.

Tezzeret the Schemer looks like a Pirate, as far as I am concerned, and can help to Ramp. His Emblem would be fantastic in this deck, with all the Artifact generation you have.

That's all I have.

+1 from me for the Tribe.

Here's my standard version:
Ahoy, Me Hearties!
