Skullblade248 on YarHarFidllyDee, I steal ur Planeswalker Abilities

Again, I don't mean to ruin your fun, but as this website is designed to help improve decks...

First, I assume it's just a midrange Pirate tribal deck. I don't really see any Revel in Riches shenanigans or anything. There is a little bit of artifact interaction, and I think that's something that could be built upon.

Deadeye Plunderers is a ridiculous card that can end games fast if you can build up a bunch of artifacts. But, it's a liability if you don't have any on the board. A 3/3 for 5 is too slow by itself. I think that two copies sounds fair, and with two copies, you'll most assuredly have a smile on your face when you topdeck it. Going with the Artifact subtheme, I would say 2 Fell Flagship wouldn't hurt.

Captain Lannery Storm is a really nice way to power up Deadeye Plunderers . Even if you don't have one, she ramps you up a turn or two, which if we want to run Nicky B and Moo, we're going to need. Three copies is plenty, as she's powerful, but still legendary.

Dire Fleet Captain works really well in any Pirate deck. I run four in mine, but mine is super aggressive. I think that with a longer game , less copies are necessary. I would also say that Dire Fleet Neckbreaker is a great way to close out games, but for a more casual and fun game, two is plenty. March of the Drowned will also be pretty helpful later in the game. 2x. If you want even more Pirates to go with the treasure you're amassing, perhaps 3 Fathom Fleet Captain .

Now, this shocks me. You run two Planeswalkers from planeswalker decks, but fail to use their fetch cards. Especially as they're perfect in casual games. I would say 2 of both Angrath's Fury and Visage of Bolas . And of course, keep all of the Planeswalkers the same, number and all. I would also say that Angrath, the Flame-Chained is on flavor. Why just take their loyalty abilities when you can help yourself to everything they have? Maybe 1 Admiral Beckett Brass too.

We should put in more Treasure, so 3 Sailor of Means and 2 Wily Goblin . Slap them in with the power of FlexTape! (not sponsored). Removal is lacking, so I would say 3x Unlicensed Disintegration. Trust me, it's worth it.

And we're left with 2 more slots. More instant and sorcery spells would make this a control deck. Hostage Taker is great in casual games, but it costs a pretty penny. I think that 1 copy of Revel in Riches wouldn't hurt, as we have a bunch of treasure token makers. To help you win with Treasure tokens so you can throw them in the air as depicted in the art, then Storm the Vault  Flip is our best bet.

2x March of the Drowned 3x Dire Fleet Captain 3x Fathom Fleet Captain 2x Wily Goblin 3x Captain Lannery Storm 2x Fell Flagship 3x Sailor of Means 3x Unlicensed Disintegration 1x Admiral Beckett Brass 2x Dire Fleet Neckbreaker 1x Storm the Vault  Flip 2x Visage of Bolas 2x Angrath's Fury 2x Deadeye Plunderers 1x Revel in Riches 1x Angrath, the Flame-Chained 1x Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God 1x Angrath, Minotaur Pirate 1x Nicol Bolas, The Deciever

Do whatever with the mana base, I guess. Maybe Artifact Lands. I left out Fathom Fleet Boarder as it literally kills you for no reason. Rona isn't a Pirate and is a liability, and Dreamcaller Siren is neat, but niche. Sideboard material. I believe the list I spent the last hour on is budget, but I hope it gives you some inspiration and perhaps a few new tricks to try with your friends.

Just remember this rule of thumb with Pirates: Anything they can do, you can do better.

Yo le Kroaxis.

Petit cube vraiment plaisant à jouer, qui sera encore plus boosté avec quelques évolutions et équilibrages. J'en suis un peu au même point que toi au niveau du built, mais quelques idées pour améliorer les synergies selon moi :

  • Toujours favoriser une carte qui fait 2 pour 1, c'est à dire qui peut être utilisée de plusieurs façon selon le built. Exemple : Divest permet de discard un adversaire mais elle ne fait QUE ça. La remplacer par Pilfering Imp permet de jouer une créature / Avec une capacité d'évasion / Qui discard l'adversaire. Il sera donc beaucoup plus facile de lui trouver une place dans un deck.

  • Se méfier des cartes qui interagissent trop entres elles de façon situationnelles. Exemple, le cycle des cartes type Liliana's Triumph . La probabilité de se retrouver avec cette carte ET un planeswalker Liliana dans le même pack est à mon avis trop basse... Dans beaucoup de cas cette carte sera boudée car morte.

  • Si tu as du mal à trouver des archétypes, les principales bases de Magic feront une belle structure de départ :

    • Des Kills et du Cimetière
    • Du Boost de créatures et de la Ramp
    • Du Blast et de la célérité
    • Du Tempo et de la pioche
    • De l'exile et du Lifelink.

De cette façon, l'utilisation de tes cartes golds découleront logiquement de ces bases.

  • Méfie-toi également des cartes qui vendent du rève, mais qui n'ont pas réellement de cible dans le cube. Après avoir pioché cette carte hier et regardé ta liste verte, je me suis aperçu que Chord of Calling était quasiment une carte morte. En effet, avec ses trois , elle sera vraiment difficilement jouable dans une jeu autre que bicolor... Pourtant, elle est inintéressante pour aller chercher un Thon vert puisqu'il n'y en a pas dans la liste. Idem pour les Deadeye Plunderers qui seront beaucoup trop compliqué à optimiser dans un cube qui comporte uniquement une quinzaine d'artefacts.

Voilà :) Il me tarde de rejouer ce pack en tout cas !

Deadeye Plunderers would receive +1+1 for every treasure you control. Never used him so it could work maybe not.

I think you've gone overboard on mana rocks. From what I see, if you just want to deliver command damage, how about more treasure token producers and cards that make cheap artifact tokens. Deadeye Plunderers, Revel in Riches, Ruthless Knave, and Treasure Map  Flip would provide the tokens while making another victory condition. Mechanized Production works with those tokens too. Key to the City, Rogue's Passage, Whispersilk Cloak, and Trailblazer's Boots let you hit with Silas and Akiri.

If you'd prefer tokens that can block there's also Genesis Chamber and Myr Turbine. (For extra Fun, Genesis Chamber + Norin the Wary )

multimedia Since I was at work I forgot to include the alternate win con that I was thinking of in doing this. Totally my fault sorry. I was actually thinking of running Torment of Hailfire together with Deadeye Plunderers I was hoping to ramp the mana from anything that will allow me to get more treasure tokens and making Deadeye Plunderer the face of the deck to make way for an even darker plan of hailfire in case of removal.

Deadeye Plunderers still looks weak here. Without evasion, it’s just a 3/3 treasure producer for 5.

I honestly can think of a deck it would shine against. Zahid has flying, scarab god is scarab god and still plays well in control, Prosperous Pirates will Net you treasures and is a good body- as is Sailor of Means. Twilight Prophet is a good card draw/ drain life that can help push the mid game to late game victory. Gifted Aetherborn are a cheap body for attack deterants against small aggro.

Just all of those options would fit into the plunderers spot with better value for your game plan, but I would consider Zahid to answer a turn 3 Heart of Kiran or turn 5 Lyra Dawnbringer that will often hit the board.
