Looks fun! I’d probably recommend using bigger playsets of fewer creatures. Some of these seem a little redundant. For example, instead of having 2 Slippery Scoundrels and 2 Departed Deckhands, you could just have 4 Departed Deckhands.

Some things, such as Triton Shorethief, Master of Waves, Nezahal, Primal Tide, Entrancing Melody, and Frost Walker seem a little bit random as well. Its kinda like you have 2 decks that got mushed together. Id try to focus on this unblockable thing you have going and get rid of the fluff.

There are also cards that are a straight upgrade from current cards in here. Like Slither Blade being the same as Triton Shorethief, but with the unblockable ability you’re looking for. So I’d probably do some research and see what cards do these abilities with less conditions and similar mana costs.

Finally, I don’t really see any big wincons. Looks like you’re pretty much just trying to whittle down your opponents life bar with unblockables. Try to find something that uses being unblockable to your advantage that will act as a big finisher.

elvishimpersonator It would be cool for that, but you can't enchant Departed Deckhand with Curious Obsession. You sac it if you try to enchant it. I appreciate your feedback though.

Departed Deckhand could be another good unblockable creature for the curious obsession

I like this deck and have been playing around with Standard Spirits myself. Instead of running Sanctum Spirit I run Mirror Image as it can be copies 5-8 of Supreme Phantom or Departed Deckhand. Great to see Slaughter the Strong, I think a lot of people are sleeping on how strong that card can be.

Departed Deckhand will die when supreme phantoms comes in and buff it?

Not sure though

With M19, have you considered the 3 new spirits from that set Departed Deckhand, Supreme Phantom, or Remorseful Cleric?
