Dire Fleet Captain Discussion

It looks pretty fun but I think it would be better if you went more aggro for example removing Confiscation Coup, Swarm Intelligence, Kefnet's Last Word and other control spells. To put in more things like Rigging Runner and more Dire Fleet Captain.

Maybe go up to 4 copies of Skyship Plunderer? This creature helps spin up a fair number of targets. When paired with Samut, the Tested you can have it get two triggers bringing Samut to her ult on a turn four curve. It having flying also helps give you trigger Admiral Beckett Brass with less risk of being blocked.

I would possibly cut 1 copy of Dire Fleet Captain and Captain Lannery Storm for the copies.

I like your deck idea as is and think it is very solid looking plus fun. +1

This deck feels a little too crowded with different cards with different ideas. I agree with the previous commenter that this deck looks aggro and I think it probably would be best as an aggro deck with some small control elements to allow for damage to get through and to keep damage coming, as opposed to shutting down your opponent's deck. Lightning Strike is a must have for a red deck in standard right now and at least some of them is always good to have. Right now the deck doesn't seem to have a clear finisher and so I would recommend either more Admiral Beckett Brass or more Hostage Taker. Both of those cards are amazing 4 drops and they help control the early and late game and are excellent cards for an aggro strategy. Cut / Ribbons should be a sideboard card as it is much better if you see you're going against a slow creature heavy deck and is not a great main deck card for aggro. You should be running a 4th Unclaimed Territory for a tribal deck, it's that good. Siren Stormtamer is the second best uncommon in Ixalan just for its controlling ability. I don't think you need a full playset but two can help you especially with board control with one drops. One and two drops are much more important if you're trying to go an aggro route and with flying too it can hit for easy damage frequently.Kari Zev, Skyship Raider is a great two drop which allows for you to easily hit for damage early which also can help Ruin Raider go off. You may also want to think about dropping Captain Lannery Storm as she is legendary and isn't great in an aggro deck. If there were lots of treasure cards she could be good but as is she seems like a not ideal three drop, with Ruin Raider being much better, or even a pirate token from Fathom Fleet Captain. You may want to add more 4x of cards and take out some of those smaller cards like adding a Dire Fleet Captain or Fathom Fleet Captain while taking out Captain Lannery Storm. Hope this helped somewhat and gave you some different ideas about your deck

I like this deck and am creating a similar one built around Dire Fleet Captain. +1 Upvote from me.

I like the deck, but noticed that you only have 59 cards. Add another Duress and I will +1 Upvote your deck. I just got 2 Dire Fleet Captain and a Captain Lannery Storm last night in my booster packs. I thought it would be awesome to build a deck around those cards. I am definitely going to use some ideas from your deck.

I'm not making a suggestion for this decklist, but rather for those who are looking at upgrades for the deck. I'd recommend taking out one or two Dire Fleet Captain and replacing it with Hazoret the Fervent. Also, I'd recommend replacing most if not all Walk the Plank for Fatal Push. These are only a few of the many upgrades you could make. Just toy around with it and do what you like.

I love the Claim to Fame idea! You can make the deck a lot more resilient with Dread Wanderer and Scrapheap Scrounger if you want to give up the pirate theme a bit.

How big does the Dire Fleet Captain get?


2 weeks ago

i may be wrong in posting this.but i have a deck related to this one.why not add Tilonalli's Skinshifter for a turn 3, 9 damage? turn 1: Deadeye Tracker turn 2: Dire Fleet Captain turn 3: Tilonalli's Skinshifter swing for 9? now this would be a perfect hand. but even later in the game, it can do a lot.
