Rhadamanthus on What does Cathar's Crusade trigger ...

The key thing to note is that Edgar Markov's ability triggers when you first cast the spell and Cathars' Crusade triggers when a creature actually enters the battlefield. In your example:

  • You cast Vampire Hexmage and Edgar triggers
  • Edgar's ability creates a token and Cathar's Crusade triggers
  • The Crusade hands out counters
  • Vampire Hexmage finally resolves and enters the battlefield, triggering Crusade again
  • Crusade hands out counters

Edgar Markov is a cast trigger, so the creature will not be on the battlefield. So, for your scenario, When you cast Vampire Hexmage, Edgar Markov will create a 1/1 vampire, of which Cathars' Crusade will trigger and all of your creatures will get a +1/+1 counter. Then, Vampire Hexmage will enter the battlefield, which will then trigger Cathars' Crusade again, of which all of your creatures will get another +1/+1 counter.

Let's say I have a Cathars' Crusade on the battlefield, and my commander is Edgar Markov. If my Vampire Hexmage (or any other vampire) enters the battlefield, does the Vampire Hexmage enter first or the vampire token created by Edgar Markov? And what does the Cathars' Crusade's ability trigger on?

first of all I like the low mana curve of your deck. This is how Edgar Markov should be played!

Rhadamanthus on Does Metallic Mimic trigger Edgar ...

It won't trigger Edgar Markov. When you first cast Metallic Mimic as a spell it's just a Construct. You don't choose the creature type for its first ability until the spell resolves and the Mimic is about to enter the battlefield. This means it isn't yet a Vampire at the time Edgar's ability checks to see if it should trigger.

If I play a Metallic Mimic and choose Vampire for it's creature type, will my commander Edgar Markov's ability trigger and put a 1/1 Vampire token on the battlefield?

Hello everyone!

I am currently trying to get a Pirate tribal deck working with my local playgroup as I love the theming and flavour of the tribe but it is proving pretty difficult to get started mainly due to how difficult it seems to be to get Admiral Beckett Brass's effect off. The decks I normally wind up against are creature heavy Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or very streamlined Krenko, Mob Boss, a very fast wide Edgar Markov or tall Karlov of the Ghost Council, A beatstick toolbox The Ur-Dragon or Meren of Clan Nel Toth, A Human Tribal Sigarda, Heron's Grace or Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas and some form of heavy blue/Dimir or Bant control, usually Talrand, Sky Summoner or Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, though there is talk of a mill/control Scarab God in the works.

I'm not looking for hard counters, just giving the idea of the meta I'm playing in. We don't use infinite combos or mass land destruction, maybe one or two single target spells to remove things like Maze of Ith or other utility lands.

I usually keep running into the problem of not being able to keep enough creatures up and not being able to break through the lines to begin to steal things and get going, most creatures that come out tower above mine and I just can't keep up the pace when an opponent has a large enough field of creatures.

Are there any parts of this strategy I am overlooking or potentially new strategies I could pursue that would open up my options and make it easier to have an impact on the game.

Below is the upto date deck list, I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions either in this thread or on the deck comments.

Thank you all for your time!
