Forerunner of the Coalition Discussion

You miss to many drops 1-2Cloud Pirates and Siren Stormtamer ave built it evasion at low cost

Dire Fleet Daredevil is another cool guy. Fathom Fleet Captain is a token generator (just its trigger, but still ok). Warkite Marauder.

Forerunner of the Coalition it's a tutor.Slippery Scoundrel have built in evasion and protection (with Ascend).

Your curve is a little bit high, changing some cards with the ones I just suggest will be a great improvement.

Thanks for the response ValueBear. If you don't mind, would you tell me what you think of Fell Flagship and Forerunner of the Coalition as well? You probably considered both of those for this deck as well.

Okay to be honest I don't see any upside of Dinosaur hunter compared to any other deathtouch creature. I mean his appility is pretty much deathtouch for dino's only, so I think he is kinda like a draft card that should never see the light of constructed play :D

On your maindeck, I would suggest playing Bontu's Monument because it is a really stong payoff for playing mono black Fathom Fleet Boarder is an ok card but pretty weak compared to the likes of ahn,crop-crasher. Could still be played though, if you go with Bontu's, so you only pay 2 for him.

I would also cut the Fathom Fleet Cutthroat, because I think he is a little underwhelming and go for Heart of Kiran if you don't mind the missing flavor. Forerunner of the Coalition is also pretty good, if you play him with Bontu's for even more ping's. Only my 2 cents, hope you have fun playing :)

Hey! I just had a couple questions! Take them for what they are, I'll say upfront I've played for a while, but I'm nowhere near greatness so just know these are only the opinions of one small man.

Why run only 1x Cut, 1x Repeating Barrage, 1x Forerunner of the Coalition, and 2x Lightning Strike?

Why not 4x Vraska's Contempt or more Fathom Fleet Captain or for some fun Graveyard reccurence how about try 4x March of the Drowned.

If you look at Red you could also look at Lightning-Rig Crew for reoccurring damage because you've got some many pirates. Fiery Cannonade might be a nice card to sideboard in for token decks!

As for creatures Kitesail Freebooter is like a flying Duress with a body, which is super nice. Then you also have Kari Zev, Skyship Raider who is my favorite pirate!

Just looking at it, it's a well-built Aggro deck which could get going quite fast. With Angrath, the Flame-Chained, he doesn't fit in quite well especially with his final neg because your opponent's will have less cards in their graveyards from Deadeye Tracker and Dire Fleet Daredevil. Definitely replace the Lightning Strike's with Abrade, it's worth it for the artifact destruction. Perhaps take out some Fatal Push's and swap them with Walk the Plank and Vraska's Contempt to take out big threats. More Forerunner of the Coalition's, could probably take out some Ruin Raiders.

Oh, yeaGO could you remove the misspelled Forerunner of the oalition? The correct version also exists: Forerunner of the Coalition.

Deadeye Tracker, Deadeye Tormentor and Desperate Castaways are all pretty bad creatures. Grasping Scoundrel is a better 1 drop, Dire Fleet Poisoner is probably the best black pirate in standard right now, and id say Forerunner of the Coalition is a better alternative to Deadeye Tormentor

Im taking the treasure theme is to get Vraska or Dire fleet ravager out ahead of the curve?

yeah Vona's Hunger seems a little weak to me too. I do like the exile train of thought though, as i use Siren's Ruse in my pirate deck to flicker Hostage Taker, Forerunner of the Coalition, Dire Fleet Poisoner and faint an attack while making a pirate with Fathom Fleet Captain. Its a faster form of exile then that angel, and it draws you a card as well. you also dont have to slash white for it so thats sweet.
