Goblin War Drums Discussion

Evasion, evasion, evasion. That seems to be what the deck is lacking and is the best way to proc Beckett.

I see you have Cover of Darkness which is a good start. Add Levitation, Goblin War Drums, and Archetype of Imagination, maybe even Intimidation.

I also second the suggestion to add some changelings, mainly Taurean Mauler and Cairn Wanderer. The wanderer ends up being a stupid good pirate after a single wrath effect.

And until we get more pirates in the next set, more draw power will help you fill the board with pirates. Kindred Discovery seems like a must include.

Good luck!

Teleportal, Magmatic Chasm, Falter, Mark for Death, Seismic Stomp, and Tectonic Rift all muddle up your opponent's non-fliers. All star Bedlam could make or break the game, a more one-sided option is Goblin War Drums, Raging River, and War Cadence.

Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Cover of Darkness, Metallic Mimic, and Vanquisher's Banner all help out your chosen creature type well.

Look into some shroud and hexproof options, as you won't be targeting your creatures with anything, so making sure they don't get removed is important.

I'm building an Admiral Beckett Brass deck, and I know that Sun Quan, Lord of Wu Archetype of Imagination and Vela the Night-Clad will work, but compared to cards like Cover of Darkness and Goblin War Drums, the cmc cost is pretty high.

Are there any cheaper alternatives in blue? Even lands that function like Rogue's Passage and Shizo, Death's Storehouse would be helpful.

I think you should cut Goblin War Drums for Smuggler's Copter to help evasion and help your draws and early game aggression

Hi! Since you're battle plan is to slam, bam, and jam, how about a Predatory Focus? Slip all that jazz right through and double up. Damn, I love Saskia. She is out of control.

Insult / Injury is a Fog-proof multiplier that ends games.

The undersung Goblin War Drums will get your stuff through more often than not.

Until your next brew...+1 and done. <-- I'm pretending that's my tagline right now. There is beer invovled.

I think there are some more obscure bulk rares that could work for some mardu vampire builds. Path of Bravery is a decent choice for decks that want to keep the lifegain substrategy, but are mostly focused on going wide with Edgar. Similar rush decks could benefit from Goblin War Drums (also known as diet Iroas, God of Victory) and Whip of Erebos. I'll post more fringe cards here if I learn about them.

Qolorful I'll see if I can get another Anguished Unmaking for this deck. Love the flavor points. Funny thing is, it and Vindicate (the EMA one) are in the same deck haha. I may cut them in favor of more cheaper removal as that deck will eventually have Ad Nauseam.

CChaos I'll consider Goblin War Drums, I dunno how good Menace is in this deck atm, testing will suffice though.

Laochorn I should maybe actually add those in, the changeling ability is something I haven't considered. Mirror Entity is a win condition in this deck.

Thanks for all the advice and upvotes everyone!
