Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer Discussion

Want a terrifying pairing? Nekusar, the Mindrazer + Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist, Nin, the Pain Artist, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, or Selvala, Explorer Returned. Never have players hated drawing cards more.

I'll look at him!
I might have Gwafa lying around... maybe he will do.
Currently from also a Reddit post these are the ones I'm looking into:

Well that is the first time I have ever been to the WU page on edhrec lol. A great way to deal with hate I found is just speed everything up, I've done it a few times and lose some great cards in the process but taking a decks average CMC from ~4-5 down to ~2-3 is just something that can put you miles ahead of your opponents.
Since you seem set on changing commanders I really like Geist of Saint Traft takes boardwipe or anti hexproof cards to kill and comes out turn 3 so you always have a creature then. He is small and other than control I don't know what your plan is. He is also very different from brago. They both like to attack but brago flickers your stuff this guy just hits harder.
Lavinia of the Tenth seems kinda meh. You can flicker her which if you can do that consistently every turn then she turns pretty good but I feel like you would be much better off going to GW and playing Gaddock Teeg so the big scary stuff is hampered rather than the small silly stuff.
Grand Arbiter Augustin IV doesn't seem like he would be directly hated. I play a karn deck with some mana reducers that are ignored because my opponents are busy with a turn 3 wurmcoil engine. So I wouldn't expect augustin to get hated off the board a lot. He slows your opponents and speeds you up. pretty nice and feels low key.
Isperia, Supreme Judge likes to swing into your opponents and is a decent body with evasion and makes people hesitate to swing at you. needs Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves or similar. much like brago does.
Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer can they really be mad at you when you give them cards? ;) (I jest they will be mad and this guy will die...)
Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun this one is new and interesting to me. I think this is one of your better options just load up on things like Stolen Identity, Phyrexian Rebirth, Rite of Replication and swing with scary unshockable tokens. Strionic Resonator should be great here. I really like this one for his cheap cost and you almost want him to die so that you can embalm him. that threat should keep him around a bit more.

Yea I was thinking about adding some removal spells but wanted to see how the bribe mechanic from Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer worked out first. If they can't do anything they don't need to be removed! However gonna play some games and if it feels like I need it I'll toss in some copies of Murder

Okay, so I think you've got the right intention behind this, but you actually might not want to start your dad off on this deck. It does have some very pirate-themed stuff, but several card interactions you have are fairly complex in regards to how much bookkeeping you have to do once the card is there. All those different counters and zones to keep track of can from cards like Bane Alley Broker and Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer and then also Quest for Ula's Temple could be a little confusing to a completely new player, so you may want to build up to playing this deck.
Although I will admit I say this not knowing how much of the game your dad already understands, so if he's got the really basic stuff then he's probably fine. Kudos to you btw for also making the deck have synergy between the cards.
SHAME ON YOU!
You've left out the original pirate of mtg! The great Ramirez DePietro!

maxon- I really like it. It's a bluff card if anything, most of the time I don't even have to use it, I'll just sit with mana open, and my opponents get the impression that I'll flood mana into it to prevent attacking. And even when I do use it, it's always been helpful, especially later into the game.
They have to decide, do they REALLY want to attack? If they do, they have to leave open at least as much mana as I have untapped.
I actually had a guy at my LGS see me use it in Kami, and immediately picked one up for his Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer deck.
And even better is that War Tax is less than $1

Good deck. I like some of the ideas you have in this deck but I feel that some cards are too weak and you are missing some really good cards. Here are the weak cards:
Darksteel Mutation, this is a 1-for-1 creature removal card that works fine in a 60 card deck when you're dueling. Not so good in a multi-player game.
Pacifism, same as above
Suppression Bonds, same as above and high mana cost.
Vow of Duty, yes it pumps a creature that then can't attack you, but there are better options.
Vow of Flight, same as above
Vow of Lightning, same as above
Glaring Spotlight, if you aren't running spot removal, not sure what this is for.
Cards you might consider:
Bronze Bombshell, hits for 7 damage and you can bring it back with Hanna.
Varchild's War-Riders, Tokens for everyone!
Thought Lash, exile stuff before it hit's play.
Puca's Mischief, another card to move things around the table.
Taniwha, to phase out lands.
Psychic Vortex, is a maybe, could be fun.
Avaricious Dragon, getting rid of hand options.
Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, to keep creatures from attacking you.
I hope that these recommendations at least give you some new ideas. Let me know what you think. As always, temper these suggestions with your budget and your collection.
