Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer Discussion

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.



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.

The activated ability would be countered. You would gain control of the creature for as long as you control Willbreaker, no counters would be placed, and no player would draw a card. If Willbreaker dies before the activated ability would resolve (either before or after Willbreaker's ability resolves) Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer's ability will resolve as normal, placing the counter and drawing it's controller a card.

Just curious as to how Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer and Willbreaker work together. Because Gwafa would target something, activating willbreaker's ability and gaining control of it. Then would Gwafa Fizzle because you now own the creature or would it still go off due to the fact that Gwafa has already targeted the creature.

Thanks In Advance,
