March of the Drowned Discussion

Gurmag Angler is great for this deck. It's sort of control, and control needs a finisher. Also useful would be Tragic Slip. Cut True-Faith Censer, your deck has 0 humans and there's no upside. Chainer's Edict and it's counterparts are helpful. Murderous Compulsion and Reduce to Ashes are utter trash. Dusk Legion Zealot and March of the Drowned are useful. You don't need many creatures. Basically cut all of them for the Zealot and the Angler. Hierophant's Chalice is some solid ramp. Increase the number of Shard of Broken Glass. Lastly, add Phyrexian Rager.

Sacrifice decks are great, especially when coupled with cards that have "leave the battlefield" triggers. Some cards that help maximize sacrificed are Ashnod's Altar and the Ruthless Knave. These pair well with cards like Dire Fleet Hoarder, Festering Mummy and Tattered Mummy. Cards like Supernatural Stamina keep them from actually dying, and if you consider pirates then March of the Drowned is super helpful! Good luck!

taq Also Spellskite is a good one or two of it keep stuff away from you and your cards take out the march of the drowned and one swamp and go with 3 Fatal Push and 2 Spellskite but that all depends on your meta that you play I have a bunch of people that play Slippery Bogle so it comes in handy. you should be fine with 21 lands as you are getting out treasures you may be able to drop to 19 and main board 2 Thoughtseize i am going to have to try and do some playtesting see how this runs

Rav3nhawk, I had March of the Drowned originally when I was thinking of putting in Avatar of Discord, and I wanted a way to get back cards from the grave. Since I don't use the Avatar of Discard anymore, I am inclined to agree that March of the Drowned should probably go.

Any suggestions as to what would be a good replacement? I think Duress will make a good sideboard, but probably not in main. Maybe Fatal Push?

While you have a lot of good creatures, I would recommend taking most of them out in place of the otters creatures you have. What I mean is, you have a high density of good creatures, but they have such low numbers in your deck that you will not consistently hit the creatures you want when needed. This is a common theme throughout the deck. Perhaps take out the Planeswalkers, Forerunner, Deadeye Brawler, and River's Rebuke in the main board and Recover in the sideboard for a playlet of March of the Drowned, 2-4 (probably 3)copies of Deadeye Plunderers if wanting to stick to the treasure theme. Otherwise throw in another copy of Captain Lannery Storm and Kari Zev, Skyship Raider. Fiery Cannonade would go well in the sideboard and could even make it main board if you know your meta plays a lot of small creatures. Storm Fleet Sprinter is another card that easy should be a playlet. Another 1 copy could work, though. Banner is a bit too high of cmc for Standard, but Lookout's Dispersal would be awesome as a playset. If there are any more spots in your deck, add more lands! Your land base is very low, especially for a three colored deck. Good luck!

@gebell, march of the drowned is super effective because it allows me to return two pirates to my hand vs just one with Claim / Fame. The haste does not make a difference is this case.

Might want to see how Claim / Fame works in place of March of the Drowned? Seems possible the ability to finish off an opponent with a hasted creature could work great.

sideboard march of the drowned incase they are trigger happy with shocks on creatures (something like that) Curious Obsession might be good.
