Nezahal, Primal Tide Discussion

Zauk on Narcissistic Echopraxia

Yeah I originally built this deck about 5-6 years ago. It used to run a bunch of card draw and fixing like Ponder. I attempted to tone down the deck at one point, but it did not assist in making it win less. The current version wins 9 of 10 multiplayer games.

I think I will be tuning this again and swapping out some of the current strategies. I think removing anything that takes control of creatures needs to be swapped out for more copy effects.

The last game I played I had 2 copies of Nezahal, Primal Tide out and was drawing a ton. The game before that it was 2 The Locust God and I used Stroke of Genius as a finisher.

Remora is cheaper than Study but it depends... I like Study a bit more but I've seen Remora get alot more card draw... also this creature has Remora pretty much on it... Nezahal, Primal Tide

First of all, this is looking a lot better than most beginner's decks, so you've got a decent place to start from.

Second point: Pirates are a tempo-based, aggressive tribe, even the relatively slower U/B ones. You're going to have a very difficult time capitalising the late game unless you manage to play Fleet Swallower or Nezahal on curve and your opponent doesn't have an answer, so you're better off playing to your strengths and going lower to the ground. You're also 7 cards over 60, so this is what I'd recommend you take out:

Good luck!

Awesome deck. I was wandering how to break Gigantomancer and this seems to be the way. Have you considered Elvish Piper as a backup? It can pull Iona, Shield of Emeria or Gigantomancer from your hand, and its also a 1/1.

Also Nezahal, Primal Tide might be a cool sideboard card.

Seems like a solid control build, Aatrogic.

I'm no control expert, but I have a few comments/critiques.

Only 1 Disallow? This seems to be the best counter in standard.

I'd mainboard the Torrential Gearhulks and side/remove Dovin Baan. He can be fun in the HazoRed matchup, but beyond that, I'm not sure if he's worth running over other instant-speed control elements.

It may be worth finding sideboard space for Nezahal, Primal Tide for the control mirror.

That's all I've got. Good luck at the PPTQ!

Nezahal, Primal Tide could fit well, but not really in the theme "flying". Still, can replace Glyph Keeper, that's for sure. Actually, the sideboard is kinda non-flying.. so it would fit with that... thx!

Cryptic Serpent is already in the sideboard. Soul-Scar Mage could fit well, but not flying and too expensive for my budget. Would worth to try, tho.

I was playing Firebrand Archer before. But wasn't good enough. Die too easily, doesn't deals enough damage. Riddleform is a WAY better 2-drop in this deck.

Have you thought about Nezahal, Primal Tide over glyph keeper?

Personally, I don't think you need a large, instant-win in modern blue control. Delver of Secrets  Flip, Thing in the Ice  Flip, and Talrand, Sky Summoner all are strong early plays that will win you the game in the long run.

Though, if you like big plays, there are some options:

Fleet Swallower is a big play that has a traditional blue, non-beater feel.

Corrupted Conscience allows you to take their win condition for yourself.

Cryptic Serpent is a boring, vanilla beater, but you can usually cast it fairly early.

Nezahal, Primal Tide is immune from counterspells, gives you card draw, and can easily be protected from removal.
