@xoorath Just watched your report on the game you played against my deck and I really like seeing this, so let me begin by thanking you for this. I think Essence Scatter would be an interesting card, so I put it in the sideboard in favor of Aven Mindcensor.

I'm not sure on what to sideboard but I think I would go:-2 Nimble Obstructionist , -2 Aerial Responder, -1 Skywhaler's Shot, +2 Essence Scatter, +2 Kinjalli's Sunwing and +1 Cast Out.

If you have any suggestions on the deck, please tell me and I will take them in consideration.

I see the point of using Lookout's Dispersal and even contemplated putting it into the deck but seeing as all I want, and need to do is slow them down enough to aggro them out I felt as if it would instead slow me down as I always want to be playing a card every turn. Also thank you for the idea of Nimble Obstructionist that is a pretty good flier.

too many two drops. if you want protection why not Lookout's Dispersal or even Spell Pierce. also Nimble Obstructionist is a good flyer

Nimble Obstructionist is either flashed in beater or cycled to counter an ability. just having flash and flying makes it feel like an include. Opt is good not sure how much card draw the deck needs though. Unsummon is a good tempo swing to help keep the opponents hazorets etc off the field. Walk the Plank is good but the sorcery seems difficult same with the mana.

if you splash white you could get some more 3 drop fliers. even Aven Mindcensor or Kinjalli's Sunwing just a thought

wolfpants & MisterZeta Yeah the Cutlass is pretty cool. But I think it will most likely only be good in limited (sadly). About the Nimble Obstructionist, the more I think about it the better it gets... Still need to fit the gap for my 3-drops. But I'm not sure what to drop though... Maybe Opt... Also what do you guys think about swapping out Walk the Plank for Unsummon? I think the meta will be REALLY heavy on pirates as well, so Walk the Plank wont be the best probably. And since the deck is really tempo orientated I think making sure hitting every tempo i can is better. Also is harder for me to land then

Pirate's Cutlass does automatically attach to any pirate on the field. So you get one free equip. Nimble Obstructionist could be nice in here

corythackston Thanks man :) I'm more worried about keeping those Disallow though, considering how powerful they have been in general. I did in fact forget about Spell Pierce when I was making this so I am definitely going to figure out what I'm going to switch those out for. Probably Nimble Obstructionist.

I'm considering The Scarab God, but I don't think I'd need to take out Hour of Devastation for the sole purpose of running him because of the fact that he returns to hand when he dies.

Again, thanks for the suggestions :D
