Pirate's Pillage Discussion

The best card for Thousand-Year Storm is Pirate's Pillage. It's what really let's you go off.

Also Supreme Will isn't standard legal anymore, as for as I know.

I have some mixed feelings about Banefire. It works wonders on control matchups or matchups with tons of enchantment removal, where i can sub in Niv-Mizzet, Parun & Banefire To close out games.

The usual combo is to storm withPirate's Pillage to dig deep and generate a ton of mana, so Banefire + Shock + Shock isn't that optimal, the shocks can still get countered and with so little copies that becomes an issue.

I've been trying Lava Coil instead of Justice Strike. It answers Arclight Phoenix better than Justice Strike And still takes care of dangerous targets, such as: Crackling Drake, Steel Leaf Champion and Tempest Djinn.

Pirate's Pillage is the best card in storm (after Thousand-Year Storm of course). Electrostatic Field is great against aggro. I would also cut the green, it doesn't help you that much honestly, especially if you add Pirate's Pillage. I personally like some number of Radical Ideas in storm decks because they are low cost and repeatable and honestly more valuable while going off than Chemister's Insight.

Stroke of Genius over Mind Spring

I don't think there is too much of a need for Leyline of Anticipation seeing as this deck is already set to do a lot of creature-based stuff with haste. I think the orrery is enough.

Pirate's Pillage is pretty high costing for what you are trying to do, there are a plethora of cards you could put in over it.

You have both Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time while you deck isn't instant\sorcery heavy, which is just bad value. Would probably cut one for a more progressive draw spell.

Spell Swindle for Arcane Denial, Rapacious One for literally any other token generator. On-hit effects are so bad in EDH.

Cards like Hordeling Outburst, Krenko's Command, and Dragon Fodder are pretty bad value with the number of board wipes in the format. To contrast this, cards like Karn, Scion of Urza are much better because they are repeatable effects that have a larger impact when it isn't your turn. Those token generators at sorcery or even instant speed are pretty bad value for EDH imo. You would be better suited by many of the effects that you already have.

Where the fuck is Helm of the Host. Biiiiiiig missed opportunity here. I love that card to death.

Overall I would say without going through more than two of your custom sections that this deck needs a change in development ideology. Try to make the deck centered around the idea that you can count on 2-3 tokens on the battlefield through the effects of your permanents. There are cards that do this, but I have yet to curate them. Right now you have a lot of bad value to pull off some combos, but they all rely on a lot of mana and combat steps, which means its creature based. You are looking for a bad time if you pull the trigger on a deck like that. Remember to also build the deck with the idea that Brudiclad won't always be an option to put onto the battlefield, especially at 6 or more mana. Your cards have to create value for themselves without big daddy Brudiclad there to support them. Brudiclad needs to be a powerful support mechanic, not an overwhelming piece to the deck.

Drop the useless goblins and get treasures instead: Trove of Temptation and Pirate's Pillage are really nice.

Get Unclaimed Territory to help with your wincon dragons.

Sarkhan, Fireblood is pretty expensive but really good with dragons.

2x Lathliss, Dragon Queen, 2x Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and 1x Darigaaz Reincarnated might also be nice

Sideboard Shock and Fiery Cannonade vs faster decks

And ofcourse hope for some good dragons in the next set ;)

Hmmm. Cover of Darkness and Mana Drain seem good! Beyond that, more artifacts never hurt...maybe Curse of Opulence? You also don't seem to have many draw effects, so that might be a good place to start (Pirate's Pillage and Pirate's Prize?).

I would look into some card draw, since you are running low CMC cards such as Signal Pest, Springleaf Drum, Ornithopter, Memnite, and Mox Opal. That's twenty cards at CMC 1 or lower, plus twenty free lands...Maybe Expose Evil (clues are artifacts, so any investigate cards would work), Pirate's Pillage, Frantic Salvage, or Origin Spellbomb.Serum Tank would run well, as would Tamiyo's Journal or Trading Post.You could also run Nahiri, the Harbinger for a control/search element.

I had a similar Idea but ended up with for Brass's Bounty, Captain Lannery Storm and Pirate's Pillage. How is Vraska, Relic Seeker doing in there?
