Pitiless Plunderer Discussion

Mice_Overseer on Beginner U/B Pirate

3 days ago

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!

Chill_Casual on Mazirek, Extreme Sub $40 Budget EDH

Love the deck, it's a beautiful build and budget too. My kind of style. I would suggest Pox if you want to go full edge. Pawn of Ulamog and Pitiless Plunderer for mana. Vona's Hunger hits hard and is cheap. Skullclamp for draw. Mind Stone for sacrifice, mana, and draw. Perhaps Dread Return for recursion.

Hi Man. I just put a Meren deck together that is similar to yours. Here is the link, if you want to check it out: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/meren-mother-of-mosters/?cb=1520212347

Here are some cheap cards that are really good in Meren: Pitiless Plunderer, Pawn of Ulamog, Smothering Abomination, Spore Frog, Vindictive Lich, and Ashnod's Altar. Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are must-haves in Meren if you can afford them. Nice Deck!

The main strategy I'd go with is generating large amounts of artifact tokens/creatures to win with either riches or crazy recursion loops with giant beaters, sacking a few myr or thopters with something like Champion of Stray Souls to bring back all your giant beasties. This is just a bunch of possible options that would help with that strategy.

Doomed Dissenter and River Sneak really don't contribute to the theme of your deck at all- ESPECIALLY River Sneak.

I would suggest replacing them with artifact creatures like Scrapheap Scrounger (which can come back from the graveyard after being sacrificed or killed off) or with treasure generators like Prying Blade, Revel in Riches (which provides an alternate win condition), Deadeye Plunderers (which grows while you get more artifacts), or Pitiless Plunderer,

Take note, a lot of the cards I suggested have a really high mana cost, so you'll have to pick which ones you like better so that your mana-curve doesn't get too top-heavy.

Koekje on Treasure All The Way

I have added two Fanatical Firebrand and removed the Cinder Barrens and removed two Pitiless Plunderer. I have also added the two Scavenger Grounds

Thank you very much for the feedback

Chasedrk1 on Treasure All The Way

Ok the curve is a little wonky. It wants to be kind of a low to the ground aggro-ish deck with creature hate like most Rakdos decks. But you only have 2x 1 drops and they require another card to be in your hand. 4x Pitiless Plunderer is a little high in conjunction with 2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance and 4x Revel in Riches. If I had 4 mana on the board with a good board presence I wouldnt mind having 2-3 4 drops in the first 3 turns, but I am not able to cast but a 1/1 or a 2/2 before then. I would suggest you drop Daring Buccaneer completely for a 4x one drop like Fanatical Firebrand or even Bomat Courier would fit nicely providing some card advantage and early presence.

Other issue was Cinder Barrens without playing 3 color, thereisnt really a point for the tap lands. 2x Scavenger Grounds and 2 more basics would play smoother.

ShadowHawkIII on treasure black

You dont actually have many treasures in this deck, it looks more like a normal black aggressive damage deck, there are some great pirates that make treasures in black Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer, and some other black spells that grant you treasures Contract Killing, the most obvious being Revel in Riches. The equipment Prying Blade also gives you treasures when you attack. Seeing how expensive your deck already is, it shouldnt be too difficult to get a hold on those black Ixalan cards for even more treasures.
