Prosperous Pirates Discussion

Yeah my local meta are very competitive players and most are net decking pros so all the usual suspects for removal and gods and planeswalkers are a regular thing. Cruel Reality would be a viable option to you I think. Funny enough I was looking at it earlier today and thinking it could be kinda useful in my deck if a game ends up dragging on too long.

As far as Panharmonicon getting hit with removal or anything is just fine. If I need it something will be used to counter if possible and otherwise the deck doesn't need it to win. With Treasure Map, Sailor of Means, and Prosperous Pirates I can still easily generate enough treasures to win, especially if I get to use Siren's Ruse to blink the creatures for extra treasure plus draw.(and the beauty that there is a ruling that blinking creatures using Siren's Ruse removes all targeting so it acts like a protection spell too if needed.)

Other colors may be investigated too IMO.

White: Hidden Stockpile is nice with Ruthless Knave (+2 treasure every turn) Anointed Procession double treasure tokens.

Red: Saheeli Rai can do plenty too. Under Procession, you get 2 tokens from her -2. And you tokenise Prosperous Pirates, well... plus, her tokens are artifacts themselves and you can sac them to knave for even more triggers...

I built a similar deck list

I would swap out Hour of Devastation and As Foretold for a pair of Bontu's Last Reckoning. Hour of Devastation will not kill Carnage Tyrant and would just leave your board open to a green Dino foot to the face. With As Foretold, the effect is awesome but you don't have a lot of ways to draw and fill your hand with good cards to play.

Also, I would cut Gonti, Lord of Luxury Prosperous Pirates and even Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh. They are all solid inclusions, but it will take a while to get Nicol Bolas in play. Gonti isn't a bad inclusion, I would easily sideboard him. But I would swap the mentioned cards for x3 Herald of Anguish. He may be a 7 CMC 5/5 demon, but he's a 7 CMC 5/5 demon with improvise who can be cast for 2 black mana. AND forces your opponent to discard cards on the end step. AND acts as removal if you have a vast treasure hoard with nothing to spend the loot on.

Lastly, I would throw in x3-4 copies of treasure map . The artifact is a cheap investment that lets you scry through your deck for better cards for 3 turns and rewards you with a land and x3 treasure tokens in the long run.

Hopefully this helps a little

geekoftheagesMarionette Master for sure. Went off 6 times tonight. Herald of Anguish is getting pulled. Likely going to use Prosperous Pirates in place or Torment of Hailfire maybe. Sideboard was perfect. Did exactly as needed. Crook of Condemnation even saw action against GPG tonight and came in clutch.

Yeah I'm testing Herald of Anguish live but in the time I've been waiting for them to come in I've been using Prosperous Pirates and it doesh still mesh very well but I wanna see what a disruptive and evasive 5/5 can do for me as well in the Herald. Id take Depths of Desire for Siren's Ruse

checkforloot i did have them in my deck but was slimming it but will consider putting them back in if i do slim down 80 is a bit much but getting enough tokens is pretty easy because of Siren's Ruse i generally use them on Prosperous Pirates as they give 2 every time they come in the battlefield plus i let them dies and use March of the Drowned just so i can pull them out my graveyard and get more tokens. thanks for the suggestion.

So initial tests are showing the deck to be very potent. Played B/W tokens and it wasnt even a contest. First set 2-0 second set 2-1 only due to poor draw for land. R/G pummeler also doesn't stand a chance 2-0 both sets. If anyone else has built the deck and has been playing it let me know what holes you guys have found or any sideboard adjustments that were needed to be made.

As a note current testing was done short Herald of Anguish and Mechanized Production. Still waiting on them to show up. Negate and Prosperous Pirates were used in place
