Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage Discussion

Tiny_Sir on Raff Draw and Go EDH?

Hey all.

Flash, Crackle, Pop!

This is the Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage EDH deck I made awhile ago, but completely revamped it, straying from the 40$ budget. The goal of this deck is to always draw, play a land (hopefully) and pass, doing everything at instant speed on my opponents turn which sounds really fun.

Any budget suggestions?

Thanks for all the recommendations. Right now I am leaning towards either Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage or a sphinx themed deck with one of the sphinxes I already own. Raff should be quick for me to build as I should have most of my esper artifact deck pieces from my oloro deck that I took apart, and only lose ability to play some of the cards (those with black obviously). Sphinx tribal might be interesting, and allow the deck to not be as oppressive with the new people with lower powered decks at my lgs. As I like to build with what I have, then trade for upgrades.

I'll give a third vote for Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage . Lots of directions to go with him, and you can get a good build no matter your budget. I'm not a big Azorious player, either, but I do like my Raff deck.

Not that you asked, but here is my current list: Raff's Renewal

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is my vote. Artifact beatdown with a ComboWin backup.

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is essentially Vedalken Orrery in the 'zone, which leads to some awesome shenanigans. I highly endorse it.

if the thing you want is to have a deck focused on flying creatures or spells without good or bad additions, why not make a commander deck? if you already got the colors figured out you could use Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, Azor, the Lawbringer or even Medomai the Ageless. with that combination you got a lot of ways to control the board and protection for your creatures, and add 40 more cards to the deck. Aboshan's Desire, Flood, Tidal Flats, Spirit Bonds, Invocation of Saint Traft, Angelic Favor, Entreat the Angels, Tidal Surge, Decree of Justice, Battle Screech, March of Souls, Descend upon the Sinful, Storm Herd are cards that you could use in commander but not in this deck... if you want to have a reliable way to trigger Sigil of the Empty Throne you can use Flickering Ward, Shimmering Wings, Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Viscerid Armor, Ephara's Enlightenment and others. Aven Mindcensor, Mana Short, Boomerang, Standstill, Magus of the Moat, Bident of Thassa, Sigil of the New Dawn, Hindering Light, Supreme Verdict.

                                                                                                             ooor make a pauper deck edh or a normal one... :P
