Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage Discussion
1 day ago
I run an artifact deck using Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage as the commander, and being able to cast artifacts at instant speed makes for some fun stuff. He might be worth a look.

I recently build my own Sisay list, and I found some cards that are pretty great with her:
Yeva, Nature's Herald is another Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage . As you're already going for WUBRG, Jodah, Archmage Eternal is pretty great. I'd heavily recommend Wilderness Reclamation and Seedborn Muse as well.

I've put together several of the Uncommon Commanders, because I really enjoy them.
My Tatyova, Benthic Druid deck, Tatyova, Land-Matters is probably the best one I have. Of all the uncommon commanders printed, I could see her getting reprinted at rare. She's that good, even with the higher CMC.
I finished up Slimefoot, the Stowaway recently: Slimefoot, the Stowaway, and it is a very solid build, even without the staples like Doubling Season and all those expensive cards. Golgari is my jam, so I really love it, and its very consistent.
My favorite of the bunch is an Azorius build I did with Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage at the helm: Raff's Renewal. His ability allows me to play the bulk of the deck at instant speed, and makes for some fun interactions. Its probably the least consistent of my decks, but the one I like the most.

Idk whether Ephara, God of the Polis is going to be drawing me more than one card per rotation. It’s a lovely card -it does so much work in my blink deck- but drawing one additional card per turn? I think I’d rather just play another “essentially Howling Mine ”.
Scheming Symmetry is already on my radar (I play a bit of two-headed giant). That said, I have NO idea how I just didn’t consider it for this deck!! Thank you for correcting my oversight.

Rout is an instant if you pay 7 for it. Return to Dust could also be fun in this deck. Also, have you thought of making Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage your commander and abusing stax rocks like Winter Orb and Storage Matrix and Static Orb .

EPICSpider23, thank you for the suggestions, as well. I'll address them bit by bit...
Tideforce Elemental does appear that it would be quite helpful. The more I play, I'll see if I need more of that effect, and it may go in. It's added to the Maybeboard for sure.
Lotus Cobra isn't as expensive as it used to be, so I'll consider it, as well. Its just figuring out what to cut.
The other landfall cards are good cards, but I'm not necessarily looking to gain 300 life, so the lifegainers I'll probably pass on (although they would go very nicely in a more landfall-focused build). Guardian of Tazeem has a solid effect, but not sure if I want to wedge that in there. I've got a decent removal package right now, but I'll keep it in mind. I was aware of Tireless Tracker ; I've got a copy I run in a Titania, Protector of Argoth deck. Also a good consideration. At the time of the initial build, it was more than I wanted to pay for a card I didn't have another copy of. Now that I'm fine-tuning, I'm more likely to spend a bit more on a card here and there. The drawfall cards I'm going to pass on; if I switch out too much stuff, then I lose the original theme of the deck with the Moonfolk and land bouncing effects, which I want to keep.
As for the Planeswalkers; I'm not averse to them, I just don't own many of them, and I try to make my initial builds fairly easy on the budget. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner has a decent static ability and a useful loyalty ability, but I'm not sure she's quite worth a spot in the deck. The others, I just don't have.
Now, on to other matters: I really enjoy the uncommon Commanders, too, and have built around several of them; Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , Slimefoot, the Stowaway , and am currently working on a Tiana, Ship's Caretaker build. I'd love to see your Hallar, the Firefletcher build. I like him, and think he's worth a build, but am just curious as to how consistent he is for you, and how you manage the kickers, etc. Looking forward to your reply!
