Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage Discussion

It looks like your Got your divers license? deck... But two cards I feel like could be replaced would be Prismatic Lens and Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage. Raff is okay since there is such an abundance amount of artifacts... but the lens just seems meh. Since you are focusing on the Summoning Station as a win-con maybe Renegade Map? It isn't instant, nor does it put it into the battlefield like Wayfarer's Bauble but it doesn't require more mana to be sunk into it either.

@DrkNinja? Sorry for still nagging you. I just wanted to ask something. Do you think it would be better if I made the final choice? I think I might have an idea for thus, but I just wanted some thoughts for now...

Should I do Demonic Tutor, or Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, or Assassin's Trophy? Thinking of putting 2/3 in... Responses?

TheRoaringRegisaur, thank you for your suggestions!

I want to replace the Take Vengeances with Seal Aways, but Seal Away is fairly expensive money-wise (I relied on draft chaff for the two I included). I might look through my collection and see if I can do that.

Cutting Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage for Thunderclap Wyvern seems like a good idea. I'll probably do that, especially since I don't even have any historic spells for Raff. That said, I'd go up to three copies of Thunderclap Wyvern. What third card should I cut?

Ethereal Armor is a neat include, but I'm still thinking about how it fits together with the deck I'm building.

Please stop putting <36 lands if your ~ CMC is not <3.

I get why you chose Azor for a control build but I don't know if he is the best choice. How you want to play ultimately decides that. Azor is a conundrum because as control you want to leave mana up to answer threats but he wants to attack and draw cards. Other UW options are Ephara, God of the Polis which can be more staxxy w hate-bears; Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper is more spellslinger control w lands like Darksteel Citadel being your win-con; and the new Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage would be more legendary and artifact stax.

Regardless, I like a lot of what is going on. I think you could add more hate-bears like Eidolon of Rhetoric and Hushwing Gryff to passively mess with all opponents. The problem w control is you are trying to manipulate 3 opponents, and 1 spell for 1 answer means 2 others were not answered. Capsize lets you continually bounce problems mid-late game.

Sun Titan could be nice additional value if you build a little around it without detracting from the whole deck. Wayfarer's Bauble and Burnished Hart can come back for more ramp; Mind Stone and Commander's Sphere for extra draw (as you have); Ghost Quarter and Scavenger Grounds for hate; Hope of Ghirapur and Soul Snare can keep the control coming.

I have one more suggestion for you. Swap Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage for Shalai, Voice of Plenty if you can. I know Raff has some good abilitys, but unless you have a lot of mana available your not casting a lot of legendary's at flash speed. Shalai has hexproof for you and all your dudes and can also save a game. Maybe as a side board option.

Hilariously frankensteined together, I love it. +1 from me. Maybe Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage to give the whole team flash?
