Raiders' Wake Discussion

Jomphrey on Ten Piece (Pirate Tribal)

Thank you for your thoughts and suggestions! While some of these cards you suggested are ones I would like to have, but they are a bit expensive for the budget. I did like your suggestion on having discard as a way to slow down my opponents. When I started building this deck, I was going to add Raiders' Wake and Heartless Pillage in there, but took them away in the end. I do have Herald of Anguish in my collection, so I can easily add that. I also considered having Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver and Visage of Bolas in the deck, which with making opponents discard cards would be nice addition as well.

I have Vanquisher's Banner and Metallic Mimic in my zombie deck, might move either or both of them to this deck as zombies have already a lot of support for the tribe.

Mechanized Production looks like it could be worth it in the deck.

I'm glad you liked the deck BOOMsquid!

Raiders' Wake has a awesome synergy with this list, the only problem is that it's a worse Megrim or Liliana's Caress due to the higher CMC.

Take a look at Raiders' Wake, Liliana, Defiant Necromancer, I would consider cutting Abrupt Decay for Krosan Grip since the mana costs in EDH can be so high, and I would probably get all of the Strip Mine like lands in there as I could since people will definitely be running Reliquary Tower. Reanimate and Animate Dead could be a lot of fun considering they hit creatures in any yard. Obvi want to get a Bojuka Bog.

Love the originality of this build. +1 just for that. Whatever creature you wind up using the cipher ability of whispering madness on I would also attach steel of the godhead on it as well. If putting them on Zur I suggest adding Diplomatic Immunity to the deck and have it be the first thing you Zur out and attach it to him. Hell, I’ld put that on Zur wether you plan on attaching the others to him or not. Also consider any or all of these ideas that punish them for all the discarding that will be happening:

The rest can all be zured out making it easy to punish for the discarding.

Really unique idea, love it!

I have a few things i would do differently, let me know what you think.

1). Fell Specter seems a bit weak mainboard here, Only 1 card really synergises with it, Arterial Flow. Once this creature has used its ETB then its very weak, and I feel there should be a better option. Personally I would remove them all and add in x3 Raiders' Wake and x1 Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. My reasoning for this would be that you'r gameplan revolves around attacking with creatures anyway with Vicious Conquistador, Tattered Mummy and lots of flyers mean this card should always trigger. And the arguel's allows your deck to draw some cards as it looks like it might run out of steam quickly, as it has no card draw and lots of low CMC cards.

2). Vraska's Contempt is one of the best cards in standard, but with it being the only instant in your deck, your opponent will know if you are holding this up on thier turn, maybe drop these to sideboard and bring them in for matchups that needs instant speed interaction (izzet drakes) and go for more sorcery speed removal mainboard. +1 Walk the Plank +1 Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. (I could be wrong about this assumption, as i havent played the deck)

3). Card draw seems inportant to this deck and I would try and add a few in somewhere, if you've read my comment up until now, I have added in 2 arguel's blood fasts to give the deck some card draw and although there are several different options, Costly Plunder, Champion of Dusk, Blood Divination i feel that this is probably your best option. Cheap and repeatable.

4). Lastly Arterial Flow seems like one of the biggest pay-offs for going a vampire heavy mainboard, and putting 4 in the maindeck feels right to me.

PaxBuckley on Blaggro discard

I actually had 2 Megrim in my main deck when I started this today. I figured 4 Liliana's Caress would be great, especially with it’s low Casting cost. I’ll definitely look into Raiders' Wake now that you mention it. Thanks!

Megrim is another Liliana's Caress for one more mana, and Raiders' Wake costs two more but forces your opponent to discard if you attack with creatures. Both are budget enchantments that would stack up discard damage in this deck, which I think would needed late game to close it out when they may be top decking and only discarding every few turns.

Thanks for the comment and suggestion. I've been looking over a few things, and yeah, it is lacking some creatures, but almost none of them have what I want that synergies well with it. I'm going to try this, by adding some Ruin Raiders and move the Raiders' Wake to the sideboard so it can interchange with Fell Specter depending on if I'm playing against Aggro or Control. However, there is a good chance I'll just shelve this deck until Ravnica Allegiance releases and will have a bigger pool of Rakdos cards available.
