Raiders' Wake Discussion

MeetTheMayhem on Admiral Beckett Brass

I thought I would comment as I also chose a Pirate Tribal deck as my first EDH deck which I built about 4 months ago Pirate Tribal Final. It took me some time to work out what direction I wanted to go in with the deck, being Grixis, a preference to one or two colours seemed sensible. Also, pirates are sneaky and like treasure and stealing, right?

I chose to focus on Blue, using evasive abilities to enable me to sneak pirates past blockers, gaining benefits such as card draw from Bident of Thassa and steal the permanents of my opponents with Admiral Beckett Brass . I also went for a treasure subtheme, using cards such as Revel in Riches , Brass's Bounty and Mechanised Production to rapidly generate treasures, either as win-cons or for high-cost spells such as Insurrection or Kindred Dominance .

At the moment, your deck is about equally balanced between all three colours, with limited mana fixing (which treasures would help with), therefore you might stall early by drawing the wrong combination of colours. I would maybe try and lean a bit on one subtheme/colour, more than the rest. Also, you have a number of weak cards in the deck at the moment, Lightning-Rig Crew , Wily Goblin , Sentinel Totem , Smelt , Act of Treason , Fevered Visions , Navigator's Ruin , Raiders' Wake etc. to name a few. Additionally, you use a lot of cards to tap opponents creatures, rather than making yours evasive/unblockable. Many of those cards aren't providing sufficient power to justify their inclusion.

TLDR: I think you are trying to do too much and therefore your deck is spread too thin in important areas. I would pick a specific game plan and build around it.

Where's the Megrim , Raiders' Wake , Waste Not , and Fell Specter ?

I also think Bloodchief Ascension , Quest for the Nihil Stone , Shrieking Affliction , and Library of Leng have major places in this deck.

Also have you considered Archfiend of Ifnir ? You do have a cards that make you discard as well.

There's a few others I'd suggest but instead I'll leave a link to my discard deck with Nath, it has some things I think you might like. Thought Scour Nath!

I agree with a lot of the suggestions that other folks have made. I also have a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker deck, Idle Hands, I built mine specifically around forcing discards. Whispering Specter is a great card in a Shirei deck, it creates a threat that forces people to choose what’s scarier, the commander or the discard triggered by infect damage, pair that up with things like Megrim . Raiders' Wake and Waste Not and those discards get painful! Tree of Perdition is also nice as you can, if it’s not blocked, change the entire boards life total one at a time to 13. I definitely need to follow your example and add more protection for Shirei to my deck. My most recent, and as of right untested, addition is Aether Vial , a free creature is never something to sneeze at!

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.
