Raiders' Wake Discussion

purplesandpaper on Tormenting Cards

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll be sure to put in some Ifnir Deadlands, Scavenger Grounds, and Raiders' Wake, and also put three Duress in the mainboard. I think Duress is much better than Kitesail Freebooter.

You should also remove Dire Fleet Hoarder because you're not running treasure. Also, Fraying Sanity could become pretty overpowered when used with Navigator's Ruin and Raiders' Wake. Just putting out there as a potential addition. To me, Deadeye Quartermaster does not feel like it is searching for any essential piece of your deck or any artifact which could drastically change the boardstate/game. So I would personally suggest removing it.

Definitely don't need 40 lands. If you want to still play safe, you can drop to 38. if you want to be a little risky, I think it can work with 35. A lot of good cards, but just because they are good doesn't mean they belong. Avatar of Woe, Trophy Mage doesn't fit to the whole theme. Myr Retriever, Heartless Summoning don't seem needed. Yes, you are milling yourself too, but none of your artifacts are necessary for they deck to function. Your curve is low too, so there isn't a big need for ramp more than the staple rocks. Then, you need to think about lifespan. Creatures die most, then artifacts, enchantments, lands. Next, How are you going to go about playing the deck. It doesn't seem like you will be attacking a lot, if at all. Raiders' Wake fits, but you already have a lot of cards that do the same thing and then some. you wont be triggering Raid a lot if it all.

Compare the CMC to the effect to figure out what else you'd want to take out.

Back to mana... oh boy. Opal Palace is really only good in Voltron with few exceptions. Path of Ancestry works best in tribal, it's pretty much Crumbling Necropolis in here. I think you can live without Exotic Orchard. I didn't see any theft cards in here that require you pay for the card. Mystifying Maze is a worse version on Maze of Ith especially if used on a card with an ETB. You have way to many lands that come in tapped. This deck can be fast, but tapped lands slow you down a lot more than you realize. They aren't worth it unless they have a crazy effect.

Academy Ruins does what Myr Retriever does. Drownyard Temple comes back from the grave. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea more card draw. Mirrorpool might be nice. Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is a staple combo. Thespian's Stage and Vesuva copy lands; something to keep in mind. Throne of the High City might work if you keep yourself protected. Reflecting Pool is too good not to have

Speaking of protection. I think you should really add Propaganda. you might like Primal Amulet  Flip. Find room for Wheel of Fortune, Magus of the Jar.

You'll need to find a balance of single card discard and mass discard. Too much mass discard will wiff, but too much single card discard will be too slow.

It's not fast mana I'm worried about. I'm meant the tutors to ensure I get my Liliana's Caress and Raiders' Wake out quick

I bumped it to 21, a playset of Ifnir Deadlands and threw Raven's Crime in my side board MrJohny, UpperDeckerTaco. Ive also been looking at some tutoring as a viable option to offset the dead draws and help get my Liliana's Caress and Raiders' Wake out a little early. Maybe Diabolic Tutor or Infernal Tutor

If I were you, I would trade Trespasser's Curse for two more copies of Raiders' Wake. If you are forcing your opponent to discard, they probably wont have an opportunity to play many creatures, so I feel like Raiders' Wake would just give you more value overall.
