Raiders' Wake Discussion

Sargeras on Seether [Black Devotion]

I'm not too big on standard, but I can already tell you want to be playing vehicles, Aethersphere Harvester and maybe Heart of Kiran seems like a good fit here. They have synergy with Night Market Lookout and are evasive threats.

Dark Bargain and Raiders' Wake seem really bad here.

I personally like Gonti, Lord of Luxury, as you get access to spells in your opponent's deck. You could maybe even play Yargle, Glutton of Urborg if the board gets cleared.

Conditional discard should be in the sideboard. You want to be mainboarding removal, it's what your color does best.

Vraska's Contempt would be good eventually

Yeah we have very similar builds, but you are missing all of the fun Disco action with cards like Oppression, Painful Quandary, Words of Waste, and Necrogen Mists. Make it hurt with some Liliana's Caress, Megrim, and Raiders' Wake (I'm only using the latter because it's self activated). I thought Muldrotha was the perfect leader for my mass collection of elves so Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Sadistic Hypnotist (honorary elf) fit in my list quite easily and cause people an abundance of pain. Also I'm surprised not many people are catching on... but every Muldrotha deck needs a Primal Surge because who doesn't like puking 1/3 of their deck into play for 10 mana. On a similar note, Genesis Wave also works, but its a bit more recursion friendly as you just mil the instants and sorceries.

I second Torment of Hailfire. It's beautiful when it works. I would also try and up the discard theme! Dark Deals works really well with Raiders' Wake and Megrim, along with your Liliana's Caress. A really fun combo piece is Waste Not which loves when the whole table discards a card - it's hilarious watching your opponents try and figure out how to do deny you mana or cards while keeping their good stuff in hand.

DatBolas on Mogis help?

I've got a Neheb minotaur/discard deck you might be interested in looking at for ideas, here

The first two I noticed were Raiders' Wake and Waste Not, both have been really powerful for me and they are on the cheaper side.

Raiders' Wake seems like it might go well in this deck. Maybe a little high on your curve though?

I'd like to consider myself good at making mtg decks but I don't honestly know how good I am. I can tell you a few things however.

  1. Primal Amulet is a good card, but doesn't fit in the deck. You aren't running enough instants/sorceries to make it good.

  2. You have a good theme going with the raid cards. Do more with them. It's also important to come up with 1, 2, or 3 colors to use and keep your deck focused around those three colors. You obviously like blue, and you could throw in black if you want since you already have some of those. From there, it's mostly about balancing colors. You want to make sure you have pretty much equal amounts of each color so you don't run into mana issues.

  3. Coming off of that, from there you want to come up with a theme and stick with it. You already have a good flying theme, and the raid theme partners well with that, so you could include more cards like Deadeye Tormentor or Storm Fleet Spy. Raiders' Wake could be another strong addition if you wanted.

Cards that I would replace: Air Elemental, Fleet Swallower, Desperate Castaways, Dire Fleet Hoarder, Waterknot and Wanted Scoundrels. These cards are either too expensive or not fitting with the theme.

Good luck making decks and have fun with it most of all. MTG is a game and meant to be fun after all!

Strobasourus Much appreciated! Love the creature recomendations and I'll be using all but Dreamstealer I think. I have a standard deck that was built around it and Raiders' Wake but I wasn't getting enough out of Dreamstealer so I pulled it out.

Strobasourus on Mono Black Hailfire

you've got a good base. I would recommend adding a few more creatures such as Dreamstealer, Guul Draz Specter, Hypnotic Specter, and Liliana's Reaver. Just so you have a bit more defense against other attacking creatures. Also a few good enchantments that you might want: Larceny, and Raiders' Wake
