Rigging Runner Discussion

xhuggels on Rakdos Munitions

so Fanatical Firebrand is basically a mini munitions himself that doesnt cost anything. if you drop him on turn 1 you could get 2-3 damage out of him, and even if you top deck him, hes a 1 for 1 damage, which isnt great, but he would be that anyway. Id rather drop the Grasping Scoundrel for something like the buccaneer or Rigging Runner, which would be a better top deck.

Pirate's Pillage is there to help both ramp Angrath's Marauders and find them. I hate how red decks always run out of cards. top-decking is never good unless you have a Hazoret the Fervent in play.

I honestly think Makeshift Munitions doesn't quite do enough to win you the game, but, if you can double the damage that comes from it it becomes real scary real fast, and Angrath's Marauders is the only card that does what it does. Lightning Strike is a 6 damage nuke, in retrospect now that i read it again, i thought Sword-Point Diplomacy would potentially deal 18 damage through angrath, but damage isnt dealt to the opponent, they pay life, so im down to swapping that out for another Ruin Raider

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider is an auto include if but for 1 reason, when i build decks, i build them cycle proof, meaning i dont use the set that will cycle out next. I like the Hijack idea, and i think if i added Fathom Fleet Captain, would definitely consider Dire Fleet Neckbreaker over Angrath's Marauders, but then what do i replace? dont think there is a spot for both in the main-board, but maybe it can be a side-board option.

Captain Lannery Storm completely negates Makeshift Munitions i believe, as im pretty sure the sacrifice they are talking about is when treasure sacks to itself for manna. so you have to choose between pumping the captain and getting manna or doing damage. I dont like the idea of throwing away my win-con to pump a creature that can get fatal-pushed in the face. If she had trample, sure, but not like this. i think she is overrated tbh.

Hey. Where you able to attend Prerelease. If so, did you get any of the pieces you need for the deck? Looking forward to knowing how it turns out! Also, will Rigging Runner be making a return in the deck? Also, Storm Fleet Sprinter could definitely make a 4 of in the deck. Unblockable is huge, especially with haste. Also, Fiery Crusade seems great. I'd suggest it as a 4 of in your side board. Maybe with a few Captain Lannery Storm.

I see. The curve still needs less two-drops (Hazoret the Fervent would be nice if not on a budget), and Lannery Storm is pretty much instead of adding more Crashers, which would not be possible. I also forgot to mention that Bomat Courier is far better than Rigging Runner in aggro, so I would replace one Runner with a Courier.

Any time! I love your deck. Super creative name and great concept. I even like the Rigging Runner in a deck like this. I 100% Agree on Daring Buccaneer and Siren Stormtamer. Stormtaker may be worth taking out after game 1 depending on your game 1, but definitely deserves that mainboard spot. However, that may change because of your meta. With a lot of ramunap red in your meta, Soul-Scar Mage may eb a good option. Especially with typical burn spells like Shock or Magma Spray. Now, I know those are not in Ixalan. Do you have any cards from a standard set other than Ixalan? Amonkhet rotates after kaladesh block. Lookout's Dispersal seem's like a crucial card in your deck with your meta. Maybe more of that than Opt. Maybe Perilous Voyage could be included against Ramunap Red. Favorable Winds also seems very good in this deck.

I'd move the kitesail to sb and run Rigging Runner in main for the potential 3x 2/2 drops by end of turn 2.

First of all, thank you for commenting Pabs4444!

Second, I am definitely trying to get Unclaimed Territory, however, they are extremely hard to find. If I can find some, I definitely will put 'em in! :)

I hear you on the many one-drop issue and I am addressing it. Obviously, Siren Stormtamer, I feel, is a must in any Blue pirate deck - so I want to keep him in. Also, Daring Buccaneer is SUCH a nice first turn guy so he is staying. That leaves Rigging Runner and Fanatical Firebrand getting cut from the deck. To replace these, I am looking at Dire Fleet Daredevil.

About Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, I really wanted to keep this Ixalan-block only since rotation is just around the corner (sometime in April) and I don't think it is worth draining my life force to find some (because there are A LOT of Ramunap Red decks where I play). However, if I do stumble upon some, I will try and test them out - see how they do.

Concerning sideboard, I would really appreciate some help. I am not 100% sure what this deck will struggle against so I would DEFINITELY like some help.

Again, thank you so much for commenting.

Lightning Strike needs to be in the mainboard. You also have 3 Glorybringer in the side as well as 2 in the mainboard. Look up a ramunap red decklist for some pointers, but you will likely need to remove some creatures for better ones. Earthshaker Khenra is better than Nest Robber but also much more expensive. I like Rigging Runner it is a decent card. You should get some Sunscorched Desert and Ramunap Ruins 4 of each for some extra value, maybe even some Desert of the Fervent to help with top decking. To be as helpful as possible I think you have 2 routes to go. 1st, drop the dinosaur subtheme and go full aggro. You arent running many that need cost reduction, and Charging Monstrosaur is a good top end. This would free up a good many spots that could be filled with strong threats like Ahn-Crop Crasher and the long forgotten Fleetwheel Cruiser. The other route would be to add green and go full on dinosaurs. This way would be very fun, but would probably end up costing more. Post if you would like assistance with one way or the other.
