Perhaps rather than Vraska the Unseen , I'd go with Black Sun's Zenith .

And without a way to get things back from the graveyard, Grisly Salvage doesn't seem worth it. Instead maybe use Carnifex Demon or Flourishing Defenses .

Also adding blue would give access to things like Deepglow Skate , Skeleton Ship , Vedalken Anatomist , Fuel for the Cause , Corrupted Conscience , Viral Drake , Thrummingbird , and most importantly, Inexorable Tide . Add Thassa, God of the Sea to make your creatures unblockable, while giving a scry each turn, and it seems like it should be an easy.

So overall, I think the deck would be better dropping either dropping green completely and replacing it with blue, or dropping cards like Vraska the Unseen , Golgari Charm , Putrefy , and Scuzzback Scrapper and replacing them with the blue cards mentioned above.

I'm building a lovely EDH deck around Skeleton Ship , thats focused on boat and ship tribal. Its obviously not good, nor is it intended to be. At this point I have all the dimir pirates and any boat creature or vehicle printed, but I need help filling out the rest of the deck! Any particularly fun boat/nautical related cards you can think of that would be a good addition? Also no krakens or sea monsters! They are the enemy! This deck isn't supposed to be good, it's all about the theme!

Why do I need to be complicated all the time.

Whatever, make something that can potentially make Skeleton Ship a viable commander.

Re-posted w/ correct formatting UGH

Couple suggestions:

Skeleton Ship -- Not great, but playable, and good flavor for your deck, if that's something you care about

Mystic Remora -- Excellent card that fits your theme and helps you maintain card advantage, which is important for control decks. Don't be turned off by the cumulative upkeep, you can get a lot of cards with this in multiplayer.

As far as (budget) blue mana ramp, I run:

Drain Power

Energy Tap

You could also consider Thran Dynamo if you wanna spend a couple bucks.

VietMoneys Thanks for the feedback Tim, I'd play Skeleton Ship but it doesn't steal things, it just straight murders! That's not the game plan. I suppose I do need at least one ship for my fleet, though.

Indeed I do need more sac outlets. I was more or less thinking of just stealing stuff for value, but I didn't think to just get rid of something in case of an incoming Cyclonic Rift or bounce effect.. maybe I can add an artifact sac outlet too.

Bitterblossom would be dope, but I'd probably need to add tutors to guarantee that Arcane Adaptation makes its way out.

You salty dog!

Awesome to see this coming together. I'll continue to examine and contemplate.

Where are you aiming on the spectrum of flavor/power? In other words, are you going to play Skeleton Ship, or are you too afraid???

First thing that hops out to me is a shortage of sac outlets. With all of the threaten effects, I sense that these will be a pillar of your deck. High Marketand Goblin Bombardment are both super useful and decently flavorful, and Phyrexian Altar is an absolute all-star for 3+ color decks if you can pony up the cash or proxy it.

Also, get a Zealous Conscripts in there! He's wearing a damn 3-cornered hat, for God's sake!

Good work, Eric. Can't wait to see it in action. Let me know what some of the chase cards are for you and I'll try to trade for them too!
