I'd like to see a Boros Pillow fort commander

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Legendaries who shouldn't be legendary?

5 months ago

Earl of Squirrel should've been legendary and black bordered...I will die on this hill!

Paeldroth - I agree and disagree. I disagree that Judith, the Scourge Diva is under-powered. I ran a pretty oppressive list built around her for a little while, but she does need some set up before she starts snowballing. Personally, I think they should've given Judith Mayhem Devil's ability. That would've been a great legendary creature.

Now, in response to the OG post: There are tons of legendary creatures that I think shouldn't be legendary based on power-level (cough cough Kamigawa legends cough cough), but that list would be too long. I personally don't think Bladewing the Risen should've been legendary or any of the creature sides of the flip walkers (i.e. Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip). Questing Beast was kind of a swing-and-a-miss as well. If you have read or are knowledgeable about Aurthurian lore then you understand what the Questing Beast is, but if you aren't (which a lot of people seem to be) it's a rather confusing choice. Lastly, my dearly beloved Skeleton Ship is a bit of an odd legendary choice.

Merchant Ship (This is is about $10 on tcgplayer right now I checked)

Talas Air Ship , Pirate Ship , Ghost Ship and Skeleton Ship are super cheap

There you may want to look at vehicles Consulate Dreadnought , Fell Flagship , Dusk Legion Dreadnought , Shadowed Caravel , Silent Submersible . Skysovereign, Consul Flagship , Sleek Schooner and a few more I may have missed.

Also Ixalan and rivals of Ixalan had a lot blue and black pirates and there are a few more other options but I think you could go vehicles and hit your theme on a overall cheap budget

Your myr can leverage the vehicles easily

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!
