The addition of blue give a New dimension to the deck... The synergy of Skyship Plunderer with the deck is amazing. Also with all the artifacts in the deck, Tezzeret the Schemer give a new winning opportunity. I was also able to fill the sideboard with Ceremonious Rejection... A must in the format.

Benzilla11 Thanks for commenting and suggesting Skyship Plunderer. It is indeed better than Thrummingbird with the +1 attack. I prefer Sage Owl over Augury Owl since it has scry 4 instead of 3 & it has the same mana cost. I've done my best to cut down on noncreature cards where possible but let me know what would you take out.

For your deck, good idea on using Mulldrifter as a draw engine. It might be hard to get Ula online with only 2 scy options. I suggest searching on Gatherer or a site you prefer on creatures that Ula can play for free. I did that and in my opinion there aren't many good ones.

I'd be willing to pay slightly more for the Chasm Skulkers, as it's really not a big deal since they're barely that bad, and has such a good synergy with Skyship Plunderer. Plus Stratus Dancer is very important to that effect as well, and a counter is always very nice, allowing us to bluff alongside Gudul Lurker (who also synergizes with Plunderer). Wretched Gryff could be a decent way to trigger Skulker's death trigger for ourselves, and Horribly Awry is a very good counter for the deck, to compliment the coverage Dancer gives us on noncreatures and aggro creatures.

First off, sweet deck! and I appreciate that you're trying to moderate the power level of your decks so you can have fun with your friends (after all, that's what MtG is about).

You've got the shell to a lot of cool combos here, but in my estimation you're lacking some finishing power. To that end, I might add some 1/1 counter synergy like Vorel of the Hull Clade, Master Biomancer, Ridgescale Tusker, and some of the new AER cards. Champion of Lambholt is also effective, I've found.

Maulfist Revolutionary and Skyship Plunderer are the kind of cards you should be looking for, I think. Those will give you explosive turns with energy.

That was just a really quick glance through, so let me know if you've got any questions or if I can be of help in any other way! Good luck!

Just as a general rule you usually don't want to have a ton of cards that you only have one of in the sideboard. The sideboard should be tailored to the current good decks in standard. Also I'm not really sure that Aetherflux Reservoir does much for you since you don't have a ton of lifegain. I think Part the Waterveil doesn't have enough upside for you, so I would probably take that out. I might also add a little bit of ramp seeing as you're playing a lot of spells that cost a fair amount. I might add some Oath of Ajanis in here because I feel like they could do a lot to help with casting the planeswalkers and buffing your creatures. Oath of Gideon is good, but I'm not sure if it has enough upside for you as I think making planeswalkers cost less would do more for you than making them enter with another loyalty counter in a deck that has so many. You're also in blue so maybe throw in a counter spell or two to help. Skyship Plunderer is okay for this deck but I think there are some things you could add that would be better, maybe even a one drop to have something to do on turn 1. Also I might take out Linvala, the Preserver because it seems like you were trying to do a side theme of lifegain, but none of your planeswalkers gain you life, so I think you should get away from that. I do like the deck though and if you have any questions feel free to ask me!

So, clearly, this deck is no longer "standard", and the casual nature of this deck prevents its use in modern. However, with the birth of frontier, this deck may yet again rear its ugly head! A few modifications have been made to make it frontier-legal, with a couple other changes added to lower the price of the deck to back under $15 (the price increase of Chasm Skulker put it over the limit.)


-4 Hypnotic Siren, +4 Faerie Miscreant: Not a big change, and the Faerie can grab us more cards.

-2 Bident of Thassa, +2 Ongoing Investigation: While nowhere near as good as Bident, Investigation is the closest thing we've got in frontier.

-4 Voyage's End, +4 Unsubstantiate: Honestly, I would make this change even if I wasn't being forced to by frontier's set limitations. Exchanging a scry 1 for a pseudo-Remand is fine by me.

-4 Dissolve, +4 Void Shatter: The next best counter spell available, barring the overpriced Disallow.

-3 Palace Familiar, +3 Skyship Plunderer: While the bird is still legal in frontier, the pirate is simply better; +1/+0 and the ability to multiply counters seems better then drawing when it dies.


-3 Chasm Skulker, +3 Cloudform: It's not ideal, but there isn't much else for three mana in frontier that fits the deck and doesn't push the cost over $15.


-4 Stratus Dancer, +4 Dimensional Infiltrator: I just prefer flash and the weird self-bounce effect over megamorph in this deck. But that's just me, these two are interchangeable.

Splashing blue just for Skyship Plunderer?

I think Aether Hub would help you fix your mana up a bit. 2 if at the very least 1 could help you with converge. You might also enjoy Skyship Plunderer.

Really like the idea- +1 :)
