Storm Fleet Aerialist Discussion

poopiepoopiepants1 on UR a Pirate!

Yeah, I was thinking about Favorable Winds. However, I'm not sure that there is enough space in the deck for it and I don't like how it doesn't hit all my guys (unlike Fell Flagship).

I have been mistaken! Kaladesh only rotates sometime September 2018 so I think I will try to get some Kari Zev, Skyship Raider. I think I'll try 2-3 copies of her and am thinking of replacing Storm Fleet Aerialist with her. What are your thoughts on that?

I do have Shocks and Magma Sprays in paper so I think I can put some in, but the problem is, what do I cut? Should I cut Opt and then just stick with Chart a Course for draw? Or maybe the other way around because Opt also lets me scry? I'm undecided.

I actually never considered Perilous Voyage before so thank you for bringing it to my attention. But the issue remains: what would I drop?

Again, thank you for the help Pabs4444!

Angrath, Minotaur Pirate, is not a legal commander because it is not a creature. Only Planeswalkers which specifically delineate that they can be used as a commander (example: Teferi, Temporal Archmage), or when they start as a creature (example: Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip).

Another rule of commander is that all cards in the deck must exclusively fall within your commander's colour identity. Colour identity includes both the colorus to cast the spell, and all mana symbols in the text box. Even assuming arguendo your commander is legal (though it is not, as established herein), its colour identity would be Red and Black. Thus, you can only play cards with Red or Black colour identities.

I am well aware Boros Reckoner can either be red or white. Its colour identity is both Red and White--as such, it would be illegal with a Rakdos commander.

The following cards, would also fall outside Rakdos' colours, and thus would not be permissible:

You also cannot use any lands which have non-Red/Black symbols in their rules texts. Vivid Creek, Island, Dimir Aqueduct, Dismal Backwater, Swiftwater Cliffs, and Izzet Boilerworks are all no-goes. The same is true of artifacts, so Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, and Sky Diamond cannot be used. While Fellwar Stone can produce non-Red/Black mana, because it does not have mana symbols in it, its colour identity is colourless, and can thus be used in any deck.

I think that covers everything. There might be more that I missed. I hope this proves helpful.

You may want to consider taking out the Fell Flagship as you have stated that it is not very good for attacking as it will likely die in the attack. The card also does not count as a pirate it self meaning you could run into awkward moments where you don't have enough creatures to attack with to trigger Brass. I would recommend removing these in favor of 2 more flying pirate style cards as you seem light on creatures overall and they are the easiest to sneak into your enemy overall. You could use either Storm Fleet Aerialist or Skyship Plunderer. Both can be useful in their own rights, but I would lean more on the Aerialist out of these options as you don't use an counters yourself.

You may want to put one basic mountain into the deck in case you activate Field of Ruin and still have no red sources.

Like the flavor of your deck. Best of luck with it.

I see what youre saying. I even get the Torment of Hailfire thing now.

If Trespasser's Curse isnt in play by turn 4, you can flip Dowsing Dagger, swing, and get a ton of mana for Torment of Hailfire as a secondary win condition.

Im going to try Aethersphere Harvester instead of Storm Fleet Aerialist so that I can hit it with Refurbish and Glint-Nest Crane.

No Hostage Taker saves me money too so... lol

Okay, I have my questions together lol.

How come no Hostage Taker? And I kinda miss Aviary Mechanic since it can bounce the Dowsing Dagger. Wouldnt these two work well with Siren's Ruse?

I completely get Strategic Planning with Refurbish. I also get Kinjalli's Sunwing. Cast Out makes sense to me too. Im not sold on Storm Fleet Aerialist though.

Thanks for putting this together. Im learning!

I'm starting to feel like doing more testing that Dowsing Dagger + Panharmonicon is working against you a lil at times. Being it makes 4, 0/2 defenders instead of just 2. Giving them 2 with your limited amount of flying seems kinda bad cause they just end up blocking the guys on the ground with the dagger. I'd say if you want more consistency with the dagger get an all flying crew. Siren Stormtamer is a great start to help keep some guys alive from removal. Storm Fleet Aerialist could definitely find a home here as well or maybe Dreamcaller Siren as his tapping ability could produce the hole for damage so dagger can flip. If you end up stacking on flyers think about running Favorable Winds as well to get your power up for cheap. Also Exactly how budget do you want to keep this? Also. If running the dagger what's the payout? produces all that manna for nothing big really. Look at maybe fitting in a Torment of Hailfire or maybe even a Walking Ballista

Winding constrictor's only interaction is if you have vraska or if ou have constrictor + mimic + another pirate afterwards. That is too much work for a single extra counter. Put 2 more freebooters and 2 more walk the planks instead.

Same with plunderer. Substitute it with a mix of Treasure Map  Flip and Storm Fleet Aerialist maybe.

And also go down 2 lands - substitute with some treasure generator like Dire Fleet Hoarder to get to vraska easier and reducy dependancy on green sources

TupaCuba on U Flash-Flying pirate tempo

Big fan of trying to make Tempo work in standard. I've had a similar list before and found 4 Dreamcaller Siren to be too much, I'd say only 2 Dreamcaller Siren - 3 Vizier of Many Faces is a good budget option.

Why play Skyship Plunderer? I think Storm Fleet Aerialist is the only target and pretty weak together and especially by themselves. I'd say 4 Essence Scatter 3 more Spell Pierce and go all in on 4 River's Rebuke which is the only thing keeping armies at bay in this deck.Thanks.
