Storm Fleet Aerialist Discussion

I would suggest adding the Aether Swoopers the Goldfish deck had back in. This way you have more artifact options for Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp. To make room for this card I would suggest cutting Nimble Obstructionist or Curator of Mysteries. The reason I suggest these as potential cut options is to help reduce the mana cost of duck to make cards like Storm Fleet Aerialist be able to be played with the raid trigger easier and allow you to get more creatures on the board faster so Favorable Winds has more impact.

Best of luck with the deck.

If thats all youre missing from the list then Storm Fleet Aerialist can fill the spot.

Deciding what to take out to put in rigging runner will take some testing. The prime candidate i'd pick is Fanatical Firebrand because a 2/2 on turn 1 is just too good to pass up in my opinion. You'll have to see how much removal you end up with after refining your deck and decide if it's worth keeping Firebrand over something with more removal influence like Walk the Plank, or some 2-drop pirates, like Kitesail Freebooter or Storm Fleet Aerialist.

thank you Mice_Overseer and razelfark for the awesome feedback!

I will test replacing Radiant Destiny with Curious Obsession.

I love the advice on replacing Siren Lookout with some permutation of Kitesail Freebooter and Storm Fleet Aerialist thanks for the 2 drop reco's - will test now.

razelfark, I'd love to listen to more ideas!!

Thanks again.

Interesting deck idea you have going here. I am always a fan of flying pirates and other favorable winds style decks.

My problem with your design is that you really have no need for Radiant Destiny as it just complicates your mana base and slows you down for having too many anthem effects. The card slot would be better off changing some form of board control like Fatal Push, Lightning Strike, or Lookout's Dispersal.

Another card I am not to fond of is Siren Lookout. For a three cost potential 2/3 flier, it is lacking for an aggro deck. I would cut in favor of more Kitesail Freebooter and/or Storm Fleet Aerialist . Reason for the Aerialist is that as a 2 cost for same base stats and is easy enough to make it trigger as a 2/3. It also being that one mana cheaper helps you agress faster by being able to drop more on the board sooner.

As for side deck I always make sure to have Lost Legacy when I play black just because there are enough combo decks being played and/or Second Sun decks. Being able to remove a key card to a combo or a card that just says I win the game (Approach of the Second Sun) on turn 3 is usually going to make things a lot easier.

I have a few more suggestions, but not the time to post atm. If you are interested I will try to post them later.

Maybe add some Storm Fleet Aerialists, and increase the number of Opts. Censor is great countermagic when they don't know that you have it, since people tend to play their win conditions the turn their mana allows them to. Navigator's Ruin is another nice card to mill for 4 often. Lastly, consider Winds of Rebuke. Nice deck, keep up the good work, and I hope my suggestions are beneficial.

Looks like it's been a minute since you've been active on this deck, but I've been messing around with a similar build, so it's nice seeing yours in comparison. I went full-boat flying pirates with Storm Fleet Aerialist, Skyship Plunderer, Dreamcaller Siren, and Favorable Winds in the mix as well. However, what elevates the deck is just a sneaky-good common from Kaladesh: Subtle Strike.

With Warkite Marauder it becomes a Hazoret the Fervent-killer (or anything else non-hexproof). Not only that, it adds a +1/+1 counter, which you can start ticking up with Skyship Plunderer. Even without these synergies, it's still a very capable card that's just about on-par with Moment of Craving, which has been seeing Standard play. I'm having so much fun with this deck and it's throwing my FNM for a loop.

I have thought about Hostage Taker and will probably 2 or 3 in, just need to figure out what to replace to put them in. Right now they are sitting in a U/B Control Deck, but I am enjoying this deck a bit more each time I play it. I feel like dropping the 4 Storm Fleet Aerialist, putting 2 Hostage Taker in and then maybe using the remaining 2 card slots to round out a few of the other cards, just to up their draw rate. Alternatively I could use the remaining 2 slots to put something else entirely; thoughts on this?
