Sygg, River Cutthroat Discussion

Giggitygunzerker on What’s Yours is Mine (suggestions pls)

@chirz2792 Thanks for the tips! This is my first attempt at an EDH deck and I wasn't sure if hybrid cost cards could be treated as monocolored or not. Dang, I need a replacement for Sygg, River Cutthroat now. As for Your suggested cards, I agree that they would be fun, but The first two are out of my price range. As for Genesis Wave, I've considered it, and I'm not entirely sold. Pretty much all my big wincon cards that I'd like to cast for free are Nonpermanents, so I'm not sure I'd want to blow a bunch of mana on something that, in a 7 mana GWave scenario, would on average put a maybe a mana source and a control magic onto the battlefield, while potentially putting a spell like Blatant Thievery into my graveyard. Blatant Thievery costs the same as the GWave and a) will give me a stable amount of permanents (barring a boardwipe), b) give me a number of permanents above Gwave average amount of permanents of my choice to play with, while c)also stealing them from my opponents.

Darkshadow327 I will leave a comment on your deck shortly.

I have spent some time updating my Sygg, River Cutthroat deck as I found it was too reliant on trying to convince my opponents to fight each other. I have attempted to make the deck more focused on using evasive threats that continue to draw me cards or just win the game outright. Thanks for taking a look!

Any particular reason for only bringing 2 Aether Vials? Whether you have it or not on your opening hand is determining your whole game plan, and merfolk is a tier 1 deck when it you have it, and a tier 3 deck when you don't.

Also, you can go down to 20 lands (with 2 more vial). Maybe add in a Ghost Quarter or 2.

Squelch is a card I've had piles of fun with, in particular against tron decks (Oblivion Stone, planeswalker activations... no problem anymore), but works fine against anything with a very greedy manabase full of fetchlands too.

You can also play a single copy of Sygg, River Cutthroat. It's just for fun and giggles, but it feels sooooo great when it grabs 3 cards for you in one match.

Not sure that you can cut out the 2 Merrow Reejerey - I think it's better for merfolk than Serum Visions, since you have quite a bit of cantrips already. But maybe it is... how is it working out?

Possibly an "unblockable tribal" deck like Sygg, River Cutthroat? Also, Jace link for the lazy: Jace, Cunning Castaway

I would definitely find a place for Coastal Piracy and Sygg, River Cutthroat

Sygg, River Cutthroat fits really well and seems to want the same thing as Admiral Beckett Brass. Thanks for the great ideas!

Sygg, River Cutthroat fits in pretty well with pirate mechanics and is a pirate in my book. Tezzeret the Schemer also fits in with the treasure theme.

Both my Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Sygg, River Cutthroat decks are salivating at the idea of including Kheru Mind-Eater.
