Thada Adel, Acquisitor Discussion

If you're into stealing stuff there is always Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Ramp like a boss by getting everyons Sol Rings or Mana Vaults. Throw in some bounce and other theft cards and you're good to go (not sure about combos with her, though)

All great ideas! I run Sylvan Library and Sensei's Divining Top but now I definitely want a Mirri's Guile. til then I think I'll see if I can find a place for Thassa and see if scrying every turn will help move things along.

I just updated the list and put some more fetchlands in, as well as Brainstorm and Thada Adel, Acquisitor as ways to help move things along. I find that pretty much everyone plays blue so the islandwalk is great evasion, and I can snag their mana rocks for my own helping me boost myself along. I am definitely running creature light and sac outlet light so diabolic intent is an interesting choice. I was looking at Austere Command versus Damnation and went with damnation for the exact same reason- AC woulda decimated me. The only problem is, how else do I mass remove enchantments and artifacts?

Thada Adel, Acquisitor - perfect addition to crew, works great for ramp early on, to grab sol rings, and later great for those big artifacts

Reef Worm - I think I like the flavor of this more than the card, but regardless, I put it in my Swashbucklers and Scallywags

Desertion - little expensive for counterspell, but getting someone's creature is great.

Love Expropriate, I am going to have to get one before it gets even more expensive.

NoSoyYucateco I will definitely consider those as options. Sadly I had never heard of Thada Adel, Acquisitor until now lol as for the draw it could use a tiny bit of work. The draw cards involved now work decent but getting more in there would help a lot.

Yeah, it's a great list. Only things I can think might be worth including are Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Memnarch.

How have your draws been? I would consider swapping Mind Spring for Recurring Insight. It will always get you more for less.

So I am loving the idea of a pirate deck.. because of you I am now mulling over building one. I am adding Rogue's Passage to my build. Works great with Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Kukemssa Pirates

Haha I'm glad to know I have a previous life twin Argeaux.

I came up with a list of potential commanders organized by the Multiplayer Tier List

Tier 2

Thada Adel, Acquisitor - Can steal artifacts which is nice (Sol ring!). Is mono blue so I have a lot of cards for it. Seems cool.

The Mimeoplasm - One of the first decks I tried to make but failed due to the mana base. I am willing to make this again with a cheaper (slower) mana base. Can be fun because he changes depending on who I am up against

Tier 3

Thassa, God of the Sea - The second deck I tried to make but failed because it sucked. I LOVE Thassa, but I feel there is no real direction for this deck and there is no chance in hell of it ever winning anything. Mono blue aggro anyone? lol

Xenagos, God of Revels - Ramp into fattiest and beat face. Simple linear strategy, has artifact enchantment and creature hate.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury - Seems fun because I can grab different stuff depending on who I'm up against. Mono black is also my favorite in EDH

Tier 4

Ashling, the Extinguisher - Again, I love mono black. Add some unblockable and possibly some equipments and watch hell unleash

Cao Cao, Lord of Wei - Mono black, what a surprise. Opponents love drawing, so we should make them discard! On the fence about this one because he's useless if the opponent has no cards in hand

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni - I love the artwork and graveyard plunging seems fun!

Rosheen Meanderer - Green ramp with X red damage. Simple yet fun

Thoughts on this list?

Ooh, interesting! :) I tried to build something like this once, though it never fully came together.

My first thoughts for additions would be Braids, Conjurer Adept, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Gather Specimens, Cultural Exchange, Reins of Power, Propaganda, Control Magic, Knowledge Pool, Hive Mind, and Eye of the Storm (if you really hate other people).

In terms of 1-to-1 card swaps, I'd normally prefer to play Aethersnatch or Commandeer over Desertion :)

I generally don't like Frost Titan as a finisher. Your finishers are stolen from your opponents anyway.

Rings of Brighthearth seems weird here. Is there a combo (beyond Basalt Monolith) that I'm unaware of?

And finally, I'm hesitant to give advice like this, but I might try running Braids, Conjurer Adept as your commander instead. It'll give you more reliable targets for your copy effects :)

Can I tag you for some help on a new deck I'm trying out? :)
