I've been testing a Balustrade Spy / Undercity Informer dredge- I feel like this is likely the fastest goldfish, but depending on how prevelant land destruction is in the format it might not be viable as it relies on tutors like Traverse the Ulvenwald to get lands out of your library. In that list, narcomoeba is an all-star.

I've also considered building a Timestream Navigator package into it so you can just combo out with creature tutors, but card slots are tight.

Basically, every modern player with a pet brew will be trying to shoehorn it into a new format. And all the things that were stopping them being played aren't in that format. Except thoughtsieze, which everyone has.

I'm expecting pseudo-combo Rally the Ancestors 'drain you for twenty' lists, Jeskai Ascendancy /emry (which doesn't really care about artifact destruction because it only wants it for the untap), Saheeli, Sublime Artificer artifact cloning shenangians, Timestream Navigator / Traverse the Ulvenwald / Mystic Sanctuary , elf ' Beck ' lists, etc.

I'm pulling Soulfire Grand Master off of the shelf. I'm wondering about Eldritch Evolution on Hooting Mandrills . Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Creeping Chill in a format with Undercity Informer and Balustrade Spy .

All the janky lists which just needed one more thing. These first few weeks are going to be wild. Like early modern, with 24/7 storm.

BMHKain on Help Wanted for Admiral Beckett ...

BIG UPDATE: Recently finished some decks, & this one's next.

Remember what I said about Timestream Navigator Earlier? Well, I also ponder how many useful Targets Helm of the Host has; & what's it good for? Well, I though a lot about it: How many uses for it are there? & IF this is meant to be Flavor-Tribe Based, what about the Deceit? Broken Alliances to benefit yourself? You know, what famed Pirates like Edward Teach (Blackbeard), & even Fictional Examples like Ol' Cap'n Jack Sparrow (Sorry for the references; I just hope those two examples are well known at least...)? That said, I've 2 questions; one will be in the OP, so 1 for now. Is the following combo Legitimate?: Helm of the Host + Timestream Navigator ? I'll update the OP after.

Thanks for all the help thus far BTW! ;D

Back again. I just wanted to know just one thing: Timestream Navigator requires her to be at the Bottom of the Library as a cost to make infinite loops of Extra Turns.

From there, Assembly Hall is out; Who has a 2nd copy of any card that's not a Basic, or if the rules text bypasses thus as easily?

Token creation cards like Soul Foundry & Mimic Vat won't work. Timestream Navigator would have to be DEAD before Imprinting her.

Which leaves us w/ Feldon of the Third Path & Followed Footsteps . If neither work so well either; then the Navigator will be thrown overboard w/ a leftover Naval Mine.

So who will it be?

Feldon of the Third Path ?


Followed Footsteps ?

I'd love to know your answer, please respond soon...

Back. Well, I'm still in a pickle for this situation:

A: Throw Timestream Navigator overboard, thus her cut.

B: Keep her as an Infinite Turn Combo; w/ one of the following:

Assembly Hall

Feldon of the Third Path

Followed Footsteps

Mimic Vat

Soul Foundry

Not counting the Kiki/Twin duo, this is all I can think of. What's the best choice as well as being flavorful? Why I say "Flavorful"? Several users on this site actually wanted this to be as Flavorful as possible. But what is truly good here? Is going Flavorful too much? If so, what line to draw?

@Caerwyn: Alright. It got chopped. I'd mention anything else, but I guess the only thing I can say is that I currently have 10 cards left to cut. I dunno what to cut; nor should I decide Timestream Navigator 's fate; which depends on one of the following to use:

Assembly Hall

Feldon of the Third Path

Followed Footsteps

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker

Mimic Vat

Soul Foundry

Splinter Twin

Right away, I'm cutting the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Splinter Twin choice from this as they are too OP, & less Flavorful.; but is this really a DEATH Trigger, is opposed to a Bottom-Deck Trigger that Navigator already has. I just want to know how this works.

That said, Timestream Navigator 's place would be decided in one of 2 options:

A: Kick her Overboard

B: Find out how this 2 Card Combo Works; & be thematic about it.

I think I said enough, but just in case, either Navigator gets chopped, or I find out how a Death Trigger can work for infinite Turns.

I'll zip it from there. I'd like other's thoughts about this. :/

I'm just going to have to go for an update here.

No response since this was edited. I've since added Piracy , which seems Flavorful enough; & using your Opponent's Lands as Mana of your own? Pretty friggen awesome. Anyone else have an idea for Timestream Navigator Infinite Extra Turns; what 2nd piece would not only work great, but is also Flavorful like you guys want it to be?

Thanks, even though nobody helped thus far... :(

Brass' Codex of Complex Outerversal Type Lavishing

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


(Sometimes, even a Lead of their Ship needs some backup; even if the First Mate is a complete Dumbass...)

NOTICE BEFORE QUESTION: Throughout development of this deck, a lot of you actually wanted Admiral Becket Brass as a Tribal Deck to be more true to actual Pirates, especially flavor in various ways (Is opposed to Tribe Concept in general.), & having good stuff backing up this claim. For this one, FLAVOR in addition to being viable is the Ultimate Fact. Because that's what so many would've wanted.

Q1: This deck is >100 Cards, so this should be a no brainer; what to cut, matey?

Q2: Cards here like Angrath's Marauders , & Timestream Navigator are Pirates w/ more well gimmicked abilities. Angrath's Marauders is like a one-sided Furnace of Rath , But Timestream Navigator is great for a 2-Card Infinite Turns Combo. Flavor-wise, what second piece would be good in a deck w/ her? If she is to stay?

Q3: Is Angrath, Minotaur Pirate truly needed? Maybe I just might not need him; I'd like the opinions of others though...

Q4 FINAL: By this point, to stay true to Pirate Flavor, what other cards to replace for the 100 Card Target; while having quite some Deceit Elements, Earned Trust Breaking for Yourself, Theft, basically anything Grixis can do for personality traits? This is so I can ensure a true to life deck that can be viable in-game.
