Walk the Plank Discussion

MagicalHacker on How many male pirate captains ...

18 hours ago

Walk the Plank shows that Captain Thorn is also male.

Thanks everyone! Definitely got some good ideas for Halloween costumes from this! I'm thinking Chart A Course is showing Captain Parrish...

Doom blade not really, as most vampires, zombies (where you would swap out Victim of Night) are black. Walk the Plank could be used if I want to go outside of casual.

Dismember is nice vs indestructibles but Tragic Slip already accomplishes this.

Ultimate price is nice.

Which kill spells you run mostly come down to what your local meta is. Victim of Night is currently good enough for me.

Dash Hopes is nice as a way to have something against artifacts and enchantments, or just as 2 mana 5 damage. I'll see if that's worth it (now that I have a few cards with 3 devotion, it may be)

Hey there! I unfortunately don't have the time right now to look at everything other users said, though it looks like Argy has some good tips (and if something I say goes against what she says, listen to her).

In any case, I would probably cut Torment of Hailfire, Gifted Aetherborn, and 2 Tezzeret's Touch for another Revel in Riches, a Bontu's Last Reckoning, and probably two Walk the Planks. I would also consider running 2-3 Glimmer of Genius, though I don't know what I would take out; maybe a land and a Spell Swindle.

There's one thing that was said above that I want to address.

"Vraska's Contempt > Walk the Plank"

This is just not true. If you are playing against an extremely Aggro deck, a card like Walk the Plank is going to be of more use than Vraska's Contempt.

The game may be all but over before you get a chance to cast Vraska's Contempt. Walk the Plank may help you stall enough to regain control of the game.

The reason people don't like it is because you can't cast it at Instant speed.

That reason alone is not enough to make a card useless.

Cards I would try to remove from deck because you either lack cards to support them or are just on the weak side:

Embraal Bruiser: lack of artifacts

Graceful Cat: not very strong for its mana cost

Mummy Paramount: lack of zombies to trigger effect

Ruthless Sniper: lack of cycling cards to trigger

Queen's Bay Soldier: there is a white 2 drop that is the same thing but has lifelink (Bishop's Soldier). Would use that over this.

Anointer Priest: not enough token spawning cards. Would maybe keep if you play a set of Oketra's Monument.

Liliana's Defeat: strong vs black, but best not to run cards like this in a mainboard because you never know if your match up will make use of this card from the start.

Getting more of Gifted Aetherborn would help a lot likely.

If possible you may want to also use Walk the Plank unless your friends are playing merfolks.

Hope these suggestions are helpful. Tried to make suggestions that would not brake the bank. Its a nice deck you have there for making it out of a builders kit.

MoGoose831 on Buggin Out - ULTRA BUDGET

Thanks Bigeyoo!!! I'm loving making these decks and love hearing others enjoy them too.

If you are going to build this non budget flush out the mana base with Foul Orchard and a playset of Ammit Eternal. Against decks like Temur and Ramunap, removal is key so including Walk the Plank and Fatal Push

Demogonis on B/W Ixa Standard Vampires

After play testing the deck and coming in 4th at my local FNM, it was apparent that I needed late game support. Right out of the gates, no problem. It's fast and gets going quick. I found that if my opponent stabilized then I had a hard time finishing them off.

So I added the 3 Sanctum Seeker and 1 Vona, Butcher of Magan for a little extra oomph and 2 Walk the Plank to deal with bigger threats. Moved the Bishop of Rebirth to the sideboard. Decided to add Vraska's Contempt to the sideboard rather then main deck. Walk the Plank works almost the same. The contempt is in there in case I have to deal with planeswalkers.

meerkat313 on Vampire rule

I would defiantly take out two Bishop of the Bloodstained and two Anointed Procession for the four of Sanctum Seeker If you don't want to cut the Anointed Processions consider Hidden Stockpile. To top it off you do need some removal so Fatal Push or Walk the Plank. For some odd reason the card link for Anointed Procession isn't working.
