Walk the Plank Discussion
1 week ago
Hello there, Meurth. The playset of Lightning Strike is mainly there for the spot removal or for direct player damage, though I am considering lowering it to a 2-of in favor of Walk the Plank, Lava Coil or Cast Down. As for Cannonade, I'm still a bit shaky on whether to put it on the mainboard since I think board-wipes are quite a bit of a situational thing for me. I'm still quite catching up on the current standard meta from a ten-month break, so I'm not sure if it's the case right now.

just out of curiosity, why abzan and not just monoblack devotion? you could add Gray Merchant of Asphodel and if you have the money Liliana of the Veil. plus there are plenty of other black removal spells like Go for the Throat or Walk the Plank or Victim of the night. also if you do black devotion you could run Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Really unique idea, love it!
I have a few things i would do differently, let me know what you think.
1). Fell Specter seems a bit weak mainboard here, Only 1 card really synergises with it, Arterial Flow. Once this creature has used its ETB then its very weak, and I feel there should be a better option. Personally I would remove them all and add in x3 Raiders' Wake and x1 Arguel's Blood Fast Flip. My reasoning for this would be that you'r gameplan revolves around attacking with creatures anyway with Vicious Conquistador, Tattered Mummy and lots of flyers mean this card should always trigger. And the arguel's allows your deck to draw some cards as it looks like it might run out of steam quickly, as it has no card draw and lots of low CMC cards.
2). Vraska's Contempt is one of the best cards in standard, but with it being the only instant in your deck, your opponent will know if you are holding this up on thier turn, maybe drop these to sideboard and bring them in for matchups that needs instant speed interaction (izzet drakes) and go for more sorcery speed removal mainboard. +1 Walk the Plank +1 Arguel's Blood Fast Flip. (I could be wrong about this assumption, as i havent played the deck)
3). Card draw seems inportant to this deck and I would try and add a few in somewhere, if you've read my comment up until now, I have added in 2 arguel's blood fasts to give the deck some card draw and although there are several different options, Costly Plunder, Champion of Dusk, Blood Divination i feel that this is probably your best option. Cheap and repeatable.
4). Lastly Arterial Flow seems like one of the biggest pay-offs for going a vampire heavy mainboard, and putting 4 in the maindeck feels right to me.

Hi Ninjew42, thanks!! I like your deck and suggestions a lot.
The haste on Captain Lannery Storm and Fanatical Firebrand is sweet, but I hate they don't have evasion or even pseudo-evasion. It makes turns where I can't attack with them because I don't have a trick, or enough mana open for a trick. I'll test with them and see how they go!
Walk the Plank is an awesome card, except that I play this on MTG:A and run into stupid, stupid, merfolk. The double black mana cost is also really rough, at least until Ravnica Allegiance comes out and Blood Crypt becomes available. I like being able to keep starting hands with double Unclaimed Territory and I fear I'll never be able to play this when I need to.
Lightning Strike is indeed a great candidate and potential way to finish out a game. I've played with it before to great success, but at the moment I favor Lava Coil because it can remove most troublesome blockers, like drakes or phoenixes. Vraska's Contempt is my favorite removal in the format, but it's too slow and expensive for this deck. I love exiling planeswalkers but I think this deck does better by doing damage with its pirates.

I have a similar deck built that absurdly wreaks face. Check it out for some good ideas.
I have a few ideas that will help speed up for deck and make it even better.
- Drop Dire Fleet Captain, Grasping Scoundrel, and Forerunner of the Coalition.
- Add Captain Lannery Storm, and Fanatical Firebrand.
- Walk the Plank is now totally viable as a kill spell because no one plays merfolk except in MTG:A
- I also recommend Lightning Strike for more direct damage and if you can afford it get a few Vraska's Contempt
- I recommend running 4 Bravado and 4 March's and keep Fiery Cannonade as sideboard for token decks.

Well your win condition is stax... without Smokestack...? You control how high it goes based on your token production and watch it munch up their permanents. Price of Glory & Shivan Harvest, or just MLD, seem like they would win you the game if you want to attack lands. If you're going that route a Crucible of Worlds is recommended.
Buried Alive is a relevant tutor you seem to have missed. Your deck seems to lack answers for your opponents strategies that don't involve amassing an army of creatures. Some sort of grave hate like Bojuka Bog or Nihil Spellbomb or efficient. Vandalblast hoses artifact decks and artifact acceleration. Chaos Warp is 's only way of dealing with enchantments. I would cut some of the less efficient board wipes like Life's Finale and Necromantic Selection for room. Also sorcery speed spot removal isn't anywhere as strong as instant speed so I'd lose the Walk the Plank and Dreadbore.

Rzepkanut IMO its worse than Monstrous so far. Usually Monstrosity came with a trigger. It looks like Adapt is just a one time counter, instant speed is nice though. Sure there are counter removal but thats a lot of mana to use for small abilities like redistributing counters. Especially when it looks like removal is going to be huge in standard. Status / Statue, Mortify, Anguish, Assassin's Trophy, Cast Down, Walk the Plank
Anguish is going to be sweet.
Destroy target artifact, creature, or planeswalker.

TrashWolf95 Thank you for your comment and suggestions. 1. I got 4 Cabal Stronghold , which I will include soon. Maybe more Josu Vess would work too... 2. Moment of Craving will leave the deck, but I'm not sure, if I want other removals like Walk the Plank or maybe 2 strong creatures like Josu Vess, Lich Knight
My main issue with most suggestions is, that the card are M19 or older and will leave standard in some months. I don't feel like buying planeswalker for example, if I can't use them for some time. Otherwise Desecrated Tomb, Stitcher's Supplier and Liliana, Untouched By Death are great cards.
Lets hope for some zombie cards in january...
