How To Be A Dick For Under $15 (Again)

Standard Aggro Budget Mono-Blue Tempo




My favorite standard deck has resurfaced in pirate form! Mono-Blue tempo augmented by obnoxious evasive creatures to peck away at my enemies while they flounder about helplessly. No Military Intelligence this time around, but Chart a Course works in a pinch.

Skyship Plunderer has great synergy with two of our other pirates: Storm Fleet Aerialist after a Raid trigger, and Siren Lookout after Exploring into a nonland card. Once either of these guys has a +1/+1 counter on it, Plunderer pumps up their stats every time he hits!

Just tried it out on Untap and went 2-0 and 2-1. Works great and beat some more pricey decks!

Maybe try including Siren's Ruse for protection, extra card draw and for retriggering Siren Lookout/Storm Fleet Aerialist?

Awesome list! Might just get me back into Standard. Never liked the idea of dumping $100+ into a deck that'll lose pieces in a few months.

I ran a version of it at fnm and the only problem I had all night was every opening hand I drew only one mana.

I like the budget wins. Looks nice.

Jace, Cunning Castaway would work nice with Skyship Plunderer and the card draw/scrying of the rest of the deck.

It's a budget deck though. So Jace wouldn't work
