Milling Pirates

Standard*

Bodyrocker89


Description

Pirate themed creature mill deck to make use of Navigator's Ruin.
Keep Siren's Ruse handy to protect troops/draw a card/unflip an attacked creature to block the next turn.

If your opponents get wise to your milling tactics, simply switch out the mill cards for the sideboard including Favorable Winds and you have a version of favorable pirates that does not rely on mill at all!

as the main goal for your creatures is to trigger raid, wouldn't Slither Blade be better? I know it wouldn't be strictly on theme, but it just seems so much better than Dreamcaller Siren for example

marowakcity I considered it, but reading the card again, you don't need to do damage, just simply attack. For the main deck, doing damage does not matter, just need to trigger the raid. When we switch to the sideboard, Slitherblade is pretty pointless at that point. I think SB works well in the Dowsing Dagger  Flip builds.

the reason that unblockable is good is because you don't have to worry about blockers killing your attackers. also since having multiple creatures attacking doesn't do anything, 4 drop creatures don't really make sense

Good point, we can switch them around and place the 4 drop flyers in the sideboard if we need to change to the Favorable Winds build.
