Brass has had enough of hate. Help needed for Pirate Tribal.

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Aug. 20, 2019, 2:30 p.m. by BMHKain

As this was a part of a topic w/ more lists in the same forum posts, I decided to separate them for nothing; or, maybe some cause...

Why does so many hate Pirate Tribal? I personally believe as a Tribe, they're only getting better overtime. This is one of my decks suffering to see what cards in the Maybeboard (Hot Seat) that deserve a second chance in the deck. Whilst I have some Raid effects here, I never thought about Explore effects; they just are that good, but why did I exclude them? Here is what I want for this deck:

  1. What cards to use in Grixis that can help w/ this tribe?

  2. What are the best cards w/ explore in this tribe?

  3. What suggestions do you have to stop decks against your Aggro?

  4. What other cards would you suggest? & how to work cards like Timestream Navigator & other kinds of cards in this case?

  5. Is Angrath, Minotaur Pirate needed here? What about Angrath's Marauders ? A one-sided Furnace of Rath on legs should be fine, right?

&... that's all I'm asking for now. The deck already is at 100 (I think?), but the Hot Seat is there as a beacon for Room for improvement. Remember that. I'll get to you later; I never thought a place for multiple decks in one post IS a Phail...

I always thought "Pirate Minotaur" sounded like a poorly delivered insult imo.

I think Break Through the Line is worth thinking about to promote evasion and getting raid triggers and such.

In my deck (which I have yet to use, I must admit) I'm using Bazaar Trader and Starke of Rath .

They are fun cards and with the treason subtheme that pirates (and Beckett in particular) have, I think they can do some interesting things for the deck.

Depending on how hard you end up leaning towards treason effects, Captain's Hook and Makeshift Munitions could be thematic ways of disposing of temporarily stolen creatures.

Also, depending on how many goblin pirates you run, Goblin Matron might be a nice extra tutor. It can also tutor for Goblin Welder , which can turn treasures into artifacts from your graveyard.

I also see that you've included Trove of Temptation . I don't think it fits. The treasures per turn are slow and you will often find yourself attacking with a lot of your creatures, so being attacked every turn is a conflicting strategy.

Anyhow, this is my list, maybe you'll see something you like.
