Hey, I noticed your recent question in the Rules Q&A forum. That forum is best suited to questions about the game rules or card interactions; most other questions, such as which cards perform a certain function or which ones are best in a certain deck, are best asked in one of the other forums. I moved your previous thread for you, but be sure to check out our forum directory to find the best forum (and users) for your next thread!

No problem, Vicious Shadows is an awesome card: thanks for the suggestion.

Cool, I had forgotten all about cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. Changing the creature type to synergize with my deck was not something I had really considered, either.

Counterspells are fine, but it's better for me to have rattlesnake cards that accrue value over time, as opposed to spells that can only be used once.

I like those: in fact I even have Rise of the Dark Realms and Patriarch's Bidding sideboarded, and I have Living Death in my current build, since it both wraths the board and provides recursion.

I'm really more interested in rattlesnake cards that make my opponents hesitant to use boardwipes.

Cards that I've already considered are Bearer of the Heavens , Revel in Riches, Chasm Skulker and Sangromancer.

Specifically, I'm looking for cards that synergize with Admiral Beckett Brass/pirates creatures.

Thanks in advance for your input!

You guys are right: wraths should probably suffice, since I play in a creature-heavy meta.

I was really just trying to expedite the process: I might even be able to flash in Revel in Riches at the end of my opponent's turn with Vedalken Orrery and just win on my upkeep, assuming I have enough treasure tokens.

I'm trying to find cards that interact with Revel in Riches for the purpose of propelling me towards a win-con in my Admiral Beckett Brass deck.

The cards I've come up with so far are: Strionic Resonator, Mechanized Production and Deadeye Navigator for abusing ETB effects on cards like Wily Goblin.

Any additional suggestions would be appreciated.

That's an interesting suggestion that I hadn't considered, but I should have been more specific: I'm looking for an alternate and efficient way to propel myself towards achieving a win-con through Revel in Riches in Grixis colors.

So far I have Strionic Resonator, Mechanized Production and Deadeye Navigator for capitalizing on ETB effects from cards like Wily Goblin.

Perhaps there are also some ways to take advantage of sacrificing treasure artifact tokens, but I couldn't really find any on gatherer.

That makes sense. Thanks again.

Gotcha, thanks a lot.

Cool, thanks for insight.

I had to ask this question because many creature cards have ETB effects, which can seemingly be played in an unfair fashiion, depending on what order the aforementioned creatures are played.

For example, if I play Urabrask the Hidden and someone else decides to play Constricting Sliver, it leaves me at an obvious disadvantage, since I decided to go first.

In some ways, it creates a stalemate, since graveyards are public knowledge, and I have some idea of what my opponent will play.

Is there a rule that determines who plays his/her creatures first?

Said on If I Play ......


I seriously doubt that it would, but I wanted to be sure.

Of course she's a lady: I totally knew that. lol

I feel ya, Steelspike: there aren't a wealth of options right now, but I enjoy the challenge of creating a deck like this.

Either way, Admiral Beckett Brass isn't an OP commander by any stretch, so it'll take some work to abuse his abilities.

I thought piracy was a career choice, not a form of life. lol I'm glad to hear that I'm wrong, but I wanted to make sure.

Just to understand, Dire Fleet Ravager would have two creature types, correct? Both orc and pirate?

October 9, 2017 8:27 p.m.

I knew that Admiral Beckett Brass would be challenging to build around, but because there are so few pirates and because many of them do not share a creature type, cards like Shared Animosity, Coat of Arms, Kindred Charge and Door of Destinies just aren't as powerful. This type of deck also mitigates the utility of mass recursion cards like Patriarch's Bidding.

Granted, many of the pirates are human, so I could possibly build a deck based around that creature type, but because evasion is such a crucial part of my strategy, I would have to cut cards like Siren Stormtamer Dreamcaller Siren and Siren Lookout.

Are there any mass creature pump spells that would work with creatures of different types? I don't really know of any in Grixis.
