Firefuri on Wait.. Budget Pirates?

6 months ago

I was tempted to just order the deck so quickly after making it, so I’m really thankful you commented before I did. I scrapped Corsair Captain just because he’s seven dollars for a pirate anthem effect. I know I could copy it with Stolen Identity, but you already listed so many good wincons.

The group hug cards came to mind because they’re cheap money wise and get me the card draw I want. Sadly it does put resources into my opponents’ hands that I’d want to take away with Breeches, but that’s the price I pay for not paying the price for one-sided card draw. I play with my close friends so we make lots of political deals, I’m sure they’d appreciate drawing cards as I beat them down. It’ll definitely lose me games, but so long as we have fun.

Glint-Horn Buccaneer is insane with Malcolm, I can’t believe how it’s near infinite like you said. I really can’t thank you enough for putting time into helping me out. I originally made a nonbudget deck for Tabletop Simulator to play with and thought how I could totally play this in person for under 100 bucks.

Hey Coercive Recruiter, Amphin Mutineer, Breeches, Brazen Plunderer, Crumbling Necropolis, Command Tower, Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, Port Razer, Forerunner of the Coalition, Captain Lannery Storm, Storm Fleet Sprinter, Corsair Captain, Spectral Sailor, Angrath's Marauders, Dreamcaller Siren, Lightning-Rig Crew, and Archetype of Imagination are all cards that are good for a tribal Pirate deck.

I'm always one for pirate tribal (despite me never managing to piece together me own pirate deck), so this is a +1 from me!

General
-------------------------------
I know you have a ton of decks, but arcane signet and commanders sphere likely belong in every deck.

36 lands/4 mana rocks seems too high. General rule for me is 35 lands - 1 for every 2-3 mana rocks. This deck also has a low cmc and generates treasures so it seems like you are ~3 lands too high. I would start cutting the 5 color lands and if you bump your cmc up at all, consider adding signets for minimal ramp at the cost of a lands at a 1/3 ratio.

add
Castle Locthwain - low oppurtunity cost for high value. your deck is half black and this can get you back into a game where you run low on resources

remove
Yawgmoth is a heavy combo card, I dont see a combo for him, he would likely be better in anafenza where you can combo with persist creatures and bolster and all that. the proliferate is powerful, but checkout the options under infect.
Brazen Freebooter Captain Lannery Storm Corsair Captain Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer Prosperous Pirates Rapacious Dragon Sailor of Means - you already have enough draft chaff in the random infect creatures, revel in riches win is accomplished with a single board clear, or ~2 turns of attacking, they are not required for revel in riches.

If you wanna go revel in riches
-------------------------------
Phyrexian Tower - sac outlet and fast mana. see also Westvale Abbey  Flip
Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch/Anger - lets you attack after a board clear
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - this may be in another deck for flavor reasons, but basically makes all non humans immortal
Last One Standing - This basically a better damnation in rackdos. This should replace bontus last reckoning or just be an
additional board clear if you wanna go reanimator with mikaeus, hell even Nevinyrral's Disk is better than bontus
Phyrexian Scriptures ^ all those reasons, mild shoutout to Chain Reaction Blasphemous Act Spell Swindle/Storm the Vault  Flip/Brass's Bounty any of these will replace all of the draft chaff and free up some card slots
Curse of Opulence - ramps and duh
Hellkite Tyrant - likely in another deck, but consider it

If you wanna go infect
-------------------------------
Karn's Bastion - proliferate the counters and infect counters
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Filth - another way to get unblockable. Wonder/Levitation also make blocking hard
Tainted Strike - the best thing about this card, is the fact you can cast it on your opponents creatures. This also combos well with reach creatures like Judith, the Scourge Diva/Syr Konrad, the Grim allowing you to kill your opponents w/o attacking. Does not apply to Blood Artist because life lose does not deal infect damage.
Move Drana, Liberator of Malakir to the mainboard, shes too synergistic to leave behind
Warstorm Surge - deal infect damage without attacking Stalking Vengeance is a worse version
Sword of Truth and Justice - prolly the best sword for this deck.
Bident of Thassa//Coastal Piracy - unblockable means free cards
Open Into Wonder/Mogis's Marauder - moar unblockable
Guildmages' Forum - synergy land
planeswalkers go up a ton with proliferate, Chandra, Flamecaller is a board clear, filter and damage engine. you will pretty much be able to ult Dack Fayden the turn you cast him. Liliana, Dreadhorde General looks amazing in this deck. ulting Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for the win? just lul
Geode Golem - consider him if you think you need marchesa for the deck to work
Cyclonic Rift - likely in another deck, but another way to go unblockable River's Rebuke/Profaner of the Dead budget options
the vivid lands work with proliferate

Vigean Graftmage - may be better in your twiddle deck, but you can do a number of infinite combos with this card if you wanna go that direction. not very recommended with your current build
