Crafty Cutpurse

Creature — Human Pirate


When this enters the battlefield, each token that would be created under an opponent's control this turn is created under your control instead.

Lol win conditions? Stealing IS winning. But seriously, this deck doesn't have many easy win conditions. Pulling Insurrection is possibly one. Basically, when someone else has a winning board, just swipe it for a turn and win in their stead.

Also, Crafty Cutpurse can steal someone's "I make 1,036 copies of this creature because of my multiple non-legendary copies of Adrix and Nev, Twincasters" moment.

Other than that, it's basically just a slow, somewhat ineffective beat down by stealing their stuff and hitting them with it. Just hoping they will be even less effective due to losing their commanders and sometimes enchantments/artifacts.

Maybe this deck would be better for two headed giant matches instead. Either that or just throw in a couple infinites and have the thievery buy you time to get those infinites. Though I myself am not generally a fan of infinites since it just feels a little unsatisfying to win that way.

Echoing wallisface, budget aggro lives or dies by casting 1 mana spells as fast as possible.

If you move to straight rakdos colours, you lose only Daring Saboteur and Frantic Inventory , while your mana becomes a lot more reliable.

With the land set here, I'd go so far as to run almost entirely 1 colour with splashes for higher cmc spells.

A few options; Deadeye Tracker + Grasping Scoundrel + Outcast with a focus on 1 and 2 mana black spells - Kitesail Freebooter in particular is good in a black shell with other sources of discard.

Rigging Runner + Daring Buccaneer + Fanatical Firebrand will work well with a focus on fast damage partucularly spells that deal direct damage and like creatures. I'd look at Captain Ripley Vance and the budget staple Curse of Stalked Prey alongside sources of evasion.

Blue as a primary colour has some neat options if you want to go for a more instant-speed tempo game - Siren Stormtamer , Spectral Sailor , & Brineborn Cutthroat , while opening up sideboard tricks like Crafty Cutpurse and cheap past staples like Mana Leak .

There are a few notable pirates to build combos around - Skyship Plunderer , Timestream Navigator , but they don't have a coherent theme which will make builds awkward.

Grind Omniscience_is_life Sponge is a little too situational. Especially when trying to spam copies. It could be a good response to other draw heavy blue decks. Inga Rune-Eyes Has been a very consistent draw engine when excess mana is available and a good searching tool otherwise. Crafty Cutpurse I am on the fence on. Its a good answer to the very big Dockside Extortionist and Smothering Tithe meta, but too expensive CMC to warrant a slot in the Deck. Slithermuse is kind of down the same issue of usually I expect to have most card draw because Blue so usually this wont be helpful. I was considering a way to capitalize off of those meta cards aside from countering them, but countering them is probably just the optimal play usually.

Mulligan might be relevant in determining slithermuse value though, and I will consider that after some more playthroughs so thanks for that card!

I think this deck has a lot of potential! I may be biased on my liking of counterspells, but I do feel that Nimble Obstructionist would be great in this deck because of its versatility, and Merfolk Trickster or perhaps a Mizzium Meddler instead of the Crafty Cutpurse. also, the Lochmere Serpent seems a little too high on the curve for an aggro deck, possibly a Notion Thief would work better.
