Max_Hammer on Mardu Treasures

Hello friend! I have some suggestions! I had way too much time today, so here you go.

Relatively cheap, potent, and just perfect upgrades.

This bit is, of course, focused on making as many treasures as your board can bear.

Great, now you have all of these treasures, now what are you going to do with them?

  • Frogmite, Lens Flare, Scale of Chiss-Goria, Tooth of Chiss-Goria, Mycosynth Golem, Slag Strider, Furnace Dragon, and Myr Enforcer are all notable cards you could add, since they pretty much become free after a while, though mostly pretty useless.

  • Forsworn Paladin is pretty good token generation early game, but really shines with the second ability where it can instantly punish anyone blocking or attacking you recklessly.

  • Marionette Master is going to pack a punch.

  • Dargo, the Shipwrecker is super cheap for a 7/5 with trample.

  • Enraged Giant, Freejam Regent, Battle at the Bridge, Saheeli's Directive, Herald of Anguish, and Organic Extinction are all pretty solid additions, since they don’t make you sacrifice anything in exchange for it.

  • Ruthless Technomancer has a million combos with (like Dockside Extortionist+sac outlet) and is just pretty good on its own.

  • Leonin Elder is just one life, but when you’re playing a treasure deck, that one life will definitely add up.

  • Underhanded Designs is a murder or a poke engine, which is very snazzy.

  • Glaze Fiend is pretty scary, considering that it has trample.

  • Dragonspark Reactor could be a bit of removal in your back pocket or your wincon.

  • Arcbound Crusher’s design team didn’t anticipate just how many artifacts I was planning on throwing onto the field.

  • Professional Face-Breaker is just like Grim Hireling, in that it makes treasure tokens, but more importantly, it gives you something else. You get a load of impulse draw, which is really nice when you have loads of mana.

  • Magda, Brazen Outlaw is just an artifact tutor, really. Though, there are plenty of treasure loving dragons you could also fish for. (:

  • Kalain, Reclusive Painter loves treasures, giving everyone big buffs.

  • Swashbuckler Extraordinaire can give anything that might be sensitive to dying double strike for a big final push. That, or just give one big boy double strike.

  • Their Number is Legion gets you lots of life and lots of tokens.

  • Necron Overlord is just a worse Ghirapur, but it’s still gonna hurt.

  • Street Urchin is the same idea as the above.

  • Armix, Filigree Thrasher could be some annoying removal, especially early game.

  • Hellkite Igniter is a big boy that, if left unblocked, could be a one hit kill.

  • Feedback Bolt is a big, powerful spell. To put it simply: ouch.

  • Fain, the Broker can make treasures, can make +1/+1’s, and can make little spooky boys. The best type of boys. Great utility and variety overall.

  • Rain of Riches is big. One cascading spell a turn, whichever one you want? Imagine dropping Feedback Bolt and cascading into Hellkite Igniter.

  • Captain Lannery Storm is innocent… Until you leave her unblocked like a dummy.

  • Concussive Bolt can be an easy kill, letting you get as much damage as you want through.

  • Dispense Justice is just like saying “Fuck your voltron.”

  • It seems you also like having and sacrificing constructs, so here’s a bit to let you do more of that, if you’d prefer to have a construct deck over a treasure token deck.

    • Shared Animosity will give constructs a boost, but there really isn’t a specific theme across creature types aside from that, and your constructs are better used for chump blocking or just turning them into scrap. Ignore this if you’re going for more of a construct tribal sort of thing.

    • Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip is a good card, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it’s really necessary.

    • Rakdos Charm could be replaced with something better as far as artifact removal or graveyard hate. Nihil Spellbomb would be good graveyard hate and Generous Gift is just a good white staple.

    • Comet Storm is fun, but Crackle with Power is more fun.

    Dargo, the Shipwrecker can't actually target other permanents, because its not target permanent. Still good combo though!

    Additional costs are paid during the casting of a spell and no player has priority while a spell is being cast. Triggered abilities can trigger while you are casting a spell, but they wait to go on the stack until a player would receive priority and then they must resolve.

    This means that if you are sacrificing the Mogg War Marshal as an additional cost to cast Dargo, the Shipwrecker you will not have the LTB token to sacrifice while casting him. If you use something else, such as Phyrexian Tower, to sacrifice Mogg War Marshal and are counting on the second part of the ability to reduce the cost then yes you will be able to do as you decribed.

    The additional cost to playing Dargo, the Shipwrecker sorta perplexes me. Let's say I cast Mogg War Marshal, which enters alongside a 1/1 token. Later that turn, could I sacrifice the War Marshal, the 1/1 token from the etb trigger, and THEN the 1/1 token from the War Marshal's ltb trigger to reduce Dargo's cost to R?

    Just because I love the meme of creating a deck that has next to zero creature offensive capability (Outside a few cards), I'd have to say Pramikon, Sky Rampart. I've always loved trying to build at least somewhat usable wall tribal.

    When Pramikon came out i was so excited to build a wall deck that no longer needed a rule-0 chat to play.

    Outside of memes though, i love Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator partnered with Dargo, the Shipwrecker since pirates are my favourite tribe (If the username didn't give it away), as well as being my favourite colour combo.

    Loving this deck, I built my own with the Dargo, the Shipwrecker and Phyrexian Altar combo in mind and have been loving it so far. The white looks cool, and I do miss the new small white dorks in Jund. Teysa Karlov looks very spicy and it looks like she can help you run away with the game. I ended up putting more man-lands in my build, but I can support them a bit easier with only 3 colours.

    Thanks for introducing me to this amazing concept, the deck looks mostly innocuous until a win can just pop up out of nowhere.

    The trick is of course that sacrificing Dargo, the Shipwrecker to Thermopod will pay for its commander tax due to Dargo's artifacts or creatures sacrificed this turn clause, and the mana from Thermopod can pay for casting him again. But yeah, it needs the startup. Although Treasure tokens would work too, you don't need 3 creatures per se ;-)

    I got Dargo, the Shipwrecker + Thermopod + Desecrated Tomb .

    I also have a question: Building time ends 4/23/2021 @ 12:00pm PT. Wasn't that, like, 4 weeks ago?
