Dire Fleet Daredevil

Creature — Human Pirate

First Strike

When Dire Fleet Daredevil enters the battlefield, exile target instant or sorcery from an opponent's graveyard. You can cast that card this turn and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color. If that card would be put into a graveyard this turn, exile it instead.

     elliotmward97: Thanks for the upvote and the follow! =D I'll go through each of the cards you've posted and give you my thoughts

     Creative Technique: A card I'd considered. I'm not super into giving benefits to my opponents, especially benefits based on chance. I tend to have very poor RNG in all games, and I just imagined scenarios where I turn up a couple of mana rocks and my opponent turns up an Eldrazi or something lol. And on the other side of that, without using the Demonstrate portion I just feel like most of the time I'm not going to get my five mana back from it with only 6 cards greater than six Converted Mana Cost in the deck.

     Ancient Copper Dragon: All day, every day! I think this card is going to be a beast. Lots of new toys coming in Baldur's Gate.

     Imperial Recruiter: I've actually been thinking about this as well, as many of the most effective cards in the deck are things like Reckless Fireweaver and Disciple of the Vault. But also being able to grab things like Dockside Extortionist and Marionette Master in the late game is pretty slick, too.

     Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer: In my last few trips to my LGS, I've looked at their foil Ragavan under the counter and thought really hard about buying it, but always talked myself out of it lol. While this card is great, it does become a gradually worse draw the more rounds into the game you get. If it weren't so expensive I probably would include it, but I also don't feel like it's going to make or break the deck.

     Robber of the Rich & Dire Fleet Daredevil: Both of these kind of fall into the same camp as Creative Technique. Both fine cards in their own right, but they hinge on factors outside of my control.

     Malakir Rebirth  Flip: Also a fine card, not really my style but can slot into pretty much any black deck.

     Author of Shadows was cut in favour of Soul-Guide Lantern. Author is a good card, but it was an inclusion more for the Graveyard Hate aspect of the card than for the Exiled cast. On top of being one mana to cast instead of five, it also has artifact synergies with the rest of the deck, too. :)

     Thanks again, glad you like the deck! =D

Creative Technique Ancient Copper Dragon Imperial Recruiter Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer Robber of the Rich Dire Fleet Daredevil Malakir Rebirth  Flip

You're going to want to set your format to I believe Pioneer, with the cards you're running at the moment.

Take out Brineborn Cutthroat and Protean Raider. They're not all that good in pirate tribal. Take out Wily Goblin for more card draw like Chart a Course, it's going to be better late game and you're not really trying to ramp into a big finisher a turn early anyways.

If you go 4 Forerunner of the Coalition you can basically go toolbox with a similar list to what you have. Otherwise I would down to 6-8 separate pirate cards.

Imo the best pirates are Spectral Sailor, Dire Fleet Daredevil, Kitesail Freebooter, Ruin Raider, and Admiral Beckett Brass. Probably 3-4 of each of those + 4 Forerunner of the Coalition for toolbox, and 1 of each other pirate you want to include.

Fiery Cannonade is better in the sideboard. Swap in against tokens or small creature aggro.

While not explicitly pirates, Angrath, the Flame-Chained is better than Angrath, Minotaur Pirate. I try to stay away from the planeswalker deck planeswalkers. Although you could run Angrath's Fury and keep the deck like the precon I suppose.

I posted some thoughts below. I don't know what your budget is, but i've suggested cards assuming you're after stuff on-par price-wise to what's currently in the deck. If you're looking for some more expensive goodies, let me know.

  • Blade Historian just doesn't seem playable... it requires 4 red, but your deck has only 11 ways to generate that color (or, only 9 if you're not naming Human or Cleric with Unclaimed Territory ). I don't see how you're ever casting it in a game - so i'd suggest ditching it.

  • Buccaneer's Bravado feels cute, but with the power of your creatures, is likely just going to be a complicated Lightning Bolt in 90% of situations. I'm not sure its worth playing

  • It looks like you're plan is to be aggressive and be swinging in with a lot of creatures quickly(ish). In that regard, i'm not sure Frantic Inventory helps you here. Playing it means you're not playing a threat to help you win... its not a particularly helpful card for a deck aiming to apply pressure.

  • You have very few cards at 1cmc - which is going to make it hard to apply early pressure. I'd suggest something like Daring Buccaneer , Siren Stormtamer , Spectral Sailor or Fanatical Firebrand . Other low-cost creatures worth considering are Dire Fleet Captain , Dire Fleet Daredevil , Dire Fleet Poisoner , and Rigging Runner . Generally, if you're wanting to be a fast deck, you want to be as close to the ground as possible. Dire Fleet Captain feels particularly good for ensuring you can hit hard when your board's getting wide.

  • I'd suggest finding a lower-cmc killspell than Hero's Downfall . Replacing it with more Heartless Act should be fine - though I'd personally think something like Bone Shards would work best (you can discard excess lands or bad draws to pay its additional cost).

  • With the above suggested changes, you should be able to go down to around 20 lands. That will help you truly shine as an aggressive deck.

I sadly think this deck suffers from wanting too much high mana creatures. I'd try striving for some 1 to 3 mana value creatures that you wouldn't mind playing out more of. It would improve gameplay alot. Question is ofcourse, what of 4+ mana value to cut.. Let's see... Heck, if you have money a Dockside Extortionist would do great in this deck. Stuff like Dire Fleet Daredevil gives some added utility. Mogg War Marshal isn't too bad since you always keep blockers, especially if you have something like Goblin Bombardment to sac tokens. Storm Entity could be fun etc.

bosny i've sorted it into general categories for ya. the main cog is curio for triggering and re-triggering EtBs (we're deliberately avoiding a storm win con) and another nice one is nexus for upgrading all your tribal EtB tutors (as well as treasure output, obviously)

Ruby Medallion and The Immortal Sun reduce the cost of your silly storm of creatures, Mana Echoes and Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip can help you string your 2+ CMC creature spells along, and the Harnfel, Horn of Bounty side of Birgi is a nice bonus, especially if you've got access to Paradise Mantle and Cinder Pyromancer or Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip for {R} so don't be afraid to pick her up and redeploy once you're rolling, bouncing, rather

obviously there's that guy or Purphoros, God of the Forge / Kyren Negotiations for win cons... but wouldn't you rather mill your pod out with Hair-Strung Koto while playing every single instant and sorcery from their decks with Dire Fleet Daredevil ?

dare to dream, my little devil friend :)

Between those two underperforming pirates, keep Dire Fleet Daredevil. Kari Zev's token isn't doing much for the deck, and the daredevil is probably one of my auto includes when I get around to making a pirate deck.

If you are looking to hit harder, Captain Vargus Wrath is a solid choice. He might even work as a finisher if you have Port Razer out.
