Emberwilde Captain Discussion

Neat commander! Could also look into cards that create temporary tokens of the commander, as he doesn't really care if he sticks around. Heat Shimmer , Twinflame .

Monarchy also seems to work really well with your commander, as you're forcing everyone to attack someone other than yourself. Court of Ambition , Skyline Despot , Emberwilde Captain , Court of Ire . Captive Audience is also a rude card, as you'll force your opponents to attack eachother with the zombies, giving you five zombies to run amok.

General rude Rakdos cards, something like Mind Twist or Rakdos's Return can cripple a player. Combined with having to attack someone else leaving themselves open seems like it'd be really backbreaking!

Ok so it's pretty hard to use an extra 3 man with riku to copy a creature so keeping the curve low seems important.

Would you recommend building a similar deck to this, but with no infinite combos; since my playgroup doesn't really like infinites? The win cons will be Mechanized Production, Hellkite Tyrant, and commander damage with Akiri/Malcolm with auras/equipment. Could possibly run cards like Thermo-Alchemist along with ways to make it a pirate for a kind of spell slinger sub-theme or can instead delve deeper into just running more actual pirate creatures like Fathom Fleet Swordjack and Emberwilde Captain. Though, I feel like the spell slinger type thing might be to inconsistent/janky to really work well since you need a 2 card combo as well as gas(spells) in your hand to get and value.

Mickyplays, thanks for your comment! Yes, there are quite a few I'm going to test out. Court of Grace, Court of Ambition, and Emberwilde Captain are all going to be tried. I like that Court of Grace and Emberwilde Captain help protect the Monarch as well as giving you the Monarch. They synergize with the pillowfort theme. Court of Ambition doesn't protect the Monarch but does give the deck a grinding win condition. It may focus too much attention though.

Court of Ire is just too expensive at 5 mana I think. Only doing 2 damage when you're not the monarch isn't impactful enough.

Emberwilde Captain, the djinn that grants the 3 wishes.

Vivien, Champion of the Wilds: Milva

Asceticism: Brokilon Forest

Pyrohemia, Star of Extinction, Blasphemous Act: The burning of everything throughout the war.

Chaos Warp: Ciri jumping through time.

Crown-Hunter Hireling and Grasping Giant : Degerlund's Lacky's, Bue and Bang.

Looking forward to seeing it come together!

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: my objection is that for one, Emberwilde Captain is cheaper if you just want the monarch & some burn (yes, you could run both) & mono- decks are going to have a hard time keeping three people from taking the monarch from them, in which case you're just going to get a cantriping Arc Blade with suspend 1. I do agree tho that the Court cycle in general give cool rewards to pillow fort decks... except for 's, I guess they thought it already had it easy to pillow fort compared to the other colors
