Your whole world is going to change when you realize Library of Leng and Anje are a match made in heaven.

What you want to do with infinite untap/tap/draw/discard triggers is up to you. I reommend Bone Miser, Glint-Horn Buccaneer, and Surly Badgersaur as good places to start.

Rakdos has some good synergy for discarding cards, with effects like Glint-Horn Buccaneer and Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip, or even Skirge Familiar . That may be a route to consider.

Update 10 july 2021

out: Explorer's Scope (looked cool, but I don't plan on having creatures early on. just to get Neheb out as early as possible); Tome of Legends (was still around from when I didn't have Endless Atlas yet; Glint-Horn Buccaneer (first looked like it did everything I wanted: bonus effects when I discard, deal damage and draw cards. but it turned out to be really situational).

in: Planar Bridge had this card laying around for a while and finally decided to put it in because it can search for my win-conditions really well when I have a lot of mana. Wayfarer's Bauble good ol' bauble. Fall of the Titans I've had this in my collection for a long time. but didn't see why I should play it in Neheb because I thought two targets would be bad. turns out, two targets is enough most of the times, since you sometimes don't want to kill the creatures on the board.

Hey, well done so far with your budget version of these partner Commanders.

Glint-Horn Buccaneer is a pinger when you discard and has game winning interaction with both Malcolm and Breeches. Buccaneer by itself combos with Malcolm by activating it during combat to potentially be a win condition as long as when you combo you have at least two opponents and realistically more than 40+ cards in your library. If you add Breeches then even if you don't kill all your opponents with damage from Buccaneer you can exile a ton of each opponents library. If you have three or more opponents when you combo then it makes extra mana with treasures to cast a lot of your opponents spells that you exiled.


Freed from the Real combos by enchanting any pinger when it's a Pirate + Malcolm for infinite ping. Lightning-Rig Crew already suggested by carpecanum is already a Pirate who pings. Without Freed, Crew by itself is still very good with Malcom and Breeches because it pings each opponent with one activation.

Can take better advantage of Crew's untap when you're playing other Pirates such as Warkite Marauder who has flying evasion and good interaction with other pingers. When it attacks you can make a creature of defending opponent a 0/1, then ping it for 1 damage to kill it. Siren Stormtamer also has flying evasion and it can counter a targeted spell to protect a creature such as Glint-Horn Buccaneer or yourself by sacing itself.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, well done with a low budget at upgrading a precon.

If you want to add a combo then consider Glint-Horn Buccaneer ? For less than $2 he combos with Malcolm since he's a Pirate. When you discard a card Buccaneer does 1 damage to each opponent and since he does damage to each opponent then Malcolm creates the same number of treasures as opponents you have. You need at least two opponents and 40+ cards in your library for this combo to be a consistent win condition.

You only need Buccaneer and Malcolm for this combo since to activate the combo all you do is activate Buccaneer for two mana while in combat. When you discard a card this triggers Malcolm to create treasures. Sac two treasures to make two mana to activate Buccaneer again and repeat.


Lightning-Rig Crew is also a Pirate damage source and playing him you don't need to enchant or equip a Pirate so it can activate to do damage. Crew does damage to each opponent thus each time it activates you create treasures. Crew combos with Freed from the Real + Malcolm and you already have Freed. If you enchant Crew with Curiosity or Ophidian Eye then each time you activate it you draw a number of cards equal to the number of opponents you have which can be great repeatable draw.

Drift of Phantasms is a nice budget card for it's transmute since it can search for any 3 CMC card which includes Buccaneer, Crew, Eye or Freed.

Good luck with your deck.

The tried and true Curiosity could also be an option, pairs well with your evasive commander and has uber value with cards like Glint-Horn Buccaneer

I like the engine you built here... I don't like King Macar - that's a big mana cost for a dude that doesn't do anything. You're talking about ramp but have no big spells. I mean, if you take out the king and the Skysovereign, and you could be running Lurrus companion - just things to think about. Now, what replaces the king? I don't know... But you need a way to deal a mass amount of damage or have some other large impact on the game after drawing so many cards... So, again, I love the inspired engine, you just need a finisher. Maybe stuff like this:

Hi! Thanks for your advices! I'm actually thinking about yours propositions of cards. Actually I bought: Burnished Hart -> Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge - I don't like Gadrak, really, it was bad choice Hellkite Courser -> Forgestoker Dragon - I don't need that card, cause my creatures have flying and they are so strong Path of Ancestry -> I don't know, probably for mountain I have too: Terminate Torrent of Souls - it's better Bond of Revival for me. I'm slowly buying new, more expensive cards. They are in my maybeboard. Discarding a cards is very important mechanic in my deck, but I want to have mana to casting my creatures from hand too. I think about cards like a Glint-Horn Buccaneer (I have) too, but making my deck with discarding mechanic means rebuilding all deck.
