That would be

Mycosynth Wellspring , Seize the Spoils , Phyrexian Metamorph , Trail of Evidence , Pirate's Pillage , Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , Curse of Opulence , Blasphemous Act , Ghost Quarter / Field of Ruin , Mirrodin Besieged , Saheeli, the Gifted , Mystic Retrieval , Relic of Progenitus / Tormod's Crypt , Star of Extinction , Cyclonic Rift , Comet Storm , Chaos Warp , Loyal Apprentice , Thopter Spy Network , Sai, Master Thopterist , Hypersonic Dragon , Padeem, Consul of Innovation , Ravenform , Memnarch , Liquimetal Coating , Blatant Thievery , and Inspiring Statuary .

I did that with the following code:

[[mycosynth wellspring]], [[seize the spoils]], [[phyrexian Metamorph]], [[trail of evidence]], [[pirate's pillage]], [[saheeli, Sublime Artificer]], [[Curse of opulence]], [[Blasphemous act]], [[ghost quarter]]/[[field of ruin]], [[Mirrodin Besieged]], [[Saheeli the Gifted]], [[mystic retrieval]], [[relic of progenitus]]/[[tormod's crypt]], [[star of extinction]], [[cyclonic rift]], [[comet storm]], [[chaos warp]], [[Loyal apprentice]], [[thopter spy network]], [[Sai, Master Thopterist]], [[Hypersonic Dragon]], [[Padeem, Consul of Innovation]], [[Ravenform]], [[Memnarch]], [[liquimetal coating]], [[Blatant Thievery]], and [[Inspiring statuary]]

MeanLizard I agree on exploring a treasure subtheme, but I don't know if this shell is built to make the most use of them. I WISH Curse of Opulence made treasure, then we'd be on to something. Here's the relevant treasure cards I've previously identified and why I haven't previously added them:

  • Impulsive Pilferer : This is probably the closest for me. Perfectly fine to discard, but its four mana to get three 1/1s and we'll end the turn down one mana. No goblin or pirate synergies.
  • Glimmervoid : Not enough artifacts in tow to make this consistently valuable. I have the same hesitation for Spire of Industry .
  • Magda, Brazen Outlaw : Same issues as Feldon being too slow and being a target for removal once its online. If the package comes together in the next set or two, we'll have to re-visit Magda.
  • Pirate's Pillage : Probably not efficient enough to be included, but maybe?
  • Rapacious Dragon : Eh? The ETB aspect is nice for a heavier reanimation package, but this won't make a big enough impact on the game (I think).
  • Revel in Riches : I think there COULD be a case for this to be included, but 5 CMC is too expensive for my taste that doesn't pretty much win on the spot. I also worry about over-investing in a subtheme - Bladewing is already convoluted (draw dragons > discard dragons > revive dragons), so straying away from that too much puts the deck at risk of being diluted / durdling.

I'm perfectly content to have Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge not be able to attack - when I can finally snag and add in Toxic Deluge and/or Fire Covenant , we'll be packing such a heavy removal package that Gadrak becomes that much more likely to fall into value.

I like to look at Rakdos-color cEDH builds for ideas, and a few cards keep catching my attention: * Mindblade Render * Withering Boon * Mogg Salvage * Songs of the Damned

I keep seeing Necromancy so I think I have to take the plunge and add it...

I'll also put that question to our other Bladewing friends: Fuzzlewuzzle, That_Salty_Gamr, and Azeworai - have you guys any pet cards or utility/tech cards that feel like they consistently over-achieve in your Bladewing decks?

Hi MeanLizard! Thanks for your feedback! Let's talk about these!

Cathartic Reunion : This is probably the strongest suggestion and the one I'd be most likely to include. It's 2 CMC, draw three rate is so efficient in Bladewing builds! I could've sworn I'd included it and cut it at some point. In general, I feel like I've finally got my card draw in a good place, and Cathartic may push that further. - In your play experience, how often have you been upset / adversely impacted by discarding a 2nd card? More often than not I have a dragon to send to the graveyard, but that 2nd card worries me..

Tormenting Voice & Wild Guess : Both of these are omitted just because they're not as efficient as I'd like them to be. Card advantage can be a major problem for this deck, so I either want to get exactly what I need (tutors!), have recurring value (planeswalkers!) or get a draw alongside another effect (mana rocks!). I know these push the strategy forward, I just wonder if there's more value to be had from those slots, especially knowing they're at sorcery speed. For those reasons, I've considered Seize the Spoils and Pirate's Pillage for their additional synergies!

Dance of the Dead and Necromancy : I see them in every other Bladewing build, and they 100% make sense, and are probably optimal include. What do you think would make sense to take out for one or both? I've never pulled the trigger on these because of minor quibbles about their drawbacks - DotD comes in tapped and has the ongoing cost, while Necromancy is a 3 CMC, single-target reanimate.

I'd sooner consider Necromancy over Dance of the Dead I think, but I'd want to have a bit more value coming from ETBs/LTBs to ensure consistent value in the event I need the instant-speed mode: of my 24 creatures (including Bladewing), I only have 8-9 that can take advantage of the flash version. I think if the creature base gets more ETB/LTB heavy in the future, it'll be a stronger inclusion for sure!

If you share your list I'd love to check it out open up our discussion!

Hi usherp!Thanks for your comment! Bag of Holding it's very good card but to exploit it well you have to build a deck around it,maybe more based on artifacts( Skeleton Key , Mask of Memory , Pirate's Pillage , Unlicensed Disintegration for example).I think about it,thanks for the idea! if you have ideas or changes for my decks write me ^^

For reference: Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge

I guess, besides card draw and ramp, you'll want three things for Gadrak:

1: treasure production. That's easy in red. You can cast things like Pirate's Pillage and especially Brass's Bounty . Dockside Extortionist is perfect for Gadrak, if you are willing and able to akquire it. You could also do a dwarven route with Magda, Brazen Outlaw .

2: treasure pay-offs. Goldspan Dragon is insane here. Also, Bludgeon Brawl and Ghirapur AEther Grid might be pretty useful.

3: Creatures with death triggers. Anax, Hardened in the Forge and similar cards seem great here. Also, many goblins do damage when they die.

Also, Fuzzlewuzzle and iammute, have you both tested Vanquisher's Banner? Five mana is a lot, I'm just trying to think of ways to net card advantage. Species Specialist feels like it won't have enough impact, Pirate's Pillage feels intriguing to me (albeit sorcery speed), and maybe I just need to bring Dragon Mage back into my build.

Happy new year, Spirits! Pirate's Pillage seems like a great addition that I had never even considered. Throughout the day I made adjustments to the deck, and I think at this point it’s just a matter of cutting some things.

The copy package does seem a bit excessive, so I’ll probably make some cuts there. I’m still not sure about Aetherflux Reservoir, because it’s a great payoff for infinite copy loops that are just mana neutral (like Reiterate + Snap ), but the entire deck is full of good stuff at this point. I’m also conflicted on Mind's Desire for the exact same reason. It can just win the game if you can cast it with a storm count from a Reiterate combo, but so can several other cards.

Any thoughts on the interaction/counters portion of the deck? It’s definitely less than I would typically run, but I don’t think a combo deck like this can really afford the hit to its consistency by adding much more. I’m also lukewarm on my evaluation of Curse of the Swine. It can only hit creatures, and the sorcery speed is kind of annoying.

Also, the mana base makes me a little uncomfortable. I’m running all of the inefficient fetches so I can have Islands for High Tide without giving up the ability to have more red sources if I need them, but that does make it super slow, with a ton of taplands. It’s not like my friends are running anything better though, so that’s reassuring at least.

On a slightly different note, are you working on any decks currently?
