Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer

Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer

Legendary Creature — Monkey Pirate

Whenever this deals combat damage to a player, create a Treasure token and exile the top card of that player's library. Until end of turn, you may cast that card.

Dash (You may cast this spell for its dash cost. If you do, this gains haste, and is returned from the battlefield to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.)

Yes, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer has a mana value of 1, even if it's cast with its alternate dash cost, without paying its mana cost, or through an increased cost like Trinisphere .

I’ve tried looking for this online, and only ended up more confused. If there is a Chalice of the Void with 1 counter, and a Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer is dashed, will it counter the creature?

Hey maxmcnugget! Here are my thoughts on the cards you listed:

  • Academy Manufactor : Love it! It's already in the deck. It triples the amount of artifacts we get, which is already amazing here, but also provides the deck with another draw engine.
  • Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer : A very powerful early game play, but I'm not digging the fact that it does not have evasion (and although not as powerful, I don't run Captain Lannery Storm for the same reason). You can easily slot it in a deck like this if you want, but I've let it slide for now. I might change my mind on this one though, as it is proving to be quite the powerhouse in most formats.
  • Xorn : at first I was sure I was going to add that here, but then I realized it's not so good with Malcolm. Malcolm is worded in such a way that it triggers once each combat, regardless of the amount of players you hit. So if you hit 3 players with a pirate with Xorn out, you get 4 treasure instead of 3. That's not amazing. Especially when comparing it to Anointed Procession or Academy Manufactor . If you want to try it out, a good spot to replace it with might be Monologue Tax . I personally prefer tax because it's a standalone treasure producer.
  • Treasure Chest : wonderfully on theme and probably a catalyst for fun moments, but I won't be adding it. One of the things I value most when picking cards is reliability. And rolling dice is the opposite of that. It's not for me ;).

Have you thought of trading your commander out for Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer ? Seems better in my opinion

Hello again! With the recent release of MH2, have you considered playing a Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer ? While it isn't a goblin (and completely understand that one might be priced out of the card...), would you consider it as a valuable addition to the deck?

This deck would most definitely benefit from Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer , which I’m really surprised you aren’t running.
