Skyship Plunderer

Creature — Human Pirate


When this deals combat damage to a player, for each kind of counter on target permanent or player, give that permanent or player another counter of that kind.

Echoing wallisface, budget aggro lives or dies by casting 1 mana spells as fast as possible.

If you move to straight rakdos colours, you lose only Daring Saboteur and Frantic Inventory , while your mana becomes a lot more reliable.

With the land set here, I'd go so far as to run almost entirely 1 colour with splashes for higher cmc spells.

A few options; Deadeye Tracker + Grasping Scoundrel + Outcast with a focus on 1 and 2 mana black spells - Kitesail Freebooter in particular is good in a black shell with other sources of discard.

Rigging Runner + Daring Buccaneer + Fanatical Firebrand will work well with a focus on fast damage partucularly spells that deal direct damage and like creatures. I'd look at Captain Ripley Vance and the budget staple Curse of Stalked Prey alongside sources of evasion.

Blue as a primary colour has some neat options if you want to go for a more instant-speed tempo game - Siren Stormtamer , Spectral Sailor , & Brineborn Cutthroat , while opening up sideboard tricks like Crafty Cutpurse and cheap past staples like Mana Leak .

There are a few notable pirates to build combos around - Skyship Plunderer , Timestream Navigator , but they don't have a coherent theme which will make builds awkward.

I would run Fatal Push over Moment of Craving , plus 1-2 Dreadbore s (or Bedevil ) to get rid of bigger creatures or problematic walkers.

Angrath, Captain of Chaos and Jace, Cunning Castaway don't seem that great, and even if you decide to keep them I don't think three copies of each is justified. Liliana, the Last Hope is both recursion and removal, plus her ultimate also synergizes if you ever fire it off.

Have you considered a playset of Thoughtseize ? You don't have a single turn one play in the entire deck, and I think this card would be a great way to gain information and disrupt their gameplan.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir might be a nice card to try out for more +1/+1 counters.

Also, your mana costs are pretty demanding so you should definitely cut some basics and add in more Blood Crypt , along with some Drowned Catacomb , and Steam Vents . Fabled Passage could also be used to trigger revolt on Push.

All in all these are the changes I would make:

I love this deck. I made a Jund deck with Kresh the Bloodbraided at the helm. I really like the how your commander actually works with the theme. As far as suggestions, I would offer Thrummingbird as a strict upgrade over Skyship Plunderer. Same cost, one less power, but you can increase any number of counters on any number of permanents or players by one instead of just a single target.

Skyship Plunderer or Thrummingbird maybe? You would have to get them through somehow, but it is repeatable proliferate (only sort of though in the Plunderer's case)and they come with flying for extra evasion if you pile a bunch of counters on them. Very neat deck, I like it a lot!

Awesome! Its a slightly better Thrummingbird that I used to run but the main reason why I ran Skyship Plunderer was that I really valued the flying damage over the proliferate, since its a bit difficult to have multiple level up creatures out at once (and have them survive) long enough to enjoy the wide spread proliferate instead of a single target. I appreciate the suggestion and ill give it a shot!
