Spectral Sailor Discussion

Squirrelbacon on Azorius Aggro — Pioneer Edition

3 days ago

I have not played pioneer in a while either, so take what I say with a grain of salt I suppose... There will be a TLDR.

Generally speaking, Weenie Hut can use some of the better token producers and can run with that idea pretty strongly. I'd suggest running 3 or 4 of History of Benalia , 3 of Legion's Landing  Flip, and then you can cut down to 1 of Castle Ardenvale if that helps you mana at all! Curious Obsession is fantastic in these types of decks, and so is Adanto Vanguard , so running 4 of both is your best bet as well. Skymarcher Aspirant is also another 4-of lock in my eyes. Spectral Sailor and Siren Stormtamer are early fliers with upside.

Another option is the run some planeswalker aggression through Gideon(s). Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is probably your best bet, however, my personal favorite version of him is Gideon Blackblade . The passive ability 4/4 indestructible that also gives vigilance, indestructible or lifelink can be very helpful!

If you utilize this type strategy, it does make cutting some creatures and cards overall pretty simple. Luminous Broodmoth just won't work with tokens, so that is probably an easy cut. Search for Azcanta  Flip is too slow, so I think that comes out. I think that Ephara comes out as well since the plan might change to flurry of little creatures between turns 1-2-3, the goal is to be empty handed and threatening to kill by turn 4 or 5. That also means Dream Trawler should go, but I'd understand wanting to keep a late game insurance policy.

TLDR-- Knights/White Weenie with a splash

History of Benalia , Dauntless Bodyguard , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Benalish Marshal

Tempo/ Weenie

Spectral Sailor , Siren Stormtamer , Brazen Borrower , Curious Obsession , History of Benalia , Legion's Landing  Flip

Pride of the Clouds and Mausoleum Wanderer would be fantastic in the deck and aren't to expensive (wander especially as its a strait up better familiar)

Favorable Winds is also pretty solid and very useful against sweepers

Curious Obsession is probably worth running over staggering insight as the half mana cost will generally be better than lifelink

finally im a big fan of Spectral Sailor as its a solid turn 1, its a spirit which is great instant speed pump for wanderer and its late game card draw.

Crow-Umbra on Vadrok and Roll Tier 8

One card I would suggest checking out is Spectral Sailor . I'll have to find the link to the Vadrok Discord, but it's a bit more cEDH focused, or at least high-power combo focused. I've seen spectral Sailor used & referenced quite a bit, since it can be flashed in, and used as a mana sink for the Dockside/Vadrok loop infinite treasures, and draw into additional combo pieces if needed.

Potential Additions:

  1. Spectral Sailor : One of my favourite enablers. You can pass turn and hold up your mana, then flash it in on your opponent's end step if you don't use your mana. Can also draw cards later in the game.

  2. Augury Owl and Spire Owl : Let you rearrange the top of your library for Yuriko's trigger. Although, don't add too many 2 mana enablers since they are pretty slow. I'm currently playing 4 of them in my list.

  3. Swan Song : A very efficient 1 mana counterspell that hits most removal and board wipes.

  4. Coastal Breach : A board wipe that you can generally cast for 3U, but has a cmc of 7.

  5. Blinkmoth Infusion and Draco : When I started playing Yuriko, I was against playing these un-castable cards in my decklist. But they deal an absurd amount of damage and really make your tutors lethal.

Hope that was helpful! Let me know what you think! :)

Daedalus19876 on Endless Forms Most Beautiful: Vadrok EDH [PRIMER]

The changes I'm testing right now, to fit a Cloudstone package and a discount Cephalid Breakfast.

Cut: Wheel of Misfortune , Lightning Bolt , Izzet Charm , Treasonous Ogre , Thing in the Ice  Flip, Rielle, the Everwise , Cephalid Constable .

Added: Whirlpool Warrior , Goblin Engineer , Cloudstone Curio , Lightning Greaves , Intuition , Cephalid Illusionist , Spectral Sailor .

Abridged explanation:

Wheel of Misfortune was just too hard to control effectively, and I can't force my opponents to draw with Narset or Hullbreacher out (also, making it work right often cost too much life if I was the archenemy). Whirlpool Warrior does that trick better.

Cephalid Constable was cute and won me some games, but it always left everyone unhappy at the end of the game. Cephalid Illusionist costs one less mana, mills cards to give Vadrok fuel, and sometimes can help on defense.

Speaking of Illusionist, I'm testing Lightning Greaves to mill my whole deck along with him (by alternating between Illusionist and another creature). I'd rather run Nomads en-Kor , but I'm not running any white... Lightning Greaves can help protect something like Toothy or Con Sphinx anyway, so hopefully it's not TOO bad on its own.

Goblin Engineer can fetch Curio, and Cloudstone Curio can reset Vadrok's mutation, or simply go infinite with Cloud of Faeries and/or Dockside Extortionist (potentially with help from Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip).

Intuition has been in and out before, but I'm testing it to try packages like Lore Drakkis / Snap + Underworld Breach + Dockside Extortionist / Sea-Dasher Octopus (assuming I already have Vadrok on field). At the very least, it's essentially an Entomb for Underworld Breach , since no opponent in their right mind would ever allow me to have that card in hand.

Hey, well done on a budget. Nice Sol Ring and Mutavault promos :)

More flying/unblockable Pirates can help to easier trigger Malcolm and Breaches.

Imagination also makes it so your opponents creatures most likely can't block your creatures because they can't have flying. The only creatures who can block are ones with reach or there's an effect to be able to block creatures with flying.

Sources of repeatable draw when a creature you control does damage or combat damage to a player are good with more flying Pirates.

If Lookout soulbond to Lightning-Rig Crew or Glint-Horn Buccaneer then you draw cards equal to the number of opponents you have. Lookout can change who it's soulbond too which is very helpful.

Some Pirates can repeatedly help to clear the way of blockers to do more damage with Breaches and other Pirates.

Any creature you gain control of with Recruiter becomes a Pirate until end of turn. If that creature does damage to an opponent then it will trigger Breaches and Malcolm.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, having more low CMC Pirates who have the better evasion (flying or unblockable) can help to do combat damage to opponents to trigger Malcolm and Breeches.

Lightning-Rig Crew has great interaction with Malcolm to create treasures and Breeches to exile your opponents cards. Since Rig does damage to each opponent you create a number of treasures equal to the number of opponents you have or exile a card from each opponents library.

Sol Ring is a staple mana rock in Commander that can go in every deck you make. Having more repeatable draw is helpful in Commander and when one of your Commanders has flying then cards that let you draw when you do combat damage to an opponent are consistent options:

Some budget lands to consider adding:

Total at TCG Player: $9.86, see list

If this upgrade interests you then I offer more advice of what cards to consider cutting.

Good luck with your deck.
