Unholy Heat

Some thoughts from a fellow Murktide player:

Expressive Iteration over Serum Visions for greater card advantage.

I would add more disruption such as Unholy Heat and Spell Pierce over cards like Manamorphose and Izzet Charm.

This is more of a meta call but cutting 1 or 2 Ledger Shredders might be a good idea so your first game isn't miserable against Orcish Bowmasters

I've seen other people say this on here, but running a one of or maybe even 2 Blood Moon would be great in here, I would just cut Fiery Islet for off color fetches such as Misty Rainforest and add an island or two.

I like that you included Stormwing Entity a lot but depending how it plays the Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer would put more pressure on your opponent.

In my opinion Preordain is a delirium enabler... something Dragon's Rage Channeler or Unholy Heat would benefit from izzet Murktide Regent decks.... in the same way Serum Visions fell out of favor due to sorcery speed vs the instant speed of Opt/Consider I'm just not sure the scry 2 matters enough... might be worth it for trying to find sideboard cards ASAP but I dont think I'm sold.

I'd exchange the Sleight of Hand for Consider. You want to fill your graveyard for Delirium for Dragon's Rage Channeler & Unholy Heat and have enough card in the graveyard for the escape cost for Underworld Breach.
Sleight of Hand is only better than Consider against decks that run Orcish Bowmasters.

Your deck has almost 0 removal spells. I'd suggest adding some Lightning Bolt or Unholy Heat you are going to need some form of interaction while your setting up.

Love the idea! Pirates are one of my favorite MtG tribes and doesn’t get nearly enough support. I’ve also tried making a Pirate list for modern. As fun as it is, tribal decks just aren’t that viable. Some things that could help out though are lowering you mana curve, you’re wanting to build aggro but have lots of creatures with CMC 3 or higher, in aggro that’s just too slow. Firstly, if you can afford them, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer. Arguably one of the strongest red cards in play right now. Dire Fleet Poisoner and Fathom Fleet Captain are both great options to keep around, and I after playing a similar list, I think Rigging Runner out performs Daring Buccaneer. Second, your spells are flavorful but ultimately watered down versions of better cards. You’ve got access to Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt and Unholy Heat as 1 mana removal and Terminate or Dreadbore in 2 mana, to name a few. I’d also look into Kolaghan's Command or Unearth as ways to recycle your pirates in the late game. Some hand disruption will also play well with pirates and you have access to Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek. Lastly, while I like Angrath a lot as a planeswalker, I’m not sure a 5 mana walker is the best fit in what wants to be an aggro deck. I think ultimately, by turn 5 you will rather have a definite win-con, and Angrath in here just seems a little “win-more”, without reliably being able to finish the game the turn he is played

Interested to hear peoples thoughts on the viability of Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines in Modern.

On the plus side:

  • it’s almost impossible to kill, being 5 mana gets around Fatal Push and most Prismatic Ending decks. She’s immune to Leyline Binding, Solitude and Fury. And her toughness evades both Lightning Bolt and Unholy Heat… there is very little in the format that can touch her.

  • Her abilities are both offensively powerful and potentially hugely disruptive to the opponents plans. I imagine if she can stay on the field for a few turns in grindier matchups, then the value gained will have almost certainly secured a win.

On the negatives:

  • She does nothing on entry, and you need to play other cards to get value from her.

  • 5 mana is a LOT in modern, and not normally a cost you’d want to be striving towards paying (most mana curves end at 3-4 mana).

So, what are peoples thoughts? Could the card be modern viable, or are there just too many hoops to jump through for this to be useful?

I'd put in 4 Dragon's Rage Channeler and 4 Unholy Heat. Even if Marauder doesn't hit a Topplegeist, hitting one of those two spells is still really strong. Heat is also just one of the strongest removal spells in the format right now.

Mishra's Bauble is a very good card to help you reach delirium, although it might be a bit expensive.

In general, I've found that looting effects (Thrill of Possibility, Cathartic Reunion, Thrilling Discovery) aren't that great in delirium decks. Delirium decks want to get 4 card types in the yard, so stuff that fills the graveyard like Dragon's Rage Channeler along with a bunch of strong midrange creatures, instants, and sorceries usually works pretty well. Looting effects are a lot better at getting specific cards in the graveyard (which basically only applies to Demigod and Kroxa here) for decks like reanimator or dredge, so they are definitely a lot weaker in a deck like yours that only wants to hit delirium.
