Any adventurer can tell you that a pirate captain is dangerous, an evil mage is deadly, and a mind flayer is best avoided at any cost.

The Scavenger and the Mind Flayer crew shows that.

He will inflict fear in most men with all the horrors he have at his disposal.

Want to play with Captain N'ghathrod to give our creatures menace, and to steal something from our opponents graves. Have shapeshifters like Phyrexian Metamorph, Stunt Double and Clever Impersonator to copy great cards, either from us or them. Have Maskwood Nexus or Arcane Adaption to make everything we steal horrors so our commanders effect works on them aswell.

Play Uchuulon And maybe copy it to get alot of copies.

Zellix, Sanity Flayer To get alot of tokens then we mill. And Altar of Dementia to sac, mill and get a token again and again.

Animate Dead, Living Death, Reanimate, Dread Return To get creatures back on our board.

Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Infernal Grasp Cyclonic Rift to control the board state.

Metallic Mimic, Ruin Crab, Black Market Connections, Aboleth Spawn, Rhystic Study, Mirage Mirror, Solemn Simulacrum for utility.

Elder Brain to get one more effect like the captain.

Really likes how this deck plays and behaves. fun concept.
