Dire Fleet Raiders (OLD)

Casual Aggro BR (Rakdos) Tribal


"Damnation seize my soul if I give you quarters, or take any from you."

- Edward Teach

Hello, and welcome to the newest episode of standard bannings™!

Due to a recent banning of Rampaging Ferocidon , Ramunap Ruins , Attune with Aether , and everyone's favorite value card Rogue Refiner , standard finds itself in a spot where anyone, I mean anyone, can take the crown as the deck to beat! Let's take a look at our latest contestant!!!

Out of all the tribes introduced and still standing * cough * zombies * cough *, pirates felt like uncharted territory. Going off that hunch, I decided to build what I believe is the optimal color scheme and build for the scallywags. Let's hop ship and get right into it.

Painty the Pirate Who lives on the fringes of standard mtg, Symbol:BSymbol:R Pirates! Aggressive, consistent and fun as can be Symbol:BSymbol:R Pirates! If nautical nonsense be something you wish Symbol:BSymbol:R Pirates! Then go drop some cash and purchase this mess! Symbol:BSymbol:R Pirates! READY Symbol:BSymbol:R PiratesSymbol:BSymbol:R PiratesSymbol:BSymbol:R Pirates Symbol:BSymbol:R Piraaaates! AH AHH AHH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHH... *flute riff*

All right, the focus of this deck is to press the opponent with aggressive and versatile threats. This can be accomplished via aggressive one-drops like Daring Buccaneer and Rigging Runner , your menacing two-drops, and Dire Fleet Neckbreaker .

Cards like Deadeye Tracker , Fathom Fleet Captain , and Forerunner of the Coalition help us to stay in it for the long game.

The versatility of the deck, I believe, is one of its strong points. It is an aggro deck, but some of the cards in the main... and a ton in the sideboard make games two and three feel much more balanced.






this is where deviation is most likely to occur since there are so many options to choose from. These are my choices for best rakdos lands


Here's where everyone will pick me apart the most, but I'll still go through it.


And that concludes today's broadcast of standard bannings™! I truly hope you all had a wonderful time. Until next time, and don't forget HAPPY TAPPING OUT!
