  • Dr. Burn Crow

    I like this man.

  • Giby86 .

    It might be time to upgrade my Ramirez DePietro deck. Yarr.

  • That’s awesome! Is that a goat on his right?

  • Robson Florencio

    piratas tribal commander on the way!

  • Jonathan Reynolds

    Last night I threw together a superfriends EDH deck. It may be short lived…

  • Chuck

    Very cool with Kari Zev.

  • Deadly Berry

    I don’t know how to say this, Nekusar… PIRATES!!

  • Cthulhooo

    Isn’t that absolutely crazy? A repeated mind control that doesn’t end when this dies.

  • Tolle

    So, you have to damage the permanent with combat damage. Which means you probably will lose that pirate or the creature damaged will die. You also will need to someone make the creature block which is hard (not impossible) without green. Seems like a meh card. The only real use is to steal planeswalkers and to build a deck on the hope your opponent is running them? Bad idea.

    • Animar, Elemental Master

      I think the correct way to read is that you gain control of a permanent of your choice from a player you hit with a pirate

      • Tolle

        Fair enough. I misread it. That makes it better, marginally.

  • MrAptronym

    EDH pirate tribal here I come. I can finally expand beyond pretending with Thada Adel.

    • Alex Yaeger

      But you can already do it! It isn’t very good… but… hey… there’s plenty of flavorful cards available.

      • MrAptronym

        There are legendary pirates, but none of them have actual tribal support, you can build a pirate theme deck, but not really a cohesive mechanical pirate tribal.

  • CMK

    I love the card, but hate the use of the name ‘Beckett’; so damn cliche.

  • Shagoth

    Well, I know what will probably be a popular commander next block…
    Also way to go to drop masterpieces at the set involving Dinosaurs and Pirates, it would seem like there’s be a ton of treasure and monstrous secrets. Flavor fail.

  • Cooper Jurgen ZIlkenat

    Cool commander, just have to wait….. like 3 months ish

  • Aurore

    The more I look at this guy the more i don’t like him. They could have at least given him some evasion or something. If I can’t get him through my enemy’s defenses, he does nothing, and if my enemy has no creatures there isn’t a lot I can steal.

    • BusinessmanGinger

      You wouldn’t really want to get through with him necessarily, you would have other pirates that have some unblockable such as Daring Saboteur or a flyer such as the Dreamcaller Siren or even Kari Zev and Fathom Fleet Captain who have menace, all of these things make it harder for your opponent to block at least one of your pirates. Now I believe that the text says three or more pirates instead of one which is a bit of a drawback but still I don’t think it will be too hard to steal some things, and even if you don’t, your opponent will put all of their strength into trying to kill this guy or the pirates that are swinging at them to defend themselves. You’re right in saying he could be better, no question, but I don’t think he is too bad :)

      • Aurore

        What if I don’t want to play with other Pirates?

        • BusinessmanGinger

          Then why would you play this card?

          • Aurore

            Because I want a Grixis Commander that steals stuff.

          • BusinessmanGinger

            Then I can’t help you there fam x3

          • Aurore

            Okay yeah. This card is garbage for my purposes then. Even in Pirate Tribal EDH it’ll be hard to use this guy well if you have to hit with three of them.

          • wizkidweb

            Marchesa, the Black Rose doesn’t steal stuff, but you can use theft cards to steal creatures, put +1/+1 counters on them, and then kill them. When they come back, they’re yours until they leave the battlefield.

        • Bones Bones Bones

          Then play Xenograft.

    • Chuck

      “…if I can’t get him through my enemy’s defenses he does nothing…”
      You don’t need to get him through your enemy’s defenses. You need to get a Pirate through your enemy’s defenses.

      “…if my enemy has no creatures there isn’t a lot I can steal.”
      Planeswalkers… Enchantments… Artifacts… still sounds like a lot to me.

      • Aurore

        If I don’t have a lot of (or any) pirates that’s the same thing. I shouldn’t have to be dependent on having a bunch of other cards for my commander to do something, especially with all the board wiping and pinpoint removal. And it’s not one pirate. It’s three or more.

        • Chuck

          “I shouldn’t have to be dependent on having a bunch of other cards for my commander to do something”
          So… you are saying that Kaalia of the Vast is a bad Commander?

          “And it’s not one pirate. It’s three or more.”
          You state categorically about a hypotetical blurred card.

          • Aurore

            Kaalia isn’t dependent on them, she enables them. She makes it easier to play the Angels, Dragons, and Demons. She doesn’t have an effect that says something like “if you have an Angel, Dragon, or Demon in play do blank” there’s a difference between having a commander that wants me to have a bunch of pirates in my deck and a commander that needs me to have a bunch of pirates in play.
            And I might state it categorically, but that’s based on images of a far less blurry card in which it looks like it says three.

  • Maxedout

    What is this stealing planswalkers with a lightning bolt no no no also totally want pirates versus dinisours commander duel deck I’m going to have to build both

    • Maxedout

      Mis read not with bolt

    • kasigah

      You have to deal damage with a Pirate to take control of something mate

      • Dr. Burn Crow

        Unblockable would be fun. Let’s get thiefy.

  • BusinessmanGinger

    I believe that is correct :)

    • Mikka Mendenall

      as long as the planeswalker you want to snag isnt a land, its fine

      • DarthinvaderIX

        Imprisoned in the moon nerf bliz pls

  • Random Guy

    I am so pumped for a Pirate and Dinosaur Tribal set, especially one that’s so colorful.

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    I like how yes, tribal would be smart with the Admiral, but it’s not JUST about pirates. It’s all about theft and thievery.
    My god, do I love that.

  • kmk888

    If this really says “one or more” this is a very impressive card. Generally only one use of the second ability is enough, and he doesn’t have to stick around or be present in combat. It already combines favorably with both Kari Zev and Skyship Plunderer.

    • Aurore

      I’m pretty sure it says three or more, which makes him very unimpressive to me. If three of my creatures can hit you in the face, generally I’m winning anyway.

      • kmk888

        Yeah I think so too. That’s what they had on other forums.

      • Vizzerdrix

        Well kari zhev and the new blue enchantment could make ragavan a pirate and then any other creature attacking would also be a pirate so it shouldn’t be that difficult to get 3 creatures to attack, getting through might be tricky and then also as you said you don’t really need much help after that. The anthem effect would be more than enough at that point

    • Jazzyboy1

      Another site has a slightly less blurry image, and it definitely says three or more.

  • Evan Livish

    uh grixis the color of a cold blooded murder who thoroughly enjoys his craft. These are also the colors of pirates as they are criminals(black), reckless and free living(red) and they are either water or better yet air based(blue). The three colors together suggest that this is a true pirate lord.

  • Vizzerdrix

    Hell yes, was super happy with kari zhev and sad she couldn’t go into my Ramirez Depeirto edh deck I was building and now she can also the deck doesn’t have to rely on being mostly sea monsters

  • Zakarias

    you know I really hope the crew mechanic comes back, even just for a few cards. You know, for Pirate ships, or just ships in general…

    • I.R.Shnow

      It came back

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Is this a lady or is this James May from Top Gear?

  • Mykael W Mitchell

    It is it is a glorious thing to be a pirate king

    • Julna Buras

      Is there an eternal format card called the Modern Major General?

  • Alex

    I would so dearly love to create a Pirate EDH deck, however, I feel even with the new tribal tech and new cards in this set: it just can’t compete in a finely-tuned meta.

    • Giby86 .

      If you’re playing in a “finely-tuned meta” you’re doing EDH wrong.
