    If there is a lot of support for creating Treasure tokens, this could be a fun EDH deck.

  • Jonathan Reynolds

    In addition to seeming like a fun commander on her own, she would be a great addition to my Grenzo, Havoc Raiser deck. Its tempo is right after Grenzo, it has haste, and it generates additional mana for casting other people’s cards.

  • Blahblahblahbla

    Mono red creatures that create mana rocks? Bizarre! Why didn’t they just make these Gold tokens though?

    • Guest

      Probably because of improvise, gold tokens didn’t have to tap when you sacrificed them for mana so it would effectively make 2 mana if you were casting an improvise spell. If they had to make a new token might as well name it something else.

  • Shagoth

    A good pirate commander?
    Mono red artifact commander?
    A red commander that manages to be aggro?
    A red ramp commander?
    Art that is having way too much fun?
    A weaker, red version of Tireless Tracker?

    This brings a lot to the table.

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    I could make this work. I’ve got plans for this.

  • Jude

    …wat

    I mean…i love that this thing does a lot to the table but….wat.

    Im guessing the real value of this thing is gonna be the fact that it wants to swing in nlt turn 3 and ramp you ahead for a big scary bomb on turn 4. Also fixing??? Im afraid this thing may be one of those weird rogue elements that is gonna be either everywhere or nowhere

  • CMK

    A small shame they couldn’t have simply reused Gold tokens, which function exactly the same, if I’m not mistaken. It does make some sense though, that not all treasure would be gold, etc.

    • Hedronal

      Also not all treasure might be for mana sources, maybe some will do something else.

    • TogetherAlone

      I agree, gold tokens would have been better since there are already two(?) cards that make them already.

      • Hedronal

        But they get double mana with improvise, as golds don’t tap to mana.

        • Brendan Noonan

          yeah cos god forbid improvise actually be good haha

    • alexander macrae

      Gold tokens didn’t need to tap to sacrifice. With Improvise still being in Standard (I think) you’d be able to use a Gold token to make two mana with an Improvise spell. Treasure needing to be tapped stops that.

      • CMK

        That’s an excellent point. I wasn’t considering the Standard environment, and having Gold here would probably be too strong.

    • TogetherAlone

      So apparently the reason they didn’t do this is the artifact is also going to have the type “treasure” as apparently that matters for some cards in the set.

  • Deadly Berry

    Turn 1 Bird.
    Turn 2 Attack/create token.
    Turn 3 Attack/create token/Play your land/sacrifice tokens and cast something with CMC 6.

    Best case scenario I know, still decent imo.

    • NuZion

      Who is attacking on turn 2 to create the token? The token is only created when Captain Storm attacks.

      • syn

        If you play birds of paradise on turn one, and make your land drop on two, you have three mana to cast this card, it has haste so it can attack that turn.

        • NuZion

          Ah… Got it. Thanks.

  • jaya

    voltron wanna be?

  • Bostorket

    Shout “AVAST, ME HEARTIES” as loud as you can when Captain Lannery Storm attacks: get two bootie tokens instead.

  • Cthulhooo

    I’m in chaaaarrrge now!

  • Chris Tomsky

    I really like it, but 2/2 haste turn 3 seems really easy to block and kill, yknow? Specially when its making you free mana. I guess you could use the mana for something like a shock or unsummon or fatal push as a combat trick to save her. Kind looking forward to making a deck with her and Kari Zev! Pirate ladies away!

  • Dragoncastermaster

    so she comes down you attack get the treasure sack it she gets +1/+0 then use the mana to cast a one mana pump spell so that’s probably another +2 power so that’s a five power attack on turn 3 out of nowhere
