    well, that might just be the best mono red pirate so far

    • TogetherAlone

      Nah this has nothing on Lannery Storm. He is guaranteed to see play

      • galen150

        stormy only sees play if revel in riches decks work alright. this is a reasonably costed repeatable act of treason, and in a set where we have a janky goblin bombardment, and some other sac effects, also ends up being removal. this guy is more likely to see play than stormy i think

        • TogetherAlone

          I disagree he is another haste creature for Ramunap which is losing two of its early drops post rotation. this slides right in as a two of.
          Also this card is very bad in standard, it is very easy to remove, and comes down at four mana where you can’t afford to be playing a do nothing.

    Drink up me hearties yo ho

    Memba Yasova?

  • Caleb Halbrook

    This is a limited bomb

    “Hey yo, Scarab God, being a pirate is really fun y’know!”

  • Gżeś Wrona

    Anti exerting dragon

  • Bobit

    Lot worse than Hostage Taker.

    • galen150

      eh, this is repeatable and you get it instantly. plus, you can sac them after you’re done with em.

      • TogetherAlone

        This is much worse than hostage taker. This you won’t even be able to activate until the turn after playing it. Not only that but I suspect lightning strike is going to make a huge comeback and its going to feel really bad to slam this on 4 and have it removed by a two mana spell immediately.

        • Shagoth

          In EDH, this is much better. This is basically a gradual insurrection, and you should probably put this in a red sack deck. With Phyrexian and Ashnod’s alter, you’re probably going to take over the game in a turn or so.

          • TogetherAlone

            but for the same mana you could actually insurrection and win the game to boot.

          • Shagoth

            You only have so many insurrection effects you can put in a deck. This serves a different purpose by being a grindy, gradual card. This can continue taking over creatures after you sac everyone else’s creatures with an insurrection anyways.

      • Bobit

        Hostage Taker does something even if it dies before spending more man on it (basically taps a creature, or maybe kills tokens or thing with ETB downsides) plus it permanently improves your board state. I’d rather pay 4 mana for a single creature that lasts forever than 4 mana per turn for a new creature that has haste, although it’s definitely a tough decision.

    • Robert FakeLastName

      is that a new card or an old one?

  • magicalfollower

    This will be a bomb in Limited.

  • Aidan23

    That art though

  • Dr. Gitrog Crow

    I wish it changed the cards creature type to pirate….

  • Julna Buras


  • Edward

    A good body with a repeatable steal effect. This will definitely be good in Pirate edh. Also obligatory “this will be broken with Training Grounds” comment

  • MrAptronym

    Hmm, my Fumiko deck might be getting a bit pirate heavy for a samurai.

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Hoo boy. Admiral Brass might get herself at the helm of an EDH deck after all, with this and a few other pirates on crew.

    • Edward

      Don’t forget the honorary Pirate that is Marchesa. Who doesn’t love getting your creatures back consistently after they die and triggering Raid/ other ETB effects multiple times?

  • niz-mizzet

    Love the orc in the background

  • Dave

    Uuh, nice, this could find a place in my Yasova EDH deck.

  • Happy The Cat

    have you ever been so sexy you could convince a Wall to switch teams?

    • Robert FakeLastName

      30 cha + 20 ranks in bluff it could happen

  • sansmyhands

    So I feel like the rarities on this and Rowdy Crew got switched. :/

  • davee

    It’s stupid, but I love this+infinite mana combos inEDH, but he may be too fun to play on his own and will draw hate.
    Though the 4 thoughness makes him weak to bolt so this guy wont even see Modern

  • Darkray Accel

    So sad he isnt legendary…SO SAD!!!
