Hey everyone! I know you have all missed me writing these while the Midweek Magics have been ones that didn’t require deck lists. This week we are going to be rocking some The Lost Caverns of Ixalan Constructed so I have returned to hook you up with the easy routes to victory.
Don’t worry, I don’t have some elaborate opening to keep blabbering on about. Just some event info and then we’ll get to the deck lists. I didn’t forget about you budget people either, I know you don’t want to blow through a ton of wild cards just to win some rares.

You know I’m about that Jurassic Park life and your opponent needs to hold onto their butt when you’re coming at them hot and fast down the dino trail. You have Ixalli's Lorekeeper and Intrepid Paleontologist to ramp out your dino horde. Once Bonehoard Dracosaur and Palani's Hatcher come down, they are going to make your opponent extinct.
This Pirate crew is led into battle by Breeches, Eager Pillager and Captain Storm, Cosmium Raider. You basically rip off a fast start with Kitesail Larcenist, Braided Net, and Abrade clearing the way for your rowdy crew to mess the opponent’s day up.
One problem is the mana base because there isn’t an Izzet manland and you really don’t want to be playing a slow land like Promising Vein in this deck. I went with a couple of Cavern of Souls since it can help cast twenty-three cards in your deck when naming Pirates. I didn’t want to add too many because you don’t want to get your non-pirates stuck in your hand.
I don’t need to get too in depth because you know what we’re doing here. Play creatures, turn them sideways. Sanguine Evangelist pumps up the jams while providing his own batty crew. Everyone has a great time except the person being attacked.
This is built with the expectations of playing against a lot of creature decks (as MWM tends to be). Kill everything in sight with Dead Weight, Bitter Triumph and Chupacabra Echo. Mess their hand up with Deep-Cavern Bat and Skullcap Snail. Then summon the bat god to come in on clean up duty.
Budget White Aggro
While missing some of the key rares from the mono white beats deck, this can still pull off a descent facsimile. Go wide and catch someone who stumbled with your pumped-up team of dorks.
