CCDD 092817—Swashbuckler

Cool Card Design of the Day
9/28/2017 - What if Ixalan hadn't pulled back so far on vehicles? One of the pirate mechanics could have been to work well with vehicles. I felt a little bad making just another Spireside Infiltrator but then I realized I wanted a slightly different effect. You see, at the time you tap an Infiltrator to crew a vehicle, it's trigger resolves before that vehicle becomes a creature, so you can't use "target creature you control gets BONUS until EOT" on the vehicle you just crewed. But if you make a static effect while your creature is tapped, then it affects your vehicles (and itself, and your other pirates).


  1. Is 1R Goblin Wardriver a common now? (Yeah, it doesn't block quite as well, but on the other hand there's the crew upside.)
