, I have been somewhat preoccupied with making a deck around them. I now have two separate Pirate decks. Of course one is just a jumbled mess of fun Pirates, created as sort of a brainstorm, inspiring me into finding any good strategies among them. But after many years of toil, I have finally perfected my second Pirate deck. Use the following deck to plunder your enemies and send them to Davy Jones’ Locker (and other archaic idioms).

Allow me to quote one of my many opponents:
“It’s not really annoying. It more depressing than it is annoying.”
Most of my enemies have fallen into despair after playing against this deck for good reason: usually, they have nothing in play. With each passing Pirate, they are forced to pay for their permanents, and more often than not they can’t pay up. That’s when I beat the ever-lovin’ tar out of them.
