Deck discussion for Avast Ye Scallywags! [Pioneer]

I don't know much of pioneer, but in modern the modal spells are thought to bring in two decktypes
Charbelcher and ooops all spells (balustrade selfmill of entire library)
More details in my modal spells article.

Alas, wheres them "dire fleet daredevil"
With first stryke that steals from their very grave ?
They would do well with them neckbreakers :)

Modal lands have no place in my belcher deck

I made this deck forever ago, right when pioneer started, and I think i'm gonna keep it as is. Modal lands do intrigue me though, and I'll use them in newer decks for sure.

I dislike pioneer as a format, but some of my decks accidentally fit in that area

Are you kidding alfred ?
Modal lands are perfect for Belcher as it doesn't "detect" them. You can play one normal land and 20 modal lands without a bother. It would be almost insane not to use them in belcher.

Yes but they only produce one kind, so it’s kind of pointless

There's a mythic, a rare and and uncommon set in each color.
That's at least 12 mana of the same color. Granted 8 of each color comes into play tapped, but they may help simian spirit guide to pull of an early seething song. It's possible to build a 60 modal spell lands deck.
The modal land/lands wont work of course but building a deck with 55 modal lands and 4 charbelchers and a basic land is pretty possible. You can play A total of 20 lands that demands you pay three lifes to untap them.

That I will do, but I will do 50 modal spells 6 draw spells

Posted 16 September 2020 at 12:41


Yeah, draw is nice :)
Gotta get the damn thing first :)
25 modal lands would be optimal, and amulet of vigor to support it.
It can be 2-3 colors so study the modals to get just the right tricks as a backup.
But you should play red as one color just to be able to play through moons.

All my spells will be modal, but probably blue red green, but I have no idea yet

Posted 16 September 2020 at 17:16


Definitely go blue for force of negation

Not modal Not draw Not budget don’t care
