    Re: Pirate Stompy

    POPEYE STOMPY (at least my mana-screwed version) IS a thing that can win in Legacy.
    Here's the proof on XMage, and the decklist.
    Note that in the first game, opponent has NO board at all turn 5!

    I also had very competitive loss to D&T, Manaless Dredge and Elves.

    Decided to dust off Popeye Stompy for my weekly and went 2-1. Lost to Burn, beat Jund Plug and BR Reanimator. Highlights include...

    List below, though it really hasn't been updated recently and the sideboard is a mess. One card I'm intrigued by to test is Mystical Dispute, since it gets around Chalice.

    ☠️ m a i n ☠️
    4 Rishadan Cutpurse
    3 Rishadan Footpad
    2 Kitesail Freebooter
    2 Hostage Taker
    4 Skyship Plunderer
    2 Parallax Tide
    2 Hoodwink
    4 Chalice of the Void
    3 Tangle Wire
    4 Siren's Ruse
    4 Force of Will
    1 Umezawa's Jitte
    3 Chrome Mox
    2 Cavern of Souls
    4 Ancient Tomb
    4 City of Traitors
    4 Saprazzan Skerry
    4 Polluted Delta
    2 Underground Sea
    2 Island

    s i d e b o a r d
    2 Sorcerous Spyglass
    2 Flusterstorm
    2 Trinisphere
    3 Leyline of the Void
    1 Helm of Obedience
    1 Sword of Fire and Ice
    2 Dismember
    2 Kitesail Freebooter

    4 Forerunner of the Coalition is tech.

    Then you can run toolbox popeyes like Dreamcaller Siren, Hostage Taker, Dire Fleet Poisoner, and maybe even Admiral Beckett Brass (cast off Caverns mana).

    Re: Pirate Stompy

    Even with the Companion nerf, I wonder what a Pirate Stompy list would look like with Yorion as companion - lots of ETB triggers that can snowball quickly into something stupid.

    Maybe even a a little white splash for Eldrazi Displacer/Soul Herder for extra hilarity.

    Definitely think this is the right direction.

    Re: Pirate Stompy

    With the Companion nerf, is this any better than just casting Ghostway for 5 less mana, or using Eldrazi Displacer?

    Yorion requires having a lower probability to open with Sol Lands or Chalice, which automatically makes the stompy shell worse.
