Deck Time: UW Tempo

We know History of Benalia is a good card, but what about other Sagas? Some of them are very strong in limited, at the very least, so why not try them in constructed.

I like Warsail Marauder and Dire Fleet Daredevil, but they both have problems. The Marauder’s ability just doesn’t do much, if all creatures you control already have evasion, and Daredevil is of the wrong color.
