AEtherplasm Discussion

Quicksilver Amulet and Natural Order could be some additional cheat in cards. AEtherplasm is a pretty cheeky card too but would require your opponents to attack you. Dramatic Entrance can also be fun but most of these cards don't play well with Primal Surge

I dunno, that Loyal Drake doesn't look much like a starfish or crab...

It may seem innocuous but Sand Squid has always overperformed in my seamonster decks. Coral Capers -- (Budget Seamonsters) was the original with Thassa (which you've seen) but I morphed the deck into Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle (Tidal Trouble).

I had AEtherplasm in my mono-blue deck and it was quite good. Looks a bit like a jellyfish so that's a plus.

I always ran into issues where I would finally have enough ramp or Quicksilver Amulet out to do stuff but because I was open all through the early game I wouldn't have the life to realize my kraken dreams. Fog Bank , Guard Gomazoa , Gomazoa , Spiny Starfish , Wall of Kelp , and Wall of Frost are all good and on-theme, as well as helpful for Thassa's devotion.

Two suggestions.

AEtherplasm This will help a lot with getting your high cmc creatures on the field.

Loyal Drake The best part about having an indestructible commander is having any creature with Lieutenant.

Hey, I have a similar deck to this if you're interested in checking it out. Here it is It Came from Beneath the Sea (mostly) Ver.2. It might give you some ideas. The deck is more focused around leviathan rather than Kraken though. One card I'd recommend is something like Quicksilver Amulet. With the amulet in the deck, you can take out some of your ramp and put in bigger creatures. Whelming Wave would be nice as well if the ramp wasn't in it. AEtherplasm and Alluring Siren could be nice as well.

Have you considered AEtherplasm?

Lol I just realized that AEtherplasm has to block, not become blocked, in order for it to work. Time to rethink this a little bit

Have you considered instead of simic skyswallower and thuming birds AEtherplasm its another way to cheat your big leviathens as suprise blockers

United Conflagration


Join Forces - Each player starting with you may pay X mana. Then each player who paid mana chooses any target. United Conflagration deals X damage to any of those targets.



Creature - Illusion Shapeshifter

: Reveal the top card of your library. If it's a creature card, you may exile it face down. If you do, put Aethermorph on top of your library. You may cast the exiled card as though it had flash.


For United Conflagration, you choose the target after learning how much X is.

Aethermorph is a riff off of AEtherplasm from Guildpact. Oh Ravnica, I love you so.

Make another card that a guild-leader (past or present) would love to play.
