Aethertide Whale Discussion

The7thBobba on Charged Up

Well, mate. when you have the budget for it, I'd highly recommend: Scrapper Champion, Aether Chaser, Aethertide Whale, Lightning Runner, Aetherwind Basker, Greenbelt Rampager, Confiscation Coup, Aethersquall Ancient, Bristling Hydra, Aethertorch Renegade, Aetherworks Marvel. Good gogds, I realize that more than half of these cards don't fit the idea of the deck, and all they do is do something with energy counters. Anyways, stay frosty!

Run some dual lands. Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Botanical Sanctum, Port Town, and Fortified Village are all good options for Bant colored lands to fix your mana base. I think that you should run more bombs. Verdurous Gearhulk is one of my favorite cards in standard right now. Also, if you are playing Bant, why not run Tamiyo, Field Researcher? I would run Fairgrounds Warden in the mainboard, and Stasis Snare in the side, and side it in against Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. Torrential Gearhulk, along with some strong instants such as Disallow and Glimmer of Genius could be fun. Enlightened Maniac is simply not a good card. One more cute idea: run one or two World Breaker, because you can hit multiple targets with one or more Panharmonicon out. You may need a good outlet for all of the energy that you are putting out. Perhaps Aethertide Whale or Aethersquall Ancient, the ancient being able to bounce your stuff and then you can play it again for more Panharmonicon triggers. Confiscation Coup might be a sideboard card. If push comes to shove, then Aetherwind Basker is a beautiful energy outlet. If you need more help, comment on my profile. Also, if you wouldn't mind doing me a favor: if you find my advice helpful, could you recommend my help to others? Thanks! And +1 from me!

theres some decent choices to replace Torrential Gearhulk like Sphinx of the Final Word, Aethertide Whale, Noxious Gearhulk, Docent of Perfection  Flip, your choice.

for kalitas, i would say Aethersphere Harvester then put any creature to crew it.

I had a sweet draft on Friday for a 3-0. I picked up two Cloudblazers and was already in U/W. Turns out, Aether Swooper is good. Aethertide Whale is also very good.

Just playtesting the deck on here a bit, I'm finding that a lot of the early-game energy is just feeding into cards like Aether Theorist and Shielded Aether Thief to generate really solid card advantage. Even the Deadlock Trap consumes a few points in energy dealing with creatures. Late game, the energy that the Aethertide Whale generates is almost always going straight into Aethersquall Ancient as well.

I'll definitely consider those cards though and move all of them into my sideboard/maybe-board. Thanks!

Have you considered Aethertide Whale over multiform wonder? It can power aetherworks marvel on its own and also protect itself....just a suggestion

Aethertide Whale with Multiform Wonder was my MVP. 10-point life swing with evasion each turn, bounce whale, get more energy, etc.

Also Mechanized Production + Pacification Array was amazing.

I went 3-1 at my prerelease with a sweet grixis control deck. I had 10 removal spells, not counting the Fireforger's Puzzleknot, 2x Take into Custody, Fourth Bridge Prowler, Dark Intimations, Cruel Finality, ad Leave in the Dust in the sideboard. Foil promo Gonti's Aether Heart.

1x Leave in the Dust

1x Unlicensed Disintegration

1x Daring Demolition

1x Shock

1x Die Young

1x Underhanded Designs

1x Vengeful Rebel

1x Cruel Finality

1x Subtle Strike

1x Pacification Array

1x Gifted Aetherborn

1x Prophetic Prism

1x Implement of Combustion

1x Implement of Examination

1x Scrapheap Scrounger

1x Experimental Aviator

1x Gonti's Aether Heart

1x Aether Chaser

1x Gearseeker Serpent

1x Multiform Wonder

1x Aethertide Whale

1x Mechanized Production

1x Freejam Regent

8x Swamp

4x Mountain

4x Island

1x Island

By far the best card in this deck is Multiform Wonder. When combined with any other energy producing card, like Gonti's Aether Heart, Aethertide Whale, or even Mechanized Production on it, it's an evasive 10-point life swing each turn.

I also had the most epic win ever. I was at 3 life, then played Mechanized Production on my Pacification Array, which let me tap out his board each turn and i got up to 8 Pacification Arrays once I was at 1 life.
