I have been considering adding another Aqueous Form , but keep in mind the theme behind this deck is not to utilize the heroic mechanic. It just happened to have some prominence and usefulness. I did take Kheru Spellsnatcher out, mostly because of the high cost, but I left in Archetype of Imagination , as it fits the deck idea very well. I have added Gods Willing and Feat of Resistance to my acquire board, because it could use some more cheap protection for the buffed up creatures, I think.
decent heroic build, i like where youre going, ive built a heroic deck before so in my opinion i would drop Kheru Spellsnatcher and Archetype of Imagination for 2 more Battlewise Hoplite or even Eidolon of Countless Battles also you need to thin your enchantments down, to run a decent heroic deck, you need consistancy in card draw, and only having 2 Aqueous Form is not enough, and in my opinion, Spectra Ward is such a difficult card to bring out for cheap. so again, in my opinion, drop Spectra Ward for another Aqueous Form . also consider adding a couple of Gods Willing or Feat of Resistance for protection.
Skarrgan Pit-Skulk would be useful if only it would read "Power greater than - can't block it.", now it can be blocked by any creature with power 1/2 or more. :(
There are few cards that can totally wreck this deck but every deck has those ultimate hate cards. One of the worst cards for this deck is propably Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite if it hits the battlefield. Other nasty cards are Supreme Verdict and Volcanic Fallout but you can always side Wrap in Vigor against those.
As for Archetype of Imagination , the effect is nice but the card is way too expensive for this deck, also pretty much every creature already has avoidance. I like to keep everything as cheap as possible to keep up the tempo and be able to cast several spells every turn without extra mana ramp.
but have you given thought to adding in 1x Archetype of Imagination . You probably know better then i do, but i just thought of mentioning it because it doesn't seem that bad
Surprised you don't have Archetype of Imagination in this deck.
@gregfiction I accidentally wiped your comment so I'll just respond here :P
Thanks for the support! Krakens are a wonderful thing, and it's great to see some more love for Stormtide Leviathan . I've been playing with him a long time, and I'm glad he's seeing play in other decks too now!
Very interesting suggestions. I might have to try Boon Satyr for ferocious activation. He's easier for me to cast than Savage Knuckleblade , and I can even bestow him late game. I really like how versatile the knuckler is, but I'll have to do some playtesting because I think you might be right here.
Archetype of Endurance is very tempting, I've wrestled with the idea quite a bit, but I've found Archetype of Imagination just absolutely cripples all decks that don't run removal. And being able to swing freely with mana dorks for those last couple points of damage really helps. I might put some Archetype of Endurance in the SB for removal heavy matchups though, because they give me a really hard time.
Honestly, splashing red is one of the better choices I've made. Yes, the mana screw becomes a problem slightly more often, but not enough to be a concern. Red has just provided me with the extra punch I need to close out those close games. + is a beautiful thing when it happens, especially with Tromokratis . I can't say enough good things about Xenagod, pulling a hasty 16/16 Levy with STU feels amazing. I've honestly debated going to 3 of him, but it's too many dead draws for my liking.
If you ever post your deck on here let me know, I'd love to take a look at it!
