Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle

Legendary Creature — Kraken

Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle enters the battlefield tapped with 5 slumber counters on it.

As long as Arixmethes has a slumber counter on it, it's a land. (It's not a creature.)

Whenever you cast a spell, you may remove a slumber counter from Arixmethes.

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.

Okay, thats what I meant. by using Quirion Druid you could stop Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle from being a 12/12 and him only be a 2/2.

Not sure what you mean by "take away" Arixmethes, but if Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle is currently a land then your opponent can use Quirion Druid to turn it into a 2/2 creature.

Even if Arixmethes still has slumber counters on it, it will get turned into a creature in this example because the effect from the Druid that makes it a creature has a newer timestamp than Arixmethes' own ability making it a land. If all the slumber counters are removed then Arixmethes will stay a 2/2 because the Druid's effect changing the P/T has a newer timestamp than the printed P/T.

I'm going to make Geography a little bit like devotion for land types.

Geography cares about the number of different types of lands you control. This doesn't just mean the five basics. This includes Gate , Lair , and yes even Fortification . In total, the game recognizes 13 full Subtypes. Technically 15 with Dryad Arbor and Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle when he is a land. Here is a list of land Subtypes

Omnath, Locus of Balance

Legendary Creature - Elemental

Trample, Haste, Protection from colorless sources.

Geography - At the beginning of your upkeep, you may choose one for each unique subtype among lands you control: Gain 3 life, draw a card, put a -1/-1 counter on target creature, deal 3 damage to any target, put+1/+1 counter on target creature.


Unite the Fronts


Geography - At the beginning of your upkeep, you gain life equal to the number of different land types you control.

Burn the Civilizations


Burn the Civilizations deals X damage divided as you choose among up to X targets.

Geography - You may have up to X target players discard up to a number of cards equal to the number of land types you control.

Omnath was designed to keep Eldrazi in mind, assuming they would be seen yet again - even if in small amounts. Mechanically it's almost worthless, but flavorfully it's spot on.

I just got off a 15 hour shift. Please take that into consideration when evaluating them. I'm extremely brain fogged here.

Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura plus a potential Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle or Bloom Tender if within budget (in addition to Gyre Engineer ).

Maybe Laboratory Maniac as a substitute for Jace, Wielder of Mysteries ?

Umbral Mantle also works with Viridian Joiner , Priest of Titania or Gyre Sage .

Some better counterspells would fit nicely as well.

Retreat to Coralhelm + Llanowar Scout + Trade Routes + a basic land = INFINITE LANDFALL!!!!

And Hedron Crab would be a nice Win-Con with this combo.

I'm running this combo in my Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle EDH Deck.
