Bident of Thassa Discussion

Heliogabale on Executive Order 13767

1 day ago

Cool deck!

I am bringing suggestions from my own build, We Don't Need No Education

For your protection issues with your commander: Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner are good creature-type shields; I also run Diplomatic Immunity and Privileged Position .

Hope this helps!

triproberts12 on Look out Knight Tribal, a new jank tribal is here

1 week ago

This is a challenging tribe to build around. I would recommend checking out Saffron Olive's video on finding the competitive advantage of your tribe. Also, Tomer built a phoenix tribal deck for Commander Clash not too long ago. Watch the end to see how he wins, because it's pretty great.

In terms of specific cards, I think Mana Echoes would go well, since you need a lot of mana to enable phoenixes. Thundermaw Hellkite could be good. Lose Temple of the False God and Dormant Volcano , though, because those are awful cards. The former because it's useless as a 3rd, 4th, or 5th land, and the latter because it's just asking to be strip-mined and is both slow and makes colorless mana.

Finally, you might want to consider adding a second color. For example, in blue, you gain access to Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift (It's freaking Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite in your deck), Sprite Noble , Stormtide Leviathan , Windstorm Drake , Warden of Evos Isle , Windreader Sphinx , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Distant Melody , Mistform Warchief , Faces of the Past , Riptide Shapeshifter , Saheeli's Artistry , Sakashima's Student , Sakashima the Impostor , Metamorphic Alteration , Phantasmal Image , Clone , Quicksilver Gargantuan , Protean Raider , Mirror Image , Gigantoplasm , Stunt Double , Clever Impersonator , Dack's Duplicate , Phyrexian Metamorph , Coastal Piracy , and Bident of Thassa .

In white, you get Archon of Redemption , Energy Storm , Magus of the Moat (and Moat if you have unlimited money), Radiant, Archangel , Serra Aviary , Soulcatcher , Spirit of the Spires , Harsh Mercy , Shared Triumph , Kindred Boon , Mirror Entity , Radiant Destiny , . Going into Jeskai also gives you Teferi's Moat and Thunderclap Wyvern .

Tibor and Lumia would be my choice for an Izzet commander, Aurelia, the Warleader would be my choice for Boros, and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus + Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker would be my choice for Jeskai.

Dete on [WU Flying] Aces High

if the thing you want is to have a deck focused on flying creatures or spells without good or bad additions, why not make a commander deck? if you already got the colors figured out you could use Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, Azor, the Lawbringer or even Medomai the Ageless. with that combination you got a lot of ways to control the board and protection for your creatures, and add 40 more cards to the deck. Aboshan's Desire, Flood, Tidal Flats, Spirit Bonds, Invocation of Saint Traft, Angelic Favor, Entreat the Angels, Tidal Surge, Decree of Justice, Battle Screech, March of Souls, Descend upon the Sinful, Storm Herd are cards that you could use in commander but not in this deck... if you want to have a reliable way to trigger Sigil of the Empty Throne you can use Flickering Ward, Shimmering Wings, Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Viscerid Armor, Ephara's Enlightenment and others. Aven Mindcensor, Mana Short, Boomerang, Standstill, Magus of the Moat, Bident of Thassa, Sigil of the New Dawn, Hindering Light, Supreme Verdict.

                                                                                                             ooor make a pauper deck edh or a normal one... :P

Probably not budget friendly but my deck that I use goes a similar route as yours maybe you can get some ideas: Affinity?. And this is what I ran when it was in standard: Affinity. The only real thing to get from that one is Bident of Thassa. With all the guys hitting for damage you draw what 5 cards per combat step?

Pal00ka on Atlantis!

Quicksilver Fountain is another way to turn on islandwalk and slow down opponents' at the same time.

Being able to connect consistently with combat damage opens up some fun avenues to explore. Coastal Piracy and Bident of Thassa for card advantage; equipment like Sword of the Animist, Quietus Spike, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Mask of Memory, Prying Blade, Rogue's Gloves, Specter's Shroud, and Spellbinder all give different options depending on what you feel you need more of; and for redundancy Thassa, God of the Sea is clutch.

I cannot imagine merfolk do not engage with sea monsters and they would definitely give you some late-game push. Ones that spring to mind are Scourge of Fleets, Stormsurge Kraken, Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep, and Stormtide Leviathan.

In addition to your pillowfort pieces I would also consider AEtherize to bounce an attack and Equilibrium to bounce threats as you play your merfolk.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh could be potent with all of your sideways turning. To complement this fact and reinforce merfolk's weaknesses (aka aerial anything) vehicles could work. Smuggler's Copter comes readily to mind.

If you are looking for more ways to turn creature types in to zombies then Arcane Adaptation is right up your alley. Diregraf Captain and Plague Belcher are excellent ways to punish opponents for your zombies dying, and a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar or Altar of Dementia would make sure this happens often. Undead Warchief is another anthem effect for your zombies while also making cheaper if Rooftop Storm is not in play. Death Baron coupled with Whip of Erebos and Bident of Thassa is just downright mean.

kbackus on Sai Artifact Storm

I've been running Sai since he was released albeit as a thopter swarm deck so its a little different. However, I'd like to recommend Kindred Discovery over Bident of Thassa and Krark-Clan Ironworks over Ashnod's Altar. They're slightly more mana intensive but I've found they make up for it in the long run.
