Hyperalgialysis on SEA CREATURES!!!!

1 month ago

I run a very similar deck to this, with slightly different top deck manipulation but the goal is the same. Simic Sky Swallower is pretty amazing to include. Also if you have Steam Vents a few Boil is game breaking with the Stormtide Leviathan out. I know this next part hurts, but fetch lands are so important in a deck like this. Thinning out your library could mean the difference between winning and losing. I also keep my deck at 20 lands, 8 of which are fetch lands. A solid draw spell is pretty important too, Telling Time is pretty good since you can do it with the temple up before the trigger to put a creature on top, Sea Gate Oracle is good card advantage too.

Needs an update with a Pandemonium and Boil. Maybe splash to sideboard in Tsunami? Too bad the mana cost is prohibitive or I'd suggest Inundate. For posterity, all these suggestions were made during the Hurricane Harvey update.

Thanks for your suggestions Ziembski. The initial version of this deck had every piece of Blue dedicated hate you could imagine, including all of the cards you suggested. However, over the past week or so, I was beginning to notice how narrow each piece of hate was in the context of a multiplayer game. Since then, I've transitioned the deck into a full-blown Stax machine and should probably change the name/description to reflect that. Boil definitely has a place among my all-time pieces of hate, but now I'm trying to tune this deck towards hating out multiple EDH strategies.

Not sure if I'm seeing right, but You mention that You hate Blue and don't run Boiling Seas or Boil? Or at least Scald or Curse of Marit Lage.

DudelRok on Proxies: How to handle them ...

1 month ago

I don't proxy and I don't like them. I've slowly acquired stuff over time, and I've learned to deal with a lot of super fast obnoxious EDH stuff with low tech answers people were not expecting.

For a long time I was running Boil, and Tsunami as my response to control heavy metas, and eventually didn't have to cast it anymore because people were simply afraid to mess with my stuff at the cost of having their mana base nuked.

When dealing with super fast mana rock nonsense, I started running 3 drop artifact removal like the Manglehorn and Reclamation Sage. Naturalize before their printing.

If I can't keep up with you, slowing you down works just as well.

I've looked into Prismatic Omen. It is a very good card and prevents being blown out by Blood Moon. However, it opens you up to landwalk type effects and land destruction like Boil. For these reasons, I have chosen to go with Burgeoning for now, at least. I appreciate your input gatorgoat0339.You are the first person in over a year to leave a comment, thank you!

Oloro_Magic on Taking Turns

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, and to a lesser degree Minamo, School at Water's Edge are cards that I personally believe are musts for mono-blue turns, the reason is simple Choke and Boil do actually see sideboard play; these are islands while not actually being islands.

CardTyrant on Walking the Sahara Desert

Since you will be using your Deserts to cause some kind of destruction, you might think about using Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator, even though they do not go well with your theme, they will help. They could be your oasis in your desert theme.

Painted Bluffs and Survivors' Encampment are deserts that can tap for any color mana. I would also add in search lands like Evolving Wilds to help get your landfall triggers.

Hope you like my suggestions. Ask for what to take out for the suggestions, the lands are easy. I would trade them out for your basics. I would take out Boil and Acid Rain for your "oasis" cards, just because they target specific cards. Not much help if someone is playing black/white/red.
