Breaching Leviathan Discussion

My matchups, by the way (if I can remember):

Round 1, Eldrazi, he didn't really get off the ground though, mana issues I think. As far as I could tell it was mono-black, but I only saw some drones.

Round 2, Mono white Pegasus, the only match I lost- 3 honors of the pure with a lot of 1 & 2 drops.... ouch.

Round 3, Spiders, I actually had lent this guy my spider deck, so I won because I knew every point of his curve...

Round 4, Rats, it was a really solid deck, pack rats are a thing, but so it Stormtide Leviathan...

Round 5, Orzhov Allies, again, hard for aggro to argue much with a Stormtide.

Round 6, Knights, this was close, game 1 was taken by a Stormtide, game 2 she was SO FAST turn 0 2 leylines of sanctity, turn 1 plains, turn 2 plains/ Knight of the White orchid, turn 3 Nykthose, float 6, 2 mirran crusaders, turn 4 float 10, Knight Exemplar, Mirran Crusader but I'd gotten a couple of fatties out- turn 5 Wrath of God, only destroyed her Exemplar, swung A LOT OF DAMAGE, but she was at 18 life... I'd gotten 2 quests online and EOT got 2 Breaching Leviathans and swung 18 next turn!

Round 7, Devils, owls into Leviathans did the trick.

Round 8, Aura-Spirits, a really good match lost game 3.

Yes I definitely agree, swap Breaching Leviathan in for Lorthos, the Tidemaker. It has a converted mana cost of 9 which is relevant for Grozoth.

Whelming Wave for sure my friend...

I have a kraken deck too and it is quite fun. I would nevertheless focus also on other stuff such as instants or spells. Also, with Quest for Ula's Temple you depend highly on luck. I would put in some cards with scry, such as Scylands

Denizen of the Deep probably hurts you more than your opponents. Scourge of Fleets should work way better. Mirror Mockery can do really evil s*** here too! Breaching Leviathan can work quite amazing too! Not sure if he should be in the main board, but he is really worth it.

Pearl Lake Ancient why?! you have only creautre spells anyways! Lorthos, the Tidemaker also makes no sense here.. to use him you ned almost half of all the lands in your deck! not worth it, really. better use the Mirror Mockery with Scourge of Fleets or simply Whelming Wave

Breaching Leviathan wont help since you have to cast it from your hand to get its effect, and Quest for Ula's Temple says that you can PUT a creature onto the battlefield and Putting is not the same as Casting. Also Stormtide Leviathan Would not let him attack.

Thank you for your suggestions!

Inkwell Leviathan was already on my mind and it would work really well with Stormtide Leviathan, but I am not sure what I can substitute it for..

Tromokratis is also great it I might try it out. I actually was thinking too, to replace Breaching Leviathan with it, but finally I thought that the combo with Mirror Mockery was too good: basically it means tapping all other creatures forever!

Also Tromokratis is a must add and can replace Breaching Leviathan.
