Breaching Leviathan Discussion

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on revoking your library card

1 week ago

Nice to see a Stitcher Geralf list! One of my favorite characters in modern-day Magic, to be sure.

There are several ways you can go to improve this list. You can add more fatty creatures for Geralf to abuse, or just to pressure lategame, and you can continue to add to the milling theme.

Lorthos, the Tidemaker is a pretty big creature that essentially makes a "game over" in a 1v1 matchup. You'll also never be sad to mill him into a zombie.

Fatestitcher is an on-flavor card that can be unearthed from your graveyard after you've milled it to untap Geralf and re-use his ability again.

Artisan of Kozilek allows you to reanimate something huge from your graveyard that you haven't had the opportunity to exile away. Pretty gigantic threat on its own, too.

Wonder is an incredible creature to dump into your graveyard, thereby giving all your powerful zombie abominations evasion.

Geralf's Masterpiece is flavorful, but it also allows you to repeatedly recur it by discarding cards. A monstrous attacker in its own right.

Breaching Leviathan shuts down all of your opponents for a full round if you're able to amass the mana to hardcast it. Otherwise, milling a 9/9 will definitely create a huge zombie.

Tromokratis also falls into the category of "giant beefy blue creature that's good to mill into a zombie." Not bad to cast on its own, either.

Deep-Sea Kraken can be cast early on for its suspend cost, and then accelerate out much quicker, since it removes time counters whenever ANY opponent casts a spell.

Forgotten Creation is powerful card advantage that lets you get rid of more useless cards in favor of drawing into better answers.

Inkwell Leviathan is a monster that's extremely hard to get rid of, has meme-levels of power and toughness, and is one of the few blue creatures with trample.

Frost Titan is yet another strong blue finisher that shuts down a single permanent essentially so long as you can get it to keep attacking.

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!
