Colossal Whale Discussion

Great Whale would be a nice way to get multiple big fishies out. And since you have hearld of the secret streams you could add Deepglow Skate . Colossal Whale and jin-gitaxias might be worth looking into, and if you want to stray a bit my heart of the card is Lighthouse Chronologist . And to pump things up an extra notch perhaps a Momir Vig, Simic Visionary ??

The Monkulous

Legendary Creature - Homunculus Monk

Prowess, vigilance, trample, first strike

Some wanted to prove that perfection could be engineered into a body. Others claimed that perfection came from intensive practice and mental exercise.

We asked: why not both?

2 / 2

Create a whale that has a gimmick (like, add green for simic, to make it an experiment, or add black for dimir to make it a thing of nightmares, or something), but it still does whaley things. We have so few whales in MTG and I feel like they don't really do whaley things (except for Colossal Whale , which obviously swallows stuff).

Did you guys know there are only six Whales in the whole game, and literally HALF of them have or can gain flying??

Living Island

Legendary Creature

Whales you control have Vigilance.

Whenever Living Island or another Whale you control attacks, you may return a number of permanents to their owner's hands equal to the number of Whales you are attacking with.

You have no maximum handsize.


More unlikely tribal!!

Quest for Ula's Temple might be a card to consider. As you need a lot of mana, how about Zendikar Resurgent ?

Also, although it's a little off typewise: Colossal Whale maybe?

This is a very cool list nonetheless, so take my +1.

A colourshifted enchantment it is.

Price of Ambition 1BB


At the beginning of each player's end step, that player draws a card. If that player isn't you, they lose 1 life if they have for or more cards in hand

"You desire greatness. But greatness never comes without a price."

- Sobik, Oracle of Bontu

Give us a legendary version of Colossal Whale , but give it its own twist to make it worthy of the legendary status.

I'd cut: Colossal Whale, Geode Golem, Inkwell Leviathan (I think this card is pretty mediocre at this point), Shipbreaker Kraken (you can't use Saheeli's cost reduction on the ability, so that's not gonna be active a lot of games and even if you do, it isn't great.) Vedalken Humiliator (This doesn't seem like it does a lot in your deck.) Void Snare (this would be the weakest card run in any deck in the entire playgroup by a decent margin.)

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor - I am amused by this as well. I understand why they did it from a gameplay perspective. They’d have to invent an entirely new creature subtype with limited future use. From a developer perspective, it’s better to add to an existing tribe.

But if we apply this biological logic to other creatures, Colossal Whale should be subtyped Antelope.
