Crush of Tentacles Discussion

Loreshadow on Everyone Loves Ice Breakers, V2

Quicken can give you instant even with sorceries. It also draws a card on its own.

I personally like using it with Crush of Tentacles but that isn't an option here unless you side in tour Spreading Seas. Very effective card draw/mana denial followup on your next turn.

Engulf the Shore may also work. I use it with Living Lore but it could work here. The flip occurs at the casting so you can use it at even 4 islands as long as you have three previous counters.

The other option is to add a few 0 cost cards or just a bunch of 1 drop counterspells and just use them on yourself to trigger the flip. You only need an initial target. That includes counterspelling your own counterspells. Also, if you use Stubborn Denial at 3 counters it instantly becomes a Ferocious spell since the cast comes first and the resolving of the now Ferocious spell comes after.

I like the theme a lot - cool & unusual commander, as well.

Have you ever tested with Traveler's Cloak, Rogue's Passage, Whispersilk Cloak, or Trailblazer's Boots to get your voltron critter through?

I wonder if Rhystic Study might also complement Remora here. Maybe Crush of Tentacles and Cyclonic Rift as back-up conditional wipes. Bribery and Vedalken Shackles also seem strong here.

You might also play a Paradox Engine and more rocks to get more value off of your Isochron Scepter.

Aeon Chronicler might be fun, as well as Baral, Chief of Compliance, Chasm Skulker, Thassa, God of the Sea, Curse of Verbosity, Consecrated Sphinx, Customs Depot, Jace's Erasure, and Zephyr Scribe.

Happy playing!

And perhaps Cyclonic Rift, Engulf the Shore, Crush of Tentacles, Whelming Wave, Chaos Warp, and a black removal spell or two (like Vraska's Contempt or Walk the Plank) for good measure.

Engulf the Shore, Crush of Tentacles, and River's Rebuke might offer a few more mass bounce effects.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Progenitor Mimic, and Consecrated Sphinx might all be good utility creatures to test, and Mind's Dilation might be a fun enchantment to try.

Happy brewing!

I would probably take out Wrexial and Sky Swallower, since, from the looks of it, you're mainly relying on Quest for Ula's Temple to cast them. Maybe you can consider Kraken of the Straits, Lorthos, the Tidemaker, and Crush of Tentacles as replacements?

Cool theme!

I wonder if you might drop a few artifacts to add some wipes that bounce creatures. Those would also help you stay alive in the early game as you try to deal with threats in multiplayer. Engulf the Shore, Evacuation, and Crush of Tentacles might be helpful. Maybe an AEtherize and a Cyclonic Rift, as well, or a River's Rebuke?

Boomerang seems like a useful targeted alternative, as well.

Happy playing!

Sweet list and commander!

Have you tested with Crush of Tentacles or Engulf the Shore as back-up rifts?

Carry Away and Commandeer seem like they might also be flavorful cards to test.

Happy playing!
