Crush of Tentacles Discussion

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!

Your deck looks good it just looks like it needs some board wipes or massive board bounce spells. Since it's Nekusar it might take a bit for you to kill everyone. Cards like Hour of Devastation,Cyclonic Rift, or Crush of Tentacles would do you some good. It's always good to set gameplan's back a turn or two. I also suggest Kumena's awakening when Rivals of Ixalan comes out. Having an Howling Mine for a few turns that later helps you draw cards only is nice. Since your gonna be drawing a ton of cards, you could probably also use more cards that give you no maximum hand size. Hope this help's and have a great time with EDH!

So this is both a decent start and has a long way to go. While I don't have many specific card cuts to recommend to you, I can point you in a general direction for you to go, as well as a bunch of cards that might help you...

Hopefully some amount of this will help! You're allready at the deck being only $90 so you're pretty close! Good luck!
