Deep-Sea Kraken

Creature — Kraken

Deep-Sea Kraken can't be blocked.

Suspend 9— (Rather than cast this card from your hand, you may pay and exile it with nine time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost. It has haste.)

Whenever an opponent casts a spell, if Deep-Sea Kraken is suspended, remove a time counter from it.

Deep-Sea Kraken is great as it will cast and dome some one for 10; it may even come out and do it on an opponents turn for free.

Gratuitous Violence is another fun card to help close out the game.

Rewind I find as a great counterspell in this deck as I always want to cast spells on my opponents turns and this helps that out especially if you have lands that tap for more then one mana.

I may have accidentally mistaken Diabolic Tutor for Diabolic Intent. My bad. Ignore that part.

But, I do like Deep-Sea Kraken. In know the 3 blue can be a little rough, but payout could be huge.

I love this deck!!! You are such a jerk, in a beautiful way. Two thumbs, waaay up!

At first glance...

Maybe swap out Sisay's Ring for a Chromatic Lantern (just seems like a good swap for the mana fixing)

I’m not a big fan of Diabolic Tutor, in this deck. It seems like the theme is not just land destruction, but also doing something after the board control = not enough creatures to waste. Having said that, maybe swap it for something like a Deep-Sea Kraken. It is a big force, one you control the board.

I actually play this pair. They work well together. Here is a few cards that have served me well and I think they will do the same for you Twilight Prophet, Connive / Concoct, Shriekmaw, Mulldrifter, Deep-Sea Kraken, Bloodsworn Steward, Whip of Erebos, Breaking / Entering, Rise / Fall, Torrential Gearhulk, Stunt Double, Ancient Stone Idol, and Price of Fame.

Oh and important ruling you should know about Split cards. While they're on the stack, only the half you're casting is counted for CMC. However, when they're anywhere else and you need to figure out what the CMC is, you go by the total between both halves.

This matters for cards like Twilight Prophet and Combustible Gearhulk which I also suggest you run.

I feel like it is a missed opportunity not to use a Partner if you got the option. Having access to a larger card pool will give you an edge and as long as it is only a splash you won't even need to mix up your mana base much. Heck you could even just run the second commander without splashing any other cards because you have lands and artifacts in your deck that can make mana of any color. You only need to make one off color mana to play the secondary commander.

Here is my build Vial Smasher & Kraum EDH if you want to check it out. Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is great because he is just generally a strong card without needing synergy and having access to blue is huge. You get cards like Deep-Sea Kraken, Dig Through Time, and Treasure Cruise.

Another option would be Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper because a big body with life gain is nice and green gives you more ramp options and big beefy creatures. Akiri, Line-Slinger is also nice if you want to be more aggressive. Though white doesn't add much to the game plan and you don't run a lot of artifacts right now.

Soul Foundry, Stolen Identity, Supplant Form, Rite of the Raging Storm, maybe Shapesharer.

Deep-Sea Kraken is cheap with suspend then you can get a 6/6 unblockable.

Blighted Agent if you don't mind Infect.

How do you not have The Locust God here already?

Looks like a fun deck. I would be tempted to even go almost creatureless except for clones. Then when you hit them with powerful creatures ITS - ALL - THEIR - FAULT.

Telepathy and Deep-Sea Kraken I do not see helping the deck have a better chance to win the game. Telepathy is sure to slow down a game and bring you some strong table hate in my opinion.

Laboratory Maniac as another win con with Frenetic Efreet

Fabricate , Muddle the Mixture or to go find your Thumb?

Fling , Warp World and Disrupt Decorum I would think would be a better fit than Telepathy and Deep-Sea Kraken. They keep up the Chaos theme.

Orcish Captain . Thieves' Auction are filler options as well.

Rootwater Diver , Argivian Restoration, Reconstruction , Junk Diver to return Krark's Thumb. Recoup for sorcery Body Double and remove about 7 lands.
