Engulf the Shore Discussion

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Jalira budget (30$ deck)

4 hours ago

Looks pretty great; I built a Jalira list myself recently, and she's an absolute blast to play. I'd swap out Tromokratis and Lorthos, the Tidemaker since you actually can't flip them with Jalira (she specifies nonlegendary). I suggest including Inkwell Leviathan as a replacement beater and Talrand, Sky Summoner as an additional token generator. If you want other big creature budget ideas Pathrazer of Ulamog, Frost Titan, Stormsurge Kraken, Artisan of Kozilek, and Deep-Sea Kraken are all pretty cheap.

Definitely recommend some board clears to help stabilize yourself into the lategame so you can actually get the big dudes out. Whelming Wave, Engulf the Shore, and Crush of Tentacles are all pretty good in this respect.

There's also some cheap lands that can make tokens for you to sacrifice lategame to make sure you don't run out of gas; Foundry of the Consuls, Spawning Bed, and Cradle of the Accursed.

I'm gonna link my build here in case you ever want to go above $30 as your budget; don't worry, there's nothing crazy expensive in here except for the Blightsteel Colossus I opened in a booster pack back in the day: Jalira Big Dumb Beaters EDH

Love the theme dude, very flavorful +1. Still I would try to utilize your commanders ability to a point that it gives you a big advantage.

For example:

Even though these cards are less flavorful, they give your commander more purpose and it also creates a secondary theme to the deck.

I would also go more with a control set up for this deck but that's a matter of opinion I guess. I would definitely run these:

Last note, proliferate is really good with your commander, you can abuse it easily with the cards I've enlisted above.

Still love your theme and the concept, this is only how I would tweak the deck.

Maybe too much creatures, get solid game enders like Sphinx of the Final Word and play it as your only creature.

All the enchantments are just bad. Diminish and Whisk Away out.

There are ton of options to add:

Condescend Good counterspell

Think Twice Card advantage

Engulf the Shore Goodboard wipe for Mono Blue

Disallow Solid counterspell

Jace, Architect of Thought Overall very good walker

Psychic Barrier Straightly better Essence Scatter

There are so much more that i'm not going to list everything but there are maybe the best budget options.

And to make deck more consistent don't play so much 1 and 2 ofs, just play 4 of all good cards

Thanks Soulus101 and Atroxreaper seems River's Rebuke is the new more expensive Engulf the Shore

It looks like you've found all the playable mill cards in standard right now. Unfortunately, black doesn't have much to offer, so it might not be worth including. It provides some removal options, but since you only really need to slow down your opponent, blue will probably be good enough on its own.

I'm not sure how good counterspells will end up being. Things like Engulf the Shore will probably work better just because counterspells require you to leave mana unused "just in case" but you're going to want to play your mill cards.

If you want the deck legal in standard, Battle for Zendikar and Shadows Over Innistrad will be rotating out once Ixalan comes out. On the bright side, Ixalan features Fleet Swallower and Navigator's Ruin.

Some cards suggestions: Desert of the Mindful, Decision Paralysis, Galestrike, Imaginary Threats, Select for Inspection

Engulf the Shore or Whelming Wave since it has pretty much the same condition, but isn't reliant on lands that this deck often overlooks?

If you're worried about board control, you could also run Engulf the Shore. I know I'm suggesting plenty of standard cards but Engulf has given me a lot of power. If their board is too terrifying, you can send their creatures back. Best case scenario, they even have to discard them!

I think the lack of an alternate win condition is one of your biggest issues. If you don't land a Fraying Sanity, its going to take a long time for you to mill your opponent. Also, you have very little by way of interaction with your opponent so if they kill Minister or Vizier, then what? A guy at my LGS was playing a version of this but he was running 2 or 3 Torrential Gearhulk and had Engulf the Shore in the sideboard. Startled Awake/Persistent Nightmare  Flip was also legit in the deck bc of it's ability to be recurred and recast is pinnacle to what this deck is trying to do. And if you're not running the full playset of Glimmer of Genius you're just doing it wrong lol. I hated getting paired against my LGS fraying sanity deck as my deck doesn't have many good ways to interact with it
