Inkwell Leviathan Discussion
1 day 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.
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

Hello, welcome to EDH!
Firstly, 27 lands is not enough, especially in a three color deck. I would aim for 35-37 in this deck since you have 6 mana rocks.
If you are up for ordering cards, Command Tower should go in any commander deck with more than one color.
You are going to want Swiftfoot Boots to protect your commander and give it haste.
There are 2 different ways you can go about building the deck.
Either way is valid and enjoyable, it just depends on who you play with and how you like to play.
For either one though, you need more big creatures for Mimeoplasm's second targer for counters. Some good cheap options are Krosan Cloudscraper and Ghoultree. Inkwell Leviathan and Gaea's Revenge can be used as targets for the first or second ability.
Terastodon can be used as removal and then as counters later in the Mime.
Firstly, Gifts Ungiven is banned in commander. If you are playing casually it shouldn't be too big a deal, but I thought I'd let you know.
Metallic Rebuke is not very good here because the only non-creature artifacts you have produce mana, so you can't really use the improvise that often.
I don't know if you are going for a recursion theme, but generally in this deck you want your creatures to stay in the graveyard, so Wander in Death, Fortuitous Find, and March of the Drowned don't seem very good in this deck. A little bit of recursion is good in any deck, but this is too much.

I love these decks. I did a bit of playtesting, and I have to say, they seem fairly evenly matched. (And nothing gives me more pleasure than bashing in with a 27/16 Metalwork Colossus with flying, first strike, and trample)
I love the decks, and their price! I might pick them up in paper.

Haha. If you're still looking for targets not susceptible to removal try the above cards (can draw off grisel in response, Iona shuts off a card color) or maybe Inkwell Leviathan or Simic Sky Swallower perhaps. Grave Titan is a nice spread out threat too.

You may also like to run Inkwell Leviathan, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, or Wurmcoil Engine. Obviously none of them just win, but they are all hard to remove threats are almost unstoppable. Right now your opponent can simply Ancient Grudge and be fine.
Still cool deck.

I'm brewing a seamonster themed build w her, thought I'd lend my 2c and ask some questions since from your update I surmise you've built and played this.
I don't see a whole lot to provide tokens to sack to Jalira. I count Trading Post, Flayer Husk, Monkey Cage, Thopter Assembly, Reef Worm, and Wurmcoil Engine. Is that really enough? I filled mine with lots of subpar sorceries/instants (aka Tidal Wave) to ensure I only hit a CMC 7+.
I'm looking for an atypical mono-blue commander to try, so overall, how do you like play-style of this type of deck?
