Inkwell Leviathan Discussion

IlGuale on Trash for Treasure Deck

I agree. The main problem of this kind of deck are fast, go wide, strategies and Cataclysmic Gearhulk resolves that. Inkwell Leviathan can also be worth a third slot, since it's immune to almost everything is not a boardwipe. The same can be said of Sphinx of the Steel Wind against decks that utilize Shatterstorm or Creeping Corrosion, but maybe Sharuum the Hegemon provide too much value.

1a. Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Karador, Ghost Chieftain, Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, The Mimeoplasm etc.

1b. Entomb, Buried Alive, Reanimate, Animate Dead, Victimize, Living Death, Necromancy, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Exhume

  1. Ummm, not sure as it would completely depend on the draw, the deck and the colours. I'd say T1 on a perfect draw (Lotus Petal/Mox Diamond + Land + Entomb + Reanimate + Fatty) or T2-3 otherwise. Again, depends greatly on your hand and your deck.

  2. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Massacre Wurm, Rune-Scarred Demon, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Void Winnower, Inkwell Leviathan

Reality Shift perhaps to replace Spin into Myth, holding 5 for a single target removal is rough.

additional Removal Options: Universal Solvent is a play and forget that is awesome late game Scour from Existence answers tons of stuff.

your could use Trophy Mage to find your Quietus Spike

Other utility spells that you could run: Engulf the Shore Inkwell Leviathan Control Magic

Inkwell Leviathan and Aethertide Whale seem just a little out of place lol.

Always a fan of Electrostatic Pummeler +1

LeaPlath on Help me build: UB Reanimator (50€)

There are a lot better options you really should play. If you are doing budget, BR is generally a better option. You've got access to looting effects, and sideboard stuff. If you want to stay UB, here are my suggestions.

So for ways of putting stuff into graveyard. Cephalid Coliseum lets you loot, allowing you to draw into your reanimation and spells and discard the trash. Putrid Imp is a decent enough blocker who lets you discard stuff to reanimate at instant speed. Cabal Therapy can target yourself, but also be used as a way to ensure you can go off. Unmask is a solid option for stripping their hand, and yours.

For ways to reanimate, you have Necromancy, Animate Dead, Exhume, Dance of the Dead Reanimate. You want at least 12 reanimation methods. Death from Life/Death is also OK but if you can just play reanimate.

Spell Pierce is generally gonna be better than Censor. 1 mana protects your combo better, and 2 mana to pay means you can hit their tempo.

For threats, generally you play about 10 reanimator targets. Chancellor of the Annex is generally a staple. Good reanimation target and protects your first reanimation/slows down your opponent. Iona, Shield of Emeria, Tidespout Tyrant, Grave Titan, Sire Of Insanity, Inkwell Leviathan, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur (a less good sire) Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Blazing Archon are also good targets. Reanimator targets need to be big, game winning, hard to remove or shut off an entire line of play like these all do.

If you want to be really really lulzy with Buried Alive you can build a graveyard pile of Oona, Queen of the Fae and Worldgorger Dragon. Use Necromancy or Animate Dead on dragon and you create a loop of exiling everything, and returning it to play. This includes the animate dead, so the dragon dies, dead comes back and targets dragon, and you can use this combo to generate infinite mana, then finally have the animate dead come back with Oona, and use the infinite mana to deck someone.

For your sideboard, you've got Chain of Vapor for hitting graveyard hate stuff. Then I would pack your sideboard with stuff to protect your combo more, like Dispel

Inkwell Leviathan is pretty cool, but i think i'll have to go with Stormtide Leviathan. It still bugs me how i pulled two of these from coreset boosters and traded them away because they weren't shrouded and this way wouldn't be perfect for my old Polymorph deck. Heck, i want these cards back.

By the way, did anyone notice that The Gitrog Monster kind of made Jokulmorder playable?
