Kederekt Leviathan Discussion

Kederekt Leviathan could be considered another win-con with how well it locks up the board. At worst it's a slightly worse Cyclonic Rift with a body and Unearth. At best it's a repeatable 3 mana instant speed boardwipe Kederekt Leviathan + Necromancy .
I've tried Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. My main problem with it is it would usually punish one or two players to my left, and then die. I tend to prefer symmetrical effects as they make less enemies. Entomb is a recent addition so I may try Jin-Gitaxias again though.
Hermit Druid combo has always been one of my considerations, but it'd require a pretty big (expensive) deck overhaul. I can envision a version of this deck focused on disgusting Protean Hulk and Phyrexian Delver combos, but that's really not this version. I just want to hold 50 cards and feel like a Timmy right now.

I haven't considered Kederekt Leviathan for this deck before, but now that I see it I think I want to try it out. Not always an effect I'd want to happen, but I like the toolbox element (e.g. if my board state was weak and I needed to buy some time - it's almost like a less good Cyclonic Rift).
Mesmeric Orb is great, I think I dismissed it due to the sheer number of mill cards I'm already running + I don't necessarily want to self mill (I know, weird for a Mimeoplasm deck, heh).
I'm currently in the process of making custom categories for my decks so that I can quickly see the basic 'needs' (ramp, removal, tutor etc.) and I can see that there's a real lack of card draw going on in this deck. Rhystic Study is awesome and is always a welcome value card to any deck running , but if I can only squeeze 1 replacement to add more draw I'm leaning toward this Champion of Wits - I haven't seen this guy before! Definitely an interesting option and like you say, a great Mimeo fit.
Thanks for the ideas, VETJasper, you've got me thinking here.

I also really like Mesmeric Orb, but I run it mostly for the self mill so I'm not sure if it's perfect for your deck.
I feel like Rhystic Study is obvious, but you've probably already dismissed it if you're not running it by now.
I haven't bought a Champion of Wits yet, but it looks like it's made for Mimeoplasm.

In regards to blockers I'll make the same suggestion I made on Dan's list Kederekt Leviathan. It clears blockers and can be used to slow down opponents. It also combos nicely with any of the Animate Dead effects. It is expensive to unearth if you don't have a reanimation spell, but I think it could make a good fit. If you're looking to clear the way at least. If the plan is go all in and pray, then no need.

Requires a total of for the double Animate () and the it takes to kickstart the combo but it guarantees a win due to no blockers by just adding .

What do you think of playing Kederekt Leviathan. I play it in my Inalla list since any of the Animate Dead variants allow you to bounce the board repeatedly for 2 or 3 mana. I've been using it mostly as a Buried Alive target along with Wanderwine Prophets to clear blockers before comboing, but it can also just slow down other decks until you can get your combo online by bouncing their boards repeatedly. A little janky I admit, but it's been effective for me.

I'm surprised by how many slow lands you're running. With the exceptions of Spinerock Knoll, and your 2 wilds, I'm not sure these are worth running. There are more expensive lands you could be running in these slots, but I don't think that lands that enter tapped are generally worth it considering you're running pretty even colors. I think you probably also have too much Jhoira protection. Because you can suspend at instant speed and generally only need 1 or 2 bombs, you won't always need these cards anyway and certainly wont want to have two of them at once. If it were me, I'd cut down to just Alexi's Cloak and Swiftfoot Boots. In those 3 open spots I'd add Kederekt Leviathan, Blasphemous Act, and some card advantage like Treasure Cruise. Cool deck though! +1

I'm not sure you need that many counterspells. They're not going to stop people from benefitting from Braids once she's out. I think you'd do better by introducing more bounce spells/abilities (like the one that Kederekt Leviathan has) or more ways to steal other people's stuff (the inclusion of Roil Elemental is a good start.
In case you need more ideas on this, feel free to check out my Braids deck. Happy gaming!
