Thanks for the comment. It's not often that you can actually get more than one creature out with this deck. Often youre just getting one on 4th or 5th round after playing a successful Plasm Capture, so it doesnt matter. On the odd time i have a Stormtide Leviathan and say a Kederekt Leviathan also, ill just play stormtide after ive played kederekt, bounced the board, and attacked once on the next turn. Not a super synergistic deck, but i wanted a sea monster deck and there wasnt alot of options.

Traveler247 Tbh I dont need LED in the deck, but I have one and it synergises well so Im using it. As for cEDH lists, its used a lot in Doomsday lines and a little bit for infinite mana for Bomberman combos but Dramatic Scepter is really where its at with infinite mana these days.

I used to have the dark depths combo in a deck but found it a bit janky, although I can imagine it would fit well in this deck.

In my combo section I mention the use of Flash with Hulk, that combo however I would not say is janky. Thats one of the fastest combos available in the game, but Ive pretty much cut combos from this deck coz I have so many in other decks already.


  • Dead Man's Chest looks like some great value
  • Equilibrium I like this, I love playing control
  • Hostage Taker testing at the moment but havent drawn it yet, should be good though
  • Kederekt Leviathan awesome with reanimate enchantments, I talked about this in my combo section
  • Infernal Darkness I prefer Contamination especially in a creature heavy deck
  • Mind Harness I like Treachery over this as its basically free to cast with no upkeep costs
  • Finally, I want to avoid infinite turns with this deck because I have so many combos in other decks. Also I think Second Chance is more on flavour for infinite turns in this deck, or just playing a normal extra turn card like Time Warp and sacing then recasting E wit each turn / bouncing it with Deadeye would be better coz Time Sieve is a dead draw by itself

Cards I have been experimenting with so far have been Dead Man's Chest, Alpha Authority, Equilibrium, Energy Field, Hostage Taker, Tortured Existence, Infernal Darkness, Kederekt Leviathan, Dystopia, Mind Harness and Dystopia. Granted I love to play control based decks with lots of enchantments so I am a little biased.

Is the Kederekt Leviathan combo worth considering in here? Maybe I'm overvaluing it because I usually play a Prossh deck and my meta also includes a Selvala brostorm player, but having that combo get established can be really frustrating if it gets pulled off quick enough. It feels like a fantastic "this board state is unacceptable" button.

Kederekt Leviathan is good card for mimeo. Plus its a repeatable, instant speed board clear with Necromancy. Anyway this is a cool deck! +1 from me.

Thanks for the comment and upvote! I love Kederekt Leviathan! It was in my deck when I first built it and it did some work for me. But after the mulligan rule change I was switching up my CMCs and I changed it for Devastation Tide which I have been loving with my vampiric tutor or mystical tutor. The leviathan also was kinda broken with animate dead, and I could tell my playgroup was getting tired of that combo. 2 mana bounce the board every turn if I wanted was kinda dumb. But I instead went with a more fair witness/devastation tide loop which is 8 mana.

I will try to get a update sometime during the summer! The core of the deck is there. The strategy is really what makes the deck! :) also yes, I love the idea of a "too good" portion! I'll do that too!

I also want to to someday do a video deck tech. I had fun auditioning for the Command Zone Fan Game Knights episode, but I didn't have much luck...which I was kinda bummed because I thought I'd have a shoot if they saw all the support and love the deck got on this site.

Thanks again and let me know if you have any other questions!

@Funkydiscogod because hexproof doesn't get around Cyclonic Rift, Devastation Tide, AEtherize, Wash Out, Kederekt Leviathan, etc, etc etc.
i feel like there should be an anti-bounce card accessible to non-blue players. otherwise the only way to be resistant to these effects is to counter them (blue).

here's another try.

Leaden Galoshes
Artifact - Equipment
If Leaden Galoshes would be returned to your hand from the battlefield, instead it remains on the battlefield.
If equipped creature would be returned to your hand from the battlefield, instead equipped creature remains on the battlefield.
Equipped creature has islandwalk and loses flying and cannot gain flying.
