Hello friends,

(Disclaimer: My first post, so let me know if I need to make edits.)

Could anyone provide some feedback on my two decks? I’m getting back into this after 15 years. Yay. For now this is just for casual play. I don’t mind spending a few dollars, just not many dollars. Thanks for stopping by and for any and all help!

Octopus Umbra, Lorthos, the Tidemaker and Sealock Monster for flavor and some brute force.

2/ Gyrus, Waker of Corpses reanimator?

3/ Good idea.

4/ wait till GRN is fully spoiled.

5/ Mayel and ultra cutthroat does not seem right.

All hail Lorthos, the Tidemaker! And his brother Tromokratis. But even Lorthos and Tromokratis bow down to Braids, Conjurer Adept.

FluffyStormwise - Thanks! I was highly considering Lorthos, the Tidemaker over Inkwell Leviathan, but ended up choosing Inkwell Leviathan because it had shroud. I was also considering Nezahal, Primal Tide, but again I chose shroud. I'll definitely be testing out different wincons, to see if I chose correctly. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi, love the control budget! I would suggest Lorthos, the Tidemaker as an option with inkwell. As you will be able to perma tap their mana.

I would probably take out Wrexial and Sky Swallower, since, from the looks of it, you're mainly relying on Quest for Ula's Temple to cast them. Maybe you can consider Kraken of the Straits, Lorthos, the Tidemaker, and Crush of Tentacles as replacements?

So this is both a decent start and has a long way to go. While I don't have many specific card cuts to recommend to you, I can point you in a general direction for you to go, as well as a bunch of cards that might help you...

Hopefully some amount of this will help! You're allready at the deck being only $90 so you're pretty close! Good luck!
