Pearl Lake Ancient Discussion

Casual is a pretty difficult format to offer feedback for, since the metagame varied widely from table to table. To that end, I am going to try and offer advice that fits with the theme of this deck--the Blue Ocean. So, while it might be fair to say something like Judge's Familiar would be an upgrade to Cursecatcher , it would not work flavorfully, so I will not be making those suggestions.
To start, I do not think you need four copies of Pearl Lake Ancient . Strong as High Tide can be from a ramp stance, you're not going to be able to ramp into casting two Ancients in the same turn as your High Tides. Frankly, I do not think you have enough payoffs to really justify running High Tide , and you might want to focus instead on removal, counters, and card-draw. I would replace all four copies with two copies of the much better Nezahal, Primal Tide .
You are in Casual, which gives you freedom to run whatever counterspells you want. Rather than running Negate and Essence Scatter , both of which are conditional, consider running the classic Counterspell and Mana Leak .
You do not quite have the high enough density of instant/sorcery cards (or fetch lands) to really make it shine, but Treasure Cruise is still an incredibly powerful card, worthy of a slot or two.
Long-Finned Skywhale is pretty mediocre, being a 4/3 for 4 that can't even block all the time. Tempest Djinn would be a good replacement--you can cast it as a 3/4 flier on turn 3, and it only gets bigger from there.
Hope some of this helps!

(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!

I had battlegrace as a budget Baneslayer, but Aetherling I think really is worth dropping a Pearl Lake Ancient for, diversifying threats and all.

Just pointing out that you linked to the wrong deck with the same name.
Azusa, Lost but Seeking is almost a must in land decks. Storm Cauldron is great since you hurt opponents more than yourself, and it actually gives you bonus card draw. Horn of Greed and Nissa, Vital Force also give you card draw when you play lands. Patron of the Moon and Amulet of Vigor can give you infinite landfall with ways to bounce lands like Storm Cauldron, Cloudstone Curio, Simic Growth Chamber, Ghost Town, Meloku the Clouded Mirror, or Pearl Lake Ancient.

Hi mushtard! I really like this deck list you have. I also have a Thassa, God of the Sea deck that looks almost like it! If I were to make some changes, I would take out any underwhelming cards like Thassa's Emissary & Sealock Monster for more impactful spells like Cyclonic Rift, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, & Pearl Lake Ancient. I'm also very unsure about the new Octopus Umbra. It's very flavorful, sure, but in a deck where your creatures are already big and scary it may not be that useful. I'll need to play with that more... If you ever want to take a look at my Thassa, God of the Sea deck and use it as a reference, you're more than welcome to do so anytime!

Displacement Wave, Kefnet the Mindful, Learn from the Past, Snapcaster Mage, Sphinx of the Final Word, Pearl Lake Ancient, River's Rebuke, Scatter to the Winds, Myriad Landscape (thinning) are some options to consider. Buried Ruin and Field of Ruin are good utility, perhaps also Nephalia Academy, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Sea Gate Wreckage and Arcane Lighthouse.
Niblis of Frost good against creature decks.
Looks good, +1

Np for the feedback. I realized that you lack a alternate win con. Say that they Surgical Extraction you Thing in the Ice Flip. You are countering they're stuff, prolonging the game for no reason. I'm thinking something along the lines of -2 Young Pyromancer, +2 Pearl Lake Ancient or another common control win condition.
Congrats on going to Nationals btw.
