You're absolutely right Optimator! I've been struggling about whether I should cut Quest for Ula's Temple or keep it in for the flavour and potential reward, but it has been underwhelming in every game played so I might as well get rid of it instead.

I'm quite happy with the Ramp package I've got so far as well, and I'm not really struggling with casting any of my big sea-monsters.

As for Quicksilver Amulet , as mentioned above, I've never really struggled with casting my big guys. 9/10 times I will cast my commander on turn 4 and then I'll be able to pretty much cast any creature I'd like.

I think I'll add in a nice finisher instead, such as Overwhelming Stampede to close out some games faster.

Thank you very much for your tip and suggestions!

Quest for Ula's Temple is a total trap. I had one in my Thassa-led seamonster deck for a long time--I speak from experience. It only gets counters on ~27% of flipped cards, it doesn't put every type of bomb in your hand into play, and is somewhat removable if it's perceived as a threat by anyone. It's way better in 60-card decks where the proportional creature count is higher and getting a 7-drop out early actually matters.

I would highly recommend replacing it with something like Quicksilver Amulet , Farseek , Gilded Lotus , or even Simic Signet . Your ramp package seems quite good as-is so it could open up a utility slot for you.

So, it basically turns every card into a Deep-Sea Kraken ?

What about more of a Quest for Ula's Temple type ability?

I suggest using Quest for Ula's Temple . Since you use all the Big Water monsters.

Revolves around seems pretty subjective. I'm more used to esper colors so I can't speak for what might be in red that would be interesting.

Paradox Haze would be an obvious choice. Then being able to copy that effect with Estrid's Invocation and Copy Enchantment would be obvious. Since the deck must incorporate an upkeep-based theme, Mind Unbound , As Foretold . Quest cards like Quest for Ula's Temple end up being resolved pretty quickly too.

As AnchroCity said, Krark's Thumb synergizes with the coinflip at upkeep. This could lead to potentially 3 wins per upkeep in terms of coinflips. In that case Chance Encounter might be pretty neat as a wincon.

Cards like decent into madness ends up having a factorial effect with the multiple upkeeps (1 counter, then 2, then 3, then 4 means 1+2+3+4 = 10 cards exiled on the first turn after its played) if I'm understanding the wording correctly.

This does kill cards with cumulative upkeep costs that aren't in fact benefits like the 3 you've chosen. Thats all I'm willing to think about it for now but it seems like it could be pretty neat.

Quest for Ula's Temple might be a card to consider. As you need a lot of mana, how about Zendikar Resurgent ?

Also, although it's a little off typewise: Colossal Whale maybe?

This is a very cool list nonetheless, so take my +1.
