Quicksilver Amulet Discussion
1 week ago
I dunno, that Loyal Drake doesn't look much like a starfish or crab...
It may seem innocuous but Sand Squid has always overperformed in my seamonster decks. Coral Capers -- (Budget Seamonsters) was the original with Thassa (which you've seen) but I morphed the deck into Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle (Tidal Trouble).
I had AEtherplasm in my mono-blue deck and it was quite good. Looks a bit like a jellyfish so that's a plus.
I always ran into issues where I would finally have enough ramp or Quicksilver Amulet out to do stuff but because I was open all through the early game I wouldn't have the life to realize my kraken dreams. Fog Bank , Guard Gomazoa , Gomazoa , Spiny Starfish , Wall of Kelp , and Wall of Frost are all good and on-theme, as well as helpful for Thassa's devotion.

Hey multimedia, For a budget deck, your deck is great. The Ur-Dragon is my first and most favorite deck have, I played it since I bought the prebuild deck and now up to this day. I put a lot of money, time and care in this deck The dragUr and this what I can suggest you (ill keep it budget) :
Add more haste card. since dragon are big scary creature, they get targeted more often, so I think they must be use as soon they hit the table.
The mana base it's biggest issue for a budget deck 5 color and fixing it cost thousands. So ramp and cheating dragon is essential.
for ramp :
for cheating dragon :
Hope it help you.

Looks like a good start. I feel like black is not adding a lot right now. Mabey adding a few more black good cards can improve this. Good black cards that I would recommend are
One thing I think you need is a way/ways to cheat out your angels. Right now, your CMC for creature is almost six, which is massive. Thing like
can allow you to play these huge threats earlier.
In addition, some of the best ways to ramp is land ramp, which you have very little. Cards like
Knight of the White Orchid
can help you get more lands into the battle and increase consistency.
Overall, looks like a great start; I enjoy building tribal deck and have an angle tribe deck with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight as the commander. Angles are a strong tribe, and black add many powerful cards to the mix.

Consider running Quicksilver Amulet and/or Moonveil Dragon . The amulet is just a great addition to any deck focused around expensive creature spells and moonveil's ability to buff all your creatures can be devastating. Otherwise this deck is awesome, love the idea too!

The problem with it is that unless you build your deck to work with it, there are just better cards that you could be running.
Most reanimator decks (who could abuse it the most) would rather just pitch creatures in the graveyard and reanimate them for cheaper.
And most competitive end decks (where the fetches are much more common) don't really want to spend 4 mana to play a spell which might let them play one of their many < 4CMC spells for free. Especially since the majority of higher end decks rely less on bombs than they do value cards. And for more expensive spells, you would rather just prefer a piece of ramp instead.
Then on the opposite end of the spectrum, the slower and more casual decks who could benefit from the effect would generally take a lot longer to get 6 counters on it and would just prefer something like Elvish Piper or Quicksilver Amulet .
I think the issue with the card is that it doesn't do anything specific, which means it's generally worse than cards which just do one focused thing well.

Thank you for the suggestion! Defense of the Heart is definitely a nice card. Didn't know there was a printing with the modern frame! I'll do some testing.
Though lately I've been thinking of removing cards that need survive for a turn to be useful like Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet since they draw a lot of hate. Piper in particular pretty much always dies before I could do anything with her. I was thinking something like See the Unwritten , Tooth and Nail , or Summoning Trap as replacements.

Coming from a more competitive play style the curve on this hurts my soul; not that it's a bad thing. First, off I'd suggest putting in somethings like Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper cheating in some of the big bois is effective. Additionally. I'd add in some lil guys like Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves and all the other mana dorks along with Priest of Titania . Lastly, your interaction could be a bit better with things like Counterspell and Nature's Claim
