Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep Discussion

I would say your weakest cards currently are:

Master of the Waves - For being a 4 drop, it is one of the weaker ones that doesn't promote your game plan or give synergy.

River Sneak - Beasically a vanilla creature, would replace with a one drop cmc creature.

Sage of Fables - Just a bit too slow, aand not much synergy aside from the +1/+1 Counter card draw which is a tad too slow.

Shapers of Nature - Same as Fables, but even slower. I would cut this card first over Sage of Fables.

Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep - Too high cost for a asymmetrical bounce. I rather run a tutor (Mystical Tutor) to find Cyclonic Rift over him, or even more protection.

Vorel of the Hull Clade - Doesn't fit with synergy, and costs every time. If it targeted every single one of your creatures than yes, but since it's a single target...no.

Another suggestion will also be for the type of ramp spells. Going on curve I rather use the two drops like Nature's Lore, Farseek, Rampant Growth. But I do like Kodama's Reach and Cultivate. Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage is also a bit too slow, if you have the chance or budget I would recommend Rhystic Study.

Hope that helps!

Hi! Looks like a sweet start to a Merfolk deck (a deck I've wanted to build myself for quite a while)! Here are some recommendations:

Additions:

Cuts:

  • Treetop Village and Lumbering Falls; manlands are so much worse in Commander than in 60-card formats
  • Remote Isle; blue and green have better ways to draw cards than cycling away your lands
  • Vivid Creek and Vivid Grove; green has much better mana fixing
  • Bioshift doesn't really do anything
  • Tideshaper Mystic is the same; cutting one opponent off of mana doesn't do much, and 1/1s for 1 that die to board wipes are mediocre at best.
  • World Shaper isn't really where you want to be; you don't have a ton of graveyard synergies
  • River's Rebuke isn't my favorite board wipe in Commander, even in blue/green. I'd play Devastation Tide instead.
  • Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep just does too little for 10 mana. If you're spending 10 mana on a single card, that card should be winning you the game.
  • Talrand, Sky Summoner, as you don't have a ton of spell synergies
  • True-Name Nemesis is good, but mainly in Legacy. In Commander, a 3/1 that just one player can't interact with is bad.
  • Shapers of Nature is a decent mana sink, but I think you'd rather just be doing something else with your mana.

Hope this helps! If you'd like me to explain some of my choices more, or if you want help on another deck, feel free to leave a comment on my profile, and I'll take a look as soon as I can!

cut Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep, Greater Good, Pemmin's Aura, Edge of Autumn, Gitaxian Probe, and Crush of Tentacles first off. You need to round out your curve. It's really out of wack.

You are conflicting with your ideas here and it will bite you later. You have really high CMC creatures with a lot that don't do much on cast and are more build around cards, but then you are sending everything back to the hand with a ton of board wiped, but if you have a bunch of high CMC, non-ETB value creatures how are you supposed to cast a board wipe like that effectively? Either run high cmc cards or play the boardwipes with combo not both. You also have a lot of very power, expensive cards like snapcaster and crucible, but the reason those cards are good is because of the other powerful cards that you can abuse with them, but in this case you are running cards that don't abuse them. I don't understand why you wouldn't go for more staples found on EDHREC, and cut the very expensive cards you clearly don't want to take advantage of right now.

You also have no central theme. You say landfall power-matters, but you've cut all of the landfall out, so we're left with another jumble of cards that don't always work well with each other. What about Voltron? Your goal seems to be either the possibility of an OTK with your deck, or control. If you want to go for the control route, please lower your average CMC after you fix your curve. You do not want to cast 4cmc cards to give you a slight upside. Look at the cards in EDHREC for control decks and play those cards that are staples. More counterspell, more draw, and for all things that are holy please play better ramp. You need more artifacts and your current spells are crappy sorceries. Don't go for giant high-cmc spells that payoff only after you've played 6 lands. Go for consistency and at bare-minimum success.

I do like the voltron theme better though, like a sort of wait around deck that throws down equipment in one turn, and then turns on Arix to smash for lethal.

Legendary Creature - Elder Leviathan

Flying, trample

Shroud

Whenever ~ attacks, you may pay . If you do, create X 1/1 blue and green Snake creature tokens with flying.

7/6

I was going to just make an older version of a preexisting leviathan legend, but the only one is Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep, so that went nowhere.

Demonlord Belzenlok is the only Elder Demon. Could we get a Dominarian Elder Angel, Sphinx, or Wurm/Hydra?
