Spreading Seas

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant land

When Spreading Seas enters the battlefield, draw a card.

Enchanted land is an Island.

ClockworkSwordfish on Kumena At the Helm

I can't recommend Seahunter enough for any merfolk-centric deck. The ability to put any old fishy directly into play, at instant speed and heedless of its mana cost, is invaluable.

While using Donate to ensure your opponent has an island is certainly... imaginative, there are much better ways to accomplish the same. I'd run Spreading Seas , Sea's Claim , Reef Shaman and Tideshaper Mystic before considering Donate.

You should add Spreading Seas , it makes Master of the Pearl Trident give all creatures evasion.

I recommend adding one or two Spreading Seas or Sea's Claim and possibly a Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca

Hey, sweet list! I noticed you were having some problems with Cavern of Souls . I also run a Mono-Blue tempo variant, and I run 3 Spreading Seas out of the side. It’s also really helpful for not instantly dying to Tron, so there’s that.

Ok, so one might notice that their are now vials and one might miss out on a separate but very powerful key piece to this build: Tidal Warrior . This card unlocks things I never thought possible. Two copy's came in the duel decks that we started with but we both complete over looked the raw utility of this NASTY card. It's a Spreading Seas on legs! With eight chances to shut off your opponents most valuable resource and now a healthy influx of 'vial' based shenanigans this build has bite. We are currently on the hunt for a playset of Mutavault , especially now that it can also be available as delectable blue mana for when you need it!

I can't imagine how much damage would be caused if WOTC reprinted this card.

Have fun out there!

A few more changes:

I should probably cut Bitterblossom in favor of the Nevermore , but gotta at least make a few fairies first

I love this idea!! With the 3x Idyllic Tutor I'd be inclined to go down to 1-2 each of the unlife and solemnity. Especially since you have the Greater Auramancy hard lock to protect the pieces. If you're worried about removal, a copy of Mistveil Plains could get them back into the library to hit with tutor. Cutting some of those could make room for 4x Birds of Paradise to ramp into your stuff a turn earlier, which I would definitely recommend. Avacyn's Pilgrim could help as well, though birds is nice as a later game flying blocker.

Herald of the Pantheon is also nice for enchantment ramp, though doesn't help with the creatures here and you don't need the extra life gain since you have the finks, so probably not a great option.

I think 1-2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could do some work here, especially with a free leyline and the persistent finks adding a lot of white devotion.

If you're adding Journey to Nowhere to have an earlier turn play, I'd say go with 4x Path to Exile instead. I think it's strictly better in this deck, and also gives you turn 1 interaction. It would also help clear the way for picking away with your creatures if you're up against a Stony Silence .

Another option could be to go WU instead, which would let you replace Oblivion Ring with Detention Sphere to hit any permanent, as well as Spreading Seas for an answer to things like Tron. Copy Enchantment is also a nice option in blue. And maybe make room for 4x Serum Visions to dig for the pieces.

If you like the idea of adding blue, you could keep Young Wolf and go bant, but I think you'd definitely want some Birds of Paradise and/or Noble Hierarch for fixing.

Anyways, that's my thoughts. This looks like a super fun idea!

This is a brief response. Modern is decently diverse right now

Right now the format has 4 decks that I prepare for.

  1. Izzet Phoenix - a spell slinger deck

  2. Dredge - Traditional not BridgeVine

  3. Tron - Green Urza Tron

  4. U/W Control/Miracles

Both Dredge and Phoenix, see below.

Basically, you NEED major graveyard hate. The U/W control deck is actually maindecking a Rest in Peace

And you should have a full playset in the board. Or use

Surgical Extraction

Tron, you want

Field of Ruin Ghost Quarter Spreading Seas Ceremonious Rejection

U/W Control - whatever you think you need to get past Jace and Terminus
