Spreading Seas Discussion

If you're running 3x Sea's Claim and 4x Spreading Seas, land control is a part of your deck. You could easily run 4x of some combination of Ghost Quarter and Tectonic Edge and have better match-ups against decks that do poorly against land control. You won't sacrifice anything really, since your deck is mono-colored.

Thank you so much calvinwarning! Your advice has been invaluable towards the development of this deck!

I've gotten the final 3 Aether Vials and have added them, but now I need to figure out what to cut.

I did some research and I'm considering having the deck be closer to an '8seas' variant, as the local meta seems to have a lot of 3-color and/or low land decks running around. I still think I'll leave 2x Sea's Claim on the side, though. Or would it make sense to go all in? Moving to this variant would probably result in the removal of my Spell Pierces, which don't care about what color is being paid. Vapor Snag seems fairly strong in this build as well, as it could allow me to bounce a creature and then get rid of the lands required to cast it. As far as I can tell, the only prominent deck in the local meta that doesn't care about Spreading Seas is a few other Merfolk decks running around, in which case Spell Pierce wouldn't be too effective anyways. If I do go with this build, I'd probably do the following:

  • -2 Spell Pierce (main)
  • -1 Harbinger of the Tides (main)
  • -1 Spell Pierce (side)
  • +1 Dismember (side)
  • Alternatively, I could go with the standard Merfolk build, trading life for more permanent removal and saving some extra land disruption in the sideboard.

  • -2 Sea's Claim (main)
  • -2 Vapor Snag (main)
  • +1 Dismember (main)
  • -1 Tidebinder Mage (side)
  • -2 Vapor Snag (side)
  • +1 Sea's Claim (side)
  • +2 Dismember (side)
  • What do you (and anyone else who happens to look at this) think? I have a game night coming up tomorrow, so I'm going to try and pick one and see how it goes.

    Hey there! Sorry for my late response. I would say so, yes.

    Even though the deck is in a top tier 4 category I have had success in the past against tier 1 and 2 decks. The one thing I would say study your local metagame, every place is different so you would have to tweak your side board to combat your locals. Like for example use Spreading Seas against big mana decks.

    Here are a couple of links to help you along your Mono-Blue Tron Journey. Even though the primer is a bit outdated it is still a great resource. Also look up r/TronMTG subreddit, that is another great source for EVERYTHING Tron related.

    Last but not least look up pierakor on YouTube, he has a TON of videos of his Mono-Blue Tron against pretty much every deck you can think of. This man is the U-Tron Guru. He also has a Twitch stream under the same name. But I'm not sure if he currently streams at the moment because I know he had a problem but I think it might be fixed now. Also, pierakor frequently responds on the r/TronMTG subreddit as well.

    Here's a link to his deck, he updates this list as he goes.

    If you have any other questions or comments let me know and I'll get back to you ASAP.

    TL;DR: It can be, yes.

    Edit: I have no idea how to do the links. I looked it up I did it like it said and they didn't work. Just copy and paste. XD

    So I have a Kira, the Great Glass-Spinner, a Hallowed Fountain, a Spreading Seas, a couple Phantasmal Image, and a remand. Any chance you'll do your Arid Mesa and Fatal Push for them?

    @jonmaior - Fragmentize is to kill every single graveyard hate card out there, Spreading Seas is for Tron decks. Also considering how much I use the graveyard, I need high amounts of the cards so I have a better chance of drawing them, because once I hit 4 lands, I stop drawing cards from my deck.

    The deck does play more like a combo deck however, so the more interaction I add, the less likely the deck is to do anything. Playing cards like Remand and Logic Knot doesn't do anything for my gameplan. I do think all of those cards would be good in some kind of esper build, but I feel like they aren't synergistic with what I'm doing.

    Sea's Claim and Spreading Seas could make good sideboard cards against black, which doesn't really care about having its lands turned to swamps. Corrupted Roots could be sideboarded as additional land enchants, or cheaper land enchants against certain decks.

    You could also just consider a handful of swampwalkers, they would also counter black, and could even be used alongside Evil Presence or Contaminated Ground. Quag Vampires are nice.

    Path to Exile is always good. Remand, Fatal Push, Logic Knot. Maybe evenOjutai's Command or Spell Queller. I love the deck idea though. Iv'e never seen esper dredge before and this deck is one of the most beautiful decks I've seen in a while. some of you're sideboard cards seem unnecessary so I might take out some of the Fragmentize, Spreading Seas and Darkblast and add some better control.

    Hey nice suggestion! I was just going to add copies of Mystic Compass to get the effect for islandwalk and for the ships but I like Spreading Seas much better. Will definitely be using it.
