Also, I'm really focused on working on the Blue Deck for now. I would like a very competitive Standard Blue Deck, which has solid removal, good creatures, and a nice pace.
I love the Stormtide Leviathan , I like that it can be a win-con, or at least I see it as one, as it is difficult to remove, and with enough counter, I can keep it around long enough to decimate.
Any thoughts on upgrading or working with this?
I've been doing some thinking and Herald of Torment was towards the top of the list of things I think would help this deck out. I have been thinking of adding Ajani's Pridemate and Ajani's Chosen as well. I don't know if Ajani's Chosen would be worth my time at 4 cmc, but I think it'd be alright since I'll more than likely drop an enchantment every turn. I think the pridmate will add some bulk to my weenie fort because I'll have so many lifegain triggers. Of course depending on what I take out I'd be losing some of the effectiveness. People have been hating on the Skybind which used to be a 2 of on the main. I have considered my games and feel like there are times that I feel like I could really use it, but in games that I'm losing and needing to get back into, I feel like it's always disappointing to see unless there's a Gray Merchant of Asphodel in my hand too. I think what I'll do is put in some removal instead for a bit more consistency, but I'm definitely moving it to the sideboard, because it just does so much work against control-y decks that just stall games out. So here's what I'm thinking...
Thoughts? I feel like this just needs to happen as much as I hate boarding my baby girl Skybind
I personally would go with: -1 Soul of Innistrad , -2 Soul of Shandalar , -2 Lava Axe , -1 Xathrid Slyblade , -2 Eternal Thirst , +2 Typhoid Rats , +3 Lightning Strike , +1 Stab Wound , +2 Generator Servant then playtest to see where it goes from there
Stab Wound has won me a bunch of games with deck strategies like this.
Not sure why Master of the Feast is in here. Dictate of Kruphix does its job and helps you, so there's really no reason to use it. If you're going the control route, be sure to instead use Nyx-Fleece Ram . It's both a good defender and a great way to sustain yourself. Also, you have very little board control for a control deck. While we are cycling out of a metagame dominated by Sphinx's Revelation and Supreme Verdict into a very aggro-focused metagame, I'd recommend the ability to clean out the board. Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Whelming Wave . I'm also not sure why Stab Wound is in here...there isn't much for it to hit.Oh yeah, and I'd recommend sideboarding Deicide , if just to hurt greedy god decks.Beyond that, seems decent, but maybe not control-y enough.
