Stormtide Leviathan Discussion

Fun deck. I'd give Stormtide Leviathan a look though. Arguably the best cheap blue fatty from the sea. Also if looking to spend a bit more, you could roll the queen of the seas herself in Thassa, God of the Sea. Other notable blue fattys include Breaching Leviathan, Aethersquall Ancient, Deep-Sea Kraken, Stormsurge Kraken, and Serpent of the Endless Sea. I'd give some of these a look if you are looking for a bit more hitting power on the cheap as all of them are less that a dollar bit hit super hard. Stormsurge Kraken in particular is great for it's card draw ability and hexproof.

I know! Why does no one play Dissipation Field?! That's ok. I'll just play all of them. My opponents can have none! XD but the only issue I see with Illusionist's Gambit is it seems a little too specific. HOWEVER, I'll take some advice from a fellow mono-blue grouphug player, and put it on my list of things to try. If I were to put it in, what should I take out?

All heil Stormtide Leviathan!!

I just realized I accidently blocked you...which is weird 'cause I actually tried to subscribe to you. But now that I removed the blocked, I finally encountered you linked me here. It's interesting that it happened to you like this, as it actually also happened to me, though my version indeed ended up UG:

I like your approach, it's pretty brutal and control-heavy. The problem I see is that Stormtide Leviathan actually hinders most of your creatures from attacking. You definitely get a +1 nonetheless.

@Snydog17 I know Zurgo isn't the best commander for anything that isn't a Voltron deck, but i like him just because i like him. you know, he's a pet card (although i'm pretty sure that the first Zurgo wouldn't like to be called a pet).

What you guys think about Braids, Cabal Minion and Braids, Conjurer Adept? i know that the black one is banned but they seem to be soo cool together. I can sacrifice an Island to put, idk, a Stormtide Leviathan in play? nice. and your friends also get to do the same, so it would be pretty fun.

-Creatures & QTY_

  • Take Stormtide Leviathan down to one (1), give yourself more options.

  • Add Hedron Crab, to start removing odds of cards for your opponent and limiting their options for how to deal with this deck.

  • Take Silver Myr down to two (2).

  • Look up search for target cards so if in the starting hand doesn't have what you need then when you get this "search for card", you can then get your rythem going and start your WC.

  • Add some more control to buy yourself time for the big creatures.


  1. Do not count on Silver Myr to supplement your mana supply because you may or may not ever get one out.
  2. Your land needs to be 24-26 cards. Your land will be imbalanced and you will find it lacking and run into an extreme opposite of v1 of this deck which would be worse than having too much. Imagine having all the cards you need but nothing to play them with.
  3. I am not sure why Khalni Garden, is within this deck. Khalni Garden makes the lands feel unfocused.

Now that the deck has had some play testing this is the next step in it's configuration. Storm has been removed as it wasn't very dependable in my meta. The combo's are too fragile. The board wipes were great, but there were just too many and I found myself holding more than one at any given time. The most consistent win condition was putting out big creatures fast using suspend so I intend to capitalize on that effect. To keep the creatures coming I added card draw to refill my hand. The new "Maybe Board" shows cards that I intend to put in the deck before further play testing and it should take the deck from a 50-50 win ratio to something much more competitive. It's already fast as hell and has dropped Kozilek, the Great Distortion on turn 5 followed by a Bearer of the Heavens and Stormtide Leviathan on turn 6 together. And since they come out of Suspend with Haste they can attack right away. That sort of pressure is pretty consistent and can be hard for others to keep up with. Not impossible by any means, but in the price range that the deck was in during testing of roughly $100 that's pretty impressive.

puetypoo I used to have Evil Presence, etc. in the deck, but turned them over in favor of effects that change all the lands on board (e.g. Blanket of Night) into an island/swamp, as most EDH games are multiplayer games. I will reconsider adding in Stormtide Leviathan, however!

Thanks for the suggestions!

If Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is out of budget then I would suggest things like Contaminated Ground, Evil Presence, Stormtide Leviathan, Tainted Well, Lingering Mirage, Sea's Claim, and Spreading Seas. All of these are cheap on both CMC and $$ and can help push your Commander through.

Hope this helps.
