Stormtide Leviathan Discussion

Panas on Fort Treva

Alright, I'll make a list of pillowfort cards that you may want to consider. Remember that a pillow fort is not just about taxing people that attack you, it's also about making clear that it's to their disadvantage to spend their resources on you rather than someone else. Taxing is extremely effective early, but later in the game it becomes less relevant.

To counteract this, you can include some cards that demonstrate that when something happens to you, the one who did it has major repercussions (aka rattlesnakes). Take Aura Thief, Archon of Justice and Academy Rector, as well as your Karmic Justice as prime examples of this. Another good one is the white equivalent of grave pact: Martyr's Bond. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker fulfils a similar role. Last but not least is Dissipation Field.

Then you also have true protection. Cards that specifically state that you cannot be harmed: Solitary Confinement is the best example, but you also have lite versions in Crawlspace and Teferi's Moat. Stormtide Leviathan can work too, but it's very expensive and colour heavy.

The last point I wish to make concerns Privileged Position and its interaction with Sterling Grove.

Overall, the list looks very nice! It's just that people now understand that taxing them is your way of earning time and that you should be considered as a potential big threat late in the game. So the best course of action is to take you out first. No pillow fort can handle a coalition of 3 other players just by taxing.

On a sidenote, how does the deck win???

Kiora's Follower

Llanowar Elves

Prophet of Kruphix

Archetype of Imagination

Stormtide Leviathan

I had a fun Kiora, the Crashing Wave deck. My win conditions were to either waste my opponents time until I swing lethal with a flying leviathan or I had splashed red for the amazing card Crater's Claws which combos with Kruphix for an unlimited mana dump.

You'll be able to make a fun deck with this. It might not win a lot but it will run well.

Alternate idea, Kiora, Master of the Depths with Willbreaker. Use these with Battlefield Thaumaturge and cards like Gridlock and Thrive to shut down your opponents creature base by targeting them with your cheap spells. However this relies on playing against creature decks and in a modern set that's not terribly likely.

That is a great card. I wish I had a copy, but sadly I do not and it is out of budget for this deck. I do have Stormtide Leviathan which doubles as a beatstick as well as it locks down who can attack.

I left this over on deckbox, but incase you didn't see it:

I Like it! Stormtide Leviathan might hurt you more than help you unless you have something like Levitation. Also, you may want some more card draw for the times you can't keep a creature on the board. Let me know what you need to build this, I have a lot of these cards sitting around.

Those are many flyers you got there. Maybe Warden of Evos Isle and Gravitational Shift? Also, Stormtide Leviathan might interest you.

First and foremost I'd say make the deck mono-Blue. It doesn't seem like adding in green is giving any particular value and drop Stormtide Leviathan.

Second you'll want to make your creature base more consistent, having one of each creature isn't too good of an idea considering there will be a small chance of you drawing that card when you need it.

Here are a few suggestions as to what should be added and/or dropped:

Some examples to add:4x Snapcaster Mage1-2x Baral, Chief of Compliance3-4x Voidmage Prodigy2-3x Sigil Tracer 3x Stonybrook Banneret 4x Delver of Secrets  Flip 2-3x Remand 1-2x Spell Snare

Examples to drop: Archetype of Imagination hes redundant if youre running Docent of Perfection  Flip Simic Signet you can replace this with some better value lands that you can fetch. Venser's Journal its not doing much for you since you dont have immense amounts of card draw.

The guy above me is also correct. You need a bunch of instant/sorcery spells to make your wizards more effective. Let me know if budget is an issue and we can go over some more budget effective cards as well since a lot that Im suggesting are pretty expensive.

Benzilla11 I see your point and I stand corrected. Ive updated my description to fix this error as well as switched out Sage Owl. Although it hasn't happened to me yet there's always the risk that 4 lands/noncreature cards would appear and so Augury Owl does mitigate this. Thank you!

Deep-Sea Kraken is actually my Plan B if I can't get Ula online. For every card my opponent casts 1 time counter gets removed & combo with clockspinning. I never had the need to suspend it though.

I've looked at the creature selection again and these are the ones I would consider:

Aethersquall Ancient Mass creature removal but it will take awhile & could back fire

Benthic Behemoth Islandwalk, 7/6 & no negative abilities :D

Alternatively, I could add another Stormtide Leviathan, Simic Sky Swallower, and/or Scourge of Fleets. I do understand that having a playset allows for better consistency.

Holtzman thanks for letting me know about the twin, I'll replace him in no time! As for Stormtide Leviathan, I'm not too hip on how he limits my attackers. Maybe Archetype of Imagination instead? Scourge of Fleets is cool and a definate maybe, but Strionic Resonator seems perfect! Thanks a ton man have a great one
