Stormtide Leviathan Discussion
1 week ago
Depending on which angle of control you want to take, I can offer different suggestions.
Some staples for Derevi you'll want to consider no matter what build you end up going for: Swords to Plowshares, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Birds of Paradise, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, and Counterspell.
From your description, you could consider running a pillow-fort strategy. It's kind of like an extremely watered-down version of Stax that really just prevents opponents from attacking you, while they still have the resources to attack each other. It's definitely a politics-heavy strategy, making deals with opponents to convince them that other people are better targets until you start laying down wincons.
Your wincons are going to be big fatties that also lock down the board or take advantage of your protection: Stormtide Leviathan (can't recommend this one enough), Azor's Elocutors, Isperia, Supreme Judge, and Blazing Archon.
If you want more traditional control that utilizes tapping/untapping, the general good all-arounds are: Aven Mindcensor, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Hokori, Dust Drinker, Trygon Predator, Bant Charm, Supreme Verdict, and Winter Orb.
For blink abuse, I suggest Deadeye Navigator.
As a general structure for your EDH deck, try to follow the pattern of 10 mana accelerators, 10 card draw effects, 5 spot removal, 5 boardwipes, and 4 tutor effects.
There's a few filler cards that don't fall in any of those categories, and don't necessary synergise. I recommend removing: Djinn of Infinite Deceits, Hada Spy Patrol, Kazandu Tuskcaller, Phantom Nantuko, Winged Coatl, Wonder, Curse of Predation, Pyramid of the Pantheon, Thunderstaff, AEthermage's Touch, Biomass Mutation, and Sprouting Vines.

MY Sram list is not because I only keep lists I have in paper on here. Once I dismantle it I put the list in my brew folder and delete it. I can re-add it if you'd be interested. The game-plan was casting enchantments that stopped opponents' creatures from attacking and blocking (while drawing a card) to let Sram beat face. More effective than you'd think, especially 1v1 but did decently when played more politically in 3+ pods.
You want both and more for redundancy.
You also have to read the board on when to cast her. Running her out ASAP is your plan but if the black/blue player has 2+ untapped lands then maybe not. Bait out removal/counters with other threats. Be political in promising to not attack an opponent if they let you have your extra turn to deal with a bigger threat to you both.
While you do have big bombs like Stormtide Leviathan what if you added unblcokable creatures? Invisible Stalker and Phantom Warrior can be boosted easily, when it eats a removal/counter that is one less for Medomai, gives you another option before T6, and are viable options in case Medomai cannot stick.
Out of curiosity, what do you (generally) do with your second turn when Medomai connects?

Hello Shane.Allen, I'm sorry it's taken some time to get back to you, I've been away for a couple of weeks. I agree with Polybius that some more "tax" like cards could be good. Maybe Laboratory Maniac as another wincon with Enter the Infinite? The problem with making card suggestions with a deck like this with low synergy and more Mono U good stuff is that there is ton of ways to build it and for it to still be good. I think it will mainly come down to preference for you. Here are some cards to consider if you havnt already, and mind you I don't have suggestions of what to take out for them since it's just good stuff for good stuff.
Sphinx of the Final Word (I'm making the assumption that you are playing Teferi is because there is a decent amount of control in your group and Teferi is very very good against them, as is this card)
Mind Over Matter is another combo you could add with Azami in your deck to draw your deck
Hope this give you more to brew with!

youre going to want some cheaper ways to scry. Serum Visions and Telling Time are probably the best options. also Grozoth backed up by Inkwell Leviathan and Stormtide Leviathan are probably the two best targets for the quest

Hmmm... just off the top of my head, some ideas include Petradon, Somnophore, Colossal Whale, Stormtide Leviathan, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Tradewind Rider, Dungeon Geists, Sower of Temptation, Rimescale Dragon, Lorthos, the Tidemaker, Heartwood Storyteller, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Deus of Calamity... I hope some of those are helpful!

Yeah I'm lookin' to add more combos that stay in the theme, and more repeatable control stuff like Flood and Capsize. I'm tempted to throw in a War Barge to use with Stormtide Leviathan and Capsize, maybe even Merfolk Assassin, but it doesn't quiiiiiite feel right to me.

Thanks LeaPlath. After some consideration, I do like the sound of midrange, are there any changes to my current set of cards that you would recommend? I replaced Stormtide Leviathan with Deepchannel Mentor which seems better as a support card, and for cheaper to boot. Perhaps some counter or removal spells? Rewind is a particular favourite of mine.
