Thassa, God of the Sea

Thassa, God of the Sea Discussion
3 weeks ago
enpc I appreciate the feed back, but there's a few things I'd like to say in rebuttal
Brago, King Eternal is here to abuse planeswalkers by flickering them, also works with Dockside Extortionist (huge mana)Thassa, God of the Sea helps him do this, also helps me get to Voltron with Sisay, love taps with Master of Cruelties
By nature I think Sissay is going to be a bit clunky, legendary tribal will do that to a deck, but for my task at hand and in my meta it works nice.
The lands work well with sack lands, say I sack Scalding Tarn have the choice of Tropical Island Plateau Underground Sea there's a ton of mana ramp and fix purely so I can draw into combo control, hexproof indestructible, with cards like Xenagos, god of reveals /hadclimb, Blackblade Reforged , Heroes' Podium Sisay gets big quick, unblockable it's just fun.
The whole point of this deck is to slow down my groups Arch enemies 3 decks and well, it does that, fast and it's fun to pilot.
For my first EDH deck I'm quite happy with it,
The counterpells need work for sure but I'm looking at it,

Thanks DeinoStinkus for your suggestions. Palinchron I won't play because I've got enough high CMCs already and I don't like infinite combos. Eldrazi Displacer on the other hand is a very good tip. I've got 8 cards that can make me that colourless mana so that shouldn't be a problem.

Have ya thought of adding in some of these fun cards for shenanigans?
Maybe add in these cards as well to help with the ramp, tutoring, or just general value!
- Dockside Extortionist
- Thassa, God of the Sea
- Cyclonic Rift
- Soul's Fire
- Chandra's Ignition
- Lightning Greaves
- Fellwar Stone
Hope that helps!

A fun thing to do with Zur is to just cheat out a God or two, Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Athreos, God of Passage are both decent choices I find, but Thassa, God of the Sea can be a fine choice even if you can't make her a creature, since her abilities are pretty useful.
In an emergency, you can just make one of the God a Pariah to drag things out, and if you can make things unblockable with Thassa, dragging things out might work out well.
Deck looks like lots of fun, and seems pretty non-toxic! Good work making Zur seem reasonable.
Another good bit of tech is Imprisoned in the Moon which will just ruin a deck relying on a creature, PW, or even land's day, and they can't sac it nearly as easily vs Darksteel Mutation. You can theoretically remove a Commander with hexproof, indestructible, sac-proof, anything but protection from blue nearly, which is pleasantly rare.

Hi, welcome to edh!
First off, I want to say I think the deck looks great so far! I've been playing Yuriko for about 8-9 months now, and here are some things I'd suggest:
Mu Yanling I personally don't like planeswalkers in Yuriko decks. Since you won't have very good blockers, it likely won't survive until your next turn. I'd play something like Thassa, God of the Sea instead
Decree of Pain the cycling mode hurts your creatures much more than the rest of the table since you play lots of 1/1 's and 2/2 's. Commit / Memory has a cmc of 10, and can be a temporary removal spell or counterspell
Kindred Dominance unless you have an effect like Conspiracy out on the board, this hurts you a lot too. I'd play something like Evacuation instead. It's instant speed, and you can re-play your creatures a lot faster than your opponents can.
12-16. Inkfathom Infiltrator, Invisible Stalker, Quickling, Shadowmage Infiltrator, and Spark Double aren't good enough to justify their mana cost in my opinion. Some replacements I would suggest are Changeling Outcast, Dimir Infiltrator, Gudul Lurker, Mist-Cloaked Herald, Tormented Soul, and Baleful Strix
I hope this was helpful! If you want to check out my Yuriko deck, the link is https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/26-07-19-yuriko-edh/

bossomus Thanks so much for your input! Venser is already an addition to my deck on paper, just one of those things I havent updated here yet - along with the removal of Magic Mirror, it was too slow for the amount of instants/sorceries. Callaphe is kind of just a meme in this deck because Thassa, God of the Sea cant just make it unlockable for lethal late game and everyone underestimates it. But I definitely see what you mean there, it could be dumped for a counter, along with Gadwick. Heraldic Banner is nice because the amount of creatures in this deck does mean I swing in sometimes. It makes this deck more Midrange or Tempo than control, but it could be easily swapped. Dream Eater has to stay for me because Gosh I love this card. Surveil 4 every turn + bounce is too fun to pass up. It's also good for ditching cards I dont want from Cavalier of Gales, Sensei's Divining Top and other top-deck abilities. However, I mostly play casual, so the need to replace a good card with a great card isnt super high up on my list for the money.
I see you're also leaning towards more of a wizards theme, which is fun but not something I really built around with my creatures.
