Thassa, God of the Sea Discussion

maxon on Favorite blue deck manipulation?

6 days ago

What is your favorite blue deck manipulation? I ask because I'm considering ways to take advantage of Thassa, God of the Seas scry effect. I'm thinking in the spirit of Descendant of Soramaro and Discombobulate. I can set it up so that the scry effect can be used more effectively to get rid of what I don't need, and get me swinging with monsters faster.

If you want to see the deck in question: As Cruel and Untamable as the Sea

Thanks for the insight Firebones675. I see what you mean about Rhonas the Indomitable, but in the testing I've done so far, I think the most difficult gods to activate are actually Thassa, God of the Sea and Kefnet the Mindful. Currently, all the permanents that add to blue devotion are relatively costly and don't activate Thassa until mid-late game. Also with the amount of ramp it is easy to empty your hand quickly, deactivating kefnet. Although it is usually just as easily refilled, sometimes activating him does pose a problem. Also, I think it is important to note that Kefnet is always a creature unlike the devotion gods and therefore he does activate Rhonas. Also while Rhonas' +2/+0 ability for 3 seems a little expensive, it is usually quite effective for activating himself when there's a Kiora's Follower on the board. Regarding Overbeing of Myth, I think it could be a great fit, but I will have to do some testing to see how it compares to Prime Speaker Zegana, and Zendikar Resurgent. Right now I'm thinking it will take the spot of the latter, but depending on how well it performs it might take both spots. Again, thanks for the input!

2austin5 on Amonkhet making modern miracles

1 week ago

So with my list Narset Transcendent's pseudo scry works very nicely with Serum Visions. When she can't grab a land, its comforting to not blindly vision draw a miracle so at least I know what I am getting and know that the scry could set up the miracle. And with that ability too, you dont have to put the card in your hand, if its a miracle you can feel free to not reveal it and leave it on top. In conjunction with Thassa, God of the Sea, she really is able to do work because we can scry the lands we dont need later on. I wish we could scry 3 though lol, here is to hoping we get Jace, the Mind Sculptor unbanned and can Brainstorm our way to the top.

While playtesting, I generally think that 6-7 lands is where I want to be in play at any one time, with that in mind I often do find myself at 1-2 cards in hand by turn 5. However, if I was fortunate enough to drop both thassa and Narset, they act as a nice engine to generally build your hand up quickly as well as making any other draw effect more efficient (no blind pulls generally). With Think Twice my only issue comes with the flashback. While the draw is nice, the three mana is a pain if I'm miracle triggering Entreat the Angels end step of opponents turn because if I float around 6-7 lands, that means I will only Entreat for two at most in most scenarios. Its great for terminus though and for your list could be especially flexible with Temporal Mastery as it would be a five mana investment at that point.

Disrupting Shoal is honestly one of my favorite cards in the deck though. It has the unfortunate drawback of just being dead sometimes as it is no true Force of Will, but in the late game its efficient because if I have 6 land, I can counter any 4 or less spell which in modern is most things (minus tron and eldrazi). For the early game it can be nice to for just making sure you protect from Thoughtseize or even disrupt the pestering 3 mana planeswalkers. Usually I will use it in a snag where I drop Thassa, God of the Sea turn 3, and then I will usually have another thassa in hand to pitch. So at least in my build, it becomes efficient because in the 3 and 4 slot, I have extra Thassa and Narset to pitch to it so it isn't really ever a true loss since they would be dead cards anyway, at least thats how I can justify it being "efficient" for some flexibility. And any time I have a late game Spell Pierce, it at least gives that another way to be useful. Hope this helps with a little bit of insight into each of these!

I can fit in at least 2 more creatures, so I was thinking about adding in 1x Thassa, God of the Sea or some more draw power.

Dire Undercurrents will be fun.

Chalice of Life  Flip life-gain could be relevant against aggro matches but once flipped it's an extra draw once per cycle.

I never go below 36 lands and 8-10 ramp pieces (even if you're CMC2.5). That is my philosophy because getting mana screwed sucks so much. To each their own though.

I'd add in some evasion too. Once your opponent has any board state you're just sitting there. Levitation, Thassa, God of the Sea, etc. to push through damage.

I'd supplement Door of Destinies with Coat of Arms because both are ideal in a tribal builds. Plus CoA's impact is immediate while DoD slowly builds up.

Thanks for the suggestions dotytron, I think Bident of Thassa would be a good addition, especially since Thassa, God of the Sea seems to be the hardest god to activate in the testing I've done so far. Bow of Nylea seems pretty cool too, but I think it may not fit the theme of the deck too much, I'll test it out and see if maybe a spot in the sideboard could be freed up for it.

Yes, troublinparadise this deck is only hypothetical for now since to my knowledge there is no way to get the cards from Amonkhet until the pre-release at the very earliest.
