Tromokratis Discussion

This is pretty sweet, I never thought of playing Nykthos in a Quest for Ula's Temple deck before! Sage of Epityr is great at setting up your library for the Quest, and Wistful Selkie helps dig for the Quest if you don't have it and gives +3 devotion for Nykthos. Cloudfin Raptor doesn't fit in this deck at all; coincidentally, Sage of Epityr fits perfectly, so there you go ;D

Other than that, I think you need some removal-creatures that give more devotion than what you have currently. Harbinger of the Tides is a pretty useful one, and Merfolk Trickster can fog a creature for a turn. For some disruption against noncreature decks you could also consider playing Judge's Familiar or Mausoleum Wanderer instead of Kraken Hatchling; while it's a Kraken and fits in the theme of the deck, there really isn't much point in cheating out a 1 mana 0/4 with your Quest. I do suppose it can block, though.

Also, I recommend replacing Tromokratis and Shipbreaker Kraken (and maybe 1 Lorthos) with some combination of Stormtide Leviathan and Inkwell Leviathan. They're less easy to hard-cast, but Tromokratis is mostly worse than Inkwell Leviathan in my opinion, and while Kraken's ability is okay, Stormtide Leviathan is even better at keeping your opponent's creatures at bay. (that rhymed) From my experience playing Whale tribal, Stormtide Leviathan and Scourge of Fleets can completely take control of games when used together.

Icbrgr on Multiplayer planchase in Modern

1 month ago

From what I understand Commander is the most common place for Planchase to be played PhthisisClock but for some reason its never taken with my playgroup.... we have a few EDH decks collecting dust but nobody ever wants to play them it's kinda annoying...especially after I spent as much time as I did putting my Tromokratis deck together....

I've been toying with the idea of Planchase for about a year now and just recently read about playing with an "Eternities-map" so now I am kinda obsessing over it and wondering/waiting if anyone can talk me off the ledge or convince me that planchase is better with individual planar decks or not.

I know you said no mono blue but I play a voltron Tromokratis that's petty fun. It's non traditional mono blue with counter spells only to protect my valuables and a good bit of extra turns for more face beating. No infinite. No permission mumbo jumbo. Just stack equipment and swing for lethal.

I have a similar strategy with my Tromokratis deck. Since it's not a very common commander most people will forget about its second ability and unwittingly leave themselves wide open for an attack.

All hail Lorthos, the Tidemaker! And his brother Tromokratis. But even Lorthos and Tromokratis bow down to Braids, Conjurer Adept.

Jovak on Blue Lion - Thassa Voltron

While I like the idea of Tromokratis, the 7CMC has me hesitating. So, unless I can figure out some way to get around that in mono-blue super early that doesn't involve me getting lucky pulls, I'm going to have to keep that on the side.

Love the name :) Tromokratis could be a nice addition as well as an alternative CMDR.

To be honest if you have a few of All Is Dust you dont need to worry if creatures need to be blocked or are unblockable, once one of those nasty spells resolve when you have other spells suspended is where you usually either take the lead or cripple everyone.

Things I would cut...

Bearer of the Heavens, Veiling Oddity, Tromokratis, Timebender, Deep-Sea Kraken, maybe Jori En, Ruin Diver, Breaker of Armies, Colossus of Akros, Teleportal, Invoke the Firemind, Blustersquall, Psychic Spiral, and Mizzium Skin.

Also I noticed you don't have any tutors in the deck... I would look into those...
