Titus7007 on Under the Sea

Porkules Thanks for some great advise. I really like Verity Circle for this. I'll find some space for that. The main reason I am running Cloudkin Seer is so Thassa can pick him up and set him down each turn to draw a card and trigger Nadir Kraken/ Otherwise I don't like it much either. I am open to any suggestions for blue creatures with ETB effects that might be better, but I prefer a creature to Omen of the Sea

This is probably the first mono-blue deck I've ever made. This is mostly for casual play in paper, but it is going to be playing against a few strong decks and I don't want it to get blown out.

So, if this is a more paper standard, best of three type deck, good card advantage that's cheaper than the cloudkin seer is Omen of the Sea and if you need alternate wincons, try taking out up to two copies of the Unsummon and replace it with some Octoprophet (3/3 for 4 and scrys 2. subjectively better than the cloudkin), Thassa's Oracle , or possibly a seven drop in Kiora Bests the Sea God . I am working on a mono blue devotion deck, and the Altar of the Pantheon is a really good ramp and lifegain source for this. I am also running only one Serpent of Yawning Depths instead of two, and instead 4 Thassa, Deep-Dwelling . Im used to playing mono blue and dimir artifacts or stompy more than anything in Bo3 and Bo1. If you really want that Stinging Lionfish to be a value engine, why not think about some Verity Circle for card draw. Id play 2 or 3 max and then nothing but instants and cantrips like you already have. I would also rather run Wavebreak Hippocamp over cloudkin. Dunno why I dislike the card so much, but I do.

Looks like you might've forgot to designate your commander, but no worries I know it's Phelddagrif haha. Phelddagrif is one of my faves, and I really dig that you're going for wins here rather than just group hug. I have a Super Hippo deck too if you wanna check it out.

You might like these cards: Nacatl War-Pride, Seedborn Muse, Beck / Call, Mantle of Leadership, Gideon, Champion of Justice, Dingus Staff, Clone Legion, Deploy to the Front, Nature's Revolt, Verity Circle, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Biomantic Mastery

Exxie97 on Zur's Rebellion ($20 Budget)

@king-saproling Glad to hear you enjoyed the deck and thanks for the suggestions. I haven’t actually touched this deck in over a year now, but now might be the time to dig it back out. There is also a good chance I’ll be upgrading the super budget to normal budget (lol, almost all the mana rocks I included are over a dollar now).
I like the little tap theme you suggested, I think it fits quite well and being able to cash in with Verity Circle give the deck a solid reason run with it.
I didn’t even know that a rebel aura existed, I’ll definitely try it out along with Crib Swap.

This is really impressive! Super unique and interesting deck for such a tight budget. Zur and the enchantments he can grab provide a really nice framework for rebels to thrive in. Great idea!

What do you think of Verity Circle + Blind Obedience? Could even toss in a Rathi Trapper or Errant Doomsayers for an extra draw per round while disrupting opps. Amoeboid Changeling + Rebel Informer is another fun Rebel-themed control engine.

You might like these too: Bound in Silence, Oppression, Kaho, Minamo Historian, Crib Swap (can be recycled with Lin Sivvi!), Nameless Inversion, Curator's Ward, Flickerform, Coalition Flag, Mirrormade. It's a shame Training Grounds is so pricey, but maybe it'll get a reprint someday?

TolarianScientist on Big Brain Plays - [[Primer]]

The deck is cool (the primer is pure comedy, lol), but I think it draws too little cards. I'd definitely add Mystic Remora and also Verity Circle, paying cumulative upkeep won't be a problem for the first one and, with a bunch of mana, tapping stuff and drawing cards looks legit on the second one.

Virgin green players also add Mirri's Guile, but it doesn't draw cards so it's meh.

Since you have 24 creatures also Finale of Devastation will come through with solid ones.

Feebs24 on Thassa, Deep-Dwelling Flickering

Thassa's Oracle seems like a great add due to its versatility as a combo and value piece. Definitely going to be an addition to the deck

Gadwick, the Wizened seems like a great mana sink, since the deck doesn't have many of them, and with all of the mana rocks it seems like X can get very big very fast. I am still contemplating whether or not to add Verity Circle , but Gadwick, the Wizened might be strong enough with it to make me add it.

Leyline of Anticipation is a generally good card but since Thassa's ability triggers on your end step, I think that you would want to play most of your good etb creatures on your turn, effectively removing most of the value of it.

Gilded Drake is an overall great card for blue, but it is quite expensive and it doesn't interact with our flickering due to it leaving our control when it enters. But, it might be able to work in the deck simply because of how strong its ability is. Honestly, I think that having it is up to your preference of the card or if you care about cost or not.
