The name of the game is Flying whales and energy. Pump up the energy. Unleash the uncommon and rare flying whales. Midrange Rampy Simic Whales & Reptiles. If you don't like it, go shoot it out your blowhole.

Playing with this deck be like:

Thriving Turtle - Gets the Aether rolling. Pump him up a couple times to block anything they throw at you and you'll be sure to have a whale of a time.

Longtusk Cub - Cute little guy, until he gets energized and all of a sudden he's a whaleshark.

Attune with Aether & Servant of the Conduit - Fix that mana before the blubber spoils.

Rogue Refiner & Glimmer of Genius - Get energy and draw cards! Gotta find dem rare whales!

Empyreal Voyager - Gonna poke you like a narwhal. Pairs well with Highspire Infusion.

Aetherwind Basker & Bristling Hydra - "I want ya'll to suck my Lizard, Lizard. You bitches wanna f*# me when you smell my under-arm." -ODB

Architect of the Untamed - Sometimes you need to go beast mode with the Baleen.

Bounty of the Luxa - Gotta get that sonar bleeping and blipping.

Fabrication Module - Consult your physician if you have an energy-erection lasting over 4 hours.

Long-Finned Skywhale - You know what they say about long-finned whales... This dude's a load of a sperm whale. Play more of when going aggro; less on the draw yo.

Aethertide Whale - Rare Humpback-to-your-hand whale.

Aethersquall Ancient - Cannonball! When the aethersquall jumps into the pool, there's not even water left. Bounce em, play em again, rebuild energy, bounce em again, attack face. Great vs go wide and token strategies.

I had tried building something g similar to this, and I definitely like the way you have more ways to gain energy counters. Dynavolt Tower may fit well here.

Otherwise hat ancient flying leviathan will do you right when she eats all year energy to wipe the creatures off.

Awesome and plus one.

Thanks dthoreson813!

The aethersquall is an awesome way to close out. Comes in and wipes the board, returning all my energy producers to hand. Then I replay them next turn, if fabrication module is out, then the aethersquall gets pumped with each energy source. Then I have enough energy to wipe again and attack into empty blockers. Replay my creatures next turn, repeat.

Why only 1 of's some of the bigger creatures? Just too high of an energy cost on them?

tasuman I'd like to run another Bristling Hydra or two in the sideboard for situations where I need another hexproof beater. But I gotta have my whales so I'm running 3 Long-Finned Skywhales with one more in the sideboard. As far as the HUGE creatures, I really only want to draw one per game as a closer, either the Aethersquall Ancient or the Aetherwind Basker. They cost a lot and I don't want to end up with multiples in hand. I have a second Aethersquall in the sideboard for when going against go-wide/token decks. But essentially these are the finishers that I want to build up to playing and then hopefully win shortly after dropping one. The Aethertide Whale is cool cause he's a flying whale that I can avoid removal by returning to hand, but he really isn't a bomb otherwise, so I do not want to run more than 2 of it.

Another benefit to running all the little dudes with the Aethersquall Ancient is that I can bounce all other creatures and then play them out again next turn to build back energy quickly for another wipe.

If you were going to build this deck, how many of the fatties would you run and why?

Hey, I really like your deck! Thriving Turtle is a great sweet card. You are really dedicated incorperated aether whales.

Thats not a sentence. There is no dillon dillon this isnt dillon.

Keep it up.

The description makes this priceless lol. It definitely seems fun and I don't see too many snags at all. Has this been tested VS. White/Black Mardu variant?

HOPMONSTER says... #18

Thanks Ghouul! Hasn't really been tested against any top decks, just casually, but it has been a more fun than a jar of plankton so far
