Commander / EDH GU (Simic) Ramp



"Have you ever stared into the depths of the ocean and wonder what giant creatures lurk beneath the waves?"

When i saw that they were going to print Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle as a card, with an ability in perfect flavour with his/her (its?) lore,

I knew I had to create a Commander deck around it.

So what's better than one giant monster of the deep?

Well, how about a whole boat-load of them!

I've collected some of the most disgusting, slippery and horrifying creatures of the deep in this tribal sea-monsters deck.

The plan is to ramp a lot ( Explosive Vegetation , Sol Ring , Rampant Growth , Explore , Urban Evolution ), get your commander on the field and keep ramping into these giant fish and sea-monsters.

Add in board wipes/returns ( Crush of Tentacles , Whelming Wave , Evacuation ) to counter those pesky aggressive decks.

Throw in some merfolk utility ( Prime Speaker Zegana , Kiora's Follower , Tatyova, Benthic Druid , Thrasios, Triton Hero ) as well as some other nice-to-have cards, ( Voidslime , Plasm Capture , Blue Sun's Zenith , Frilled Mystic ) To foil your opponents plans and expedite their demise.

Finally, use one of the many finishers ( Overwhelming Stampede , Deepchannel Mentor , Archetype of Imagination ) to swim (or fly/trample) in for the win!

Any suggestions and general feedback is greatly appreciated!
