Thanks for the comments!

bushido_man96 - I do already have Conjurer's Bauble in the list, but I forgot about Urza's Bauble. It's probably better than Ichor Wellspring in this build. I'll definitely swap those. Tangle Wire is interesting, but I am not really into playing mana denial type stax.

Daedalus19876 - Good point on Sheoldred. I just love the card so much haha. A lot of my removal package can hit multiple permanent types which is why I didn't feel the need for more specific removal, but I do have a Force of Vigor sitting around so I can see about adding it. Thornbite Staff is basically a board wipe with Glissa on the battlefield due to her deathtouch. Viridian Longbow is another option with her. I've seen Ashnod's Altar + Grave Pact + Hex Parasite in Glissa before, but not Attrition + Ornithopter. I'll have to consider it.

Hello there!

I have a couple suggestions for your consideration.

Equilibrium, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, and Erratic Portal will allow you to re-buy some of your bounce creatures.

Thassa's Oracle provides an additional Lab Man effect that you can bounce back to hand when you are ready to win. It is also hard to interact with outside of counter magic. And if you want to get really competitive you could include Protean Hulk and Flash alongside it.

God-Eternal Oketra may be too slow, but she does offer a different avenue of attack (no pun intended :) ) for the deck.

Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath provides lifegain, ramp, card draw and can come back over and over again

Lastly, you might consider a bit of graveyard hate since you are attempting to mill people out. Remorseful Cleric (already in your sideboard) and Scavenging Ooze are great creature options while Soul-Guide Lantern is a new great option from Theros.

cascadien - Comment incoming shortly

Here is my take on Glissa, the Traitor. I've long wanted to build her but find myself struggling immensely when faced with all of the great interactions she has with other cards. Mainly I just want to get another set of eyes on this deck to see if I am leaning to far one way or the other (i.e. too much/little removal, too much/few eggs, did I miss some really strong cards for her?, etc.). Note that I have no intention of playing the Mindslaver combo. Thanks for taking a look!

Us_marine91 - that is tough since the Shadowborn Apostles alone will cost you around $100 for 30 of them. That being said, I would suggest looking for cards with similar effects to the non-budget options in JLK's deck. For example, Vindictive Vampire and Cruel Celebrant are budget alternatives to Blood Artist, or Butcher of Malakir is a budget version of Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. Then I would look for cards that have effects which are "close enough" to some of the more expensive options. For example, Command the Dreadhorde, Bolas's Citadel, Pitiless Plunderer, and Dark Prophecy can all act as passable stand-ins for Remembrance (I can't believe that card has somehow crept up to $5!), Thrumming Stone, Black Market, and Phyrexian Arena respectively.

I'd also recommend checking out EDHrec's Shadowborn Apostle page. There you can see which commander's are used for that particular strategy. They also have a budget filter which may help you find some replacement cards.

Said on None...

This build looks pretty complete for a sea monsters theme. If you are concerned about additional ways to cheat out the big Krakens and all, then I would suggest looking at Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper. Otherwise I think you are running enough ramp to cast the sea monsters fairly early.

A few other cards you might consider are Wonder (for Stormtide Leviathan), Thryx, the Sudden Storm, Thada Adel, Acquisitor to steal opponents mana rocks, Elder Deep-Fiend as a safety net, Propaganda to blunt early aggression, Giant Oyster because it is on theme and hilarious, and Rush of Knowledge

+1 from me!
