Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea Discussion

Hrm, I could see the argument for Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea. Could get quite powerful in a mon-blue deck and has a slightly weaker protection element than some of the others. I'll add it to the maybeboard for now! Thanks!

I love creative builds like this one. It looks annoying as shyt to deal with, haha...

If I were to make a suggestion, it would be to add in things that make it more difficult for your opponent(s) to do anything with the time they're allotted before this deck begins to smash face. I wouldn't expect that you could fit all of the following in there, but here's some examples of what I'm talking about:

And then, also, Braid of Fire, since Jhoira can be activated during your upkeep.

I furthermore think that you would benefit from wheel effects, because I envision that you run out of cards in hand pretty quickly. I won't list them all, because I assume you're familiar with the best of them.

works exceedingly well with any lands that produce more than 1 mana such as the bounce lands or anything that has been granted the ability to produce more mana such as the above mentioned Zendikar Resurgent or for a lower on the curve example, Utopia Sprawl.

as for the flavor i personally don't think the idea you were going for comes across very well. i think if you want to have this card feel like a protector of the meek creatures you might want to give it something that can help keep other critters alive. though i do like the idea of coaxing out small creatures. perhaps something like

as long as ~ is untapped, spells your opponent casts that target creatures you control with CMC 3 or less cost 2 more to cast. T: put a creature with CMC 3 or less from your hand into play.

it's sort of a Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea mixed with Elvish Piper. let me know what you think of this sort of idea.

abby315 thanks. Setessan Champion and wipes are a reason I've been thinking of taking out Umori, the Collector.

I played Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea in the first draft, but Alseid of Life's Bounty feels more reliable. If I have a target to protect, I don't usually have a problem holding 1 mana.

Omen of the Hunt helps me to reach Shark Typhoon faster, which is the only reason for them. I could maybe split hunts and meletis 3+3.

Glad you liked it!

Pretty cool idea! Shame you can't get Setessan Champion in with the Umori clause, I always hated that she's not an enchantment creature!

I wonder if Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea would be a decent beater and perhaps better protection than Alseid of Life's Bounty, since you don't need to hold up mana to get the benefit?

Also not sure if Omen of the Hunt is necessary/good; seems like you'll be tapping out most of the time to deal with opponent's threats on T3. Could be two more The Birth of Meletis to help against aggro, and maybe there are your two slots for Callaphe instead of Alseid.

Do love the idea so hope you find success with it!

Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea can work great as Moana.

Anax, Hardened in the Forge is a good Hercules. He even brings some satyrs.

Arahbo, Roar of the World is a fitting Mufasa.

Ilharg, the Raze-Boar as Pumba.

Regal Caracal as Duchesse and the kitten from Aristocats.

Exuberant Wolfbear is an ok Balu.
