Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea Discussion
2 months ago
I just started collecting cards recently (I've been playing MTG Arena for a long time though). I've been trying to save my cards on here in my inventory. My problem occurs when I try and save an alternate artwork for a card. For example, I've been trying to save Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea with the 260 variation, but whenever I try to do so in the Inventory screen, it just leaves it on the default variation despite saying the changes were saved. How do I fix this? Sorry if this is obvious to anyone, I just joined the site.

psionictemplar yeah believe me i know. XD i have a habbit of always adding a bunch of cards that look interesting. This use to be way more clutered before i put this here. For the theme, like title says, im going for more of a midrange style. Mix of aggro and control. So im trying to aim for a balance of creatures and spells. I've been watching youtube videos for guidance and pull some cards from various build from Tolarian Professor, strickly better MTG and Giant monster games. In a way id like for this deck to be a jack of all trades type, can do several things but not excelling in one particular area. This is well suited for the group of friends i play with. I know abilities matter more but ive always been a person who likes to use cards that have artwork i enjoy, not solely run stuff just cuz they are objectively the best, it depends. This applies mostly with creatures for me, an old habit i have from my yugioh days XD but i digress. Thats why mono blue has been difficult for me to make, cuz a lot of creatures are meh to me. However i did find some stuff i like. So creatures like Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea Cloudfin Raptor and Thoughtbound Phantasm can get bigger over time. And for Thoughtbound Phantasm uses surveil so i threw in Narcomoeba in so i can a free creatures out. Id prefer if i could get a creature that has this same ability but with some added stuff idk. Also threw in some surveil cards like Dream Eater and Dazzling Lights to boost Thoughtbound Phantasm . Also have one Rise from the Tides for a token flood if i need it and some milling options like Mind Sculpt and have Sacred Excavation to use on Compelling Argument for more mill options. Cryptic Serpent can get out quick and cheaper with all the instants and sorceries played. And for Phyrexian Revoker i already have a full set of 4 irl cards so i might throw them here, can be good control to block card abilities, and have the other Phyrexian Metamorph to copy a creature if needed. Like i said id like this to be a jack of all trades kinda deck. I just need to get a good ratio of cards to balance out this deck.

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.
