Charix, the Raging Isle

Legendary Creature — Leviathan Crab

Spells your opponents cast that target Charix, the Raging Isle cost more to cast.

: Charix gets +X/-X until end of turn, where X is the number of Islands you control.

Hey, interesting version with Dark Suspicions like effects.

Consider cutting some of the lesser sea monsters for more ramp and some more setup for Runo?

Isleback Spawn and Inkwell Leviathan have shroud which prevents them from being targeted by Krothuss to be copied. Lorthos, the Tidemaker, Tromokratis, Charix, the Raging Isle are legendary and copies of them don't give you any value when they're created thus you don't really want to copy them. Even with Sakashima of a Thousand Faces you have better legendary sea monsters here and Krothuss is really the target to be copying when you control Sakashima.

Since not playing any 1/1 creatures then Heartless Summoning is good ramp for sea monsters. Having lots of high CMC sea monsters stuck in your hand/unable to be cast can be a problem. Brainstorm, Frantic Search and Windfall can help when this happens and to setup Runo. Scroll Rack is more expensive price, but has a really helpful repeatable effect.

Another reason other than ramp to add more two drop mana rocks as well as Everflowing Chalice is to have more chances to combo with Hullbreaker Horror + Sol Ring. Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Mox Amber (when you control Krothuss or Runo) are more expensive price mana rocks that combo with Hullbreaker.

Good luck with your deck.

I specifically didn't include Arcades, the Strategist because it requires defenders, and I specifically chose not to use defenders so I could use Huatli, the Sun's Heart , and especially the fact that Charix, the Raging Isle doesn't have defender.

monkeyofficeboy on Yes, It's Arcades, I know...

Made some changes after I got some better cards!

Removed

Wall of Caltrops Too weak, too expensive, too Banding!

Jareth, Leonine Titan Doesn't really fit in with the theme, and lacks synergy, so had to go.

Wall of Shields Too expensive, and still too Banding

Wall of Air Yes it flys but it doesn't do much else, and gets replaced by something much better.

Replacements

Sylvan Caryatid It provides mana of any colour, its Hexproof and is a decent cost too. Handy!!

Charix, the Raging Isle Very cheap for such a big beater in this deck, with added value.

Dragon Throne of Tarkir Something to help out the few none Defender creatures in the deck.

Hornet Nest A great token maker that will produce very useful tokens in this deck. A defender to boot!

I'd like a tribal tag. Gotta represent my Charix, the Raging Isle crab tribal deck somehow

I'm surprised you didn't mention Charix, the Raging Isle in your opening statement where you talked about Erratic Cyclops .
