Crush of Tentacles Discussion

Nice! I can't wait to see it in action. It looks like a lot of fun! There are a couple cards I think you'd really like: Approach of the Second Sun, Commit / Memory, Generous Gift, Beast Within, Crush of Tentacles, Mnemonic Wall and Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive
You can never have enough removal.

Really cool word-of-the-day idea!
The deck looks a bit top-heavy, though I understand that tends to happen when you go Sphinx Tribal ;)
Depending on the speed of your meta, I would consider adding a couple more board wipes since that your good creatures are deployed so late in the game. Would help you stave off the nonsense until you're ready to send in the air force.
Some recommendations include:
Also an important note, Magus of the Moat was just reprinted, in case you are so inclined...
Good luck :)

Crush of Tentacles is a great form of flavorful removal. Cryptic Serpent and Deep-Sea Kraken are a couple other fatties you can cheat in for less mana. Also kinda surprised you don't have Halimar Depths in your build. Stormsurge Kraken can be fun, but I am biased in this as lieutenant cards are kinda pet cards for me. Reef Worm is fun, and just gets bigger and bigger. Tatyova, Benthic Druid could also get you some more card draw. Hope this helps, I know I love my sea monster deck, though I went mono blue.

love the deck. I'm still getting used to this format, what do you think about any of these Ravaging Blaze or Fall of the Titans / Mindswipe / Callous Dismissal / Flame Sweep / Hour of Devastation / Into the Story / Crush of Tentacles / Wavebreak Hippocamp / The Magic Mirror ?

I think having a couple of "sweeper" options mainboard is worth considering, too; Cyclonic Rift is probably the best for its versatility, but Crush of Tentacles is a good budget option that can also be your backup wincon.
If you'd like to stay heavy on counterspells, too, Supreme Will will give you a little more flexibility than the true hard counters do.

For sure! Here's some sideboard ideas, too:
Crush of Tentacles , Whelming Wave , Cyclonic Rift , Mystical Dispute , Negate , Aether Gust (a must for Oko), Tormod's Crypt , Grafdigger's Cage , Ashiok, Dream Render , Ratchet Bomb , Thing in the Ice Flip, or either Ugin.
Also: 1-2 Blast Zone in the deck will help hedge you against aggro.

I have other ways to win without Battle of Wits , these are Guile , Thing in the Ice Flip, Torrential Gearhulk , Crush of Tentacles and Draining Whelk . These can win when played, especially as this is a counter/control deck opponent should have little board presence. this also means that Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic can be very dangerous also.
While your advice to go the persist route would indeed make a better and more competitive deck, I wanted it to be a counter orientated deck, it is meant to be able to win games which i think it can, while intimidating the opponent with a massive pile of counters!
