For your lands you could look at the Kamigawa Legendary lands like Minamo, School at Water's Edge and Shizo, Death's Storehouse.

As well as the Eldrain Castles (although these are definitely not ship-themed) like Castle Vantress and Castle Locthwain.

Nephalia Drownyard is on-theme, but not that useful.

Moonring Island is somewhat more useful and also on-theme.

Karn's Bastion isn't particularly on-theme, but definitely helps the -1/-1 synergy.

Witch's Clinic might be another land to consider, although not really on-theme.

Aside from lands, Crush of Tentacles, Ominous Seas, Bident of Thassa and Retreat to Coralhelm might be nice. Not too boat-themed, but still very much sea-themed.

Lastly I have two on-theme cards I personally enjoy a lot in my Sea-Creatures tribal, but aren't that good, nor really boet-themed, but I'm giving them anyway: Sigiled Starfish and Purple-Crystal Crab.

Hey, well done on a budget less than $100.

Some budget upgrades to consider then I'll explain some of these suggestions.

There's lot of ramp here specifically from land ramp spells and Arixthemthes is ramp. You can afford to cut some ramp for more draw and lower mana cost draw such as Brainstorm and Growth Spiral will help to remove slumber counters faster. Court of Bounty can be repeatable draw with the monarch as well as from your hand cheat a sea monster onto the battlefield or put a land. Garruk's Uprising can give all sea monsters trample as well as draw a card whenever a 4 or more power creature you control enters the battlefield (ETB) including creature tokens.

Fierce Empath can tutor for any 6 CMC or higher creature and you can bounce him with Whelming Wave or Crush of Tentacles to cast him again. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner can untap Arixthemthes as well as be repeatable draw like Garruk's Uprising. Spawning Kraken is an upgrade for a sea monster since it can create it's own army as long as it, Arixthemthes or other sea monsters do combat damage to a player. Rimewood Falls is an upgrade for Woodland Stream so Farseek can search for a Simic dual land.

Good luck with your deck.

lagotripha - I can definitely see trying to throw in some more Upheaval type effects, but Paradoxical Outcome being only my stuff doesn't seem amazing unless I have a ton of those 1 drops you were talking about. Crush of Tentacles might be another decent option as a poor man's version of upheaval. Could also be the play after a resolved Upheaval if I don't have an Omnath, Locus of Creation or Primeval Titan in hand.

Great call.

Check out Crush of Tentacles . It's Upheaval + a potential 8/8 upside.

One of the first decks I made, after getting into commander, was The Briny Deep. One of my favorite aspects of having these theme decks is perusing the spoilers as they come out looking for an ocean card (or torture, or haunted house, or natural disaster, etc). The ocean themes are often delightful; Encrust , Crush of Tentacles , and Giant Oyster are straightforward enough... but the powerful push and pull of Breaking Wave takes it up to eleven for me. What a fun color and theme!

Housegheist I do think Flood of Tears is probably better than Crush of Tentacles, but I didn't suggest cutting Crush of Tentacles because it fits with the theme, but if you are okay sacrificing a bit of flavour and synergy, then flood of tears is probably better than crush of tentacles. Also I do agree that it is nice to have some versatility in Khalni Ambush  Flip, especially with the landfall subtheme, so it isn't really a necessary cut.

Nice deck! (cool name too) Teferi's Time Twist not only saves Yorion, but enables the ETB chain once again, nice! May I suggest you think about Yahenni's Expertise ? It does cost 1 more than Witch's Vengeance , and I don't follow the modern tournaments much to see if 4 mana is "too late", but apart from killing all creature types, you can also cast Treacherous Blessing for free!

Myself, I was always trying to create a casual Demonic Pact deck for my 2-headed-giant playgroup, but with Crush of Tentacles ! Thanks for the Yorion, Sky Nomad idea! +1 !

@Snap157 great feedback. I have every card mentioned so I will be making a few of these suggested changes. Let me explain a few of these choices as well.

I'll be keeping:

Cards I'll be swapping out

  • Ravenous Chupacabra, it's a single target so maybe I'll swap him for Slum Reaper, I don't know for sure yet.
  • Thassa's Oracle, I had Doomsday in here but I took it out because I don't like ending games early. I play for fun and love long, grindy games. Maybe I'll add in a fail-safe like Dread so I don't kill myself with my own commander.

I'm still figuring out what to swap out for some other suggestions but I plan on adding Rhystic Study and probably Thought Vessel. I am currently running Thorn of the Black Rose instead of Phyrexian Arena because I could get her off a Gyruda trigger.

I really appreciate the feedback!
