digdigo Giant Octopus is bad because of its 4 mana for 3/3 cost-without any additional effects.

Also, I like the inclusion of Fog Bank and Kiora, the Crashing Wave as those are pretty good, but the rest of the deck can use some work, depending upon how serious you want to make this deck/actually play Friday Night Magic with.

One thing you always want to figure out when building a deck is what kind of archetype you're aiming for, whether it's aggro, mid-range, combo, or control. Most decks can be classified into one of those albeit with the occasional overlap. So, you need to ask yourself, "Am I trying to play a deck that gets out creatures as early as possible in order to relentlessly put pressure on my opponent?" or "Am I trying to ramp up to big green/blue creatures, playing removal and counterspells to keep you alive long enough to drop your win conditions onto the board"? or "Am I trying to play a handful of powerful creatures that will win the game after I control the board, counter spells etc."?

Looking at the decklist it seems like you're aiming for the middle option. This bein the case I'd drop the Cloudfin Raptor, Giant Octopus, and add four Llanowar Elves or better yet, if the budget is not an issue, four Birds of Paradise, four Kiora's Follower, a couple Master of Waves, and either Rampant Growth or Search for Tomorrow, or Explore which will help you get to your bigger creatures faster.

Epic battles? Emrakul doesn't stand a chance...especially when Storm Crow teams up with the Giant Octopus, everybody knows that giant octopus want to be the sole-tentacle bearing monstrosity in the multiverse. Everybody truly endangered...how's that for an epic story line?
