Hullbreaker Horror Discussion

Here are some other recommendations if you like:
Big Boys that aren't Eldrazi
Deep-Sea Kraken, Ancient Stone Idol, Chancellor of the Spires, Devouring Strossus, Denizen of the Deep, Hullbreaker Horror, Icebreaker Kraken, Inkwell Leviathan, Kederekt Leviathan, Leviathan, Nezahal, Primal Tide, Tidespout Tyrant
Since ninjitsu bypasses attack triggers, then cards like Leviathan can actually be semi-viable. Good luck with the new concept, I know that I'm going to be making a ninja demon/kraken deck that should be absurd.

Yes, Hullbreaker Horror's ability is essentially optional. You don't have to bounce your own permanents if you don't want to.

Davinoth That tends to happen with cEDH lists, especially if they are stax oriented. Dissipation Field can also help. If you're looking for a top end (like the two you have in your maybeboard), also consider Hullbreaker Horror. I just noticed this card and am adding it to my UG list

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?
- Arcane Signet --> Isleback Spawn
- Heartless Summoning --> Inkwell Leviathan
- Talisman of Dominance --> Grozoth
- Everflowing Chalice --> Elder Deep-Fiend
- Brainstorm --> Lorthos, the Tidemaker
- Frantic Search --> Tromokratis
- Windfall --> Charix, the Raging Isle
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 think you should cut: Brutalizer Exarch, Conduit of Ruin, Frost Titan, Giant Adephage, Myr Battlesphere, Oblivion Sower, Pelakka Wurm, Phyrexian Ingester, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Rattleclaw Mystic, Sagu Mauler, Simic Sky Swallower, Sphinx Ambassador, Stalking Vengeance, Tornado Elemental, Plasm Capture, Pandemonium, Sunken Hope, Tezzeret the Seeker, Chromatic Lantern, Darksteel Ingot, Disaster Radius, Explosive Vegetation, Heat Shimmer, Rude Awakening, and Spelltwine. As for lands, I do think you should replace: Izzet Boilerworks, Spawning Bed, and Temple of the False God.
I think you should add: Temur Sabertooth, Genesis Ultimatum, Etali, Primal Storm, Skyshroud Claim, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Chaos Warp, Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient, Terror of the Peaks, Kodama of the East Tree, Reclamation Sage, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Consecrated Sphinx, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Wood Elves, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Diluvian Primordial, Prime Speaker Zegana, Release to the Wind, Return of the Wildspeaker, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Garruk's Uprising, Guardian Project, Unnatural Growth, and Arcane Signet.
If you are able to find more slots, I think you should consider: Hullbreaker Horror, Thryx, the Sudden Storm (dependent on count of spells with 5 cmc or more), Soothsaying, Mulldrifter, Beast Whisperer (dependent on final count of creatures), Rishkar's Expertise, Turntimber Symbiosis Flip, See the Unwritten, Balefire Dragon, Scourge of the Throne, Bane of Progress (I feel like you do not have a ton of high value artifacts or enchantments that would cause this to cripple you), Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, and Genesis Storm.

Hey, nice sea monster version.
Frantic Search and Brainstorm are helpful spells to set up Runo to transform since you'll get high CMC sea monsters in your hand. Frantic is draw two, discard a sea monster, untap three lands then tap those three lands to cast Runo. Frantic could replace Forbidden Alchemy and Brainstorm could replace Strategic Planning.
A couple of sea monster upgrades to consider:
- Hullbreaker Horror --> Lorthos, the Tidemaker
- Stormtide Leviathan --> Tromokratis
- Striped Riverwinder --> Elder Deep-Fiend
- Wonder --> Octopus Umbra
Even though you have Mirror Gallery, Lorthos and Tromokratis are legendary creatures who when copied by Krothuss don't do much since they don't have an effect when they ETB and Lorthos attack effect is not mana efficient at all with copies. Striped Riverwinder is helpful to transform Runo since it's one mana cycle to draw a card and put into your graveyard. When you control copies of Hullbreaker Horror then it can bounce all your opponents nonland permanents with Sol Ring + another 0-2 CMC mana rock by constantly cast/bounce.
Stormtide Leviathan pairs well with Krothuss since he has flying. Beatdown your opponents with 8/8 unblockable Stormtides who's ability can make it more difficult for your opponents to swingback at you. Stormtide helps Wrexial, the Risen Deep since he has islandwalk. Stormtide also pairs well with Wonder to give all creatures you control flying so they can attack. Without Stormtide Wonder is still powerful especially with Spawning Kraken since you have plenty of Islands. Wonder is nice when a strategy here is to get creatures into your graveyard.
Good luck with your deck.
