Capture Sphere is the only answer to on-board threats. I would be hesitant to remove any of them. Cutting out Adventurous Impulse for Into the Story makes sense, and gets the same number of cards for the mana if I wait for the graveyard to fill up (also guaranteed to get cards).

I did some matches replacing Giant's Amulet and I was still able to win a decent number of games. I'll try swapping those back in for the Adventurous Impulse and see how it goes.

Personally I would cut down on the Adventurous Impulse and one of each Giant's Amulet and Capture Sphere for 4 Into the Story s

dpolatchek01 Adding cards is less an issue of "what would be great to go with this theme?" and more "What would I remove?" I don't plan on making this deck larger than 60 cards (already tried, and it made getting the crabs harder as expected). I did play with Teferi's Tutelage for a little while, but then it turns the deck into a card-draw deck, and I don't want to be discarding if I can avoid it; every card is useful.

Into the Story appears to be a good option as there are times when I've used all cards in hand, and am just top-decking. Though again, what would I remove to make room for this card? My first thought would be Giant's Amulet as that was a recent addition to try to protect my crabs when I've run out of mana.

Why not run other mill cards like Teferi's Tutelage and Into the Story ?

Hello again Blotterhead, I'm glad to see that my suggestions were useful!

Good job getting to mythic btw. If this deck can compete there as is, that probably speaks for itself, it's aight. You probably shouldn't change too much, but personally I started switching away from running 4 Heartless Act in other decks because I kept getting stuck with 2-3 of them in hand against Luminarch Aspirant and other stuff with counters, so instead I usually prefer running 2 Heartless Act and 2 Eliminate . It could be useful for you too since you would have other options with Drown in the Loch and Bloodchief's Thirst anyway for bigger creatures.

You could try switching an Island for a Mystic Sanctuary just so you can occasionally get back something like Drown in the Loch , which could be enough to make some people concede. It's also a much better top deck compared to any other land if you end up empty handed since you could get an Into the Story ready for next turn.

Cheers!

Making some cuts for your deck is kinda hard for me, because I do not know meta in your playgroup. What other decks are in your playgroup, your banlist, are you playing 4player EDH or 1v1s... This means some of my advices might be totally off, so keep that in mind.

OUT: Drowned Secrets and Fraying Sanity - they mill just 1 player.
Altar of Dementia - without Undead Alchemist useless, there is nothing good to sacrifice
Altar of the Brood - mills just 1 card and only when you got permaments to play
Increasing Confusion - too slow and expensive
Archive Trap - Looks fun, but when no one is searching their library, it's just dead card on your hand

IN? : Search for Azcanta  Flip - powerfull filter, and also ramps you
Ponder , Preordain , Brainstorm - just some cantrips
Windfall - I just like wheels + insane with Sphinx's Tutelage or Psychic Corrosion
Into the Story - 4 cards for 4 mana almost all the time, that is just good
Frantic Search - Loot 3 cards for free
All these card draws are also insanely good with Sphinx's Tutelage or Psychic Corrosion



In case you are interested in some of my personal insights and experiences from my personal Bruvac deck, hit me up on discord: Afflicti#1111

Hey thanks for the feedback. I will definitely find room for Into the Story though the troll cards im not so sure about as I added the white take care of their board presence.

If your running mill you gotta add Into the Story

Also Frogify , Ravenform and Ichthyomorphosis are super troll and super great for taking out threats I’m creature form.
