Nadir Kraken Discussion

suarkdivad That is one direction you could go with! I wanted something beyond combat that though, something that doesn't scream "Hi, I'm the win condition!" What fun about the Smothering Tithe/Prosperity combo is that those are both unassuming cards you'd want in the deck anyway for group hugging. Like I mentioned above, cards like Nadir Kraken, Chasm Skulker or Shabraz, the Skyshark can easily make great win conditions on their own, but I personally aimed for subtlety.

Since you're going to be drawing so many cards you could look at creatures/effects that pay off for you. Chasm Skulker, Nadir Kraken, Toothy, Imaginary Friend, or Psychosis Crawler. Looks like you're trying to win via beatdowns, so Triumph of the Hordes is always an option.

I just put together a deck of my own with Koma, Cosmos Serpent , Serpent of Yawning Depths and Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle . I also added Arcane Adaptation so everything in the deck comes out as a Kraken, Serpents, etc. Which makes Nadir Kraken all the more fun too.

I think this deck is really well-positioned to become a "draw-go" style control deck that plays instants and flash creatures on others' turns. Pteramander , Augur of Bolas , Brineborn Cutthroat , Threnody Singer , Vodalian Arcanist , Naiad of Hidden Coves , Wavebreak Hippocamp , Murmuring Mystic , and all of your instants (save for the likely too slow 4 mana ones) already fit in such an archetype to at least some extent. The horse fish is particularly insane as a card draw engine, and I'd try to get a playset of it if you can. Stacking them to draw even more cards with Nymris, Oona's Trickster , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Slitherwisp , etc. would also make Ominous Seas more viable, possibly even supplemented by draw payoffs like Chasm Skulker and Nadir Kraken .
For more generally good instants, Counterspell , Mana Leak , Countersquall , Frantic Search , AEtherize , Vapor Snag , Rewind , Cryptic Command , Opt , and Brainstorm (if you're playing with the legacy banned list) are options of varying budgets and power levels for a control deck.
The first cards I'd cut would be anything with suspend or that applies keyword ability counters. I think some amount of counter manipulation would be needed to maximize the value from such cards (with Clockspinning , Jhoira's Timebug , Paradox Haze , and Nikara, Lair Scavenger being a few things that come to mind). Then, I'd cull any sorceries or creatures that would take up all your mana on your own turn for minimal impact. Dead Revels , Frost Lynx , Alirios, Enraptured , and so on.
Sorry it took me a while to submit this after seeing the deck get posted earlier this week. Let me know if you have any questions and good luck with your build!
