Nadir Kraken Discussion

Porkules Thanks for some great advise. I really like Verity Circle for this. I'll find some space for that. The main reason I am running Cloudkin Seer is so Thassa can pick him up and set him down each turn to draw a card and trigger Nadir Kraken/ Otherwise I don't like it much either. I am open to any suggestions for blue creatures with ETB effects that might be better, but I prefer a creature to Omen of the Sea

This is probably the first mono-blue deck I've ever made. This is mostly for casual play in paper, but it is going to be playing against a few strong decks and I don't want it to get blown out.

Howdy folks.

I've been trying to build a deck around the card Angelic Exaltation for a few days now. Originally I was trying to pair it with Azorius Knight-Arbiter &/or Nadir Kraken, but it turned out to be way to slow to get any momentum.

I was perusing cards in my collection & realised Boros could work out quite nicely instead... Angelic Exaltation + Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin have great synergy together. Then add Divine Visitation to the mix, & the board state could really start to snowball out of control. :D

Outlaws' Merriment produces 1 token every turn, which again seems to work well with Angelic Exaltation & Divine Visitation.

So I've put together a deck. Here's what I come up with so far...

Boros Exaltation

^^ Currently the deck is pretty janky. Perhaps the deck will be janky by nature, but I feel it could be a lot better & that it has way more potential. I would really appreciate peoples feedback & suggestions to help iron out the creases... Whats cards should I cut or include?

UnforrmedBeast on Ashiok Control I need your help!

So thinking about what you said and i'd like to go full control. Perhaps add in Murderous Rider and add some black kill spells. Drop the Nadir Kraken and Ashiok, Dream Render, perhaps jace as well. Add in Anticipate for draw. Remove Drowned Secrets as well. Perhaps for Ashiok's Erasure? What do you think?

I would add Overwhelmed Apprentice and Wall of Lost Thoughts as they both synergize with Thassa's flicker ability. I would cut the Nadir Kraken, it doesn't help the mill plan and you need to focus on milling since you have no way to prolong your game.

I really love what you have going on with this deck! When the new Secret Lair got released, I decided it was time to give a bit of EDH control a try. I used to have a casual deck built around Venser, the Sojourner and the splicers to generate creatures and figured the flicker mechanic might make for a fun deck.

Right now my decklist is running a moderate amount of counterspells, but after seeing yours, I'm thinking of cutting them in favor for more powerful ETB effects and to help cut down on the card count.

Not sure if you considered it and already cut it or not, but Vedalken Orrery is a great card for the "play on other people's turns" strategy. In addition to Nadir Kraken to reliably hit your Ephara triggers on everyone's turns, you could also look at Dawn of Hope and Luminarch Ascension. You can get some good mana ramp, especially with the flicker theme, with Knight of the White Orchid, which can pull Hallowed Fountain and Prairie Stream for mana fixing if needed.

Hope some of the suggestions help!
