Nadir Kraken Discussion
1 month ago
Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it! So far I like the seamonsters a lot although they are kinda on the more casual side of decks due to their high cmc. They surely can pack a punch, but some of them are just mediocre for sure.
I totally agree on the Kederekt Leviathan. It first it looked cool due to his ability to reanimate himself but he's kind of a nonbo with Krothuss and felt awkward when in hand nearly every time. I wanted to switch him vor Deep-Sea Kraken, which I unfortunately didn't have at the time I started building. Nadir Kraken was mainly included because of flavor reasons I have to admit and is one of the first things I consider for further cuts! Who knows, if I feel the deck lacks power, I might drop the bigger part of the seamonstres and try some goodstuff instead, which is the stronger route imho but feels way less cool :D
The Vile Entomber is a pretty neat suggestion! I will definitely give him a shot.

Hey, thanks for the upvote at my Krothuss deck :)
How are you liking the heavy sea monster theme? Heartless Summoning is really neat tech. I started with this kind of theme, but switched quickly because I found that Spawning, Hullbreaker, Winder and Yawning are far away better than all other 6 CMC plus sea monsters. Playing others felt not needed compared to lots of other cards I could be playing, essentially more support.
Since you're playing lots of high CMC creatures consider expanding on enablers for reanimation?
Obsessive Stitcher is first a looter then it can reanimate at instant speed which is important to be able to attack with the creature you reanimate for attacking Krothuss to copy. Stitcher and Entomber both survive Heartless. Vile Entomber is a creature who Krothuss can copy. It's deathtouch lets it basically freely attack and having a repeatable Entomb effect is very good for reanimation and Wonder. The first time it attacks to be copied simply get Wonder while in combat.
Now that there's Hullbreaker combo I don't think Kederekt Leviathan is needed since it wrecks you too. Bouncing Krothuss and all tokens seems counter productive when there's many other effects to tap down or bounce permanents that only affect opponents.
Obsessive Stitcher can do more for Runo as well as Krothuss then Nadir Kraken. Nadir is fine because it's a Kraken, but do you really need it's effects? Creating 1/1 Tentacle tokens doesn't seem that good and has negative interaction with Heartless. If Tentacles triggered Spawning then that's a reason to play Nadir, but they don't. I also don't like that any counters that are on Nadir aren't copied when Krothuss makes token copies of Nadir.
Good luck with your deck.

Just a few suggestions

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.
