Peoyogon on Terror of the deep

I love the theme idea!

Did you want the deck to still be somewhat focused on synergy and having some consistent win conditions or are you wanting to just focus on theme? If you are wanting the later, I love Devouring Deep and Phantom Monster, even though they are really not good.

Some others that might be cool (but aren't great) is the wormfang cycle: Wormfang Behemoth, Wormfang Crab, Wormfang Drake, Wormfang Manta, Wormfang Newt, and Wormfang Turtle. Terrible cards but awesome, terrifying art!

Also, Inkwell Leviathan is just great and I think also might fit well with the theme :)

Enticer on Millin'

I would defiantly run more Jace's Phantasm if you have them. Also, maybe cut some Assassinate. Phantom Monster is just horrible, and I would get rid of that. Maybe some more Mindcrank? I have a non-budget kinda competitive mill deck, which I would never consider buying but if you want some ideas, you can check it our here.

Unforgivn_II on Discussion: Archetypes of EMN Draft

4 years ago

I won my draft with a UG Enchantment deck, with a White splash for Balance, Mesa Enchantress and Armadillo Cloak. I had basically no removal (just one Gaseous Form), and not enough creatures as well. I felt terrible about it going in, but Ancestral Mask, Elephant Guide and Armadillo Cloak are just that good, especially when you slap them on a Phantom Monster. Jetting Glasskite was also a huge bomb, even though you can't enchant it (although I had to for lethal one game. Targeted it once, ate the counter, then used the second aura for the win). My draft was incredibly bad (the guy to my right was drafting blue), and while I do think the archetype has promise, I wouldn't recommend it.

Mahamoti Djinn and Phantom Monster, they dont really do enough to justify the mana costs.
