Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep Discussion

Heliogabale on Fork over your dinglehoppers

Hello! Commenting to make up for the person who did not follow the rules. ;)

Since you are already running Rogue's Passage, it could be fun to have Kukemssa Pirates as another rock-stealing ability.

If you are looking for an alternate wincon, I can see Mechanized Production being a good fin in here.

I agree with Daedalus19876 that you need more draw to keep this engine rolling, the two enchantments they suggested would be great, or Bident of Thassa as well.

I am not sure these planeswalkers are doing much for you. Mind's dilation seems greedy, a Quicksilver Amulet would go a long way helping you get these sea monsters on the battlefield before your turn so they can attack right away.

I would not run Emry in a deck that only has 10 artifacts. I would replace that and Fleet Swallower with Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep and Serpent of Yawning Depths.

Hope this helps!

libraryjoy on Requesting Suggestions for Budget EDH …

I do a lot of budget building, and there are so many possibilities. I recently did Pramikon, Sky Rampart walls/vehicles & Rosheen Meanderer Hydras. I've also done Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper, Tolsimir Wolfblood green/white multicolor, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard with elves & archers. Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain makes a fun artifact deck. Wheel & Deal with Arjun, the Shifting Flame. I've been thinking of trying a Rienne, Angel of Rebirth multicolors matters deck. Talrand, Sky Summoner spells only. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep makes a fun merfolk/sea monsters/bounce build (even built this one as a pauper deck). Lathliss, Dragon Queen makes a fun mono-colored dragon deck. I don't play black, so I don't really have suggestions that direction, except to pull up a search for legendary creatures, sort by lowest price, and see if any of them strike your fancy. Or look at a color pair on edhrec, search through for interesting commander options, and start building.

I’m unsure. I could see a build either way. There is definitely a case for the leviathan build, since you can steal manarocks from your opponents.

Either way, Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep is a potential include!

Hey king-saproling - I have Transmogrifying Licid but I'm still wondering it it will be worth the inclusion, but I may finally give it a try. Thanks for suggestions of Aphetto Alchemist and Thada Adel, Acquisitor both are indeed interesting :)

On the offhand - to add cards I first need to remove some, so, does anyone have any suggestions on what to remove from the deck? These few I think didn't play too well so far: Shambling Suit , Treasure Mage (unless I add Caged Sun I have like ONE artifact with CMC 6+), Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep (a bit too pricey with kicker, mediocre without it), Lotus Petal

The big question is, 'how competitive'.

First things, flat upgrades and options. Elvish Mystic can be another four llanowar elves, cards like Skinshifter tend to perform better than Fog Bank , Elvish Rejuvenator is usually better than borderland ranger and even Farhaven Elf is bettered by Sakura-Tribe Elder . In terms of big threats, things that can't be hit by your opponent are popular. Inkwell Leviathan , Kalonian Behemoth , Plated Crusher , Drownyard Behemoth etc. Another popular type is cards that help you stabilize- Pelakka Wurm type effects.

In terms of stratgy, focusing on mana curve will do a lot. Plan turns 1-7, and try to make sure that doing one thing flows cleanly into the next thing.

If you want to get super competitive, Arbor Elf , Utopia Sprawl and Birds of Paradise is the core of this deck style. Traditionally, it ramps into 4-5 drop threats, which are the largest spells not-cheated in modern. 1 drop turn 1, 3 drop turn two, 5 drop turn three. Thragtusk is old school with it, but there are various five drops that perform well enough, and most of it fits into the 'ponza' land destruction archetype or other ramp strategies (titan, combos, etc) when you want to go full spike.

Now for the middle roads- the fun kitchen table stuff. Leyline of Abundance offers huge payoffs for playing a lot of 1 drop mana dorks. Quest for Ula's Temple / Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep / Whelming Wave offers a cute tribal strategy, while things like Quicksilver Amulet let you cheat big stuff into play. Mirror Image / Quasiduplicate / Saheeli, Sublime Artificer / Tendershoot Dryad is a cute 'go wide' strategy which lets you mess around with Mirrorweave .

If you can think of it, theres a combination of cards that let you do it somewhere in magic- the trick is getting them to run smoothly.

MJS154 Thank you for the suggestion with Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep , but Slinn is a bit too expensive to make an impact in Modern. At its worst, it's a vanilla 8/8 for 8 that's one Path to Exile away from getting murdered, and at its best, it's an 8/8 for 10 with a worse Awoken Horror effect.

PhyrexianPreator Ashiok is a pretty great card for this deck! The only problem is that my meta runs absolutely zero graveyard-dependent decks. No Izzet Phoenix, no Dredge, not even the rare budget Reanimator/Grishoalbrand list. The other issue is that Turn 3 is a VERY important turn for this deck. Turns 1 and 2 are spent setting up Pteramander or Thing in the Ice  Flip, and sometimes setting up my draws with Serum Visions to prepare for the rest of the game. All of my Turn 3 plays are flashed in or at instant speed (besides Kira, Great Glass-Spinner -- still testing) so that I'm able to counter anything I may need to. I'll definitely try him out though if graveyard decks pick up at my LGS.

Thx for the suggestions. I especially like Devastation Tide especially for its great budget. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep gave me a few ideas for commander.

Few cards can properly mimic it, but Devastation Tide returns all non-land permanents to the hand, and is cheap for its miracle cost, and Evacuation can return all creatures including yours. There are the creatures with a similar ability like Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep for non-sea creature creatures when kicked, Aethersquall Ancient for all creatures except it, and or a conditional enemy only creature bounce through Scourge of Fleets , which relies on having a lot of islands out.

Edit- Noticed Devastation tide was recommended.
