Stormtide Leviathan Discussion

TheBl0b on Cthulhu Fhtagn

Hello! Thank you so much for commenting and sorry for the delay of my answer!

Jackfrost23, I have been considering Hullbreaker Horror. However, since the deck does not interact during the first 3-4 turns, I really need the first sea monster I cheat into play to be either 1) Hard to deal with (Shroud, Hexproof) or 2) Have an immediate impact on the board (Stormtide Leviathan, for example, prevents my opponent from attacking). I am also considering Gyruda, Doom of Depths, Icebreaker Kraken, Rot-Tide Gargantua and Scourge of Fleets for their ETB effect. However, I feel like Hullbreaker Horror would be too slow before using its ability.

wallisface, it would indeed be a fantastic card! A question I have a hard time answering though is "How many?" and "What do I take out?" Any ideas?

Thanks! I will likely take out Slice in Twain for Return to Dust once I go threw my box of whites. Pretty sure I have another one somewhere. I left it in for now since it at least comes with a draw. Not so sure about Fecundity. Isn't that a bit of a double edged sword? I don't feel like helping others draw into an out for me. Also I just realized something yesterday during a match. I have very little to out powerful creature's with powerful ability's. I just got completely shut down by Stormtide Leviathan. Might need some more targeted destruction in here

Yeah, he is a pricy one. But there are plenty of cheap krakens and demons that are budget friendly. Like Stormtide Leviathan or Lord of the Void.

Hey, good version, nice Sakashima and Quest. You have 1 too many cards, could cut Millikin.

There's a couple of mana rock upgrades to consider that are within your budget. By cutting Charcoal Diamond and Worn Powerstone for Basalt Monolith and Everflowing Chalice then you add an infinite cast combo with Hullbreaker Horror. The combo is Hullbreaker + Sol Ring + Chalice for infinite casts/colorless mana or Hullbreaker + Monolith + Chalice for infinite casts.

Sol or Monolith make enough colorless mana to cast themselves before they're bounced and by casting Chalice for 0 mana you can bounce them resulting in infinite casts/bounce of Sol/Monolith + Chalice. By controlling two or more Hullbreakers thanks to Krothuss then the combo can bounce all your opponents nonland permanents and you can keep doing this on each of your main phases on each of your turns.

If you want to copy big Leviathans with Krothuss then consider Stormtide Leviathan + Wonder? Stormtide is one of the better unblockable Leviathans because he can also disrupt your opponents from swinging back at you. Wonder is helpful to give all creatures you control flying and you have plenty of Islands as well as effects to get it into your graveyard.

A couple of budget land upgrades are: Sunken Hollow and Choked Estuary. Creeping Tar Pit is another upgrade, it's a little more expensive, but neat because Krothuss can copy it when it's an attacking unblockable Elemental.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice sea monster version.

Frantic Search and Brainstorm are helpful spells to set up Runo to transform since you'll get high CMC sea monsters in your hand. Frantic is draw two, discard a sea monster, untap three lands then tap those three lands to cast Runo. Frantic could replace Forbidden Alchemy and Brainstorm could replace Strategic Planning.

A couple of sea monster upgrades to consider:

Even though you have Mirror Gallery, Lorthos and Tromokratis are legendary creatures who when copied by Krothuss don't do much since they don't have an effect when they ETB and Lorthos attack effect is not mana efficient at all with copies. Striped Riverwinder is helpful to transform Runo since it's one mana cycle to draw a card and put into your graveyard. When you control copies of Hullbreaker Horror then it can bounce all your opponents nonland permanents with Sol Ring + another 0-2 CMC mana rock by constantly cast/bounce.

Stormtide Leviathan pairs well with Krothuss since he has flying. Beatdown your opponents with 8/8 unblockable Stormtides who's ability can make it more difficult for your opponents to swingback at you. Stormtide helps Wrexial, the Risen Deep since he has islandwalk. Stormtide also pairs well with Wonder to give all creatures you control flying so they can attack. Without Stormtide Wonder is still powerful especially with Spawning Kraken since you have plenty of Islands. Wonder is nice when a strategy here is to get creatures into your graveyard.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Runo stormkirk duel wielding sea monsters

5 months ago

Hey, good first draft. I'm having a lot of fun with Krothuss; Runo is just along for the ride.

Your deck doesn't have a Commander. In the deck editor after Runo Stromkirk text add CMDR.

1x Runo Stromkirk (DBL) *CMDR*

When you save and return to the deck Runo will be the official Commander with it's own category and card image.


Consider cutting a few lands: Temple of the False God and some basic lands, for some more cards to help setup Runo to transform?

Hullbreaker Horror is a new Kraken who has great interaction with Krothuss. Hullbreaker + Sol Ring + Mana Crypt is infinite colorless mana by bounce/cast each of these mana rocks. Hullbreaker + Sol Ring + Mox Amber is infinite colorless mana as well as blue/black mana if you control Runo or Krothuss. If you control token copies of Hullbreaker then these combos can bounce all your opponents nonland permanents and keep doing this on your turn to lock your opponents out of having nonland permanents as well as clear the battlefield of blockers to attack.

Wonder is powerful for Kraken who don't have evasion such as Hullbreaker, Spawning Kraken, 9/9 Kraken tokens, etc. An effect to give all creatures you control flying is needed with Stormtide Leviathan. Buried Alive can get Wonder as well as two other creatures you want to reanimate or help to transform Runo.

Vile Entomber has Entomb which can be helpful with Krothuss. Vile can first support to setup Runo then when Krothuss/Vile attack make a token copy of it to get Wonder while in combat. Baleful Strix is a good Dimir creature and can be repeatable draw with Krothuss. Mutate Strix with Sea-Dasher Octopus on top for a draw engine with Krothuss.


Some upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Runo, Vampire of the Seas

Hey, nice version, but you forgot Whelming Wave?

Frantic Search is a really good enabler for Runo, by discarding a 6 CMC creature and then use the three lands you untap to cast Runo. Lim-Dul's Vault is another excellent enabler since you have a lot of life in Commander.

Reanimation helps when playing so many high CMC creatures and a low amount of lands. With Apprentice Necromancer the creature you reanimate has haste letting it attack to be copied by Krothuss the same turn you reanimate. Obsessive Stitcher is a repeatable looter and can reanimate even at instant speed on your last opponent's turn to then attack with that creature and Krothuss on your turn. Both these reanimation sources are creatures which can be helpful with Krothuss, if the battlefield is clear to attack to copy. Victimize is sac a creature, most likely a token copy, to reanimate any two creatures.

Victimize and Time Warp, etc. here go well with Archaeomancer to recur them to cast again because Archaeomancer is a creature who Krothuss can copy. Can be infinite extra turns for repeatable five mana as long as Krothuss can keep attacking and copying Archaeomancer. Baleful Strix is great to mutate with Sea-Dasher Octopus, making a 2/2 Octopus with flying, deathtouch, draw a card when it ETB and when it does combat damage to a player.

Attacking creature you want to copy with Krothuss, Spawning Kraken, 9/9 Krakens, etc. can really benefit from evasion. Wonder is nice because you can discard it and you have a lot of Islands. Archetype of Imagination is a 6 CMC creature who also makes your creatures nearly unblockable and pairs with Stormtide Leviathan. Junk Winder is a Serpent who pairs well with Spawning to tap down opponent blockers.

If interested I offer suggestions of cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.

zapyourtumor on Big Fish (Merfolk Combo)

6 months ago

Sorry about the late response; this deck looks really interesting. I like how it doesn't go all-in on the combo and sort of attacks on two axes, going wide with merfolk and going tall with leviathans.

Do you find that you have enough targets for fold? I feel like Simic Sky Swallower isn't really worth it since, even though you can hardcast it, it only costs 1-2 more mana to hardcast than combo it in and lose 2 cards. I think going up to 2 Inkwell might be better. I guess Incubation can help dig for fatties. I also like the synergy with Stormtide Leviathan stopping your opponents' creatures from attacking and allowing yours to attack unblocked. Stuff like Mosswort Bridge is also pretty cool.

Another concern I have is the curve. Tide Shaper being 1 or 2 cmc definitely helps, but I feel like you have a lot more 2 cmc cards. You could maybe lower the curve a little with Kumena's Speaker.

Corrosive Gale is some nice sideboard tech, I might try that out myself. I look forward to seeing where the deck goes!
