multimedia on Runo stormkirk duel wielding sea monsters

1 week 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)

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!

multimedia on The Shadow over Innistrad (Runo Stromkirk EDH)

1 month ago

Hey, good start. This new Commander is really interesting and I like that there's at least two different clear ways to setup to transform him.

It's too bad you're going with a restrictive creature type theme since Baleful Strix and Tomebound Lich are quite good creatures with Krothuss, Lord of the Deep and Lich is a discard outlet for Runo/other reanimation. You're playing many nonHuman, nonMerfolk and nonKraken/Leviathan/Octopus/Serpent creatures therefore maybe make the exception for these two?

42 is a lot of creatures. Consider cutting some for some more low CMC spells to help to setup Runo by getting a 6 CMC or greater creature into your graveyard or putting one from your hand on top of your library?

Spellseeker is a very good Human especially if you get to make copies of her with Krothuss. Archetype of Imagination is a 6 CMC Human and it makes it very difficult for your opponents to block Krothuss/the attacking creature/attacking token copy of that creature; basically they're unblockable. Pair Archetype with Stormtide Leviathan.

Obsessive Stitcher is a Human, a looter for Runo and best of all a reanimation source that can be at instant speed. Archaeomancer is a Human and it can recur a reanimation spell such as Victimize or any other instant/sorcery; it's nice if you get to make copies of her with Krothuss.


Some cards to consider cutting:

  • Enlightened Maniac
  • Library Larcenist
  • Docent of Perfection
  • Voldaren Pariah
  • Shipbreaker Kraken
  • Icebreaker Kraken
  • Inga Rune-Eyes
  • Trench Behemoth
  • Wayfarer's Bauble
  • Sky Diamond
  • Nadir Kraken

Good luck with your deck.

Great commander, unfortunately he's not the first Sea-Monster Tribal commander. Here are my insights from playing Sea-Monster Tribal for many years (One of my favorite decks):

You don't have enough snow-permanents for Icebreaker Kraken. Either cut him or swap in snow lands. If you keep him in, I'd also recommend going all in and adding Dark Depths/Thespian's Stage, Marit Lage's Slumber and Replicating Ring as a strong synergy package that fit your theme. They can be game-winners.

Unless you add a lot of sac outlets or play in a heavy-sacrifice meta, Biolume Egg  Flip is a dead card in this deck as the only cards that will allow you to flip it is Living Death and Rot-Tide Gargantua.

Scourge of Fleets in my experience is often a dead card that only works if you include a heavy island-swapping package such as Quicksilver Fountain and Stormtide Leviathan. Otherwise it's mostly a token-killer and there are much cheaper token sweepers than 7cmc for that. I tried running that for a while, but found the island-shenanigans slowed the game and made the deck more annoying than fun for players.

Quest for Ula's Temple, as much as I want to love the card and it's flavor, was a huge miss in my deck with 26 sea monsters. It would often take half the game to go online, and was always removed before it did any value. I'd recommend it only if you include a heavy top-deck manipulation packages such as Scroll Rack.

I'd cut the vampire sub-theme, vampires generally don't synergize well with Sea-Monsters.

Neurok Stealthsuit is a straight upgrade to Whispersilk Cloak for protection, and I've tended to find Thassa, God of the Sea and Deepchannel Mentor have more value for unblockable utility.

Some suggested cards: Reef Worm can quickly get out of hand with Stromkirk. Bident of Thassa can put in some real work when you go wide. Kiora Bests the Sea God is instant value that Stromkirk can later take advantage of. Ominous Seas leans in to blue's draw spells and can be activated at instant speed to make some blockers when you need them. Elder Deep-Fiend is good utility. Extract from Darkness is great recursion for your big CMC monsters or for utility from your enemies graveyards. Gift of Doom is perfect protection for your commander as you can throw one of his tokens at it when it's needed.

Green does actually have wraths, but they typically lean toward the eradication of artifacts / enchantments, or creatures with flying (for some dumb reason). Back to Nature, Calming Verse, Creeping Corrosion, Essence Filter, Glyph of Reincarnation if you can set it up properly, Hush, Multani's Decree, Primeval Light, Rampage of the Clans, Reverent Silence (Honestly an overpowered card in certain groups), Seeds of Innocence, Serene Heart, Tranquil Domain, Tranquil Grove (WHAT?!), ... there's more but you get the idea.

As for creature wraths, only Whirlwind.

Also Green has MLD with Tsunami. It becomes true MLD with Stormtide Leviathan in play. And with Archetype of Imagination, you've just told the entire table to go fuck themselves.

:) Because Simic gonna Simic.

But by far, my favorite wrath is Wave of Vitriol.


Predatory Dominance

Sorcery

This spell costs less to cast for each creature you control of the chosen type.

Choose a creature type. Destroy all creatures except for the those who share the chosen type. If this spell cost or more less to cast, end the turn.


How's that?

Make another wrath that doesn't hit creatures. Any other permanent type is fine. Just leave the creatures alone.
