Wow Orvar...just wow. Ignoring the fact that it easily goes infinite with Naru Meha, Master Wizard or Peregrine Drake & Co shenanigans, this card is extremely versatile. The fact that Orvar's ability can target lands is disgusting. I want to like this card because it seems like an interesting design, but I just know this thing will be oppressive when folks vomit out 10+ copies of Tidespout Tyrant or Agent of Treachery or just Scourge of Fleets every turn.

Apologize in advance if you've already answered this/considered this.

The previous version of this deck utilized Mystic Forge/Sensei's Divining Top. You cut this since you have to cut Etherium Sculptor to enable the Tidespout Tyrant line.

Have you considered doing the Mystic Forge line with a noncreature cost reducer, like Cloud Key or Semblance Anvil? You could do this while keeping the Tidespout Tyrant line. I realize at 3cmc they are more costly than Etherium Sculptor, but not by that much. And while you risk getting two for oned with Semblance Anvil a cost reduction is powerful (though maybe not necessary for your deck).

Is this too expensive/clunky/slow for cEDH? Thoughts?

...drop all the landfall triggers...

...you should be counting power or developing draw before your board snowballs, not after...

-1 Tishana, Voice of Thunder... (this is better in a token deck).

-1 Thought Reflection...slow!

-1 The Magic Mirror...slow!!

-1 Mind Unbound...slow!!!

-1 Irencrag Pyromancer... only good if u can consistently draw-on-demand.Mi

-1 Argentum Armor... slow.

-1 As Foretold... slow! (remember when I was waiting to suspend for 4 turns on turn 3?)

Thanks for your comment abby315! Great points. Your deck looks awesome too!

I took your advice and added Grave Titan to the sideboard, moved Ashen Rider to the sideboard, and added Tidespout Tyrant to the mainboard. It just dawned on me how amazing Griselbrand, Tidespout Tyrant, and Sire Of Insanity are together. Big G draws you cards, you play spells to return permanents to your opponent’s hand with the Tyrant, and the Sire discards those cards during your End Step...Big G draws you more cards, repeat! Brutal!

Nice! Love to see another RB-based reanimator player. My list is here: NEED 4 T1 GRISELBRAND

I run the version that just runs a Bayou to cast Reverent Silence for free, but I know the Wear / Tear version is just as viable, so up to you. I will definitely say I recommend the heck out of a Grave Titan in the sideboard. It's a very good option for when you need to play a fairer game post-board because it's pretty easy to hardcast. I also prefer Tidespout Tyrant mainboard over Ashen Rider because it's far more flexible. Just as good against UB reanimator and Sneak&Show, but also fair game against Death and Taxes, Delver, and most other strategies tbh. You lose the ability to hardcast, but I think it more than makes up for it. The games you have to hardcast something are definitely not in your favor anyway!

Good choice of commander for a sea monsters deck. I have an Urza sea monsters deck, trying to use Urza's ability to tap artifacts for blue mana to ramp hard into those big blue beauties. It still ends up playing like an Urza artifact shenanigans deck though, because it's Urza..

So my next move is to make it an Arithmexes deck instead! The inclusion of green for its ramp should make it playable. I think that you should consider Circuitous Route, Nyxbloom Ancient, Explosive Vegetation, and Frontier Siege. This last one only produces green mana but holy god does it produce mana. Two green on EACH main phase, and those blue beauties need a lot of any color mana regardless.

Temur Sabertooth can save as many critters from board wipes as you have the mana for, as well as itself. Breaching Leviathan is nasty. Tidespout Tyrant is not a fish but is definitely a blue sea monster and does work. I love the inclusion of Tale's End. So unexpected and great for dealing with those obnoxious sac engine decks. Similar to Soul's Majesty, Return of the Wildspeaker will draw a ton of cards in a deck like this and has the added upside of being used as a finisher.

I also love the various umbras, generally, for commander decks. Eel Umbra has flash and will unexpectedly save one of your fish from removal, and Bear Umbra will do work in any green deck. Lastly, Capsize in a deck like this is great fun, and flavorful, but can produce saltiness when bought back repeatedly.

If you are interested, this is my Urza deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/urza-old-man-of-the-sea/?cb=1593614404

It has a strong draw package.

Deck looks awesome +1 from me! Name def drew me in too

I like some of the tutors you're running. Somewhat a different suite from my animar deck. I forget that Neoform and Eldritch Evolution exist haha

I'd suggest Tidespout Tyrant for redundancy with Cloudstone Curio. The triple blue is scary but I run it in two decks and it puts in work. Temur Sabertooth too. Fabricate might be worth it to snag a few of your wincons. Birthing Pod goes with your sac tutors

Not sure what to take out. I love eldrazi. Oblivion Sower is my favorite w Animar. Cultivator Drone might be your most mehh. Collector Ouphe hurts a few of your things. I assume you see a lot of countermagic with Prowling Serpopard in the list(?)

Anywho, have fun! Please check out my Animar deck and tell me what you think! Peace!
