"Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea, His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee About his shadowy sides; above him swell Huge sponges of millennial growth and height; And far away into the sickly light, From many a wondrous grot and secret cell Unnumber'd and enormous polypi Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green. There hath he lain for ages, and will lie Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep, Until the latter fire shall heat the deep; Then once by man and angels to be seen, In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die." Alfred Tennyson,The Kraken, 1830


Welcome to my Arixmethes thematic deck!

First, let's begin with the about Arixmethes and the epic fight between Thassa and Kiora to bind him to her will (published in may 2015). For some reasons the html code doesn't work properly...)
The main idea is to play a thematic kraken deck build around Arixmethes and Kiora's story and quests. It is mainly designed for a multiplayer environment.

I've already tested it several times, and even though it performed very decently, the main weakness was about removals. So one of my main goal right now is about finding the right balance between big creatures, ramp and counters/removals.


I do have 39 lands, which I think is pretty decent for a commander deck which heavily relies on ramp.

Any advice most welcome :)
