How to build with the Nadir Kraken

So, I've looked into the Theros, Beyond Death set, and was amazed by the Nadir Kraken . I love what it does, and I want to build a deck around it. How would I go about doing this? I know as much as I need to draw a lot of cards, and I need green to get extra mana probably, but what specifically should I use? A Deck List would be nice, as well as an explanation. Thanks!
You're going to probably want a Simic ramp deck with some card draw options. Growth Spiral is a great ramp card that also helps your kraken. Opt is a solid, cheap enabler. Hydroid Krasis is a solid finisher that plays well with a ramp/draw strategy.

Skullclamp isn’t legal in a lot of formats, but is absolutely nuts with the thing. Mana goes in, cards and 1/1’s come out.

Check out the most recent decks I've posted, Izzet Double Draw (Do's and Don'ts) and Temur Double Draw Rotation Proof Final build. Both do what you want to do with Nadir Kraken, but better. Much much better.
