The one thing that bugs me about this card:
In what way does that lighthouse-devouring monstrosity resemble an inkwell?

Something like shroud is just one of the most important things for your finishers if they aren't the really big ones that are likely to kill your opponents in about two hits, especially if they're also artifacts.
You don't get anything from casting an expensive creature if your opponent's removal spell still works just as fine on those and only costs something between one or three mana.

@TheLionsMane: This is the thought process of every guy in a lighthouse from Magic :D
Check out the other Leviathan cards' artworks, they all have them in some way.

@RJ.693 According to the Planeswalker's guide to Alara the 'Inkwell' is a pitch-black sea in Esper, so it's not the Leviathan, but where it inhabits.

Name aside, this card makes me grateful for guys like Vedalken Engineer who can give you some colour fixing in Esper artifact ramp.

WHAT?! No drawbacks for a leviathan? No sacking 5 islands to untap it? No paying 10 mana and unsumming all my creatures to attack? No sacrificing this if I dont control any island? No islandhome? WOW!

I love how the reduced cost on this guy for being an artifact is massively, massively offset by the fact that you can't target him. What's more, why would you need to target him? Well I suppose if you're not the one controlling him and you're about to get a faceful of waterey death....

Awesome by himself, yet combos well with quite a few cards. Even if you can't give him an Island to work with, you have Trample to tear through nearly anything.

Also, the art reminds me of a specific Calvin and Hobbes strip with Calvin imagining a rather unfortunate Farmer Brown.

This is the thought process of the one guy in the Lighthouse

*Wakes up, walks out of bed*
"What's that big noise"
*Opens door, yawning*
"Big waves today"
*Opens eyes*
"Well, fu-"

I just opened two conflux boosters and this guy occupied both rare slots. It's destiny. I also have a couple of simic sky swallowers. Leviathan deck, go!

Anyway, good luck killing this thing. I'm sure people have mentioned master transmuter already.

Wonderful Tinker target. Probably better than the big man, at least right now.

Literally one of, if not my absolute, favorite card of all time!!! Love the flavor, power, effects...I think I now understand why I love Conflux...except I've gotten enough outlanders for an Outlander deck!
