made better with landfall? Actually, this is a lot like Living Tsunami from Zendikar.

City of traitors + Mox = first turn 4/3 flying attacker.
So . . .
First turn - City of traitors + Chrome mox + Sea Drake
Second turn - any land + Standstill

One of a view accidentally awesome Portal cards - since barely any Portal card was made that good on purpose.

Why are you so difficult to play, Sea Drake? I even Chalice of the Void'ed for one and two, just like the blue players told me I should...

Why did he get nerfed via templating? If you unearthed him as written or you "put into play" somehow (not from your hand) then he wouldn't bounce the lands. This doesn't make him extraordinary, but still.

That said, since you target lands you can utilize fetch lands, dreamscape artist (later in the game), use him to get islands into your hand for discarding purposes, or various other uses.

Also, Zendikar lands like being bounced more. I see this working best in {U}{G} where you can get land advantage easily while avoiding the drawback. (Burgeoning is a great example)

I don't see a "or sacrifice" clause there. 5/5. Much better than Living Tsunami. Just run non-basic land and he has no drawback. 4/3 flier for 3 mana seems really good. Especially for mono-blue.

EDIT: I meant non-basic land that produce more than 1 amount of mana per tap, like Depletion land or Ancient Tomb. Combine with Sol Ring, etc... and cheese him without cost. Or sacrifice one of the two targetted lands with his ability on the stack for something like Wasteland.

Play him on turn two and bounce that Saprazzan Skerry back to your hand.
