Release the Kraken!
Posted By: jetzine (2/3/2010 5:04:02 PM)


What about running this in a deck with only a dozen lands, some ponder, some 1 drop blockers and fill the rest of the deck out with giant kraken/octopus etc.

-You could mulligan till you get this with 1 land and drop it turn 1.
-Almost for sure get a counter per turn since 80% of ur deck is creatures.
-drop ur blockers to stay alive until turn 4
-turn 4 begin dropping insane monsters

May require a little luck but not much. Is this plausable?

This is one of my favourite cards ever. I'm gonna make an octopus Leviathan Kraken and serpent deck now ^^

this is a blue control players wet dream, use spell like creatures to massage your deck, and then have this thing get your big dorks to kill thinks fast... it is the merger between agro speed and control sensibilities

I played someone who drafted both this and Wrexial, the Risen Deep at the pre-release. Ouch.

Very flavorful. I like it a lot.

Grozoth is crying in the $1 bin at stores around the world ; Inkwell Leviathan is right there in the $2 bin being the shoulder it is crying on.

Between the new Jace, Halimar Depths, Brainstorm itself and Ponder, getting the quest counters on this thing isn't that hard.

Lorthos, the Tidemaker is also happy to see this thing.

Dropping 8-9 CMC bombs on turn 3 isn't something to overlook. It's just REALLY sad that cards like Maelstrom Pulse and the lesser-played Qasali Pridemage will kill this dead. It also doesn't help that this deck really needs Grozoth, who's from Ravnica and therefore isn't in Standard. Still, this is a mean, mean card to make a deck off of for fun.

@ Khias: I prefer some 7th Edition Giant Octopus, myself, but that's a pretty sweet play, too.
