Anyone see any modern mono blue devotion based decklists?
Probably merfolk but using Nykthos, Master of Waves and Thassa?
I'm thinking the mana from Nykthos might allow cutting of the aether vials?
Anyone want to give a try at how this deck would look?
Thassa is run as a one of in some Merfolk lists. Nykthos is unecessary, there is nothing huge to spend it on, it is hard to get to the 2 mana to activate it, and it is legendary. It can't replace Aether Vial, which allows surprise blockers, instant speed tapping and untapping with Merrow Reejery, instant speed pumps from lords, and instant speed Cursecatchers in response to an instant or sorcery. Master of Waves is okay, but it seems like overkill and it is hard to cast in Merfolk.
if you are trying to build around Modern Mono-blue devotion, I recommend checking out this thread. It is built around using Grand Architect and other blue creatures to increase devotion and take advantage of Master of Waves and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
I mean it could be fun, it wouldn't be better than blue Fish, blue fish are insane, Id recommend stepping outside of the box and trying something with blue devotion without relying on Merfolk so heavily.
