    Although Whales have no true synergy with sea monsters the art alone is convincing enough for me to add this. Adorable tbh

    This card is good... and also seems like it was hand-designed for good-old Tiro.


    Will happily run in Nekusar, where my bevy of wheel effects will make for many krakens.
    Oh it absolutely was, and I absolutely LOVE it!

    It’s so amazing that it costs only two mana. My sea monster deck needs lower curve cards, and what is great about many of the non-creature cards in that deck is that they’re actually low cmc, while the creatures themselves are high cmc, so it’s been balancing out!

    The fact I can cast this nearly and get krakens out of it without sacrificing it is just remarkable! The condition is a lot easier to meet than some of my other favorite gimmicks like Quest for Ula’s Temple for example.

    This is a very welcome addition to my deck that I am surprised to find came from this set! This feels like a Theros card, and I do wish it had been from Theros honestly and depicted some Theros seas. But frankly I am thrilled to have this amazing card for my Arixmethes deck. It’s going to make waves for sure.

    As time goes on, my deck continues to get more and more thematic! I remember when I first built it and could barely hold the theme together. Now it genuinely feels like a true theme with cards like this!

    Getting tired and fed up with art references to typhoons/hurricanes depicted as tornadoes, frankly. Yes, a typhoon is a vortex, but on a far larger scale. This is a water spout. Ugh. I’ve been longing for a blue card to depict a typhoon/hurricane and here we are, the moment arrives and I get handed inaccurate crap.


    as a weather dude i feel ya
    Finally a fellow meteorology person who understands.

    Frustrating inaccuracy aside, I wish this has been Kraken Typhoon or Octotyphoon or something. Making kraken or octopus tokens instead. But they stayed more true to the source material which is understandable

    My favorite card from the set thus far. Definitely getting one. I love moths and value in white is always welcome.
    Especially since many of my Theros themed cards don’t have flying so it has utility for me as well as theme

    What kind of a name is Django Wexler, sounds like a Planeswalker guy. Smile


    He's the guy that wrote the email short stories that were part of the chaos that was the War of the Spark story. They were substantially better than the actual books.
    A <snip> Would be better than those books. But Wexler did well. Glad he‘s back. I wonder who originally wrote the Theros novel? And what’s happening to it now?

    The basic lands in one Ixalan cycle have all a tiny Jace in them.

    Maybe you want to favor them as Islands.
    Yes! I do use those islands in my decks. The website probably links to a different island but I specified it on TappedOut

    not when it’s the most requested to receive one. Not when it’s demonstrated its popularity twice. Not when it’s tried and true. This is the first visit to Ikoria. It has something to prove first.!


    While I agree with the Ikoria part of that statement I can't imagine, of all of the planes of Magic, that Theros was the most requested one. I think that's your bias for the plane shining through. Considering how much influence D&D already takes from Greek myth I can imagine that for most people Theros was pretty low on their radar for a D&D sourcebook. Especially when compared to much more unique planes like Zendikar or Mirrodin or Kamigawa. Or even Dominaria which, while not necessarily unique, definitely has more clamor for it to have more lore brought to it and even opened up to become a fully fledged campaign setting.
    But the original article with the James Wyatt Interview actually stated that Theros was the most requested/popular plane for a DND book. I don’t have the link to it on my phone but that was my source for that statement.

    Huh... how about this?

    Thundering Footfalls red mana green mana
    Enchantment (R)
    Whenever you draw a card, you may reveal it. Whenever you reveal a creature card with power 4 or greater in this way, put a Foreshadow counter on Thundering Footfalls.
    Remove 8 Foreshadow Counters from Thundering Footfalls: You may put any number creature cards from your hand onto the battlefield.
    I wish sea monsters would get a simic card similar to this to supplement Quest. I love this design btw

    Marit lage it's not a kraken. it's an ancient god.
    I imagine the avatar figure we see for Marit Lage May not even be her true appearance or final form
