Thassa Brawl Strategy
Thassa Brawl deck is bit tricky to build, as a mono blue deck. We wanted to have enough:
- creatures that synergize with Thassa
- powerful cards
- utility lands
To optimally use Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, we need creatures with enter-the-battlefield effects. We can then blink them with Thassa to get their effect again. Blinking (or flickering) is Magic slang for exiling a creature and immediately returning it back.
We have 15 creatures with enter the battlefield effect. But there is one that’s just better than all the others.
Thassa + Agent of Treachery Combo
Thassa’s best friend is surely Agent of Treachery. You play him, steal your opponent’s best permanent and at the end of turn, you blink him with Thassa, steal another thing. Once you do this, you usually just win the game on the spot.
Sadly, you can have only one copy of Agent, but Meteor Golem can also do some work. Some other great creatures to blink with Thassa are:
Powerful Blue Cards
We’re playing some very strong cards for Brawl. We particularly like Kiora Bests the Sea God.
If you can survive until second chapter, you’ll win the game easily. Of course, 8/8 hexproof Kraken will help you survive for a turn.
When you really want your opponent’s stuff, Mass Manipulation is here to help you. This spell fits perfectly in a blue Brawl deck and is a real powerhouse.
Finale of Revelation and Gadwick, the Wizened will make sure that you’ll never run out of cards. You don’t need to worry about drawing too many of them, since you have two alternate win conditions in Thassa’s Oracle and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.
As you can see we’re playing a lot of expensive cards. That’s why we need some ramp cards, so we can play them earlier.
Using Your Lands
Since we’re playing a mono-colored deck, we can afford to play more utility lands. That’s why we have 8 of them, including two that also provide blue:
- Mobilized District
- Labyrinth of Skophos
- Field of Ruin
- Castle Vantress
- Mystic Sanctuary
- Blast Zone
- Cryptic Caves
- Emergence Zone
Our mana base includes 17 Islands which gives us 25 lands total, which is a good number for a deck that wants to cast Thassa on turn 4 consistently.
