Solid deck. I see you have a very strong sb against rg aggro. I'm not convinced about your match up vs rdw, however master of the waves should help with this. Most the removal is red atm so I think you can even justify main decking him. Deck seem's perfect for him, can cause total blow outs with trident. If you can get your rdw and rg match up good, it appears to me you already have a solid deck for beating control.

Also I would not view Shipwreck Singer as a 2 drop, I agree its a pretty good card. But your not playing it for its stats but rather its abilities. So view it as one of your long game cards.

well i play him also as another 2cc creature that allows thessa to be creature on turn 4 Smile
+ abilities are good, yes, but costs mana that is needed for creatures/counters...
atm testing duskmatnle seer instead of demon and it looks promising:)

Could you provide more info with your deck for us? Like why did you choose judge's familiar as a 1 drop, etc. Just more details on some choices as this is a new breed of archtype. Smile

I mean from a standpoint of your curve it should not be viewed as a 2 drop, as sort of like sign in blood, it does not have any real impact on the game when you play it.

No master of waves? Seems the only reason to try U aggro, else it becomes a worse RG/GW.
I would cut 1 thassa and 2 demons to make space for at least 3 copies.

Bident of thassa feels like win-more. Doesn't refill your hand if you're behind, it works only if you already have a board and can attack your opponent.
Try Jace architect of thought.

Find space for Thoughtseize SB.
It's your only hope to beat supreme verdict decks.
