    Re: [Deck] Merfolk

    This new Merfolk is clearly designed to go in the Standard or Modern UG Merfolk decks that play cards like Deeproot Elite, Jade Bearer, and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. It doesn't make sense to me why it would go in a mono U shell. So the only question is, would the upgrade to the UG shell be adaptable to be Legacy-playable?

    I am going to be testing Ben in legacy, basically removing snuggles from the deck. just to check it out for science.

    How did it go? I like the card but I wish they had printed some mono blue fish that explored, or like a 1 drop blue who explored if another merfolk was played.

    Fish is back on the menu boys!

    m_boy and then medvedev won the PTQ and then came in 6th at the challenge recently with the same lists. Feature 4x Tricksters and 2x Harbinger, surprisingly no Force of Negations or Waterlogged Groves.

    Looks like everyone decided Delver and Dark Depths are the decks to play so loading up on the tap down and bounces makes sense.

    My question is: what card is better in the current meta? Merfolk trickster or harbinger of the tides?

    Trickster easily, not being restricted to the creature being tapped and unconditional flash make it much stronger.

    Yeah, it's true but against a 20/20 tap it is not so much... bouncing marit lage with harbinger mean destroy it... also against delve creature bounce is much better than tap it... and return delver in hand means gain more than one turn...

    Re: [Deck] Merfolk

    I am testing "brazen borrower", i know it is not a merfolk, but i think is a greate card: we can play 4 copy of bounce spell for remove silver bullet like ensnaring bridge, humility and similar without the afraid of remove from deck list too many creature and in this metagame the card is fantastic... remove fast 20/20 combo and block a second marit lage if necessary, bounce delver and/or block it and bounce a sword of fire and ice or jitte make huge tempo advantage

    I like it, let us know how testing goes. The part of Echoing Truth to return multiple of the same card seems to come up a lot (monk tokens) but being stapled to a flyer might be enough.

    Unsettled Mariner
    Protects you *and all* your permanents (not just Merfolk)
    Protects against spells *and* abilities
    Itís a 2-mana Merfolk
    The ability stacks in multiples

    Works against:
    Discard
    Spot removal
    Wasteland
    PW activations

    Especially slows the opponent down if theyíre trying to use repeated activations/spells ó like Porting you over many turns, grinding with Punishing Fire, unloading multiple counters at once from a Ballista or Jitte.

    Works well against storm: If someone wants to Tendrils or Brain Freeze you, they have to pay for every copy.

    I donít know what current lists are, so I donít know what to cut or if the white splash is worth it. Countersliver uses this, though.

    Edit: Donít try to Vial this into play in response to StP, though, since it doesnít work like Crystalline Sliver.

    Edit2: UW Lurrus Merfolk, cut TNN?

    *hullbreacher: a fantastic 3/2 flash merfolk that make impossibile opponent extra draw.
    *a new version with chrome mox and the new dual card land/spell that can be played as a Land or pitched with force of will/negation or used with chrome mox
    https://www.mtgtop8.com/event?e=28407&d=424726&f=LE

    Talk about a gamble with that combo. People run 4 FOW, 2 Negation, 4 dazes. While we have 4 FOW.

    it would be better in the SB to catch non-blue decks by surprise or when people side out counters against merfolk

    I also think that the combo funzion better as a B plan in sideboard against deck like death&taxes, goblin or elves that we can not beat with the usual aggro plan but the combo use 8 slots so i am thinking: what do you think about using thassa oracle in the main and in side put online the 4 copy of the self-mill spell?

    From the spoiler thread:

    This is really good with anything that makes a bunch of tokens on etb. Reddit comments pointed out that master of waves fits the bill nicely. As I believe token copies contribute to devotion, this plus 2 devotion plus master of waves is 4 masters plus 18 elementals for a total of 98 power.

    edit: with 0 devotion it is 10 power over 4 bodies, and 1 devotion it is 38 power over 11 bodies. Thatís still probably good enough to win.

    I see this card used in a more offensive manner.
