MB. I guess chat was disabled or something dude. I'm new to online MTG sites. I have played Simic fish at my local FNM Standard swiss tournaments 3 times now. Keep in mind my brew of this tribe is very different than yours however I like the BUG constrictor strategy a lot. If I was to say my top two cards I know I'll keep in my main based on how good they worked for me in comparison to so many other cards I've been using.. It's easy to praise my decks super hero removal spell has been Unsummon which I now main 4 because it's that awesome. And the number two favorite card of mine in this strategy Is surprisingly the Armorcraft Judge. I only recently desided to test(online) this card in my build. The Judge worked perfectly to refill my hand and gain me that reach I despitely needed before when I would start to run out of gas. I feel so much more confident returning to my regular standard locals with my fish deck Friday. I'm actually gonna play my newest update of my build on this coming Monday night somewhere else just to make sure I won't get slaughtered like I did Friday. Check out the Armorcraft Judge as a closer, and consider main decking Unsummon in UG Build's similar to mine that is. I dont have access to as good of removal in simic colors as u do in black. But I know when Hazorit attacks and I put him back in there hand it make's me smile at least. lol I deal with the uncounterable hexproof tyrant by side boarding in a two drop instant spell simular to that UR-thermo\thing's bounce spell called Unsubstantiate. The one I use is not as good because you can only bounce a spell on the stack but IMO I prefer it to the higher cmc one Commit / Memory most others use. I use the top half of Failure / Comply. I'd say one last thing on my frustating configuration with Ixalan fish.lol To many other's playing UG merfolk tribal the card's impact is probably so obvious. I'm embarrassed to admit this but after casting it so much only to watch it get killed before my next turn I lost sight of the value of the shapeshifter lord.. even if the first copy only eats a removal spell like shock, push, strike stomp.. ect unfortunately I now must obtain my copies of Metallic Mimic again because without any it my fish deck was so much less effective. that lesson I learned the hard way this past FNM. not sure if the black blue green fish build uses it since it relys on a simular impact on board state by the constrictor at the two slot. if u ever use the mimic be sure u keep urs broseph. Pepsiwilliam you have fun and message me anytime bro. add me if u want. Metallic Mimic makes the less powerful merfolk powerful. I traded mine to help me finance buying other cards I needed for my brew.. this past Friday I tried it without any and it was awful dude.lol click on my name if u wanna see mine dude.. its something like (you could always use Gilly-Weed.) k later

Yeah, those will work. If you do put in Tishana, who I see is in the nebulous maybe-land right now, I recommend you also put in a couple more card draw effects; There's nothing worse than Tishana just dropping dead because you didn't draw Armorcraft Judge in time.

To help with card draw, you could include Inspiring Call, Grapple with the Past and possibly Ghirapur Orrery (it does benefit your opponents symmetrically, but your deck would probably use it most effectively). There are also many creatures that draw you cards relative to +1/+1 counters: Armorcraft Judge,Prime Speaker Zegana, Fathom Mage to name a few.
I am working on a similar build, Atraxa Lands deck (EDH), which started as a Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper deck but needed access to more colors to better utilize Awaken cards and man-lands. There are certainly more options to choose from in 4 colors. Thanks for sharing your deck!

For the budget-friendly thing you've got going, Surrak is pretty good. He supports any Temur build, but he fails to push it any specific direction (besides maybe just good stuff?). I used to have a Surrak deck myself, but eventually switched him out for Maelstrom Wanderer since I like Enter-the-BF effects a lot and random/chaos plays.

Funkydiscogod I can see Hardened Scales being somewhat cool to use. I'd have to try it out. What would I take out, though?. It'd have to be a creature. Maybe Armorcraft Judge since I already have Glint-Sleeve Siphoner for card advantage?. Or backwards?
Gonti's Machinations I've tried it but it doesn't feel that great. However, I can see that combo also working out really nicely if I'm playing against control which could make it hard for my creatures to resolve and therefore lose a lot of value from the +1/+1 counters.
I think the Arcbounds sound like a cool addition against removal-heavy matchups. But I don't see them having much synergy with cards like Cub, Ridgescale or anything else. Maybe take out Aquastrand Spider & Crowned Ceratok for those in the sideboard?

I really like the deck. It seems like this would be extremely satisfying to play.
I am not really experienced with this color group, but it seems like one extremely useful option might be Roon of the Hidden Realm, which would allow you to temporarily remove enemy threats and also get an extra "enters the battlefield" use with Primeval Protector, Coiling Oracle, Deepglow Skate, Armorcraft Judge, Custodi Soulbinders, Prime Speaker Zegana or Elite Scaleguard every turn (which also triggers Cathars' Crusade). Furthermore, it can protect your commander any time it is threatened. I might even include Flickerform for the same reason.
