Krasis is a card worth building around, but I think you want a more robust ramp strategy to go along with midrange with Incubation Druid , Growth Spiral , Gift of Paradise to fuel it. Climb could fit into this shell because of it's interaction with Incubation. I also really like the explore package: Branchwalker, Jadelight and Wildgrowth Walker with Krasis, Guardian and Zegana. Explore helps to have lands in your hand and is busted with Wildgrowth for life gain. Wildgrowth with explore would help to be able to play Krasis in an aggro meta. I like the interaction of Wildgrowth with Zegana and Climb because Wildgrowth can get really big with counters, giving it trample and/or flying makes it a huge threat.

Blink of an Eye seems good with Krasis after attacking for the turn bounce Krasis and then cast it again to draw more cards and gain more life. Find / Finality , especially Find is great with the explore package and is also a way to recur Krasis. Having ways to get a Krasis back into your hand is good because the power is in it's cast trigger.

Thanks for taking the time to reply and clarify Etratas ability Stefouch

I've tried this again on Arena when I had Blink of an Eye , Unexplained Disappearance and Rescue in hand and it would not let me play any of these to bounce Etrata back. I'll submit a bug report about this

Disrupting Shoal can be very efficient, but I didn't add it to my deck for two simples reason : First, I tried to build a affordable deck and the cost of this card is almost 10 bucks. Secondly, the average CMC of the deck is pretty low, I'm afraid that Disrupting Shoal wouldn't be enough against big spell. You right for Favorable Winds, I already added it to my sideboard.

Like I said in my description, Vapor Snag can be a tiny plus to "peel" you opponent. Obviously, this 1HP damage is quite irrelevent and can be a pain if it's self-inflicted. I'll edit my description to add Unsummon for people who doesn't want this 1 extra damage.

I don't know if it's worth splashing this deck with green because there are not lot of fearies card in green. I think merfolk are more compatible. But If you want to try, you'll need to readapt the deck with these cards Groundling Pouncer, Shorecrasher Mimic or Slippery Bogle, for example.

It's been a while I didn't actualize this deck. You are perfectly right, this brand new card can be very good. I'll add Blink of an Eye to the deck and put Boomerang to the sideboard. Boomerang still be effective if your opponent plays a lands oriented deck.

Yes ! I always forget graveyard managment. In my opinion, the two cards are relevent. Tormod's Crypt is cheaper (in mana and real money) but Relic of Progenitus can be useful too. I'll add Tormod's Crypt in the sideboard and Relic of Progenitus in the mayboard because of its cost.

Have you considered Blink of an Eye instead of Expel from Orazca? If you have enough mana, you can not only bounce an annoying nonland permanent to its owner's hand but also draw a card, giving you a one card advantage, which IMO is better than giving your opponent a one card disadvantage.

Cool, easy improvements:

73 cards mainboard as is.

Step 1: Sideboard out all of the negates but one (70 cards mainboard, 3 sideboard)

Step 2: Remove all copies of Tezzeret, Cruel Machinist, Sigiled Sword of Valeron, Drowned Secrets, Sinister Sabotage, Cancel, Timestream Navigator, Opt, and Omnispell Adept (56 cards mainboard, 3 sideboard)

Step 3: Sideboard out Selective Snare, The Immortal Sun, Amulet of Safekeeping, Essence Scatter, and Spell Pierce, (49 cards mainboard, 9 sideboard)

Step 4: Add in 2 copies of Wizard's Retort, 3 copies of Merfolk Trickster, 3 copy of Warkite Marauder, 3 copies of Curious Obsession, 2 copies of Exclusion Mage. (62 cards mainboard, 9 sideboard)

Step 5: Drop 2 Islands, add in 3 copies of Blink of an Eye, and 3 copies of Dive Down to the sideboard. (60 cards mainboard, 15 sideboard)

That will make this deck a standard powerhouse (well about as much of one as mono-blue tempo is right now!)

TCG prices estimate these will total cost $25.42 and will make it a fully meta deck! Full sideboard included ;)
