Merfolk is always a potent tribe, but I do see some incongruous elements that ought to be obviated.

For the basics of a deck, I have some recommendations as for what may be excluded.

Storm the Citadel is a fine card, but it's restrictive and must be done on your turn, with a board state. Removal is best when it can be used both if you're ahead or behind in the game.

Transguild Promenade and Gateway Plaza is a land with a casting cost. I'd recommend some basics in their place.

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner only draws cards off of six creatures in the deck, and thence doesn't bolster much. Lords help, but card draw is more applicable when it's not dependent on your board-state. Curious Obsession falls unto the same category.

Spark Double is quite restrictive that doesn't do much on its own. Cloning the commander doesn't do much, either, so a worthy target isn't always available.

I'm not quite sure why Clear the Mind is in here.

Geode Golem doesn't actually cheat the cost of the commander by too much, so perhaps it doesn't merit inclusion.

Tidal Flats is a card selcouth to me, and I don't quite understand its purpose. It can mess up blockers, sometimes. The opponent needs to have no open mana, otherwise, it's useless. That's very easy to play around and I'd prefer just a kill spell.

Heraldic Banner , Simic Locket , and other three mana ramp options are a bit slow to really provide ramp. Talisman of Curiosity , Mind Stone , and Rampant Growth do the same for less.

You have an awful lot of lands in here. A deck-building strategy I adhere to is fewer lands in place of draw spells. They have more utility late-game and can still find lands if need-be.

As for the theme of the deck, I have some potential implementations.

Kiora's Follower is an on-tribe creature that synergizes with the strategy, and ramps. Only great. :)

Stonybrook Banneret spells itself out.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is a fun card that people will always murder on the spot. Though, stealing a player's Sol Ring feels great.

Coastal Piracy and Bident of Thassa are similar to Seafloor Oracle , and more effects like that are always nice. Kindred Discovery is an enhanced version, too.

Animation Module is a fun option that could supply some benefit at a cheap cost, and Hardened Scales does the same thing.

Cytoplast Manipulator is a splendid option for your counters theme.

As for removal, Reality Shift , Krosan Grip , Pongify , Beast Within , Rapid Hybridization , Kenrith's Transformation , Incubation / Incongruity , and Imprisoned in the Moon . Kill spells that strand a commander on the battlefield are always annoying to deal with.

Cantrips! Impulse and Supreme Will fill the role rather well.

Seahunter , Forerunner of the Heralds , and Merrow Harbinger work wonderfully as tutors.

At last, Vigean Graftmage seems perfect.

Alas, welcome to the format, and may you slaughter the opposition with your irriguous fiends. :D

I do have my own list if you wish to peer upon it: The River Anew

I really like the idea of the deck.

I like the idea of playing Shimmer of Possibility to search for cards and Clear the Mind to shuffle your graveyard back into your library.

Into the Story is just super expensive to cast and does very little for this deck.

I would play multiple Ashiok, Dream Render s and try to use his -1 ability every turn. They will hopefully be recycled from your graveyard back into your library to be re-played at a later stage.

My version of this deck would be something like Mono Blue Mill copy M

Murphy77: I have two one-drop blockers in the form of Eye Collector and Merfolk Secretkeeper . Thought they don't have deathtouch, these cards help mill.

Connive / Concoct reanimates Syr Konrad, the Grim in case he gets milled.

Clear the Mind has the highest potential of being added in if I decide to get rid of Kaya's Wrath .

A good early chump-blocker for this deck like Vampire of the Dire Moon might help you get established.

Although Narcomoeba does provide a back-stop to help always keep a creature on the field, I rather like Clear the Mind to recycle your own graveyard back into your library.

Have you considered something like Thief of Sanity over Connive / Concoct ?

Kaya's Wrath just seems like you are admitting defeat - kill all your own best creatures for a possible extra turn of play. I would tend to go with something like Aid the Fallen to support your Forever Young and this would simplify your lands.

I also really like the idea of playing Venture Deeper (the Merfolk Secretkeeper adventure), summoning Merfolk Secretkeeper then playing Unsummon to bring the card back to your hand to start the cycle again. Clear the Mind could then recycle earlier copies of itself and Unsummon to your library. The combination seems like it could be a whole lot of fun to play - feeding Drowned Secrets with mill triggers, but this complex combo will, unfortunately, tend to play out just a bit too slowly. Any ideas on how to build this sub-theme into something more substantial?

Why not a Clear the Mind ?

Thanks! I added Clear the Mind because because I ended up milling myself a few times with Guild Summit . I see What you mean about the ramp though. The list is currently only 57 cards so I can just add a Hydroid Krasis and 2 Growth Spiral . Any other ideas?

Okay, personally I'm not sure why you're running Divine Visitation like you don't have nearly enough token makers or ramp to make it even close to worthwhile. Also, I would definitely add some basics not only to be able to more effectively make but to have more land types for Field of the Dead . Also, not really sure about that one Clear the Mind That should definitely be an additional Growth Spiral . So overall I guess cut Divine Visitation s for 2 more Guild Summit s and 2 more Growth Spiral s and cut that Clear the Mind for like a Hydroid Krasis
