Hi Jackh! If building a standard merfolk deck is what you're looking for, then have a look at my list.

However, if what you're looking for is a budget merfolk deck that can be built on the cheap, then I can suggest some very fun cards.

Cold-Eyed Selkie Cursecatcher Harbinger of the Tides Kiora's Follower Master of Waves Merfolk Sovereign Merfolk Trickster Merrow Harbinger Prime Speaker Zegana Stonybrook Banneret Thada Adel, Acquisitor Vorel of the Hull Clade Wistful Selkie Spreading Seas

With some more that cost a few dollars each if you're looking to upgrade.

Lord of Atlantis Master of the Pearl Trident Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca Thrasios, Triton Hero True-Name Nemesis

I'm sure I'm missing a few obvious choices, but hopefully you'll find a use for some of these cards. In my experience, some cards you may want to drop to make room are Herald of Secret Streams, River Sneak ,and vineshaper mystic .

Some cards that aren't related to Merfolk per say, but would be beneficial to your deck are: Giant Growth, Mana Leak, Unclaimed Territory , Botanical Sanctum(much cheaper out of standard), Hinterland Harbor, Lumbering Falls, Simic Growth Chamber, Temple of Mystery, Thornwood Falls, and Yavimaya Coast.

Sorry if all of this is a lot of information or if I've listed a lot of cards out of your price range, but there are defiantly some cheap upgrades to be made.

**edit I've noticed that tappedout has some card prices listed incorrectly, so check elsewhere first if you're thinking a card is too expensive.

^^^ more lands.

Also you don't have a lot of good aura targets. Ajani's Chosen is great as a token producer and gives you the option of going wide. Card: Cephalid Constable is totally insane. Cold-Eyed Selkie is also pretty insane. Eidolon of Countless Battles get gigantic very quickly. Invisible Stalker is hexproof and unblockable, and need I say more? Kor Spiritdancer is a great draw engine and also gets very large, very quickly. Rafiq of the Many is a legendary voltron target, literally and metaphorically.

You're also missing some great enchantments and synergies. Argothian Enchantress, Herald of the Pantheon, Kestia, the Cultivator, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Propaganda, Aether Tunnel, Aqueous Form, Banishing Light, Bear Umbra, Ethereal Armor, Grasp of Fate, Mirari's Wake, Rhystic Study, Song of the Dryads, Spirit Mantle,

To truly hit the Gollum flavor I'd suggest Cold-Eyed Selkie. IMO it fits a lot better

In your maybeboard I like:

Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.

I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!

Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.

Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.

Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.

Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.

Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.

Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.

Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.

Open the Armory is another Swiftfoot Boots, very important.

Farseek is good, can pull that Island for you.

Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.

Behemoth Sledge is another (slightly worse) Loxodon Warhammer.

Simic Signet/Azorius Signet might be good for getting the as well.

Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.

I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,

Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.

Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.

More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

Sheltering Ancient really wants to meet up with your Cold-Eyed Selkie next game day.

The new rules with regards to Planeswalker damage only apply to spells and abilities. There existed a previous rule where you could redirect noncombat damage onto a Planeswalker the opponent controlled.

For combat it is still the same - you have to declare you are attacking either the player or Planeswalker with your creature. Damage done to a Planeswalker will not trigger Cold-Eyed Selkie.

I have a partner commander deck with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept. It uses a lot of 2/2 creatures that give me cards when they deal player damage. Last night i played Cold-Eyed Selkie and attacked/damaged a planeswalker. We can't figure out if i still get to draw cards with the new planeswalker rules.

So, i want to draw the cards, can i attack planeswalkers?
