As far as cuts, the cards I have my eye on are Forgotten Creation , Izzet Keyrune , Sphinx's Tutelage , Deepfathom Skulker , Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift , AEther Membrane , Mask of Avacyn , Faithless Looting , and perhaps two or three of the "discard hand, draw that many"--particularly expensive ones. I like Jace's Archivist for being repeatable.

I know you probably want to keep non-artifact count low to get as many thopters as possible but Windreader Sphinx , Deepfathom Skulker and Coastal Piracy could draw you a ton of cards with some thopters flying around. Also Junkyo Bell or Day of the Dragons could turn your little 1/1's into a lot of damage.

Sorry for the semi-late replies.

Thanks for the ideas! I love this Deepfathom Skulker !

tpmains

Endless One is a great idea. He may just be a dumb beater, but sometimes with something like Breaker of Armies , it should be a blast!

I really like that From Beyond + All Is Dust combo. That's gross!

griffstick:

Spawnsire of Ulamog seems amazing, especially since we as a playgroup allow wish cards.

ScionsStillLive

I'd love Dread Defiler , but I'm sadly Simic colors. I do however love Eldrazi Mimic and Endbringer ! Endbringer's a neat card I've never seen.


Thanks everyone for the help!

Desolation Twin isn’t bad since it makes two really big bodies.

Deepfathom Skulker could also be good for some card draw and a rogue’s passage like effect.

Right off the bat, 3.14 Average CMC is high for a deck like Merfolk, your curve looks good, just try to add more 2 drops, even if it's just ramp sources Fellwar Stone Mind Stone Coldsteel Heart Sapphire Medallion Emerald Medallion Farseek Nature's Lore Rampant Growth , etc.

Even without extra land draws, a turn 1 Exploration is amazing (but $$$), but there's no better feeling than a T1 Green Sun's Zenith for 0 to fetch Dryad Arbor .

Song of Freyalise could be fun

Overwhelming Stampede seems low power in a deck that doesn't have any huge beaters, Behemoth and Forerunners seems unnecessary when you could run a tutor in place of one. (Also Avenger of Zendikar plays really well with either).

Herald's Horn plays really well with Sylvan Library which also plays well with Descendants' Path

If you're on the market for other counterspells, Dispel Negate Arcane Denial and Disdainful Stroke are great in commander. And Pact of Negation is a commander All-Star if you afford it.

Force of Vigor has been performing amazingly in all my testing if you're interested in it.

Path of Discovery seems.. less than synergistic with no graveyard play.

Deepfathom Skulker or Edric, Spymaster of Trest would both feel right at home

For tutors, I think the most interesting options would be Chord of Calling Shared Summons (New card) Tooth and Nail and ofc, Green Sun's Zenith (T1 Dryad Arbor!)

How about Airborne Aid ? It can easily be a draw 3, and with good timing even more. Also, with birds, any Piracy effect is great, for example Deepfathom Skulker or Bident of Thassa .

Bident of Thassa gives you themed, constant, powerful card draw. It can be very useful. If you want to go deeper into that, there is also Deepfathom Skulker . Deepfathom is more mana-intensive, but still useful and can get things through.

One of the best cards for this strategy is Thrummingbird . It has flying and proliferates. (Basically infect in this deck).

A good land would be Rogue's Passage . It gives your creatures unblockable, and its opportunity cost is fairly low.

You can link your deck with either the deck link or like this:

[deck-large: dominus-dreamcrusher-edition]

replace the single brackets with double brackets and the deck name with yours.

As for the deck, some cards off the top of my head are:

Bident of Thassa - Pretty good with a lot of ducks

Coastal Piracy - See above, less flexible

Deepfathom Skulker - See above, can provide inevitability

I also second looking at edhrec.
