Leatherankh Metallic Mimic is just a worse Deeproot Elite utility wise.

Thinking it would work better with Deeproot Elite. It's going to be a work in progress but I'm hoping Merfolk will be strong in this meta.

apj_elfman Man I don't think tapping down your opponent's creatures necessarily matters. I think Merfolk can go so wide that it doesn't matter whether their creatures are tapped or not. Admiral's Order is definitely good. I would say that the tokens vs. counters themes are not mutually exclusive. Why not have tokens with counters on them? With Deeproot Elite out, Deeproot Waters can produce more fish and therefore counters. With mimic out you can get tokens with counters on them.

I just think pretty much any four drop is just a dead card in hand during the crucial turns where you're trying to get the mana down and play important merfolk.

I got to play Sunday in the prerelease. Opened a sweet foil Deeproot Elite, but only 3 other merfolk. So I went Grixis pirates and I got the nuttiest pool ever.

1 Ravenous Chupacabra, 1 Dire Fleet Ravager, 1 Dire Fleet Poisoner, 1 Captain Lannery Storm, 1 Warkite Marauder were my rares and mythics.

Everything in the deck besides Chupacabra and Raveger and 1 Impale was 3 or less mana.

I got to tempo out people hard. T5-6 kills were plenty. T2 Wanted Scoundrels into t3 Fathom Fleet Boarder into turn 4 Dire Fleet Poisoner + Buccaneer's Bravado left the opponent at 1 life.

Went 3-1 with the deck, losing only to mono-bombs that went t5 Trapjaw Tyrant 2 games and the third went Sunbird's Invocation into next turn Form of the Dragon that fetched and playeda Tyrant for free.

I don't think Herald of Secret Streams is necessary.River Sneak is a two drop that's already unblockable and you can buff it up with Deeproot Elite. Where is Kumena's Speaker? It's a 3/3 for one if you play it with a Metallic Mimic out. That's good with Deeproot Elite too.

I would play at least one more Deeproot Waters. The synergy between that and Deeproot Elite is pretty crazy.

I don't think Tishana, Voice of Thunder is relevant to the deck either.

I Love merfolk and have also been playing around with a standard list for Ixalan block. Would you consider Deeproot Waters in the deck as a possible 2 of? It would allow each of your creatures to pop another out as well, simply generating more lil creatures to swing with. It also would trigger the effect of Deeproot Elite a second time.

This looks really nice! Love the look of Deeproot Elite. Did you consider Herald of Secret Streams? I'm running 4 copies in my Merfolk deck and he seems to end the game pretty quickly.

B means black when abbreviating colors, use U for when you want to abbreviate blue. Otherwise the deck looks very fun and cool! If you can get your hands on some of the new merfolk from rivals of ixalan, I would recommend the cards Merfolk Mistbinder, Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, Silvergill Adept, and Deeproot Elite. Also once you start to get more merfolk cards it might be better to play more of the same card for consistancy.
