Deeproot Waters Discussion

daNoodalz on Merfolk time

Add another Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, because there is low chance you'll draw the one that you have. Maybe replace some of your instants with River Heralds' Boon. Consider Deeproot Waters. Make it 3 Herald of Secret Streams. Take away all Swift Wardens as some merfolks already have hexproof, and it's only till end of turn. Replace it with Kopala, Warden of Waves, since his effect is permanent. But, remember, he's a legendary creature, so have 2-3 of him, not 1 or 4. Nice deck, keep up the good work, hope my suggestions help!

Nice deck, magicsheep. You seem to have all the best merfolk, meaning that this deck has lots of synergies. Have you considered Deeproot Waters?

Why do you only have 1 of some of the best merfolk? I would add a Deeproot Waters, as it is overpowered in merfolk decks. Add 1-2 more Deeproot Elite, Forerunner of the Heralds, Herald of Secret Streams, and Merfolk Mistbinder. Maybe remove Riverwise Augur and Merfolk Looter. Nice deck, keep up the good work, hope my suggestions help.

Doesn't really look too bad for me.
You can get some ideas from this deck Jimmy's Kumena l Game Knights #14, it looked cool in the game they reccorded. Stuff like:
Empress Galina
Lullmage Mentor
Path of Discovery
Deeproot Waters
Heroic Intervention

Maybe some recursion like Seasons Past, Creeping Renaissance or the staple Eternal Witness.
Or some more card draw Mask of Memory, Shamanic Revelation or Pull from Tomorrow.
Maybe you need some more removal Reality Shift, Snakeform, Imprisoned in the Moon, Song of the Dryads, Pongify.
A card to make your opponents crap their pants Quietus Spike, perfect with an unblockable commander.

It just depends on your meta, what you lack during your games.

WoodyPhil Perfect if left at 4 or 5 and you Just 0 every turn. If your opponent cant touch her it gets ridiculous. Also playing her and ulting the same turn while not often necessary is still a great option. She IS one of the first cards to come out because Deeproot Waters #3 and #4 are better in the "make creatures only" role though.

A few things I can say about your list. Merfolk Branchwalker and Silvergill Adept, They are both strong 2 drops that replace themselves when you play them, which is very important when it comes to Standard Merfolk. With cards like Deeproot Elite and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca being the backbone of the archtype, you really need a way to keep playing as many merfolk as you can without running out of cards in your hand, because once you do, you stop making your board stronger. Kumena's Speaker is by far the best 1 drop you can play, whereas Jade Bearer and Mist-Cloaked Herald are both okay, but nowhere near as powerful as Speaker. Shapers of Nature is a card I feel has no place being in any Merfolk list, it is just a much worse Kumena. Merfolk Mistbinder is another card you really need to have 4 of, especially when you're playing Jungleborn Pioneer or Deeproot Waters , speaking of, running both in your list can seem fun, in my opinion Waters is a much too slow card to be playing despite how much value it can give you. Hadana's Climb, is in sort of the same way, much too slow despite how much value it can get you. The last piece of advice I really have is that Herald of Secret Streams isn't what you want to be playing for a way to close the game, it can be destroyed when you go attacking with all of your buffed fish making for some really bad blocks that can lose you the game. Tempest Caller is a much safer and more reliable way to close out the game. Other than that for budget reasons I can see why you're playing Woodland Streams over Botanical Sanctum and only 2 copies of Kumena. Best of luck with your fish list, if you need any more help, you know where to find me.

sportcarracer- Nice deck! You have all the key merfolk in your deck, except for maybe Silvergill Adept. You don't have to worry about it's first ability due to the abundance of merfolk in your deck. Your curve is really cheap, meaning when you play a bunch of small merfolk in one turn, Deeproot Waters, or Jungleborn Pioneer, it can become really formidable, maybe even a 7/6 in late-game.

Sg-86 no kumena dude, i was pondering wether to add him or not but it being such an aggro deck, tapping down my creatures seemed kinda counter productive, think he would run better alongside Deeproot Waters and such, I may add him though...Thank you Magicsheep, no mate the deck really needs to utilise every space and Forerunner of the Heralds is just a little too slow, despite being a good card, just couldnt find a space...
