As an additional cost to play Fling, sacrifice a creature.
Fling deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature or player.

I feel like red still offers more than blue. Red gives access to Fling, Invigorated Rampage, and Built to Smash. I'm curiuos how viable the pummeler strategy still is or if it can be used in some new way like with God-Pharoah's Gift (which I have to admit I've been on a bit of a kick with lately).

You absolutely need Fling! ;)

- Heart-Piercer Manticore could replace Fling in the Ravenous Intruder plan just cos it's better in a vacuum and does the job almost as well.
- Captain Lannery Storm probably does a better job of ramping on turn 3 but Hazoret's Monument could be a nice 1 or 2 of as it ramps you into all of your payoffs (besides Sunbird's Invocation) and fixes your draws in the late game.
- Fight with Fire is the sideboard hate of choice for Lyra Dawnbringer and in this deck could be a payoff for your ramp in a pinch (not to mention lyra and Settle the Wreckage usually go together)
- if you're not too attached to the Ravenous Intruder combo Brass's Bounty Reckless Fireweaver is a fun alternative that works well with sunbird's invocation.

Poaralion - I have found that the 4 red sources can be a little sparse, even by the late game when I would want to cast Fling. I tried a couple Mountain, but it too frequentyl kept me from casting a Steel Leaf Champion. I have been thinking about adding 2 Sheltered Thicket or 2 Timber Gorge, but the entering tapped thing is already a problem with Memorial to Unity, not sure if I want more.

Nice deck, look like the normal green stompy and surprise ! Fling you're dead.
Does 4 red sources is enough to work ?

Noone punches me indamowf and gets away with it, lol.
I like this list my friend. Let me know when you have it built so we can shuffle them up.
If I was building this deck I would try to fit in two more lands. Perhaps the 2x Raging Ravine from your maybe board? I also like having 6 cards for ramp but I'm not a huge fan of the Sylvan Caryatid in this deck. It would be really nice to have another one drop that could produce green and red but I'm not sure what that would be. Maybe the you could run Arbor Elf and then dial up the number of duals containing the forest land type like Cinder Glade or Sheltered Thicket.

If you want consistency, you will need card filtering, which means either going for blue cantrips like Serum Visions, Sleight of Hand ...etc. or for red looting effects like Faithless Looting.
If you want to abuse black "you lose the game" enchantments, i think it would be better to play white flicker effects. If you run Ad Nauseam, then (despite neither of us liking it), Lightning Storm is miles ahead of Zombie Infestation. What i am trying to say is that these two plans are not necessarily best suited to be played in the same deck. (there are more very painful, black enchantments to be abused, beside Demonic Pact, like Bitterblossom, Phyrexian Etchings ...etc. - or even Null Profusion for the completely mental players)
Like the previous poster mentioned Death's Shadow is a card that has great potential for builds like this, and i would add, that cards like Fling & Rite of Consumption are madly strong with it.
They often mean game if the opponent tries to race you, as they can act as walls, or just go to face if painful manabases, or bob put them in range of the 13 dmg bolt.
For some reason - probably thanks to lorwyn block art - i have a very visceral disgust of merfolk (which got reduced a lot in ixalan)...
If you are thinking about playing red, then pairing up Spreading Seas with Blood Moon seems like a strategy that in itself is often enough to win, not to mention, that you would get access to one of if not the best merfolk of all time Jori En, Ruin Diver, which can be pretty crazy, but you would likely have to give up the vial plan, in favour of cantrips, and cheap stuff in general. (+ Lightning Bolt aka. shit removal spell, that has a great failure mode, going to the face)
Imho, i don't think green merfolk is anything special, it trades if vulnerability to Choke, for being hit by Blood Moon, and the green creatures it gains are often not helping the "play all the lords & islandwalk for the win" strategy that the deck want to play, not to tmenion that playing Phantasmal Image as the X-th lord offers the option to copy value cards that are run by goodstuff decks (Dark Confidant for example).
Beside the general black packages, like targeted discard, draw for life, and destroy effect, there is not much reason to go black - Sygg, River Cutthroat exists, but he is more of a rogue tribal card, a merfolk.

I am looking for criticism of my deck (that goes beyond, stating the obvious difference from the standard RB hollow one lists), i would be even more happy if i could be hit by constructive ciritcism, and suggestions, but i will be happy with what i can get
