Gnarlroot Trapper Discussion

All I want is a 1/1 Merfolk dork for with something like " : add to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to cast a Merfolk creature spell or activate an ability of a Merfolk creature. If you spend this mana to cast a creature spell, you may cast that spell as though it had flash."

I guess that's kind of maybe overpowered compared to the last 1-drop dork I remember, Gnarlroot Trapper.

Not a fish-pun in the title. 0/10 wouldn't splash blue.
I really don't like Gnarlroot Trapper since it doesnt help you playing CoCo. I'd prefere Noble Hierarch or Elves of Deep Shadow. But for my limited experience 8 Dorks are enough.

Ditch Gnarlroot Trapper and put in Elvish Mystic; mystic is just generally better. Another way you can take it is like I did. (take a look at my deck) Since you use lots of blink cards I would recommend Servant of the Conduit and Aether Hub so you can produce all the colors you may need. I would remove Beastcaller Savant for the servant.

Here's my frontier deck if you'd like to take a look: An Elvish Frontier.

Skybolt, I don't mean to sound mean, but you're incorrect. Caves of Koilos and Llanowar Wastes produce the same colorless mana as Westvale Abbey  Flip or Crumbling Vestige; the only thing that changed was the image they use to show colorless mana.

Trtl on Elves From Standard to Frontier

Sweet deck! I love elves on the frontier! If you're interested you can take a look at my deck here: An Elvish Frontier. One major recommendation is Narnam Renegade. You're running so little black that you can drop Gnarlroot Trapper without a problem.

Someone mentioned Wellwisher, but it's not modern legal. So Essence Warden is the right answer.

You may want to take a look at Gnarlroot Trapper if you haven't already; a "pain" llanowar elf with the potential to transform any silly attack into murder. Elves of Deep Shadow might be useful, though I don't think so, since you've already got black mana sources well covered.

Consider Eyeblight's Ending. Not as devastating as Eyeblight Massacre, but it's bright side is that it is an instant spell which could be crucial to stop the mechanics of the opponent during his or her turn.

You might also consider Asceticism for sideboard, though it is not very cheap to play. I personally prefer an ofensive defense; I'm talking about an underrated card called Lurking Predators, we all know it exists and we all know it has great potential but it has not met the gameplay it should.
