I think Herald of Secret Streams works much better with other merfolk like Merfolk Branchwalker and Jadelight Ranger, as it gives you more targets with +1 counters

landofMordor on Akroma's Memoral vs Outlast in ...

I'd go Outlast champions. Akroma's is just a win-more, if you have a good board state, but is also a dead card until you can ramp to 7. By contrast, the Outlast folks aren't dead cards for the first seven turns, and can help stabilize your board. You can pick and choose the most relevant ones (Mer-Ek Nightblade, Herald of Secret Streams and Abzan Falconer especially), I think.

Delta-117 on Muldrotha.. oh wait, counters?

Primal Surge perhaps? Also regardless if you care or not about a graveyard theme, I think these cards are good on their own but even better with Muldrotha:Whiptongue Hydra, Constant Mists,Mishra's Bauble, and Executioner's Capsule.

But all around good cards for your counter theme would be Kalonian Hydra, Herald of Secret Streams, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Novijen, Heart of Progress, and Hungering Hydra.

I like that you chose a different take on Muldrotha, in fact a +1/+1 counters deck was my first edh deck 3 years ago starting with Vorel of the Hull Clade, but then came along Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and it should go without saying that I obviously changed up the deck.

Thanks for the feedback Chasmolinker!!

So this deck is a pain in the sense that my creatures need to be on or above curve so fully get my evolve triggers out. Since both Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and Champion of Lambholt are under curve, their syngergy is minimal. Herald of Secret Streams is essentially my Cryptic Command for the deck.

So what I did with Ezuri is I jammed all the evasive weenies I could assemble into it. Herald of Secret Streams is awesome here. Two more great cards are Marwyn, the Nurturer and Devoted Druid. Ezuri also is a deck that can finish with Unyaro Bees, and doing this is a great thing to do. Some cards I don't play that are very powerful are Lighthouse Chronologist and Bramblewood Paragon.

Something like Song of Freyalise could end up being really strong here, as it sets up well with Herald of Secret Streams for a big swing

My Nissa Knows the Way brawl deck has amazing simic speed. It is built around Herald of Secret Streams ability to get creatures with counters unblockable. Other than that Nemesis Mask, Whispersilk Cloak and Trailblazer's Boots are great ensure hut cards.
