Hi, toastySmorc I've said it before but when updated the deck I must have removed it, but Herald of Secret Streams relies heavily on +1/+1 counters, and currently they are just an up side to the deck with Deeproot Elite and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca being the only cards that give +1/+1 counters outside of Merfolk Branchwalker exploring when it etbs. The other reason I like Tempest Caller over Herald is because the opponent can remove Herald after you've declared attacks, making for some very awkward blocks from your opponent. Once you play Tempest Caller on a good enough board, it will usually win you the game outright.

Hiya. Really cool deck, and I love the price tag as a cheap way into standard. Have you considered Herald of Secret Streams as a possible replacement for Tempest Caller? They're very similar, but I feel repeated unblockable damage has some value.

I think the curve here is too heavy - it will be hard to keep counterspell mana up, when you have a bunch of creatures at 3 and 4 cmc, and some of your counterspells also cost 3. Perhaps try something like Spell Pierce?

Consider dropping the following:
Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - not a Warrior
Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet & Gruul Signet - weak color fixing and better use of sleeves.
Bident of Thassa - not sure, seems kinda weak but it may be better in your deck.
Bear Umbra - cute aura, but aura's are weak in multipler unless your playing aura voltron.
Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - you aren't making snakes. I know that the destroy a creature is nice, but deathtouch does effectively the same thing.
Warriors to consider:
Mardu Woe-Reaper, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk, Wild Nacatl, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Ogre Marauder, Brutal Hordechief, Drumhunter, Wolfir Silverheart
Glistener Elf - for those times when you really HAVE to but don't want to.....
Patriarch's Bidding - the best tribal recursion spell
Bloodsoaked Champion & Reassembling Skeleton - skullclamp or chump block all day long.
Surrak Dragonclaw & Yasova Dragonclaw - Because why not?
Imperious Perfect & Nacatl War-Pride - tokens!
Brion Stoutarm - fling!
Cliffhaven Vampire - this could be a combo piece....
Herald of Secret Streams - ahahahahahahaha Bramblewood Paragon has a best friend
There are more Warriors to consider, but I wanted to focus on some utility that you may have overlooked.
Here are some lands you may have overlooked: Unclaimed Territory, Opal Palace, Reflecting Pool

Oew Pir and toothy. Ever since I build a deck around Reyhan, Last of the Abzan +1/+1 counters within simic always have a weakness in my heart.
So what about Herald of Secret Streams for the evasion toothy severely lacks.
I'd also recommend Ordeal of Nylea. It's less overpowered here than with Reyhan, but cheap ramp and a counter still.
Also what about more cycle/wheels like Jace's Archivist. Disrupt your opponents, refresh your hand, and more combo for toothy and the crawler alike.

jchudz: i think mentor actually lends itself to MORE interesting design space than battalion did. battalion was super straightforward. put a bunch of creatures on the field, get a temporary predetermined bonus. +1/+1 counters are permanent and are something you can actually do things with. be thankful Walking Ballista and Winding Constrictor rotate out of standard when Guilds of Ravnica releases. I realize Winding Constrictor isn't boros colors, but it could still have created jund or abzan colored decks using any monocolored cards with the mentor mechanic. of course, there will still be merfolk after rotation, and those already use counters. so i could potentially see temur/bant/jeskai/izzet/azorius decks that use the merfolks who benefit from +1/+1 counters. like Herald of Secret Streams.
