Judge of Currents Discussion

ObIviom this still controls pretty well and smashes face without running Coat of Arms or Door of Destinies you know those tribal card staples. my play group is casual but i think the groups decks vary from 6-8 pemmin's aura does work well it takes advantage of Azami, Lady of Scrolls , Grimoire Thief , Empress Galina , Fallowsage , Judge of Currents , Seahunter , Merfolk Sovereign , Surgespanner and all that tapping makes Wake Thrasher huge and if you run and infinite mana loop with a blue source available it gets silly but i don't

I like merfolks. But i prefer when they are combined with the white part of their family. I suggest Judge of Currents and Stonybrook Schoolmaster . To tap your creatures, use Mothdust Changeling .

If you don't want to add the white cards. At least consider adding Rootwater Hunter and Distant Melody .

no need for Hallowed Fountain , u only summon Judge of Currents with Paradise Mantle 's mana, Aether Vial protects Laboratory Maniac from counter spells and its also mana ramp like. if u already got Puresight Merrow , u can use Muddle the Mixture to tutor Judge of Currents and u can also tutor Judge of Currents to the top of your deck with Puresight Merrow + Paradise Mantle combo.

You might want to add a Hallowed Fountain in case you can't turn 1 or 2 the Aether Vial for Judge of Currents .

Have you considered metalcraft and "when this becomes tapped" effects? Or would that lean too far away from the midrange-y goodstuff goal of this deck.

You obviously play merfolk in modern a lot and the format a lot, I am trying to build a similar deck and I wonder if I could ask you some questions:

  1. How significant is Aether Vial and is the interaction with Merrow Reejerey that makes it so potent?
  2. Would you go UG to accommodate the best Green merfolk, particularly from Ixalan block?
  3. Would you consider utilising Wanderwine Hub to incorporate Stonybrook Schoolmaster, Judge of Currents or Rest in Peace? The latter appears worth it considering the tier 1 matchups. The two white merfolk would take advantage of other merfolk that like to tap merfolk for abilities and every time you attack.

What are your thoughts?

LeaPlath I run x4 Harpoon Sniper to take care of fliers or large creatures that I may not be able to kill via blocking/attacking alone. I also run Judge of Currents and Stonybrook Schoolmaster for life and tokens (2 of each), which I don't really need but their tap synergy with Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca would speed them both up a lot, hence why I want to try keeping them. Also, Veteran of the Depths would get a boost and tap synergy with Kumena, though I don't currently run Veteran. Also, Summon the School for tokens for Kumena.
