Jungleborn Pioneer Discussion

Hey! I've playtested the deck a bit. It felt pretty nice but I saw some places where it could have been better in imo.

First things first, I would change Jungleborn Pioneer into River Sneak as it is a bit more evasive and has a lower CMC.

Secondly, I think you should look into some planeswalkers. Huatli, Radiant Champion felt really nice to me, especially with her -1 ability and unblockable Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. Nissa, Steward of Elements could also work.

Then I onto the lands. Firstly, I tried cutting down lands to 22 as this is an aggro deck and the curve isn't that high. Moreover, I don't really believe Unclaimed Territory fits here as you need more basic lands to untap the dual ones and not the whole deck is only Merfolk.

Finally, I see Opt and Radiant Destiny could also fit here but they didn't perform that well while I was playtesting.

Anyway, this deck felt really nice. I think I'll be bringing it to the next fnm.

Those are good ideas, but I prefer Jungleborn Pioneer as it is a good top deck after a wrath, and it provides more bodies for Deeproot Elite, Merfolk Mistbinder, and Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. As for Curious Obsession, it could be good but it would mean going down some merfolk, making all the lords worse and Unclaimed Territory worse.

I feel like Vineshaper Mystic would serve you better than Jungleborn Pioneer given the focus on +1 counters. I know JP can give you a double trigger on Deeproot Elite, but Vineshaper Mystic lets you really choose your counters more effectively I think and is a better blocker/stand in, with the 3 base toughness.

Another card to consider is Curious Obsession, as the card advantage can be really impressive on something like Mist-Cloaked Herald, or anything else that is unblockable (flyer from Climb, anything else if you have Herald of Secret Streams out)

Jungleborn Pioneer is a good choice for the deck, as your 1/1 merfolk token will be unblockable with Tetsuko out. With that said, you might want to add Saproling Migration and Spore Swarm to get even more tokens.

Also, because Tetsuko make any creature with power/toughness of 1 unblockable and you're playing with green, you might want to consider some combat tricks; cards like Blossoming Defense and Larger Than Life. You can play these instant spells after the declare blockers step because with a Tetsuko out, they're already unblockable. Blossoming Defense also helps protect Tetsuko, which you want to do because the deck is based around her

Thank you, you confirmed most of my worries about this deck. I'll definitely get Tetsuko's playset, once Dominaria is fully out.I was also thinking about adding creatures that create additional units on the battlefield(Jungleborn Pioneer, for example). This way, I can get both attack and some kind of defense.

Jungleborn Pioneer is really fun when you have river sneak and Deeproot waters on the field. River sneak gets that +3

Hey there! Thanks for your suggestions on my deck!

If you're going for a more Merfolk-centric deck, Kopala, Warden of Waves, Merrow Harbinger, Lullmage Mentor, Seahunter, Cryptolith Rite, and Master of Waves are all very strong.

As for just general suggestions, Counterspell, Kodama's Reach, Krosan Grip, Beast Within, Rapid Hybridization, Reality Shift, Lightning Greaves, Plasm Capture, Eternal Witness, and Explosive Vegetation are all very strong.

Also, not sure if this is something you want to be putting in your deck, but you can go for the Strip Mine/Wasteland lock with Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Crucible of Worlds (or Ramunap Excavator).

Finally, if you're looking for cards to cut, I'd consider Arctic Merfolk, Jade Bearer, Jungleborn Pioneer, Merfolk Branchwalker, Storm Sculptor, Vineshaper Mystic, Extract, Enter the Unknown, and Exhaustion.

Hope this helps, and thanks again for your suggestions!
