Lord of Atlantis Discussion

There's a small thing: you can't really trust the price-finder on tappedout. For whatever reason, it never searches for lowest value - if you want to see what I mean, go have a look at the price tag on different editions of Lord of Atlantis. Variance is rather big, and unless you do something actively, you always get the last printed version.
Other than that: Go with monowhite blink from mtggoldfish, and upgrade towards death and taxes, or towards eldrazi and taxes. I could also suggest 8-rack, but it's perhaps not the most interesting deck to play (depending on style preference, of course), but it does upgrade well enough if you want somethin that can be improved gradually.

I'm not much in favor of a full set of Harbinger of the Tides. The 4 mana it costs when played with flash makes it less than great. Get some Silvergill Adepts instead of adding more harbingers. Also, you should exchange Merfolk Sovereign for Lord of Atlantis (it's cheaper in some of the older printings than Master of the Pearl Trident). Also, consider something like Echoing Truth instead of one of your Dismembers. It kills token-strategies really well.

I know with the Humans lists I've messed around with, the problem I had was getting that "oomf!" a lot of other tribal decks have. Goblins has Goblin Chieftain. Merfolk have 29,834,891 bazillion different lords. Elves can snowball into Craterhoof Behemoth...and so on and so forth.
I also think the list is just a few pieces away from becoming an established archetype. I already think it's stronger than Slivers. If I had to put my finger on one thing in particular, it'd probably be some type of top-deck finisher. Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch saw some play in Vintage because she smashes Jace, the Mind Sculptor. She also works with Experiment One and Champion of the Parish. Surrak, the Hunt Caller and Samut, Voice of Dissent are also options.

Regarding Mer-Ek Nightblade... it's just not a very good card. At 4 mana, you could get some really powerful creatures, and this one gives conditional deathtouch - and has toughness 3, so it dies to Lightning Bolt. It's not very powerful. Deathtouch is not even relevant in every game, so this is a card that could go to the sideboard. Instead you could add Champion of Lambholt for example. Slightly lower casting cost, and capable of pushing an attack through for most of your team. Predator Ooze could also be useful, same goes for Scavenging Ooze, and a couple of other 2 or 3 mana creatures that do something with counters.
As for the problem with infect: Just board the snake out (see also: Lord of Atlantis in the merfolk mirror). If you know that you are going to encounter infect anyway, you should have a couple of sideboard slots dedicated to that matchup.

I think he'd probably be best in just any regular tempo list, like Faeries. His -2 is nice, but I don't think it's worth building around. You're doing a lot to go out of your way to pay to make a 2/2 that dies to Giant Growth if you have no lords. That seems awful for a turn 3 play in Modern.

Surgical Extraction is a good modern card by itself but it buffs your Cosi's Trickster too. Lord of Atlantis or other merfolk lords would be a good edition. Spreading Seas is good with Lord of Atlantis too.

Since your deck is casual, maybe you could incorporate some of the cheaper merfolk lords? Maybe Lord of Atlantis or Coralhelm Commander? Tishana's Wayfinder may also be useful, and Woodland Stream will help you with mana.

There are some pretty cheap dual lands you can add here to make the deck more consistent-
Looks like you already have Master of the Pearl Trident which is great. I suggest picking up Lord of Atlantis as well and then coupling it with Spreading Seas or Sea's Claim to mess with your opponent's mana and make your whole team unlblockable against non blue decks with islandwalk.
Cancel is quite bad and there are plenty of cheap upgrades you can choose from something simple as adding a scry with Dissolve or going more narrow and efficient with Spell Pierce, Unified Will, or Mana Leak
Other good Merfolk options
