Merrow Harbinger Discussion

Thank you so much for the suggestions!
Serum Visions is interesting. It is better than Bident of Thassa since it costs less, draws the same amount of cards but doesn't count on dealing damage. I am torn about how it compares to Cold-Eyed Selkie since the fish can draw a lot of cards, but also counts on being able to hit.
Not sure about Merrow Harbinger. The card is kinda expensive in my opinion (the same cost as Master of Waves, on which I am souring a little anyway), and while proxying, I was never at a loss for a merfolk to play.
I am thinking about dropping both Master of Waves and Merfolk Sovereigns to maybeboard, and replace it with one more Merrow Reejerey and three Serum Visions. There is also the Silvergill Adept which lets me draw cards and is a merfolk, so it combos nicely with the Lords.

Did not know about that, thanks a lot I think he would be a good replacement for Merrow Harbinger.

gonki The list of faerie wizards is pretty small. Puppeteer Clique is already here, and the only other one I'd consider running might be Oona, Queen of the Fae, though I'm also trying to keep the CMC down to utilize Inalla's ability better.
I like Condescend and I think I'll get a copy of that. Mizzix's Mastery is something I'd have to look at. I'm trying to figure out what instants and sorceries to keep, and with the full suite of spell recursion I might not need it. I'll keep it in mind though.

This is the list of cards I think you should take out:
This are some that you could add:

4x Aquitect's Will. Just do it. If you put in the Aquitect's Will, you can get rid all of the other "land type changers". You can also search for Aquitect's Will with Merrow Harbinger (or any other merfolk) as the Will is a Tribal Sorcery. I would take out the Merfolk Sovereigns and replace them with Merrow Harbinger and/or Lullmage Mentor (if you want to counter things)/Sage of Fables. Sigil Tracer isn't bad. Neither is Wake Thrasher as it triggers for everything you untap during the untap step. Lord of Atlantis is a legendary creature, so I would add 1 Master of the Pearl Trident and take away 1 Lord of Atlantis because they do the same thing.

Alright, finally sat down and read it. Thoughts:
Not sold on: Merfolk Sovereign
Replacement ideas: Streambed Aquitects can pump a merfolk to prep for zagana entering, or with any other merfolk lord, islandwalking. as an additional note, ensures whiskergill can attack :)
Rogue's Passage can help fix mana, and ensure any beater you have gets through
any other merfolk lord that gives islandwalk, sure its situational but they also usually pump, and punishing blue decks is always satisfying
Ordinarily I would wonder why you would want Fauna Shaman over Survival of the Fittest, but the creature synergy with zegana/kruphix is strong enough to convince me that the creature choice is better in this instance.
Also not sold on: Sagu Mauler
Possible replacements: Cache Raiders Trigger Zegana every turn, without increasing mana cost, or bounce your Fathom Mage, Mystic Snake, Progenitor Mimic, Reclamation Sage, Selkie Hedge-Mage, Vendilion Clique, Wistful Selkie, Woodfall Primus. It can repair your Glen Elendra Archmage, and could give you another landfall trigger via Lotus Cobra. If you have no other targets you want to bounce, just bounce itself. Major drawback: mana cost, and non-optional bouncing.
Wanderwine Prophets, extra turns, but mainly bouncing merfolk to revive them or their ETB triggers, like Zegana, wistful selkie, or selkie hedge-mage. Also gives good protection against board wipes.
Stormtide Leviathan is absolutely devastating to the board. Dunno if much else can be said.
Potential Card Ideas:
Merrow Harbinger as a replacement to whiskergill? Its not a complete tutor, but its something.
Overall, very cool. Well formatted and explained.
