Nice looking deck.

Possibly adding in some Mist-Cloaked Herald could prove advantageous for turn 1 & 2 drops.

You could easily drop the white from this deck. Radiant Destiny is a fine card, but you don't need it in this deck. If you really want to run three colors, black offers removal such as Fatal Push, Vraska's Contempt (watch out for the double black mana cost though), and Moment of Craving, which Simic would otherwise lack. I would also drop the Ghaltas for either two more Jadelight Rangers, Mist-Cloaked Herald, any of the merfolk enchantments, or Forerunner of the Heralds. You also need a sideboard, if you'd like help on it please feel free to message me!

I also love cards like Mist-Cloaked Herald with cards like Navigator's Ruin. I feel like Curious Obsession is a great card, and pairs well with Mist-Cloaked Herald, but I think it takes too long to get Navigator's Ruin and Fraying Sanity off.

Expel from Orazca is great, but doesn't pair with getting your opponents to lose cards. You might want to consider replacing this with some Compelling Argument instead

I also think it might be worth looking into Baral, Chief of Compliance, and adding in some of the counter cards (like Essence Scatter, Disallow, Negate).I have personally found it almost not worth putting a card in if you only put one copy in. I feel like I would take The Immortal Sun out and replace it with another Kefnet's Monument, or remove them both and replace them with some counter cards.

Hey, just stopped by because you mentioned it on my deck. I have some insight on the deck that might be beneficial to you.

  1. I noticed you said this list is more midrange than agro, and because of that I think 20 lands is nowhere near enough. In my list 21 is a good number because I almost never need more than 4 in a game. I also have Merfolk Branchwalker to help me hit my lands. I'd recommend them in your list too, because a 3/2 for 2 or a 2/1 for 2 that draws you a card are both really good outcomes.

  2. Also because you're midrange, I think that 11 1 drop creatures may be too many. I personally run 3 Mist-Cloaked Herald and 2 Jade Bearer along with my 4 Kumena's Speaker, which is by far the best 1 drop of the 3. For your other 1 drops, I think you might need another Unsummon just for constancy, and I'd also swap out your main deck Negates for Spell Pierce but keeping the ones in your sideboard.

  3. In your list I would go with Deeproot Waters over Jungleborn Pioneer because the former will give you more value as the game goes on.

  4. I like the Swift Wardens, to go along with them though I would recommend Blossoming Defense as a good way to also protect your creatures.

  5. 4 Kumena, best amount!

  6. I would drop Tempest Caller down to 2 or 3 copies, it's not a card you want multiples of. Alternatively I've seen people run Watertrap Weaver which is actually pretty decent despite how it might look at first glance.

  7. Finally the sideboard, I would drop the Jade Guardian in favor of more Swift Wardens. I would also replace Silent Gravestone for either Crook of Condemnation or Scavenger Grounds, Gravestone doesn't stop a lot of things like GPG which I find my deck has a rough time against with cards like Gifted Aetherborn, Angel of Invention, and Aethersphere Harvester. For that reason I also sideboard in Naturalize as it also helps against most Orzov, Esper, Etc. tokens lists.

Hope everything I've said can help, I might be wrong on some stuff but I think I might be able to help you get closer to what you're going for.

I think this is a situation you can justify running 4x Sram, Senior Edificer, and probably should. Beyond that some removal ish recommendations with Sea Legs, Luminous Bonds, and Compulsory Rest. Sea Legs is more of a combat trick though. You can also consider adding some unblockable damage with say Mist-Cloaked Herald, just to really capitalize off of Curious Obsession.

Here's the thing, you don't want/need much more in the way of creatures in this deck. Storm Fleet Sprinter caps the curve at 3 and is hasted, keeping the tempo fast. With the card advantage you generate from the rest of the deck, you can consistently draw into multiples of everything. Key to that part is then holding up a couple Slither Blade's or Mist-Cloaked Herald's for when they Settle the Wreckage for the 3rd time and you're out of counters. No the weakness of this deck is usually in quick finishing power, often you get them to 3-5 and they finally get their draw. A successful Approach of the Second Sun is devastating to this deck, as not only does it mean they're a few turns from winning themselves, but now they've gained 7 life.

Your mana is a little slow.

Not sure if it's a budget thing but Botanical Sanctum is much better than Woodland Stream.

I wouldn't mind seeing two more lands, as you are often mana screwed on Turn 4, when you want to start casting your bigger threats.

The biggest challenges for this deck are against ones that can get big Creatures on to the field from Turn 3 and onwards, like Stompy Whompy Dinos and Control decks, like Flame-Chained.

Since those decks outpace yours by targetting your Creatures, and board wiping, some Blossoming Defense and Heroic Intervention in the Sideboard would be more useful than extra copies of your Creatures.

I would try this:


1x Herald of Secret Streams
1x Jade Bearer
1x Jungleborn Pioneer
1x Kumena's Speaker
1x Merfolk Mistbinder
1x Mist-Cloaked Herald
1x River Sneak


3x Blossoming Defense
4x Heroic Intervention

You can play around with this numbers, but I would not go lower than three copies of each.

Hope that helps.
