Mist-Cloaked Herald Discussion

Boza on NO-RARE UG Merfolk deck

Well, good for you - none of the super good merfolk are rare or mythic.

Start with 4 Merfolk Branchwalker, 4 Silvergill Adept, 4 Kumena's Speaker and 4 Merfolk Mistbinder. This is your core.

From here you have 2-3 branches - token spam with Deeproot Waters, alpha striking with Tempest Caller or low-to-the ground with protection with Swift Warden or unblockable tall with River Heralds' Boon.

I honestly think that n4 is the correct one, with a bit of number 3.

4 Blossoming Defense and 4 Swift Warden could very well compliment 4 Vineshaper Mystic, 4 River Heralds' Boon, 4 River Sneak, and 4 Mist-Cloaked Herald.

Hi, nice approach!

I tested here against meta (magic online). This deck need more fast defense. It is good. Jace, Cunning Castaway + Curious Obsession it's great for tempo.

I have modificate this:

-2 Drake Haven - You have not sufficient cycling.-2 Baral, Chief of Compliance - You dont need help to play instant or sorceries (only 9 and cost 2 at most)-1 Censor - You have so much counters spells like Favorable Winds-1 Spell Pierce - You dont need spell pierce because Favorable Winds is better. Maybe sideboard.

+2 Curious Obsession+4 Perilous Voyage

I am wondering if Chart A Course is good for this deck ... I will test another options.

I am rethinking this deck with Rivals of Ixalan:

Warkite Marauder, Mist-Cloaked Herald and Baral's Expertise

I don't mean to tell you what to do with your deck, but it's a bit weird you say it revolves around evasive creatures. To me it's clear it revolves around auras to pump your dudes, disrupt the opponent and draw a bunch of cards. As much fun as this deck looks, running no removal is almost suicidal in a competitive environment.

I'd switch Adorned Pouncer for Sacred Cat, which I think is the weakest creature in the deck. And Warkite Marauder for Daring Saboteur because this new pirate is going to be a star. And though I recognize the quality of Siren Stormtamer I'm not conviced with her in this deck. Maybe Mist-Cloaked Herald instead?

By the way, maybe Squire's Devotion is worth a shot. And congrats again for brewing with new archetypes ;)

TepigAggro how is a Mist-Cloaked Herald not good? its a 1 mana unblockable creature with no drawback and standard merfolk use a lot of +1/+1 counters. it becomes a real big threat real quick

I think I might agree with bulletmonkey97. If they have the 6 or 7 mana to counter Spell Pierce, you have probably already lost anyway because they are either about to or already have cast an Approach. Heroic Intervention provides other uses though; for example, I used it to kill off a Ghalta with a deck similar to this one the other day. I would be curious to see what you have to say about Jade Bearer vs. Mist-Cloaked Herald. Otherwise, I think the deck looks good; a fun sidenote, you might consider trying out Growing Rites of Itlimoc for some huge Nissas :)

Shirubaurufu Honestly, what I see as the best way to make this deck more competitive from here is to cut 3x Hadana's Climb main board a Settle the Wreckage and add 2x either Jadelight Ranger or Mist-Cloaked Herald to main board depending on if you're aiming for a more aggro opening or if you're committing to midrange. I said it before, but I don't think Hadana's Climb will ever do enough in this deck.

I don't like the idea of ramping your opponent's mana-base with Old-Growth Dryads, and would rather use Mist-Cloaked Herald as my agro 1-drop. I do, however like the concept. I took a different path with Explore aggressively

Thanks for the suggestions Boza!

You may be onto something with Kumena, I will be testing him over the next few days. For now I'm running him because he is a good body that can break board stalls. The curve of this deck is already very low, putting in any more than 16 2-drops seems like too much. I could, however, see taking him out for cards like Vineshaper Mystic, Jungleborn Pioneer, or Watertrap Weaver. It will simply be a matter of testing the optimal 3-drop to fill that slot.

I'm wondering why you like River Heralds' Boon so much? It seems very mediocre to me compared to 2-drop creatures, or even Blossoming Defense.

I actually agree that Mist-Cloaked Herald is better than Jade Bearer, however, our mana cannot support consistently being able to have a 1-drop on turn 1. For this reason, I chose the 1-drop to go along with Kumena's Speaker. To be fair, Jade Bearer can be played on turn 1, it's just sub-optimal. Still, I'd prefer a suboptimal 1-drop to one that I can't reliably play on turn 1.
