Creature — Merfolk Wizard

Sacrifice Mistcaller: Until end of turn, if a nontoken creature would enter the battlefield and it wasn't cast, exile it instead.

Mistcaller Discussion

Needs Master of the Pearl Trident , Silvergill Adept and Master of Waves . They are all really strong, and not running 4 of each of the former and 2-4 Master of Waves is stupid. Also some 1-drops would be beneficial, either Mistcaller s, Cursecatcher s or Benthic Biomancer s. Seafloor Oracle , Stonybrook Banneret and Streambed Aquitects are probably best left home.

Spreading Seas , you need it badly. It enables islandwalk and shuts off certain colours. Aether Vial is also essential, but if its out of your budget, you should do fine without it in casual environments. Some counterspells are also ran in Merfolk decks. Try Spell Pierce , Mana Leak , Deprive or Wizard's Retort .

Suggestions to consider -
-1 Essence Capture , +1 Quench , -1 Growth Spiral , +1 Forest
-1 Quench , -1,2,3,4 Applied Biomancy ? Maybe something more toolbox oriented? Better threat answers?

What about any of the following?
Enter the Unknown , Kumena's Speaker , Mistcaller (are token decks an issue?), Pelt Collector , Stony Strength , Entrancing Melody , Essence Scatter , Elvish Rejuvenator , District Guide , Crashing Tide , Song of Freyalise , Thrashing Brontodon

also Cursecatcher is not very good and is better replaced with Mistcaller

I've considered it, but Mistcaller slows only the opponent in one turn where Grafdigger's Cage continues.

I have toyed with using Harbinger of the Tides but prefer the Merrow Reejerey and tapping down my opponents creatures and swinging in for Islandwalk. At this stage i'm just teching in Merfolk Trickster in the sideboard as it is a good Tarmogoyf killer.

I might consider x3 Mistcaller as a tech option with all those meta decks that cheat their creatures in.

I have a couple of suggestions, having played against modern Merfolk. I like the deck in general, you have the right structure, there are just some card ratios and choices that I disagree with. I’m not sure how low your budget is so you might just want to ignore these.

1: Cursecatcher is played as a 4-of a lot in merfolk

2: Peek is not the best card in merfolk I would reccomend taking out all of them

3: Wanderwine Hub doesn’t do much. Choke isn’t played as much as it used to be. However, I would reccomend Faerie Conclave if you’re worried about choke

4: Dismember is useful in merfolk as a 1 mana destroy spell

5: Master of Waves is a good card. However, modern is a turn 3 - turn 4 format, meaning by the time you play master of waves, the game will be close to ending. I would reccomend only running two masters

6: I would reccomend adding 2 harbinger of tides and cutting 2 merfolk tricksters. Also, a good alternative to merfolk trickster is Merrow Reejerey

7: I definitely like Mirror Image as a budget choice for phantasmal

8: Mistcaller is a good sideboard Card, but in the vast majority of situations it doesn’t do anything. I would reccomend 2 Vapor Snag instead

9: as for the sideboard, Echoing Truth, Dispel, and Flashfreeze/Hibernation are all strong choices for the current meta

Yeah and how many Journey to Eternity  Flips and Hatchery Spiders do you see these days... let me think, close to none. I really think Mistcaller is MAYBE a sideboard card. There are much better wizards that can actually do stuff besides just sitting there as a 1-mana 1/1 do nothing. Try Viashino Pyromancer. It's pretty much a wizard staple and it's buffed by Adeliz. It can give your deck a bit more extra reach in the late game by adding in direct burn damage on a 2/1 body. Check out my Wizard deck that has so far performed really well. I have experience from playing with it in GP Orlando, so I know that Mistcaller has proven itself to be an utterly useless card.
