Chhris on Merfolk of Cascade Falls

Hi! I was directed her from your forum post, so I'll just comment here if that's ok :)

I'm assuming you might run around 36 lands, which will put the decklist as 92 cards, giving you room for 8 more. I haven't really seen Temur Merfolk as a thing. So I was pretty surprised when I first saw it. But this looks cool. This list has the potential to be very, very explosive and quick, probably giving you the ability to knock 1-2 opponents out of the game very quickly.

I would say Vanquisher's Banner , Temur Ascendancy , Murkfiend Liege , Surgespanner , and added card draw for the late game will really help. You have access to Red, so you can use Reforge the Soul and Blasphemous Act and Vandalize effects.

Hope some of this gives you ideas! Good luck with the deck!!

Yotian_Soldier on 75% Simic Hydra Tribal

05 May 2019 update:

Major overhauling of the deck; added new cards from War of The Sparks:

Karn's Bastion > Island

Evolution Sage > Renegade Krasis

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner > Endless One

With the return of proliferate mechanic in WAR is a godsend to this deck as it greatly helped with the sub-theme of proliferating the various counters on our permanents. Also the synergy between Evolution Sage and Fertilid is just bonkers.

It is just sad that the sole hydra in the set ( Bioessence Hydra ) relies on planeswalkers to get it's counters and this deck only planeswalker is Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner which main purpose is for an additional activation of our commander among other things with her minus ability. She compliments with both Seedborn Muse and Retreat to Coralhelm to increase the number of activation of our commander. Looking for a slot to jam in Murkfiend Liege .

Will wait for the rotation of Hydroid Krasis to soften the card's price.

Yes, Murkfiend Liege 's abilities apply to Roon despite not mentioning all of Roon's colors. Roon is green, and Roon is blue, so Roon qualifies for the untap ability and both of the +1/+1 abilities (since they are separate, you apply each separately, so creatures that are both blue and green receive both for a total of +2/+2).

The same goes for protection. If an ability says "protection from red," it doesn't matter that the creature is also green. Nikya of the Old Ways is red because it has red in its casting cost, and no color-defining text to change that. Vestige of Emrakul , on the other hand, is colorless because Devoid says so, so it is not red.

The interaction in question is Murkfiend Liege and Roon of the Hidden Realm . The question is, does murkfiend’s untap ability apply to Roon even though it only mentions two of the colors in Roon’s color scheme and not all three?

On a side note would this apply to spells with protection from one color when the card in question is multicolored? Like for instance I have protection from red and a green and red creature attacks me. Would I still have protection from it?

Gurt30_84 on Tatyova, Benthic Druid

I try to get Tatyova, Benthic Druid out as quick as I can. Sometimes turn 3, if I can get Simic Growth Chamber and a land and put out Azusa, Lost but Seeking on turn 2.

Psychic Corrosion let's me mill opponents pretty quick when I start drawing off of Beast Whisperer + Rashmi, Eternities Crafter + Guardian Project + Soul of the Harvest

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary helps with this too.

Scapeshift + Tishana, Voice of Thunder + Hydroid Krasis draw me a bunch of cards, through landfall and creatures, dealing damage for each card drawn, with Psychosis Crawler

If I use Scapeshift and sac X lands, aside from drawing X cards and gaining X life, I can always block with World Shaper and let it die, returning those X lands from the graveyard to the battlefield, drawing me X cards, and gaining X life.....

Murkfiend Liege + Wilderness Reclamation untaps my creatures and lands on my end step. That allows me to play cards on my opponents end step with Alchemist's Refuge .

You should add Eldrazi Conscription , Loyal Guardian , Murkfiend Liege and Austere Command .

For removal, you could probably cut back on the creatures that return cards from the graveyard.

Inkmoth on Roony and the Blink Machine!

Since you're leaning towards casual and you already rock Murkfiend Liege and Seedborn Muse , I would consider Leyline of Anticipation , Vedalken Orrery , or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir . The loss of Prophet of Kruphix in Roon really hurts, but those suggestions coupled with the untappers can make your deck hella fun since you'll be able to turn your opponents' turns into yours :D

All around great deck, but I would want at least one or two counters, maybe Glen Elendra Archmage , since you can blink her to reset persist.
