I like the Kormus Bell idea. Maybe throw in a Mystic Compass to hit some nasty non-basics?

Oh sorry lol, this deck is among my weakest ones. Mirri is probably a more reliable commander, but the general idea is that you try and set up forestwalk with Yavimaya Dryad or Mystic Compass etc, and then you unblockable over. I mostly just wanted an excuse to use all of my forestwalk related stuff :) It deserves more love, but i just dont have to card base or the time to upgrade it atm.

Get rid of Demonlord Belzenlok. Exiling your cards is not what you want to do with Izoni. Loyal Guardian is kind of meh, so I'd drop it for something that better fits what you want to do. I think I'd ditch Necrotic Ooze for something more consistent, like Murder or Go for the Throat, or Naturalize for artifact/enchantment removal.

Burnished Hart and Tortured Existence would be good additions to make. Tortured Existence basically allows you to turn your graveyard into a toolbox. Brawn is a creature you want to put into your graveyard, along with a card like Filth if you can find ways to abuse it (Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Blanket of Night, even Mystic Compass). I think I would personally run fewer cards like Cultivate and Overgrowth for more mana dorks, like Blood Pet and Blood Vassal, who work well with your graveyard theme, and Birds of Paradise and even Elves of Deep Shadow. These mana dorks help your curve out with early drops, and they can be sac fodder down the road if you need it. Good cards for sacrifice decks include Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. A card like Fecundity provides even more card draw.

Hope these help you out!

I feel like Rhystic Study would be a waste of a slot since I can just tap 3 merfolk for draw if needed and I personally don't like the attention it draws with asking players if they're paying for rhystic.

And as for Mystic Compass I don't think it's necessary because one creature has islandwalk, I'm only using one lord that gives all creatures islandwalk, and personally if I were to use a card like that Quicksilver Fountain would be better.

Thanks for the suggestions though!

Looks like a fun tribal you've got going here. I'm surprised there's no Rhystic Study. Since you have some islandwalk-granting abilities in there, you could run a Mystic Compass. It might net you a win.

Bellowing Tanglewurm, might just be a large dumb thing. Could think of dropping it. Fyndhorn Druid why is this here? Mystic Compass you have lots of these effects, and this one does the least. Lace with Moonglove looks much to cute for a "gota-yuh" card. Heroic Intervention is a much better card then Withstand Death. Wood Elves out of the land searching cards this is probably the worst.

I really like the build. +1. With the ability to give all your Merfolk Islandwalk, you might consider adding Mystic Compass as a wincon.
