Prowling Serpopard Discussion
14 hours ago
I would probably go with 1 Kopala, Warden of Waves, 1 Herald of Secret Streams, and 1 or 2 Shapers of Nature in your mainboard if you are wanting to go the unblockable route. You are going to have to protect your creatures, which Kopala does decently well, and then get counters on everyone, which Shapers is excellent at doing. There's a lot of artifact hate and Metallic Mimic may not last very long once it gets on to the battlefield.
I've been playing a very aggro merfolk deck since Ixalan dropped. The biggest difference is that my deck is BUG. As they were in Ixalan, merfolk were on the cusp of great but needed help. I added black to have access to Winding Constrictor, Fatal Push, & Vraska's Contempt. I also don't run straight fish. I include Rhonas the Indomitable, Nissa, Steward of Elements, Prowling Serpopard, Narnam Renegade, and Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage. Nissa & Jace do a great job of filtering the top of your deck when you have them both on the field. I had better luck with them than I did with Search for Azcanta Flip.
Good luck with your build! I can't wait to see how Standard shakes out over the next few months.

Are you going to be running any Planeswalkers? There are quite a few good Ajani cards that could probably work in this. Would make the price go up but might be fun. Cool deck.
Also have you thought of Prowling Serpopard??

Orion93 I forgot the name for Prowling Serpopard that is a great answer if you are constantly having trouble with removal.Both Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Verdurous Gearhulk are very good but then you start leaning towards a counters deck/mono green monument. Vizier of the Menagerie is a card I have not thought about using in my explore deck before and it looks like it would be pretty solid.As for Deadeye Tracker I'm on the rocks. The card appears good and is great graveyard hate. But it can be pretty slow and I always found myself drawing it late game when I needed an answer.All in all thanks for the great suggestions! I think the explore mechanic is way to overlooked and could turn into something great!

If you run into counter control style decks then Prowling Serpopard is the SB answer.
If you run into token decks then you could risk Yahenni's Expertise or other -/- spells.
You don't need a ton of explore triggers but you do need them on curve. What I've done with my explore deck is limit my Jadelight Ranger to 2 in main board and I am using 4 Deadeye Tracker. With the Winding Constrictor on turn 2 it tends to flow nicely.
Rishkar and the Vizier are simple. It helps you keep card advantage without needing cards. And the Gearhulk? He's just gross.
There may also be room for Lifecrafter's Bestiary in your sideboard.
Good luck! I'm excited to see explore decks become a stronger part of the meta.

Netcaster Spider and Pulse of Murasa are no longer in standard :\ might I suggest more "Wayward Swordteeth", Mouth / Feed, Prowling Serpopard, or perhaps Synchronized Strike to act as makeshift vigilance?

Well, Golgari isn't that well represented within Standard right now. The only deck to post any results recently are constrictor decks that run over $250 currently. Vraska, Relic Seeker is in a weird place, where she's a pirate that doesn't fit in with other pirates. If you want a budget deck that uses Vraska, Relic Seeker, you could try a pirates deck that uses Treasure tokens to generate the mana for Vraska. Other than that, Vraska might fit in well with a -1/-1 counters deck like this:
|4x Baleful Ammit||8x Forest||2x Vraska, Relic Seeker|
|4x Channeler Initiate||4x Foul Orchard|
|4x Crocodile of the Crossing||12x Swamp||Sideboard|
|4x Exemplar of Strength||2x Bontu's Last Reckoning|
|4x Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons||Enchantment||3x Golden Demise|
|3x Journey to Eternity Flip||4x Naturalize|
|Instant||4x Nest of Scarabs||4x Never / Return|
|4x Splendid Agony||2x Prowling Serpopard|
|3x Walk the Plank|
