Puresight Merrow Discussion

I enjoy brewing weird decks in Modern, so I'll share some of the things that have caught my attention

Ghirapur AEther Grid I think has loads of potential. I tried brewing it RG with Brass's Bounty and also in RW with Smothering Tithe.

Also a big fan of Unbound Flourishing for brews. I've been experimenting with Magus of the Candelabra and Hydroid Krasis in a UG shell, as well as Magus + Banefire + Underworld Breach + all the red loot effects like Thrill of Possibility in a RG variant.

I've also been exploring Puresight Merrow + Paradise Mantle in a Thassa's Oracle deck, which has been tons of fun.

Thank you for your input on the deck, Honestly the land base is gonna go through some changes as my budget frees itself a little bit more, and I'll be adding shocklands and the like to make the deck a bit faster, Evolving Wilds was just a filler card for a land. Also, the Ambassador Laquatus combo with infinite colorless was mostly put into the deck purely because it was a combo I've never had in a deck and I wanted to try it out, thinking about changing the cards out for Pemmin's Aura and Puresight Merrow as they would work better for the deck, HOWEVER, I don't know if Ambassador Laquatus would be worth keeping in the deck at that point, and I'm at a loss for what I want to replace him with.


Sorry for having only one comment to answer two comments, I was a tad late on my reply haha. Anyhow, thank you so much for checking out the deck! I have been thinking about adding Pemmin's Aura for a week or so now, and just haven't figured out how i want to my cuts, thank you for the suggestion!

Hi, This deck is really similar to mine, however I decided to go tribal Merfolk for flavor reasons, knowing Wizard tribal is objectively better, however my deck still seems to perform very well. I was just wondering if Puresight Merrow is a worthy card to put in the deck, currently i think i would switch out Cosi's Trickster for it, even though it would raise my average cmc. I run Paradise Mantle Combo's as well and just wasn't certain how worth the combo is.

Also i noticed that you run Steelshaper's Gift instead of Enlightened Tutor , and I don't see any Intruder Alarm even though the deck is normally able to abuse it.

I think its an awesome deck, and i know you have it retired, im just personally trying to make my deck a bit better tuned if i can, and was curious if you had a method to your madness haha.

Heres my deck in case you'd like to check it out for reference: Sygg, Freed from Control

no need for Hallowed Fountain , u only summon Judge of Currents with Paradise Mantle 's mana, Aether Vial protects Laboratory Maniac from counter spells and its also mana ramp like. if u already got Puresight Merrow , u can use Muddle the Mixture to tutor Judge of Currents and u can also tutor Judge of Currents to the top of your deck with Puresight Merrow + Paradise Mantle combo.

Isn’t Puresight Merrow also an infinite combo with Paradise Mantle? It doesn’t win you the game, but I guess it helps you find cards you need. You could try that if you need more Merfolk based infinite combos.

Shnuff on Retraction Helix Deck

I love messing around with Banishing Knack and Retraction Helix. Puresight Merrow can be quite devastating in my wizard deck; All-Inclusive MONO BLUE WIZ'S. I vary between running 4 and 6 Knacks/ Helix's depending on how many board-bounces I want to do before becoming 'the jerk' at the table. I've even considered Isochron Scepter so you have a reliable source of the spell. Merrow Levitator and Surgespanner can be fun aswell, and you could even go wide with many creatures and get something with a Zada, Hedron Grinder effect.
