ClockworkSwordfish, Seahunter is certainly in my list of upgrades for this deck! I don’t know why I haven’t gotten around to getting it yet. Also I’ve just discovered Reef Shaman , but Tideshaper Mystic managed to elude me, so thank you! I also hadn’t heard of Sea's Claim so thank you again for all of your suggestions!

I can't recommend Seahunter enough for any merfolk-centric deck. The ability to put any old fishy directly into play, at instant speed and heedless of its mana cost, is invaluable.

While using Donate to ensure your opponent has an island is certainly... imaginative, there are much better ways to accomplish the same. I'd run Spreading Seas , Sea's Claim , Reef Shaman and Tideshaper Mystic before considering Donate.

Cards I would recommend cutting out: Darting Merfolk, Windrider Patrol, Animation Module, Inspiring Roar, Noble Purpose, Kindred Boon, Gleam of Authority, Celestial Mantle, Brave the Sands, Leonin Sun Standard, Throne of Geth, Beacon of Immortality, Scale Blessing, Harpoon Sniper, Reef Shaman, Silvergill Douser.

All the cards I mentioned above doesn't work with the build your going for, dilutes your deck, or is too slow on the curve for it to matter.

Hope that helps!

Mana curve needs work. Seriously consider adding green for Kumena's Speaker, Cold-Eyed Selkie, Deeproot Elite, Forerunner of the Heralds, Jadelight Ranger, Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca (once it rotates out of standard and prices drop), maybe Merfolk Branchwalker, Merfolk Mistbinder, and Vineshaper Mystic.

Other nongreen cards that are cool include Aquitect's Will, Coralhelm Commander, maybe Enclave Cryptologist (little too slow?), Reef Shaman, Seafloor Oracle, Silvergill Adept, and Tidal Warrior.

4x Aquitect's Will. Just do it. If you put in the Aquitect's Will, you can get rid all of the other "land type changers". You can also search for Aquitect's Will with Merrow Harbinger (or any other merfolk) as the Will is a Tribal Sorcery. I would take out the Merfolk Sovereigns and replace them with Merrow Harbinger and/or Lullmage Mentor (if you want to counter things)/Sage of Fables. Sigil Tracer isn't bad. Neither is Wake Thrasher as it triggers for everything you untap during the untap step. Lord of Atlantis is a legendary creature, so I would add 1 Master of the Pearl Trident and take away 1 Lord of Atlantis because they do the same thing.

Get rid of: Streambed Aquitects, Reef Shaman, Merfolk of the Pearl Trident (it literally does nothing, your turn 1 play should be Aquitect's Will), Mystic Compass

Add: Aquitect's Will, Merrow Harbinger, Lullmage Mentor (only if you add more counterspells), Sigil Tracer, Wake Thrasher, Coastal Piracy (Great for drawing cards)

I'll update later, but considering Spreading Seas. Removing Rhystic Study and Tidal Courier for a modern deck is easy because other cards provide similar results. No cards works quite as well as Reef Shaman and Chain of Vapor in my opinion, a lot of really close ones but with just enough restrictions on their usage that it reduces the versatility too much for my liking. Not sure what to do there. I would likely add Lullmage Mentor, plus go for the infinite tokens with Summon the School and Stonybrook Schoolmaster.

Looks like a nice deck! I was thinking about the island walk you have going thought of Illusionary Terrain to make their lands into islands, but some more options are Tidal Warrior, Reef Shaman, Tideshaper Mystic, Streambed Aquitects, Shimmering Mirage, and Mystic Compass.

The deck has my vote :)

A good deck for budget, but Merfolk of the Pearl Trident isn't good card. Reef Shaman is better because it has synergy with Master of the Pearl Trident and can help if you need a certain color of mana.
