Have you thought of River Heralds' Boon?

It's just an average pirate joe casting Skulduggery or making some Makeshift Munitions

It's just an average merfolk joe casting the River Heralds' Boon.

Also, remember that the ability text is that creature casting spells. For example, Tishana's Wayfinder using her average joe magic to explore, while Atzocan Archer is casting a Pit Fight/Prey Upon/etc.

Putting in Kumena's Speaker and Verdurous Gearhulk instead of Jade Guardian & The Scarab God would make this deck much better IMO. I get that you'd want a hexproof dude to stack counters on but there's gotta be someone better. Also you don't have a turn one play... might as well get a 2/2 that can be a 4/4 on turn two at INSTANT speed with River Heralds' Boon

I don't think that you have enough non-creatures to benefit from Deeproot Champion, which really wants to live in a control environment with cards like River Heralds' Boon (4-of, each giving 3 counters to Deeproot). My version of a similar deck is ME Pointed Ears, which adds in a bit of card-draw to make the deck more competitive.

I think Tishana is unplayable without ramp, and then only maybe. I think Deeproot Champion is a 4 play, it's about the best merfolk, especially with all those instants. Find a way to have 4 Essence Scatter cause you can't deal with big creatures or all the gods out there. Open Into Wonder is your finisher. River Heralds' Boon can go to make room for it.

River Heralds' Boon is a very potent card to have in the sideboard and I will certainly consider it. What do you recommend I cut for it, and what matchup does it come in for?

Essence Scatter: This is just not the deck to leave up mana on turn two. If my opponent makes a very big creature, I can just Unsummon it. Thanks for the suggestions.

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I just have one comment: River Heralds' Boon looks like a good card in a Merfolk deck, but 2 mana for 2 +1/+1 counters isn't all that good of a deal. Have you considered running Unsummon, Perilous Voyage, and/or Disallow as disruption instead?

Just throwing this out there, one cast of River Heralds' Boon is legit 3 counters on your Deeproot Champion at INSTANT speed for TWO mana. If anything, this card should be in your sideboard at the very least.

Other than that the idea is very solid. Keep him alive with everything and eventually swing in. Only issue is if the enemy gets out big guys faster than you can grow him. because of that I'd say either mainboard or sideboard in two copies of Essence Scatter to make sure your opponant doesn't have that opportunity.
