River Heralds' Boon Discussion

daNoodalz on Merfolk time

Add another Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, because there is low chance you'll draw the one that you have. Maybe replace some of your instants with River Heralds' Boon. Consider Deeproot Waters. Make it 3 Herald of Secret Streams. Take away all Swift Wardens as some merfolks already have hexproof, and it's only till end of turn. Replace it with Kopala, Warden of Waves, since his effect is permanent. But, remember, he's a legendary creature, so have 2-3 of him, not 1 or 4. Nice deck, keep up the good work, hope my suggestions help!

Another merfolk to consider is Kumena's Speaker. The speaker will almost always be a 2/2 for 1 mana. Your merfolk lineup is pretty stacked so it's a tough call, but you can probably do without the 3rd Kumena due to running 4 Forerunners. And Jadelight Ranger might be hard to cast on turn 3 when it would be most beneficial. I would run Watertrap Weaver over Crashing Tide for control due to it being 1 more merfolk that triggers off all your tribal stuff. Not sure where River Heralds' Boon would fit in, but it's an incredibly powerful spell if you're running 32 merfolk, and it works as a combat trick. You should put a bunch of card draw in the sideboard for grindy matchups, maybe Vanquisher's Banner too.

So it seems like the power in being in a tribe here is the "beefing up" unblockable folks and chipping in. Have you thought about trying to exploit that more? Like 4 of each of the 1mana unblockable folk, 4 Jade Bearer, 4 River Heralds' Boon and then like Mutagenic Growth and Vines of Vastwood. Then keep 4 Counterspell and go up to 4 Spreading Seas.

Hey thanks for the suggestions Alpine, sorry I didn't see your comments until now!

I really do want to replace all of my Deeproot Champion with Deeproot Elite, just need to find some cheap ones or trade with people for it. Once I do, I'll replace some of my sorceries / instants with Silvergill Adept. Same story with Jade Bearer -- I'll replace my River Heralds' Boon with her too.

I did make a few edits and added a Jadelight Ranger I got through a trade and a Swift Warden I acquired through a draft, as well as removed a Dive Down. And thanks for the suggestion about Hadana's Climb  Flip, I am definitely going to try to get one.

Ignore the previous comment, just saw it in the sideboard. I tried a similar deck yesterday and subbed in River Heralds' Boon, which helped bump up the existing counters, especially on the unblockables.

Golgari is Green black, Simic is Green Blue. I would retag your deck.

I would run Jungleborn Pioneer over Glimmer of Genius. more men on the field are better then more maybe more next turn.

I would run a few Essence Scatter to deal with the gods MB over River Heralds' Boon

I think River Heralds' Boon would fit better than Spell Pierce

Well, good for you - none of the super good merfolk are rare or mythic.

Start with 4 Merfolk Branchwalker, 4 Silvergill Adept, 4 Kumena's Speaker and 4 Merfolk Mistbinder. This is your core.

From here you have 2-3 branches - token spam with Deeproot Waters, alpha striking with Tempest Caller or low-to-the ground with protection with Swift Warden or unblockable tall with River Heralds' Boon.

I honestly think that n4 is the correct one, with a bit of number 3.

4 Blossoming Defense and 4 Swift Warden could very well compliment 4 Vineshaper Mystic, 4 River Heralds' Boon, 4 River Sneak, and 4 Mist-Cloaked Herald.
