Sleep Discussion

MonkeySit on Merfolk Deck

I would probably take out the Reliquary Tower as you don't have any card draw except for Chart a Course . I would also maybe take out Vedalken Orrery because you don't have much interaction with the battlefield at instant speed other than buffing counters on Merfolk. I feel like maybe you could reserve that spot for either other instants - maybe some more control like Negate , a bounce card, a tap permanent card, or something of the sorts. I would consider putting in Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca 100% because of your inclusion of Merrow Commerce and will make your Merfolk unbelievably strong and annoying. If you did, you could consider the Reliquary Tower but i think it would be overkill and would just be used better to replace cards as opposed to having an abundance of them. I would also consider going further down the "can't be blocked" theme. Herald of Secret Streams is a shining example and Sleep is sort of another way of achieving it. Mist-Cloaked Herald is a great early game threat and so is River Sneak and will get absolutely huge if left unchecked.

Anyway, that's just my friendly suggestions based on my limited knowledge but hope I maybe have helped in some way :)

Wutmeworry You don't have that many islands so maybe switch Engulf the Shore with Sleep or another big counter of your choice. For control decks you just probably need to increase the amount of basic counters like Negate or Spell Pierce . Syncopate is just a better Clash of Wills . I don't have I am working on currently so I'll instead plug my friends.

Hey this looks like a good start but here are some more suggestions.

Swap Tempest Caller , for something else like Sleep which makes you a drake token also.

Swap Coldsteel Heart for either Fellwar Stone or Mind Stone .

Swap Salvager of Secrets for Archaeomancer .

Swap Sage-Eye Avengers for Guile .

Swap Spiketail Drakeling for Lullmage Mentor .

Swap Hall of Triumph for maybe Coat of Arms .

Also consider swapping Perplexing Chimera for Docent of Perfection  Flip.

I will think of more over time, hope this helps!

Hey Skyler1776,

Thanks for another comment. Sorry this reply took so long, I was caught up in remaking another Standard deck.

For Deeproot Waters , I have better things to do on turn 3 then cast an enchantment that will be removed in most games and effectively does nothing.

Jadelight Ranger just feels a bit too clunky and slow. For Emma Handy, Incubation / Incongruity used to be a playset of the Jadelights. But after finding she needed more removal (as the deck had none), she added Incubation.

Hadana's Climb  Flip is bit like Deeproot Waters if you don't have two or three counters on something (impossible if this is a turn 3 play). It'll just get removed.

I think Tempest Caller is worse than Sleep because Sleep gives me two turns to beat down the opponent with littl to no oppsition, where Caller only gives us one.

Thanks again,

Hey ohmless,

As suggestions I think that you may cut the 3 Sphinx of Foresight and 2 Island s to add 2 Curious Obsession and 3 Dive Down .

Also, in the sideboard you may add some Sleep , Selective Snare , Essence Capture , Syncopate , Exclusion Mage , Jace, Cunning Castaway and Karn, Scion of Urza

Greets, TheSimikBOat.
