Slither Blade Discussion

Looks good. Slither Blade is just a little bit better than Triton Shorestalker. Since your deck doesnt have any three drops, I think you could go down to three lands, maybe 1 island, 1 plains and 1 Tranquil Cove. Just some suggestions.

Generally speaking it would not be recommended to run Blighted Agent and normal damage in the same deck, as it often dilutes your overall gameplan. If you curve Slither Blade into Blighted Agent, rather than being able to attack your opponent for two on the third turn (without pumps, assuming you played a two mana one power creature without infect) instead you would be only attacking for one and one infect.

It also just makes your opponents life easier. They see you play the agent and they don't have to worry about it for a long time if your main kill condition is regular damage. Or conversely they answer your infect creatures and you end up stuck with less creatures that deal regular damage.

I would suggest Ninja of the Deep Hours, it can draw you cards (which is awesome) gets sneaky with your unblockable critters, and is also a ninja, which is just fearsome.

I would be a fan of moving the Bonesplitter from the maybeboard to the main deck, it hits fairly hard.

Also I probably wouldn't run Explorer's Scope in this deck, with a fairly low to the ground curve, and ability to cast multiple spells a turn with Hidden Strings you're probably not going to need the extra land and you'll end up spending a card (the scope) and some mana to just equip it and not profit that much.

At which point, as much as I like the card, I have to recognize Trepanation Blade isn't that good. It's a prohibitively expensive card to cast and equip (five mana in modern should give you a very good chance of winning the game). While not an economical choice if you did you could go with one of the sword cycles, which also prevent your creatures from getting destroyed sometimes while also being heavy hitters. See: Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of War and Peace, Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Feast and Famine, my favorites out of these would be Fire and Ice or Feast and Famine because they do provide some direct interaction in the form of adding a card to your arsenal or taking one away from your opponent. I understand they are somewhat pricy, instead you might go more along the lines of the Bonesplitter route and add some of those as well as Darksteel Axe.

Hello there! I don't see anything huge you're missing (other than lands), but I definitely think you should at least consider Sol Ring, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Eternal Witness, Mystical Tutor, Plasm Capture, Counterspell, and probably Blue Sun's Zenith and Stroke of Genius as well. If you're looking for cards to cut to make room for lands, I would start with the following. A lot of those cards are for what appears to be an Edric subtheme; I'd stick to just one plan, making a lot of mana and killing your opponents with it.

In any case, good luck! Feel free to let me know if you want some more suggestions!

Let's see, I'm not sure what cards you should cut, but I do know some good cards you could use. I can see this deck have 3 different outcomes. An unblockable deck with Slither Blade, River Sneak, and Storm Sculptor. The typical Merfolk deck with Deeproot Champion, Deeproot Waters, and Kopala, Warden of Waves. Or something else. Opt, Negate, Chart a Course, and Glimmer of Genius are some blue staples. Not sure for green.

I might switch out Slither Blade for Invisible Stalker, but I'm not trading it for Ferropede because the Ferropede is colorless mana, and blue mana is less reliable to draw than colorless mana.

Ok, so Mindmelter is only in there to push the last few points of damage in. I was running a Slither Blade instead for a while, but it did not work well when I used Illusory Wrappings or Reduce in Stature on the tree so I decided to swap Slither Blade out for Mindmelter. The best way to kill your opponent tho is Bump in the Night.

as the main goal for your creatures is to trigger raid, wouldn't Slither Blade be better? I know it wouldn't be strictly on theme, but it just seems so much better than Dreamcaller Siren for example

I've played a few rounds with the deck. I want it to be viable so badly, but it really gets wrecked by almost every deck. I snuck through one victory versus a creature heavy deck that didn't know what I was up to then get mana screwed game two. The only time this has come through was Slither Blade turn 1, then manage to stick a Navigator's Ruin while Fraying Sanity was out, with a little help from Compelling Argument. But the slightest disruption completely ends the game. Dowsing Dagger is just too slow and I have never gotten even close to a Fleet Swallower.

Anyway, I can say the game I won was magical!
