So what is some extremely underplayed card or cards you use in your decks? Or synergies that you use that you see no where else?

My current favorite is using Perilous Vault in my Mairsil, the Pretender deck! It gets pretty mana intense after 2 or 3 uses but frankly when I have the ultimate board wipe locked away in a cage it only takes 2 or 3 uses before my opponents resources are basically spent.

Another one is Teferi's Protection and Spellbinder . It is difficult to pull together sometimes and protection gets played everywhere by everyone. But I've not seen anyone else put it under spellbinder. I'll grant that it is mostly just for the luls.

There's also the famous Spellbinder + Savage Beating Infinite Combat step combat.

I didn't recommend it above cause Gruul doesn't have reliable tutors and assembling them can be difficult. Just putting them here for completeness sake.

Quicksilver Fountain is another way to turn on islandwalk and slow down opponents' at the same time.

Being able to connect consistently with combat damage opens up some fun avenues to explore. Coastal Piracy and Bident of Thassa for card advantage; equipment like Sword of the Animist, Quietus Spike, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Mask of Memory, Prying Blade, Rogue's Gloves, Specter's Shroud, and Spellbinder all give different options depending on what you feel you need more of; and for redundancy Thassa, God of the Sea is clutch.

I cannot imagine merfolk do not engage with sea monsters and they would definitely give you some late-game push. Ones that spring to mind are Scourge of Fleets, Stormsurge Kraken, Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep, and Stormtide Leviathan.

In addition to your pillowfort pieces I would also consider AEtherize to bounce an attack and Equilibrium to bounce threats as you play your merfolk.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh could be potent with all of your sideways turning. To complement this fact and reinforce merfolk's weaknesses (aka aerial anything) vehicles could work. Smuggler's Copter comes readily to mind.

Haha right?, I always like spicy tech cards that can be used to do interesting things, let me know how it goes if you decide to test it out! xD

Same thing with the synergy with Teferi's Protection and Spellbinder would have never found that combo out if I didn't take a look at your page! ^^

Echo Mage and Mirari perhaps? Maybe Isochron Scepter, Bosium Strip and Spellbinder.

May I make a suggestion... I have been looking for cool cards that react to Player damage and I found one that goes super nasty with my Sygg, River Cutthroat deck and work equally well with your deck.

so what I have is a deck mainly consisting of unblockable creatures. and since Sygg is I get to play with blue. Spellbinder + any of the instance's you have can cause some pretty cool effects. Spellbinder + Worldly Tutor... well thats free creature tutor every combat.

this is just an idea that might peak your interest

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is an amazing card for ramping and stealing combo pieces.

Sigil of Sleep, Knowledge Exploitation, Cloak and Dagger

I use Spellbinder in my ninja deck and it scares the hell out of people (it draws a lot of hate). I love that card.

Shapesharer can go in unblocked and then copy anything.

I'm finding Quietus Spike a bit too slow for all the hate it draws and I'm thinking Spellbinder can replace it along with some heavy hitting instants like Supplant Form or Scour from Existence and Nexus of Fate as a win condition. Anyone have any experience with Spellbinder and how'd it work out for you?
