Enchanted land is an Island.

Compared to Spreading Seas , Aquitect's Will isn't good enough also it makes it an island in addition and not turn of Tron for example or turn of ghost quarters/mutavaults etc...

Needs Master of the Pearl Trident , Silvergill Adept and Master of Waves . They are all really strong, and not running 4 of each of the former and 2-4 Master of Waves is stupid. Also some 1-drops would be beneficial, either Mistcaller s, Cursecatcher s or Benthic Biomancer s. Seafloor Oracle , Stonybrook Banneret and Streambed Aquitects are probably best left home.

Spreading Seas , you need it badly. It enables islandwalk and shuts off certain colours. Aether Vial is also essential, but if its out of your budget, you should do fine without it in casual environments. Some counterspells are also ran in Merfolk decks. Try Spell Pierce , Mana Leak , Deprive or Wizard's Retort .

I'm honored that you liked this enough to build it. I think you made the right choices for Spreading Seas replacements. How has it ran with 22 lands?

Foil isn't modern legal.

your deck kinda vanished for a bit when I was first writing this comment, there was a bit more depth in when I first typed this out, but me more tired now than before lol.

Now maindecking Duress would be rather good vs tier 1 lists outside of humans.

Bojuka Bog is rather good as a means to graveyard hate for a deck that still wants access to it's graveyard for delve.

Striped Riverwinder or Whirlwind Adept could be viable wincons for the topend to deal with single target removal from slower decks.

Spreading Seas is about the only land hate spell that's viable to fight tron and other decks with strong lands at common.

Peek could be an interesting option vs opt, the information of your opponent's hand could be vastly more important than a scry 1.

Logic Knot is rather good of a counterspell with a delve theme.

Hieroglyphic Illumination a pretty good card advantage spell used by usually w/u control, early game it fuels delve, late game you can gain card advantage at instant speed.

Considering that the majority of the cards you are using are currently in standard at the moment I'd recommend looking at some of the things they are doing with them. Stuff like Silvergill Adept for example. If you want to play merfolk in modern however there are a few cards that are pretty important and it's typically better to stay in mono blue from my understanding. Lord of Atlantis and Master of the Pearl Trident to name a few. Spreading Seas in combination with those two can be pretty nasty. Aether Vial is pretty nice as well but defiantly not budget, well at least not for me.

Never tried Logic Knot in this deck but I've been unhappy with it in other decks. It's one of those cards that can be dead a lot of the time and you wish you drew anything else.

Never actually played Disrupting Shoal in any deck but I'm not the biggest fan of cards that don't function independently.

I really don't think this deck needs more counters but if I was going to add some it would probably be 2x Cryptic Command.

If you're just looking for something to put in over Spreading Seas, I'd suggest Snapcaster Mage, Nimble Obstructionist, Vendilion Clique, more Cyclonic Rift, Think Twice, Squelch or Tempest Djinn.

I think -2 Toils of Night and Day, -1 Spreading Seas (or something like that) and at least +3 Psychic Venom could help.

Opt could be another cheap option for more draw (beyond the obvious crap like Preordain).

Oh and maybe Echoing Truth for the sideboard against weenies. And something to combat aura hexproof and protection and stuff like that.

I like the idea too, so I hope some of that helps. Let me know how it performs. =)

I'm not a fan of CoCo in this deck because the chances of missing are too great. With only 12 creatures and a more reactive spell package, it doesn't fit for me. I do like Spreading Seas however, as it stalls and cantrips in one package.
