Dr_Hix on My Little Merfolk

It seems like your Herald of Secret Streams isn't doing much, because your other cards don't give +1/+1 counters, only +1/+1 as a static/triggered ability.

Your creatures and non-creature spells also look to be at odds: your creatures are very aggro, while it seems the rest of your deck is much more controlling. It might be better to either lean into the aggro side of things and replace your counterspells with unblockable instants, perhaps splashing into green for pump spells and more pumping merfolk; or lean into the control side, and replace things like Shaper Apprentice with Wind Strider and Tempest Caller.

Sweepers begone.

Kopala really offers a lot of protection, and while i did want to add trickster to the main deck, a problem i ran into doing so is a clunky mana curve. Curving Kumena's Speaker into trickster can be hard. Forerunner of the Heralds is a bit slow as a four-drop compared to Tempest Caller since it does not impact the board directly. Jade Bearer does have the problem of being a bad card on turn one, so i might just run 4 Kumena's Speakers.

Definitely need at least 3 Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. I would also drop the Forerunner of the Heralds in favor of Deeproot Elite, and add Silvergill Adept as at least a 3 of for the card draw, and you definitely need Merfolk Mistbinder for the lord ability. Ancient Animus doesn't really fit your build because you don't have any legends, so I would honestly drop it. I would also drop Opt as you will have the card draw from the Adept. The last thing you might isadding in Tempest Caller for that late game push instead of banking on making your creatures unblockable. In the games that I played with Herald of Secret Streams I rarely lasted long enough to make it worth it (Those Goblin Chainwhirlers are insane!)

Driven does look amazing, it'd go well with Shapers' Sanctuary or Pitiless Plunderer, and would also allow for Heroic Intervention.

Open into wonder- it depends, in my mind tetsuko is just a strictly better Tempest Caller. Honestly I'd say they are on par. The fact it draws cards is great but if we swing with 3 rats keep in mind that's 12 damage. The deck can already draw as many rats as it wants.

The best anthem here would be Path of Discovery. That being said ideally we have 1 island/swamp dual land and 4 swamps on turn 5. A playset of Woodland Cemetery though would alleviate this...

It does go away from the build around but yeah I can easily see a more viable version of this in B/G Golgari.

What about adding some Walk the Plank cards for a defensive option? Also Blinding Fog.

I would add at least one more Herald of Secret Streams. Possibly do the same for Tempest Caller.

Deeproot Waters could help you multiply the amount of Merfolk you have on the battlefield.

+1 Deeproot Elite

+2 Hadana's Climb  Flip

Although you wouldn't be able to activate the second part of the card. Appeal would make one devastating creature for a turn.

Vanquisher's Banner would help, its a bit expensive, but every time you play a Merfolk creature, you would draw a card. Another option would be Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

Kumena's Speaker isn't actually receiving a +1/+1 counter so it would not work with Herald of Secret Streams unless you added a counter to it separately.

This was before you removed all of the Merfolk creatures. I felt it would have worked with some adjustment.

jessniem on What card do I choose? ...

I have an Inalla deck and have some problems choosing between some cards. What cards do you think is the best in my/a Inalla deck?

Magus of the Mind vs Magus of the Will

AEther Adept vs Sedraxis Alchemist vs Harbinger of the Tides

And is there any of these wizards that you think I should absolutely run, and remove something else? I'm not sure if they are more value than the wizards I already run.
